Skip to comments.Obama Re-Writes Declaration of Independence to Leave Out "Creator"
Posted on 09/17/2010 5:40:13 PM PDT by BigBobber
So let me close by saying this. Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples. To British and French, to Dutch and Spanish, to Mexican -- (applause) -- to countless Indian tribes. We all shared the same land. We didnt always get along. But over the centuries, what eventually bound us together -- what made us all Americans -- was not a matter of blood, it wasnt a matter of birth. It was faith and fidelity to the shared values that we all hold so dear. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
He is not a Christian.
He does not believe in God.
He believes Communist ideology will bring about utopia.
Unbelievable. This is important. This is not just ignorance, or a mis-quote. To leave out the phrase ‘BY THEIR CREATOR’ (and the very meaning of “NATURAL” law) underpins the very concept of ‘inalienable” rights guaranteed to us by that declaration. These ‘natural’ laws are given to us through our Creator, and not by man.
These points are all expounded further within the Federalist Papers. When ‘by their Creator’ is left out there is no longer any rational (or for that matter legal) justification for the endowed “unalienable” rights. Rights that are inborn and independent of any man made laws. Once natural law is removed all of us become subjects of the government and our rights ‘inalienable’ or otherwise are now no longer determined by ‘natural’ law but by man made laws rather than God.
Folks, this is how freedom dies. The next step is tyranny.
obama was just quoting from the Stephen Hawking version
ergo, No Creator
First there was nothing
Then it exploded
You’ve inspired me. I’m making note about all this, it’s all tied up together.
Thanks. I have to teach a catechesis class, and this makes good material.
What a dolt. Endowed implies and endower... but I guess not in Obama’s mind where prosperity will just be endowed on us magically if we do what he says.
I noticed that too.
“to Mexican — (applause) — to countless Indian tribes”
Mexicans at that time were just one of the “countless Indian tribes”, so why is he singling them out for special recognition? If I was a Navajo I’d be miffed!
How come we choose from just two people to run for president and over fifty for Miss America?
Thanks. Honestly this just jolted me. If I weren’t already awake I would be now!
IMO he pretty much declared himself a dictator in this speech (not that very many dolts in this country will grasp the significance of this). He took away our ‘natural’ rights to liberty given to us by God by omitting that phrase. In doing so he has tonight stripped us of our ‘natural’ rights!
If this is not the beginnings of a real hard tyranny I don’t know what else would be short of gulags and prison camps. And now that he has re-written the Declaration and removed our God given ‘natural’ rights - they may be next!
Obama, is re-writing history again. The colonists were populated by English, German, Dutch, Irish, Welsh and Swedish people. Native Americans were already on this continent. He is giving a politically correct speech to please his audience but he is factually incorrect.
Did you see post 35?
Anyway, you said a mouthful.
Once the “creator” is removed “the peoples” inalienable rights go also.
God I hate what this bastard and his cadre of subversives are doing to our country.
A pox on their house!
More like he doesn’t know. He had a lot of education in a foreign land you know.
WOW - great minds think alike! :)
We the people seem to be waking up but it may well be too late. We’ll see but after that speech I’m not holding my breath we’ll be able to save this country without a blood bath.
Constitutional and founding principles of our republic Ping!
The would-be-dictator is at it again!
His commie a$$ needs to be tossed out of our white house and into jail. Effin poser.
Apparently their Creator actually IS above 0bama’s pay grade.
Thank you :). Now I got to save the page, and it clearly shows that there is a history revisionist in the WH. Nice and easy.
