"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Hitler? Pol Pot? Stalin? America?

Redirecting the focus is an effective way to mislead the people.

Take abortion-the debate is not about the baby to be born, but instead the debate was redirected.  Now the debate is totally about a woman's right to choose what happens to her body and little, if any attention is given to the baby.  Effective?  Absolutely!  I wonder in the annals of history,  will the stance America has taken on abortion  outshine anything else she ever accomplished?  Let me explain why using a few of the 20th century's most brutal regimes and the total number of dead they left in their quake.

Pol Pot-Cambodia             1.7 to 2.5 million
Hitler-Germany               10 -12 million
Stalin-USSR                6 million
Kim II Sung-North Korea       1.7 million
Mao Ze Dong-China and Tibet  49-78 million

Totals:              68.4 million -100.2  million (diverse countries, over a period of 72 years)(source)

American Abortion since 1973 approximately 54 million.
3,222 babies a day
1,212,530 babies a year and if we carry this out to 72 years America will abort 87,298,160 babies.

Did you note that this number is on the high end of the estimate for those that the world considered brutal regimes?

Yet, we in America consider ourselves to be the beacon in the world.  We proudly stand with the Emma Lazarus's poem that is graven on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty and most know this part

 "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" 

 And yet, our nation cannot see the huddled masses of babes yearning to breathe free?  We ignore the wretched refuse(the aborted fetuses) and instead do not lift the lamp for our weakest, yet those with the most potential?   Kind of ironic that the Statue of Liberty is an emblem of of true rights for a woman yet this woman that stands to proudly on our shore is overshadowed by the rights granted to women in America that extinguish the very right to life of the inhabitant of her womb.

This is very sad considering that the contents of the womb when born on US soil (or Territory, or of American parents abroad) becomes an American citizen at birth.  Too bad  we pretend to suggest that this American only began life at birth and have allowed this to be amended to our Constitution

When a spotted owl's freedom is more important that an unborn human's, you know the world is indeed, a messed up place. I saw an article on murderers...they stop beating hearts, that's why they go to jail. Did you know a baby's heart starts to beat in the womb at 18 days?
