WORDISM: GOP DECLARES THAT AMERICA IS A PROPOSITIONAL STATE | nationalsalvation.net
"America is an idea - an idea that free people can govern themselves, that government's powers are derived from the consent of the governed, that each of us is endowed by their Creator with the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. America is the belief that any man or woman can - given economic, political, and religious liberty - advance themselves, their families, and the common good."
So if you agree with the proposition, you are an American. Being born here means nothing. Then they scream that immigration laws are not being enforced.
If anyone who Believes is an American, we should have what Brazil had when it was being settled. In the harbor was a boat with agents of Portuguese Inquisition, and no one was allowed to land until he had talked it over with THEM.
In a Propositional State, it is the Inquisition which decides who Americans are.
The Republican Party Obedients, like everybody else, knows the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence. Not one of them can recite the Preamble to Constitution. America was not founded to tell the world how it should behave. It is only by the American people and for the American people.
If taken as our guide to the world, the Declaration is pure Imperialism. Everyone back to Rome and long before enforced their will on other countries to CIVILIZE them.
For their own good.
The scariest thing in the world a person can say is, "It's for your own good."
A person who is doing something he admits HE wants to do have limits on his actions. But when someone is doing something For Your Own Good, he has no limits, no conscience, and no mercy.
