The Anatomy of Sovereignty

Introduction

"To be informed is to be vigilant!"  So says the sloganeer.  Vigilance is also Mr. Limbaughís forte.  To hear Rush one is easily swayed to accept his claim that some 40 million people listen to him, almost all, presumably, because they agree with his views.  Yet that majority has not translated into constitutional victory.  In spite of all that vigilance, our nationís ramparts are breached and our sentinelsí trenches are choked with debris and refuse.

Everywhere the fires of discontent are ashing the fabric of our national identity.   Moral and institutional decay are rampant, depravity is become a standard of accomplishment, and arrogance, the face of ignorance, is become the center display on our nationís escutcheon.  Our Constitution, except for the Scriptures, is the only document assailed by men; especially by those who registered in Heaven a solemn oath to preserve, protect, and defend it.  All this, because God, Whom the Founding Fathers called "Author of Liberty," is spurned, rejected, and vilified.  We have now lost our greatness and our graciousness, lost them, because we have lost, or at least are losing, our freedom, the underpinning of graciousness.  We now are at the brink of oblivion and it seems that only a slight nudge could sweep us into extinction as a free people.
