Our Lives, Our Fortunes, Our Sacred Honor

With Independence Day approaching and the headline "Scooter Skates" marking the Bush administration's latest mocking of justice, I am compelled to ask, what are we willing to sacrifice to be certain that this group of despots does not remain in charge of the executive branch of our government? Consider these, not quite as often repeated words, from the Declaration of Independence:

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

And the two border patrol guys who shot at the drug dealer will be in jail for 12+ years.
They have wives and children and have lost their jobs too.
