What are the five principles of government as outlined in the Declaration of Independence, and why do they matter to you? Those are the two questions answered in this short video by David Barton, Founder of Wallbuilders, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of America’s heroes, history and religious foundation.
The Declaration of Independence provides five principles of government, which are: 1) the existence of a moral law, 2) the existence of God, 3) the inalienable rights of the individual, 4) the government’s responsibility to protect those rights and 5) the right to vote. Above all else, government should support and uphold these five principles. Without them, the U.S. government would not operate the way it was designed to operate.
When government officials set these principles aside and impose their beliefs on the masses, problems exist. People’s rights of conscience, their rights to uphold and act upon their religious beliefs, are violated.
That’s the case when people are censured, fired from jobs or sued because they won’t uphold overly progressive, or radical, social agendas. When they no longer have the right of conscience to support a traditional view of marriage, gender or definition of life—even in their own businesses—the five principles of government have been set aside. This is dangerous because once any one of these principles is abandoned, the others are sure to follow. Eventually, personal rights and freedoms become a thing of the past.
