the first sentence clinched it for me and the rest just became evidence;

If the Founders of our country were alive today, there already would have been a Second American Revolution. And if the people alive today were alive back then, there never would have been a first one.
The Declaration of Independence was written to explain why the colonies wanted to be independent of England and why they thought it was worth fighting a war to do just that.
Read this excerpt from that document. But read it slowly. I’ll wait… 
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, — 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.”
Our country is based on certain concepts: all people are created equal, and their creator, God, gave them unalienable rights. Equality means, or at least what they meant by it, is that nobody has a right to be a king or a ruler. There is no royal family or royal line. We would have representatives to represent the people, a Senate to represent the states, an executive to carry out the laws, and courts to mete out justice.
God gave people unalienable rights, rights that precede and supersede government, rights that the government cannot take away, change, or interfere with.
We establish a government for the purpose of securing and protecting those rights. And if it doesn’t, we are told to change it or get rid of it and make another one...........
