With a Firm Reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence


We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

The above words from the Declaration of Independence have become an afterthought that is marginalized by our leaders, the media and our educational institutions.

Notice the phrase “united States of America”. The “u” in united was not capitalized and the “S” in States is capitalized to show that the relationship between the Sovereign States under a tightly restrained federal government that was subservient to the 13 states. The illegal ratification of the 14th Amendment changed this relationship and let the genie out of the box: the federal government took control of the country and made the states subservient to a small group of politicians in Washington, D.C. We became the United States of America.

The reference to the Supreme Judge of the world refers to God. As much as the Socialists who have usurped the government try to rewrite our history, it is self-evident that our forefathers appealed to God to secure their freedom. Imagine invoking God’s name for insurrection against the “lawful” government today. Actually, you do not have to imagine because the pResident has publicly labeled these bitter clingers:

You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.

And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

Let’s understand the federal government’s position concerning rebellion or insurrection:

Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

Regardless of the consequences, what is our course of action according to Thomas Jefferson:

“I do not know whether it is to yourself or Mr. Adams I am to give my thanks for the copy of the new constitution. I beg leave through you to place them where due. It will be yet three weeks before I shall receive them from America. There are very good articles in it: and very bad. I do not know which preponderate. What we have lately read in the history of Holland, in the chapter on the Stadtholder, would have sufficed to set me against a Chief magistrate eligible for a long duration, if I had ever been disposed towards one: and what we have always read of the elections of Polish kings should have forever excluded the idea of one continuable for life. Wonderful is the effect of impudent and persevering lying. The British ministry have so long hired their gazetteers to repeat and model into every form lies about our being in anarchy, that the world has at length believed them, the English nation has believed them, the ministers themselves have come to believe them, and what is more wonderful, we have believed them ourselves. Yet where does this anarchy exist? Where did it ever exist, except in the single instance of Massachusetts? And can history produce an instance of a rebellion so honourably conducted? I say nothing of its motives. They were founded in ignorance, not wickedness. God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people can not be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. We have had 13. states independent 11 years. There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century and a half for each state. What country ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure. Our Convention has been too much impressed by the insurrection of Massachusetts: and in the spur of the moment they are setting up a kite to keep the hen yard in order. I hope in god this article will be rectified before the new constitution is accepted.”

Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 13 Nov. 1787

It is our duty to rebel against tyranny. And of course the tyrants will make laws to preserve their power. We have come full circle to 1776 but lack the courage to pledge our lives, fortune and sacred Honor to follow in the footsteps of our forefathers.

It is quite simple: all we have to do is place a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence. Our forefathers took a leap of faith to release the grip of tyranny from their children’s throats. Each taxpayer’s portion of the government’s debt is just under $850,000 today.  Is this the legacy that you will pass onto your children? Or will you invoke God’s protection and fight for your family and country?
