Progressives believe the principals of the Founding Fathers are irrelevant today. However, Dr. Kerr pointed out, “The same defects in human nature that inspired the Founding Fathers to protect us from government excesses. The lust for power still motivates some. Power still tends to corrupt and absolute power still tends to corrupt absolutely. Men still covet each other’s processions. Leisure is still more fun than work, and majority will still, when able, plunder the assets from minorities.” Dr. Kerr said that now, as our population grows, we need Local and State governments to deal with local and state issues.
He, also, pointed out that when you spend a dollar on one person you have to take that dollar from someone else. Where is the moral value in that and how do we expect our nation to survive when we take from the producers and give to the “loafers”? As Dr. Kerr said, “When you punish people through taxation for producing, and you pay people through entitlement programs for loafing, you will get more loafing and less production.”
Now is the time for us to save our republic. Dr. Kerr issued this challenge to us, “Speak boldly. Call thievery thievery. Call fascism fascism. Hound your congressman and senators until they are sick of hearing from you or until they do the right thing.” He said, “It is un-American for the government to exceed its Constitutional bounds.”He listed acts of our government that were un-American, including the bailouts. Most importantly he said, “It was despicable, it was unconscionable, and it’s absolutely un-American have accumulated such a mind boggling national debt and unfunded liabilities. This debt will doom our children and grandchildren to a crippling level of taxation and make them indenture servants to the government.” We need to vote out every “thieving incumbent” that got us into this mess!
