Suppose some foreign country, or their mother country, had taken pity on the Pilgrims in their misery, and sent them ample food supplies during those first terrible years of starvation. Would the Pilgrims ever had LEARNED AND APPLIED THE CONCEPTS OF THE DIGNITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL AND THE SANCTITY OF PROPERTY THE IDEA THAT EACH INDIVIDUAL IN ENTITLED TO THE FRUITS OF HIS OWN LABOR?

Freedom for the individual, with recognition and RESPECT for the right of each individual to his property, is essential to the RELEASE OF INDIVIDUAL HUMAN ENERGY, WHICH ALONE ...CAN RAISE THE STANDARD OF LIVIN ! Let us highly resolve to dedicate our lives as individuals, to "planting for our own particular,; rather than living as parasites on the productive energy of OTHERS! SO LET US DEDICATE OUR LIVES TO RENEWED APPLICATION OF THE IDEAL OF INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM AND INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY, WHICH OUR PILGRIM FORBEARS LEARNED AT SUCH SACRIFICE AND WHICH THEY PASSED ON DOWN TO US AS ..."THIS OUR MOST PRECIOUS HERITAGE.",!!!

We can and should change the way we intrust our precious FREEDOM TO THOSE WHO GOVERN OVER US, BUT LET US NOT LOSE SIGHT OF WHO WE ARE and for WHOM WE ARE all endowed too, our Creator God Almight!
