"The fundamental basis of this Nation's law was given to Moses on the Mount." ~ President Harry S Truman

Harry Truman's Most Important should have been your Doctrine Harry!
By Norman E. Hooben - June 30, 2010

Harry Truman may have been the last honest president the United States has had...and maybe the first one to come along since Honest Abe but that's another story.  Honesty is one thing but foresight is another and Harry had little of the latter.  His views on the United Nations, China, and an international monetary unit of exchange really stunk and again, that's another story.  But one thing for sure that Harry brought with him to the presidency was his conviction  of whence we came...and no president has ever expressed it any better than this:
"The most important business in this Nation–or any other nation, for that matter-is raising and training children. If those children have the proper environment at home, and educationally, very, very few of them ever turn out wrong. I don't think we put enough stress on the necessity of implanting in the child's mind the moral code under which we live.
The fundamental basis of this Nation's law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don't think we emphasize that enough these days.
If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state."  ~ Harry S Truman

Trivia note: There is no period after the S in Harry S Truman

I posted the following earlier but I thought I would post it again because a "fundamental moral background" and a "sacred bond of union" are the links between our past and our future and let no Obama put asunder!

Religion as a Bond of Union
“The people of the city were not only united about a common citadel; they were also bound together by a common religion.  Each smaller group – like the family, the gens, etc. – retained its own particular worship; but to be part of the city it must also recognize the common deity under  whose protection the city was founded, and whose continual worship the city life was maintained.  Religion was thus the sacred bond of union which held together the various parts of the community.”  ~ From Outlines of Greek History by William C. Morey, Ph.D., D.C.L.  copyright 1903
One could make the claim that the above quote is the greatest un-learned history lesson of all time.  I don’t know how many times nor how many history books that  I ran across similar statements about the cohesion of the early city states.  The use of Dr. Morey’s quote here was simply because it predates me…but also that I have the book in my possession.
It should be noted that the sacred bond of union was one of mutually shared assimilation and not a dictate by the government for as soon as such authoritative force came upon the population then the decline of the city state soon followed; especially when that force was dominated by outside religious beliefs or no religion at all.  Most indigenous peoples have a religion that guides there every day moral compass; those that do not generally have no morals and a particular observation is that lying comes easy for there is no law written in stone to guide them…they have no conscience that disturbs the alarms that should ring when wrong dominates right.   Such secular people usually have little in common with those of established faiths…though there is some toleration but usually for political trickery intents.
So what is happening now in the once very cohesive United States?  We have the influence of an unconscionable, authoritative leader that dictates policy influenced by non Judeo-Christian beliefs (mostly Islam and Marxism) backed by gangs schooled in the art of Saul Alinsky and deceit (is that a double negative? Alinsky and deceit).  Remember, it was Judeo-Christian beliefs that were our common bond.  Let’s not forget it.  This moment in time is your part in history for another generation to learn about so let’s prolong our bond before the United States of America becomes history. ~  Norman E. Hooben  
Ps: The New World Order crowd (Carter, Clinton [x2], Bush[x 2], Pelosi, Reid, Obama) never learned the above history lesson.
