We have neglected this journal for several months, and our excuse is simple. We've had nothing much to say that wasn't expressed by others with greater felicity. Now, however, we dare to speak up.
Our country has serious troubles beyond debt and unemployment. The premise of our republic is not the "right" to a job, not a "right" to healthcare, nor education, nor housing, nor other materialist "rights", rather it is
...[we] are endowed by their [our] 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.
It is now obvious that the current Administration intends to supplant this sacred declaration with that of the Menu of Materialist Entitlements. Furthermore, the Administration, in order to realize this goal, is attacking the social institutions and conventions that would impede the citizens' reduction to serfs beholden to an all-powerful federal government for direction in every significant aspect of their lives.
This Administration, with its Czars and Mandates, must be turned out in November. Otherwise, Lord help us, while the federal powers still permit an appeal to Heaven.
