SINCE WE HAVE OUR INDEPENDENCE DAY COMING

Since our Independence Day is coming up and we celebrate. There are a few things I would like you to consider. Most of which was probably not taught to you in school, or at least fully explained so that you have a understanding of what is involved in our independence. Which, call me crazy I feel is important if you going to celebrate something that you probably do not know.

I’m not a radical person or into politics, and even I just became aware of this information recently that I found to be very interesting. More importantly however interesting it is I found it’s important for people to understand and realize the significance of it. For me personally after reading and understanding it, I have a different view on things.

In general, I have a different view when people complain about certain things, particularly their current leadership and government. Like I said I do not get involved in politics but researching it is interesting. This brings me to our celebration on July 4 Independence Day, that most people who celebrate it I am sure have some grievances complaints are unhappy with “certain things”…….. But they will celebrate their independence while being non-independent….

Anyway, some interesting reading for the upcoming celebration of our independence day, and a reminder of what it stands for and means.

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

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.
