It is a matter of Principal

with 2 comments

Principle 1 – The only reliable basis for sound government and just human relations is Natural Law.

Principle 2 – A free people cannot survive under a republican constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong.

Principle 3 – The most promising method of securing a virtuous people is to elect virtuous leaders.

Principle 4 – Without religion the government of a free people cannot be maintained.

Principle 5 – All things were created by God, therefore upon him all mankind are equally dependent, and to him they are equally responsible .

Principle 6 – All mankind were created equal.

Principle 7 – The proper role of government is to protect equal rights, not provide equal things.

Principle 8 – Mankind are endowed by God with certain unalienable rights.

Principle 9 – To protect human rights, God has revealed a code of divine law.

Principle 10 – The God-given right to govern is vested in the sovereign authority of the whole people.

Principle 11 – The majority of the people may alter or abolish a government which has become tyrannical.

Principle 12 – The United States of America shall be a republic.

Principle 13 – A Constitution should protect the people from the frailties of their rulers.

Principle 14 – Life and liberty are secure only so long as the rights of property are secure .

Principle 15 – The highest level of prosperity occurs when there is a free-market economy and a minimum of government regulations.

Principle 16 – The government should be separated into three branches .

Principle 17 – A system of checks and balances should be adopted to prevent the abuse of power by the different branches of government.

Principle 18 – The unalienable rights of the people are most likely to be preserved if the principles of government are set forth in a written Constitution.

Principle 19 – Only limited and carefully defined powers should be delegated to government, all others being retained by the people.

Principle 20 – Efficiency and dispatch require that the government operate according to the will of the majority, but constitutional provisions must be made to protect the rights of the minority.

Principle 21 – Strong local self-government is the keystone to preserving human freedom.

Principle 22 – A free people should be governed by law and not by the whims of men.

Principle 23 – A free society cannot survive as a republic without a broad program of general education.

Principle 24 – A free people will not survive unless they stay strong.

Principle 25 – “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations — entangling alliances with none.”- Thomas Jefferson, given in his first inaugural address.

Principle 26 – The core unit which determines the strength of any society is the family; therefore the government should foster and protect its integrity.

Principle 27 – The burden of debt is as destructive to human freedom as subjugation by conquest.

Principle 28 – The United States has a manifest destiny to eventually become a glorious example of God’s law under a restored Constitution that will inspire the entire human race.

 

The bottom line is as Americans we have walked away from the foundational principals that with God’s provision made America a Great Nation. United We Stand and Divided We fall The Choice is ours to make…

Blessings,

  1. Thank you for your comment you are correct. morality cannot be legislated. At the same time is it prudent for a civil people to allow the legislation of that which is immoral to be the accepted norm for our nation. True enough as you have stated, “Even though those who authored our Constitution were not in complete agreement on religious principles and practice, still it was assumed a Divine Being of some description was our Source, Guide, and Goal.” In addition, as you have said “we should embrace what we share!” When growing up we were all Americans first and thankful for the privilege. Your family’s heritage was always secondary to embracing the blessing of being an American Citizen. Today it seems people throw the blessing aside.

  2. Agreed! Sadly, though, morality cannot be legislated. Even though those who authored our Constitution were not in complete agreement on religious principles and practice, still it was assumed a Divine Being of some description was our Source, Guide, and Goal. Instead of “bullying” one another for our various and myriad differences, we should embrace what we share!
