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


President Obama has directly Challenged Me.

In His latest TV appearance President Obama looked right at me then challenged me to state unequivocally “What I am For.”  He told me it is “My Responsibility”.  While it’s not up to him to define what “My Responsibilities” are…  he was speaking directly to me.  He didn’t even bother to hide the messages in the commercials like he usually does. So…

OK.

Mr. President,

I am For preventing a Government Take-over of 1/6th of the American Economy with the express purpose of destroying any hope for Choice, Competition and Free-Market solutions which are not only the sole protectors of our Individual Rights but the foundation of the once freest and most prosperous country on the face of the planet.

I am For a Government which abides by the Nations Laws as written and recorded for history in the Constitution of the United States.

I am For Freedom and Liberty of the Individual just as the Founding Fathers were.

I am For every Individual’s Right to Choose what is best for them rather than other people appointing themselves the Right to Force their world view upon us.

I am For the Government staying out of the Markets because when they do intrude we get Market Distortions like Banks being Forced to Lend people money who could never pay it back… Nationalization of Car Companies… Sky Rocketing College Tuition… Bail Out’s for Wall Street… and not least being the current destruction of Health Care.

I am For not doubling, tripling and quadrupling people’s Health Care costs.

I am For the People demanding a return to the Bottom Up Government this Country was, and still is, designed to be.

I am For calling Socialism what it is. Socialism.  I’m even OK with labeling what it really is… Communism Light.

I am For the Limited Government our Founders intended and calling out those who oppose this idea as Anti-American.

I am For a population which understands the Oppression, Destruction and Ultimately Death that Socialism brings to every place on Earth it finds support.

I am For politicians who vocalize the Suffering, Despair and Permanent Political Class all flavors of Socialism creates.

I am For not Printing Money just so you and your Ideological Ilk can Spend what we do not have.

I am For creating Private Sector Jobs by the simplest of solutions… that being getting the Government out-of-the-way.

I am For Repealing, Rolling Back and Dismantling all of the Socialist Schemes that brought us to the point.  All of them.  If we can’t do that, then Privatize them.  No exceptions.

I am For everybody having the Opportunity to follow their dreams… not you deciding who is allowed to do so and who is not.

I am For education which is honest about Statism and its demonstrable failures world over.

I am For teaching Capitalism rather than perverting it or best case omitting it all together.

I am For our representatives, especially the Chief Executive, respecting why this country was founded and what has made it great.  Then I Hope for the Change needed to return us to the shining light on the hill instead of Socialists bent on destroying it in the names of “Fairness” and “Justice” when they really mean Control.

I am For Democrats, and Many Republicans, being honest about their passionate desire to hold the Power of Force over the American People.

I am For Politicians being called out, chastised, demonized and shamed when they make televised Speeches which play on the ignorance of the American Public.

I am For Media Outlets willing to do the above.

Sincerely,

Mike

P.S. I know, if you’re honest, you will disagree with all of these things.  I expect the IRS targeted Audit… I’m sure the NSA knows where to find me.


Doing Less is Doing More… versus 1984.

A Government Doing Less is A Government Doing More not to infringe on your personal Liberty and Freedom of Choice.

It is also serves not to undermine your self-reliance, and thus your self-esteem.

Ever wonder why there has been such a concerted push to make our children “feel good about themselves” simply because they show up to school?

Our public schools focus on this because, it’s an integral characteristic for them to possess in order to ultimately accept that their self-worth is not connected to their independence and self-reliance. It is an important mindset for them to have if they are going to cheerfully welcome the State, or “someone else”, providing everything they should need while simultaneously directing their every action…

It is conditioning.

And, it is destructive in every way.

Now the DHS is demanding information regarding citizens biological information.

They want it all… which should make the front page of every paper and the lead for every news cast. Why would DHS need this information to do their job? (Even more important… what exactly is their job? Don’t give me platitudes… be specific, Because I’m not sure.)

I have stated it often, and I will once again… Your Freedom is Directly Correlated to You Ability to Live Your Life Anonymously.

How is that going?

Why are we constantly expected to give up biological information about ourselves to our Local Law Enforcement? DHS? IRS? Elementary Schools? Etc?…. How on earth is this information vital to their providing you their service?

It is a slow conditioning process allowing all of us to become more comfortable with no longer being Anonymous.

We seem to cheerfully accept such demands… as we have been taught to do.

The common retort you will hear when bringing up this topic is “What’s the big deal?”. “They need it to take care of us!”  or “What are you afraid of?”… Instead of “Why do they need it?”.

Our goal should be to keep government out of our lives.

That means we need to start taking personal responsibility to solve problems or issues as we identify them.

In other words, stop expecting someone else to deal with it… if it’s broken, fix it yourself.  If you are “being taken care of”, you are not free.  If you are “being kept safe”, you are being Kept.

But in the end…

It is my opinion that “fairness” is what always gets in the way of our preserving our Freedoms.   (This is why that platitude is forbidden in my home.)

“It’s not Fair that I am always the one solving the problem… that I’m the one with the shovel.” Well… tough sh*t. There will always be those who will do nothing… and their lives will suck as long as we don’t allow our elected officials to reward them for their sucking.

If it takes me out there solving my problems, or protecting myself, with a spoon instead of a shovel that’s what I would prefer in order to remain free.

That’s what I will do to live my life Anonymously…
