We the People

We came to the New World to escape religious persecution and the arbitrary power of potentates and princes. We were inspired by the concept of freedom. We fought a king who sought to subordinate this new nation. When we declared independence, our voice was clear and direct:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. – That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

    — From the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence
