being a veteran for over 20 years, being such that and seeing history and being part of history i feel my country is being lost to these beliefs i believe as these men do and that is freedom, this government is being railroaded into a socialism and big government and as a veteran i feel we need to get back to our grassroots and impeach all these so call reps, starting with this president with respect

"We the People" let your voices be heard - especially to your government representatives. Use it or loose it - it's what shaped our country and ignited the desire to frame a Constitution that protects your right to do so. Do your own research - form your own opinions - and let your voice be heard!

I wish more people would read the last line to get a better understanding of what we pledge to each other and why we should share the wealth of this great nation and the need for some of the taxes. I'll copy it here for you that cared to read my thoughts it ends as follows: — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Brian Quincy Cooper, Myrtle Beach, SC 42 [04-03-2009]

Mr. Jefferson would be distraught at what this country has degenerated into. Life is a struggle, Liberty is a fleeting dream, and the Pursuit of Happiness is near impossible. Our government no longer represents the people---it has become an entity unto itself. The PEOPLE are tired of this 'Government of the government, by the government, for the government.' Time to take our rights back from those who would be kings.
Carol Koury, Central New York State [04-03-2009]

Something to live by: “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.”

The Declaration is one of the greatest documents ever written, now under assault by of all things, the very government that was founded on its principles. Let's hope and pray to God, the One on whose principles and laws this country was built, that this country will be brought back, wisely, under His sovereignty, so we might benefit from His wisdom and guidance, not the guidance of ungodly individuals who want to deny His existence.

I believe that our founding fathers' vision and declaration of independence is at risk with the very liberal president we have elected in 2008. The very principles in which our country achieved its freedom is in jeopardy, and I can only hope that we the people fight to preserve our freedom and country.

KIM COLE [03-29-2009] »»»

Every American child of school age should be indoctrinated - yes, indoctrinated - with the truths contained in the Declaration of Independence. Our govt. has become the modern version of King George III. For example, the grievance against the King concerning the erecting of a multitude of new offices ansending hither (here) swarms of officers (bureaucrats) to harass our people (through regulations) and eat out their substance (through taxes), is this not what our government has become??! Americans, WAKE UP!
Michael C. Vidic [03-29-2009] »»»

In the last paragraph of the Declaration, it reads "of the united States of America,". It should say "of the United States of America,". The difference is a capitalized U in United States... Hope this gets corrected.

Amazing how our very nation was founded on relying on Divine providence, and yet it is now illegal to pray to that Divine Providence in public or have any public images or statues confirming the very foundation of this nations reliance on Divine Providence. It is odd how the very last statement or summation of this great document states, "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor." It is also stated we are created, and that we are created by the God of Nature, and yet, we teach evolution in our schools as if it were fact, when in fact this idea is a theory and has never been confirmed to be truth, yet we teach it as truth. George Washington stated in his first inargual speach, "...we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained..."

I feel this important part of our history has been lost and the mind set of it has been forgotten. We as a country have become selfish as well as our morals been misprioratized. It would be benifical for not just the people of America, but especially ALL of the so called Government Politicans,including our President to actually read this document, UNDERSTAND IT, RETAIN IT,and actually put it to PRACTICE!

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury: err..what does this all means?does this refer to the british action or the US itself?

This is a very nice site and one all citizens of the United States should spend time on. It is our fundamental lack of understanding as a country of what these documents really mean and/or lack of awareness they even exists within the general, "sound bite" populace that causes increasing concern with each passing year.

My intentions are to read these documents and share what they say to others as this country was set up as a Republic, not a Democracy. We are becoming more socilalistic than what the USSR was. It is sad what is going on.

I had to memorize this in 5th grade, and part of it is still stuck in my brain. Thomas Jefferson was big on run-on sentences, but it's wonderfully well-written, despite the fact that few parts of Jefferson's original draft are still visible.
