Time after time we hear a Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) say the policies they favor are American Values. Yes, they will even say that their policies are what the founders had envisioned for our nation and they were in lockstep with them. My purpose for writing this and exposing the utter ridiculousness of these absurd and inane statements is not to persuade those who adhere to the doctrine of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) big government welfare state, and how anti American are their beliefs, but to talk to Freedom Loving Americans who will commit with me to begin to set brushfires of freedom in the minds of Americans.
If in fact, any adherent to the big government welfare state desired by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) should read this and begin to question the socialist doctrine and how anti American it is, that is just a plus. As we move along, periodically I will reveal how the socialist state in fact does exactly the opposite of what the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) state they want to do and that it is to help the “oppressed.” The welfare state always has and always will bring poverty and hardship to not only the poor of a nation, but to all within a nation except those in the upper echelons of the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) party in power. The socialist state desired by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) has been proven to be cruel financially and socially, bringing hardship, poverty, and crime, It is imposed on societies for selfish reasons by cruel and power hungry people.
For Freedom Loving Americans who wish to set brushfires of freedom, understand that when we are told big government and the welfare state are American, this is the exact opposite of what our founders desired. They understood that a big government welfare state would only lead to the loss of individual freedoms and bring about a tyrannical government dictating to the citizen how they were to live their lives and how they were to think. The founders explicitly limited the power of the federal government by enumerating the powers of the federal government within the United States Constitution. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have nevertheless used the words "general welfare" to expand the government way beyond the powers it was given so that today the federal government controls every aspect of American life that James Madison warned was not their intent.
This is what James Madison, the father of the Constitution, told us could happen.
“If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, everything, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress... Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America.”
“The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.” Thomas Jefferson
“If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify.” Alexander Hamilton
The federal government has reached that point specifically stated by Alexander Hamilton. We are now at that time where we must redress the injury done to the Constitution in the most expedient and prudent way possible.
Every single act mentioned by James Madison as a violation of the Untied States Constitution and directly against the intent of the founders is at the core of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) program. Where they have already violated the Constitution and the intent, they are proposing even more egregious violations. Every Freedom Loving American should question every Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) statement that claims they value the Constitution and adhere to American values. They should not only question, but they should set brushfires of freedom in the minds of Americans who would be open to understanding why and how our founders valued freedom and liberty and established the Constitution to protect freedom and liberty from the very programs promoted by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats).
