Liberty's Kids: We The People

As I was flipping through the channels on the television one day I noticed an interesting cartoon being shown on one channel which teaches about our nation's founding.  Since I hadn't seen a full episode I decided to search the internet to see whether I could find any of the episodes on YouTube and did. Cool. This cartoon looks to be a good way for kids to learn about our nation's founding and the issues that were involved during the first beginnings of the United States of America. It is even possible that some adults who are uneducated in the history of our nation's founding would learn a thing or two about our history from this cartoon. What do you think of the cartoon?

The cartoons are well done, but I have to take issue with some of their message, particularly when they speak of a "strong central government". The founders never intended all of the power to be concentrated in the hands of the Government, it was to reside in We the People. Plus, the founders NEVER intended the United States to be a Democracy. As a matter of fact, they even warned against allowing it to happen.

Unfortunately, today we have reverted back to an all powerful central government and our Rights and individual freedoms are rapidly being eroded right out of existence.

In Response to Rev. Gregori, I think the phrase "strong central government," in context, means something stronger than then government under the Articles of Confederation, which was impotent, at best.

Agreed on Democracy, that is a recipe for disaster. We were given a Republic, if we can keep it.
