Redefining America

The Left has taken a remarkable tact in dominating how we think.    If we take the etymology of liberty:

And compare it with the etymology of liberal:

We find that they have changed the definition to the polar opposite of  its roots in freedom to one that gives up freedom or liberty to the State and makes us the wards whether wanted or not.

Now, they have a new Ruler that continues this method to the extremes.

Obama's plan for peace is to bomb people we don't know that are trying to escape totalitarian Islamic regimes, send money and arms to Radical Muslims that believe they can issue in their Mahdi by starting World War III.

Obama's jobs plan has put more people OUT of work than can find it.

And NOW, in his latest en devour, Obama has created a healthcare system that has taken health coverage AWAY from people and made it nearly impossible to replace.   If they are among the few successful, they can look forward to higher rates, higher deductibles, and lower quality as Doctors will be forced to take less patients while being reimbursed less.   If we use Medicare as the example, many Doctors can't afford to provide the services as they will lose money on their time.

So, what has REALLY been redefined is failure:

Founders on Private Ownership

"He who is permitted by law to have no property of his own, can with difficulty conceive that property is founded in anything but force."  -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Bancroft, January 26, 1788.

"Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government which impartially secures to every man whatever is his own."   -James Madison, Essay on Property, March 29, 1792.

"The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If 'Thou shalt not covet" and 'Thou shalt not steal' were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society before it can be civilized or made free."     -John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America, 1787.

“The pillars of our prosperity are the most thriving when left most free to individual enterprise.”   --Thomas Jefferson
