"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, 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." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society."

America...

Millions of people, including my relatives, made the trip from Europe chasing a dream. They went through immigration and worked hard to become assimilated to their new home, learn the language, and provide for their families. They didn't ask for anything free. No handouts, no demands, just the opportunity to pursue the American dream of freedom and independence.
This is a powerful song. I would encourage you to go to the website at the end of the lyrics and read the inspiration behind why this song was written. -TI


"AMERICA" LYRICS
What would bring a young man, to rise up from his birthplace
pack his life into a suitcase and set sail for distant shores
And what would cause a Grandma, after 80 years of living
to leave her little village not knowing what may lay in store
What could fill the hopeless millions with a newly-kindled faith
in a brighter future far across the waves
I can almost hear them say…

Chorus
America, I hear you calling me
Sweet land of liberty, I’m on my way
America, beckoning with open arms
I long to feel the warmth of freedom’s flame
God has given hope a name, America

They spent the voyage crowded at the bottom of a steamer
fightin’ famine, fear and fever for six long weeks or more
Children cried from hunger, oh and mothers wept for babies
praying they would make it to see the other shore
But the weariness and worry must’ve melted from their eyes
to behold that lady rising in the sky
Oh can’t you hear them cry…
(Chorus)

Bridge
So I will not take for granted this life I’m blessed to lead
or the ones who sacrificed so much to hand it down to me
Cause not so long ago, this land I call home was just a dream
of huddled masses yearning to breathe free

Chorus
America, may God keep you in his hand
keep you strong and help you stand, this I pray
America, hold high your splendid torch
let the whole world feel the warmth of freedom’s flame
God has given hope a name, America
