Who wants to live on stolen property anyway? – An analysis of the Gettysburg Address.

America is stolen property.

The British stole it from the Native Americans.  (Hence the ‘Native’ part)

Hence the first verse of the Gettysburg Address is wrong.  (The rest is perfectly good.)

Gettysburg Address:

Line 1) Four score and seven years ago
Line 2) our fathers
brought forth on this continent
Line 3) a new nation, conceived in liberty,
Line 4) and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

What’s wrong with it?  Well…

Line 1 – Nothing wrong (At the time of writing)
Line 2 – HOW ABOUT MOTHERS???!!!!
Line 3 – NEW nation???  The Native American tribes had America WAYYY before the Brits!!!!!!
Line 4 – All MEN?????  WHAT ABOUT WOMEN???!!!?!??!?!
