I believe that after the Holy Bible, the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence are the three most important written documents that exist on this planet. Below is the first section of the United States Declaration of Independence.
I hope you will take the time to read what I have shared with you today and take an extra minute out of your busy day to pay special attention to what our founding fathers had to say. They spoke from experience and personally, I believe they were inspired by the Almighty Creator. These are extremely powerful words that weren’t just pulled out of thin air.
I have taken the liberty to highlight a few statements that I believe are quite relevant to many things that are taking place today, in this the greatest nation on earth.
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
Over the weekend, I listened to Rush Limbaugh’s address to the Conservative Political Action Conference. If you haven’t seen it, this link is one resource where you can.
Rush spoke of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness and what he said was that the only thing standing in anyone’s way of achieving such was government interference.
Government is too big, too powerful, secretive and lacking in consideration of the people. It steps outside the legality of the Constitution and yet we the people say nothing in objection. Isn’t it time to change that?
