This week on Thursday is the day we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The American Colonists signed that declaration to let the whole world, including King George III, know that this group of people will no longer be subjugated to a government telling them how they were to live their lives and what they were to think. From July 4th of 1776 on the American Colonist and all future Americans would be free and independent from the dictates of government running their individual lives.
The Declaration of Independence states among other great declarations that we are all created or born equal, that our Creator, yes God, gave us certain rights that are never to be taken from us. These rights include life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Upon these great truths, and yes on the rights given to us by God, these American Colonists built a nation that truly did become that “shining city on the hill.” This nation was built on allowing and encouraging the individual to become the best they good become. This nation was built on the individual making their own choices and then that individual accepting that it was their choices that were responsible for the consequences, be they good or bad.
In that same Declaration, these American Colonists chastised the tyrannical King for many of the policies they rejected because they were confining and controlling. These people said they were willing to lose all they had, including their lives, to free themselves from the shackles and bonds of government. This was why we celebrate July 4th. It represents the day a people said that less government is better government.
"Our legislators are not sufficiently apprised of the rightful limits of their power: that their true office is to declare and enforce only our natural rights and duties and to take none of them from us. No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him; every man is under the natural duty of contributing to the necessities of the society, and this is all the laws should enforce on him." --Thomas Jefferson
We heard it reiterated time after time on the debate stage this week and we have heard it proclaimed more and more by those in the Marxist/Progressives (Democrat) party, “the role of government is to take from those who would work and give to those who would not, the role of government is to restrict the natural rights of people, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to bring about some concept of social justice, the role of government is to punish those who pursue happiness and achieve because they are greedy and evil, the role of government is to control the lives and thoughts of the citizens so all conform to the dictates of the collective, the role of government is to become like the government headed by King George III, the government from which the American Colonists revolted.
My question was what will the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) celebrate on July 4th, Independence Day? They cannot be celebrating that we are all created equally because they believe certain people should be given priorities because of an unequal status at birth. They cannot be celebrating our natural rights of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, because they want to take the life of the unborn, they want to restrict our liberties, including but not limited to religion and speech, and they wish to punish and demean any who pursued their happiness and were successful in achieving their happiness by taking from them, punishing them, and demeaning them.
What the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) want is to revert to the time of tyrannical government where government reigns supreme and the people are the subjects of that government. This is what we heard last week and have been hearing more and more. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) should be vehemently protesting July 4th, Independence Day as did the tyrannical government of King George III. Many of them will. Those who are not and who do participate in the festivities are doing so because it is fun or because they have never read the Declaration of Independence and do not understand that it refutes the very principles of the party they support; the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party.
