Every US citizen should read this, I know its a long fucking read but it puts you back in the shoes of our founding fathers and shows just how fucked our current political system is and how exactly we can fix it ourselves.
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. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
Read those paragraphs again, then one more time for good measure. GOD entitles us, not man, to take charge of our own destiny. When the government becomes destructive of their own populace, we have a RIGHT to abolish or replace it. Even back then they knew men craved law, and followed them even to the point of suffering, but it only takes a few men of action to kick things off.
The next bit is simply all the bullshit they had to go through under rule from the brits, which are all arguably taking place in today's society. Lets take a look at each one separately.
1. He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
This charge refers to the fact that several of the colonies had been obliged from their establishment to submit their laws to the King for his approval. This power, the Declaration implies, was never consistent with the fundamental principle of just government: consent. And by adding "laws the most wholesome and necessary for the public good," Jefferson indicates that the laws that were vetoed were intended to accomplish the fundamental purpose of government stated in the preamble, "to secure these rights." One important example of this charge was King George's refusal to comply with various attempts by the Colonies to abolish the slave trade, as Jefferson explicitly stated in his original draft of the declaration. The King, wishing to protect this profitable British trade, defeated all attempts by the Colonies to curtail or abolish it.
So we have an overwhelming agreement in the general populace that they want law changed to meet their own social goals, but the laws are ignored by the leader for their ties to a big industry (money money money). Sounds quite a bit like many facets of America these days, people calling for legalization of marijuana, big pharma "intellectual rights" artificially inflating prices, government bailouts to private companies, the list goes on and on.
