Constitution Party of
Government is instituted among men to PROTECT THE GOD-GIVEN RIGHT TO
LIFE, LIBERTY, and THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS (THROUGH THE OWNERSHIP OF
PRIVATE PROPERTY). And to these ends the Constitution Party of Texas exists
and will serve the People of Texas.
The spiritual foundation for The United States of America was established
with the "Declaration of Independence". Every triumph, every instance of
legitimate victory or glory, every act whereby this nation inspired its own
people or the people of the world can be traced to the principles
espoused in the Declaration of July 4th, A.D. 1776.
So long as America embraced those simple and profound principles, we were a
nation on the rise. Insofar as we've abandoned or forgotten those
principles, we have become a nation that is declining and may even be in
danger of self-destruction.
But who knows what those foundation principles are? What grade
school or high school in these United States teaches students to understand
the "Declaration of Independence"? I've yet to hear of one.
Every 4th of July Americans celebrate our biggest, uniquely-American
holiday by playing baseball, swimming, grilling hamburgers and steaks, and
watching parades and fireworks. But only a handful of Americans
understand what is actually being celebrated.
Many suppose that the 4th of July holiday commemorates our final victory
over the British in the American Revolution. Others believe the 4th of
July commemorates a particular battle during that War for Independence.
Only a few understand that the 4th of July celebrates, not the end of the
American Revolution, but the beginning; not an important victory, but a
revolutionary set of spiritual principles that had been unknown to the
Western World since at least the time of Judges in the Old Testament.
Consider: You have probably attended a 4th of July celebration for
every year since you were born. Even when you were a one-year old
infant, your parents probably took you to see the parade. But can you
recall even one 4th of July celebration where anyone bothered to read or
explain the political and spiritual principles first declared in A.D.
I'll bet you can't. I'll bet you don't know anyone who has attended a
single 4th of July celebration in 40 years where the principles of that
Declaration were even mentioned, let alone explained.
If you stop think about it, you might ask Why hasn't anyone in government
or public education taught or extolled the virtues and principles of the
"Declaration of Independence" in your lifetime? Have the
principles on which this nation was conceived become so politically incorrect
as to be hidden and unmentioned? And if so, why?
The answer is that our government doesn't want you to know those
principles are because 1) those principles lay the foundation for genuine
freedom; and 2) our government is now dedicated to ruling the American people
as subjects rather than serving the American people as
Why does government hide the principles of the Declaration of
Independence? Because once you really understand the simple principles
on which this nation was founded, you'll understand that our government has
betrayed the American dream. Once you understand that there is no lawful
basis for government to abandon those principles, you will understand that our
government has intentionally betrayed and denied the fundamental principles of
equality, freedom and God's sovereignty on which this nation was conceived.
That betrayal is wicked in that it's not merely an abandonment of political
principles--it's an abandonment of this nation's foundation spiritual
And if government doesn't want you to understand those principles, any
reasonable man or woman who would truly be free should agree that learning
those principles is vital to their individual freedoms and restoring a
The Declaration was written over two centuries ago. As a result, the
language is a little stilted, a little archaic by today's standards.
Nevertheless, the fundamental principles are not obscure, ambiguous or
difficult to comprehend.
The Declaration's second sentence is the most important. It
"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."
At first reading, that sentence and first principle may seem unremarkable
but is arguably the single, most radical political statement in the last twenty centuries.
However, the heart and principle of the sentence is simple:
Each and every living man and woman is individually and equally endowed
by God with certain rights.
The third sentence of the Declaration declares:
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men
deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
And therein we find the Declaration's second basic principle:
The primary duty of government is to secure to each man and woman
their God-given, unalienable Rights.
(Incidentally, how can a government that insists on the "separation of
church and state" perform the primary duty of securing to each man his
God-given, unalienable Rights? I.e., how can a government that denies
the political influence and sovereignty of God also secure the
unalienable rights for which God is the source?)
The third principle is found in the fourth and sixth sentences of the
Declaration which read:
"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destruction 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. . . . 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."
Where the fourth sentence reads, "That whenever any Form of Government
becomes destructive of these ends," the words "these ends" refer to the
purposes of government as declared or implied in the first two principles: 1)
recognize as self-evident that all men are endowed by God with certain
"unalienable Rights"; and 2) secure those God-given rights.
Thus, the third principle of the Declaration is:
It is the right and duty of the people to "throw off" any
government that refuses to recognize and secure each man's God-given,
And to whom do we owe that duty? To our fellow man? To our
nation? Or to God, Himself?
I believe the answer is God. I believe that "resistance to tyranny is
service to God."
