Saying No to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders: Why a New Political Paradigm of Liberty is Needed
Thoughts on Liberty and Freedom
By Lee Enochs
By now, you may have noticed we are in Presidential election season. This means there are a lot of sleazy political suits out there promising a lot of things they can’t deliver. If you listen to the liberal Hillary Clinton and the leftist socialist Bernie Sanders, they talk a lot about what government should be delivering to the American people.
Yet, we all know this is ludicrous because our government is corrupt and bankrupt at ever level. Besides, I did not make any social contract to the federal government and absolutely no obligation to meet its demands.
Honestly, the only reason why I pay taxes and minimally obey its laws is because I do not want to be thrown in prison. Other than that, I have no obligation to government. I do not want anything to do with it.
All I want from government is to be free from it. I want to be left alone from government intrusion and interference.
Everything uncle Bernie and auntie Hillary are pitching is the same old stale and tired big government, new deal liberalism that has driven us to the brink of financial ruin.
Somehow, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are under the opinion that we the people have some sort of liberal social contract with the federal government and are obligated to believe the federal government should tax us and demand from us at the astronomical level that it is now.
It is very obvious that the current welfare and entitlements state have caused has bankrupted America and has brought us to the brink of catastrophic destruction. Because of this, all the tired old promises Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are making should be viewed with grave suspicion.
I believe a new political paradigm is needed. One that frees the American people from catastrophic taxation and ensures maximum freedom of government.
It is simply a lie that Sanders and Clinton are pitching that we have some sort of liberal social contract with the federal government that we are obligated to obey and give our time and money too.
It’s time to break the chains of servitude to federalism and internationalism and be free to live free.
I owe you nothing and you owe me nothing as well. We happen to find ourselves on this polluted earthy sphere and it’s time to figure out how to be free from the brokenness of human government which taxes us too much and gives so little in return.
