Declaration of Independence

Happy 4th of July
Declaration of Independence

In Congress, July 4, 1776

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 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.
