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.

(i hope it's okay to post this last bit...if not, let me know, and i'll remove it, i just found it meaningful...)

"Pass it on... this is who we are and what we started as a nation... no matter if we are a first nations people, descended from the original colonists, descended from slaves or descended from people all over the world who came looking for a better life. This is who we are and what we should be again, because damn if we aren't heading into the fire from which this was born." - Wynkat1313

Politics and professional wrestling, those who think that either is real or important deserves the pity they get.
