Scope of Government.

Either limit the scope of government or limit citizen liberty.

Scope of government has broadened so much that there is now little of the living of life that is not subject to regulation.

Vic Biorseth, Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Our Constitution is a quite short, succinct and easy-to-read document, as you can see in the American Constitution page. That one, brief document, along with its Bill of Rights, is the blueprint for the setup, organization, running and operating rules for the most powerful nation the world has ever seen, in all of world history. As a legal document, there is nothing complicated about it; indeed, it is very simple. If you are reading and understanding these words, then none of it is beyond your ability to read and comprehend.

Article I lays out for us the Legislative Process, describing our two Houses of Congress, their makeup, their members, their rules of election, service and operation, and their powers. Section 8 tells us what they are to do – a description of their official responsibilities.

Article II lays out for us the Executive Process, describing our President and Vice President, their offices, their rules of election, service an operation, and their powers. Sections 2 and 3 tell us what they are to do – a description of their official responsibilities.

Article III lays out for us the Judicial Process, describing our Supreme Court and inferior courts, their jurisdiction and their responsibilities.

The Bill of Rights establishes limitations on government protecting certain American citizen rights, which are not granted by government, but by God, as described in the American founding document, the Declaration of Independence. Most specifically, these rights involve freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, petition of government and gun ownership. These are rights we already had and they were not granted by government; rather, government is prohibited from interfering with them or hindering them.

Note that there is nothing in the Constitution regarding any increase in government control in any area, or of limiting citizen liberty, or of collectivization or redistribution of anything. Those things were born in another document titled The Communist Manifesto and they are directly opposed to the makeup, organization and operating rules of the United States of America.

Nor is there anything about government attacking such problems as illiteracy, childhood obesity, healthy eating habits, smoking, producing carbon, etc. Nor is there anything about government requiring private enterprises to produce products such as cars with special airbags, or built-in “crushability”, or any particular fuel-mileage requirements, etc.

Today we have not only high ranking bureaucrats, but our President, instructing us on the proper way to cough or sneeze, while pushing another false “emergency” regarding a completely bogus influenza “pandemic”. You could be written up for sneezing into your cupped hand instead of your sleeve, if you are seen doing it. This stuff happens at state and local levels, too. In some places, government requires the local mom and pop diner to put the calories-per-serving beside all the specials listed on the black board, or on all menus, if they have printed menus. There is no end to it.

None of this is the proper business of government.

We have no need for any Surgeon General of the United States, or of any bureaucracy beneath that title or function. Medicine is not the business of government. If it isn’t in the Constitution, what is its justification for existence? Pork? Political payoff? Reward for services rendered? Opportunity to grow the government and increase government reach?

Our government has no business “donating” our money to support such abominations as the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA.) If art is worth a dollar, someone will pay that dollar, as fair market value. If art – or blasphemy – is not worth a dollar, why should the tax payers be forced to pay that dollar? Art can stand on its own whenever and wherever there is a market for it. If an artist cannot sell a Madonna with feces on it, or a crucifix in a jar of urine, then he richly deserves the title Starving Artist. If he cannot sell his work in the free and open marketplace, the tax payers should not be his safety net. There is nothing special about art. Lots of real artists are quite rich. Fakes are not worthy to be recipients of any involuntary redistribution of other people’s money.

The wonderful thing about America, as founded, is the existence of a strictly private sphere of activity beyond the reach of government. We call it opportunity. So long as we do not defraud or cheat, we are free to act in this sphere completely free from any control or any interference from government. This stems from the natural right to private property. This basic, fundamental human right is implicit within the Commandment “Thou shalt not steal” and it guarantees the right of an individual to ownership of something. If he owns it, he has certain rights over it, and no one can take it away or damage it.

Walter Williams, the professor/economist/philosopher of note, has pointed out that some or most of these intrusions into this private sphere of citizen activity as violations of the human right to private property. He illustrated the point by talking about smokers and smoking. My body is my property; so is my health. If I choose to smoke, that is my choice, and no one else’s choice.

The notion that smokers hurt health insurance costs for everyone is bogus. Insurance companies have no problem denying claims for high risk customers. If you die sky diving, of scuba diving, or hang-gliding, guess what – your life insurance is going to deny your claim. It would be just as easy for a health insurance company to deny a lung cancer claim of a smoker. Similarly, it would be just as easy for a car insurance company to deny a claim of someone who did not use a seat belt and was thrown from a car and injured or killed.

At a higher level, my house is my property. If I want to allow smoking in my house, that is not the business of government. If I own a restaurant, and I want to allow smoking in my restaurant, that is not the business of government. If I own a business, and I want to allow my workers and customers to smoke, that is not the business of government. The private sphere of private citizen activity free from government control or interference is shrinking down to nothing.

Now, I am not a smoker, at least not for the last 35 years or so, and I have now hit the point where cigarette smoke bothers me. However, Walter Williams is quite correct. It is astounding how American smokers seem to be just rolling over with every new wave of restrictions on where and when they can smoke, and on ridiculously higher and higher taxes imposed on cigarettes in hopes of driving usage down, but in the real world, feeding cross-county and cross-state black markets in cigarettes.

A thing such as tobacco, or liquor, or drugs, should either be legal, or illegal. If a substance or product is legal, then there should be no restrictions on it and no special usage or punitive taxes associated with it. The only restrictions on alcohol and tobacco that I am aware of involve age of majority. I wonder why we even have a police agency titled ATF, or Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Alcohol is legal, tobacco is legal and firearms are legal. So why does the ATF exist? To check IDs at the retail counter?

We need to get government back to doing what it is Constituted to do. If they would pay more attention to the budget, that would be nice. I really believe that what Rush and Sean say is quite correct: we now have professional politicians who make their living and ensure their job security by spending other people’s money. And they do that by growing government, not shrinking it, which, again, is more in tune with the Communist Manifesto than the American Constitution.

God help us.

What about customers who have serious problems such as asthma? Where are they supposed to go if everyone can smoke everywhere?

From: Vic Biorseth


To those restaurants or other commercial facilities that ban smoking. You are always free to take your business elsewhere. There is a market for smoking customers, and there is a market for non-smoking customers, and a free market will always satisfy those needs.

As Prof. Williams said, you are free to avoid smoke filled restaurants, and smokers are free to support them. Workers are free to shop for smoke free working environments, and others are free to seek employment where they can smoke. So long as tobacco is not illegal and you may not be imprisoned or otherwise punished for use or possession, why should there be laws on the books forcing all businesses to not allow smoking on their premises? Customers and workers and clients can vote with their dollars, and their available labor.

Argument: The Good, The Bad and The Pointless. On the Reasoned Argument.  (In the absence of reason, there is no valid argument.)

The Arguments pro and con under girding the Catholic American Thinker. Foundational arguments pro and con under girding Western culture and the Judeo-Christian ethos.

Artificial Contraception: Tool of Materialism with which to destroy Monotheism.

Acceptance of Artificial Contraception marked the single most destructive turning point in the history of Western Culture, marking the end of moral norms, foretelling tolerance of anything at all.

Refuting the Origin Of Species pseudo-scientific theory of Charles Darwin.
If Darwin’s Origin Of Species is a true Scientific Theory then there must be a preponderance of evidences supporting it. Show us any of it.

Refuting the Repressed Memory Syndrome scientistic theory of Freudianism.
If Freudianism’s Repressed Memory Syndrome is a true Scientific Theory then there must be a preponderance of evidences supporting it. Show us any of it.

Refuting Marxism and sub-theories of Socialism and Communism, as Scientism.
If Marxism represents any sort of true Scientific Theory then there must be a preponderance of evidences supporting it. Show us any of it.

Refuting Separation of Church and State as a Constitutional Principle.
If Seperation of Church and State cannot be found in our Constitution, what makes it a Constituional Principle? Nothing. It is NOT a Constitutional Principle.

Argument opposing Sharia law as brutal, oppressive and murderous.
Opposing Sharia Law means opposing brutal domination, wife beating, child abuse and even bloody murder.

Our argument supporting the Rule of Subsidiarity, practicality and common sense.
The moral and organizational Rule of Subsidiarity is crucial to the rights of man and essential for freedom.

The Sexual Revolution: Sexual Freedom, or enslavement and degradation?
The Sexual Revolution was supposed to free us, rather than enslave us, and uplift us, rather than degrade us. It was a lie from the beginning; it degraded whole cultures and attacked human dignity.

Our argument against Earmarks: the infamous Line Items of Pork Barrel Politics.
Legislative Earmarks feed corruption through skimming, lobbyist paybacks, hidden political agendas and more, by providing a huge political Pork Barrel feeding frenzy.

You cannot legislate morality is the false claim of the immoral.
We MUST legislate morality, as long as the legislature is representative of the people. Otherwise, what is legislated reflects the whim of the dictator(s) of the moment.

The religion as a private matter argument that cannot stand the light of day.
Claiming one’s religion as a private matter is a neutral thing, unless the one with the claim is in authority over us, as an official or a “representative” politician.

Our arguments against un-Constitutional Gun Control laws, rules and regulations.
The British feared that, absent "gun control", the militias in the colonies could become as "regulated" and fearsome as the British "Regulars" themselves.

Renouncing the great Communist Lie in its older, current and newer forms.
The whole “Communist Dream” is a lie; the history of “Communist Revolution” is a lie; virtually everything about Communism is just one big elaborate flagrant categorical lie.

Our argument supporting the Fair Tax as a sensible and practical Tax Revolution.
Fair Tax presents the possibility of a real, popular, voter-supported, tax payer supported, grass-roots supported Revolution in America, and a radical change for the better.

Argument against Public Education, which is, in fact, Government Indoctrination.
Public Education equals State Indoctrination, pure and simple. Education is beyond the scope of government and not what our government is constituted to do.

Argument against National Health Care, which is, in fact, Socialized Medicine.
National Heath Care equals Socialized Medicine, pure and simple. Medical Practice is beyond the scope of government and not what our government is constituted to do.

Values Versus Ethos: If we are not a Christian people then what the hell are we?
Obama set up the values versus ethos argument. He declared that we are not a Christian nation, but a nation of citizens with “values”. What are these values and where did they come from?

Being pro choice or pro woman's right to choose equals being pro abortion.
Saying you are pro choice, or pro right to choose, is saying you are pro abortion. Period. Pro choice equals pro abortion.

Warning all bourgeoisie: Obama will destroy the middle class.
Take fair warning all bourgeoisie, i.e., members of our vast middle class: the Marxists despise you and intend to conquer you once and for all.

The English national language of the United States of America.
There is no good argument against an English national language for America. What other language should we all speak here?

We argue against income minimums and caps, and for a free and private market.
Income minimums and caps are Marxism’s “moral” bait to gain popular support for Socialism on the path to typical Marxist absolute dictatorship.

Our argument against unions and for a more open and free marketplace.
Arguing against unions and other free market interventions is seeking greater excellence in market goods, services, employees and employers, through free and open competition.

The Thinking Catholic responses to questions re perpetual virginity of Mary.
From the "brothers of the Lord" to "The Davinci Code" to the word "until" in Matt. 1:24-25, the ancient Hebrew cultural notion of Professed Perpetual Virginity is doomed to be repeatedly challenged.

The contentious issue of Infallibility of Papal and Church teaching.
On matters of faith and morals, and matters relating to Divine Revelation, our central Catholic trust is in the Infallibility of the Holy Ghost, Peter, and The Church, acting together.

Our argument against fads, fashions, popular trends and herd instinct.
If speaking against fads makes me square, un-cool or un-hip, then so be it. All fads are, in microcosm, expressions of rebellion against tradition.

What does normalized, mainstreamed, open homosexuality say about us as a people?
Our argument against open homosexuality is an argument for the continuance of Western Civilization, and the Western Culture Ethos and the normative family.

The Marxism of Obama: Marching America into another Socialist dictatorship.
Vic Biorseth describes the self-documented Marxism of Obama which is still not widely recognized among the American citizenry. Obama “change” is Socialism, pure and simple.

Catholic Marriage Annulment: Is it merely the Catholic version of Easy Divorce?
Ecclesial law regarding the Catholic marriage annulment process has not changed, yet the numbers of annulments granted in America have rocketed. Why?

Opposeing affirmative action / equal opportunity programs as racist. Affirmative action (racial preference) requires racial exclusion, which is, definitively, racism.

Against diversity for the sake of diversity. Why do Marxists always seek more?
Our argument against diversity for the sake of diversity, which weakens and ultimately replaces ideology and ethos.

Against political moderation: America was not founded by indecisive moral wimps.
Political Moderation provides neither leadership nor opposition, but merely a moral drag that historically prolongs moral debates and ends up hurting morality.

The Death Penalty: Is our justice system too corrupt to be trusted with it?
The death penalty is too strong a sentence when serious questions exist re the truthfulness of police, prosecutors, defense attorneys and even forensic scientists.

Constitutional America: The argument for a return to basic rule of law. The arguments for a return to the Constitutional America intended by the Fathers and expected by the People through their Representative Government.

The Population Problem: A Real Problem, or a typical Scientistic Myth?
If England has a higher population density than China, and Hong Kong's is higher than Bangladesh, then maybe the real problems are not related to any over - population problem.

Definition of Marxism: Total control of means of production, including workers.
The definition of Marxism describes the social, economic and governmental philosophy of Karl Marx, co-author of the Communist Manifesto.

Anti-American Politics, pure and simple, describe Democrat Party strategy.
Anti-American Politics are practiced by all Leftists. Marxism, at any level, is antithetical to the very idea of America. To be Marxist is to be an anti-American.

The Godless Left leads the young and naive to their utopian Hell.
For an honest comparison of the effects on youth, we need to look to the history of the Godless Left versus the Religious Right.

My anti anti-American arguments are attacks on falsehoods, in support of truth.
American Communists hide their true identity and disguise themselves as anti anti-Communists. Using their playbook, I hereby identify myself as an anti anti-American.

I must oppose the pope on globalism, but not on faith and morals.
Recent comments of the pope on globalism, calling for a world political authority, is absolutely the last thing the world needs.

Deliverance From Evil goes to the heart of the hot political debate in America.
Americans increasingly pray and work for deliverance from evil, as they slowly wake up to a threat that is not merely political in nature.

Background history of the recent Catholic reformation (revolution?) in liturgy.
Reform of the Liturgy began with good intentions toward minor changes, yet almost permanently trashed Latin, and Chant, and, etc., etc., etc.

Our definition of pro American goes considerably deeper than the dictionary.  Anyone, anywhere, may be a patriot. Definition of pro American: one who loves and adheres to the American Constitution.

Our definition of anti American goes considerably deeper than the dictionary.
Anyone, anywhere, may oppose nationalism or national pride. Definition of anti American: one who ignores or opposes the American Constitution.

Islam is the enemy; the non-Islamic world just dosen't know it yet.
I keep saying that Islam is the enemy here, and you keep not wanting to hear it. But it's true.

A submission of the “The Church is rotten to the core” argument and its basis.
If indeed the church is rotten to the core then all is lost; unless, of course, the statement is untrue.

Our argument opposing Libertarianism as an amoral conservative vote-splitter.
Opposing Libertarianism may seem counter-intuitive until you realize that it’s just another form of moral relativism.

Why is this American Christian nation not called a Christian nation?
This American Christian nation is oddly referred to as something other than a Christian nation. Why?

Argument Against the Anti-American UN: Why do we support such an antagonist?
The staunchly anti-American UN has a major goal involving world governance, and America is in the way of that effort.

Argument to Repeal Amendment XVI, the Income Tax Amendment.
Repeal Amendment XVI and the very idea of progressively taxing income.

Argument to Repeal Amendment XVII and the Politicizing of the Senate.
We need to repeal Amendment XVII and restore our Senate to its original status.

Toward a return to argumentation; the lost art of reasoned verbal combat. A return to argumentation requires a return to critical thinking. Is it too late for Western man?

Secularism is clearly "the enemy" in the culture war; so, what, exactly, is it? Secularism is an aggressive and very pro-active form of atheism, in that it not only disbelieves, but it actively attacks belief itself, on all fronts.
