Thomas Sowell wrote an article for RealClearPolitics last year titled Dismantling America.  The article is informally written, but I cannot help but think of it as a very early draft for the next American Declaration of Independence.

The first American Declaration of Independence reads:

… 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. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

Jefferson then goes on to list many of King George’s abuses and usurpations.  Let us not forget that King George was not an absolute monarch; he was a very limited monarch with defined powers.  In much the same way as King George, King Obama the First has created a long train of abuses and usurpations — and continues to do so.

For obvious reasons, Sowell does not dwell on the natural consequences of Obama’s march towards absolute tyranny.  Instead, Sowell focuses this early effort on listing some of Obama’s repeated injuries and usurpations.  I strongly encourage you to review the list that Sowell has prepared and to continue his work by recording entries of your own.
