The Ethical Basis for Our Cause is Clear.  Do We Have the Courage?

Back 250 years ago the Founding Fathers laid out in the Declaration of Independence why they were casting off their allegiance to King George of England.   I could copy the whole thing here but that’s unnecessary.  What is interesting is to see just how many of the complaints have analogs in our present situation.  Let’s start with the first cause, the first paragraph.

  • 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.
    1. So, we believe that all men are equal. Our opponents believe that people must be treated differently based on the color of their skin.
    2. We enshrined these unalienable rights in the Bill of Rights. Our opponents trample on those rights without regret.
  • That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
    1. It says that power is derived from the consent of the governed. When elections are fraudulently held there can be no talk of consent.
    2. And it says when government becomes destructive of these rights, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it. That seems very clear.
  • But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
    1. This one exists now verbatim.

Okay that’s enough.  Only a fool can ignore the fact that we are in the same moral situation that the Founding Fathers were with Great Britain.  The only difference is one of will.  The colonists were brave and daring men who were used to fighting wars against other Europeans and the Indian tribes.  We have become accustomed to luxury and ease.  The wars we fight are fought by a small group of volunteers.  And the majority of American citizens are women, something that was unheard of during the Revolutionary War.  And women tend to be uneasy about confrontation and violence.

So that’s where we are.  When this country was young the men living here wouldn’t allow themselves to be bullied by tyrants.  Today the women and the men who emulate them are too cowed to so much as defend themselves when the government sponsored mobs burn down their businesses and assault them in the street of their major cities.  They’re even afraid to demand that the teachers that they pay to teach their children either do it or stop getting paid.  Hell, they’re too scared to even go to Thanksgiving dinner with their families for fear of being ratted out to the police by Karen next door.

Really the only question is how long will it take to find out if we truly are just slaves of the Left.  Here’s a fair test.  If you can’t get together with your family on the Fourth of July then just take your flag down and reverently burn it.  The country will be officially dead.  At that point look for a better place to live.

Well courage is a rare commodity. We simply do not know if we have to the capacity to enact courage. As we have all been exposed to modern ideas that pervert such values.
When pressed do we succumb ?
Or do we prevail, throwing off our comfort to fight for what we hold dear?
As I age my body is weak, but my values become clearer. Perhaps courage will
Return as weakness slowly erodes our physical strength.
I for one will not give up.
Dam the torpedoes! Full speed ahead.
