Toastmasters Thursday! Kim is joined, in studio, by Terri Goon, President of Liberty Toastmasters-North. First, Kim, Producer Steve and Terri look at some headlines. We all know that it is never compassionate to take someone’s property and give it to another. Except for government. Really? The infrastructure bill to be voted on today in the House would take money via taxation and government induced inflation to “give” to another. Government does not create anything. We must stand together and hold the line and resist the radical, activist Democrat agenda. A mileage tax for cars also means that you will be tracked as to where you are going. Jen Psaki, White House press secretary, displays her ignorance of running a business when she states that the White House thinks it is “unfair and absurd” if businesses raise prices in response to corporate tax hikes due to Biden and Democrat policies.
Liberty Toastmasters members respond to the following questions through the lens of our Founding Fathers: Where do individual rights come from? Are they inherent in our humanity? Do they come from the government? Or are they endowed by our Creator? Analytical remarks include: words are important and we must understand that principles do not change whereas ideology and values fluctuate and change per one’s perspective; our human experience is joined with our Creator; “we are endowed by our Creator,” and if we didn’t come from our Creator we would have no rights and the “law of the jungle would prevail;” the government is limited and should protect our due process; people need to rediscover how principles came into being by reading the Constitution and; “theft of the spirit” through fear and coercion has been the emphasis of COVID-19 restrictions instituted by the government. Terri emphasizes that we must go back to our “Divine Spark.” Our rights come from God.
