Hobbes, Locke, and Cicero be damned. President Obama single handedly overturns Natural Law. Friday evening President Obama addressed the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. At around 22:30, he incorporates part of the preamble of The Declaration of Independence, removing "Creator".
"We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal..... endowed with certain unalienable rights, life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"
After President Obama says "created equal...", there is a long pause during which he scowls and blinks several times. For once, he may actually have opted to not read something that was on the teleprompter. Is looks like he is disgusted and decided it would be better not to read what the preamble actually says.
President Obama, if our Creator is not the purveyor of our human rights, then who is? The government?
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.
Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
Was probably going to say “by Allah”.
No pop-up and warnings... watch directly.
Does his addled brain actually suppose that we are created without a Creator? How would that even be possible?
God is gonna be upset.
When Obama was a state senator, he was responsible for keeping a vote from coming to the floor regarding partial birth abortion.
Pro-life advocates told him that he was responsible for babies dying and after he left the state senate they would be able to pass it because his obstruction would no longer be there. He agreed that that was true.
While he was state senator, he let it be known that the consitution should have been written "all men are born equal" rather than "all men are created equal". You can guess the implications of that regarding abortion. This is likely why he scowled when uttering these words as mentioned in the article. He found himself forced to backtrack on what he had said in Chicago.
At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years. At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide. (Lincoln)
I think you’re right, it’s the abortion implications.
He is delusional. She is the worst speaker of the House ever
‘O’ is stupid scum!
Short and sweet,,, He’s a butt wart...
or by the Teleprompter.
When Øbongo first heard the Ten Commandments he thought the first one was referring to him: ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.’
when you have no Creator, the State owns you, he’s just a good little Commie
IMHO, that part of the Preamble is what students should be taught to recite - instead of the Pledge of Allegiance.
I always knew this f—ker was an atheist commie and now this proves it.
He omitted it because he believes that government is the one that gives us any rights that we have, not God.
In socialism/communism, Government is an idol (false god).
I can't stand to sit through 24 minutes of him talking but I would like to see this clip.
