"Obama Calls For A New Declaration of Independence"

From the DC Examiner:

"BALTIMORE -- President-elect Barack Obama capped the first day of his inaugural celebration here before a crowd of about 40,000 people by calling for a “new Declaration of Independence” and a return to the idealism of 1776.

The "old" Declaration of Independence justifies the creation of the new country thusly:

"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...."

As has been thoroughly documented, President-Elect Obama voted twice to deny the first, necessary right of the Declaration, the right to life, to children born in the State of Illinois. The Illinois Born-Alive Infants Protection Act sought to assure that every child born alive in the state of Illinois would receive medical care. Simple as that. Twice Obama spoke and voted against this.

No wonder he wants to get rid of the "old" Declaration. It's a standing condemnation of his career.
