Happy Labor Day everyone. I hope that as we spend time today with our families and loved ones, we will all remember that Labor, the ability to do and the ability to hire, is truly a gift from God. Labor and property are the second fundamental right given to us by God, after the first right, that of life. A mans labor is truly his own and even the Supreme Court has ruled in the past that labor is in fact property. When a man exchanges his labor for something of equal value such as money, he is not earning that money, but instead he is participating in an equal exchange of previously owned items. To tax this activity is immoral and counter productive to the ends of encouraging economic activity.
As we celebrate Labor Day let us not forget how much work has been done to dismantle our beloved Republic, and therefore how much labor God laid out before us to do in the rebuilding of that Republic. So today be of good cheer for we have work to do and struggles to overcome that will last us for generations.
