Rights

“To secure (protect) those rights (that we are endowed by our Creator with), Governments are instituted among men.”

What to do when the government is the agent that is impinging on those rights? Read the Declaration of Independence and substitute the current adminstration for where it references King George and see if you don’t get a Chris Matthews-like thrill but instead of running up your leg, it will be prickling the hairs on the back of your neck.

The Hindu Bahagavad-Gita says that sin is seeking private gain at the expense of others. Most of the writers of our Constitution seemed to have an awareness of this universal truth and sought to fetter the central government from ever usurping that power. Our government has been invaded by un-American pretenders, like Senator Jay Rockefeller who recently said, “Most of the things we do are unconstitutional.” That this was not grounds for his removal for office and an investigation into the unconstitutional activities is a measure of how far over the precipice we have slipped.

The liberals who keep trying to drag us to socialism are like the dog in a manger. They have no use for the fodder therein, but bark madly to prevent us from using it to our own personal advantage. They could just relocate to one of the socialist states that haven’t collapsed yet. Instead they are like the stereotype of the hardcore religious who could not sleep at night with the idea that somewhere, someone is having a good time.

3rd career and 2nd childhood. Spends spare time repairing old things. Aspires to burn more gasoline, gunpowder, and ink in pursuit of slowing down. Child of the 60s and aspiring student of history. No desire to see us repeat the failed social experiments that keep failing for lack of human beings that meet the left wing standards and have to be killed off. Did engineering long enough to realize that very little is new and the wheel does not need to be reinvented.
