The Declaration of Independence: What It Means
Find the answer below to match the excerpt

England has repeatedly interfered with colonists’ rights.  In doing so, it has unfairly ruled over the American colonies.



Individuals have some basic rights that are obvious and that should not be taken away.  Freedom for example is one of those rights.

  
We now consider ourselves to be an independent country.

  
Here is proof that England has interfered with colonial rights: the King has not allowed laws that help the colonists the most.

  
When one group of people is going to break away from a country to form its own nation, then they should explain why they are doing it.

  
When a government is taking away the rights of citizens and is not doing what the people want, then the citizens have the right to change or replace the government.

  
Every time we colonists felt we were being treated unfairly, we wrote the King.  He answered by treating us more unfairly.  A ruler who abuses his power should not be able to rule us.

  
Governments are formed to make sure people’s rights are protected.  Government power should come from the people.
