  1. The change we urgently need, a change consistent with the
    American ideal, is not movement away from but toward our founding principles. At this important time, we need a restatement of Constitutional conservatism grounded in the priceless principle of ordered liberty articulated in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

    The conservatism of the Declaration asserts self-evident truths based on the laws of nature and nature’s God. It defends life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It traces authority to the consent of the governed. It recognizes man’s self-interest but also his capacity for virtue.

    Would the above statement be considered "klannish" ?
  2. If fundamentalist thinking is in play, yes it is klannish...

  3. Klannish is your new favorite word eh? Seriously, a skilled enough rhetorician would take the assertions in that and just
    come away with the interpretation that they were justified in doing anything they wanted to do towards anyone they wanted to do it to. Laughable; for children like the teabaggers.
