Meeting in the middle is what cause the US to move from a government of enumerated powers to one of enumerated liberties.
Protection of freedom is absolute. There is no middle. It is like telling the democrat party to meet in the middle regarding slavery: there was no middle, particularly for the slaves they kept.
The philosophy of the democrat party – their need justifies the seizure of the products of someone else’s life – is no different than it was when they were owning slaves, they are just using third parties and flowery language to attempt to justify it. And failing. It truly isn’t need, it is their whims or their desires.
The Democrat party today is the party of both victims and victimizers. Everyone is both a victim and victimizing someone else to try to get ahead.
Instead of free people, making free decisions it is the party of a dog-eat-dog philosophy where everyone’s life and property is held only at the whim of someone else.
Do you have a right to your own life or not? For centuries the Democrats and their conspirators have said no. Look at the slaveowners. Look at their advocacy for socialism, fascism and communism or other forms of authoritarianism?
Look at the regressive’s destruction of the constitutional protections over the last century. All to get to the point where people will vote themselves into socialism’s slavery.
“Your purpose, then, plainly stated, is that you will destroy the Government, unless you be allowed to construe and enforce the Constitution as you please, on all points in dispute between you and us. You will rule or ruin in all events.” Abraham Lincoln
It is the eternal struggle between these two principles — right and wrong — throughout the world. They are the two principles that have stood face to face from the beginning of time; and will ever continue to struggle. The one is the common right of humanity, and the other the divine right of kings. It is the same principle in whatever shape it develops itself. It is the same spirit that says, “You toil and work and earn bread, and I’ll eat it.” No matter in what shape it comes, whether from the mouth of a king who seeks to bestride the people of his own nation and live by the fruit of their labor, or from one race of men as an apology for enslaving another race, it is the same tyrannical principle.Abraham Lincoln, The Lincoln-Douglas Debates
