Founder of Daily Kos Tweets Incredible Ignorance of America’s Founding Principles

Aside from Newt winning Georgia, I don’t really care for SuperTuesday’s results. There was, however, one very gleeful highlight of the night

During Rick Santorum’s victory speech from Steubenville Ohio, the halfwit founder of liberal left propaganda website “the Daily Kos”, tweeted out the following breathtakingly stupid tweet:

This produced puzzled scoffs from the conservative side of twitter. Was he serious? Perhaps we can have an educated debate about what modern political philosophers believe is the source of our civil rights, but it is undeniable that the founders knew exactly where they came from, and it ain’t the government!

To wit:

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

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.

Again, if you’re some liberal degenerate trying to find a reason why I should pay for your healthcare, contraception, or student loans, maybe you want to have recourse other than God, especially if you’re a secularist. But you simply cannot deny that the founders believed these rights came from our Creator, not the state. To reiterate, it continues:

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…

But of course, a rape denier like Markos Moulitsas isn’t going to let something like the truth of history deter him! Onward Secular Idiots!!

So, as I tweeted, Markos believes that the founders drafted a Declaration of Independence without much thought, just kinda threw it together, because they were hungry for war maybe, and like the liberals of today, used the cloak of religion cynically to mask their pragmatic agenda. Seems reasonable enough.

 Thank goodness Markos is around to school us all on how stupid and inconsistent the founders were! They drafted the Constitution with principles that philosophically and essentially against those in the Declaration of Independence!

On the other hand, is there a simpler answer to our conundrum?

Might there be another explanation other than that the Founders were completely mixed up and inconsistent?

Oh wait, there is!


Or maybe he took a Constitutional course from Baraka Obama.
