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.

The principle of discussion for this Constitution Monday comes from Article I.3.5, "In case the Vice President is not available to preside over the Senate, the Senate will choose one of its own members to serve as president pro tempore." The Senators have the right to elect one of their group to preside over the Senate in the absence of the Vice President.
