It is hard to figure out what to do, when our long established government takes actions, in our name, that we can't countenance, that are wrong, that are plainly contrary to our future safety.
In this nation, we have believed that it is self-evident that governments are instituted to secure our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is one of our first principles that whenever any government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new government.
