Honor.
They have plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our
retirement accounts, and destroyed the lives of our people.

They are at this time transporting large Armies of Leftist


Mercenaries to compleat the works of Speech Police and of
voter and census fraud, already begun with circumstances of
Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous
ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

They have constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive in the


Global War on Capitalism to bear animus against their
Country, to become the executioners of their friends and
Brethren by taking TARP and Bailouts, or to fall themselves by
their Hands.

They have excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has

merciless Union Boss Savages whose known rule of warfare, is
an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and
conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for


Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have
been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose
character is thus marked by every act which may define a
Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a Free People.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our House and


Senate brethren. We have warned them from time to time of
attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable
jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the
circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have
appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have
conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow
these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our
connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to
the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore,
acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation,
and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in
War, in Peace Friends.
