"The power elite don't give a damn about you"

Why We Celebrate July 4th
by Tim Wingate

Attribute to The Libertarian Enterprise

In 1776, fifty-six men signed the Declaration of Independence declaring that,

"We hold these truths to be self-evident. . ."

What truths were "these truths"?

The 5 Truths

The whole of the Declaration of Independence and the instituted governments of the United States of America rest upon these 5 Truths.

The signers of the Declaration of Independence believed that those who supported these 5 Truths were good people and supporters of freedom.

However, those who opposed the 5 Truths were against liberty as agents of dictators, tyrants and despots.

Which one are you?
Do you believe in the 5 Truths?

Truth 1. All people are created equal by "Nature's God." (No commentary was given about the nature of, or, who "Nature's God" was believed to be. However, it can be inferred that the implication was from a general "Christianized" worldview.)

Truth 2. All created equal people are endowed with certain unalienable right

Truth 3. By the consent of the equal people with endowed certain unalienable rights, governments are formed to secure those endowed certain unalienable rights of the equal people.

Truth 4. When any form of government becomes destructive of those endowed certain unalienable rights of the equal people, it is the right and duty of the equal people with endowed certain unalienable rights to replace that government with one that will secure those, endowed certain unalienable rights of the equal people.

Truth 5. Changes of government should not be for casual and changing reasons, therefore, the equal people with endowed certain unalienable rights must declare the causes that make them change governments.

Make no mistake in thinking that this is a light matter. We as a nation are approaching a fork in the road together.

There are those among us who believe that "government" is the source of rights and liberty. They are the modern day Tories, the royalists, and believers in the divine rights of kings. Only today their "king" is the Government.

We have almost come full circle in our experiment in liberty from where we started.

From:an out of control constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary government that reduced its loyal citizens to property of the State,

a constitutional representative government that distorts words and meanings in the Constitution thereby reducing the people to property of the State.

True American Patriots still believe in the 5Truths of Freedom

  • To embrace these truths by believing in them and living by them is to be an American patriot, honoring the men and women who fought and died for liberty.

  • To infringe or alienate these truths by action or accepting government's actions is to dishonor the patriots who have lived and died for us.

On which side do you stand?

    (a)The promise of tranquil security by intrusive government, mouthing words of liberty while taking away rights by regulation forcing you to give up your "fair share" of freedom for privileged benefits that rest upon you as chains of control?

    (b)The 5Truths and the certain human rights endowed to an equal people that must not be infringed by your countrymen in your service in government leaving you to live the "animating contest of freedom" in liberty while pursuing the happiness of responsible self-ownership?

If you believe in the 5Truths then generate interest in the 5Truths. Tell others about the 5Truths. Compare our government today to the 5Truths. Use the Roman numeral V for 5 or Victory or Vendetta. Greet one another by flashing the "old" peace sign that is a "V" or a wide open hand with 5 fingers spread wide! Show others the "secret sign" <wink> of 5. The resistance has begun. Join the Resistance.
