conservative utopia

Liberalism is a mental disorder


I hope all of you had as wonderful a thanksgiving as we did in our family. I haven`t posted in several days as I have other writing responsibilities that I must attend to first at times.  I was on my evening walk and I was thinking, as I often do when I walk, about Sovereignty and how it applies at many different levels to the aspect of freedom and a free society. One of my goals in writing about politics has always been to explain political ideals and conservative principles in a more plain fashion. As I watch the talking heads on the news I sometimes say to myself; “no wonder most people hate politics”.

I was chatting with my son and oldest daughter the other day that are now old enough to vote, about how important that right was. They both said “dad we hate politics”. This is the point that I think most conservatives fail to see, that we need to speak in plain straight language to reach the masses. Most people when polled realize that they line up more closely with a conservative than a progressive; they just don`t know it until someone speaks English to them instead of Washington BS.

As I was saying earlier, I want to talk about Sovereignty on an individual level. We all hear politicians speak about national Sovereignty and how important that is; but what about the subject of individual Sovereignty? And what does that mean? The founders believed that one of the aspects of European tyranny was the fact that all rights were granted by a King, Queen, or some other Government official. The Declaration of Independence clearly states that rights are God given at birth to all men, and are inalienable; that is to say that no human, be they pauper or king, can take them away. In other words, you as an individual are Sovereign and own yourself and have rights granted at birth by Almighty God; whatever version of God you may believe in.

The progressive and the Marxists do not believe in individual Sovereignty, they may claim they do when it comes to social issues; but they do not believe in Sovereignty on an economic level. I was in a conversation on a left wing blog the other day and the guy said to me “you have a duty to pay taxes for roads and other social issues”. If that were all the progressives wanted then I would happily agree to some fixed percentage and move on. The problem is that progressives can never name a figure and I have even heard national radio personalities like Hannity or Mark Levin ask this question. I have heard Hannity ask liberals “how much is enough? Name a figure for me”.

Progressives call keeping what you earn “greedy”, I am one who thinks taking something from someone you didn`t earn is an absolute form of greed. To sit back and buy into the “class warfare” garbage that the progressives in the democrat and republican parties spew out creates hatred toward fellow citizens. These people then vote for politicians who will use the police power of the federal government to steal their fellow citizen’s wealth. The rich are the minority in this country and so they don`t have enough votes to fight the majority of Americans who live in the covetousness of a “class warfare” mentality. This in return usurps the very individual rights or Sovereignty of another citizen.

We all have a finite amount of time on this earth when we are born; some have more than others, none of us knows the amount of time we have. Every day people get up and trade time for money, they go to work each day either at a job or a business that they own. Some individuals have paid the cost of years in Trade schools or college and have thousands invested in student loans to pay back. Others may have invented some new product or service that filled a need for millions of people and therefore they made millions in return. No matter how one earns a living, they trade the precious commodity of finite time that they have on this earth to do so. I say all this to point out the importance of private property and wealth, if you trade time for money, that money is your private property and damn well should be. There are those in every society who have physical and mental illness and cannot fend for themselves and we as a society should provide a safety net for them. I have never been opposed to social welfare programs; however, the left wants to sign everybody and their brother up and cares nothing about their citizenship status to boot.

But what should we do about those in society who choose to be mentally ill or sick? What about those who make very poor decisions and shoot a bird to all who try holding them accountable for their actions?  Just as there are many who choose to work hard, finish school, pay their own way thru college; there are those who choose to quit school, do drugs, drink alcohol in excess, and become pregnant at a young age. Finally, there are those who just simply have an entitlement mentality and don`t give a damn about personal responsibility. These leeches on the ass of society are loved by the democrats because that’s who they vote for. The democrats know this and don`t care, all they want is power.

We the people of this nation who love freedom and liberty; should not revert this magnificent society called America back to the horrible European socialism we left behind over 200 years ago.  We should remain Sovereign as a nation and we should respect our fellow citizens individual Sovereignty.
