In the President’s inaugural address, he quoted our 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.”
And, while all the ObamaPhone low information voters fawned and swayed with mouths agape and drool falling off their faces, he continued by adding,“Our union was founded on the principles of liberty and equality.”
“Hey, Mr. President. … no … it wasn’t!!”
As Pat Buchanan pointed out a few days ago in this video, our American Union was NOT founded on the principle of “equality.” “Equality” is NOT mentioned in the Constitution; “equality” is NOT mentioned in the Bill of Rights; “equality” is NOT mentioned in the Federalist Papers. How could equality be a founding principle of a nation, six of whose 13 original states had legalized slavery, and five of whose first seven presidents owned slaves all their lives?
What the President preached to his perpetually irritated and dumbed down dependent constituents in his inaugural was NOT historical truth, but progressive propaganda, an Orwellian rewrite of American history.
The skinny socialist thinks the only reason “it” didn’t work before is because it wasn’t him in control. He and the progressive socialist Democrats don’t think beyond their own power, and never learn the lessons of history, or don’t give a crap about the lessons of history.
Socialism is not, was not, and never will be about the stated goals of economics, fairness, or any other egalitarian interests. It is solely about concentrating power by any means necessary. All those stated goals are just the excuses for taking the liberties of another by force – “it’s what’s best for everybody.”
It boils down so succinctly … you can view all the principle issues and eventual outcomes in this one old and original video, “Make Mine Freedom”
It’s a cartoon—so maybe even Obama supporters will be able to grasp it—or at least enjoy the pretty colors between tokes of the doobies they buy with their food stamp cards.
