Letter about Col Stan Gudmundson commentary

Posted in All Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

Democracy never dies. It will exist because it is innate in all human beings. democracy is a characteristic that attacked by a number of philosophies like Communism, Capitalism, Religions, etc.

There are those who claim laws, rules, and regulations destroy freedom, especially libertarians. Yet they cannot name one government, organization, religion, etc. that doesn’t have a constitution which is nothing more than laws, rules, and regulations by which to rule by.

Free enterprise is not capitalism. One has to look at China to see that Capitalism and Communism destroys individual freedoms.

We have seen how Communism destroys individual freedoms. We neglect to see how Capitalism destroys free enterprise by monopolising when unfethered by proper laws, rules and regulation. The wisdom of Ted Roosevelt concerning monopolies and protecting our national landscape is in tune with our American Constitution. Our Supreme Court declaring business companies as people is one for the constitutional law books. It is difficult for me to believe that no religious leader stood up and yelled foul. If anything is biblical six, six, six (666); this is it. A court of educated men and women, Christians, declaring non-entity a person. I would if they will determine that a company bankrupcy is an abortion!!

I am not long for this world. I have learned that when a government doesn’t rule for the greater good it is inviting revolution.
