We have another presidential debate tonight. We're also at the half-way point in the 40 Days of Prayer campaign. America decides in just over two weeks.  Liberty matters.
Revisit the Preamble to the United States Constition, "done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present on the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven..."
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
America's First
 Secretary to the Treasury
Founding Father and one of the three authors of the Federalist Papers, Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804), wrote this concerning liberty:
"The fundamental source of all your efforts, sophisms, and false reasonings is total ignorance of the natrual rights of mankind.  Were you once to become acquainted with these, you could never entertain a thought that all men are not, by nature, entitled to a parity of priviliges.  You would be convinced that natural liberty is a gift of the beneficient Creator to the whole human race, and that civil liberty is founded in that and cannot be wrestled from any people without the most manifest violation of justice."
Patriot's Prayer: Grant us strength, dear Father, that we may be able to provide the blessings of liberty to our children and our children's children.  Help us all to understand that our liberty first comes from You, Creator God, as a gift never to be wrenched from our being.
Patriot's Promise: "And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth, For I have hoped in Your ordinances. So shall I keep Your law continually Forever and ever. And I will walk at liberty, for I seek Your precepts." ~Psalm 119:43-45
