Declaring what has always been doesn't mean that they did not exist before the declaration. The rights mentioned were granted by the Creator and thus have always been. That they were declared was not for the purpose of now saying to all folks, "hey, the government now says that you have these rights which before today you did not have." Instead it was to say to the government, "these rights have always existed, were granted by the Creator, and they are not to be taken away by the government."

Bass ackwards.
