150 Years after The Emancipation Proclamation Slavery Re-introduced into the U.S.
The Valley Patriot (Mass.) ^ | Dr.Charles Ormsby

Posted on 12/18/2012 12:53:28 PM PST by ConservativeStatement

On September 22, 1862 President Lincoln used the news from Antietam (fought on September 17, 1862) to announce his proclamation freeing the slaves in those states still in active rebellion against the Federal Government as of January 1, 1863.

Amazingly, 150 years later, our recent national election endorsed a philosophy that embraces many of the core tenets of slavery. Ironically, this tightening of our shackles is being led by our first black president, was endorsed by well over ninety percent of American blacks and was supported by a super-majority of Jews who have had a history with slavery – and worse.

While The Emancipation Proclamation was announced somewhat precipitously, the abolition of slavery was a work in progress prior to Lincoln’s presidency and it wasn’t fully realized until December 1865 when the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution became effective.

It has been reinstated for a while.

See Child Support laws.

See Uniform Child Abduction Prevention Act (UCAPA).

I had a discussion with my 8 yr old the other day...
one of those “as you walk along the way” moments.

I asked her what slavery was, and she accurately described it as someone working for someone else for no pay. Yes, someone living off the fruits of someone else’s labor is slavery.

Then we started talking about the percentages - if the slave owner takes all the person’s fruits, that’s slavery.
If he takes 90%, that’s still slavery.
If he takes half, that’s still slavery.

Yep, people who work in this country are slaves to those who don’t.

From the article:

"America’s producers are not bound by manacles or beaten with canes when their “cooperation” is demanded as were many slaves on American plantations. Their enslavement has a kinder face, but if they refuse to obey their master, the consequences are very real. They will first receive legal demands, then court dates, then the confiscation of their property and/or imprisonment will be ordered … all backed by police with guns and with the authority to shoot if necessary."

"It doesn’t much matter if your jailer has a smiley face."

And one thing few sheeperal leftists are willing to admit is that it all comes down to armed (with guns) agents of the government forcing you to comply.

These modern slavemasters have proper names - democrats, Nazis, communists and socialists. All the names are accurate and are interchangeable.

Slavery = able bodied person living off the fruits of others.

So true.
