The Declaration of Independence, The Gettysburg Address, The 2016 Election
1776 The Declaration of Independence – Our Safety and Happiness
“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal….
It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us … that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

“Americans See a Government Of, By, and For the Rich” is the title of a recent articlebyHarold Meyerson that recently appeared in the Washington Post and The American Prospect.
“Across party lines, Americans believe that our economic system is rigged to favor the wealthy and big corporations, and that our political system is, too—so much so that by nearly a 2-to-1 margin (64 percent to 36 percent), Americans believe their “vote does not matter because of the influence that wealthy individuals and big corporations have on the electoral process.” Seehttp://prospect.org/article/americans-see-government-and-rich-0
This is new evidence that many Americans now recognize their reality more clearly. Their “safety and happiness” have not been protected – with crash violence being just one major example.
Since 1900, NHTSA has counted motor vehicle deaths to now exceed 3,688,000 lives lost. Injuries amount to an estimated 904 million people injured.
Currently each average day in the U.S.A. motor vehicles are involved in about 100 deaths, 400 serious injuries, and result in NHTSA estimated losses of about $2 Billion. See https://www.careforcrashvictims.com/clock.php
