If you’ve been with me for longer than 10 minutes, then you already realize I’m what you would call an Anti-Socialist.
While I have vast and varied views, first and foremost I stand in opposition to all forms of Socialist thought. You can call it whatever you want; Socialism, Liberalism, Leftist, Progressive, Fascist, Communist, Democrat, No Labels, Crony Capitalist, RINO, John McCain… or whatever new names they come up with to keep you confused.
Why do I oppose Socialism? Why do I oppose a political theory that promotes Elitists exercising force over all those they deem inferior? Why do I oppose an Ideology that has resulted in the greatest destruction to the common good, and ultimately the loss of life, in the history of the world?
I am a Free-Market Capitalist.
But what apparently sets me apart is I know what that means, which is more than I can said for the majority of our elected officials… and certainly more than our electorate.
(If you would like to join me in actually KNOWING what a Free-Market Capitalist is instead of allowing Leftists to tell you what they want you to think it is… here’s a good start: Wealth of Nations, Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal, The Road to Serfdom, Freedom to Choose, The Romantic Manifesto, The Constitution of Liberty, The Age of Reason, The Law, Conflict of Visions… and the list can go on. Come join us… it is rare air to breathe indeed.)
I will share with you, the people being demonized by the press are the people you must listen to carefully. (Actually listen to them… not whatever sound bite John Stewart or Bill Mahr decide to let you hear, followed by a studio audience of the above mentioned know nothings yucking it up and a laugh track from the fifties.)
The folks you will be told are Mean, Evil, Stupid and In the Way of your Happiness are the very individuals who, most likely, have the best interest of our amazing country at heart. And, they are the few deserving an honest, unedited, un-editorialized hearing of why they stand in opposition of more Socialism.
But let me get you started:
Socialism gets you Detroit.
Socialism gets you Mexico.
Socialism gets you Domestic Spying.
Socialism gets you incredibly horrible public schools.
Socialism gets you Unions who make promises to their members they know they can’t honor.
Socialism put’s your medical records out there for all to see.
Socialism gets you expensive, crappy health care.
Socialism gets you high taxes.
Socialism gets you high unemployment.
Socialism gets you Crony business deals.
Socialism gets a quadrupling of the money supply devaluing everything you’ve worked so hard to save.
Socialism spends your money with no consideration of reason or result, because it believes it owns the money… not you.
Socialism gets you National Debt so large you cannot possibly conceive it. You literally can’t count that high… before you die of old age.
Socialism gets you racial hatred because without it, it dies.
Socialism gets you a bigger and bigger gap between the rich and poor, because it relies on that too.
Socialism puts self-anointed Elitist A-holes in power and keeps them there… forever.
Socialism is Force.
So the very least MY representatives can do IS NOT GET ALONG WITH SOCIALISTS. AT ALL… EVER.
The very least MY representatives can do is say NO in the face of bigger government and more spending… or should I SAY WASTING MY MONEY.
The VERY LEAST my representatives can do IS STAND IN OPPOSITION to everything… every single thing… the Socialists want to do.
And, if they DO NOTHING ELSE… I will consider them to be doing a great job.
If they really want to impress me, then start taking apart 100 years of Socialist schemes which have not only stood in the way of this country being greater than it is, but has set it back on every level. Doubt me? Do you think the founding fathers would have asked the public to tolerate Domestic Spying after fighting a War in order to establish a new type of Government designed to protect the Individual, Their Freedom, Liberty and Property? (There were plenty of “Terrorists” back then too.)
So I expect that 20% of the Republican Party who are about to be positioned as the worst people in the world… will do the right thing.
I expect them to be the Party of No!
NO! NO! NO!
It is the least they can do. When I say “the least”, I mean the LEAST.

My suggestion: anyone who disagrees with this post should have a two-year sabbatical in Venezuela (look at it as kind of a Mormon Mission). If they haven’t starved to death in those two years, they’ll get the idea.

Oddly enough, Al, Socialists Never seem to get the idea. They always end up trying it again… and again..

Unfortunately, no one wants to give a little. I hear what you are saying, but when big corporations seem to be tied to politicians (I’m going to make a sweeping generalization here and say Republicans, typically is what is projected through the media) and those corporations want to swing everything in their favor so they can make more money, it is the 99% that pays the price. People think they are getting the short end of the stick, so we end up with people screaming for regulation in every industry, which then bleeds into other areas of our society – education, health care, food production. Everyone want their piece of the pie they feel is being taken from them by the 1%. I think what we are lacking on all sides is common sense and an inability to look into the future (in a common sense sort of way). Everyone is too damned hard headed I think. I do see a movement though, towards more self reliance, especially in the “Indie” sub culture.
BTW – I am still reading “Liberal Fascism”, but I end up putting down for days at a time. I am enjoying it and it really resonates with me.

Pout, I will not disagree with anything you’re pointing out… but I will offer you that what you disdain is Fascism. I don’t care if they call themselves Republican or not.
Regulation is simply a way of controlling an industry without owning it…
Sweetheart deals are conducted by those who court, and those who wield government power to destroy. These are Fascists.
The Republicans you identify, and every Democrat are exactly the problem.
The 20% of the Republicans I’m speaking of are not the ones who do this… and if they do, they will be removed from my “I like you” list.
