I Declare! Windspike's Independence Day Query

I was re-reading the Declaration of Independence and found it to be perfectly salient for today's situation. In fact, there are times when I feel like a colonist being persecuted by some far off government to which I have no fair representation. This leads me to today's set of questions for the blogisphere. Let's call these...drum roll please:

Windspike's Independency Day Query
  • Might it be time for a new declaration of independence?

  • And if so, what would you write in it?

  • Or, should we simply print copies of the 1776 version and sign our names with a letter to the president stipulating that we insist he abide by it?

I vote for the third choice but also be sure that bush has read it or at least knows what it is.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has affected to render the executive independent of and superior to the legislative and judicial branches of government.

Just a thought.
