"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

Do We Play Taps Now

It may be premature, but we haven't heard a lot from Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness in a long, long time. We don't really know if they are still alive, but we fear they have passed. After all, look at the facts.

LIFE - Since Roe vs. Wade we are no longer entitled to Life. If someone determines we will live, we will. Otherwise, it's off to see our God before we even open our eyes.

Liberty - we don't really have liberty any longer. We are afraid to say what's on our minds because we might "offend" someone or some group. For instance, Merry Christmas we a staple heard everywhere in December when I was growing up. Not any longer, now it's "Happy Holidays". Please! Give me a break. And this is just a small example of the liberty losses we endure. Government mandates our safety, regulates our industry, and now even intends to determine how much compensation an executive, in a privately owned company, can get paid. They enslave us with hidden taxes and "fees" - haha, that one's funny, like we don't know it's really a tax! And they encumber our liberty with excessive spending and intolerable debt.

Pursuit of Happiness - Our government has made the determination that they will provide our happiness through "entitlement programs". The problem with that ideology is that by definition of their social justice programs they can only make less than 1/2 the country happy because the rest of us are paying the way for that happiness.

So I ask you, is Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness dead? Or are they just in exile? Let's hope the latter.

Wake Up America!
