As exponents in democracy the Founding Fathers of the United States were the bees’ knees, for themselves and for ages yet to come.
This is a portion of the Declaration of Independence, quoted verbatim, merely substituting King Jean Claude Juncker for King George… Now do you see why we did what we did?
The EU has refused its Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
The EU has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
The EU has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving its Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. The EU whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
