DECLARATION “As We the People of the United States endeavor to sustain a natural order in which the autonomous human archetype shall certainly persevere, there may come a time when the citizenry must challenge those who would attempt to lift the Curse of Freedom from freedom-loving people; that time is upon us. To this end and for the sake of self-preservation, we will defend and honor these simple truths; that we are all born into a natural state of freedom; that each of us is endowed with the power of free will; that we have established a set of intrinsically sanctioned rights to protect us from government tyranny and among these are the right to speak freely, without constraint, and to use cogency to defend ourselves against all usurpers of freedom, as the majority of us would rather shoulder the burden of responsibility for our own lives than be forced to forfeit individual liberty; the right to procreate and raise a family unbound by government restrictions; the right to determine the path of our own destiny in accordance with our own desire, such that we shall not be made slaves of the State or any controlling agency. Let this declaration signal the clarion call to action as We the People of the United States rise against any and all tyrannies of vassalage and reclaim the freedom that rightly belongs to each of us, individually, one and all.” copyright 2009 Patrick Pierson Original oil on canvas 60" by 60"

    Michelangelo would probably be proud to have this in the Sistine Chapel among the lunettes. Your classical treatment of this subject is superb.
