John Adams, the second president of the United States, said he hoped that every July 4th the citizens of this country would spend time “revisiting our First Principles.” Our first principles are the following: 1) that all men (and women) are created equal; 2) that God gave all men (and women) inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; and 3) governments are instituted among men (and women) to secure those rights. What does it mean to revisit those principles? It means to allow ourselves to truly think about them – to emotionally and psychologically re-bond with them, and consider how they apply to issues in our own time. If our First Principles become simply inscriptions on marble walls – written on parchment and protected behind glass, yet no longer inscribed on each generation's heart – then they lose their relevancy, their moral force. Principles become lifeless unless kept alive within us. In referring to the founding of our country, Abraham Lincoln said our forefathers had "brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” He went on to say that the men who died in the Battle of Gettysburg had done so in order that “a government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth.” Yet is it not perishing now.? A government so corrupted by the influence of dark money that it does more to serve short term profits for huge multinational corporations than it does to serve us – we the people – and the planet on which we live, is a "government of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations.” And to that extent, we are no longer free. This July 4th, let’s reclaim the revolutionary spirit of 1776, and rededicate ourselves to the principles on which we stand. Please join with me this year for a live talk in New Hampshire and also via livestream for a discussion of America’s birthday – and why it matters. Where: Phenix Theatre, Concord, New Hampshire When: 2pm Pacific Time, 5pm Eastern on July 4 Livestream link here: https://livestream.com/accounts/11464019/marianne4 Here’s to everything American can be.
Reports vary on Marianne Williamson’s net worth, according to FOX Business. Williamson released her financial disclosure reports in January 2019 which listed business, speaking fees, and stocks such as Apple, Google and Whole Foods as her primary income.
Williamson is an unorthodox presidential candidate, but hopes that being a breath of fresh air will help her appeal to the voters.
“We need a new burst of freedom, we need a whole uprising of consciousness among the American people,” she said when she announced her bid for office. “New paradigm leadership is not about saying, ‘I’ll do it, send me to Washington.’ New paradigm leadership is where the leader is holding the space for the brilliance of others, and that is what I have done throughout my entire career.”
Williamson previously ran to represent California’s 33rd congressional district in the United States House of Representatives as an independent.
