America, You Asked For It!

Political News and Commentary from the Right

Welcome to Socialism America

So say the Russians in their flagship newspaper, Pravda.

American capitalism gone with a whimper

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.

Then came Barack Obama’s command that GM’s (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of “pure” free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a “bold” move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK’s Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our “wise” Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.

Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but a “freeman” whimper.

So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set “fair” maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Franks, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.

The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

Tax Day Tea Party in Little Rock, AR

#tcot

I’ve finally found a bright side to the new administration. As bad as it’s been to watch as the new Liberal regime dismantles so much of what made America great, as the budget deficit balloons at a record pace with new spending and bailouts, as our government seizes control of private industry, as our children and grandchildren are saddled with debt that their offspring won’t even be able to repay, one good thing is happening as a result of the November elections. Conservatives are finally standing up and organizing!

My wife and I arrived at the Tax Day Tea Party in Little Rock, AR around 4:30 pm CST for our first ever protest. We found an enthusiastic crowd of young, old, and middle-aged colleagues who are sick and tired of the direction our country is headed. Signs and slogans identified their concerns, their motivation for participating (many like us, for the first time) in an organized protest against the US government.

As one would expect, slogans damning Obama’s policies on taxes and spending dominated, but references were also condemning the country’s charge toward a Socialist economic model and even abortion. Not so long ago, conservatives were never seen carrying signs or heard chanting slogans, or even gathering to get our message out. So thank you Mr. President, Ms. Pelosi, and Mr. Reed for motivating us to join forces, organize, and even march to make our voices heard.

A number of signs proudly identified their bearers as “right-wing extremists.” Contrary to what the Obama administration would have you believe, these protesters weren’t foaming at the mouth, shooting into the air, maiming children and the elderly, or murdering innocents. In fact, I interviewed a Capitol police officer who admitted the protest was completely peaceful–not even a hint of violence or disorderly conduct. He did say one participant was asked to leave because the slogan on the sign he carried was “vulgar,” but he left without trouble or incident.

So much for the portrait the left tries to paint of anyone who leans to the right, that of a ravenous beast who mutilates the helpless and innocent.

I was also surprised there was no counter-protest. Evidently, the left thinks we’ll slink off into the shadows if we’re ignored.

The crowd in Little Rock didn’t seem ready to sit on their haunches though. Participants roared as speakers called on them to not let this be the culmination or their efforts. Hundreds signed on and pledged to organize voter registration efforts, to blog, to YouTube, to Twitter, to take the fight to the Left’s home turf, to fight using the tactics of ACORN, Moveon.org, and other left-wing activist organizations.

Thank you Mr. President, you have awakened a sleeping tiger!

Capitalism wins…barely

#tcot

This Rasmussen poll illustrates just how far we’ve shifted toward giving up the ideals that allowed the US to become the world’s strongest and most powerful nation in a little less than 200 years.

Only 53% of Americans prefer a capitalist economic system to socialism, while 20% desire the change to the latter.  Perhaps even more disturbing is the 27% who aren’t sure.  How can you not be sure?  Do these 20% not understand the difference between the two?  Has our educational system failed so miserably that nearly a third of all Americans don’t have a clue what differences exist in our country and that of Cuba?

Thank God a majority, albeit a small one, still believes that hard work, productivity, and responsibility should be rewarded in our society.  The 20% who actually prefer socialism doesn’t surprise me, or worry me, but the fact that 27% are sitting on the fence leads me to believe the massive, prolonged assaults by the media, education, and entertainment industries are making real inroads that threaten to completely erode the values and principles upon which this great country was built.

On its face, socialism sounds like a grand idea…but so did Sir Thomas More’s Utopia.  “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”  Share and share alike, everyone has plenty and all enjoy a comfortable standard of living.  The problem–this idealistic dream is as achievable as the aforementioned dreamworld in More’s book.

The most glaring examples of its failures are the former Soviet Union and its satellites.  Many point to the socialist governments in western Europe as examples of success, but fail to point out their success has largely been due to the security provided by the US.  While they transitioned, we blocked the path of Soviet expansion into their territories.  We saved their butts twice in the last century and have maintained a military presence there ever since to prevent having to do it again.

The real weakness of Socialism, which also happens to be the greatest strength of Capitalism, is human nature.  If a man is twice as productive as his neighbor, but receives the same compensation, rarely (if ever) does the latter become more productive.  The former eventually realizes that he can be less productive and enjoy the same fruits.  So productivity is stifled, rather than encouraged.  On the other hand, when a more productive worker is rewarded, this not only maintains or improves that productivity, but in most cases encourages the less productive to strive to improve so that he can enjoy a higher standard of living.

The Soviet Union sought to overcome this weakness by forcing citizens into labor camps where they were starved, tormented, and murdered to boost productivity.  If you don’t believe this, you haven’t read Solzhenitsyn.  Only the naive believe the same can’t happen here.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Those who would sacrifice liberty in the name of safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”  Giving government control of private property (banks and corporations) and/or our health care system is precisely sacrificing liberty in the name of safety!  Those who want the government to take over our financial institutions should look at the stock prices of FNM and FRE since the government stepped in on their behalf.  Our government–Democrats and Republicans–encouraged, even coerced these private corporations to make bad loans, loans they knew would go bad, then seized them and blamed the free-market system when they capsized, after they refused to listen to warnings of their questionable lending practices.

The simple fact is that government can’t run companies efficiently, it can’t even run its own programs efficiently.  If you don’t believe that, you haven’t seen the National Debt Clock, which shows we’re each (every single American citizen) on the hook for over $36,000+ of government debt.

There was a time in this country when Americans took pride in making it on their own.  Now it appears only 53% of Americans fall into that category.  The others want to be taken care of, or at least be taken care of if they fail to make it as well as everyone else.  If this trend worsens, we may well slip into the abyss from which there is no return. 

The spirit that made America great is dying, supplanted by that which made Europe fall from greatness. It’s time to revive America.
