DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 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, -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, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Nature proves that all Men (female and male) are created equal, but they are not created the same. Being born thus, we have a right to Life and therefore to the needs of Life, which includes: air, warmth, water, food, shelter, sleep, sex, and the security of body, work, property, family, and society; we have the right to Freedom and the quest for Joy, which is the accomplishment of purpose and fulfillment of human potential in conditions favorable to Enlightenment. Mankind thus defines codes and practices for cooperation and shared duties, so that we may revel in each others' well-being and attain the dignity of Life. However, systems and management oftentimes becomes contrary to its mission, becoming self -serving instead of serving the common good, and thus, it sometimes becomes necessary to correct such corruption and rightly abolish ruinous institutions rather than suffer cruel exploitation and ignoble oppression.

UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION PREAMBLE We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. To achieve Order and Unity, there must be reasonable fairness and skillful means in providing for the needs and rights of the People, including lifelong healthcare and education, and the security of resources and the necessities for efficient and efficacious operations in support of the common good in peacetime and emergencies. The Constitution outlines the various branches of Government including the duties and limits of the representative Officers (the Legislative sets the rules of management; the Executive directs operations as defined by the Congress; the Judicial mediates disputes and conflicts), the boundaries between Constitutional jurisdiction and the rights of States, the process of amendment, the sovereignty of the Constitution, and the affirmation and consent of the Founding Fathers. To prevent the misinterpretation or abuse of the Constitution against the People, the following restrictions were adopted:
