The Simple Miracle of America
Christmas is not about candy canes, Easter is not about chocolate bunnies, and Independence Day is not about hamburgers. Each of these three holidays has been commercialized to the point of obscuring the miracles that each represents. The founding of our nation upon the Judeo-Christian principle that individuals have rights which come from God and not government is the simple miracle of America.
On July 4th, we celebrate our Declaration of Independence – the document which could be considered the true preamble of our U.S. Constitution. It is that spirit which enables freedom and prosperity to grow. Our U.S. Constitution was then drafted for the sole purpose of securing our “unalienable Rights” for future generations; spelling out exactly what government can and can not do. With our President, Congress, and Supreme Court blatantly ignoring most of those limitations, “We The People” now have less independence, less freedom, and less prosperity to commemorate.
The critical issues which are tearing apart the social fabric of America, endangering our national security, and bankrupting the American people, can be resolved quickly if all three branches of government will only obey the U.S. Constitution. If they did so, we would once again have sound money without inflation, no national debt, less meddling in foreign nations, our troops home to secure our own borders and ports, far less burdensome regulations on businesses, jobs and prosperity, energy self-sufficiency, individual liberty, personal privacy – and more.
Thomas Jefferson wrote:
Can the liberties of a nation be sure when we remove their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of people, that these liberties are a gift from God?
Have we cast off the faith of our founding fathers and forgotten how their sacrifices and His Divine intervention gave us the greatest form of government the world has ever seen?
This July 4th, before you take that first bite of hamburger, consider taking a moment to reverently read to your loved ones this small portion from the Declaration:
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 to secure these rights, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
We have a responsibility to our children and grandchildren to return to America’s bedrock belief, reclaim our U.S. Constitution, and restore personal liberty.
May God continue to bless America.
