Have you ever wondered how this great nation departed from our enlightened founding values and got so far off course?
Have you ever wondered how an informed and free people such as those in America could ever get sold on the notion of trading their freedom and the rule of law, for the bankrupt promises of liberalism and slavery to government?
In just 10 minutes, Cato Institute Director of the Center of Constitutional Studies Roger Pilon provides an insightful summary of how we came to trade freedom for servitude, and the rule of law for the rule of corrupt men.
In short: we stood by and allowed corrupt socialists in our own government to pervert and eviscerate the protections provided to us by the founders in the U.S. Constitution.
The lesson: when you don’t know the WHY behind your values and beliefs, you’re easy prey for the designs of evil men who will rob you of everything you hold dear.
The question for today: can the American people again learn these WHYs, and is it too late?

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
