Preamble to the U.S. Declaration of Independence, 1776

Dec 27, 2012 | Posted by: DNF | Full story: www.elcivics.com

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 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.

You forgot a part:

"...that all men are created equal, except gays, that they are endowed by..."

Well it's a part that some people wish were there but isn't.

I've often thought that the prejudice anti-gay males display is partly the result of their lack of being endowed.

That's equal rights, not equal abilities...

So I guess equality doesn't apply to women either, which explains why it took them centuries to be able to vote & own property & refuse to have sex with every Tom/Dick/Harry.

As great as our "founding fathers" were, the simply fact they were all "fathers" indicates they were limited by the society in which they lived.

They had the right idea- equality- they just erred in their implementation of said idea.

Agreed.

It's not a coincidence that those homophobes most worried about gays ogling them in the showers are always short, fat, ugly, & have a little pecker.

The good looking well built well hung guys never worried about it; in fact most would take being ogled by anyone- guy or girl- to be a compliment.

It does make one wonder about all the fuss certain men made about separate showers if DADT was repealed.

Guess they didn't want their 'little secret' becoming public knowledge.

I used to just tell them to assume everyone they're currently showering with is gay. Problem solved.

The Declaration of Independence nowhere gives a group of people the right to destroy what it sought to create.

Ummm, that's EXACTLY what the Declaration of Independence did.

If our govt becomes oppressive we have the right & obligation to change it.

It has.

We are.

Spoken like a true selfish narcissist. This IS just exactly what the zionists want and that is you rationalizing your perversions to further deteriorate the true intention, foundation, definition, and institution of marriage.
You are a traitor.
Marriage is whatever we say it is.

If you don't like it, I don't really give a crap.

What you label as government "oppression" is actually government acting in a responsible way, taking necessary steps to preseve society.

We have to give them a break. They were thinking new thoughts, a paradigm that hadn't existed yet.

Where is "preserve society" listed in the Preamble (mandate) to the Constitution ?
