Steal From The Poor - Give To The Rich

One aspect of the tremendous beauty of the United States Constitution is its incredibly simple language. In a similar manner, the first ten Amendments (that are an insoluble part of the Constitution, implicitly part of its ratification), known as the Bill of Rights, are really easy to read and understand. That is, unless you happen to be an activist jurist who doesn't believe in the Constitution and instead wishes to unilaterally and tyrannically impose Socialism on the people of this great nation. (It takes the equivalent of a third-grade reading level to grasp it completely.)

Consider the Fifth Amendment and its simple way of explaining personal property rights: nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation. Now, I know it's not just me, because the phrase "public use" is pretty darn explicit and not open to any interpretation. Either some item of property is being used by the public, or it is not. Nowhere does this Constitution give one or more governmental tyrant the power or authority to take anything away from party 'A' in order to give it to party 'B'. No matter what! Under highly regulated processes, a jury may do that, but never the government.

So what's with the Supreme Court of the United States? Well, they've been cruising toward socialist oligarchy for some time now. Long ago, they forgot that all "rights" come from God. They don't seem to understand that only people have rights, individually, never collectively. And they have no power whatsoever to either legislate or mandate legislation. Read it for yourself - it's all there in Articles One through Three; and it's really simple.

So yesterday's ruling on the legalized theft of property with collusion by the government came as little surprise to me. With several hard-core socialist operatives on the bench whose ultimate objective it is to overthrow the people of the United States, it makes perfect sense. Notwithstanding the efforts of James Madison and the Federalists who encouraged the establishment of a Constitution that would empower the government to be responsible for "common good" of society, they lost. In the end, it was decided that the government should never be trusted with such power. Had the Federalists had their way, this Nation would have collapsed almost immediately!

Back to the subject in the 21st century. It's a rare day that I agree strongly with Associate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor; but in this case, I do. "Any property may now be taken for the benefit of another private party, but the fallout from this decision will not be random," she wrote. "The beneficiaries are likely to be those citizens with disproportionate influence and power in the political process, including large corporations and development firms."

In case you have not had the pleasure of appreciating my views in the past: I don't like big government, I don't like big business, and I don't like big education. But I do like you. What we have here is the orchestrated authorization of power politics. We have lost our rights to life and to liberty and now it's property.

Lastly, what surprised me about it? I would not have expected Justice O'Connor to be so adamant about it, nor would I expect Justices Kennedy and Stevens to buy into the idea of granting so much power to local governments. None of the others surprised me; not because of division of governmental power, but because of Socialist - Individualist ideologies. Maybe the biggest surprise was who wrote each of the opinions. That caught me totally off-guard.

  • I Had read somewhere ( I dont know the truth in it, as International politics is not always my forte,) that not even red china or russia in all its socialism took property from its constituents. (Mugabe is famous for this.) That being said Charlie, now that liberty, freedom, and property have been removed, what is left? What is next to take besides our right to worship (which i consider gone anyway) but I mean churches, and our lives? What as an organized and civilized bunch of people are we to do about this, about the country overall. I practices civil disobedience when practical, ( gotta pick your battles, right time and place for all), But should we all sit here with our thumbs up our a$$es and do nothing? I say revolution, but blood needn't be spilled for such. However it probably will. As I look at your wisdom and intellect charlie, I ask the hard questions, what do we and can we do now?

  • kc,
    You do raise interesting questions. I believe that one great truth will soon emerge in this country that has hidden dormant for a long time. The reality in the United States is that we have leftists who are primarily represented by Communists, Socialists, and Anarchists. We have liberals, mostly the Republican Party who favor governmental support of Corporate policies and cronyism. What is really invisible is the right wing. Most organized religious power structures are actually liberal/libertarians. They exist to feed their own power by encouraging the members and clergy to "roll their own" morality.

    The Right Wing really does exist, and it isn't very pretty. But it is incredibly silent - and it chooses to remain that way. As an organized front, they do not vote, they do not fill out census cards, they do not pay taxes and they do not write to their Congressmen. What they do is maintain a very rigid social contract, high degree of absolute morality (according to their beliefs). If someone displeases them sufficiently, that person just "disappears". As such, a revolution launched by these extremists (who are equally to the right as Dean, Schumer, Kerry, and Michael Moore are to the left) will result in lots of prominent people just ceasing to exist. There would be a certain anarchy that would result. But since these groups are highly organized and highly disciplined, it is likely that they could actually take control of the U.S. in the same fashion that the Dirty Commie Rats (DCRs) did following the overthrow of Czar Nicholas by the Bolshevicks in Russia. (Note: the DCRs did not win the revolution, they didn't even fight it!)

    Now if that seems good, consider that the social structure is most commonly aligned with National Socialism. Private ownership is ubiquitous, but with government approval - and guess who controls the fascist government?

    America is in for a rude awakening. Incidently, I am not a right wing extremist - I just play one on the internet. Politically, I am a moderate in much the same vein as Michael Savage. For sure, more rightist than Sean Hannity or Glenn Beck. But nowhere near as far right as Gerhard Lauck, David Duke or Louis Farrakhan.

    There are really two Chinas occupying the same territory: Red China that is adamantly Commie and Totalitarian in the extreme and the more pragmatic Corporate Culture of Shanghai. Keep in ming that Jiang made his fame and success as mayor of Shanghai. The entire success of the Chinese economy was made possible by that culture. Additionally, the hard-line old farts that want to return to the glory days of Mao and nationalize everything may do so at any moment, but it would for sure result in a civil war- not that that ever bothered the Reds.

    Mugabe is a whole different story. His line of taking property is precisely in line with the latest SCOTUS ruling's effects, if not their purpose. He took land from one group (Christians) to give it to others (Muslim Warlords) who in turn, pledged their allegiance to Robert personally - hence, not the army of Zibabwe, but the personal army of Robert Mugabe to cememt his grip on power. He, himself, has no religion, but he finds it easier to have Muslims do his evil than Christians. I think it has something to do with being driven by hate.
