The Declaration of Independence
“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. “ -Thomas Jefferson ☆ The Declaration of Independence ☆ In Congress, July 4, 1776

You’ve heard of donkeys, elephants and even RINOs.

The Polka Dotted Philosophy Hippo will periodically publish papers and slideshows written from a conservative philosophical perspective with an emphasis upon the essence of Constitutional ideals.

In addition to discussing conservative values, The Polka Dotted Philosophy Hippo will apply philosophical critique to these political topics:

 The Constitution of the United States of America is one of the rarest documents of its kind in the history of humanity.  Our Constitution guarantees that every citizen has certain unalienable rights, which are from nature created by God.  Thus, no man, no government should ever be allowed to take away one’s right to life, liberty, health and property.  Conversely, government cannot create natural rights, and governments are instituted, ideally, to protect one’s basic rights.  Just government governs by the consent of the governed.

We the people decide what is right for ourselves, and our future, and our children’s future.

We The PeoplePreserving the Constitution is more important than any individual whom it protects, yet it will take the wisdom of the majority of the electorate to ensure that each and every individual’s rights are guaranteed.  This is what the Constitution does:  it says what the government CANNOT do to its citizens, or otherwise, we might not have any rights at all.

Elect individuals to public office who understand that they hold a civic trust, and are civil servants, who represent the will of (the majority of) those they represent.  Elect individuals to public office who honor their oath to uphold the original intent of the Constitution, and our fundamental American principles of liberty and justice for all.
