Subject: Chuck Schumer's Marxist Propaganda at the inauguration
Gunther,
Chuck Schumer's address at the inauguration was filled with sickening Marxist ideology. Schumer urged Americans to "sacrifice" for "something greater than themselves."
First, there is NOTHING GREATER THAN YOURSELF. Your own life, your own liberty, your own property, and your own pursuit of happiness (I.e., your own HIGHEST VALUES - career - spouse - children) are your sacred Individual RIGHTS to preserve and protect from violation by criminals or governments.
Second, to "sacrifice" is an irrational and immoral behavior. To "sacrifice" is to place one of your lower values or non-values ABOVE one of your higher values. Feeding a stranger's children while your own children starve IS A SACRIFICE. It is also an irrational and immoral act.  However, studying hard night and day to learn your valued career is NOT a sacrifice, but rather the noble pursuit of your highest values.  To help a deserving man falling on hard times from your own abundance is NOT A SACRIFICE, but rather a completely moral act of benevolence and generosity.

Gunther – 

 

It took eight years for Obama to do it, but TODAY he’s finally given me hope.

 

And I can’t wait for the change!
