LETTER: 'We the people' do not need a union
To the Editor:
Consider the motto change from the 1812 version "In God is our trust" to the shorter, easier to fit on coinage version since 1873, "In God we trust."
Who decides what and who you trust? Thee or "we"? If "we" decides for you, who decides who decides? You know the person who decides and everyone else follows to make up the "we." Or "is our" trust a personal choice for you?
Keep that thought. Now read these words again.
"... and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them ..." We're talking about "We the People in order to form a more perfect Union..." "We" does not need a union, they are a union, a leader with a bunch of obedient followers. It's our individuals who need a union to protect their individual rights.
The bedrock of our nation is individuality that is entitled to each of us as a law of nature. The fabric of our individuality is woven together by dependence on each other remaining independent. The more technology we use the more individual skills we need. There are a lot more parts to an iPad than a pencil and no one person can make either one of them.
Our nation's strength is individuality. Its common core is ethics, morality and integrity which are laws of nature from nature's God.
What difference does it make?
