And please take a few minutes to sit down and actually read the Declaration of Independence - it's well worth a read every 4th, and to read aloud if you have children. Yes, you know all about the "all men are created equal" and "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" parts. But what follows is even more important:
"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..."
This is truly revolutionary stuff, folks! It took a lot of courage to sign this declaration, to which the Founders pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. Is there anyone among today's politicians who would do the same?
