It has become clear to me that the total meltdown we are witnessing after the Trump Victory is due to a simple fact. The Democrat Socialists, in this country and world over, had no plan “B”. The Leftists had believed they had “won” in regard to wresting control of every governing apparatus in every country on Earth. It seemed their march to a One World Socialist Utopia no longer had any real opposition and all that remained was a jockeying for position within the power structure established to rule over it.
Now they are watching helplessly as their tireless drive to imprison us all under a single power is being dismantled.
A Few weeks ago there was an open letter being circulated reportedly from Georges Soros, the Financial Champion of Global Socialism, lamenting this latest turn of events. In that letter he speaks of Karl Popper being a major influence on his world view. That explains a lot.
While Popper is supposedly considered one of the “greatest” 20th century philosophers, I will leave that to you, I don’t share that view for a simple reason. Karl Popper wanted to be everybody’s friend. He is what we would today call a “Moderate”.
He believed, erroneously, that all the governing theories could be reconciled. In other words, Everybody could be right and we all could get along. On the face of this assertion it seems nice… to the point of flowery. However, it does not take a monumental amount of critical thinking to recognize that most of us do not share a sense of ‘fairness’ and ‘congeniality’ with Socialist Dictators and Thugs who have anointed themselves, their associates and family, with brilliance, sometimes even divinity, and view their role as one which is to ‘take care of the unwashed masses’.
On the site where I found the letter, again purportedly from Mr. Soros, a reader commented accurately pointing out the primary flaw in Popper’s idea was his subscription to Plato and what has been called Platonic Paternalism. (The reader then goes off the rails and promotes pure democracy… but at least he was half right.) This idea of Paternalism implies that we ‘elect’ leaders to take care of us… read that again… Take Care of Us… not just represent us. There is a vast difference in the two positions. These are profound differences which separate Representative Republics from Democracies. One necessarily requires Unlimited Government in the name of “taking care of the people”, the other requires Limited Government in the name of “Protecting Individual Liberty and Freedom”, thus making these two governing theories irreconcilable or ‘mutually exclusive’. You can not depend on someone else taking care of you and be “Free” in any meaningful sense of the word. And, inversely, one cannot be “Free” but not shoulder the responsibility of taking care of themselves, or suffering the consequences of their actions, without the promise by an individual with the power to force others to come to your aid or hold you unaccountable… as eventually it will be you who is forced to provide that aid or look the other way. (Again, as always, “Force” comes into play when speaking of functional Socialism.)
The letter also illustrated a view shared by all ‘educated’ Socialists. Free Market Capitalism protected by Limited Government which is protected by Transitory Power simply does not exist as a Governing Option.
It’s that simple folks.
The reason you will never be able to have a cogent conversation about Freedom and Liberty of the Individual protected by a Limited Government (America as it was founded) with a Democrat, and Frankly many of those calling themselves Republicans, is because they don’t see what you believe in as an option. It is not on the spectrum of their chosen reality. There is no room for it.
This explains some of the massive disconnect when trying to have an argument of ideas. You understand that the Oppression, Death and Destruction which is Socialism is in reality a Governing Theory, and it is available to all who want it. You get it. They, on the other hand, see no other option… none. Socialism is where it starts and stops, all that remains to fight over is what flavor of it ‘works’ and who’s going to be in charge.
When you hear Fascists and ‘Conservatives’ both being called “Right Wing”, this is why. Socialists do not acknowledge that your idea of Limited Government and Individual Freedom exists… so they have no where else to put you but in the far “Right” side of the Socialist Spectrum where there remains some semblance of private property rights (Fascism). To classify you outside of that spectrum is to admit there is an option other than the Soft Slavery of Socialism. That, to them, cannot be allowed.
There is no question their apple cart is being upended with Brexit, Trump and soon France, Germany, etc. But these are minor set-backs for people like Soros who are lamenting not the failure of their poisoned worldview but the fact they will not see its realization within their limited life span. The war for the Ultimate Minority, the Individual, has not been won. The Socialists have permeated the machine which is government world over. If we the people fail to understand why these ideas are like Oil and Water then the Individual is doomed.
The good news is because of the hubris found on the side of the Socialists there is a pin prick of light peaking in.
They have no plan “B”.
There is no fallback position in place, they have lost momentum.
There is hope… assuming the Forces of Individual Freedom and Liberty are ideologically united.
Will this be the age of The Great Renovation?

From the anals of Washington Elitist Government comes the latest in ‘How to get things done when the American Public is just too Stupid to understand‘.
This is why Cynicism is the Only, Constant and Always method to view those we elect… especially those we vote for.
Republican Leftist Paul Ryan has joined Democrat Leftist Progressive Nancy Pelosi in the Jonathan Gruber School of Governing with his latest demand that you will only be allowed to see what’s in the Obamatrade Act after your representatives Pass it.
I don’t believe you need to be reminded what a debacle Obamacare is… and getting worse. So I won’t.
Now we’re told that we are again too stupid to be allowed to see what’s in a sweeping, certainly not limited to what we would think is “trade”, Trade Act before we are all subject to it.
From what small snippets have been leaked, and adding together soundbites from the three people who have at least gone down to the Capital Dungeon to ‘read’ it, there is enough for everyone to hate. The Washington Elites would tell you “That’s how the sausage is made, and it represents a ‘Good Compromise‘.” I would offer it is also how fecal matter is made and represents the very same… just like Obamacare.
So we are told by a supposed “Conservative” that we must pass it to see what’s in it.
Clearly the Democrats who oppose it are not interested in ‘passing it to see what’s in it’… primarily because they are not at all sure they will hold the Presidency in the next term, and are not interested in the profound power which will be moved from the Legislative Branch to the Executive Branch.
And the few “Constitutional Originalists” we have left in the Conservative Movement (read ‘non-leftist’) who are still acting that way, oppose it because it will amount to several anti-capitalist results.
First, there can be little doubt that our allies in Europe have prolonged the Doom of Greece, and the Drowning of the EU, in the hopes that something in the deal Bails out their Socialist Union Scheme which many of us said would fail. We knew this back in the Nineties because people and nations lie… and always will… nothing is new under the sun. (Note: Jeb Bush is meeting with European leaders who are looking for reassurance should he become president that he would not interfere with this new, expected to be shoved down the throats of the American People, EU Bail Out/Trade Act.)
We must begin asking ourselves why American Tax Dollars should continue to go to bailing out Failed Socialist Schemes and the long-dead Socialist ideology those schemes are built upon. Reinforcing Oppression, Death and Destruction should not be a committment made by The United States of America. The Western Socialist Democracies need to be allowed Fail on their own so they will modify their behavior. They have survived at the teat of American Free-Market Capitalism (in what feeble form it exists) for well over 100-years. The time is Now to Stop Enabling Elitist Control and Class Stasis of Fascist/Socialist A-Holes. But it starts at home…
Second, there is little doubt that this ‘Trade’ bill will magically include Immigration Powers not before held by the Executive Branch. Just as the Commerce Clause has over time been perverted to mean just about anything, and everything, depending on what some person in power wanted it to mean…
Now it will be ‘Trade’. We have mechanisms in place to deal with immigration, but the survival of the Leftist Socialist-Fascist movement in this country depends on new government dependants. Whether these dependants are from other countries, or home-grown, doesn’t matter to the Socialists. As long as they get to vote… and vote for their redistributed ‘paycheck’, Liberalism survives.
Third, this Act will certainly create the very same type of Socialist Symbiosis represented by the European Union and carry with it the very same ‘certain to fail’ model. Just like Obamacare destroying the finest Medical system on the planet, why do we do this to ourselves? The answer is simple. The Socialists believe that it’s not the failure of their ideas. Rather, it’s that their ideas have never been allowed to catch up to the wild success of Self Determination and Free-Market Capitalism (in what feeble form it exists). They continue to fully subscribe to centralized control while anointing themselves Philosopher Kings. It truly is a Fatal Conceit.
Sure… if you’re Leftist Progressive you might think this is super cool. But once you think past the Trees and see the Forest (Something most Liberals are intentionally never taught to do) you clearly see that these powers are assigned to the Executive Branch, not just Liberal leftist Socialist progressives when they hold the Executive Branch. Thus the push back from the Leftists… and frankly, a main reason the Leftist Light Republicans support it.
The United States is now run by those who seek to protect Government from us, not protect us from Government.
Are we going to allow Jonathan Gruber to be correct when he says “The American People are too Stupid to know what’s going on.”?
We proved him right not long ago with Obamacare…
