Free Pigs!

We very rarely ask ourselves what is the true purpose for a society’s
existence because we just assume it exists without any effort on our
part. It is important to ask ourselves this question because knowing
its purpose will determine the proper way in which we should think of

Most of us just assume that society exists and that we, being members
of that society, just wake up, go to work, and function within it
without ever considering what it is we are functioning in. We are
like fish who just assume the water is there but we should begin ask
the question of what is the nature of the water we swim in.

Most of us assume that the purpose of society is to provide a place
for us to meet our social needs that satisfy our emotional needs for
companionship and belonging. That is not the true purpose of society
but only one of the beneficial byproducts of it.


Kill Shot!

It seems that the progressive movement strategy is that it will slowly advance our nation towards the ultimate goal of a communist state and every generation of progressives seems to march us one step closer to their utopia. They enact each step of their agenda one step at a time and after they completed a step they start pushing for the next step. This is the M.O. of the recently passed healthcare bill. This puts conservatives in the defensive mode of having to fight off the next wave of progressive change. In order to repeal the progressive agenda we must find a way to put them on the defensive.

In order to do this we must enact a constitutional amendment that removes all federal laws from the registry every election cycle of the House of Representatives. Any piece of legislation that was enacted during any term would be repealed automatically and have to be revoted on during the next term of the House of Representatives which would force them to re-campaign on those laws that they passed. This will also place a check on elected politicians who will manipulate the public in order to move the machinery of government to their will (instead of the people’s will) because anything they do will get an opportunity to be re-evaluated every election cycle. This destroys the permanency of any law because they have to be maintained indefinitely by public opinion which is unlikely to happen. This almost guarantees that the progressive agenda (or any agenda) will fail since public opinion is always dynamically changing from one generation to the next.


The Power to Create is not the Power to Enforce

The commerce clause is being used to by the federal government to regulate the economic aspect of our lives.  It claims it has the right to establish laws that regulate how businesses conduct themselves.   This is not correct because the commerce clause was always meant to break down trade barriers that states may attempt to impose onto each other.

Now lets assume, for the sake of argument, that the federal government’s interpretation is correct and look at one particular enumerated power which is the power to tax.

The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

This gives congress two powers which are the power to lay taxes and the power to collect taxes.   The power to lay taxes is the power to establish laws that demand citizens pay taxes while the power to collect taxes is the power to establish laws that actually do collect taxes.   Without the power to collect taxes the federal government wouldn’t have the ability to collect them and under the tenth amendment that power would fall to the states.
