SO WE NEED A NEW DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE?
According to Fox News, president elect Obama (unless the Supreme Court does its job) has proclaimed the need for a new
Declaration of Independence.
"What is required is a new declaration of independence, not just in our nation, but in our own lives -- from ideology and small thinking, prejudice and bigotry -- an appeal not to our easy instincts but to our better angels," he said to a cheering crowd at 30th Street train station.
Do you suppose the words of the founders who wrote, "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. " which clearly uphold the right to life of the pre-born are just a bit too forthright for our "Dear Leader"?
