    Psalm 33:12
    Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

    We have much for which we should be thankful.
    We have our problems here, but I would still rather live here than anyplace else.

    God Bless America.

  4. When it comes to the Founders and the Constitution, David Barton knows orders of magnitude more than Jon Stewart.

    Jon Stewart threw every straw man (that his staff gave him on note cards) that he could at David Barton, and Barton knocked every single one of those straw men down. Barton has spent decades studying thousands of primary source documents. Stewart has spent minutes, possibly hours, studying the note cards his staff gave him. It was no contest. Every time Stewart threw a false accusation at Barton, Barton countered with the truth. And every time, Stewart would interrupt Barton’s answer. Stewart could only crack a joke or change the subject; he couldn’t have a straight-up discussion of the truth.

    I would love to see a similar discussion between David Barton and “Constitutional Law” lecturer Barack Obama.
