When I was a kid, I thought every family had a copy of the Declaration of Independence hanging on their wall. Ours looked like the real thing; aged, wrinkly…for the longest time I thought it was the real one. My family wasn’t particularly patriotic that I remember, but my dad understood what our basic rights were and taught us to appreciate it. Interestingly, my Dad didn’t believe in God but he didn’t tell us not to believe…a basic right to religion that was fought for and died for.
“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.”
Think if it…in our Declaration of Independence we are told that we are endowed by our CREATOR – not Obama or a bowed up Supreme Court – to have CERTAIN unalienable (sovereign) rights! And those include LIFE, LIBERTY and the pursuit of HAPPINESS.
Our Framer’s America was blood covered fighting for the basic rights that we have since allowed to be renegotiated from a proud democracy to a socialistic embarrassment.
Our Framer’s America fought for us to have a sovereign right to LIFE, not death. It was never intended to have the ‘right’ to slaughter unborn children from their mother’s womb. The Framer’s America never intended for the government to mandate or pay for abortion and setting up the system to make the American people pay through their taxes.
In our Framer’s America, unborn children die for their country everyday because their country allowed their murder to be legal.
Without LIFE there is no Liberty and without Liberty, there is no LIFE. When you fire up the grill today and watch the fireworks, think of all that was fought for that is slowly becoming a distant memory.
One thought on “The Framer’s America”
That’s pretty cool that you guys had a copy of the DOI on display in your home. I didn’t know what the DOI was until high school, really. I mean, I knew a tad about it, but not much. A nod to the pathetic public school system of the United States…
All is good, though. The private H.S. and U of M I attended thereafter filled in all the gaps.
