“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.”
Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776
ime for a revolution? I have never seen such a concerted effort to remove liberties from the American people as we are seeing from our president and congress right now. It is quite clear that the president has turned his back on his oath to defend and uphold the Constitution.
Thomas Jefferson once said, every generation needs its own revolution. He, better than any of our other founding fathers, understood the tendency for governments to get out of control and turn to tyranny. Our nation has seen generation after generation come and go and, thanks to the clear thinking of our founders, it took quite a while to fall into the danger of rank tyranny we are now facing. But... here we are.
Perhaps it’s time for a revolution.
