"Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage on them." - Thomas Jefferson
“Honor”: A good name or public esteem. A keen sense of ethical conduct.
“Justice”: The quality of being just and impartial. Conformity to truth, fact or reason.
“Humanity”: Human attributes and qualities.
What a novel combination of words. A concept unprecedented by the noblemen of the ancestral countries of our Founding Fathers. Those qualities, having been
cultivated by repression, now resided within our revolutionary leaders. It was not that these words were newly created but by placing them together and practiced, would form a base of equality for the American citizen and future generations. The founders of our nation understood and accepted the responsibility of providing the guiding light of the Constitution.
I ask you to take inventory of the so-called American leaders of today at every
level and find one that would meet the expectations of Thomas Jefferson. I feel
quite positive that he would have placed them within the ranks of the British.
We are subjected daily by the same description of revolutionary issues that led
to war with Britain. Our current elected inflict upon us repression, over-taxation without representation, make attempts to disarm the citizens and show little or no respect for those that placed them into office.
Enablers, come to your senses!
