United States Declaration of Independence.

The United States Declaration of Independence is a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which announced that the thirteen American colonies then at war with Great Britain were now independent states, and thus no longer a part of the British Empire. Written primarily by Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration is a formal explanation of why Congress had voted on July 2 to declare independence from Great Britain, more than a year after the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War. The birthday of the United States of America “Independence Day” is celebrated on July 4, the day the wording of the Declaration was approved by Congress.

The Declaration justified the independence of the United States by listing colonial grievances against King George III, and by asserting certain natural rights, including a right of revolution. Having served its original purpose in announcing independence, the text of the Declaration was initially ignored after the American Revolution. Its stature grew over the years, particularly the second sentence, a sweeping statement of individual human rights:

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.

This sentence has been called “one of the best-known sentences in the English language” and “the most potent and consequential words in American history”.

After finalizing the text on July 4, Congress issued the Declaration of Independence in several forms. It was initially published as a printed broadside that was widely distributed and read to the public. The most famous version of the Declaration, a signed copy that is usually regarded as the Declaration of Independence, is on display at the National Archives in Washington,D.C.

The famous wording of the Declaration has often been invoked to protect the rights of individuals and marginalized groups, and has come to represent for many people a moral standard for which theUnited States should strive. This view greatly influenced Abraham Lincoln, who considered the Declaration to be the foundation of his political philosophy, and who promoted the idea that the Declaration as a statement of principles through which the United States Constitution should be interpreted.

Granted, the Declaration of Independence, and the particular wording of the particular sentence I am referring to, does utilize the word “men” in its wording, whereas in my opinion, Monday morning quarterbacking, the sentence and America would be better served with the word “people ” in its place, and again, Monday morning quarterbacking, I believe if the wives of the 56 founding fathers would have had a say in the matter, it would have.

Not knocking George Washington, as I respect George Washington as the “Father of our Nation” as much as anyone. However with that said, I believe if Martha Washington would have had a cell phone and the right to vote, America would be an entirely different Nation today, a kinder gentler nation, with far fewer wars and far less corruption in our history.

Anyway, water under the bridge, spilled milk. As anyone over the age of five with the dexterity to turn on his or her computer understands, that you, we, or I, can’t change the past. And with that said, I have made it my current purpose in life to inform the American public that “they,” “we,” “you,” and “I” can change the future.

We, “you and I,” (all Americans) can change the future by providing America with a mother. That’s right, a mother, M-O-T-H-E-R, mother, i.e., a “woman” President.

We again, “you and I,” (conservative Americans) . Have three excellent choices waiting for us in the wings right now. All three women are excellent candidates, and all three have excellent credentials and more experience in the political arena than our current setting President had when he was elected.

Although Jan Brewer, currently the Governor of Arizona has not made any indication that she has any intention of running for President, she would be my personal first choice, for whatever that’s worth?

Sarah Palin, previous Governor of the State of Alaska and presently, at least in my opinion, an extremely popular “Tea Party” supported option for conservative Americans.

Michele Bachmann, currently the Congresswoman from Minnesota’s sixth district, and in my opinion, and equally popular and qualified option for conservative Americans.

What is not an option, at least in my opinion, (for conservative Americans)  ..if America is to ever return to the Greatness it once enjoyed in the world, we, “we the people,” “need to clean house.”

Accordingly, since I cannot speak for anyone other than myself, I leave you today with one question.

Return for a moment to your formative years, on those occasions when your house could be described with words such as “messy,” or “disheveled,” who cleaned up your house, your mother or your father?

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow…
