Just a short time ago, the definition of the word “obligation” basically meant that we were obligated to become decent and productive members of society. Our “reward” so to speak, for being “productive”, was that we were entitled to the “rewards” of our “productivity”.
Enter the liberals and their devious desire to “change” not only the meaning of once thoroughly understood words but the entire American landscape as well.
The liberals decided on their own that the “obligation” within American society was to “guarantee” some obscure “standard of living” regardless of the sloth of the recipient and they went about “changing” things. Other strange liberal “guarantees” sprang up in the most unusual of places. The liberals, as amazingly insightful as they are, managed to “uncover” a number of these guarantees within the Constitution where they had laid dormant for generations.. (For example, suddenly the world under the tutelage of the left, was discovering the “right” to kill an unborn child within the “right of privacy” and unfortunately, that was just the beginning..)
The liberal handout mentality, with its double-edged sword of enslavement and emasculation, took such things as welfare and magically transformed them into “entitlements”. The “obligation” thus shifted from the individual to the government. When this totalitarian transformation was complete, the liberals HAD to be there in order to guarantee the proper redistribution of “fairness”..
Under the liberal politburos, this “fairness” was only applicable to the denizens of the lowest sub-cultural orders. These siphons were callously advised by the liberals that they were the “victims” of some mystical societal oppression when in truth, they were intentionally being “oppressed” by the liberal leviathan.. The Democrats who used to “oppress” these “victims” through fire hoses and baseball bats sarcastically created this more “user friendly” type of “oppression”..
In fact, the “victims” were those who were being fleeced by the liberal establishment of the rightful rewards of their own accomplishments (which were based upon their own sense of “obligation” previously mentioned..) so that the liberals could then BUY the votes of the bottom feeders as long as these dullards agreed to remain manacled to the liberal mantra of failure..
If the liberal “base” did NOT have the ability to vote, the liberals wouldn’t care in the least for them and their alleged plight because the ONLY matter of importance to the left is the acquisition and retention of political power through any and all means necessary.. As proven since the application of the disingenuously named “Great Society”, when there are so many compliant and docile lemmings available, this acquisition and retention of power is not at all difficult.
The left will permanently underwrite you as long as you agree to disregard any internal rumblings of ambition or accomplishment.. (The “New Deal” tried, in its own socialist way and in its largest part, to get people working, “producing”. The “Great Society” was socialism created solely to reward those who were intent upon being a burden to those around them in perpetuity, period.) All that was expected of those sufficiently oppressed was their “consideration in the voting booth come election time..”
The liberals then took the “obligation” under their bizarre Bolshevik administrations away from the individual citizen and made it the “obligation” of the government. By making it a part of the government, they were making it an unavoidable burden to the productive so that the liberals could then “compassionately” (Remember the “liberal definitional inversion” theory. Liberal “compassion” ends up being anything but..) reward their chattel through their numerous and ever-expanding redistribution rackets.. By creating the “demand” of generations of addicted, obedient and manageable indentured servants, the liberals were creating a “need” for their own existence..
It should thus become our “obligation” now to place the liberal ethos upon the endangered species list..
