Maybe you have not noticed it yet. But we Europeans live under a European Tyranny. Unfortunately the messenger doesn’t inform us who exactly is the Tyrant who wants us to live under oppression and in misery. (Digression: Me thinks it is the ECB.) But this particular messenger — The Tea Party Folks — most probable haven’t heard that there’s such a thing as the ECB and have a hard time to locate Europe on a map. But there’s one thing they learned about Europe while traveling the place via Fox News. A bunch of Socialists, Marxists, Communists and other freedom hating monsters are living there. Via Bloomberg Businessweek “Summer Camps Offer Adventures, Training, Politics”:
Tampa Liberty School, hosted by Tea Party affiliate group The 912 Project, teaches 8-to-12-year-olds “the principles of liberty, free markets, and limited government.” Jeff Lukens, 53, whose day job is at an auto auction firm, will run this year’s session. The first lesson will teach campers the difference between European tyranny and freedom in America: After walking into a room that’s “kind of dark and gray and austere … [and being made] to sit down, be quiet, and do what they’re told … we tell them, there’s this other place you can go to called the New World,” says Lukens. Once they’ve crossed an obstacle course representing the Atlantic, the campers arrive in America. “It’s colorful, it’s bright, it’s cheery—they get over there and we pop confetti in the air and it’s a party,” says Lukens. The kids later clean up the mess, so they know that “with freedom comes responsibility.” Other lessons teach campers about the gold standard and that “our rights come from God, not from government,” he says.
So in case a future generation reads this blog post in 30 years you can stop wondering why US Congress has abolished Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. And it is also no mystery anymore why you must carry Gold coins around. Finally you can also stop whining about people dying in the gutter because of no health care. It is a God given right to dye as a free man.
