Republic Versus Democracy - Ron Paul

Once a nation becomes a democracy, the whole purpose of government changes... the government embarks on the impossible task of achieving economic equality and micromanaging the economy and protecting citizens from themselves in all their activities. Read more

A Response To State Of The Union Address
Written by TJ Lawrence   
Wednesday, 27 January 2010 23:04
Can anyone explain where they found one single item in the President's State of the Union Address to be within the confines of the United States Constitution?
 
More government growth, more government spending, more global conspiring, more war, more redistribution of wealth, the renaming of unpopular bills, calls for further nationalization of the school system, calls for more internal development to create more government jobs, calls for more border control and more security theatre inside the airports; the list could go on and on.  People have to give freedom in order to have freedom!
 
The United States does not have an Immigration problem Mr President; it has a welfare problem. Redistribution of wealth is nothing more than legal plunder; the practice steals from the productive class and gives to the unproductive class. Welfare in all its various forms attract unproductive and sometimes dangerous people no matter which arbitrary geopolitical demarcation line they were born past. Why is this so hard to understand? Why has the federal government strayed so far from its founding? Why do the States continue to support the federal government and its tyranny? Why do the people not see past the ballot box and mischievous politicians? Why do the people continue to obey big government like serfs to a king? When will the people stand up as one and declare enough is enough and then slough off the despotism of bad government?
 
 
 
"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

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, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security." --- The Declaration of Independence: July 4, 1776
