Again: "Whenver 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..."
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
Our government has not sought our consent honestly. It has lied us into a war, is perhaps on the verge of lying us into another. Our government has squandered our money, turning a large surplus into an unprecedented deficit. Our government regularly violates the First Amendment by barring non-sympathetic citizens from attending meetings attended by the President -- meetings paid for with your tax dollars, a President living off a paycheck coming out of your tax dollars.
Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness...
Life -- taken from over 1500 young American soldiers on the basis of a lie.
Liberty -- taken from untold thousands of American citizens and residents who have been "disappeared," hauled off to secret prisons on secret charges to face secret tribunals, a perversion of everything that this country was founded on.
Pursuit of Happiness -- as long as your definition of "happiness" fits the government's. Forget happiness if you're gay; forget it if you prefer organic mind-altering chemicals to those found in a pharmacy or liquor store; forget it if you happen to like certain sexual acts between consenting adults in certain states; forget it if your name has a middle Eastern ring to it or if you hold certain political viewpoints; forget it if you're not one of them>, one of the wealthy governing class. Pursue your happiness if you're a billionaire getting a giant tax cut. All others can please fuck off.
Enough. The excesses of this government make King George III look like a piker. King George IV is an arrogant upstart. Where Bill Clinton was Augustus Caesar, we could expected Tiberias to follow. Instead, they skipped a rung and stuck us with Caligula.
How soon will George IV appoint his horse to a cabinet position? Oh -- that's right. Mr. Cowboy has never ridden a horse.
...it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government
It is the Right and the Duty. Now that this government has been proven, beyond all doubt, to have lied us into an invasion of a sovreign nation under the pretense of waging a war of defense, they are rogues. They do not deserve the power they have been given, and they need to learn that the people can take it back.
Time to start lobbying your government officials -- senators and representatives. If they could impeach a President over a harmless blowjob, then they can convict a President over lying us into a quagmire. If they don't have the balls to start the process, they can be impeached, recalled or voted out of office. But if they've been paying attention to any national polls lately, they could easily see that the tide is turning, opinion is rapidly shifting away from the scorpions in the cupboard; time is chiselling away their sting.
Right now, you have your life -- if you're reading this. But kiss your liberty and happiness good-bye, if you haven't lost either or both already -- unless you're willing to stand up, speak out, and legally bring this nightmare to an end and the perpetrators to justice.
Germany. 1938. No one said a word.
America. 2005. What's it gonna be?
