Freedom Advocates - In Words and In Deed (July 19, 2009)

When asked to be king, George Washington responded: “Abhorrent!” He rejected power. Power-lust is for little men.

For over a century now, kings in the three branches of government puff up with power. They crave to boss citizens around, infringing the individual's right to be the boss of himself and his business. Taxpayers are under a bipartisan dictatorship.

To “do good by force” is a power-luster’s subterfuge. People motivated by the desire to do good yet advocate coercion are frauds – they are motivated by power-lust and envy. Loathe to admit even to themselves that they survive by looting, the enemies of producers invent causes to "do good". Rights-infringement is unacceptable regardless of the motivation.

The Democratic and Republican Parties claim to champion the people’s welfare. Touting platforms that are in the public interest, they have a common way of implementing them: by force. The advocacy or sanction of coercion is the mark of evil.

President Ronald Reagan was a staunch supporter of Antitrust and Insider Trading laws. Those who evade that these are tyrannical laws are on the side of freedom destroyers.

Many Reagan admirers are moral descendants of Galileo's persecutors. Reaganites evade that an embryo has no brain activity, the criterion used to declare that a person is no longer alive. They blank out that it takes cruelty to impose a tortured life on a mother and her baby, and that giving one's baby up for adoption is 24/7 torture for life.

In socialism: looters and moochers are kings, and babysitting adults by force is the law. But theocracy is the worst scourge of mankind. A theocrat would burn a Galileo at the stake; whereas, a socialist would let him live, hoping that he would sacrifice for society.

Uncommon citizens: let us elect Jeffersonians in words and in deed. They do not hold contradictions.
