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. — 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. Yet he continuously gives his Assent to Laws to control, demean and destroy the citizens of this once great country. Essentially taking the law into His own hands believing that He is above it, setting forth policy and procedure which goes against the very foundation which this nation was founded.
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 takes away power from the states and makes what should be the states His own to further control and diminish the greatness of this nation. The control of the militia he has taken from the governors and placed under His own command for a start.
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. Selfishly for the ‘good’ of himself and his ‘allies’ he puts into policies which do nothing for the people serving only to make the citizenry even less proud of ‘home.’ Failing to be a good neighbor and enter into agreements with foreign countries that would benefit all He goes against the majority driving further the wedge between us and our allies. Look at His policies and stance on the environment (of which there are numerous atrocities), the looming arms race that He seems dead set on putting us into with His selfish bullying ways.
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. . There are no doubts to be had about His secret meetings and secret government hell bent on the ruination of this country. The SPP, the NAU just to name a couple.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. Like a coward he makes cabinet posts while Congress is out of session seeking to avoid the conflict and opposition that he knows he will undoubtedly meet. His ‘declaration of war’ against countries without the backing of the Congress, again proving that He feels his above the law.
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 mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. One merely need take a look at the State of the Union today and can see that similarly the very same is true today.
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. Instead of preventing the ‘population of these States, He seeks to overrun the country with ‘foreigners’ at the risk of further demise of the citizens of this once great nation.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers. He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by putting by His Assent of laws that go against the law of the land. Again, showing his belief that he is above the law.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. His Will undoubtedly has been forced onto judges of this land in pursuit of His own agenda and purpose.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance. . Need you any proof and fact of this or do you have enough?
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. . Again, the facts should speak loudly enough on their own merit.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power. . Yes we know that martial law looms closely on the horizon for us unless severe and swift action is taken to prevent it.
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: . Unauthorized wiretaps for one. And the list goes on and on!
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: . Undoubtedly this must be true – who among us knows how many foreign (NATO, UN and Commercial) troops quarter among us. Which we must also add the paramilitary police forces amassing among us.
For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: . Or today, His ‘allies’ whom get caught with the hand in the cookie jar, or other places it should not be – Cheney, Gonzales for starter.
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: . In this day and time more like sending all our trade abroad while the masses in this once great country travel a path closer to demise.
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: . Unless you are ultra rich.
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury: . Just five words – Military Commissions Act of 2006
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences: . Or bringing those from abroad across the seas for the very same.
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 . IRAQ?
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: . Ah yes, the assaults are far too numerous to list here but they are all about us.
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. . The National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. . As we no doubt see daily on a multitude of fronts running the gambit against our freedoms and liberties not to mention our future!
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. . Yes, it can be seen, heard, felt and experienced daily.
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. . IRAQ – Blackwater?
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. . Paramilitary Police forces coming to do essentially the same thing.
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. . The true Truth Seekers and Patriots who are being made into the domestic terrorists of our own frontiers.
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. . And all of our petitions for redress fall on deaf ears of our elected officials whom seem content to ignore the PEOPLE and follow along with the script.
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. 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. . How this circle has widened in just over two hundreds years as His regime seeks to control and impoverish all countries.
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. . What are we waiting for??????
Just a few of my thoughts on the situation.
Kevin – Son of Liberty
I have heard/read stories like this for a long time. If a soldier dies in Germany (our military hospital) from wounds in Iraq how is he counted? What I've been able to gather is if the soldier dies and is on the ground in Iraq he is counted, if he is on the way to the hospital etc. he is not. The numbers seem awfully low based on time there etc. Do the numbers make sense?
Check out Blackwater as they have men on the ground doing soldiers work/duties that's why the number of soldiers is low, the gov. doesn't count mercenaries we pay for. Halliburton is not counted yet they cook meals, do laundry, deliver gas, etc. The number of people in support positions are not counted, but if it were WWII the numbers would be doubled or more, since all were military. I have heard over 100,000 plus people are in support positions if that's true then we have well over 200,000 people in Iraq being supported by our tax dollars. We pay mercenaries to protect Halliburton/others just for starters. You have to look into it for yourself.
26 million people live in Iraq and we have about 130,000 plus troops working 24/7. 3 shifts per day would be 43,000 on one shift without any days off, this is not taking out medical, pilots, mechanics, supply clerks, radio operators, file clerks etc. Does that sound reasonable? There are 12,000 uniformed police plus support people for 8 million in NY City. If my numbers are right based on Google info.
How many soldiers are actually on the ground trying to control an out of control country? Ask a soldier about the highly paid extra's or private company employees. The American people are getting ripped off. Public Private Partnerships (PPP) contractors or companies for profit don't do better jobs than the regular military and cost us more. Think it through. Their there for a profit and will cut corners and over charge where they can, they do. Its just another government diabolical. War is business and business is good. Are you aware of the revolving door at the Pentagon? Scam is to nice a word.
Listening to the radio while I'm typing, plus being dyslexic makes for hard work.
