Broadcast Episodes: Cincinnatus

The 22nd Amendment codified the two-term limits on Presidents. While the original Constitution put no limits on the number of terms any elected official could serve, the example set by George Washington of two elected terms was long considered the de facto rule for Presidents. If two terms were enough for him, who would dare think themselves above that?

Broadcast Episodes: The Reverend Duché

There are numerous heroes of the American Revolution who’s names are rarely mentioned and even more rarely recalled.

The First Prayer in Congress

But it was the Reverend’s prayer in September 1774 for which he is most recalled. Sam Adams, not a Anglican, was moved and John Adams recorded it a letter to his wife, saved forever for us today.

On the day that a Federal Judge ruled a Day of Prayer Unconstitutional, we recall the Reverend Duché and his mighty prayer on behalf of our new nation.

“O Lord our Heavenly Father, high and mighty King of kings, and Lord of lords, who dost from thy throne behold all the dwellers on earth and reignest with power supreme and uncontrolled over all the Kingdoms, Empires and Governments; look down in mercy, we beseech thee, on these our American States, who have fled to thee from the rod of the oppressor and thrown themselves on Thy gracious protection, desiring to be henceforth dependent only on Thee, to Thee have they appealed for the righteousness of their cause; to Thee do they now look up for that countenance and support, which Thou alone canst give…”
