Is it time for a new Declaration of Independence? If true individual choice and truth are any factor of freedom, the writing is on the wall not just in the United States, but globally.

Prisoner of the Supreme Law


Every elected official in the United States of America pledges to defend the Constitution; not the King, or even the President, but the nation’s founding set of laws and amendments.
