We are in the middle of a revolution. The one side is calling for a transformation of the United States. The transformation they seek is to have the United States become a Marxist state. In a Marxist state the people are told how they can live their lives and what they must think. When the Marxist party declares that all must follow their dictates to bring about social justice as they define social justice, any who do not conform will be demonized, shunned, excluded, and yes eliminated. The only law that exists is the law as defined by the Marxist party. The concept of Ex Post Facto is totally discarded. If the Marxist party declares something illegal or immoral today, you are held guilty if you committed the act yesterday, last year, last decade, and now we are learning even last century.
At the heart of this revolution is the idea of what are Natural Rights and from where do those rights come. When the United States was founded, we adopted the unique idea that Natural Rights come from God and not from government. This idea was not unique because of the truth of the idea, but because no country had ever founded their society on this truth. All nations had accepted that government controlled all rights. Autocrats have demanded that people adhere to the concept they are assuming the role of God and Marxists believe God does not exist and therefore the role of God falls to the Marxist party.
Although Natural Rights are commonly referred to as Live, Liberty, and Property or Pursuit of Happiness, our Declaration of Independence correctly recognized that Natural Rights extend beyond these stated when Thomas Jefferson stated that amongst these Natural Rights are.........
Under whose control do Natural Rights fall is at the core of the revolution in which we are now engaged. This has been a struggle in the United States for years. The most basic Natural Right is that of life. Who is allowed to have life and who is denied life. Certainly, God is in ultimate control, but the Marxist movement has for years tried to assume some control. They were able to take that control in the United States when they circumvented the United States Constitution and achieved their goal through unconstitutional means. It was through the courts, who have no legislative or lawmaking authority, that the Marxist movement achieved a legal means to commit murder and end the lives of unborn children in the name of choice, because it is deemed that the child is an inconvenience. This same movement is making noises that the concept of choice should extend beyond the time of birth as well as being applied as people age and are deemed to be a liability as they age.
The Marxist movement is also attacking the concept of liberties being under the control of government. Today our liberty of speech is being curtailed and completely restricted when it is determined by the Marxist party to be politically incorrect and what they term as hate speech. Our right to assemble is now based on whether or not the purpose of the assembly is to further the Marxist movement or if it is to oppose the Marxist movement. Assembly to oppose is now being outlawed. Our liberty to practice our religion is now prohibited and when it is again allowed, the Biblical command to make a joyful noise to the lord is threatened.
The Natural Right of property or the pursuit of happiness is being restricted. Many of the Marxists are defining how we are to use the property, when we can do business from the property, and even demanding we pay rent to the state for the property we supposedly own. Our personal incomes are now considered property of the state and it is the state that tells us how much of our income we can keep. Even the right for us to pursue our dreams is being limited if the state determines the achievement of our dreams would hurt the fragile ego of another.
We are in the midst of a revolution. It is critical that we who are Freedom Loving Americans do not accept that the Marxist party can dictate to us how we are to live our lives and how we are to think. When we accept that government in deed has the right to control, limit, or abolish our Natural Rights that do come from our Creator, than we have accepted total conformity to the Marxist dictates and have willingly become a servant to the state.
