The hyperbole of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) becomes more and more extreme. The candidates vying for the nomination seem to have adopted the approach that they must make the most outlandish claims to make the news. There is reason to believe their assessment is correct. Facts and rationale have no relevance, but outlandish claims do. This has become the hallmark of the party and has become the mantra for pundits and other attention seekers.
We have gone through a phase, hopefully it was a phase, that those who can call the right and mostly President Trump a Nazi seem to have some special place in the party and deserve first place in the news cycle. Many of these uninformed news seekers and their followers would mistakenly compare their comparisons to knowledgeable comparisons of Obama to the Marxist agenda and the Islamic Jihadist movement.
These comparisons are false comparisons. Obama was taught the Marxist philosophy from his early years, most notably by his grandfather and Marshall Frank Davis during his grade school and high school days. During Obama’s supposed college days and subsequent days, Obama associated with fellow Marxist believers including Valerie Jarret and Bill Ayers. Obama was also introduced to the Muslim ways as a child. His closest advisor and mentor, Valerie Jarret was also immersed in the Muslim ideology. During the Obama regime, they supported the Muslim Brotherhood and aided Islamic terrorist supporters including enabling Iran to move forward with their nuclear weapons program and their efforts to support Islamic terrorism in the Middle East and around the world.
The claims that Trump and those on the right are Nazi’s are factually false. In fact, the Nazi’s and Hitler supported the same policies supported by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party. Both the Marxist/Progressives and the Nazi’s support the supremacy of the state. They both support central control or government control of the economy and society. They both support a regulated production system with the state regulating production, wages, and labor. They both are without waiver anti-Semitic and advocate for the destruction of the individual Jewish person as well as a homeland for the Jewish people. They both favor control of life and liberty of the individual by the state. They both advocate for the elimination of religion and any reference to Holy God or Jesus Christ from any form of communication. They both favor indoctrination of youth. They both are experts in the use of propaganda and demand political correctness. The Nazi party was a socialist party and promoted socialism. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are a socialist party and promote socialism.
Yes, the Nazi party and Hitler were a danger to civilized society as is the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are factually incorrect when they compare those on the right including President Trump of being Hitler or a Nazi since those on the right and President Trump openly oppose all that the Nazi’s and Hitler were. Facts unquestionably place the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party in line not only with the Nazi Party but with all collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats, Nazi’s – all virtually the same.
Yes, there are very meaningful happenings going on in the world. Unfortunate most Americans will have no idea. Yes, these happenings will have an affect on the United States. However, rather than hearing news, we must suffer through the meaningless threats from Hollywood elites against Georgia because Georgia no longer wants to participate in the murder of unborn children. In a compassionate world, this would seem like a good thing and all people who claim to wish to protect life would support the efforts of Georgia.
We also must be inundated with horrific and vitriolic claims about our President, comparing him to the worst monsters of the world. Of course, those making the claims and supporting the claims have no idea that the monster to whom they are comparing the President, was in fact a cousin at least and more like a sibling to them in their political and social beliefs.
The American public is unaware to a large degree of the unsettled situation in Europe brought about because of the Globalist or collectivist movement within the European Union that has insisted upon an open borders policy akin to the open borders policy advocated by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party in the United States. The open border policy has socially and financially devastated many of the nations in Europe just as it is in the United States. The open border policy is allowing into these countries and the United States criminals, terrorists, people not willing to assimilate, and those who wish to milk the society and not contribute. NO nation can survive such an onslaught.
Over the last many years there has been a movement in the different EU countries to stop this deliberate attack on their countries. We have seen a meaningful backlash against the collectivist forces that control the European Union in virtually all EU members must most prominently notable in Poland, Hungary, Austria, Italy, the Balkan nations, and more and more in the Northern European Nations, The UK voted to leave the EU primarily because of the immigration issues as well as the forced surrender of sovereignty to the European Union.
These groups, who are referred to as radical right-wing groups by the collectivist press, but who are actually realistic people trying to preserve a peaceful and law abiding society that does promote the murder of babies, murder and punishment of women who wish to live as free people and not slaves, and murder, rape, and punishment of all who do not conform to the cruel and archaic beliefs of the Quran and dictates of the prophet who was and professed pedophilia, who was and practiced robbery, and who was and practiced murder. These people are holding a conference in Europe. There purpose is to join together in their sensible belief that adhering to an immigration policy that encourages these who have vowed to kill and destroy is not a wise immigration policy. They wisely refused to allow members of the collectivist media to be at the conference.
The press in the United States is either completely ignoring this very important gathering or they are not aware of it happening. Our press is fixated on the meaningless statements from so called celebrities and elites. They are more interested in promoting fact less claims of collusion and obstruction. They are more interested in promoting the investigation of an individual in hopes of finding a crime as opposed to the rule of law way where a crime is investigated to learn who committed the crime.
What is happening in Europe is important to the world. The backlash against the collectivist movement known as the European Union is important. If the sensible people prevail, it will have a definite impact on events in the United States. The world is facing two grave dangers. Both of these dangers have as their goal to force their way of life on all people bringing about total conformity of how people live their lives and how people think. This is tyranny. These two tyrannical movements are the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) and the Islamic movement. Both movements hate and wish to destroy the rights of the individual to be master of their own lives and thoughts or what is know as individualism; the ideal upon which the United States was founded.
I will pursue learning more about this critical movement in Europe and keep you informed.
The American Revolution was a unique time in the history of the world. A group of people determined that they would establish a nation where the people were to be the sovereign. The founders determined they would build a nation based on Natural Rights where government had no role except to protect the sacred Natural rights such as live, liberty, property, pursuit of happiness, speech, religion and so many more. This had not been done before, even in England.
The founders understood that what they were attempting was an experiment. They also understood that the success of this experiment depended primarily on the integrity and virtue of the people themselves. The founders understood that this was an individualist system, where all are encouraged to reach their greatest potential based on their honest efforts, and not a collectivist system, where all depended on the rules, laws, and redistributed benefits controlled by and granted by government. The founders, through the study of history and their own experiences, understood that a nation whose government controlled the lives and thoughts of the people, was a tyrannical government.
I would strongly encourage every American to begin their quest to understand what is happening in our country today, a movement that says the best society is a society where the government controls the lives and thoughts of the people, why it always has and always will end in tyranny. Please do not depend on bumper stickers to form your opinion, do not listen to pundits who in so many instances know less than you do, but start to study what these brilliant founders said and did, and why they did it.
The founders were not only brilliant at understanding how to establish a government that would serve an individualist nation, but they understood what would happen when people determined their methods were incorrect and collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, and today's Democrats – all virtually the same) began to implement their collectivist ideals.
The Warnings of Thomas Jefferson
During his two terms as President, Jefferson detected some evil and subversive trends which were luring the American people away from the original Constitution. Notice how direct he was in pointing the finger of accusation at the judiciary for corrupting the original constitutional plan: "Our government is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit, by consolidation first, and then corruption.... The engine of consolidation will be the federal judiciary; the two other branches the corrupting and corrupted instruments." In other words, the Supreme Court uses its judicial mandates to draw more and more power to Washington; then the Congress and the Executive use this new power to shatter the Constitution and corrupt the dual federalism which was designed to balance the political powers between the government and the states. Once Jefferson's distant cousin, John Marshall, became chief justice of the Supreme Court, Marshall set himself and his associates up as the "final arbiter" on all constitutional issues. Nowhere in the Constitution was the federal judiciary given the power to enforce its will on the states or the other two federal departments. Jefferson had the Supreme Court in his gun sights when he wrote: "The great object of my fear is the federal judiciary. That body, like gravity, ever acting with noiseless foot and unalarming advance, gaining ground step by step and holding what it gains, is engulfing insidiously the [state] governments into the jaws of that [federal government] which feeds them."
The Warnings of James Madison
Madison was known to be the philosophical soul-mate of Thomas Jefferson, but sometimes his contemporaries considered him somewhat paranoid and suffering from fears for the nation that would never happen. But the passing of time was to prove him more insightful than many of his contemporaries had thought. He said: "If Congress can employ money indefinitely, for the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every state, county, and parish, and pay them out of the public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, the establishing in like manner schools throughout the union; they may assume the provision of the poor.... Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited government established by the people of America."
The Warnings of Alex De Tocqueville
In 1830 a young judge from France arrived in America. His name was Alexis de Tocqueville. He came to study the American system. He and his friend soaked up more information about the great American experiment in ten months than most scholars absorb in a lifetime. Returning to France, Alexis de Tocqueville wrote a two-volume work entitled, Democracy in America. De Tocqueville saw the people of the United States passing through several distinct stages. First of all, he saw the strength of character and moral integrity that would make them prosperous. But as they became self-sufficient, he saw that they would be less concerned about each other and much less concerned about the principles that made them a great people. This would leave them vulnerable to the manipulation of clever politicians who would begin to promise them perpetual security if they accepted certain schemes contrived by some of their leaders. He then described what modern students have been led to identify as "democratic socialism.": "That power is absolute, minute, regular, provident, and mild. It would be like the authority of a parent, if, like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks on the contrary to keep them in perpetual childhood; it is well content that the people should rejoice, provided they think of nothing but rejoicing. "For their happiness such a government willingly labors, but it chooses to be the sole agent and the only arbiter of that happiness; it provides for their security, foresees and supplies their necessities, facilitates their pleasures, manages their principal concerns, directs their industry, regulates the descent of property, and subdivides their inheritances -- what remains, to spare them all the care of thinking and the trouble of living." "After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp, and fashioned them at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. "The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided -- men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till [the] nation is reduced to be nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd." Are not these warnings sobering? Can we not see every one of them in fulfillment today? Yet in spite of all these dire predictions, the Founders assured us there is a manifest destiny for America that would cause her to rise from the ashes.
Were they not spot on? Remember these were written two hundred years ago.
Finally, an investigation based on a crime will be investigated. What has happened over the last two years has been an investigation of an individual, President Trump, and not a crime. This is how the legal system in Marxist totalitarian systems work. When Stalin felt he needed to eliminate an individual, he investigated the individual and manufactured a crime. Facts were irrelevant. This is exactly how the so-called Russian Collusion case was handled.
Now that the stories have been revealed to be the fiction they are, the Marxist/Progressives continue to insist on following the precedent of their comrade, Joseph Stalin; continue to investigate the individual until you can find something, until you can find some thread that you can use to accomplish your goal of convicting the individual by manufacturing a crime.
The fundamental transformation promised by Comrade Obama was not totally completed and the Marxists had not gained enough control to assure Hillary would be elected. A political novice, Donald Trump, thwarted the completion of the fundamental transformation of the United States as promised by Comrade Obama.
What was revealed was the level to which the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party had subverted the United States Constitution and the fundamental requisite for freedom; rule of law. Truly, our security agencies including the FBI, DOJ, CIA, NSA, and others were becoming agencies of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party and not the country just as the KGB was a police force of the Communist Party and not a police force for the Soviet Union.
It is critical that this subversion, even treason, must be investigated and all accomplices must be exposed and face the appropriate consequences. There is evidence and now collaboration of that evidence that this whole scenario of subversion and yes even treason was masterminded by Comrade Obama himself. One of his chief and most loyal minions so stated:
"One point I'd like to make, Anderson, that I don't think has come up very much before, and I'm alluding now to the president's criticism of President Obama for all that he did or didn't do before he left office with respect to the Russian meddling.
"If it weren’t for President Obama, we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did, that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today, notably, Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place."
Three very key points that must be investigated and exposed are:
The transformation of many of the security agencies being transformed to KGB like organizations whose allegiance was to the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party and not the United States.
The federal government directly involved in the outcome of a presidential election.
The attempted overthrow of a duly elected president which would have destroyed the tradition of a peaceful transfer of power.
A full, fair, and thorough investigation must take place. The future of our nation and our freedom depends on it and we who love freedom must demand it.
In reading the United States Constitution, I do not see where we the people said the federal government should design a healthcare plan and provide healthcare for its citizens or illegal aliens residing within the United States borders. HEALTHCARE IS NOT A RIGHT BUT AN ENTITLEMENT. A right is granted by the Creator and an entitlement is granted by government. A right of an individual is theirs and is not contingent on taking something for somebody else so the right can be provided. An entitlement always requires that something be taken from another so the benefit can be received by another. In order for healthcare to be provided through the government, the government must take the property of another citizen and redistribute it to the recipient; thus, healthcare is an entitlement and not a right.
I also do not read in the United States Constitution where the government is to become a charity, taking from one to supply entitlements to others. The intent of the founders was just the opposite.
“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” Thomas Jefferson
“The government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments; whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” James Madison
“The government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments; whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” James Madison
President Trump has promised a redo of the unconstitutional Obamacare program, which is a good thing. President Trump has stated his program will:
Trump said that the Republican plan would be far better than Obamacare, citing impossibly high premiums and deductibles. He also argued that the Republican plan would be better than Democrat promises of “Medicare for all” which would cause Americans to lose their private health insurance.
“It will be truly great HealthCare that will work for America,” he wrote. “Also, Republicans will always support Pre-Existing Conditions.”
What should the new plan be if it is to follow the intent of the United States Constitution and be a truly great plan. The new plan should promise that the federal government will very soon have no role in the program. Healthcare will be totally returned to the private sector. The limitations of programs being limited to single states should be removed as it is in other insurance plans such as auto and life. The federal government should totally remove itself from any role in the Medicaid program. Each state should determine if it wants such a program and then administer the plan accordingly. The federal government should also start to remove itself from the Medicare program over time. If the states wish to have a Medicare style program, that would be their choice.
Ronald Reagan stated in the early 1960’s that a national health care plan for the elderly was totally unnecessary as well under 10% of the elderly had no access to healthcare. Reagan stated that any national healthcare program would be an entitlement or charity and would be determinantal to the overall healthcare in the nation. He was correct.
The federal government has two primary roles: protect the citizens from foreign enemies and maintain law and order within its borders. The federal government has no constitution right to redistribe property through taxation and entitlements or any other method nor does the federal government have a constitutional right to control the lives and thoughts of the citizen. Any time the federal government has assumed any of these roles, it has raised costs and damaged the freedom and liberty of the people. Please President Trump understand that government programs always result in waste, fraud, higher costs, and diminished services in any endeavor. Private industry is always the best solution. Your healthcare plan should reflect these facts and thus its primary goal should be to place healthcare totally in the hands of private industry.
Because somebody calls themselves a Conservative it does not mean they are. Two perfect examples of this would be John McCain and Mitt Romney. They both called themselves Conservative when they were the Republican nominees for president. Neither of them has any idea of what it means to be conservative. This is a common thread in the Republican party exhibited by the recent speakers and majority leaders of the house; Boehner, Ryan, and McCarthy.
In “Conscience of a Conservative,” Barry Goldwater stated, “Throughout history, government has proved to be the chief instrument for thwarting man’s liberty. Government represents power in the hands of some men to control and regulate the lives of other men. And power, as Lord Acton said, corrupts men. ‘Absolute power corrupts absolutely’ he said.”
Obamacare is comparable to the power grabs of the FDR and LBJ regimes. Not only did these regimes grab power but they proved that absolute power corrupts absolutely. Obama continued the power grab and continued the take over of the medical industry, an industry that the collectivists have told us in mandatory to bring about their Marxist totalitarian state, a state where the government directs and controls every facet of the lives of the individual.
The Trump DOJ, under the new leadership of Attorney General Barr stated they will not defend Obamacare in the latest ruling that would finally outlaw Obamacare, a promise made by Ryan and his other RINO’s but again not kept because they are not conservatives. We now find Senator Collins, who also is not conservative, wrote to Barr saying, "Rather than seeking to have the courts invalidate the ACA, the proper route for the administration to pursue would be to propose changes to the ACA or to once again seek its repeal. The administration should not attempt to use the courts to bypass Congress.”
Remember, when the final vote came in the Senate to repeal Obamacare? It was turncoat and chief RHINO, John McCain who rose from his deathbed to cast the vote to kill the action. Collins knows she has enough RHINO support to continue the massive healthcare takeover that Obamacare represents and ease the way for full government-controlled healthcare as demanded by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) in their quest for “absolute power.”
Freedom Loving Americans must insist on limited government, as designed by our founders, and as required for liberty, which means limited control of the lives of men by government.
MENTALITY OF A COLLECTIVIST (MARXIST, COMMUNIST, SOCIALIST, PROGRESSIVE, DEMOCRAT-ALL VIRTUALLY THE SAME)Read Now
The collectivist knows nothing is the result of their actions or their decisions. If they are poor it is because they are the target of the selfish and greedy capitalist. If they are not accepted into the school of their choice, their choice of jobs, or do not make the team, it is because of some form of discrimination or racism. If their poor or false reporting is exposed, it is because of white privilege. The only reason things are not the way they believe they should be is they are a targeted victim of society, somebody, or something.
The rule of the collectivist has been that society, capitalism, discrimination, or something is the result of the problems of people and therefore they must be given things deserved or not. The individualist has always believed that individuals make decisions and the consequences of those decisions is their responsibility, good or bad. The individualist says show me the challenge so I can use my gifts and talents to overcome the challenges. The collectivist says I should not have to face any challenges but be given from the hard work and labor of others because I deserve it. As Marx phrased it, “from each according to their abilities to each according to their needs.”
Now the infamous self-proclaimed collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has entered week two of her crybaby meltdown over disastrous poll numbers and so she’s blaming somebody else, namely Fox News and Breitbart News for her unpopularity.
Quinnipiac is one of the most unreliable left-wing pollsters out there, so when the Q-poll has bad news for America’s Socialist “It Girl,” it is worth taking notice. Quinnipiac found AOC national favor ability rating sits at a pathetic 23 percent; her unfavorable is 36 percent, which means she is upside down by double digits — 13 whole points.
But here is sweetest part of the song … only 47 percent of Democrats — Democrats, y’all — view AOC favorably. Seven percent view her unfavorably and 44 percent have no idea who she is. Among Independents, the self-proclaimed socialist is upside-down 16 points — 20 to 36 percent. AOC is even upside down with women, 27 to 30 percent.
Faced with this news, the collectivist played the victim game. After posting a link to her terrible, awful, very bad polling news, she tweeted, “It’s almost as though there is a directed + concerted far-right propaganda machine with a whole cable news channel, and a dark-money internet operation propped up by the Mercers et al dedicated to maligning me & stoking nat’l division.”
Of course, it has nothing to do with her actions because she has no responsibility for her decisions and actions. She is the victim. Marx, Lenin, Mao, Castro, Obama, Holder, Jarret, and all other collectivists are extremely proud of her reaction. Why, remember, even Hillary blamed the “far right-wing conspiracy” for Bill’s wondering eye, hands, and other body parts. Bill was the victim, not the ladies he abused, raped, and whatever else he did. Always the victim, aren’t they?
The collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats-all virtually the same) have always asserted that children are property of the state. They have advocated that the parents should have a limited role in raising their children and that in any situation where there is a disagreement the state will reign supreme. We are now seeing this more and more in the United States. We saw the state rule against the parents when they told their child she could not have a sex change operation until she was of a legal age to make the decision herself. We have seen the state rule that they will have final authority on abortion when it comes to children under age 18 since the parents to do not have to be notified. We have seen the state rule what children must be taught in our public indoctrination system even when the parents disagree. And now this.
Police knock down family's door, take their kids in overnight raid because mom didn't follow doctor's orders for child with fever
The Arizona Department of Child Safety and the Chandler Police Department in Chandler, Arizona, have fallen under scrutiny, after officers conducted an overnight SWAT-team-style raid on a family's home and took the children because an unvaccinated toddler had a fever.
When a 2-year-old little boy spiked a fever over 100 degrees late last month, his pregnant mother took him to the doctor around dinnertime. The physician — concerned over the fact that the child was unvaccinated and could have meningitis — told the mother to take the child to the emergency room.
The mother initially agreed, but changed her mind after leaving the doctor's office, because she said the boy began laughing, playing with his siblings, and his temperature dropped to where it was close to normal, the Arizona Republic reported.
Around 6:30 p.m., the mother called the doctor to explain the child was better and therefore she didn't want to take him to the emergency room. The mother also reportedly expressed fear of getting in trouble with the Department of Child Safety because the child wasn't vaccinated. The doctor assured the mother she wouldn't get in any trouble, and the mother once again agreed to take the toddler to the ER.
After waiting three hours, the hospital called the doctor to report that the little boy had not shown up and his mother was not answering her phone. The doctor called DCS, and DCS called the police.
At roughly 10:30 p.m., officers showed up at the family's home and knocked on the door several times, but the parents refused to open the door. The father told the police his son's "fever broke, and he was fine," according to police records.
The DCS then told police they were seeking a "temporary custody notice" from a judge in order to take the sick toddler for emergency medical aid, which was granted around midnight.
According to the police report, "Based upon the court order, the intent of DCS to serve the order, and exigency to ensure the health and welfare of the child, the decision was made to force entry to the home if the parents refused to respond to verbal requests."
So, after 1:00 a.m., after consulting with SWAT and the police criminal investigations bureau, the officers knocked down the family's door, with guns drawn. Surveillance footage released by the father shows the officers' use of force, which the family's attorney said should only be "reserved for violent criminals.’
Police admitted there was no "criminal incident," according to the Republic. Yet, DCS also obtained temporary custody orders for the sick toddler's two siblings, and the three kids were removed from the home and placed in the care of separate foster families, where they remain. DCS is conducting a review of the kids' grandparents to see if they can be entrusted to care for the children.
Neither parent was arrested, but they are being forced to undergo psychological evaluations and complete a "family reunification plan" before officials consider returning their children to them.
Not one Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) had the courage to vote for the “Green New Deal” resolution despite singing its praises in the past. Either the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) proponents were playing politics when they argued for this socialist program, or they were playing politics when they refused to vote for the resolution.
Ed Markey was the sponsor of the bill. This is what he had said in the past about why he introduced the bill and why he believed it was critical.
Markey said “wealth inequality” as a reason the Green New Deal is needed:
Global temperatures are the highest in recorded history. Wealth inequality is at its highest point since the era of the Great Depression. The interrelationship of these ills and injustices is undeniable. But the challenge is not insurmountable. We can deliver a #GreenNewDeal.
We need massive renewable energy deployment. Wind, solar, offshore wind, storage batteries. Our energy future will not be found in the dark of a mine, but in the light of the sun. We have acted on this scale before, and we must do it again. #GreenNewDeal.
The sun is setting on the dirty energy of the past. Today marks the dawn of a new era of climate action. When we look back on today, this will be the moment we will be able to say that the political tide has turned on the rising seas. #GreenNewDeal.
We are reclaiming our leadership of the most important issue facing humankind. This is the new climate democracy – of the people, by the people, for the planet. #GreenNewDeal.
Speaking at a campaign stop in Mason City, Iowa, Booker said, “We have to deal with this. Our planet is in peril, and we need to be bold. It’s one of the reasons I signed on to the resolution.” “I co-sponsored the resolution for the Green New Deal. There’s a lot of people blowing back on the Green New Deal,” Booker said. “They’re going, ‘Oh, it’s impractical, oh it’s too expensive, oh it’s all of this.’ If we used to govern our dreams that way, we would have never gone to the moon.”
This is a post of Bernie Sanders:
Add your name to support the Green New Deal
The U.S. is the most powerful economy on earth, and we must lead the world in the fight against climate change. We can do that by passing the Green New Deal to save the planet and create millions of new jobs.
Add your name to say you support the Green New Deal to transform our energy system away from fossil fuels toward sustainable energy.
And the list continues, yet not one vote in favor of the resolution. Apparently, politics trumped the inevitable end of the world in 12 years or that claim is also a hoax. Seems like the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are having their hoaxes come back to roost, if I good take the liberty to paraphrase the friend and religious leader of Comrade Obama, Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
I saw this on Red State and initially thought it was another proposal from the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party. This is not so farfetched, especially since they want to have open borders with full rights to all illegal aliens including the right to vote, along with their desire to allow any child they do not abort or murder to be allowed to vote as well.
French Writer Calls for Other Countries to Have the Right to Vote in US Elections
One election after the next, we have seen how much the results of the US presidential vote impact not just the 50 states, but the rest of the planet too. And if the future of foreign countries is shaped to a significant extent by what goes on, on US Election Day, shouldn’t they get a say in who gets to lead the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years? In other words: shouldn’t foreign countries have a right to vote in the US presidential election?
Perhaps it helps to imagine America as the pot in which tomorrow’s ideas are brewed, for better or worse. Perhaps it helps, too, to look at the more tangible signs of how US politics contribute to shaping all of our lives. The most convincing example may be global warming, and Donald Trump’s overt skepticism when it comes to climate change. In January this year, the president of the world’s most powerful nation infamously tweeted: “In the beautiful Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded. In coming days, expected to get even colder. People can’t last outside even for minutes. What the hell is going on with Global Warming? Please come back fast, we need you!” It goes without saying that whatever the US does or does not do to limit the effects of global warming impacts every single being, human or otherwise, on this planet.
Except things are more complicated, and more nuanced than that. Take, for example, the idea that living in a country is a condition to having the right to vote there. Permanent residents such as myself, also known as green card holders (also known as people who aren’t US citizens but live and work in the US full-time) pay the same income tax as US citizens, but don’t get to vote. Naturally, US citizens (like citizens of many other countries) still get to vote for their president even if they permanently move to a different country. All this to say: there is an established disequilibrium between who gets to vote in the US presidential election and who arguably has the most skin in the game.
I have clearly disclosed my status as a French citizen, so I know the question will be raised: how would I react if someone proposed to let other countries vote in the French presidential election? Well, France is currently about five spots behind the US in the ranking of the world’s most powerful nations, and its GDP is more than seven times lower. But sure, should France ever have the kind of political and cultural influence the US currently yields, then I’d be inclined to let others have a say. In fact, I might even vote in favor of it.
