Estranged Patriots

Imagine leaving for work one morning and returning home at night only to find that your key no longer works. Worse yet, picture travelling abroad to fight for your country only to find upon your return a landscape unrecognizable. Just the idea that people with whom you have co-habited could so casually change your home is tragic, and the act by those people unconscionable. Yet, it is happening right now, and not only to the recently returned; it is happening to people who have never left.

The lineage of my "discovery" is traced back first to Drudge, then to a blog titled I Own the World, and ultimately to an entity referred to as "@Racist", to whom I regrettably have no link. But the discovery is stunning, nonetheless.

What @Racist posted was an alarming display of blatant disregard for this nation's founding, and a glimpse into the mindset of those who do not revere our founding and worse, consider it archaic.

Amazon is selling a copy of the U.S. Constitution, combined with the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, with a disclaimer by the publisher. That publisher is Wilder Publications, and their "warning to parents" of children who may read the original documents states the following:

This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as if it were written today. Parents may wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity and and interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work.
A scanned copy of the caveat is seen here:

What I find tragic is the fact that as we offer our young access to the Founders responsible for their freedom, some feel compelled to warn their parents of the possible perceived "harm" they may experience through reading the original intent of the same benefactors of our splendor.

What is obvious is the plan by the Progressive establishment to uproot everything this country was based upon in an attempt to remake it in their own socialist image. It is a task they have undertaken by way of seeking to dilute the rules by which America was formed through claims that those rules were meant for our ancestors and not for us. It is a task bolstered by their insistence that the Constitution is a "living, breathing document", one susceptible to the whims of modern Man.

The incredible success of our relatively young nation is owed to nothing other than our traditional adherence to the laws set before us. For the first 165 years, we followed them to the letter. We flourished as a result. Has anyone noticed that our decline began the moment we deviated from the course laid out before us?
