Our American Declaration of Independence is the supreme un-amendable moral law of the United States. Declarational law preceded and trumps our supreme amendable secular law, the Constitution. As stated in our Declaration, the purpose of secular law (Constitution) is to secure our sacred, equal, individual human rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness – private property honestly earned through creative labor.
“That to secure these rights, Governments [Constitutions] are instituted among Men…” ~ Declaration of Independence
While our Constitution and Bill of Rights are the greatest secular laws ever written – it must be acknowledged that our secular Constitution has a sacred mandate – The Declaration of Independence. The American Revolution is first and foremost a revolution in sacred, unalienable human rights, and their associated moral laws (Declaration); and secondarily a revolution in secular law (Constitution). We must be aware that secular law, particularly the “Living Constitution” (Orwellian Newspeak for Dead Constitution), can be perverted into tyranny when such law becomes destructive of the individual’s sacred, unalienable human rights.
“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.” ~ Thomas Jefferson
