"...people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil" - John 3:19 ....... A forum by, for and about Beaufort County, NC.---Speaking Truth To Power---We seek to be Right, not balanced--- "Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right...to knowledge, as their great Creator...has given them understandings, and a desire to know, but besides this, they have a right, an indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge; I mean, of the characters and conduct of their rulers"--John Adams, Dissertation on Canon and Fedual Law, 1765.Spacer

The Making of America
This section contains the previous Liberty Belle articles on The Making of America. They are based on the book by that name by Cleon Skousen which showed how and why America made more human progress in 200 years than had been made in the previous 5000 years of human existence. That is the Miracle of America. Dr. Skousen shows how this miracle can be lost if we fail to adhere to the 28 Principles of Freedom our Founding Fathers said must be understood and perpetuated by every generation that desires peace, prosperity, and freedom. Nancy Murdock (Liberty Belle) teaches a seminar on the book and you can take it by contacting her at: nancyccta@hotmail.com.
