The problem is our Constitution: the folks who wrote up the document did not want the common man to have a say in government matters, that is clear now, the electoral college, the statement “ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL” which, they clearly meant to say all “WHITE” men are created equal, clearly they knew they had the power and they did not intend to give it away to the masses. We can debate that point but what is true today is that all men are equal and that includes women. Today men and women are more informed about our world than the folks who wrote the Constitution and are more capable of governing all aspects of our society in a well informed manner. The Constitution is a gift we must cherish and protect once we fix it. We will change our constitution to represent all citizens interests. We must take out the representative aspect of our Constitution and make it a true democratic document where all votes are counted when we seek to create laws that govern our society, laws that will affect all American citizens.

Now that I have read the biographies of all of the key players who wrote the Declaration of Independence, I understand their need to develop a new free government and be willing to die for its implementation into our new country. The statement “It is the Right of the People to alter or 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”: Clearly they state that when a government is not working, CHANGE IT! until it works for all free men and woman. This is our legacy gifted to our citizens through the words in documents we hold dear, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. We are bound to action when our constitution does not work. Change is the only way to over come the stagnation we have in our congress.
