School Bars Declaration Of Independence

School Bars Declaration Of Independence

This is just silly. And I don’t mean in the “funny” sense of the word, either. Seperation of church & state is one thing (a good thing, certainly)… but… c’mon, it’s the freaking DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE!!

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, 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 mankind requires that they should declare the causes 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.–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, 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 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 which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. 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.

  1. Organic basicaly means it can never be changed. The US Constitution (USC) is not organic law. Plus; please note, the Declaration of Independence (DoI) is the supreme law of this land’s People and is above the USC. From a proper status reference with respect to the United States Code, the use of organic is correct. From the point of the Sovereign makers of the DoI and the subordinate USC, the use of the term organic law may be debated.

    Means this current status quote court system is flawed and more crooked than a dog’s hind leg.

    If you wish to contact me via email I will send you some of my work files which will more fully give details. The current system has to keep getting more corrupt, because it has to keep trying to defend mistakes made long ago.
