“We hold these truths to be self evident”

founding-fathers7The founding fathers, in the Declaration of Independence, stated, “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.”

Surprisingly I have found that the vast majority of our society no longer finds these truths to be self evident, in fact they can no longer find an origin for them at all.  A mind shift has taken place, and for the most part our society believes that the states have the right to declare what our rights are.
