My family keeps a simple-looking, large, Office Depot desk calendar in the kitchen with all of the varying work and school schedules, birthday reminders, and activities we have for the month. A while ago, as I was looking at the upcoming month of September, I scanned the page and felt that something seemed amiss.John Birch Society News

"Let’s see,” I thought to myself while looking, “there’s Labor Day” (for both Canada and the U.S.), “and I see Patriot Day (September 11), Mexico’s Declaration of Independence Day (September 15), and Mexico’s Independence Day (September 16).”
Even Mexico’s Anniversary of the Constitution on February 5th made the cut — but not America’s Constitution Day.
Go ye, enquire of the Lord for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found: for great is the wrath of the Lord that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not hearkened unto the words of this book, to do according unto all that which is written concerning us.
For Americans living today, taking out the Constitution and reading it after not having done so for a very long time can produce a “Josiah Experience” — a sobering realization that we have ignored something of priceless value, and which will bring about serious consequences if we continue to do so.
Vazsonyi, a world-renowned concert pianist, historian, and Hungarian-born immigrant to the United States, had experienced firsthand the evils of both Nazism and Communism while as a child, and spelled out in great detail how we are following them down the same self-immolating path.
Articles I and X [“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…” and “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution…are reserved…to the people”] may be traced directly to the First Commandment, for rulers and governments not bound by such constraints tend to claim divine rights over their subjects.
To see this on display, we need look no further than the idolatrous personality cult societies which elevate the Dear Leader to god-like status, in such beacons of hope and freedom as Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, Red China, Cuba, Cambodia, Vietnam, any of the “stans” throughout the Middle East, and so on throughout the past 100 years, ad nauseum.
The Fifth Commandment, positioned after the relationship with the Creator had been defined, and before the prohibitions of the Second Tablet, sets up nothing less than the prerequisites for the development of traditions. People wonder why respect for one’s parents would lead to a longer life on earth. Yet the message becomes clear if we substitute society for the individual. Only through respecting the people and events upon whose shoulders each generation stands can the longevity of a society be secured.
Now the very definition of family and marriage is up for grabs in the United States. And considering how little understanding of constitutional principles have been passed along over the past three generations, if what's left of the family is destroyed, then that will make the task of restoring freedom an impossibility.
And the beauty of it is you live in a country where you can still voice such an opinion, even though doing so elsewhere in the world leads to rather unpleasant consequences.

More about the book, America's Thirty Years War: Who is Winning?
Many Americans have turned their backs on the wonderful founding principles of this country because they are being constantly brain washed by the leftist media, thus becoming "useful fools", as described by Stalin. Unwittingly, they are helping to destroy all what have made this country the greatest. This book, if read without prejudice, could awaken them to the realization of how much we might loose in terms of individual rights and freedom if we don't go back to the founding principles and the Rule of Law.
Quotes from the book:
The frames of the Constitution understood the wisdom of making few laws. The fewer the laws, the broader the agreement.. The broader the agreement, the less need for enforcement. The less enforcement, the less friction between government and the governed. And the less friction, the less waste of time and energy. The time and energy thus freed vastly increase people's creative capacity. That, in a nutshell, is the success story of the United States of America. (49)
Under a variety of labels, the former (Franco-Germanic thought) is unconcerned with the human nature, and seeks only those outcomes it considers "desirable." The latter (Anglo-American thought) has always engaged in creating the circumstances that, based on human nature and empirical evidence, will offer the best chances for individual success. While the later holds that successful individuals will constitute a successful society, the former believes that a good theory will produce a "good" society - communism being the ultimate "good society." (67)
Once again, the more groups we have, the more "rights" we have. The more groups we have, the farther we drift from the rule of law. The more groups we have, the more restrictions we have on our true rights: Individual rights. Individual rights reflect our similarities; group rights emphasize our differences. Individual rights promote equality; group rights cultivate inequality. Individual rights permit every one of us to be special; group rights create stereotypes. Individual rights are unalienable, and are guaranteed by the Constitution; group rights are born at activist rallies, conferred by a party-political executive branch, and confirmed by a temporal judge. Group rights can be taken away be an even louder rally, a different regulator, a new judge.
Individual rights and group rights are mutually exclusive; we can not have it both ways. Individual rights provide a sense of security. The greater the sense of security, the more of people's creativity will be converted to productivity. The higher the productivity, the greater the sense of independence.
