Just Say No…

…To Socialism.

If you’ve been with me for longer than 10 minutes, then you already realize I’m what you would call an Anti-Socialist.

While I have vast and varied views, first and foremost I stand in opposition to all forms of Socialist thought. You can call it whatever you want; Socialism, Liberalism, Leftist, Progressive, Fascist, Communist, Democrat, No Labels, Crony Capitalist, RINO, John McCain… or whatever new names they come up with to keep you confused.

Why do I oppose Socialism?  Why do I oppose a political theory that promotes Elitists exercising force over all those they deem inferior?  Why do I oppose an Ideology that has resulted in the greatest destruction to the common good, and ultimately the loss of life, in the history of the world?

I am a Free-Market Capitalist.

But what apparently sets me apart is I know what that means, which is more than I can said for the majority of our elected officials… and certainly more than our electorate.

(If you would like to join me in actually KNOWING what a Free-Market Capitalist is instead of allowing Leftists to tell you what they want you to think it is… here’s a good start:  Wealth of Nations, Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal, The Road to Serfdom, Freedom to Choose, The Romantic Manifesto, The Constitution of Liberty, The Age of Reason, The Law, Conflict of Visions… and the list can go on.  Come join us… it is rare air to breathe indeed.)

I will share with you, the people being demonized by the press are the people you must listen to carefully. (Actually listen to them… not whatever sound bite John Stewart or Bill Mahr decide to let you hear, followed by a studio audience of the above mentioned know nothings yucking it up and a laugh track from the fifties.)

The folks you will be told are Mean, Evil, Stupid and In the Way of your Happiness are the very individuals who, most likely, have the best interest of our amazing country at heart. And, they are the few deserving an honest, unedited, un-editorialized hearing of why they stand in opposition of more Socialism.

But let me get you started:

Socialism gets you Detroit.

Socialism gets you Mexico.

Socialism gets you Domestic Spying.

Socialism gets you incredibly horrible public schools.

Socialism gets you Unions who make promises to their members they know they can’t honor.

Socialism put’s your medical records out there for all to see.

Socialism gets you expensive, crappy health care.

Socialism gets you high taxes.

Socialism gets you high unemployment.

Socialism gets you Crony business deals.

Socialism gets a quadrupling of the money supply devaluing everything you’ve worked so hard to save.

Socialism spends your money with no consideration of reason or result, because it believes it owns the money… not you.

Socialism gets you National Debt so large you cannot possibly conceive it.  You literally can’t count that high… before you die of old age.

Socialism gets you racial hatred because without it, it dies.

Socialism gets you a bigger and bigger gap between the rich and poor, because it relies on that too.

Socialism puts self-anointed Elitist A-holes in power and keeps them there… forever.

Socialism is Force.

So the very least MY representatives can do IS NOT GET ALONG WITH SOCIALISTS.  AT ALL… EVER.

The very least MY representatives can do is say NO in the face of bigger government and more spending… or should I SAY WASTING MY MONEY.

The VERY LEAST my representatives can do IS STAND IN OPPOSITION to everything… every single thing… the Socialists want to do.

And, if they DO NOTHING ELSE… I will consider them to be doing a great job.

If they really want to impress me, then start taking apart 100 years of Socialist schemes which have not only stood in the way of this country being greater than it is, but has set it back on every level.  Doubt me?  Do you think the founding fathers would have asked the public to tolerate Domestic Spying after fighting a War in order to establish a new type of Government designed to protect the Individual, Their Freedom, Liberty and Property?  (There were plenty of “Terrorists” back then too.)

So I expect that 20% of the Republican Party who are about to be positioned as the worst people in the world… will do the right thing.

I expect them to be the Party of No!

NO!  NO!  NO!

It is the least they can do.  When I say “the least”, I mean the LEAST.

The Enemy Within

For the handful of you that haven’t already realized the Republican Party has been compromised by the Liberal Left and their Fascist Ideology…

As a Parting Gift, John Boehner has just handed the Progressives unlimited spending.

This is on the heels of a mock election for the Speaker of the House which Boehner immediately canceled when it became clear the Leftist Establishment was not going to get the outcome they wanted.

Now the Banana Republicans have achieved their goal by anointing Paul Ryan as the Next Speaker for the House of Representatives.

If it isn’t clear by now…

You’ve been used.  You’re still being used.

From the faux opposition to Obama Care, a poorly disguised pathway to Single Payer Socialized Medicine, which allows for total control over everything you do. and will do, to takeover of the banks by the very Leftists who caused them to fail in the first place… from where, and when, you’ll be allowed to travel, to what kind of wage you’ll be allowed to earn… from what you eat and read, to what activities you’ll be permitted to participate in.  All of these things will be decided for you by Socialists with ‘the best of intentions’. In fact, it’s already started in school lunch programs and mandatory insurance policies.

The Democrats and their RINO counterparts will tell you “It’s about your happiness, health and well-being after all.”  No allowing of your Individual Freedom.  Certainly no allowing your right to choose.

The fact all the above serves to solidify the permanent power of those Leftists on both sides of the aisle, and their progeny, is to be ignored by you.

When the message is,

‘Do not understand ‘why’ America is exceptional.  Do not demand Political Ideology and Governing Theory be clearly espoused, and more importantly demonstrated, by ‘your guy’.  Do not Require your Government return to the Constitution’s Original Intent and Expressed Limitations.’

When you’re being told,

‘It’s too Late.  Nothing Can be done about it.  Government will always be corrupt so you might as well get yours.’

It has begun.

What should you be feeling?

Bitter… Betrayed… Angry… Scared… Frustrated… Motivated…

Make no mistake, there is a war going on right in front of you.

The Enemy is Within.

It’s time to pick a side within the Republican Party.  It’s time to Defeat the Cancer that has led this country into Fiscal Insolvency and Democratic Socialism.   It’s time to Think… forcefully.

You will have no friends.


Balkanization

Or…

Why the IRS matters.

The BIG question is, does the IRS scandal matter?

I say yes, it does.

Here’s why:

For almost 100 years the Left in this country has spent untold treasure, and untold man hours, crafting arguments that pit one group against another.

The creation and nurturing of these groups is called Balkanization.

It is the political tactic of getting individuals to identify with a small group sharing similar interests, then pitting them against other small groups who seem to oppose said interests.  The outcome of this manipulation, they hope, is to gain one or the other small groups support in the form of money, and votes, come election time.  We have all seen this.  While it is certainly found on both sides of the aisle, it is the sole motivator used by the Socialists.  It is the proverbial “Us vs. Them”, whomever that may be.  The reason this is the foundation of Socialist politics can be found when individuals educate themselves as to what Socialism is… then recoil in disgust.  Because of this common reaction to Progressive ideology, they are left with identity politics.

The upside for the Statist Left is it distracts us from the paramount task of protecting our Natural Right to Indivdual Feedom and Liberty as outlined in our Founding Documents… what is otherwise a unifying cause.

There is fantastic writing on this phenomena out there, so will I not bore you.

But, what makes the IRS scandal important is the unifying effect it has on the population.  No matter who you are, if you are productive in any way, you are afraid of the IRS.  They have enjoyed that power, fostered it since their inception.  The rub for Liberals lies in the Unity part…

When your entire political success relies on small groups that you keep mad at those you consider your enemy, things start to fall apart when everybody unites.  And, everybody is uniting in outrage over the IRS scandal.  This makes for a very interesting tap dance the Left must perform in order to retain their base (by feigning outrage along with them) while also trying to defend and preserve the fear the IRS reputation evokes.  They must have a complicated, unintelligible, unnavigable tax code allowing unlimited power over the population and it’s productivity.  Socialism requires “special people” with the authority to redistribute wealth.

If you doubt me, you will have plenty of opportunity to see for yourself over the next week or so.  During the hearings look for your local Leftist and count the number of “but’s” in their statements and questions.  In other words, they will start by saying how unbelievable… horrible… terrible… it is for the IRS to target certain groups “BUT”… and then they will go on to defend its legality, or justify it in some way.  They simply cannot lose the power of the IRS.  Liberals on both sides of the aisle know and love the power they find in the U.S. tax code.

For the Socialists, government exists to take your money and give it to someone else… and you’re supposed to love it.  Or at the very least fear it.  Caligula had a famous quote; “Let them Hate me, so long as they Fear me.”

So yes, this scandal matters.  And I think it matters in a very big way.

In a Global way… in a Macro sense…

In fact, the timing could not be better… well, it could have been better.  It could have happened 50 years ago.  Anyway, it was not long ago that those who supported ideas like the Gold Standard were dismissed (after Nixon) to crazy-ville by the Liberal Left.  But time has allowed for many additional alternatives regarding taxation, from flat to consumption.

Many more individuals have become interested in the function of money.  These two facts only make it harder for those who have anointed themselves the smartest people in the room to do as they wish in regard to our economy.  Education has that effect.

So it brings us to today…

The Left has no choice but to try to shut down this IRS scandal.

They cannot afford all of us getting together and opposing something so important to the foundation of their Ideology.  The power of taxation cannot be modified in any way that reduces their ability to redistribute wealth.

They cannot afford alternative ideas designed to fund government functions which do not require one human forcing their subjective decisions upon other humans.  The individual cannot become more independent through the reduction of bureaucratic oversight and punishment.

They cannot afford to have this discussion continue much longer… particularly now that many of us know Liberals exist on both sides of the aisle and no longer fall for the old trick of party identity, but instead have endeavored to gain some ideological understanding.

While it’s a bit late, I’m happy it’s happening.

Cheers to the IRS and the Elitists who run it!  All the better to see you with…

It appears the current Mayor DeBlasio of New York is also tap dancing…


Will Boehner Retaliate?

Now that John Boehner has narrowly kept his Speakership, will he and his minions retaliate against those who were representing the people of their districts and voted against him?

Because that’s what he would be doing…

He would be retaliating against Us.

If this happens, does he think We will suddenly fall in behind him?

I would suggest that unlikely.

His best course of action may be to take this as a wake-up call and fly right. It’s well past time for more Constitutional Loyalty and less Bipartisanshitt.

But experience has shown us The Establishment Republicans will do the exact opposite of swinging back towards the Constitution…

We will see.

Update:  No need to wait long.  Boehner has now made it clear that he has no intention of listening to us.


LAW!? I AM THE LAW!

Last Night Jack Nicholson revisited his role as Colonel Jessup

Sorry.

IRS Commissioner Koskinen tried to channel Colonel Jessup but failed to generate any of the character’s sympathetic aspects and focused only on the Smugness:

“You have already said, multiple times today, that there was no evidence that you found of any criminal wrongdoing,” Gowdy said. “I want you to tell me: What criminal statutes you have evaluated?”

“I have not looked at any,” the IRS commissioner admitted.

“Well then how can you possibly tell our fellow citizens that there is no criminal wrongdoing if you don’t even know what statutes to look at?” Gowdy followed-up.

“Because I’ve seen no evidence that anyone consciously –“

“Well how would you know what elements of the crime existed? You don’t even know what statutes are in play,” Gowdy said, visibly annoyed. “I’m going to ask you again: What statutes have you evaluated?”

“Uh,” the IRS commissioner stumbled, “I think you can rely on common sense–“

“Common sense? Instead of the criminal code, you want to rely on common sense? No, Mr. Koskinen, you can shake your head all you want to, commissioner. You have said today that there’s no evidence of criminal wrongdoing and I’m asking you what criminal statutes you have reviewed to reach that conclusion.”

“I reviewed no criminal statutes,” said the IRS commissioner.

You want to know what is wrong with our Government?

Commissioner Koskinen is what’s wrong with our Government.  All of the Bureaucrats that see the world as he does are what’s wrong with our Government.  An institution that is so accustomed to ‘being the law’ and see no reason to know the law is what’s wrong with our Government.

Elitist, Smug Liberal Progressives have taken over the Government from the top down.  It happened over time.  It is complete.

Now that there has been an unabridged War declared on the only opposing Ideology it is presenting itself for all to see.

The Koskinen’s, Lerner’s, et al. are coming out of the shadows into the sun.

In light of Jonathan Gruber’s video taped Honesty… I felt this was worth a repost, just as a reminder that they All think you’re Stupid and they’re above your Stupid laws.


“Whenever we can, We follow the Law.”

Hat Tip to Twitchy…  Don’t try that line at your next audit.

From our latest IRS Commissioner who if it wasn’t for his Profoundly Smug Demeanor he would have No Redeeming Qualities comes this:

“Whenever we can, we follow the law.” – John Koskinen (The Progressive Elitist IRS Commissioner)

Well OK then!

I’ll be sure to keep a copy of that quote for my next inquiry from the Internal Revenue Service.

As someone pointed out in the twitchy article, We would like to know when can’t you follow the law… and for what reason?

Why do we tolerate these people?

Why do we kowtow before them?

We do we allow them to keep us in fear?

It’s time to put a bunch of these people in jail.

Do you think they would hesitate to do it to you if you ‘lost’ all of your e-mail and hard drives?  Lied… repeatedly about who was involved in illegal activities?  You posture in the most pompous and arrogant manner possible when expected to explain yourself?

Of course not.

 

 


Dave Brat is Insane

Dave Brat, the man who defeated Eric Cantor, has laid out his campaign platform.

It is Clear he is an extremist. It is Clear he is out of touch with the American People. It is Clear he is on the Wrong Side of History. It is Clear he is Evil. It is Clear he is Insane.

Here are the 6 definitive points making up his platform.  Note the vicious Hatred hidden between his words.

“These principles, are in brief,” Brat said, “first, a commitment to the free market system. Second, equal rights and equal justice for every single person in this nation under law. Third, fiscal responsibility for all levels of government. Fourth, adherence to Constitution of the United States of America to protect our liberties. Fifth, we believe peace is best preserved through a strong national defense. Sixth, and finally, we believe that faith in God as recognized by our founders is absolutely essential to the moral fiber of this greatest nation on the earth.”

“These six principles,” Brat said, “are actually the six principles of the Republican Creed.”

It is no Wonder that the Established Republicans are trying to save us from these types of radical, horrible human beings.

God help us all if Dave Brat becomes a Senator and he really believes all the above.

Only someone who doesn’t understand how it works in Washington D.C. could say such things and mean it in such a way not simply designed to get themselves elected.

What have we done?

(Does anyone really believe Liberals crossed over to vote for Brat in the Primary?  Certainly not the ones that know what’s best for their destructive ideology.)


When I Win, I Win.

When I Lose, I Win.

A lesson from the Liberal Leftist Playbook… and one lost on those who think the Taxed Enough Already Party is over.

There has been much talk today about Rene Ellmers’ winning her Primary in North Carolina. There has also been a lot of comment about the “waning” TEA Party.

I want to clear something up. There is a lesson I learned years ago from the very Socialists I despise. When you win you Win and when you Lose you Win.

The simple fact that Incumbents are being challenged by those “in their party” is a lesson they cannot ignore no matter how much they tell you they are ignoring it. It also serves as a warning to all those currently in office and not up for re-election this cycle that We are Paying Attention… and if you don’t do what you said you were going to do we will force you to run against someone in a primary and take positions on issues you would rather ignore.  The time for words disconnected from action is long past.

The promise of no primary challengers from the Republican Party, Rove and the rest of the RINO Establishment is the biggest scam perpetuated on the electorate. I expect it from Socialist Progressive Democrats who hate this country as it was founded… but not those who profess to uphold the Constitution of the United States and not just the parts they like.

I will now support Ellmers… but…

Let me sum this up, consider the act of having to defend yourself in a Primary to be the Win I’m satisfied with even if I couldn’t replace you as the Republican Candidate. Because next cycle… I’ll still be here and there will be new Primary Challengers to face if those who are elected to represent us don’t get their act together, their mind right and on the same page of the U.S. Constitution.

Sometimes it just about the fight…

And I promise I’m not going anywhere.


Just Appear to Care

After Listening to Rep. Renee Ellmers’, a TEA Party candidate when she Won her Seat, go above and beyond to defend Amnesty for Illegal Aliens it caused me to think a little bit more about this issue and a much, much Larger One.

First, The push back Ellmers received should be a wake-up call for all those who courted, and received, TEA Party support when winning their seats.

Just because you ran and won as a TEA Party Candidate does Not Mean You Get a Pass when it comes to representing those who voted for you.  This is a NEW DAY in politics.  You should expect to be Held Accountable for your Actions once in office.  I realize this concept is completely foreign to the modern political class, but how did Nancy Pelosi put it?  Oh, right… “Embrace the Suck”.

It is long past due to put “Representative” back into Representative Republic.  And that Folks is Why the TEA Party is Hated by every Democrat and 80% of the Current Republican Party.

Second, I have tapped about this in the past.  Le Gran Mentira goes a long way to explain our Relationship with Mexico as well as Is Mexico Responsible for Anything?.

So I’ll leave that alone and you can read those by clicking on the links… if you care.

But there seems to be some Additional Confusion being suffered by those Republicans who are currently supporting Amnesty… or whatever name they are giving it so they can avoid calling it what it is.

It is no secret that the various Chambers of Commerce nationwide tend to represent Small and Medium Business’.  And, it should go without saying that they are logically “pro-business”.  At least one would Hope unless something has Changed.

So one might ask, Why when unemployment is Extremely High (gaming of the unemployment numbers can’t even provide a good rate at this point) would the various Chamber’s want to import 20 Million New Workers into the U.S and hand them Citizenship with all its commiserate rights?

Well here’s why…

These Business Owners live under the illusion that a large immigrant population here “legally” will be working for the low wages the illegal workers are working for now.

This leap of logic is beyond comprehension, but that’s what’s driving this push from the Chamber’s, and the Small and Medium Businesses, who support this push.

It’s Ignorance on a Profound level.

(Do you remember in grade school when you had mastered addition?  When 2+2=4 became easy?  When suddenly your teacher gave you problems that had more than one number in them… so 2+2+9=?… and you thought it was really hard?  Too many of us never quite got past that way of thinking and never learned to solve those problems. (It’s 12 by the way.  I got the problem from a Common Core math assignment.  But don’t worry, You get partial credit for just trying.)  Experience has taught me you don’t have to be smart to own a business… this may just be more proof.)

The only result of allowing a huge influx of what can only be considered citizens into the United States is an explosion of Union Members as well as new Leftist Voters.  That’s it.

Well, that’s not quite “it”.  There will also be an Explosion of new Welfare Recipients…

…which is why as a Libertarian Type I stray from the Doctrine and do Not support Open Borders.  The Poison Pill of Entitlement’s for those who do not work or Overburden Society by being rewarded for mortgaging other people’s productivity destroys the opportunity to throw the borders open to all who want to come and go at their leisure.  The fact our safety net has become a Day Care prevents us from exploring what would otherwise be a terrific chapter in our history.

Also take into account, We Already have illegals Voting in Elections across the U.S.  We already have illegals taking Welfare from this country.

Can we afford to elect More People who will simply accelerate this?  Can we afford to support legislation that promotes this because we were never good a math and it just sounds so nice?

Because that’s what we’re doing.

But all of this brings us to a much larger Issue.

If there is any doubt left in your mind that the Establishment Republicans and the Democrats are the same, makeaneffort at reason.

AmnestySupported by Democrats.  Supported by Establishment Republicans.

IRS TargetingSupported by Democrats.  Becoming clear it is also Supported by Establishment Republicans.

NSA Domestic SpyingSupported by Establishment Republicans.  Becoming clear it is also Supported by Democrats… so long as it doesn’t happen to them.  Right Diane Feinstein?

Obama CareSupported by Democrats.  Supported by Establishment Republicans.  (This Alone should serve as a warning.  Obama Care is the single most destructive Legislation we have seen in most of our lifetimes.  You can’t “Fix” Stupid.  It the ACA is Stupid.)

Spending us into OblivionSupported by Democrats.  Supported by Establishment Republicans.

Militarizing DHSSupported by Establishment Republicans.  Supported by Democrats.

Government Enforced Wage RatesSupported by Democrats.  Becoming clear they are also Supported by Establishment Republicans.

What should you take away from this?

Both Political Parties have become so accustomed needing only the Appearance of Caring in order to get Elected that all connection to our Founding Ideology has been severed.  Now the only philosophy which remains is Socialism… on all sides… or rather, just one side.

It’s time for the Political Revolution we are witnessing right before our eyes.

The fact we take it seriously is reflected in our holding people like Ryan and Ellmers’ feet to the fire.

The Waiting is Over.

It’s Happening Now.

Call it the TEA Party Revolution, call it the “We Can’t Take it Anymore! Revolution”, call it Whatever you Want, just…

Get on Board.

If you Really Care.


“Republicans Suck Slightly Less Than Democrats”

Oddly Enough I agree with Politico’s VandeHei.

Which is why the TEA Party exists.

The win in Florida amounted to retaining a House of Representatives seat for Republicans.  This is not just bad news for Democrats… it’s bad news for the Establishment Republicans as well.  It’s worth noting that the Libertarian Candidate, Will Overby, garnered over 6% of the vote with an investment of $31K.  (For those of you still supporting Obama Care, that’s not very much money to spend when running for office.)  It’s also worth noting that the Republican in this race, David Jolly, was not what most of us would consider… well… worth voting for.

So there you go.

There is panic being felt in Leftist circles Nationwide.  Their Perfect Progressive candidate lost.  And, let’s take a look at That for a moment.

Their Candidate was Alex Sink.

She’s a Smart Stupid Person.  She’s articulate.  She’s well-known.  She’s attractive… and She’s a Girl.

Uh oh.

Sound like anyone we know?  (Ok… not so much the attractive part.  But arguably articulate when not screaming through her nose or doing Amos and Andy impressions.)

That fact, which is NOT being talked about, is the real issue here.

Alex Sink is a Clone of Hillary Clinton…

And She Lost.
