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. (And as I have noted before, the more common saying was, Life, Liberty, and Property.)
If all men are created as equals, no one is to be above another. There is only one above us, a Creator.
I have been recently reflecting upon the arguments that stem from people claiming that we are a “Christian” nation. There were among our founding fathers deists, not “Christians.” But the conclusion I have come to is that the way the documents upon which these united states were formed, shows clearly that those who wrote, supported and embraced said documents at their conception were likely one (Christian) or the other(deists). For how could we give deference to a Creator, if there were gods? Or if there were none whatsoever? And if we are graciously granted rights (if you notice the founders acknowledge that there are more than the 3 mentioned) by this Deity, the question arises, what, if any, are the requirements of this Deity?
To me, the basis of all law is finding out the answer to this question.
And in judging from the numerous courts across this nation that have the Ten Commandments engraved in their walls or otherwise posted in some manner, it would appear that the basis used to answer my question were the scriptures or as some would say the ethics dictated by a Judeo-Christian heritage. We were to a be people that held to the rule of law.
If there is a Creator, a Being that created us, what do we owe to this Creator? As equals with each other (all created beings) what do we owe, if anything, to each other? What is life? What is death? Or as I like to say, “What's it all about Alfie?” How are we to live our lives upon this earth in the time allotted us?
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. You will note that this is in direct opposition to the Divine Right of kings. But today many preachers would have us believe it still, the Divine right of Kings - only they will use “President” or “government” and site Romans 13. But are they righting dividing the Word?
I note that God Himself gave His people the type of government they wanted; they wanted a king like the other nations, and He warned them, but gave them a king. (1Sam 8) He acknowledged their unalienable right to choose their government.
We have allowed ourselves to become slaves of the state. And by the state, I mean a form of government, not Wisconsin or Michigan. A form of government that “grants” rights as it deems fit, not a form of government that “secures” our unalienable rights. Those of us who have awakened to the understanding of our lost liberty, have found each other through sites such as this one, and through groups that formed to support Dr. Paul in his run for the presidency. We see clearly that our two-party system has become corrupted and is a sham, a front for the oligarchy that now rules. And there are those who are just on the verge of awakening or those who are dimly awakened, who have joined various other groups; I would rate the tea party participants at this stage. All this awakening has prompted the goons to move as fast as they can to pass more “laws” and to declare more “executive orders” to contain those who are their enemies, those who they are even now declaring “domestic terrorists” and “threats to our national security.”
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.
We are taxed more than the founding fathers, our bonds of slavery are far more reaching and strong, our list of abuses far greater than theirs. So where is the outrage, where the men of courage and principle? Where are our Thomas Jefferson and John Adams? Dr. Paul has heralded the call to awaken, now where are the Sons of Liberty to lead us back to claiming what is ours?
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. To which we are accustomed. We are the frog in the water that has been heating slowly over many years, but many of us are feeling the heat and jumping out of the pot! Many are going Galt. Some are entering the political arena. Some are moving out of the United States (or at least moving their assets offshore) and many are preparing for the inevitable collapse of the dollar and this nation as we remember it. For this nation is no longer what we are taught that it is, - a republic, a people ruled by law, law that is embraced to protect the unalienable rights of men who are equal under the law.
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.
And now it is time to begin to enumerate the injuries and usurpations. I am not a lawyer, nor am I an eloquent speaker or writer. But I am ready to get my liberty back. So on this Sunday, I am praying for those who are well trained in the law, who know history and will stand up for individual rights, to step forward and lead on us into the next step of this journey of reclaiming our liberty.
May our Creator bless you today,
