San Juan Capistrano homeowners Chuck and Stephanie Fromm were fined $300 for holding a Bible study in their own home and were told by officials that ongoing gatherings of three or more people require a conditional use permit. The Fromms were warned that they would be fined $500 per meeting if they continued to hold the Bible studies.
"We not only have the First Amendment of the Constitution on our side, but we also have the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000, which we at the Pacific Justice Institute have used effectively on many, many cases."
In order for the left to get your money, they must first undermine the rights you have with your property, articulating your beliefs and the fruit of your labour. Rights of the individual always get put behind the 'collective group'.
"These are uncertain times for the global
economy. These are challenging times
for our families. This is our plan to help.
This is our way forward, together.”
That's right, we move forward together. Your results don't matter to you, as much as they matter to Mr. McGuinty. He needs the success of the free market to drive his agenda of a 'everyone loves everyone, share the wealth Ontario'. Undermining our property rights, free speech and earnings is a basic way the left seeks to use slight of hand to build the economy.
And on that note, how are we doing Mr. McGuinty?
Need more taxpayer dollars and more then the 200 billion debt to peruse your agenda of togetherness?
Typically not a good idea to undermine capital and the free markets, Mr. McGuinty.
A warning for Captain Togetherness: if you execute your plan of government propped up economic growth, the economy will suffer. Be warned. If you tease and poke at the free market like you are proposing to do, she will leave us and go elsewhere...don't annoy her with your 'togetherness' talk: it will have the opposite impact you intend.
The two issues discussed are connected: we need to fundamentally understand our property rights and hold fast to our convictions of liberty. Standing on that podium, we declare that we own the fruit of our labour and no government can force me to give up my earnings for excessive 'togetherness-utopia' spending.
Enough is enough.
