Is it time to create a new government?

Everyone knows this part of the Declaration of Independence:

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.

but did you ever read the next part?

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, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.


Maybe it is time to start over?

When I read things like this article, and I quote:

T.J. Cosgrove, a representative of the King County Health Department, told KOMO that it's "always best if parents are involved in their children's health care, but they don't always have a say."

I simply do not feel SAFE.

I do not feel safe for my children.

Of course I do still have the right to homeschool them, and not put them into the care of people who I do not trust anymore... so there is still an amount of freedom with that.

But seriously. The Founding Fathers? They were trying to get away from just this sort of thing!!

Read it again:

...whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends (the unalienable rights of people to be alive, to be free, to pursue happiness), it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.


So, obviously people who are against abortion have not been able to alter the government... maybe we just need to found a new one?! The premises and declarations are already written! We just have to USE THEM and go by them again!!

  1. Well put sweetie. I'm still prayin' hard that it's not too late to undo the madness. We serve a God who can override the powers against us. I tell ya Satan is working overtime against Gods children.

    You have a good day, sweetie!!!

  2. Satan is working overtime because for to long, God's children stopped working! I am praying that this debacle of a government we have is the wake up call that His children need and we get to see true revival throughout our land. If not....I'm with you...Let's start over!!

  4. The sad thing is, I was more sad than shocked when I read about that poor girl. Here in WA, it is so incredibly liberal, the higher beings in charge honestly don't think that regular folks have a clue.

    The first mistake made here was the mom signing the consent form. She was okay with allowing routine health checks and birth control through the state schools...this was the next logical step.
