The Default State of economics…

Many years and countless hours of studying Socialist countries has presented me with two absolute and demonstrable facts.
First, Socialism never works no matter how much your local Socialist wants or wishes it too.  Or for that matter, tells themselves it does.
Second, Free Market Capitalism is the default state of economics.

Without fail, once established and entrenched, a socialized economy gives birth to a separate and “unequal” system of trade.

A system of trade that is not controlled by the state. It has many names such a black, grey, underground and illegal… but those in charge never call it “free” which is exactly what it is.  (In Russia there was a simple rule everyone lived by… if you see a line get in it.  They knew that whatever was at the other end, whether they wanted it or not, could be traded for something they did want.)

The Socialists have attempted every imaginable idea to stop Capitalism in its tracks but  have succeeded only in slowing it down and creating distortions which they then blame on the very free market they distorted.

They stare dumbfounded at a system of trade that does not require their genius, planning or input, to be successful.

So, Throughout history the Free Market has ruled unmatched in it’s success and durability as the premier economic system.
(An aside: I’ve encountered a school of liberalism (a poorly educated one) that has labeled Free Market trade as “Smithian Capitalism”. I would remind these Elitist Know Nothings that Smith was simply an observer and recorded what had been evident for millennia. Just because he was the first to organize it on paper does not make him the architect of voluntary trade.)
Free trade has flourished under monarchies and Marxism alike.

It cannot be stopped… but that seems to be one of the tenets of our present day, home-grown Socialists. There is an ongoing effort to slow Capitalism down with policy issues like global warming which then lead to ideas like cap-and-trade etc. Ironically it is the resistance from the rest of the socialized world which stands in the way of these ill-founded ideas… the Communist Chinese understand the value of free market trade which is why Hong Kong has been left alone.  But they also recognize the inability to control a population enjoying a Free-Market, which is why they have not officially adopted the economic system for China proper.
But the point is, when the superiority of Free Market Capitalism is recognized even by those who wish to see it go away, you have to ask yourself why are we still fighting with these same types of people at home?
I have and will continue to offer it is about Power and Control… it is about a mindset that see themselves so superior to you that the concept of not making your decisions for you is unthinkable. In their minds, It is about keeping you from always making the wrong choice because you’re too stupid to know better.
We finally have a single country, in the United States of America, founded on the beneficial evidence of  individual rights, voluntary trade and property rights.  And the Left can’t leave it alone.

I’m tired of placating these people and their oppressive ideas coated with a candy glaze of “fairness”.  Simply being born in a country doesn’t make it “yours”. If we are not racists then we should surely not be “Geographists” either. We should organize ourselves according to ideas on  Individual Freedom and Liberty.  Those who do not believe in how this country was founded need only find a country where their ideas fit in.

Socialists already own most of the planet… how is that working out for them?  Surely the EU could use the brilliance of our modern day Left to help them put their Socialist Utopia back in order.

Ain’t got No Sugar.

(For David… regarding the idea that Socialism, referencing his question of my sanity on Trump’s China Tariffs, requires Capitalism to survive.  While the current topic involves raw materials the concept is the same.  Crappy Communist/Socialist countries require us, and our productivity, to exist.  They are parasitic.  This originally posted in Feb. 2012)

Given the latest comments by European Leaders at the G20 conference regarding their current difficulties having originated in the U.S. and President Obama’s granting amnesty to illegal aliens  with accolades from the Mexican President (because it is a huge subsidy to Mexico through the flow of US Dollars south), I thought it was worth revisiting.

It has been fascinating to watch as Europe melts down.

It illustrates a theory I’ve had for many years which is that socialists survive at the mercy of capitalists in the name of stability. I started thinking about this in the early nineties,  Clinton had just handed, yes handed, Mexico 5 billion dollars.  That was back when 5 billion could buy you something nice.  It was done under the auspices of fighting the war on drugs.  But what it really did was prop up a socialist state.  Who wants a revolution so close to home… right? I don’t mean to pick on Clinton because Reagan and Bush have done it too.

Reagan’s granting amnesty to 13 million illegal immigrants was another way of subsidizing Mexico as it kept the flow of U.S. Dollars heading south into their economy.  (We could see this again…)  George W. did it by making it illegal to purchase prescription medication from Canada.  If that had been made legal it would have been tantamount to declaring war on Canada because it would have destroyed their health system by preventing them from dictating prices they would pay to the drug companies.  To put it in the simplest terms, they get away with dictating prices because you pay more here and subsidize the cost for them.  Feel good about that? We have seen this type of socialist subsidizing for years across every administration.  It is primarily through our military… “You guys in trouble financially?”,  “Let’s have joint maneuvers, or how about we move some more troops in for training exercises…”.  All that means is U.S. Dollars going in to the their not-so-self-sufficient Socialist Paradise.

We have also seen this played out when military contracts are steered to foreign countries for no apparent benefit.  The product isn’t better, but darn it they need the help.  (Bare in mind, I am a capitalist… it is my duty to buy the best product for me at the lowest price.  I have no issue with overseas manufacturing.  Our lack of manufacturing says more about us than them.  That’s for another time.) Well, now things have changed…  we ain’t got no money.

Look at the panic and finger-pointing when the engine of Capitalism, slowly poisoned by Socialists, isn’t healthy enough to ride in and save the Socialist Dream.

If I sound merciless, it’s because I am.  As far as I’m concerned Socialism has been living on borrowed time.  (And it has been our own socialists lending it to them.)  To steal a quote; “The chickenssss have come hoooome to roooost!” Now big daddy ain’t got no sugar…. and you’re on your own.

(An aside:  When are we going to have emergency hearings on “home-grown Socialism”?  Does Homeland Security know about this?  Where’s the Socialist Watch List?  The Socialist No-Fly roster?  Can’t we profile these people?  The destruction to this country and its citizens is profound. Someone should alert the press.)


Is Trump Serious?!

This must also be what the Chinese are thinking right now.
If Trump is genuine regarding Tariffs on Steel and Aluminum coming from outside the United States it must be considered Economic War.
The debilitating effects of Tariffs are well documented following Smoot-Hawley.

I am guilty of under estimating the negotiating skill of this man… and I must remind myself that he is a graduate of Wharton School of Business.  I must remind myself that he Knows where this will go.

So let’s assume this is the opening shot across the bow of an international trade war.

The White House is desperately trying to keep the focus of proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum on the increased cost of goods which will be directly passed to the consumers.  (This is also how corporate taxes work… but that’s for another day.)  The Maison Blanc is currently sending Peter Navarro out to sell the tariffs with talking points implying there will be ‘only a penny increase on the cost of a six-pack of beer’ and ‘only $45 to the cost of a new car’… I sh*t you not.  Navarro knows better, too.

Why do I find this an amazing point in time? Because once you read a bit about the Smoot-Hawley Tariffs (linked above) we imposed with only the best of intentions during the 30’s and the resulting consequence of extending the duration of the Great Depression you quickly realize it’s not the direct impact which hurts the most.

It’s the Indirect Impact.

It’s the Retaliation.

It so happens that we American’s have had our productivity and living standards vastly increased by our ability to access inexpensive goods from… China.

Chew on that for a second.

Now think about the fact that China is a poisonous concept based in Communism/Socialism that exploits its population as life is cheap under such a horrid Governing Theory.  It is also an open secret that China must… must… create a quarter of a million new jobs every month or they risk a full-out pitchfork rebellion… not just the condemnation of a pathetically partisan Socialist Press as we endure here in The United States.

Which of us can weather  the economic impact we both know will result?

This is nothing short of War.

I’m not sure it’s not time… but I’m not sure it is.


Force

An interesting question came up yesterday.

During a conversation with an associate I was asked to define Socialism.  And, then explain why I think it’s bad.

My response was, “Force.”.

The issue is not that Socialism is difficult to define but rather that so many people demonstrate the mindset through their actions while calling themselves various other things.  Socialists intentionally try to keep you, and themselves, confused… if they didn’t, you would see them for what they are.

It became clear during this conversation that a simple rule would be useful, because the left changes their names with regularity and impunity. The Socialists figured out long ago when people understand what they really stand for, those same people don’t like them. The solution was to keep calling themselves something different… often.

The evolution of names adds up to a long list, from stealing the term “Liberal” to using words like Progressive. You’ll find them labeling themselves Democrats, Moderates, Social Democrats, Republicans and even, hilariously, “No Labels”.  I prefer “Statists” because it lumps them all together… it’s easier for me as I have few brain cells remaining.

It becomes humorous when you think about it… how disliked must you be to have so many names?  Well, criminals do this everyday.  Count the times you’ve watched the news and the police are looking for a guy with fifteen different “AKA’s”?  Criminals, and Liberals, understand that a name follows you around and gets in the way of doing bad things.  Can’t have that.

So how do we identify these people?
The first question you should always ask yourself is… does this person advocate force to be used upon U.S. Citizens in order to achieve their desired goal?

An easy example of the above is:

Is the government forcing me to buy… a bible, a first edition of Audacity of Hope or health insurance?  If so, the person advocating the force is a Socialist.  It doesn’t matter what they call themselves.

And, the law used to force you to do so is Socialist in nature and therefore extra-constitutional.  (OK Lefties – Car insurance does not apply here as you are not forced to buy a car… and even if you choose to, as long as it resides on your private property (say a ranch) you are not forced to have insurance for it.)

If you’re still not sure, then the second question is; Does this person desire to use this force to “nudge” you to the ‘right’ decision, in other words quicker than you might have arrived there on your own…  This is done because the Leftist wielding the force already knows (believes) their answer is the right one and you’re too inept (Stupid) to make the correct decision on your own.

Some historic examples of this are skyrocketing gas prices forced upon us through Federal taxes, and a refusal to utilize our own natural resources, so we can get those cars that run on algae which we have all been dreaming about.  Or, forcing banks to lend you money even though you don’t have a job and you have a history of not paying your bills… this way you can have a house BEFORE you can afford it subsequently causing a GLOBAL financial meltdown.  (Thank you again Barney Frank and Chris Dodd.)

It doesn’t matter what the consequences are, because these people are Brilliant and full of only the best intentions… like forcing people to buy crappy fluorescent light bulbs from a company that donates millions of dollars to their campaign coffers.  Thank God we have such smart folks to take care of us stupid people…

It really is that simple, and this “force” rule can be applied hundreds of times a day. Now that you realize how this works, you’ll be amazed on how it changes the way you see the world. You will also be amazed at the change in how you view people you previously thought you agreed with.

So instead of allowing yourself to succumb to the intentionally confusing and overwhelming number of names and supposed “good intentions” the Left hides behind, you now have an easy way to identify them and their behaviors immediately and clearly even through their denials.  When applied, this rule will identify those Socialists on both sides of the aisle.

In contrast, Free-Market Capitalism requires no force.  None.  All it requires is you making the decision you think is best for you.  Rugged Individualism takes into account that we are all in this together, but it allows YOU to determine if coming together as a group towards a goal is the right thing for you to do… it does not allow for some other person to force you to ‘come together’ and accomplish a goal you disagree with but they think is super cool.

Make no mistake… there is a war going on.  It’s a battle between two very different governing theories… two very different Ideologies.

One is Collectivist in nature.  It’s a number of ideas that sound nice when said aloud but have a very long, sad history of oppression, poverty, death, destruction and failure.  It’s called Democratic Socialism. It’s Force.  The entirety of the Democrat Party, and many in the Republican Party promote this ideology through their actions while denying it to your face.  They work “around” the U.S. Constitution because it is anti-socialist by design.  They call it a “living, breathing document” or “outdated”.  Of course they do, it’s in the way.

The other theory is Enlightened and what this country was founded on.  It’s Liberty and Freedom of the Individual to choose.  It’s a Federal Government Limited by a Constitution.  It’s Free-Market Capitalism that protects not just the Individual, but the Economic health of all of us… together.  There are only a few politicians promoting this ideology but their numbers are increasing as the citizens begin to actively pay attention.  With the Education of the population in regard to these two theories the voters find their way.  Sadly, the contrast is no longer being taught in our Government School System and must be sought out.  But you are seeking it out… to the dismay of the Left.

What should be understood is these two ideologies are mutually exclusive.  Compromise has no place here.  The fact that we have tried to compromise ( link to: Bipartisanshitt) over the last 110-years is exactly what has brought us to the fiscal cliff.  We have strayed very far in deed from our original intent.

It’s time to admit it, double back, and find the right path before it’s too late.

We are very close to “too late”.

Note from Obama’s second to last State of the Union:

(On the heels of President Obama’s final Speech to the U.N. this morning, 092016, and his plea to keep Socialist Administrators in charge of everything… combined with his factual observation that Capitalism has improved the lives of everyone world over only to later call it “Soulless”… I felt it necessary to put this up again.  The idea that we all become closer in a world that becomes smaller is inarguable.  But those Socialists that subscribe to Undisturbed Evolution being the brilliance of the Universe are the same people who cannot conceive of the same Social Evolution without their input and control, in other words their meddling and distortion while cementing permanent positions as Administrators.  It’s genuinely amazing to hear such Arrogance and Narcissism spoken out loud.  Frankly it’s the speech Obama should have given 8 years ago.  It’s what he really believes.  He’s Smarter than you… and you’re welcome.  The Truth is Unfettered Capitalism does not require their self-anointed brilliance.  It only requires all of us making decisions for ourselves in an ever shrinking world.  They know this, and they see no place for themselves in such an Undisturbed Evolution.  This morning’s speech is nothing more than a cry for relevance.  A cry for Global Institutionalization of the Aristocracy and its inherent nepotism.  It’s nothing more than the vapid Marxism that has attempted to salvage the elitist hold on power as the worlds Monarchies collapse.  It’s old, it’s tired and it remains as dangerous as ever in it’s oppression, death and destruction.  Global Socialism is a Poison… and we are being told to double the dose.)


Big Vagina

(In light of our latest foray into Big Spending it felt right for a re-post.)

And I Thought I had Enough to Worry About…

Is There Anything Worse than something that gets too Big to Deal With and needs our Immediate Attention?

Big Oil, Big Banks, Big Bird and now Big Vagina.  All Big Issues for the Leftists.

I happen to agree with facets of each of these.

Big Oil…  Clearly government involvement in the Oil Industry from ridiculous regulations, barriers to entry and tax payer subsidies must go.  But this must be applied to the Energy Sector as a whole which sweeps up a darling of the Left… “Green Energy”.  It is always interesting to hear politicians act as if alternative energy projects would cease to exist if taxpayer funds didn’t directly subsidize the dreams of the Utopians.  Why I find this inane is if there were ever an organization that desired deeply to not be held hostage by fossil fuels it’s our military.  And, from my undisclosed location I have a direct view of many of those “green energy” projects paid for by your taxes… the military has conducted these for decades.  My point here, they don’t need more money… the experiments will not stop… and when it’s ready the military and the market will embrace it.

Big Banks…  Without question Big Banks had a huge part in destroying the U.S. Housing Market and the subsequent Global Economic Meltdown, Collapse of the EU and the overall state we now find ourselves in.  The Big Banks Directly Responsible were Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac… Government banks… which is why nothing will ever happen.  Nothing.  The Occupiers can continue not bathing for as long as they would like, nothing will happen.  The first time a Goldman Sachs banker, or JP Morgan banker, or any banker is pulled up before a court the connection will immediately be made to the government.  Not only will it be made to the government, it will be made in an easy, direct, way the public will be able to understand.  And we cannot have that, can we?

Big Bird… The media property that allows PBS to exist.  If Big Bird is a Victim of anything, it’s PBS.  This property has immense value… in the free market.  The bidding war to purchase Sesame Street would be fun to watch.  The employees would be superstars in a way they could never have imagined.  The franchise would explode.  The idea that losing the 5% of funding Sesame Street receives from the taxpayers is paramount to its survival takes for granted the public’s ignorance.  And, it works.  It’s genuinely sad for all of us.

Big Vagina… Now I’m confronted with a War on Women.  It appears this War started anew when Sandra Fluke made an impassioned plea that a friend of hers needed taxpayer dollars because she could not afford the Lamborghini of birth control… the $3000 a year version.  I mean, who would want to be seen in Wal-Mart?  While birth control might only be $110 a year, Wal-Mart is a bastion of dirty, toothless, conservative, non-union shoppers.  Who could possibly tolerate that?  So, pony up taxpayers!  This got limited play… thus had limited value… so Abortion was thrown out there (of which I’m Pro-Choice… just for the record), but also didn’t seem to get the desired traction with women.  The Left has always had success with the abortion issue because they have been able to position opponents as wanting to use “force”.  I, like the Socialists, am surprised that this hasn’t been more effective.  The only explanation I can come up with is the electorate is waking up to the idea that this is only area where the Leftist don’t approve of “force”, so… next up is Equal Pay.

While anecdotal, I can tell you the industries I have been associated with for many years have been dominated by women.  Most of those I hold in esteem.  Many of the highest earners were women.  Of my female peers most are still paid far more than me.  I know, I know… the statistics tell a different story.  But having “grown up” around professional women and having conversations sans political desires, I found the women consistently smarter than the men.  They chose the positions they occupied because they assigned value to the intangibles such as flexibility and limited work hours.  Not only did many of the women I knew want to have kids, they wanted to spend time with them and raise them… how stupid can you be right?  However, They didn’t expect their employer to keep their job vacant while they did this, nor did they expect to make as much as the idiot who worked from 6am to 10pm Mo-Su.  It has always been my contention that women have run the world since the beginning of time and will do so till the end of time.  As more Women forgo family we see the pay levels evening out.  If you want to sprint to the finish-line of statistical nirvana, figure out a way for men to get pregnant.  You would be surprised at how many would embrace such a chance.  (I also find it interesting how many of the high earning women I know still expect their mate to make more than they do… seems strange if parity is the only sign of equality as well as the Utopian dream.  I think a similar demand from Men would be greeted will howls, but who knows.)  Finally, pay disparities exist not just for women… but also for men.  I have always been aware that the joker across the hall can, and often did, make more money than me.  I never considered it the government’s responsibility to “even the playing field” as it’s not their job.  It’s my job.  So I would ask to be paid more, and if that failed I would find a new job of my choosing.  I exercised The Economic Principle of Substitution.

Anyway, it’s clear I don’t warrant special legal rights such as retroactive Class Action Status provided by the Lily Ledbetter Act because I don’t make up 51% of the population.

(Note: Men top the list in every category of violent crime victims save spousal abuse and rape.  Considering women make up 51% of the population… and given this statistical disparity… any of my Socialist readers have a government solution they would like to offer?  Should we collectively work to raise the incidences of crimes perpetrated on women to 51%, or should we assign special status to men and send the majority of taxpayer dollars to reduce violence against men, and men only, until there is parity?  This is the logic the Left holds up as enlightened. But I digress.)

What I find disturbing about this election cycle is the absence of my personal favorite “Big”.

Big Government…  the Cause of the above Big’s plus Big Sugar, Big Corn, Big Energy, Big Unions, Big EPA, Big OSHA, Big Healthcare, Big Insurance, Big Fat Kids, Big Education.  Big Government is the Cause and Protector of problems where there should not be any.  I’m not surprised I have to add Big Vagina to this list.

You can’t get Here from There.

Here’s a riddle.

Where does the sun go down while the sun comes up and has 25% of all the stuff we need?  (Like Moskovskaya wrapped in a sleeve of ice.)

At the peak of Soviet supremacy there were over 126 different languages spoken within its borders in addition to over 30 dialects of Russian.  The country existed within 12 time zones.  The sun really did come up as it is going down.  The Soviets also possessed an estimated 25% of all the worlds obtainable resources.  This was the tapestry on which a revolution was painted and the ultimate failure of Socialism illustrated.

The Socialists/Communists took control of this potentially unstoppable world power and in 72 years ran it into the ground.  They couldn’t help it.  Socialism required a top-down, command and control, economy… which always leads to failure in the end.

Fast forward to the early 2000’s…

The Soviet Union/Russia is still built on a “top down” model of government.  What I mean is that edicts are pushed down upon the citizens from above rather than what we (supposedly) have here in the U.S. where edicts are pushed up to the government from below.  This is an enormous and fundamental difference which explains what is going on over there as of this typing.

Russia (and soon China) are perfect examples of the “if we just tweak the system we can retain our control” mentality.  It will not end well, because it never ends well.

You must remember that those in power are always loathe to give it up.  The leaders in those countries recognize the benefits that free-markets provide but refuse to embrace the required transitional government, individual liberty and property rights which enable free-market capitalism to work.

They are not stupid.  They are certainly misguided… absolutely elitist… but not stupid.  So, to keep the peasants quiet they keep “tweaking the system” hoping that will enable them to stay in power.  But history has provided us with myriad examples to the contrary.  Not to mention the oppression, death and destruction resulting from such an approach leading up to the end.

Without question, Socialism is corrosive.  It destroys everything it touches.  (Look at the U.S. and see what Social Security and Medicaid/Medicare have done to this country.  The evidence is there for all to see… we may not want to talk about it, but it’s right there in front of us.)

Putin understands that short of completely changing the government structure in Russia they will return to totalitarianism.  But that’s not what he wants.  (Stalin taught us that you can even get the public to cry out for it if their lives are bad enough and they are kept in the dark as to why.  To this day there are fresh flowers placed by common Russians on his grave.  I’ve seen it first hand.)  Putin just wants to be in charge when it happens.  He’s doing a good job.

This is always the problem with “adjusting” a top down model of government.  A little less poison is still poison.  Socialism will never be conducive to freedom and the productivity that our system promulgates.  This is what makes the United States special, and unique, in the world.  The U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights were crafted to protect those individual liberties from an all-powerful state with the ability to force edicts upon the population. (Like Obama Care)  Because of this, the U.S. catapulted from a commonwealth to a hyper-power in a short 250 years.  It is why the rest of the world, from the pacific rim to Western Europe, is having to “tweak” their systems in the hope of staying relevant by comparison.  It’s also why they don’t like us for the most part.  (The only hope they have is having our system fail…  they should find comfort that our home-grown Socialists are working on it right now.)

The writing on the wall Russia and China are refusing to read is “You can’t get here from there”.

Let me leave you with a question;

Why are we chasing the bankruptcy which Socialism always delivers in the form of socialized medicine and the perpetuation of Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid in their present forms when there are free-market alternatives?

Pour yourself some of that cold vodka and ponder this…

Just Say No…

…To Socialism.

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.
