Declaration of Legitimate Government

[With paraphrasing from The Declaration of Independence  
and The Gettysburg Address]


that all people are created equal, that they are endowed by virtue of their humanity with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments may be instituted by people, deriving their just powers from the consent of the Governed; That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive to these ends it is the Right of the People -- indeed it is the Duty of the People -- to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, that to them shall seem most likely to insure their Safety, Liberty, and Happiness;

That fundamental to the establishment and protection of such Government are the guaranteed rights of free speech and public assembly -- including the freedom from persecution or discrimination for holding or expressing political, social, or religious views when such views are expressed peacefully;

That the only legitimate government of any people or any nation is government of the People, by the People, and for the People, which honorably strives to promote and observe the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 10, 1948;

       Further, that any legitimate government when called upon to do so shall be willing to publicly state and stand by these principles in order to identify itself as a legitimate government of People.
