We owe it ourselves and to our ancestors and descendants to read the Declaration of Independence often. Once a year is not enough. This is a measurement for Americans to determine how far the country has drifted.from where it started as 13 colonies. What was most important for them should also be most important for us.

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.

We have a right to Occupy Wall St. and all other places. The people have been corralled by their own government.
