Force

An interesting question came up yesterday.

During a conversation with an associate I was asked to define Socialism.  And, then explain why I think it’s bad.

My response was, “Force.”.

The issue is not that Socialism is difficult to define but rather that so many people demonstrate the mindset through their actions while calling themselves various other things.  Socialists intentionally try to keep you, and themselves, confused… if they didn’t, you would see them for what they are.

It became clear during this conversation that a simple rule would be useful, because the left changes their names with regularity and impunity. The Socialists figured out long ago when people understand what they really stand for, those same people don’t like them. The solution was to keep calling themselves something different… often.

The evolution of names adds up to a long list, from stealing the term “Liberal” to using words like Progressive. You’ll find them labeling themselves Democrats, Moderates, Social Democrats, Republicans and even, hilariously, “No Labels”.  I prefer “Statists” because it lumps them all together… it’s easier for me as I have few brain cells remaining.

It becomes humorous when you think about it… how disliked must you be to have so many names?  Well, criminals do this everyday.  Count the times you’ve watched the news and the police are looking for a guy with fifteen different “AKA’s”?  Criminals, and Liberals, understand that a name follows you around and gets in the way of doing bad things.  Can’t have that.

So how do we identify these people?
The first question you should always ask yourself is… does this person advocate force to be used upon U.S. Citizens in order to achieve their desired goal?

An easy example of the above is:

Is the government forcing me to buy… a bible, a first edition of Audacity of Hope or health insurance?  If so, the person advocating the force is a Socialist.  It doesn’t matter what they call themselves.

And, the law used to force you to do so is Socialist in nature and therefore extra-constitutional.  (OK Lefties – Car insurance does not apply here as you are not forced to buy a car… and even if you choose to, as long as it resides on your private property (say a ranch) you are not forced to have insurance for it.)

If you’re still not sure, then the second question is; Does this person desire to use this force to “nudge” you to the ‘right’ decision, in other words quicker than you might have arrived there on your own…  This is done because the Leftist wielding the force already knows (believes) their answer is the right one and you’re too inept (Stupid) to make the correct decision on your own.

Some historic examples of this are skyrocketing gas prices forced upon us through Federal taxes, and a refusal to utilize our own natural resources, so we can get those cars that run on algae which we have all been dreaming about.  Or, forcing banks to lend you money even though you don’t have a job and you have a history of not paying your bills… this way you can have a house BEFORE you can afford it subsequently causing a GLOBAL financial meltdown.  (Thank you again Barney Frank and Chris Dodd.)

It doesn’t matter what the consequences are, because these people are Brilliant and full of only the best intentions… like forcing people to buy crappy fluorescent light bulbs from a company that donates millions of dollars to their campaign coffers.  Thank God we have such smart folks to take care of us stupid people…

It really is that simple, and this “force” rule can be applied hundreds of times a day. Now that you realize how this works, you’ll be amazed on how it changes the way you see the world. You will also be amazed at the change in how you view people you previously thought you agreed with.

So instead of allowing yourself to succumb to the intentionally confusing and overwhelming number of names and supposed “good intentions” the Left hides behind, you now have an easy way to identify them and their behaviors immediately and clearly even through their denials.  When applied, this rule will identify those Socialists on both sides of the aisle.

In contrast, Free-Market Capitalism requires no force.  None.  All it requires is you making the decision you think is best for you.  Rugged Individualism takes into account that we are all in this together, but it allows YOU to determine if coming together as a group towards a goal is the right thing for you to do… it does not allow for some other person to force you to ‘come together’ and accomplish a goal you disagree with but they think is super cool.

Make no mistake… there is a war going on.  It’s a battle between two very different governing theories… two very different Ideologies.

One is Collectivist in nature.  It’s a number of ideas that sound nice when said aloud but have a very long, sad history of oppression, poverty, death, destruction and failure.  It’s called Democratic Socialism. It’s Force.  The entirety of the Democrat Party, and many in the Republican Party promote this ideology through their actions while denying it to your face.  They work “around” the U.S. Constitution because it is anti-socialist by design.  They call it a “living, breathing document” or “outdated”.  Of course they do, it’s in the way.

The other theory is Enlightened and what this country was founded on.  It’s Liberty and Freedom of the Individual to choose.  It’s a Federal Government Limited by a Constitution.  It’s Free-Market Capitalism that protects not just the Individual, but the Economic health of all of us… together.  There are only a few politicians promoting this ideology but their numbers are increasing as the citizens begin to actively pay attention.  With the Education of the population in regard to these two theories the voters find their way.  Sadly, the contrast is no longer being taught in our Government School System and must be sought out.  But you are seeking it out… to the dismay of the Left.

What should be understood is these two ideologies are mutually exclusive.  Compromise has no place here.  The fact that we have tried to compromise ( link to: Bipartisanshitt) over the last 110-years is exactly what has brought us to the fiscal cliff.  We have strayed very far in deed from our original intent.

It’s time to admit it, double back, and find the right path before it’s too late.

We are very close to “too late”.

Note from Obama’s second to last State of the Union:

(On the heels of President Obama’s final Speech to the U.N. this morning, 092016, and his plea to keep Socialist Administrators in charge of everything… combined with his factual observation that Capitalism has improved the lives of everyone world over only to later call it “Soulless”… I felt it necessary to put this up again.  The idea that we all become closer in a world that becomes smaller is inarguable.  But those Socialists that subscribe to Undisturbed Evolution being the brilliance of the Universe are the same people who cannot conceive of the same Social Evolution without their input and control, in other words their meddling and distortion while cementing permanent positions as Administrators.  It’s genuinely amazing to hear such Arrogance and Narcissism spoken out loud.  Frankly it’s the speech Obama should have given 8 years ago.  It’s what he really believes.  He’s Smarter than you… and you’re welcome.  The Truth is Unfettered Capitalism does not require their self-anointed brilliance.  It only requires all of us making decisions for ourselves in an ever shrinking world.  They know this, and they see no place for themselves in such an Undisturbed Evolution.  This morning’s speech is nothing more than a cry for relevance.  A cry for Global Institutionalization of the Aristocracy and its inherent nepotism.  It’s nothing more than the vapid Marxism that has attempted to salvage the elitist hold on power as the worlds Monarchies collapse.  It’s old, it’s tired and it remains as dangerous as ever in it’s oppression, death and destruction.  Global Socialism is a Poison… and we are being told to double the dose.)

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:

“All the News we Choose to Print.”

 


Jesus was a Socialist!

(On the heels of the World discovering Pope Francis subscribes to a very Old concept of Religion as Government and Redistribution as Law combined with a doomed to obscurity no-nothing like Ed Schultz on MSNBC proclaiming direct access to God and what God would approve of in terms of Insurance being Forced Upon Human Beings, I thought this might be worth a repost.)

How can any right-wing idiot disagree with such an obvious statement?

OK… I’m going way out on a limb here.

Theology is not my area of expertise, but I’m willing to bet it’s not yours either.  I have read both Testaments front to back.  I refer to them and many other works often, most of the time to correct my thinking in regard to what they actually “said”.  (Yes, I too fall into the trap once in a while of believing what other people tell me instead of reading it for myself.  I think this is an epidemic problem but I digress.)  I have learned to trust… but verify.

So let’s work through this, shall we?

Jesus believed we should be charitable.

Jesus believed we should care for the poor.

Jesus believed we should treat others the way we would wish to be treated.  (History has never shown Socialists to be particularly tolerant and if they treated their opposition the way they wished to be treated they never mentioned it.  I know a WHOLE lot about this… but I’ll save you for the moment.  Refer to “Killer of Men.”)

Jesus believed in his Father, God, as the highest power known to man.  (Socialists do not subscribe to a power higher than the State. All faith must be placed in the communal system.  If the State is your God then you are good to go!  If not… then Your quest with spirituality is your and yours alone as an individual.)

Jesus believed you should and have to be Forced to “do the right thing”.   (That’s right!  He.. uh.. wait…  I can’t seem to find that last one in the gospels.  At least not the synoptic texts.  Anyone?  Tossing some tables of intruders who set up shop in your house does not count.  I throw people out of my house all the time… they’re free to stand out on the sidewalk.)

This is the problem with what sometimes seems an obvious statement, it is often wrong.  Very wrong.

Socialism/Statism requires Force.  It’s fine to think others SHOULD do something (as Jesus did), but that does not make you a Socialist, Theocrat or Communist etc.  It is when you seek to apply Force, which we have reserved to government, to MAKE people do what you think is right that elevates you to one of the aforementioned classes.

I am open to being corrected, preferably by someone with a Theological background.  But until I can be enlightened, so to speak, I have to simply reply to such a statement as “Jesus was a Socialist!” with “No.  He was not.”

However, We can ask Him when he get’s back.

It’s election day…

If you haven’t already done so, go find a Statist and Vote Against them.

Repeat this behavior every chance you get.

Thank you in Advance,

All of Us.


Socialism. Why Not?

Let’s be honest…

You know you’re Smarter than most people.

You’re certain the only thing that happens when other people are given the ability to make their own decisions is they make the wrong ones…

It’s clear to you that everyone is better off having Smart folks like you in charge of things…

Why?  Because life is complicated, and requires the best and brightest to navigate it… especially for everyone else.

Of course You believe in Freedom!

Freedom is not having to constantly make choices about everything…

Of course You believe in Liberty!

Liberty is not having a bunch of responsibilities taking away from the stuff you want to do…

But you also believe in Good Government!

Because Government is the source of all things good in the World…

You weren’t born yesterday… you know what’s Bad!

Corporations are the root of all things Bad…

You also know who the Racists are!

You know for a fact that anyone who opposes the things you think to be true are racists… even those who are minorities.

And you realize the debate is Over!

You are Far too Intelligent… to argue with anyone who doesn’t agree with you.

In the End… There is no question You must save the rest of us from Ourselves.

And, if all it takes is forcing a bunch of people to make the right decisions…

Why Not?


The Cardinal of The Kremlin

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, exploring homosexuality, decided to address the Marxism preached by Pope Francis.

First, for full disclosure I’m not Catholic.  And, this post has nothing to do with indicting the long-held Leftist views of The Catholic Church.  But there is a very interesting take away from the Cardinals’ statement that needs to have some additional attention… and it has nothing to do with Gay Marriage.

Cardinal Dolan decided to take the opportunity during his reflections of what Pope Francis should and should not do to make it clear The Pope is not a Marxist.  And this is how he did it:

“The Catholic Church is “always concerned about excesses on the left, which is collectivism, socialism, communism, and excesses on the right, which is unfettered, cut-throat capitalism,” Dolan said. “Somewhere in between is the via media, which will come to a fair, equitable, just, economic system.”

Pope John Paul II, having lived under a Communist regime in Poland, “was a bit more sensitive to the excesses on the left. Francis, he’s a bit more sensitive about the excesses to the right.” As Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Pope Francis lived under right-wing regimes in Argentina for much of his life.”

Let me help those of you not used to deciphering such speech.  What Cardinal Dolan is saying above is The Church is always concerned when the Left attempts to remove God from the position of Ultimate Authority…  But Capitalism (He’s actually describing Fascism… which is just a Flavor of Socialism/Communism) never Requires God… and this is unacceptable.  What’s interesting is the “Socialism” he says the Church “is always concerned about” and the Capitalism (Actually Fascism) which he describes as “cut-throat” are One in the Same.

He goes on to illustrate my point in the second paragraph of the quote.  Since Pope John Paul II grew up under a Communist Regime he was sensitive to the Horrible Leftist Ideas.  But, since Pope Francis lived under “Right Wing” regimes in Argentina the implication is he is sensitive to supposedly “Capitalist” Ideas.

There is only two things that could be at work here.

Either Cardinal Timothy Dolan knows that there has never been unfettered Capitalism practiced anywhere in the World, as the closest we’ve been able to get is here in the U.S.  Thus, he is intentionally trying to sow confusion in the minds of anyone who is listening…

Or

The Cardinal lives in a Magical Universe where the only Political Spectrum in existence is Socialist in Nature.  There’s No Capitalism… none… to be found anywhere in it.

In Other words, All Governing Theory is Statist and there are only variations with Communism being on the Left Wing of the Spectrum and Fascism (What he, and most Progressive Socialists, describe a Capitalism) being on the Right Wing.  (It’s worth noting that the Catholic Church has practiced Religion as Government for most of it’s existence… and their Theocratic Model would fit somewhere in the Middle of this imaginary Statist Spectrum.)

But either of these options just don’t seem to be the behaviors of trusted men.

So…

Giving Cardinal Dolan the benefit of the doubt, Let’s assume he doesn’t know what Capitalism is.  And, let’s also hope he finds some time for Enlightenment in regard to the One Governing Theory that protects each and every one of us regardless of our RACE, CREED, COLOR, GENDER or RELIGION.  I have Faith.

Until that time, it’s profitable to note, and remind all around you, that Capitalism, Property Rights and One’s Freedom to Choose are what protect Liberty.  This formula is a Profoundly Unique Governing Paradigm, it has been found only one place on Earth.  This might explain Cardinal Dolan’s, and Pope Francis’, inability to understand what the Rare concept in self governance is.

Just to be “fair”, Cardinal Dolan and Pope Francis grew up in Socialist Countries (St. Louis and Argentina) ultimately to reside in Socialist Countries (Manhattan and Italy) so we might want to go easy on them.

If nothing else, this is yet another example of the enormity of our task.  The fact that there are otherwise intelligent people in positions of power who do not know the difference between Capitalism and Fascism… or if they do they don’t want to admit it… tells us that there is much work to do indeed.

I propose we start with the Useful Idiots.  At least we Know they Don’t Know.  Nothing Sinister there, just ignorance.

That, we can work with.


Hillary and I Agree on Something…

Or, In The Garden of Good and Evil.

Why do Progressives have such a difficult time with Good vs. Evil?

This came to mind after reading Hillary’s statement regarding Putin’s Actions resembling Hitler… A statement I happen to agree with on a number of levels, from the fostering of National Identity by positioning the World as an antagonist (Very Machiavellian) to Vlad’s demonstrated wish to Expand his countries borders under the guise of “protecting” Ethnic Russians.  I personally made such a statement several days ago.

But what I can’t quite reconcile is Why Now is a Prominent Democrat seeing it Clearly? Well, I can when it comes to Hillary 2016… But I still find it interesting as a larger question.  Hillary First…

So Why would Mrs. Clinton suddenly find Putin’s Socialist/Fascist Behavior to be Hitleresque?

There are exactly Two reasons.

A.  It’s election time and she knows the rest of us find Putin’s behavior repugnant. It’s always good to be on the same side of stuff as the people whom you want voting for you.

B.  It’s yet another attempt to separate the behavior of Fascists from the “wholesome, for your own good, because we care about you” Democrat Socialism.

But What about the Rank and File Socialists?  How do They deal with Putin’s actions?

For decades the Left in this country has faced difficult Positions to Champion.

They have made Excuses for what is demonstrably the Single most Destructive Ideology the planet has ever known in terms of Human Life or Pointed a finger at the only Economic Paradigm, Free Market Capitalism, which has lifted Billions out of Poverty, Saved Lives and Protected the Planet then Screamed “Exploitation”.

Every moment of every day Liberals must defend the very Ideology which has wrought Death and Destruction of all that is Good and then blame Sociaty’s Ill on Society itself.  This fact explains their difficulty with Good and Evil when they try to identify it.  It explains why they find themselves on “The Same Side of History” as Lenin, Mao, Stalin, Chavez, Castro, Guevara, Stalin, Ho Chi Min, Pol Pot, Mugabe, FDR, etc. etc. etc.  Their excuses have necessarily been born of Moral Relativity, Pragmatism and preservation of Power.

The Horror’s practiced by the above Leaders, and Millions of their Followers, must always be excused with the Good intentions which precipitated them or the Failure of the Individual.  The innate flaws of Man must be personalized and frozen… then isolated in order to not find Responsibility in the Ideology… in Themselves.

The Forced Failures of Socialist Planners is excused by blaming Individuals who are not smart enough to understand the benefits, Ephemeral acts of the Universe whose Consciousness fails to recognize the Brilliance of Those Who Proclaimed the Prescience of knowing the way forward for the Unwashed Masses, or Both.

As far as Hillary seeing Putin for what he is, She remains a Socialist.

Hillary longs to be the Leader of Those Who Make Excuses for Evil.  To Be a Liberal… She Must.

While It’s Interesting that One Who Champions Force recognizes It as Evil…

Unless a Change of Mind Occurs and That person decides to Champion the Individual, in other words What is Good,

It just isn’t Very Valuable.

Hillary may see Putin’s Actions as Evil… but just can’t really explain Why.
