What belongs to who



The Democratic National Convention's message to you:
“Government is the only thing we all belong to.”
That controlling idea is absolutely wrong because
A mere thing has no right to own any of us.
It only has duties as its assigned privilege,
Limited by what we elected to establish.
Even your citizenship you could refuse,
Although that is an option few would use.
A thing once set up belongs to the creator;
True authority does not flip over and under.
Natural law guides every true human right
For the good of every person in God's sight.
Any and all can choose to whether to belong.
Free will gives liberal consequences when wrong.
