We Hold These Truths to be Self-Evident

Words matter. Words can have a powerful impact. And few words have effected our world the way our Declaration of Independence has.

”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”

These words inspired our country to seek Independence. They inspired slaves to seek equal treatment under the law. They continue to inspire people throughout the world to seek for rights given to them by God and not alloted to them by government.

May I also suggest something else that is self-evident? We hold these truths to be self-evident that corporations do not have rights endowed to them by God. That these are legal entities endowed by us as a people with rights. Corporations do not stand equal with men in the eyes of God nor should they have constitutional rights equal to men. It is also self-evident that if corporations are given rights equal to men that they become our master and we become thier slave. Because in addition to having been granted constitutional rights corporations have the advantages of infinite life, international existence, and a collective of individuals. All of these advantages give corporations extra-constitutional rights over We as a People.

Words matter and can have a powerful impact. And we weaken the words of our Declaration of Independence and of our Constitution when we “shoehorn” in rights for corporations that exist only for us as people.

For these simple reasons it is self-evident that we must move to amend our Constitution so that it’s rights are made to apply strictly to us. Strenthening our Constitution to protect our God given rights that apply to nothing else but We The People. This is a cause that is important to all Americans but ought to be particularly important to Conservatives and those who call themselves “Strict Constitutionalists”. Oddly and ironically it is this group that seems to be asleep regarding this issue.

Please but particularly Conservatives please become a part of the Move to Amend effort at http://movetoamend.org. And tell your Congressmen and senators particularly your Conservative congressmen and Senators to do likewise.

    This administration, republicans and democrats alike are ignoring the declaration of independence, constitution, and the bill of rights. I wish more people would wake up and realize that both major parties are destroying the country.

    A number of issues seem to call for amendments, but nothing happens. Wonder why?

    They are not self evident to liberal progressives.

    Liberal progressives believe that our rights come from government.
