Vice President "Edits" The Declaration of Independence

Vice President Kamala Harris is in "hot water" after an obvious attempt to censor the most important words in America's Declaration of Independence.

The words in question are in the second paragraph of the Declaration, where it says: "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."

Vice President Harris was speaking in Tallahassee, Florida, on the 50th anniversary of the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. That decision claimed there was a right to abortion in the U.S. Constitution. The Roe case was thankfully overturned last year in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization.

In her speech, Harris cited the famous words in the Declaration of Independence, but only after she had removed the three most important words and ideas the American founders had expressed.

The Vice President said, "A promise we made in the Declaration of Independence, that we are each endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

First, Kamala Harris leaves out the word "Creator." The founders believed the God of the Bible, our Creator, was the source of our liberty — not the government. After Harris dropped "our Creator" she had to leave out the word "unalienable" when describing our rights. Unalienable means that since our rights come from God they can not be legitimately taken away by the government or anyone else. Finally, Harris conspicuously leaves out the right to "life," the first right the founders listed in the sentence Harris was hacking away at. Our founders knew nearly 250 years ago that without the right to life, enjoying any other rights is impossible. But Harris could not admit a right to life while she was promoting abortion.

The founding idea of America is often no longer taught in our public schools because it flies in the face of our increasingly secular society and socialist big government. Other progressives have also edited out God from the Declaration of Independence, including former President Obama and President Biden. Vice President Harris has now gone even further by "censoring" the profound revolutionary idea that our entire constitutional republic rests on. Shame on her.

We recommend you use this controversy to have a discussion with your children and grandchildren about these key words in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, and challenge them to commit those words to memory.
