A Parable For Representative Dan Branch


The Libertarians gathered on Harry Hines Boulevard, each with a declaration in his heart proclaiming "We are the friend of tax payers, families, business owners, laborers and the foreigner residing in this land.  We understand what is necessary so that each individual can be his own master without revoking the natural rights of his fellow man."

Some who gathered with them but whose hearts were hard, believing in protecting incumbents, rule by bureaucrats and big hair, were shills attempting to promote the incumbent by criticizing a certain candidate nominee, saying,
"Behold, he is a gluttonous man and a drunkard,  or so I've been told by a friend of a friend.  Let us support another, who is called RINO but is actually the prototypical Republican who desires to reign serve for as long as the money is good. We promise that the incumbent will act differently in the future because he's a firm believer in pragmatism over principle and has for four terms been voting with the wealthy and blessed."

And THE CROWD ROARED WITH LAUGHTER at this silly suggestion saying "Get thee behind us Republicans, for we have chosen to proclaim release to the captives, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.  You lack one thing: a decent respect to the nature of mankind. 
Divest yourselves of the few teachings provided by the government schools and come with us to Liberty."

 And when Mr. and Mrs. Peanut heard this, they were exceedingly sorrowful: for they had great wealth which they had obtained by using legislative power to......

Funnel the people's resources towards themselves.
Eliminate competing businesses.
Destroy jobs to curry favor with others.
Harm the people's health with an illusion of safety.
Create business monopolies to stifle commerce.
Aid in the destruction of the environment.
Encourage aggressive banking in order to create and benefit from economic cycles.
Foment the ignorance of the masses by providing faulty educational resources.
Prevent the poor from aiding themselves through business creation.
Allowing Texans to die in the Mexican Drug War by refusing to remain neutral.
Convince themselves that the people are stupid and need the wisdom of the legislature not only for jurisprudence but for natural reasoning.
