What Liberals think vs Reality

What Liberals think- If we are really nice to Islamists, and show them we want peace, they will like us

Reality- They will still want to cut your head off or blow you up

What Liberals think- Rights come from big government

Reality-Rights come from God, they are Natural Rights

What Liberals think- Equality is the ultimate Utopia

Reality- Liberals prefer “equality” to liberty, even if that equality is an equality of suffering under Totalitarianism

What Liberals think- The States enforcement of the “common good” is more important than individual rights

Reality- Once the “common good” supersedes individual liberty, no liberty is safe, and ultimately, the “common good” will be decided by some for of dictatorship

What Liberals Think- Freedom of speech is sacrosanct, as long as that speech does not contradict Liberalism, then it is hate speech

Reality- Freedom of speech IS sacrosanct, no matter who it offends

What Liberals Think- Armed citizens rarely if ever use guns in self-defense, so strict gun control will reduce violent crime

Reality- Guns are used hundreds of thousands of times annually by Americans to defend themselves, so disarming the people will cause a dramatic increase in violent crime

The danger of equating “rights” with “needs”

90 Miles has a great example

ninetymiles1bdzo81s8kfyxo1_500

There is no Bill of Needs in the Constitution. There is a Bill of Rights. The single greatest founding principle of America is this. Our rights come from the Creator. they are natural rights. The government can neither give nor take these rights because these rights are as much a part of us as our hearts and minds are. Liberals love to talk of needs, telling us what we need, or do not need. How much we need how often we need to use our rights, and that our rights must be tempered by need. That is not an American ideal, that ideal comes from Marx, and should be rejected at all costs.

The proper response to anyone that seeks to equate your rights, and what they think you need is this

I think the Founders would approve

The Founders would use more eloquent language, but I think A Nod to the Gods has captured their spirit here

To those who will argue that I should use more “respectful” language I would pose one question. Do those miscreants seeking to deprive Americans of the right of self-defense have “respect” for our rights, or for the Constitution? Do they respect the truth when they deliberately lie about the number of times Americans use firearms to defend themselves? Do they respect honest debate when they seek to ram through legislation that would limit, or eliminate entirely my God-given natural rights? Do they show me any respect when they paint me, and other gun owners as nuts? Do they show us respect when they falsely seek to blame us for horrific tragedies like Newtown? The answer is no. So, why do I owe tyrants, seeking to rob my natural rights any damned respect?

Ed’s interjection:

Indeed, “fuck you” is the very sentiment which spawned this great nation. If it hadn’t been for our forefathers’ “fuck you” mentality, the Boston Tea Party never would have happened. Saying “fuck you” to authority is what America is all about. In fact, the U.S. citizenry is the most profoundly “fuck you”-oriented society on Earth… by tradition. Hell, “fuck you” was the thought that finally motivated Rosa Parks to move to the front of the bus. Our general “fuck you” attitude has helped sustain us as a people for generations, and if by chance you don’t happen to agree with everything I just wrote, then “fuck you” too!

When I say every difference between the Left and the Right is about Collectivism vs Individualism…………….

This is what I am talking about. Read as the COMMUNIST PARTY defines rights while cheering the Obama gun grab

In the wake of the Newtown massacre, polls show the great majority of Americans are now insisting that the ability to live free from the fear or threat of gun violence is a fundamental democratic right – one that far supercedes any so-called personal gun rights allegedly contained in the Second Amendment.

In fact, the right-wing extremists opposing all efforts to curb gun violence are the same forces that rallied behind Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, hoping to undermine every other democratic right as well as the living standards of workers and ordinary Americans. It is for that reason, as well as the need to protect public safety, that the same coalition of labor and its allies that worked so hard and effectively to re-elect President Barack Obama must now go all-out to back his common sense proposals for gun law reform.

As Obama has charged, the extremists recklessly “gin up fear” that the government is coming to take away hunting rifles and personal weapons owned for legitimate self-defense. Led by the hate-mongering leadership of the National Rifle Association, they use a totally fraudulent and only very recent interpretation of the Second Amendment which they falsely claim as necessary for protecting every other freedom contained in the Bill of Rights.

See there it is highlighted in RED. They favor collective rights and abhor individual rights, Natural Rights as Franklin called them. Let me put this as clearly as I can. Collectivists are evil. they seek to deny every American the rights they are Created with. They seek to place government, all-powerful, centralized government, in a position to give and take away rights as it sees fit. The Left seeks to replace the American ideal that our rights are from God, and that those rights CANNOT be restricted by or taken away by government. Understand the Left will lie cheat, and steal to achieve their nefarious ends. Their morality is not defined by religious faith, or by common respect for the rights of others. Their morality is defined only by achieving their ends. No matter the cost.

 

 

If you want to know what is “wrong” with America…..

Consider this post from Andrew Klavan

“If government’s purpose isn’t to improve the health and longevity of its citizens, I don’t know what its purpose is,” New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg after telling New Yorkers what they can and can’t have to drink.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men…” Thomas Jefferson, risking his life to make generations free from Napoleonic buffoons like New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

What a stark contrast. Collectivism vs Invidualism, The Nanny State vs Liberty. A fool, Bloomberg, who puts ALL faith in government vs a wise man, Jefferson, who puts faith in Natural Rights.

But, of course, it is for the children you know

A tremendous thought from Milton Wolf on why the price tag for Marxism is so very high

Teach ‘em early: Government withholds food from young children until they submit to the state’s demands… no, really

Do-gooders in the government are quick to pat themselves on the back for their generosity with other people’s money. Of course, each promise they make, each handout they give, comes with strings attached. They’ll pay the rent, but only if you live where they say. They’ll buy the groceries, but only if you eat what they allow. They’ll pay the medical bills, but only if you see the doctor they say and accept the limited treatments they provide.

In short, big-government types want one thing: your submission. And they’re wasting no time teaching the youngest Americans, that if they want theirhandouts, they too must submit to the state’s will.

How absolutely true. It is all a trade-off, you give up some liberty, some of your individualism, and they, the state, will give you something in return. The end result of such trading, of course, is that you cede your natural rights when you accept Marxism. And rights once surrendered are seldom recovered are they? Sooner or later, you realize that you are now nothing more than a slave, totally dependent upon the mercy of the state for all your needs.

Bravo!

Western Hero is quickly becoming one of my daily must read blogs. In fact, that reminds me, I really should put together a list of my MUST READS, but that is for another time. Tonight, I came across a post by Silver Fiddle, the driving force behind Western Hero, that is a MUST READ! The post is a response to a nutty Liberal who holds no grasp on reason, common sense, and who has not the first clue as to what Natural Rights are.

There is no such thing as “God given rights” because if we returned to the original state of nature, or that which was “God given” we would find ourselves bound only by our own personal power, our conscience, and or by forces superior to our own.

The rights that we enjoy today are man made rights; and as such are not “natural rights” nor are they permanently fixed.

This foolish remark drew a brilliant retort by Silver Fiddle, I will post just one sentence but please go read the entire thing!
American liberalism is a hopeless, self-contradictory tangle, an intellectual cul-de-sac.  In contrast, our Natural Rights, as enunciated by our founding fathers, are axiomatic:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” (Declaration of Independence)
Yes, we have a social contract called the US Constitution, but our rights do not emanate from that document.  They are natural rights that preexist and supersede man-made institutions.
As I already said go read it all, and my hat is off to a blogger who, unlike most, grasp the ideals that our Founders grasped!
 

A bit of misplaced, yet righteous outrage

From the fine folks at Weasel Zippers who, by aiming for the easy to pick low hanging fruit, miss the real issue with Obama’s ideology.

Oops He Did It Again: For Second Time, Obama Omits “Creator” When Speaking of “Inalienable Rights” Cited in Declaration of Independence…

Now, the real problem im the Obamassiah’s statement is not his “omission” of the word Creator. Here first read his statement.

Just seven days after he sparked controversy by omitting the word “Creator” when he closely paraphrased the passage from the Declaration of Independence that says all men “are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights,” President Barack Obama again omitted the Creator when speaking about the “inalienable rights” that “everybody is endowed with.” This time the president was speaking at a Sept. 22 fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, and his reference to “inalienable rights” was not as close a paraphrasing of the Declaration as it had been the week before.

“And what was sustaining us was that sense that, that North Star, that sense that, you know what, if we stay true to our values, if we believe that all people are created equal and everybody is endowed with certain inalienable rights and we’re going to make those words live, and we’re going to give everybody opportunity, everybody a ladder into the middle class, every child able to go as far as their dreams will take them–if we stay true to that, then we’re going to be able to maintain the energy and the focus, the fight, the gumption to get stuff done,” Obama said at the DCCC/DSCC event, according to the transcript posted by the White House.

To me, he says we are “Created” so the fishing for hidden meanings in the fact that he does not say “Creator” as well misses the larger issue. Focus on this quote.

 if we stay true to our values, if we believe that all people are created equal and everybody is endowed with certain inalienable rights and we’re going to make those words live, and we’re going to give everybody opportunity, everybody a ladder into the middle class,

Yep, see, his version of our national ideal is that the GOVERNMENT is going to GIVE opportunity, and somehow ensure EVERYONE has a place in the MIDDLE CLASS. Sorry Barry, but the Founders spoke of freedoms like the PURSUIT of happiness, not any guarantee of happiness, and certainly no government “ladders” into any certain class. Their ideal was more along the lines of keeping the government out-of-the-way. Once again, Obama’ vision, and that of his entire party, of America is out of touch with the men who founded America.
