Healthy Life Integrity

I find a consistent constitutionally protected value hidden in Preambulation and historical Declaration reaffirming U.S. healthy democracy, our Holy Grail. Life liberty pursuit of happiness well-being During Enlightened Elder 1700s, and still largely our worldview today in deindustrializing MidWest sweltering South acid raining East and, most mystically, among empowered Californians and Oregonians and Washingtonians, Healthy democratic intent for integrity of humanity supports HEALTHY life, INTERDEPENDENT liberty, and win/win pursuit of resiliently SUSTAINABLE happiness, well-being, peace. This non-issue of our constitutional republic, with healthy, growing still-evolving dynamic democratic intent, purposed with sacred meaning to nurture and support HEALTHY life Becomes more obvious when considering what an "ethic of life" would look like if our eloquent ForeFathers and wise GrandMothers had UNhealthy life as an economic and political aspiration Any quality of life, regardless of how compromised pathological sinful demented unhappy joyless violent pathological ignorant greedy belligerent traumatized chronically stressed dissociated severed from a shared reality of cooperative peace and co-invested contentment Could not be a consistent ethic, or family morality, of HEALTHY life for all organic creations, Not preferential for Straight White Men, but a healthy polycultural democracy to support robust interdependent sustainable human lives of all cultures, inter-religious beliefs, compassionate feelings, nonviolent communications. More recently, ecologists and creation theologists and climatologists have added an interesting footnote to healthy democratic aspirations If we would have nutritionally politically economically healthy resilient lives, Then we need and want to extend our democratically appreciated agenda To include HEALTHY lives of oceans, forests, river systems, air, bioregions, food chain interdependent sustainable life-care systems. As far as I know, my Republican friends and family share this expectation of our governors, legislators, executives, court systems, to seek HEALTHY life care And, not so much PATHOLOGICAL diseased lack of caring for all Earth's sacred tribes, species, networks, cooperative win/win organically interdependent sustainable health-care systems.
