A Plea for Common Sense

Post by mtmynd » July 3rd, 2019, 1:14 pm

"A Plea for Common Sense":
(Please give this a thought for our July 4th)

"Our United States is commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States signed on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject (and subordinate) to the monarch of Britain and were now united, free, and independent states. The Congress had voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2, but it was not declared until July 4." - Wikipedia

In these days where we should be quickly granting the rights afforded these poor, suffering, homeless immigrants to our Nation to seek what this country's Declaration of Independence demands of the People. In part I share these words from our Founding Fathers signed into Law _

“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."

How can we, the People of this Nation in all consciousness stand by and celebrate our Declaration of Independence's sacred words while on our Southern Borders we have hundreds of people seeking what we have granted to us by our Founding Fathers? Today, on this wonderful day of July 3rd, 2019, how can we not raise our voices loud and clear to our Governing Bodies, who we have faithfully voted into their office and continue holding strong our Declaration of Independence and all that it stands for. All the while knowing about the great problem on those Southern Borders continues on day to by day, month by month while those same Congress People argue and dismiss the the truths occurring right now on the border… not hundreds of miles away.

This band of No Goods would rather put on a Show of Strength but not show strength to end this borders crisis. It is shameful and un-American IF they believe in the very document they gave oath to when they came into office. Whether it is the whole of Congress, the President himself and even our Supreme Court… they tell us, the People, in their silence that they would rather take our monies and ignore our problems, to ignore the poor, filthy, needy people, children, mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, grand parents… they are all on the border waiting for our Declaration to mean something to them just as it did to every citizen has been granted.

I say to our Politician and the President - Please God and stop your empty words of pleas to your God. The crisis is undeniable and repairable.

Prayers for beneficial treatment couldn't hurt. But,the need for collective action to
relieve the overcrowding, nasty conditions-- even actual kidnapping-- at the border, must
begin immediately. I am part of the choir who condemns the cruel treatment of latino
refugees as I'm sure most of us are.
