Contrary to the email you’ve received to date from various other members of our great Tea Party, my wife and I are both educated, well-informed university graduates, (me; Oral Roberts University Law School, she; Liberty University Law School).
As attorneys, and students of the Constitution of these United States, we can both vouchsafe that there is nothing in it that says “citizens shall receive free healthcare”, or “an education”, nor is there anything in said document that says that “the government shall regulate food safety”, and, the last time I checked the Constitution (yesterday evening in bed after bedtime prayers), I saw nothing, not one single word which stated that “there should be Federal Laws governing minimum wage”, or “child labor”, or “Medicare”, and/or “environmental protection”. Nor is there one single solitary word stating that the government should protect the safety of our food. Our founding fathers, in their divine wisdom, never once mentioned any of these over reaching programs which insult our intelligence. Any one who can’t remove a few rodent hairs from their tuna by themselves is either blind – or an idiot.
None of these items are mentioned in our Original Constitution as drawn up by some very smart men in 1787. And to top it all off, as our very own Rick Perry says in his must-read book “Fed Up”, there is the greatest “illegal Ponzi Scheme” of them all, Social Security, which as Perry says, “We have been forced to accept for more than 70 years!”
My good wife also agrees with me that women have entirely too much freedom in this country, and much too large a say in its running. And, except for Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann, should stay mainly in the kitchen and the nursery. (I do like to kid my good lady though about how she is a real good kisser in the bedroom.)
Also, neither my good wife nor I see anything in the original Constitution that says gays should have the same rights as everyone else. This is a joke but we are not laughing. All these programs that I have mentioned are nothing more than dangerous “Socialist” ideas which all vigilant patriotic people must, and should, guard against, lest they destroy our beloved country. We don’t need them, and we will repeal them when Mitt Romney – and whoever his running mate is – is elected.
So please, please vote, the quality of our lives depends on it.
