To secure people's unalienable rights, it declares that the government rules by the consent of the people - that is, it gets its power from the people who had elected them, and the government's power does not come from God, not of any divine origin. If a government does not use its powers for the good of the people, the people have the right to change or remove that government.

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.
