#DeclarationOfIndependence Draft 1: The King has "waged cruel War against human Nature itself, violating its most sacred Rights of Life & Liberty in the Persons of a distant People" by kidnapping & enslaving them.

Spoiler: #Slavery got cut in round 2. /thread #HappyFourthOfJuly
I'm not making this up. Here's more on the passage about #slavery that #ThomasJefferson put in the 1st draft of the #Declaration & took out of later drafts. #BlackLivesMatter blackpast.org/african-americ…
More on why #ThomasJefferson removed his fiery indictment of #slavery from later drafts of the Declaration. Fact that he was enslaving people as he wrote it was NOT the reason! #1619 #1776 history.com/news/declarati…

#Qanon post 3800: Q points out an old picture posted with #GeorgeWashinton riding a #DurhamBoat during the #RevolutionaryWar and it being a hint at the time Q started. #RobertDurham helped make boats & cannons during the 18th century. Any family ties to Robert & #JohnDurham?
#GeorgeTaylor, one of the signers of the #DeclarationOfIndependence managed at #Durham’s factories. He partnered with James Logan who worked for the #Penn family and William Allen.
Just saw this cool #Qproof meme floating around. Nice!

So it started with this comment to a post on the #righttokeepandbeararms:

"People, our rights were given us by the #Constitution. Those rights you are talking about were NOT given by #God!"
There are folks who believe this claim to be true. For example, @ChrisCuomo, who famously declared on his news program, "our rights do not come from God." (He offered no explanation of why #ThomasJefferson was wrong to claim that they do, in the #DeclarationofIndependence.)
But the assertion that our rights come from the Constitution would be #foreign to those that drafted, debated, and ratified the #BillofRights:

@EricHolder has asked an important question:

#When was #America #ever #great?

I realize that there is a nearly unavoidable tendency to snort and spew one's coffee when they hear or read his question for the first time. But, honestly, isn't it worth the exercise to answer it?
So, @EricHolder, I'm going to do just that, and I'm going to ask my ragtag bag of followers and detractors to contribute as well.

I'm going to offer my evidence of moments of American greatness. And I'm going to ask those that read this thread to do the same.
But wait!

There's more!

I'm going to ask my detractors and antagonists (are you seeing this @fedupaton) to contribute as well, and will welcome from them both moments of greatness and moments of shame.

...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.

A tweet-storm of the #DeclarationOfIndependence, July 4, 1776. Part Two.
establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:
For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:
For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

A tweet-storm of the final text of the #DeclarationofIndependence, July 4, 1776. Part One.

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.
