Absolutely not, Waffler.  The cops, the IRS (Waffler's employer), the FBI, the courts, are doing the STATE'S business  a police state at that.  They call themselves 'the people' but they are their overlords enforcing statutes dictated by the State, rights or not.  All of these alphabet agencies were created in the 20th century  how did Americans make it without them for 200 years?  These are totalitarian instruments to enforce unconstitutional statutes upon the citizenry.

There's a big difference between setting a good example and enforcing it upon others.

Quite true.  Few would know it though since American History is no longer a required subject much less Western Civilization, except the parts where all the nations have become socialist democracies under the UN.  Americans threw off the claims of Church and Crown and had to fight a bloody war in the process.  IN many ways it was the culmination of Christian civilization and reformation that empowered the West.  Liberty has been the cause of mankind, and America acquired it while Europeans continued to suffer under the rule of monarchy.

The only real hope for liberty in America is for liberty to become the foundation for other countries.  Future Jefferson's and Franklin's and Washington's will be needed and a populace that is tired of being oppressed by a system of oligarchy.

Sounds like an apologia for socialism.  Socialism provides no protection against communism, that's the direction in which it moves.  Once authoritarianism is accepted as the right of the State, it has only one way to go, totalitarianism in whatever form.  Stop it!  Stop trying to force your idea of compassion into 'law' which is the only way a socialist can deliver anything.  It doesn't work  except to empower the employees of the State.  And that is why it is pursued.  The New Deal has been a raw deal and will only push America further into servitude to globalist rulers.  And why?  Because of the poor that need the compassion of the People, we will enslave all to the laws of a totalitarian state in order to _______ (fill in your pet political cause here).  Dupes!

No caveat necessary  groups have NO rights other than the rights of the individuals within them.  Protect the rights of the individual, rich or poor, and no special dispensations required for minority groups.  A large group may wield more power than a small group, but the rights of ALL the individuals of both groups have the same rights.

Do not confuse the 'right' with power.  Collective power often assumes majority rights over others, might making right.  The Declaration of Independence asserts that the rights of the individual are inherent and inalienable and that the purpose of the new government is to secure those rights for all.  That is the foundation for Americans still.  The majority does not rule!  The People rule themselves without government, if they form a government they will rule the government too.

The corruption has been that the US government has become the most powerful in the world, and the People lost control of it a long time ago.  It is a de facto facist democracy that assumes power over the People and has twisted the minds of the youth into a maze of fallacies.  Once they figure it out many years later, they find themselves permanently indentured to authoritarianism.  Back to everyone having a 'lord' to obey all the way up to the Czars that truly rule.

The freedom fighter's first foe is the delusion holding him/her in bondage.

Education is NOT social work!  Sheesh.

Look no further than the 'tolerant' Left for 24/7 vitriol.

That's nothing  the false charges are coming from those who are in fact guilty of the very same charges and worse, not merely imagining the guilt of others.  It is the Democrat playbook to not only deny allegations but claim Trump is doing it.  Sexual impropriety, Russian dealings, pay-for-play, fraud, corruption, assassination  you name it, the Clinton's have been doing it for decades.  It is classic psycho-politics.

What I say to myself forms the boundaries of my world.  Living is a form of dialogue with the world, within and without, worlds within worlds. 

The 'civilized' world is the world of people in dialogue with each other.  This dialogue forms 'our' world.  Whether an individual or a group discovers a previously unknown truth, its revelation challenges perceptions and tears down worlds. 

In other words, I am saved from living in a delusional world by others, and vice versa.  A people silent towards each other are indeed in their own worlds.

Let the truth be told to be put to the test.

Yes, but as Mike has said, the argument does not acknowledge that Liberty is the premise rather than public discourse.  Free speech is used to lay claim to others all the time  we should be able to refute it and ignore it.  "Maintaining" free speech also props up lies as not all that is spoken is true.  Who is to do the 'maintaining'?  'Social welfare' is also a buzz word for 'statism' as there needs to be someone to manage the welfare of society.

The emperor is wearing no clothes.

Same as it ever was.  The truth must be sought out diligently, there are so many forces at work to put on appearances to cover up the lack of substance.  Every tradition has become corrupted.  Every government bureau is now a labor racket.  The airwaves are filled with propaganda.  Science is settled.  I've been fed a bunch of crap for a LONG time now.  Depriving people of hearing these views IS the point!

E Archer, NYC

Without rational argument and logical debate, arrogance and ignorance will have no bounds.  Whatever happened to 'sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.'  Is that not spoken any more in Kindergarten?

E Archer, NYC

But that is the oldest trick in the politicians playbook.  Whatever they want to do, they first create a problem for which the solution is their original plan.  It's their bread and butter.  How come no one asks where the government has been delegated the power to prohibit various drugs and plants from the people?  The drug laws are there not to stop the drug trade but to monopolize it and profit from it.  Who would be out of work besides the drug cartels if drug prohibitions were lifted?  Half the prisons, courts, lawyers, police, pharmacists would be unnecessary.  Americans should be tired of their uppity servant government which now dares 'govern' their bosses.

Once again, it's a battle of words.  Redefining 'violence' to include 'hurting' one's feelings.  To hold an opinion is considered the 'bullying' of others with opposing views.  Misuse of language, twisting the meaning of words  look no further than the legal establishment which uses every trick in the book to fleece the common people of the fruits of their labors by the stroke of a pen.  'Hate speech' is not only grammatically incorrect, it is a ploy to omit and prohibit opposing viewpoints.  'Screw you!' is hateful speech obviously, but where does and who draws the line and by what authority?  Trying to shut people up is not liberal or progressive, THAT is violence, not the speech.

E Archer, NYC

The Blame Game is an old racket designed to obfuscate the responsibilities of a free people.  Leftists have a responsibility problem.  Their claims to 'rights' require others to provide for them.  The entire premise is a logical fallacy.  There is no 'right' to the fruits of another's labor.  Socialism is legalized theft.

Funny how all the Ivy League schools started as seminaries, but now Christianity has become a dirty word and transgenders are glorified. It won't be long that toxic masculinity will lead to toxic-Americanism.  It is a war right underneath our noses.

RBE, a while back you posted that you now have a gun and possibly even a concealed carry permit.  Would you be willing to explain your change of heart?

Thanks.  It couldn't be clearer and more obvious.

Independence, courage, and freedom are integral for a free people.  But cut off the individual from expressions of patriotism, morality, and spiritual life, where are the supports?  Individualism is not a rejection of association, but is the premise behind association itself.  The individual does not give away his/her personal power when agreeing to a code of association.  Consent can only be given voluntarily.

"And when their servitude lasts and their thoughts follow their behavior, the state becomes totalitarian and subjection is complete."  That's how authoritarianism transforms liberty into servitude.

E Archer, NYC

Indeed!  However, our taxes don't even come close to covering the expenses  the bulk of it all is borrowed on the backs of the People forever.  Frankly, the cost just isn't worth the return.  And the content of the education has become 'socialized' to indoctrinate rather than answer the questions of the student.  It's a labor racket through and through, financed by eternal debt  because no one would pay for it directly, because the investment yields little return.  Never expect education to include how the state fleeces its citizens from cradle to grave for promises that it will not and cannot keep.
