From the John Birch Society:
Celebrate Bill of Rights Day!
December is a month focused on many holiday traditions, gifts, events, and parties everywhere you turn. But missing from the holiday hustle and bustle is a presidential proclamation that Franklin D. Roosevelt made, recognizing the Bill of Rights. That’s right, on December 15, 1941, Roosevelt designated the day (December 15) as Bill of Rights Day.
But who cares? We have enough to worry about in December already! Well… it actually is quite important that you take time to care. Can you imagine our country without the Bill of Rights?
Jumping back in time to September 25, 1789, Congress just passed the Bill of Rights: the rules that limit governmental power. Yes, you heard that right, limits government power. The Founders recognized that we have certain unalienable rights, not granted by the government, so the government can’t take them away. These rights include the right to free speech, the right to religious freedom, the right to own property, the right to bear arms, and more.
Without us knowing the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence, the government ceases to be limited. And we’ve seen this; America has gradually become ignorant of its history, while government officials take full advantage of the people’s aloofness. The result? The Bill of Rights continues to be violated. The only way to get back on track is through education! What are you willing to do, to secure your God-given rights?
Join us! Take Action:
As long as our country remembers what the Declaration of Independence states, “…that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights…,” then we have a shot at preserving what our Founders started. If you’re ready to take part in the safeguarding of our freedoms, The John Birch Society is exactly the organization that you want to be a part of!
Together we can preserve the Bill of Rights, eliminate government overreach, and protect our rights endowed by our Creator! Join us to bring about less government, more responsibility, — and with God’s help – a better world!
