Declaration

We hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable; that all men are created equal and independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent and inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness;

That to secure these ends, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government shall become destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying it's foundation on such principles and organizing it's powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.
From the “Original Rough Draught” of the Declaration of Independence, 1776. More on the Declaration here.

Have a great Fourth of July.

I wish someone would explain to Bush, Rumsfeld, Hatch and their criminal co-conspirators what the phrase "all men are created equal ..." means.

2006 and 2008 cannot come soon enough.
