I hate to say it, but the people of Georgia seem to more informed than the American people, or at least more partial to the concept of self responsibility. Faith without works is dead, however we Americans seem to be all to willing to rely on faith in our democratically elected officials to solve our problems, and less upon self responsibility. I have to wonder if the American people are so entrenched in socialism that we will not be able to recover, at least not until the plows of socialism have tilled us back into the dust from which we came. On Monday, November 9th, 2003 I posted the following statement:
If we could wake the American People from their deep slumber, they would realize that our democratically elected officials are unofficial, and all we have to do is throw them out of the office they are not authorized to occupy.
David’s article continues to say. “The resignation culminates an intense two weeks resulting from wide spread election fraud (sounds familiar). Fed up with ongoing corruption, high taxation and oppression of the people, the parliamentary offices were stormed and occupied by the people, yesterday.”
Not that I am suggesting anything (I am) but…
I spent some time this evening at Dave Toney’s blog, and found it to be a treasure trove of information. I added Dave to my blogroll, as well as a website with “The Law” by Fredric Bastiat, and I found the following excerpt particularly well connected to reality:
“By the application of our faculties to these natural resources we convert them into products, and use them. This process is necessary in order that life may run its appointed course.”
It was that principle of natural law that allowed this country to become the most prosperous in the world during the first one hundred years of the United States. Given his free agency, a man will produce in excess of his needs for survival, and it is that excess that made this nation prosperous. It is the basis of free enterprise capitalism, which is the opposite of capitalism. The capitalist play their game by usurping the values created from free enterprise, and although the terminology is similar, one word changes the whole meaning. The capitalist depend on socialism to usurp their bogus livelihood, and they advocate democracy because they know that history repeats itself in regular cycles, and history shows that democracies always fail to gimme socialism. Their plans are actually quite brilliant, you have to admit. But I have faith that we will be able to wake the American people up their awful situation before it’s too late, but it will take some work.
I have added Dave Toney to my blogroll because, like David Goodyear, I got the impression that he is a man of virtuous character.
