Kevin L.Heckman, Roscoe ILLINOIS 52 [12-29-2011] »»»

I like the last paragraph becuase it stated that the colonies had "a RIGHT to be free from the state of Great Britian". Intresting!

I think the Declaration of Independence was written to defend the self evident truth that all people are created equally and have certain rights.I think the meaning of it is probally for remembrance and freedom.

The Declaration of Independence says everyone is created equal with rights to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." How have the Constitution and the Bill of Rights made it possible for Americans to enjoy these rights?

The Declaration of Independence I think was the best thing. It gave more rights to more people. Let people do more of what they wanted to do.

Declaration of Independence. intent It was indented for the people to have some rights over their lives money and land . Although we all need rules. Without them this world would be unbearable to live in. It also was indented for everyone to be treated fairly. But with greed in man's heart there will always be war. It was indented the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God. meaning I'll start again as I finished the last paragraph, Laws of Nature and of Nature's God. with God all thing are possible. I'll let it speak for its self. 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. importance pursuit of Happiness. 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. my opinion that when man take his eyes off of self and puts in on God almighty the creator of the heavens and the earth everything else will fall into place . as the word of God speaks man should follow God commandments but choose to follow their pride

anonymous [11-27-2011] »»»

I am enjoying the site very much, learning a lot and filling in holes in my education and at times my memory of things once learned and later forgotten. I do think that the site would benefit from some proofreading. There are a number of spelling and grammatical mistakes that are jarring and for some zealous readers might indicate a carelessness that calls into question the thoroughness or thoughtfulness of the articles.

Terrific site. It engaged me all morning. The biographies of the signers, as well as the text re: the French and Indian War were particularly enlightening.
marianne [11-21-2011] »»»

weird that they say "We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal" yet in the constitution the come of same men write that all of the white population, only 1/3 of the slave population, and none of the native american population get counted.

It is a great pleasure and joy to know the history of the men who signed the declaration of independence. While this site only hits on some of the information it sparks your interest to learn more. Take advantage of the rich history. and don't be fooled into thinking the document is some paper with no life. Your freedom is based on this foundation. God Bless America.
