When reading the Declaration of Independence, I noticed how the writers put God first, the people second, and the government third. I observed how the Declaration is seeking justice for all. However, this Declaration has been (and continues to be) ignored by the government. How did we transfer from the topic of everyone being equal, to believing some races are superior? Why is the current government in the United States, not shut down and abolished by the people as their Declaration says they are allowed to if the government is going against the principles of democracy? This Declaration was supposed to unify the colonies physically and patriotically. Is this what America was intended to be?
