Fighting to be Your Voice

An exchange I had with a friend brought something to mind.

We were discussing Organized Religion’s drive to be the Voice of The People.

Our conversation reinforced my belief that Organized Religion has a tendency, a desire, to be Government.

What I mean by this is The Church is not Fighting For your Voice… They are Fighting to BE your Voice.

This is synonymous with Statist governing Theory and it’s Demand to BE your voice.

Statists expect to be your Agent… in other words, they require the power to make decisions on your behalf, without your knowledge, that you will be liable for.

But it seems what We really want are spokespeople, or rather representatives, who speak Our Mind and execute Our Desires.  These two concepts are not the same.  While having the ability to override our demands… our Representatives would only do so in the very rarest of moments.  And when, if ever, this happens we demand an Explanation as they Work for us and have put us in a position we did not ask to be in.  In turn, They will stand tall to be judged while delivering that which we demand.

Clearly. This is not what we experience now.

I’ve long-held that Marx found compatriots within Europe exactly because his ideas would save the rapidly disenfranchised Aristocracy and Landed Gentry from complete irrelevance.  It’s Telling that Engels, Marx’ Patron, was born of wealth.  It’s also illustrative that many of the wealthy throughout Europe flocked to his ideas… as do much of America’s wealthy do today.

What becomes evident is it’s never been about Social Justice or whatever undefinable platitude you choose.  It’s always been about the Rich retaining their position within Society.  It’s always been about Class Permanence.  And in this regard everywhere Democratic Socialism has been tried it has indeed worked.

I marvel at the Machiavellian Brilliance found in Marx’ ideas in terms of having the Masses support the same Class Stasis they were trying to dismantle.

And without fail… the Masses have succeeded, enthusiastically.  And the Irony is they still don’t understand what’s happened.

But back to the point,

This is the difference between Protecting, and Fighting for, the Individual above all else vs. Protecting, and Fighting for, The Group.

When you ‘fight for the group’ you open yourself up to manipulation by Rich Socialists who have become Professional Manipulators.  This is what the term Useful Idiot means.  When you listen to Rich Liberals tell you how you must change your life and also vote for them again and again, right now, to save the planet, your neighborhood, your family, your vagina, whatever it is you value most… except, of course, your Freedom from Government… and you agree with him without ever asking why he refuses to give up his, you become Useful in the worst way.  It is when you Give Them your Voice that you become a Slave.  And that’s what they want.

It’s easy to comprehend.

Those seeking to protect the Group wish to secure their power as The Voice and remain in that office Forever while providing Their Family, and Their Friends, with the influence and largess the office affords. (Their Friends and Family would expect it… less they would accuse that powerful person of not caring about them.  And of course we want to be liked, loved and grow the power and influence we already have.  All of us want ‘the best’ for those closest to us.  How could you possibly deny Your Child access to medical care that has been structurally denied everyone else if you had the power to do so?  Or, how could you not make sure your Son or Daughter gets that job, even though there are better applicants, when you have the power to ‘make it happen’?  You know this to be true, and it will always be the fatal flaw in every incarnation of Socialism.  Self-Interest from within… and without.  So why do we continue to entertain repeating Marx’ horrid experiment?  But I digress…)

However,

Those seeking to protect the Individual seek nothing else. They do not seek to secure their position to ‘spread the wealth around’ so long as it’s other people’s wealth. They do not seek to expand their power over others ‘to get things done’. They do not seek the office of Representative in order to direct favors to their family and friends.

The latter terrify those now in power exactly because they threaten the legalized theft from the  Masses, as well as jeopardizing the very Scheme embraced by Marx’ patrons 100 yeas ago. The Established System which keeps them in control would be at risk.

Those who seek to protect the Individual understand that the power of Government must be returned to what the Founders intended, which necessitates a Massive reduction.  This reduction would cut the leg’s out from underneath those Liberals, Republican and Democrat, that built their entire Empires on such Power.

Once you recognize this it becomes easier to understand what’s going on in our Country today.


The Koch Brothers Strike Again!

The Koch Brothers give $25 Million to the United Negro College Fund.

I’m sorry…

The Super-Evil Capitalist Exploiters otherwise known as The Koch Brothers, who alone are responsible for all things sinister and insidious in an otherwise fair world, gave the united Negro College Fund Twenty-Five Million Dollars, Dirty Money Stolen from defenseless Wage Slaves, to be used for Educating those that might not otherwise be able to access Higher Education.

Man are these Koch Brothers A-Holes!

Should the Money be Refused?

Given Back?

Handed over to the Government to be “spread around”?  (Not Redistributed!  “Spread Around.”  Totally different… totally.  Dude.)


Hubris

(A re-post from 052813 in light of a renewed effort by the current Administration to accuse us of creating “PHONY SCANDALS”.)

 

Like a small flash it hit me after reading this quote from a DNC fundraising email:

“They’ve (Republicans) been caught red-handed making up so-called ‘scandals’ out of thin air to stir up false rumors of vast ‘cover-ups’ happening in the White House,”  Full story here.

First, let’s address the substance of this statement by listing what must be “made up out of thin air”…

This is what really happened, AKA the Truth, according to the DNC:

A U.S. Diplomat and three security personnel, two of whom did not fly to the rescue by stealing an airplane, were not killed on Sept. 11, 2012 by Al Qaeda militants.

The State Department, for some inexplicable reason, did not blame the event on a you tube video that 19 people viewed prior to the non-existent attack by random folks living in Benghazi.

The Administration did not register the 11 other Benghazi victims under pseudonym’s when they were admitted to various hospitals for the injuries they did not receive during the non-attack.

The Internal Revenue Service did not admit targeting Conservative groups, who are perceived by the current Administration as opposition, for additional scrutiny.

One of those running things at the IRS did not plead the fifth in order to not incriminate herself.

The Department of Justice did not secure the phone records for 100 Associated Press reporters, which did not include ancillary business and personal phone numbers.

The Department of Justice did not secure months of e-mail, which included addresses for his contacts, from a FOX News reporter without his knowledge or agreement.

These ridiculous non-facts are just more of the same from the Republican Party…. stop reading here and send the Democrat National Committee your money now.

Or, keep reading a little longer.

The small flash I mentioned earlier was a word…  Hubris.

Hubris /ˈhjuːbrɪs/, also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one’s own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.  Full definition here.

Taking a short trip down memory lane, I recall the second year of President Obama’s first term.  At the beginning of that year he was being roundly criticized for appearing on television with unfettered frequency never before matched by any sitting president.  By the end of that year his party had lost the control of the House to the Republicans.  This happened to the dismay of those who predicted victory based on the turnout from his huge 6-point win 24-months prior.

I remember his demeanor being one of shock… for several months he seemed sullen and in a state of disbelief given such results.  I’m not sure he’s been quite the same since.

But, Barack Obama genuinely believed his victory over one of the oldest, “whitest”, most “war-mongering”, least Republican candidates in 2008 was not because he was a young, articulate, African-American… he believed it was because he had a mandate for his Socialist Ideas.  He actually thought the voters were listening to the meaning of his words… not just enjoying the beat, and hopped up on the desire to feel like their lives mean something… historic.

If you take a moment and slip on his size 12’s, you could understand this.  It’s undeniable, He spelled out his plan in “Blue Print for America”, his books, his speeches and with the people he surrounded himself with.  He was not keeping his Socialist values a secret… just ask Joe the Plumber.  Frankly, just ask any of us who were screaming at the top of our lungs exactly because we DID read his Blue Print, speeches and books.

President Barack Obama believed, and still believes, that the masses agree with him.  To him, The Ends of Social Justice… being Equality of Outcome with Government at the Center of every Solution… is justified by the Means of having the U.S. kneel before the world while using Government Force to destroy any Opposition to the Socialist Utopia.

I suggest the reason we are seeing all of these “non-existent” scandals come to light is a brilliant by-product of our founding Fathers Constitutional design.  This type of malfeasance will always surface in a transitional government.  When individuals within ones own party are interested in securing power for themselves, and your time is up… as mandated by law, anything you’ve been doing is up for review.  When I say anything, I mean trampling on the First, Second and Fourth Amendments.  It has to scream for Pepto-Bismol when the Benghazi Whistleblowers are all Democrats… who then are testifying that we (the U.S.) could have sent assistance which might have resulted in saving the lives… of a Democrat Ambassador and his Democrat security personnel.

It also has to cause his ulcer to bleed when his fellow Democrats join the chorus of those demanding investigations of the IRS for political targeting.

Finally, he and his Administration must be suffering from Elitist Arrogance when they start using the Countries Security Services to investigate the Press for doing their job… well, at least when the Press are doing the part of their job which the Administration finds disagreeable.  The Press… the one ally the Leftists count on.  The enablers of government vice.  (The press giving any oxygen to this is unbelievable.  Talk about biting the hand that feeds you…)

I will state again, nothing is going to cause this President to be Impeached.  It will not happen.  And he knows it.

I don’t care if Congress finds out this Administration was selling missiles to Syrian Rebels associated with Al Qaeda.  I don’t care if they find out the IRS was coordinating their efforts to oppress Conservative Opposition with the FBI, DHS and OSHA.  I don’t care if they find out transcripts exist of the AP reporters personal calls to their spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, etc. which are being passed around DOJ for laughs.  And, I don’t care if we discover that help was truly available to be sent to Benghazi but was told to stand down because it might appear to be too “American”, or as the Leftists put it too “Militaristic”, which we also find out was the same reason they were there without the appropriate security in the first place.  I don’t even care if they find out the President is sleeping with Valerie Jarret and Susan Rice, at the same time, then lied about it under oath in order to escape a sexual harassment lawsuit based on law he directly championed.

Only an extremely over blown sense of competency, arrogance and undeserved righteousness could fuel such behavior.

However, none of this matters.  We have 3 1/2 more years of this guy and his Fellow Travelers.  That’s just the way it is.

But that doesn’t mean we have to sit by and watch them destroy what little of the Constitution and Bill of Rights which remain intact.

Get ready for the mid-terms.  (Update 112014… we won.  but it might not be enough if we still have no spine.)

It’s possible they believe there are no scandals… Hubris would explain that too.

If you make sh*t up, then write it down… and read it, you might just begin to believe it.  Such is the way of the Leftist.
