Liberty will not return while we fight the details

I sent in a small note to the AFA today. I receive their action alerts and newsletter. They appear to be an organization that could help us restore Liberty, but my focus is on Liberty for all and doesn't embrace some of their views. We can not have freedom and ensure that everyone in the country obeys the laws of God. But, that's an entire other article that I will attempt to address one day.
This is a copy of the following message you sent to AFA Activism via faq

re: A call to action from former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and U.S. Senator Jim DeMint to stop ACLU supported bill
I appreciate the message of this action alert.  It is not correct for the federal government to try to determine what public buildings are used for religious functions or to curb spending on those structures via this wasteful bill.  What is missing entirely in the Action Alert is that it is not within the federal government's Constitutional powers to be spending our money for a stimulus at all.

U.S. Constitution Article 1, Section 8 defines what the US government has the power to do. Regulating commerce does not include stealing from our children and grandchildren to prolong a devastating depression.  It only means they can pass laws regarding commerce that crosses sovereign boundaries of the states and foreign nations.

Spending my money to further socialist, anti-Liberty, pro-authoritarian agendas is appalling to me.

It is time we stopped arguing the insignificant details of illegal legislation and started returning this country to where it should be: a beacon of Liberty to the world.  We can only do that by educating the truth about our nation's origins and dispelling the myth's and lies that are being taught in today's schools.
