Marshall’s Law Dateline – Reminder for reader, separation of state and church and separation of church and state are as different as night and day. Separation of state and church, not church and state was and still is America’s first tradition.
Texas Drifter is feeling all written out so offers reader the following excerpts by Samuel Adams: “What Independence Means”. Warren and Montgomery, mentioned in last paragraph, were American generals killed early in the war, Warren at Bunker Hill and Montgomery at the storming of Quebec.
… This day we are called on to give a glorious example of what the wisest and best men were rejoiced to view only in speculation. … Other nations have received their laws from conquerors; the people of this country alone have formally and deliberately chosen a government for themselves, and, with open uninfluenced consent, bound themselves into a social compact.
And, fellow-countrymen, if ever it was granted to mortals to trace the designs of Providence and interpret its manifestations in favor of their cause, we may, with humility of soul cry out, “Not unto us, not unto us, but to Thy name be praise.” The confusion of the devices of our enemies, and the rage of elements against them; have done almost as much towards our success as either our counsels or arms.
The time at which this attempt on our liberties is made, - we are ripened into maturity, have acquired knowledge of defense and will be free from incursions of our intestine enemies. … Driven from every corner of the earth, freedom of thought and right to private judgment in matters of conscience direct their course to this happy country as their last asylum. Let us cherish noble guests! Let us shelter them under the wing of universal toleration! Be this the seat of “unbounded Religious Freedom”! She will bring in her train, Industry, Wisdom, and Commerce.
… We have in the field armies sufficient to repel the whole force of our enemies. The hearts of our soldiers beat high with the spirit of freedom. Go on, then, in your success, in your generous enterprise, with gratitude for Heaven for past success, and confidence in the future!
For my own part, I ask no greater blessing than to share with you the common danger and the common glory. If I have a wish dearer to my soul than that my ashes be mingled with those of a Warren and Montgomery, it is that our American States may never cease to be free and independent!
End Samuel Adams excerpts. Being all written out does not mean Texas Drifter lacks ability to ask reader following assignment question. The oath Obama will never take in public with his hand on Holy Bible before God, the American people, and upon his children's honor; is I (Obama) will never: corrupt or attempt to corrupt; or allow my Attorney General Holder or any of my (Obama's) allies to corrupt or try to corrupt 2012 Presidential elections. Why Obama being a false prophet has no respect for the one true God, American people or America’s traditions, or anyone else. True or False
