But do citizens have the authority to use force against a...

...government which does NOT FOLLOW the law of the land?

The Declaration of Independence says we do:

"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to DISSOLVE THE POLITICAL BANDS which have connected them with another...

...that all men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights (Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness)...

...That to SECURE THESE RIGHTS, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED,

...That whenever ANY Form of Government becomes DESTRUCTIVE OF THESE ENDS, it is the RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO ALTER OR TO ABOLISH IT, and to institute NEW GOVERNMENT, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their SAFETY AND HAPPINESS.
