Remembering the Declaration of Independence

The day the Declaration of Independence was announced to the world is a day that no one will forget. July 4, 1776, was more than just the birth of our country. That day was proof that mankind can accomplish anything in spite of impossible odds.

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…

-Declaration of Independence

The document gave power to the people. It bestowed the responsibility to live in a free and just society. It calls upon the citizens to demolish an oppressive government that dares tread on the fundamental rights of all human beings residing within America’s borders. Finally, it formed the nation that gave birth to great scientific minds, demolished the Axis Powers of World War II and housed the first astronauts to walk on the moon.

If a greater document exists, then it’s lost to the sands of time or hasn’t been written yet.

Trump Begins Deporting Undocumented Immigrants

Trump gave Democrats two weeks to work with him to fix the border. They came up with a great funding bill that Trump recently signed. Now, he’s using those resources to increase deportations to secure our country.

This $4.6 billion funding bill was the perfect chance for Democrats to learn how to work with Republicans once more. Thankfully they did, and the future of Congress is looking a little brighter. Dems may be a pain to deal with, but we should reward good behavior when we see it.
