Printed in the Greenville Herald Banner Monday, June 1st 2009
Referring to comments on the expansion of state funded health care in Texas, Tuesday May 26th, Herald Banner.
Speaking of unconscionable Senator Deuell…
When a portion of wealth is transferred from the person who owns it without his consent and without compensation, whether by force or by fraud - to anyone who does not own it, property is violated, an act of plunder is committed.

This action is exactly what the law is supposed to suppress always and everywhere.
Legal plunder? Does the law take from some persons what belongs to them and give it to others to whom it does not belong? Does the law benefit one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime?

Then abolish this law without delay for if it’s not abolished immediately it will spread, multiply and develop into a system. The person who profits from this law will complain bitterly, defending his “acquired rights”. Do not listen to these arguments - the present day delusion is an attempt to enrich everyone at the expense of everyone else: to make plunder universal under the pretense of organizing it. The picture of eating your seed corn or devouring your own limbs to fill your stomach comes to mind. It does not work.

I have news for you folks, we live in a socialist country. We are slaves to the state. We produce and they plunder us. This is not the Constitutional Republic our founding fathers gave their lives and fortunes for.

We have been frogs in a kettle - not noticing the temperature rise for over 100 years!
We think we are free because we get to keep half of our wages! While the half we keep is eaten away with inflation and usury.

We think we are free because we get to vote. With the pretense of a two party system (two wings on the same bird of prey!) and an easily hacked electronic voting system that ensures an outcome the powerful group behind the curtain desires and a controlled media that gives us the news they want us to have. Yes, we are free, as free as a caged bird or hamster.

Our founding fathers fought for our God given liberties and for lack of interest and being too trusting of our elected employees we have found ourselves worse off than they ever were. This is a disgrace and it will destroy us.

What can we do about it?
1. Admit our own guilt.
2. Inform ourselves.
3. Get involved.
4. Reach out to others.

Duty is ours, the results are God’s. John Quincy Adams
