Democrats Pushing Enslavement

Anyone who looks at the masthead of my blog can see one of my favorite quotes is: "Better starve free than be a fat slave." - Aesop

With their promises of universal health care, "jobs, jobs, jobs and jobs", saving the climate (as if humans can control everything), ad infinitum, ad nauseum, the Democrats are working at a frenzied pace to create fat slaves. We already have the fattest poor people in history. Largely, these same poor people are the most dependent on the government.

Which is fine as long as they vote Democrat as often as possible. Indeed, Democrats have their own federally funded organization, ACORN, to help ensure the poor slaves vote for them.

Using an onslaught of legislation, the Democrats aim to create a government in which greater numbers of citizens are forced into dependency on the government. People who work hard to earn enough money to remain independent will be punished by being forced to support the others.

An unfortunate leap Americans often make when thinking of slavery is to look only at American slavery. During ancient Roman and Greek times, slaves were often treated quite well and lived in relative luxury, but they were still slaves. The great irony of Aesop's quote is that he, himself, was a slave.

Many will want to pick apart my claims and analyze the details to "prove" the Democrats aren't working towards enslavement. But, analysis is often a circular process that proves nothing and neither begins nor ends. Consider this:
The core of Krishnamurti's teaching is contained in the statement he made in 1929 when he said: "Truth is a pathless land." Man cannot come to it through any organization, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, not through any philosophic knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship, through the understanding of the contents of his own mind, through observation and not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection.
Knowing that laws are easier to pass than repeal, the Democrats hope to establish laws that greatly increase the power of government over the individual. Unfortunately, too many find Independence and self-reliance too frightening and gladly enter into enslavement, especially when they think they're getting something for nothing.

My son tells me I need to give some examples. I feel if you've been observing the news, you don't need examples. But here are some:We will see a society with a permanent underclass, which we pretty much already have, brainwashed into believing the government is their only hope, in particular a Democrat run government. Democrats will make sure there is plenty of free or cheap housing, food stamps, etc. Democrats will also make sure that this underclass continues to be an underclass falsely believing the Democrats are their only hope.

We will see a middle class and upper class that carries the burdens of society. (This we already have, also. It will just become more pronounced.) As I said above, they will pay a heavy penalty in taxes for being independent and self-reliant. Government will control them through threat of imprisonment as they have the most to lose. Like Joe the Plumber, if you raise a stink you will be the subject of investigations and more.

And we will have an ever more powerful ruling class. A ruling class that thinks they're royalty rather than public servants. A ruling class that thinks they're royalty rather than public servants. A ruling class that thinks they're royalty rather than public servants. I could go on and on here, but if you don't get the point by now, you're too blind to see.

Comments:
Its as if you took all the talking points we used at Super Secret Liberal Takeover Headquarters and pasted "Democrats" in place of "Republicans." Every example you gave could be countermanded by a similar example from the other side during the last 8 years - from the Bush administration quashing FDA reports because of ideology to the Justice department firing US Attorneys for political reasons to federal funding of faith-based organizations to calling their political opponents' words traitorous.

We argue about the differences between American "socialism" and the American "free market," when all the politicians are fighting for is what the next 4 years of American feudalism will look like. Debt for health care, debt for student loans, debt for house payments, debt for car notes, credit card debt, debt, debt, debt. And you think we're just now signing up to live by someone else's leave? Let us not forget all the conservative and liberal thinkers who have warned us (for far different reasons) that these days would come and that they would be trouble.

We get over this the same way we always have in the past (because, luckily, we always come out ahead almost in spite of ourselves): when the debate turns away from the ridiculous "small government vs. big government" and moves into the far more important "effective government vs. worthless government;" away from "my culture vs. your culture" to "healthy culture vs. poisonous culture;" and from "Republicans vs. Democrats" to "walking the walk vs. talking the talk."
 
...the next 4 years of American feudalism will look like.

Yep. I've made the feudalism comparison before myself. I won't argue with you last paragraph because I essentially agree with it. I'm attacking the Democrats now because they're in power and are running up the debt like crazy. I like smaller government because smaller means less power to do harm.

Yes, we have been warned by many. George McGovern, considered a far left liberal at the time I voted for him, warned us not long ago.

Thanks for your comment. Your one guy I can always depend on for intelligent insight whether I agree with you or not.
 
Universal access to healthcare, a single payer health insurance system to cover it, and financing the whole thing with federal taxes may increase the cost and create paperwork, but it solves an embarrassing problem:

As long as access to healthcare is a function of the individual patient's ability to pay for it, then the argument that human life has a dollar value attached to it remains valid. I would be happy to support the idea that healthcare is just another product to be paid for by the individual if politicians would be willing to look straight into the camera and state that poor people don't deserve what they cannot pay for, including healthcare.
