Our Unalienable Right To A Bailout ;-)
This country was founded on the fact that as human beings we have certain unalienable rights endowed by our creator. These rights as outlined by the founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence were, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It’s absurd I know…they only gave us 3.
Luckily since those dark, dark days our politicians have been able to greatly expand our rights. We now have the right to housing, disaster aid, education, health care, and food, to name only a few. We have come a long way indeed.
I can not even imagine a society that would ask that you produce on your own in order to trade the value you created for the value that another created (sounds almost mid-evil). Our system of rights is far superior. It ensures that all of our citizens will succeed regardless of how incompetent, lazy or irresponsible they are.
Our founders would surely be impressed with the ability of the American people to reduce all risk and responsibility from society. Jefferson would be amazed at our resolve to multiply the rights that our Federal Government guarantees.
So today we have a great opportunity in front of us. There is chance to further expand the rights of the American people. Here is a list of some of those rights that could soon be our:
- The right to over extend our bets with no repercussions when they turn sour.
- The right to blindly place money into institutions with no regard for their soundness.
- The right to print dollars when ever we need to increase government spending and save the economy.
- The right to bailout any company no matter how fundamentally reckless there business strategy.
- The right to let a few people sitting in the Federal Reserve decide the value of the dollars in our pocket.
- The right to have politicians and special interests steal from taxpayers when we are too scared to stand up and fight on the basis of principle.
This is just the tip of the ice berg. Should we not see an economic improvement we can be sure that our politicians will be able to convince us of further expanding our rights.
In fact, with the expansion of all these rights for us our government has still had time to guarantee themselves some rights. Here is a list of just a few:
- The right to inflate the currency to pay for expansion of government power.
- The right to promise future tax dollars for current expenditures.
- The right to taxpayer property should they refuse to be taxpayers.
So lets hope that today is just the start of another great expansion of rights. Senate please vote YES for the “right to government bailout” bill that will be presented tonight.
…only 3 rights…no wonder George Washington had wooden teeth, bet he could have uses a “right to an electric toothbrush” bill….hey congress I have an idea.
