Stand for IndependencePosted: August 31, 2012
The moral foundation of the U.S. Constitution is found in the Declaration of Independence and its principles pertaining to equal rights. Under the Constitution, government was to be limited to protecting those rights – however, as our government grows in power and becomes less limited – our liberty becomes less secure!!!
“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….”
This country belongs to “We the People“, not to the politicians, not to the media circus, and not to foreign interests, or out-of-control corporations who siphon-off the tax dollars of Americans to line their pockets and save their businesses from their own greed and bad-management decisions!!! I am proud to call America my home. I am thankful to God for those who have helped to build this great land, and for those who have defended her freedom throughout the course of history. We are Americans. We can make a difference regardless of what some my say or believe – America is still here, still strong, and still the Greatest Nation on the Earth! She is just waiting for us – “We the People” to stand up and make a difference.
“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their Constitutional right of amending it or their revolutionary right to dismember it or overthrow it.”
– Abraham Lincoln
