Everything in reality is but cause and effect...does this sound fair enough as a general statement? Whether you attribute Cause to 'God' or 'Nature' or 'Chaos'...most people believe that all outcomes must necessarily have an inception of some sort.
Let us then go to the cause of the establishment of this Republic.
Would most everyone agree that this Nation is the culmination of Two primary principles...that of placing the Right of the Individual as superior to the Right of a King and/or a mob...and that of the Right of the Individual to worship freely that God which he finds most reasonable to him or her self?
The two concepts are bundled quite nicely under the phrase...Base Liberty vs. Divine Right.
I think that is an emminently fair and logical point of origin for the uSa.
BTW, I use the lettering uSa to not only denote the first letters of the Official title of the United States of America, but also to note the sanskrit word for "dawn", the end of darkness. I feel they dovetail quite nicely...don't you?
