Today is Independence Day, when we remember the dreams and vision of our founding Fathers. They created a Nation that has yet to be replicated, but many today are trying to destroy. They committed “treason” against the British Crown because they believed that if a government loses the consent of the people it is to govern than the people have the obligation to overthrow it:
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the 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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776
