As I look around at what the republican party has done to us, to our Institutions, to a System of Self-Government that is the ENVY of the World — I see Corruption. Great, steaming piles of it — all on fire and threatening to wipe out every last trace of Decency and Honor our Country ever had.
Trumpism EPITOMIZES republicanism. It is soul-less, heartless, broken in spirit. It LUSTS after money because it knows — he who has the most money has the most power. And that is what motivates them.
Even the Christian Faith of these republicans has been CORRUPTED. On what planet would Jesus approve of what the INTENSELY CHRISTIAN REPUBLICANS just did to the American People?
What the republican party has done amounts to a veritable CORRUPTION OF THE AMERICAN ‘SPIRIT’. This corruption threatens to destroy every last vestige of what makes The United States of America one of the most amazing Human Accomplishments — creating out of nothing, in essence, a whole COUNTRY where the PEOPLE governed THEMSELVES.
And while it grieves us to have to set ourselves apart from other Americans, we recognize — as a people — that some Americans believe and do things that are completely and utterly at odds with and destructive to the Country the rest of us love and live in. We believe CORRUPTION lies at the heart of what these Americans are doing. And we, as a People, assert our RIGHT to DECLARE OURSELVES INDEPENDENT of and from the FORCES creating, propagating and profiting from this CORRUPTION.
To that End —
(based on the Original)
We have full arrived now at a point where, in the course of Human Events, it becomes necessary for a People to acknowledge the Destructive Errors of their collective past and commit to each other with All Seriousness and Sincerity to TURN AWAY from these behaviors and beliefs so as to FORM A MORE PERFECT UNION.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all PEOPLE are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator or by the ‘Act of Being Created’ itself with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness — That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among People deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to ALTER OR TO ABOLISH IT and to INSTITUTE NEW GOVERNMENT shall NEVER be abridged.
To that End, We The People recommit to separate ourselves permanently from ALL FORMS OF CORRUPTION — and DECLARE OUR INDEPENDENCE from all People or Institutions who would ever again ATTEMPT to overthrow our Democracy using the forces of ‘CORRUPTION’.
When a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of the American People in the face of Significant and Growing Evidence that Corruption now Threatens to destroy the very Nature of America itself that We The People now Step Forward, assured and committed not only to obliterating all vestiges of Corruption Past, but also all attempts by any and all to ever again use Corruption to undermine American values.
