"Ding Dong the Drunk is dead!"
Slavery = Segregation = Minority = Socialism?
Attribute to The Libertarian Enterprise
You thought Slavery was abolished by the 13th Amendment to the constitution? Nope. Here is the actual text of the Amendment that merely abolished the slave trade;
That's ANY crime for which anyone is duly convicted; violation, misdemeanor or felony, speeding, drunk driving, violation of the basic rule, operating a business without a license, possession, drunk in public, or homicide. For my peace of mind the sentence underlined above should be removed, as it gave the former slave owner the ability to put blacks in jail for; lookin' wrong at a white woman, not having gainful employment, being without identification, or any of a hundred other pretend offenses; and then renting them from the County in the form of prison work gangs, which in the end was cheaper for the former slave owner anyway.
Today most people don't see the slavery around them, don't understand how it still exists today as it always has, just in a different form. The enslavement hasn't changed despite the efforts during and after the Civil War, where before the War Between the States, Cold Iron bound a human to an owner; after that Late Unpleasantness there were 'Black Codes' that could get a man jailed for those pretend offenses mentioned earlier. This would eventually lead to Segregation, Slavery with another name and separation as had been done to the Native Tribes, for though the actual buying and selling of people had been stopped, the use of them as unpaid labor had not. The only gain made by Negroes would be the ability to form family units and maintain them 'till death do you part' rather than 'till death or distance do you part'. Throughout the 98 years following the American Civil War, Black Americans would fight tooth and nail for what they realized they had not been given' equality.
To some extent Native Tribes fought for the same equality, however they were lulled or bullied into submission upon their reservations by; money, alcohol, brutality and 'privileges' that were their sovereign right to begin with, a state of affairs that has not been corrected to this day.
In the mid 50's, black people again stood against the tide of injustice and inequality, only they were no longer alone, the majority of America stood beside them, proclaiming that ALL people are created equal. Again there was bloodshed, the blood of Americans on American city streets; protesters, civil rights activists, clergy, children, mothers, war heroes, and many others would die for Freedom and Liberty of ALL people. Once again their blood was shed in vain, once again the politicians mitigated and marginalized the issue until President Lyndon Johnson gave the movement status with his voice and took away that equality with his pen. In 1964, after ten years of revolution the American Political Machine again ground the gains of Freedom loving people into hamburger, the creation of the Welfare State changed Segregation into a Minority designation. Again the system would have a new name, however the only gain that had been made was that All people could vote and own their own land. (For many poor white sharecroppers this would be their first taste of freedom as well, for previously they were not allowed to vote either.)
Today there are more and more people falling under the designation of Minority; the handicapped or disabled (including Disabled Veterans) would now share the designation. The Minorities would be enslaved by a different set of chains, by the marginalizing of the Minority with programs to house, medicate and feed them while preventing them from advancing; now our chains are made from money instead of cold iron or separation. A new theory arose in the 1960's that Economics could be used as a weapon to subjugate and keep people in place ' some lucky few would escape, but the majority of those so controlled would submit. Once proven as an effective weapon through testing on the American people, the weapon would be turned against the Soviet Empire in an effort to win the Cold War of escalation between the 'Super Powers'. Proven effective against Communism the weapon of Economics is now turned against the American People again; to prove its ability to do to Capitalism what it did to Communism, this time to destroy the last remaining scraps of Freedom and Liberty still available to American Humans.
The Minority does not exist! The race known as Homo-Sapiens has no sub-species. There are no scientific facts to prove that one part of humanity is different in basic structure than any other part, to a scientific certainty of 99.9%. All Humanity bleeds red iron-based blood, this blood comes in four differing types all equal to each other; O, A, B, and AB. All humanity can eat omnivorously, though there are people who chose to be Herbivores, it is not strictly necessary for survival from a scientific standpoint. All Humanity is capable of; compassion, generosity, kindness, and gratitude, emotions that many other Mammals and Cetaceans have shown a capacity for. What is unique to the Human Mammal is that we prey upon each other; little by little and piece by piece, most of the time in response to conditioning or training that one group is better than another, this has no basis in scientific fact. It belies a moral judgment upon our fellow humans.
The regime that was "elected" to the offices of the U.S. Federal Government are openly trying to socialize every aspect of Our country, from healthcare to the automotive industry our "elected" officials are working against We The People to make us All Slaves to a system which will only result in our becoming passive servants or liquidated terrorists.
The majority of the laws we are already required to adhere to, were created without a vote, it's the same as the 'Taxation without Representation' that we fought against England in the creation of this country. This country was founded upon; Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press, Freedom to Keep and Bear Arms, Freedom of the pursuit of Happiness, and a hundred other freedoms that fall under Life, Liberty and Property. Obama is a puppet, pure and simple, feeling that the collective dumbness of the state is smarter than We The People. That ruling the country is not in the hands of We The People but in the National State and that all individuals and associations exist only to help create the power, the prestige, and the well-being of the State.
The evil concept of Statism discounts Individualism and praises the Nation as an organic body headed by the Supreme Leader and nurtured by unquestioning unity, force, and discipline.
Our Leader's handlers insult our intelligence with these pogroms, initiatives and un-approved laws and taxes. Individuals can, and have proven to be more effective when initiating change than any government ever could be. The best assistance I have received in the last 16 years as a disabled minority has been from caring individuals and groups of caring individuals, in privately funded charities. Individualism, we have learned from history, gets crushed under the boot-heel of the State at the insistence of its party leader' in this case Obama, because individualism seeds dissent and revoltlike a horse that remains unbroken and unwilling to be saddled, makes other horses skittish when it moves close, encouraging in them the basest Freedom Loving Animal in their nature.
Unfortunately, with a Democrat ruled Congress, impeachment is out of the question, and the barring of the voters collected voice for a recall election is the job of the Electoral College which was a mistake to create in the first place. Which leaves us with only two courses left;
The current Regency in power would shiver in dread fear at the thought of being subject to their own laws, and well they should, for them to be subject to those laws and the laws of Humanity would be more than mere flesh could bear. The giant reset button needs to pressed on this program we mistakenly call the United States of America, to do any less is to reject our Rights and Duties as People of the Republic.
