Declaration of Independence Lacks Support

A Rasmussen poll recently found that only 70% of Americans support this assertion made by the Declaration of Independence:

“Governments derive their only just powers from the consent of the governed.”

This means that 30% of Americans either disagree with this statement or don’t know. The actual breakdown is this:

13% disagree

17% are undecided

Who are these 30% who don’t support this founding document of the United States of America? What do they believe the roll of government should be? Who will they support for president in the next election? Please answer the poll below.

Only by assuming that others thoughts and experiences are as valid as our own will we understand what a peaceful mind feels like. I offer my impressions, questions, and encounters with the world not as THE truth but simply as MY truth. Thank you for listening. I look forward to returning the compliment.
