"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
~~~~~ The late Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931 to 2005 ~~~~~
How true is this statement???
Patrick, what you sent is totally TRUE.
We have now become a "pure Democracy" in the way the country is actually operating. We have operated this way increasingly for decades.
The Supreme Court just proved it by refusing to deal with the OBama "eligibility" issue because they don't want to interfere with what "the people voted". In other words, the body most responsible for the protection of the Constitution, decided to duck it. That is the final and most telling evidence that the elected and appointed officials of the United Stated have violated the trust and have forgone their sworn duty to defend the Constitution. This means that as of now we are in a "Constitutional Crisis".
That last event of no one stepping up to defend the Presidential Eligibility clause is an example of pure democracy in action, and if you just look you see that "majority rules" everywhere. The people have learned how to vote themselves money. (I have nothing against OBama, by the way. It is actually refreshing to listen to someone speak who has a decent education.)
In a Constitutional Republic, which we once were before our financial masters decided to wipe it out with this "democracy" crap you operate by "principle. Democracy is a weak approach. Why else would we have to take extraordinary steps to "make the world safe for democracy?" The answer is because "Democracy" cannot stand on its own two feet long. Every civilization that adopted it collapsed.
We were never meant to be a "democracy". We were founded as a Constitutional Republic" and we were one until the men who raised their hands and swore to defend the Constitution decided it was more profitable or expedient to avoid that issue. We lost all "checks and balances" when we abandoned our Constitution. (see "Summit Call" attached.)
So, it is predictable that, if we cannot reclaim our constitutional roots, the next step is total dictatorship, which is pretty close to what we actually have to endure now, "financial dictatorship", or in other terms "indentured servitude".
