The America, which our fellow countrymen fought and died for, is in peril. There is a growing discontent in the air…a palatable division, between those who roam the Halls of Power with impunity, and those of us in America’s Heartland, who are simply trying to live our everyday lives, excising our rights to continue our American Christian Heritage, while working hard, in an attempt to provide for our families and secure the continuance of the American Dream for our children and grandchildren.
This division between average Americans, and our elected representatives, who are no longer serving us, but are, instead, blatantly serving themselves, has taken a while to come about.
To some extent, it has always been so, since the formation of a our sovereign nation,comprised of weary travelers from faraway lands, who had escaped to these shores, seeking a refuge from the tyranny and oppression of despotic rulers.
They sought FREEDOM.
Our Founding Fathers made the case for American Freedom quite eloquently in the Declaration of Independence, which states…
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.
Heady words, to be sure. Inspiring words, which brought about the birth of a new nation, conceived in LIBERTY
Those left behind in Europe, took notice, and, began to act, attempting to secure FREEDOM and LIBERTY for themselves.
The French Revolution was sparked by our American Revolution, in which we threw off the yoke of tyranny, and established a representative form of government.
Between 1789 and 1802 France was torn apart by a revolution which wound up radically changing the government, administration, military and culture of the nation. This upheaval also affect those nations around France, sparking a series of wars around the European Continent. Because of this revolution, France went from a largely feudal state, suffering under the thumb of a despotic monarch, to a republic which executed the king, and, finally, to an empire ruled by another despot, Napoleon Bonaparte.
So, why have other nations, such as France, failed? Why did our Founders succeed?
The answer can be found in the last paragraph of that self-same Declaration of independence…
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
Our Founding Fathers would not have succeeding in throwing off the yoke of tyranny, without relying on the providential nature of Our Creator.
Fast forward to today, and the division between us and the self-serving professional politicians, occupying the Halls of Power in our nation’s capital.
As our forefathers experienced, we are presently under the thumb of a government, which is traveling in an opposite course from the overwhelming majority of its citizens. What makes our present situation intolerable, is the fact that , those who believe that they are “over us”, were actually chosen by us, to be our public servants.
These “Public Servants”, through the corruption of power and avarice, have become a New Aristocracy, answerable, or so they believe, only to themselves.
We have an opportunity in front of us, Americans…and choices to make. We can either throw off this Marxist-inspired, tyranny and corruption, which we find ourselves under, relying only on our own limited devices, or we can return to the Faith of our Fathers, the Divine Providence which secured our AMERICAN FREEDOM for us in the first place. History has shown us what happens when men endeavor to strike out on our own: We usually wind up back under the tyranny of men, instead of the Sovereignty of God.
God has given us a remarkable system of government. We have the opportunity in 2014, to “muck out the stalls” in Washington, DC. Our “hoses,shovels, and brooms” will consist of the tools given to us by our Creator, enumerated in our Founding Documents: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Assemble, and the Right to Vote.
Do you remember what happened in November of 2010?
Americans, through a groundswell movement, which became known as the Tea Party, named so in honor of the American Revolution, changed the make-up of Congress.
What we did not count on, was the fact that
Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely.
Hence, it is time to begin a New Tea Party Movement, not just relying on our own limited devices, but, as our Founding Fathers before us,
with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
Until He Comes,
