The United States of America

Thirteen colonies. Approximately 2.4 million people in 1775 who shared a common language, similar religions, the spirit of self reliance, liberty a life along the Atlantic seaboard to name just a few things which united them.

The step child of Great Britain grew up and declared its independence. The United States was formed.

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.

The wisdom of our forefathers still amazes me to this day. They did not want an all powerful central government:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.

Still concerned about the abuse of power the framers they again addressed the rights of citizens, limited federal government rights and gave the states authority to deal with their lives on a day to day basis. No living, breathing document here.

Other countries have attempted to create their sovereignty via a united federation approach. Let's take a look at the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia. Well, we saw how this worked out. These two countries were not united by anything other than strong willed dictators and violence. Their cause was not helped either by the full embrace of Communism.

The only way you can create a "united" country is having a shared belief system.

What unites our country today?: The Declaration of Independence? Hardly, how many people believe in God or a Creator?

English as the official language? No way, that's racist.

The belief in the Second Amendment? We know the answer to this is "NO". As there is a segment of our country who want to ban gun ownership. Heaven help us all the day "they" come to take away our firearms.

Science. Science will draw us closer together? That is stretch considering they want us to believe there are as many genders and pronouns as there are stars in the sky.

Can we be united if the Democratic nominee for president calls us deplorables and irredeemable? Even Christ forgave the thief on the cross. What does that say about Mrs. Clinton and her ilk?

What values does your community share with the Muslim communities of Minneapolis, MN or Dearborn, MI? We are a nation of laws not Sharia law.

Our country was founded on Judaeo-Christian values. Currently the US Senate has an undeclared vendetta against Catholic presidential nominees.

Over the weekend I have looked at the websites of the big name Democrats running for president. None of them discuss liberty. If they don't agree with you or your position, you are immoral. There is no mention of self-reliance but plenty of praise for one size fits all answers coming from Washington, D.C.

We might be called the United State of America. But, we are too big to succeed. It's not a matter of if, but when the citizens come to the conclusion: We are no longer united.
