Happy Energy Independence Day
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the capitalistic bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the renewable energy powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness and clean energy from domestic sources.
— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed not the fossil fuel industry and their lobbyists.
— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new Government unbeholden to partisan bickering, posturing, and a general waste of voters’ time and money.
