Where Did You Come Up With the Idea?

"Where did you come up with the idea that being elected President meant you could do whatever you want? We are not your subjects, you are not a god, and we won’t accept your efforts to turn us into slaves, no matter how much Michelle says you are going to require of us." -- Robert Villegas, Jr., Tea Party Journal.

Reflecting

Today President Obama told us he would be reflecting on the meaning of yesterday’s election defeat. I don’t know if anyone noticed the irony in that promise. One would have thought that a man of his education and intelligence, particularly a constitutional scholar, would already know the limits of his office before he decided to run for it.

Is he really just learning on the job? Did he really think the oceans would fall and the skies would open when he became President? Does it take an election defeat to teach him a lesson that he should have already known? Why didn't he know that it is his job to protect American citizens not confiscate their earnings? He should certainly have known that free people do not like being treated like draft animals.

Well, if we must educate our President on the job, we have certainly made a mistake in electing him. How could so many educated citizens, who certainly know their own limitations, elect to the highest office in the world a person who does not know his own limitations?

Read the rest here.

When I heard Obama's Aunt Zeituni, who lives in the US illegally, from her own righteous lips say she had no compunction about living off the American people because everything belongs to God, I understood the problem of the 3rd world. She does not understand the legal concept of private property. She does not understand that property is a concept that is essential if a person's work, involving real things including land and tools, to live his life is to be observed by all others as his right to his life which means the right to live his life. It does not belong to God nor to anyone who ascribes his authority to God. It belongs to the individual man.

In western civilization, this identification of property came into being in the Magna Carta in 1215 AD and was the beginning of property in law which later led to the industrial revolution and all the things she is now enjoying. The fact that we have what we have and third world countries do not is dependent upon the establishment in law of this concept more than any other. This is why Americans would be angered by Zeituni's sense of entitlement since her assumption of property requires that whoever created it had to give it up and since it was a government project she lived in, the people who gave it up, gave it up by force. Remember, if you don't pay your taxes, you may end up in jail. Her sense of entitlement is really saying that you and I have no right to our lives since she doesn't grant you the basis upon which you can erect an independent life.

Of course that would make people mad. And Obama suffers from the same sense of entitlement and the same ignorance. In a civilized country which means a country grounded in the property right and based on laws applying equally to all men, a person can obtain property, but he has to observe certain "honorable" procedures, the primary one being that he must honor the person who owns the property right now or he must create it from raw nature that is presently unowned. Theft and fraud are not acceptable. But in a society where property is not a basic concept honored in law, he must obtain property however he can. And, a man cannot live without property - even if it is a banana. Is this why Obama is so loose about taking our money? He's got the power so it is his right as in the divine right of a king, another 3rd world idea.

Add to this sitting in Reverend Wright's church where you listen to your right to everything the white man owns (Black Liberation Theology) and pretty soon, you cannot honor all men equally under the law. And, this is where Obama is and why his words and actions continuously offend those of us who do grant this basic right to own property to every man.

THE FLAME KEEPER said...

President Obama, expressing his unearned entitlement in the form of his trip to India where he is taking 3000 people, 40 some warships, renting the hotel in Muymbai where Muslims killed foreigners a couple years ago, all to the tune of $2 billion, can easily be crowned America's Ugliest American.

No one has stated a viable value for this trip. Is he not as crazy as Bavaria's King Ludwig?

Is he not creating a real hatred for Americans - the thing that those backed him wanted to erase? What kind of forceful altering of Indians' lives will this cause? I heard this morning that India has to clear the coast - and this mean closing all of the businesses and everything it takes to clear that area of people.

When Obama speaks now - since I've thought this through - I hear him as insane. With him head of state, we are living in an asylum here.
