More from the Founding Fathers
Does any of this sound familiar?
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good….
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers….
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power….
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:…
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever….
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
We don’t need or want another King.
