The Declaration Of Independence states that "all men are created equal, and they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights...". The problem our nation faces today is that Democrats/Liberals/Progressives don't believe in God, so it follows that they don't believe in God-given rights. The only God they worship is the power of government, and they truly believe that all rights flow from government to the rabble being governed, and leftists get their power by doling out money and benefits to the masses and making the citizenry more dependent on the goodies they dispense at tax payer's expense.
The defined powers statement listed in Amendment 10 of the Constitution, which Obama and members of the House and Senate have sworn to uphold and defend, is directly related to the Declaration Of Independence's "endowed" phrase, and liberal politicians have failed to uphold their sworn duties by subverting the Constitution and allowing Obama to: edict immigration law in contradiction to legislation, issue regulations via the EPA that deny people and businesses their property rights, halt drilling for oil we badly need in the Gulf, refuse oil offered by Canada, sue states that try to enforce laws that Obama doesn't favor, pushes for a United Nations treaty to tax us and take away our right to bear arms, and many other instances of deliberately denying creator-given and legislatively passed laws and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.
If we don't rid ourselves of the leftist scum that Obama represents and the rights curtailment he tries to impose on America, our children and grandchildren will suffer forever.
