Better off Dead

Biden recently said that paying taxes was patriotic. Sure, but this particularly convenient when you are asking someone ELSE to pay taxes. But what happens when the STATE has a vested financial interest in you being dead...suddenly suicide is patriotic.
Check this out.
This actually should not shock us and I'm telling you it is going to get far worse. People scoff at notions of trying to foster a "culture of life" but what is the alternative? Well, what you read the article. If the government, a secular and more and more a secularist entity, is the determiner of personhood then what should we expect but this and worse? Next up - as I've said before - abortion and euthanasia to fight global warming. Here in the states we are about to run up against the wall as the elderly age longer and they have had less and less children to help pay for their medicines and retirement.
A burden to society? Why the heck NOT kill them? After all we killed over 7 million babies in the womb since the Iraq war started...most of whom because they would a be a burden to their mother! And our weak kneed politicians fling around their feces about how "this is a complex issue."
In candid moments, I guarantee you that this talk by Warnock is not at all uncommon - I've heard it and worse. Think about it: because we apparently deemed her to no longer be human, we starved Terri Schaivo to death...something the ACLU would never allow us to do to a child murderer/rapist.
These life issues will be delivered to us with all manner of lofty nuance. It will come with soft-spoken concerns for the suffering of people who WANT to die and young mother's who cannot handle parenthood...but if we embrace these arguments we push ourselves further and further into a culture of DEATH. And sooner of later, Warnock will be completely mainstream. Wait and see.
