What the Founders wanted government to be.
“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, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
Consider the above and then consider Social Security. The Great Socialist FDR and his Democrats in the Kongress foisted this bastard child on us, without one vote from the people. What right does the government have to force an employer to fork over a certain percentage of THEIR capital to a “trust fund” or to force an employee to surrender their money, without a vote, to add to that trust fund? None. And of course it always starts with, “its only 1%,” or, “its for the children,”
How many millions of Americans have been bilked out of their money since this Ponzi Scam was foisted upon us? How many Americans have worked their lives, say, a single man, never marries, has no kids, and dies at age 60, before being able to draw any money out of SS? Millions. Men that fought in WW2 and had money taken out and died during the war or worse yet, years later from their wounds, with no wife or kids. What gave the government the right to STEAL their money? No right. No law. Just a scam passed by a Democrat Kongress and signed off on by a Socialist criminal hopefully burning in Hell but in any event, theft pure and simple.
If a man comes into your home and attempts to use force to rob, rape, or murder you, it is a crime not only against property but also a violation of that most basic right, the Right to Life. How is it different if a group of tyrants 3,000 miles away rob you and yours through excessive taxation, wasteful spending, or Ponzi Scams like Social Security? The Gunny argues this with a Proggy not long ago and when he asked the Proggy WHY are ALL Democrat hatched programs mandatory? If they are so great, would not the people flock to them without being forced to? Insert crickets here and another squashed Proggy. The Natural Law, therefore the Rights to enjoying the fruit’s of one’s labor (production), a free exchange of goods and services, and private property rights (think Property taxes) are stripped away from us by a group of 535 Americans, mostly stupider than a pile of dog crap, in order for our own good! When asked WHY can’t Americans plan for their own retirement without the government interfering and of course, WHERE in the Constitution it permits this, the Proggy was toast.
Consider the welfare state that the Democrats created solely to enslave their citizens and to keep the Black race voting for them en masse, i.e., LBJ’s statement on Blacks voting for the Dems for the next 100 years. Consider that the government promises these takers the money that other people have earned, thus depriving them of the fruits of their labor (robbing Peter) in order to buy the votes of the Takers (in order to pay Paul). Any dissent is called racist and those who resist are targeted by the IRS for “special treatment” ala Lois Lerner/Obama. More and more “citizens” are voting for a living on the backs of others and now Obama wants to allow millions of looters and criminals Amnesty via an illegal edict, as the theft continues, whether robbing taxpayers for the Looters or printing more and more worthless money and destroying the worth of money saved.
Theft is theft, whether done by an individual, a group, or an elected body acting outside of the Constitution. Think of the Occupy idiots, the darlings of the Democrat Party, who seek to TAKE property away from others whom they “deem” to have more! The tyranny of the majority does not legitimize theft. This is something that the Left simply refuses to grasp. A criminal act is a criminal act no matter WHO or WHAT allows it to happen. Acting under orders did not help the Nazis at Nuremburg and it sure as Hell doesn’t justify theft by government today.
Consider the attack and sacking by the Feds at Waco. Just following Reno’s orders? Just following BJ Bubba Clinton’s orders? It was wrong. They duty of the government is to PROTECT the Rights of the Citizens, not murder them for following said Rights. As a matter of fact it is the DUTY of the government to use the force of law or duty authorized violence to protect the physical safety of the citizens and defend their borders, livelihoods, and their homes against any and all threats, from diseases like Ebola or criminal invaders from Mexico, bringing in diseases and pestilence.
In conclusion, it can be rightly said that the government, especially under Obama, treats the Constitution as something to be avoided, pissed on, stepped on and over, and has abandoned all pretense to performing the required essential functions of government as CLEARLY outlined in the US Constitution, i.e., Dingy Reid and NO budget since 2009! It has failed at its duties miserably. It can be said that when the government acts outside of their Enumerated Powers, when they oppress their citizens through threats like the IRS vs Conservatives or murder them at Waco and routinely violates their God-given Rights, i.e., FEC wanting to limit political speech on the internet, than it is no longer a legitimate authorized government but a Kleptocracy run by a Kakistocracy and resistance to their tyranny is not only patriotic but required under the eyes of God as vanquishing evil and implementing equal justice under the law.
And who were the ones who denied God three times at their Convention?
