Quotes

"We hold these truths to be self-evident. That all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
...Stephen Kohn, Executive Director of the National Whistleblower Center adds, "Whistleblowers are under attack. They have been gagged. They have been fired. They have been indicted and imprisoned. Yet, they have saved taxpayers billions upon billions of dollars and have exposed incredible corporate and government abuses. National Whistleblower Day is the time to remember that our Founding Fathers fully supported the duty of every American to blow the whistle on frauds, and a time to honor those who have sacrificed for the public interest."
..." According to the National Archives, "While no one knows for certain who wrote it, it is known that early in its life, the large parchment document was rolled up for storage. So, it is likely that the notation was added simply as a label." There are no hidden/coded messages!
