No Plan “B”

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.

Whoops.

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.

You’re insane.

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.

But Wait!

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.

Are we?

Will this be the age of The Great Renovation?

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!


He has a Point about the Death Star.
