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 to 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
It was in these bold words that freedom from tyranny was born - liberty was ignited in the hearts of men, and they fought a King. Their freedom gave rise to 13 unique and independent countries, who then united for their survival - despite their differences.
The birth of this union was so delicate and the structure so scrutinized so as not to create a new monarchy... even the title of the leader of the nation was in dispute, so as to sound less kingly - and thus President was selected, as one who presides over affairs - not one who rules.
Wars have come and gone. States have been added. Territories have been taken by force. The Union has been held together by force. The role of the Federal Government has expanded. The rights of the states have been expunged, along with it, the rights of the people.
The Federal Government is bankrupt - morally and otherwise.
The recent "bail-outs" have nationalized portions of certain industries - further expanding the power grab by the Federal Government.
There should be no doubt in anyone's mind that We The People are no longer free - we are ruled. This is not unique to Obama's administration, just culminating in it...
Prime example - beyond the harassment and constant fear by government rulers - is the recent threat from NY Senator Chuck Schumer that specific laws will be made, and enforced retroactively, to recover government funds in the Democrat's major screw-up leading to the AIG bail-out and subsequent $165 Million bonus disbursement - the first time that laws will be made specifically aimed at attacking individuals.
It is not unique to Democrats. Senator Charles Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, suggested that the AIG execs should go commit suicide.
President Obama has proven, in just 50 days, that he intends on eradicating free enterprise, eradicating the conversation on the right to life, and eradicating the right to personal protection through personal armament... among many other atrocious ills.
Democratic Leaders, namely Pelosi, are raising "troops" from foreign nations (i.e. illegal immigrants), demanding that THEY are the true American Patriots, turning her back on Americans for the sake of potential future voters - quid-pro-quo retaining her power... this amounts to nothing more than "fight for me and I will give you this nation".
Democrat Leaders along with Republican leaders have bankrupted this union, sold off security and treasury holdings to foreign enemies, and have done so with the total aim of POWER and RULE.
In the 21st Century, America has completely devolved... from a country that was born of fire and grit, standing up liberty in the face of tyranny - subjugation and tyrannical rule has now fully taken over. Numbered are the days when we can challenge our fellow citizen, for they are now our rulers.
Welcome to the Era of the Kings.
