The Constitution
I read and listened to this speech today, given in 1991 by Rex E Lee on the Constitution of the United States.
Comparing his thoughts to where we are today with social justice forces one to wake up. Wherever we see “social justice” on a political or religious website, if you look for the links on the page and follow them back, they will take you straight to socialism, marxism, communism pages where they train you to be a social revolutionary. Social Justice is code for redistribution of wealth, and has nothing to do with actually caring for one another. It destroys personal empathy to let the government do it through taxes.

I like the social cushions we have in Canada of health, education and welfare. But it seems we are a bit stifled because of them. IF, and I mean that as a giant IF, the stock market crashed and our money became worthless, those social cushions would disappear. We may find ourselves standing naked and alone. Who would you turn to?

I cling to the principles outlined in the Constitution of the United States, and to Canada, although I can not remember studying the Canadian constitution in school. I lived in the USA long enough to see the difference between a Canadian and an American as it relates to patriotism.
