Self-Evident Truths

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.

I posted the Declaration of Independance last week. I hadn’t read it or the Constitution in a very long time. If you haven’t read them either, why not? The first is moving in ways I find hard to explain. “… deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” – do you feel like you’ve given your consent to be governed? If not, come check us out, and see what we’re trying to do to take back the system.
