It’s time once again to celebrate our nation’s birth with a reminder to read the Declaration of Independence.
If you spend any amount of time searching for great deals on summer items at the much-hyped Fourth of July sales, you have the time to put yourself back in time when, after decades of abuse, the American colonies proclaimed that they would govern themselves, drawing from the consent of the governed.
The document itself is not that long, but it can be tedious document for some to read, what with all the arcane language. It should be noted, however, that if you tried to read any of the bills Congress has foisted upon us in modern times, the Declaration is at least self-explanatory and instructive.
Some of the great things about reading the Declaration is that every word has such definable meaning, each sentence is carefully constructed, and the manner in which the Founders communicate independence is backed up by a long list of “Facts” to be “submitted to a candid world.”
I’m told the legal term for this list is a “bill of particulars,” in which perhaps a prosecutor would lay out a case against someone charged with a crime or crimes, but that’s neither here nor there as long as you know when you read the list, it backs up the case for independence.
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people …”
You don’t have to read long into the Declaration for your mind to worry about what we’ve become. Are we “one people?” Shall we dissolve “political bands?” Do we believe in “unalienable Rights?” Has government become so far off and detached from the people that it can’t possibly “derive their just powers from the consent of the governed?”
Isn’t what the Left is doing when they act on anything a direct repudiation of everything in that document? Yes, I believe so, and it has Americans hopping mad.
Yet, when you read the list of grievances, you come to realize just how bad it was for the colonies in 1776. The Brits allied with murderous natives who wiped out entire families. At the time of the signing, the colonists and the British had been in open war for over a year, Bunker Hill had been fought, and some great men had died. British soldiers were on the streets and demanded property from the colonists, women were raped, and the King was taking away any rights of the colonists to have representation in Parliament. The colonists were far, far beyond any reason anymore. They had to either fight for independence, or be slaves to a distant government who abused them and had no respect for human life.
The enemy of the American Patriot is the American Left. They fight for the murder of the innocent, they offer tolerance to the enemy, they destroy every possible pursuit of happiness, they conjure crisis after crisis to reconcile takings of liberty, they relax law and order so street thugs can destroy whole cities, and they take the future away from our children by spending and use their positions in education to destroy their ability to reason.
So, who really stands with the American Patriot? It certainly isn’t the Democratic Party. And while conservatives get thrashed over trashing Republicans, the truth is right now, the Republican Party is held in contempt by the American Patriot because they were put in charge to oppose the Democrats and they instead, went along with them. Republicans have spent numerous recent elections saying, “Hey, at least we aren’t as bad as the Democrats!” And because of that, we have a presumptive nominee who is actually a Democrat.
But with zero intention of making light of the powerful rebuke that the Declaration of Independence was of government tyranny back in 1776, there may be a festering bill of particulars against the leadership of the Republican Party, and how their actions have quite possibly ensured decades of Leftist rule in America.
They have fused their power with their friends across the aisle for their own personal ambition.
They have squandered gains in the House brought to them by the people, and openly mocked their base.
They have pretended at opposition to the fundamental transformation of America, implementing each and every insult to the detriment of the people.
They have given lip service to the United States Constitution, refusing to restore the balance of power among the branches.
They have made solidarity with the Chamber of Commerce whose mission is to create a permanent underclass of cheap labor.
They have silenced conservatives within the party, going so far as to defeat them in general elections by standing by Democrats.
They have increased the debt exponentially upon the president’s orders.
They deal with swarms of lobbyists to fuse government and business, destroying the American entrepreneur.
They have surrendered the treaty power.
They have surrendered the power of the purse.
They have openly described their tactics as show-votes for the praise of their constituents.
They have refused to fight the nationalization of healthcare, and have embraced it.
They refuse to fight for the Right to Life and by doing so, insured the Democratic upper hand on the issue, insuring more death of innocent lives.
They have acquiesced to the president’s illegitimate amnesty decree, thwarting the rule of law.
They have repeatedly tried, void of the consent of the governed, to impose amnesty and give up security on our borders.
They have guilted the base into giving them more power, yet continued to work against the powers of the constitution.
They have made a charade of the election process, promising to stay in line with conservative America to get elected, then abandoning all pretense of servitude once elected.
They have lost all principle to the overwhelming attraction of raw power, and have a delusional belief in their own lies.
They will not hold the president and his overreaching administration accountable and rebuke those who will.
They have redefined the meaning of the word, “compromise” to mean “surrender.”
They have high praise for Democrat lawmakers and scorn for conservative challengers.
They accept the language of the Left and embrace the demolition of the Second Amendment.
They have made a mockery of Congress by refusing to gather sufficient political capital for impeachment.
They have dragged their feet on the Benghazi investigation, and when finally called on a special committee, have allowed the administration to circle the wagons.
They have given decreased our military at a time when warring nations see us as weak.
They rail against conservatives who reach an audience unafraid to take part in their own civics, because information has become their greatest enemy.
They have saved their most vitriolic and vengeful political rhetoric for conservative challengers, and would never dream of treating the Democrats that way.
They have offered up our daughters to fight the enemy in case of draft.
I’m sure many could add to this list, and expand on the fact that GOP leadership will pay zero attention to the reasons why the party is in its death throes. What will become of the organization is anyone’s guess, but the way it is set up right now is playing into the hands of the enemies of America, and it has to stop.
We, therefore, the base of the crumbling Republican Party, the true defenders of the great United States of America, its lifeblood and its soul, solemnly publish and declare that a complete destruction of the Republican Party by the foolishness of their own actions culminating in the nomination of a Democrat, is fully the fault of the leadership, and is what they have strived for ever since the American public woke up to the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.
