Decalration Of Independence
Transcript of Decalration Of Independence
As the colonists were tired of being taxed and ruled by the British, they wrote the Declaration of Independence to show King George III, British ruler at that time, that the colonists don't like to be controlled by others.
Complaints And Concepts
The colonists thought that the king, King George, didn't enforce laws, forced people to quarter soldiers into their own homes, and taxed citizens without them having a voice. In the natural rights stated in this document, it has said, "...That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men..." but King George ignored those rights and took the government for himself and Parliament.
In conclusion, the colonists did not feel happy when Britain became their government, so the U.S created this document to list their grievances and to say that they are their own government now. "... and Independent states, they have full power to conclude peace, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts..."
Natural Rights And The Government
The people have given rights that cannot be taken away from the government, men created the government to make sure these rights are secured, and if this government becomes too controlling of destructive, the people have the right to abolish it. These are a few ideas of natural rights and the role of government.
