Many look to the Constitution seeking that Right to resist, but it is not there. The Right to resist is found in the Declaration of Independence.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are 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.

Very TRUE.And The Declaration of Independence ,like the Mayflower Compact, and the Articles of Confederation , and the Northwest Ordinance are listed as Organic Law/ Fundamental Law unless I am mistaken. And it seems Jefferson -for whatever reason changed the fundamental Rights of Life, Liberty , and Property to read Life ,Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Which has been sadly abused by the Pagans.
