The Pursuit of Happiness

This month I have been studying, highlighting and making notations in the margins of two books I would highly recommend to everyone. The books are: "The 5,000 Year Leap: Principles of Freedom 101" and "The Making of America". Both books are distributed by the National Center for Constitutional Studies and can be purchased here.

George Washington said, "The power under the Constitution will always be in the people... and whenever it is executed contrary to their interest, their servants can, and undoubtedly will, be recalled."

To see this quote come to pass we, the people, have to become educated once again as to this magnificent document that is to guide the governing of our country. In my reading I am amazed how far off the mark we are already as a country. It is my hope that you will accept my invitation and take time to learn of how we can, together, make a difference.

If you either live in or will be in the Dallas, Texas area on August 28, 2010 there will be a "Making of America" Seminar with guest speaker, Mr. Andy Biggs. Mr. Biggs is a member of the Arizona State Legislature and a speaker from NCCS. The cost will be $15 per person or $35 for a family. For more information on "Making of America" seminars - this site will allow you to either schedule a speaker or find a seminar in your area.

Great comment, and very worth cause. I'll look up these books.

I was just talking with some friends the other night who are living overseas in Korea and who were back visiting family in the United States. There's no place like the USA, but it's sad to see how our American culture and the pillars that our country was built upon are being neglected and tossed aside by those who are supposed to represent the people.

Unless more good people become active in local and national politics, the United States we have loved for generations may not be there for our children and grandchildren.
