Happy Free From Tyranny Weekend

Declaration of Independence Committee

“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.” 

Everyone (except Obama and liberal traitors) knows this line of the most important document ever written in the founding of this experiment we call the United States of America.  While as important as this statement is, I believe that the last sentence of the Declaration (if not the last two paragraphs) brings more light as to the convictions of the great men that drafted and signed it. 

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” 

These Patriots put it all on the line.  Not only did they send the crown a blatant “up yours”, they knew well that they may not survive to actually see the whole thing come to pass.  I’ll break it down a little more and you tell me what you think.

First of all 56 devoted men showed their support.  Support for something they actually tried fervently to prevent from happening in the first place.  They just wanted to be free to govern themselves.  That sounds pretty easy given the liberties we have now.  Even with the tyranny bestowed upon us by our own federal leviathan we are still the “freest” nation in all the world. (NAME ONE MORE FREE, BACK IT UP and I’LL STOP BLOGGING)

Second, the signers had  spiritually based knowledge (not conception) that GOD was not only in charge of what was going on but through doing His will the DEVINE CREATOR would  see it through.  How many of us here in America have even a fraction of the true faith that these men had? P.S.- Thomas Jefferson was not a deist!

Pledging their lives to not only each other but to the divinely inspired experiment was at this point an easy thing to do.  Read the grievances they were experiencing and listed and you would give your life too.  How soon we forget and give up the few freedoms we still enjoy.  “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, Deserve neither Liberty nor Safety” – Benjamin Franklin

Their fortune was a pretty easy one too.  The King was pretty much taking it all anyway.  Remember these people didn’t have running water or refrigerators much less air conditioning and HDTV.  Some of the founders even had to acquire great debt to even do the business of this fledgling government.

SACRED HONOR should never be underestimated as it refers to the way these men knew it.  People now days don’t normally have a clue as to what they are saying much less have direction to their actions.  The little or BIG SCREEN box we stare at for so much of our miserable lives tells us what to say or do.  It even tells us who to pray to on occasion. Have you seen the amount of commercials for green this or green that lately?  No, sacred honor meant EVERYTHING to these men because it was just that, SACRED. 

Do you know the true meaning of HONOR?

    Excellent post and excellent blog!

    I followed you from an incoming link on my blog, thanks so much for adding me to your blogroll. I have done the same for your new endeavour and have also added you to my list of blogs for my daily Last Night Link’s post. I hope you the best of wishes in blogging (given your writing, should be en easy task) and offer a hand of felicity and help if you should ever so need it.

    • Thanks and I may take you up on the help. I need all I can get. I look forward to sharing with you in the future. Please take a look at my other posts and Mission Statement. I’m really looking to get some real action going. Thanks again.

  2. Well said, though I disagree with you calling the Declaration of Independence “the most important document ever written in the founding of this experiment we call the United States of America.” I still think the Constitution is more important.

    “The example of changing a constitution, by assembling the wise men of the State, instead of assembling armies, will be worth as much to the world as the former examples we had given them.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

    • For some reason my first reply didn’t get posted so I’ll try this again.
      While both are an integral part of the American foundings and I will have many posts on the Constitution, you have to agree that the Declaration came first. Without the Declaration and the events that led up to and followed it we would not even be discussing the Constitution. In the spirit of Independence weekend and the happenings of late in this country I feel the Declaration is getting left out. Find me a politician worthy of even reciting it in it’s entirety. Most on the “hill” can’t even understand most of the words much less tell you what they refered to at the time. It’s just an old rag to them. To most patriots of today it is much more. It’s the culmination of events that led to the perverbal middle finger being sent to the crown. That’s something we wouldn’t do to the president much less to the extent the founders did. Maybe my next post will be on the Constitution.
      Thanks for the comment and I look forward to more. Please read the other posts and let me know what you think. Any help would be appreciated greatly.

      • Yes, the Declaration came before the Constitution, but dozens of state and local declarations came before “the” Declaration (See Pauline Maier’s American Scripture). Of course, Common Sense also came before the Declaration of Independence. And the Continental Congress’s bill of May 10, 1776 and John Adam’s Preamble of May 15 telling the colonial government’s to form their own governments outside of British jurisdiction and to resist British control (in effect, a declaration of independence).

        I agree that both are important. But declarations of independence are common. The Constitution is unique in the history of the world.

      • The spirit of the post is that it recognizes the distance the founders and peoples they represented would go to back it up. This particular Declaration was definitely not common. I believe some of the colonies already had their own constitutions. We could debate the importance of all the correspondence in relation to each other and come up with the same answers; they are all important. Now the question I have is how are we going to spread the word and actually get this history in the right minds? Minds that have figured out how to get elected but for some reason think that islands in the Pacific can flip over. LOL
