Jay's Tuesday Free Enterprise Quote

By
Home Inspector with Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC 3380-000723

"There is no question that if one were to ask whether we Americans are moving towards more liberty or more government control over our lives, the answer would unambiguously be the latter -- more government control over our lives.  We might have reached a point where the trend is irreversible and that is a true tragedy for if liberty is lost in America, it will be lost for all times and all places."

                                                             Walter E. Williams

If it is gone here, where would it resurrect?  Resurrection means bringing back what was before, and in a better state!  You cannot resurrect from somewhere else what isn't there now.

And so I agree with Dr. Williams's statement.

This is similar to Ronald Reagan's proclamation, "America is a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere."

People aren't coming here because we are smarter, bigger, faster or more beautiful than elsewhere in the world.  They come here for the opportunity to become what freedom will allow them to become!  And to pass on that expression of individuality for their posterity.  Aren't all people interested in their posterity?

I don't see boatloads of people trying to flee elsewhere for Cuba. Or China, North Korea or even "modern" Russia.  There is no shining city there, no beacon, and no trend toward more liberty, despite the propaganda of some ill-minded people.  The rest of the world gets it.

And so, when we have the choice between liberty and gubment control, the choice could not be clearer.

Like the first governor of my state, one Patrick Henry, I WILL TAKE LIBERTY EVERY TIME.

Lenn - they may be "Americans," but they cannot be Americans.  Real Americans like what we have and are not about to denigrate or remove it.  Those who would simply want control and inviduality and expression of personal liberty makes that control very difficult.

Wallace - I try to schedule my day for when he substitutes!  He is just as much fun to communicate with privately too.

What I will never understand is how so many people that have emigrated to this country will continually point put how much nicer it is to live where they came from. They love to vacation 'back home' and talk of going back to live there when they retire, with their American Social Security check of course.

And how about those who have children here, whom they move "home" so they can receive those checks Ed!

Like most americans, my vote is for liberty too.  Seems too many need to be reminded.

And you and I probably wonder why Leah.  Why would we have to be reminded?

I think we take a lot for granted, without realizing, as a people, how crappy it is elsewhere.

Jay - It's easy to understand why some would proclaim that without liberty, death is the better choice. And I do fear that we've crossed that "tipping point" beyond which the return is nearly impossible.

Again, John, as I said above, I hope the cliche that we should never say never applies here and now!

Dr. Williams for President. He is one of the best in my opinion.

Jay,

Prior to the Wisconsin protests and the actions of the Republican House I would have suggested we were close to a tipping pint. Now I see the momentum returning to the middle. :)

Steve - the Wisconsin Rep House or the US Congress?  And are you sure you want a return to the middle?

Jay,

No middle. I meant that the pendulum was heading back that direction - where it has to go on its way to the right. :)
