  • Pennsylvania
  • Whoa, hold up we gotta revise this
  • All done! Now I Thomas J. will sign
  • Agenda: Declare Independence
  • You must include, why we want to break away, such as taxation without representation.
  • The unfair legal system, the monarchy of England, and especially the soldiers!
  • Okay.. What else should I include.
  • Agenda: Fix Declaration of Independence
  • I've got it! I will include what George said and my own beliefs; that everyone is born with unalienable rights, and has the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
  • Excellent, we just need to make a few changes....
