A Second Bill of Rights for America

The nascence of all of our American collectivist troubles began with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a 19th century man, implementing 19th century collectivist ideas on a nation that was founded by 18th century men of Enlightenment. It happened in the 20th century, on January 11, 1944. In the near seventy years since Roosevelt's speech, all the 19th century Marxist ideas he espoused have failed miserably resulting in the collectivist governments murdering more than 200 million of their own citizens.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Second Bill of Rights have shaped the beliefs of the American progressive movement towards domestic policy ever since. The rights that FDR cited are:
  • The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation; 
  • The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation; 
  • The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living; 
  • The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad; 
  • The right of every family to a decent home;
  • The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health; 
  • The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment; 
  • The right to a good education.
From Dear Liberal - Here's Why I Am So Hostile
Take a moment to ponder the real Bill of Rights that was bequeathed to us by the Founders James Madison and George Mason, both men of the Enlightenment. Their document guaranteed to us freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to petition the government, freedom to bear arms, freedom from illegal search and seizure, whilst taking no rights from our fellow citizens. The real Bill of Rights guarantees our real human rights as an unconditional possession, not something provided by the labor of others.

Contrast that to FDR's "Bill of Rights" which is really a "List of Demands" upon the worker bees of the nation, your fellow citizens. Roosevelt's "Second Bill of Rights" guarantees every citizen a job, food, clothing, recreational expenses, price fixing for farmers, businesses free of "unfair" competition and domination, a decent home, medical care, education, and protection from old age, sickness, accident and unemployment. Good Lord - What a List of Demands! Roosevelt's collectivist mind redefined basic human rights and required that these "new" basic human rights be paid for by working Americans, the 50% of Americans who pay taxes.
