With nary a scintilla of "collectivism” intended or otherwise implied, I would like to sincerely invite whoever would like to join me Saturday, February 20th at the State Capitol for this event.
Paraphrasing words Ernest Hancock
used at the 2008 End the Fed rally that helped to cement my resolve to join the
freedom movement, it is far better to be for something than it is
to be against the opposite of that something. And in the spirit of
positive activism, let’s remind those in attendance what the Declaration of
Independence stands for, and how the situations then and now are
In the 233 years, 6 months, and 28 days since it was adopted, the Declaration of Independence has become very faded, and unfortunately, so have the ideals engrossed upon its parchment. While we can't refresh the faded ink, we can refresh the spirit of individual liberty that it embodies;
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."
The Declaration of Independence will make a stop in Arizona next month, with a free one-day only viewing opportunity at the state Capitol.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, Feb. 20, and expect to wait in line, say operators of the state Capitol Museum, where the document will be on display.
The declaration was last in Arizona in 2003, where 25,000 people saw it during an eight-day span.
This time, exhibit hours will run to 4 p.m. and be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
After that, the document travels to Tucson for two days.
The state Capitol Museum is located at 1700 W. Washington St. in Phoenix. The exhibit is sponsored by the Governor's Office and the Arizona Secretary of State.
