IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” – (http://www.archives.gov/)
This quote taken from the Declaration of Independence shows that the people created a government so that the government could help uphold the rights of the people. But it now seems that government is actually telling people what to do in their lives such as how much fast food a person can eat. Now it seems to me that the government is doing more than it should be doing because it is pretty much starting to tell people how to live their lives by starting with how much food a person can eat. If the government continues on being corrupted like this, everything will be regulated, what kind of food we should eat, how many hours should be spent on a computer, how much food, drink, and what type of drinks can be consumed. It will be the government telling us exactly how to live, our declaration and constitution would not apply to the government if such things are able to be customized to the wishes of the government. Men gave the government some of their rights, but not enough for the government to be instructing its people what to do with their lives. The U.S government has to know its boundaries.
