IMHO, between 40% to 46% already do support slavery.

That why we are a Republic, not a Democracy.

Such questions illustrate that our Founders, unlike today’s Teachers’ Union excremental end product, understood the difference between a Republic and a Democracy and why on a large scale the latter invariably leads to mob rule followed immediately by some sort of homicidal dictatorship. In a Republican system like ours it take far more than a “majority” to effect meaningful change.

Use the poor as food for cattle. (Sorry, just joking.)

lesson:

if you’re in the top 5% of earners... do not live in NY, MA, CA, or any democrat controlled state.

if you can, i’d also recommend going Galt. it hurts the administration in the only way they listen to. everyone can go Galt to some extent... just minimize your spending as much as you can.

This is where the Left totally ignore’s the MORAL problem with Slavery that was brought forth by Christians in England and the US; and also those who used the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution and the arguments to abolish slavery that were made when both were being written.

It was moral outrage based upon Christianity that lead the abolition movement and kept it going, NOT secular polling data and ‘feel goodism”.

What if a majority of Americans support slavery.

Natural rights such as liberty are God-given and have primacy over the will of the majority.In a free society,when self defense or the process of justice is not involved, the will of the majority is not a justification for the use of force to violate an innocent individual's natural rights.

What If ‘A Majority of Americans Support Slavery’?

They already do.
And it's working perfectly, thankyouverymuch.

If you add federal employees to the parasites who pay no income taxes and live off the Obama-stash, they are clearly the majority.

And they define what the "fair share" is for the rest of us.

Slavery by another name.

If a majority support slavery, then maybe it's time to quit voting for liberals. Support Tom Hoefling for President.
