READ THESE WORDS OF JOHN ADAMS WHO WARNED ABOUT THE EXACT KIND OF TYRANNY BEING EXERCISED BY AND OUT-OF-CONTROL CENTRAL GOVERNMENT AND A MAJORITY OF CITIZENS LOOKING FOR FREE STUFF WE SEE TODAY


“Property is surely a right of mankind as really as liberty. Perhaps, at first, prejudice, habit, shame or fear, principle or religion, would restrain the poor from attacking the rich, and the idle from usurping on the industrious; but the time would not be long before courage and enterprise would come, and pretexts be invented by degrees, to countenance the majority in dividing all the property among them, or at least, in sharing it equally with its present possessors.

Debts would be abolished first; taxes laid heavy on the rich, and not at all on the others; and at last a downright equal division of every thing be demanded, and voted. What would be the consequence of this? The idle, the vicious, the intemperate, would rush into the utmost extravagance of debauchery, sell and spend all their share, and then demand a new division of those who purchased from them. The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.

If “Thou shalt not covet,” and “Thou shalt not steal,” were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society, before it can be civilized or made free.”
- John Adams, A Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America

Sound familiar? If he spoke those words today he would be called an "extremist". And he was DEAD ON because this is EXACTLY what has happened.

Marxism, socialism, communism, statism, the entitlement mentality that have all come to pass, John Adams was describing without even knowing it. How could an ancient, ill-educated, unenlightened, unsophisticated, rich, old white man (according to liberals) be so prescient? Because he read Plato, Hobbes, Montesquieu, Lock, etc. and understood human nature and the nature of power and tyranny.

You don't know who furious I get when the no-nothings of today, who know nothing about our history and the wisdom of our founders and framers of our Constitution, repeat the mindless insipid assertions that these men were nothing special - in fact, they were rich old white men who were endowed with some of the worse qualities possible to civilized man.

What nincompoops these brainless people are.

John Adams and the rest of these great men would recoil in horror at what has been done to their great experiment in freedom and self-rule.

I'm so sorry, great men and dear souls ... and all other dear souls who sacrificed so much to give us this great gift. We have squandered it and thrown it into the trash for filthy lucre. We didn't have what it takes and are now paying the price ... and it will get far worse.

America is gone and we deserve all we get.
