John Adams Quote

“Upon this point all speculative politicians will agree, that the happiness of society is the end of government, as all divines and moral philosophers will agree that the happiness of the individual is the end of man. From this principle it will follow that the form of government which communicates ease, comfort, security, or, in one word, happiness, to the greatest numbers of persons, and in the greatest degree, is the best.”

The distilled ideal of the animating principles of the Founding of the glorious American Republic.

I absolutely agree when it is understood that true happiness is a direct derivative of those beings that are in harmony with the laws of nature and of nature's God.

Through the efficacy of His expiatory sacrifice, the middle wall of partition was broken down for all of mankind. Grasping the liberty provided by our Creator, his judgement's made manifest through and by His natural laws. Simplicity, in order to form a more perfect union enjoining Peace through Strength. The calming resolve of Washington, The sharpness and clarity of Jackson, The wisdom, knowledge and compassion of Jefferson and Madison. Let our New POTUS, President Donald J.Trump come to embody such unwavering faith and confidence in the Creator of heaven and earth, to whom we owe our Liberty and Freedom. From the heavens to the earth, All are numbered and named, let us teach our children the whole truth. just like a song that is sung. God Bless and Semper Fi

Life is an amazing gift and this world a true blessing. What we do with it determines our happiness. Creation is a constant process, as is awakening to it. I am ever in awe. To sing in harmony with it is transcendent. And to be in a community of like-minded is paradise. "Thy kingdom come."
