“Now, what the American people understand is that our great country was based on a simple principal, and that principle is fairness.” Bernie Sanders, New Hampshire, 2/9/16
We have read and reread the Constitution of the United States and the Declaration of Independence. Nowhere in the text of these founding documents did we find the word “fair.” So, what is Sanders really talking about? Was this nation founded upon “fairness?” If not, then upon what foundation was this nation founded?
Earlier this week, we published an essay demonstrating that those who call themselves democratic socialists are nothing more than actual socialists. Their beliefs are one and the same. If you missed it, read it here.
We planned to publish a new essay today defining and describing what socialism really is, but have decided to start elsewhere. As such, please be patient. We’ll get to socialism and other “isms” eventually.
For now, we have decided to start with the actual Constitution, to discuss the founding principals of this nation that have long-preserved our freedoms and rights.
It is imperative that we understand what has made the United States great and what has guaranteed our freedoms for more than two centuries.
And, please invite a friend to read these articles.
