In January 2008 Former President Bill Clinton addressed a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, here is a quote from his speech.
“Communitarianism is a movement that considers individualism an impediment to society uniformly adopting values the movement considers appropriate, including authoritarian gun control.”
So, do you think your individual freedoms are safe?
Clearly these pompous elitists think they are smarter and better than everyone else. In reality they are just a rehash of old fashioned socialism. My Grandfather would have called them “educated damn fools!” Conservatives are still the majority in this country, we need to become the vocal majority and put a stop to such foolishness. We need to teach, speak out, share, influence, and express our views at every opportunity.
If you do not consider this to be an important issue I suggest some reading:
- 1984 by George Orwell
- Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
- Animal Farm by George Orwell
- The Fountain Head by Ayn Rand
- Paradise Lost by John Milton
Freedom and Individuality were the building blocks of this country and they are what draw peoples from all over the world to our shores. If we give them up we loose our identity and frankly our value to humanity.
