    Greatest Moral Imperative Declaration of Independence   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.
