Renewing the American Spirit

Patriot Week begins on 9/11 and ends on 9/17 (the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution (Constitution Day)) and renews America’s spirit by celebrating the First Principles, Founding Fathers and other Patriots, vital documents and speeches, and flags that make America the greatest nation in world history. Many of current holidays have become overly commercialized or have lost their deeper meaning. We need to invigorate our appreciation and understanding of America’s spirit. This blog is dedicated to keeping the spirit of Patriot Week - and America - alive all year long.....

A government of laws, not men

As John Adams wrote in the Massachusetts Constitution (1780), in America, the government is to "be a government of laws and not of men.”  In other words, the law - and not the personal desires of the rulers - should govern.  No man, even the President, or Congress, is above the law. 

For more about the rule of law, check out Patriot Week and Americas Survival Guide.
