[The following is a modern adaptation to Thomas Jefferson and Colonel John Dickinson’s July 6, 1775 document entitled “Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking up Arms.” After hearing a recommendation and small piece from Mike Church, ( on his radio program, I was interested to read more and thought the readers here would appreciate a founder’s view of our current situation. This is only a fictional look at one writer’s view of how Thomas Jefferson may view our current environment and is not meant to be taken literally. But it is food for thought on what our forefathers endured and how it is as relevant today as then.]

A declaration by the representatives of the United States of North America, now met in Congress at Washington DC, setting forth the causes and necessity of their taking up arms.
