Obama’s Inaugural Address: A Perversion Of The Founders’ Vision…

founding-fathers-declaration-of-independenceObama premised his inaugural address today on the Founders, citing the famous second sentence of 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.”

But everybody knows that the Founders, who created the country on the bedrock of suspicion of centralized power, would never have countenanced today’s welfare state. And so liberals must do some revisions to the 18th century texts that supposedly guide our lives.

And therefore Obama continued:

“Today we continue a never-ending journey to bridge the meaning of those words with the realities of our time.”

Uh oh. Look out. We’re going to bridge Jefferson’s words with “reality.” That means, of course, we are going to change Jeffersons words.
