    ''Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.
    The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these States.
    To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.''

    "He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them."
    I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."

    He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

    He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of
    their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

    I have an old timey copy of it. About 80 years old,
    so I was told, in old fancy wood frame, really aged like
    it was 300 years old.Ed

    ''He has disolved Representitive Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of people.
    He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected;
    wereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasions from without, and convulsions within.''

    ''He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States;
    for that purpose obstructing the Laws of Naturalization of Foreigners;
    refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
    He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
    He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices,
    and the amount and payment of their salaries.
    He has errected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

    "He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
    He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.''

    He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and acknowledged by our laws;
    giving his assent to their acts of Pretended Legislation.
    For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
    For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
    For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:
    For imposing taxes on us without our Consent:
    For depiving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

    For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offenses.
    For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighboring Province,
    establishing there-in an arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies.
