Your Opinion: Response to Garber on unalienable rights

Dear Editor:

It will never cease to amaze me how Mr. Garber is an obvious carrier of water for every liberal socialist Democrat talking point regardless of how twisted the thought process and purpose is.

It’s amazing that Garber’s letter published Oct. 29, the purpose of which, I feel, is to belittle the phrase “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” which is listed among our “unalienable rights of man” included as a part of the Declaration of Independence.

Rather he picks out one word in the Preamble to the Constitution that is only a brief introductory statement as to the Constitution’s intent. By Garber’s viewpoint, I suppose it’s okay for our government to use one word in the Preamble to the Constitution as the justification for its socialistic, wealth redistribution policies Mr. Obama is cramming down our throats.

How does our government’s policies fit with our unalienable rights of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?”

On life, abortion is supported and promoted by government funding and assassinations are now sanctioned and even touted by our Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. On liberty and the pursuit of happiness, our government takes by force the fruits of our labor for the purpose of wealth redistribution and stifles one’s right to work and to obtain a world-class education by total support of and payoffs by unions. Our government forces by regulation, limits on our rights in property ownership, use of our property, freedom of religion, medical decisions, and so many other ways too numerous to list.

It’s just a shame that so many people in our great nation have no clue of how our “unalienable rights” have been diminished and often eliminated by the policies of this and previous administrations. Furthermore, if Mr. Obama’s current attempts to govern by fiat bypassing Congress is allowed to stand, we can write off our republic as it will become just another third world country with a dictator for a president and a rubber stamp for a Congress. How many “unalienable rights” will we have then?

In summary, our unalienable rights have been trashed by our government’s policies instituted by the left to promote exactly what Garber is trying to promote by his ridiculous attempts to justify it by one word “welfare” in the Preamble to the Constitution.
