The framers framed the Constitution “to secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity.”
All that is needed to recover America’s noble past and prevent a calamitous future is a fuller appreciation of all liberty PROMISES & IMPLIES.
All men are born free (women too). When Government lets free people live in freedom, peace and safety, there is LIBERTY
Liberty is the freedom to live and be left alone, to gain, keep, use, trade and dispose of the just fruits of honest industry.
If Liberty is largely consumed in labor and the fruit of one’s labor is one’s property, (whether as wages, salary or profit).then any welfare act government commits is an act of theft under cover of law.
The principle of property stands guard against every form of wealth transfer (aka corporate/social welfare). Only we let our guard down a long time ago.
“Nobody can transfer to another more power than he has himself, and no one has a power to take the life or property of another” John Locke
Government may tax us, but only as much as it costs to PROTECT us (that’s way less than 25%of of annual federal spending)
Since Washington spends $680 billion on National Defense and $2.680 TRILLION on Income Security, alone, insofar as its vital role as PROTECTOR is concerned, government is only MOONLIGHTING
There is no problem the country now faces that a national welfare revolt won’t fix.
