Post Election Reflections – Plus

11-10- 18 Post Election Reflections – Plus

On this program I am doing quick Post Election Reflections – Plus I indent to develop the more critical conversation of how did we get here and where are we going? InElection Reflections the First reference link for today’s program is a well written article to the subjects of ‘the power elite’ and a chasm of ‘knowledge gap’, which I have spoke of in many of my other programs such as: Education For A Modern Republic, Educating Sam Adams and Thoughts Upon The Mode Of Education Proper In A Republic.

As part of the discussion on education that I want to reference is this article which must be memorialized and read by everyone who get this newsletter: “Knowles: Dem Socialists Pushing to Infiltrate Schools Because ‘They Can’t Win in the Battle of Ideas’ – ‘If they teach history, they’re going to lose.’” This article is another key to what occurred This past Tuesday and is critical in the Post Election Reflections that MUST be addressed as we move to 2020.

10-20-18 Ageless Constitution and Voting

Ageless Constitution and Voting

We do have an Ageless Constitution that is most pertinent to the present. It is timeless in Principles. A most Critical discussion during the 1787 debates was and continues to be on Voting.

What does ‘Suffrage’ mean? How do we maintain the equity in Voting? And is our Constitution Timeless – Ageless?

I discuss all of these questions on this program. The concept of ‘Suffrage’ was heavily debated and James Madison is our primary arbiter in this discussion. It is critical to hear what Mason has to say to understand how important the right to vote is and that we need moral and virtuous Citizens that can develop into moral and virtuous elected representatives.

With that said: The mirrors of history come to reflective reality here on Samuel Adams Returns.

And because you keep asking!

7-14-18 Swamp Update and Sam Adams on Voting

This week is simple: In the first segment I give a quick update from the founders perspective on the Supreme Court Nomination and the hellacious noises from the Court steps to the main stream media. The last two segments are regarding ‘What’ Sam Adams had to say about voting and how we should vet candidates as well as develop future leaders through morality in education. He said this: “As Piety, Religion and Morality have a happy influence on the minds of men, in their public as well as private transactions, you will not think it unseasonable, although I have frequently done it, to bring to your remembrance the great importance of encouraging our University, town schools, and other seminaries of education, that our children and youth while they are engaged in the pursuit of useful science, may have their minds impressed with a strong sense of the duties they owe to their God, their instructors and each other, so that when they arrive to a state of manhood, and take a part in any public transactions, their hearts having been deeply impressed in the course of their education with the moral feelings—such feelings may continue and have their due weight through the whole of their future lives.”

References for today are the four volumes of Sam Adams writings:
