The Principles of the Declaration of Independence are Final

Calvin Coolidge

“If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions.” – Calvin Coolidge
