What did our Founding Fathers Seek? Freedom from King George January 18, 2006
Three hundred years ago, the poet Matsuo Basho said Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old, seek what they sought. What did our Founding Fathers seek? Freedom from King George. Sound familiar? In 1776 our Declaration of Independence explained it like this. Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
