The Declaration of Independence (as read by Max McLean)

    IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
    The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

    The Declaration of Independence was a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which announced that the thirteen American colonies, then at war with Great Britain, regarded themselves as independent states, and no longer a part of the British Empire. John Adams put forth a resolution earlier in the year which made a formal declaration inevitable. A committee was assembled to draft the formal declaration, to be ready when congress voted on independence. Adams persuaded the committee to select Thomas Jefferson to compose the original draft of the document, which congress would edit to produce the final version. The Declaration was ultimately a formal explanation of why Congress had voted on July 2 to declare independence from Great Britain, more than a year after the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War. The Independence Day of the United States of America is celebrated on July 4, the day Congress approved the wording of the Declaration.

    Quotes from signers:

    "Believe me, dear Sir: there is not in the British empire a man who more cordially loves a union with Great Britain than I do. But, by the God that made me, I will cease to exist before I yield to a connection on such terms as the British Parliament propose; and in this, I think I speak the sentiments of America."
    Thomas Jefferson

    "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
    Benjamin Franklin

    "I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in providence, for the illumination of the ignorant and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth."
    John Adams

    "There, I guess King George will be able to read that."
    John Hancock

    "Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right...and a desire to know; but besides this, they have a right, an indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean of the characters and conduct of their rulers."
    John Adam

    "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
    Thomas Jefferson

    "I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure it will cost us to maintain this declaration, and support and defend these states. Yet through all the gloom I see the rays of ravishing light and glory. I can see that the end is worth all the means. This is our day of deliverance."
    John Adams

    "Equal and exact justice to all men...freedom of religion, freedom of the press, freedom of person under the protection of the habeas corpus; and trial by juries impartially selected,these principles form the bright constellation which has gone before us."
    Thomas Jefferson

    "We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately."
    Benjamin Franklin

I call it our "Writ of Divorcement". And when the boyfriend/husband got a copy he said, "how dare that ungrateful servant witch?" and brought his friends to hunt down those you alienated her affection of him and to capture her for the dungeon. Well, that didn't work out so well now did it? But history also shows that the defeated husband didn't give up but merely changed his tactics. America's independent "lady" was beset with gossip and lies about her and many who once loved her began to question her inner beauty and virtues. Lured away be deception, she was abandoned over time and other mistresses took her place. But she's still the same, beautiful, virtuous heroine, worth of good men to love and adore!

Letter of treason. First page of a 3 paged document. Not such a simple letter no. It is directions and clarification of citizen behavior under tyranny of government. To call it a break up letter lessens the value of the document. To see it less then direction and instruction will only lead to a civilians demise. Notice within what is said countless of times. "The rights" to do so. Powers granted much as what the constitution and the bill of rights establish. Treat it as such.

I listen to a recitation of the the declaration every 4th of July, and every damn year I tear up. The constitution may be the greatest governmental document ever, but this, this is by far the greatest founding document ever written. It's good to be reminded from time to time that the revolution was not simply over taxes and tea, but over the all consuming tyranny that was the brittish crown. Many in this country would like to see us returned to the days of being told what we can own, and what we can believe, we must resist this at all costs. Idealy every American would start their 4th of July by listening to the Declaration of Independence, as a reminder of what tyranny we were fighting, but sadly the people who should hear it the most will never find their way here to listen to it.

Happy Independence Day folks. Today should be the day where we forget our political feuds amongst ourselves and embrace the fact that we are all patriotic Americans. We should celebrate the fact that the American experiment has lasted for 245 years. We have survived the onslaught of the British Empire, a bitter Civil War over slavery, two terrifying World Wars, half a century of Soviet aggression, and will probably survive the economic might of the Chinese regime. Rest assured, fellow compatriots, that no matter what, through thick and thin, issues both foreign and domestic, we shall continue to prevail over our adversaries. Our country has been able to move mountains even now with our bitter division between Democrats and Republicans, so imagine how much more we could do if we stood together as the UNITED States of America. Frankly, I'm glad to be an American despite all of our problems, and I hope that you are too. God bless America.

Could you imagine being there in 1776, seeing a large group of people gathered while one person stood above everyone else and read this? To feel the impact of these words, to know thier truth, and to know that next comes war. To hear the whispers and outcry of the people gathered around you from your neighbors of either excitement, fear or both. What would you do? Knowing that the war was coming to you rather than you going off to it and knowing that this would change everything. I only wish those people who doubted leaving the king could see what this country has become and the effect it had on other countries.

I think it’s interesting how it says “these independent states” as in originally the US was a loose confederation. And the Declaration of Independence was really a mutual declaration by the 13 colonies.

Thank you. Remind the Irish it wasn’t the ships of the British that brought corn, wheat, and doctors during the famine… it was the United States. Many Americans provided financial support to the Irish during the Easter rising and Irish War of Independence.

"it is their right, it is their duty to throw off such government and provide new guards for their future security" is such a powerful line. Do the right thing because it is the right thing to do and make sure you set yourself up to continue to do so. Integrity and honor is the core of what sets humans apart from the rest of the animal kingdom and is what makes us human. Without it we are just really smart animals.

Considered one of the most remarkable documents in history, particularly in regard to government and human affairs and the next logical step in democracy after the Magna Carta... and some people click the dislike? If you did, you really don't understand history. Not that I find that surprising if you went to public school in the U.S. Other countries teach more U.S. history and it's significance - including the history of Native American tribes - then the U.S. schools do. Let's not challenge people to learn and think.... It's July 4th 2021. Every TV station should be playing this a couple times during the day..

The most respectful and professional reading of the Declaration of Independence I have yet found. Listen solemnly. Happy Independence Day!!! I call it our "Writ of Divorcement". And when the boyfriend/husband got a copy he said, "how dare that ungrateful servant witch?" and brought his friends to hunt down those you alienated her affection of him and to capture her for the dungeon. Well, that didn't work out so well now did it? But history also shows that the defeated husband didn't give up but merely changed his tactics. America's independent "lady" was beset with gossip and lies about her and many who once loved her began to question her inner beauty and virtues. Lured away be deception, she was abandoned over time and other mistresses took her place. But she's still the same, beautiful, virtuous heroine, worth of good men to love and adore! https://youtu.be/4uE-tqe0xsQ
