Dead Ink vs. Live Ink

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.
