We hold these truths to be self-evident… Familiar words from our nation's Declaration. Dr. Paul Seaton (stmarys.edu), Professor of Philosophy at St. Mary's Seminary and University, joins us today to compare the 'we' from the Declaration's time to today's 'we.' There used to be a shared belief in the foundational principles of this country, even if you ideologically disagreed on other issues. No such commonality exists today. But the progressive's long march through the institutions has sped up recently and people are beginning to wake up and fight back. One way they're fighting back is with new institutions that uphold our foundations and teach the truth.
Happy Independence Day everyone! Those on the Left constantly berate our Founding Fathers for being slave owners and that fact alone negates any and all good that they accomplished. Joining us for this Independence Day podcast is Bill Federer (americanminute.com), President of AmeriSearch, Inc. He gives the history of slavery in the world and specifically in North America. He cites examples of who were the slaveholders and what they ultimately thought of the practice, and who were the ones who started the anti-slavery movement. He also explains the reason for omitting slavery from the Declaration and how the two political parties have felt about slavery and the black population over the years. Slavery was horrible, but we got rid of it! An entertaining history lesson on today's podcast!
