Before the Truth Can Get Its Shoes On

The following photo of a poster showed up on Face Book October 18.

I only became aware of it today. As of now it is approaching 8000 repeat postings generating an uncountable sum of agreeable comments and "Likes." This BS ought not go unchallenged. Let me start and encourage more of you to do the same.

Those who know the truth of American history will immediately recognize the lies and half truths presented.

This news relates another avenue being used by the forces of Statism to pass off propaganda to the vast number of uneducated sheeple. Because of its use of "hope" and "change" in its message, I'd guess the effort is aimed at helping the floundering Obama administration. But what do I know for sure?

What I know is the history that proves that this poster is a lie. I wish I could send my proof to each of the "Likes" at FB and get them to read it, but this is the best I can do for now.

The lies and half truths start from the very top of this poster.

The original constitution was NOT fully ratified until the bill of Rights was well along the road to being adopted. That famously included its first amendment "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; ...." There was a rush to replace the Articles of Confederation to strengthen  the central government to, among other things, adequately pay its debts to foreign debtors who had aided us during the Revolutionary War and in the intervening years. Some states ratified with the proviso that the constitution be Amended shortly. Indeed, some of the 13 states did not sign off until that process was well under way. The public fear of a overly powerful central government would have led to a the constitution having failed had not the bill of rights been amended to it as rapidly as it was. What this poster calls "the original constitution" was a constitution in proviso. Most all states who'd signed it would have seceded long before 1861 had the Bill of Rights not been adopted.

In God We Trust began appearing on our coins just after the Civil War. It should not surprise anyone if part of the reasoning was because of the dislike of union greenbacks and the then worthlessness of Confederate script. Man's fear and greed may have no limits upon how much currency he'll print and credit he'll seek. But God, in His wisdom, has limited the amount of gold. Hence: "In God We Trust."

All in all this post is filled with Anti-American propaganda. I'll leave to my readers to comment further on all the false and misleading items as they attempt to spread the truth of this slick agitprop. It appears designed to divide Americans from each other. Divisions among the people is the despots number one ally.

    And the boys in blue were the last American army to march into combat with the name of our Savior on their lips.

    In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
    With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
    As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
    While God is marching on.

    Glory, glory, hallelujah!
    Glory, glory, hallelujah!
    Glory, glory, hallelujah!
    While God is marching on.
