Declaration of Independence

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. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

The Divinely Inspired Constitution (Part 3)

I am a firm believer that America is a promised land, which was divinely preserved and protected until the United States of America could be established. I firmly believe that God helped the colonists to become victorious over a larger, better trained, and better equipped British army. I also firmly believe that God raised up men and prepared them for the awesome task of writing the United States Constitution.
So, we have this marvelous, divinely-inspired Constitution with its checks and balances, separations of power, and other constitutional limitations. What is our responsibility as citizens of such a nation?
I believe that our first responsibility is to know what is contained in our Constitution. Since it is difficult to study a document until we have it, has made available to anyone all of our important national documents. Go to and print off a copy of the United States Constitution and start reading and studying it.
The second most important thing that all citizens should do is to preserve, protect, and sustain the supreme law of the land, which is our Constitution. We can do this best by being the kind of people that deserve a divinely-inspired Constitution. We must be obedient and moral people. attributes the following quote to John Adams, the second president of the United States, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
Third, citizens must be involved in the affairs of our nation. The best way to keep our constitutional way of life is to maintain a constant vigilance over those we have elected to represent us and our best interests. We need to watch with our eyes wide open, listen carefully, and even read between the lines in order to discern any corruption creeping into our government.
Fourth, citizens must actively search out good and wise man and women to be our elected leaders. Then we must support them but keep them honest in their duties.
Fifth, citizens must study the issues, ask the important questions, get the necessary answers, and know what the real issues are.
Sixth, citizens must actually go to the polls and vote. Unless good, honest, law-abiding people are making their voices heard, corrupt individuals will be elected.
Yes, we have inherited a democratic republic with a divinely-inspired Constitution. It is now our responsibility to hold onto it!
