What you are reading, when you click the above link is the two year old plan, brought to you by the Marxists at Hillary Clinton’s Center for American Progress, is a plan to confiscate the private 401k accounts of American Citizens and to compensate the robbed citizenry with Government debt. You know, because the government’s track record of making good on its debt has been so good recently. Normally, I would never have given something so insanely bad the benefit of taking up one nanosecond of my time. The problem now is two fold. One, these imbeciles have just won Presidential reelection, and two, this very plan received an actual hearing in two Senate subcommittees today.
What we are talking about here is not a tax on earned income, which is bad enough, but the government actually granting itself permission to reach into your bank account and take your money, based on nothing more than the fact that your elected representatives feel that they deserve your money more than you do.
We are decades past the tipping point where our government no longer feels constrained by anything the citizenry has to say about how we are governed. We are decades past the tipping point where government feels as though anything that is ours, actually belongs to them, and what we have at our disposal is merely what they have graciously allowed us to keep. On November 6, 2012, it became possible that we’ve passed another tipping point. That one was the point at which Americans in general may actually agree with the government’s position that they ought not be constrained by trite little things like what we the people actually feel about their growing scope and power. The proverbial tipping point at which the takers outnumber the makers in our society, when we have more people riding in the wagon than we have pulling it.
The third tipping point will be the point at which private citizens, in sufficient numbers feel as though they’ve had enough. When you reach a point in time, when the government, or their armed agents just start appearing in your home, or your bank and begin removing your personal belongings simply because they have run out of their own, then we have reached that point in time, that the very same conditions that caused this document to be written in the first place, are once again in existence. If those who are advocating for this, get their way, that will literally mean the end of all rights to individual property in our nation.
I recognize that we started down this path long ago, with Eminent Domain, but this move would put that evil practice on steroids. Two weeks ago, I wrote a tongue in cheek piece based on the, “We The People Secession Petitions.” Perhaps it’s time to pull my tongue back out of my cheek. Individual Property Rights are not just some silly experimental pipe dream that some old white cranks once believed would be a good idea, it is the entire point behind the founding of our nation. Those Secession movements are going to become more than a joke intending to force Barack Obama and his administration answer some uncomfortable inquiries. This is precisely the sort of thing which places torches and pitchforks in the hands of the masses, and gets them out in the fields searching for a bureaucrat to dress up in tar and feathers.
Exit question for the good people of Texas: When you make the move to become your own independent nation, separate once again from the United States of America, (as you are the only state allowed to do so,) will you be accepting open immigration from those of us who live in Ohio?
