the premise of self government

The Premise of Self Government

            If we are to “work together” then we must have a premise upon which we all agree.

            This premise is the definition of Self Government.

            We have all heard the phrase,  “A government by the People, for the People.”  Today, we are facing the reality that our country is no longer this ideal.

            In the history of this world, mankind has established a multitude of governments that pitted one group against another. Weary of the abuse of  “man’s” government, a group of people united in this land over 200 years ago and declared a Law that was above man’s law; that the Creator has endowed EACH person with unalienable rights.

Self Government is founded upon the concept that the individual has “certain unalienable rights.”  To embrace this concept of unalienable rights, we must first acknowledge a Law that is higher than “man’s law”.

This has nothing to do with religion.  I care not if you profess a Christian, Muslim, Hindu or any other faith.  I do care if you are an atheist and thereby refuse to acknowledge that a Creator set forth the Natural Law that we are all subject to.

For Christians, the foundation of Natural Law is explained in a simple phrase,
“Love the Lord your God with all your might, and love your neighbor as yourself; upon
this rests the entire Law.”

To “love the Lord your God” is to be humble and to accept that this world has been created with certain requirements that you must abide by.  For instance, you accept the Law of the Creator by not jumping into a lake and trying to breath water.  You accept the law of the Creator by breathing air.

By the very fact that we are alive, we have consciously accepted that there are certain laws of the Creator that we must abide by.

Now, whether we can be a self governed people hinges upon understanding our “unalienable rights” and our responsibilities.

“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.”

Each person has freedom of choice.  How we exercise this freedom of choice determines whether we can be a self governed people.

“Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Assertion of my rights can never be used to take the rights from another.

I cannot steal from another person because it makes me happy.  I cannot force another from their home because I do not like their race or religion.  Self government depends upon all of us respecting each other’s rights.

Self government requires that when one person’s rights have been violated, there must be redress for that right being violated, and that, as a group, we demand justice.  This is really easy to comprehend when you look at the Law concerning murder.  One of our neighbors was killed; we, as a group, demand redress (justice) because our neighbor’s unalienable right to life was violated.

Our entire proclamation of  “self government” depends upon each and every Citizen defending the rights of our individual Citizens.  But, instead of working towards solutions, we divide into private groups and blame others for the woes we have brought upon ourselves.....

“The Capitalist White controlled Corporations are destroying us.” “The Blacks are a bunch of low-life’s that live on welfare.” “Asian gangs are taking over the streets.”  “The Jews are in control of our money”.

People grow up. We are destroying our own country. We can no longer divide ourselves into “special interest groups”, economic classes, races and religions.

Either we come together in defense of each other, or we submit to the rhetoric of the elitists that we are incapable to govern ourselves. Understand this one truth: You have no rights if your neighbor has been denied his/her rights.

The machine to reduce us to mere animals void of unalienable rights is already in place and gaining strength.  The machine is our own government, which we have allowed, because we have been so busy fighting each other.
Our currency is controlled by a private bank, and not by the People.  We as a country owe more than we have assets to pay. With the baby boomers retiring, we do not have enough money to pay their social security benefits. We no longer have a manufacturing base. Foreclosures are at record highs, and more are coming. Our constitutions have been “suspended” because of the War on Drugs and the War on Terrorism.

Do YOU believe that YOU have unalienable rights?  The only way that you can keep these rights is if we, as a People are self governed.

The only way we can be self governed is if we defend each other’s rights.  Today, we are NOT self governed.

This is the premise that must be agreed upon:

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
…and that anyone that comes against the unalienable Rights of any person will feel the force of the People.”

Decide. Now. You have the freedom to choose.
Fight for my rights as I fight for yours.

Or, maybe the elitists are correct,
and we are simply too stupid and too lazy to be self governed.
