The Problem With the Entitlement Attitude in One Video

This is why our Republic was established that only land owners were able to vote. If you did not pay taxes, you were not entitled to representation. Civil War Reconstruction and 13th Amendment ended that sanity. Now we have those who think they are entitled. Now we have a Democracy instead of a Republic. AND there is a huge and very important difference. A Democracy will survive only until it's citizens ( notice I did not say people?) realize that they can vote for themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. We are no longer a "free people". Sovereigns are people. Citizens are subjects as in England of old. Ben Franklin described Americans as "sovereign Kings" to the aristocracy of England. We own land (mouths hung open.)

And for those of you who will insist that it is the 14th Amendment that gives everyone the right to vote, you are correct. But it was the 13th as it was rewritten and forced on the Confederate states to rejoin the Union that set the stage for the 14th Amendment and it's declaration of the end of the sovereign and the proclamation of the Citizen and the end of the Republic and the establishment of the Democracy. The States were taken from the people and they would become powerless and meaningless in the years to some. They were incorporated and put UNDER the federal government. Check Dunn % Bradstreet listings. Our federal and state governments are all corporations. They deal with each other and you in a way that is not of the Old Republic.

We are not and have not been "free" for many, many years. But only the lawyers knew.

It takes a pay for other people's "free" stuff."
