In his inaugural speech, President Obama spoke of duty and the price and rewards of citizenship, both contrary to the principles enshrined in the Declaration of Independence.

Duty is an unchosen obligation – a free man chooses his responsibilities.

An individual owns his own life – it does not belong to the state. The only obligation of a free man is to respect the equal rights of others – he does not have to pay a price to be allowed to live.

Job Losses: Dishonest Diagnosis, Deadly Prescriptions

It is devastating when a breadwinner loses his job, or when there are no jobs for jobseekers. Yet, politicians, judges, the media, and voters unremittingly bash job-creators.

The most prolific job-eradicator is the government. The destruction of jobs and their creators is due to serfdom made possible by unreason, envy, power-lust, and the criminalization of the value enshrined in the Declaration of Independence: the freedom of action in the pursuit of individual self-interests.

For more than a century, job-creators, i.e. businessmen, have been slaves. Power-lusters, looters, and moochers have rendered them fair game to every vilification, extortion, and rights-infringement by dishonestly portraying them as callous evil crooks.

Job-creators are widely denounced as exploiters of consumers, employees, investors, competitors, and the public. It is dishonestly or stupidly blanked out that businessmen with no political pull cannot impose their products or services on anyone. Only the government has the power to coerce.

Job-creators are widely denounced as materialistic and greedy. It is irrationally blanked out that they must earn profits in order to survive, and that big profits mean more jobs and also more money in the coffers of the kings (i.e. congressmen, senators, and the president) and the royalty (i.e. recipients of coercive-favor or coercive-welfare).

The only savior of jobs and their creators is freedom. Unleash the job creators!

But power-lusters, looters, and moochers will not relinquish their coercive power over businessmen. Although many job-creators have gone out of business or have been jailed and banned from creating more jobs (e.g. Mr. Mike Milken, the creator of 62 million jobs), the job-eradicators irrationally believe there will always be job-creators to bash.

If you care about jobs:

1. Advocate capitalism: the complete separation of state and economics
2. Champion reason
3. Value businessmen who do not want the government to coerce anyone in their behalf.

There is bipartisan support of serfdom and job-eradication in the government. Democrats are for socialism and the Republican Party is not for capitalism. Republicans strongly support bashing job-creators with regulations like the antitrust laws. The Republican Party is not for freedom. It is not pro-choice, the cornerstone of liberty. It dishonestly describes itself as pro-life. Since it blanks out the life of the pregnant human being, since it championss destroying the life of an actual human being, most of the time: a young girl, and since it advocates force -- forcing a female human being go through a lifetime paying for a mistake -- the Republican Party is certainly not pro-life. It is paving the way towards the worst scourge of mankind: theocracy.

A corrupt government has favors to sell. Unwilling to relinquish this goldmine, it cannot grasp that what rights-abiding producers and consumers do is none of the government’s business, that the rights-abiding market must be absolutely free for the economy to survive. Freedom categorically ends lobbying and favor-seeking because it ends the politicians’ power to offer extorted property and their own souls for sale in the name of the poor and the middle class and in the interest of the public. Serfdom is not in the interest of rights-abiding people.

Serfdom, e.g. businessmen-bashing, neutron-bombs jobs. The honest prescription to the loss of millions of jobs is freedom. Unleash capitalism and the heroic job creators!

My letter to:

Declaration for Socialism

President Obama said that government deficit spending stimulates the economy. This is the dishonest version of ‘spread extorted wealth around’. Deficit spending is wealth confiscation, wealth created by productive slaves. Much of it, if not all, will be borne by yet-to-be-born slave-producers. Right to life means the freedom not to be burdened with other people’s debts or costs of living. Mr. Obama is no rights-respecter.

“It is absolutely true that we can't depend on government alone to create jobs or economic growth," President Obama said. "But at this particular moment, with the private sector so weakened by this recession, the federal government is the only entity left with the resources to jolt our economy back into life. It is only government that can break the vicious cycle where lost jobs lead to people spending less money which leads to even more layoffs."

Since only the government has the power to coerce, Mr. Obama’s solution to the ailing economy is: more coercive power – more enslavement.

Tragically, the alternative offered by the Republican Party, a strong advocate of oppressive laws like antitrust, is a path towards theocracy.

Recessions are caused by serfdom. The cure is freedom. The solution to the loss of jobs is capitalism: complete separation of state and economics, coercion-free existence. Unleash the job creators!
