Classes on Constitution Springing Up Across Upcountry
Abuses of the Constitution of the United States by elected officials at all levels of government have fueled an explosion of interest by patriotic private citizens in studying the Constitution and its value to a free republic.
Harry Kibler and RINO Hunt started the first class in Greenville County two months ago. Kibler announced at his monthly meeting last Friday night that classes are being planned by groups of interested citizens in several counties in the Upcountry.
The Constitution Classes in Greenville County are conducted by Kibler and are held the first Saturday of each month at Choice Hills Baptist Church in northern Greenville County near Furman University. The first class lasted 2 hours, and due to the great interest and requests of people taking the class, it was extended to 4 hours for the classes to follow.
If you would like to join this class, call Harry Kibler at (864) 313-8615. Should you call, please be respectful of Harry’s time. He is very busy. He has a full-time job, a family and is doing this as a service to his fellow citizens in an effort to secure better government and preserve our freedom.
Classes are planned for Pickens, Anderson, Spartanburg, Union and other areas. The Times Examiner will provide specific locations, times and contact information as soon as it is available.
The textbook used in the class is called Principles of Freedom 101: The 5,000 Year Leap: A Miracle that Changed the World.
The book was published in 1981 by the National Center for Constitutional Studies.
It contains a chapter on each of the Founders Basic Principles: 28 great ideas that changed the world.
The first principle is:
The only reliable basis for sound government and just human relations is Natural Law.
A free people cannot survive under a Republican Constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong.
The most promising method of securing a virtuous and morally stable people is to elect virtuous leaders.
Without religion the government of a free people cannot be maintained.
All things were created by God, Therefore upon Him all mankind are equally dependent, and to Him they are equally responsible.
A majority of the people may alter or abolish a government, which has become tyrannical.
The United States of America shall be a Republic.
The Constitution should be structured to permanently protect the people from the human frailties of their rulers.
Life and Liberty are secure only so long as the right to property is secure.
Only limited and carefully defined powers should be delegated to government, all others being retained in the people.
Twenty Second Principle:
A free people should be governed by law and not by the whims of men.
Twenty Sixth Principle:
The core unit, which determines the strength of any society, is the family; therefore, the government should foster and protect its integrity.
The burden of debt is as destructive of freedom as subjugation by conquest.
The United States has a manifest destiny to be an example and a blessing to the entire human race.
From the examples of the 28 principles listed above, it is clear that the enemies of the Constitution of the United States of America, whether intentional or through ignorance, have systematically undermined these principles. Their uninhibited actions have placed the freedom of the current and future generations of Americans at risk.
The task ahead is to educate a generation of Americans that have been deprived of information essential to freedom by a seriously flawed, government controlled education system.
