"History has taught us time and again that political power always raises its angry fist when timeless principles are lost. We know that without the scale of "self-evident truths" grounded in the "laws of nature and nature's God," every culture eventually finds itself subject to the rule of the gang or the tyranny of the individual. Recognizing this, scholars of all ages have confidently given their hearts and minds to the words, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." "
Everett Piper
(1959-) President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University (2002-2019)

    wow, we hold this truth to be self evident - certainly not the normal thought of the day. Helots, serfs, slaves and all other specie of patrons now genuflect in willful obedience to compelled compliance, government licenses, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, Social Security, police state confiscations, etc.), alienation of nature's endowed rights and all other enforcements of a malefactor's totalitarianism (all such being antithetical to self-evident truths, the laws of nature and nature's God, constitutional law, common law, freedom, liberty, justice, and inalienable rights).

    Freed from the bounds of earthly monarchs. "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. The young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation." Psalm 91
