I'm a big fan of "Peanuts", "Pearls Before Swine", and "Calvin and Hobbes". I love Snoopy's positive outlook on life and Hobbes' affinity for smooching and babes. :-)

    Then, just read on. I’m a fan of this comic. I doubt that my lone comment keeps people from laughing at the humor.

    It was a step in the right direction and it would lead to the realization that all should be included in that statement. At the time, governments in Europe had the power to limit “rights” of the common man. Kings and government bodies could pass laws to the detriment of their subjects and claim “the divine right of kings” as their authority to do so. The Magna Carta was a step along the way to limiting this power and recognizing the rights of the common man but English kings still abused their power. The Declaration of Independence laid down another step in governmental authority: that rights are not bestowed by the government, but by their Creator. A good and just government merely protects these rights and since the rights are sacred and inherent, the government cannot take them away. That is the basis for rebelling against a government that tries to take them away. “Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.” As Jefferson wrote these words - “all men are created equal” - he knew that he was opening the door to a new way of viewing “freedom.” But he believed it was an enlightened way of thinking and the right thing to do. As conflicted as he was, especially in regards to slavery, he admitted that this meant chattel slavery had to go. They discussed this at the convention and the 27th grievance against the King had to be struck from the document in order to ensure Southern support for the Declaration. Not all agreed that the 27th grievance should be deleted but our Independence was at stake so a compromise had to be made. They were still under the hierarchy of legal classes of Europe, yet they were open to trying a new way in order to level the playing field. A government does not have the authority to take away or limit the rights of the people on a whim.

    John was not even at the Constitutional Convention. Regardless, this was not a meeting of the Continental Congress and George Washington was not at the signing of the Declaration. I understand people making a joke. Historically, however, the two situations were not the same.

    This, I believe, is the signing of the Constitution, not the Declaration. If so, there is no official Continental Congress; just the chosen delegates to the Constitutional Convention. And that is George Washington in the chair, not John Hancock. I understand how people confuse the two events, especially seeing as how they happened in the same place with some of the same people. But the Declaration was formed and signed by the 2nd Continental Congress in 1776; the Constitution was formed and signed in the summer of 1787 by delegates chosen by the states, but not an official Congress.
