I am stressed out to the MAX and here is just one tiny tiny reason why....Gabe and thereby I have to memorize the following...What they heck were our forefathers thinking? Why couldn't they just have said the following (see my edited version below)

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 abolish it, and to institute a 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.

Its obvious that all people are equal, that God gave us rights like life, liberty, and persuing happiness. That to make sure we are given these rights, governments are formed by the people and for the people with these rights. And when any form of government messes with these rights, it is the right of the people to change or get rid of it, and form a new government based on and organized for their safety and happiness.

Now honestly what would you rather memorize?
