Evil Concealed By Money

by Walter E. Williams - November 19th, 2008 -

The bottom line is that we've become a nation of thieves, a value rejected by our founders. James Madison, the father of our Constitution, was horrified when Congress appropriated $15,000 to help French refugees. He said, "I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents." Tragically, today's Americans would run Madison out of town on a rail.

To those who see the evil of socialism, this article is obvious. To those who cannot see the evil of socialism, this article makes absolutely no sense at all. The socialist John Edwards was close to right when he said there are two Americas. There are not just two Americas. There are two human species; those who want to live free and those who are perfectly willing to live in slavery as long as they can make their neighbor live in slavery too.

That second position is unfortunately what America in the 21st Century represents. Our nation has become an insane joke. The free-est and richest people in history are throwing away both for socialism, a proven lie that has always failed. Can anything be more insane?
