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. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
So self-evident are these truths that it requires no commentary.
1. All men are created equal.
2. All men are endowed by their creator with unalienable rights:
a. The right to life
b. The right to liberty
c. The right to pursue happiness
3. Governments are instituted by men to secure those rights, and the governed have the power.
4. That when a government fails to secure those rights, or it is destructive to those rights, or asserts power against the will of the people, then the people have a right to alter or abolish it as they see fit.
This is the basis for our government, it is the reason people flocked here from all over the globe. This country was and is much sought after for the freedoms we have enjoyed. Those who wish to change that into any form of socialism is an enemy simply because all socialism takes the power out of the people’s hands. I wonder why those with socialist views don’t just move someplace where socialism is already active. Maybe it’s not necessarily what they want, maybe it’s the control. I submit to those who think that they will have a place of power should this abomination of a government ever win out, that TYRANNY has room for very few in power. Most will be brushed aside like the rest of the masses.
