Progressives will always go for your money

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Eighty years ago, FDR outlawed the “hoarding” of gold with Executive Order 6102, essentially making it illegal to posses gold bullion or gold coins. Today, Glenn sees several stories that point to the possibility of something similar happening today. For example, Illinois’s proposed Precious Metal Purchasing Act would require every transaction of gold and silver to be registered with the state. Cyprus saw the government dipping into people’s bank accounts and confiscating personal wealth. China is just one country moving away from the American dollar. But will Americans stand up against the attack on private property?

“Progressives will always go for your money and FDR proved it and Cyprus is proving it now. Illinois and even this President are proving it,” Glenn said. “Are we that desensitized to government corruption that we aren’t even batting an eye at these moves – or have we moved into the final phase of the normalcy bias?”

Glenn said people need to remember that they have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. He noted that they also have a right to private property – like gold. But Americans also have a responsibility to work and create, to be prepared to care for people ourselves, and a responsibility to defend.

“It’s not rights versus [responsibility], it’s rights and responsibilities,” he said.

He added that if you believe these rights and responsibilities come from God, they are immovable and government cannot interfere. However, the government clearly believes the rights come from them and they have launched an attack on several of those inherent rights. He noted attacks on Christians, gun rights, and on personal property to support his argument that progressives always go for personal property.

“I have a feeling we are headed for a monarchy because we have forgotten the principles of maximum liberty and maximum personal responsibility,” Glenn said.

He encouraged viewers to stand firm for their rights and responsibilities, especially the second amendment.

    The progressives regard all wealth and goods as their rightful property.

    And we are headed for worse than a monarchy, we are headed for a communist dictatorship under Obama.

        Break out those Obama phones and call someone who actually gives a flying crap about what you think.

          Lol. No such thing as an Obama phone. Do you need me to hold your hand and look that up for you, too?

            I am sure you can find a left winged propaganda site to prove your point but sad thing is you don’t have a brain of your own and can’t see how full of crap they truly are. I can find web sites that call Obama a gay Muslim alien lizard from Mars does that make that true as well? What Google it because everything on the internet must be true.

    It’s a well-known fact that red states spend more federal tax money than they pay, and blue states pay far more than they spend. It’s the right wing, republican conservatives who are a drain on the country and who use up taxpayer money for their own needs because their too fat or lazy to get jobs.

    “We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share! These loopholes sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying 10 percent of his salary – and that’s crazy.”

    You probably think that’s Obama speaking now…But now, that quote is from 1985, and the man saying it was none other than President Ronald Wilson Reagan.

      I’m certain there are plenty of dead beat wealthy people not paying any taxes. Those that aren’t required to do so, don’t. Guess who they are? There are even some that take social security who shouldn’t. And guess what?…. Many are socialist dumpthecraps!
      When a person doesn’t make a living in wages but live off the interest of their wealth, They don’t pay income tax. You see, Bloomers doesn’t pay more than he has to; Or Buffett. They make donations to charities doing research on the mating habits of the Peruvian iguanas for the purpose of write-offs….unlike you and I, We Don’t have that luxury.

    The average American alone can’t fight these demons. If every person in entertainment, Not just Hollywood but all sports figures, all TV @ radio execs, Writers……anyone interested in saving our Republic, if they all stood up to the government we would see change. Unfortunately, The greed, pride in themselves and self-interest, stops these people from coming forward and demanding enough is enough.

    What they all don’t realize is that in the end, It will affect them as well and when least expected. By then, it will be too late for everyone except the demons. Hitler and his minions were demons.
