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.



Happy Independence Day to All!

And Happy Birthday, America!

What a tremendous responsibility! I wonder how many of us have the strength and courage it would take to fulfill that responsibility?

Happy Birthday American and Happy Holiday everyone! I hope you are enjoying your families and/or friends!

Is a 57.00 dollar fee for placing a geocache absolute Despotism? :twisted: Sorry, so sorry, I couldn't help myself. :D

To charge $57.00 to place a cache should be unconstitutional based on the Right to Pursue Happiness.

Sorry, but the Declaration of Independence is NOT the Constitution. And the pursuit of happiness is not in the Bill of Rights!


Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes;

Somehow, with the ongoing War on Terror, the lack of a national energy policy, a struggling economy, and a Social Security system on the brink of collapse, I find the issue of a fee on geocaches to be pretty "light and transient"!

We STILL have a GREAT country.
