In the spirit of Independence Day, Generation Opportunity asks that you take a moment to remember the courage and convictions of our Founding Fathers who, on July 4th, 1776, signed the Declaration of Independence.
Their actions 236 years ago were a direct affront to the British throne, as the Founders pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor in the cause of liberty so that one day Americans would be free of tyranny. Would you have taken the same risk for your generation and those to come?
Today, we ask that you affirm those same convictions and renew your pledge to support and defend the timeless ideals and universal truths of the American Revolution by “signing” The Declaration of Independence right here!
These ideals and truths are as important in 2012 as they were in 1776. Especially at a time when our elected leaders should be listening to our concerns about the growing size of our government, the stifling burden posed by thousands of laws and regulations, increasing taxes, and America’s indebtedness to foreign powers as a result of our government’s reckless and unrestrained spending. The issues America faces today cannot be ignored or dismissed as simply partisan disagreements. The stakes are high and require your involvement and constant vigilance, lest our elected leaders adopt solutions that cost future generations both their wealth and liberty.
So please join us in pledging to support and defend the true spirit of the American Revolution! When you sign the pledge your name will appear on a scrolling list on the Declaration of Independence on the next page.
