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.
When you have government providing for your every need there will come a time when those in control of government will decide what you deserve and need.
When you have government regulating all activities there will come a time when those in control of government will decide what is best for you to be happy.
The founding fathers of the United States wrote our constitution to protect us from government controlling our lives. They knew very well because of King George's example what it meant to have government trying to control every aspect of our lives.
They knew that government involvement in our every day lives would mean a reduction of LIFE, limitations on LIBERTY and a restriction on the PURSUIT of HAPPINESS.
I have a question for you: What part of your life, your liberty and your happiness are you willing to let government decide is best for you?
236 years ago the 13 colonies fought a war for freedom from a repressive government. 150 years ago a great war was fought in our country. It was a war all about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It was a war to hold this country together and resulted in the releasing of a people from slavery. Now 150 years later we are faced with a new war. It is a war for the heart and soul of free people. This coming fall an election will take place that could be the most important election ever held. In this election we will make the decision to either remain a free people or to become enslaved to a new and more powerful repressive government.
As a Christian my first pledge is to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ but a part of that pledge is to seek justice and liberty for the repressed. I am not ashamed to admit I am a conservative and that I will vote for the conservative candidate. As a conservative I am for less government control and more personal responsibility.
The reality is no human government is or will be perfect. It will always be flawed by the fact that it is a government of fallen human beings. The only government offering true Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness is the one that our Creator is King of.
The purpose of this post is to get you to think about your own thoughts about Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Your idea may not be like mine but I hope you will take the time to really think how much you want another person deciding those three things for you.
