    George Washington's 1789 Thanksgiving Proclaimation

    New York, 3 October 1789

    By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.

    Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor-- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

    GW_Thanksgiving_Proclaimation.jpgNow therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be-- That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks--for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation--for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war--for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed--for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted--for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

    And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions-- to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually--to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed--to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord--To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us--and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

    Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

    Happy Thanksgiving to God America, Here is Your History!

    Statistically speaking, American Millennials’ (ages 18-34) worst subject is history. Many know very little about our European ancestors, the Pilgrims, to whom the first Thanksgiving is attributed. These were the first Christian families to settle on the east coast of America. Contrary to modern-day teaching, the main purpose the Pilgrims came to America was NOT religious freedom. They had already gained religious freedom twelve years earlier, in 1608, when they fled England for Holland to escape the extreme persecution from a tyrannical King James I.

  • Over 4,000 Signatures Collected for Ballot Access

    ATLANTA, GA - 07/12/2016 (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) - The Constitution Party of Georgia (CPGA) collected 4,176 signatures in about eight weeks to have its candidates placed on the ballot for the Presidential election in November, but it may not be enough. Current Georgia law requires over 52,000 signatures and a recent federal ruling in a suit filed by the Green and Constitution parties reduced that to 7,500 over the standard six month petitioning period.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - June 16, 2016

    CP-GA Picks Castle, Dr. Paul Broun for Presidential Ticket

    ATLANTA, GA - The Constitution Party of Georgia (CP-GA) held its state convention on June 10th in McDonough. As expected, members selected Darrell Castle, the keynote speaker and Constitutional attorney from Tennessee, as its Presidential nominee.

    In a surprise move the members also unanimously nominated Dr. Paul Broun, a native son and former U.S. Congressman, for the Vice-President slot. CP-GA Chairman Ricardo Davis explained: “Dr. Broun has one of the most impressive conservative track records of any Congressman who has ever served in Washington. The CP-GA’s mission is to elect individuals like him in all facets of civil government.”

  • Paul Broun 2.0? Ex-lawmaker wins surprise VP nod from Georgia Constitution Party

    Is a political rebirth for former U.S. Rep. Paul Broun underway, this time as a third-party candidate? Maybe, from what we can tell.

    Weeks after his Republican primary loss in the Ninth Congressional District, the tea party darling has resurfaced, this time as the vice presidential nominee for the Constitution Party of Georgia.

    Word’s getting out now that the party made the surprise decision at its state convention in McDonough on June 10, choosing to dither from Utah university administrator Scott Bradley, who was selected as the VP pick at the national party’s convention in April.

    The group highlighted Broun’s Capitol Hill track record on taxes, the debt ceiling and abortion in its announcement.
