Government will either be a sovereign or a servant. Those who want government to be the sovereign oppose freedom for the individual. Those who want government to be the servant support freedom for the individual. When our founders formed our government and drafted the United States Constitution, they did so for one purpose and that was to protect freedom. The founders fully understood that the government they were forming was the single biggest threat to the freedom they had just won.
The founders understood that the evil that is government is a necessity. This is why they wrote the Constitution the way they did. Patrick Henry explained that the Constitution was an instrument for the people to restrain the government so that the government does not come to dominate the lives and the interests of the citizen. These are the ideas of a true Individualist. A Collectivist favors a controlling government where the government restrain the people and controls the lives and the interests of the people.
Our one major political party has openly and often explained their desire for government to control all of the activities and thoughts of the people. The stated goal of the Communists was to take control of at least one of the major political parties in the Untied States. The Democrat Party is now under the firm control of Communists and has truly become the Marxist/Progressive Party or the Communist Party of the Untied States. This is documented and is no longer even arguable. They support the communist principles as enumerated by Marx. They believe government is instituted among men and is the source of all rights granted to the people. The Democrat Party opposes the principles upon which the United States was founded; individualism, rule of law, limited government, divided government, and sovereignty of the people. They are an enemy to freedom and liberty as defined by our founders and outlined in the Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.
What has been made more and more clear is that the Republican Establishment supports much of what the Marxist/Progressive Party supports. The Republican Establishment favors many of the precepts of Collectivism while opposing the basic principles upon which our nation was founded. Members of the Republican Establishment like Ryan, McConnell, McCain, Flake, Cornyn, and others claim to be proponents of the principles of freedom or limited government. They even campaign on that precept, but they have continually supported the advancement of Collectivism and support the road that is “The Road To Tyranny.”
Once again, the Republican Establishment is betraying all Freedom Loving Americans, including President Trump. The Republican Establishment will be joining the Marxist/Progressives in bringing about bigger and bigger government as they vote this week on a funding bill that has been defined as essential. Since the bill has now been defined as essential, the enemies of freedom, including the Republican Establishment, will justify their votes for voting to create a bigger and bigger government that more and more dominates the lives and the thoughts of Americans.
“House and Senate leadership has rolled over and played dead on border security. When it comes to a border wall, they say it is not our problem. When it comes to funding sanctuary cities, they say it is not our problem. What they are essentially saying is we are going to pass bills with more Democrats than Republicans,” an aide stated. “This is a sign to (the Trump) administration that leadership doesn’t care what the White House wants. Even though GOP members ran on these issues. Conservatives mean it. The administration means it.”
Funding sanctuary cities is not the only thing that will rile up Freedom Loving Americans in the omnibus bill, which lawmakers must agree on by the hard March 23 deadline.
Early drafts of the spending bill, which are being kept under “lock and key,” a GOP aide said, include Planned Parenthood funding, Obamacare subsidies, gun control legislation, a large tax on internet sales, and a host of other policies completely against Republican campaign promises.
The Republican Establishment has adopted the primary principle of the Marxist/Progressive Party; and that is the art of deceit, untruthfulness, lying. Make no mistake, the Republican Establishment is an enemy to the freedom and liberty our founders tried to defend when they purposefully limited the role of a government so that freedom could exist. The Republican Establishment also believes that government is the solution and not the problem. Freedom and liberty is under attack on two fronts; the desire for a communist takeover by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and big government for power and control by the Republican Establishment. The end result is the same. The end result is exactly what the founders wanted to prevent and that is a government that would dominate the lives and the interests of the people.
