Too bad we don’t have several more Judge Napolitanos sitting on the surpreme court. On the rare occasion I disagree with him, I can still respect him.

It is impossible to be charitable with someone else’s money. Charity comes from your own heart, not from the government spending your money. When we pay our taxes to the government and it gives that money away, that’s not charity, that’s welfare. When the government takes more from us than it needs to secure our freedoms, so it can have money to give away, that’s not charity, that’s theft.

Amen. Truer words have never been spoken.

What is a good? A good is something we want or need. In a sense, it is the opposite of a right. We have our rights from birth, but we need our parents when we are children and we need ourselves as adults to purchase the goods we require for existence. So, food is a good, shelter is a good, clothing is a good, education is a good, a car is a good, legal representation is a good, working out at a gym is a good, and access to health care is a good. Does the government give us goods? Well, sometimes it takes money from some of us and gives that money to others. You can call that taxation or you can call it theft; but you cannot call it a right.

BUMP!

The Judge needs to either be the AG or a SCOTUS nominee in the Palin administration.

We slept while a whole generation was educated in Leftist Newspeak. Equality too has been reinterrpretated. Equal is “before the law.” Not equal wages nor equal anything else but when charged with crime the attributes of the parties are not to be taken into account. I believe that’s why Justice is BLINDFOLDED.

Judge Napolitano frames the debate very well. Last guy to articulate the issues in simple English like this was Reagan.

* It is impossible to be charitable with someone else’s money.
* When we pay our taxes to the government and it gives that money away, that’s not charity, that’s welfare.
* When the government takes more from us than it needs to secure our freedoms, so it can have money to give away, that’s not charity, that’s theft.
* When the government forces hospitals to provide free health care to those who can’t or won’t care for themselves, that’s not charity, that’s slavery.

Why doesn’t Judge Napolitano run for president?

Great article. Wonder if he’s willing to take the reigns on ‘this truth’ and run with it?

Jeremy Holden of Media Matters' blogs:

"When is a good not a good? When it's a right?"

"Idiots, 6th Amendment, nuts and abortion, right to life"
are the tag words in response to the Judge's commentary.

That all sounds great, but it doesn’t matter if the American people are so stupid as to 40-50% of them think that Healthcare is a right and don’t know it is redistribution of wealth. It also doesn’t matter if the 40 Republicans don’t do anything to stop it. Remember, the Fox News audience is already sold, and on the right side. The Left doesn’t even recognize the Constitution...they recognize European laws, “feel good”, reparations, and jury nullification-esque activities as their duties.

We don’t have enough time to wait until Monday to find out what Rush thinks, etc. I wish we had a pulse on the real activities on our side that have merit and possibility from here forward.

What is a right? A right is a gift from God that extends from our humanity. Thinkers from St. Thomas Aquinas, to Thomas Jefferson, to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to Pope John Paul II have all argued that our rights are a natural part of our humanity. We own our bodies, thus we own the gifts that emanate from our bodies. So, our right to life, our right to develop our personalities, our right to think as we wish, to say what we think, to publish what we say, our right to worship or not worship, our right to travel, to defend ourselves, to use our own property as we see fit, our right to due process—fairness—from the government, and our right to be left alone, are all rights that stem from our humanity. These are natural rights that we are born with. The government doesn’t give them to us and the government doesn’t pay for them and the government can’t take them away, unless a jury finds that we have violated someone else’s rights.

Spectacular!

Thanks for posting this Jim.
