It attempts to explain their rights to the revolution. It says that the colonies will fight for liberty, democracy, and opportunity. It can be separated into the introduction; preamble, the body 2x, and conclusion. Popular sovereignty impacted the Declaration of Independence by announcing the independence of the colonies to Great Britain. A good example from the Declaration of Independence could be "It is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such a Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security". The social contract says that rational people should believe in an organized government. A good example of social contract in the Declaration of Independence would be "Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." Natural and individual rights are mentioned in the Declaration of Independence when it is said that everyone is secure to the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I believe that I would have supported the making of the Declaration of Independence during its making. It upholds many political principles that Americans value. It established, for the first time ever, a nation based on these principles. It was the first stepping stone to rebelling and gaining independence from Great Britain.
