America's form of capitalism (outsourcing jobs to the lowest bidder, paying CEO's whatever they want, crappy minimum wage standard) doesn't seem to be working very well.
<<Depends on which end of the stick you are holding.>>
And that often depends upon which side of the tracks your are born on.
As Lawyers say, "You can get all the justice that you can afford to pay for."
Its working perfectly., but everybody forgot that without govt intervening on behalf of voters endgame is one co left standing all workers enslaved to one huge corporate master. We know its subset which is too big to fail. And when too big to fail mEans corporations arE in chargE of congrEss wE suffEr and bEcomE just likE thE chinEsE and Indians. Serfs in our own country. The end of middle class by having our money be made worthless so the former middle class makes as much in buying power as the Chinese in the Indians.
There is nothing diversionary. You are saying there are absolute rights that came into being without a source. You also make the statement that these rights will be respected. That is bull. Freedom is not Free. Without a constitution to protect your right, you have none. A lot of men have died to protect that constitution and the government that allows you to have rights. Many people in this country have been denied personal security, deprived of personal liberty, and private property without due process.
Wait until the fascists (bankers and corporatists) are in full control. It will be like back in the 30 when the corporate goons terrorized the workers families. Already bankers are foreclosing on people’s homes without a mortgage. If they cannot afford a lawyer then they just lose everything.
No rights exist that you cannot defend. The constitution and government allows you the right if you can afford a lawyer to defend your rights in court.
Tell you imaginary theory to the blacks before the 13 Amendment or the fellows who drafet in a war. No right exist with the force to guarantee them. The government protects and guarantees rights. Without a government might is right.
Well said, Moses! It is too bad that those who rule over us from the DC and various state capitals see most rights, these days, as privileges. The privilege, for example, to remain on your property only so long as you can pay your property taxes (a difficult task in NJ these days).
