How do you measure up to the Founders?
Curtis posted a series of quotes to reinforce the notion most of us share that Liberty can only exist in a country of moral people, here. It ties into a conversation that evolved on a thread below. It seems anytime we discuss morality and Liberty and finding the line between the two, folks get heated, quickly. And that is a fair dispute.
Nothing beyond this point has anything to do with Curtis or his positions. But after reading what I have written, I would suggest you read his collection of quotes and measure yourself against those from our past.
My question yesterday I ask again today, and the ideal topic to illustrate the point is abortion.
Abortion is a core issue, the debate between the murder of a defenseless newborn or the scraping of a few cells. This debate faster than any other will bring people to blows.
One need not be a religious person to believe abortion is murder. And many religious folks come down pro-abortion. But the religious ant-abortion crowd occupies the most militant end of the spectrum, filled with righteous indignation.
So, here is the simple question: Why have these morally offended folks not stopped abortions?
Why haven't you even tried?
Do not tell me it can't be done. When George Tiller took one to the head, the number of doctors in America still performing late-term abortions was 2.
Scott Roeder proved how easy it truly is to reduce the number of doctors willing to do late-term abortions to zero.
So, for you morally outraged folks who hold the position that abortion is murder, why have you never left the porch and ended the practice? 53,000,000+ defenseless babies have been murdered since Roe, and you have not stopped one, when it is in your power. Scott Roeder has stopped how many? Hundreds? Where is your praise for him? Where is his monument? Hell, have any of you even filled his commissary account so he can afford to buy some mackeral packets in prison?
If you have it in your power to stop the murder of a defenseless unborn child, the most defenseless of human beings, and you do have it in your power, and you always have, why haven't you done anything about it?
From a tactical and strategic perspective, ending abortions, or at least stopping 95% of them, could be done in a week with 10-man teams in each state.
All you folks who rant and rave about how evil abortion is are getting uncomfortable right now, aren't you?
I don't want to hear the excuses. I am not going to participate in a debate about abortion. This is not about abortion.
This is about supposed moral outrage, being in a power position to end the moral wrong, and doing nothing about it.
That is where you all stand, those of you who rail about the moral outrage of abortion.
The simple reality is that you were unwilling to take the personal risk, to expose yourself on behalf of the defenseless unborn.
Zoomie built a very cool graphic that had a picture of George Washington, and said "I and my compatriots would be shooting by now."
If we as a nation will not act and take a personal risk to save the slaughter of unborn Countrymen, it becomes easy to understand why we are on a path to Communism and that train will not stop.
It is because we are not the same people as were our Founders.
Were I a doctor assessing the prognosis for Liberty, I'd have to call Time of Death by now.
Just examine the premise and the facts, folks. Then apply to yourself, and ask the hard question.
I have. I am going to Washington on November 3rd.
I can't be bothered any longer by those who will rail without action.
