The Genius Of The Declaration Of Independence... the underpinings of our liberty

The Declaration of Independence (DOI) is much more than a list of grievances, a theatrical recitation of the causes for casting off the tyrant in England.

The Declaration of Independence established certain Truths as self-evident: That mankind is endowed by their Creator with certain 'Unalienable Rights'. The DOI embodies the fundamental precepts, upon which our nation was founded, and from which sprang the genius of our Constitution. It uniquely advanced the idea that government was the servant of the People. 

The Declaration of Independence not only lists the CAUSES compelling the Colonies to separate from England... it transcribed and fixed the fundamental right of mankind to live free, bound only by the self-evident law of his Creator. It declared that Governments are formed to secure the Rights of  man, not the rights of Kings alone.

The Declaration of Independence is much more than a theatrical rendition of injustice... It is a document, unique in its purpose. It establishes the right of the People to CONSENT to be governed, an unheard of right, in those days.  It suborned the power of Kings, and reduced the place of government from master to servant. Never so bold a concept sprang forth with such clarity as it did in the DOI.

Those who ignorantly dismiss the 'Declaration of Independence' as Theater... also, fail to understand the underpinnings of our Constitution.  The Constitution must be interpreted in the Spirit of the DOI, with the same insight and motivation, as our founders wrote our founding documents.  The essence of the DOI is not in the letter but in the Spirit of its construction. This is what makes it such a moving and powerful document, with relevance even to this very day.

Those who attempt to INTERPRET the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution it inspired, without the Spirit of the Creator, can not possibly come to a proper rendering of there meaning.  Our Constitution and the Declaration of Independence are inspired works. They are not merely the penmanship of man.  It therefore, takes inspired men to properly interpret them.

I suggest those who study the DOI... focus not only on the grievances listed, but on the profound brake with the prominent theories for governing in those times: That all men are created equal and have certain unalienable rights; that governments are created to serve the people, too guarantee the rights of the common man, not Kings alone; that God endowed mankind with certain rights, and no man may take them from another.  These concepts were profound precepts in there day and the DOI uniquely expresses them, in terms that can not be denied.

The Declaration of Independence is unique in the annals of Nations.... its relevance and importance to the governance of mankind remain valid unto this very day. America and American's can be proud of their heritage and the wisdom of our founders; whose, indomitable spirit lives on in the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution.

The DOI is much more than a declaration of war and a list of abuses.  It embodies our Creators purpose for government and the rights of man to  live free of despots. It inculcates the precepts and fundamentals for self-governance... acknowledging the equality of men before our Creator... and their right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness... as the product of God's benevolence and not the hands of Kings or the will of man.

Those who don't see the Spirit in the DOI... who are not imbued by its power fail to understand the very essence which drove our founders to brake with the King of England.  They fail to fathom the richness of our heritage and the vision contained in the DOI.   Our Nation is failing for a lack of discernment and understanding... not of the world, but of the Spirit behind our creation, and this Nations purpose in the Earth.

We are a light in a dark world... A beacon of liberty, in a sea of bondage; a City placed upon a hill, that the oppressed in the world may see the beauty of our Creators purpose for mankind. We are that light which comes from above, not from man.  A light to draw all men to the Creator of our liberty; too, the promise of peace in our time, and life eternal beyond this world.

That light does now grow faint... for the lack of vision and knowledge, our people suffer and are dying. Let us pray, that the light of God may once more fill our homes and our nations high places; that, we may once more find the inspiration of our founders; too, brace against the evils of this world and embrace our lost brothers and sisters, with the vision of our founding fathers: Whose Creator endowed us with the unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness... all of which emanates from the Spirit of the DOI.

The DOI and Constitution introduced a new concept for government... Rather than, the people serving the government, good Governments are established to serve the people. They operate with the clear support and consent of the Governed.  Today, our government is operating to serve the interest of a very narrow elite.  They no longer serve with the consent of the governed.  Polls and elections results don't agree... with less than 10% approving of Congress and 40% approving of the Administration, the clear consent to be governed is not there any longer... and hasn't been for several decades.

The consent to be governed... by the current set of political hacks, in power, is not there. Even with all of the pro-government propaganda, and  the screwy poll numbers, working to persuade the People, they have clearly withdrawn their consent to be governed.  The People now have every right to establish new guards.   In fact, it is their duty to do so, and by whatever means the people deem appropriate, as the electoral system has stopped functioning in the interest  of the People years ago.

We now understand the fundamental ideas just as well as the founders did, and I will claim that what I have been presenting in this series of videos is the result of an even better understanding.

Thanks for your input Anthony...

Our governing documents are inspired. 

Our founding Documents... contain the very essence of God's Spirit ... and with them they secured the liberty of the worlds greatest nation... whose light brought hope to the oppressed around the world. 

We who have been favored by this great experiment and light, owe much to our Creator... let us reflect upon our duty to Him and our progeny, that this light may yet be renewed and burn brightly once more... A guide to the lost, a beacon too the oppressed, a promise fulfilled for generations to come. 

Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.

Blaise Pascal

You mean like Hitler, Stalin or Mao all mass murders... with totals of nearly 100 million.  None of the three largest mass murderers in the modern world were religious men...So, Pascal if he were alive should be embarrassed at his claim.

Oh, I think you can find plenty of religious wars if you chose to look. A few Crusades a few Kings V Popes. A few Catholic V Church of England.

A few Muslim V Hindu a few Buddhist V Confucius and the beat goes on in every time period and ever Continent.

There is some evidence that Hitler worshiped the god Wotan, but I suspect more likely, he, Stalin and Mao all substituted the collective, an invisible super human entity superior to the individual, to which all individuals had to submit, worship, and sacrifice (for the good of the collective).

Let's not mince words... Hitler and all men who don't know the One True God worship themselves... they are at their core HUMANIST. The Humanist practices, Humanism, as a religion; whether, the humanist wants to admit it or not Humanism engages every element of religion in its doctrine or ideology.

Satan is guilty of wanting to be God... by replacing God with himself. The Humanist is guilty of wanting to replace God, with his own being, in his intellect, he is his own god.  The lost man and atheist have gone the way of Lucifer, declaring they are god... thus, deserving worship and adulation as GOD... master of their own destiny. 

Make no mistake, just because one denies that they have an eternal spirit, or refuses to accept Spiritual Law, doesn't mean they are free from the Law of the Spirit. The 'spirit' can not be destroyed. It exists forever, either with or without God.  Our Spirit, like Energy, cannot be destroyed.... it can only be transformed... born again, thru faith in Christ Jesus, our Lord and savior.

Master of my own destiny, yes.  The rest, no.  Of what value to me is worship and adulation as a god?  Absolutely nothing.  Eternal spirit?  Show me where my Dad's spirit went after he died and we had him cremated?  Is he a ghost?  An angel?  I've seen absolutely no evidence.

ALERT ALERT

The Fall Of Fake News!! Quiet Shake-Up At MSNBC After Station Hemorrhages Viewers Following Mueller Debacle 

Reports are surfacing about a quiet shake-up of personnel at MSNBC after the cable news station lost more than 30% of their audience after the Mueller debacle.

Apparently MNSBC doesn’t think their financial woes are newsworthy given that they didn’t run any breathless stories about their own failings.

News of MSNBC’s collapse can’t come as a surprise to insiders who undoubtedly are fully aware that their audience no longer trusts them.

One source familiar told Mediaite the changes came amidst mounting complaints from NBC News chief Andy Lack about a dip in MSNBC’s ratings following the end of the Mueller investigation. In May, ratings for the network in the advertiser coveted 25-54 demo were down 32% year over year.

MSNBC viewers were asked: How much do you agree that MSNBC regularly reports made up or fake news about Donald Trump and his administration?

The responses were devastating! While 35% or respondents agree that MSNBC pushes Fake News, only 24% disagreed. That’s a ratings death sentence!

What do you expect from a channel that boasts disgraced liar, Brian Williams, and race pimp, Al Sharpton?

MAJOR SHAKEUP AT MSNBC - Ratings crater after Mueller Report Debacle! 

MSNBC Shakeup: Jonathan Wald and Dan Arnall Take Dayside

MSNBC quietly implemented a sweeping shakeup in programming this week, Mediaite has learned, appointing SVP of programming and development Jonathan Wald and MSNBC executive editor Dan Arnall to lead...

Flashback: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s Ratings Plummet To Yearly Low

MSNBC primetime host Rachel Maddow brought in her worst weekly ratings of the year last week.

Her show last week averaged 2,324,000 viewers, with an average audience of 337,000 in the 25-54 age demographic, both of which mark yearly lows for the liberal television host, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Maddow first saw a dramatic drop in ratings following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Her previous low for a week in 2019 was the last week in March, the first full week after Mueller submitted his conclusion to Attorney General William Barr, where she averaged 2,458,000 viewers with 392,000 in the demo.

She spent two years dissecting every aspect of the special counsel’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump conspired with the Russians to win the 2016 presidential election. The night Mueller submitted his findings to Barr, Maddow appeared to hold back tears over the fact that neither the president nor any family members were indicted.

Compared to Maddow’s low ratings last week, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, whose program is often the most-watched among all cable news shows, averaged 3,108,000 viewers with just under half-a-million viewers in the key demographic.

She also nearly tripled CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s weekly ratings. His program only had 880,000 viewers with 225,000 in the key demo.
