In questioning and discussing the exercise of rights, freedoms, actions or control over ourselves & property, should we be asking "should we allow" or "should we prevent"?
Liberty & freedom means one is free to choose wisely or foolishly & deal w/consequences. Slaves & Serfs do what they are told & stand at mercy of those who have final say in what one is permitted or forbidden to do.
The reality and the ideal are quite different in this case.
Reality:what should be prevented
Ideal:what should be allowed
However, it's still more complex, especially when it comes to confusing personal and private property.
what personal and private property is confusing?
It should be a mix of both
I like the Creed's maxim.
"Nothing is true; everything is permitted."
The Bible states everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial.
you believe both questions are the same?
"Should we prevent" assumes the government already allows us to exercise all of our rights.
"Should we allow" assumes the government already prevents us from exercising our rights.
We have to approach with both questions because the government...
...thinks it allows but knows it prevents.
We should be asking "should we prevent" -- but there's an awful lot we need to be preventing that we're completely ignoring today. A HUGE amount of things.
Allow -- as in should we allow Obama to make any more obscene decisions?
Everything should be allowed without even questioning if it should be, unless there is a very good reason to prevent it.
Always err on the side of freedom.
Everything should be allowed until there is reason to percent.
off topic, what's going on for tonight's SoHOA?
No OnAir tonight. Guess I should put out that PSA..
yes and ask people to share it so it reaches wide.
We should be asking both questions.
The constitution has laws in place "to prevent". Obviously this precious piece of paper means nothing to the current administration who are tearing it up piece by piece with a pen and phone.
As this kind of talk has gone on since the beginning of this administration it lack credibility.
Since the beginning of every administration. Cookie, I'm still waiting for your list of actual impeachable offenses.
Well, the pen and phone have proven to be more competent and useful then our current house.
kermie- is breaking the law that Obama himself signed in regards to prisoner swapping an impeacable offense?
Since every president has done that and worse, no, I don't think so. I'm not saying he should have done it. I don't even like Obama. I'm just saying let's have an ounce of honesty and perspective.
Good question. I guess to answer this one must decide how they get rights in the first place..
The constitution is very clear. We have our rights simply by being alive.
