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.

Maybe Limousines and Hookers ARE the Answer to Stopping Climate Change…

Given the American Taxpayer is having their hard-earned money removed from them by the Federal Government and sent to Socialist Dictators and Thugs around the World in order to Stop the impending Global Apocalypse of Man Made Global Warming…

I’m opening my mind to the possibility that making sure said Socialist Dictators and Thugs having an endless supply of Limousines, Hookers and Blow could be the answer.

I admit I have been doubtful.

I’m inviting all of you to show me the light and provide me with the science I’ve been shamefully denying exists.

I promise to read it.

All of it.

 


On Being 13-year old Boys….

I typically don’t care about personal petty fights between semi-celebrities, but this one serves a purpose.

Glenn Beck and Milo Yiannopoulis are having a tiff.

Who?!

Right.

No worries… if you care enough you can look it up, or click on the link above.  But the names and personalities don’t matter all that much for what I’m about to offer.

Allow me to sum this up quickly:  Beck called Milo a “hurt 13-year old Boy”, and he may be right.  Milo called Beck a ‘Pontificating, Self Absorbed, Unaware Leftist attempting to elevate himself above others’ (my words as Milo uses a lot of them), and he may be right.  Bare in mind I like them both for different reasons.

What I’m interested in here is the ’13-year old boy’ comment.

Our politics and the approach to voters has been designed to appeal to 13-year old boys.

Some of us, for various reasons, were taught early on to craft messages that could be easily understood by 7th and no more than 8th grade educated individuals.  It has been the approach of mass media since mass media has been around.  And… it works.

The Left has mastered this.

I expect no one here will recall, but I have compared Lenin to reading the diary of a petulant 12-year old.  Agree or disagree, I’ve read lots, and lots, and lots, of him and that’s my take.

If you have read Alinsky… you will get the same feel.  From dedicating his most famous work to Lucifer… for the shock value (as he was making money at the time training Catholic Priests how to ‘Community Organize’ on the South Side of Chicago), to explaining the benefits of staging “Fart protests”.  (I kid you not.  Fart-ins.  But I will not do the work for you.  Makeaneffort.)

Even Abby Hoffman was clear in his communication to young Leftists that no one over 30 can be trusted.

The Socialists in this country have been treating their followers as 13-year old boys, well basically, forever.

It has given them full control over the United States.

So, in many ways, Beck is right about Milo.  (If you don’t follow Milo you are not paying attention.  Some of you know I have a list of people to pay attention to.  Add Milo to that list.  I’m not saying you should like the way he presents his opinions… but that’s the point here.)

Milo has taken, as I believe the entire Trump Campaign has taken, a page out of the Leftist playbook and is hammering them with it.  They are treating the voters like they are 13-year old boys.

And… it is working.

You might be saying to yourself; “I Don’t want to be treated like a 13-year old boy!”

Me neither.  I consider myself closer to 11-years old in most ways.

But let me state this one more time…

IT’S WORKING!

I have to confess I have moved away from the Breitbart website as it has become the Everything Trump is Awesome site.  And I know, from his own words, that Andrew did not favor Trump.  But I think the tactic of using the Left’s Demeaning and Elitist Approach to Everything against them fits comfortably within a strategy Andrew would embrace.  In other words, I think Breitbart would be okay with what his heirs are doing as it relates to fighting an entrenched Socialist Establishment on both sides of the aisle.

Think about this for a moment, we see the media in this country claim the aura of superiority over you, the unwashed masses, by simply not acting like 13-year old boys.  I’m not implying they are smarter or better educated, I’m simply saying their positions of authority are based entirely upon talking down to you. The Press behave just like a 13-year old boy would… they act ‘older, wiser and more experienced’ when in fact they’re not.  They are that 13-year old boy that lies about having had sex and then goes on to instruct everyone else on how’s it’s done.

This is also true for the Elitist A-holes like our Progressive Political class.  It keeps them in charge.  They act as though they have the answers… but they have failed to solve a single problem… ever.  Not one.  Not Poverty, Not Equality, Not any single problem they have defined as needed fixing have they solved and they’ve been in control for almost 110-years.

But here’s what they know…

You don’t need to fix anything, you just need to act like you have the answers.  You need to act like you care.  The 13-year old’s will believe you.

They are taught this.

I know this to be true.  I have taught it.

Why?

Because… it works.

So if you’re going to allow them to get away with it then why shouldn’t we embrace these tactics when so much is at stake.

And that is the question, isn’t it?

Do you think there is any hope left of returning The United States of America to the brilliance it once held as the Greatest Experiment in Self-Government the World has ever known?

Or, have you given up?

For the record, I am an Ideological purist.  I’m not going to go into Trump or anything else beyond that in this post as there are over 1300 bits right here on this site which you look at on your own if you care.  The reason I’m stating it outright is I share many Libertarian traits with Beck… and Milo…  So, while Milo is acting a child, Beck is indeed a pontificating A-hole.

In the end, nothing can be worse than electing an Effectual Socialist (Hillary) to control over 1/3 of our government.  (Someone want to fight with me about ‘over’ the 1/3?  It’s not a mistake I tapped it out that way intentionally.)

Whether we like it or not, we are a Nation of 13-year old boys.  (Even the Girls.)

It’s right here in front of us;  the poor excuses passing for logic, the feelings over solutions, intent instead of outcome, the importance of looking cool and caring at the cost of genuinely helping, the demand of an allowance from your parents, the obsession with undefinable platitudes like Fairness and Love, the overwhelming drive to offend but never to be offended, the attempt to elevate ourselves above others by appearing smart when we are not and, of course, the potty jokes.  The fact we accept all, let alone any, of this illustrates what we face.

In the end, these two semi-celebrities are right about each other.  One is clinging to the approach of educating the public and bringing them to an elevated understanding of the world.  The other has that higher level of understanding, but is attempting to appeal to a constituency who has been fully indoctrinated by Leftists… not to be educated thinking humans… but to nurture their low self-esteem, to covet their victim-hood and… to respond favorably to potty jokes.

These two are on the same side in the end… and they should refocus their energy on the real enemy which is Socialism.

Leaving no insult un-turned is a Classic Leftist tactic.

It’s the Trump Campaign… and it’s working.

We just need to make sure we continue to use it on the right folks.

 

Melania 2016!


At some point you have to just Lay Back and enjoy it…

…well, I don’t think I’m quite ready to do that.

Donald Trump is a Fascist.

This is why he’s appealing to ignorant people from all parties. Notice I didn’t say Ideologies. And there’s the rub.

Donald Trump has no Ideology. He has no Principles. His Ethics are situational, meaning to say it depends on the situation and how it could benefit him.

This is serious stuff folks.

Either he needs to lose, or someone needs to get to him and ply him with the Founder’s Brilliance.  Stat.

Let me be clear…

Donald Trump is so bad that he has become a parody of all the ridiculous attributes the Leftist A-Holes have dreamed up to paint those of us who believe the Constitution is Correct as written.

Make no mistake, he is the demon product of the Republican Establishment. He is the spoiled milk on our cereal. He is the venereal disease of this election cycle.

The biggest problem Trump presents is his complete lack of any foundation when it comes to Governing Theory. I have more respect for Bernie Sanders as at least he admits to subscribing to Murderous, Genocidal, Dictatorial, Poisonous, Institutionally Nepotistic Socialism.

I get you’re pissed.

But put down the baseball bat and think for a moment.

Trump could very well find himself elected under the banner of ‘conservatism’ simply furthering the Left’s decades old campaign to keep the American Population confused as to what conservatism means. So successful would this be for the Progressive Liberal Elitists they would probably build monuments to his hair for the next thousand years… assuming they having starved everyone to death before then.  The Socialist sh*theads on both sides of the aisle are patient.  Get it?  If Trump wins… the Left wins… Big Government wins… and the Constitution loses… Forever.

I understand the hatred of the Established Republican Party. I feel it every waking moment of my exceptionally average life.  The RINO’s have had it their way for far too long. And because of that, and their cooperation behind closed doors with the Socialist Left of this country, and the confusion they have sown in the minds of us who genuinely care, we are where we are today.  I blame them.

But Trump is not an answer to anything save how to fill the 8p-9p time-slot when you’re out of people to vote off an island.

There is only one goal remaining for the country, and that is to return to the U.S. Constitution as written. That’s it. And Trump has openly admitted it’s not on his agenda.

If you’re voting for either Democratic Socialist… or the Fascist… you’re the problem.

And it is YOU who got us here.

If you’re not appalled that an Honest Socialist and a Dishonest Socialist can run for the Democrat Nomination to the highest elected office in the United States… let alone for Dog Catcher… you’re the problem.

If you can’t recognize that an Individual who lacks any semblance of a Moral Compass and has rearranged the letters from “Hope and Change” to read “We’ll Make America Great Again”… you’re the problem.

If you didn’t get the message from the last election cycle that WE ARE OUT OF TIME, because the U.S. Constitution had been abandoned, and by extension so have you… you’re the problem.

And if Trump wins, you better stock up on Astroglide.

I, for one, will not be laying back and enjoying it.  Instead, the only thing on my mind will be YOU… over and over and over.


Money… is Evil?

‘So you think that money is the root of all evil? Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which can’t exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them… Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?’ – FD


Congratulations Hillary!

In case you missed last night’s official kick off of the Political Primary Season in New Hampshire, Hillary took home a YUUUUGE victory.
Mrs. Clinton won her demographic soundly! Bernie has to be reeling today.

Within voters 65-years old and Older, who make over $200,000.00 a year or More…
Hillary won BIG, BIG, BIG!

So let me be the first, here at Makeaneffort, to congratulate the spry, non-establishment, candidate Mrs. Clinton on walking away with the muscular affirmation from her Peers.

Way to Go Mrs. Clinton! Keep up the good work!


I Too do not like New York Values…

I understand defending New York, but seriously?

Socialism is rampant in New York City. Even those few New Yorker’s calling themselves “Republicans” are Liberal Leftists.

In regard to the Towers, They are My Liberal Leftists and killing them will always be met with the most Extreme, Angry, Flag Waving, Gun Clinging, Military Dispatching, Terrorist Killing, that I and every other Individual Freedom and Liberty Loving Citizen of this Country can muster.  So get over yourself.  You don’t own the outrage.

In other words, Mr. Trump, I understand you defending New York. But the fact that you could only toss out William F. Buckley followed by a very, very, weak ‘among others’ is illustrative.

You know Ted is right… even Buckley, if he were here to say it, would announce how correct Ted is. Ayn would do the same. So would Milton Freidman and Murray Rothbard, “among others”.  (All of whom I’ve been holding out hope you’ve read…)  When your prominent Anti-Socialist, Conservative and Individualist Leaders in Thought refer to the place they reside as “The Belly of The Beast” it is not meant as a compliment.  They were on the ground, so to speak, and recognized the poison that is collectivism and the danger it poses all Americans first hand… in their own city.

So, to be able to pull out not even a handful of Anti-Socialists from over 8.5 Million people… which swells to over 13 Million Monday-Friday… makes Ted’s point.

It’s tantamount to stating Austin, Texas or Boulder, Colorado are bastions of American Capitalism and Rugged Individualism.

Frankly, Ted knows he has so few friends in New York City as it not to matter if he is insulting.

So the Only take away I get from your exchange with him is you are yet another Elitist who see’s the United States as New York and Los Angeles… with a bunch of sh*t in between you have to fly over.
