The left in America uses the revision of history as a tool to implement social change, be it in the schools, in government, and in the culture. And usually what that means is disparaging European accomplishments, culture, and the civilization we brought to the rest of the world. The founders of America are often targeted more so than others… and in this case, it’s Thomas Jefferson and an argument over a PERIOD in the Declaration of Independence.
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness’ is often followed by a period in the Declaration. Which separates it from the next line about the institution of government. And that implies that government is less important than our ‘unalienable rights.’
Historian Danielle Allen says the period after ‘Happiness’ shouldn’t be there. And if that’s the case, government should be regarded as just as important as those rights.
The argument put forth here, according to this schizophrenic psychotic leftist calling herself a historian, is that Jefferson was really a Marxist that wanted our government to guarantee and ensure (through legislation) its citizens a right to life, liberty, and happiness… i.e. to legitimize a bloating and never ending welfare state that the productive among us continue to float with our tax dollars every year!
Again, selectively using our history, our historical figures, and great European men (that they despise) to justify their schizophrenic psychotic cult called liberalism.
Even though the Declaration isn’t the law of the land… it’s one of the most important documents ever written in the history of mankind, and the implication is that, this was the intention of our founders.
Pay attention parents, turn off the fucking tv, open your eyes and get involved!
