Herb’s Review of the “Declaration of Independence”
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; first phrase of concern:
In the first paragraph we find the following phrase: “which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them”
When I use the term “natural law” I am referring to this phrase; “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”
THE “LAWS OF NATURE”
The laws of physics
We discover laws of physics with research and experiments.
Government laws must also be “discovered” by study, research and experimentation; I believe that the congress, especially since the year 1900, has written laws without adequate research. I believe that this is partly why we are in such deep trouble as a nation. See Judge Napolitano, can government create any law it wants? James R. Stoner, Jr., Louisiana State University on Natural Law and Common Law.
I believe and accept that the “laws of supply and demand” are natural laws; if we enact any law which violates any “Natural Law” we create evil.
HOW ARE WE DOING
Regarding Natural Law?
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; second phrase of concern:
CERTAIN UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, THAT AMONG THESE ARE LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS
These rights are appropriate to individual human beings from any and all nations of the world. I want a sign at our borders, “The US Constitution Applies Here.” Anyone here has their “UNALIENABLE RIGHTS” protected.
Groups do not have these rights, only individuals. Groups are a collection of individuals and their rights are their individual rights. See “Creed of Freedom,”
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; third phrase of concern:
THAT TO SECURE THESE RIGHTS, GOVERNMENTS ARE INSTITUTED AMONG MEN
Governments are created to “Protect our Rights.”
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; fourth phrase of concern:
DERIVING THEIR JUST POWERS FROM THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED
Government ONLY has power that the individuals possess on their own.
Individuals have a right to life, and to defend their life, therefore the government also has the right to provide defense.
