Pay attention


On July 4th, 1776 our forefathers unanimously declared that.. “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands whic have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

That is the very first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence. Why aren’t we taught that first paragraph? It goes on to what we all know ….. “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.”

I’m sure you all know the rest, and if you don’t, please do your research online … it’s all there today. It may be gone tomorrow. And while you’re researching the Declaration, why don’t you look up the 25th amendment to our Constitution? Not only will we lose these unalienable rights if We the People don’t exercise them, we will lose this whole nation to socialism and communism.

If we don’t learn from our history, we are doomed to repeat it.

Please, pay attention!
