Freedom’s Price Tag

With Freedom Comes a Huge Responsibility

 Freedom is very precious commodity. With freedom comes responsibility. Freedom is the basic principle that The United States of America was founded upon. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, John Hancock, and George Washington knew that true freedom came from God. What God? You ask. Freedom emanates from God of The Holy Bible.

Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1781 (Volume IV, page 289,from Jefferson’s Notes on the State of Virginia), ” God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of the nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that his justice cannot sleep forever.”

John Adams wrote these words the day after The Declaration was approved by congress to his wife Abigail, ” {July 4th} ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.”

John Adams wrote in a letter to Thomas Jefferson on June 28th, 1813, ” The general principles upon which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and the attributes of God.”

John Hancock said on April 15th, 1775,(A Day of Fasting,Humiliation and Prayer, with total abstinence from labor and recreation) ” In circumstances dark as these, it becomes us, as Men and Christians, to reflect that, whilst every prudent Measure should be taken to ward off the impending Judgements.”

What many on the left fail to realize is that these great yet mortal men, Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, John Adams, George Washington and the other brave men who signed the Declaration of Independence put their entire lives on the line so that we can have the rights and privileges given to us under a simple yet very powerful Biblical based Constitution of The United States of America.

When you go through the names of the men who signed The Declaration of Independence, you will find that 95% of them LOST EVERYTHING.

According to Serendipity.com, the British hounded Thomas McKean, who was one of the signers of The Declaration of Independence, until he was forced to leave his home and live in hiding. McKean lost everything and he died in poverty.

According to the Connecticut Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, at the Battle of Yorktown, British General Cornwallis took over the home of Thomas Nelson Jr. (signer of The Declaration of Independence) and used it as his headquarters. Nelson Jr told George Washington to open fire. Washington did and the Nelson home was blow into the next life. Thomas Nelson Jr. died bankrupt.

It was reported by Faith of Our Founder Fathers that Francis Lewis signer of The Declaration of Independence, had his home and properties completely destroyed by the British. Lewis’s wife was thrown in jail.

These brave men knew that they were living in intolerable conditions. They were willing to sacrifice every possession they had so we would have freedom to choose where we want to live, worship God how we want to worship God, own property, and to have our God given rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

What amazes me is that many of our so-called elites and supposed intellectuals of our society don’t know or don’t have a clue that our nation is based on Biblical principles. The most precious of these is our God given freedom to choose how we want to live and worship yet President Obama, former President Bill Clinton, Hilary Clinton, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and the rest of the Democrat Party are hell bent on destroying our country and making it into a Marxist haven.

You can also throw into the mix John McCain, Olympia Snowe, Arlen Spector, and many members of the Republican Party who are willing accomplices in helping the Democrats throw this nations heritage down the crapper to further their own political careers.

This is down right scary that these people have been elected to guide this great nation of ours right into the ground and destroy the very principles upon which The United States of America is founded upon.

Very few people are willing to stand up to this onslaught to usurp our freedom. Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage are the only folks in the media who come to my mind. Governor of  Louisiana Bobby Jindal and Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin come to my mind as well but that’s it .

 My own experience has taught me that the price tag for not following God’s word can be very steep and expensive.

God help us as we head down this slippery slope towards Marxism and the relinquishing of our precious freedom in exchange of some momentary comfort.
