SORT BY Relevancy
TVFM decided that the Declaration of Independence should be updated for the 21st Century. Let's see if we can revise and tailor it to fit today's US world.
We'll talk about if the original intent of Constitution is still in line with preventing the list of "abuses and usurpation" of despotism from happening.
We'll throw in a few more tidbits. And maybe so will you, our TVFM truth seekers, reporters and solution masters.
Remember, some fearless candidate for office may just stop by. You never know.

What comes to your mind when you think about the 4th of July? For most of us it's fireworks, parades, a day off work and backyard barbecues. But Freedom is not free. The origins of our country began with war. It was inspired by the greater good of obtaining our freedom from Great Britan. The Fourth of July has been celebrated by public readings of Declaration of Independence from the courthouse steps ever since. But not everyone does this still today, so in case nobody's reading it at your court house, I will read the Declaration of Independence to you or you can play this at your own courthouse. In this special Independence Day edition of Home Front, we start by talking with a Vietnam Veteran and then stay with us for the Declaration.
Colonel Quincy Collins was Born on the 4th of July in 1931, He graduated from the Citidel and became a flight commander with the Air Force as a Second Lieutanant. He was shot down over Vietnam which left him as a prisoner of war for the next 7 1/2 years and provides us with a perspective on freedom and war from one who was on the inside.
Would you have signed?
Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, and Francis Lewis, stories are all here in the Complete Series II by best-selling authors Murray Pura, Amber Schamel, and John V. Amodeo,
What was going on the morning of the signing in Philadelphia? These four amazing authors have brought that to life.
The Declaration of Independence series asks all of us that one soul searching question. If you were rich, if signing meant defying the world’s superpower, if failure meant your family would be left destitute and you would be hung by the neck with your hands tied behind your back until you strangled to death, would you have signed The Declaration of Independence? Would you have risked your privileged life so that others might live in freedom?
That was the question facing John Hancock and in the face of overwhelming odds he answered, “Yes.”
“We must all hang together,” Hancock said, before almost choking on his disastrous choice of words. Men’s faces clouded. They realized they stood on the brink, but could still step back. As had so often been the case, it was Benjamin Franklin who saved him, who saved us all.
“Yes, we must indeed all hang together,” Franklin replied in an equally loud voice. He took a moment to push his spectacles up his nose. “. . . or most assuredly we shall hang separately.”
The hall burst into surprised laughter. Men now smiled, grimly perhaps, but they lined up and took their turn, signing the most important document in the history of the world. Only Franklin, Hancock thought to himself.
“We hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable; that all men are created equal and independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent and inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
Thomas Jefferson turned over in his sleep.
That document – they tore what I wrote apart. I must talk to Ben Franklin and John Adams. They have to persuade the Continental Congress to restore my original wording before the delegates sign it.
And so the saga begins.
The “Declaration of Independence” series brings to life the crafting and signing of the World famous document as told through the eyes of Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, and Francis Lewis.
Best- Selling author Murray Pura also includes recipes for Corn Bread and Colonial Braised Rabbit with “Volume 1 – Thomas Jefferson”.
Fast Fact- There is something written on the back of the Declaration of Independence.
There is a simple message, written upside-down across the bottom of the signed document: “Original Declaration of Independence dated 4th July 1776.” No one knows who exactly wrote this or when, but during the Revolutionary War years the parchment was frequently rolled up for transport. It’s thought that the text was added as a label.
Tune in to the 3 Wise Wives as they discuss the topic of, "Is there room for independence in marriage?"
What every American should know by memory. America is a living breathing person. If a corporation is a person, then America is his mother. The Declartion Of Independence is her Birth Certificate. The Constitution is her Social Security Card. She lives in the White House. She works at Congress. She practice her religion at the Justice Department. She is the Mother of 300 million children (and growing) . She is driven by a supreme desire to form a more perfect union. She is a becon of hope, an inspiration,and a role model for her siblings (the world). She is the favored daughter of the Creator. The eternal flame of freedom burns deep within her soul. Please join me as I read the Inspiration of so many great men and women who were ignited by her Soul Flame. Be prepared to be set on fire,as I read from The Declartion Of Independence.

As the nation celebrates Independence Day, I see it as important that we assert once again why the Colonies revolted against Great Britain, whom many saw as their national identity, took pride in and diligently sought to mend the differences before their tolerance wore out and they were compelled to reject the authoritarian actions of the King they had been loyal to before.While most of us have heard of the Declaraion and have read some of the key phrases or heard them enough to recognize certain elements, I'm not so sure that many have heard or read the entire document through. Thus as civics and history are neglected in our schools, it becomes our duty to elucidate those things which should be common knowledge amongst the population.In order to preserve the spirit of the nation which declared itself independent, we must learn the circumstances that brought our founders to the conclusions outlined in it. And so today I will read it for you so that this generation may understand and take up the mantel of nobility that our founders asserted for themselves as sovereigns over their lives and gave their countrymen.
