When in the course of human events...

Could you imagine the courage these men had??? The ideas...much less the courage to tell the largest empire in the world because of their disrespect for these ideas they are no longer worthy to rule you...just unfathomable courage, genius, and insanity.



The Declaration of Independence of the Thirteen Colonies
Presented by the Indiana University School of Law—Bloomington

The Declaration of Independence of the Thirteen Colonies
In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

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 [George III] 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.

Peace to you and yours Mr. Byrne. I don,t know if you have heard of this guy www.leonardclark.com/blog/
He is an MP in Iraq.Only recently did he reveal his name and position. It did not take long for the brutal boot to come down. If you would like to hear a message in his own voice go down to the last july 4th entry. In the last voicemail he tells about being pulled in and ordered to cease and desist.

The type of leadership you and Mr. Clark demonstrate are what we need to make a differance.

Remember the purple band aids the fascists ore at their hatefest in New York where they nominated Bush?

The Host speaker was Gov. Pukaki.
