Page 6 Minding Your Own Business By Don Taylor A history lesson We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are en- dowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pur- suit of happiness. - from the Declaration of In- dependence The freedoms we enjoy as Americans are stated simply and eloquently in the opening lines of the second paragraph of the Decla- ration of Independence. As quoted above, it outlines our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Perhaps this historical decla- ration would never have been penned without the straightfor- ward writings of Thomas Paine. Over "'he Counter Higher Motivation/Association I am thinldng about asking Mike Rhinehan (The Jehovah's Witness) to run for public office. Talk about achieve- merit... Someone went out and built, brick- ed, and landscaped a building west of town. Thursday night there was an unassuming =lab. By Sunday at 3 p.m., 150 people, (including cooks) had built a modern facility complete with plush carpet, mahogany stained hardwood trim, and country accent borders, in the current colors. Coffee shop Humer has it that the difference between a dodge truck & a Jehovah's Witness is that you can't close the door on a dodge...I don't think the truck can get as much work done either.

Please note ripped into the colonists for that I did not say those documents remaining loyal to a king who sanc- tioned their deaths, taxed them un- fairly, overturned their legislative activities and enforced his will over the will of all the people. Partially because of Paine's writings, the mood of the people turned away from allegiance to the King of England and more toward being independent from the crown. Richard Henry Lee of Virginia, in- troduced a motion to that effect in Congress in June, 1776. Thomas Jefferson modified Lee's motion extensively with help from Ben- jamin Franklin and John Adams. Jefferson's expanded work, the Declaration of Independence, was adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776. A written guarantee Some of you are wondering why I am presenting this brief his- tory lesson. I want to remind you of our written guarantee.

The Declaration of Inde- pendence and our Constitution af- firm the origin of government as the willingness of the people to be in- dependently governed. We the people, are the government. We elect others to conduct national business. These documents also af- firmed the duty of the people to change or abolish a government that no longer serves them well Therefore, I ask if you feel that our federal government is responsive to our needs. Is our government serv- hag us well? Are we truly free to succeed? Do we want our leaders to turn our country from the democracy that has served us so well for more than 200 years toward socialism that even the Soviet's have given up on? Should we embrace healthcare reforms brought to us by the same folks who brought us wel- fare? Or, Is it time for more com- mon sense? Freedom to succeed I believe that it is time to take back the control of our destiny. If our government continues to urp our rights, drown us in regulations and destroy our ability to create our wealth, we will lose our freedom to succeed. The biggest threat to small business today is not competition from mega competitors, but rather the insidious growth of federal and state governments. We cannot tolerate the continuing encroach- ment of "big brother" into the free- enterprise system. The costs of non-productivity must not be thrust upon us. We all pay for govern- ment. Every cost of bureaucracy is passed directly on to the consumer and taxpayer. It is not too late, we can turn our nation around. We can learn from history. Let us elect men and women who will lead us to less government, not more. Corporate America is proving that "even the private sector can benefit by be- coming more productive and effi- dent. It is time to down-size our governments. We must communi- cate our wishes freely, often and distinctly. We must return to government by the people, for the people and of the people. We can regain the freedom to succeed. Then we will be able to truly celebrate Independence Day.
