Long May She Wave...

The Declaration of Independence
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 area created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. ---
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
May the principles upon which this country was founded continue unadulterated by those who seek to destroy the freedoms that our Founding Fathers envisioned for us.

they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
