QUOTE IS OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, OUR FOREFATHERS DECLARED IT, PLEASE READ OBSERVATION AFTER, HAVE A GOOD ONE…
Asserts as a matter of Natural Law the ability of a people to assume political independence; acknowledges that the grounds for such independence must be reasonable, and therefore explicable, and ought to be explained.
|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.”
Outlines a general philosophy of government that justifies revolution when government harms natural rights.
|“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.”|
A bill of particulars documenting the king’s “repeated injuries and usurpations” of the Americans’ rights and liberties.
|“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 of 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 meantime 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.”|
Describes the colonists’ attempts to inform and warn the British people of the king’s injustice, and the British people’s failure to act. Even so, it affirms the colonists’ ties to the British as “brethren.”
|“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.”|
This section essentially finishes the case for independence. The conditions that justified revolution have been shown.
|“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.”|
The signers assert that there exist conditions under which people must change their government, that the British have produced such conditions and, by necessity, the colonies must throw off political ties with the British Crown and become independent states. The conclusion contains, at its core, the Lee Resolution that had been passed on July 2.
|“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.”|
The first and most famous signature on the engrossed copy was that of John Hancock, President of the Continental Congress. Two future presidents (Thomas Jefferson and John Adams) and a father and great-grandfather of two other presidents (Benjamin Harrison V) were among the signatories. Edward Rutledge (age 26) was the youngest signer, and Benjamin Franklin(age 70) was the oldest signer. The fifty-six signers of the Declaration represented the new states as follows (from north to south):

Lets call it what it is – it is not capitalism or communism – those are the opposing names of each side of the coin. What shall we call the coin??? Central bankism??? Globalism??? Technocracy??? Inverted Corporate Totalitarianism??? None are derived or support as a societal component the principles of FREEDOM. How about Free Markets derived from Constitutional principles of These United States – simple huh??? Remember that???
First and foremost I am an American before I am a Republican or a Democrat. The principles of Freedom come before economic driven parties. Note: If one party wins this pseudo-war – when the smoke clears – what is left ??? A one party rule. Which is no longer American. That result or outcome “victory” is a form of despotism wether it be Republican 1 party “fascism” or Democrat 1 party “communism” ( the labels of 2 modes of centralized economic structure – again 2 sides of the same coin capitalism/communism taste great/less filling – the broken record plays the 24/7 commercial runs to keep the lie/con afloat ) Separation of powers IS a foundation principle. One party can not rule These United States because in principle – THE TRUTH – in a 1 party rule system of government We the People will cease to be These United States of America…
Currently the Republican & Democratic parties are part of a two sided coin held in the hand of a new Global Despot. The Global Corporation ( * “inverted totalitarianism”) These United States were born in the Declaration of our inalienable rights endowed by the creator which shined the light of truth on the tyrannical belief system and rule and enforcement of Divine right in which King George the III ruled the British Empire backed by the private central bank of London. We declared our Freedom and in 1776 won a fight in which the British military left American shores. Though perhaps they did not give up the war perhaps they turned the tools of leverage and economic strategy on We the people. Today the Declaration of FREEDOM our fore fathers yelled and penned and bled for is muzzled with cloth masks, social distancing, check points, z papers please, mandated by arbitrary law of the new Global corporate crown pulling the levers of the Synthetic Monkeys who hold public office ( servants of We the People??? ). With out playing the personality game of judgement our fellow Americans our fellow humans our trusted servants have been corrupted by the tools of power ( $$$ ) they act from their own avarace and not from the derived principles of These United States of America. It is not simply all their fault ( point finger at him ) because we applauded their avarice as long as we were not to far from the table when ($$$) it was our turn. We are all human and We all have flaws and We all fall short. That is what our Constitution is based on … the Constitution of the true nature of human beings – all of us – We the People are all flawed. Hence CHECKS AND BALANCES – SEPARATION OF POWERS – TERM LIMITS- SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE- THESE UNITED STATES DO NOT NEED A RESET. WE NEED TO PUT THE CENTRALIZED ECONOMY BACK IN ITS PROPER PLACE- OUR CONSTITUTION IS NOT FLAWED IT IS OF NATURAL LAW- THE ECONOMIC COMPONENT OF OUR SOCIETY WAS ALLOWED TO TURN OUR COUNTRY ON ITS HEAD ALLOWED FOREIGN NATIONS IN THE CORRIDORS OF OUR MILITARY BRANCHES – ALLOWED SEATS CONGRESSIONAL BRANCHES – INTO THE HALLS OF THE WHITE HOUSE- A SEAT IN THE OVAL OFFICE- AND THE EAR OF THE PRESIDENCY – THEY ARE RE-ESTABLISHING THE BINDING RULE WE FOUGHT AGAINST- THIS IS A NEW 2.0 VERSION OF DIVINE RIGHT- TIME TO STAND READ THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE- IT IS YOU… WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO STAND AND BE VIGILANT. WE THE PEOPLE HAVE WET THE BEEK A BIT TO MUCH AND HAVE F*CKED AND S*CKED OUR WAY TO THE FOUNDATION OF THESE UNITED STATES AND THE GLOBALISTS ARE NOW STRIPPING IT FOR COPPER AS AMERICANS WAIT FOR THE CRUMBS ($$$) TO FALL DOWN THEIR WAY (VIA DIRECT DEPOSIT)… LETS FACE IT… LETS OWN UP TO WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE …AND MAKE IT RIGHT… FREEDOM IS NOT OURS TO SQUANDER…AMERICA’S CHILDREN HAVE BEEN SOLD OUT – PUT INTO 22 TRILLION DOLLARS $$$ OF DEBT AS OUR LEADERS SAY THE ECONOMY IS GOOD. HOMELAND SECURITY GAURDS ARE RECEIVING PENSIONS AND HEALTH CARE AS THEY CONTINUE WRITING THE DEBT ON THE BACKS OF CHILDREN AND NOW PRE-EMTIVE CYBER SECURITY GAURDS AND BIO SECURITY GAURDS HEALTH SECURITY GAURDS – SOME OF THESE FOREIGN COMPANIES WHO ARE NOW TODAY ENJOYING REAPING THE BENEFITS THE ENTITLEMENTS OF THEIR HOMELAND SECURITY GOVERNMENT PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS THAT OUR, YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE BURDENED TO PAY TOMORROW. (HOW MUCH OF YOUR TAX DOLLARS ARE THEY GETTIN TODAY???) – ALL THE WHILE COMPLAINING ABOUT UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS BREAKING THEIR ASS WORKING IN THE SUN FOR 10 HOURS – SOMETHING WRONG HERE … BAILING OUT TO PRIVATE AIRLINE COMPANIES PRIVATE BANKS ON THE BACKS OF CHILDREN NOT OUT OF GRADE SCHOOL OR THE WOMB. HOW CAN ANY WORK BE BAD??? I’LL TELL YOU WHEN… WHEN THE AMERICAN WORKERS ACCEPTED SO MUCH CONVENIENCE THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS THEM BY THE SHORT ONES AND THE IRS IS ROBBING THEM BLIND SO INSTEAD OF CALLING OUT THE REAL PROBLEM THEY ARE CALLING OUT UNDOCUMENTED WORKER- WORK IS GOOD IT IS HEALTHY- FREE-MARKETS ARE HEALTHY- A DAY OF HONEST WORK FOR A DAY OF HONEST PAY IS GOOD. SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT HEALTHCARE PRIVATE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY PARTNERSHIPS DONT SEEM TO BE WORKING OUT- THE GOVERNMENTAL SOCIALISTIC PENSION AND WALL STREET ALLIANCE PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP MAY BE PROBLEMATIC. AN HONEST HARD DAYS WORK FOR AN HONEST PAYMENT IN HARD CASH- THAT’S JUST AMERICAN…
