Truths held to be SELF
Character in America
A Threat in America
Have you wondered about the
price of gasoline? How about
energy independence for the U. S.?
Here is some information that you may find intriguing. Real Change for the
U.S. will start with ENERGY INDEPENDENCE!
The following are pdf documents.
& USGS Bakken Area
Further information may be found at:
America was founded on a very
sound "Declaration of Independence" and a "Constitution" that gives us a roadmap
that defines governments limits. The Federalist Papers explains and
amplifies the original founding thoughts on the
Declaration and Constitution. All citizens must read and study these
documents! The Federal Government has specific powers listed in the
Constitution. Any powers not listed are left to the States.
There are enemies within and outside this
country who are doing their best to circumvent these documents and ascribe their
own unwritten interpretations and meanings to destroy the real fuel for our
economy, Capitalism. Capitalism will allow the private sector investment
for our energy independence and maintenance of feedom! Government must pay
attention to our security and such, but stay out of the way of real progress
which is real change brought about by real people doing real work!
I am sure that there are other alternative
energy sources. In order to maintain our country with the leading edge
now, we need our own energy source. This energy source that the USGS has
reported upon, could help maintain our independence in a world set against
America and our independence. Nuclear energy is another source.
Solar mirror/lenses are another source which would provide energy to make
hydrogen for Fuel Cell technology. Let us be creative. That is what
humans do when there is profit involved as incentive. Politicians in
government take away incentive.
Truths that are held to be SELF EVIDENT
Top of Page
OUR FLAG, DECLARATION, and CONSTITUTION codify the SPIRITUAL
nature of ALL Americans!
We have a great Nation! It is indeed great, a country with all the grandeur of
beautiful mountains, great plains, lakes, and rivers. We have bridges, high
buildings, systems called large cities, and even small communities as well. But
fact it is the small community and the individuals in all the communities, both
large and small that makes this a great nation. It is the Sprit of each
and every human that makes America. The physical part is actually a result
It is not so much the American Dream. It is 300 million Americans Dreaming.
It was not so much the Bridge to the 21 Century, but 300 million little old country
roads to the 21st Century.
It is a great land, that is great because of the qualities that we cannot see.
It is great by those qualities to often thought of as just plain old patriotic
It is our “Spirit of America.”
We are a nation founded upon one little idea. The
idea is that “all men are created equal.” And why are we created equal? Note
that we have short and tall, heavy and light, tall and thin, black and white.
What is equal about that? In fact no physical thing on the face of this earth is
physically the same or equal. Physically, we and all things are, thank God,
different. It is that Great Diversity of each individual that we celebrate here
Spiritually, we are all equal. We are bonded by those “certain unalienable
rights.” They were “endowed to us by our creator”, by our mere existence. We
have only to accept “those truths that are held to be self evident.” That “among
these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” “Among these” means that
there are other words that are most definitive of “Life, Liberty, and the
Pursuit of Happiness.” The words are the navigational aids to life. They are the
qualities of heroes.
Those qualities are:
Courage, Perseverance, Self Discipline, (strong personal strength) (3)
Humility, Reverence and Respect. (the balance) (3)
But in addition, above all, the most important 7th quality is real self honesty.
It is the first 6 that are the foundation to this quality. These are the
qualities that make us all equal. These are the 7 principles that bond us all
together, the e pluribus Unum.
From the beginning, we have all been united under ONE FLAG that stands for all
of these spiritual and physical attributes of our country. Let us continually,
daily, pledge our allegiance to this flag because it stands for all that is
AMERICA! This flag stands for qualities that all mankind understand and seek.
They are officially ours under our Flag, our Declaration, and our Constitution.
As you follow the sub links to this page, keep the above qualities in mind.
I'm not really telling you what to do. I just know that you already know
these qualities are important. Just a reminder. We all need
reminders now and then.
Character in America
Top of Page
Citizenship must come from Good Character. Technically,
anyone can become a citizen in the United States through the bureaucratic mechanical procedure, but true citizenship in America requires a certain personal character
alignment with the virtues or “truths that are held to be self evident”
articulated in the Declaration of Independence, the first document of the United
States of America. Without this alignment, the U. S. citizenship is no better
than that of any other nation. True, one automatically has all the benefits of
citizenship upon fulfilling the requirements and articulating the oath of
citizenship, but the true meaning and full effect of citizenship becomes much
more when backed up by PERSONAL understanding of the qualities of American
Culture with Good Character underlying the veneer of requirements and oath.

renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince,
potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a
subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of
the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I
will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf
of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant
service in the armed forces fo the United States when required by the law; that
I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when
required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental
reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.”
Take a look at Hillsdale College
This is a publication that has great thoughts that will help lead toward an
understanding of our country, America, history, present day issues, and more.
It is worth a visit on a monthly basis.
