There are different type of devastation.
Devastate is defined as “to destroy a place or a thing completely or cause great damage”
One thing that has been devastated is “liberty”
Liberty which is defined as “the freedom to live as you wish and go where you want.”
In the past few decades the liberty for all as the preamble of the constitution sates:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, established Justice, domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, Do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.”
Has become devastated.
In the 9th amendment of the constitution this is stated:
“The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
Simply states is that the people have some many rights that it would take up pages to list and show them all. Another way of looking at it is that we are all free to live as we please as long as this freedom does not tread upon other people’s freedoms.
Yet this is exactly what is being done.
When someone with the use of the law or the constitution makes others have to be forced into accepting others lifestyles they are impeding their freedom, which is against the constitution. Now that being said. This nation did establish certain laws to guarantee these said freedoms. Unfortunately it took decades for these right to be realized for the entire “We the People.”
Why was there a need to form a “more perfect Union?”
Because there were those that were the rich minority that dictated how all others were to live. These are those that are now called the “one percent,” the “elitist.”
However, we have returned to that point where those in the one percent and are the elitist wish to dictate how the majority is to live.
This is against the constitution and the very reason it was made in the first place. The thing is there are those out there that ask to be told what to do. These people are themselves working against the constitution for they are stating that they wish to enumerate our rights.
How can going from having so many rights to having them limited by for the constitution?
The answer is simple it is not.
Then why do people seek to be ruled, told what to do? Why are they surrendering their right?
I honestly have no idea.
However their desires are infringing upon the rights and freedoms of those that wish to remain free. The thing is more and more seek to be ruled, to be governed. To surrender their freedom.
From the Declaration of Independence we see these words:
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
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.–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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.”
Those in Washington and those of the party that denies the very existence of God, as well as any that calls themselves “progressive;” have become a form of government that is destructive to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Destructive to life – the legalization of abortion that has cause the death of near 60 million United States citizen the right that were promised them by the founders
Destruction of liberty – by forcing people to no longer have the freedom of speech and to live their lives as they so desire because a few wish to impose their image of “liberty” on to all other at the cost of the other people’s freedom, but not allow them to live their lives as they so choose.
Destruction of the pursuit of happiness by making it impossible to get jobs and mandating that people become dependent on the government, which is robbing them of the happiness by making them poor and destitute, yet implicating that the real fault is those that have escaped the control of the government as best they can. By imposing mandates that take the hard earned money from those that have a job so that they cannot seek happiness away from the restrains of the government.
By the very fact that they deny God which the founders stated DOES exist in the declaration as shown in these words:
“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, which among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Yet by saying that someone cannot live as they wish to live. Make a living as they wish to make a living. They are stating that not all of humanity is “created equal.”
Did it take nearly two hundred years to finally make all equal? Yes, but this was caused by those like those now that wish to take freedoms away from others because they do not think as they do. Because they say there is no God we must bow and change to their will.
This was the very reasons our founders did treasonous rebellion against those that repressed them, that took their freedoms, which said they must worship as they worship. That they must live this way within the dictates of a government. This is the very reason this nation came into existence. Because of freedom to worship and acknowledge God as is His right as our Creator.
How can we even attempt to seek our own freedoms if we do not acknowledge God’s freedom to have created us in His image?
This is an honor and a blessing. We are design to compliment and work within nature, and any that oppose this right and oppose nature oppose God.
Does not God deserve the honor and respect of His created children? If not then people deserve to live in tyranny and slavery to the state. A slavery that the last of “all men are created equal” just so recently came to embraced, but now have so quickly surrendered unto the government once again as slaves unto those in Washington and call themselves “progressives,” when in reality they are digressive and wish to rule their slaves like masters of plantations and kingdoms.
