Our mission is to learn, teach, and apply these “self-evident” truths which guided America since 1776: We are all created equal. We are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. Among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. To secure these rights, governments are instituted, exercising their just powers from the consent of the governed...

The  song in the background is “Battle Cry of Freedom”.   

 It was written during the darkest days of our Civil War.  Many battles had been lost.  More than a hundred thousand young men had been killed, wounded or captured.   

Many called for peace talks to quickly end the war— knowing this would allow slavery to continue in the  South.

 But then American composer George Frederick Root wrote this song "Battle Cry of Freedom".  It changed everything. These words set to music inspired and transformed America. 

Yes, we'll rally round the flag, boys,
We'll rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of Freedom,
We will rally from the hillside,
We'll gather from the plain,
Shouting the battle cry of Freedom.

CHORUS:
The Union forever,
Hurrah! boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitors,
Up with the stars;
While we rally round the flag, boys,
Rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of Freedom.

We are springing to the call
Of our brothers gone before,
Shouting the battle cry of Freedom;
And we'll fill our vacant ranks with
A million free men more,
Shouting the battle cry of Freedom.

CHORUS

We will welcome to our numbers
The loyal, true and brave,
Shouting the battle cry of Freedom;
And although they may be poor,
Not a man shall be a slave,
Shouting the battle cry of Freedom.

CHORUS

So we're springing to the call
From the East and from the West,
Shouting the battle cry of Freedom;
And we'll hurl the rebel crew
From the land that we love best,
Shouting the battle cry of Freedom.

CHORUS

 These words made the great majority of Americans realize what President Abraham Lincoln had said in almost every major speech he made from the Lincoln-Douglas Debates of 1858 until his Second Inaugural Address of March, 1865.  Allowing slavery to continue in America as long as it did was a horrible sin, and a betrayal of the "sentiments" of our Declaration of Independence that created our nation on July 4, 1776.  Americans had to accept the death and destruction of the Civil War as God's just punishment for that sin, and make whatever sacrifice was needed to bring that sin to an end.

This song and its story are an important part of our history and culture.  However, it is no longer taught or sung in America today.  It's story is no longer allowed to be told.  Why?

Let's talk more about this at our weekly breakfast discussions any Saturday morning in Somers Point, New Jersey.  Learn more at LibertyAndProsperity.com  Thanks.

For 200 years, Americans had more wealth, freedom, opportunity, and justice than any other people in the world. Yet during the last 50 years, roughly half of Americans believe the lies of our enemies and are working day and night to tear our country apart. What happened? Yuri Bezmenov explains in this 8 minute segment of an interview he gave in 1985. We know that everything he said is true because dozens of other high officials who escaped from Communist regimes told the same story–and because everything he predicted 34 years ago happened just as he predicted.
