Didn’t we all throw a Tea Party and a revolution or something way back in 1776 to get rid of big central government fanatics like Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders?
What did we say to the king then? If memory serves, we said stirring things like, “No taxation without representation!” and, “Give me liberty or give me death!” and:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
And so on…
Just a quick side thought: How do you like massive, ridiculous taxation — many times higher than when we kicked out that other king — with representation?
Reactionary neanderthals like Sanders and Clinton would bring us back to 1775 and they’d look you and me right square in the eye and call it “progress.” Sanders is calling it a “revolution!” Right. A “revolution” that throws you back two and a half centuries.
Who are the real idiots? Clinton and Sanders? Or those who would vote for such witless buffoons? Or both?
