"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"
Governments, our government, is instituted to preserve these rights. That is a foundation of the frame of our government. It seems so simple, and almost impossible to screw up. I look at the apathy of the people of our country, so willing to sell our freedom for a false security, and I mourn. I look at the current course our leaders are leading us down and I am angered. Slowly but surely anger is winning out over the mourning process. How long, O America, can we continue to betray the blood of our forefathers and the wisdom of ages?
How hard is it, truly, to stand by this principle and see that this single precept ought to bind the consciences of our elected and appointed officials? How foolish can we be to follow so blindly someone because they sound good or tell us they will give us what we want.
Let us want Freedom!
Let us want Virtue!
Let us demand Justice and a hard return to our Republic!
