The Humanity Party® (THumP®) calls upon the government to recognize that there are certain rights that are being denied to the people; that the current government does indeed disparage the right of the people to live.
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” “Or” is the conjunction that THumP® considers the most important part. The people reserve the right to define the rights that are most important to them.
Most honest politicians are not oblivious to the moral aspects of good government:
It was once said that the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.” —Hubert H. Humphrey
No right established by law should supersede the right to the basic necessities that support human life. No government should exist that does not prioritize the right to life as its number one purpose and protection.
American hypocrisy demands that an unborn fetus has the right to life. Yet when born into the world, the basic rights to support that life are withheld and removed once that fetus reaches adult maturity (according to society).
America has defined itself as a Christian nation based on its belief in the Bible and the stories of “Jesus” therein. Yet, ironically and hypocritically, this Christian nation fails to understand the words of their own Christ when he, according to their own beliefs, defined the parameters of a “righteous” person who will “inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world,” and a wicked person who “shall go away into everlasting punishment.”
The Christian parameters of righteousness vs. wickedness, according to their own accepted national faith, completely depend upon, nothing more or nothing less, than how the homeless, hungry, thirsty, sick, afflicted, stranger, and imprisoned are treated. If their needs are not provided for, then a nation is wicked. If their needs are provided for, then that nation is righteous. (See the Bible, New Testament, Matthew, chapter 25.)
THumP® has a plan to provide meat for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, a place of security for the stranger, health and mental care for the sick and afflicted, and value and help for those in prison. THumP® has no affiliation with any religion or faith. We are affiliated with our true humanity and dedicated to the support of human life.
