"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."

    Some of the finest words penned on the North American Continent. Unfortunately all that was given has now been taken away. The people's representatives, on both sides of the 49th parallel sell out to corporate interest allowing them to replace "We the people" with a series of "Mission Statements". The true tyrant is now the Corporate Plutocracy that has crushed democracy and will continue to do so at every opportunity.

    Jefferson was one of the best.

    Devine Providence according to who's authority ? Created according to what measure ? What makes equal ? What reconciliation has been provided ? That a person might stand Free before God and all Nations and authority ?
     -- Ron w13, Or     
    Divine Providence: that which we believe is larger than ourselves or any MAN. And keep in mind, this says AMONG these...so it isn't limited by MAN.
     -- Abby     

    3 Liberties, and 13 Attributes provided by our Creator's nature afford us the foundational understanding of the Rock upon which our Republic rest. Harmony of Sound Doctrines by way of nature's laws of Cause and Effect. " I Am, In Amen " effects his will. Divine Providence and the sacred cause of Liberty and Freedom return to the forefront of Conscious ( Ruwb ) Debate. Our New Commander and Chief, President Donald J. Trump, is fully aware of the task laid before him. knowing he has a Sound Foundational footing with which to Restore our Republican form of Government. Happy 4th of July Patriots. 2018

    God Bless and Semper Fi
