Mindless?????? Maybe you need to read it again and to understand the
profoundity of those words that were written more then 200 years ago
but still apply today (Steven's caveat about slavery not
withstanding). This was a propaganda peice that helped move a country
toward revolution and established the precepts for the most
successful form of goverment, that would follow, in the history of
mankind. You might also read Rush Limbaugh, Jr.'s speech about the
sacrifices made by the founders before calling the DoI,
mindless.</soapbox>

In any case the reading of it is not the issue but the very fact that
one of the most historic peices of literature in the world was
effectively condemned by some elected officials that owe their very
position to it.
