The actions Queen Elizabeth I took towards crime and punishment helped transform England into a more stable

That is just plain wrong and I am more then willing to fight for my freedom in these situations. What do I even have to loose, I am as poor as a church mouse, I have only a few friends and my small family is so far away. How I see it, the people who wrote this Declaration of Independence just want the rights they should have had in the first place.
