(Eye has taken the liberty to write what we believe may have been news of the day on July 4, 1776. We also believe those same grievances from our past are alive again today such as obstruction of justice, the imposition of taxes without our consent and the abdication of our President to be our protector. History tells us what we should do when our unalienable rights of all men are squashed by Above the Law elites. Let us pray that by the year 2024 will be the year America restores the promises of all our founding documents for the benefit of all citizens of this beautiful country. Happy 4th!)
July 4, 1776
In a historic moment that will shape the course of history, the thirteen United States of America have unanimously declared their independence from Great Britain. The representatives of the colonies, gathered in the General Congress, made their resolute decision known today, publishing a document they call the Declaration of Independence.
The declaration begins by acknowledging the natural and unalienable rights of all men, including the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It emphasizes that governments are established to secure these rights and derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. When a government fails in its duty to protect these rights and instead becomes tyrannical, it is the right and duty of the people to alter or abolish it.
The document goes on to list a series of grievances against the British Crown, highlighting the numerous abuses and usurpations committed by King George III. These include the refusal to pass important laws, the obstruction of justice, the quartering of troops among the colonists, the imposition of taxes without consent, and the suspension of colonial legislatures. The declaration asserts that the King has abdicated his role as a protector and has waged war against the colonies.
The representatives stress that their repeated petitions for redress have been met with further injury, leaving them no choice but to declare their separation from Great Britain. They declare the thirteen colonies to be free and independent states, absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown. With this newfound independence, the states have the power to levy war, establish peace, form alliances, engage in commerce, and exercise all other rights of independent states.
The signing of this declaration is a pivotal moment in the struggle for liberty and self-governance. The representatives, in a spirit of unity, pledge their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to support this declaration. They understand the risks involved but firmly believe in the righteousness of their cause and rely on divine Providence for protection.
The news of this momentous event will undoubtedly reverberate throughout the colonies and beyond. The declaration signifies the birth of a new nation, one founded on the principles of freedom, equality, and the pursuit of happiness. The resolve and determination of these thirteen United States of America is to now shape the course of their destiny and inspire the aspirations of people around the world who seek self-governance.
Abigail Adams, the wife of John Adams, one of the signers of the Declaration, said he told her he had high hopes that this Declaration would be the most memorable Epocha in the History of America. He felt it should be celebrated by succeeding generations with great pomp and parade, with games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of the Continent to the other.
We hope he is right and celebrations will continue. They are already happening on the streets outside where the Declaration was signed. It’s a Happy Day in the United States of America on this day the 4th of July 1776.
Now we wait to see what the King will do with this news. If you are interested in reading the Declaration, you can find it here.
