this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
– Gettysburg Address
If our government was functioning as Lincoln described, it would be nothing our current government. There would be no EPA wrecking our energy security and polluting our rivers. There would be no Obamacare stealing our money. There would be no IRS stealing our money. 99.9% of our laws would not exist.
Our government is corrupt to its very core, and controlled by special interests. Which leads us back to the Declaration of Independence.
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.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of
Great BritainKenya is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
