Skip to comments.Editorial: President Obama and the ‘New Birth of Freedom’ Inaugural
Posted on 01/12/2009 4:14:40 PM PST by tcg
At the core of the evil of slavery is an evil idea - that any human person can ever be treated as property to be used and disposed of rather than as a gift to be received, protected and respected. There are some choices which should never be allowed in a just society. The exercise of true freedom must be directed toward the true and the good or it becomes "anarchic" and "counterfeit". As we now look at the slavery of our past it is clear, the idea that an entire class of persons could be used and abused by those with greater power is reprehensible. Yet, in our own day, such an evil idea is again being called a right. It is ironic that as we inaugurate our first African American President another class of persons is being subjected to another form of slavery. We have established in our positive law a right to kill our children in the first home of the entire human race with every kind of instrument of torture, chemical weapon and induced, forcible eviction. God help us!
We cover our ears and fail to hear the cry of the poorest of the poor as Mother Theresa so aptly called these littlest neighbors in the womb. We seek to assuage our collective conscience with the rhetoric of choice. We allow the Police Power of the State to be used to enforce this new slavery, protecting it as an institution as we did the horror of the slavery of our past.

Still born, had to abort.
......Obama will speak to the Nation on a New Birth of Freedom.What does it mean?
Socialism and individual freedom are diametric. We find Obama and his ilk constantly (forgetting lying for the moment) spinning and using weasel words to dupe the ignorant. This charlatan can spin and lie all he wants. His number is plastered on every wall in this country.
Sorry Zero — there is no way in hell you can replace our freedoms with anything but LESS FREEDOM. But that is the agenda.....
I was thinking we could do an over/under on number of empty platitudes but i dont think it will be easy to count that high, so i think we do number of meaningful phrases
I go with 500/0
Obama has spent the last four years telling us Iraq was a mistake. He actually tried to lose the war by opposing the surge while his friends in congress tried to cut off funding. Now the theme of his Presidency will be about giving birth to freedom. Outrageous.
The obamanation wouldn’t know freedom if it bit him in his sorry marxist ass
Any freedom we have to get from government isn’t worth paying for. Keep your garbage O, and give us back the freedoms our Founding Fathers knew were ours without government. Go emancipate Kenya, you fruitcake.
Pres-Elec Obama, I know Freedom, and you are not freedom.
You don’t even know what the word Freedom means.
