The Declaration of Independence sets forth the fundamental guidelines of the American Government.
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.
Equality is about ensuring that every individual has an equal opportunity to make the most of their lives.
Unalienable Rights cannot be taken away or denied; the Declaration says certain rights have been given to all humans by their Creator, which governments are created to protect.
"Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" is the most famous Declaration of Independence. The pursuit of happiness is interpreted in many ways but is often said to mean the ability to control one's path in life without interference.
The purpose of the Constitution is to limit the power of the government in such that the rights of the citizens are protected from government abuse.
The Constitution is our means of maintaining freedom and is intended to protect us from government overreach.
The Constitution also defines the makeup of the government.
The Bill of Rights
Pro-Gun Women was founded by Stefani Lord as an organization to preserve not just the Second Amendment, but also to protect our Bill of Rights. Anti-gun groups, backed by big-money donors, have written new laws with cleverly designed wording that strips away our rights. These laws find us to be guilty without a trail and our property taken without a warrant.
Taken from the Whitehouse web site:
The First Amendment provides that Congress make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting its free exercise. It protects freedom of speech, the press, assembly, and the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
The Second Amendment prevents the government from infringing on a citizens rights to bear arms
The Third Amendment prohibits the government from quartering troops in private homes, a major grievance during the American Revolution.
The Fourth Amendment protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizure. The government may not conduct any searches without a warrant, and such warrants must be issued by a judge and based on probable cause.
The Fifth Amendment provides that citizens not be subject to criminal prosecution and punishment without due process. Citizens may not be tried on the same set of facts twice, and are protected from self-incrimination (the right to remain silent). The amendment also establishes the power of eminent domain, ensuring that private property is not seized for public use without just compensation.
The Sixth Amendment assures the right to a speedy trial by a jury of one's peers, to be informed of the crimes with which they are charged, and to confront the witnesses brought by the government. The amendment also provides the accused the right to compel testimony from witnesses, and to legal representation.
The Seventh Amendment provides that civil cases also be tried by a jury.
The Eighth Amendment prohibits excessive bail, excessive fines, and cruel and unusual punishments.
The Ninth Amendment states that the list of rights enumerated in the Constitution is not exhaustive, and that the people retain all rights not enumerated.
The Tenth Amendment assigns all powers not delegated to the United States, or prohibited to the states, to either the states or to the people.(1)
