Happy Independence Day to Americans and to the world. Praise the Lord for the USA and to God be the glory for the forming of this nation. Thank you to those that have fought, and are fighting for our liberties, and America, so we can remain safe in our beautiful country. America, do you know that your freedoms stand as a bastion against the tyrants, the oppressors, the godless leaders of this world in the natural and the spiritual. America was founded as one nation under God. Indeed, we pledge it,
“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” (1).
If we stand as a bastion of freedom, we must stand firm in the foundation of the founding documents. Already our American government no longer acknowledges the Declaration of Independence as a legal document, you know the document that the fourth of July is about, that was our birth of the United States. “Unlike the other founding documents, the Declaration of Independence is not legally binding, but it is powerful.” (2). This is ludicrous if the Declaration of Independence is not legally binding that means we are still under Britain’s control, which we are not. I believe the reason they took off this founding document as legally binding, is for fear of revolution. Why would they fear revolution? Surely those in power do not plan on usurping our rights and oppressing us? If they do, they should fear the American people, for we still hold the right of revolution if those in power break the covenant of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. As the Declaration of Independence gives us that right. It should be said I am not saying a revolution is needed, for we are not under that type of tyranny at the moment, but if a time comes, where any government oppresses the people and breaks the covenant, the people hold the right of revolution. So, the government must fear the people, to stay in their boundaries of power. In order to keep liberty.
Our country is the forefront of freedom and liberty, if they take down what we stand for they affect every country where citizens believe in unalienable rights. China oppresses the citizens of Hong Kong yet the citizens of Hong Kong raised the red, white and blue (3). This shows the foundation in America of liberty is contagious, and bypasses culture, language, race, religion, gender, or anything else to ingrain into the hearts of people. Which is due to it the unalienable rights, and all men being equal coming from God. Let us my friends remember what the fourth of July is, the day the declaration of independence was DECLARED to tyrants.
“The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.” (4)
What beauty may every person, may all mankind, stand up for the liberty they are given. Reality of unalienable rights does not change whether a government acknowledges them. The American revolution sparked a changed, that infected the whole world with the understanding of liberty and justice for all (2). With God being the giver of these rights, and liberty, it is no wonder we started as a nation under God.
“One nation under God” this is our protection, our commitment with God so to speak. It was this precept that formed our country on Judeo-Christian values that formed our government and made us a land of opportunity with “liberty and justice for all.” Liberty and justice for all people only comes when we have righteous leaders in government and now the government stinks of corruption and greed. The Bible states,
“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”
Today is Independence Day which stands for our freedom from a tyrannical king and his underlings. Now we have snakes in our midst who are eroding our freedoms with the flick of pen.
If America does not stand for freedom, what will the peoples of the world do?
“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
God bless America. Here is a song that reminds us of the beauty of America.
