The Declaration of Independence TodaySubmitted by DYoung on Sun, 06/09/2013 - 15:44
In light of the recent scandals, I just wanted to read the Declaration of Independence again. Upon doing so, I once again began to draw parallels between the complaints listed in the document and those voiced today. This is something that I have heard people discuss from time to time, but I wanted to get the opinions of those on the DP about the issue. How do current events relate to the conditions described in the Declaration of Independence? Stated another way: What complaints listed in the document directly parallel something happening today?
I have my own thoughts on it, but I wanted to see how others viewed the situation. How much of history is being repeated?
