***”Protesters who have been trying to get 2nd Congressional District Rep. Jason Lewis’s attention got it last night.
A group rallied outside his Woodbury home and a video of their demonstration was later posted to YouTube. In the video, protesters left a large letter for Lewis demanding he oppose cuts to Medicaid.
“Healthcare is a human right,” the group chanted in his neighborhood, as shown in the YouTube video.”***
Well, there you have it folks. These protestors believe it is their “human right” to have government force used to confiscate the earned wages of their neighbor, and then use that money to finance these protestor’s personal economic needs.
And what did one of our forefathers say with regard to this very idea?
"Under a just and equal Government, every individual is entitled to protection in the enjoyment of the whole product of his labor, except such portion of it as is necessary to enable Government to protect the rest; this is given only in consideration of the protection offered. In every bounty, exclusive right, or monopoly, Government violates the stipulation on her part; for, by such a regulation, the product of one man’s labor is transferred to the use and enjoyment of another. The exercise of such a right on the part of Government can be justified on no other principle, than that the whole product of the labor or every individual is the real property of Government, and may be distributed among the several parts of the community by government discretion; such a supposition would directly involve the idea, that every individual in the community is merely a slave and bondsman to Government, who, although he may labor, is not to expect protection in the product of his labor. An authority given to any Government to exercise such a principle, would lead to a complete system of tyranny." __ See Representative Giles, speaking before Congress February 3rd, 1792
So, the fact of the matter is, these free government cheese protestors support the very foundation of tyranny, and have no objection to government force being used to engage in what amounts to robbery!
"To lay with one hand the power of the government on the property of the citizen and with the other to bestow upon favored individuals, to aid private enterprises and build up private fortunes is none the less a robbery because it is done under forms of law and called taxation." ____ Savings and Loan Association v. Topeka,(1875).
