Dr. Alan Keyes, Presidential candidate, Former US Ambassador to the UN
Alan Keyes has lived a life dedicated to defending, promoting, and fight for liberty. He holds a Ph.D. in government from Harvard and wrote his dissertation on constitutional theory. Keyes has run for elected office and has hosted very successful news shows. He is best known for thrusting the evil of abortion – which he considers our nation’s “greatest moral challenge” – into the national spotlight.
During the Reagan years, Keyes was the highest-ranking black appointee in the Reagan Administration, serving as Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations and as Ambassador to the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
His underlying philosophy can best be described as “Declarationism” – since he relies on the self-evident truths of the Declaration of Independence to define the premises on which our country was founded, and to which it must remain committed if it is to survive. To Dr. Keyes, the Constitution itself cannot be faithfully interpreted, understood, or applied apart from the divinely-premised principles of the Declaration.
