Pleadeclaration

This is an attempt, by quite liberally quoting and extensively leveraging the literature of “Declaration of Independence” and the famous “Gettysburg Address“, to plead to the people and politicians of this nation to remember and restore the very fundamental rights (to equality and immigration) that this nation fought for, 244 years ago.


To all the citizens of the United States of America
To all the aliens aspiring to be the citizens of America
To all the people of color and colorless and ‘status’ and statusless..

One hundred and twenty scores and four years ago, the great Fathers of this nation declared that All men are equal.

Now, we are engaged in a new-age civil war, turning this very land of opportunities into a battle-ground of unending riots and the land of immigrants into law of oppressions, testing whether the unalienable rights of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness can long endure in this nation. Thus raising doubts, if those Rights are even self-evident anymore.

Let the Facts be submitted to a candid world, that The history of the present ‘King’ is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations and his endeavor to prevent the population of these States by refusing to pass Foreigners to encourage their migrations hither. Notwithstanding, The opportunistic ‘future Kings’ kept among us, in times of peace, Hidden Armies to excite domestic insurrections bringing in undistinguished destruction. All having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.

Whenever any Form of Government or Opposition or Human act of unkindness becomes destructive of Safety and Happiness, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is the Right and Duty of the People of this nation to be alert to alter or to abolish the tyranny and lawlessness.

We, therefore, the residents of the United States of America, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, mutually pledge to each other our Lives and our Fortunes to be dedicated with increased devotion now to the great challenge before us—that we now highly resolve-that this nation, shall restore peace and equality—and that the unalienable rights of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness shall not perish from the earth.

Happy 244th Independence Day!
