Why are A LOT of them Supreme Court Justices? And even Neil Armstrong? I was pretty shocked at the list. I already knew the Constitution was created by FreeMasons as the Constitution is the replication of their beliefs. So I guess you could say all of the Constitution lovers are people who believe strongly in the beliefs of Free Masonry, that should slap a few people in the face.

Quite a few people belong to the Elks Lodge as well. Not sure I understand what you are getting at. The Masons are like any other civic organization. Shrouded in secrecy to get more members to join thus more dues get payed, thus more money in hands of higher ups. If the Constitution is what their beliefs are about, then I should probably join up.

Why don't you see if you can find information and links on some of the current politicians, local politicians, and Hollywood limelighters? Maybe see how far up on the ladder some of these gangsters are that are in our current event news? That would be more relevant right now.

If we could work toward exposing those who are active in current events and show how the organizations are working together to create chaos and disaster.

Check member logs of various Halls. Check bio's and affiliations to organizations.

I was going to make a list of famous Americans who are not Freemasons, but the list would be too long.

Somethings up.....

The dues at my lodge are $80 dollars a year.

So who exactly am I making rich with that?

With our 500 members that's only 40K a year, not much more than I make.

Vince McMahon is a Free Mason too.

For those that don't know he is the owner of the WWE.

It's an interesting list, but does it actually prove anything? If you take 1731 as the beginning of your data set (I picked that year simply because George Washington is on the 'Famous Masons' list, and that was the year in which he was born), and compile a list of "Famous People Who Are "X"", you'll have to work fairly hard *not* to get a long list of famous / interesting people, no matter what "X" is....Freemasons, Left Handed, Episcopalian, Bearded...heck, even "Famous People Who Are War Gamers" will get H. G. Wells on your list!

Lots of people who believe in the basic tenets of the Constitution are just plain people who enjoy having liberty and freedom from oppresion, but that doesn't necessarily make them masonic material. I personally know atheists who love the freedoms extolled in the Constitution but they could never be Masons because atheists can not become masons, neither can women for that matter, but they enjoy the same Constitutuonal freedoms the same as everyone else.

I think the argument could be made that the Biblical belief that we are souls created with freewill was the basis of the Constitutional framework. The whole idea of freewill in a divinely created being started the whole mess down a slippery slope. When people began to practice the exercise of free thought and expression it upset the proverbial apple cart and began the breakdown of many of the old feudal and church controlled systems used on the masses. That basic teaching which stemmed from Judeo/Christian teachings in the Bible was the cornerstone of the Enlightenment. Along with the printing press and the split in the Catholic church it began a volitile mix for the power brokers and the elite and they haven't been able to stop the tide, however hard they have tried.

My 2 cents.
