*** begin quote ***
President Barack Obama removed the reference to the “Creator” from the Declaration of Independence when he quoted a portion at a meeting of the Congressional Hispanic Congress.
Obama said, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
But the the actual quotation is: “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.”
*** end quote ***
This is a BFD!
Don’t just whiz by this and dismiss it as trivial.
Remember the old saying: “What Congress gives; it can take away!”
Up until the American Revolution, RIGHTS were granted by the King. And, the King could take them away; just as fast as they were granted. Then, the Dead Old White Guys came along and said your rights come from the Creator; not any human being. Even an atheist could say: “I have these rights because I am me! Ts; deal with it!”.
By, even inadvertently, failing to quote the DOI correctly, he begins the slow methodical journey back to a time when “the ruler” decided what RIGHTS the subjects would have. And, don’t think for a moment that any “oversight” is a trivial mistake. These are fighting words. Because the next step is the Death Camps of Auschwitz! And, don’t tell me for a minute that it can’t happen here. Can you say Japanese Internment?
No, we have to vigorously and irascibly defend the concept that no politicians and bureaucrats gives us our RIGHTS!
Look at the TSA and tell me that our Fourth Amendment rights are NOT in the toilet.
