Introduction

Just as the Founding Fathers acknowledged and appealed to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of their intentions and placed a firm reliance on the protection of pine Providence in the Declaration of Independence, so too do members of the Constitution Party acknowledge the living God and appeal to Him for mercy, aid, comfort, guidance and protection in our efforts to restore and preserve the blessings of liberty that they secured. This sentiment seems foreign to many as our citizenry progressively embraces a secular worldview and becomes further and further separated from an understanding of our nation’s history and heritage of liberty.  However, we need look no further than the Declaration of Independence to discover that acknowledgement of our Creator is central to American liberty and not a violation of, but rather the foundation of the Constitution’s First Amendment.
