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.

Bipartisanshitt

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…

An Open Letter to Frank Luntz

Or, why the Left Hates Logic.

Frank Luntz of Focus Group Fame, Displayed his Establishment Credentials several nights ago by once again informing all of us that The American People want Politicians ‘who can cross both aisles and unite the government to get things done.’

This is where supposedly intelligent people display their ignorance of, or complete disdain for, Logic.

All Giraffes are Animals… but not all Animals are Giraffes.

I would like to take this opportunity to address Mr. Luntz directly.

Dear Mr. Luntz,

No, Many of us out here are not interested ‘In Getting Things Done’ if it means continuing down the path of Socialism.

I will take the liberty and speak on behalf of many of us out here.  The Politicians we ‘want’ are those that STOP the seemingly ceaseless slide into Democratic Socialism.  The Politicians we ‘want’ are those that care less about their Party and more about the Constitution of the United States.  The Politicians we ‘want’ are those that are more concerned about protecting Us from Government than protecting Government from Us.

Sir, I recognize we are a minority in the World.  However, I would offer that this is what makes The United States of America Exceptional.

We were created as a bottom up Government.  We were built upon a Governing Theory placing the Individual as Paramount.  We are a  country where the Freedom and Liberty of every single Human Being is supposed to be Sacred above all else.

I wish to return to that Paradigm of Enlightened Brilliance.

We have wondered far afield from the Founders intent.  We have been overrun by those Elitist Administrators who know they are right about everything without the trouble of demonstration or reflection. We have dishonored the Founders and Every Man who gave all to protect their Vision.

For all intent and purpose the Socialists have won.

That being said, Mr. Luntz, I do not wish for more of what got us here.  I do not wish for the perpetual growth of Crony Socialist and Fascist Government.  I do not long for Bipartisanshitt, Compromise and Handshaking between those I send to Government and those whose drive is to turn us into every other Social Democracy designed to Control their Populations from the Top Down.  I do not wish for a single Politician who fails to see Socialism for the Deadly Poison it is.

Mr. Luntz, I respectfully ask you to cease including me in the ‘group’ of those who want politicians ‘to get things done’.  I ask this because I strongly suspect what I wish ‘to be done’ is very, very different from you wish to be done.

Regards,

Mike

Do you Teach your kids to Compromise with Evil?

“There are two sides to every issue. One side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.”

This is a quote from Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged.

And, it’s correct.

The Left has spent an inordinate amount of time and energy demonizing the concept of “seeing things in Black and White”. (Followed quickly by telling you that you shouldn’t talk about religion and politics during “polite” conversation.)  The reason for this is Leftist Progressives know their victories depend on compromise, ignorance, or both, because their demands viewed outright, and understood, would always be rejected.

Socialists realize you must be “nudged” in the direction they want you to go… that is, when they lack the ability to Force you in that direction.

As Rand has explained, seeing things in Black and White has always been equated with seeing things in terms of Good and Evil. If you cannot see things this way then you have not spent enough time thinking about your premises… in other words, the foundation of exactly what you believe.  This exercise alone will clarify your thinking.  You might find yourself being a Socialist… hopefully not, but at least you will get closer to the truth.

Once you have given the proper amount of thought to an issue you arrive at the Right decision and the Wrong decision. Everything “In the Middle” is simply a compromise with the Wrong Decision.

This is why “Bipartisanshitt” and Moderates, such as Establishment Republicans like Paul Ryan, John McCain and Karl Rove, who wail “why can’t we all get along” are truly the misguided among us.  The Governing Theories of Individual Freedom and Control over the Individual are mutually exclusive.  They are oil and water.  They do not mix.  They cannot be mixed.

Compromise is why we are Broke and Printing Money as fast as we can.

Compromise is why past Congresses have run up the bill well past our ability to pay.

Compromise is why we are fighting against the last piece of the Socialist puzzle which is Obama Care. 

Compromise is why Government is in every part of our lives. 

Compromise is why the Government is listening to our phone calls and reading our mail. 

Compromise is why we have lost our Right to Privacy… and by extension, our Freedom.

Either Embrace Evil… or Reject it.  But don’t Compromise with it.

Getting Along has Got us Here.

Cruz believes in God!?

If you’ve been paying attention over the last 48-hours you have certainly heard that Ted Cruz is Evil for a Major Reason.

Senator Cruz believes in God.

And as a result, Mr. Cruz believes that the Creator endowed all of us with Inalienable Rights. In other words, our rights come from our Creator… not Men.

Well there you go.

Those who support the “educated” idea that our rights come from Man cannot allow such apostacy to be uttered without laser-focused derision being poured upon it.

Clearly, to them, Ted Cruz is an idiot because of such a stupid idea.

Well…

I too believe in unalienable rights being bestowed upon us by our Creator…

However, I do not believe one needs to believe in God to accept this as the Enlightened Ideological premise protecting all of us from Tyranny, Oppression and Slavery.

I have good company. Namely the Founding Fathers.

The Founders were of varied Religious beliefs.  Indeed, primarily Judeo-Christian.  But they have divisions even within those ranks.  The language chosen for the Founding Documents was crafted with extreme intent.  They knew full well that Locke’s idea of Natural Law is justified by a belief in a Creator, Nature or for that matter The Universe.  The simple fact a Human Individual exists is all it takes.  And, The United States was going to be the First… and sadly after 250-years still the only, country on Earth to overtly build a society based on this Revolutionary Enlightenment Philosophy.  That is why America is Exceptional.

To put it simply, this idea that all of us have certain inalienable rights just because We Exist is why the United States Stands Alone.

It is no surprise that there are those who scoff at such an idea.

Specifically, because this idea stands in the way of Force. It obstructs those who wish to control us… persuade us… nudge us… into the choices they have decided are, well, ‘best’ for us. It prevents them from Forcing the Few to Sacrifice to the Many. It is the enemy of Social Democracy… otherwise known as Mob Rule.

The Remarkable Idea that being born gives one rights that are not ‘allowed’ by edict from a benevolent ruler… or group… is a profound irritant to those who seek Power over You.

It is why many of us out here claim, without hesitation, that many of our elected politicians Hate the very Constitution they have sworn to protect.  Because they do.

How do I know?

The brilliance of the men who designed this country left us with a governing structure that possessed the mechanics to change it if needed…  Those who Hate the Revolutionary Statement embedded in the Founding Documents are not interested in this mechanism because it necessarily alerts you to what They want to do.

And if there were ever an Axiom… Those that want to do Bad things To You can Never let you Know they Want to do Bad things To You.

You wouldn’t like that.  (Which is also why the Founders made “The Right to Bear Arms” second only to “The Right to Free Speech”.)

All of this will help you identify those people with whom you should disagree.  At a minimum, hold suspect.

Be Warned!  These people exist on Both Sides of ‘the aisle’.

I would offer All Democrats (As their Governing Philosophy is built upon the Foundation of Marxism) as well as a Majority of Republicans (As many of them subscribe to flavors of Marxist Socialism but lie to you to get elected.).  This doesn’t even address those outside of the aisle such as the Independents, Greens, Socialists, Communists and all other segments of political spice.

In the End, I expect resistance, and the type of derision I mention above, to come from ‘all sides’ when it comes to men like Republican Ted Cruz.  I suggest you’ll see such rhetoric coming from Democrats AND Republicans when Republican Rand Paul announces.  (Paul subscribes to the same foundation of Individual Rights.)

They are men of Principle.

They are not men of “getting along” or “working together” when it runs counter to the Original Intent of Individual Freedom and Liberty and Fiscal Responsibility.

Don’t fall into this trap.

Don’t discount a person who holds your Individuality as sacred because they do, or do not, believe.

While it doesn’t hurt, you don’t need to believe in God to understand the Wisdom in protecting the Individual.

Dust off your Thomas Payne (Age of Reason) and tell me I’m wrong.


Will Boehner Retaliate?

Now that John Boehner has narrowly kept his Speakership, will he and his minions retaliate against those who were representing the people of their districts and voted against him?

Because that’s what he would be doing…

He would be retaliating against Us.

If this happens, does he think We will suddenly fall in behind him?

I would suggest that unlikely.

His best course of action may be to take this as a wake-up call and fly right. It’s well past time for more Constitutional Loyalty and less Bipartisanshitt.

But experience has shown us The Establishment Republicans will do the exact opposite of swinging back towards the Constitution…

We will see.

Update:  No need to wait long.  Boehner has now made it clear that he has no intention of listening to us.
