Alex Epstein Quote

“America was founded on the principle of inalienable rights, not dictated duties. The Declaration of Independence states that every human being has a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It does not state that he is born a slave to the needs of others.”

Obamacare is a blatant example of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land's canons that define the individual being born to be a slave to the needs of others. Compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity, civil rights - as are averse to inalienable rights are further examples of slavery - cradle to grave.

Hear, hear! It is the epitome of selfishness to demand the fruits of other people's labors as an entitlement.
