Where Did America Come From?
Posted by bosskitty on April 30, 2007
Anyone take time to read the Declaration of Independence lately?
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. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it.
Thanks to Service Academy Graduates Against the War, for reminding us that it is not always the military chomping at the bit to “kill somebody”.
It is too clear that the corporate dollar squeezes the blood out of the citizens of this planet to increase its bottom line. Those CEO perks are so very expensive, of course someone must pay.
I share a grateful message I sent to SAGAW:
I enjoy reading your enlightened observations into this country’s foundations and recognizing the core principles that created what we call the United States of America. It saddens me that so few take the time to research and understand this document. We take for granted what other countries call privileges, we call “inalienable rights“. I see a decline in what this country is supposed to stand for. Your page resurrects hope that recovery from today’s insanity is possible. We face a long and treacherous road to recovery. Your members represent an educated leadership that has not sold out. I encourage your participation in guiding this country out of a political fog and back into sunlight.
