Saving Freedom

I am reading Jim DeMint's new book "Saving Freedom." I would encourage everyone who cares about liberty and their personal unalienable rights to freedom to read this book. If you have not read the "Declaration of Independence" in a while, I would encourage you to read that as well.

"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 to 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 shown 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."

233 years have passed and I honestly feel that we are close to where it all began. We need to dust off the "Declaration of Independence and reissue it to our destructive and counter productive governments. We need to abolish our current rule, the new royalty. We should institute a new government by dusting off the Constitution and reinstating it in it's original form, not the trumped up interpretation we have today.

Dolley, I am with you 100%. Read "Saving Freedom." Jim DeMint does an excellent job of explaining how we have gotten where we are, logically and straight forward. At least South Carolina can claim one politician worthy of some praise.
