IN DEFENSE OF “THE LAW”

I’ve been watching, or rather reading, all of the vitriol spewing out of the media lately regarding the Government Shutdown, and who’s at fault. What I don’t seem to see though is any sort of intelligence regarding this mess.

I’ve seen people blaming the House Republicans for blocking the implementation of ObamaCare, as if that wasn’t their job. If Congress was not suppose to fight and argue, we could have just saved all that effort in 1776 and kept the King we had. Instead, yapping Statists keep trying to defend, what is probably the most ridiculous piece of legislation ever written. What makes this “debate” more pathetic is they are trying to defend it not on its merit, but by stating, “It’s the law”. Well yippee, does that mean we need to enforce prohibition (the 18th amendment to the Constitution – which the administration probably hasn’t read anyway), maybe we need to re-instate ‘Jim Crow’ or allow lynching in the South, I’m fairly certain that all of that was “the Law”. I would be willing to bet that in their heart of hearts Statists want to go back to Slavery, heck they opposed Emancipation in the first place and put most of the freedom restrictive laws on the books to begin with.

Of course, you will never hear a modern ‘Liberal’ admit that, to them the parties have shifted position. The Republicans of Lincoln and Roosevelt (Theodore not FDR) are what the modern ‘Liberal’ consider Democrats today. Without a doubt, it shows their ignorance of history, or even a limited grasp of real Freedom to think that for one minute Abraham Lincoln would agree with any of their re-distribution policies, or Teddy would support the segregation of the United States into warring factions, rich against poor, black versus white, young against old.
Not bloody likely, Teddy once said; "There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all." … So I think the Kingmakers need to reevaluate their idea of what a ‘Liberal’ is, and what make them different from Conservatives.

Without a doubt, Conservatives have their flaws, but I would happily err on the side of too much freedom, rather then too much Government. All we need in this country is for the Government to excuse itself from our lives, and we have shown in the past that we can create wonderful things. As freemen, we invented the Airplane, linked the continent with bands of iron, set a man on the Moon and created the internet. How then can people trade that birthright for one of servitude and privation? Freedom is one rare gem in human history, one that cannot be bought, but can be sold…
