Oh those Democrats and their mandatory, coercive mindset. To be fair I have heard some
Conservatives Republicans RINO types suggest mandatory national service as well over the years and, as Animal notes, they just do not get liberty
And then there’s this asshole. Excerpt:
A presidential candidate hopes to break out from the back of the pack and into America’s hearts by promising to force America’s high school graduates to spend a year working for the government, whether they want to or not.
John Delaney has made it into the Democratic Primary debates this week, despite polling between 0 and 1 percent recently and looking and sounding like a character invented by Will Ferrell. Over the weekend he attempted to grab some attention by rolling out a plan for mandatory national service:
Under his plan, he explains on his site, “all Americans would be required to serve their country for at least one year, with an option to serve for two. This requirement would apply to everyone upon turning 18, no exceptions.”
Yeah, NO! Or, as Animal says
“fuck off, slaver.”
Amen! Such a requirement would likely not stay 1 year, but would increase, especially if Democrats ever take the White House and gain any solid majorities in Congress
Daniel Greenfield knocks this out of the park!
Free college, free health care and free everything else. Even for illegal aliens.
Of course there’s a price to pay.
You get free health care by giving up the freedom to pick your own health care. You get free education, but the indoctrination is the price.
The difference between freedom and free things has been progressively erased so that many think that the American Revolution was fought because the British weren’t providing affordable health coverage to the colonies. If only they knew about the NHS, they would vote to go back.
All that the Crown really wanted was for the colonists to pay their “fair share”, a share that was determined thousands of miles away. All that the colonists wanted was the rights of Englishmen that they believed they were entitled to. After a great deal of bloodshed, the colonists won the right to be Americans instead—an odd series of consonants and vowels having to do with an Italian explorer but meaning free and limited government.
There is a big difference between a free country and a country of free things. You can have one or the other, but you can’t have both. A free country isn’t obsessed with free riders, only a country of free things obsesses with making everyone pay their fair share for the benefit of the people who want the free things. The rugged individualism of Colonial America has given way to stifling crowds, co-dependent on each other, lined shoulder to shoulder, clutching at each other’s wallets, crying, “Take from him and give to me.”
Go reda it all. I sure wish every American would
All the atrocities being committed against innocent people in Venezuela were preceded by…………….
On Saturday, Fox News published a lengthy piece by reporter Hollie McKay that offers a compelling case for gun rights that includes the insights of an exiled Venezuelan dissident forced to watch as his fellow citizens are crushed by the increasingly tyrannical and brutal socialist government .
In 2013, the “Control of Arms, Munitions and Disarmament Law,” a gun control bill passed a year earlier by Hugo Chavez’s socialist regime, systematically wiped out gun ownership rights in Venezuela. Five years later, the people have no recourse against an out of control government.
History repeats itself, again, and again, and again
Two Michigan colleges have been sued over prayers during commencement speeches. Campus Reform has this
A civil rights group filed a complaint against two Michigan colleges after commencement speakers prayed during their commencement speeches.
Muskegon Community College Trustee Ann Oakes included a religious invocation in her speech to the school’s graduates in May. Late last month, the Michigan Association of Civil Rights Activists (MACRA)filed a complaint against the school, disputing the constitutionality of her behavior, according to MLive.
You can go read the rest but let us look at the simple truth. What does that first amendment say about freedom of religion?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
Well, is Ann Oaks Congress? No. Did she or any other commencement speaker make a law respecting an establishment of religion? No. Is this “civil rights”
group trying to prohibit the free exercise of someone’s religion? And their free speech as well? Yes! Seems pretty simple doesn’t it? See what happens when we go by what the Constitution actually says rather than what some activist judge says?
Simply put, fools are easily duped and led into embracing Marxism, observe
Freedom of speech? Note how many missed that one
That bottom dweller, of course, is Alex Jones. And frankly, as much as I
dislike, detest, loathe Jones, I have to agree with Ted Cruz on this one
As I said Jones is beneath contempt to me, as is Info Warts but, yeah, freedom of speech trumps my dislike for him. Senator Cruz is right. Besides, allowing Info Warts to be heard exposes them for the vermin they are. I am not making a case that Facebook does not have a right to suspend Jones, they do. But, to me, let them be heard, and deservedly mocked for the garbage Jones spews.
