I hold this truth to be self-evident...

I hold this truth to be self-evident, that all people are created equal, that they are endowed with divine, unalienable, rights and among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted by the people, deriving their just powers only from the consent of the governed. That the enumeration of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. That powers not delegated to the United States are reserved to the people.
