Hillary thinks the government owns you

shackles.jpgThe topic of individual ownership — meaning who owns individuals — has been addressed previously on this website in the Economics of Christianity (Part 1) “The Right of Ownership.” The general idea of the article is that individuals own themselves and have certain rights as a result. It’s the philosophy of America’s founding fathers. But we now live in a country where candidates for president can claim ownership of the people and there is little or no outcry. In fact, many Americans embrace the modern version of slavery because it is couched in language that sufficiently hides its true nature.

In an interview this week, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton affirmed her belief that the government owns citizens and everything they have (read for yourself). She supported the idea of garnishing a persons wages in order to force them to participate in her government-controlled socialized health-care scam. When asked about people who would prefer to purchase their own health insurance she said, “I think you can automatically enroll people, and you will then say, ‘You’ve got to be part of this.'”

Stealing a person’s money to pay for “services” they are forced to accept — this is what passes for “freedom” in 2008? Sadly, 5 of the 6 remaining candidates for president have similar notions. Only one stands steadfast for liberty.

    Bingo. Well written and well said. It’s good to see another intellectual Christian into self-ownership, economics and doctrine. Thought I was the only one, there for a while. 😉
