It is obvious that if we didn't have Freemason involvement in the formation of this country I doubt that this country would have been the same, with
the same Constitution.
Perhaps.. all the ideology comes straight from the Age of Enlightenment movement.. nothing was exclusively Masonic. Masonry perhaps formed at the
beginning of this age of thought.
Masonry's major role came about by using lodges as gathering places do to their natural secrecy. Freemasonry it's self never had a set-in-stone
political belief as far as loyalist/patriot.
I do understand that you guys have to constantly defend against the illogical, ignorant masses but why not promote such people as Ron Paul who are in
my opinion pure Constitutionalists?
It is against Masonic law to organize political movements from a lodge, or a Grand Lodge.
The Constitution is not a pure Masonic document, and is not officially endorsed by the world wide Masonic bodies as such.
Masonry houses men of numerous ideologies. I for one support Ron Paul, and other men like him. I vote Libertarian and am proud to do so. I don't
however know the political ideologies of my Lodge Brothers, never asked, don't really care. Back home I believe most where along the lines of
Republican, though I cannot be for certain.
I would bet that if all the Masons on ATS told you their beliefs you would see Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Communist, Socialist, Fascist,
Monarchist, Anarchist etc etc etc.
