Lady Liberty's Constitution Clearing House has an educational
resource page that offers valuable information for kids, parents,
teachers and more. Here's the link:
Some of the topics/links that may be of special interest to you are:
Cases and Materials on American Federalism
Historical Documents: The Constitution of the U.S.
Ideas, People, & Events in the History of Liberty
The U.S. Constitution and Fascinating Facts About It
The U.S. Constitution Online (this link even features information
developed for a specific age range - Constitution for Kids:
Kindergarten through 3rd Grade and The Constitution for Kids: 8th
through 12th Grade)
Hope this helps Jenn,
"The fight for freedom needs every warm and motivated body it can
get. Most importantly, it needs no additional 'enemies,' and ensuring
kids have a legitimate and comprehensive civics and history education
is crucial to both aspects." ~ Lady Liberty

- Hey Folks,
I was thinking alot this week about getting the
libertarian message out to other moms. I believe that
if mothers did a "What can Libertarianism do for MOM's
" style OPH booths. If they contained vocal women that
could explain just how for the Mother, Libertarianism
really can be. Pro mother items are school choice,gun
rights,self preserving retirements,and yes
When I was pregnant with my second son, Liam, I had
a dilemma concerning the pending birth. I wanted a
VBAC(vaginal birth after c section) birth for my
second child. I had to go to 10 different doctors to
find one that would just allow me to merely plan on
having a semi natural birth. I was treated like I was
crazy for not wanting another C-section. I could just
imagine how many women have been bullied into having a
c-section when they were not necessary.
I did extensive research on my options for my second
birth. I had facts that the cost of hospitalization is
less from vaginal births. 9 doctors told me I was
crazy for wasting their time because I was in essence
putting these doctors through a job interview. Imagine
what it would be like if we had socialized medicine?
No at home births, massive c-sections, non opt out
for invasive procedures (amnio testing). We need to
reduce taxes to afford our own healthcare.
The last hospital I found was 1.5 hours away and in
the mtns of Jasper Ga. We were so grateful for the
experience that we named our newborn son Liam Jasper
after the town.
Have an awesome weekend

I saw "Iron Jawed Angels" on HBO and it left me thinking about those
amazing women for days. In case others haven't seen the movie, here's
a portion of HBO's description. "IRON JAWED ANGELS recounts for a
contemporary audience a key chapter in U.S. history: in this case,
the struggle of suffragists who fought for the passage of the 19th
Amendment (giving women the right to vote). Focusing on the two
defiant women, Alice Paul (Hilary Swank) and Lucy Burns (Frances
O'Connor), the film shows how these activists broke from the
mainstream women's-rights movement and created a more radical wing,
daring to push the boundaries of political protest to secure women's
voting rights in 1920. Breathing life into the relationships between
Paul, Burns and others, the movie makes the women feel like complete
characters instead of one-dimensional figures from a distant past."
What a wonderful legacy those women left us. I would consider them
Patriots in the cause of Liberty and I think mothers would especially
want their daughters to watch the movie and understand such an
important part of our nation's history.
Note: I think this movie would be an excellent teaching tool for
homeschoolers (of an older certain age - it does have some scenes
that might be too intense for younger children)
P.S. Also liked your idea of a Mother's version of the OPH
(Operation Politically Homeless) booth!

Great... glad you had a chance to check it out. Here's another site
I thought you and the other Mothers for Liberty might also find
interesting - "BuildFreedom.com" at www.buildfreedom.com
The site features a "Freedom Portal" (described as the gateway to
thousands of freedom-oriented websites and the best place to start
your freedom search!), "Libertools", Networking Opportunities, Daily
Quotes and more.
There's certainly a lot to take in and I've just begun to scratch the
surface. Hope you'll all find some pertinent information here.
