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.

“If you destroy a free market; you create a black market.” – Winston Churchill


Deterrence

Deterrence:

the act or process of deterring: such as
a : the inhibition of criminal behavior by fear especially of punishment
b : the maintenance of military power for the purpose of discouraging attack

This is Why the 2nd Amendment, the Inalienable Right to Bear Arms, is integral to your Freedom.  The 2nd Amendment is simply a recognition of a Right every Human possesses.

Inalienable:

incapable of being alienated, surrendered, or transferred

It cannot be taken away, or surrendered by any man.

You have these rights.  Those in charge can pretend to take them away, and continue to try to convince you they can, but they are yours and will always be so.

The Founding Fathers understood this and made sure to put them in a place everyone would see them.

But Why?

Were they Gun Nuts?  Did they Hate Kids?  Were they just a bunch of Idiots?

Let’s think this through…

Simply put, The Inalienable Right to Defend yourself Deters all manner of bad behavior.

The Right to Bear Arms deters; criminals from breaking into your home, criminals from robbing you on the street, criminals for confiscating your home, criminals from hurting your family, criminals from enslaving you, criminals from oppressing you in every way imaginable.

The ‘compromise’ we have made with those who wish to wield power over us via physical or legal thuggery is deterrence… not prevention.  This is because we recognize there must be certain agreements in place to make sure we don’t inadvertently physically infringe on our neighbors individual rights.  We call this Government.  But our form of Government is designed to be very, very, slow.  Our form of Government is designed to promote the solution to our disagreements be found locally and personally by intentionally being slow to respond.  It is also designed to recognize our right to defend that which is ours beginning with our lives, our bodies and our property.  But most importantly, it is designed to give Individuals every opportunity to resist it.

The tacit acknowledgement of consequences, should enough of us choose to resist our Government, is the only thing standing in the way of our returning to historically ugly types of Rule such as the rest of the world still suffer today.

In the United States bad people, such as racists, thieves or politicians, must think hard before infringing on your Inalienable Right to Live Free.

But it doesn’t mean they won’t try.

That’s the Beauty, the Brilliance…

One doesn’t even have to possess a weapon.  The idea that someone around you might be armed is often enough to discourage, or deter, a Bad Actor from Acting Badly.

All of us must start by understanding that the 2nd Right in the Bill of Rights is not only responsible for the very Freedom you enjoy as you read this but assists in protecting it from this point forward.  Those who pine for power and want to Force you to do what they think is right without Argument or Recourse wish nothing more than to remove that Right, that Obstacle to their control, from you any way they can.

It’s that simple.

Sadly, our publicly educated Masses have been indoctrinated in Socialism, a sinister governing theory crafted by the 19th Century’s disenfranchised aristocrats, which promises equality with a deadly wink and a nod.  Most of us do not consider ourselves Communists/Socialists and if we do its most often because our educators have intentionally hidden the history of this poisonous idea from us.  We have been brought up being taught to believe those in positions of power are magically no longer human… Somehow our Politicians, Teachers and Law Enforcement Officers are not fallible, not self-interested, not ignorant or ill educated in any way.  We have been programmed to see them as beyond reproach and existing only for the well-being of others.  We have been taught that because of this we should obey them without question.  We have been convinced that we humans have somehow evolved to a more enlightened existence… even when presented with contrary evidence every waking moment of our lives.

In other words, too many of us have been Fooled, and because of that we are now being employed as Useful Idiots.

It is up to the Few of us left who understand what The United States means to the World to educate our friends and neighbors about American Exceptionalism and why we are the Brightest Beacon of Light for the Global Oppressed.  We have to explain the reasons so many of those outside of this great nation founded During the Age of Reason often sacrifice everything to live out their lives here.  We have to shout out loud why so many wish to escape to The United States of America…  And we must resolutely explain why any effort to reverse our unique course and return to the Oppression, Death, Destruction and Slavery of Mankind which is currently called Socialism must be resisted at every turn.

It is incumbent upon us to communicate how our Bill of Rights in its entirety makes us Great as it accommodates the permanent state of Human imperfection.

We should ask our friends to look around… and have them ask; “Why does no other Country on Earth Dare to recognize the Individual Human Right to such Freedom?”

The answer is historically obvious.  Those in power are fully aware that such and acknowledgement would drastically and permanently diminished that power.  Those in Control always wish to Remain in Control.  Our recognition of our Inalienable Rights by enshrining them in the First 10 Amendments of our Founding Documents was expressly designed to deter such behavior.

We’re Exceptional exactly because we have broken with Man’s long History of Oppression and Slavery.  We have broken with the Reign of Kings, Divine Right to Rule and Holy Blood Lines.  We have defied thousands of years and thousands of previous governing theories to create a miracle.

It is clear and easy to understand, unless you intentionally choose not to.

In the end…

You can no more ban individual’s weapons than you can ban individual’s speech because both are essential ingredients in the Worlds only recipe for Individual Freedom.

At this time we are seeing both being threatened.


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.

 


Symbolism Over Substance

After President Obama’s comments  during an interview with an NBC reporter in which he stated he ‘regretted the optics’ of racing out for a round, or two, of Golf after addressing the Nation regarding a Video of an ISIS Terrorist Hacking the Head off of an American Journalist with a Knife, I must restate an observation.

Liberalism, Progressivism, Socialism, Leftism… whatever you want to call it… is about Symbolism not Substance.

President Obama made it very clear he regretted the way his Golf Game was viewed… however, not the FACT he went out to play a game after the country was presented with such a horrific act.  Let me clarify, not just the Country but the entire World was presented with this atrocity and our President went out and played Golf.

The President is a genuine Democratic Socialist.  He’s the Real Deal.  The primary concern is how you see himnot what he does.

The Left can never have it any other way.

The reason for this is that you would NEVER like the substance if it were presented to you in an easy to understand, straight forward way. Never.

All that remains is Symbolism.

Democratic Socialists cannot allow themselves to be judged by what they are doing.  They must control the exposure the receive to insure You make all of your judgments of them based on Feelings… never Actions and Facts.

When Democrats Say they care about you and not just your vote… when Liberals claim to seek Equality… when both Democrats and Republicans pretend to champion Freedom and Liberty of the Individual, as our founders intended, they are employing Symbols. They have No Intention of following through with any of those things.  ‘It’s just the flowery rhetoric used to influence the Masses and get elected.’ – Every Liberal Republican and Democrat

Over 100-years ago Alcohol was removed as a viable way to but votes.  Now all they have left is to Lie to you, in any and every fashion you will accept.

And Lie they Do…

You’ll notice when the Masses push back, as in the case of the above Golf Game, Leftists will lament the way ‘it looked’ and not the act itself.  Then they will change the Lie, distract you with something else, or more often than not blame You for seeing it that way.

Why?  Because they know it works.

If they can ply you with imagery, powerful words and appealing promises, you have demonstrated, over and over, you will happily keep them in power.

In the End, that’s all that matters… To them.

And it is Your Fault.

Once you begin to watch what they DO in comparison to what they SAY it is a life-changing moment.  You will question all you think you know and believe.

But, you have to be intellectually honest enough with yourself to watch Them All… not just the ones you think… or someone else tells you to think… you disagree with.

It should make you uncomfortable… very uncomfortable.
