What Is Liberty?

by Barbara Latta

On July 4, 1776, Congress officially adopted the Declaration of Independence which voiced the intent of the colonies against the tyranny of King George and the British Empire.
The Declaration of Independence
The signers were affixing their names to a document that would seal their fate as traitors should the colonial army lose the war. They believed in what they were doing so much they were willing to sacrifice home, family, health and lives to ensure the independence of the new country.

The struggle of war continued until 1783 with a victory over the superior army of Britain. The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution which would later follow offered Americans protection from enemies and various freedoms such as religion and speech.

Apparently, some think those documents are outdated and should be eliminated or re-written. Others think those freedoms only apply if you are a liberal God-hater. The ruling by the Supreme Court on gay marriage is one example.

American was founded on God
Many states voted to define marriage as between one man and one woman but since the liberal activists didn’t like that they pushed to get the Supreme Court to overrule the rights of thousands of Americans and say the votes are worthless. The desire of those states is worthless. Our right to vote is worthless.

The founding documents of our country give me the right to voice my opinion whether liberals agree with that or not. The title of this blog is Navigating Life’s Curves for a reason; because there are things in life and society we need to navigate correctly.

What is liberty? It is the right of a people to oppose a government that is misusing the laws. That's what the Revolution was all about.

It’s time for us to stand up for what is right and be loud enough to be heard. Not in an obnoxious, violent manner the way the liberals do, but in the method granted us by the document adopted on July 4, 1776. We have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Those things are now being downtrodden by the decay of America.
Liberty

We can take back the rights of families by calling for a repeal of this outrageous law. We can contact congressional representatives and encourage them to adopt legislation to put America back where she belongs. We don’t have to accept this as final, and we don’t need to shake our heads saying how bad this is and then do nothing about it. We WILL be voting in another year, and hopefully enough people will wake up and vote according to biblical standards and not in favor of whoever is going to give them something for nothing.

Celebrate Independence Day thanking God for this country and the reason people died to found the government of the people, by the people, and for the people. 

Happy July 4! God bless America!
