"We celebrate the principles that are timeless, tenets first declared by men of property and wealth but which gave rise to what Lincoln called a new birth of freedom in America — civil rights and voting rights, workers' rights and women's rights, and the rights of every American," Obama said from a White House balcony with first lady Michelle Obama at his side."MEN OF PROPERTY AND WEALTH."
NOT MEN WHO HAD RISKED ALL AND CREATED PROSPERITY,
THEY WERE "MEN OF WEALTH".
AS IF THEY JUST HAPPENED TO HAVE PROPERTY AND JUST HAPPENED TO BE WEALTHY.
NOT THAT THEY TOILED FOR IT AND WERE ENTITLED TO KEEP THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR.
- THIS REVEALS A BASIC MISUNDERSTANDING COMMON TO MOST LEFTISTS
- LEFTISTS THINK THE RICH GOT THEIR MONEY UNFAIRLY AND THAT MONEY GROWS ON TREES
- AND YOU CAN TAX AND SPEND AND REGULATE YOUR WAY TO PROSPERITY.
- OF COURSE THE SUBTEXT OF THIS COMMENT IS ALSO THAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS WERE WHITE SLAVEHOLDERS - ANOTHER OLD LEFTIST CHESTNUT
- WHICH OBAMA - AS POTUS - SHOULDN'T HAVE UTTERED ON THE DAY COMMEMORATING OUR NATION'S BIRTH.
UPDATE: LARD-ASS LEFTIST PIECE OF CRAP NYTIMES DRAMA CRITIC TURNED POLITICAL COMMENTATOR FRANK RICH TROTTED OUT THIS SAME OLD LEFTIST CHESTNUT TO OPEN HIS COLUMN TODAY:
ALL men may be created equal, but slavery, America’s original sin of inequality, was left unaddressed in the Declaration of Independence signed 234 years ago today.SHEESH: AS IF LIBERATING US FROM THE TYRANNY OF BEING SUBJECTS WITHOUT RIGHTS TO A KING WASN'T ENOUGH ON THEIR PLATES!
IN FACT, THE ISSUE WAS ADDRESSED AT THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION (WHERE IT WAS FITTING AND PROPER TO ADDRESS IT) AND SLAVERY WAS ESSENTIALLY GIVEN A DEATH SENTENCE IN IT:
REPEAT: "Article 1 Section 9 protected the slave trade for twenty years."
The Act Prohibiting Importation of Slaves of 1807 is a United States federal law that stated, in accordance with the Constitution of the United States, that no new slaves were permitted to be imported into the United States.
This act effectively ended the legal transatlantic slave trade. However, slavery continued in the United States until the end of the Civil War and the adoption of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.
The United States Constitution, Article 1 Section 9 protected the slave trade for twenty years. Only after 1808 could laws be passed to end the slave trade.
The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.
THIS EFFECTIVELY WAS DEATH SENTENCE FOR THE SLAVE TRADE, ALBEIT IT ONE THAT REQUIRED A BLOODY CIVIL WAR TO ENFORCE IT:
- 650,000 KILLED;
- 650,000 WOUNDED -
- AND THE NATION'S TREASURE DIVERTED TO WAR FOR 5 YEARS.
BECAUSE IT'S ESSENTIALLY AN ATTEMPT TO DELEGITIMIZE OUR CONSTITUTION.
- THEY WANT TO DELEGITIMIZE OUR CONSTITUTION BECAUSE AS STATISTS AND COLLECTIVISTS, LEFTISTS WANT A STRONGER STATE THAN THE FOUNDERS WANTED AND CREATED;
- LEFTISTS NEED A STRONG STATE BECAUSE TO TO INFLICT LEFTISM ON THE PEOPLE YOU MUST FORCIBLY TAKE AWAY THEIR RIGHTS.
IT'S JUSTICE IN THEIR TWISTED MINDS, TIT-FOR-TAT.
WE CAN TEACH BARRY HUSSEIN SOETORO OBAMA JUNIOR AND FRANK RICH AND THEIR COMRADES A LESSON THIS NOVEMBER: VOTE FOR PATRIOTS; VOTE GOP!
