George Washington’s Ascension to Heaven

John Gast's American Progress

"In John Gast's 'American Progress,' a diaphanously and precariously clad American floats westward thru the air with the "Star of Empire" on her forehead.  She has left the cities of the East behind, and the wide Mississippi, and still her course is westward. In her right hand she carries a school book, testimonial of the National Enlightenment, while with her left hand she trails the slender wires of the telegraph that will bind the nation.  Fleeing her approach are Indians, buffalo, wild horses, bears, and other game, disappearing into the storm and waves of the Pacific Coast.  They flee the wondrous vision - the Star 'is too much for them.'"

Three Huge Mistakes America's Founders Made
and why you must avoid them

We have great respect for America's Founding Fathers, but we're not interested in deifying them, as some Americans have done. (See the paintings at left.)

In fact, we think America's Founders all made some really huge mistakes. Mistakes that we're still paying for today. Mistakes that could very soon hurl our entire economy into meltdown, and our society into chaos, with international repercussions.

We want you to be transformed and succeed in achieving Samuel Adams' goals. But Samuel Adams made some big mistakes.

  • He joined men like John Hancock and Paul Revere to protest British trade and tax policies in an event that can only be described as an unChristian act of vandalism ("The Boston Tea Party"). 
  • Adams went on to become known as "The Father of the American Revolution," a violent war that saw Christians killing Christians over the most pitifully insignificant taxes in U.S. history.
  • Not listening to the arguments of Patrick Henry ("Give me liberty or give me death!")  George Mason ("Father of the Bill of Rights") and the "anti-federalists," Sam Adams supported the Constitution of 1789. This Constitution would eventually produce the Bush-Obama Regime, an evil, atheistic tyranny.

I want to  believe Samuel Adams was a better man that all that. I think he would see where his mistakes led, and would repudiate them. Were he alive today, he would work to repeal the Constitution, abolish the government it created, and do this without vandalizing a tea company, picking up a musket, or igniting a canon, consistent with the best ideals of the Declaration of Independence.

We'll make it easier to remember these three huge mistakes by summarizing them in three words that begin with "R."
