Our alternatives to rampant Socialism are few
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume, among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation". Are we destined to hark back to this 1776 premise to find refuge or cause to meet the devolution of our Constitution, of our un-alienable rights for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in this onslaught of Socialism? Is this very thought seditious or patriotic? This United States of America is a house divided. Reconciliation seems impossible. What then? Are we to devolve to States more separate than United? Do the States have a right to nullify Federal dictates to effect such separation as some contend they do? History tells us we've dealt with this before, on two occasions, one resolved by compromise, the other by civil war! Because of demographics as I've alluded to before a democratic solution appears daunting. I say again, what then? Somehow, some way we have to convince our leaders the good of the country has got to come before politics, freedom before equality, that the preservation of our nation as constituted is the only assurance of our survival both economically, and socially! Tell me this President of ours is not striving toward a self fulfilling prophecy of his Lincolnesque fantasies in portraying himself as the great emancipator of our welfare riddled society!
