"If men through fear, fraud or mistake, should in terms renounce and give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the great end of society, would absolutely vacate such renunciation; the right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of Man to alienate this gift, and voluntarily become a slave."
--John Adams, Rights of the Colonists, 1772
I believe John Adams was on to something here. When we give up our faith in God and put it in the hands of man, we get what we have today in our own country right know. When the Constitution was written our forefathers knew this would be the result of looking to Government and not God.
"We The People", not "we under Government control hold the people." Words have power and the power was given to the People, not the Government. As we have seen over the last 100 years or so the more we ask the Government to do for us the more we lose power in our own lives.
If we do not stand up and say.No (correct that), yell that we have had enough, this snow balling power grab will go on until one day we wake up and are being asked for our papers as we go to the store, out of state to other states, arrested for speaking out against the President and Government.
Look at what is happening over in Europe as they watch us become more and more liberal they are becoming more and more conservative. They know if we continue down this path they will no longer be able to call on us to protect them from attacks of all sorts. Our military will fall apart, our economy will fall apart, and as things stand today China will have ownership of us in total.
Find God again America, and find that "Shining City on the Hill" again. We can be great again.
