Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence is the founding document of the American political tradition. It articulates the fundamental ideas that form the American nation:  All men are created free and equal and possess the same inherent, natural rights. Legitimate governments must therefore be based on the consent of the governed and must exist “to secure these rights.”
