The Declaration of Independence 2010

Envision this scene: A group of patriots gather in a hall in Philadelphia in a steamy late-June 1776 to make plans for a secession…a revolution. So they set about enumerating the many acts of tyranny committed by King George and his minions against the British citizens of the colonies.

A Virginia aristocrat named Thomas Jefferson was given the task of drafting the document. In mere days, he writes a document which will come to be regarded as the most important statement of human freedom in the history of mankind.

Many scholars believe that Jefferson meant for the Declaration of Independence to be performed, not just read by individuals. The flow of the words and the cadence of the phrases are an invitation to the human voice and the human ear.

The greatest value of the Declaration of Independence is its function as a compass needle, pointing always to that true north of the ideals declared within it. No matter how far We the People have strayed from its ideals, we have only to acknowledge our errors and return to the fundamental values published therein. For only in this document do we find the template for human liberty and governance.

Fulfilling the goals of any Declaration of Independence is a struggle that demands constant vigilance. We have all borne the tyranny visited upon us when we have taken our eyes off liberty’s compass. And though the struggle to return to true liberty may be perilous and arduous, it will also be ennobling. We still desire the sweet fruits of liberty, and our progeny still need heroes.

It is with great pleasure and pride that I present to you an interpretive reading of the 1776 Declaration of Independence. May liberty-loving men and women re-dedicate their Lives, their Fortunes and their Sacred Honor to the quest to be Free and Independent States once more.

Secession…WITHOUT TAXATION…is the Hope for Mankind.

  2. Hey Russ,

    In general I love to read your blog, but I cannot stomach listening to this band of left-wing wingnuts (with very few exceptions) reading the sacred words of the Declaration of Independence. It is nauseating.

    This band of Hollywood elites would die to defend Obama and his cause – the tyrannical reign of terror over this nation on behalf of the NWO thugs – aka Wall Street gangsters – who populate his administration like cockroaches and rats populate the sewers of Manhattan.

    Sorry I had to turn it off – especially because I personally that know at least one of the performers in the video is a real-life cretin!

    I’ll keep reading your blog, and I would love to hear the Declaration performed by an unknown, rag-tag group of secessionists – instead of a group of people who are for the most part Satan’s mouthpiece.

    I am sure that I will get kicked off your site because of my statements – but that’s OK the Tea party kicked me out too.

    Thanks for your hardwork in spreading the word of Freedom through secession.

    Thomas J. Quigley

    Would that some of these blatant Hollywood liberals (not all of them, mind you!) apply the words they so piously intone to our current King George, his Parliament, and the minions they have sent out among us to eat out our substance and usurp our God-given rights. Laws and taxes without representation THEN, but not NOW? WHAT HYPOCRISY!!!!
