The Enemy Within

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the
gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within
the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the
traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their
arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works
secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no
longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

“It is my firm belief that most of our social,
economic and political problems stem from our
departure from the principles on which this nation
was founded.  Unless we return to those principles
future generations are destined to live under the
yoke of tyranny and deprivation. During my
lifetime I have watched the steady progress of
socialism as it crowds out liberty and freedom.  I
fear that unless this course is reversed, and soon,
America is destined to follow in the footsteps of
other illustrious nations whose former greatness is
little more than a faded memory today.”

Jerry McDaniel is a former Pastor, entrepreneur, business
owner, and corporate trainer.  Educated in Theology and
Business Management,  for most of his career he was
engaged in a variety of professional training positions as an
independent consultant, minister and corporate trainer.
Politically, he is a Constitution fundamentalist.

With special training in hermeneutics, the science and
methodology of  interpreting texts, his approach to our
founding documents is somewhat different than the majority of
writers and bloggers.  The common practice in studying the
Constitution is to approach it from a legalistic point of view,
taking into account  changes imposed by court cases and
Supreme Court decisions.

His approach is to apply textual criticism to the founding
documents in an effort to determine the intent of the Framers.  
His goal is to let them speak for themselves without twisting
their meaning to fit his personal social or political preferences.
 He often reviews court cases and judicial opinions, however,
his guiding principle is Article Six of the U.S. Constitution
which declares the Constitution itself to be the Supreme Law
of the Land trumping actions of the Judicial, Legislative and
Executive Branches of government.
