#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…
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…

#ThomasJefferson: 󾓦"He examinado todas las supersticiónes del mundo y no encuentro en nuestra superstición de la "CRISTIANDAD" una Sola cualidad que la SUSTENTE. Todas las religiones están basadas en fábulas y mitología.

*Millones de hombres_
_mujeres y niños inocentes desdé la introducción de la cristiandad han sido QUEMADOS, TORTURADOS, MULTADOS Y PUESTOS EN PRISIÓN.
¿Con qué propósito y que afecto ha tenido ésta manipulación? el hacer la mitad de la población mundial unos tontos y la otra mitad unos hipócritas, _
_al sustentar u perpetuar tales y terribles errores por todo el mundo 🌐". 󾓦

1) #Charlottesville Virginia, an area of less than 236k citizens (inc 7 surrounding counties) with WAY too many issues, too many connections to the top echelon of the Cabal that seemingly sets the tone for the rest of our country. There ARE no coincidences! Let's take a peek.
2) Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mtns, Cville and specifically the #UniversityofVirginia were once a beacon of hope, and represent #ThomasJefferson 's attempt to help fledgling America counter the black magik and control of the #Cabal, avoid indoctrination, and succeed as a country.
3) Charlottesville was named after Queen Charlotte. It is believed that her interest in claiming the area was due to the dark energy from the Ancient Aztecs and their extremely evil activities. TJ hoped to negate this influence by using occult knowledge to engage the light.

But for every other country on earth, the #UnitedStates is the absolute worst country on earth.
We cherish #liberty but not enough to hang politicians for their every #encroachment on it.

(Remember, according to #ThomasJefferson (and all the natural rights philosophers who preceded him), the purpose of the government is to #securetheseliberties among men.)

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:

It is NOT true that #ThomasJefferson excised ALL of Jesus’ miracles from his so-called “bibles” (abridgements of the Gospels). Even if it was true, it is not entirely clear to me what it says about Jefferson or his goals in abridging the Gospels. #JeffersonBible
“Life and Morals of Jesus,” e.g., one of Jefferson’s “bibles,” includes Luke 14:4 (in French), reporting that Jesus healed a man with dropsy. (NB: the precise contents of "Philosophy of Jesus,” another Jefferson “bible,” is unknown, but its table of texts includes Luke 14:1-6.)
“Jefferson Bible” is a title some have given to one or both of two abridgements of the Gospels created by Thomas Jefferson, circa 1804 and 1820 respectively, by cutting selected passages from printed New Testaments, rearranging them, and then pasting them onto blank pages. #Bible

@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.
