We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, (GOP Rebellion Stops Voting Rights Act) that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are

Life (Iraqis bound and executed by American soldiers),

Liberty
(Guantanamo)

and the pursuit of Happiness....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.

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.

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.

For offenses against the People of the United States of America and the People of Iraq, President George Bush and his party stand accused before the Nations of the World and Almighty God. As it was 230 years ago, so shall it be tomorrow.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Adding in the offenses that the Iraqi (0+ / 0-)

    people have suffered:

    Cutting off our trade

    Establishing an arbitrary government

    Enlarging its boundaries to introduce absolute rule

    Declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for all of us

    Waging war on us

    Burnt our towns and destroyed the life of our people

    Transporting large armies.

    The hope of democracy is not dead. The signers put body and soul on the line to write this document. It is not out of date nor irrelevant in the 21st century. Its about free people giving consent to be governed not the other way around.

    Thanks for the great diary on this Independence Day.
