Declaration Of Independence:
The Declaration Of Independence was written to specifically charge the King with those acts that were against the Liberties of the Citizenry. The King was in violation of sacred oaths, relationships, the English Constitution, forced labor, subversion, domestic unrest and more.
In the same way the democrat party has become the combined violators of the same charges that were brought against the King in The Declaration Of Independence. Ok, there are a couple that are not related yet, the majority fit the complete list of charges.
Therefore it is Time to Declare Our Liberty once again from the destruction that has been brought on by the demoncrats – as Sam Adams wrote to Noah Webster: “I hope it will not be in the Power of any designing Men, by imposing upon credulous tho’ well meaning Persons long to keep this Country, who may be happy if they will, long in a State of Discord & Animosity.”
Protestants Set the Stage:
Edmund Burke lays it out very concisely to the English Parliament that the populist actions of the Americans not only stems from the Liberty of the English Constitution but also primarily do to Reformation Protestantism. Without doubt, I will always challenge modern pastors and church leadership to understand the Foundational Truths by which our nation was established.
Therefore, as J. T. Headley states in his preface to The Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution, “But notwithstanding the necessary incompleteness of the work, I feel I have done something towards giving the clergy and the pulpit the place which they ought to have in the history of the Revolution, and furnished a book which will benefit the generation now rising into manhood, by directing the mind not only to religious influences, but to the great source of all national blessings, as well as to battle fields and the strong legions.”
In like manner about one hundred years earlier Burke, in that famous speech emphasizes, “But the religion most prevalent in our northern colonies is a refinement on the principle of resistance; it is the dissidence of dissent, and the Protestantism of the Protestant religion. This religion, under a variety of denominations agreeing in nothing but in the communion of the spirit of liberty, is predominant in most of the northern provinces…”
Oh that the communion of the denominations would agree again on these Foundational Principles of Liberty!
With that said, We MUST understand our Foundational Truths to keep the Republic and Constitutionalism working according to Original Intent. In 2019 we will continue to look into the mirrors of history as they apply to our present.
And because you keep asking!

4. A side note reference regarding the Foundational Definition of Citizenship: “Article 4, Section 2, Clause 1: Crandall v. State
“A citizen means a freeman. By referring to Dr. Webster, one of the most learned men of this or any other country, we have the following definition of the term – ‘Citizen: 1. A native of a city, or an inhabitant who enjoys the freedom and privileges of the city in which he resides. 2. A townsman, a man of trade, not a gentleman. 3. An inhabitant; a dweller in any city, town or country. 4. In the United States, it means a person, native or naturalized, who has the privilege of exercising the elective franchise, and of purchasing and holding real estate.’”
