This is boring to us, right? But we will memorize sports stats, pop culture, etc etc etc, god forbid you even know why this country was started.
Our govt has become the new king and queen, just look at how the douche in charge walks around, all of them with the air of superiority, and there let them eat cake attitude.
This document listed the 28 reasons we declared Independence and choose to go to war with the greatest empire of its day. This is the most beautiful thing I have ever read, read this like it’s personal, read it like it was written for you because it was.
Do you realize the govt does not give us our rights, they are unalienable, do you know what that means? not transferable to another or not capable of being taken away or denied; unfuckingalienable.
This is us telling the crown to go fuck itself and the horse it rode in on. Often you will hear the media, politicions etc spouting the Decleration, whats intresting is they never draw the parrels
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 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. So many choices here where do we even start
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. Hasn’t douche done this to Florida?
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. Sounds like they are guilty of this one
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. Transparency anyone? JFK files alone, FBI, Jan 6th footage, on and on we can go.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. I count election fraud in this one
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 meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. The more you read the more it sounds like they are talking about today.
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. We are the foreigners have you not realized that yet?
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers. It gets depressing and you want to stop reading right?
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. Another that sounds like it’s happening again right now, think about it.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance. 23 million govt workers.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. No the govt doesn’t weaponize its army against us, ahh you think its only an armed army, interesting.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power. As it has become and is today.
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: We just do not have the time or space to list the ways.
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: You don’t see it? Jan 6th alone, say her name Ashley Babbit.
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: Say her name, Ashley Babbit
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: Hmm Keystone pipeline 1st thing that comes to mind
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: Is any comment needed for this?
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury: You’re shitting me?
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences: They love to start wars don’t they?
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: I am one American that believes our govt is doing this, another list that’s too long for here.
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: If you don’t see this one there is no fucking hope for you.
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. Wake up
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. You don’t think they have declared war with us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. They have over and over again, last example summer 2020.
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. No they don’t do this, no fucking way
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. Again this is happening right before our eyes.
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 Brittish 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.
If all 330 million of us knew this document they could not get away with any of it.
Up the rebels
