  1. REVOLUTIONARY IDEALS WHAT WE BELIEVE

  2. 1. 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.: DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE ACCORDING TO THIS, WHAT TWO THINGS HAVE DETERMINED THAT AMERICA SHOULD BE FREE?

  3. 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.: DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

  4. WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT? IF RIGHTS COME FROM GOD OR ARE NATURAL, THEN IT IS WRONG AND UN-NATURAL FOR GOVERNMENT TO TAKE THEM AWAY IF GOVERNMENT GIVES THEM, THEN GOVERNMENT CAN TAKE THEM AWAY.

  5. 2. 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.—DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE Do you agree that the “Pursuit of Happiness” is a right all people should have? Can you name a way that some people would pursue happiness that you would be against?

  6. Name a way that you would pursue happiness.

  7. 3. -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 end, sit is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government: DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE IS OUR CURRENT GOVERNMENT (LOCAL, STATE, OR NATIONAL) DOING ANYTHING THAT LIMITS LIBERTY? IF SO, IS IT TIME TO ABOLISH OUR GOVERNMENT AND CREATE A NEW ONE?

  8. 4. 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: DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE NAME TWO THINGS THE BRITISH DID THAT WOULD CONVICE THE COLONISTS THAT BRITAIN WANTED TO TAKE AWAY THEIR RIGHTS.

  9. 5. That we do hereby declare our- selves a free and independent people; that we are, and of right ought to be, a sovereign and self-governing people under the power of God and the General Congress : “MECKLENBURG DECLARATION OF INDEPEDENCE” ACCORDING TO THIS, THE PEOPLE OF MECKLENBURG COUNTY NC ACCEPTED THE AUTHORITY OF ONLY TWO POWERS. WHAT WERE THEY?

  10. 5. That we do hereby declare our- selves a free and independent people; that we are, and of right ought to be, a sovereign and self-governing people under the power of God and the General Congress : “MECKLENBURG DECLARATION OF INDEPEDENCE”

  11. 6. Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask, gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: SPEECH BY PATRICK HENRY, VIRGINIA PATRIOT WHAT DOES PATRICK HENRY SEE THAT CONVINCES HIM THE KING IS GOING TOFORCE AMERICA TO SUBMIT?

  13. 8. If we wish to be free, if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending, if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!: SPEECH BY PATRICK HENRY ACCORDING TO PATRICK HENRY, WHAT IS THE ONLY WAY TO BE FREE?

  14. 8. If we wish to be free, if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending, if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!: SPEECH BY PATRICK HENRY IS HE RIGHT?

  15. 9. Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave: PATRICK HENRY ACCORDING TO HENRY, WHY DID WE HAVE A CHANCE AGAINST THE STRONGEST NATION ON EARTH?

  16. 9. Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave: PATRICK HENRY

  17. 10. I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!PATRICK HENRY REWRITE THIS QUOTATION WITHOUT USING ANY OF THE WORDS PATRICK HENRY USED. THE CHOICE OF SOMEONE ELSE IS UNKNOWN TO MY MIND,WITHOUT FREEDOM I WOULD RATHER BE KILLED.

  18. 11. This new World hath been the asylum for the persecuted lovers of civil and religious liberty from EVERY PART of Europe. Hither have they fled, not from the tender embraces of the mother, but from the cruelty of the monster; and it is so far true of England, that the same tyranny which drove the first emigrants from home, pursues their descendants still.:THOMAS PAINE ACCORDING TO PAINE, WHY DID PEOPLE COME TO AMERICA? FOR CIVIL AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

  19. 12. That British Fleets and Armies have been and still are daily employed in destroying the People and committing the most horrid devastations on the Country. That Governors in different Colonies have declared Protection to Slaves who should imbrue their Hands in the Blood of their Masters.:HALIFAX RESOLVES- PASSED BY THE COLONIAL LEGISLATURE OF NORTH CAROLINA. Here, NC complains about things the British have done. What is one complaint that shows the colonists might not really believe that “All Men are created equal”?

  20. 12. That British Fleets and Armies have been and still are daily employed in destroying the People and committing the most horrid devastations on the Country. That Governors in different Colonies have declared Protection to Slaves who should imbrue their Hands in the Blood of their Masters.:HALIFAX RESOLVES- PASSED BY THE COLONIAL LEGISLATURE OF NORTH CAROLINA. BRITISH GOVERNORS WERE PROMISING FREEDOM TO SLAVES WHO WOULD REVOLT AGAINST PATRIOT MASTERS.

  21. 13. Resolved that the delegates for this Colony in the Continental Congress be impowered to concur with the delegates of the other Colonies in declaring Independency, and forming foreign Alliances: HALIFAX RESOLVES WHAT DOES THIS QUOTATION SAY THAT NORTH CAROLINA FAVORS?

  22. 13. Resolved that the delegates for this Colony in the Continental Congress be impowered to concur with the delegates of the other Colonies in declaring Independency, and forming foreign Alliances: HALIFAX RESOLVES

  23. “WHAT TOM SAID” ON JULY 04, 1776, THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS PASSED THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE Which declared that the 13 former Colonies were now the independence “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” It also stated our chief REVOLUTIONARY IDEALS.
