We Are Endowed By Our Creator With Certain Inalienable Rights

The truth about what Thomas Jefferson believed

Written by Gary Wonning

The Declaration of Independence clearly states that we are endowed  by our creator with certain inalienable rights.

This sentence was entered into our Declaration of Independence for one reason. It was to state, in no uncertain terms where our rights as humans originate.

Our founders believed our rights come from God, not government or any individual on earth.  They made it perfectly clear, in this sentence and when they wrote that we have freedom of religion, they didn’t say that we had freedom from religion.

No where in the constitution does it state that we have a separation of church and state. It is true they were very specific that there would be no state sponsored religion, but that doesn’t mean we can’t practice our religion in the public square or that duly elected government officials can’t profess a believe in a Supreme Being.

Through our long history as a country most of our representatives have professed a belief in a higher power.

The separation of church and state  was designed to protect the churches from government interference.

The government cannot dictate what a church preaches or believes, however government employees do have a right to their own personal beliefs and the practice thereof, business owners also have the same right. Business owners can’t be discriminated on by government because of what they believe spiritually.

People always look for a higher power to believe in , if they don’t believe in God, they begin to believe in Government and make them their Gods.

This false belief in government , as we can see can only lead to disaster., evidenced by the behavior of many in our country today.

The founders were correct when they said that our rights come from God, not government, we need to learn that all over again.

Our elected representatives are our representatives, not our leaders, they may be world and government leaders, but they are our representatives, they represent what we want, big difference.

The Case For Past Life Studies

 

Written by Gary Wonning

Many today don’t believe in reincarnation, especially in our western civilizations.

Those in the “New Thought” community are into all the various kinds of healing and spiritual modes, but many never consider the idea of reincarnation.

I suppose It is just too far out there to even consider. Many consider it taboo or not even possible, they are so hung up on being a body with a soul, instead of a soul with a body that many don’t even consider the possibility of having a soul.

They are so hung up on the material life that nothing else really matters. They have kicked God out of their life so life is all about buying the next new car or video game.

Even though they are rebelling against conventional religion,  and the beliefs held by most people, reincarnation is just too long a bridge to cross.

What if by studying who we were in the past it could open up a whole new area of understanding of why one acts and feels and believes as they do in their present existence.

What if while researching our past we discovered we were once a different race, or gender, or sexual orientation and  we believed entirely differently politically than we do today.

What if we were the black who suffered under slavery, or an Irishman who was once discriminated against.

What if we were the business man who struggled daily to provide an income to raise his family and who worried about providing an opportunity and income for tens, hundreds, or thousands of employees who depended on him daily  for their basic needs by working for him.

He knew that if he failed, many people would become unemployed and their families could go hungry.

We could discover we were a priest, or minister, rabbi or medicine man. How would that change our perspective?

Each and every life, regardless of how important it may seem, is valuable and it is not time wasted.  Many times living a life as a poor peasant is more valuable as learning is concerned than being the ruler of a great nation.

To me, the philosophy of reincarnation only makes sense, if it is true, then it could explain much of the issues we have in today’s world and if people understood all the lives they may have lead under different circumstances and different roles, people would finally understand other people and how they would feel if they were that person.

Couldn’t that change the world?

Eating Goat

A young couple invited their pastor for Sunday dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were having.
“Goat,” the little boy replied.

“Goat?” replied the startled man of the cloth, “Are you sure about that?”

“Yep,” said the youngster. “I heard Dad say to Mom, ‘Might as well have the old goat for dinner today as any other day.

Out With the Old, In With the New

 

Many want to throw out everything old, regardless of it’s intrinsic value or how long it has been believed, they want it replaced. 

Many are trying to change history, discarding what they believe is no longer needed, or what is disturbing to someone’s feelings. 

They want to replace religion or discard it altogether.  replacing it with a  one world religion or government, not thinking about what effect that would have on the world population, or even if it is practical or makes sense. 

They don’t stop and realize that no two people will ever think the same, or should,  when it comes to spiritual matters.

We have different countries, with borders because people believe differently, and come into life wanting to experience different lifestyles and social settings. If there were only one form of government, that would not be possible. Planet earth is a giant school house where we all come to learn different lessons, that would not be possible if we were all the same and believed the same on every issue. 

Obviously, many problems need to be solved and attitudes need to change on some issues, but there are many of the old values that have been carried down from time immemorial, that are being forgotten and discarded that are much needed in today’s world. 

We are forgetting what our ancestors taught us.

In Our Culture: We Create Victims

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Written by Gary Wonning

In our culture, we create victims.

By looking at someone as a victim, It makes  us feel good to be able to help someone who is downtrodden and oppressed.

Art Prints

By feeling as though we are victims, it gives us an excuse for acting and behaving the way we do without taking responsibility for our actions.  It is easier to blame someone else and remove all responsibility. 

After all, it is always someone else’s vault.

Many of our politicians keep getting elected over and over again by continuously blaming someone else for their actions, and by creating victims by teaching them to rely on government to be their savior by continuously telling people that government is the one who can solve all your problems and give you the life you deserve, when the truth is, the government is the main cause of most of our problems.

When humans are left to solving their problems, using their own God given free will and initiative they are quite capable of solving any issue that may come before them .

All the government needs to do is just get out of the way.

Liberalism only survives by creating victims, promising to give you the things you need, in order to further the cause of victim hood.

To further their cause and increase the size of government, they  need to take up the the fig leaf of victim hood. The liberals need to create more victims to depend on “free” handouts. 

Conservatives believe that every one is in charge of their lives and can do what they want as long as it doesn’t infringe on the rights of others.

They just go on and live life staying out of others peoples business and go on to create a better life for ourselves.

Mind your own business, do what is morally and ethically right, and if you become wealthy you make others wealthy too.

When ever I got into a jam, my dad would always say, ” You were smart enough to get into this mess, I’m sure you are smart enough to get yourself out of it.”

He would then turn and go home, saying, “I’ll be there if you really need me.”

In other words, he was telling me it was my karma and I was the only one who could fix it.

No one else can fight your battles, when you finally learn that, your battles will vanish.

As long as we try to sidestep those issues that keep springing up in our lives, they will continue to plague us.

Many times, we do others the biggest injustice by helping them, they will never grow past their issues until they stand on their own two feet and get to the root of their problems.

Do We Want the Truth, Or Do We Want Political Correctness

photo of a distinguished older gentleman

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Written by Gary Wonning

In these days of political correctness, we often find it hard to discern what the truth is and what really happened at a certain event.

Often times, in order to not offend anyone, the facts are so distorted so that we an no longer decide with a rational mind what actually did happen. The truth gets hidden in the message because people get offended so easily and the press is often reluctant to disclose the details for fear of upsetting someone or facing the cold hard facts of reality. 

What is politically correct has suddenly taken precedence over what is correct and in the best interest of the individual. Being politically correct and worrying about someone’s feelings is more important than the truth or doing what is right. 

Once we become concerned about what is politically correct, we get a watered down version and never really know anything else about it. This leads to misconceptions and often places blame on people who had nothing to do with the event and somethings the heroes become victims. Many times a certain group of people get the blame and attention when in fact that is far from the truth.

There is much emphasis to do things for the common good of society while we slowly lost our rights as individuals, once that idea takes root, the time comes when we will no longer have any individual rights. 

Ayn Rand wrote the following…

“We must learn to reject as total evil the conception that the common good is served by the abolition of individual rights. General happiness cannot be created out of general suffering and self-immolation. The only happy society is one of happy individuals…The power of society must always be limited by the basic, inalienable rights of the individual.”

That is not what our country was founded on, our country was founded on individual rights, individual freedom.

We are being lead into socialism and loss of control of our individual rights. 

Once people stop believing in God, they begin believing in government.
