Read and Weep

If you haven't read it yet, this might be a good year to read the Declaration of Independence. As my previous post mentioned, we have traveled in a complete circle. Don't believe me? Go ahead, read the list of grievances against the British King. They bear eerie similarities to today's headlines.

Think about today's issues. The Federal government is refusing to enforce the laws to defend our national borders, in Arizona especially. The "Fast and Furious" scandal reveals an executive branch willing to sacrifice its own citizens to further its gun control agenda. The president, acting alone, makes "Czar" and recess appointments--while Congress is in session, not recessed. The unfolding nightmare of Obamacare delivers us into the hungry maw of an ever-expanding bureaucracy.

What were the colonists of 1776 upset about? The king refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

Hmmm...sounds like Arizona and immigration.

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world.      

Keystone Pipeline, anyone?

He also combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation...

Wow. Obamacare.

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent.

Yes. According to the Supreme Court, no less, that's most definitely Obamacare.

There's plenty more that's relevant in the Declaration, but I highly recommend you read it for yourself and see just how much trouble we're in today. It's enough to make an American cry.

The brave colonists who founded our country concluded that:  

A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.                  

How could the Founders possibly have foreseen President Obama?
