A is A.
The law of identity. A thing cannot wholly encompass two opposing philosophies.
A society is not FREE when at a moments notice of fear it turns into a police state, where armed cops lacking even a basic four-year criminal justice degree can point a gun at your chest with the legal “benefit of the doubt” should violence against you occur.
A society is not JUST if the takers get to vote to increase the theft of their brothers sweat, blood, and income. Where many pay over a third of their livelihood to an ungrateful nation. When the financial governing body targets political opponents of the president.
A society is not RIGHTEOUS when it claims to be peace-loving and God fearing, yet continues to police the world, overthrow governments, and use our service men and women’s lives as pawns for political points. When it has “kill” lists, uses drones to kill both enemies and civilians (including children) alike. When it covers up the death of an ambassador so as not to offend the host nation.
A man is not a LEADER when he continuously claims to know nothing about the legitimate scandals of illegality surrounding his administration (IRS , Benghazi, Spying on the press). When he dodges questions using lawyerly verbiage and tactics instead of letting his yes’ be yes’ and his no’s be no’s. When he abuses the office he holds for financial gain, becoming a multi-millionaire at the expense of the down-trodden he claims to represent. When he forces an unconstitutional health care bill via politically bullying that will neither care for our health, nor be able to be implemented – all to trick the nation to become a single-payer system.
We are not worthy to be free Americans when we dismiss the lies and deceit because “all politicians” lie – and let it carry on.

“Whatever you choose to consider, be it an object, an attribute or an action, the law of identity remains the same. A leaf cannot be a stone at the same time, it cannot be all red and all green at the same time, it cannot freeze and burn at the same time. A is A. Or, if you wish it stated in simpler language: You cannot have your cake and eat it, too.” | Atlas Shrugged
