Skip to comments.The Declaration of Independence Reminds us to Put Tyrants on Notice

Perhaps the most enduring legacy of the Declaration of Independence is that it sought to overturn the long abuses and powers of tyrants. It revealed the truth of self-government and that power is inherent in the people. In the second introduction of the document, Jefferson declared:
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.
Jefferson, always the philosopher, reminds the reader that governments are instituted to protect the natural rights of man, to preserve their freedom above all else. Government is not intended to serve the bureaucracy, rulers, or an elite class.

Ferguson, Baltimore and D.C. Wish yourself luck, all hate you!
we will become very annoyed with these tyrants, and we will sent letters stating exactly how annoyed with them we are.
That is not necessary. It needs to return to its original intent, to serve us rather than to rule us. If blood must be shed, so be it, per part one of my tagline.
Howdy boys, in the mood for a little revolution, eh? You do know that there is a new fence around the White House? Let’s give the Convention of the States a go first, shall we?

No need to abolish it. just remove the cancer and let it heal. However right now the U.N. is serving as a conduit to spread the infection worlwide. In September I fear the U.N. will meet together under the ruse of providing solutions for worlwide problems when it is really the official establishment of the NWO. Pope Francis will be there.
Yes, May God Remove this Cancer ... For this ‘government’ has become the Cancer in need of Removal ...
When the people of this nation finally rise up and stand against the tyranny that currently oppresses us nothing will withstand their furor.
It does not require a majority. Indeed, only 10% of the colonists were revolutionaries. their fervor was sufficient to waken another 1/3 to the horrors of George’s tyranny.
We need a few good men and women who will stand in the breach and say to the corrupters, “Leave now or suffer the consequences of your infamy.”
Chief among the tyrants are Obama and his Supremes. The leadership of our Congress must be added to the list. Their paltry patriotism is insulting.
Where there is a leader of government, industry or the church who will not stand strong for the traditions of the American Way, that leader must be deposed.
A few great Americans are sounding the battle cry. Take up the flag and march on the battlements of corruption.
The Declaration of Independence also reminds us that our founders made a formal covenant with God for our independence and freedom. Rebuke God, and you will lose both.
You do not understand that the writer of the blog is calling for the nation not to forego the spirit of putting down tyranny if necessary? You might put down the beer and horseshoes and do some thinking about what you said.
May righteous Justice find all traitors in our midst.
“march on” as in “march against”
