Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

The Real Declaration of Independence Pertains Today As It Did In 1776

I don’t believe I’ve ever read the Declaration of Independence much beyond the famous words at its beginning, such words as “When in the course of human events” and “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal” and “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.

These are emotional and persuasive words and expressions, but when one reads deeper into the text one sees words and phrases, used to explain why the colonists broke away from the King of England over 200 years ago, that caused me to realize that these words explain exactly why Americans want to be free of Barack Obama’s oppressive administration and his political mafia in our current times.

Words like “he has refused to assent to laws”, or “he has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance”.  Or consider the words “he has obstructed the administration of justice”.  Or “he has erected a multitude of new offices”.  Or “he has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution”. Or ”for imposing taxes on us without our consent”.  Or “he has excited domestic insurrection against us”.  Each of these quotes expresses our current feeling of threat and oppression at the hands of our government under the current, radical leftist regime.

And then finally the Declaration of Independence states” We, therefore… do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these (states) solemnly publish and declare, that these United (States) are, and of right ought to be free and independent states”.

I believe that these rather ancient words by our founding fathers, though made a long time ago, perfectly and accurately describe our attitude and frustration today.  I have only one question:  How did the United States of America, with our excellent Declaration of Independence and our wonderful Constitution, reach our current desperate state of oppression at the hands of our own government?  We should be ashamed of ourselves for allowing it to happen.  But we should also make certain that this oppression ends and that it never be allowed to happen again, for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
