237 years ago, the final wording was approved on the draft for the #Declaration of #Independence. That’s right… Over 200 years ago, in the wonderful year #1776. That is the reason this day became such an important marker in history my friends, but more so, because of what that document meant for our people, and for the standard it set for ALL of mankind. The premise of #freedom from #oppression is first of all, a #choice. We can choose to remain shackled or we can choose to become free of all that binds us. We can choose to come together to #fight those who would leech our lives, resources and our #liberties, or we can choose to ignore them.
Here is an #excerpt of the Declaration of Independence, which I find to be applicable in our current state:
"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."
Let me ask you all, as you celebrate with #beer and #BBQ’d #foods, #fireworks and good #friends/family…
What have you done with your #rights, with your freedom?
More importantly… What WILL you do with your right, and your freedom from this moment further?
Happy Independence Day #America. Let us not squander our independence for one more #moment. (at United States Of America)
