The Religion of Pure Equality, Don’t Fall for this False GOD

Opinion

Equality
Equality for Thee, but NOT for Me

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)-

“Socialism confuses the distinction between government, and private, enterprise.

As a result, every time we object to a thing being done by government, socialists insist that we object to its being done at all!

  • We disapprove of state education. Socialists claim that we’re opposed to all education.
  • We object to a state religion. Socialists claim that we’re opposed to all religion.
  • We object to a state-enforced equality. They respond that we must be opposed to equality.

It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting citizens to eat, because we do not want the state to raise grain.

I do not dispute their right to manufacture ‘social issues,’ advertise them, advocate for them, and to try them upon themselves,

… but at their own expense and personal risk.

However, I do dispute their ‘right’ to impose these coseismic plans upon the rest of us by law, by force, and to compel us to pay for them with our taxes.” ~ Bastiat, France in 1840

As we see, what is being advocated by the current crop of socialist/Marxists/progressives in Washington DC, and assorted state capitols is nothing new!

These totalitarians, claim they want to:

  1. “Feed us,” (but only what they think we should eat, and only in amounts they deem “good for us”),
  2. “Take care of our medical needs” (but only what they decide what is “necessary” and “in the best interests of the ‘group’ to which we’ve been involuntarily assigned”)
  3. “Sustain us,” (by making poverty and squalor universal, as they have in Venezuela)
  4. “Protect us from violent criminals,” (but only as a “group;” no individual act of self-defense, nor for that matter any display of individual initiative, is ever tolerated)
  5. Protect us from our own foolishness” (and, the most foolish decision any citizen can ever make is to speak out against, or even have reservations about, their arbitrary wielding of power which is, and should be, unlimited)

Curiously, not one of these professing socialists wants any of the preceding to every apply to themselves, personally.

  • They have no interest in any “dietary restrictions” upon themselves. They’ll never starve, nor will they ever lack for heat, nor air-conditioning.
  • They have in place a “special” medical system, available only to them, where they get to make all their own individual health decisions, absent any restriction, and regardless of cost.
  • They have their own cushy “retirement program,” unavailable to the rest of us, which is designed to ensure they never want for anything so long as they live.

They live in isolated, splendorous luxury, behind massive gates, walls, electronic barriers, heavily-armed bodyguards at their beck and call (often provided at taxpayer expense), and curiously their bodyguards are all armed with the same “dangerous” guns they claim the rest of us shouldn’t have.

And, while they cynically profess to be oh-so-concerned about the “poor,” isn’t it interesting that the “poor,” diseased, homeless, illegal immigrants, and “misunderstood” violent criminals are never invited into their homes, neighborhoods, nor their children’s exclusive, private schools.

Thus, while they lavishly insulate themselves against every form of unpleasantness, they simultaneously, and so self-righteously, insist the rest of us have it all forced upon us, while we remain severely restricted from any kind of individual initiative, particularly with regard to personal safety.

Since the 1840s, the preceding has never changed.

“Questions are treated equally by Marxists. Ask a question, get shot! Very uniform. No discrimination. Pure equality.” ~ Frieling

Socialism simply refers to the government, as an entity, having preeminence in fields associated with the welfare and health of the nation state. Thus, socialism does not define itself as an end to free enterprise, nor does it exist in defiance of human values such as the pursuit of happiness. I think what people object to, is a totalitarian regime, which they erroneously attribute to socialism. Totalitarian government is part and parcel of the emergent globalist hegemony, of which liberal leftist/communist ideology was the seed. People who repeat the socialism trope simply have been outmanoevered by media and their inability… Read more »

I believe that the main reason for the rise of Socialism in this country is in a large part due to the corruption and abuse of what we loosely refer to as “Capitalism”, which is a misnomer for what corporations, big business, Wall Street and the Government practices in America. It is not based upon supply and demand, it is based upon greed. Making a profit is the drive, not bad in and of itself, but when done to the exclusion of conscience and compassion, becomes an unnecessary evil. Even if you make $1.00 profit in a year (all debts,… Read more »

, I believe that is a pretty good analysis. It kind of parallels the love of money is the root of all evil, but in more of a conversational manner. When we start realizing that more family is superior to more money, then things will change. And children will be a blessing again.

It’s not abuse of capitalism, it is the switch to CRONY capitalism. The people have allowed government to become intertwined with businesses. The is no reason that businesses should be allowed to lobby congress for ANYTHING, nor should a business be allowed to donate money to a candidates election campaign. Crony capitalism is all about greed of the corporation and the greed of the politician.

Every god is false!
Except if he died, raised from the dead, came back in the flesh alive, preached to over 500 persons upon his return, did countless miracles, and saves you from your sins when you repent. Oh yeah he must give you eternal life of love and bliss if you believe in him as your god. That’s impossible! Unless he is really god.

I think Jesus met this impossible requirement.

I repent of my sins and ask Jesus to be my Lord and God!

The author says: “We object to a state religion. Socialists claim that we’re opposed to all religion.” Actually Christians are supposed to be OPPOSED TO ALL RELIGION! A true Christian is not a follower of religion, but a believer in the one true GOD and his laws and doctrines! All religions and most Christian denominations are followers of religion. Christians who claim to love and follow GOD but insist on ignoring GOD’s laws and doctrine as defined in scripture are denying him. Many of man’s laws are a direct violation of GOD’s laws and doctrine.

Classic example of the left’s ignorance, their star child Cortez of NY bragged about being instrumental in Amazon pulling the plug on building in Long Island. The good people of Long Island just lost out on an estimated 2500 jobs, average salary $150k. She claimed the $3 Billion in tax breaks offered to Amazon, that money could be used better elsewhere! Get that, she actually believed Amazon was gonna be given $3 Billion. I suspect the voters who put her in office would like a redo. Her own words “I cannot pay my rent”, now kills a much needed economic… Read more »

As Einstein noted, the difference between genius and stupidity… is simply that genius does have a few limitations, while stupidity has none.

Ocrazio-Cortez is living, absolute, inarguable proof of the second part of Einstein’s statement.

sal you are just plain wrong. Just because you can’t see God does not mean he doesn’t exist. Read the part of the Bible where Jesus died on the cross and was risen from the dead. You are still loved by God because you are one of his children. Think about this because you may wish you had.

Do you actually believe that the earth and all life on it came from NOTHING? Think about that. How can life come from inert material? Then think about the theory of evolution. Evolution is a never ending system, and if that is the case, where are all of the forms of life that are in the act of transition? THERE ARE NONE, when there should be thousands or millions. Instead, there are nothing but species that have not changed in thousands of years. Only a fool believes that lunacy!
