The new declaration of dependence

Original or "flawed" text
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, 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, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Text as written by today's government elites
When in the course of one of Congresses 200 vacation days, it becomes neccessary to dissolve the bands that hold the lower classes (the folks) and our money (that they "earned" only because of our regulations, laws and never ending genius) and for us to assume absoulute power to bulldoze their houses to make room for developement that Senator So-and-so's cousin wants a contract for.

There is no absolute truth. The government must work to create equality, bring some people up while tearing others down. The lower classes (the folks whose first class plane fair does not entitle them to a private jet) have rights that only we give them. And what we give we can take away. Governments are instituted to grow... and grow.... and grow. Government is the foundation of all things.
