Beautiful moment tonight with Bruce Hornsby doing a little Levon Helm tribute.
The best day of my life.
"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. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…"
So when, between 1776 and today, did the conversation shift from how the government would protect the Rights which are already ours by virtue of our creation, to what rights the government should give us?
