One of the Greatest Documents written in our history, as a nation, is the Declaration of Independence, in my opinion. It is a document that Thomas Jefferson sweated over to get it just right I believe the following words are the most important.
"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"
With all that's happening in our country I do hope, WE, the Silent Majority, need to start raising our voices to counter the radical 10%. The only way to defeat a bully is to stand up to them. This is also true regarding our government.
..."deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed"
I love our country. There is nowhere else I'd rather be and I am proud to be an American.
Happy Birthday America and Happy Independence Day!.
