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.

Who Owns You?

You?

Apparently not.  If you have been watching any part of the hysterics associated with the Fiscal Cliff and the subsequent “deal” struck, everyone owns you…  particularly those in government.  If you’ve been able to remain sober, read on… pardon me if I slur my typing.

Let’s begin with the basics.

There has been much confusion as of late in regard to what a “principle” is.

We supposedly seek “principled men” to occupy political offices, but then we chastise those who demonstrate those qualities.

We demonize those few who stand up for the principles we think we subscribe to… so let’s figure this out.

Let’s start with the definition of the word:

prin·ci·ple
 [ prínssəp’l ]
  1. basic assumption: an important underlying law or assumption required in a system of thought
  2. ethical standard: a standard of moral or ethical decision-making

OK… so you should ask yourself why is it so important for President Obama to get the Republicans in Congress to concede on raising taxes even if it’s only for certain “other” people… (for the moment.)

The Principle in question; Do you own your money and by extension yourself?

Capitalism says; “Yes, you own your money and because of that you own yourself.”

Socialism says; “No, you do not own your money… and because of that everyone other than you owns you, if they believe it benefits them.”  And who ever they are always think it benefits them.

Once you concede the principle that the Government owns the money, and you don’t, then everything is good for the continued march to Socialism.  This is why tax increases are so important to the Left even though they are effectively meaningless in regard to reducing the deficit, let alone the debt.  It reinforces the Primary Socialist Principle that Government owns the money and thus by extension owns you.  When they say “Is it unreasonable to ask the rich to pay a little more?” what they are actually saying is “Is it unreasonable to force someone to pay more?”  They are hoping you keep saying “No, not at all… seems fair.”

In other words, the Democrat/Socialists (and a number of Soft Socialist Republicans) need you to think it is OK to take more money from “other” people.  They need you to believe that we should take more money from whomever they choose, right now “the wealthy”, in order to reduce the deficit… or whatever cause du jour.  (Note… they will not mention “The Debt” which is truly what will destroy the U.S. soon and suddenly.)  They need you to concede that they have the power not to cut out-of-control spending but rather to take your, their, somebody’s money… and then give it to whomever they see fit, because it “belongs to all of us”.  (It’s worth noting they often see fit to give your money to donors running unmarketable products produced by solar energy companies which quickly go out business.)

This is a very simple Principle to understand.

Either the money you possess is yours or it is not.  Either you allow government to use some of it, or they allow you to use some of it.

So which is it?

There has been some discussion regarding certain Republicans who voted for this “deal” avoiding the Fiscal Cliff.  (I will remind everyone, since language seems to be so important, that this deal does nothing to avoid any fiscal cliff.  The United States is still speeding unencumbered towards its fiscal demise.)  I would offer that holding Republicans accountable during this charade is exactly what needs to be done.  It’s time we start talking about our representatives by NAME.  Far too many of us assume it’s someone else’s elected official who voted for this or that and never their own… it’s time to change that.  It is also assumed that certain politicians who possess a brand image that suggests “Fiscal Conservancy” that they could not/or would not approve of such a ridiculous deal.  These are particularly the representatives that need to be challenged as to what Principled Position they operate under.  (Like the Hurricane Sandy bill offered 1/2/13 which was full of crappy earmarks and pet projects… we should be outing the authors of this wanton spending for some good old-fashioned hazing if not outright public condemnation.)

What happens to most of our politicians once they reach DC is they abandon all of their principled rhetoric in favor of pragmatism.

This is another reason the Democrat/Leftists in our government see it as crucial to get the Republicans to concede that government owns the money… not you.  The Socialists that occupy our government are terrified of those certain individuals that will not opt to be “pragmatic” but instead stand on principle.  The Leftists cannot allow anyone to fill a seat in the house, senate and certainly not the presidency who cannot be bought under the paradigm of pragmatism.

Those genuinely standing for the first, simplest and most fundamental principle of Individual Liberty and Freedom must be destroyed…  not just destroyed politically but also in the minds of the common American voter… lest the Socialists lose their power.

Those who will fight to possible electoral defeat must be criticized, ridiculed and ostracized by not just the Leftists in the Democrat Party but also those Leftists in the Republican Party.  The Media is always ready and willing to help in this effort… lest they lose their power.

You must understand this.  If you are Free then you must constantly remind those occupying government that you are allowing them to use some of your money, not the other way around.  Otherwise, they will be coming for your money… or in their mind… their money that they have lent you.  And they will use Force to get it… that’s what taxation is.  Which is why you go to jail if you don’t pay up.

You must also understand that we should never be excited for politicians to “get along” and “get something done”… There is a reason they call each other the “opposition” and it’s a GOOD reason.  You should always be very afraid when they “come together” for your supposed benefit.  Because it never is.

So don’t be afraid to put Boehner, Ryan and the rest of them on notice.  And if they don’t listen start sending your campaign donations directly to primary candidates opposing them.  The future of our country depends on it.

Cheers…

I Hate the Way Washington Works!

So we have to keep electing people who know how Washington Works and can Work that Way!

This is what is currently passing for logic.

Make no mistake, the Republican Establishment have a vested interest in convincing you that Non-Establishment Republicans are terrible, terrible human beings… and you MUST support Establishment Republicans because only They know how the System works in D.C.  Of course they will leave out the fact that they are Responsible for how the system works in D.C…

So the Current line, like the latest one offered by Time Magazine (I know, I know… yes, they are still around.), is trying to convince us that Republicans such as Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Scott Walker et al. will destroy the Republican Party.  Time is still pushing the idea that Ted Cruz’ filibuster trying to push a one-year delay of the employer mandate, which the administration did anyway, led to a government shut down (A shut down that nobody noticed, so the Obama Administration executed the ‘Monument Plan’ in which they roped off open air monuments trying to prevent access to the public… remember that?) which caused horrible things to happen to all of us.  By the way, nothing happened to any of us.

Anyway, In every Wild Accusation there is an element of truth…

Let me ask you, if you don’t like the way Washington Works then what about the Established Republican Party is Worth Saving? Why not destroy the parts we don’t like and build on the parts we Do?

Clearly the Establishment Wing, and Democrats who are used to getting them to do exactly what they want, are not interested in Destroying those parts of the Republican Party… because THEY ARE those parts of the Republican Party.

Folks, anytime a Liberal Media outlet, which is pretty much all of them, tells you that you should choose one person or another person lest you’re going to lose everything and the sky will fall, you should immediately suspect a ruse. The Leftist Media has no interest in Republicans being successful, ever.

And sadly, most of the Republicans have no interest in being successful either, at least not in any way We would define Success. Well over 80% of the Republican Party now in office is far from interested in Limited Government let alone Freedom and Liberty of the Individual. They just want to be the ones controlling the money so they can spiff their families, friends and donors.

For those of you thinking that is an endorsement of ANY Democrat, pull your head out. 100% of the Democrat party is interested in the very same thing, and they will do whatever it takes, including telling you which Republicans “stand the best chance” to win, to keep their power and continue to push their Socialist Utopian Dream thus leaving them in charge forever.

The only difference between Every Democrat and a Majority of Republicans is the ones with a “D” behind their name talk about their genuine Marxist beliefs behind closed doors… the Republicans are so stupid they fail to realize those are the same beliefs they are supporting.  I’m not sure what Establishment Republicans talk about behind closed doors, maybe that they were invited by a prominent Democrat to lunch?  Who knows?  Frankly I don’t care so long as we work to replace them with Non-Establishment Republicans.

So back to the point…

It’s exactly those Republicans who you are hearing the greatest number of “bad” things whom you should be most interested in. And the odds are you should also be voting for them and giving them money.

If they’re being made fun of, you should probably read for yourself what they are saying.  Odds are it’s not what being reported.

They, the Evil Non-Establishment Types who are “Peeing Inside the Tent”, are the ones who will stand any chance of changing things as they are.

The Republicans making enemies are the ones who need our support.

The Battle is within our own Party.

And those who like things as they are know it.


“You Already Got Your Tax Increases…”

“…And All of us Feel it.”

(I’m bringing this post back because we’re all about to submit our 2013 taxes.  Most of us will see our taxes go up.  While certain Establishment Republicans are actively trying to negate the Sequester cuts which were the only element of fiscal responsibility to have occurred in the past 10 years.  I just want you all to think about the additional money you’ll be sending to Washington while Washington tries to protect Their ability to Waste it.)

This should be the only sentence spoken for the next week by Republicans.  (It was not….)

No matter what defense is offered up by the Liberals, the above line should be repeated by every Conservative who jumps in front of a camera.

We should also demand that sequester happens.  Simple.

For those of you who are afraid of the mandatory “cuts” because they may effect Defense… I will remind you that Money is Fungible.

FUNGIBLE
Definition
fun·gi·ble
ADJECTIVE 
1. tradable under contract: describes commodities that can be traded or substituted for an equal amount of a like commodity, usually to satisfy a contract
NOUN 
fun·gi·bles   plural
1. something traded or substituted: a commodity that is fungible   (    often used in the plural   )   
[ Late 17th century. <  medieval Latin fungibilis <  Latin fungi “perform” ]
fun·gi·bil·i·ty NOUN
What this means is that money can be moved around by the agencies from other programs deemed less important by Defense Administrators.  Don’t be fooled… yes the cuts may be “across the board”, but they do not prevent those in charge from moving money around to Preserve/Save those programs and operations they believe to be integral to our security.
They will scream.  They will Cry.  They will Stomp their Feet.
They will tell you that the Sky will fall, the Terrorists will win and Global Warming will kill us all.
But you must understand… they will act as if the world is ending because their budgets WILL be cut.  (Think about a  child who has ten lollipops and you take one away… it will scream bloody murder and cry for days.  Similarly, once the Government has your money it believes it’s theirs to be wasted as they see fit.)
Don’t fall for this Artificial Emergency.
Let me ask you, Isn’t a government that pays attention to how it wastes our money what we all want?
Well this is just a start.  (Yes, I would have preferred to begin with out of control entitlements but this will have to do.  I’m no fan of waste whether it’s entitlements or defense… or anywhere else.)
So let it go…  don’t succumb to the hype… and remind everyone you see that they are paying more in taxes even though they thought their “friends” in Washington were only going to “hurt” the rich… Surprise!  Then let them know their “friends” want to make it even worse.  And remind them that all of this was Obama’s idea.  Then, remind them that “Yes We Can, Cut our Way to Prosperity!  Yes We Can!”  Just like they do at home… and are having to do right now, now that their taxes are going up thanks to the people they voted for.
For once he should be a victim of his own bad ideas… even though it’s not the worst idea, and certainly not the one I would choose for him to be a victim of.  I would probably start with a little redistribution sprinkled with Obama Care finished with a heavy dose of “Fairness” as defined by me.  Anyway…
This is one of those times when the best thing to do is nothing.
Because… “The Democrats already got their tax increases.”

The Establishment Strikes Back!

Or, John Boehner and Paul Ryan Surrender.

A budget deal was reached in the House of Representatives which effectively undoes the progress to reduce spending made with the recent Sequester cuts. It allows the Liberals to spend yet more money we do not have. It concedes the argument that we must reign in spending or our Country is doomed to the running leap over the fiscal cliff we are sprinting towards as this post is being tapped out. It gives more time to collapse the economic system now in place so the Socialists can rebuild it in their image…

There are only two reasons this could have happened.

The Republicans agree with the direction the country is heading.  Because 100% of the Democrat Party and 80% of the Republican Party are Ideologically Identical.

or

The Republicans believe the unwashed masses are too stupid to distrust the Liberals in the press when they predictably paint the Republicans as responsible for everything from your indigestion to government shutdowns.

Most likely Both.

Paul Ryan: “I deal with things as they Are.”  (A truly Visionary statement designed to revolutionize the way Americans look at government and return us to a fiscally responsible path if I ever heard one.  He also states that “As a Conservative, I deal with the situation as it exists.” Pardon me Mr. Ryan but what new definition of “Conservative” says one must deal with the situation as it exists?  That is certainly not an Ideology.  That is certainly not a firm Philosophical Foundation.  So what the Hell are you talking about?  Have you decided to embrace Populism?  Pragmatism?  Social Democracy?  Mob Rule?  Progressivism?  Please stop insulting us.)

John Boehner: “(Those who oppose this deal) are using the American People for their own purposes.  This is ridiculous.”  (What “purposes” might those be Speaker Boehner?  “They” are already siphoning off money from the RNC, correctly so in my opinion, and aside from using your Bipartisan compromise with Leftists as an illustration of your anemic, if not absent, commitment to returning Us to the Shining Light on the Hill  I don’t get your point.)

Folks, if you haven’t started paying attention yet, it’s time.

You all need to start drinking about this stuff.


Primaries! Primaries! Primaries!

Frankly it’s the only tool we have to cast out the Demons of Socialist Thought from the Republican Party.

There can no longer be any denial… it’s not that some of the Republicans are “weak”, it’s that they agree with the Progressive Liberals.  They only pretend to oppose the Left and then only when it’s politically harmless.

You must also understand that Leftists like Harry Reid, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and John McCain Mean It when they call you Terrorists. They mean it because anything that stands against Socialism stands against the America they envision as “better” and “fair”. They long for an America where they are called upon to remain in control… of everything and everybody… forever.

Why? Because you are too stupid to make decisions for yourself. You are too stupid to handle the Freedom and Liberty the Founding Fathers intended you to have. You are too stupid to make the decisions Harry, Barry, Nancy and John think you should be making.
You are… Just… Too… Stupid.

A Truly “Historic Compromise” has been made today. Our Leaders have decided to fully commit to our free fall into the Fiscal Abyss… because “it’s the right thing to do”.

Brilliant!

I would say I’m disappointed… but that simply doesn’t describe what I’m experiencing.

I would say I’m angry… but that doesn’t really describe what I’m feeling.

I suppose I would have to say I’m motivated… because the level of passion I have for the removal of individuals like Lindsey Graham from office is palpable.

Don’t fool yourself, this is a Huge Victory for the Left. And I don’t blame the Democrats… at least they’re somewhat honest about the Communal Paradise they wish to impose.

I Blame McCain, King, McConnell and the tribe that follows them.  They are nothing more than Leftist Progressive Socialists who believe if they tell you they love the Country, Constitution and are genuine Republicans loud enough and long enough you will believe them.  So far, they’ve been right.  You have.

But unlike these people, I do not believe you are too stupid.  I think you just don’t pay attention because you either have other things you believe are more important, or you don’t think it matters anyway.  Well, we’re all about to pay for that inattentiveness.  It’s headed for us like a freight train… and you will have nobody to point a finger at but yourself.

Now is the time to Makeaneffort and run people against these imposters.  Nothing could be more important.

There is no better way to get a point across than to publicly force them to spend their money defending their Leftist activities while risking their elected office.  And that’s what Primaries are all about.

Repeat after me…

“Primaries, primaries, primaries!”


The Party of Giving…

…versus The Party of Taking Away.

This is how the Democrats have positioned every argument during the Obama Administration.

The Liberal, Progressive Socialists have worked their way into power by doing nothing more than giving away stuff. They claim this is compassionate… caring. They claim it is “just” and “fair”. They will do anything to claim a moral high ground. But they will purposely never solve any problems.  Which is why President Obama cannot allow respected individuals like Bob Woodward or Wolf Blitzer to remind people the proposed “cuts” were the Presidents idea, and were included in the budget deal at his insistence.  After all, Liberals listen to these media figures… and believe them. It is also why President Obama will not take control, which has been offered by the House Republicans, of what cuts should occur. The Democrat Party, and President Obama, absolutely cannot be seen as taking anything away… ever.  Dependency is what the expect.  And they have been incredibly successful.

Instead of risking they could be labeled as doing the fiscally responsible thing, they will find people who believe their taxpayer-funded employment, or taxpayer-funded unemployment, is a right… an entitlement.  They will put these people in front of a camera whether on their favorite news and opinion shows or your local newscast.  They will let these folks tell you how difficult their lives are… due to the feared, or newly enacted “cuts”.  Nobody will question what their lives were like prior to the “cuts” or whether the “cuts” actually effected them in away way.  There will be no real investigation.  Rather, the dutiful media will nod their collective heads in somber despair over the plight of these individuals.  Keep in mind, the talking heads wont do anything to help them… but they will definitely “feel their pain” and hope that you do too.  It is an important aspect to remember that such people can always be found… everyday… all the time.  But Alinsky teaches us that you never roll them out unless you can create the perception their plight is the responsibility of your enemy.  Only then do you seek them.  Only them do you engage them.  Only then do you showcase them.  Identify the problem (“cuts” to government spending), Freeze it (give it the name “Sequester”), and personalize it (find some “victims” and put them in front of everybody.).

So goes the Liberal Theater of Givers versus Takers.

Didn’t it strike you as strange the reaction from the Left just a few months ago when the Conservatives started identifying themselves as the Makers… and those addicted to government as the Takers?  The screaming could be heard as far as Greece.  This was because the message of Makers vs. Takers was damaging the Progressive Liberal brand.  They cannot allow their identity of the “Givers” diluted in any way.  Certainly not to be replaced by the label of “Taker”.

So as usual, the most effective messaging is discarded by those fiscally responsible for the stuff the Democrats believe is their right to give away… us.  “We just don’t want anyone to think we’re mean…”

Well, this country is self-destructing.  It’s time to get mean.

It’s time to be confrontational.  It’s time to stop wringing our hands and do the adult thing.

It’s time to take things away.  Take away those things that should never have been given… especially by those who had no right to give them.

If they want the Party of Taking things away then we should give it to them.  We have no choice.

When you borrow 46% of every dollar just to pay for what you’ve given away SO FAR you are in deep, deep trouble.  In this respect The End is truly Near… it wont be sudden.  Our current path of demise will be slow and painful… and ugly.

In case you need any more eveidence… You have the Mayor of New York stating openly what I have said for years; that your money is worthless.  His quote was “the United States has an infinite amount of money…”  which is exactly the same thing.  When you have an “infinite” amount of anything it is worthless.  When he goes on to say that lenders will always give us more money to spend… when in truth we, the United States, are buying our own debt through accounting tricks exactly because foreign governments are not lending us more money, we should all be very frightened.  We should be frightened not just by the fact that we are having to play games with the numbers which would land any one of us in jail, but that the Mayor of one of our largest Cities doesn’t see the Evil associated with the fiscal destruction of the United States.

It’s time to stop allowing the word “revenues” to be substituted for “higher taxes”.  It’s time to stop allowing these people to manipulate us through the fabrication of artificial fires and tales of Apocalypse.  It’s time to bring every debate back to the fiscal survival of the United States.  It’s time to cease allowing Leftists to control the language.

It IS a battle between the Makers and the Takers.  There is 47% of the population that pays NO Federal income tax.  Liberals/Progressives/Democrats are, in fact… by definition… Socialists.  Jeffery Immelt of GE and others like him are Fascists.  This is not a “crazy” rant, this is a plain statement of fact.  Words have meaning, and the meaning is there for all those intellectually honest enough to look them up.  Only the ignorant, or those suffuring from denial, can be offended by these terms…

So the only genuine questions we are left with are:

Will someone, somewhere, lose their government job they feel they’re entitled to?  Yes.  Will someone, somewhere, not get the government contract they feel is their right to have?  Yes.

Will these people be able to spin a tale of despair and misfortune?  Yes.  Just as any addict can… and does when his drug is cut off.

We are about to see a flood of people who, whether they recognize it or not, are addicted to government come out and talk about how they will not be able to go on living.

I feel sorry for these folks and wish them a speedy re-entrance into the private sector which is the engine of prosperity driving the freest country on the face of the planet.

I hope all of us are quick to give them sympathy, and just as quick to remind them that they in conjunction with decades of politicians they supported are to blame for their situation.

We must break our populations addiction to “Free” Stuff, or this country is doomed.

Our voices must be loud!  We cannot allow bullies like Chris Mathews, Rachel Maddow, Predient Obama et al. kow us into submission.

Get ready… cuz’ here it comes.
