it's about something mentioned yesterday, almost entirely as an afterthought, that is still sitting with me...
Can you guess what it is?
it's when the words 'why have state lines at all'
This morning -- this entire week perhaps -- is about returning to this new reality in America, the smudging of the lines, the boundaries put in place.... for our benefit! I might add.
Michigan, just this morning, is trying to remedy a similar situation as we speak. The Unions in the state have overstepped their bounds; a course correction, granting an array of new policy surrounding the Right to Work -- including the right NOT to pay Union dues, if one is so inclined -- has been bundled and bonded by the legislature and is presently on its way to the Governor's office for signature.
Yesterday, the president attempted to influence the decision by saying the following:
"These so-called 'right-to-work' laws, they don't have anything to do
with economics. They have everything to do with politics," Obama said.
"What they're really talking about is they're giving you the right to
work for less money."
But anyway -- is the president predictable, or what?
One minute he speaks so highly of the people's liberty, the next he treats it with contempt. For this president and radicalized-community-organizer-in-chief, everything is viewed through the political prism. It's always about the propaganda, the polls (and how to play them), the people's perceptions (and how to twist them), the politics of dividing this sacred body, in actuality, these United States and how to use that for control.
Control of the people, the wealth, the resources, the property -- all in all, the people's liberty.
He's a learned man, President Obama -- astute to the tactics of Saul Alinsky, armed with an intellect raised by Marxists, and having his entire personal career built upon Union support, community organizing for the disenfranchised, and heavily influenced by mentors steeped in radical thought
-- Frank Marshall Davis, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn
...just to name a few.
The thing is, the boundaries of government are no longer smudged -- they're entirely erased.
Let's just rattle off a short list of where the Federal Government does not belong:
- health care
- a person's 'right to work'
- welfare & entitlement
- social security
leaving it to seven... for the seven deadly sins.
These things belong under the authority of the state -- as in the individual states, not the socialist state.
Since it was brought up only yesterday -- take, for example, gay marriage...or any marriage, for that matter. The government simply does not belong. It should not be of any political use whatsoever...you wanna talk about something having absolutely nothing to do with politics, Mr. President? Let's talk about this. You flipped sides on the issue for the politics of it, more than once! As in you were for it, before you were against it, before you were for it again...
...and come to think of it, your tax hike plan -- calling "the rich" beginning at 200k/year as individuals, the hitched @ 250k/year -- why isn't the starting point $400,000 if you're married? Is that a punishment?
But having outlined where the fed doesn't belong, allow me be even more clear -- this view is not intended to take anything away from the root of good government created in these United States of America. The boundaries, the form, the context was rooted in responsible self-government, and created through the prism of multiplying freedom and liberty for all; the family being not only the extension of this principle, but the very center of it.
The core unit of any society starts locally, with the family -- working outward through the churches, schools, the entire community, much like the ripple created from a stone. A good society starts with something truly small. But boy, is it strong, solid, stalwart -- becoming a certain structure in place to find our heart, security, peace, and understanding in a crazy world.
Which reminds me, one of the fundamental tactics used in communism is to replace the family with the cause, to replace God with a new religion.
It isn't any great stretch to see that we are in the midst of the lines being smudged; the federal government is erasing cultural boundaries, becoming intricately involved in areas it doesn't belong. Under any normal situation, this environment begs for anarchists against authority to rise up against it, much like the Occupier's; but such is not the case; it's puzzling, really. All is quiet on the home front. It's kinda creeping me out...
The Tenth Wish is upon us -- give states back the power! (fist pump) Let every state be free to decide -- pot or no pot; gay marriage or traditional; right to work or right to union corruption; right to abortion or right to life (and yes, if I were in charge of anything, I would force the elimination of the phrase "pro-choice" -- call it what it is.)
Every state is different; the political electoral map (by specific county, too) proves that in a heartbeat...Let the Left leaning fall into the Utopian oceans they cling to and let the rest of us revel in our right for our right to live in real liberty, true freedom and peace...lots and lots of peace and quiet.
The federal government was designed to give it limited power for a reason. The reasons, many. Unfortunately, for so many Americans, the reasons seem to have been erased along with the boundaries put in place over two hundred years ago.
It's time to for lines to be drawn with a Sharpie pen.
How do I know this will work?
Children thrive with boundaries.
