A Look Inside the Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence is one of the most important documents regarding the history of the United States. Like the Bible, the Declaration of Independence is especially important to many in that it is held to be a document that states the freedom that people have in the country and the freedom that the people have from other countries.

 

One of the first phrases of the Declaration of Independence is especially held as one of the most important in the laws that are in the country. It is an especially important part of the Declaration of Independence in that it shows how all people will be able to follow whatever they want to in the country. They do not have to be forced onto anyone, meaning that people can follow the ideas that they want. This means that people will not have to be forced like with previous eras in Europe where people were governed by an individual person or a religion.

The truths mentioned here in the Declaration of Independence refer to values that cannot be changed by any kind of circumstance. They are general ideas that cannot be controlled by any group, including the government of the nation.

“Self evident” in the Declaration of Independence refers to the idea of natural law. This is where there are laws in the country that are part of the natural existence of all people. They are “unalienable,” meaning that they cannot be taken from anyone. All people will be able to get these rights.

The “Creator” mentioned in the Declaration of Independence refers to the freedom in which people will not be governed by a particular religion. This means that the freedoms that people have are generally an inheritance from their creators as if it were a legacy from God. This is something that the government will not infringe upon.

Ever since it was drafted by Thomas Jefferson on July 2, 1776, many people have seen the Declaration of Independence as an important document. In fact, during his inaugural speech in 1861 Abraham Lincoln stated that the country was “conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”

One of the best traditions that people have on Independence Day every year is that of reading the Declaration of Independence. With these facts mentioned here it is a great tradition in that the Declaration of Independence still holds true today. Besides, the Declaration of Independence is one of the most important documents in the history of the country in that is shows how important the general freedoms of all people are.
