A mind is a terrible thing to waste
I can't take it anymore. I've had it. I'm disgusted, flabbergasted and utterly shocked at the current condition of political thinking in, what was, this great nation.
Mark Levin had a piece of tape concerning an interview with John Lewis (D-GA) and his thoughts on where the Constitution authorizes the Government to pass healthcare legislation. Now, I'm going to paraphrase because I don't have the exact quote, but here it goes. Lewis contends that in the Preamble to the Constitution there exists the people's right to 'pursue happiness' and furthermore, healthcare is a human right. This coming from a United States of America House of Representatives elected Congressman. This comes from an individual who's been in the House for around 30 years. This comes from an individual who possesses the power to pass laws that affect the lives of millions of people. Folks--there's no hope for this Republic. I'm now convinced that we are beyond the point of no return. We are now being governed by fools and idiots. Why, you say, do you believe such incredible things?
Dear readers, consider the following: 1)There is no reference to the 'Pursuit of Happiness' in the Constitution. It's found in the Declaration of Independence.
2) Human rights are natural rights not given to us by other humans but acquired from our humanity, or from nature, God, or nature's God. Human rights can NEVER be given to people through , or by, the coercive acts of government. Ordinary rights can be conferred through law and are done so on a regular basis by government, but not human rights.
Lewis' position is not unique. Most of the democrats in the House of Representatives mouth the same nonsense. Therefore, I give up. I concede defeat. There's no hope. We are a nation of fools led by bigger fools headed for a swamp of fiscal insanity.
Our minds are gone--such a terrible waste!
(P.S.--I'm no really giving up--just reloading. OOPS!! Sorry, that's not allowed anymore--I'm retrenching).
