Mr. Walsh did a nice job trying to answer a tough question. I was very impressed that the he stopped the crowed from getting out of control. However, it is clear the Mr. Walsh does not understand the basic history of this country. Give it a listen and let us know what you think.
Here is what Joe Walsh thinks…
From the Framers of the Constitution of the United States – 28 fundamental beliefs of the Founding Fathers; it was their belief these must be understood and perpetuated by every people who desired peace, prosperity, and freedom
28 Fundamental beliefs? Where was that written? His site does not have a citation.
Principle 4 – Without religion the government of a free people cannot be maintained.
uh.. NO! They were scared of religion and the control that it could have on government.
Principle 5 – All things were created by God, therefore upon him all mankind are equally dependent, and to him they are equally responsible.
Hell NO! This is not in the constitution. The constitution starts with “We the people….”
Principle 6 – All mankind were created equal.
While I agree that all people are equal – this is not a christian value. These are the same people that said black are only 3/5 of a person.
Principle 8 – Mankind are endowed by God with certain unalienable rights.
Again… Not in the constitution.
Principle 9 – To protect human rights, God has revealed a code of divine law.
What the fuck? Where is this code? The 10 commandments? #1 You shall worship no other god – we don’t have that as law – FAIL!
Principle 10 – The God-given right to govern is vested in the sovereign authority of the whole people.
NO! The right to govern is granted by the people!
Principle 23 – A free society cannot survive as a republic without a broad program of general education.
Wait… What? OK! I like this one!
Principle 28 – The United States has a manifest destiny to eventually become a glorious example of God’s law under a restored Constitution that will inspire the entire human race.
Can you say theocrat? This guy needs to be voted out!
