July 4th: Dreams from our forefathers
By Linda Goudsmit
July 7, 2017

The birth of a country like the birth of a child is a wondrous thing. Some births are easy and some are fraught with complications but all are accompanied by the hopes and dreams of the parents.

The preamble to the United States Constitution declares the purposes, principles, and hopes for the future of the United States of America from our forefathers. It tells us what our forefathers dreamed for America:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Like many children who grow up determined to parent differently than their own parents, our forefathers were determined to created a "more perfect union." They intended to create a secure nation based on equality, justice, and upward mobility very different from the infrastructure of England's monarchy. Our forefathers' purpose was clear – to create a democratic society of the people, not a monarchy of the aristocracy.

Historical context is extremely important when examining social policy. Our forefathers fought for their independence from England 241 years ago when slavery was an immoral fact of life worldwide. Slavery did not exist in early hunter-gatherer societies because there was no need for a work force – families and tribes divided the work of hunting, gathering, and caring for the children among themselves. As societies grew and agrarian societies developed into trade societies the need for workers was created and the slave trade began.

A slave is defined as "a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them." Every ancient civilization had a slave trade. It was an evil and immoral element of social organization from its inception. Slaves were often the spoils of war. Conquering tribes or nations enslaved the defeated population and used the men for labor and the women for pleasure. The idea of owning another human being is anathema in contemporary Western society yet the slave trade continues to exist.

Slavery has many faces – it is not only a matter of race. In America, we focus on the black community and their history of enslavement. Blacks in America waited almost 100 years until January 1, 1863 when President Lincoln issued his Emancipation Proclamation declaring that all people held in slavery in the rebel states were free and that freed slaves were welcome to serve in the US army and navy. 100 years after that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were signed by President Lyndon Johnson and our forefathers' principles of justice and equality under the law came closer to achievement.

Women were enslaved in most societies around the world including America until the 20th century when women's suffrage finally secured their voting rights. Until then women and children were the property of their husbands – they were chattel without any individual rights or protections. Women did not receive the right to vote and acquire property in America until 1920 when the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified – women waited 144 years after the declaration of independence to be free. American democracy moved slowly but steadily forward toward a more perfect Union of freedom and equality for all American citizens until now.

Islamic countries and communities governed by sharia law continue to openly and unapologetically endorse human slavery. Sex slavery, child marriage, forced marriage, wives and children property of their husbands and fathers, and enslavement of infidels are all government sanctioned forms of human slavery practiced unapologetically in Islamic countries and communities. Saudi Arabia boasts that women have the right to vote. In fact, the meaningless elections for municipal councils in 2015 were the first elections in which Saudi women were permitted to vote, allowed to run for office, or be elected as politicians. Municipal councils have little power or authority in Saudi Arabia which is an absolute monarchy.

The Declaration of Independence shattered the yolk of English monarchical power and established American democracy in the United States. The Emancipation Proclamation, the Civil Rights Act, the Voters Rights Act, and Women's Suffrage shattered the yolk of slavery and emancipated women and blacks in the United States. All the freedoms fought for and won by courageous Americans pursuing the dreams from our forefathers to create a more perfect Union are being threatened today by the "resistance" movement of the radical left-wing Democratic Party. WHY?

The first question that must be answered is, "Why are the progressive Left leaders of the Democratic party ignoring the slavery and savagery codified in Islamic sharia law?"

Answer: Obama and his ongoing "resistance" movement of left-wing liberals in the Democratic Party are colluding with the media mogul globalists to foment social chaos in a deceitful effort to overthrow the duly elected government of President Donald Trump, destroy American democracy, and replace it with socialism. The useful idiots who participate in the "resistance" have not realized that socialism is yet another form of slavery. When there is no private property the government owns the fruits of your labor which means you are enslaved by the government.

Ayn Rand explained the concept this way:

"When you consider socialism, do not fool yourself about its nature. Remember that there is no such dichotomy as "human rights" versus "property rights." No human rights can exist without property rights. Since material goods are produced by the mind and effort of individual men, and are needed to sustain their lives, if the producer does not own the result of his effort, he does not own his life. To deny property rights means to turn men into property owned by the state. Whoever claims the "right" to "redistribute" the wealth produced by others is claiming the "right" to treat human beings as chattel."

This brings us to the second question that must be answered is, "Why is the Left so eager to allow illegals into the United States with open border policies and to protect illegal felons in sanctuary cities?"

The answer is always the same: to create divisiveness and social chaos.

This brings us to the third and final question that must be answered is, "Why would the Leftist leaders seek to foment divisiveness and social chaos?"

Answer: The Islamists and their savagery, barbarity, and enslavement are useful idiots who are being deliberately imported into America by Leftist leaders to create overwhelming social chaos. Obama's open-border policy is not a humanitarian effort it is the sinister strategy of a radical socialist who knows that social chaos is the requirement for seismic social change. Martial law (complete government control) will be imposed to restore order and then socialism (institutionalized complete government control) will follow.

Social chaos is the necessary condition for the imposition of socialism. Socialism is the necessary condition for the imposition of one-world government. One-world government is the new world order that the globalist elite intend to rule – it is a binary socio-political system of masters and slaves. One-world government is the goal and the underlying motive of the campaign to destroy America from within. American democracy is the single greatest existential threat to one-world government and President Donald Trump is its leader. If the globalist elite are successful in overthrowing the government of President Donald Trump then the dreams of our forefathers for American democracy and a more perfect Union will be dead after 241 years. The world will be returned to the dystopian existence of masters and slaves and the greatest experiment in human freedom will end.
