In a review of history,
Transgressors were tared and feathered
In violations of public trust
the founders were learned, principled, courageous and pioneers.
None apply to the current NY mayor..
The founderers wre not the nobles of the era.
They didn't BUY their way.....
They despised the NOBLE role and ensured the common man a role in his destiny.
It took guns and skills to ensure these rights,
The little fact, the US Constitution has more roots than ,Bloomberg ever will..
ROOTS in the Constitution, ensured with courage, sealed with their blood.
PRINCIPLES, not commonly found today,......

Answer: Do we have a U.S. Constitution and country?
In 1788, James Madison, the father of the Bill of Rights and our fourth president, reflected a year back on the Constitutional Convention and even earlier on the founding of the republic:The real wonder is, that so many difficulties should have been surmounted; and surmounted with a unanimity almost as unprecedented as it must have been unexpected. It is impossible for any man of candor to reflect on this circumstance, without partaking of the astonishment. It is impossible for the man of pious reflection not to perceive in it, a finger of that Almighty hand which has been so frequently and signally extended to our relief in the critical stages of the revolution.
Our enemy is no longer Great Britain. But we have equally, if not more, powerful enemies within and without the U.S., and we are even more divided than in Americas beginnings. But whether local, national or international entities, are those enemies more powerful than the Almighty? Are their manipulations and sway beyond His reach? Has their darkness so overshadowed us that even Providence cannot lead us out? Are their conniving politics, propaganda and Ponzi schemes really more powerful than prayer? Have we fell prey to their lies that our prayers are now impotent and ineffective to change the course of history? And how does our participation in that age-old intercessory practice answer all those questions?
