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 [or maybe they weren’t intentional! maybe we’re all a bit wrong here! maybe we on this side of the pond have just been in a tizzy!], all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States [did I just say that? in fact, we colonists are pretty Tyrannical in return. why don’t we just have a cup of tea and forget about it! we’re just as wrong as the king!]. To prove this, let the Facts be submitted to a candid World.He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public Good [but then again he is a King. Maybe he makes the laws! Maybe we are reading the laws wrong! Maybe it’s really our fault!] .He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing Importance, unless suspended in their Operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. [Or maybe it is we who are making a big deal over nothing! We tend to do that! To take offense or to imagine offense when there isn’t any intended. It’s really our fault!] …

The History of Men being confident in their grievances where women are expected to question offenses and doubt themselves should have been over a long time ago.
