The task before us is doubly difficult. Not only must we turn the people of the United States back to God and the Christian, Biblical basis for our American claim to liberty and self-governance, to the self-evident truths and the natural law moral principles of our forefathers, but at the same time, we must lead them, by example, in the carrying out of the great labor of replacing our current corrupt political process and leadership with a principled, practical alternative that is truly of the people, by the people, and for the people.
This is not easy. In fact, in and of ourselves, based solely on our own limited individual resources and power, obviously, it cannot be done.
But, as the Holy Scriptures, and the motto of the great State of Ohio, say, "With God, all things are possible."
Yes, with God's providential assistance, and with the focused, united commitment of all decent American patriots, it can and must be done, for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
It's not optional.
It must be done.
"We have counted the cost of this contest, and find nothing so dreadful as voluntary slavery. -- Honour, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them, if we basely entail hereditary bondage upon them. Our cause is just. Our union is perfect. Our internal resources are great... -- We gratefully acknowledge, as signal instances of the Divine favour towards us, that his Providence would not permit us to be called into this severe controversy, until we were grown up to our present strength ... With hearts fortified with these animating reflections, we most solemnly, before God and the world, declare, that, exerting the utmost energy of those powers, which our beneficent Creator hath graciously bestowed upon us...we will, in defiance of every hazard, with unabating firmness and perseverence, employ for the preservation of our liberties; being with one mind resolved to die freemen rather than to live slaves...With an humble confidence in the mercies of the supreme and impartial Judge and Ruler of the Universe, we most devoutly implore his divine goodness to protect us happily through this great conflict, to dispose our adversaries to reconciliation on reasonable terms, and thereby to relieve the empire from the calamities of civil war."
