The Declaration Of Independence
“a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.”
With these words, members of the Second Continental Congress began to declare the causes which impelled them to pursue separation from England. And independence as a sovereign nation – a union of 13 separate states.
“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.’
“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 . . . ‘
Today America has a president who derives power Not by consent of the governed, but only by consent of a handful of men and women who empower him.
This president and the administration he leads have
- undermined the Constitution of the United States,
- weakened the standing of the United States on the world stage,
- weakened the national security of the country,
- perpetrated a reign of inhumane cruelty against asylum seekers, and against women,
- and have caused artificial divisions among the people.
We The People of These United States need to do better. We cannot exactly “dissolve the political bands which have connected us” with the party of Trump. We cannot separate geographically from them. Above all we cannot – CANNOT under any circumstance – threaten any form of violence against anybody.
But we must, as Americans, declare our Independence from the powers that are destroying our country and taking away our freedoms.
I don’t know. But I believe we can start by uniting under one banner that is neither Republican nor Democratic. The National Union Party – the party of Lincoln – is now forming for Americans who have had enough of disunity and the harm that it does.
