If Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Patrick Henry, or any other "Founding Father" of America could travel through time and spend a few weeks in your home watching TV, visiting your local public school, and learning about the federal government in 2013, what would he think? I believe he would be horrified at what America has become. He would be shocked that you are not shocked.
America's Founders risked their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to resist a government that they called a "tyranny," but the reign of George III was a kindergarten class compared to the vile, murderous, atheistic, imperialist, planet-suffocating tentacles of the regime we call "Washington D.C."
Samuel Adams would tell you, in words he learned from your TV,
You SUCK at Being An AMERICAN
Happily, there's GREAT NEWS on this website. You can be transformed into
• An Extraordinary American,
These were the three goals of Samuel Adams, Ring-leader of the "Boston Tea Party" (1773), and Signer of the Declaration of Independence (1776), who laid out a program of personal and national transformation in his first letter to America's Town Halls through a network of communication called "The Committees of Correspondence." His letters ignited the American Revolution, and they can ignite a revolution in your life. As a result of this timeless program, Samuel Adams became known as "The Father of the American Revolution."
Tragically, you probably cannot understand what Adams is saying in this letter. Most Americans can't. And you won't be motivated to take the medicine unless you're convinced you're sick. So continue to exercise your imagination:
America's Founders would be horrified, then outraged, at what has happened to the government they created. They would ask why YOU are not carrying out the duty you have (according to the Declaration of Independence) to abolish any government as tyrannical as ours.
After seeing what is taught -- and what is not taught -- in government-approved schools, Samuel Adams would say,
You are a victim of educational malpractice.
He would prescribe a curriculum of five of the most important works in the history of Western Civilization, to be read over the next 365 days, while asking three life-changing questions.
We're calling this program,
The Samuel Adams Coaching Program
Start by enrolling in an "Orientation Program." You can view the contents here. It may be helpful, however, to get more fully motivated to enroll in the Samuel Adams Coaching Program by contemplating these depressing facts:
Our government taxes us 10 or 20 times more than Britain did, and spends our money destroying the family by promoting sexual immorality, and propping up anti-Christian dictators around the world: things Parliament would never have imagined doing with colonial tax revenue in 1776.
If you're inclined to drown out my criticisms of the United States by shouting "U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!," over and over and over, then I'm sorry I bothered you. Go ahead and leave this website. As Sam Adams put it, "May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!"
|America was once the most prosperous and admired nation in history.
Today America is bankrupt and despised even by former friends.
What happened? What caused America to go from prosperity to bankruptcy? Why doesn't the rest of the world admire America any more?
I think the answer is fairly obvious.
We are all victims of educational malpractice.
The fact that perhaps a majority of Americans under the age of 25 are functionally illiterate in terms of "the 3 R's" is just a start. A far greater percentage of Americans are morally illiterate, in terms of "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God," and politically ignorant of the Constitution and the rest of America's "Organic Law."
No wonder: The federal government says public school teachers cannot teach students that the Declaration of Independence is really true. Students can only be taught that a bunch of dead white males used to *believe* it was true. (Or that maybe even *they* didn't really believe what they wrote.)
But more important than the Constitution or Declaration of Independence, is the fact that the Bible has been banned from public schools.
Public schools were originally created to teach everyone the Bible. This Bible-based education created what Charles Murray has called "The Founding Virtues" of industriousness, honesty, marriage, and religiosity. Banning the Bible banned these virtues, and America's global lead in virtue and productivity has collapsed.
Do you have a better explanation for America's decline?
It may seem corny to blame vast, complex economic and political problems -- about which credentialed professors and educated pundits offer sophisticated, footnoted disagreements -- on the banning of the Bible, but if you'll give me a chance to sell you on the proposition, I think I can.
What was it that made "common law" nations better than the conquering, bloody, enslaving, perverted Roman Empire? Answer: the Bible. The first Christian kings (Justinian, Alfred, Ethelbert, etc.) Christianized their law codes according to the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount.
When the U.S. Supreme Court in the early 1960's banned voluntary prayer and voluntary Bible reading from public schools, at least one of the Justices was honest enough to admit that the primary purpose of public schools was to teach "religion and morality," according to those who framed the Constitution.
But nobody cares what the Constitution says anymore.
Frankly, I don't either. We're never going to "get back to the Constitution," as some political fundraisers chant, and if we did get back to 1776, what would prevent us from eventually landing right back where we are today?
In fact, we need to realize that the Revolutionary period in American history saw three huge mistakes made by America's Founding Fathers. Overcoming these three huge mistakes will require us to embrace the three most politically incorrect ideas in the Mainstream Media today. This is, to be frank, a huge undertaking. It will require cult deprogramming.
If Samuel Adams were here today, I'm confident he would see the mistakes he made, because they have been amplified in a way that would floor Adams. We are blind to the fact that these three mistakes are sinking America, and destroying the lives of millions of people around the world.
We need to go back to the one-room school house and learn "religion and morality" for the first time. Then we'll be able to see both the problem and the solution more clearly. I've developed a program I'm calling the *Samuel Adams Coaching Program*. I'd like to stand in for Samuel Adams and be your personal "coach" and transform you into
• An Extraordinary American,
I'd like you to cut out the "mainstream media" for one hour a day, and substitute the wisdom and virtue that America's Founding Fathers learned in their one-room school house.
If you believe the Bible is the Word of God, you cannot escape the example of Godly men and women: you and I should read the Bible every day. It should be at the forefront of our thinking.
Sadly, you may never be able to compensate for the loss of a Biblical education as a child. Sure, the words spoken during actual classroom time to a child while he was 6 years old could be learned in a few days by an adult. You can take in the words learned by colonial American children, but you miss the benefits of allowing those words to percolate in your heart day and night and impress themselves in your mind by their application in real-life daily experiences over the years.
But God still requires you to be a student of His Word. There's no reason why you shouldn't begin right now to un-do what the federal government has done to you. Samuel Adams wrote to his cousin John:
This is exactly what Samuel Adams Coaching will do for you. You can partially compensate for what the federal government denied you as a little boy or girl by enrolling in the year-long Samuel Adams Coaching program.
On May 12, 1779, in a speech to the Delaware Indian Chiefs, Washington coached them:
The "religion of Jesus Christ" was taught to colonial American children in the Westminster "Smaller Catechism," found in probably every single classroom and virtually every home in America in 1776.
But "the religion of Jesus Christ" spoken of by "the Father of his Country" has been BANNED by the atheistic regime in Washington D.C., so you are as mis-educated as an unenlightened superstitious Delaware Indian -- before he took George Washington's advice.
Of course, as an intelligent adult, you can read the catechism in an afternoon. But the Samuel Adams Coaching Program spreads the reading out over 365 days to maximize percolation in your heart and application in your life.
