How Free Will The Left Allow Us To Be?
Last week’s Chick-fil-A saga drove home the left’s thought process on economic liberty.
Since the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling, which I wrote about here, the left has been absolutely apoplectic that freedom of speech includes where you decide to put your money.
On Wednesday of last week, thousands of people, either outraged at the left’s isolation of the owner of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, or because of the duel attack on the First Amendment, thronged the restaurants in cities all over the nation. People showed support of the owner by using their dollars to send the message that the left will not silence the free speech and religious rights of a United States citizen.
When the left reacted, they said they were not mad because Mr. Cathy held his views and spoke freely, but because he gives money to organizations who are against same-sex marriage, or in their words, “hate organizations.” Once again showing they have no interest in allowing a person to do with their own money what they please without fighting individuality tooth and nail.
This mentality is evil, and I believe a very clear example of what the left’s wishes are for the future of the nation.
Nancy Pelosi said a short while ago that part of the agenda of the modern Democrat party is to overturn Citizens United by creating a Constitutional Amendment. The left has been feigning outrage that money, earned by and spent by corporations, should not and cannot be used in political campaigns or for influence within the political process. I say feigning outrage, because they do not disclose that the Citizens United case also affirmed their ability to use money taken from union members to affect the same type of influence.
The difference between what the right does with money and what the left does with money is the key.
The right uses their own earned money, the fruit of their own labor, done with their own hands, minds or backs, as they wish to support the causes they agree with.
The left uses tax dollars, taken from individuals, as well as union dues, taken from individuals, skimmed off the top of their pay, earned with the labor of the union member’s hands, minds or backs, to use for their own agenda, assuring the union members they are acting in their interest.
On Saturday, Mark Levin asked the audience at the AFP Defending the American Dream Summit, “Since when does the money you earned through your own labor belong to the government?”
The question is rhetorical, yet how many people forget that what we owe to the government is really up to us?
How much you pay in taxes is really how much you are willing to give to organizations within the government you disagree with. Just like a conservative who is forced to pay union dues in order to work in his chosen field, imposed by those who will do what they wish with it, you are forced to pay progressively more taxes, in order to exercise the right to live and work freely in this nation.
While the left argues for more and more taxation, the right argues for less taxation and less largess to the astonished outrage of the left. How could Americans be told by those “crazy right-wingers” that your money is your own, and the federal government is not your master and you the slave? After all, if the government takes most of what I earn, am I not an indentured servant? Am I 35% slave and 65% free? Adding federal, state and local taxes, am I 56% slave and 44% free? If I am 44% free to do with my money what I wish, am I free to buy chicken at a restaurant? Is Dan Cathy 44% free to give to organizations he agrees with? Are we as a nation 44% free to delouse the systems of government who would enslave us? The nearly 50% of people living in this nation who pay no income taxes rely on government, and are mentality slaves and don’t know it.
If we are not free to make our own choices with 44% of what we earned, why are the unproductive, and that includes people throughout the systems of government, who live off the taxes we pay, 100% free to choose what to do with the money we earned?
More to the point, why are we allowing it to happen?
The left is adamant. You will bend to their will, or it will be forced upon you, because you are no longer free to do what you wish with your own property, because you “didn’t get there on your own,” you needed help from them, first. A more oppressive form of rule cannot be found, save the dictates of King George.
Thoughtful Americans must continue to fight this evil through influence if we are to live in a peaceful society, because when there is institutionalized anti-justice, right and wrong and up and down are questioned, and being 44% free will seem as though we grabbed the brass ring.

Mark Levin Gives Unvarnished Truth
MARK LEVIN: We conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny. Period. We will not negotiate the terms of our economic and political servitude. Period. We will not abandon our child to a dark and bleak future. We will not accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we inherited from every single future generation in this country. We will not accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats, rather than self-sufficient human beings. There are those in this country who choose tyranny over liberty. They do not speak for us, 57 million of us who voted against this yesterday, and they do not get to dictate to us under our Constitution.
We are the alternative. We will resist. We're not going to surrender to this. We will not be passive, we will not be compliant in our demise. We're not good losers, you better believe we're sore losers! A good loser is a loser forever. Now I hear we're called 'purists.' Conservatives are called purists. The very people who keep nominating moderates, now call us purists the way the left calls us purists. Yeah, things like liberty, and property rights, individual sovereignty, and the Constitution, and capitalism. We're purists now. And we have to hear this crap from conservatives, or pseudo-conservatives, Republicans."It always amazes me the sheer number of women who defend abortion. Legal abortion has killed 52 million innocents since '73, that means 26 million roughly, were women.

I Don’t Deny Global Warming ExistsI don't deny that global warming exists. It does not exist. There is not a pink elephant in my kitchen. I'm not denying it. It is not there. If I denied that there was a pink elephant in my kitchen, it would have to be there, but I would be lying to myself and everyone and walk around it to cook. But it is not there, therefore, I am not denying that it is.
Snyder said Wednesday that he unconditionally supports expanding the state's Medicaid rolls by roughly 470,000 people. There are 1.9 million people receiving benefits now.
"We're all here to support expanding Medicaid," Snyder said at a news conference called by a large coalition of groups that support the expansion. "We're moving forward with care for people who need it."
The ever-illogical argument that insuring more people will actually cost less. "But health care providers and advocates for the uninsured argue that the state will actually save money -- as much as $1 billion in the first decade -- if fewer residents have to rely on expensive emergency room facilities to address non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries."
Susan Dumass is really quite pedestrian. "The only thing standing in between 450,000 low-income Michiganders and health insurance is Tea Party Republicans' deep-seated hatred of Obamacare."
This week, Michigan’s Rick Snyder became the sixth GOP governor to propose expanding his state’s health insurance program to cover more low-income residents, in line with the Democratic administration’s strong recommendation.
Now that he's made the decision, Snyder must sell the plan to the state legislature, where some members of his own party have repeatedly attempted to distance themselves from the faintest whiff of "Obamacare."
- I can find neither solace or comfort in government. I cannot find hope nor light among those pretending to take my best interest to heart. I cannot worship or revere another human being because there are none alive that can instill my faith. Give me the One God; the One Who had created the heavens and earth and had purposefully breathed life into me. The One Who dwells in the secret place and watches over me and always keeps me company when all others abandoned me. But for Him I would have no purpose in this life; thank you Dear God.
