Happy Independence Day! Happy 4th of July!! It is on this day that we celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. The document that declared our independence from the tyranny of the British Government and gives us the idea that we should no longer have to live under any government that is destructive to the people of the United States of America. The Preamble of the Declaration of Independence also calls out what we are to do if the Government becomes destructive to the people of America.
Here is the Preamble in it’s entirety:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
Is it really self-evident, that all men, in the United States, are created equal? Have we been endowed by our God with unalienable rights? Do we have the right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness?
Some people would say that we are not created equal because Trump, Buffet and Gates have more money than most Americans. However I would argue that all men have an equal right to do with their lives what ever they wish. It’s been proven over and over again in America that a low life can come from the slums and work their way to the top of the American corporate ladder.
God has endowed us with unalienable rights. It says so in the Bible in Galatians 5:13, where it tells us: ‘You my brothers (and sisters) were called to be free, but do not use your freedom to do evil, rather server one another with love. (paraphrased)’ The King James version uses the word ‘liberty’ instead of freedom. Liberty ‘suggests that people should, must, and ought to behave according to their own free will, and take responsibility for their actions.’ It leaves the choice up to the individual.
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, lots of problems here. Our Government with their universal health care will take away life from us. Most people in this country do not know what socialized medicine does to the health care in the country. The quality of health care goes down. You may not be able to go to the doctor you have gone to in the past and you may have to wait for months to receive treatment. Don’t ask about choice, as you will be told who you can see and you will be told you have to carry insurance. The choice is gone. So much for Life, Liberty and Happiness.
The preamble then states that ‘to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,’ So how many times have you been asked by our Government what you want? Did anyone call and ask you if you wanted universal health care? Has anyone asked you about sending our young men and women off to war? Has anyone asked you about drilling for oil in our own country? I doubt it.
So, what can we do about it? The next part of the preamble gives us the answer: ‘That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.’ That’s right, it is our right as American citizens to alter or abolish and institute a new Government.
The preamble goes on to say that mankind will suffer under a long established Government rather than abolish that which we have become accustomed too. Have we become complacent America? Are we so accustomed to being suppressed by Government that we are afraid to change it? It’s time my fellow Americans that we take a stand against the Government that has suppressed our Life, Liberty and Happiness.
It concludes by saying that when a long period of abuses and usurpations, creating a design to reduce us to absolute Despotism, or tyranny, it is our right, our duty to throw off the old Government and install a new guard.
In common usage, the word “tyrant” carries connotations of a harsh and cruel ruler who places his or her own interests or the interests of a privileged group over the best interests of the general population, which the tyrant governs or controls. Sounds like the entire Government we have in control right now. The president and V.P., Congress and Senate and even the Supreme Court, and any other elected official that is in control the people and they are only looking out for their interests.
The time has come for us to take America back! It is time for us as citizens of the United States to install a new government. If we don’t we are going to become a very suppressed people. There is very hard times ahead. If you think things are bad now just wait and see what happens next. Unemployment in the double digits again, more home foreclosures, banks defaulting. We’re not talking recession but another Great Depression, of the likes no one has ever seen.
We have our chance to change America now, in 2012. This November, when we go to the polls, forget your party affiliation and become an independent. Then vote for every new person on the ballot. Vote every single politician out that has had a term in office. The current lot that is running, or should I say ruining America, will not put term limits in place so we the people will have to place our rule of term limits on them ourselves.
Imagine what kind of an impact it would make on the White House, Congress and the Senate if they ALL wound up unemployed. It would send a message that we are tired of the partisan politics, the uncontrolled spending, the special interests that they serve and that WE are not going to stand for it any longer.
This 4th of July I ask that you all consider this. If a majority of Americans will join in arms and vote this way and we can take America back. It will send a message to the Politicians that we are tired of them and that we are serious about how they manage our countries affairs.
Happy 4th of July America!!! Today as we celebrate our freedom. please take a moment to pray for our men and women in harms way, protecting what freedoms we have left. Pray for our country and all it means to us and pray that the elections in November make an impact America. Enjoy your family picnics and light off a few fireworks, that is, if that freedom has not been taken away from you yet.
I also ask that you share this with everyone you know. Get the word out and let’s make America the land of the free and the home of the brave once again.
