Thank you for pointing that out Krazyshot.

Post amended to reflect a more accurate appraisal of the situation.

Its the Declaration of Independence...posted on Independence day...not political agenda.

Just bc trump supporters and trump himself do not read (including the dol) does not mean it is liberal propoganda...quit dumbing down American.

Sorry this offends some people...quite sad actually

Trump's supporters are okay with him acting as a tyrant would. It's just not polite for anyone to say anything about it.

They should be. Unfortunately neither side could probably tell the difference if they were read them.

Throw in Lincoln's Gettysburg Address as another they would get mixed up on. I've met people who thought the line, "Four score and seven years ago..." was in the Constitution...

It's sad how much we have forgotten about who we are.

It's very telling that Trump supporters thought the words from the declaration of independence were an attack on Trump.

It seems deep down even they know he's a tyrant.

Actually they don't have to think that at all. The left constantly says THEY think it, so it's likely they thought this was yet another instance of the left going crazy and disparaging Trump.

Was the Declaration of Independence, and the establishment of the style of government not very liberal given it's time?
Technically...


CORRECT.

Given the historical context, the Founding Fathers were radically liberal for their TIME. They advocated unconventional CHANGE and PROGRESS...tossing OUT centuries of traditional governance.

I think we can all agree users on Twitter are generally the worst of the worst for all demographics. Tens of millions of Twitter accounts are fake and don't belong to an actual person anyway.

Some on the far right can be equally obtuse to some on the far left. Obviously the DOI is a very important document in world history. And it was and still is revolutionary. It does not take a partisan political stance.
