We Hold these Truths to be Self Evident and Sacred!

By: Richard H. Frank

Today more than at any time in recent history every American should heed the message of our Founding Fathers as expressed so eloquently in our Declaration of Independence.  “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal”, (equal in opportunity not equal in all things), “that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”, (not by the government but by the Creator) “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.” (The consent of the Governed not powers taken by, or  imposed upon the People by the Government).

“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its power in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety or Happiness.”……”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.” (Government by bureaucratic edict or regulation, Presidential executive orders and mandates that exceed the powers enumerated in the Constitution are all evidence of Government moving toward despotism and out of control).

July 4, 1776 was the date our Founders declared their independence from an overbearing government under the rule of the King of England. Let us pledge that July 4, 2010 is the date when each  American will  declare our independence and throw off the yoke of socialism fostered by the liberal progressives in this country over the past 100 years. A new Revolution fought at the ballot boxes across this Nation in November, to elect representatives that believe in the principles of “Self Government” enumerated  in the Declaration of  Independence and our Constitution. We will make our vote the weapon to return to the American values that have sustained us in the past as the greatest country in the world.
