Read all of this sobering piece by the always-outstanding Walter E. Williams.
…Once legalized theft begins, it pays for everyone to participate. Those who don’t will be losers.
That’s the nation’s dilemma. The most important job for people who want to spare our nation from economic collapse is not that of persuading politicians to do the right thing but to convince our fellow Americans to respect the limits of our Constitution.
In his speech to Virginia’s ratifying convention, James Madison said, “Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it; no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it.”
With profound regret, I have stopped believing that the USA as currently defined can be saved.
In candor, there are scores of millions of Americans of all shapes, sizes, and flavors who won’t survive what is coming.
My efforts lean increasingly towards what becomes of those who do survive.
Remember — the fight for freedom in America does not end until the last person who truly knows freedom dies or is corrupted.
