Happy Independence Day!

- Det vakreste politiske dokument noensinne ble undertegnet 4 juli 1776 da Decleration of Independence ble signert. Med de uforglemmelig og evige ordene:

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.

Gratulerer med dagen!

Apropos Bill of rights.

I dagens politiske klima i USA - tror jeg ikke Bill of Rights hadde kommet levende ut av Kongressen idag? Jeg tror ikke den hadde kommet ut av en komite engang.
