Protestors demand Rep. Lewis __ no cuts to free government Medicaid cheese

See Protesters gather for rally outside home of Rep. Jason Lewis

August 10th, 2017

”Protesters who have been trying to get 2nd Congressional District Rep. Jason Lewis’s attention got it last night.

A group rallied outside his Woodbury home and a video of their demonstration was later posted to YouTube. In the video, protesters left a large letter for Lewis demanding he oppose cuts to Medicaid.

“Healthcare is a human right,” the group chanted in his neighborhood, as shown in the YouTube video.”



Well, there you have it folks. These protestors believe it is their “human right” to have government force used to confiscate the earned wages of their neighbor, and then use that money to finance these protestor’s personal economic needs.

And what did one of our forefathers say with regard to this very idea?

"Under a just and equal Government, every individual is entitled to protection in the enjoyment of the whole product of his labor, except such portion of it as is necessary to enable Government to protect the rest; this is given only in consideration of the protection offered. In every bounty, exclusive right, or monopoly, Government violates the stipulation on her part; for, by such a regulation, the product of one man's labor is transferred to the use and enjoyment of another. The exercise of such a right on the part of Government can be justified on no other principle, than that the whole product of the labor or every individual is the real property of Government, and may be distributed among the several parts of the community by government discretion; such a supposition would directly involve the idea, that every individual in the community is merely a slave and bondsman to Government, who, although he may labor, is not to expect protection in the product of his labor. An authority given to any Government to exercise such a principle, would lead to a complete system of tyranny." __ See Representative Giles, speaking before Congress February 3rd, 1792

So, the fact of the matter is, these free government cheese protestors support the very foundation of tyranny, and have no objection to government force being used to engage in what amounts to robbery!

"To lay with one hand the power of the government on the property of the citizen and with the other to bestow upon favored individuals, to aid private enterprises and build up private fortunes is none the less a robbery because it is done under forms of law and called taxation." ____ Savings and Loan Association v. Topeka,(1875).

Robbery is taking something of value by threat of force.

Paying taxes is like paying for a bag of groceries, you really don't want to pay, but running out of the store risks the state employing force against you.
That's the same thing that keeps you from raping little kids, or murdering people.

That's why I support law enforcement, and they need to be paid.

American citizens taxed to finance illegal entrants economic needs

.

Keep in mind many of those protestors are illegal entrants who thrive on free government cheese!


See: Cashing in: Illegal immigrants get $1,261 more welfare than American families, $5,692 vs. $4,431

”Illegal immigrant households receive an average of $5,692 in federal welfare benefits every year, far more than the average "native" American household, at $4,431, according to a new report on the cost of immigration released Monday.”


JWK



American citizens are sick and tired of being made into tax-slaves to finance a maternity ward for the poverty stricken populations of other countries who invade America’s borders to give birth.

We in California have recently learned where $1.3 Billion of annual taxpayer dollars are going in Los Angeles alone. Welfare assistance to illegal aliens. The "free-cheese" illegal aliens are draining the state dry and the Liberal government here is protecting, and promoting this larceny.

Actually it's not going to the illegals themselves, unless they are committing fraud. It IS however going to their children. Who when born here are CITIZENS and therefore eligible for government assistance.

This is WHY we need to change the immigration law. Extend the exception for diplomats to ANYONE that has not applied for permanent residence. One sentence added to the existing immigration law would make the children born to illegals also illegal.

Income tax is theft.

If you do not pay income tax men in costumes w/ guns will kidnap you and stuff you in a cage.

The end

So? pay your taxes.

Better yet, avoid taxes, by taking a vow of poverty and living in a monastery.

No one is forcing you to pay taxes, just like no one is forcing you to pay the grocery store.
If you choose to get a bag of groceries, or to engage in activity that incurs a tax liability, that's your choice.

It would require a constitutional amendment, the political cost is too high to make that feasible at this moment.

From what I gather, it is going to illegal aliens and this states government is not stopping it. Anyone born here to illegal alien parents are not legal citizens. According to a study by the Migration Policy Institute, the parents are receiving both welfare and food-stamps.

Why would we need a Constitutional amendment when citizenship is clearly defined in the 14th amendment? If you were not born here under the jurisdiction of this country you are not a legal citizen.
