“......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. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. .....” The Declaration of Independence, paragraph 2

The most important words are "That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

WE are the governed and we hereby withdraw our consent.

The founding father's designed our system to be flexible enough to be completely reworked when we decided the current system no longer works for us.

It is not our choice but it is our duty and responsibility, to abolish it, and institute a new government. If anyone tells you that is crazy, or too radical, please refer them to The Declaration of Independence.
