FAITH, FREEDOM AND OUR FOUNDING FATHERS
Beth Ann Blogging & Talking – September 8, 2014
CSC Talk Radio continues on our mission to BRING AMERICA HOME© ~ Knowing where we come from and the foundation of our nation is a large part of doing this.

Today’s show touched on many topics briefly – it is my plan to make John a regular on CSC Talk Radio to help us with our history and help us know our Constitution.
The Faith of our Founding Fathers has been a constant debate. John bringsthe truth of their faith to the forefront and helps all of us kn
ow and understand exactly where they stood.
It is interesting to note, as well, that our Founding Fathers did not agree on many political and governing points and ideals – they did however manage to focus on God & Liberty for a new nation.
The difference in the men who were establishing and nation and those elected now to keep and watch over it… the first men were committed to the nation and not to their lives and careers. They truly were the men of old who planted trees (trees of liberty) whose shade they truly did not enjoy. The current elected (generally speaking) are committed to their careers as politicians and furthering the climb up that ladder of such. They are not led by morals and beliefs but seem to be led by power and greed.
Listen to this show and look forward to Professor Eidsmoe
as a regular on CSC Talk Radio!
We truly must come together, as our
Founding Fathers were able to do, and BRING AMERICA HOME©
