Freedom from want is what the communists promise but never get around to delivering (unless you’re an elite crony or a government apparatchik who is needed by the elites to screw the regular folks). It’s the lie that has been keeping Illinois spending “other people’s money” in a ponzie scheme that is unraveling as we watch. It’s ObamaCare, which was also a scam of income redistribution and ‘social justice’. Other people’s money spends so much more sweetly than your own, earned by the sweat of YOUR brow.
The right to dignity? Dignity is state or quality of being worthy of honor or respect. The Founding Fathers never offered you that as a condition of birth. Honor and respect are earned. There is a faux dignity where the elites give themselves medals and testimonial dinners for not doing anything, but America sees through that. It’s why Hillary Clinton wasn’t elected president. Respect is something that is bestowed as a condition of fidelity. Social justice warriors hijacked the term “dignity” and applied it to scoundrels. You hear the term tossed around in conjunction with minorities from time to time as I did on Saturday.
Teddy was Correct:
Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.
‘In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.’
