Consent of the Governed and Unalienable Rights

Unalienable rights are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness along with this comes that the government should secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. The idea of this is so no one can be able to deny people's right or power to give up their personal liberty by 'agreeing' to any form of bondage.

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 idea of this is so that the colonist could be able to

The most fundamental concept of democracy is the idea that government exists to secure the rights of the people and must be based on the consent of the governed. Today, the Declaration of Independence is considered an indisputable maxim of the ideal form of government.

The main person who is responsible for protecting the unalienable rights is us because if they had control over it they could possibly take that away from us and, our rights would be gone.

Why does a just government need consent of the governed? This is asking us why we feel like it's okay to be letting the government have a lot of control and make critical decisions. We give them some power to be able to be in control because they need permission from us. We also have power and they have to ask us to make decisions and since we can rule the government even though it may not seem that way if we the people don't agree on a governments decision we can not let it pass or will not give permission to the government to go forward with there decision.

The principles of unalienable rights are somewhat still enforced today because  they're your natural rights but, at the same time part of the unalienable rights are going out of date because when it says all men are equal that doesn't really fit with reality today.  This can be the cause of half and half. Have of the rights still being followed and obeyed to this day and the other half being not as recognized as they were back in the older days when they were first enforced.

These principles still matter to me today and the world  because it keeps the government system balance and without it the governmental system would crash and burn with having no organized system to enforce new laws.
