Independence Day #243
America – Still the boldest experiment in liberty and self-government in human history
Remember Daniel Webster:
Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.
The Declaration of Independence
“Self-evident truths” are still self-evident truths:
• All men and women created equal (by the Creator)
• All endowed by the Creator with inalienable rights
- The pursuit of happiness
It took a pledge of ‘lives, fortunes and sacred honor’ to found America; it requires the same to preserve her.
What’s So Great About America?
The Left would have all Americans believe there is nothing special about this country. There’s a simple, common sense answer to the Left:
IS THERE ANY OTHER COUNTRY ON EARTH WHERE PEOPLE ARE LINING UP DESPERATELY SEEKING TO GET IN?

REMEMBER GEORGE WASHINGTON:
“No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conducts the Affairs of men more than the People of the United States. Every step, by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation, seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency.”
Founder and Leader Wisdom
The Declaration of Independence is the ringbolt to the chain of your nation’s destiny…The principles contained in that instrument are saving principles. Stand by those principles, be true to them on all occasions, in all places, against all foes, and at whatever cost.
It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.
