Tag Archives: what do we stand for?

Raise the Voting Age to 21!

It’s long overdue… and You Know It!

The Damage to this Democratic Republic caused by ill informed Voters due to a lack of life experience combined with public education has led to the deaths of millions.  With irresponsible Wars to Economic conditions leading to surges in alcoholism, drug abuse and ultimately suicides, it’s time American Citizens take a Stand!

Join us in SCREAMING,

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

I Challenge all 57 States to do what the bought and paid for D.C. Politicians will not do.  While we have waited patiently the powerhouse K Street Voter Registration Lobbyists have stuffed the pockets of our elected officials with illegitimate and ill educated voters.  21 TIMES UP!

We are going to Put a Stop to the Madness!

The Founders could never have anticipated the caliber of individuals running for elected office in the 21 Century.  There is no way they could have foreseen the complicated issues surrounding our communities like FUnemployment, 27 Genders and counting, The Poor with last years Cell Phone and only Basic Cable.

The is no time to waste.

Please, for the Safety of Women, the Various other Genders and the Children under 26, RAISE THE VOTING AGE TO TWENTY ONE!

Call your local State Representative and DEMAND the Voting Age be Raised to 21!

DO IT NOW!

THERE IS NOT A MOMENT TO LOSE!

Libertarian Dissonance

Or, Who are We?

Over the last 72 hours I’ve heard a growing number of TEA Party Conservative Types trying to square their Libertarian views with what’s going on in Europe.

The dilemma seems to be the Libertarian Ideal of Non-intervention versus the United States’ promises which have been made through Treaties.

I confess… After, After, After being Anti-Socialist, I’m more Libertarian than anything else. Even so, I believe we must honor those commitments made through treaty. It’s True I’m not interested in being the world’s policeman, and I would work diligently to remove the United States from many of the commitments we have made decades past, but until that happens we must honor those we’ve made.

The reason I feel this way is we have nothing on the World stage if not our word.  And I guarantee there will be times we need those who have made agreements with us, the U.S., to honor Their promises.

So here we are… today… facing What it Is, not What we may Wish it to be.

The desire to not intervene is understandable…

Once upon a time, The United States stood for Liberty and Freedom of the Individual. It was a radical idea born out of the Enlightenment. This idea led to the formation of a Nation governed by Law instead of Men.  We used to want Other’s to have Individual Freedom and Liberty…

We used to have a Mission.  But we have wandered far from those ideals once at the forefront of our Foreign Policy and most importantly our Domestic Policy.

Because of that I can relate to those out there who believe we need to focus on our own home-grown problems at this point in time.

And,

Do I want to run around the world and commit Men and Material in defense of people I do not know, who apparently don’t like us?  No, I don’t.

I would prefer Countries in need of our help ask us directly… that would be the alternative to treaties as far as I’m concerned. You need us? Just Yell so Everyone can hear you.  If you decide to champion Freedom and Liberty of the Individual, we’ll help.  If not, you’re on your own.  Good Luck.

But those are not the circumstances at the moment.  We have Obligations, whether we like them or not.

But that really isn’t the issue in my opinion.

The Real Problem is what makes us any different from those we wish to oppose?

That should be the Primary Question facing all of us as we watch Russia “take back” what they believe to be theirs.

What do we stand for?

Why Should the Ukraine, or any other Nation for that matter, ask for our help?

What do we represent that is worth those in other Countries to risk dying for?

These are not rhetorical questions… I’m not sure I know anymore. And I don’t think they do either, which may be why they’re not asking for our help.

All of this aside, promoting a position of standing aside because of Libertarian principles, or because you might enjoy this current Administration looking like Fools (Which they most certainly do…) is to allow those who see the faults of Communism/Socialism to remain Slaves of it.

At the End of the Day I am Anti-Socialist first. All other things second. I am not interested in giving anything to Socialists, Ever. Ever.

I hope there will be more Thinking about where this is all headed and less Reveling in the Mess created by Progressive Buffoons.  Yes, they’re idiots who cause more problems than they solve… so vote accordingly.  Right now we have a problem and it has to do with the disappearance of American Exceptionalism.

(I will issue only one warning… there will be those Progressive-Liberal Republicans like McCain and Graham out on the networks hoping to win favor with people like me.   They will not. They are a distinction without a difference when it comes to Socialism. Their time, that should never have come, is past.)

The events we’ve seen unfolding over the last several years from Georgia to Syria to Cyprus to Ukraine… to Russian Destroyers in Cuba to North Korea getting the Nuke and the Means to send it, to China poking Japan and promising to “unify” Taiwan and on and on… all leads to it “not being okay”.

There is a War going on.

All is not Calm.

And if we don’t take a position the rest of the world hears and understands clearly, all will not be calm.

What Position will that be?

What will we Stand Tall for?

(As an Aside:  The Libertarians have a similar problem with Immigration.  Ideally we are Open Borders.  The Problem is the Poison Pill of the Entitlement State.  Too many of us fail to recognize a Trap even when it is made By Fools.  Which makes Us Fools.  That’s why we must Makeaneffort.)


Novaya Sovietsky

Why is the United States bowing before the New Soviet?

This is a surprising simple question with a surprising simple answer.

Why the United States will do nothing to confront The Rise of The New Soviet is because our current Administration, and more frighteningly our entire Bureaucracy, share the same Base Ideology.

That’s it.

How can you possible fight a Battle on Ideological grounds when there is no difference in Ideology? We are seeing this clearly right here at home.  We are seeing it within our own political battles between the parties.  We are being presented the Distinctions without the Differences on a Daily basis. Now we are seeing how that translates to Foreign Policy.  “Just Concede!”

But what are you conceding?

Let me ask you folks, what is it that the United States stands for?

Free Market Capitalism?

Freedom and Liberty of the Individual?

Property Rights?

Privacy Rights?

Freedom of Religion?

Freedom to Choose?

None of the Above?….  So What Exactly?

If you can’t answer this you’re not alone.  Officials at the highest level in our Government cannot provide a cogent answer to this question and then point to any of their Actions which prove it.  As far as those in charge are concerned the forced implementation of Socialism overseas is nothing different from what is being achieved by current Domestic Policy.  It’s for their own good… They look over the horizon and see no problems.

In fact, its Good that Citizens of The World realize their Governments will be Weaponized and used against them.  It provides Order!

In the back of their minds Our Homegrown Leftist-Progressives are hoping Putin gets it right this time…  and if he doesn’t, they are hoping to get it right here at home.

Georgia has fallen, Ukraine is next.

Eastern Europe should be very concerned knowing there is no one remaining in the world who Champion’s Individual Rights and Personal Freedom.

They must feel as lonely as we do.

The Enlightened Age of Man and Nation of Laws is over.

We are Witnessing the Dawn of the Mob… The Dawn of Democratic Socialism.

(BTW: A couple of Weeks ago while watching the Opening Ceremonies of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games I stated the only thing missing from the Show was a groups of “volunteers” belting out the International in Russian.  Well, Putin one-upped me… The Closing Ceremonies provided the World with a group of “Volunteer Children” to belt out the International in Russian.  Well played Vlad… Well Played.)
