I was assuming you meant that 220 year old US document when I voted. A little presumptuous of me, but on tgt nonetheless

I've read the entire document, important to remember though, the Declaration of Independence is not Law, the Declaration of Independence has nothing to do with Law, the US Constitution is Law, and the more important document.

The Declaration of Independence was a Treasonous action, although one I am quite happy with, but Treasonous just the same.

There is probably a large number of people in Congress who don't know that. I wouldn't be surprised if some have tried to add amendments to it.

I can see quite a few Members of Congress wanting to add the words "Jesus Christ" to the main body of the Document, or perhaps just the word "Christian".
An Amendment stating that the United States of America is to be a "Christian Nation" would also be one that would be pushed if Amendments were allowed, in my opinion.

What I find rather interesting is that as of this post, only 13 of the posters in this poll have read the entire Declaration of Independence.

Well Top, seeing how important the Declaration of Independence was to the entire modern world, I find it kinda sad.

Regardless of the presumed importance to the entire world, I was speaking specifically within the context of our forum. I would have expected more military people or people at least having an interest in history to have read the document.
