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.

Liberty and Socialism

                The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday concerns liberty and socialism and the simple fact that there is no liberty where socialism reigns. I am deeply involved in family business, but I want to make sure that my readers see this article by Matt Kibbe titled “Liberty rocks, socialism kills.” 

                Kibbe begins, “Today’s current political atmosphere is more polarizing than ever, leaving many voters – particularly millennials and first-time voters – feeling alienated and disenfranchised. It is times like this when we must reflect on what made America great in the first place and try to revert back to our founding principles. America was not built on the idea of free stuff, but rather the freedom to be left alone – the ability to say what’s on your mind, to practice a religion of your choice, to thrive economically. This freedom to live our lives the way we choose is being threatened by socialist policies and an overzealous federal government.
                “If we want to continue to be the greatest country in modern history and a beacon of hope for the rest of the world, we must protect these freedoms. Only by protecting personal, civil, and economic liberties, can we truly maintain our influence in the world.”

                The article continues by explaining why we need to protect our liberties and regain our influence in the world. I found it to be an interesting article and encourage you to read it.
