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.

Dismiss this warning at your own peril. Believe in the Beltway pundits if you must. After all, they’ve helped you achieve freedom and liberty by limiting and reducing government over the years. Right?
In my 41 years, the government has consistently grown in size and scope as we continue to march further and further down the road of serfdom. In other words, the Beltway pundits have harmed our cause, not helped.
These are not normal times. They are historical times. Volatile times. Keep listening to the same, tired-old mumblers … at America’s peril.
Washington will no longer vote on legislation, but instead, we now have law by fiat.
Fight for nothing less than the liberty and freedom our founding generations bequeathed us. Compromise won’t do. “Republican” isn’t enough.
The Grim Reaper is knocking at America’s door. What are YOU going to do about it?
