“True Believer” of What?

Email Print

I am reading commentary about Ted Kennedy that he was a “true believer,” including this fawning piece from CNN.  Yet, what was it that he believed?  Ted Kennedy believed that the state should confiscate most of your income, and should give you second-rate “benefits” in return.  He believed that you as an individual had no right to resist attacks from criminal or the state (Is there a difference?), and that everyone should be forced to pay taxes for abortions and other things with which they disagree.  In other words, Ted Kennedy believed that the state should be considered omniscient and omnipotent, and anyone who resisted should be crushed.  And he is being lionized for those views.  How sick.  How evil.
