Declaration of Independence
The ideas of unalienable rights is that everybody is created equal and has the same rights as the person next to you whether they are black or white, male or female, blue hair or blonde. There are certain rights no one, not even the government can take away from you. We live for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Consent of the governed is a big advantage that the U.S has. Many of the countries were in war with, or have fought has dictators. Because our country has a democracy, everybody gets a say in what happens. We vote on our leaders and laws, to make sure no one has more power than someone else.
In order for our government to be just, we need to have the consent of the governed, like we already do. This form of government is the best because it gives people the power to vote on what they like. It is the only way for everyone to be happy.
Who is responsible for protecting our unalienable rights? I believe there are 3 people. The first to making up about 40% of it and the 3rd making up 60%. The government and the armed forces risk their lives to protect us and declaration of independence every day. But by far the most important person protecting your rights is you. You do what you want and are the most important person controlling your rights.
Our unalienable rights and government by consent is still true today. All of our rights that cannot be taken away are still in affect. We all have the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. No one can take them away from you. These matter to me because its important to be happy. If people take away your unalienable rights, you are not going to be happy. Having freedom is one of the most important rules/laws in our society. America is the best place to live, because of the laws we are set upon.
