Appeal To Heaven 4 Colorado
In 1691, the British philosopher John Locke wrote in his Second Treatise on Civil Government that
[W]here the body of the people, or any single man, is deprived of their right,
or is under the exercise of a power without right, and have no appeal on earth,
then they have a liberty to appeal to heaven, whenever they judge the cause
of sufficient moment. And therefore, though the people cannot be judge,
so as to have, by the constitution of that society, any superior power, to
determine and give effective sentence in the case; yet they have, by a law
antecedent and paramount to all positive laws of men, reserved that ultimate determination to themselves which belongs to all mankind, where there lies
no appeal on earth, viz. to judge, whether they have just cause to make their Appeal To Heaven.
This notion resonated with our founders so much so that it was adopted as one of the original flags of the American Revolution, predating the Declaration of Independence.
The essence of an Appeal to Heaven is that when legal and peaceful means to resolve political and governmental differences between governors and the governed have been exhausted, those aggrieved have the option to take their case to God by way of removing the offenders. This philosophy is the basis of We The People who are sovereign and give power to the government through our consent to be governed. When earthly government is recalcitrant to the governed, We The People must take our case to God and appeal to heaven.
Appeal To Heaven Colorado invokes this philosophy and offers a platform for patriots and patriot groups to gather, exchange information, and coordinate collaborative efforts in furtherance of self governance.
Appeal To Heaven is not a singular group, but an umbrella under which other patriots and patriot groups can organize for the purpose of strengthening our republic and the efficacy of We The People.
