Our Political Leaders NEED A Little Friendly Reminder: I Submit To You The United States of America ~ Declaration of Independence!

I want for you to think about this for a moment. Why do you think people are still flocking into the United States from other countries? Many are even risking their lives to get a taste of the FREEDOM many of us take for granted. Why do you think? Because they are leaving behind oppressive governments, slavery and undesirable living conditions. The United States may not be perfect. Nevertheless, we are still much better off than any other nation on this planet. The United States offers freedom from religious persecution (you can worship whomever or whatever you want or NOT), freedom to love whomever you want without persecution (ie; from whatever race, religion or gender), freedom from censorship (communication tools are not blocked by the government), freedom from LIMITATIONS!

The opposite of FREEDOM is oppression. Oppression can be physical, psychological, emotional and even financial. If you are working your tail off and the government is taxing you up the wazoo, let's say 65% of your earnings that my friends is a form of SLAVERY! Because you are basically working to sustain government employee salaries, wonderful benefits, fully paid for retirement pensions and retirement medical benefits! Our government is bloated. It's time to cut the fat. NO MORE RAISES FOR YOU until you get our financial house in order. D.C. YOU DON'T DESERVE RAISES! Plus, your tax money goes toward paying for non-government programs you know nothing about (EARMARKS/GRANTS aka pay for play. Using our taxpayer money to buy and secure votes), leaving you with enough net earnings to pay for a modest living that "THEY" deem acceptable. This administration is INTENT on taxing us any which way they can from every angle possible to be able to pay for the INTEREST ALONE on the national debt they have incurred in the last 5 1/2 years! They'll even be sneaky about it. Oh they know we're on to them, so they won't call it a tax. They'll call it a fine, a fee, a penalty. You just wait and see. Be alert and speak up! We don't work for them. They work for us. They are our employees. Oh and one last thing... can we all be in agreement and start demanding TERM LIMITS for all politicians at every level (federal, state and local). That would be a good start in getting rid of the corruption, greed and fraud in our government. NO MORE CAREER POLITICIANS! The jig is up.

The Declaration of Independence was the PROMISE;
The Constitution was the fulfillment.

Constitution of the United States of America

We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common Defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution FOR The United States of America.

The Declaration of Independence

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

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 of 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.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. 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.

Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

"The sacred RIGHTS of Mankind are NOT to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can NEVER be erased or obscured by mortal power."
Alexander Hamilton, 1775
