As it murders conscience, will abortion kill self-government?
Alan Keyes targets 'Deathocrats' for lulling Americans into support

As a black American, I cannot pretend to be surprised that many people who profess the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ nonetheless support the Deathocratic Party. Many black Americans, including members of my own family, have done so throughout my adult life. Like other so-called Democrats, black Americans pretend to see a valid trade-off between the murder of millions of innocent, helpless human beings and the good supposedly done by government programs assisting low-income families. All refuse to acknowledge the fact that, in effect, these programs have become a form of political slavery, keeping the urban poor in bondage to "Deathocracy" – i.e., the peculiar coalition of crooked politicians, bureaucrats, and criminal gangs that presently oppresses neighborhoods in more than a few of America's largest cities.

Forces presently fomenting mob action against the statues and other relics of dead 19th century enslavers have no qualms about promoting the deadlier form of bondage that masquerades as "democratic" socialism. A constitutional provision allowed 19th century American enslavers to continue the lawful importation of slaves into the United States until 1808. At President Jefferson's behest, any lawful U.S. participation in the international slave trade ended, on terms set forth in an act of Congress he signed into law in 1808. Thereafter, American slaveholders had a pecuniary interest in procreating the numbers of living, healthy people they held in bondage – for the good price they could fetch at auction.

Unlike the Southern enslaving Democrats who bought and sold my ancestors before the Civil War, Deathocrats in our day seek to reduce the human population – in the United States and throughout the world – by all available means. To be sure, they have an interest in increasing the voting population in the urban areas they hold in thrall. But instead of increasing the population of American citizens in the cities, they prefer to import people from abroad. That way they get people from countries used to languishing under oppressive, totalitarian dictatorships.

Elitists from both the major political parties are openly or tacitly promoting the transition to totalitarian dictatorship. To this end, they are slyly encouraging Americans to shift the aim of our self-government from its original aim of justice and the secure exercise of God-endowed right, to a new aim of radically selfish personal identity. They offer to secure our freedom to choose and assert this identity with abuses of government power – up to and including the mass murder of hapless human individuals whose continued existence interferes with our freedom to become whatever we choose to be.

Of course, no claim of transcendent right can justify this practice of wrongdoing in service to licentious freedom. Indeed, it bespeaks a surrender of natural conscience and humane feelings that is more suitable to a criminal gang than the citizen body of a lawfully self-governed republic. Right that cannot be maintained without extinguishing innocents is not right at all, but egregiously wrong. This common sense of right and wrong is what led Americans of good conscience to oppose slavery, even though the selfish aims of the enslavers mitigated against the wholesale slaughter of their innocent victims. Yet these days, the Deathocrats lure millions of Americans into supporting and engaging in the practice of abortion. For Planned Parenthood and the so-called "doctors" they pay to murder innocents, profit is certainly a selfish aim. But murder is, without any mitigation, the means of achieving it.

How do the minions and fellow-travelers of the Deathocracy claim some moral vantage point superior to the profiteering enslavers so many of them pretend to disdain? They not only purposely murder millions of helpless people; they also serve as weapons of mass destruction, laying waste the hearts and consciences of all the millions who deploy their services. This is not just a matter of individual destruction. For it delivers a potentially decisive blow against the sense of right and justice without which no people can be trusted to govern itself with good effect.

This morally crippling blow achieves the most important goal of the elitist faction's strategy for the dissolution of the people of the United States, and the democratic republic hitherto upheld by their proofs of good character. In their deeply depraved campaign to restore the tyranny of the powerful few (which America's enormous success seemed destined to thwart, once and for all) massive extinction of human offspring is just a means to extinguish the moral conscience and self-respect of "masses" they mean to reduce again to serfdom, peonage, and outright slavery.

To this end, the practice of abortion turns the hearts of human beings ensnared in it against the children most would otherwise welcome as the first belongings they may truly call their own. It plants and cultivates within them a seed of self-doubt, a doubt that impels them to wonder why a people willing to murder the emissaries of its future in cold blood should be trusted not to do the same to the society they comprise, as a whole – and are supposed to govern by their votes. That is just the state of mind in which they are most likely to be seduced into surrendering their responsibility to do so. How convenient!
