Our Founders pledged their lives, their honor, and their fortunes for their freedom 237 years ago today – what would you pledge for liberty?

The true revolutionary significance of the Declaration of Independence —then as well as now—is the declaration of a new basis of political legitimacy in the sovereignty of the people.
The Founders’ final appeal was not to any man-made decree or evolving spirit but to rights inherently possessed by all men. These rights are found in eternal”Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.” As such, the Declaration’s meaning transcends the particulars of time and circumstances.
