Fourth of July - Why Do We Celebrate?



unalienable rights.........all men........created equal.......endowed by their creator......life.....liberty..........the pursuit of happiness............with justice for all.........

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 to 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 shown 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............U.S. Declaration of Independence

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY TO ALL THOSE FREE, NEWLY FREE AND YEARNING TO BE FREE!!!!!!
