Declare Your Independence From Tyrannies Big and Small!
Written by Jeff Horn   
Monday, 04 July 2011 00:00
On this Independence Day, I wanted to bring you some words from our country's Declaration of Independence and illustrate to you how these words, penned by Thomas Jefferson over 230 years ago are relevant to our lives in the DeForest area today.

Jefferson writes:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

Now, Jefferson was talking about King George and his governors in the 13 colonies, but the premise is no less true today in DeForest, Windsor, Vienna, Leeds, and Morrisonville.  Our village, town, and school boards derive their just powers from the consent of the governed.  They have power because we the people consent to it.
