Just a quick note about people comparing modern events and issues to slavery.
Abortion can be compared to Slavery by more than one person
Sarah Palin Compares the debt to slavery
Sarah Palin believes Obama is returning the nation to slavery days
The Affordable Care Act is compared to Slavery
George Will compares the passage of The Affordable Care Act to The Runaway Slave Act
The Affordable Care Act is compared to The Fugitive Slave Law
Merriam Websters defines slavery as The Condition of one person being owned by another.
Does The Affordable Care Act meet this criteria? No
Does the national debt meet this criteria? No
Does abortion meet this criteria? No
This just shows how little these great minds understand something as horrible as slavery. It shows their lack of understanding on the impact slavery has had on this country. And, it weakens their argument. But then maybe their argument is so weak that out of desperation they try to invoke the horror that is slavery in order to dramatize their point.
There is nothing like slavery
Only slavery is like slavery
