Does the Declaraton of Independene have legal standing as law in the United States?
No, the Constitution does. The DoI is just that...a declaration breaking the bond to Britain. The current government is based on the ratification of the Constitution on March 4, 1789.
The Declaration remains an important historical document, as does the Mayflower Compact, the Magna Carta and others.
Are you asking for our opinion, or strictly as a matter of actual law?
The only legal standning is that of declaring independence from the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. (The United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales today)
What he said....
Hi FP! Long time, no see. :wavey:
The Declaration of Independence was the official document that solidified the Colonies' resolve to break away from the tyrannical rule of King George. It stands important in that it spells out the grievances for justification of rebellion. With out these grievances laid out our rebellion would be an unjustified act. It is one of many documents that is the cornerstone for the building of just government.
The Constitution is that structure for the limitation of repressive govt.
Praise the power of the Almighty God for establishing such a great nation and may we never forget His bountiful blessings.
