Where’s My Free Gun?

Fantasize with me for a moment. Let’s pretend, like liberals, that anything you decided was a right was indeed, a right. Since some have decided that killing one’s own child is a right, it has become a de facto right. It has also been decided, apparently, that freedom from religion is also a right, meaning that religion has been banned from the public square contrary to what our Constitution specifically says. Others emerging include the “rights” to education, healthcare, citizenship, welfare, food, housing, clothes, and the list goes on and on.

What follows in this fantasy is that these “rights” must come from the government. The opening words of our Declaration of Independence read; “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, …” Although it says nothing about rights that come from government, let us continue our fantasy.

Apparently “rights” are now government entitlements. With government (us) providing so much to so many by threatening the lives, liberty and pursuit of happiness of those who work every day, obviously rights, largess, security, fairness, equality, and so much more all rain across the nation from Washington, D.C. Some have said that we are all entitled, and have a right to clean water. If this is true than why do we have water bills? If we fantasize that government bestows all these unwritten rights upon so many people in the form of handouts what about the rights that were actually mentioned by America’s Founders?

The 1st Amendment guarantees the rights to religion, speech, press, and assembly. So, where are my free Bible, Torah, Koran, Vedic Hymns, Tripitaka, Dianetics book, and other religious texts? Where’s my personal, government-provided radio station? Where’s the newspaper that Uncle Sam must set up and run for me? And how do I apply for my free flight to assemble at the Tea Party Rally in D.C on April 15th?

And the 2nd Amendment! Where’s my free gun? Or better yet, guns? I want a Bushmaster! And don’t all real men own a 1911? Where’s mine? How can I pursue real happiness unless I have an equal number of guns as the other guys? The government has Howitzers, I want a Howitzer!

I have a right to a lawyer, as promised in the 6th Amendment, yes? Since this is stipulated but a right to a doctor is not, how can we be subjected to socialized medicine but not socialized legal representation?

The 13th Amendment abolishes slavery and states; “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States…” So how is it that the average American will work until the middle of April in servitude to the government to pay taxes? In 1900, Tax Freedom Day was January 22.

Ok, let’s come out of our little fantasy world and return to reality. We are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. Government can only take those away when we allow it. Be it liberty, property, happiness, self reliance, opportunity, or whatever, government can not give anyone anything it has not already taken away. Karl Marx knew this, Vladimir Lenin knew this, Saul Alinsky knew this, and Harry Greed, Osama Barak, and Nasty Pelosi know it today. And they are using it to destroy us. Wake up Americans. Wake up and smell the communism that gurgles up from our political toilet and spreads throughout our house of liberty.
