“The EPA is telling landowners they the EPA are prosecutor, defender, jury and judge where property is concerned.  If you for instance have an indentation in the land and water would accumulate while it was raining, the EPA has and will exercise complete jurisdiction of that property.   The EPA has taken the position they are ultimate owner of all property and the title holders rights are subject to the wishes of the EPA.”

REFLECTIONS ON INDEPENDENCE AND THE DECLARATION THEREOF

From the Declaration of Independence:

“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 affect their Safety and Happiness.”

1441183_401318466665654_1752838926_nWe were, according to the Declaration of Independence granted certain rights by the creator that are unalienable rights.  Amongst these unalienable rights are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.  It is important to note that these unalienable rights are not restricted to these three, but these three are included in the total.  Unalienable rights are rights not given by the government or men but are from the creator.  Therefore these rights are not be taken from us or restricted by the government or men in any way.  Included in the total of the unalienable rights would be many of the rights reserved for the people in the Bill of Rights.  These are rights such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion not freedom from religion, freedom to bear arms, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly and so forth.  These rights are essential in a free society.  In every totalitarian state, it is these rights that are restricted and limited first.

Our founding fathers told us, when any government becomes destructive of these rights, we are to alter or abolish that government and form a new one.  This is a very serious charge we were given.  As we look at the happenings and events in recent history, the question we must ask is have we reached such a time?  Doing a quick exam, I would suggest we are coming closer and closer to that time if it has in fact not been reached.  At the very least we must have an open and honest discussion that transcends spin and political correctness.
