Declaration of Independence

Do these principles matter to you? If so, how and why? These addresses matter to me because this is the stuff keeps us alive and keeps the laws all in order so people don't go crazy. This keeps people from walking around the streets and doing dumb things. If we didn't have laws then it would just be a free for all.

  • Who is responsible for protecting or guaranteeing our unalienable rights?

The creators are responsible for protecting or guaranteeing our unalienable rights are the people who made the document.

  • Why does a just government need consent of the governed? Because if you commit a crime in a different state then you should be charged on there laws instead of what state your normally in.
  • Explain the ideas of unalienable rights and government by consent. Unalienable rights are good so you cant get stuff taken away.
  • Are the principles of unalienable rights and government by consent in the Declaration outdated, or are they still true today? Still true because we have close to the same laws
