Quote by: Declaration of Independence

governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government...it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
