Our God-Given, NOT Government Given, Rights
A Prayer for Those in Public Office
"May Those generations whose faces we cannot yet see, whose names we may never know, say of us here that we led our beloved land into a new century with the American Dream alive for all her children; with the American promise of a more perfect union a reality for all her people; with America's bright flame of freedom spreading throughout all the world. From the height of this place and the summit of this century, let us go forth. May God strengthen our hands for the good work ahead--and always, always, bless our America. Amen."

Contemporary positions to the contrary, there can be no argument that our Founders not only understood that our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of
Happiness come not from the pen of man, but from the CREATOR of the universe. That they also understood the need for religious tolerance should have no bearing on the importance of GOD in the formation and continued success of the United States of America.
This nation’s foundation is embedded in the rock of ages. While we will accept as citizens and resident those of differing religious viewpoints (or no religion at all) - and we understand that the Constitution makes it clear that we must establish no official national religion, we are only as strong as our Faith in God and our belief that all things and all rights are derived directly and only from Him.
The only thing UpWithAmericaTM is more committed to than reviving the honor and principles of our founders, is reviving the truth that, as John F. Kennedy said, “here on earth, God’s work must truly be our own.”
