The Pre-1945 Generation
”We are survivers!”
“We hold these truths to be self evident”


“Our government is an agency of delegated and strictly limited powers. Its founders did not look to its preservation by force; but the chain they wove to bind these States together was one of love and mutual good offices.” -- JEFFERSON DAVIS

.The following article is my testimony, some will agree,
others disagree, but the testimony remains, and it is my own!


Those among our numbers who were born during or before the Second World War have a special heritage! Our early years were at a time when the entire world was at war! It was a time when our present day blasphemers of the Christian Faith, would have thought otherwise back then. Particularly while facing off with Nazi or Imperial Japanese forces, bent on their total inhalation, and knowing they vary well could meet their maker at any time. The enemy army coming closer and closer from across the battlefield, would cause even today’s hardened atheist, to call upon the Almighty God for deliverance.

Liberal and socialist federal judges, politicians and bureaucrats of recent years, who cry Separation of Church and State, as well as the ‘Freedom from Religion’ would have haply joined in Bible Reading, Prayer and Praise before the God. No doubt out of fear, their hides might be blow off, and by an enemy who could car less about their God hating rhetoric. Yes indeed, those of our generation learned the hard lessons of life! And we learned from those who suffered thru the depression, the war, then gave their last full measure of devotion, so that those back home might remain free. Remain free to oppose and deny the vary God that, by his grace granted the victory!

Men and women who survived the Second World War and its many battlefields, taught us to have faith in the Almighty God, the Holy Scripture and Prayer. Faith sufficient to make the ‘Faith of our Fathers’ the foundation of our life, and guide for our every activity! Can anyone today actually believe, all those people known as we the people, would have gained the fortitude, staying power and the inspiration, to endue the unendurable, without such faith? Back then, Christianity and Judaism was honored, at least on this side of the two oceans, and this was reflected throughout the Armed Forces.

Our generation grew up before television, rock and roll, rap, I-phone, instant messaging and road rage! When classrooms across the nation, all contained two vary special books, usually found on the teacher’s desk, an English Dictionary and a Holy Bible. We were raised to believe it was our duty to strive always, to exemplify our faith in the Almighty God, as well as to contribute to society in a constructive and positive manner. We were taught to earn those needful things of life, that we were owed nothing that wasn’t gained by our own labor, and that Marriage was between a man and women, for life.

We grew up at a time when the biggest crime committed on School Grounds, was chewing bubble gum in class, when marijuana, heroine and other forms of dope and dope addiction, were all but unknown in society. After the war, there was little fear of a carjacking, drive by shootings, kidnapping, rape and murder, all of which was for the most part, a rare occurrence. Us kids would walk two miles to see a movie at the theater on a Saturday, and do so in complete safety. Was society different? You better bet your I-pad it was, and by today standards, it was nearly a paradise!

What happened that changed society so much? We can begin with a general sense of lawlessness, the biggest culprit being the 44th President himself. A man who exercises political power, far beyond that which he has been granted! He ignores the constitution, as well as the unalienable rights granted us by Almighty God in creation, some of which are enumerated in the Constitution. While the Senate Leadership stands by in blissful, howbeit willful ignorance, thereby allowing this man to make, alter or ignore laws as well as the Constitution, without any fear of a well earned impeachment.

The change in society began when we the people come to believe government owed us, even at the cost of other taxpayers, and a likely national bankruptcy at some not to distant time. The change occurred when adherence to morals, began to be looked upon as bigotry! Yet those of us, who were born of the Second World War generation and before, have always been keenly aware, judgment will come, all in due course. For “In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed...No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.” ... Noah Webster.

The great masses of the people have come to believe in a philosophy defined by the phrase ‘so what’ and this without thought that, “God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire cannot rise without His aid? We have been assured in the Sacred Writings that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. I firmly believe this. I also believe that, without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building, no better than the builders of Babel” - Constitutional Convention of 1787.

The words of Benjamin Franklin and others of our founding fathers, serve as a warning for out time! Those of us born during or before the Second World War learned the lessons of history, for we were taught in our schools, the Christian Foundation of the nation. We are survivors, not because we are special, but because we learned that without the Almighty God, in Christ Jesus, the Holy Scripture and Prayer, the nation is setting the stage for its own demise. We have today a generation, which parties its way through High School and College, and have not learned the lessons of history, because they were not taught.

But what you might ask, were they taught? The scholarly Dr. Grady McWhiney said it best, when he stated, "What passes as standard American history is really Yankee history written by New Englanders or their puppets to glorify Yankee heroes and ideals." Somehow by God’s own grace, a portion of those born before or during the Second World War, also learned in part of the lessons taught to us by Confederate General Patrick Cleburne, after the Confederacy had lost the war. Lessons we today should consider before we heap praises upon President Abraham Lincoln.
General Cleburne stated, "Surrender means that the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern school teachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the War; will be impressed by all the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit subjects for derision.” Today’s generation, in their ignorance, believes that because the Confederate Armies surrendered, this means the Confederate States of America is forever dissolved, and left to a bygone age.

While it is true that not all of our generation has survived, some having long ago succumbed to what has become a pagan, and even in many respects an anti-God society. Sufficient numbers of us remain, because, as this testimony began, “We are survivors” and we will be there when this society collapses, having set its own destructive course, as far back as Abraham Lincoln. While they may praise President Lincoln, setting him upon a throne, as if he were a god, they cannot avoid what is to come. Having convinced them-selves Lincoln’s war has been won, and the Confederacy ended forever, their eyes are blinded.
There remains yet another voice that once told an historic truth, where it has been stated, ''The contest is not over, the strife is not ended. It has only entered upon a new and enlarged arena.'' --- President Jefferson Davis, in his address to the Mississippi Legislature in 1881. It has also been stated by this same honorable man, "The principle for which we contend is bound to reassert it's self, though it may be at another time and in another form." Those who have not read the Proclamation of Independence should do so, this document states in proper historic and legal language, according to our unalienable rights, that it ‘ain’t’ over yet.
My voice is just one among many, a man who has regretfully foreseen the disaster that waits just down the road, as well as the conclusion to their war of aggression. Have they won? Some say yes most certainly it is over, why not just let it go? And to that I say, would you have me ignore those coming events, and the glorious resurrection of the Confederate States of America, a nation Abraham Lincoln hated, as he stated, that "In saving the Union, I have destroyed the Republic. Before me I have the Confederacy, which I loathe. But behind me I have the bankers, which I fear." --- Abraham Lincoln. So don’t be so quick to say, its over!

How long will ‘we the people’ hesitate and fail to stand up for their rights? How long will the once sovereign States tolerate the abuse of power, brought on by an out of control federal bureaucracy. The States of the Confederacy are lambasted, because they owed slaves, yet the States the Union, which waged an aggressive war against them, are praised, while they themselves sold the Black man into slavery. It is true, 13 States cannot stand against a government that exercises such powers, powers far above and beyond those granted, still, 38 States can and should, for there combined numbers would form a constitutional majority.

“Will we the people, as well as the States themselves stand up now, when positive results
can be achieve by peaceful means, or will they wait until it must be done by force?”

God save the Confederacy



The last bulwark of State sovereignty and Constitutional rights in North America, the Confederate States, ceased to exist when Lee surrendered at Appomattox. From that day forward, the Republic of Jefferson, Madison, Mason and Franklin was to be no more. Henceforth, the federal government that was created by sovereign States to be their agent would become their master.  All that remained was for the new order of government to dismantle the Republics remnants. --- Jefferson Davis
