The American Creed

I believe that all people are created equal and they are endowed by their Creator with certain irrevocable rights: Life from conception to natural death; Liberty to act according to one's will without threat from any authority; and the Pursuit of Happiness in any lawful business or vocation not in conflict with the rights of others.

I believe that Government is instituted by people to secure and protect their rights, and to provide for the common good either by law or tradition, or both, and all rights other than those powers specifically given to Government remain with the people.
