Fort Monroe, Property Rights and Communism

“In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.” – Karl Marx, the Communist Manifesto

Most people at the Hampton Roads Convention Center were enthused to make Fort Monroe, Virginia a National Park, especially the Conservation Groups. An elderly lady demanded the federal government confiscate over two million acres of property surrounding National Parks to preserve them. The most disturbing comment came from a teenager. While describing his nature trip along the James River, he explained private property was the cause of the destruction of our beaches…the sound of freedom was slowly deflating from his future. One councilwoman provided three names John Mallory, Frank Baker and Sheppard Townsend for the youth to look up, she rather left out a vital lesson. Private property is actually the pillar of freedom; it allows us to make decisions without needing the authorization of someone else.

As it would be nice for Fort Monroe to become a National Park, it should not be done at the expense of confiscating private property. After reading Scott Rigell’s House Bill 2456 and Mark Warner and Jim Webb’s Senate Bill 1303, there are questions of whether property ownership is being infringed. Most of the maps did not have a north beach in Hampton and the bill referred to the map. So, one can only assume that lines are drawn but is private property being taken?

“Now what liberty can there be where property is taken without consent?” – Samuel Adams

While our city councils pursue their global goals at their constituents’ expense, the question is whether they respect our property rights. As they make decisions on the regional level and follow international direction, it’s sad to say that they do not.

One of the objectives of United Nations Agenda 21 is to eliminate private property. These UN practices are active within the Hampton Roads Region and across the nation. The citizens of this nation use to exercise “government run by the people,” but now our neighbors, who we elect, have taken the role of “governance of the people.” As we move toward a Global Community, the President has given an executive order to assist rural areas in their fundamental transition.

On June 9, 2011, he signed Executive Order 13575 that establishes “a council to better coordinate Federal programs and maximize the impact of Federal investment to promote economic prosperity and quality of life in our communities.” This Council consists of 25 Federal agencies to include the Department of Defense, Homeland Security and the Department of Education to name a few. Why would these agencies be needed in rural America? As sixteen percent of population is in rural America, the language used in this Executive Order is consistent with some used by Agenda 21. Its intentions are to place the populations within allowable regions. This is known as “The Wildlands Project.” Whether we are at this stage or not is beyond me, but the intentions is to restrict human activity to certain regions in the nation.

“Property must be secured, or liberty cannot exist.” – John Adams

Property rights is the foundation of freedom and without it, we are slaves. It allows people to make decisions about their own property; no need for a committee, paperwork or fees. Just do it. These rights do not stop at your property lines, they entail your businesses, your family and whatever other possessions you may have. Without private property and mainly property rights, liberty does not exist.

“The rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated” – James Madison, Speech at the Virginia Convention, 1829

As our neighbors who were elected as Mayors and city council have become masters of the soviets. We were taught the atrocities of communism, the bad things that it and fascism did to their people. Our children are taught to idolize Che Guevara and Mao Zedong and are not exposed to the evils of people who studied and practiced Karl Marx such as Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin, Vladmir Lenin, Benito Mussolini and even Adolf Hitler.

“The Utopian schemes of re-distribution of the wealth…are as visionary and impractical as those which vest all property in the Crown.” – Samuel Adams

If anyone wishes to discuss important slave history with our children, they should start with the importance of private property rights. Then our children, such as the young teenager who spoke at the Fort Monroe public forum, would truly understand the meaning of freedom. If our children do not understand that, they do not understand freedom. Once you no longer have these rights, freedom no longer exists because you have nowhere to go…except someone else’s property.

    Evil is attacking freedom and liberty on all levels, from every angle, in every area of life. There is to much for one Congress or Senate to have to deal with in just the four years that a good conservative President could possibly overturn. Much work is going to have to be done by our two Houses on their own. Anytime that anyone hears of some bill that liberals passed into law that destroys this nation alittle bit at a time, it must be brought up to the Houses, they must prepared to repeal and abolish it completely forever, and use that word, then the President must be informed of what the Houses are about to do so that he can be ready with his pen. He won’t have much time to meet with foreign dignitaries, or go visit some king because his time will be used up from morning ’til night signing the repeal of things such as these UN treaties and agreements, and over turning former Presidential directives he discovers needs to be undone. His staff can look these things up, find out what they’ve done, or could do under circumstances they apply to, and hand them over to the President to be thrown in the trash and set fire to. That is part of how the Democrats were ready with three thousand pages of a bill when they were trying to ram through ObamaCare. They had never thrown the old bills away after they were either dead, or were never taken up. They just kept them to be resurrected years later when they had a better administration that would be more willing to pass such a law. No, when we find these dispicable bills, laws this next time we need to destroy them so that no one will ever find the words again.
