Why do Socialists Hate Capitalism?

(Archive Diving)

So why does the Left, Progressive, Democrat, Liberal Socialist hate Capitalism so very, very, much?  (I don’t like having to use so many terms, but every time we figure out who these people are they change their name.)

They Hate Capitalism because it does not need them.

I’ve written about this is the past. Capitalism is the Default State of Economics. Capitalism appears in the hardest of Communist experiments. Mutually Beneficial Exchange bubbles up under the most horrific regimes.  There is always a War to stop it… but Voluntary Free-Trade cannot be stopped… ever.

This fact, that Free-Trade does not need Socialist guidance, makes them feel small in the Universe. It is a cold illustration of their value… and when you have an Ego that demands your “intelligence” be recognized, this is indeed a painful insult to suffer.

So, the self-proclaimed “Elites” among us have created, perpetuated, clung to, a governing theory that makes them feel good regardless of the historically demonstrable destruction left in it’s wake.

They have ignored, rewritten, re-phrased and changed the meaning of everything to protect the only system that permanently puts them in charge of everybody else.  I will remind you that this mindset is found across party lines… once you understand the definition of Socialism and it’s variants, spotting it is simple and you will no longer be fooled by “Democrat”, “Republican”, etc.

The reason I bring this up is that the election is upon us.  And if you think the Liberals will go quietly into the night you will be gravely disappointed.  There will be a screaming and gnashing of teeth rarely seen.  The Socialists have achieved almost all of what they have been working on for the last 100 years.  They will do anything and everything in order to preserve those gains.  The accusations will be loud, vile and repeated often not just by them but by their friends in the press.  All efforts to return the United States to a path of fiscal solvency and Free-Market principles will be met with claims of destruction, disease and death.  Should they lose their power… They will push, beg, plead, for “Bipartisanship”, “Cooperation” and “Compromise” to hold on to their gains and maintain status quo until they can wrest control of the government again.  And we have seen what happens when they have that control…

This is far from over, so don’t think you can just cast your vote and walk away.  If we are going to be the country the rest of the world looks up to, there will need to be a level of perseverance never before required of the electorate.  You will have to hold those you voted for accountable for the principles they espoused.  You will have to have a solid foundation to repel the arguments flung at you from the Left.  The Liberals will be desperate… and ruthless.  All the while accusing you of being both.

So it’s time for the Capitalists to move Forward!

Roll back the policies of the Past!  Save the Country from Bankruptcy!  Restore Individual Freedom!

We all know Free-Market Capitalism is the wave of the future.  It’s been 100 years… let’s give it a try again.  It will be painful, particularly for those who have built empires on Socialist policies.  It will also hurt the feelings of those who think they know better for you than you do.  But I can live with that.  Let’s bruise some Ego’s.  Even the Leftists will be better off for it.

Calm Down

With the Inauguration of Donald Trump you have set the bar very high.

You have declared Trump a:

1. Racist
2. Homophobe
3. Misogynist
4. Fascist
5. Tyrant

It’s similar to President Barack Obama being awarded a Nobel Peace Prize based on what he Might Do. (As an aside; He didn’t Do.)

Your Media now has their job cut out for them. They will have to position Trump’s tenure to fit all of your above expectations and accusations.  But you can relax… your demands will most certainly be met.

So what happens if he turns out Not to be the above?

Don’t worry, there is always someone, somewhere, who will point to Trump as the Destroyer of Worlds. Your Press will find renewed energy to breathe life into their long deceased role as ‘government watchdog’… Trump will not suffer, as his predecessor did, from a lack of resistance.

But, you ask, what if he’s actually good, possibly… great?

Calm down… you can rest assured that any successes will be met with silence.

Remember your news source of choice, The New York Times motto:

Spotting an Elitist. -The EU edition.

(For my Scottish acquaintance.  121712)

About half way through my life I realized I had spent most of it trying to figure out who to believe.  In fact, I still spend an inordinate amount of time on this.  I have never required someone to agree with me to find them believable, trustworthy and interesting.  Actually, I find relief in surrounding myself with people who challenge my thinking.  If they are willing to do that, then they are willing to tell me the truth.

But I have come to some red flags, so to speak, which have saved me from a number of those who I call Elitists.  These are the people who most often don’t tell you the truth because they don’t know what it is.  However, they know whats best for you.  And you can’t trust them because they will do whatever they think they have to for your own good.  “The best of intentions” crowd.  They should all have tattoo’s on their foreheads reading “You need us.”

I don’t subscribe to the idea that there are a ton of truly sinister people out there purposefully lying directly to your face… why risk that when they can get the intellectually lazy Elitists to do it for them?  The genuine Leftists search out those people fitting certain criteria and then fill their heads with crap which they promptly go and spew on you with righteous entitlement.  We all know these people… they are the ones who are full of opinions they can’t defend and most importantly don’t think they should have to.  When asked, they resort to a myriad of rhetorical devices to make you feel ignorant, mean-spirited or both.

After decades of in-depth clinical research I have found these individuals can be grouped roughly as follows:

The genius by virtue of Geography. When I grew up/lived in/traveled to (fill in the blank) it makes me smarter than you.  – We all know this guy.  (By the way, I type in gender neutral.)  Simply due to the fact that he was born, lived or traveled through a specific place he is the most informed person on every issue regardless of topic.  The coastal areas of the U.S. supply us with a large number of these types.

The genius by virtue of Profession. – You can’t possibly teach me anything.  Many of us know these guys as well…  often they are professional in their field.  Stock Brokers, Doctors, Lawyers, Scientists, Cowboys whatever.  Since they have genuinely mastered a very specific area of complexity, they are geniuses in all things.  Often these types will view you as ridiculously uninformed while they themselves establish barricades to challenging information.  They interpret your respect of their accomplishments in their area of expertise as validation of their genius in all things.  I must disclose that a great many of my best friends are professionals but they do not suffer from this elitist mentality else they would not be my friends.  So don’t take offense you guys… you know who you are.

The genius by virtue of Caring. – There is nothing for me to learn that my heart doesn’t tell me and you are mean… and just dumb you dummy dumb-dumb…  These are the people we typically see at demonstrations of various types holding the peace signs… with flowers… and rainbows.  We can usually find nine or ten of these people occupying a park we don’t use or walking down a road with a sign which makes no sense.  You know them.  They are out there saving people from themselves or saving those who have not asked to be saved.  They chant slogans in the hopes of being acknowledged.  Simply put, they care more about everything than you do so they do not need to educate themselves on issues, particularly the ones they are currently championing.  The only knowledge they need is the deep pain they feel in their hearts over everything humans do.  This “feeling” is how they know that they are doing something meaningful… and you are stupid and mean.  And, because you work, bathe and cut your hair it’s clear you don’t care.

The genius by virtue of Inheritance. – I have money therefore I am.  I actually find these types entertaining and will engage them every once in a while.  These are the guys that inherited a ton of money and have no idea how it was made.  Sure, they were around when their parents created the wealth (unless of course their parents fit into this definition as well) but were not involved in the business even though they FEEL like they were.  As an aside, if their parents fit into this category it is astonishing to me these guys have anything left over as it usually gets spent before the kids see any of it.  Anyway, these are the fun drunks.  They buy all the drinks and agree with any idea ever put in front of them… like “it would be a good idea to open up a sequin mine… or become professional cat waxers”.  All they have had to do is be semi-tolerable and act like they’re brilliant… the money is already there whenever they want it, they just need “friends”.

The genius by virtue of being Alive. – I’m fabulous and you’re stupid for not agreeing with me.  These folks are everywhere!  They are prolific!  There is no required age, or income, or for that matter intelligence.  They recognize their own brilliance because they are ALIVE!  They have the latest cell phone, but they can’t tell you how it’s made.  They saw the latest movies but cannot tell you who is running for President and why.  They have the latest laptop but have no idea what makes it run… hell, they don’t need too!  They’re cool just because!  They can give you a 20 minute dissertation on Kim Kardashian’s rear end and its societal significance but can’t tell you how a policeman gets paid.  They have never read a book but update their Facebook page five times a day.  They consider the ability to download music a “skill”.  They think texting while driving should be outlawed… for other people.  (Same with guns, and “mean” dogs, and food that makes you fat, etc.)

So… Why do we need to identify these folks?

Because they VOTE, which directly effects us… and we run the risk of them having influence over others who vote as well.  It’s our job as individuals to recognize and clean up the intellectual mess they leave behind.

It also goes a long way in QUICKLY determining who you can trust.


Enter Podesta… Hillary’s personal scary Clown…

(This was posted almost three years ago 0n Dec. 12, 2013 at 11:03am…  you decide if any of it was correct.)

With the Coaching of the Clinton Machine, is President Obama taking a page from NASCAR on every issue?

To answer this question we have to understand Who John Podesta is.

John Podesta is President Obama’s New Advisor.

The Executive Summary: Podesta is one of the most horrid Socialists you will ever meet.

Let me put it this way… the last several weeks we have had the uncomfortable experience of meeting Zeke Emanuel, the brother of Rahm who let us know that there was absolutely No Confusion!  According to Zeke, the President always said you can keep your doctor if you pay more.  It’s as if a request was put into Central Casting for someone who looks and sounds likes a member of Adolf’s creepy inner circle, yet is Jewish, in order to play the role of a scary Menshevik.  So they sent over Zeke.  Perfect.

If you take it one step further you have John Podesta.

You have to remember that Obama is no longer up for election.  It’s Hillary’s turn.

With that in mind, it is an easy step to link Podesta (Clinton’s last Chief of Staff and head of Progressive Socialist efforts like Apollo Alliance.) to Hillary’s 2016 Election Campaign.  It also becomes clear that Hillary must position herself as the Moderate choice for President coming off of the last eight years of Obama.

So how do you do that?

Well… you send Obama so (overtly) far into the Marxist camp that Stalin might rise from the grave just to provide a standing O.  And there are few better to provide such hard left turns on every issue than John Podesta.  (I would offer George Soros, but too many of you know him.  It just wouldn’t look good.  Podesta is well-connected to Soros anyway through the Tides Foundation etc., so why bother.)

The Left then positions anyone running against Hillary as a Far Right Extremist while lamenting the move of President Obama so far away from “The American Mainstream”.  And in concert with their Liberal friends in the media will offer up Hillary as the Only Reasonable Person in the race… oh, and in case you didn’t know it she’s a girl.

If Hillary is smart, she will listen to her husband Bill and give as many speeches saying Nothing better than he said Nothing as often as possible.  (This will be hard for her as she is every bit the Marxist Obama is… so we’ll see.)  She’ll also have to work on her angry moments when she channels her inner Phyllis Diller… same voice, way less funny and in tones of a certain green Oz character.

If she can pull off not being herself, sit back and allow the vacant assessments of the useful idiots and those intellectually lazy individuals who call themselves moderates… populists or the “No Labels” crowd to lend their votes to her she’ll be the next President.

I know you’re asking; Why would Obama agree to this?

Because a Hillary Presidency will only serve to preserve the gains and maintain the progress of the current Socialist agenda being forced down the throats of a Public School Educated American Populace.  To the chagrin of Socialists world over, you just can’t run on that.

In addition, if Obama get’s any of his genuinely Hard Left dreams added onto his already noteworthy list of successes, all the better.  Consider it a bonus.

Drink about this carefully.  Is it a surprise that the Clinton Camp has started allowing for “Obama Hating” based on Policy as being OK so long as you don’t connect Leftist Ideology to it?

Expect to see some incredible, unbelievable, bordering on if not completely ridiculous, Policy proposals coming from the Obama camp in the next couple of years.


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.

 


What’s in a name?

Apparently nothing.

So I’ve decided to change mine.  (Just like Mayor DeBlasio… or Mr. Wilhelm…whatever…)

People don’t like me.  I’ve taken an admittedly unscientific poll but the results are clear.  I’m despised.  There are many reasons for this… many, many reasons…

So, by changing my name I will wipe the slate clean.  I mean there are a bunch of people out there who haven’t met me yet and my reputation under my old name can’t precede me.  All I have to say is “That’s not me.”  It will be like being born again! (Kinda… actually very similar…)

And, as long as I don’t get too attached to my new name I can always change it again down the road if I screw it up a second or third time…

The Socialists have been doing this for a hundred years!  Once they were Socialists, then Communists, then Progressives, then Social Democrats, then Democratic Socialists, then Liberals just to be super confusing, then Leftists, back to Socialists and even Anarchists to render the term meaningless, then back to Progressives… anon, anon…  Just like the criminals they are.

Think about it, “Hillary Clinton” is a way better name than “Suicide Inducing Harpy” which is what she used to go by.

Come on!  It doesn’t matter what you call yourself.

Your name says it all… who cares about your actions.  Instant Indulgence, without having to purchase it.

We do it all the time.

All you have to do is pick something like Catholic, Conservative, or Liberal and that’s what you are.

You don’t even have to know what that moniker means because it means whatever you want it to. Brilliant!

So what if you only go to Mass at Midnight on Christmas Eve… and support abortion.  It doesn’t matter.  So what that when you’re confronted with Socialist principles you cringe in disgust… you’re “Liberal” and you’re going to continue to vote for “Liberals” no matter what.  You can even wear the mantle of “Conservative” though you couldn’t explain free-market capitalism if your life depended on it, and you support catastrophic spending by huge extra-constitutional government as long as it is “your guys” in charge…  NO problem!

We’re finally at the point where words have no meaning.

And never worry, if some malcontent tries to assign a definition, you can just combine a bunch of them like “conservative-liberal-pacifist or liberal-progressive-social democrat or left leaning-anarcho-capitalist”, there are no rules…go nuts!

So remember, as long as you keep changing what you call yourself nobody will ever challenge you.   And if nobody Challenges you, then even you will never have to genuinely understand what your new name means.  You’ll Never Feel Stupid Again!

So…  it’s time for me to make the change.

I’m going with “Omnipotent”.  (It says it all.)

I know, it’s a bit of a mouthful but “Enlightened” seemed a to feminine and I’m saving “Super Genius” for future use.

Oh… and it’s “Mr. Omnipotent” to you.  Or, possibly “Your Highness”.  I’ll have to think about that.

Mr. Trump, Take Blue Back! (Thank you.)

(This was a plea I made on July 22nd of 2015.  And after last night’s debate, I have to extend a Thank You to Mr. Trump.  It’s about time someone wrested Blue back from the Socialists and put them back in their Historic Color… of Oppression, Death and Destruction, Blood Red.)

You’re Just the Man to do It…

Back in 2000 during a ridiculous, and I still believe contrived, Media Argument over how to depict States on Electoral maps during Elections, The Leftists decided to seize the opportunity to sow yet more confusion where there was previously none to be found.

The Liberal Media all came together and ‘voted’ that instead of what had been colors traditionally, and more important historically, associated with the two primary U.S. political parties, Red for Democrats and Blue for Republicans, the colors should be reversed.

Believe it or not, up to that point there was no confusion.

RED was the color of The Democrat Party

and

BLUE was the color of The Republican Party

But the Liberal Media knew this was their chance to help their Party crawl out from underneath the accurate label, and color, of Socialism.

So they ‘voted’ to make Republicans RED and Democrats BLUE.

That’s all it took. The Media revised what History had already determined to be true.

Well, I for one am tired of this glaring revisionism to be accepted by anyone… let alone those of us who know what “RED” means.

RED remains the color of Socialism. 

It is the color of Oppression, Destruction and Death Worldwide. 

It is the color of Lying Populism intended to placate the Masses while cementing the Power of the Few over the Many.

It is the color of creating the Government Addicted.

It is the color of Slavery.

It is the color of Racial and Ethnic Division fomented for Political Gain.

It is the color of Blood shed in the name of Tyranny.

It is the color of Social Democracy and the Democrat Party.

 

Mr. Trump,

During your run for the Presidency, please do me this one favor if you do nothing else, Take Blue Back.

And while you’re at it, remind the American People, and the myriad fools in the Republican Leadership, why Democrats are RED.

Thank You in Advance,

Mike at makeaneffort
