The American Declarations are unique in all of history.
Using only a few brief statements, the following attempts to identify that our country is in danger of losing its foundational roots. It is hoped the statements will motivate readers to review the few listed background items and to seek and examine the vast amount of available information on what we were in the beginning and where & how we got to where we are today.
Our Country was founded on and based on the Declaration of Independence. Key words in the Declaration are: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that All Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain UNalienable (UN) rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (that is; property), that to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, Deriving Powers from the Consent of the Governed.” “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, fortunes and our sacred honor.” Note that Life is the first God given Unalienable right. The first draft used Inalienable (IN) rights. Jefferson and the committee changed it to Unalienable because it was one of the fundamental reasons for the Declaration. UN rights are given and controlled only by God, and IN are rights arbitrarily made and controlled by man. That was the definition of UN & IN back then, but many today unknowingly use them interchangeably. The developers and signers of the Declaration made their intention clear when they insisted that the document state that Unalienable rights are Endowed by their Creator and Not by man. [See items 1,2,4,7,8]
The Constitution was developed to have a “rule of law” Process by which each and every American citizen would be afforded the God given rights as given in The Declaration of Independence. It was also intended that any Government must be an extension of the people and should only function with the consent of the people. In 1798, John Adams said: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” His words are consistent with those of the other founders and most Presidents. [See items 1,2,4,7,8, and page 2]
The opposite of our Declaration, and Constitution, are the INs which includes: atheistic Marxism, and other like isms, with their secular collective man made Inalienable rights. Those isms are a form of slavery by which man controls man’s Life, Liberty, and Property. They ultimately eliminate and destroy any sense of individuality and personal freedoms whereby man exists under the whims of Kings, Czars, Congresses, and other man-made State elements.
As it was in the beginning, America today is in a critical “moral and religious” war. That war is about whether we live by God Given Individual Unalienable rights or by Man Made Collective secular Inalienable rights. Capitalism, collectivism, and other isms are subsets in the war between UN and IN. A uniqueness of the documents is that they place man Between his Creator and the State, and not as lowly servants Under the State & State elements.
The largest IN element over the past 100 years is Marxism. The primary targets of the INs are the God of & the believers in the Bible and compromising our founding documents. A major weapon of the INs in this ongoing moral and religious war is WMW (Weapons of Mass Words) in which they gain sweeping control, with effective exploitation, of All means of information and communications. WMWs includes: the media, education systems, entertainment, and political activities. Their tactics include: Indoctrination, Active Measures, and Disinformation [See items; 9,15,19,20,&,25]. Their prime goal is to destroy the targets from Within. It would be useful to conduct an analysis to determine if we have more or less Unalienable rights of life, liberty, and property than in 1776. Past and recent successes of the INs are many. One is the abortion issue which has allowed over 40,000,000 “legal” killings since Roe vs. Wade, putting the U.S. in league with Marxist countries. Others include: the increasing taxes on everything; the increasing government control over our lives; the ever increasing removal of God everywhere; and their goal to “change Independence to Dependence”. [See p 2 & 3]
We are in danger of losing this foundational war against tyranny, yet again. We must relearn and Know what our founding documents, our Founding Fathers, and the people that fought for our independence (America’s greatest generation) Gave us. We must Defend and Restore the moral sanctity of this unique and great nation. We need to again have a “Hunger for Liberty” and stop any “Threat of Anarchy” [See items 1 & 2].
SOME WORDS BY THE FOUNDERS and others:
JOHN ADAMS: “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
JAMES MADISON: “On the distinctive principles of the Government – of the U. States, the best guides are to be found in – The Declaration of Independence as the fundamental Act of the Union of these states”.
JAMES MADISON: “Because we hold it for a fundamental and undeniable truth, that religion or the duty which we owe our Creator and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence. The religion then of every man must be left to the conviction and conscience of every man, and it is the right of every man to exercise it as these may dictate. This right is in its nature an unalienable right. It is unalienable, because the opinions of men, depending only on the evidence contemplated by their own minds cannot follow the dictates of other men: It is unalienable also, because what is here a right towards man, is a duty towards the Creator. It is the duty of every man to render to the Creator such homage and such only as he believers to be acceptable to him.”
THOMAS JEFFERSON: “God who gave us life gave us liberty.”
THOMAS JEFFERSON: “No power over the freedom of religion is delegated to the United States by the Constitution.”
THOMAS JEFFERSON: “The Declaration of Independence — [is the] declaratory charter of our rights, and the rights of man.”
SAMUEL ADAMS: “Among the natural rights of Colonists are: First, a right to life; Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to defend them.”
WILLIAM PENN: “If we will not be governed by God, then we will be ruled by Tyrants.”
GEORGE MASON: “The laws of nature are the laws of God, Whose authority can be superseded by no power on earth.”
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
HARRY TRUMAN: “If we don’t have a proper fundamental moral background, we will finally end up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
HARRY TRUMAN: He often quoted Marcus Aurelius who said; “The only new thing you do not know is the history you have not read.”
DWIGHT EISENHOWER: “Our whole theory of government finally expressed in our Declaration … said … Man is endowed by his Creator ….”
JOHN KENNEDY: “The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.”
RONALD REAGAN: “The First Amendment was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny.”
RONALD REAGAN: “Without God, democracy will not and cannot endure. If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God then we will be one nation gone under.”
RONALD REAGAN: “— man is not free unless government is limited. — As Government expands, liberty contracts.”
STATE CONSTITUTIONS AND GOD: “The 50 United States Constitutions reveal what today’s American citizen has forgotten – that Bibical moral virtue, belief in faith, and reliance on Almighty God is what created, built, and sustained our Nation. America’s Founders did not intend for there to be a separation of God and state, as obvious by the fact that all 50 states acknowledged God in their state constitutions.” See Preambles.
