Why do those Escaping the Evils of Socialism….

…want to turn the place they escape to into what they escaped from?

 

While I happen to agree with the Fascism charge… is it ‘racist’ to disagree with the Oppression, Despair, Destruction and Death directly tied to the ideology of Socialism?

No, it is not.


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


Keeping You A Useful Idiot for over 100-years…

I can attest, it is a dark day when you wake up and realize that you are the useful idiot you have been warning everyone about.

My epiphany happened about 25 years ago.

For the vast number of you, it hasn’t happened yet.

And that’s why we’re here…

Ask yourself “What if I am a useful idiot?”

I know… an open-minded, brilliant, independent, thinker such as yourself can not be swayed by those who wish to “pull one over on you”. You “see” what’s going on. You “Get it”.  It’s everyone else that’s the problem.

You might be right.

But you might not be…

Let’s talk about just a few of the ways those in power keep you ignorant and pliant. Let’s consider how they play the game, and how you keep falling for it. Let’s think… about how you may not actually “Get It”.

Here’s Three prominent topics:

Gay Marriage, Reducing the Deficit and Keeping you Safe.

Once you understand it, it becomes easier to spot.  Those in Power frame an argument that you can never win, even when you think you have… because no matter the outcome, it keeps them in Power.

I know you fall for this because you’re “smart” and you “care”.  In fact, you’re so motivated to “educate” those ignorant of whatever plight you’ve adopted as important… you’re willing to misspell a sign, grab a corporate coffee and defile a park just to spread the word.

So let’s get started.

First up; Gay Marriage.

Whether you fought for the “right” to get married as a homosexual, or whether you believe marriage should be between only a man and a woman… you’re wrong. You’re being used. (read that again… and again if you have to.)

Okay Gay folks… you’re not fighting for a “right” to anything but begging some county bureaucrat to validate your marriage. You are begging some random fool to tell you that you are legitimate.  Haven’t thought about it that way? Well you should have. There’s no excuse for failure to think critically. Your marriage is none of the government’s damned business, period. The Government should never have had the power to determine who can and who cannot get married. It should be as insulting as it is abhorrent. (It’s get’s worse when you find out that the power to “grant” marriage licenses was born out of the racist inclinations of those powerful individuals of the past. Can’t have our kids marrying those blacks folks now can we. Did I fail to add disgusting?)

Okay you Only a Man and a Woman folks… many, if not all of you, would tell me to my face that Government is “Too Big” and involved in places “it does not belong!”. Well no sh*t. And this is one of them. The issue of who can be “married” and who cannot is strictly between you and your church. Period. Government has no place determining whose marriage should be valid and whose should not. It’s none of their damned business. And… it’s none of yours unless you’re the one getting married… in your church. And if you don’t like it, change churches. But the only action Government should be involved in when it comes to marriages is recording the civil union contract if the parties desire.

Here’s what’s truly amazing as it has to do with both of you folks, you’re both useful idiots. Why?

Because both of your arguments retain Government Power as the ultimate decider. And being the decider is all those in love with Government Force want and need. You are being played.

Next up; Reducing the Deficit.

This one you’ll hear repeatedly during election years. One or both of the candidates will first promise to “reduce the deficit”. Do you know what that means? Clearly most of you do not. It means they are promising to reduce THE SPEED that we are racing to the cliff of fiscal oblivion, ie. the point at which money means nothing.

This often morphs into “I will balance the budget!”, which is equally stupid and embraced by those brilliant, independent, thinkers filling the useful idiot space. We are over 20-Trillion Dollars in Debt. I don’t care who you are… you cannot conceive the size of 20,000,000,000,000. Your mind is not designed to wrap around such an absurdity. A “balanced budget” is as equally absurd as it is meaningless.

But no matter which side you fall on, keeping you useful requires you lapping up such pabulum.

The only effort that has any meaning is reducing the actual Debt. Not reducing the growth of the debt… or even halting the growth of the debt. The only strategy, which is not idiotic, is faithfully reducing the National Debt. Period. But how useful would you be if you limited, or even better yet rolled back, the ability of politicians and bureaucrats to spiff their Friends, Families and Donors with not just your money, but the money from your Great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandchildren?

So, you will hear them use the words “Deficit” and “Debt” interchangeably as if they are the same thing… and you will find yourself, and those around you, shaking your heads enthusiastically because you, my friend, are a brilliant thinking, not easily fooled, smarter than your friends, useful idiot.

Finally, Keeping You Safe.

Again, no matter where you fall on this the odds are you’re wrong.

Those in power need you to believe it’s their responsibility to “Keep you Safe”.

By doing this they get you to concede every argument in their favor. You abdicate all power to the Government. You are the most useful of all idiots.  Only Veal enjoys such safety.  Are you Veal?  Would you like to be?

I will put this as simply as I can…

It is the Government’s responsibility to keep My Freedom and My Liberty Safe.  (Yours too.)

It is My responsibility to keep Me and My Family Safe.  (Again… goes for you too.)

In other words, I and I alone will decide what kind of car I should drive… if a family vacation to Syria is a good idea… if eating free range, cage free, bran muffins is the secret to good health and fulfills my responsibility to Mother Earth… if my family of 15 needs a One Bedroom House, or a Shoe… if I need to have a gun to defend myself and my family… if I prefer one doctor over another… if I need to read the Bible, Ayn Rand or the Audacity of Hope, every night before bed.

My Freedom and My Liberty require the acceptance of a certain level of Danger… a Danger which I alone must be responsible to defend against.

Government, whether it’s the Police Department, Fire Department, Sheriff, FBI Agent, NSA Agent, Lehman Brothers Lobbyist or the friendly EPA Global Commons Communist, are all SECOND RESPONDERS.

You… you… you… are the only “First Responder” in your life.  Only you are “on the scene” when you need you.

Nothing is without cost!  So buck up and fight for your Freedom and Liberty while providing for your Safety.  Or, join the Society to have Government Treat People like Veal.  I hear they have super-fun meetings.

If you fail to understand the above then you are in need of waking up.

Don’t be an Idiot.  But if you have to be… don’t be a Useful one.

I could go on and on… Global Climate Change, Immigration, the Welfare System, Socialized Medicine, Voter Rights, etc. etc. etc.

And I have.  It’s all in here somewhere.  Look for the search bar.  Makeaneffort.

4 out of 5 Socialists Recommend Controlling Speech

In a Recent unscientific Survey 4 out of 5 Socialists said they believe Offensive Speech should be Controlled.

Rather than stand on Principle and cast Sunshine on supposedly ‘deadly’ speech expressed in newspapers, television and the internet thus allowing All if Us to condemn it…  Our Government prefers to sidestep that argument and ask for Increased Control of all methods of expression.

Why?

Because controlling Speech is an important weapon employed by those in power to remain in power.

Think about it this way; If you’re doing things people hate you for, what better way to avoid their anger than to make sure they never know about it… and if they do find out, you can tell them whatever you want while making sure nobody can challenge your hogwash.  If anyone tries to shed light on your crappy behavior anyway… send some Force their way.

Brilliant!

Of course you need to convince enough people these controls ‘are for their own good’ or, in pure Irony, ‘to safeguard Free Speech’.  Those that support you, for whatever unimaginable reason, will nod in agreement.  They might even grab a Starbucks, Stop Bathing, Misspell a Sign and Sit in a Park.  Get enough Useful Types like these and you’ve inoculated yourself against all those who recognize the danger you represent.  Machiavelli would be Proud.

We are seeing this play out right in front of us.

New Controls are being created for the Internet.  Last time I checked the Internet has done pretty well without them…

It Keeps getting Faster…  It Keeps getting Better… all by Private Means.

But it represents all that Socialists believe is Evil.

Free Speech.

And that cannot be tolerated.

If you can’t make fun of someone’s Faith, what Can you make fun of?

And since Socialism/Populism/Liberalism often serves as Religion for Atheists… it’s not even a jump, leap or reach.

By the way, the Fifth Socialist who didn’t Approve of Controlling Speech is having his Mind made Right by the other 4 as I type this out.


The Devil’s Promise

Creepy Backroom Babies 2014

Freedom and Liberty without Consequence and Responsibility. – The Devils Promise

A Promise of Infinite Freedom and Liberty to do as he says… live as he wishes… exist if he desires.

Last night a friend of mine asked “Why can’t we just go to work, come home and not worry about anything?”

I was disappointed and sad.  I simply assume the people I surround myself with understand the value of their Liberty and the necessity to defend it at all times.  This is my fault… and illustrates the lesson that these facts must be repeated over and over.

However, this is a common question.  It’s a question labeled ‘reasonable’ by those who want to keep you asleep until it comes time to secure their power or help them keep it.  It is a question built upon a premise that Evil does not exist and Evil People are not being born this very second.  And, those who peddle niceties are in fact nice.  It is a question which is more of a plea to trust, a cry of despair, that life is too hard to shoulder the constant burden of skepticism and responsibility for ones actions.  It’s the soft mindset that incrementally leads to slavery.

What do I hear when someone asks this?

I hear their desire to give up… surrender… lose… their Freedom by abdicating their responsibility of protecting it to those who pine for control over others.

I hear apathy, ignorance and ambivalence regarding the Freedom and Liberty they currently enjoy…

I hear a person who has no ability to empathize with those who are oppressed and do not enjoy their same Freedoms.

It is the absence of contrast… wisdom built upon experience… which disables otherwise able minds.

If you’ve been around here for a while you already know that one of my top 12 reads is ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ by Frankl.  At the end of the book he suggests there should be a Statue of Responsibility on the West Coast mirroring the Statue of Liberty in New York.

I happen to agree with Mr. Frankl’s brilliance and insight based on experience.  (For any of you who want to understand more about anything… ever… you need to read this book.)

Being Free is a Huge Responsibility.  It takes energy, effort and thought.  It requires the ability to be honest with one’s self and willingness to suffer the consequences of one’s action without projecting blame upon others.  It necessitates seeing the world as it is, not as you might wish it to be.

To be a Citizen of the United States, the only Nation on Earth to be founded upon the principle that the Individual was Paramount and his possessions, including his person, were to be protected above all other things, places the responsibility of remaining Free on each and every one of us, every moment of every day.

Nowhere on this planet, at any time in recorded history, has the Ultimate Minority of the Individual Human Being been placed First… before Government… before the Majority…. before a Specific Religion.  We are it.

That is American Exceptionalism.

Because of the above fact, We’re the only ones who can protect it… not Government, or a King, or a ‘super smart person’, or a Nobel Peace Prize Winner, nor any other form of Leadership Committee big or small.  It’s us… just us… in a purely voluntarily cooperative effort.  No one anywhere in the World will come to our rescue should we fall.  Because no one anywhere else in the World agrees with us.  They have decided that the only viable forms of Government fall somewhere in the spectrum of Socialism; whether it’s Social Democracy, Theocracy, Communism, Oligarchy, Plutocracy, Fascism, Dictatorship… anything BUT a Constitutionally Limited Democratic Republic which puts the Individual first justified by Natural Law.

The Progressive World finds such an Enlightened Idea far too limiting.  The World prefers Force and Class Stasis… the World prefers Control.  Therein lies the Irony.  The Progressive World desire to take all of us back to divine right and the age of Monarchies.  They only wish they could figure out a way for the majority to vote them into permanent power.  They already know they are Smarter than you, they just want you to solidify it once and for all.  (Elections are such a nuisance… all that energy… all that money… could be used to force our brilliance upon the Masses.  Such is the Ego of the Devil.)

The Devil’s Promise is really; Do as I say and you will be Free… You have a right to your existence because I allowed it.

We in the United States are being conditioned in our Schools and through our Media to accept this… even support and promote this…

The ‘Why’ and ‘How’ are clear and simple to see for those who are capable of intellectual honesty.  We have done this to ourselves.  The history has been written for all who care.

It is also plain to see We have wandered far from the intent of our Founders…

We no longer own the fruit of our labor.

We no longer own our property.

We no longer own ourselves.

All we have left, which we know is genuinely ours, is what’s in our mind… and never shared.

Those who wish Control would take that from you as well… if they could.

Is it time to give up and pay the Devil his due?

‘Why can’t we just go to work, come home and not think about all this stuff?’

It would certainly be easier…

than being Free.

Bigots, Freedom and Cake

What is a civil rights violation?

In Oregon they have decided that denying a homosexual couple a wedding cake is a civil rights violation… in other words, forcing one individual to bake a cake for another individual is not a civil rights violation, according to this ruling.

Whose rights are being violated?  Or are Rights reserved only to Groups of People?

Recently a similar event surrounding wedding photo’s, taking place in New Mexico, perpetuates this line of thinking.  I’m sure there are more.

This should be a pretty simple, straight forward, problem to address.

If you want to refuse service to anyone, you can.  Why?  Because it is your right…. at least it should be.

But here’s the rub…

You then should have to endure my showing up outside of your establishment with camera’s and as much attention as I can muster.  Because it’s my right to condemn your behavior.  Publically.

This is how a Free society handles things.  But we have wandered far from a Free society.

So, If you want to be a bigot… discriminatory… racist… an a-hole… whatever… fine.  Look for massive amounts of attention focused upon you.  At least that’s what should happen.  So why doesn’t it?  What happened to not just ours’ but the media’s responsibility to shine sunlight on behavior that discriminates against the individual?

It has long been my assertion that news media is lazy… and biased.  The reason I say this is politicians regularly get away with abuses of power, unless they subscribe to anything resembling an ideology the press disagrees with, in todays day and age it happens to be Personal Responsibility associated with Individual Liberty and Freedom.

When U.S. Citizens are subjected to violations of their civil rights, in the above case being force to provide services to someone they wish not to, instead of the press bringing the power of sunlight upon the behavior being enough we are told we must seek Government Force.  Not to mention the press doesn’t want to have the expectation of performance to include a responsibility to address such problems.  Combine that with those among us who wish to control others embracing Government as being the only resort and you have the reason we are here today.

When WE stop correcting, addressing or at a minimum displaying actions that discriminate against the individual we abdicate our power to the state.  And it is impossible for the State to act in any way which “corrects” a problem that doesn’t diminish Individual Freedom and Liberty.  The State is FORCE.  And because of that, it should be avoided at ALL costs, not looked to as the Savior.

But we have been taught taking responsibility for our Freedom, Liberty and Safety is someone else’s job.  I know you have heard this… “The police are the First Responders” thus We the People are not supposed to confront criminals.  We are not supposed to confront bigots.  We are not supposed to confront racists.  We are told that our situation in life in someone else’s fault and by logical extension someone else’s responsibility.  We are programmed to believe Government is not just an answer, but Government is the only answer.

In the above case, the Press should have been the answer.  If this Cake Baker could have remained in business by refusing to Bake Cakes then, while a miracle, so be it.  But EVERYBODY should have known about it and it should never, never, never have arrived before a judge.  WE are the judge.  WE choose to not spend our money with a Cake Baker who, for whatever reason I don’t care, discriminates against individuals.

I Blame Us.  I Blame the Press.

As a result of our low expectations, desire not to get involved and abdication of our Personal Responsibilities to Government we have yet again lost an incremental amount of Freedom.

There isn’t much of it left.
