Patriot’s Corner – Government Goons vs. The Little Sisters of the Poor? Really?

This is not a comedy skit. This is real life in the United States of America, aka “the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

Our present administration would have us believe that our rights come from them.

But even a cursory glance at our Declaration of Independence shows otherwise.

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

Our rights do not come from government. And thank goodness for that, otherwise our “rights” on Monday might very well be gone on Tuesday, depending on government’s whim.

“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”

Our government’s rights come from us.

We seem to have forgotten that.
