Government of the People, By the People, For the People

“Government of the people, by the people, for the people”… remember these words from Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address?  Has it now become, “Government fuck the people”?

The Declaration of Independence says

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

I’m just saying…

[…]

  4. It should read: “Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to realize all leaders are corrupt and unnecessary.”

    No more Emperors…

  5. You might want to look at the Addendum to my post, written back in April on Thomas Jefferson’s birthday, for some specifics from the Declaration of Independence. It’s as if Jefferson had predicted the Bush administration.

  6. Thanks, Exterminator, I did read your post. I suppose Jefferson, being the wise man he was, figured sooner or later some idiot (operated by an evil puppet master) would manage to become president.
