“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.”
The Declaration of Independence addresses a number of important issues: “All men are created equal,” says one. It acknowledges that God Almighty is the Creator of all things and does not state “evolved,” but rather “created.”
The Declaration goes on to explain that men are 2) “endowed by their Creator,” which means that God has given us certain things termed 3) “unalienable rights,” if there is any doubt as to what the Founders intended. Government does not provide men these rights; rather, the All-Powerful God does. The aim of government is then explained by the Founding Fathers.
4) “Governments are formed among Men to secure these rights.” Therefore, the function of government is to uphold the liberties bestowed upon us by our Creator. Think about it!
5) The Declaration also states that the “consent of the governed” is how the government comes to be in power. This implies that the only authority the government has is the authority “we the people” provide it.
Amazingly, the Declaration of Independence sheds a great deal of information on contemporary political parties.
The Democratic Party platform completely lacks the word “Creator” in relation to the LORD God Almighty. The term “God” is also highly divisive in relation to this policy, with party members specifically voting it out during the 2012 Democratic National Convention. You can see this happening on video. The individual conducting the vote appeared unable to accept what he was seeing or hearing, so they had to vote three times. The Democrats even jeered at God during the same convention, and in 2020 they decided not to include him in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Despite all of this, the term “God” is not mentioned in the 2020 Democratic Party platform. Page 23 does include the phrase “God-given,” referring to people’s “God-given potential,” but from what I can see, this was an afterthought.
In comparison, the 2016 Republican Party platform uses the terms “Creator” and “God” multiple times throughout the document, but only once in the prologue. The first five words of the Texas GOP’s preamble, “Affirming our belief in God,” address God.

Liberals call this “full MAGA.” So I guess that means MAGA is Christian and the Democratic platform is not.
The contrast between the two party platforms is starkly different, with Democrats promising to give us things, and Republicans promising to protect the things already given to us by God.
How can Democrats reflect in their platform that they do not support the founding document of the United States, and at the same time claim they “are fighting for a better, fairer, and brighter future for every American”? People who do not believe in the God mentioned in the founding document of our nation certainly cannot believe in God-given unalienable rights, either. Unbelieving Democrats have totally missed the truth that our Founding Fathers expressed, which is that the purpose of government is to ensure that we have and keep these God-given rights.
