More About: Declaration of Independence

Declaration of Independence: Read it, bitches!

George Soros and Bill Moyers want you to read the "Declaration of Independence" today and reflect on it.  Well, that is what they said---I'm fairly certain they hope you actually don't read this document we celebrate today.  It is a declaration of war on a government.  On all but one type of government.  And this declaration is as valid on the present government as it was on the government of King George.  I am struck that with few modifications this could have been written to King Bush the Second or King Obama from the Iraqi people or the Afghani people.

Are there any Americans left to read it?

Or are they too busy waving the American flag.  Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.  Tearfully singing with their hand over their heart the Star Spangled Banner or America the Beautiful while military jet fighter-bombers stream overhead.  Praying to Jesus to protect the President of the United States.  Gorging themselves into a stupor on hamburgers and hot dogs, while watching the latest propaganda of their brave children "over there" enjoying their 4th of July holiday protecting Amerika from the dark man.  Just kicking back with a beer or four awaiting the fireworks display that if they themselves lit a few off would get them arrested.


IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

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 station 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 has shown 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 endeavored 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 offenses:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring 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 complete 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 endeavored 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.

Hi, JJ. The answer to your question is similar to the way the Constitution has legitimacy with regard to any of our elected and appointed Government officials. There is no legitimacy, and they don't become Government officials, until they take the Oath of Office. It is their promise to uphold the Constitution that creates the legitimacy-relationship between Government and the Constitution.

What about you personally? It is up to you to accept or reject the tenets of the Declaration.

The real question should be, "How does the perceive legitimacy of the Declaration by other people affect me?" You can go to the South Pole, all alone if you want, and you will find the effects of the Declaration reaching you there. Some places you go on earth may be affected very little by the Declaration. But because of the people who accept it as legit, you will find the effects of the Declaration felt around the world.

How does a document, signed over two hundred years ago by people who had no authority to act on my behalf, have any legitimacy?

Bravo, bravo, JV! Take them down for and in behalf of our editorially abused reading public. Let the public thank you with a standing ovation! You hear my catcall of appreciation in the public’s round of applause!

This display of nonsense, pointless, meaningless language and behavior is emblematic of anti-Government activists with a dangerous militia mentality. Gammill said that the Declaration of Independence is "as valid on the present government as it was on the government of King George." Saying this, the mind is indiscrete and doesn’t think well …this mediocre mind is just run by rebellious emotion.

Gammill and his likes’ declaration of independence from and against the Federal Government is invalid – it is absolutely NOT valid! The U.S. Federal Government, is NOT "King George", for heavens’ sake! Thinking and believing that the American Government is "King George" is DELUSIONAL. In fact only terrorists would declare Independence from the U.S. Federal Government, and create their own separate government.

Let’s not play around this unimpeachable truth of how terrorist mentality works, as Gammill’s mind plays it out in his comment.

In the front page, Christine Smith wrote her Independence Day? She wonders: "Why celebrate the leaving of one empire for the making of another?"

She is right – to the same degree of stupidity!
