Because of the course of human events, and because of the arrogance of the ruling class, we the people are dedicated to change the direction our government has taken.

We have determined our political leaders are taking away our freedoms and our liberties in the name of egalitarianism.

Our original Declaration of Independence made clear that Nature's God had given us life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

It also postulates when a government becomes destructive of these God-given gifts, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it and to replace it with a new government which will have the foundation and principles upon which the people can realize the benefits of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as ordained by Nature's God.

We shall re-establish justice in the true meaning of the word. Ergo, not as defined by a politician to suit his purposes.

We shall re-establish domestic tranquility and the peaceful social stability it provides.

We demand a strong common defense to protect our nation, its citizens and our way of life.

We shall promote the general welfare by creating a burgeoning economy and all that entails.

We the people of the United States of America are determined to rebuild this nation upon the principles of freedom, liberty, justice, domestic tranquility, a strong common defense, a growing economy, and the pursuit of happiness with the blessing of Nature's God.

As our Founding Fathers did, let us pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to continue and to defend the fundamental freedoms upon which the United States of America was founded, and to which it was committed in 1776.

The verity of the fundamentals does not change, only the leadership changes.

Don Kennedy
