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.

From the anals of Washington Elitist Government comes the latest in ‘How to get things done when the American Public is just too Stupid to understand‘.
This is why Cynicism is the Only, Constant and Always method to view those we elect… especially those we vote for.
Republican Leftist Paul Ryan has joined Democrat Leftist Progressive Nancy Pelosi in the Jonathan Gruber School of Governing with his latest demand that you will only be allowed to see what’s in the Obamatrade Act after your representatives Pass it.
I don’t believe you need to be reminded what a debacle Obamacare is… and getting worse. So I won’t.
Now we’re told that we are again too stupid to be allowed to see what’s in a sweeping, certainly not limited to what we would think is “trade”, Trade Act before we are all subject to it.
From what small snippets have been leaked, and adding together soundbites from the three people who have at least gone down to the Capital Dungeon to ‘read’ it, there is enough for everyone to hate. The Washington Elites would tell you “That’s how the sausage is made, and it represents a ‘Good Compromise‘.” I would offer it is also how fecal matter is made and represents the very same… just like Obamacare.
So we are told by a supposed “Conservative” that we must pass it to see what’s in it.
Clearly the Democrats who oppose it are not interested in ‘passing it to see what’s in it’… primarily because they are not at all sure they will hold the Presidency in the next term, and are not interested in the profound power which will be moved from the Legislative Branch to the Executive Branch.
And the few “Constitutional Originalists” we have left in the Conservative Movement (read ‘non-leftist’) who are still acting that way, oppose it because it will amount to several anti-capitalist results.
First, there can be little doubt that our allies in Europe have prolonged the Doom of Greece, and the Drowning of the EU, in the hopes that something in the deal Bails out their Socialist Union Scheme which many of us said would fail. We knew this back in the Nineties because people and nations lie… and always will… nothing is new under the sun. (Note: Jeb Bush is meeting with European leaders who are looking for reassurance should he become president that he would not interfere with this new, expected to be shoved down the throats of the American People, EU Bail Out/Trade Act.)
We must begin asking ourselves why American Tax Dollars should continue to go to bailing out Failed Socialist Schemes and the long-dead Socialist ideology those schemes are built upon. Reinforcing Oppression, Death and Destruction should not be a committment made by The United States of America. The Western Socialist Democracies need to be allowed Fail on their own so they will modify their behavior. They have survived at the teat of American Free-Market Capitalism (in what feeble form it exists) for well over 100-years. The time is Now to Stop Enabling Elitist Control and Class Stasis of Fascist/Socialist A-Holes. But it starts at home…
Second, there is little doubt that this ‘Trade’ bill will magically include Immigration Powers not before held by the Executive Branch. Just as the Commerce Clause has over time been perverted to mean just about anything, and everything, depending on what some person in power wanted it to mean…
Now it will be ‘Trade’. We have mechanisms in place to deal with immigration, but the survival of the Leftist Socialist-Fascist movement in this country depends on new government dependants. Whether these dependants are from other countries, or home-grown, doesn’t matter to the Socialists. As long as they get to vote… and vote for their redistributed ‘paycheck’, Liberalism survives.
Third, this Act will certainly create the very same type of Socialist Symbiosis represented by the European Union and carry with it the very same ‘certain to fail’ model. Just like Obamacare destroying the finest Medical system on the planet, why do we do this to ourselves? The answer is simple. The Socialists believe that it’s not the failure of their ideas. Rather, it’s that their ideas have never been allowed to catch up to the wild success of Self Determination and Free-Market Capitalism (in what feeble form it exists). They continue to fully subscribe to centralized control while anointing themselves Philosopher Kings. It truly is a Fatal Conceit.
Sure… if you’re Leftist Progressive you might think this is super cool. But once you think past the Trees and see the Forest (Something most Liberals are intentionally never taught to do) you clearly see that these powers are assigned to the Executive Branch, not just Liberal leftist Socialist progressives when they hold the Executive Branch. Thus the push back from the Leftists… and frankly, a main reason the Leftist Light Republicans support it.
The United States is now run by those who seek to protect Government from us, not protect us from Government.
Are we going to allow Jonathan Gruber to be correct when he says “The American People are too Stupid to know what’s going on.”?
We proved him right not long ago with Obamacare…
