Today's liberals say it
is basic human rights to have needs met at the expense of others, like
health care, food, and an education.
Yesterday's liberals felt it was a right
as well. As yesterday's liberals did, today's liberals use forced
servitude to achieve their goals. Of course we are all familiar with
how yesterday's liberals enslaved blacks and forced them to work as
slaves, so that the wealthy people had their so-called rights met.
But many do not see how today's liberals have enslaved tax-payers.
Those of us who pay taxes are forced to give a huge
amount of our money to the masters. The masters are the politicians
who buy votes with free stuff, and those who receive the free stuff are
also the masters. So what about the basic human right that is
freedom? It's what our founding fathers spoke of.
founding fathers said 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. It baffles me that our founding fathers could write such
a thing and yet not free the slaves of their day. I was shocked when I
learned that George Washington had slaves.
It is easy to
believe our founding fathers were perfect, to forget that they were people
like people of today. The fact of it is that while they said pretty
things, they did not always up to what they said. I am sure
this sounds familiar.
Just as it was wrong for our
founding fathers to allow slavery to continue in this country, so too
it is wrong for today's government to allow slavery. Our
basic human right is not health care or food or even an education. It
is freedom. All else grows from freedom. Without freedom we do not truly
have the right to the pursuit of happiness. We hear this all the time
today, that we should not want more than someone else has, even if we work
Without freedom we are at the mercy of
whoever it is that is keeping us in bondage. And THAT is why we
Americans are in bondage to our government today. We cannot earn a living
without paying money that goes to the masters. We cannot buy anything
without paying money to the masters. We cannot even die without
paying money to the masters.
When you cannot earn a living without
giving some of your money to those who do not earn it, then you are not
free. It is that simple. Public schools, welfare, social security,
Medicare, Medicaid; these things are what began modern-day slavery in
America. We (as a people) are forced to pay into them and as a
result most are forced to use them to some degree at some point
in our lives. Hence, enters socialism. Then there are those people
who have never paid into them, who use them. They are the true
slave-owners of our day. The rest of us are the slaves and the people
caught in socialism. Anything but free.
There are other things that
stomp on our basic human right to freedom, like when people are forced to
hire someone they do not want working for them in their own business, or
when people are forced to serve someone they do not wish to
serve. Now we are forced to have health care coverage.
Socialism gives way to communism, which gives way to a dictatorship.
It is just a matter of time before all of those "masters" collecting money
for nothing from a system that they never put into are forced to get
up and work for that money. Then they will be crying.
Our basic human
