Sitting under the Fig tree of others

The following is attributed to Patrick Henry. Go to the poor man, ask him what he does; he will inform you, that he enjoys the fruits of his labours, under his own fig tree, with his wife and children around him, in peace and security. Go to every other member of society, you will find the same tranquil ease and content, … These words came in June 1788, that was then, this is now.

The socialist democrats are the democratic party, even the party chair said that socialist democrats are the new face of the democrat party. The runner-up in the democrat primaries for president on the democrat side is a self-proclaimed socialist. A socialist democrat sent an establishment democrat “packing” in the congressional primaries in New York. The democrats still holding office are now “free” to show their true “colors”, the colors of socialism. When, not if, socialism comes to America it will come by way of the ballot box. The socialists have spent years “grooming” future voters to accept socialism, not just to accept socialism but to actually long for socialism.

The socialists have long promoted the entitlement mentality. Listen to the words chosen by politicians and their mouthpieces all of a sudden welfare, welfare of any type, became an entitlement. My question is, Since when did welfare become an “entitlement”?

Years of “grooming” landed us where we are now. Much of and many in society believe they are entitled to “free stuff”. They believe they are entitled to free college tuition, they are entitled to free housing, they are entitled to a paycheck even though they have no job. They feel that they are entitled to what they did/will not earn. They are perfectly content to sit under the fig tree belonging to another. After all that is what they have been told time and time again, they are entitled.

As for me I sit under my own fig tree with my wife enjoying the fruits of our labours. My fig tree would be larger and provide more shade if only the socialists would get from under my tree.

You have no right to that which this house has earned. Be an American go out and start your own fig tree and sit in the shade and enjoy what you provide for yourself. If you provide nothing then that is what you deserve, Nothing.

Sacred cows of the left

It would appear that the left has more concern for their “sacred cows” than for this Republic. The left’s sacred cows are based on opinion rather than fact.

I may as well dispense with this now. The left will claim that the right has a sacred cow as well, the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment is based on fact not opinion, that fact is spelled out in the Constitution.

There is one more thing to dispense with. Opinions change, Facts do not. It is a fact that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, the rising and setting of the sun is based on fact not opinion.

Speaking of opinions. I for one am just about tired of opinion polls, sick and tired of hearing what percentage of Americans support or believe in whatever. Opinions change based on new information or when hidden facts come to light. Pollsters are paid, their polls are skewered to get the answer desired. If you ask 100 gun haters about guns you will get a typical gun hater response. Polls are also wrong, every poll taken with the exception of one had HRC handily winning the last presidential election.

When I hear talking-heads on the right spouting the results of the latest poll I just shake my head. When I hear a leftist talking-head spouting the results of the latest poll, well that is to be expected. Both of them, left and right, only spout the poll numbers that further promotes what they are trying to “sell”.

It is sad indeed that this Republic appears to no longer lives under “the Rule of Law” and lives under the “Rule of Opinion”.

The left is in a tizzy over the newest Supreme Court nominee, some of their present “sacred cows” may be dispensed with and some of their future “sacred cows” may never come to light. So let us examine some of those “sacred cows”, and while I am at that I will point out the dangers of being governed(ruled)by opinion.

Abortion. Abortion(the legalized murder of children in the womb)comes to this Republic courtesy of the opinion of the majority of 9 Supreme Court Justices. The left is scared that the newest nominee mat take this “sacred cow” to slaughter rather than continuing to slaughter(legalized murder)children in the womb.

Congress passed no law legalizing the murder of children in the womb and certainly no president signed it into law. It is very doubtful that legalized murder would have ever became law if not for opinion.

I find it a little more than ironic that those who support abortion and perform abortions were themselves in fact born. They art the product of live birth, but in true leftist fashion they seek to deny or provide an avenue for the denial of others what they themselves have, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

The left uses the equal protections clause when it suits their needs or agenda. They claim that it is the woman’s body and therefore her choice, but the unborn has no choice. The unborn is in essence deprived of life and liberty without due process of Law.

Same-sex marriage. Same-sex marriage comes to us courtesy of the opinion of the majority of the Supreme Court Justices.

Congress passed no law legalizing same-sex marriage and again no president signed it into law. There is no address of marriage in the entire Constitution, yet same-sex marriage is now a constitutional right. The left used the equal protections clause.

The only historical document that addresses marriage is the Holy Bible, described by God as being between a man and a woman.

Those that profess to support same-sex marriages are the product of marriage as described by God.

I could go on with examples of opinion trumping law but you get the picture.

As said above the left is in a tizzy over the Supreme Court nominee over the way he may vote on issues that effect their “sacred cows”. The fact is no one knows exactly how he will render his opinion. The left can not take that risk, they want a Justice who will hold the same opinion as the leftists and render his opinions as a leftist. They fear a Constitutionalist.
