“A republic if you can keep it,” is a quote attributed to Benjamin Franklin when he was asked by a lady what type of government we had. It is critical that we note that Franklin did not say, a democracy if you can keep it. The founders understood the difference between a republic and a democracy. They chose a republic because they envisioned that what they had created would last for a long time. Our republic is under attack today like never before and it is being attacked by a political party, the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party, for the very reasons the founders rejected a democracy and favored a republic.
A democracy is rule by the majority. Our founders, who were students of history, governments, and philosophy, understood that democracies quickly become tyrannies. The reason this is so is because rule by the majority is always used to eliminate the rights of the minority. As rights of the minority are eliminated, those members of the minority are no longer considered a part of the political group eligible to vote. As the number considered to be a party of the political group eligible to vote becomes smaller and smaller. A tyranny is created because the demands of a very few, perhaps even one, become the rules of all.
A republic is established with the intent to always protect the liberty of the individual and to always protect the rights of the minority. This is why we have the Bill of Rights. The opposition to adopte the Bill of Rights was not because those people opposed the liberties protected, but because they said the Bill of Rights would be redundant since the rights of the individual and the minority were already protected in the Constitution. Those who favored adopting the Bill of Rights stated that any redundancy to protect the liberty of the individual and the rights of the minority could not be overdone. Nancy Pelosi, her understanding of the founding and the Constitution are terribly perverted so as to ask if she has any concept as to why we revolted, what the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, or the Bill of Rights really mean and why we have them, stated in her incorrect interpretation, that the founders were against having a king. This is true in the most rudimentary form. The founders feared more than anything, the tyranny of the majority and big government that would, as Patrick Henry stated, “dominate the lives and thoughts of the people.”
Today we have the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party advocating for everything the founders feared; they are advocating for a democracy and a big government that “dominates the lives and thoughts of the people.” We have seen the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party dismantle our Republic during the coup attempt against a Constitutionally elected president by totally dismissing and abolishing the rights of the minority. We have consistently heard the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party advocate for a democracy by dismantling our Republic and the rights of the minority through the obliteration of the electoral college. We are seeing the Republic being dismantled through the court system championed by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party as they campaign for the obliteration of individual liberties by restricting the right to life of the unborn, restricting the right to worship God without state sponsored religion as they establish secularism as the state sponsored religion, we witness the curtailment of freedom of speech by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) enforcing a limitation on what they call hate speech or phrases and words they consider to be politically incorrect, and we are witnessing the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) eliminating the right of citizens to peaceably assemble by their encouragement of such hate groups as ANTIFA and BLM to disrupt assembly of groups with whom they disagree.
In the next coming days or weeks, we will witness the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) attack our Constitution by their perversion of the concept of impeachment. The impeachment clause was not just some clause carelessly thrown into the Constitution, but was carefully considered and discussed. The founders feared the very thing that has just happened and that is that a rogue and irresponsible group would impeach a duly elected President because they disliked the individual and/or disagreed with the political agenda of the individual. The standard for impeachment was set very high. The current rogue and irresponsible House has just lowered that standard to dislike and disagreement, just as the founders feared.
When our founders formed our nation, they understood they would also have to form a government. Make no mistake, the founders understood that any government they would form, it would be that government that would be the single biggest threat to the freedoms they had just won. To try to protect those freedoms, the founder created a republic. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is proving the founders to be correct; the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are destroying the republic for a democracy, so they can bring about the tyranny of government from which we originally revolted.
If you are a Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) and disagree with anything I have stated, please, not with emotion with such inane comments as Trump is a liar and racist, but with facts and rational arguments, show me where you believe me to be wrong.
If you agree with what I said, I challenge you to thoroughly understand what I said. Please no bumper sticker phrases or 30 second sound bites but cogent reasons. Once you understand, you can become a freedom fighter by beginning to be an irate tireless minority that is keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of others. If you have not already done so, I would strongly suggest you get “The Road to Tyranny” and “Two Visions of America” that will clearly outline why it is critical that you join this cause and how you can effectively set brushfires of freedom.
Some quick observations:
Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, and Chavez are alive and well, just different bodies but the same minds and philosophies. They were on the stage alive and well.
On a lighter side:
Bernie’s hair was combed.
Steyer needs a better whitener
Biden said he and Islamic Jihad sympathizer, Comrade Obama defeated ISIS. That must have been in the same world where Hunter is.
Buttigieg is the best; he is the best talker without saying anything. Give him a high mark for his attempt to be compassionate and emotional.
Warner evaded the question of whether she stated that Sanders told her a woman could not win. She is becoming adept at deflecting her lies but then she has had a lot of practice.
More serious if we can find any truly serious parts:
When you read this, you better say something to yourself, pinch yourself, jump once or twice to make sure you still exist. Climate cooling, warming, change or whatever will kill you more likely today as opposed to in a week unless we immediately redistribute American wealth, which we gained, you understand, because we are the worst of the imperialist nations, to any deemed to be oppressed. Are you still there? If you are, do you know where Hunter is?
The conclusion on health care is to adopt the health care systems of Cuba and Venezuela. Everybody has a “right” to government funded health care in those countries.
Not one of the people on the stage, but then very few people who identify with the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party, would have supported the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States, and certainly not the Bill of Rights. The Revolution and our Documents came about because of the American dream of individual liberty or individualism which includes capitalism, rule of law, limited government, divided government, and sovereignty of the people. The solution for every single solution was government. The solution for a collectivist is always government.
Our founders feared government and that is why they drafted and ratified a Constitution, and then insisted on the Bill of Rights, that protected the people from the government. This is how the founders viewed government, which they knew and has proven to be correct.
The very definition of tyranny is when all powers are gathered under one place. James Madison
Experience hath shown that even under the best forms of government, those entrusted with power have in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny. Thomas Jefferson
What the differences we heard on the stage were that all wanted to gather all power in the government to pervert power into tyranny, just at a different pace.
This is the song and dance of the climate warming, cooling, change, oh who knows what claimers. Australia is burning because some of you decided they would start fires and then claim “the world is ending" unless we immediately take everything from the imperialists, mostly the United States, and give to the oppressed. Just like Elizabeth Warren’s claim about Bernie Sanders saying a woman could not win will gain no traction because Warren is infamous for her tall tales, so claims about the disaster caused by climate whatever gain less and less traction.
Here is a history of claims made by the climate whatever people, who really are collectivists following the direction of Marx to take from the imperialists and give to the oppressed. Remember the criteria for imperialist and oppressor is flexible and can mean whoever or whatever you want.

Doomsdays That Didn’t Happen: 50 Years Of Failed Climate Predictions
The Competitive Enterprise Institute has put together a lengthy compilation of apocalyptic predictions dating back decades that did not come to pass, timed as Democratic presidential candidates and climate activists refocus attention on the issue. The dire predictions, often repeated in the media, warned of a variety of impending disasters – famine, drought, an ice age, and even disappearing nations – if the world failed to act on climate change. An Associated Press headline from 1989 read “Rising seas could obliterate nations: U.N. officials.” The article detailed a U.N. environmental official warning that entire nations would be eliminated if the world failed to reverse warming by 2000.
Then there were the fears that the world would experience a never-ending “cooling trend in the Northern Hemisphere.” That claim came from an “international team of specialists” cited by The New York Times in 1978. Just years prior, Time magazine echoed other media outlets in suggesting that “another ice age” was imminent. “Telltale signs are everywhere — from the unexpected persistence and thickness of pack ice in the waters around Iceland to the southward migration of a warmth-loving creature like the armadillo from the Midwest,” the magazine warned in 1974. The Guardian similarly warned in 1974 that “Space satellites show new Ice Age coming fast.” In 1970, The Boston Globe ran the headline, “Scientist predicts a new ice age by 21st century.” The Washington Post, for its part, published a Columbia University scientist’s claim that the world could be “as little as 50 or 60 years away from a disastrous new ice age.”
Some of the more dire predictions came from Paul Ehrlich, a biologist who famously urged population control to mitigate the impacts of humans on the environment. Ehrlich, in 1969, warned that “everybody” would “disappear in a cloud of blue steam in 20 years,” The New York Times reported. According to The Salt Lake Tribune, Ehrlich, warning of a “disastrous” famine,” urged placing “sterilizing agents into staple foods and drinking water.” Those predictions were made around the time former President Richard Nixon created the Environmental Protection Agency. Since then, the U.S. has adopted a series of environmental reforms aimed at limiting emissions.
Years after those initial predictions, media outlets and politicians continue to teem with claims of apocalyptic scenarios resulting from climate change. Earlier this month, leading Democratic presidential candidates held a town hall on the issue and warned about the “existential” threat posed by a changing climate. Before the end of the month, 2020 candidates are expected to have another climate forum at Georgetown University. CEI’s report came just before the U.N. Climate Action Summit on Sept. 23, an event that promises to “spark the transformation that is urgently needed and propel action that will benefit everyone.”
It also came a week after Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., warned that Miami would be gone in a “few years” because of climate change. She was responding to critics of her ambitious “Green New Deal,” which seeks to reach net-zero emissions within just decades. Ocasio-Cortez, whose plan has been endorsed by leading presidential candidates, previously joked that the world would end in 12 years if it didn’t address climate change.
But short-term predictions weren’t a laughing matter in the years following “An Inconvenient Truth,” a documentary produced by former Vice President Al Gore. In 2008, ABC released an ominous video about what the world would look like in 2015. As the video warned about rising sea levels, a graphic showed significant portions of New York City engulfed by water. Gore himself famously predicted in the early 2000s that Arctic ice could be gone within seven years. At the end of seven years, Arctic ice had undergone a period of expansion.
So, on and on we go, “the sky is falling, you must redistribute immediately.” And yet those who cry the loudest continue to get rich like Gore, and fly on private jets to conferences to decry climate whatever. Come on, give me a break. We have real problems like Islamic Terrorism that you climate hoaxers protect and champion, like creating poverty, homelessness, and horrible conditions that dominate collectivist nations and U. S. states that you collectivists control. Any rationale person can only conclude that the real problem is you the collectivist.
The Democrat party is the Marxist/Progressive party. This is true because the Democrat party of today advocates for the very policies Karl Marx said where necessary to bring about what he called a classless society. Marx’s classless society would be a society where all the people thought the same thing, totally conforming, and all the people were equal financially and socially. It would be the order of business for the Dictatorship of the Proletariat to make this happen in any and every way necessary, including force.
If you listen to the so called Democrat debate this evening, and I would encourage you to suffer through it with me, you will hear every single person on the stage advocate the very policies Marx said would be necessary to transform the United States to a Marxist totalitarian state, the very state Islamic Jihad sympathizer, Comrade Obama said would happen when he proclaimed in November of 2008 that he would fundamentally transform the United States.
Donald Trump will be painted as a demagogue and evil every time his name is mentioned this evening. President Trump is an enemy of the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) movement. President Trump believes in and has taken actions to restore the principles upon which our nation was founded so we could remain free and retain our liberty. These American values include individualism of which capitalism is a part, rule of law, limited government, divided government, and sovereignty of the people with the government being the servant. Collectivists believe in exactly the opposite.
You will hear every person who is campaigning to become the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) nominee advocate for:
More control by the government over business and all private property through more government regulations.
Higher tax rates (confiscation rates) on the personal property of the individual, their income.
Higher tax rates (confiscation rates) on any accumulated wealth while the person is alive and at their death.
Government control of lending, beginning with the students, by having the government chose who should have their debt relieved.
Centralizing more control on means of communication and transportation with the government.
Free education for all. This will not be stated as the reason but what Lenin, Mao, Hitler, and every collectivist leader has done has used education as a primary tool for indoctrination, the same thing we see happening in the United States today.
Redistribution of wealth with those who achieve being demonized as greedy and selfish and their income redistributed based on some government mandated means to bring about “income equality.”
A call for “social justice” which is a call for the government to have full and total control over the lives of its citizens, including their thoughts so as to properly conform, and providing a basis on which to punish and eliminate those who would act contrary to the demands of the party. The American Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is calling for total conformity in things such as adherence to many convoluted and nature defying beliefs on biology, adherence to genocide through the murder of unborn children, government or party control of all through the surrendering of arms, adherence to our nations surrendering of our wealth and our sovereignty based on a manufactured crisis called climate change, our surrendering of a critical liberty for any free nation, freedom of speech, under the guise of political correctness, and government control over health coverage and health care which Lenin declared to be essential for a Marxist totalitarian state.
Everything for which the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) candidates will be advocating comes from the writings and teachings of Marx and the policies implemented by all collectivist tyrants including Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Castro, Pol Pot, and Chavez. If you believe in freedom and liberty and the American way as determined by our founders, it is critical that you understand what I have stated and then become a warrior for freedom and liberty by setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of others. We can not prevail by winning arguments, but can only prevail by helping to bring change in the minds of those who would vote for a Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) because they believe it is compassionate.
A great place for you to start to understand the drastic contrast between what these Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) candidates are claiming will bring about freedom and prosperity and the actual results and how drastically what they are advocating differs from the very principles that built our country, order today “The Road to Tyranny” and “Two Visions of America.” Read them and understand what liberty and freedom are and how and why the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) want to take it from you. Then begin immediately to set brushfires of freedom in the minds of others.
This is Joe’s fourth try to be president. It would appear this time will end the same way as the other times; that is Joe will tell us he is a team player and will support the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) candidate. He might even claim a small victory this time because he could gain more delegates than in the past. In 1984, Joe won ONE delegate. In 1988, Joe doubled that and won TWO delegates. Then in 2008, the floor broke below Joe as he won ZERO delegates, but his good friend, or so Joe says, Comrade Obama thought Joe could balance the ticket and Comrade Obama asked Joe to be his second. Today Comrade Obama won’t even wave to Joe when they pass each other on the street.
The news for Joe now is that, after having a huge lead in Iowa with polling showing he had support over 35%, now the former vice president sits in fourth place in the latest Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom Iowa Poll. U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders tops the poll with 20% support. Then comes a tight pack: U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is next with 17%; former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, with 16%; and Biden with 15%. And even worse news for Biden, is another so called debate will take place on Tuesday evening.
Remember, Biden is claimed to be the only moderate in the above list of people. The leader, Bernie Sanders says he is a Democratic Socialist. All Socialists claim they are Democratic. Democracies quickly become Tyrannical Collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) countries. The other two ahead of Joe are also collectivists. Study who they are and what they propose, and you will also come to the same conclusion.
Why would Joe be having such a problem. Of course, his biggest problem is that he is Joe, and just can never get anything correct. In an interview with the Des Moines Register, Joe Biden lamented the ongoing crisis in Venezuela. The 77-year-old former vice president described President Donald Trump's foreign policy toward the region as "irresponsible" to the newspaper's editorial board.
"Look what's going on in Venezuela right now...millions of people are crossing the border destabilizing Bolivia," he said. Bolivia has no common border with Venezuela, and Trump’s policy toward Venezuela is the opposite of the Democrats in that many within the Obama regime plus Sanders praised Venezuela as the American dream as the government took over all private property and totally socialized Venezuela. Today the people are starving, health care is non-existent, and the country is in the typical state of any socialized country, that is despair, desperation, and without any hope.
Joe has bigger problems than not knowing policy or geography, and that is that he does not remember that he is living in the age of taping and recording. Joe has always been one to say what he thought was required of him and not what he truly believed, of course perhaps that is because he has no real beliefs. Time after time the Joe on the recording is saying exactly what the current Joe said he never said. Normally the press would describe this as lying or at least being in consistent, but in the days when the press believe they are not investigative reporters but promoters of all that is collectivist, they say this is just Joe being Joe. The public seems to disagree.
More and more we are learning that Joe being Joe is not acceptable to Americans. Joe seeming to have 9 hands and not being able to control any of them anytime he is around a woman or a girl is no longer popular in the days of Epstein and Weinstein. People seem not to care that Joe believes he can win push up contests.
Where is Hunter???? Joe, using Hunter to enrich his family is becoming more and more a problem as Hunter finds more and more ways to draw attention to him. Joe was able to get his brother, who had never built anything, a $1.5B contract building homes in Iraq. Joe was able to get Hunter on the criminal company Burisma, and was able to have at least $2.5B dollars moved to Hunter’s investment company of three weeks from China, but Joe was not able to control his chip of the old block when it came to controlling his hands.
When Joe determines he wants to spend more time with his family and thus has to drop from the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) race for president, there will be much speculation. For sure Hunter will enter that discussion. But that Joe could not win over three die hard committed collectivists, Sanders, Warren, and Buttigieg, can only be because there is just too much Joe in Joe.
It was not by chance that political parties were not mentioned in any of our founding documents. The founders were very familiar with political parties. They had existed in Britain and existed in the American Colonies. Interestingly they did not play a part in the Continental Congress nor in the Constitutional Convention. That is not to say that there were not differences, but the end goal of the members of both the Continental Congress and the Constitutional Convention were the same and that was to provide freedom and liberty for all.
What George Washington knew must be avoided was the growing of political parties, understanding that the differences and animosity inherent with political parties would become damaging to the country. Washington understood that unless the end goal of the citizens was to maintain and even promote greater liberty for citizens, which meant less government intrusion and control, the end result would be the loss of the freedom and liberty for which he and the other colonists paid such a high price.
George Washington told his fellow Americans, both current and future in his farewell address:
“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
This has happened. Today we have a political party that under the guise of impeachment, believes it can conduct a coup attempt against a duly elected president because it both hates and disagrees with that duly elected president. This political party has determined the United States Constitution is an outdated document and as such can be interpreted any way it deems necessary to bring power and glory to itself. This political party has determined that equality should now be placed above individual liberty, that conformity to the dictates of this political party is of greater importance than are the liberties of the individual, and that adherence to the philosophy of the party dictates that the United States is the most evil imperialist nation and must as such surrender its sovereignty and adherence to the principle of individualism, the very principle that propelled the nation for which George Washington paid such a tremendous price, must be abandoned.
This political party, for reasons unknown other than hatred and jealousy of a duly elected president, is praising and defending an individual and people who declared war against the United States years ago and has continued that war. This same individual and people have declared time after time their wish to bring death to our country and us as individuals. This individual and people have conducted activities to do exactly that. This individual had been designated a terrorist and enemy of the United States years prior to the current duly elected president taking office. Yet, when the terrorist is eliminated, the political party pours heaps of praise upon him and condemns the duly elected president in the harshest terms possible.
The only plausible explanation of the actions of this political party is because they, as George Washington stated would happen, are cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled people who have as their goal to subvert the power of the people and usurp for themselves the reins of government and destroying the principles of freedom and liberty. This should come as no surprise as the previous president, a member of said political party, stated that it was his purpose to transform the United States from a nation of freedom and liberty to a Marxist totalitarian state.
Mr. President, (George Washington) I wish you had been wrong, but just as you knew you had to cross the Delaware that Christmas and surprise the enemy, you foresaw the evil of political parties and how eventually one political party would place their desire for power and control over freedom and liberty and the good of the people.
How and why would any American who claims to support the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States including the Bill of Rights in way support Anti semite policies? Why would these Americans not condemn harshly the attacks on people, simply because they are of Jewish descent and/or are religious Jews? When we stated we would be a nation that supports freedom and liberty for all, all includes Jewish people, or at least I thought it did.
How and why would our press and freedom loving Americans not be demanding a full and independent investigation into the downing of the Ukraine Airline at 8000 feet on takeoff from the Tehran airport? The black box has been recovered, but Tehran refuses to make it available. Why? If something was wrong with the plane, we should know. If the accident was caused by pilot error, we should know. If the plane was shot down, intentionally or unintentionally, we should know.
Why do talk show hosts dwell on what they call double standards and lies of the left? What a waste of time and oh so redundant. The collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) have only one consistent axiom and that is that “the ends always justify the means.” Outrageous double standards, bigger and bigger lies, exaggerations, or whatever would be their only strategy. Please talk show hosts, stop stating the obvious and playing endless soundbites proving the doubled standards, lies, and exaggerations of the left and start discussing the essence of why their mantra is so damaging and always brings about tyranny.
We have as our first lady a truly intelligent, gracious, and beautiful, both inside and outside, first lady. She has truly brought to the nation all that is good about our country. She is a citizen, not because she was born here, but because she specifically chose to be an American. Every American who believes in the rightness of freedom and liberty should champion this wonderful person and hold her as an example of what it means to be an American to the rest of the world.
How can any American who claims to support freedom and liberty justify in any way the adherence to Sharia law, which is the antithesis of all of the precepts upon which our nation was founded? Sharia law justifies murder, both of family members and non-Muslims, Sharia law justifies rape, it glorifies pedophilia, it exonerates telling falsehoods, it insists on enslaving and subjecting to humiliation all non-Muslims, it violates virtually every American standard.
How can any American who claims to support freedom and liberty justify in any way the actions of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) darlings, Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA. Both groups openly call for and practice the killing of law enforcement personnel. Both groups call for and prevent the free expression of speech and thought, which is not only protected under our First Amendment, but is the lifeblood of a free society and eliminated in any tyranny.
Is Hunter Biden a chip off the old block, a delinquent, a prodigal, or a wild child now simply being used by his father as a financial conduit? Will the revelations about Hunter be the downfall of Joe?
Please, any person, give me answers and thoughts on any and or all of these random questions, or add any additional random questions you believe should be discussed.
What we know for sure is that the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party has been moving more and more to the left. It is hard to believe that John Kennedy was a member of that party, yes the same John Kennedy that confronted the Soviet Union, the same John Kennedy that supported law and order, the same John Kennedy who called for a tax cut, and the same John Kennedy who had a sense of humor. That John Kennedy would be harangued and ostracized by the mainstream of the current Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party.
The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is now a party that believes in unlimited confiscation of the personal assets of its citizens. We have a constant calling for the federal government retaining more and more of what it considers to be the governments property, that which at one time was considered to be private personal property, the incomes and wealth of the citizen.
The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is now the party that believes it is a crime for our military to kill military personal who have declared their intent to kill Americans and have held good on their declarations.
The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is now the party that openly states and supports any and all policies that increase conformity and equality and reduce liberty and freedom. (if you do not fully understand this statement it is imperative that you get and read the books, “The Road to Tyranny” and “Two Visions of America”.)
The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is now the party that declares that even somebody as radical and far left as is Joe Biden, that they are not radical and far left enough to be a member of the modern Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party.
This is what the leader of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party recently stated:
During a recent interview, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, leader of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party, complained about having to share the same political party as presidential candidate Joe Biden. The comments came after the Representative was asked about the role she imagines herself playing in Congress if Joe Biden ends up being president of the United States, assuming she is still in Congress following the 2020 election.
“Oh, God," Ocasio-Cortez exclaimed. "In any other country, Joe Biden and I would not be in the same party, but in America, we are.”
Yes, you who vote for a Democrat, you are supporting the party lead by self proclaimed socialist Ocasio-Cortez.
No, I am not discussing the headlines of today because nobody will remember them tomorrow, or at least come next week.
The liberal press has completely ignored the Golden Globes while the conservative press has covered the comments by Gervais in greater detail. I side with the liberal press on this one because what Gervais says is of no relevance just as anything that comes from Hollywood has absolutely no relevance. Hollywood truly is the ignorant leading the ignorant. America agrees with me seeing as how this self-worship program of Hollywood continues in tis downward rating spin along with all Hollywood self-worship programs and its industry in general. Perhaps Americans are realizing that people who have the capacity to memorize and regurgitate lines others have written have nothing meaningful to add to meaningful topics.
The press in general is fixating on the killing of a sworn enemy of the United States. Qasem Soleimani. Within a few days there will be another story dominating and all the arguments concerning this sworn enemy of the United States will be forgotten. Nevertheless, there are some lessons to learn. The first is that all Americans should be celebrating the elimination of this terrorist, just as all Americans celebrated the elimination of Osama Bin Laden. Americans, regardless of party, understood that Americans were safer with Osama Bin Laden gone and ignored that it was Islamic Jihadist sympathizer and Comrade Obama who ordered the elimination of Osama Bin Laden. We Conservatives applauded this action and placed country above party. We also understood that Obama’s action did not in any way violate the Constitution of the United States. Perhaps that is because we have actually read and studied the Constitution and use it as our guideline and not as a political tool to be twisted to fit our political ends. We Conservatives also recognize that people who have as their main mantra, “Death to America” are our enemies and will not use their elimination to promote division for political gain but will support the action that clearly makes us safer.
The press continues to be fixated on what they call impeachment but what is clearly a coup. The impeachment proceedings have shown all that is wrong in America when people place party above country; when people allow hatred to overcome rationale debate; and when people elect to ignore basic freedom of principles such as fairness and rule of law as they place party over country. If in fact the press was concentrating on the real issue in this story, that real issue being a rogue political party committing an illegal coup, shamelessly obliterating the United States Constitution, and openly declaring that a specific party has the right to veto an election and to eliminate our time honored process of peaceful transition of power, this whole fiasco perhaps could bring about good in the face of evil. But the press being dominated by Anti Americans, has opted for headlines and not impartial investigation.
Meanwhile the overall fight to preserve America as a free and independent nation or to bring about the fundamental transformation promised by Comrade Obama continues to be ignored by all aspects of the press. At the heart of this fundamental transformation is will the Untied States continue to champion the liberty of each individual or will we succumb to the forces of the left to replace individual liberty with government demanded conformity and equality.
Liberty and equality cannot coexist. They are polar opposites. Our Declaration of Independence clarifies this point, but what we know is most Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have either not read and studied this document declaring our freedom from a tyrannical government, or they have chosen to ignore the precepts of the Declaration of Independence because they adamantly disagree with them. Jefferson said that all are born as political, social, and economic equals. All are born with equal liberty. It is the exercise of this liberty that brings about the inequalities. These inequalities are present politically, socially, and economically. This is what brings about the strength of a free nation. Because we are all individually unique with different talents and aspirations, we will bring strength to the society in many different ways. It is when we are all equals and our talents and aspirations are demanded to conform to the dictates of the group, that societies become weak and struggle.
It is these demands by the group, generally those with the power of the government, that is the very definition of tyranny. The more the individual is encouraged and allowed to pursue their dreams and desires, the more liberty abounds, the more freedom reigns, and the healthier, more robust, and higher standard of living for all exists within the society. Because the press, for the most part, favors equality, or tyranny, over liberty, they will not investigate nor report on this truth. It is we the people who believe in liberty that must thoroughly understand why liberty brings prosperity and equality destroys prosperity, why liberty enhances freedom for all and equality results in tyranny, and why liberty is essential to knowledge and advancement and equality squelches thirst for learning, because it is only once we understand beyond the bumper stickers and sound bites that we can become a meaningful part of the tireless minority that is keen on setting brushfires of freedom.
I have been accused of being hateful and divisive, and to those who would disagree with me perhaps this is appropriate. Benedict Arnold grew to believe that Washington and the members of the Continental Congress were hateful and divisive. When people have completely different ideas on how they view the world, how they respond to those differences to a large degree depends on their basic philosophy. To view those with whom we disagree as hateful and divisive is at the very core of the philosophy now being perpetrated by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats); that philosophy of collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same). Individualists, those who understand that life, liberty, and property is at the behest of the Creator and not man nor government, believe that differences between people are because people are different and the right to have these different ideas is not only a natural right from the Creator but also strengthens and does not weaken a society.
I have stated and believe that the core of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party of today hates the United States of America. When I make this statement, I do not mean that they hate geographical area of the lower 48 and Hawaii and Alaska, but that they hate every principle upon which our nation was founded. That would mean they hate the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States including the Bill of Rights, and they hate the Bible and all Judeo/Christian principles. The principles and teachings of the previously mentioned teach that natural rights are from the Creator and government’s only role is to protect those natural rights. These previously mentioned also celebrate the uniqueness of the individual and that the role of government is to protect and celebrate those differences.
The collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) believe that each individual is first and foremost a small part of a group and that the individual has as their primary function to adhere to the dictates of the group and to conform in all ways to the dictates of the group. The collectivist redefines right, and states that anything which makes the group more homogeneous is the obligation of the individual and that the only rights that exist are those that emanate directly from the authority of the group. This is the core of the collectivists belief system, and because this belief system is in direct opposition to the essence of the Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution including the Bill of Rights, and the Bible, the collectivist must do everything they can to destroy any and all belief in these above mentioned.
Karl Marx stated that in order to bring about a transformation to his classless society, a society that would be totally conforming and totally equal, all long standing principles (The Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution including the Bill of Rights), all morality, and all religion (Marx said his classless society must be a Godless society), must be destroyed. This is exactly what the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party is saying must be done. Listen to them. The United States was formed to be a country that protects life, liberty, and property and does not limit or regulate them. The United States was formed to enable the individual to rise above any limits the group might want to impose and for each to aspire to reach the full potential of their uniqueness. Today the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are saying those who aspire are evil and must be punished because they oppress and take from others. This is fundamentally wrong as history proves time after time that it is those who aspire and reach beyond the limits proclaimed by any group that pull entire societies to new and higher levels in all aspects economically and socially.
The collectivist philosophy is Anti American. The United States was founded on the philosophy of Individualism. This is not a hateful or divisive statement; this is a statement of fact. If we are to have an honest and rational discussion, we must remove emotion as much as possible from the discussion. As an individualist, I do not agree with collectivists, but the core of my belief system is that I will defend their right to their beliefs, for when I do not, I am no longer an individualist but am becoming a collectivist. As opposed to the core belief of the collectivist that they who disagree and do not believe in conformity and equality must be banished or eliminated, I champion your right to not only hold this belief but to openly express this opinion. The individualist understands that it is differences that strengthen and keep societies balanced. It is not my attempt nor is it my desire to be hateful or divisive.
What I have learned is that it is critical that I as an individualist study and learn what you, a collectivst believe and as much as possible, why you believe it. I also must understand, beyond the bumper sticker and put down phrases, why I believe what I believe. History has proven that in all situations, those societies that adhered to individualist beliefs lived in societies with greater freedom and liberty as well as having a much higher standard of living for all people within that society.
As an individualist, or an American, I must learn what it means to be an individualist and I must learn what and why collectivists believe what they believe. I must then start to discuss these differences with family, friends, and acquaintances. I must never argue or debate, only discuss because it is not my goal to convert them, but to plant brushfires of freedom in their minds so they can, through their own reasoning process, come to understand the evil and dis-trustfulness of the collectivist belief system. I have learned the best way to set brushfires of freedom is by asking questions to try to have the collectivist ponder and reflect. If and when the collectivist starts to ask questions, it is then and only then that you know a brushfire of freedom has been set. We must remember this collectivist ideology permeates our educational system, and our media and is in many churches and other organizations.
Learn, discuss, and concentrate on planting seeds and not winning arguments. You will be demonized, but always refrain from being hateful and divisive. Stating the truth is not being hateful or divisive.
