Gaud! it just had to come down to this, didn't it?
... 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 ...
Just making sure we're still awake, I see!
This almost sounds like it was written by Discordians, as a satire of some sort! It's too funny! -- except that it's real!
However, since Washington is now 25 percent atheists (nontheists), this will never fly. Never.
Besides, since when was the Declaration of Independence law? When was it ever law?
And how come nobody has ever tried to force us to use the Declaration's understanding of God -- "Nature's God" -- the god of deism?
