“Declaration of Independence…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” …if there is something wrong it is our right, it is their duty to do something about it!
