When our founders signed the Articles of Confederacy, they made the conscious decision that what they were fighting for was worth every one of their lives and the lives of their families. They saw the United States of America as an opportunity to grasp perfection, and that was worth more than anyone, it was worth everyone. The United States Declaration of Independence declared our independence to the world. We sworn an allegiance to ourselves, not a crown, and not any man or woman. We were still at war with the British Crown, our declaration laid out our demands and our intent clearly and concisely to our enemies. The United States Declaration of Independence began with one of the most well-known and powerful sentences since God had created man.
“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.”
Acknowledging that all men are created equal, we are created equal, it is our free will that enables us to either ascend or descend from that point until our death.
The United States Constitution, laid out the perfect ideology of The United States of America. Like the Holy Bible, the constitution lays out absolute perfection, it provides the groundwork and a step by step guide of how to attempt perfection. We are all human, we sin and give into temptation. We know right from wrong, we are all created equal, however; it is our free will that allows us to choose right from wrong. The United States of America is the closest nation to perfection, just because man is corrupt and fallible, doesn’t mean that The United States of America is corrupt or fallible.
The United States Bill of Rights is what we need to sustain and improve man’s odds and chances of insuring The United States of America. As men and women of this great country, none of these documents or ideologies belong to any one person exclusively. These documents are all of ours, these documents are the idea of perfection in an imperfect world.
The United States of America is quite possibly man’s final attempt at right in a world of wrong. We cannot lose America, we cannot lose ourselves in selfish and petty fights. The United States of America breathes life and hope into the rest of the world. If America is lost, then man will forever be lost.
