Take a good look at SOCIAL JUSTICE or SOCIALISM and what it has brought to Greece the cradle of western civilization. The rallying cry of the unions. The practice of usurping private property rights. The irrational demand that theft of others property is moral. The deficit spending by panicked politicians with welfare state mentality. The complicity of the American media to intentionally distort the immigration law recently passed in Arizona and many other contentious issues is beyond comprehension. It is as if the media in our country has a goal to yell fire in a crowded theater. During the great depression Americans rejected socialism for freedom and we will again.
As a veteran of the United States military I would suggest the quasi government unions should remember one thing. You work for the American people. Federal workers now on average make more than the private sector. It is our taxes that pay the generous salaries and benefits you enjoy. Remember one thing when your leaders ask you to strike. We are Americans first in this country. Work it out and if you have to take a pay cut grow up and deal with it. The rest of the country is.
I cannot imagine that most rank and file members of these unions believe this is the America they want. Ask your own leaders why they make two hundred thousand dollars a year without cleaning a bed pan or turning a wrench.
If union sponsored violence raises its ugly head in this country I hope the leaders that promote such action face the full blunt force of the law. We as Americans respect the rule of law in this country without it we deteriorate as a society which leaves no individual safe. I am sure there are certain elements in this country that through some perverted view of their own self importance believe property rights are nothing but a hurdle obstructing their destiny. True leadership in America is the preservation of the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness which includes the right to property.
Tocqueville 1848; ” Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom; socialism restricts it. Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number. Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference; while democracy seeks equality in liberty; socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”
So take a good look America we are a great country but there is a cancer rooted in irrationality trying to bring the United States down. Never give up the idea of individual liberty. It is that philosophy that makes us American.
