Our Constitution was designed to protect individual rights, and the Founders knew clearly that they wanted a republic, not a Democracy, where the
majority could not dictate the definition of rights of the minority.They did a reasonably good job in writing the Constitution but yielded to the
principle of democracy in compromising on the slavery issue.
How many times in the past ten years have we heard our leaders brag about our wonderful effort to institute democracy in the middle east, while
hearing nothing about promoting personal liberty, property rights, sound money, and free market, or a republic?
How can we "Spread our goodness" around the world through occupation and violence when here at home we have squandered our liberties and wealth?
Individual and natural rights are no longer cherished or understood.
it is this failed understanding that permits the welfare warfare state while destroying the concept of civil liberties and personal self ownership and
As a result of our careless thinking, our desire for government assistance, and the emphasis on unearned economic benefits over free markets and self
reliance, we have a society made up of various special interest groups demanding their "rights"
My guess is that the majority of you believe that citizens- especially if in need, have a "right" to medical care, free education, a house,
subsidized food, and endless other services. what they dont want to hear is that governments have nothing to pass out, since they produce nothing.
Anytime a government provides a benefit, it must first steal it from someone else who is producing it, thus violating the rights of that individual.
It is important to remember this.
