The statement “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” does not mean much to a non-American; but to Americans who struggle to make their way in life, that statement means everything. As stated in the Declaration of Independence, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are our God given rights. Nowadays one must be mindful of how some in our political culture interpret those rights.
To Americans, life includes your family life and your spiritual life. Live life to the fullest and never let any form of government lessen your life or deprive you of life.
Liberty is your freedom. Your freedom from government oppression, your freedom from bondage. Liberty gives you the freedom to choose. You have the freedom to choose where to live, work and worship.
Pursuit of happiness is for you to choose. This God given right is not another government run program. Pursuit of happiness does not mean it is the government’s job to guarantee your happiness. What it does mean is that every American has the opportunity to pursue what makes them happy.
Today’s democratic politicians want to weaken our country’s very foundation by manipulating the interpretations of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Future generations are counting on us to stop this manipulation. Vote these politicians out of office.
