ACORN "Political Thugs"

Stuart Varney is a bulldog here...bravo.

(I can't get the flash player link to work, so click here to see the video over at Fox News.)

I knew a guy in college who drank 'shroom tea. He made more sense than this idiot that Varney is interviewing.

As Varney points out, ACORN is occupying homes that are in foreclosure (that means the homeowner hasn't been paying their mortgage, for those of you who don't know it). They are preventing the authorities from evicting the deadbeat homeowner to get the home back. And now our tax dollars are going to be funneled to these deadbeats to bring their mortgages current.

What possible incentive do I have to pay my mortgage? I live up to the terms of my mortgage...I signed the papers, and that contract between us spells out what happens if I don't pay my mortgage. I have a moral (not to mention a legal) obligation to pay that mortgage. If I don't, I can't cry about the consequences. Now Obama is going to take my tax dollars and give them to these morons. I might as well stop paying my mortgage, for then I would get a tax refund in the form of money to pay my mortgage.

One of the most fundamental things that makes Americans free is the right to enter into contracts, and to have those contracts enforced in an unbiased way. Our courts make sure (well, most of the time) that both parties to an agreement live up to their side of that agreement. Private property and enforceable contracts are part of the backbone of this country. You would not have a house, car, HDTV, boat, private school for your kids, etc, if you couldn't contract for them and know that the other party had to live up to their end of the contract. You might not like paying 18% on your credit cards, but you signed the agreement. If you don't like it, stop using the card. Pretty simple, yet it's the bedrock that this country is built upon.

Now ACORN wants to interfere with your right to a contract. Make no mistake about it...if contracts aren't enforceable, how long do you think it will be before you won't be able to get a car loan?

Stop paying your mortgage and you'll get a tax refund and you'll get your house for free! Such a deal!
