There was a day when a Democrat openly stated and was applauded when he stated, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” This statement is roundly rebuked by those who would refer to themselves as Democrats today. Not only is this statement roundly rebuked but another similar statement such as, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for yourself,” is also roundly denounced.
The mantra of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party goes to the very heart of the evil that is collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) and that is to not just ask what my country can give me but I demand my country fulfill all my needs and wants. The strength of America is that our government was to be a limited government with two primary functions: to protect the natural rights given to each individual by our Creator and to protect the citizens from both foreign and domestic enemies. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party today says that the role of government must be the dominating, dictatorial force with power over the individual’s life and thoughts. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party claims it is the role of government to dictate who lives and who does not, what liberty each has and how much of that liberty they have, and what the desires and ambitions of the individual should be and the limits government should place on those desires and limits.
The direction the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party would have us take would be to fully embrace “The Road to Tyranny.” If you have not read my book, I strongly urge you to get it and read it. The strategies and policies being proposed today by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are the exact strategies needed to reach their desired goal of fundamentally transforming the United States into a Marxist tyrannical nation.
Shortly I will be releasing “Two Visions of America.” We are hearing one of the visions being enunciated by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats), Learn what the visions are, how the vision upon which our country was founded and flourished came about and what it is. Learn what the inevitable results of both visions are. Yes, we already know the results.
If we who love freedom and independence wish to live in a county that advances life, liberty, and property or the pursuit of happiness, then we must totally understand the strategies and beliefs of those who despise what we cherish. Our founders made their choice because they understood the strategies and beliefs of those who despised what they cherished. Let us not lose what we cherish because we will not take the time and make the effort to equip ourselves to be as Sam Adams said, “a tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”
Karl Marx said the essence of fairness and equality is his classless society, the same social and economic policies the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party candidates said we should put into full affect because they will bring fairness and prosperity to the United States as we heard last night in the “I can spend more than you can” irresponsible so called debate last night, is “from each according to his abilities to each according to his needs.” Take from the producer and give to the taker has always been a formula that brings financial and social collapse to any society that employs this ridiculous concept.
Those who advocate for this “socially just” and “fair” idea, can not give even one example of where this concept has produced an economically and socially strong society. Having not one example that substantiates their claims, these collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) resort to the concept that those who practiced this failed ideal in the past did not do it the right way. We are told now that if we call this movement Democratic Socialism it will bring about a fair and just classless society that will prosper. The same formula failed when it was called Menshevik Socialism, Bolshevik Socialism, National Socialism, or any other modifier placed before the failed formula of Socialism.
It cannot succeed for two reasons: the first is it promotes destruction that is contrary to human nature, and two, the arithmetic brings about negative numbers that prohibit growth, innovation, entrepreneurship, and prosperity. Marx, for all his faults, understood the math and embraced the math stating that economic growth should never exceed the growth of the population because the excess would lead to innovation, growth, and prosperity which once again brings about an unfair, an unjust, and an unequal society.
An example of how this concentration on so called fairness and equality is in the short run and long run detrimental and destructive to the financial and social well being is the claim by the Women’s National Soccer Team that they should be paid the same as the men. The Women have been more successful from a competitive standpoint than the men given the success of the Women in the World Cup competition. Nevertheless, the women are advocating that the failed formula of Marx should apply; “from each according to their ability to each according to their need.” Both Marx and the advocates for this socialist formula forget that 1 + 1 = 2 no matter what modifier we place in front of the formula.
This is what the numbers reveal for the Soccer association:
"From 2009 through 2019—a timeframe that includes two Women's World Cup championships—the Women's National Team has earned gross revenue of $101.3 million over 238 games, for an average of $425,446 per game and the Men's National Team has earned gross revenue of $185.7 million over 191 games, for an average of $972,147 per game. More specifically, WNT games have generated a net profit (ticket revenues minus event expenses) in only two years (2016 and 2017). Across the entire 11-year period, WNT games generated a net loss of $27.5 million."
What the Marx’s advocates are saying is that they deserve more even though by paying them more the loss would be even larger. This is what the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party, and many in the Republican establishment like Ryan and McCarthy, have been claiming, the larger the deficit the more “socially just” and “fair” is society.
The problem with this is that history shows this to be a failed formula. What this formula produces is more and more poverty, a lower and lower living standard for all but the politically elite, more and more crime, and less and less hope. The formula is designed to destroy and not to build. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) argument, as we heard last night, is to destroy and not to build. Marx said the current society must be completely destroyed so this never to be achieved classless society that is “socially just’” “totally conforming,” and “totally equal” can be built.
Collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) have never been convicted of their lack of truth telling throughout history.
Some of the more famous lies we have heard from collectivists:
The classless society will be a society that will live in unity and harmony.
We are for the people.
Taking from some to give to others will bring prosperity.
Food stamps have a multiplier effect.
You can keep your doctor if you like your doctor, you can keep your plan if you like your plan.
Anybody who would disagree with our policies is a racist and a demagogue.
These lies were and continue to be told to bring about a desired result and are a part of a bigger plan to bring about the desired result of all people, other than the political elites, living in total subservience, in a conforming and equal state, to the sovereign government.
This is what collectivists were told to do bring about this subservient society.
“It is not truth that matters, but victory.”
“The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.”
“I use emotion for the many and reserve reason for the few.”
“But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.”
“If you wish the sympathy of the broad masses, you must tell them the crudest and most stupid things.”
“No amount of genius spent on the creation of propaganda will lead to success if a fundamental principle is not forever kept in mind. Propaganda must confine itself to very few points and repeat them endlessly. Here, as with so many things in this world, persistence is the first and foremost condition of success.”
“Only constant repetition will finally succeed in imprinting an idea on the memory of the crowd.”
“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
“The great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.”
“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”
“Great liars are also great magicians.”
These are principles that have been employed by collectivists for decades, perhaps centuries, and they are being employed by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party of today, specifically against President Trump. All these quotes on how to have an effective propaganda campaign are quotes from one of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) fellow collectivists, Adolf Hitler.
The United States fought a civil war over 150 years ago. That civil war had at the heart of it, slavery. The civil war we are in today also has at the heart of it, slavery. The first civil war we fought was about the right of one individual to be owned or enslaved by another. The current civil war is about the right of an individual to live their own lives and have their own thoughts as opposed to the government determining how everyone is to live their lives and what their thoughts are to be.
The United States was founded on the principle of individualism. Individualism is a philosophy that adheres to the basics of the Declaration of Independence that stated we each have a natural right to life, liberty, and property, or as Jefferson said the pursuit of happiness. These rights are endowed to us by the Creator; thus, the Creator is sovereign. Under the philosophy of individualism, the role of government must be limited with the primary role of protector; protector of those natural rights so they are not infringed by government or others and protector of the population from enemies of the nation, both foreign and domestic.
The opposing force in this civil war is the philosophy of Collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrats- all virtually the same). This force believes that government is the supreme sovereign. As supreme sovereign it becomes the role of government to run the lives of the people and dictate what their thoughts are to be. This philosophy has always held that individualism is a selfish and greedy idea where people strive to exceed the limits the collectivist believes should be heeded. The collectivist believes that the role of government is to insure total conformity and total equality within the society. The collectivist has maintained a destructive mantra believing that all aspects of individualism must be destroyed including the critical unit of strong families where children’s belief systems reflect the beliefs of the parents and churches and not the schools.
It is these two forces that are clashing in the United States today. President Trump is at the very heart of this war. President Trump became the nominee of the individualist faction with assistance from the collectivist press. They were sure he would lose to their very weak candidate, Hillary Clinton. Something happened on the way to the Forum and the worst possible event happened to the collectivist movement; Donald Trump became president.
Donald Trump is not a politician and had not been schooled in the ways of what we individualists call the Washington Swamp where people adhere to the traditions that have become the swamp of speaking in politically correct terms and not revealing the corruption and collusion within the swamp. The collectivist movement is becoming unhinged as more and more their corruption and collusion is being revealed by this outsider. As collectivists always, do, they will do anything to protect what they believe to be their territory and their gains.
One of the main gains the collectivist has made is to bring about a huge welfare state that is at the heart of the evils of collectivism. Welfare states are designed to destroy the family unit, allow children to be indoctrinated in the ways of collectivism in the schools. It brings about poverty which enslaves people to the government, it brings about conformity and equality of the people while allowing the government elite to become extremely wealthy, it destroys innovation and entrepreneurship of private individuals, and it equates natural rights and entitlements to be the same. This brings about the goal of the collectivist which is to collapse society by destroying the moral fabric and the financial stability of the society that was created by the individualist movement.
President Trump has exposed all that is taking place when he revealed the results of the collectivist movement in Baltimore and San Francisco., while exposing the hypocrisy and failures of Elijah Cummings and Nancy Pelosi. This is the same result we see in Seattle, Los Angeles, Detroit, New York, Chicago, and all cities and areas that have been under collectivist government. It is the only end that can occur.
The collectivist defense is the only defense they can muster; Trump is a racist. In the language of the swamp, anybody who reveals the true results of the collectivist movement is a racist. How else do you defend your actions when your intent is to bring about the destruction of the society. Of course, you promise that what you will rebuild will be utopia, but you have nothing other than theory to support your claim. Collectivism has always failed. It does not matter what adjective you use to modify it. It must fail because it is in opposition to the nature our Creator placed in us as individuals.
Regardless of your skin color, your sex, your religion, or your ethnicity, if you believe in the basis upon which our nation was founded, individualism, and oppose that philosophy that is advancing the civil war we are now facing, collectivism, you are a racist according to the language of the swamp. President Trump understands this, but President Trump also understands that it is critical for the future of the United States as a free and independent people, we must stand against the EVIL and DESTRUCTIVE forces of collectivism.
Oh yes, Jerry Nadler, Adam, Schiff, and Elijah Cummings will continue to think they are relevant while wasting precious resources including time. What these three have accomplished in a mere 18 months is to render what was intended to be the most influential branch of government, yes even more so than the Senate, the president, and the courts, is now the laughingstock of the American people. All except the most ardent haters of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights, pay absolutely no attention to anything these three haters and highly partisan member of the swamp do or say. Cummings especially continues his hypocritical tirades while his wife continues to thumb her nose at the laws of our land.
While these three, along with the squad continue with their damaging hatred of all that is freedom and liberty, the country continues to face three major problems that continue to threaten what was intended to be the King, Emperor, or Czar of the United States; that is Rule of Law.
Congress continues to ignore the threat to our nation on our southern border. Yes, it is a threat to our sovereignty. Open borders have proven to be the Achilles heel for nations who are members of the European Union. The requirement of the EU to allow any and all to come and go are bringing financial ruin and social chaos to many nations in Europe including Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, France, Germany, and more. Those EU nations who recognize this crisis such as Poland, Hungary, Italy, and others are being demonized by the collectivist forces in the EU. It is evident that this same crisis faces the United States and yet the collectivist forces within our country do not only ignore it but encourage it. They openly call for open borders encouraging criminals and terrorists of all sorts to come and fulfil the goals of the collectivist; that is to fundamentally transform, per Comrade Obama, the United States into a Marxist totalitarian state. Marx said for this to happen the current social order must be destroyed so the new collectivist social order could be built. The sad thing is, only congress can fix this threat to our freedom and liberty.
Congress continues to ignore the threat to our nation of an out of control spending problem. Nadler, Schiff, Cummings, and the rest, including the Republican establishment continue to kick this can down the road. The collectivist solution, one that has always failed, is to continue to take assets from the innovator and builder and transfer it to the taker. This solution always brings about collapse, because economically it can only end in financial collapse. When financial collapse occurs, social collapse follows. The sad thing is, only congress can fix this treat to our freedom and liberty.
A crisis that is not addressed very often but is perhaps the biggest threat to our freedom and liberty is the abusive power grab of the judicial branch. The intent of the founders was that the judicial branch of government would be the weakest branch of the three, and yet we were warned by many of the founders that the biggest threat for abuse of power and the breakdown of the rule of law, was the judicial branch. The only power the constitution gives to the judicial branch is to render an opinion. The judicial branch was given no legislative power and they were given no administrative power. They are obligated to give opinions based on the laws as written, always adhering to the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. Today we have federal district judges rendering rulings or opinions that are in direct opposition to the Constitution and the laws. These judges are rendering their opinions based on their political viewpoints and what they call intent as opposed to adherence to law. It is our judicial system that is destroying our King, Emperor, or Czar; that is Rule of Law. The sad thing is, only congress can fix this threat to our freedom and liberty.
Yes, I did watch the Mueller hearings. No, I did not learn anything new. Yes, much was confirmed.
Before I sat down to watch the hearings I confirmed with myself that if the crimes that were alleged were committed, it would be a serious infringement on the United States Constitution and our accepted and legal practices of electing our executive and having a peaceful transfer of power. Being convinced that our nation must protect both the legalities and traditions of our system of elections and transfer.
What I know is that I learned nothing new. I also know that our legal requirements and traditions are under serious attack. What we have witnessed is an unprecedented attempt to pervert our legal system and our traditions by a group of people who are trying to change the results of an election and trying to substantiate their efforts to overthrow that election.
If you watched the hearings, read the report, have followed the Mueller investigation, and have followed the happenings surrounding the 2016 election, if you have concerns about our system of elections and not the result of this particular election, and if you are willing to put aside partisan politics, you can only arrive at what was confirmed to me.
What we know is that the Russians once again were involved in our election as they have been in every presidential election since 1920 including the 1942 election where Stalin told the United States Communist Party to not run a candidate but to support the election of Franklin Roosevelt.
What we know is that many different agencies including the DOJ and FBI had been infiltrated with politicos more interested in determining outcomes than in performing their stated duties.
What we know is that Robert Mueller did not write the report attributed to him and it is very questionable as to how much input he had.
What we know is that Robert Mueller is and was a political hack and had a desire to confirm guilt on the charge that Trump colluded with the Russians. Even with his prejudice and the prejudice of his staff, they could find no evidence of collusion or obstruction.
What we know is that it is time to move on from this investigation that has time after time been only a wish with no evidence.
What we know will happen, because it is already happening, is that people who did not watch the hearings, who did not read the report, who have done no substantial non-partisan research, will make prejudicial bumper sticker statements doing nothing but proving their prejudices and confirming they, along with Mueller and all the other political hacks involved in these dangerous occurrences, are the real danger to our freedom and liberties.
We cheer when a clever person makes a more insulting statement about a Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) than that made by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat). The bumper sticker slogans and insults dominate the news and dominate social media. Meanwhile our country becomes more and more divided and we continue down “The Road to Tyranny.”
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
