John Edwards Flames Out on YouTube

This is an interview that John Edwards did for YouTube. He has a nice go of it until the “Shotgun Round”. It comes near the end of the interview. Pay close attention to his answers….

This is how the “Shotgun Round” went:
To each issue he was to answer if he thought it was a Right or a Privilege.

A College Education: Right.
Health Care: Right.
A Livable Wage: Right.
Owning a handgun: Privilege.
American Citizenship for someone not born here,
but has worked here for one year:
Privilege.
Access to the Internet: Right.

How did he do?

1. Nowhere in the Constitution or the Bill of Rights are citizens granted the Right to a college education. It has always been a privilege. Although in a Communist State, everyone has a Right to an education.

2. Once again, the Constitution and Bill of Rights do not mention health care. Universal health care is a Right in a Communist or Socialist State.

3. Strike Three. Sorry John, the Bill of Rights does not guarantee a livable wage. However, Communism provides work for everyone. You just might not like the job assigned to you in a “Worker’s Paradise”.

4. The Second Amendment to the Constitution states:
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
Sorry John, owning a handgun is a Right. It’s that pesky “shall not be infringed” clause. Everyone overlooks that point. In that nothing and they meant nothing can be done by the government to restrict the ownership of firearms. In that an armed citizenship cannot be subdued by the Government by force of arms. You know, like in Nazi Germany or Communist Russia. If (big if) John Edwards is elected President we all will know he’s lying when he swears to defend the Constitution for all enemies, foreign and domestic.

5. He says he thinks that people not born in this country should earn their citizenship. Thinks? Come on John, think hard. ….. Ooops, time’s up. It is a Right of everyone born in America to be granted the Right of Citizenship and be protected by the Bill of Rights. If you immigrate to this country you must renounce your former citizenship and EARN the PRIVILEGE to become an American citizen by adopting our laws, our customs, our language (while it’s still English) and swear allegiance to this country. My Mom had to, so everyone else has to.

6. Access to the Internet? Who is smoking what? That one is so stupid, I’m at a loss of words. Sure I’m enjoying access to the Internet right now and so are you for that matter. But a Right? If he thinks that access to the Internet should be a Right then so should driving a car. No licenses, no age limits, no tests. Here’s the keys, have at it. Maybe he’s hinting that access to the pornography available on the Internet is a Right.

Maybe he just doesn’t know the difference between a Right and a Privilege? That’s reassuring as we elect him to protect our Rights under the Constitution. John Edwards destroyed his chance to become our President in a mere 34 seconds. Unless of course the electorate doesn’t know the difference either.

Immigration-The Bucket Theory

So if you’ve been following the latest in Congressional antics you know that they are crafting a Amnesty Bill for illegal aliens.

Isn’t that special.

The Bucket Theory

Picture a bucket being filled from a spigot. The water pouring in is the mass “migration” of illegals. The bucket is the United States. The water in the bucket are all those people who are living in the United States and Congress is proposing that they should be granted amnesty and made U.S. citizens.

Follow so far? Great.

So the bucket is full and that attracts the attention of Congress and they enact an Amnesty Bill. Poof! All the water in the full bucket are all legal U.S. citizens.

But water is still coming out of the spigot. Where does it go? Right. Spilling out of the full bucket.

With that image in mind. Does it make sense to grant amnesty to illegal aliens who live in this country before you stem the flow of additional aliens coming over our borders?

I didn’t think so.

Send this to your senator and congressional representatives before it’s too late.

Secure the borders.
Stem Immigration. Legal or not.
Then address the problem of all these guest workers.

If you don’t want to get involved, then start to teach your children and grandchildren Spanish.

They’re going to need it.
