Cruella de Vil Hillary Clinton caught herself before she repeated Lincoln’s phrase from the Gettysburg Address, “under God”. Modern Democrats would sooner chew ground glass than acknowledge God as being the source of our unalienable rights.
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.
The contemporary Democrats are much too reactionary, much too beholden to an all-powerful State, to sign on to such truly revolutionary sentiments.
