No Plan “B”

It has become clear to me that the total meltdown we are witnessing after the Trump Victory is due to a simple fact. The Democrat Socialists, in this country and world over, had no plan “B”. The Leftists had believed they had “won” in regard to wresting control of every governing apparatus in every country on Earth. It seemed their march to a One World Socialist Utopia no longer had any real opposition and all that remained was a jockeying for position within the power structure established to rule over it.

Whoops.

Now they are watching helplessly as their tireless drive to imprison us all under a single power is being dismantled.

A Few weeks ago there was an open letter being circulated reportedly from Georges Soros, the Financial Champion of Global Socialism, lamenting this latest turn of events. In that letter he speaks of Karl Popper being a major influence on his world view. That explains a lot.
While Popper is supposedly considered one of the “greatest” 20th century philosophers, I will leave that to you, I don’t share that view for a simple reason. Karl Popper wanted to be everybody’s friend.  He is what we would today call a “Moderate”.

He believed, erroneously, that all the governing theories could be reconciled. In other words, Everybody could be right and we all could get along.  On the face of this assertion it seems nice… to the point of flowery.  However, it does not take a monumental amount of critical thinking to recognize that most of us do not share a sense of ‘fairness’ and ‘congeniality’ with Socialist Dictators and Thugs who have anointed themselves, their associates and family, with brilliance, sometimes even divinity, and view their role as one which is to ‘take care of the unwashed masses’.

On the site where I found the letter, again purportedly from Mr. Soros, a reader commented accurately pointing out the primary flaw in Popper’s idea was his subscription to Plato and what has been called Platonic Paternalism. (The reader then goes off the rails and promotes pure democracy… but at least he was half right.)  This idea of Paternalism implies that we ‘elect’ leaders to take care of us… read that again… Take Care of Us… not just represent us. There is a vast difference in the two positions.  These are profound differences which separate Representative Republics from Democracies. One necessarily requires Unlimited Government in the name of “taking care of the people”, the other requires Limited Government in the name of “Protecting Individual Liberty and Freedom”, thus making these two governing theories irreconcilable or ‘mutually exclusive’.  You can not depend on someone else taking care of you and be “Free” in any meaningful sense of the word.  And, inversely, one cannot be “Free” but not shoulder the responsibility of taking care of themselves, or suffering the consequences of their actions, without the promise by an individual with the power to force others to come to your aid or hold you unaccountable… as eventually it will be you who is forced to provide that aid or look the other way.  (Again, as always, “Force” comes into play when speaking of functional Socialism.)

The letter also illustrated a view shared by all ‘educated’ Socialists. Free Market Capitalism protected by Limited Government which is protected by Transitory Power simply does not exist as a Governing Option.

It’s that simple folks.

You’re insane.

The reason you will never be able to have a cogent conversation about Freedom and Liberty of the Individual protected by a Limited Government (America as it was founded) with a Democrat, and Frankly many of those calling themselves Republicans, is because they don’t see what you believe in as an option. It is not on the spectrum of their chosen reality.  There is no room for it.

This explains some of the massive disconnect when trying to have an argument of ideas. You understand that the Oppression, Death and Destruction which is Socialism is in reality a Governing Theory, and it is available to all who want it. You get it. They, on the other hand, see no other option… none.  Socialism is where it starts and stops, all that remains to fight over is what flavor of it ‘works’ and who’s going to be in charge.

When you hear Fascists and ‘Conservatives’ both being called “Right Wing”, this is why. Socialists do not acknowledge that your idea of Limited Government and Individual Freedom exists… so they have no where else to put you but in the far “Right” side of the Socialist Spectrum where there remains some semblance of private property rights (Fascism). To classify you outside of that spectrum is to admit there is an option other than the Soft Slavery of Socialism. That, to them, cannot be allowed.

There is no question their apple cart is being upended with Brexit, Trump and soon France, Germany, etc. But these are minor set-backs for people like Soros who are lamenting not the failure of their poisoned worldview but the fact they will not see its realization within their limited life span. The war for the Ultimate Minority, the Individual, has not been won. The Socialists have permeated the machine which is government world over. If we the people fail to understand why these ideas are like Oil and Water then the Individual is doomed.

But Wait!

The good news is because of the hubris found on the side of the Socialists there is a pin prick of light peaking in.

They have no plan “B”.

There is no fallback position in place, they have lost momentum.

There is hope…  assuming the Forces of Individual Freedom and Liberty are ideologically united.

Are we?

Will this be the age of The Great Renovation?

The Electoral College is Stupid!

The Electoral College is Stupid because it was created by Gun Toting, Slave owning, God Believing Syphilitic Old White Men with Bad Teeth over 200 years ago.  And, they wore wigs… men should not wear wigs.

Oh, and I have a college education but still don’t have any idea what it is or why we have it… because all explanation of it has been intentionally deleted from what was once called Academic Rigor.

Please allow me a few words of informal, drunken, ‘lower’ education…

First, we are a Democratic Republic. We are NOT a Democracy.  Democracy Sucks.

If you don’t understand the difference between A Representative Republic and a Democracy (aka Mob Rule) then stop here and spend a quality moment with your Googler.

Okay, now for the simplest explanation of the Electoral College I can attempt to convey.

The Electoral College are our representatives who gather to formally deliver each States will in regard to who is to be elected President of the United States.

This is about States Rights… something else you were intentionally not taught all through your ‘higher’ education. If needed, whip out your Googler again and search Federalism as well as the Tenth Amendment (That bothersome Inalienable Right which rounds out the Bill of Rights.)

So yes, your vote matters. But it only matters in the State in which you live.

Got it?

Now let me explain to you why you should like this whole Electoral College thing.

Let’s take just four states; Florida, California, Illinois and New York.

Florida has a current population estimated at 20,270,000 people, therefore the State is allotted 29 Electoral Votes.

California has a current population estimated at 39,140,000 people, therefore the State is allotted 55 Electoral Votes.

Illinois has a current population estimated at 12,860,000 people, therefore the State is allotted 20 Electoral Votes.

New York has a current population estimated at 19,800,000 people, therefore the State is allotted 29 Electoral Votes.

Still with me?

This gives just these four States an overall population of 92,070,000 people with a combined 133 Electoral Votes.

The Population of the United States is currently Estimated at 330,000,000 People.
Of those, Roughly 140,000,000 of them Vote in Presidential Elections.

If the Founders were Foolish enough to be into Mob Rule (aka Democracy), just these four States, assuming their populations all voted monolithically, would rule the entire country.

Just the 92,070,000 person “Popular Vote” of these four States create an Overwhelming Majority against the overall Voting population.

We could change our name to New Califlorinois.

But luckily for all of us… they were not Fools.

In the Electoral College these four States have 133 total Electoral Votes…

Not only did the Founders see the Danger of Democracy (aka Mob Rule) being exercised all over the World with Horrific results, they recognized that Centralized Governments only expand in size, scope and power over the people leading to oppression, death and destruction. Their Mission was to Protect You From Government.  This is exactly why we were created as a Representative Republic. (But you know this already because just a few moments ago you were busy with your Googler. By the way, it is a myth that Googling yourself will cause you to go blind or grow hair on your palms, I know this from a lot of personal experience. A lot.)

The Founders knew that just because one resided in a specific State it did not make that person Smarter, or Better, than the souls living outside of those States.

They wisely believed the rest of the United States should have at least some say in what direction the country moves in.

So, Do you Still Think the Electoral College is Stupid?

Yes?

okay…

What if all four of those States “Popularly” voted Republican?

I suspect you wouldn’t be happy about that.


The Enemy Within

For the handful of you that haven’t already realized the Republican Party has been compromised by the Liberal Left and their Fascist Ideology…

As a Parting Gift, John Boehner has just handed the Progressives unlimited spending.

This is on the heels of a mock election for the Speaker of the House which Boehner immediately canceled when it became clear the Leftist Establishment was not going to get the outcome they wanted.

Now the Banana Republicans have achieved their goal by anointing Paul Ryan as the Next Speaker for the House of Representatives.

If it isn’t clear by now…

You’ve been used.  You’re still being used.

From the faux opposition to Obama Care, a poorly disguised pathway to Single Payer Socialized Medicine, which allows for total control over everything you do. and will do, to takeover of the banks by the very Leftists who caused them to fail in the first place… from where, and when, you’ll be allowed to travel, to what kind of wage you’ll be allowed to earn… from what you eat and read, to what activities you’ll be permitted to participate in.  All of these things will be decided for you by Socialists with ‘the best of intentions’. In fact, it’s already started in school lunch programs and mandatory insurance policies.

The Democrats and their RINO counterparts will tell you “It’s about your happiness, health and well-being after all.”  No allowing of your Individual Freedom.  Certainly no allowing your right to choose.

The fact all the above serves to solidify the permanent power of those Leftists on both sides of the aisle, and their progeny, is to be ignored by you.

When the message is,

‘Do not understand ‘why’ America is exceptional.  Do not demand Political Ideology and Governing Theory be clearly espoused, and more importantly demonstrated, by ‘your guy’.  Do not Require your Government return to the Constitution’s Original Intent and Expressed Limitations.’

When you’re being told,

‘It’s too Late.  Nothing Can be done about it.  Government will always be corrupt so you might as well get yours.’

It has begun.

What should you be feeling?

Bitter… Betrayed… Angry… Scared… Frustrated… Motivated…

Make no mistake, there is a war going on right in front of you.

The Enemy is Within.

It’s time to pick a side within the Republican Party.  It’s time to Defeat the Cancer that has led this country into Fiscal Insolvency and Democratic Socialism.   It’s time to Think… forcefully.

You will have no friends.


Fozzy Bern say’s there’s a Difference…

Fozzy Bern

Lenin would be smiling at Bernie Sanders’ attempt to draw a difference between Socialism and Democratic Socialism during the first Democratic Debate for President. For that matter even Stalin knew the benefit of putting a happy face on Socialism in order to draw more Useful Idiots to the cause.

But Bernie should be reminded that Vladimir Illych would have had Felix make Mr. Sanders quietly disappear had he made the same argument in private where it could be interpreted he actually meant it.

There is no difference between Socialism and Democratic Socialism.

For that matter… contrary to a number of articles I’ve had to suffer through as of late, written by the poorly educated and/or the simply useful, there are only minor differences between Socialism and Fascism. Yes Virginia, Nazi’s (National Democratic Socialists Party) are indeed the siblings of Democratic Socialists.

(And Yes you Liberal Leftist Progressive Fools… I know Stalin was not specifically funneling Jews into ovens. Instead, he busied himself burying three times the number of EVERYONE on the Steppes, just to make it ‘fair’. History is fun… if it were not so sad.)

Socialism is a Poison, whatever the flavor.

It’s a Poison that kills quickly or slowing depending on how much of it you take.  The Elitist A-holes that subscribe to it suckle at the teat of Western Capitalism, without which their countries would return to their Aristocratic and Monarchist roots. Without Capitalism, Socialism disappears, and the Blood of Kings would truly return. And Bernie, you wouldn’t be one of them… no matter how you like to dress up.

Even without the luxury of Holy Bloodlines, Socialism has killed over half a billion of its adherents… so far.

Speaking of Outdated Monarchies…

Bernie, regardless of what they do for their workers… your shining examples of Denmark, Norway and Sweden would never be able to survive as ‘Socialist’ countries if it were not for three very important things.

1. They live under the umbrella of NATO and do not have to field a military strong enough to defend themselves.
2. They have vast amounts of precious minerals which enjoy Global high demand.
3. Nobody wants to live there.

Capitalism provides them two of the above three.  Geographic ‘luck’ provides them with the third.

So No Bernie, we do not want to do what those countries do for their workers, because we cannot do what those countries do for their workers.

We’re too busy equipping, training and maintaining an Army to protect them, and too busy buying their rocks, to do so.

And Fozzy… people want to live Here.

So take your Happy Faced Socialism somewhere else.

We’re all Educated here.


Democracy Kills.

Stop It! Stop It! Stop It!

Stop talking about “Democracy” as if it’s a good thing!

While this is a sin committed by seemingly everyone, it struck me after listening yet again to the President and the Secretary of State speak glowingly about Democracy being introduced to the Middle East (Which is melting down), and the resulting democratically elected leaders that we MUST deal with, it occurred to me that they were playing on the ignorance of the American people… yet again.

This is not splitting hairs… this matters and we all need to understand it.  Democracy is horrible.

Historically, when Democracy is present, populations (almost without fail) vote themselves into tyranny.  In other words they ask to be taken care of, and they get taken care of… just not the way they wanted.  Every Socialist Dictator claims to be, and most often has been, at some point “Democratically elected”…

Do you really want to help countries enjoy what we enjoy here is the United States?

Here are the ingredients, all of which are poisonous on their own;

A Judiciary, by itself is a collection of “priests” passing edicts upon the population by fiat.

A Congress, by itself is a tribal meeting of elites fighting for and protecting their personal interests.

An Executive, by himself is a dictator.

What is required to establish a Free Country is a mix of the above…

A recipe, or better yet, a Constitution specifically defining the checks and balances of each branch and limiting government to very specific responsibilities to protect the Individual and his property rights.  (Unenforced, is a “living, breathing” piece of paper and nothing more.)

Elections without ALL of the above, is Democracy.  Democracy, by itself is simply “legitimized” mob rule.  This is what is being promoted by the Progressive Left.

But combine the above with Free-Market Capitalism protected by Individual Property Rights and now you have a recipe for greatness.  You have what the United States should be…

However,

Democracy on its own… you have what is today the Middle East.  A region on Fire and Falling into Theocratic Oblivion.

The goal should never be “Democracy”.  And, contrary to what generations of poorly educated public school teachers think (and apparently the Obama Administration as well), we do not live in a Democracy.  The United states is the product of a finely tuned mixture of all the above.  We should know this, and understand it.  Democracy is only one part of a beautiful formula making our country unique from the rest of the world.  Now is the opportunity to contrast what we have, and why we have it, against a tapestry of violence and destruction.  If today’s examples are not good enough then let’s go back a little ways.  Lenin wrote profusely regarding “Democratic Socialism” and his wish for “Democracy” leading to the dictatorship by the Proletariat.  Mao added a class and proposed roughly the same thing.  The Socialists have always viewed direct “Democracy” as integral to their achieving their goals.  I could list a number of prominent Social Elitists who killed their own citizens in the name of Social Utopia, but for this post those two should suffice.

In case you didn’t know;

We proudly (most of us proudly…) live in a Democratic Republic… “if we can keep it.”

We work very hard at maintaining the integrity of our elections.  (Or at least we should.  The lack of prosecutions for election fraud is deplorable.  ref: Preserving My Right to Cheat.)  We also have checks and balances at every level of our local, state and Federal government with the hope we can keep it.

To make this simple, understand the words you use.  When you do, you’ll understand what others are saying to you.  And you’ll learn quickly that some things you think are “good” are actually “evil”.  (Like decaf coffee… who drinks this?  Do the same people drink non-alcoholic Beer?  What’s next, non-alcoholic Bourbon? Clearly there is evil in the world.)

Socialism. Why Not?

Let’s be honest…

You know you’re Smarter than most people.

You’re certain the only thing that happens when other people are given the ability to make their own decisions is they make the wrong ones…

It’s clear to you that everyone is better off having Smart folks like you in charge of things…

Why?  Because life is complicated, and requires the best and brightest to navigate it… especially for everyone else.

Of course You believe in Freedom!

Freedom is not having to constantly make choices about everything…

Of course You believe in Liberty!

Liberty is not having a bunch of responsibilities taking away from the stuff you want to do…

But you also believe in Good Government!

Because Government is the source of all things good in the World…

You weren’t born yesterday… you know what’s Bad!

Corporations are the root of all things Bad…

You also know who the Racists are!

You know for a fact that anyone who opposes the things you think to be true are racists… even those who are minorities.

And you realize the debate is Over!

You are Far too Intelligent… to argue with anyone who doesn’t agree with you.

In the End… There is no question You must save the rest of us from Ourselves.

And, if all it takes is forcing a bunch of people to make the right decisions…

Why Not?


Springtime for Morsi

“Dictatorship” is such a divisive word.

I won your hearts by over a third.

So I’m not one of those as you suppose… you voted for me, democratically.

Of course with that small formality out fo the way,

Now you just have to do what I say.

Else…

I might “detain” you, and do things to you where nobody can see. I might “disappear” you late one night, or “deport” you while keeping your family filled with fright.

Or, I might let you off in a more “Western” style with the use of forms and file, and just take all of your property by means of tax and levy… but you should know whatever I may choose, the West will smile at my enlightened approach to handling you.

I am not a Theocrat either, so don’t say such things. I support tolerance for all the forms of Islamic Practicing. I have learned this is best from your Secularists who cheer my approach of handling Allah’s followers without so much as a coach.

I am not afraid, there is no man from which I cower. I support the right of my opposition to protest my declared power. I have given them this right and all that comes with it, as long as they’re smart and don’t step in it… I’ll allow them this luxury with never a limit. This is a lesson the West is learning from me… and they smile with glee at my enlightened approach to handling those who believe… they are free.

I’m the Arab Spring, A Leader of a “new” Middle East… the latest Hot Thing.

This is Democracy…

and, Democracy for all…

Your United States paid for it… yes, every single taxpayer which means you… no matter your religion so even the Jews, so we thank you too for our funding anew.

Oh… and, Death to Israel… March them into the Sea!

PS.  Send us some more F-16’s.

Democracy Kills
