The Declaration of Independence
Really stop and read that. If you have to, there is no shame in using a dictionary to make sure you are clear in understanding the words. This
document is often repeated and referenced by no one takes the time to really read it. Did you know that this document also listed the REASONS why the
Colonies wanted to break away from English rule?
The signing of this document was a death sentence for treason to every single signature on it. By today's standards, these men are all "terrorist",
but how ironic that these "terrorist" were responsible for creating a rule of law that every single person today has enjoyed for over 200 years.
Yet now some will tell you that these documents are outdated. They are irrelevant. They simply do not apply in a modern world.
I say BS! They are far from outdated, they are most certainly relevant, and they apply just as much today as they did over 200 years ago. The problems
we face today are not new. These are old world problems. Tyrants have been around for thousands of years. Since the beginning of man, battles have
waged on for the few to have power over the many. To dictate how the masses live, while supporting the embellished lifestyles of the few who govern
over them. Our problems are nothing new, they have been around since the dawn of man. So ask me again if I think the Constitution, the Bill of
Rights, or the Declaration of Independence is outdated- No! It's old world solutions, to old world problems.
Just look at a FEW of the reasons our Founding Fathers fought and died for Independence.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
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 harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
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:
In reference to troops being used against the people. In today's world, I believe this describes our Police Forces.
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
NDAA Anyone? Or perhaps, FAMILY COURT?
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
The list continues on, those are just a few of my favorites. Again, click the link and READ the document.
The Founding Fathers of this Country would be ashamed of all us today for the things we are putting up with and we should be ashamed of ourselves.
Each and every one of us.
But let's ignore all that, let us tell people run to the polls and cast a vote for Dumb or Dumber and if they do not, then tell them they have no
right to complain. Tell me, how well has that worked for us so far?
Do the whole world a favor. STAY HOME on "Election Day". If you truly believe you are being forced to choose between the lesser of two evils, STAY
HOME! If you truly believe that your Government is failing you, STAY HOME! If you truly believe that your Government is corrupt to the core and cares
not for your interest, STAY HOME! Stay home and declare this Government illegitimate and show that it has no power over you, and then complain as
loudly as you can. Maybe in another 4 years, a few more will join you until we are the majority. Then we can affect the change we so desperately need.
I will put away my soapbox now.
