When Ron Paul was asked during Monday’s tea party presidential debate if an uninsured 30-year-old who became seriously ill should be allowed to die, several audience members yelled “yes!” and the audience cheered. Paul’s response: “That’s what freedom is all about, taking your own risk.”
I can’t for the life of me believe that the people of this country have sunk this low. 2000 years ago the Romans were cheering Christians being put to death in the Coliseum. Is that where we are now? Are we in the declining throes where all we have left is a want to deprive the less prosperous of our own society of basic necessities?
The Preamble of The Constitution of the United States, yes the very document the Teabaggers swear everything in life must adhere to no deviations states
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Look Welfare up in the dictionary and it defines the word as
welfare n. 1. health, happiness, or prosperity; well-being.
I am afraid the Teabaggers do not really care for the Constitution and just want to see blood and I am very afraid we may very well be doomed if this is what a Christian Nation led by the Teabaggers is all about.
