I have this posted on my myspace profile and absolutely no hits, lets see what happens here, and NO im not out for the flag count nor am I out for the top list, I personally love my freedoms, love being american and believe we are loosing our rights. The Declaration speaks volumes if you read it and then realize what is happening and what we are loosing.

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration
 
 
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal statiorn to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
of the thirteen united States of America

Perhaps an updated version is in order? One that outlines the current situation?

EDIT: Is that what we need? Do we need to write a new declaration?
edit on 4-12-2010 by sonofliberty1776 because: (no reason given)

When I created this post I did not consider my time and for this i apoklogize. Let me explain. I gained custody of my 8 year old male grandchild this past june. we all know children especially boys are time consumming. Then there is the holiday. Last night was the company xmas party. Today we are going to put up the fake tree decorate ect..ect. with my best effort I will reply as I find time.

If any parts of the declaration would need changed maybe the words regarding the brits as they have no threats to america know, that is all i could consider. I have just a few minutes so I will address one matter for know. The taxes, when have us the citizen ever agreed with THEM? We continuely change our government because we do not agree with their tax policy, yet They never listen to us. They go behind closed doors and pass their secret earmarks which in turn become our taxes, they wage wars we do not agree on which in turn become our taxes, They give tax breaks to the rich and let the lower income pay more taxes which we do not agree on. They hold the House hostage until their agenda is met. They would rather let the citizen loose everything because their greedy agendas MUST be met.

peace to us all we need it

We as a people need to brave up, stand together and overturn the government. This IS our American right. we cannot be arrested ( well maybe arrested but i believe would get plenty of legal representation) for doing our patriotic duties. I believe most want the change we need just a few to start the" as the great Declaration of Indepedance" so greatly states REVOLT and overturn the corrupted government, with a few the mass will follow. One cannot do it alone

peace to us all we need it

Let me give a reality check to my fellow americans. Try crossing into mexico after dark, I believe it is somewhere between 6:00pm and 9:00pm ( Im thinking more like 6:00pm) the borders are "CLOSED" they are manned with.....border patrol. this came to my attention in the summer of 2008, my husband and I were going night fishing on a boarder area the boarder police, im laughing the boarder patrol were at the american side of the bridge. I asked my husband to stop and walked up to the controlling man asked whats up with blocking the border entrance, he said its closed until 6:00 am, I asked why, he became agrevated asked me to move on. I did being I decided to investigate, which all I have found is, it has been closed at dark sense 9-11 for our safety, this is all the information i could find..
I would really like ventura to take this one

peace to us all we need it

Oh no, I do not mean rewriting the body of it. It is perfect as is. I agree 100%. I was referring to the grievances section. Adding and updating for the grievances of our time. Sorry for the confusion.

Bravo!

There are an abundance of these nowadays, and I'm all for it!

There are personal withdrawals of consent kurtkallenbach.wordpress.com...
And if you Google "Redeclaration of Independence" you'll find an abundant return www.google.com...

The reemergence of the Continental Congress www.freerepublic.com...
Committees of Safety www.committeesofsafety.org...
Citizen Marksmanship via Appleseed Project www.appleseedinfo.org...

What we have here today is the spawning ground of change. Big change. Unfortunately, history has taught us that the most common application is violent, but it's not entirely necessary. That "Crash JP Morgan Buy Physical Silver" campaign is a very effective nonviolent alternative operation.

Like the song says though, "Something's happening here... what it is, ain't exactly clear... there's a man with a gun over there, telling me I've got to beware..."

An updated declarative statement delivered to every con-man, Senzors seat holder and the Prez may be what's needed. It might open their eyes to the fact that their game is up and everyone knows how bad they're pillaging. The reality of it is though that most won't really understand what's going on until it smacks them in the face, when people can't put food on the table. Part of the bigger problem is that while they're hoarding money and assets, big companies are really the medium they are using to screw the people.

Ok I am not sure if I am understanding this correctly, maybe I am, The Personel WIthdrawals of Consent . How I am understanding this is, The people are withdrawaling their american citizenship until the government returns to what our great Declaration of Independance would give us as rights? If this is what is happening, ( im not sure if i read this correctly) the government could imprison them, evict them from this country, ect....Im going on how i am understanding this document. Personally I want to overturn this corrupted government ( our rights as staed in the declaration)and bring an entire new government into place. So please if i read it wrong set me straight...thank you
peace to us all we need it

Regarding freepublic.com. I personally do not agree with a alternate government this would be a disasterous war. Besides the fact it declares it stands by the Declaration yet it bluntenly trys to change it. Also Why would I want state official to be the heads of my new government when infact more of them the not are just as guilty and corrupt as the know standing treasonous government we already have. SO no I do not side with this concept

The .org page was good I was about to send a e-mail when my eye caught a troubling sponser which forced my right finger to push the pointer to that X on the upper right corner of the page and click the page left. Fox as with alol media sorces are traders to the american citizens so deeply committed, or maybe enslaved to the government I would never be part of a .org anything with media connected...thanks for your information, however what I hope to accomplish is overturning the current government with all new bodies in the entire bodies of the government. From President to Senate to Congress, House of Representatives, The Caucases, and any other branch I missed, ALL of them. Put people in who never been in office. Who love OUR country first.countrys fall and Countrys rise, let us raise our country back to her feet again Before it is to late. We are running out of time my fellow americans. This is scarry yes it is. But we can do it. We are AMERICANS
Peace to us all we need it

Im not asking for a revolution, Im asking to do what Our Great Decloaration gave us the right to do
OVERTURN THE TYRANY AND MAKE A NEW GOVERNMENT
