"Government is instituted
for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity and
happiness of the people; and not for the profit, honor, or private
interest of any one man, family, or class of men: Therefore the people
alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to
institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same,
when their protection, safety, prosperity and happiness require it."
