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.

There is an urban myth out there that needs to be addressed.

“Binge drinking is bad.”  No, wait.  Wrong one.

“Compromise is good.”

If you’re a product of the public schools (like I am) it should be expected you believe we should all get along.  You probably think our elected representatives should be having dinner together, holding hands and making out in the back of dark movie theaters.  You might even think it is GOOD when they all get together and create legislation effecting the rest of us.

In other words, you might believe passing lots of bills is a terrific way to judge their productivity.  You think the government should “do something”… You might have been taught that the founders of this country wanted our leaders to strip down and embrace each other every time they met so they could create lots of really cool law.  If any of this rings true for you, what you “know” is wrong.  You should demand a refund on that free public education.

Here’s the truth, our system of government was designed specifically to be slow, cumbersome and rarely produce laws.  It was created to make sure no single branch could run rampant over the others with this purpose in mind.  It was designed for a fight… over everything… in the hopes that whatever came out was only what was absolutely necessary.  Less was more.  Nothing getting done was fine, if not preferred.  (I’ve floated this idea around the house but have not had much traction.)

We have come a long way from that original intent.  Over the last 100 years we have entitled our politicians to do whatever they want.  They have learned to routinely create law outside of the Constitution because they know that the odds are no-one will challenge it.  And, if their law does get challenged it will take too long and the American people will lose interest, or more often think they are owed whatever the law might “give” them.

These same politicians also know they can slow down the process of any legal challenge by appointing judges who also don’t care what limitations the Constitution puts in place.  Such judges then present their rulings utilizing previous unconstitutional rulings they or their fellow travelers passed down earlier.  Amazingly, they are also not above using foreign law for validation… which I’m very sure the Founding Fathers did not intend.  The fact that we revel in our lack of understanding and promote such behavior in our leaders should be frightening.  It has brought us to a very scary place.  Haven’t you wondered why alcohol sales are up? We’re frightened, but too uninformed to know why.  It’s like a horror movie where the person about to get killed runs around the house and turns all the lights… off.

There has been a determined movement over the last 80 years to position the U.S. Constitution as too restrictive.  (Our current president is on the record promoting this very idea.)  But you will most often find it repeated by the “open-minded” who have not taken the 5 minutes needed to read it, let alone try to discuss and understand it. (They don’t need to read it… their hearts tell them what they need to know… what’s scary about that is they vote…)   These are also the people who think we should all give each other big wet sloppy kisses… all the time.  To them, getting along to “help the country” sounds so nice it requires no further exploration on their part.

To make things worse, there are too many people who want to be led and then insist you must be led as well.  These people have found a home on both sides of the aisle.  The Founders were aware this would always be a reality. The defense they gave us against such people was an extremely well-defined and very restrictive document, that could be changed, in other words amended, if needed… but it would take an act of congress. (Yes, that’s where the phrase came from.)

What it comes down to is that you have two sides to choose from.  One side subscribes to individual freedom and one does not.  What makes one side somewhat sinister is that it wants to control you with “the best of intentions”.  Bear in mind, those who believe the sheep need to be led never seem to count themselves among the sheep….

So there must always be a war between those who know you are too stupid to make decisions for yourself  (Statists/Socialists) and those of us who think you are the only person who knows what’s best for you. (Free-market Capitalists)   If you give it a moment of thought, does it  make sense that a person who subscribes to individual freedom be buddies with a person who believes in the soft slavery of statism?  It’s really as simple as that.  The line in the sand is Force.

In conclusion, we are not supposed to get along.  We are not supposed to compromise our individual freedoms.  Ever.

If you need proof, compromise with Socialists is what got us here today… bankrupt, having our e-mail and phones call tapped, “intelligence agents” looking at our daughters cell phone pictures and Facebook pages while your grandmother is getting molested at the airport.  And the useful idiots continue begging for more Bipartisanshitt…

When our Highest Court decides Words have No Meaning…

The Destruction of the Greatest Health Care System in the World through Government Takeover aside…

What’s in store for the Constitution of the United States?

It is now confirmed that ‘legal’ means whatever the person assigned to define it decides it means. This is serious territory we now find ourselves in.  In case you were wondering, this is what 9 out of ten Banana Republics and Dictators who run them recommend.

To find the ‘meaning’ the 6… Six… two-thirds… super majority… of Supreme Court Justices arrived at requires the complete disregard that the obfuscation was Intentional.  It was Subterfuge.  It was a Ruse perpetuated by those who sincerely believe the American People (You) are Stupid and Must Be Governed by the Self-Anointed Smart Folks.

It is Gruber Government at its worst.

And, this is the new ‘Legal’ standard with which all things will be judged.

This precedent is a very Big Win for One Specific Group… made up of Democrats, Socialists, Communists, Fascists, Marxists, Liberals, Progressives, Leftists, and Establishment (RINO) Republicans…

The Anti-America as it was Founded… the Anti-Capitalist… the Anti-Freedom… the Anti-Liberty… the Anti-Individual… the Elitist Scum have Won in more ways than One.  And They’re not finished.

Now is the time to panic…

We are in trouble.


Throwing a Life Line to the EU…

OK…

Time to get out your tin foil hats.  Push them firmly down on your head and grab a drink.

Ready?

Let’s Go!

Let’s suppose for a moment that roughly 20-years ago, when the idea of the European Union was still young, the support it won from the ‘Educated’ Leftists world over was due to their full knowledge it was Doomed to Fail.

Your hat still on?

Now that the EU is, in fact, Failing…

Let’s suppose that the very ‘Educated’ Leftists world over who supported the EU twenty tears ago DO NOT WANT TO SAVE IT because it’s Failure was the desired outcome.

Marx stated that Capitalism must collapse and Marxism/Socialism/Democracy/Progressive Leftist Liberal ideology would rise from the ashes by default.

European Leftists believe Social Democracies to be “Capitalist”.  The EU is a collection of Social Democracies.

Drunk yet?

Let’s combine this with my belief that the latest Trade Agreement which our politicians seem determined to shove down our throats, just like Obama Care, is actually a lifeline for our Socialist Friends over in the EU.

If I’m correct, then this explains why our homegrown ‘Educated’ Leftists also do not support the passage of this Super Secret Trade Legislation.  They, with their Fellow Travelers across the pond, want the EU to collapse because they believe that it will result is a Massive Win for Socialism/Marxism.

OK… if you haven’t passed out yet, you can take your hat off.

For the record, I also oppose the Trade Act.  But I haven’t read it… and neither have any of our supposed representatives who are trying to convince us it MUST BE PASSED.  My default position on all things I have not read is not to agree to it.  Pretty simple.  I should also state that I do not believe that the obvious outcome of the collapse of Western Socialist Democracies (calling them Capitalism does not make them Caitlyn Jenner) is finally the rise of the ‘right kind of’ Communism. The Social Democracies world over deserve to fail because of their predictably inane ideas.  The idea U.S. tax dollars should go to save them from their fate is outrageous.

In the end, I refuse to continue to be a Subject of Socialists…

But it seems that too many of our elected officials see our ‘friends’ across the pond as allies… instead of ideologically challenged associates.  This issue is the perfect light in which to view those who we support.

In fact, any one of those who are supposed to be representing us who ask us to support the Super Secret Trade Legislation which neither they nor anyone else has read should be drummed out of politics altogether.

(As a note:  Mr. Ryan… you have not read this Act.  So STFU.)

You want our support?

Make the Trade Legislation Public.

Allow Us to Read the Trade Legislation.  You MUST Read it… because IT’S YOUR JOB.

Allow all of Us to Discuss the Trade Legislation.

Then do what we ask you to… unless it’s in conflict with the Constitution.

I know this would change the current, and clearly comfortable, paradigm of “You’re all too stupid to know what we’re doing.” Gruber Government.  But that’s the “Change” we demand.  And WE get to Demand things here in America… Or at least we used to.

TIL about the U.S. Chamber of Commerce

According to Tom Donohue, President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, it’s 102-year-old existence has been to “Help the Government whenever (they) can.”

This he said on Fox News with Neil Cavuto today (011315).

This seemed odd to me.  Very odd.

So I went to their website.

From the Chamber directly:

“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business organization representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions. Our members range from mom-and-pop shops and local chambers to leading industry associations and large corporations. They all share one thing in common—they count on the Chamber to be their voice in Washington, D.C.”

No mention of their newly revealed mission of “helping the Government whenever they can”.

In fact, there is no mention of such a move towards the cooperation between government and business reflective of Fascism anywhere on their site.

Take a moment and visit it:  www.uschamber.com

One can only take away from the Chamber’s site that they represent the interests of Business… not Government.

Mr. Donohue’s proclamation might just come as a surprise to the millions of business owners who donate millions of dollars to the Chamber, including their local chapters, and expect them to be advocating on their behalf.

Allow me to be the first to say…

“Surprise!”

It’s worth noting that every time you hear ‘Big Money Donors’ and ‘Washington Lobbyists’ in reference to Republican candidates, think U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  They are also a major reason we continue to get Establishment Liberal Republicans (Democrats with ‘R’s’ behind their names) as Presidential nominees.  It’s a big reason will will see more of the same this election cycle unless we wake up.
