Which side of history?

January 5, 2014
The Review

Dear Editor:

Who are these history revisionists that bark out as if in a carnival that this country was unjustly founded, that the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties, and the idiom of "the end justifies the means?" - their ceaseless and senseless mantra of the mythical advantage "white privilege," attributed to all white people to explain away the social and economic failure of minority group politics.

It is a proven fact that more people have been taken out of poverty by capitalism then any aid created by a religion or government, and there are far too many successful individuals of minorities in America, but that doesn't fit the narrative of social justice.

The reality is that freedom is the solution to the human condition. This country has for some 238 years been the most successful country the world has ever seen and that is proof enough. No government program created this country, free people created this country. This fact supports the true explanation of American exceptionalism. The vast majority of the people of this world have never known the kind of liberty and freedom that's taken for granted every day in this country. For the first time in human history, a government and country was founded on the belief that leaders serve the population. This country was the first in history, the exception to the rule is what American exceptionalism is.

Along this same line, God is a necessary legal concept. Our founding documents set forth that our rights as humans predate the government of men, those rights cannot be abridged (not easily). They come from God and are inalienable. Now when someone makes the "What Would Jesus Do" argument adding that Jesus wants the state to take over "charity," well, that's just blasphemy.

Abraham Lincoln explained that the word liberty has two totally different meanings to different people. One would see liberty as his exercise of his free will to do with himself and his property as he pleases. It would be another man's understanding to have the liberty to do as he will with the other man and that man's property. It is the same word but totally different meaning and totally incompatible. This all ties in with Obamacare that is Democrat democracy that is wealth redistribution that is Communism that is Un-American. In summary if you evoke God to justify the Democrats usurping of our liberty because the end justifies the means, you are on the wrong side of history.
