Here Comes The Left, There Goes Your Freedom
"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them to another.."
I don't want to hold a Doctor at gunpoint for his goods and services, if I would, I'm certain that mutual respect will leave the relationship between patient & doctor.
"..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.."
Notice, Rights do not extend to my doctors goods & services, if they did.. his Life, Liberty, and pursuit of Happiness would be impinged upon.
"-That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.."
'Just powers' can only exist when that power is granted by the people, in securing our basic unalienable rights, listed above. Securing other peoples goods and services cannot qualify as just, but is in fact "unjust".
"..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.."
Forgive me, but doesn't this go beyond a simple mid-term election?
.." But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object envinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and provide new Guards for their future security.."
Why yes, this does go beyond simply "throwing the bums out" of office. The American Declaration Of Independence calls to us today. It affirms that the individual is an end in himself, and that Rights are the rights to action, not claims to the fruits of others, no matter what the level of need is. It morally condems collectivism and all its various forms, Welfare Statism, Nanny Statism, Theocracy, Rule By Mob, Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Dictatorship, Fascisim, Royalty, Anarchy, and Oligarchy. It allows all mens minds to be free, because it is the benevolent nature of most men, and most mens minds, to seek to survive, and thrive. This means Capitalism, which means trading value for value, not guns and clubs trading blow for blow. We are a nation of persuaders and volunteers, not a nation of enforcers and slaves.
Find your Congressmans office number online, program it into your cell, make those calls. Show up in November to vote. Read The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and The Federalist Papers. Join a Tea Party group, make a sign, and as Abigal Freemantle once said..."Stand".
