Gruber Government

From the anals of Washington Elitist Government comes the latest in ‘How to get things done when the American Public is just too Stupid to understand‘.

This is why Cynicism is the Only, Constant and Always method to view those we elect… especially those we vote for.

Republican Leftist Paul Ryan has joined Democrat Leftist Progressive Nancy Pelosi in the Jonathan Gruber School of Governing with his latest demand that you will only be allowed to see what’s in the Obamatrade Act after your representatives Pass it.

I don’t believe you need to be reminded what a debacle Obamacare is… and getting worse. So I won’t.

Now we’re told that we are again too stupid to be allowed to see what’s in a sweeping, certainly not limited to what we would think is “trade”, Trade Act before we are all subject to it.

From what small snippets have been leaked, and adding together soundbites from the three people who have at least gone down to the Capital Dungeon to ‘read’ it, there is enough for everyone to hate. The Washington Elites would tell you “That’s how the sausage is made, and it represents a ‘Good Compromise‘.” I would offer it is also how fecal matter is made and represents the very same… just like Obamacare.

So we are told by a supposed “Conservative” that we must pass it to see what’s in it.

Clearly the Democrats who oppose it are not interested in ‘passing it to see what’s in it’… primarily because they are not at all sure they will hold the Presidency in the next term, and are not interested in the profound power which will be moved from the Legislative Branch to the Executive Branch.

And the few “Constitutional Originalists” we have left in the Conservative Movement (read ‘non-leftist’) who are still acting that way, oppose it because it will amount to several anti-capitalist results.

First, there can be little doubt that our allies in Europe have prolonged the Doom of Greece, and the Drowning of the EU, in the hopes that something in the deal Bails out their Socialist Union Scheme which many of us said would fail. We knew this back in the Nineties because people and nations lie… and always will… nothing is new under the sun. (Note: Jeb Bush is meeting with European leaders who are looking for reassurance should he become president that he would not interfere with this new, expected to be shoved down the throats of the American People, EU Bail Out/Trade Act.)

We must begin asking ourselves why American Tax Dollars should continue to go to bailing out Failed Socialist Schemes and the long-dead Socialist ideology those schemes are built upon. Reinforcing Oppression, Death and Destruction should not be a committment made by The United States of America. The Western Socialist Democracies need to be allowed Fail on their own so they will modify their behavior. They have survived at the teat of American Free-Market Capitalism (in what feeble form it exists) for well over 100-years. The time is Now to Stop Enabling Elitist Control and Class Stasis of Fascist/Socialist A-Holes.  But it starts at home…

Second, there is little doubt that this ‘Trade’ bill will magically include Immigration Powers not before held by the Executive Branch. Just as the Commerce Clause has over time been perverted to mean just about anything, and everything, depending on what some person in power wanted it to mean…
Now it will be ‘Trade’. We have mechanisms in place to deal with immigration, but the survival of the Leftist Socialist-Fascist movement in this country depends on new government dependants. Whether these dependants are from other countries, or home-grown, doesn’t matter to the Socialists. As long as they get to vote… and vote for their redistributed ‘paycheck’, Liberalism survives.

Third, this Act will certainly create the very same type of Socialist Symbiosis represented by the European Union and carry with it the very same ‘certain to fail’ model. Just like Obamacare destroying the finest Medical system on the planet, why do we do this to ourselves? The answer is simple. The Socialists believe that it’s not the failure of their ideas. Rather, it’s that their ideas have never been allowed to catch up to the wild success of Self Determination and Free-Market Capitalism (in what feeble form it exists). They continue to fully subscribe to centralized control while anointing themselves Philosopher Kings. It truly is a Fatal Conceit.

Sure… if you’re Leftist Progressive you might think this is super cool. But once you think past the Trees and see the Forest (Something most Liberals are intentionally never taught to do) you clearly see that these powers are assigned to the Executive Branch, not just Liberal leftist Socialist progressives when they hold the Executive Branch.  Thus the push back from the Leftists… and frankly, a main reason the Leftist Light Republicans support it.

The United States is now run by those who seek to protect Government from us, not protect us from Government.

Are we going to allow Jonathan Gruber to be correct when he says “The American People are too Stupid to know what’s going on.”?

We proved him right not long ago with Obamacare…

So…

Probably.


Stop Apologizing, Fool.

Mitt Romney told the truth. And he is now apologizing for it.

This is, and has been, my problem with Mitt Romney.
When you say something such as “there are people who feel entitled to handouts and do not pay taxes who will vote for President Obama no matter what…”, you are stating a fact. This is not up for debate. It is not an “opinion”. This is the truth.

You should not care who is offended by the truth.
So… you should not apologize. Ever. You don’t even think about it.

Yet, he does and did.

Keep in mind, he has my vote… but he was not my first choice exactly because of situations like this. His ideological foundation that his premises are built upon is questionable at best. I believe Romney will win this election, but he will need to be watched closely throughout his term.  (This reality will also require many “limited government conservatives” to ride his coat-tails into office. The down ticket matters immensely.)

So why does this man need to have a very strong grounding in Limited Government and Free-Markets?

Because if he wins he will have to extricate government interference from the markets and employ simple, predictable tax law so we can figure out how to invest.  He will have to communicate this clearly and often… almost daily.  He will have to communicate at every step.  He will have to understand, genuinely know, that this is what must be done in order to save the U.S. from fiscal collapse.

So what does that mean?

It means that there will be a ton of pain quickly.  Interest rates will need to skyrocket in order to begin undoing the ridiculous amount of newly printed money that has been pushed into the market. There will be at least a full year of ugliness before economic numbers can begin to improve.   Romney will have Socialists screaming “SEE, SEE, SEE, he’s no better!  He’s even WORSE!  And if the Republicans have any desire to retain the House and Senate in 2014 they will have to be prepared for this, starting at the top.  Retaining both houses will be integral to any possible success, this eventuality will force a very accelerated and painful 2013.  But the up-front pain is only the first step of recovery from our addiction to government and the Socialist paradigm.  This will be a decades long process.

So back to my original point… if this guy is apologizing for making a factual statement, where is he going to be when things get hard?  If he can’t stand by the truth, what will he do when the population needs an explanation, and a lot of them, not an apology?

The covert tape of this Boca Raton fundraiser where he states the facts he is now apologizing for should instead be turned into a campaign ad.  It could only add some clarity to a person best described as Mr. Gray Area.

Mitt Romney does not yet know why he thinks what he thinks.  We can not assume he ever will.  We must surround him with people in the House and Senate who do.

His Fear of truth is unacceptable.

Somebody buy this guy a shot.
