"We hold these truths to be self-evident..."
Words of wisdom. Concise and brief.
Essentially, the capacity to 'see self-evident truth' is our Greatest American Heritage. Our founding ancestors staked their reputations, fortunes and lives on this highest of virtues.
Seeing self-evident truth.

As you click your way through them, ask yourself: Do you think the men pictured above, their spouses and their children would be proud of life-quaking sacrifices they made in the creation of what has become the U.S.A. today....????

In Congress, July 4, 1776
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that we are all created equal, that we are endowed by our birth with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among us, deriving just powers from the consent of us.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. ~~~
