The Declaration of Independence? Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Meh. That's so, like, 18th century. No, Ed Schultz has come out with a new declaration of what he calls the Four Pillars of American Life: health care, jobs, education and equality.

Schultz promulgated his manifesto on the year-in-review episode of his MSNBC show today.

View the video here.

Pillars of American Life?

Was he inspired by the Pillars of Islam, in coming up with such a title????

Can I ask a stupid question? In Obama’s America, led by a good liberal such as Obama, whom people like Schulz absolutely adore and deify, how are these issues problems to be solved?

In Obama’s America, we have Obamacare, which is supposed to deliver quality affordable healthcare. Isn’t it doing its job???

In Obama’s America, Obama allegedly saved us from the worst economic downturn since the Depression. Unemployment has been dropping. At least officially it has. So how is this area a problem???

In Obama’s America, more people than ever are graduating from high school, and going on to college, if they choose to do so. Student loans have been nationalized. Is lack of educational opportunity really a problem???

In Obama’s America, we have elected a non-white president, who himself is a powerful symbol that the discrimination of the past is long gone. We have greater equality of opportunity today than ever before in our history. Is equality really a problem today???

Idiot liberals believe that they are entitled to an easy life even if they need to turn the US into North Korea.

I’ll believe that Mr. Ed truly believes in equality when his income is the same as the illegal alien who sweeps up his studio.

Democrats are in the process of destrying the Helathcare system, they’ve already eliminated millions of jobs and lowered wages and hours, they’ve turned our educational system into a worldwide joke, and they’ve declared a war on the White Middle Class.

Yup, the Four Pillars of the Progressive Platform

Gee, and what do conservatives offer instead?

*Good Health Care, *Good Jobs*, *Good Education*, and *Equality Of Opportunity*. But they also offer *National Security*, from out enemies, both foreign and domestic; the *Right To Work* for yourself and your family, not government and not in a union, if you don’t want to. Conservatives also offer *Freedom Of Religion*, not “freedom from religion”. They also offer *The Right To Bear Arms*.

Importantly, right now, conservatives offer *Less Government*. Less government to be a money wasting, future destroying, regulatory monster to interfere with their lives, to horn in where it is not wanted, and to hurt people in the name of helping them.

These are the four main themes of liberal campaigns, not “pillars of American life”.

When I’ve seen Mr. Ed I always thought he was just playing a part putting us on. I really have to suspend belief to think that someone could be such a doofus.

Socialism Is Legal Plunder

Now, legal plunder can be committed in an infinite number of ways. Thus we have an infinite number of plans for organizing it: tariffs, protection, benefits, subsidies, encouragements, progressive taxation, public schools, guaranteed jobs, guaranteed profits, minimum wages, a right to relief, a right to the tools of labor, free credit, and so on, and so on. All these plans as a whole — with their common aim of legal plunder — constitute socialism.

Above all, if you wish to be strong, begin by rooting out every particle of socialism that may have crept into your legislation.

The Law - Frederic Bastiat 1801-1850

Socialists naturally go further, their demands become greater and before you know it the yoke of TOTALITARIANISM is around your neck. Your labor / time of life is stolen for their whims, their supporters, their pleasures. Your children and grandchildren are born as debt slaves to socialists.

FReedom - “begin by rooting out every particle of socialism that may have crept into your legislation.”

DEFUND socialist schemes/collectives, foreign and domestic.
DEPOPULATE socialists from the body politic.
