Essentially it states the Enlightenment ideas that men were created equal and had rights. The second part tells what problems were in the colonies and that the king did nothing to correct them. Finally, it declares the colonies independent from the king.

The declaration of Independence didn't say anything about a "ruler". It was a letter to the king listing the reasons why the colonies wanted to be free and then declaring independence.

I'd say that the right to free speech and/or freedom of the press are the most violated rights in the declaration of independence.

Yes, the words declaration of independence alone are a noun, I believe. However, if one were to say "The United States Declaration of Independence," it would become a proper noun and therefore capitalized. I realize that to America, our Declaration of Independence is the only document of its kind and therefore is considered only a proper noun, but to other countries, it is not the same. It is a regular noun. When speaking of our document, they refer to it as the American Declaration of Independence.

nothing, the men that were writing the declaration of independence decided to not to put a natural right for slaves in it because they would not get enough signatures from the southern colonies.

the American people. I would have to disagree with that statement. Most of the Colonisits were not literate at the time that the Declaration was written, so they could not read it. I would have to say that the Declaration of Independence was addressed to the Parliment and the King of GB.
