One Revolution Is Not Enough

What Our Founding Fathers Revolted Over

How about this July 4th we celebrate our freedoms like we mean them?  What would happen if tomorrow all American's suddenly woke up and were infused with the real reason our Founding Fathers revolted against the King and took it upon themselves to set this once fledgling set of colonies on the greatest path known to mankind, the establishment of freedom and the United States of America?

What would happen if tomorrow each and every American expressed each and every one of their God given rights from freedom of speech through the right to keep and bear arms?

No doubt people like me who secretly wish for a full-on revolution against this corrupt government of ours, and those who openly advocate for it are considered to be reactionaries, extremists and at best "hotheads" but let me remind you of what our Founding Fathers said, wrote and lived as they took on the King and his corruption, which in my view mirrors that which we have today in Washington D.C. 

Was one revolution enough?  Read these words and ask yourself that very question.  No doubt you'll join the reactionaries, extremists, and 'hotheads' like me.

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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 of 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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. 
(Note: Obama and the Democrat Party forcing government controlled health care on the country.)
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. 
(Gulf oil spill anyone?  Refusing to let the States protect their own shores, bogging them down in federal regulation.)
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. 
(Obama Administration's continued refusal to secure our borders, bullying Arizona, threatening lawsuits.)
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.  
(Again, Obama's refusal to protect our borders while demanding 20,000,000 new illegal aliens/would be Democrat voters be nationalized.)
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers. 
(Obama Administration orders to drop charges against the "New Black Panthers" in a major voter intimidation case during the 2008 elections.  Also, Obama ordered Holder to drop any race-based cases for black on white crimes.)
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. 
(TARP, Auto Company bailouts that directly benefitted the UAW, Obama bailouts of the SEIU Pension Fund and more...)

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.  
(CZARS anyone??!!)

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:  
(Obama's continued deference to the impotent "United Nations", his sign-on to U.N. accords that would ban gun ownership in America, his desire to implement  "Cap and Trade" as part of a government world-wide tax schem to stop "Global Warming")
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: 
(Health Care, 'Death Tax' and soon the largest tax increase in the history of the country, just 6 days away.  To say nothing about "Cap and Trade" and other taxes this Democrat Congress wants to impose on us against our will.)
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: 
(Ask yourself: what's happend to MY rights?  MY liberties?  MY pursuit of happiness?  At Obama's hands, you've become a TAX SLAVE, bailing out banks, automobile companies, unions and their pension funds and in fact other countries like Greece who've spent their way into oblivion.  Where were the laws to protect US from this corrupt regime from continually reaching into our pockets and seizing our hard earned money?  Those laws were obliterated by the Obama Administration which far overstepped its Constitutional authority in demanding all these 'bailouts' in the first place!)
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. 
(Jan Brewer, Governor of Arizona knows all about this, as do the good people of Arizona.)
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. 
(At the time, the Colonists relied on the seas and coasts along with their towns (farmlands) to make their living.  I belive here they're referring to their economic sustinence.  Obama's certainly wrecked our economy with all the bailouts, "stimulus" and re-distribution of wealth schemes hasn't he?)
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. 
(Now ask yourself, this was supposed to be the 'post racial' President.  Has there ever been a time in this country when race relations were this tense?  When black and white couldn't have an honest conversation about race?  When we can't criticize a President without being called "RACIST!" I think that's about as bad as it gets.)
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. 
(By all accounts, the Tea Parties have been civil in the true American tradition of protest against a tyrannical Government, with millions upon millions of people attending them.  Yet, our petitions for redress against this Government have not only gone largely ignored, they've been slandered and mischaracterized as "racist" by an Administration that refuses to face the truth about its own failed policies, ineptness and incompetence in dealing with our economy and the state of this nation's foreign affairs, to name just two.)
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
These words my friends are not the rantings of a madman.  They are the words of our founding fathers and they ring as true today as they did some two hundred and thirty-four years ago.  Notice the parallels between then and now?  If I were to dig deeper and think harder this early on a Saturday morning surely I could find more examples than I did above, but I think you get the point.

Am I a raving madman, or am I simply a Patriotic American who's been paying attention to what this Government has been doing daily to whittle away our rights and liberties?

This fourth of July, celebrate your freedoms like you mean them, at the rate this Country is going we may not have those freedoms much longer.
