Time to get out your tin foil hats. Push them firmly down on your head and grab a drink.
Let’s suppose for a moment that roughly 20-years ago, when the idea of the European Union was still young, the support it won from the ‘Educated’ Leftists world over was due to their full knowledge it was Doomed to Fail.
Your hat still on?
Now that the EU is, in fact, Failing…
Let’s suppose that the very ‘Educated’ Leftists world over who supported the EU twenty tears ago DO NOT WANT TO SAVE IT because it’s Failure was the desired outcome.
Marx stated that Capitalism must collapse and Marxism/Socialism/Democracy/Progressive Leftist Liberal ideology would rise from the ashes by default.
European Leftists believe Social Democracies to be “Capitalist”. The EU is a collection of Social Democracies.
Let’s combine this with my belief that the latest Trade Agreement which our politicians seem determined to shove down our throats, just like Obama Care, is actually a lifeline for our Socialist Friends over in the EU.
If I’m correct, then this explains why our homegrown ‘Educated’ Leftists also do not support the passage of this Super Secret Trade Legislation. They, with their Fellow Travelers across the pond, want the EU to collapse because they believe that it will result is a Massive Win for Socialism/Marxism.
OK… if you haven’t passed out yet, you can take your hat off.
For the record, I also oppose the Trade Act. But I haven’t read it… and neither have any of our supposed representatives who are trying to convince us it MUST BE PASSED. My default position on all things I have not read is not to agree to it. Pretty simple. I should also state that I do not believe that the obvious outcome of the collapse of Western Socialist Democracies (calling them Capitalism does not make them Caitlyn Jenner) is finally the rise of the ‘right kind of’ Communism. The Social Democracies world over deserve to fail because of their predictably inane ideas. The idea U.S. tax dollars should go to save them from their fate is outrageous.
In the end, I refuse to continue to be a Subject of Socialists…
But it seems that too many of our elected officials see our ‘friends’ across the pond as allies… instead of ideologically challenged associates. This issue is the perfect light in which to view those who we support.
In fact, any one of those who are supposed to be representing us who ask us to support the Super Secret Trade Legislation which neither they nor anyone else has read should be drummed out of politics altogether.
(As a note: Mr. Ryan… you have not read this Act. So STFU.)
You want our support?
Make the Trade Legislation Public.
Allow Us to Read the Trade Legislation. You MUST Read it… because IT’S YOUR JOB.
Allow all of Us to Discuss the Trade Legislation.
Then do what we ask you to… unless it’s in conflict with the Constitution.
I know this would change the current, and clearly comfortable, paradigm of “You’re all too stupid to know what we’re doing.” Gruber Government. But that’s the “Change” we demand. And WE get to Demand things here in America… Or at least we used to.
