NATURAL RIGHTS BESTOWED BY GOD VS. SLAVES OF MEN
Rather, we see in Article IV, Section 4: "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican form of Government,"
The Pledge of allegiance contains: " ..and to the Republic, for which it stands.."
Commenting on our form of government, Chief Justice John Marshall stated: "Between a republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos."
Even though the current version of the pledge of allegiance to our flag as mandated by the Federal Government contains the word "indivisible", that is not true..Under the Constitution of The United States, each state is a sovereign entity unto itself, and may or may not divest itself from the union as the people therein may determine for themselves.
The Soldiers Training Manual, issued November 30, 1928 gives the following definitions:
"TM 2000-25: 118-120, Democracy - A government of the masses.
Authority is derived through mass meeting or any other form of direct expression. Results in mobocracy. Attitude toward property is communistic, negating property rights. Attitude toward law is that the will of the people shall regulate, whether it be based upon deliberation, or governed by passion, prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard to consequences. Results in demagogism (sic), license, agitation, discontent, and anarchy."
"TM2000-25: 120-121, Republic - Authority is derived through election by the people of public officials best fitted to represent them.
Attitude toward property is respect for laws and individual rights, and a sensible economic procedure. Attitude toward law is the administration of justice in accord with fixed principles, and established evidence, with a strict regard to consequences. A greater number of citizens and extent of territory may be brought within its compass. Avoids the dangerous extreme of either tyranny or mobocracy. Results in statesmanship, liberty, reason, justice, contentment, and progress.
"You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men."
--1 Corinthians 7:23
It was upon this premise that our Founders drafted the Declaration of Independence, our Constitution, and the first 10 amendments which are the Bill of Rights. At the Constitutional Convention (1787), Benjamin Franklin declared: "We have been assured..in the Sacred Writings, that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain..."
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.
Keep in mind the words "Congress shall MAKE NO LAW".
Also keep in mind that the Bill of Rights was designed for the specific purpose of PROTECTING the NATURAL rights of the INDIVIDUAL citizen bestowed by the CREATOR. Protection FROM THE GOVERNMENT, that is.
The Government does NOT bestow rights on the people. Rights are NOT a privilege.
NOBODY has the right to "control" guns.
NOBODY has the authority to INFRINGE on an INDIVIDUAL citizen's RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS, the right to protect herself/himself against aggressors of any kind!
I find it pathetic that so many people in this country are wimps, and that they are just NOT going to stand up for their rights.
Some of them actually waste their time arguing over whether or not they HAVE any rights. These are people whose lives are ruled by fear and who have handed over their power to the government.
And these people will get exactly what they deserve.....slavery under the NWO.
