Excerpt from Declaration of Independence:

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 usurpation, 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.

 

Keep that in mind as we celebrate our independence. Of course in today’s world such a document as the Declaration of Independence would be seen by political correctness and Government to be hate speech and a terrorist document… We always remember our constitution, but our Declaration of Independence and list of Grievances to King George III fit in today’s situation almost as perfectly as it originally did to the British Monarchy during that time.
