Do you understand why we hear so much about fairness and equality these days? It seems that every time Barack Obama opens his mouth he is spouting something or other about one or both of these words!
Rabbi Daniel Lapin, American Alliance of Jews and Christians, was a guest on the Glenn Beck Program last week. While speaking with Stu Burguiere, guest host, Rabbi Lapin explained that these two words are often used by those “seeking to increase tyranny and totalitarianism…. For those seeking to increase tyranny and totalitarianism, fairness and equality is a great thing to work people up about, because you essentially get a population – particularly a docile population – to agree to almost anything in the name of equality and fairness.” The Rabbi further explained that freedom is being eroded by those using these two words.
Think about it. How did Barack Obama get elected the first time? He had no experience as a leader; he had not served even one full term in the U.S. Senate. Yet he was elected. How was he elected to a second term with his terrible record? Why did people vote for him? Mitt Romney said it exactly right. Mr. Obama was re-elected because he promised to be Santa Clause and give people what they wanted. He was elected because he promised the “have nots” that the wealth of the “haves” would be redistributed to them in the name of “fairness and equality.” Every speech he has presented, every executive order he has written, every news conference he has given – every time he speaks or takes any official action he does it in the name of “fairness and equality.”
Mr. Obama is not the only one using “fairness and equality” – sometimes known as “social justice” – to get elected. All Democrats use one or more of these terms whenever they open their mouths. We need to understand – and remember – that anyone who spouts “fairness and equality” or “social justice” is seeking to increase tyranny and totalitarianism and vote for their opponent! If we are to protect our liberty from further erosion and maybe restore some of our freedoms, we must learn to recognize the enemies of our Republic. Tyranny and totalitarianism have no place in our democratic Republic. The U.S. Constitution was written and ratified to safeguard all Americans – and all people – from tyranny and totalitarianism. The progressives who use these terms are simply working towards moving our government closer to socialism and communism.
