In Congress, July 4, 1776 [2008The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen [fifty] united States of America... ~ Kent Welton

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another [ruling elite power], and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of [the democratic majority of] mankind requires that they should declare the causes [when ruling elites trample our democracy, and presidents lie us into war] which impel them to the separation.

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 [via local autonomy and bottom-up rule]. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed [with honest ballots], That whenever any Form of Government

[a ruling oligarchy] becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, [via a National Initiative process to override a corporate controlled Congress] laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them [the majority] shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness[ and remain free of control by money & capital].

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience heth shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer [without effective and peaceful means of real change] while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of [endless] abuses [corruption] and usurpations [independent bodies controlling majority and money], pursuing invariably the same Object [fleecing the public, and stealing public assets], evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism [GATT-NAFTA-NAU] , it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new [bottom-up] Guards for their future security.

Such has been the patient sufferance of these [states] Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King [Unitary Executive] of Great Britain [London control of USA and money] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny [and secretive top-down control] over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world [and not covered up by a ruling elite-owned media].

He has refused his Assent to Laws, [signing statements] the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. [ i.e., environment, health, oversight and human rights]

He has forbidden his Governors [states] to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance [ via a crony-filled federal government overriding state regulations], unless suspended in their operation [by signing statements and regulatory neglect] till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them [thru purposeful dismembering of government agencies].

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation [ and enfranchisement] of large districts of people [the vast wage-earning majority], unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation

[to "independent" ruling-elite appointed bodies] in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant [from the majority] from the depository of their [secreted] public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them [and ignoring congressional subpoenas] into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly [by signing statements and sheer defiance], for opposing with manly firmness his invasions [of Iraq adn Afghanistan] on the rights of the People.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected [maintaining the power of his oil-garchy]; whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation [unless you own media and money powers], have [not yet] returned to the People at large for their exercise [via National Inititative]; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without [ thru manufactured shock-doctrine terrorism], and convulsions within [via Wall Steet greed].

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 migration hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands [invading National parks].

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by [wilful disdain of Congress] refusing his Assent to Laws [ by signing statements] for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone [he alone nominates, Senate only rubber-stamp consents], for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices [Homeland Security], and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our People, and eat out their substance [via a forced free trade].

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies [Blackwater mercenaries] without the Consent of our legislature.

He has affected to render the [mercenary] Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution [GATT-NAFTA-NAU-FED], and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their acts of pretended [and secretly constructed] Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed [mercenary] troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, [and removing liability] from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these [or foreign] States:

For cutting off our Trade [balancing mechanisms and free tariff powers] with all parts of the world: [subjecting us to forced competition with the greater slave and undemocratic nations and powers].

For imposing taxes on us without our Consent [ by exploding the national debt via a deby-money borrow-and-spend tyranny]:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury [rendering and secret detentions]:

For transporting us beyond Seas [Guantanamo and secret prisons] to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province [Canada, Mexico], 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 [states] Colonies:

For taking away [and ignoring] our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws [habeaus corpus] , and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments [with top-down plutocratic power]:

For suspending [and effectively emasculating] our own Legislature, and declaring themselves invested with Power to legislate [ via fictional unitary executive powers and signing statements] for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated [and frustrated] Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection [ or purview] and waging War against us [us v. them/him].

He [Wall street and broken government] has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives [ and liberties] of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign [and domestic] Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy [ and torture] scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a [once] civilized nation.

He has constrained [detained] our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms [taken control of state militias] against their will and [forced them] to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands [in foreign lands].

He has [ by his misdeeds] excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian [ and Neo-Con Republican] Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble [ and Pelosian] terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury [ and arrogance]. A prince [of thieves], whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a [thoroughly corrupt] Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British [and ruling elite] brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their [indepedent, plutocratic, bodies] legislature to extend an unwarrantable [and unwanted] 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 [for the few], and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations which would inevitably interrupt [or force] our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity [and the vast majority]. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity which denounces [and motivates] our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the [corporate free] 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 [states] Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown [and ruling elite controlled government], 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 [according to the will of the wage-earning majority], 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.

We, the people of the United States, then and now...
