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.
Our founding fathers worked for years to before declaring their independence from Great Britain. They loved their country, Great Britain as do I love mine, the United Sates. We need to stand up and demand that our government officials listen to us and do what is best for our beloved country. Each day that goes by we see more of the freedoms that we celebrate on this day disappear. It is sad the the Fourth of July, has become nothing more then a day for cookouts and fireworks for some people. Many men and women have risked and given their lives so we can live free from a suppressive government and yet we are just letting the government take over our lives. We have been giving up our God given rights for years and it is time to stop.
Government has its place in our lives. It is the ensure our right of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. It is our duty to ensure that the government of the United States protects those right. One has the right to live by working hard for his or her family. Liberty is the freedom to live without the Government controlling how we live. When it comes to the pursuit of Happiness, some of our greatest happiest comes after our greatest failures. We as humans are happiest went we have to pursue something not when it is given to us. We have the right to live without the worry that the government will come and take away the things we worked hard to achieve.
We as the United States of America, should be a beacon of freedom to all people of the world. I have been watch the events in Honduras, the people there are fighting for freedom. The military ousted a President who was try to over take the government. They were protecting the people of Honduras' right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. We should be standing by the people of Honduras, not the dictator want to be. Read La Gringa's Blogicito to read about what is going on in Honduras. While I was in the Philippines, I talked with a couple of Filipinos that wish they were still part of the United States. If we are as bad as so many of our government officials in Washington and the idiots in Hollywood say then why do so many people want to come here and live? Why are they leaving the country that we are trying to become in things are better there?
We should welcome all people into our great country, but they should come here the legal way. They coming here legally ensures they can achieve the American Dream like everyone else. Our willingness to welcome people and give them the freedom achieve their dreams is what has this country great.
I hope you enjoy your Fourth of July. Remember, that the Freedoms we are celebrating today must be defended from people inside and out. Today, is not just a day for cookouts and fireworks. It is a day, to celebrate the light of freedom for the whole world, the United States of America. May God bless the United States.
