Un-effin-believeable. THIS is the “most educated” President evah?
Some may say it was an accident that he left out “Creator”. But… and this is important, people… by ignoring that our unalienable rights come from Our Creator, he completely misses the mark on what makes America great! Before 1776, rights were seen to have been granted by Man (Kings, Queens, etc.) Our Founding Fathers’ brilliance was that they put a new stake in the ground of mankind.
Obama, our President, is a complete dope. I guess they forgot to teach the Declaration of Independence to him in his prep schools in Indonesia and at Harvard.
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
Good heavens. Can’t everyone but the utmost Bush-haters now see what a complete buffoon America has in the Oval Office?
So is he just stupid, or is he removing God from the DofI because his political philosophy is that rights come from the State, not the Creator? If we had a responsible media — we’d have known the answer to that question…. in 2007.
