According to Thomas Jefferson, “Governments are instituted among men, to keep order.” I have explained many times before that there are two classifications of law that Man must deal with.
The first and the most overlooked is Natural Law. Laws that falls into this class are laws that can’t be broken by men. Although we have tried. These are the physical laws of the universe. You know like gravity and thermal dynamics.
The second class is contractual law. These are so-called laws that are created by Men to control other Men. Any contract is voided once one or the other party chooses to no longer be bound by that contract. To keep this from happening, consequences must be enforced. Those who have been chosen by either force of natural selection or a just election are put in place to enforce the laws of Men.
Conversely Men do not need this enforcement if they are living in a state of universal morality that is balanced with the first class of law that we first talked about in this article.
The State gets too big too fast when the government is buying vote with promises of free stuff that would be bought by stolen money from the working class who do work.
When did Americans stop reading the Bible? Have people forgotten that Saint Paul said to the Thessalonians, “In fact, when we were with you, this is what we commanded you: “If anyone isn’t willing to work, he should not eat” (2 Thessalonians, 3:10)?
