New MSNBC promo: You have the right to health care, education, housing, and food at all times
HotAir ^ | April 10, 2013 | Allahpundit

Posted on 04/10/2013 1:01:48 PM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

Via Newsbusters, something to tide you over on a news day that started out fast and has slowed considerably. Give Harris-Perry credit, at least, for fine-tuning her messaging. You’re not going to sell swing voters on far-left liberalism by telling them their kids don’t really belong to them, but tell them that they have a right “at all times” to things they need and you’re golden. If you polled the public on whether people should have a right to all of this, where would the numbers top out? Seventy percent? Eighty? The American public loves, loves, loves government spending, partly because they’re never asked to consider the zero-sum nature of federal expenditures in a budget that balances and partly because they still don’t fully appreciate the consequences of endless borrowing. Both parties spent years shrugging at the fallacy that current spending levels can be supported by current tax rates. Under those circumstances, why wouldn’t the average low-information think everyone should have the right to housing, food, etc? Throw in the right to phone service and personal transportation while you’re at it. Put it on our collective tab.

My father always made it a point to tell me that the world didn’t owe me a living.

I guess Dad was wrong.

Yeah, but not at someone else’s expense. You also have a right to be clothed and fed and ride around in a limousine if you like and can afford it.

All of this is happening because republicans don’t have the cahoneys to call Obama and the democrats out for the insane communists they have become. So every radical leftist idea is being unleashed.

And the GOP “leaders” sit around worrying that maybe a lot of people agree with this crap.

We need to stop compromising, intellectualizing, etc. and fight ideas that are destroying America.

She doesn't even believe this.

She's committed to the destruction of the people who believe her in the Lenin/Stalin sense of the word, and will say whatever it takes to accomplish it.

good point. On the other hand, I am glad that jobs are not on the list. Just as the Obama administration is dictating our health care and other facets of our lives, imagine if it had the power to dictate what jobs we work at.

Don't they have all this stuff in North Korea and Cuba?

Problem is, all this stuff depends on your perspective.

A 50 sq meter commie bloc apartment with intermittent electricity is a place to live.

Rice rations, beans and stale bread are food.

An antiquated medical facility with a state employed doctor making 50k a year is medical care.

Spoiled Americans with zero perspective of how bad it can get think "free" everything means they are going to get a mini-Kim Kardashian lifestyle.

Even worse, our new neighbors from Mexico and south do KNOW how bad it can get but think the golden goose white man can never run out of golden eggs.

From the 3rd Amendment.

They will declare all liberals to be "soldiers" for the cause, and then declare the "war on women" or something (maybe even "terror"), and then demand these soldiers to be quartered in your house, to eat your food, and wear your clothes. :-)

To whom does the “from” and “to” refer?

The your children are property of the state (collective) comes out of the illegal wire tap of McConnel’s office published in Mother Jones print and audio outlets.Who were “exposing” the Senate minority leader and creating another lefty victim Ashley nut case Judd, and her carpetbag entry into the KY US senate race.

There is another trap being used and that is the so called opposition to cutting Social Security by the Soros off the wall outlets. That while the Republican nitwits are praising Obama (instead of calling him a liar) for supporting budget cuts..

Even Limbaugh didn’t catch this drift on todays show. Let’s hope he thinks about that move and brings up that slant to it tommorrow.

In case you’re wondering where she could possibly have gotten this notion of universal welfare...

THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS - UNITED NATIONS (1948)

Article 25.

(1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

(2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.

Is that right!!! Then I demand that Warren Buffett give me 1/3 of all his assets so that I can provide my family with all of those things we have a “right to” but don’t want to work any harder for, any longer. C’mon Warren will never miss it and he lives right across town.

Next, you geniuses at MSNBC, you’re next in line to support my neighbors when they decide not to work so get ready to fork over your assets boys and girls.

Before the Emancipation Proclamation, democrat plantation owners had the right to own slaves and now the democrat party is trying to bring back its heritage of slavery by making tax slaves out of all of us, except for them and their supporters.

You have the right to jack and $h!t and the sole of my boot on your asses.

Keep pushing us all toward that 1776 moment you National Socialist Democrats.

‘The State’ will take, ‘The State’ will give.

Trouble with the plan is that eventually the State takes so much that those with ability decide there is no point in making things and that they may as well just take like the others. They decide “I will only make enough to satisfy the overlords. It makes no difference how much I produce I earn no more. Why should I work harder than my neighbor if it does not profit it me.

If there is no profit in work, work becomes self defeating. If no one works eventually everyone dies. This is why communist states must be prison states. People must be forced to remain there because everyone not in the leadership knows that death surrounds them.

The "government" has become the once-reviled "company store," as in Tennessee Ernie Ford's ditty, ending with the words, "I owe my soul to the company store."

Only too late will today's generations learn that lesson, after their freedom and dreams have been destroyed.

Now is the time to retell the American Founders' story, heed their warnings, and, in the words of Jefferson's First Inaugural, "return to the only road which leads to peace, liberty, and safety."

"To preserve [the] independence [of the people,] we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debts as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our callings and our creeds, as the people of England are, our people, like them, must come to labor sixteen hours in the twenty-four, give the earnings of fifteen of these to the government for their debts and daily expenses, and the sixteenth being insufficient to afford us bread, we must live, as they now do, on oatmeal and potatoes, have no time to think, no means of calling the mismanagers to account, but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers." --Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816. ME 15:39

"I deem [this one of] the essential principles of our government and consequently [one] which ought to shape its administration:... The honest payment of our debts and sacred preservation of the public faith." --Thomas Jefferson: 1st Inaugural, 1801. ME 3:322

"I sincerely believe... that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity under the name of funding is but swindling futurity on a large scale." --Thomas Jefferson to John Taylor, 1816. ME 15:23

"[With the decline of society] begins, indeed, the bellum omnium in omnia [war of all against all], which some philosophers observing to be so general in this world, have mistaken it for the natural, instead of the abusive state of man. And the fore horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression." --Thomas Jefferson to Samuel Kercheval, 1816. ME 15:40

I am afraid you are right..the 47% will vote for the freebies...that 47% will be 52% by the next election...so they will vote in the politicians that will give them the most freebies..and that is the Democrats..the two party system is over...the only thing left is the red states to separate themselves from the blue states somehow..I am not sure how that will happen..but it will be better in the longtime...lawyers will have a field day on this issue regarding government mandated issues...there has to be a way to fight back..but my vote is negated by illegals every election...

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.”—Attributed to Alexander Fraser Tytler

You are correct.

Marxists believe they can be gods, nay, they Should be gods.

The final version can be written:

The State giveth, The State taketh away.

“The State” has replaced “The Lord.”
