BTTT! Yet another reason for supporting FR. These truths have been buried and are not taught to the children or even adults for that matter.
Education is the answer. We must kick the left out of the process of deciding what values are taught to our children.

The general Principles, on which the Fathers Atchieved Independence, were the only Principles in which that beautiful Assembly of young Gentlemen could Unite,
and these Principles only could be intended by them in their Address, or by me in my Answer.
And what were these general Principles?

I answer, the general Principles of Christianity, in which all those Sects were united: And the general Prin...ciples of English and American Liberty,
in which all those young Men United, and which had United all Parties in America, in Majorities sufficient to assert and maintain her Independence.

Now I will avow, that I then believed, and now believe, that those general Principles of Christianity, are as eternal and immutable, as the Existence and Attributes of God;
and that those Principles of Liberty, are as unalterable as human Nature and our terrestrial, mundane System.

John Adams, Letter to Thomas Jefferson, 28 June 1813

Silent Cal was cool. So is google for finding cool quotes:

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

― Calvin Coolidge

Keep the Faith!!

We Shall Fight on the Beaches

We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans,
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air,
we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe,
this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas,
armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time,
the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.

The thing about FR is that we are just too stupid and stubborn to realize that it can't be done. I'm neither talented or educated but I have stupid and stubborn down pat.

“I have found it advisable not to give too much heed to what people say when I am trying to accomplish something of consequence. Invariably they proclaim it can't be done. I deem that the very best time to make the effort.”

― Calvin Coolidge

Press on for God and Country!!

Like my Dad always told us. Success is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.

I thank God every day for my parents teaching us their values and my early educators in school, teaching about the virtues of persistence.

Watched a short movie on The Crossing just a couple nights ago:

The drama is about George Washington crossing the Delaware River and the Battle of Trenton during the American Revolutionary War. The film opens with the retreat of the Continental Army across New Jersey after repeated losses and defeats during the campaign of 1776.

After the army narrowly escapes across the river to the Pennsylvania shore, Washington, realizing that something must be done or the Revolution will collapse, conceives a plan to cross the river and conduct a surprise attack on the Hessian garrison at Trenton.

Despite their own fatigue and the winter weather, Washington manages to lift his weary soldiers’ spirits, allowing the army to cross the river on Christmas night. The crossing is done in one night, allowing the troops to attack Trenton at eight o’ clock on December 26, 1776, and gains a stunning victory, capturing almost all the Hessians to their own advantage

I recently read a short summary of that battle and the awful weather they had to overcome that night. It was genius and against all odds.

Thanks for the link!

Near the beginning of this Thon my little brother did some research and found that our 5th and 4th Great-Grandfathers were in the Maryland regiment in George Washington's army.
Part of the old line. They both survived the war.
I'm still stunned and very proud of them.
