Our Founding Fathers...

Compliments of our Declaration of Independence:

"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 whenever any form of government becomes destructive to 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.....

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."

We can not allow our government to further dictate what our rights are, that were given to us long before they were in office.

Until Next Time...

    As powerful and meaningful today as it was centuries ago. In fact it is more germane in this current environment with the slow disintegration of personal liberties. Incrementalism is a murderous cancer. If not rapidly and completely cut out it will kill the host. Thank you for the reminder. Greg Potnick

  2. There are many thing about our founding history that people have long forgotten. It is a detriment to ourselves as Americans to relinquish our histories to the current powers in charge, then sit idly by as they carve out the parts that give us a voice and discard them. I think more and more people need to be reminded of what is at stake, and that it isn't too late... If people want to save freedom and liberty...
