According to the Declaration of Independence, this new American government was about some self evident and unalienable rights Among those were life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. To the securing of those self evident and unalienable rights,…”Governments are instituted among men.”These men according to the Declaration of Independence,.. “deriving their just powers from the governed.” It was important to the people who drafted the Declaration of Independence that the citizens have some clear understandings about human nature. All governments whether republics, democracies, conservative, or liberal. All share a commonality, they are all corrupt and self serving. To that end they wrote,…”That when any government becomes destructive of those ends (self evident, unalienable rights) it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government…” Equally important to the understanding of human nature. Was the realization that it would be easy for a few greedy and powerful few. To take control of the government and take it where it should not travel. The drafters of the Declaration of Independence attempted to create an alarm of warning. They wrote,…”and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.”
This current government made up of republicans and democrats are not representative of common Americans. Who are in need of public services that meet the civil rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Some of those civil rights, that result in making life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness what the drafters intended. Are surely found in a livable wage package that includes health, vacation, retirement. Wages should be indexed to the cost of living. Which is more like $20 per hour. Health care should be a government expense; totally. Vacation time should be long enough to make recuperation possible. Certainly, not less than four weeks annually. Retirement should be factored into the cost of living index.
Who is going to pay for this? Our government! This current government can spend millions per hour making war in places like Iraq. This current government spends hundreds of thousands of dollars per hour engaging in the over throw of governments. Governments like that of Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.
Are we as a people so conditioned into accepting government rhetoric that we have the best government ever devised? If that is an acceptable, public conclusion. Than the drafters of the Declaration of Independence were absolutely correct. People are more willing to suffer than to cast off the burdens that weigh them down,
We do not have the best government ever devised. We have the tools for creating the best government ever devised. It’s our birth right guaranteed by law. As Americans, we are commanded to alter, and abolish any government, that is not responsive to the dictates of the governed. Much work needs to be done! This American government serves the needs of the few very rich and powerful. It has been that way since the countries inception. The many serve the monetary needs of the few. It is time for a change.
