Government, Big Biz should serve us

Politicians are like the Pharisees who did not understand the purpose of the Sabbath. Jesus had to remind the Pharisees the Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. Likewise, politicians need to be reminded the government was made for man, not man for the government.

The original script has been flipped. It's no longer people first, government second and corporations third. Now, it's corporations first, government second and the people last. Corporations and government have psychologically and economically enslaved mankind. For this reason, Thomas Jefferson wrote, it is the right and the duty of the people to alter or abolish any government that hinders the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Therefore, it is time for the people to once again declare our Declaration of Independence. Just as Jesus had to remind the Pharisees, we the people need to remind the government and corporations that they exist to benefit mankind, and mankind doesn't exist to benefit government and corporations.
