8th grade homework, please help!?

Question:okay, so i have to do this thing in history where you have to take quotes from the declaration of independence, and put it in simpler language. please help me with this quote:


But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is thier right, it is thier duty, to throw off such government.


please help me!!! :)

Answers:
But, when government continues to abuse its power and takes away the rights and freedoms of its citizens, it is the duty of those citizens to rebel and overthrow that government.

Hope that helps :)
wow I have no idea how to use that, all we had to do was the Preamble in simpler terms
I'm not sure what all those words mean but it sounds like its saying that if a government is constantly trying to put its people down (taking away birth rights etc...) that they have the right to get rid of that government.

So basically, the people have the right to get rid off an unjust government.
Alright I will try I heard this on National Treasure. It basically means that if you see something wrong like some body is going to stteal something like in Nat'l Tres. it's your job to do the right thing , no matter what the law is. If its a good deed to do do it- no matter what...
hope this helps!!
First off lets break down those big words

usurpations:
to take possession of without legal claim

evinces:
to display clearly

despotism:
a system of government in which the ruler has unlimited power

This should help
