Over this past July 4th, I was thinking about the founding of this country and the documents that made it great. Some people may not be aware of the Supreme Court’s modifications of the original documents, so, as a public service, here is one of those documents, the Declaration of Dependence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men deserve equal outcomes, that they are endowed by the Government with certain inalienable entitlements, that among these are perpetual unemployment compensation, eternal welfare, and free health care. That to secure these entitlements, governments are instituted among men, deriving their powers from the ability to tax and regulate. That whenever any form of government becomes unwilling to provide these benefits, it is the right of the people to ignore the Constitution and elect new politicians, laying the foundation of the nanny state and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their perpetual and ever increasing entitlements...”
