The declaration of Independence. IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776 The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. 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. The Declaration of Independence I think the constitution of USA is based and derived from important historical documents. Nobody can write the constitution on their own. Today the Constitution of USA is just an historical document. Nobody cares for the constitution. Not even Obama.
