Skip to comments.Fourth of July: We Still Hold Those Truths Because They Hold Us and Our Future

..."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."
The principles of that Declaration have informed our history and inspired our neighbors in other parts of the world to stand up against all forms of tyranny. As we reflect upon the text we should remember that our forebears were not declaring their independence from Divine Providence. Rather, they were trusting in the Governance of God over their noble undertaking in forging a new Nation which Lincoln would proclaim years later was "conceived in liberty".
They sought independence from a monarchy which had become tyrannical precisely because it had forgotten the implications of the primacy of Divine Providence. The principles set forth in that Declaration were a rallying cry which called forth extraordinary sacrifice. They were rooted in something greater than political expediency. Those heroic men, women and children who sacrificed to birth this nation believed there were truths - objective truths- to be held. Those truths are self evident. They include the existence of unalienable rights given to all men and women by a Creator.

Very cool rendition!!! Loved it. Thanks for the post.
Because we are the brave
Yes we are the brave
We’ll fight tyranny
In the name of the free
We are the U.S. of A
For those unaware
That flag is still there
====> It’s our future to save <====
This land of the brave
The U.S. of A
I love them both but Madison Rising is a banner I want sung the moment after Obama is defeated.
There is nothing left to save, here at home there are no brave. We will sit and complain as one by one we are taken away to the re-education camps.
Our New World Order is made up of fascists who want to reduce the planets population, and reduce it they will.
By the thousands, no hundreds of thousands they will murder us off, and still we will just complain, just as we have done while they murder 30 million unborn babies.
Obama and his murdering socialists recieved over 50% of the Catholic vote, and yet again they will vote in droves for the “one”.
If it were left up to us alone then you would be right....but is is not.
A spark will take hold and light a fuse that will set forth a chain of events much like the Stamp Act did. Proving then and NOW that this Republic was born through Divine Providence and it WILL be saved by Divine Providence.
I know it will.
