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.

We Need Herpes!

Imagine…

…A world where Everyone had Herpes.

I learned from a friend of mine, who has this disease (“Disease” is such a derogatory term…), about a very close-knit, and intimate, community.  They communicate via the internet and have social functions, outdoor activities, share business leads, etc. etc.  It sounded charming…  Then something wonderful occurred to me.

If all of us had Herpes these folks could come out of the shadows, and we could live in a world of free love and unity!  Think about it… you cannot “run the risk” (such hateful words) of catching it when we all already have it.  In fact, we would make it a rite of passage to seek it out and embrace it, so to speak.  The inherent fairness makes my heart sing sweet wisdom.

We could do away with “treatments” as the stigma would be gone forever.  We all would understand each other because we would share a common experience every 30 days or so…  we would all be equal.  Beautiful!

So bring on the herpes for everyone!  Let true joy and equality reign!

Demand it!  Roll out the chants!

“We wont go… until We All can’t go!”

It’s gonna be Viral!

 

Sound stupid?  Then why do we act this way regarding Socialism?

And just like herpes, once you get it you can never get rid of it.

The only upside is Herpes has not killed over 100 Million Innocent people and counting… while oppressing and enslaving Hundreds of Millions more.


Why do Socialists Hate Capitalism?

(Archive Diving)

So why does the Left, Progressive, Democrat, Liberal Socialist hate Capitalism so very, very, much?  (I don’t like having to use so many terms, but every time we figure out who these people are they change their name.)

They Hate Capitalism because it does not need them.

I’ve written about this is the past. Capitalism is the Default State of Economics. Capitalism appears in the hardest of Communist experiments. Mutually Beneficial Exchange bubbles up under the most horrific regimes.  There is always a War to stop it… but Voluntary Free-Trade cannot be stopped… ever.

This fact, that Free-Trade does not need Socialist guidance, makes them feel small in the Universe. It is a cold illustration of their value… and when you have an Ego that demands your “intelligence” be recognized, this is indeed a painful insult to suffer.

So, the self-proclaimed “Elites” among us have created, perpetuated, clung to, a governing theory that makes them feel good regardless of the historically demonstrable destruction left in it’s wake.

They have ignored, rewritten, re-phrased and changed the meaning of everything to protect the only system that permanently puts them in charge of everybody else.  I will remind you that this mindset is found across party lines… once you understand the definition of Socialism and it’s variants, spotting it is simple and you will no longer be fooled by “Democrat”, “Republican”, etc.

The reason I bring this up is that the election is upon us.  And if you think the Liberals will go quietly into the night you will be gravely disappointed.  There will be a screaming and gnashing of teeth rarely seen.  The Socialists have achieved almost all of what they have been working on for the last 100 years.  They will do anything and everything in order to preserve those gains.  The accusations will be loud, vile and repeated often not just by them but by their friends in the press.  All efforts to return the United States to a path of fiscal solvency and Free-Market principles will be met with claims of destruction, disease and death.  Should they lose their power… They will push, beg, plead, for “Bipartisanship”, “Cooperation” and “Compromise” to hold on to their gains and maintain status quo until they can wrest control of the government again.  And we have seen what happens when they have that control…

This is far from over, so don’t think you can just cast your vote and walk away.  If we are going to be the country the rest of the world looks up to, there will need to be a level of perseverance never before required of the electorate.  You will have to hold those you voted for accountable for the principles they espoused.  You will have to have a solid foundation to repel the arguments flung at you from the Left.  The Liberals will be desperate… and ruthless.  All the while accusing you of being both.

So it’s time for the Capitalists to move Forward!

Roll back the policies of the Past!  Save the Country from Bankruptcy!  Restore Individual Freedom!

We all know Free-Market Capitalism is the wave of the future.  It’s been 100 years… let’s give it a try again.  It will be painful, particularly for those who have built empires on Socialist policies.  It will also hurt the feelings of those who think they know better for you than you do.  But I can live with that.  Let’s bruise some Ego’s.  Even the Leftists will be better off for it.

The illusion of Ownership

We like to think we own things…

But do we?

Do you have a car?  If so, do you owe money on it?  Can the person you owe money to take it away if you don’t pay them the money you owe?  So… who really owns the car?

Do you have a house?  If so, do you owe money on it?  Can the person you owe money to take it away if you don’t pay them the money you owe?  So… who really owns the car?

Do you have either of the above but owe no money on them?  If so, do you have to pay property taxes and or registration fees?  If so, can the agencies charged with collecting those take them away from you, or worse put you in jail, for not paying them?

So… who really owns your stuff?

I’ve long offered that Fascism is just a flavor of Socialism… because Fascism is exactly Socialism with the only difference being State Ownership and Control by ‘other’ means.

Am I wrong?


Force

(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.)

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”.

F#@!

I make every effort to foster a ‘safe place’ for all types of discussion.  There are no topics I consider off-limits.  For that matter, most language is tolerated if it’s within context.  However there is one word that’s absolutely forbidden.

The four-letter “F” word.

I find the “F” word so offensive that I’ve had to post signs during get-togethers reminding my friends that it’s not to be used within the walls of my home.  At first they laugh, but then I remind them I’ve asked people to leave because they refused to stop using it.

I have to admit there is a longer list of words that I find disgusting, crude and distasteful.  These words can cause me to flinch visibly when uttered in my presence.  These are the kinds of words that if your kid comes in the room and employs them in a sentence, your face squishes up like you just bit into a lemon.  But that one word, that single most offensive word, is the one that earns them a slap across the face.  Possibly two.

I’m regularly appalled, as I’m sure you are, by how common the “F” word is used in public.  I’m even beginning to hear it on television!  It is commonly used in movies and music… and astonishingly, no one appears to care! It seems to easily slip off the tongue of young people and adults alike.  Protesters waive it around on signs, even politicians employ it with ease and often loudly.

Just writing about this is making me feel dirty.

It’s disgusting.

But we all know we can never fix that which we refuse to recognize.

So, for those of you easily offended, please cover your eyes… now.

“Fair”.

There!  I said it.

(I apologize for typing it out loud.  I need to go was my hands, and find a random kid to slap a couple times… just because.)

“Fair” is the most horrific and misused word in any language.

“Fair” is a word used to divide.

“Fair” a tool used to destroy reason.

“Fair” is as undefinable as it is unachievable.

Each of us has a different definition of its meaning making it the perfect escape for those whose arguments are too weak to defend and have no other option but to imply any disagreement they encounter is malevolent.

It’s only use is to justify theft, oppression, discrimination, death and destruction.

It’s a word that above all others should be permanently removed from our lexicon.

 


At this Point, What Difference Does it Make Who the Socialist is…

File Photo – Hillary Clinton having Seizure

I see there are voices out there offering up Tim Kaine as a replacement for Hillary given her handlers are now having to admit she is having Seizures with increasing frequency.

Folks, this would be a very valuable lesson for you all.

Replacing Hillary with Kaine would change nothing. Nobody is voting for Hillary because they Like her. Nobody.

The Democrat Party is nothing more than a euphemism for The Socialist Party USA.  It’s an Ideology… not a person.  The faces are just the presentation of the disease, not the disease itself.

You can put Bernie back in, Kaine, or Stalin himself. It will make no difference in regard to the Media Coverage and current polling data.  The numbers would be the same…

File Photo - Bernie Sanders

The people who are checking Hillary’s box, so to speak, are doing so because she represents the same Socialist Ideology that Obama represents. They are members of one of three groups; They are those who fancy themselves smarter than you and seek control over your daily affairs, they are those willing to Give up their Freedom for Handouts and believe fairness exists somewhere in the Universe or they are those who are genuinely too ignorant to recognize they should not be voting the way they are unless they associate with one of the aforementioned constituencies… but that’s how their parents voted.

I sincerely believe many, probably most, of you out there think rants on the Poison of Socialism are the domain of Tin Foil Hat wearers, I would remind you that after the last 10 years genuine conspiracy theories are in danger of becoming extinct.

So let the CPUSA put Kaine up front… or Warren… or Pelosi if they get real desperate.

It will not matter when it comes to their voting base.

The Vast Left Wing Majority of them are not “blind”… they know exactly what they are voting for.

Just like I know what I’m voting for…

Melania 2016!
