Biden said the principles behind the Declaration of Independence led to passage of landmark legislation on civil rights, age discrimination, fair housing, those with disabilities, women and "the civil rights issue of our day, making it clear that you should be able to marry whoever you love period."
"Ladies and gentlemen, ultimately that's what we're celebrating today the continuation of the expansion of the notion that all men are created equal," he said Friday. "There's been a constant march in America on the road to guaranteeing every man, woman and child the dignity that you're entitled to. ...

I just shattered my screen with projectile vomit.
Was Chuck in the audience?
Biden has to pander. He’s too big an idiot to get votes otherwise.
Biden = Idiotdependent
What’s to celebrate? King George was a wild-eyed libertarian compared to what we live under today. Taxes? Virtually no taxes back then. Taxation with representation turned out to be slavery. The Founding Fathers would be so ashamed of us and what we have become.
We have a long way to go, baby.
