DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
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. (Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776)
No truer words were ever more self evident than in 2010 …
People have asked what is the Tea Party about and what do they stand for. Michael Barone’s article in The Washington Examiner hits pretty close to the point. The Tea Party is against higher taxes, out of control spending, record federal deficits, bail outs, politicians who have for got who they work for and most importantly, BIG GOVERNMENT. What do the Tea Party folks really want … INDEPENDENCE!!!
The direction put forth by Our Founding Fathers is what has allowed “We the People” to become the most prosperous, Representative Democratic nation in the world, not an over reaching and controlling nanny state government. We are the most productive, charitable and yes, whether you like it or not President Obama … the dominant world super power.
