Hillary’s Latest Constitutional Gaffe

posted on February 26, 2016

As most A1F Daily readers already know, “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” is, in fact, not a constitutional right, but a phrase from the Declaration of Independence. “Heckuva gaffe to have in the middle of an intensifying debate over the Supreme Court,” Republican National Committee spokesman James Hewitt said in a statement.
