"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."

Read it.

If you have never done so, please do.
Comment on if it is time to adopt the same Roderick that got us here, or if we are doing ok as a nation.

If you do not care about commenting on the question posed than please copy and paste you favorite part of this historic document.

I like:

"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. "

"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."

"For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:"

Unless, of course, the government that people decide is liberal based in which case you wouldn't like that idea at all (that we could abolish the old government ad create a new one).
