The Redlands Tea Party Patriots Salute Martin Luther King for Upholding the Constitution and America’s Founding Principle That All Men Are Created Equal

The Redlands Tea Party Patriots Salute Martin Luther King for Upholding the Constitution and America’s Founding Principle That All Men Are Created Equal published on

THE REDLANDS TEA PARTY PATRIOTS SALUTE MARTIN LUTHER KING FOR UPHOLDING THE CONSTITUTION AND AMERICA’S FOUNDING PRINCIPLE THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL
MLK 06  MLK 01MLK 03

The Declaration of Independence states:

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,…

This is the foundation of American liberty and the Constitution, which is the foundation agreement for how we govern ourselves as free people. It is the “why” of America.

The 2nd Amendment provides “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

The 14th Amendment guaranties due process and equal protection. The 14 Amendment was intended to grant equality before the law to the newly freed slaves.

The 15th Amendment guaranties the right to vote could not be abridged on account of race. The 15 Amendment was intended to grant the newly freed slaves the right to vote.

After the withdrawal of Federal troops from the South in 1877, the Democrats took power in the South and systematically violated the 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution depriving African Americans of due process, equal protection of the law and the right to vote, and that was not just in the South. Other Americans including the courts failed to uphold the Constitution until beginning in the 1950s.

BTW, the Democrats’ “Black Codes” that prohibited African Americans from owning guns allowed the Democrats’ military arm, the KKK, to terrorize and intimidate African Americans to deprive them of their 14th and 15th Amendment rights.

******************************
Dr. King recognized this stating in his famous “I have a dream” speech:

When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

******************************
The Redlands Tea Party Patriots take the opportunity of MLK Day to salute Martin Luther King for his work in upholding and enforcing the Constitution of the United States and upholding America’s founding principle “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.”

Martin Luther King also exemplified Justice Louis D. Brandeis’ statement: “The most important political office is that of the private citizen.”

*****************************

The experience of African Americans and the Constitution is an important lesson for all Americans.

Thomas Jefferson said: 

In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

The experience of African Americans shows how true Thomas Jefferson’s statement is and the importance of the Tea Party principle of “constitutionally limited government.”  Unless government is firmly bound by the Constitution, no one’s rights and liberties are secure.

******************************
Some of our other favorite Martin Luther King quotes:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

Cowardice asks the question, is it expedient? And then expedience comes along and asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? Conscience asks the question, is it right? There comes a time when one must take the position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must do it because conscience tells him it is right.”

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in moments of challenge and controversy.”

We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”

Some things are right and some things are wrong, no matter if everybody is doing the contrary. Some things in this universe are absolute. The God of the universe has made it so. And so long as we adopt this relative attitude toward right and wrong, we’re revolting against the very laws of God himself.”

Any nation or government that deprives an individual of freedom is in that moment committing an act of moral and spiritual murder. Any individual who is not concerned about his freedom commits an act of moral and spiritual suicide.”

If you can’t fly, run; if you can’t run, walk; if you can’t walk, crawl; but by all means keep moving.”

Tell me again which political party did he belong to?

The full quote is even better.

“In my own native state of Massachusetts, the battle for American freedom was begun by the thousands of farmers and tradesmen who made up the Minute Men — citizens who were ready to defend their liberty at a moment’s notice. Today we need a nation of minute men; citizens who are not only prepared to take up arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as a basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom. The cause of liberty, the cause of America, cannot succeed with any lesser effort.”

Tea Party Patriot’s View: Hi, Mom. It’s me—America!
Today marked the sad end of one phase of my life— my children’s and grandchildren’s outgrown baby and toddler toys moved to their new home at the Family Services Association. Farewell Fischer Price, dollhouse, and mini-bike!
But I was lucky to live that phase compared to the young women of today. At least I experienced motherhood—both as a child and as a parent. Even better is grandmothering—the joy God gave us to compensate for surviving teenagers.

With fewer and fewer women choosing the traditional path of marriage and motherhood, American society is changing dramatically. Democrats and Progressives have brought us tax policies that make children a financial burden, a net decrease in family income over the last five years, and the longest sustained war in the history of the U.S.—the War on Poverty. American society is reaping the pitiful results of that do-gooder policy in amazingly negative ways. When President Lyndon Johnson declared “unconditional war on poverty” in 1964, he had no idea it would long out-last the Vietnam
War and with about as much success. Fifty years after its implementation, the poverty rate has actually gone up from 14.2 percent back then to 15 percent in 2012, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This despite investing $20.7 trillion in 2011 dollars during that time. The unintended consequences on the family structure have been devastating.
Democratic politicians encouraged the proliferation of single mothers when they enacted welfare laws that made married women less eligible for assistance than women with no man in the home. Gradually these poor women learned to spurn marriage and instead embraced a new social pattern—they discovered that each out-of-wedlock child qualified them for more welfare money while a man in the home made them ineligible for benefits.
Marriage took a big hit. According to census data, almost 41 percent of 2012 births were out-of-wedlock compared to
the 1964 rate of around 17 percent.
And that’s not even the worst news!
George Washington University School of Public Health researchers discovered that, in 2010, almost half of all births, 48 percent, were paid for by Medicaid. Another name for Medicaid? You—the taxpayer. You paid for about 823,000 births in 2010 and about the same every year since. And the out-of-wedlock birth rate is rising every year.

And that also means that in that one year alone there were 823,000 children who did not have the benefit of a traditional family of wife and husband.
According to the Heritage Foundation’s analysis, children raised in “single-parent homes are four times more likely to be living in poverty than children reared by married parents of the same education level. Children who grow up without a father in the home are also more likely to suffer from a broad array of social and behavioral problems. The consequences continue into adulthood: Children raised by single parents are three times more likely to end up in jail and 50 percent more likely to be poor as adults.”
As a foster mom, I can tell you that each of our foster daughters who were from single mother homes suffered profoundly from social and behavioral problems, including alcoholism, chronic school absenteeism and promiscuity.
Married moms can counteract this vicious cycle of poverty and despair. According to the Heritage Foundation, marriage drops the probability a child will be poor by 82 percent. That’s huge!
What else is so great about motherhood? It’s the most important relationship you can have with another human being—mother/child. All your earliest memories are tied up around mom. A profound Jewish proverb says that God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers. Tea parties around the country support conservative candidates who understand the importance of marriage and mothers. We want to help individuals like my foster children to escape that vicious cycle, find stable marriage partners, and have wonderful mothering experiences.
Thanks, Mom, and God bless America.
