Liberalism" is a disguise for Socialism

“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, six-time U.S. Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America. Congratulations, comrades.

Ithink: as a military combat veteran I still have the right to vote and I have the right Not to vote. Neither circumvents my rights to offer constructive critisism. Please, remember I have the right not to like any candidate the republicans or democrats offer. Heck, I voted twice for Ross Perot and he only ran once! I reserve that right, also. Rember what he said about NAFTA? "if it passes there will be a giant sucking sound of jobs leaving America." Who'd uh thunk it?

Surprisingly tenth grade American History class did cover quite a bit of the early documents. At least at PSHS.

Does West Virginia require students to pass a test on the Constitution? Don't think so! Pity!

… is a "sacred, God-given right"…. …"racial entitlement"!...

I would recommend you study the two and what our founding fathers stated Neil. If you do, you will see that during the Philadelphia Convention, Madison, and company argued against a Bill of Rights. They believed such rights did not need to be granted by government because they were inalienable rights granted by the creator. That’s why it took NY demanding a Bill of Rights before the FF promised one. The second of those inalienable rights was the right to keep and bear arms.

The right to vote on the other hand was never guaranteed. In fact, when Thomas Paine tried to vote in 1806, he was denied despite the fact he was a founding father. While subsequent Amendments have ensured that voting cannot be denied due to race, religion, ability to pay a tax or gender but nothing guarantees the right to vote. As was the case in the 18th Century the voting right is still left to individual states.

You're on the right track, Ithink.

Consider what Isiah said:"For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden."

I confess that I was guilty of thinking myself wise. Thanks for pointing it out.

Harry, Confucious says too much display of wiseness is dumbness. :)

I believe I'll wait until later to decide whether or not anyone lies tonight.

I like to refrain from commenting from an uninformed standpoint. The book of Proverbs says, "He who answers a matter before he hears it, it is folly and shame to him."

I hope it promoted the outdated process of thinking, mythy.

I vote, and l have the right to comment. People who don't vote should keep quiet.

A good plan for tonight is ro warch a good Michigan basketball game. We can all read the lies later.

Liberalism is the super highway that ends with socialism. We have a constitution to prevent that. Too bad we have a president that does not love, honor, and respect that.

He is a black man who is the most powerful man in the world. But he continues to promote victimization and division. A sad time for America

“What is the point of the federal government if the states can do as they wish?”

Read Calhoun’s words. He didn’t say that states could do as they wish. Again, I quote, “…in case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of power not delegated,…” Calhoun clearly intended to limit the states’ rights to what he called “interposition,” and what fellow South Carolinians Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms later called “states’ rights.”

Let’s get to the real question we need to settle: what Federal acts can be construed as “deliberate, palpable, and dangerous”?

Incidentally, I wasn’t advocating Calhoun’s viewpoint. I meant only to point out that his arguments predate and are far superior to Ayn Rand’s.

Calhoun wrote, “…the Constitution of the United States is, in fact, a compact, to which each State is a party, in the character already described; and that the several States, or parties, have a right to judge of its infractions; and in case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of power not delegated, they have the right, in the last resort, to use the language of the Virginia Resolutions, ‘to interpose for arresting the progress of the evil, and for maintaining, within their respective limits, the authorities, rights, and liberties appertaining to them.’ This right of interposition, thus solemnly asserted by the State of Virginia, be it called what it may—State-right, veto, nullification, or by any other name—I conceive to be the fundamental principle of our system…”

I find it odd that people invoke 1950’s writer Russian-born atheist Ayn Rand as the progenitor of minimal Federal government rather than 1830’s American-born Christian gentleman John C. Calhoun.

Put down “Atlas Shrugged” and read Calhoun’s 1831 “Fort Hill Address.” It may be taken as a Tea Party manifesto. You will see that Calhoun eloquently invokes reason and history to make his point, whereas Rand invokes emotion and fiction.

I’ll post an excerpt from the “Fort Hill Address” in my next post.

One can effect social change best by improving his or her own social behavior.

For R1KRA8,

"Atlas Shrugged" could very well be the prophetic novel of our age. Unfortunately, I doubt that the majority of posters on this web site have read the book.

When the producers are outnumbered by the takers tumultuous and cataclysmic events will occur. Maybe not this year or the near following years. But it can and I believe will occur.

If you have not read "Atlas Shrugged" or "Anthem" by Ayn Rand do so with out prejudice post haste!

Mythravere,

Hitler's socialism was called and known as the "National Socialists." True right-wing extremism leads to anarchy.

Obama has exhibited more fascist tendencies than democratic or far right wing that many has wrongly labeled as fascist.

Please study and learn this.
