Principals of the Declaration

By: Gavin Henderson

Unalienable rights:

The idea of unalienable rights is that people have certain rights that cannot be taken away from them. These rights are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.  These are the rights that are given to you by God and cannot be taken away.

Consent of the governed:

A condition urged by many as a requirement for legitimate government : that the authority of a government should depend on the consent of the people, as expressed by votes in elections.

The Declaration of Independence says, “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” This means that government gets all its power from the people. The people set up the government.

The people run the government. The government does not run the people. If people don’t like the government, they have the right to change it.

The people that are responsible for the protection of  our rights are our selves, and the government.

These rights are still used to day. At the same time they are not. I say this because we live in a free country and we can do as we please. Then there are many people that are still mistreated and abuse and these people don't have their rights.

These principles me a lot to me, because I fell like that everyone deserves these unalienable rights. I also believe these rights are ours naturally.   

This concludes my presentation.
