President Obama admonished American citizens to live up to the Declaration of Independence, in his weekly radio address.

Interestingly, the address was made as if the 4th of July were already passed.

Obama said: “On July 4th, 1776, a small band of patriots declared that we were a people created equal – free to think and worship and live as we please.

The president continued: “And now, 237 years later, the United States – this improbable nation – is the greatest in the world. A land of liberty and opportunity. A global defender of peace and freedom. A beacon of hope to people everywhere who cherish those ideals.”

Obama asserted: “Generations of Americans made our country what it is today – farmers and teachers, engineers and laborers, entrepreneurs and elected leaders – people from all walks of life, from all parts of the world, all pulling in the same direction. And now we, the people, must make their task our own – to live up to the words of that Declaration of Independence, and secure liberty and opportunity for our own children, and for future generations.”



The words of Obama are interesting – coming from a man who complained about the constraints of the Founding Fathers only 3 months ago.
When Obama was speaking in Denver on his campaign to end our 2nd Amendment, he said: “You hear some of these quotes: ‘I need a gun to protect myself from the government.’ ‘We can’t do background checks because the government is going to come take my guns away.’ Well, the government is us. These officials are elected by you. They are elected by you. I am elected by you. I am constrained, as they are constrained, by a system that our Founders put in place.”
