First Principles: We Cannot Be Happy Without Being Free; We Cannot Be Free Without Being Secure In Our Property

“Let these truths be indelibly impressed on our minds — that we cannot be happy, without being FREE — that we cannot be free, without being secure in our property— that we cannot be secure in our property, if, without our consent, others may, as by right, take it away — that taxes imposed on us by parliament, do thus take it away.” – John Dickinson

Just say no to communists masquerading as socialists masquerading as Democrats like Bernie Sanders.  He may be among the most honest of pick pockets but, he remains a pick pocket.  Until he can rationally explain how a man who didn’t have a job until his 40s has 3 houses and a ‘camp’, it seems a bit odd that anyone would think of him as anything less than a grand example of a hypocrite.   Moreover, where exactly did the money to buy three homes come from?  This inquiring mind would like to know where this across the board lack of basic math skills started for those supporting the Bern.  Then we have the related issues of his mandatory minimum wage of $15.00 an hour joined at the hip with his proclamations on healthcare.  Again, folks, basic math.  $15.00 an hour would put these folks over the limit for ‘free’ (nothing is free) healthcare and would conversely under his tax and health policies equate to these folks having a real income in the neighborhood of less than $7.00 an hour.  Basic math… oh and thinking.. both go a long way in approaching politicians who promise what sounds too good to be true.  There’s a reason for it.  It simply isn’t true.
