Ariel Castro: Another example of the damage leftist ideology does to peoples lives

liberal_logic_abortion_is_a_choice_buttonAriel Castro: Another example of the damage liberal / progressive ideology does to peoples lives. One simple statement he made at his sentencing proves this. That statement was that he had a “sexual addiction“. For years now the liberal progressive movemment in America has been making excuses for peoples bad immoral behavior.

They’ve had the psycho’s i.e. psychologists and psychiatrists help them enhance and validate their excuses thus justifying their bad, evil and immoral behavior in their own eyes and in the eyes of those who are also immoral.

Therefore they have made a culture where nothing is out of bounds, nothing is wrong, nothing is evil, there are no standards except those standards the left chooses to apply to whatever situation they encounter to further their leftist agenda, or to cover up the truth as to the results, or effects of that agenda.

You see this in the situation with Castro, you see this in the violence and depravity in our cities and schools. You see this in places like Stockton, California and Detroit, Michigan, you see this in a rich kid in Texas getting away with killing people because of so-called Afluenza, saying he never learned good morals because he was a rich privileged white kid.

The wrong headedness of modern liberal / progressive thought and policies are plain for everyone to see. Whether it be the malfeasance, and abuse by our government agencies, Benghazi, IRS, NSA, DOJ, just to name a few or the green energy debacles under Obama.

You see it in the way they try to silence their critics and / or opposition. You see this in the hypocrisy that exists in pop culture, Hollywood, Washington D.C. etc.

You can see it in the trial and reprehensible behavior of Kermit Gosnell. You can see it in the lives of Anthony Weiner and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner and their complete lack of remorse or even a basic human understanding of the depravity of their own behavior.

You can see it in the behavior of some mothers who think it nothing wrong to dispose of their own child because the child interferes with their lives.

You see in the selective outrage of the Obama administration and the democrat party on various issues that arise in America and the world.

It’s not hard to see at all why the Founders said things like “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Leftist cultural ideas and the resulting consequences show why America should have been listening to those decrying the moral decay in America, the so-called social conservatives. I would not say they were social conservatives. I would say they are the people who have inherited the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and who have an understanding of the ideals that made this the most blessed and prosperous nation in the history of mankind.

Hopefully enough of you will wake up to these facts and the wisdom God imparted to us through them, to somehow stop the decay and decline that those same leftist ideals, practices and politicies have brought on the United States.

Not only have those leftist policies effected America, but they have restricted and reversed the advance of true human freedom throughout the world, that the greatness of this nation once inspired.

That is providing we have not already advanced too far down that dark road to tyranny, treachery and abuse. Where as I have said before the few control the many and the only thing we all have in common is the misery we suffer at the hands of those in power.

Wake up America, before it’s too late and pray, that it is not too late already.

America forget not to Praise God and Thank Jesus, God please continue to shed your grace, your blessings, and your love for all mankind upon America and help us to advance the cause of human freedom as our Founders and their offspring had envisioned.

My Response To My Liberal / Progressive Detractors

LiberalChoiceSomething I wrote a number of months ago when I was writing for Rant, in response to loony leftist bloggers who kept leaving ignorant and irrelevant comments on my articles, it still rings true and should be shared.

Are you so desperate for traffic to your own articles that you have to keep making nonsensical comments on others pieces. Comments that make you out to be, either a mental patient, or someone who is completely devoid of understanding, and honesty.

You would do well to avoid these scenarios that reveal you to be, what you truly are. Your words speak volumes about who you are as a person. Where you once again stooped to the liberals typical antics, trying to denigrate the character of those better than you, as you did with the Tea Party, and where, you also said some very profane, sexually degenerate things about the Palin’s and Tea Party people.

You liberals, truly show your lack of character on a daily basis, with your irrelevant comments, idiotic excuses, and ridiculous arguments, due to your own inability to face reality. A reality that does not fit your small minded narratives.

You who keep twisting the truth, or completely lying about your opponents, because of your own ineptness, and lack of leadership, being completely without moral compasses to give you the guidance, or the wisdom to avoid these situations that reveal you to be, who you truly are.

Your President; Barack Obama is also experiencing some of these situations with Seal Team Six, Extortion 17, Fast & Furious, AP, Benghazi, the Statist Dept., the Dept. of InJustice i.e. DoJ, the Internal Reward Service i.e. IRS, the Now Spying on Americans agency i.e. NSA, Environmental Propaganda Agency i.e. EPA, Federal Bureau of Intimidaters i.e FBI, Department of the inDefensible i.e. DoD, Bureaucratic Arm Targeting Federal Foes i.e. BATF, etc., that have shown, he has the same liberal problems you do.

Benghazi: A situation in which, he either:

1. Did not have the personal intelligence, integrity or wisdom, to face facts, to gain an understanding of the enemy, and who had no plan to deal with conditions on the ground in Libya after the overthrow of Gaddhafi. Whose administration, according to testimony at the recent House Oversight Committee hearings, for the appearance of “normalcy” did not beef up security at the consulate in Benghazi. Thereby showing an administration who callously denied repeated pleas by the Ambassador himself, and his security personnel on the ground in Libya for more boots on the ground. An administration who had been made fully aware of terrorist attacks and activity, and the presence of Al Gaeda in the area, whose flag had been seen flying over buildings in the weeks and months prior to the final attack in which the Ambassador and three other brave Americans were senselessly murdered by Islamic Muslim terrorists,

2. He is so ideologically bound that no matter what evidence exists to show him the error of his policies, he unreasonably holds to his erroneous ways, because he is blinded by his beliefs, to the realities of a world that does not fit his narrative. Or;

3. He is complicit with the terrorists, due once again to his leftist ideological beliefs about Muslims terrorism.

Lastly; as their threats do not cause any fear in the hearts of brave Americans around the world. Neither will there be any fear in people like me, due to your infantile threats of violence. You liberal leftists do not have the courage to back up your words, with physical action, but come ahead, you will only decimate your own ranks with your misguided actions.

DANIEL WEBSTER AND OUR AMERICAN FLAG

American-Flag-Cross-1Daniel Webster saw the rising glory of our national government and the adoring admiration of the people of this free country for our national banner, the bright symbol of our liberties and our progress, and in a burst of loyal enthusiasm he exclaimed, “Let it rise! let it rise, till it meet the sun in his coming; let the earliest light of the morning gild it, and the parting day linger and play upon its summit.

flag_and_eagleSo let me say of the Banner of Brotherly love, which is the symbol of so much of hopefulness and cheer to the way-worn servants of the Lord who have done so much to promote the best interests of our country: “Let it rise.” Lift it up! let it float over our beloved Church, let the wayworn missionary from the Orient see its bright folds floating continually to give him a welcome home; let the self-denying missionary on our wide-extended home land see its shining glory as he lays down the sickle in the field of ripened grain, proclaiming to him, after having borne the burden and heat of the day, that there is sweet rest for the weary provided by a sympathizing host of friends; let the widow and the fatherless lift up their eyes and rejoice that a grateful people have hearts and hands open to supply their wants in the days of their dependent widowhood and childhood; and let the friends of humanity, the participants in the merits of the Redeemer’s death, the sharers in the blessings of this Christian land, raise that bright Banner of Brotherly-love higher, and still higher, as the Church of our fathers lengthens her cords and strengthens her stakes on the ever-increasing territory of the conquests of the world for our Emmanuel and Redeemer, and let it proclaim as it waves in heavenly grandeur that our Church is not ungrateful to her faithful servants, but that she will provide for them the comforts of an earthly home as long as God keeps them in the wilderness, awaiting his own time to translate them to the better land and to their rewards in glory.

My thoughts; obviously the government has grown into a state sponsor of religion, that religion being climate change and that faith being in the liberal, marxist, facist, socialist, progressive, ideology that regresses us back to the failed policies of the past where tyranny, oppression, serfdom and slavery reigned.

The Failure of Marxism and Socialism

The Failure of Marxism: by John Dos Passos

Just a few notes from Classical Liberalism blog

When we hear about fascism, naturally many first start to think about nationalism, militarism and antisemitism of Hitler’s National Socialist Germany or perhaps similar things about Italy’s Fascist Mussolini. Once you peel the top layers back, one will see that fascism is socialism in disguise.

Keynes’ most important book, The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money, was first published in 1936 and was immediately hailed by Socialists everywhere. It is important to stress that Mrs. Joan Robinson, an internationally recognized Marxist, was one of the main economic experts who collaborated with Keynes on his project. Another leading Socialist economic expert, R. F. Kahn, contributed so much that “his share in the historic achievement cannot have fallen very far short of co-authorship.”

Mrs. Joan Robinson was highly regarded by Keynes, who in The General Theory generously praises her for her contribution to his work. It is therefore important to note carefully Mrs. Robinson’s statement that the differences between Marx and Keynes are only verbal. Writing in the Communist journal, Science and Society, winter, 1947, p. 61, Mrs. Robinson said:  “‘The time, therefore, seems ripe to bridge the verbal gulf.” The only real difference between the Marxians and the Fabians is one of degree and tactics.

As an economic system, fascism is SOCIALISM with a capitalist veneer. In its day fascism was seen as the happy medium between liberal (Free market) capitalism and revolutionary MARXISM. Fascism substituted the particularity of nationalism and racialism—“blood and soil”—for the internationalism of both classical liberalism and Marxism.

Where socialism sought totalitarian control of a society’s economic processes through direct state operation of the means of production, fascism sought that control indirectly, through domination of nominally private owners. Where socialism nationalized property explicitly, fascism did so implicitly, by requiring owners to use their property in the “national interest”—that is, as the autocratic authority conceived it. (Nevertheless, a few industries were operated by the state.) Where socialism abolished all market relations outright, fascism left the appearance of market relations while planning all economic activities. Where socialism abolished money and prices, fascism controlled the monetary system and set all prices and wages politically. In doing all this, fascism denatured the marketplace. ENTREPRENEURSHIP was abolished. State ministries, rather than consumers, determined what was produced and under what conditions. 

Source: Concise Encyclopedia of Economics-Fascism
 Here we can see that fascism gives the illusion that “private property” exists so long as it is used for the “greater good”, “national good”, “public good”, and so on.

Communism and socialism are more honest about what they claim to be: they admit that no one has a private life any longer, and that all goods, services, and human beings are the property of the state. One may argue, as I do, that this is evil, but it is also honest.

Fascism, however, is both dishonest and evil. The fascists claim that there is such a thing as private property, with all the responsibilities of ownership, and the facade of ownership — yet, the state controls the “owner’s” every decision on penalty of fine or imprisonment (or both).

In the ultimate analysis, there is no real difference between any of these systems. The divergences in specifics of ideology are debatable in academia but not to the regular individual being oppressed by the State. All hold human beings as right-less. Individuals cannot act freely provided that they respect the rights of others; they can only act with permission from the state.

John Dos Passos

John Dos Passos1896-1970

Both socialism and communism, as they actually work out, betray the hopes for the better life that they once inspired.

“Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.” – Thomas Sowell

Socialist Utopia2

Picture: Beguiled by Utopian visions, many wishful thinkers refuse to recognize the facts of socialism as it has worked out in practice. This drawing by Abner Dean, shows bewildered men and women, including two who are gagged and so can ask questions only with their eyes, watching a self-deluded, “wooly-headed” artist happily at work.

Not long ago I found myself talking to a pleasant and well-informed woman reporter in a newspaper office in a prosperous city in the Middle western corn belt. Although the region is usually chalked up as “black Republican” in politics, the paper she worked for wore a “liberal” complexion. I was trying to explain to her that socialism as I had seen it working last summer in Great Britain was not necessarily a force for progress. “But I thought you were a liberal,” she kept saying almost tearfully, “and now you have turned reactionary.” “The socialists are the conservatives now,” I told her, “and the communists are the real reactionaries.” But she remained unconvinced. The reason our conversation was so fruitless was that she decided that certain words like “liberal,” “labor” and “rationing” had a virtuous connotation and there was no way of getting her to look directly at the events that lay behind the words.

It was just this sort of wall of incomprehension you used to meet years ago when you argued the right of working people to form unions and to strike for improved working condition, or tried to explain that we ought to show a sympathetic interest in the social experiments that were going on in the Soviet Union. Then it was the capitalist slogans that were holding the fort; but during the past 20 years a new set of words has gradually become charged with a virtuous aura in the public mind. Now public ownership, planned economy, controls and socialized, have become words heavy with virtue, while profits, free enterprise, investment and even dividends have taken on an evil context that needs to be explained away.

Socialist Utopia

Picture: Work reproducing on canvas the scene which is spread before him. Where there is starvation he smugly paints a land flowing with milk and honey, where there is ugliness he is charmed by beauty, where there is slavery he finds a life of gracious ease, where there is graceless, violent death he sees only a graceful swan placidly swimming in its pond.

The public mind in America that 20 years ago dismissed unheard anything that smacked of a socialistic notion is now receptive to socialistic notions. Partly this comes from a reasoned change of attitude brought about by the success of some of the socialistic measures of Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, but partly it comes from the unthinking acceptance of the vocabulary of “liberal” propaganda that spread out in ripples from New Deal Washington, becoming vaguer and more confused and more destructive of clear thinking as the ideas that engendered it lost their vitality at the source. It is in this confused region of the popular mind that the communists have been able to carry on their most successful propaganda operations. Thus it comes to pass that the “liberals” who think a man is defeated in argument when they call him a “reactionary” show very little curiosity about the actual functioning of socialistic-going concerns that have come into being in the last 20 years. The “liberal” vocabulary that had some meaning in the 1920’s has now become a definite hindrance to understanding events in the world of the ‘40s.

Exactly 100 years have passed since Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels issued the Communist Manifesto, which became the first document in the formulation of modern socialism. Nineteen years later the bible of Marxism, Dos Kapital, was published, giving immense documentation to Marx’s theories that the collapse of capitalism was imminent; that it would inevitably be followed by a socialist utopia.

In the 1920’s there were a number of us in the U.S. who were convinced that this doctrine was valid. Those of us who were willing to be called socialists had some definite things in mind we thought would be achieved if ownership of industry were taken out of the hands of the finance capitalists and vested in the community.

We thought public service could be substituted for money profit as the driving motive of human behavior. We thought that with the ascendancy of an anti-militarist working class throughout the world war, and the threat of war would be replaced by peaceful cooperation in the international affairs. Of course it must be admitted that we were caught by the illusory belief that revolution would instill utopia. We were carried away by the blind enthusiasm for a new dispensation at hand that was sweeping the masses of the Western World. The revolutions have happened and regimes and empires have crashed in the mud, but the old problem of how to control man’s domination by man remains unsolved.

Enough socialized systems and institutions have been going concerns over a long enough period of time for us at least to begin to get some idea of how they are working out. It’s a most curious comment on the blindness induced by dogmatically held beliefs that in all the avalanches of print for and against socialism and free enterprise there’s so little comparative examination of capitalist and socialist organizations; there’s so little effort to try to discover how they work out for the men and women directly involved.

First let me give an example of a socialized institution that seems to me to have been a success. Rural electrification was one of the New Deal’s pet projects. It encouraged the establishment of local committees that gave a much needed impetus to local self-government in a very important field. Not only did it furnish increased electric service all over the country but by its brisk competition it shook the private companies out of their lethargy, so they greatly increased their service too.

At the other end of the scale in the experience of the average American come the Army and the Navy. We are not accustomed to thinking of the Army and the Navy as socialized institutions but that is exactly what they are. We all admit that in the time of ruin and rapine in which we live we can’t do without these vast engines for waste and destruction, but I’ve yet to meet a veteran of wither of these services who thinks that the Army way or the Navy way or even the Air Force way is the best way of running human affairs. About the best face we can put on our military establishment is to say that in spite of its cumbrous bungling it so far has managed to defeat our enemies in battle, and that up to now our civilian setup for production has been so monstrously efficient that we’ve been able to afford the waste of materials and the frustration of individual effort that the military system implies.

As citizens of a self-governing community it is our first duty continually to be asking ourselves what it is we want from our institutions.

At home in America we have seen enough of the working of socialized enterprises, successful and unsuccessful, to begin to understand the basic problem. We must realize that from the point of view of the well-being of men and women the contradiction is not between “capitalism” and “socialism” but between the sort of organization that stimulates growth and the sort that fastens on society the dead hand of bureaucratic routine or the suckers of sterile vested interests. We should by now have learned that the road must be kept open for experiment. We should have begun to learn that no society is stronger than its weakest members. By our habit of government we are committed to trying to keep a rough balance between the demands of different sections of the population. We haven’t solved the problem of defending every man’s freedom against domination by other men, but we have made a little bit of a beginning.

The museum of socialist failures

The rest of the world is becoming a museum of socialist failures. Our first problem now is to understand clearly the needs of our society and its relationship to the shaky socialized regimes of Europe and to the regime of the law of the club that centers in the Soviet Union. To do this we must free our minds of the stale and rotting verbiage left over from the noble aspirations of oldtime socialist theory.

Parents of British Socialism

It was failure to see the world clearly on the part of Franklin Roosevelt and his advisers that deprived us of the fruits of our wartime victory to the point that the things Americans hold most dear are in greater peril today than on the dreadful afternoon of Pearl Harbor. The responsibility for this loss of the peace lies not only in  the small group of political leaders in Washington but the whole body of thinking Americans whose thinking had just not caught up with the times.

The basic reason for this national failure was that as a nation we had forgotten that our sort of self-governing community can survive only in a world where new avenues for men’s ingenuity and enterprise are constantly opening up and where the areas of individual liberty are expanding. We had forgotten that liberty, like peace, is indivisible. We had forgotten that the only sensible foreign policy for the U.S. was to encourage liberty and oppose oppression.

While not forgetting our own shortcomings, if we are to catch up with the times and to see clearly the hideous world of growing servitude—a world of slavery like chattel slavery in the old South and the slavery of ancient times—which we have helped produce, we must understand the workings of the enemies of liberty and peace. The chief of these, in power and efficacy, is the government of the Soviet Union.

Wilson and Lenin

When the communist revolution exploded in Russia in the fall of 1917 the first World War had settled down to a stalemate along the trenches in northern France. The stubborn resistance the French were putting up to the equally stubborn German invasion was bleeding Europe to death. Among the rank and file of all the armies the feeling of mutiny against the senselessness of the butchery was rising to desperation. At that time two separate flares of hope appeared on the eastern and western horizons. In Washington Woodrow Wilson announced his Fourteen Points and in Petrograd Lenin and Trotsky fired the hungry and disorganized Russian mobs with the belief that communism would bring them peace, land and food. No one who was in Europe in 1917 and 18 can ever forget the surge of crazy confidence in the future that swept the Continent when Armistice Day came and the fighting stopped.

The people’s trust in the American way faded as Wilson let himself be trapped into the stale committee rooms of the old men or councils. To many of us at the time these soviets  seemed to be a new organ for self-government. For a moment it looked as if the working class under the Marxist leadership would succeed in renovating Europe.

It was not to be so easy. The old vested interests of Europe banded together for their own protection; by backing the reactionaries in the Russian civil war they ruined the hopes of free development for the new social system. The Communist party hardened fast into a military caste. The soviets and trade unions in the Soviet Union, instead of developing into organs of self-government, developed into machines run by tightly organized and fanatically dogmatic Marxist minority for the domination and exploitation of the masses. Lenin threw overboard the humanitarian baggage of Western socialism, and act symbolized in the transfer of the capital from European Petrograd to Asiatic Moscow. The civil war became a struggle for order, any kind of order. The only order the Russians knew was despotism. From the czarist autocracy the Communist government inherited the secret police. Individual liberty had hardly a breathing spell before it was stamped out again, first in the unorganized mass of people and then, as Stalin struggled for power against Trotsky, within the communist minority itself.

By the early ‘30s the social organization of the Soviet Union resembled much more the slave-run military autocracy of the Ottoman Turks than it did any of the European blueprints for a socialist utopia. This reaction to methods of government that had gradually been losing favor among civilized men for 500 years was accompanied by the building up of one of the most extraordinary propaganda facades in history. A constitution was promulgated on the Western model. The entire vocabulary of Western self-government was borrowed and applied to the machinery of despotism.

Utopia—with secret police

By killing off the old European trained Communists and exiling Trotsky, Stalin cleared out of the old Kremlin the last traces of Western humanitarianism. The organization of a free self-governing socialist community, which had been the first aim of the Russian revolutionists, was pushed forward in the future, when the millennium should come. Through the pull of this millennial dream Stalin’s regime managed to retain its grip over the aspirations of a large part of European working class. The Communist party, appealing through this basic utopian dogma to the emotions of confused and tortured people, backed and kept in line by the ruthless and skillfully exercised authority of the secret police, managed to create one of the most efficient machines for dominating and exploiting of mankind the world has ever seen.

It seems likely, from what we hear faintly through the screen of lies that hems in the Soviet Union, that there the illusions have lost their power in the face of the regime’s failure to produce even the rudiments of decent living for its subjects, and that the Kremlin now rules a depraved and exhausted people by brute force. Outside the Soviet Union, however, the utopian illusions of Communism still dominate many men’s hopes and dreams. Even some Americans opposed to the communists still talk as if it were an excess of progressiveness and idealism that caused Russian socialism to fail. We find Frenchmen and Americans and Canadians, in all other respects apparently capable of sane and normal thinking, who are willing to turn their backs on the traditions they were brought up in and to give their allegiance to the Kremlin, even to the point of committing treason. The success of the aggressions by the Soviet state in the last few years rests in great part on the Kremlin’s command over the adherents and sympathizers in the outside world. Largely because the rest of the world has not understood it the Russian socialized state has been allowed to develop into a military force for pillage and conquest. Still the faith of many of our “liberals” in the Kremlin’s idealistic aims has not faltered.

Those of us who believed in socialism in the ‘20s hoped it would promote self-government, expand individual liberty and make for a wider distribution of the good things of life. It is obvious even to Mr. Henry Wallace that the Soviet Union is not the place to look for these things. Not even the American communists really claim any of these achievements; what they say among themselves is that present miseries will be atoned for by the regime of justice and bliss that will be established once communism has completed its conquest of the world.

The Russians are barbarians, the Western socialists will tell you; in England it will be different.

Father of American Socialism

How different is it? If you go around Great Britain asking questions of as many different kinds of people as possible, as I did last summer, you sense that in its ultimate implications British socialism is turning out to be not so very different from the Russian brand. Of course there’s not the gory police terror of Stalin nor the Hitlerian pomp and parade through which the Kremlin daily expresses its power over the bodies and minds of men. There’s not the proselytizing enthusiasm of a quasi-religious dogma that accompanies the agents and armies of expanding Russia. There’s not the daily and visible and universal servitude; but neither has the socialism brought any broadening of personal liberty. On the contrary: personal liberty in Great Britain has been contracted.

The very humane and well-intentioned people who are running the Labor government are the first to deplore the losses of liberty you bring to their attention. They reassure you with pious hopes that the “direction of labor” measure, which limits the individual’s right to work where or when he likes, will be only a passing phase. Listening to the pious hopes, I couldn’t help remembering similar reassurances from equally humane and well-intentioned Russian communists who used to tell me, in the early days, that military communism was a passing phase which would disappear as soon as reactionary opposition was crushed. Thirty years have gone by, and military communism marches on to fresh massacres. A man has a right to ask the British Labor party whether 30 years from now direction of labor won’t be the cornerstone of a new system of exploitation of the productive workers by a new ruling class.

If there is one thing that mankind should have learned from the agonies of the last four decades it is that it’s never safe to do evil that good may come of it. The good gets lost and the evil goes on.

Distribution of poverty

Of course we must admit that the present situation of the people of Great Britain would be difficult enough if a choir of archangels, superhuman in brains and in self-abnegation, had assumed the government. The island’s economy was built up as the processing and financing center of an empire, which has irrevocably gone. The class that had ruled that economy through control of government, ownership of the land and domination of centralized finance and industry had become overweening rich and powerful. In their wealth and self-satisfaction the owners of Britain neglected to keep their industries tooled up to date or to protect the standard of living of their working people or to conserve their natural resources. When the Labor government came in after the war it inherited a concern that had long been bankrupt.

Government control of virtually the entire economy had already been instituted during the war. About all the Labor government has done is to amplify the wartime apparatus of bureaucratic management. The living standards of the working people who were Labor’s chief constituents had improved during the war, and the Labor government has continued that improvement, particularly for the lowest-paid third. Because there isn’t enough to go around anyway, this has been done at the expense of the middle class, traditionally the nursery of British brains and initiative. Virtually everybody has been reduced by high taxes and high prices to the same bare level of subsistence. Incentive for effort and innovation has tended to disappear. A man is better off if he soldiers along in the shop and spends his Saturdays betting on the races than if he works himself sick trying to rise in the world. The more his income rises the more taxation will take his earnings away from him and the more he’ll feel the dead weight of the bureaucratic tangle hampering his every move.

Bernard Baruch’s remark that socialism might not succeed in distributing wealth, but would certainly distribute poverty, has never been better exemplified. Up to now socialism in Great Britain has accomplished very little more than to freeze the bankrupt capitalist economy at its point of collapse. Its bureaucratic machinery, operating along the lines of the machinery of bankrupt capitalism, has not been able to stimulate the sort of revolutionary initiative thoroughgoing reorganization of the economy that might give the British people a chance to escape from their dilemma. Socialism has acted as a brake instead of as a stimulus to enterprise.

Man does not live by bread alone, the socialists will tell you. The answer is that as strong as the urge to eat, is the urge to exercise power over other men. In the past British institutions have done a moderately good job in curbing this deadliest of insticts. But in spite of political democracy British capitalism too often gave too much power to people whose only social gift was the knack of accumulating money. Now British socialism gives too much power to people whose only knack is getting themselves elected to offices in trade unions. At the same time the liberty movement and the freedom of action that allowed people to escape from under the heel of the capitalist have been seriously weakened.

The wrong leaders

England has a new ruling class. Added to such remnants of the old ruling class as have remained in office through holding administrative jobs in government, industry and the civil service, is an infusion of new blood from the trade-union leadership, leavened by an occasional intellectual who has talked or written his way into office. Now, the main training of trade-union officials is in hamstringing production for the purpose of wringing concessions from the owners for the workers. Neither idealistic intellectuals nor civil service employees have any training in industrial production. The result is that at the very moment when the British people need to throw all their energy into discovering new ways of production and training from doing anything effective to stimulate production. In recent months there has developed a tendency to give technicians an increasingly bigger share in policy-making, but on the whole Britain’s new ruling class tends to be so blinded by the utopian glamour of the word “socialism” that it has found it difficult to envisage the problem which confronts the nation.

Well if the government can’t help them, why can’t they help themselves? The British people, in my opinion, represent in themselves at this moment just about the highest development of Western civilized man. In the middle and upper classes you find a higher level of education than we have reached in America. The level of individual skill and craftsmanship in most trades is higher than ours. In the professionally trained part of the population, though there may be some flagging of creative spirit, there’s still a great reservoir of first-rate brains. The British people proved themselves to be still a great people by the dignity and discipline with which they fought off the German air attacks during the war. This great highly trained, highly disciplined and civilized nation is in danger of dying of inanition because in all the elaborate structure of the state there are so few cracks left where individual initiative can take hold.

The British will tell you that they are “quite free, quite.” But we don’t need to believe them. When a man can’t change his job without permission from someone sitting at an office desk, when he can’t perform any of the normal operations of buying and selling necessary to carrying on a business without a complicated correspondence to secure licenses from the Board of Trade, when he can’t appeal to the courts from administrative decisions, when he can be sentenced to jail for refusing to work in the mines, he’s no longer a free agent. The Briton still has his secret ballot in parliamentary and municipal elections. He’s free because he can vote, he’ll tell you. Unfortunately the record of history tends to prove that it’s very doubtful whether the vote alone, without economic and personal liberty of action, has ever protected any people against the exercise of arbitrary power.

A sinister footnote to the loss of concern for individual liberty that seems inevitably to follow the socialization of enterprise appears in the growing toleration of new forms of slavery. We are growing used to the stories of the vast slave camps in the Soviet Union and its satellite countries, but it comes somewhat as a shock to find the humane British tolerating the use of gangs of German prisoners to do agricultural labor. In all my conversation with farmers in England last summer I found only one man who disapproved of the practice. The farmers paid the prisoners nothing more than pocket money. The farmers found that they got more work out of prisoners if they fed them a hot meal in the middle of the day, but they didn’t seem to feel that the working of prisoners of war in this way constituted a backsliding in civilization; most of them regretted that the prisoners would soon be sent home. The wages of agricultural workers in England have been much improved in recent years and the socialists take justifiable pride in this achievement. The question they didn’t ask themselves when they tolerated the enslavement of the defeated Germans was how long a highly paid plowman or tractor operator would be able to compete with slave labor.

This brings us squarely up against the dilemma of our time. Under the cover of the dazzle of socialist illusions, and just at the moment when our technology is opening up the certainty of really widespread well-being in material things, the masses of mankind are being plunged back into a regime of misery and servitude such as has not existed in the West since the days of serfdom. We can’t  go on forever blaming on war damage a situation that results from the fact that socialized economics, instead of opening up new aspects of self-government and broader reaches of liberty for the individual, have backslid with dizzy speed into aboriginal oppressions. In the Soviet Union, failure to solve the problems of production at home has thrown Russian communism into a dangerous habit of aggression upon the rest of the world. As for Great Britain, we can hope they will find a way to combine socialism with liberty, or at least that the failure of socialized economy to provide its people with a decent life at home will produce a new explosion of British migration and colonization that will transmit to the future world of the West the valuable heritages from English culture. In America what we don’t want to forget is that we won’t have any Western world fit for a free man to live in unless we keep the avenues open for freedom and growth of individual man in the constantly proliferating hierarchical structure of modern industry.

Enemy of Socialism

Socialism is not the answer, we’ve got to do better than that.

This article was published in  magazine Jan 19, 1948. With Barack Obama and the modern democrat party we see history repeating itself, why do we want to establish in America which has been the greatest engine for the promotion of man and his ambitions with a failed concept that has been tried again and again with the same history of utter failure. You can see the results of socialism more pronounced now than at any other time in history, you need only to look at what is happening in Greece, France, Spain, etc.  It is apparent throughout the world socialism, marxism, communism, fascism, leninism, etc., are truly the “failed policies of the past.” All the democrats ever put forth are the “failed policies of the past” or while they do not offer solutions themselves, they simply demonize republican solutions, then blame the republicans for being obstructionists. Ridiculous!

The Doctrine of Fascism, Fascism Defined by Benito Mussolini

Fascism is absolute government control over private business; socialism is absolute government control over nationalized business. Both are huge-government liberalism, and no where near a conservative, capitalist society. Just as the left in America have tried to define and redefine moral and immoral behavior to suit their own agenda, so too, do the fascist, their agenda being that of the State.

The establishment GOP and the Democrat party have made U.S.A. a fascist nation, Political Correctness, Climate Change & Islam are the state endorsed religions. In doing so they have completely subverted, undermined and made the Constitution ineffective and void. A federal judge recently ruled that prayers before a state House of Representatives could be to Allah but not to Jesus.

I say they have made it Fascist, granted it may not be completely so at this point, but we are fast getting completely there. Fascism is absolute government control over private business, they do not have absolute control yet, although it could be argued they really do have it indeed. They control business by burdensome regulations, laws, corporate cronyism, using the power of government to limit competition, using it to force companies to act in the manner in which the federal government decides they should, there are many aspects to this in the federal and state governments.

In very broad strokes, socialism is an economic system in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy. While the word socialism is sometimes used interchangeably with communism, the two aren’t technically the same, communism is simply a more extreme form of socialism.

Communism advocates the “collective ownership of property and the organization of labor for the common advantage of all members.” While communism is first and foremost an economic system, it’s also a political ideology that rejects religion. And just as communism is a form of socialism, Marxism, Maoism, and Leninism are branches of communism.

Like socialism and communism, fascism uses a central authority to maintain control, but terror and censorship are common. It results from economic failure in democratic political systems. They are all based on government control over the individual and the denial of the individual in favor of the “whole”. However as with all of them, the “whole” ends up consisting only of those who are in power positions and in government.

Keynesian economics, fascism and socialism;

Mussolini personally set his approval and signature over a book which proclaims:

“Fascism entirely agrees with Mr. Maynard Keynes, despite the latter’s prominent position as a [so called] Liberal. In fact, Mr. Keynes’ excellent little book, The End of Laissez-Faire (l926) might, so far as it goes, serve as a useful introduction to fascist economics. There is scarcely anything to object to in it and there is much to applaud..”

Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power. – Mussolini

Keynes himself admired the Nazi economic program, writing in the foreword to the German edition to the General Theory (1936): “[T]he theory of output as a whole, which is what the following book purports to provide, is much more easily adapted to the conditions of a totalitarian state, than is the theory of production and distribution of a given output produced under the conditions of free competition and a large measure of laissez-faire.” – John Maynard Keynes

Hitler was named “Man of the Year” in 1938 by Time Magazine. They noted Hitler’s anti-capitalistic economic policies.
“Most cruel joke of all, however, has been played by Hitler & Co. on those German capitalists and small businessmen who once backed National Socialism as a means of saving Germany’s bourgeois economic structure from radicalism. The Nazi credo that the individual belongs to the state also applies to business. Some businesses have been confiscated outright, on other what amounts to a capital tax has been levied. Profits have been strictly controlled. Some idea of the increasing Governmental control and interference in business could be deduced from the fact that 80% of all building and 50% of all industrial orders in Germany originated last year with the Government. Hard-pressed for food- stuffs as well as funds, the Nazi regime has taken over large estates and in many instances collectivized agriculture, a procedure fundamentally similar to Russian Communism.” (Source: Time Magazine; Jaunuary 2, 1939.)

Keynesian economics facilitates government intervention and regulation of the market. That’s why it appeals to socialists, fascists, communists, statists, i.e. leftists.

The chief Nazi newspaper, Volkischer Beobachter, repeatedly praised “Roosevelt’s adoption of National Socialist strains of thought in his economic and social policies” and “the development toward an authoritarian state” based on the “demand that collective good be put before individual self-interest.”

Mussolini saw the connection of FDR and himself: In a laudatory review of Roosevelt’s 1933 book Looking Forward, Mussolini wrote, “Reminiscent of Fascism is the principle that the state no longer leaves the economy to its own devices. … Without question, the mood accompanying this sea change resembles that of Fascism.”

Fascism is the religion of Statism: “The Doctrine of Fascism” 1932 Author: Mussolini, Benito.

In the Fascist conception of history, man is man only by virtue of the spiritual process to which he contributes as a member of the family, the social group, the nation, and in function of history to which all nations bring their contribution. Hence the great value of tradition in records, in language, in customs, in the rules of social life. Outside history man is a nonentity. Fascism is therefore opposed to all individualistic abstractions based on eighteenth century materialism; and it is opposed to all Jacobinistic Utopias and innovations. It does not believe in the possibility of “happiness” on earth as conceived by the economistic literature of the XVIIIth century, and it therefore rejects the theological notion that at some future time the human family will secure a final settlement of all its difficulties. This notion runs counter to experience which teaches that life is in continual flux and in process of evolution. In politics Fascism aims at realism; in practice it desires to deal only with those problems which are the spontaneous product of historic conditions and which find or suggest their own solutions. Only by entering in to the process of reality and taking possession of the forces at work within it, can man act on man and on nature.

Anti-individualistic, the Fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with those of the State, which stands for the conscience and the universal, will of man as a historic entity. It is opposed to classical liberalism which arose as a reaction to absolutism and exhausted its historical function when the State became the expression of the conscience and will of the people. Liberalism denied the State in the name of the individual; Fascism reasserts the rights of the State as expressing the real essence of the individual. And if liberty is to be the attribute of living men and not of abstract dummies invented by individualistic liberalism, then Fascism stands for liberty, and for the only liberty worth having, the liberty of the State and of the individual within the State. The Fascist conception of the State is all embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value. Thus understood, Fascism, is totalitarian, and the Fascist State – a synthesis and a unit inclusive of all values – interprets, develops, and potentates the whole life of a people.

No individuals or groups (political parties, cultural associations, economic unions, social classes) outside the State. Fascism is therefore opposed to Socialism to which unity within the State (which amalgamates classes into a single economic and ethical reality) is unknown, and which sees in history nothing but the class struggle. Fascism is likewise opposed to trade unionism as a class weapon. But when brought within the orbit of the State, Fascism recognizes the real needs which gave rise to socialism and trade unionism, giving them due weight in the guild or corporative system in which divergent interests are coordinated and harmonized in the unity of the State.

Mussolini

Notice the arrogant stance and look on the face of all dictators. See pic at bottom of the post

Just as the modern democrat party is made up of various minority groups, including unions, who have joined together with the State to eliminate the individual in America and bring about centralized State control. Mussolini was a union boss and activist who was expelled from Trentino by the Austrians for his union activities. In Italy under the Fascists, Mussolini was Chairman of the “National Council of Corporations”. Formed in 1924, it established 22 “corporations” overseen by representatives of workers and owners. Strikes were forbidden, as were lockouts. Contrary to current leftist rhetoric, Mussolini loved unions, he used them and they him just as the modern unions and democrat party do in the U.S. today.

Grouped according to their several interests, individuals form classes; they form trade-unions when organized according to their several economic activities; but first and foremost they form the State, which is no mere matter of numbers, the sums of the individuals forming the majority. Fascism is therefore opposed to that form of democracy which equates a nation to the majority, lowering it to the level of the largest number; but it is the purest form of democracy if the nation be considered as it should be from the point of view of quality rather than quantity, as an idea, the mightiest because the most ethical, the most coherent, the truest, expressing itself in a people as the conscience and will of the few, if not, indeed, of one, and ending to express itself in the conscience and the will of the mass, of the whole group ethnically molded by natural and historical conditions into a nation, advancing, as one conscience and one will, along the self same line of development and spiritual formation. Not a race, nor a geographically defined region, but a people, historically perpetuating itself; a multitude unified by an idea and imbued with the will to live, the will to power, self-consciousness, personality.

In so far as it is embodied in a State, this higher personality becomes a nation. It is not the nation which generates the State; that is an antiquated naturalistic concept which afforded a basis for 19th century publicity in favor of national governments. Rather is it the State which creates the nation, conferring volition and therefore real life on a people made aware of their moral unity.

The right to national independence does not arise from any merely literary and idealistic form of self-consciousness; still less from a more or less passive and unconscious de facto situation, but from an active, self-conscious, political will expressing itself in action and ready to prove its rights. It arises, in short, from the existence, at least in fieri, of a State. Indeed, it is the State which, as the expression of a universal ethical will, creates the right to national independence.

Mussolini Time mag

Time Magazine 1936

A nation, as expressed in the State, is a living, ethical entity only in so far as it is progressive. Inactivity is death. Therefore the State is not only Authority which governs and confers legal form and spiritual value on individual wills, but it is also Power which makes its will felt and respected beyond its own frontiers, thus affording practical proof of the universal character of the decisions necessary to ensure its development. This implies organization and expansion, potential if not actual. Thus the State equates itself to the will of man, whose development cannot he checked by obstacles and which, by achieving self-expression, demonstrates its infinity.

[Fascism is:] A party governing a nation “totalitarianly” is a new departure in history. There are no points of reference or of comparison. From beneath the ruins of liberal, socialist, and democratic doctrines, Fascism extracts those elements which are still vital. It preserves what may be described as “the acquired facts” of history; it rejects all else. That is to say, it rejects the idea of a doctrine suited to all times and to all people. Granted that the 19th century was the century of socialism, liberalism, democracy, this does not mean that the 20th century must also be the century of socialism, liberalism, democracy. Political doctrines pass; nations remain. We are free to believe that this is the century of authority, a century tending to the “right”, a Fascist century. If the 19th century was the century of the individual (liberalism implies individualism) we are free to believe that this is the “collective” century and therefore the century of the State. It is quite logical for a new doctrine to make use of the still vital elements of other doctrines. No doctrine was ever born quite new and bright and unheard of. No doctrine can boast absolute originality. It is always connected, it only historically, with those which preceded it and those which will follow it. Thus the scientific socialism of Marx links up to the Utopian socialism of the Fouriers, the Owens, the Saint-Simons ; thus the liberalism of the 19th century traces its origin back to the illuministic movement of the 18th, and the doctrines of democracy to those of the Encyclopaedists. All doctrines aim at directing the activities of men towards a given objective; but these activities in their turn react on the doctrine, modifying and adjusting it to new needs, or outstripping it. A doctrine must therefore be a vital act and not a verbal display. Hence the pragmatic strain in Fascism, its will to power, its will to live, its attitude toward violence, and its value.

The keystone of the Fascist doctrine is its conception of the State, of its essence, its functions, and its aims. For Fascism the State is absolute, individuals and groups relative. Individuals and groups are admissible in so far as they come within the State. Instead of directing the game and guiding the material and moral progress of the community, the liberal State restricts its activities to recording results. The Fascist State is wide awake and has a will of its own. For this reason it can be described as “ethical”.

At the first quinquennial assembly of the regime, in 1929, I [Mussolini] said “The Fascist State is not a night watchman, solicitous only of the personal safety of the citizens; nor is it organized exclusively for the purpose of guarantying a certain degree of material prosperity and relatively peaceful conditions of life, a board of directors would do as much. Neither is it exclusively political, divorced from practical realities and holding itself aloof from the multifarious activities of the citizens and the nation. The State, as conceived and realized by Fascism, is a spiritual and ethical entity for securing the political, juridical, and economic organization of the nation, an organization which in its origin and growth is a manifestation of the spirit. The State guarantees the internal and external safety of the country, but it also safeguards and transmits the spirit of the people, elaborated down the ages in its language, its customs, its faith. The State is not only the present; it is also the past and above all the future. Transcending the individual’s brief spell of life, the State stands for the immanent conscience of the nation. The forms in which it finds expression change, but the need for it remains. The State educates the citizens to civism, makes them aware of their mission, urges them to unity; its justice harmonizes their divergent interests; it transmits to future generations the conquests of the mind in the fields of science, art, law, human solidarity; it leads men up from primitive tribal life to that highest manifestation of human power, imperial rule. The State hands down to future generations the memory of those who laid down their lives to ensure its safety or to obey its laws; it sets up as examples and records for future ages the names of the captains who enlarged its territory and of the men of genius who have made it famous. Whenever respect for the State declines and the disintegrating and centrifugal tendencies of individuals and groups prevail, nations are headed for decay”.

Dictator-Obama

The following statement is embedded in a speech delivered by Mussolini at Naples, October 24, 1912:

WE HAVE created our myth. The myth is a faith, it is passion. It is not necessary that it shall be a reality. It is a reality by the fact that it is a good, a hope, a faith, that it is courage. Our myth is the Nation, our myth is the greatness of the Nation! And to this myth, to this grandeur, that we wish to translate into a complete reality, we subordinate all the rest.

From Michael J. Oakeshott:
The Social and Political Doctrines of Contemporary Europe, pp. 164-8.
Copyright 1939 by Cambridge University Press.

Benito Mussolini (1883-1945), Duce of fascist Italy from 1922 to 1945, needs no introduction. The following selections are from his article entitled “The Doctrine of Fascism” which appeared in the Italian Encyclopedia of 1932.

THERE IS no concept of the State which is not fundamentally a concept of life: philosophy or intuition, a system of ideas which develops logically or is gathered up into a vision or into a faith, but which is always, at least virtually, an organic conception of the world.

1. Thus fascism could not be understood in many of its practical manifestations as a party organization, as a system of education, as a discipline, if it were not always looked at in the light of its whole way of conceiving life, a spiritualized way. The world seen through Fascism is not this material world which appears on the surface, in which man is an individual separated from all others and standing by himself, and in which he is governed by a natural law that makes him instinctively live a life of selfish and momentary pleasure. The man of Fascism is an individual who is nation and fatherland, which is a moral law, binding together individuals and the generations into a tradition and a mission, suppressing the instinct for a life enclosed within the brief round of pleasure in order to restore within duty a higher life free from the limits of time and space: a life in which the individual, through the denial of himself, through the sacrifice of his own private interests, through death itself, realizes that completely spiritual existence in which his value as a man lies.

3. Therefore it is a spiritualized conception, itself the result of the general reaction of modem times against the flabby materialistic positivism of the nineteenth century. Anti-positivistic, but positive: not skeptical, nor agnostic, nor pessimistic, nor passively optimistic, as arc, in general, the doctrines (all negative) that put the centric of life outside man, who with his free will can and must create his own world. Fascism desires an active man, one engaged in activity with all his energies: it desires a man virilely conscious of the difficulties that exist in action and ready to face them. It conceives of life as a struggle, considering that it behooves man to conquer for himself that life truly worthy of him, creating first of all in himself the instrument (physical, moral, intellectual) in order to construct it. Thus for the single individual, thus for the nation, thus for humanity. Hence the high value of culture in all its forms (art, religion, science), and the enormous importance of education. Hence also the essential value of work, with which man conquers nature and creates the human world (economic, political, moral, intellectual).

4. This positive conception of life is clearly an ethical conception. It covers the whole of reality, not merely the human activity which controls it. No action can be divorced from moral judgment; there is nothing in the world which can be deprived of the value which belongs to everything in its relation to moral ends. Life, therefore, as conceived by the Fascist, is serious, austere, religious: the whole of it is poised in a world supported by the moral and responsible forces of the spirit. The Fascist disdains the “comfortable” life.

5. Fascism is a religious conception in which man is seen in his immanent relationship with a superior law and with an objective Will that transcends the particular individual and raises him to conscious membership of a spiritual society. Whoever has seen in the religious politics of the Fascist regime nothing but mere opportunism has not understood that Fascism besides being a system of government is also, and above all, a system of thought.

6. Fascism is an historical conception in which man is what he is only in so far as he works with the spiritual process in which he finds himself, in the family or social group, in the nation and in the history in which all nations collaborate. From this follows the great value of tradition, in memories, in language, in customs, in the standards of social life. Outside history man is nothing. consequently Fascism is opposed to all the individualistic abstractions of a materialistic nature like those of the eighteenth century; and it is opposed to all Jacobin utopias and innovations. It does not consider that “happiness” is possible upon earth, as it appeared to be in the desire of the economic literature of the eighteenth century, and hence it rejects all teleological theories according to which mankind would reach a definitive stabilized condition at a certain period in history. This implies putting oneself outside history and life, which is a continual change and coming to be. Politically, Fascism wishes to be a realistic doctrine; practically, it aspires to solve only the problems which arise historically of themselves and that of themselves find or suggest their own solution. To act among men, as to act in the natural world, it is necessary to enter into the process of reality and to master the already operating forces.

7. Against individualism, the Fascist conception is for the State; and it is for the individual in so far as he coincides with the State, which is the conscience and universal will of man in his historical existence. It is opposed to classical Liberalism, which arose from the necessity of reacting against absolutism, and which brought its historical purpose to an end when the State was transformed into the conscience and will of the people. Liberalism denied the State in the interests of the particular individual; Fascism reaffirms the State as the true reality of the individual. And if liberty is to be the attribute of the real man, and not of that abstract puppet envisaged by individualistic Liberalism, Fascism is for liberty. And for the only liberty which can be a real thing, the liberty of the State and of the individual within the State. Therefore, for the Fascist, everything is in the State, and nothing human or spiritual exists, much less has value,-outside the State. In this sense Fascism is totalitarian, and the Fascist State, the synthesis and unity of all values, interprets, develops and gives strength to the whole life of the people.

8. Outside the State there can be neither individuals nor groups (political parties, associations, syndicates, classes). Therefore Fascism is opposed to Socialism, which confines the movement of history within the class struggle and ignores the unity of classes established in one economic and moral reality in the State; . . .

9. Individuals form classes according to the similarity of their interests, they form syndicates according to differentiated economic activities within these interests; but they form first, and above all, the State, which is not to be thought of numerically as the sum-total of individuals forming the majority of a nation. And consequently Fascism is opposed to Democracy, which equates the nation to the majority, lowering it to the level of that majority; nevertheless it is the purest form of democracy if the nation is conceived, as it should be, qualitatively and not quantitatively, as the most powerful idea (most powerful because most moral, most coherent, most true) which acts within the nation as the conscience and the will of a few, even of One, which ideal tends to become active within the conscience and the will of all — that is to say, of all those who rightly constitute a nation by reason of nature, history or race, and have set out upon the same line of development and spiritual formation as one conscience and one sole will. Not a race, nor a geographically determined region, but as a community historically perpetuating itself a multitude unified by a single idea, which is the will to existence and to power: consciousness of itself, personality.

10. This higher personality is truly the nation in so far as it is the State. It k not the nation that generates the State, as according to the old naturalistic concept which served as the basis of the political theories of the national States of the nineteenth century. Rather the nation is created by the State, which gives to the people, conscious of its own moral unity, a will and therefore an effective existence. The right of a nation to independence derives not from a literary and ideal consciousness of its own being, still less from a more or less unconscious and inert acceptance of a de facto situation, but from an active consciousness, from a political will in action and ready to demonstrate its own rights: that is to say, from a state already coming into being. The State, in fact, as the universal ethical will, is the creator of right.

1 l. The nation as the State is an ethical reality which exists and lives in so far as it develops. To arrest its development is to kill it. Therefore the State is not only the authority which governs and gives the form of laws and the value of spiritual life to the wills of individuals, but it is also a power that makes its will felt abroad, making it known and respected, in other words demonstrating the fact of its universality in all the necessary directions of its development. It is consequently organization and expansion, at least virtually. Thus it can be likened to the human will which knows no limits to its development and realizes itself in testing its own limitlessness.

12. The Fascist State, the highest and most powerful form of personality, is a force, but a spiritual force, which takes over all the forms of the moral and intellectual life of man. It cannot therefore confine itself simply to the functions of order and supervision as Liberalism desired. It is not simply a mechanism which limits the sphere of the supposed liberties of the individual. It is the form, the inner standard and the discipline of the whole person; it saturates the will as well as the intelligence. Its principle, the central inspiration of the human personality living in the civil community, pierces into the depths and makes its home in the heart of the man of action as well as of the thinker, of the artist as well as of the scientist: it is the soul of the soul.

13. Fascism, in short, is not only the giver of laws and the founder of institutions, but the educator and promoter of spiritual life. It wants to remake, not the forms of human life, but its content, man, character, faith. And to this end it requires discipline and authority that can enter into the spirits of men and there govern unopposed. Its sign, therefore, is the Lictors’ rods, the symbol of unity, of strength and justice.

Why do Democrats want to murder millions of innocent babies?

Yes, considering all the abortions that kill millions of the most innocent among us, and, the political party that pushes for them. “I think we can ALL agree” (as the democrats always say) that the Democratic party want to kill all babies!

I wrote another article about the atrocities committed in the name of a woman’s right to choose here. The Democrats War On Babies

“I recognize the Republican party as the sheet anchor of the colored man’s political hopes and the ark of his safety.” Fredrick Douglass

Considering that Planned Parenthood (which the Democrat party endorse and,, have a hissy fit every time the Republicans want to decrease the amount, of the rise in funding each year for said organization) and, that Planned Parenthood was founded by racist Margaret Sayer http://www.dianedew.com/sanger.htm who in her own words said “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”,,,,

I don’t know about the major cities where you live, however, I noticed the ones where I live. When I go to the areas of town with a denser population of American’s with African roots, there is also an increase of Planned Parenthood advertising in the areas, such as billboards, etc.

Following the logic, of the assertions by various democrat leaders, about Republicans wanting grandma to eat dog food, or wanting to kill women. Then I think we can all agree that simply proves, the Democratic Party are at their core racist,,,and want to kill millions of innocent babies!! Democrats “War On Babies” has been going on for decades!

Why is it that Democrats will reel in horror, and stand up in feigned outrage over some sicko murderer, child molester, rapist, etc. Getting the death penalty and being executed? Yet those same people are all for abortions, where doctors murder innocents every day? Why is it?

Do Democrats REALLY care about your children? Why Obama voted four times for infanticide

UK Pundit to Shocked TV Host: Suffering Children Should Be Smothered

Abortion Survivor Appears in Ad to Expose Obama’s Extreme Abortion Record

Babies development

A baby at six weeks after conception

Baby at eight weeks after conception

The baby’s heart begins beating between 18 and 24 days, even before the mother knows she is pregnant.

The baby moves his arms and legs at 6 weeks.

At 43 days his brain waves can be read, his heart is beating sturdily, his stomach produces digestive juices, the liver produces blood cells.

How callous and heartless does a person have to be, that would murder a baby at its most vulnerable point, in the beginning of life. Since Democrats are against the most fundamental right that exists, the right to life! Think about it! What other fundamental rights are they against?

Why is it when someone who murders a pregnant woman, and thereby kills her unborn baby, is then charged with two murders, yet a doctor murdering a baby by abortion is not!

So,,,next time an idiot liberal asks you some stupid question like “why do you want gramma to eat dog food” or “Why do you hate women?”

Ask them why they want to kill millions of babies with abortion on demand!!

Ask them why Barack Obama voted four times in the state senate against babies who survived an abortion being given any medical help to live. Therefore denying the babies who survive an abortion the most fundamental right that exists. That is the right to lfe

Am I a terrorist? Let’s see what Obama’s DHS says about it.

What are the FEMA camps for?

Who are the REAL threats domestically to the United States of America?

And who is it that is buying ammunition in bulk to hoard it?

Are Tea Party people who attend town halls Nazis? According to Nancy Pelosi they are.

Who are the REAL Nazi’s in America?

Please consider signing the ACLJ online petition to end funding to murder innocent babies!!

Something to think about: This is by far my most popular blog post from people using search terms on google, yahoo, etc.

The thing is, the people are using search terms like:

“What does my baby look like at 6 weeks”

“My baby at 6 weeks”

“My baby at 8 weeks”

and different other variations of those above.

Think about this: People, obviously mainly women, most likely thinking of abortion perhaps, some perhaps not.

These women however as you know when they search on google etc. They can plainly see what the “title” of the blog post is, as you see above, it does not pull any punches. This means they are searching for answers, that they are not finding elsewhere.

I think this is incredibly sad! What have we done to, and got to in America! God help us all to have the wisdom we need!! If you are one of those looking for answers, I pray God helps you in your decision!

The difference between the Democratic Platform and the Republican Platform

An old political poster that the Democrat party spoke the truth, much more so than they are willing to admit now. The good old days, when they didn’t have to lie to get elected!

Remember Cash for Clunkers! The “Party of Treason” at work!

Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) released calculations that show the economic failure of the “Cash for Clunkers” government sponsored program.

ATR President Grover Norquist said, “This is nothing more than the President using the guise of ‘green energy’ to cover-up yet another massive multi-billion dollar spending project. When are these people going to learn throwing money at the economy is not the answer?”

The analysis on the “Cash for Clunkers” program is below and can also be found on the web at www.atr.org.

Interesting analysis …  Oil field math by Stephen Wilkinson, CompleteRX Ltd

From the book “Totally Pissed Off: At Our Corrupt Progressive Unconstitutional Government”  By Robert “Bobeye” Inabinette.

“A clunker that travels 12,000 miles a year at 15 mpg uses 800 gallons of gas a year. A new vehicle that travels 12,000 miles a year at 25 mpg uses 480 gallons of gas a year.  So, the average Cash for Clunkers transaction reduced gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year. The government claims 700,000 clunkers have been replaced so that is 224 million gallons saved per year.  That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil. 5 million barrels is about 5 hours worth of US consumption. More importantly, 5 million barrels of oil at $70 per barrel costs about $350 million dollars.  So, the government paid $3 billion of our tax dollars to save $350 million. They spent $8.57 for every $1.00 they saved.

I’m pretty sure they will do a much better job with our health care though.”

British press tells truth about Obama

Some hard hitting truth from the British press.

The British papers are quite different from ours, they know what is going on and are not afraid to say it………………….

Wow! Obama’s broken promises from a lifelong Liberal Democrat

 liberal DenverPost Aurora Sentinel opinion piece by lifelong Democrat Chuck Green.
It is time that we asked George Bush to step aside so that Obama can get his presidency going.
Here’s an opinion piece by Chuck Green who writes “Greener Pastures” for the Denver Post Aurora Sentinel…one of the more liberal papers in the country. Additionally, Mr. Green is a lifelong Democrat…so this is rather a stunning piece…Obama is victim of Bush’s failed promises!

Barack Obama is setting a record-setting number of records during his first term in office:
Largest budget ever. Largest deficit ever. Largest number of broken promises ever.
Most self-serving speeches ever. Largest number of agenda-setting failures ever. Fastest dive in popularity ever!Wow! Talk about change.

Just three years ago, fresh from his inauguration celebrations, President Obama was flying high. After one of the nation’s most inspiring political campaigns, the election of America ‘s first black president had captured the hopes and dreams of millions. To his devout followers, it was inconceivable that a year later his administration would be gripped in self-imposed crisis.

Of course, they don’t see it as self-imposed. It’s all George Bush’s fault !

George Bush, who doesn’t have a vote in congress and who no longer occupies the White House, is to blame for it all.He broke Obama’s promise, to put all bills on the White House web site for five days before signing them.

He broke Obama’s promise, to have the congressional health care negotiations broadcast live on C-SPAN.

He broke Obama’s promise, to end earmarks.

He broke Obama’s promise, to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.

He broke Obama’s promise, to close the detention center at Guantanamo in the first year.

He broke Obama’s promise, to make peace with direct, no precondition talks with America ‘s most hate-filled enemies during his first year in office, ushering in a new era of global cooperation.

He broke Obama’s promise, to end the hiring of former lobbyists into high White House jobs.

He broke Obama’s promise, to end no-compete contracts with the government.

He broke Obama’s promise, to disclose the names of all attendees at closedWhite House meetings.

He broke Obama’s promise, for a new era of bipartisan cooperation in all matters.

He broke Obama’s promise, to have chosen a home church to attend Sunday services with his family by Easter.

Yes, it’s all George Bush’s fault! President Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the never-ending failed Bush administration.

If only George Bush wasn’t still in charge, all of President Obama ‘s problems would be solved. His promises would have been kept, the economy would be back on track, Iran would have stopped its work on developing a nuclear bomb and would be negotiating a peace treaty with Israel . North Korea would have ended its tyrannical regime, and integrity would have been restored to the federal government.Oh, and did I mention what it would be like, if the Democrats, under the previous leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, didn’t have the heavy yoke of George Bush around their necks? There would be no ear marks, no closed-door drafting of bills, no increase in deficit spending, no special-interest influence (unions), no vote buying (Nebraska, Louisiana).

If only George Bush wasn’t still in charge, we’d have real change by now.

All the broken promises, all the failed legislation and delay (health care reform, immigration reform) is not President Obama ‘s fault or the fault of the Democrat-controlled Congress. It’s all George Bush’s fault !

Take for example the decision of Eric Holder, the president’s attorney general, to hold terrorists’ trials in New York City. Or his decision to try the Christmas Day underpants bomber as a civilian.

Two disastrous decisions.

Certainly those were bad judgments based on poor advice from George Bush!

Need more proof?

You might recall that when Scott Brown won the election to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts, capturing “The Ted Kennedy Seat”, President Obama said, Brown’s victory was the result of the same voter anger that propelled Obama into office in 2008. People were still angry about George Bush and the policies of the past 10 years. And they wanted change.

Yes, according to the president, the voter rebellion in Massachusetts , was George Bush’s fault.

Therefore, in retaliation, they elected a Republican to the Ted Kennedy seat, ending a half-century of domination by Democrats. It is all George Bush ‘s fault!

Will the failed administration of George Bush ever end, and the time for hope and and change ever arrive ???Will President Obama ever accept responsibility for something/anything?

Liberals and celebrity endorsements

You know I get tired of these liberals and celebs, telling us what we need to give to charity, or fund with our tax dollars. They lecture us, and tell us how we need to live our lives. I think, they need to concern themselves, with themselves. How many of them, give even a tenth of what they make to charity. They think spending a few minutes or hours doing a commercial or concert, where they implore us to get behind some cause that interests them, or charge for a concert, to then give our money to whatever cause is in fashion at the time. They think by doing so, they are showing they care, or they are doing something good. They, are only really generous with other peoples money. All these people should show us their tax statements, to show how generous they are, as a percentage of giving to gross income.

All those, that tell us we have to do this, or that to save, cure, solve, restore, defeat, etc. the list is endless. They’ve spent, how many years telling us how Christians want to control every bodies lives. I don’t remember (in recent history) them ever using government or activist judges to take our money, to fund their pet organizations, or passing laws to punish people or to try to limit my freedom, to live my life as I see fit. All any Christian has ever tried to do, is to convince me Jesus wants to save and deliver me from my sins. Just because Christians make some people feel uncomfortable, because of the shame these people feel themselves, when they are around Christians. They then accuse the Christians of judging them, or trying to force them to believe what they do. The Christians try to uplift us, out of our shame with love. The liberals/progressives try to beat us down with shame/guilt that they themselves try to contrive in us. They use the planet, the children, the poor, animals, the sick, etc. to shame us into following their agendas. They imply that if we don’t do what they want, that we personally do not care about our own children, the planet, the polar bears, women, the caribous, the poor, sea turtles, seals, whales, wolves, trees, the air, the ocean, the list again is endless. The only thing I’ve heard of Christians trying to save, is peoples souls. Using the liberals words here “I think we can all agree that” by the conditions we see in all our major cities, a lot of peoples souls need to be saved. The liberals they want to repress our souls, and beat us down till there is nothing left. As a matter of fact, all the things that seem en vogue now, are a lot of the things that Christ tried to convince his followers to do, some 2000 years ago.

The liberals tell us to be tolerant, however, look at what they did to Joe Lieberman when he dared disagree with them on the war. They kicked him out of their political party, that was really tolerant of them.

The things the democrats accuse their opponents of, are always things that they themselves are guilty of. Look at the Tea Party for example, you couldn’t find a more diverse group of Americans, both the candidates and the people who support them. Yet, these past few years, we have witnessed a relentless campaign against the people of the Tea Party movement, which consists of almost every segment of the population, the candidates include, women, blacks, Indian, Hispanic, etc. They, and their backers are from every political, economical, geographical and religious class. The very picture of bi-partisan, multiracial, non-gender specific, group of American’s united together, to solve the problems of America. Which, again, I think we can all agree, the problems have been in, and originate from Washington D.C. We’ve heard the democrats and liberals call the Tea Party people insane, racist, bigots, homophobes, Nazis, women haters, etc. again the list is endless. All this by the people who are always lecturing us on tolerance, being bipartisan, inclusive, multicultural, etc. The Congressional Black Caucus has even questioned whether they would allow the black tea party members to join their caucus.

The liberal/progressive idea of working with others is, forcing the people they work with ,to do what the liberals/progressives want. They say they are for democracy, for majority rule, yet every-time the majority vote and pass a state prop. the liberals/progs do not like, they sue, saying it is unconstitutional. All the while, they ignore the Constitution in everything they do. They use their judges, to bend the law, or ms-interpret the Constitution, or to twist what it says, to accommodate whatever argument they are making, trying to convince us they are right. They are doing the exact opposite, of what they are telling us, they are trying to do, that is the only way they can get their agendas passed. They say they want to punish our enemies, i.e. other Americans they do not like, or disagree with, i.e. bankers, tea-party people, pharma, doctors, etc. seems the only ones who are exempt from it other than liberal/progs are trial lawyers. Punishing them does nothing to help me, the only ones it seems to help, are those that want to punish them for us. President Obama said something in his comments on the midterm elections, that encapsulates the problem with the left. He said “No one party can dictate the way going forward.” Dictate? He seems that have an understanding, that the government dictates over the people, instead, of understanding that the power of government, belongs to the people and that we hire them to represent our interests in government. We do not hire the liberals/progs, environmentalists, and celebs to whatever their current cause is.

The liberals/progs accuse the Christians of being hypocrites, for sometimes failing to live up to a life, that they themselves don’t even have the guts to attempt to live up to. They say practice what you preach. Yet, the most vocal liberals/progs are the biggest hypocrites there are, they display it every day on television. They even use the education system nowadays trying to coerce our children into believing in their progressive causes and theories.

They try to use our children against us i.e to compel us, they use us against each other, all to advance their self-righteous agendas. I’m sick of the liberal/progressives trying to save me, my children, the planet, polar bears, whales, etc., all while trying to get me to relinquish my freedoms, privacy, beliefs, behavior, etc. to suit them and their beliefs.

“Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force! Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for him.” by Napoleon Bonaparte

Here is why the leftist politicians want class warfare

The following is the exact text of Martin Niemoller’s address to the U.S. Congress. There are as many versions of Mr. Niemoller’s address, (some call it a poem) as there are people who quote him.

Here is Martin Niemoller’s actual address to the U.S. Congress along with the page in the Congressional Record where it appears.

The exact text of what Martin Niemoller said,
and which appears in the Congressional Record,
October 14, 1968, page 31636 is:

“When Hitler attacked the Jews
I was not a Jew, therefore I was not concerned.
And when Hitler attacked the Catholics,
I was not a Catholic, and therefore, I was not concerned.
And when Hitler attacked the unions and the industrialists,
I was not a member of the unions and I was not concerned.
Then Hitler attacked me and the Protestant church —
and there was nobody left to be concerned.”

I must point out that the unions in this day and time have joined together with the leftist, they want to be the ones who control the rest of us. Now it is the people who didn’t wear seatbelts, then it was the smoker’s, then those who are over-weight, then they came for the SUV owners, then those who eat more salt than others. Now they are coming for your Cocoa Pebbles, Lucky Charms, peanut butter, Corn Flakes, Special-K, Raisin Bran, Rice Crispies, Wheaties, apple cinnamon instant oatmeal, Mott’s apple sauce, it’s about saturated fats, forget jelly it has too much sugar and the list is endless. There are even those that want to control how much toilet paper we use.

Who are the real Nazi’s in this day and time

 

Winston Churchill on Muslims and Islam

 

“Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”
— The Rt Hon Sir Winston Churchill, 1899
— (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248-50 London)

A couple of other things worth noting:

The view of an English woman dealing with what the left wants us to have in the United States of America: I will never subscribe to the PC’ism that “Islam is a gentle religion” .. because it is patently untrue for anyone who has not taken leave of their senses & isn’t sleep-walking through life. It is archaic, and needs reforming. Christianity has done it already.. after a long bloody history… now it’s time for Muslims to kick out the self-serving maniacs who are using this flawed belief as a vehicle to power & it is past time to leave behind the barbarism, the insanity and the monumental hypocrisy. But of course they can’t, without help, because it is suicide .. built-into the system .. like totalitarianism, communism, fascism & the rest you wish to consider about those who seek to control humankind for their own agendas & know just how to do it.

–A German’s View on Islam (from an email)
A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. ‘Very few people were true Nazis,’ he said, ‘but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies estroyed my factories.’ We are told again and again by ‘experts’ and ‘talking heads’ that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.
The hard quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the ‘silent majority,’ is cowed and extraneous. Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.
China ‘s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.
The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.
And, who can forget Rwanda , which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘peace loving’?
History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because like my friend from Germany , they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

Peace-loving Germans,Japanese,Chinese,Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.
As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts; the fanatics who threaten our way of life.
Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world wide, read this and think about it, and send it on – before it’s too late.

CENSORSHIP FACEBOOK HEADS UP!! SUGGESTION 4 EVERYONE ON FB!! VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!

I am, or was “Proud Hobbit” on Facebook, until Facebook contacted me yesterday i.e. Thurs/Fri. telling me that I wasn’t using my “real name” and that my account was suspended until I provided my real name, and updated my Facebook account using it. The censorship has begun, I would therefore suggest the following. This is the second time I have been censored on Facebook! After I changed the name, because I frequently refresh screen, one of the first times I did this, after they made me change my name. I got a Facebook notification that my account was temporarily unavailable, to try again in a few minutes. I waited, refreshed again, it took me to Run, Sarah, Run! Sarah Palin 2012 which I have listed on page as my employer.  (Facebook now referred to as FB)

If you are on FB do the following!

Open up Wordpad or Notepad, while still on your FB page,,after Wordpad/Notepad opens,,,,,,go to the page that lists your FB friends, i.e. click the link to left side of your FB page that says Friends,,,after your friends page is open,,,,highlight the name of your first friend like you would when you highlight something you wish to copy and paste,,,,after it is highlighted,,,,scroll down the page,,,,,keep scrolling until you reach the end of your lists of friends,,,,,,hold down shift key,,,,click to the right side of last name,,,,,all names should then be highlighted,,,,,hit ctrl + C,,to copy,,,,go to Wordpad/Notepad,,,click in document window so that you can type in the document,,,,,,hit ctrl + V to paste ,,,,,walla!!! you now have a list of all your FB friends,,,,,update frequently using same method,,

I would also suggest you exchange emails or go to each others FB pages and get the email info off each one,,,if you are like me, though,,none of your FB pages contains your main email address,,,therefore you should contact each friend and get their main email address.

I don’t mean web-based email like hotmail,,gmail,,,etc..I mean the email at your Internet service provider,,they can censure you just as easily on the web-based email providers as they can on facebook. I would also suggest that you exchange phone numbers with your most trusted friends, but always be cautious and remain vigilant for trolls and traitors!

Founders on the 2nd Amendment
Friday at 4:30am

After posting this, I now have to enter the security code to post from my blog on Facebook, never had to before!

I also have a friend that used the name “TheObama Hustle” that had his FB page deleted, no warning nothing. They said he was using a celebrity name. He is skip tracer and had been posting things concerning the lies, fraud, etc. that are Obama. You can see his blog and what he is currently doing here http://theobamahustle@wordpress.com/. He has proceeded to press charges against BO for fraud concerning the land, the Obama’s supposedly bought from Tony Resko.

Facebook Alternative Diaspora Launches in Beta

UPDATE: I am slow to anger, but when that anger comes, it is not something that goes away easily, and it only makes me more determined. I am going to keep a track of my Facebook posts to my James Davis (Proud Hobbit) wall, for you to follow and for my own purposes, records, etc.

Where it started was actually with my first facebook account, FamilyTrees Genealogy. During the debt debate, I would get on Speaker John Boehners FB page. Some leftist trolls got on his page, they were making all kinds of comments attacking him, spreading lies, disinformation, and generally tying up the comments with their banter back and forth, dwarfing all the legitimate comments, from concerned citizens. I watched them do this for two days until I got tired of it. I then started posting links to facts on the net, responding to their comments and arguments. I posted quotes from their supposed hero Thomas Jefferson that refuted, or put into context quotes they were using from him. They didn’t like that, so they started using one of the another Founder,, and put after his name “non-slave owner” I then started using the same founder and put same “non-slave owner” like they did. They then went to Reagan, I refused to argue with them, I just kept posting facts with links to those facts. They then went to Jesus, I knew more than they did on that subject too. They then started calling me names, again I did not stoop to their level, I just kept posting facts. They could not defeat me, so they told FB I was spamming so that FB blocked me from posting publicly. I then got contacted by a friend to start another FB account. Now it has just gone on from there. Follow timeline of my FB page posts to see what happened.

NOTE: **** indicates a separate the set of comments as I and other posted them.

Update; took out comments  to cut down on size, and to not bore people, kept links to FB censorship articles. If you want me to put comments back, please do not hesitate to ask me to.

AUG. 25 2011 UPDATE!! I was adding the following link and others like it to my FB wall, everyone I had to enter the FB Censorship code,,

http://twitpic.com/6b5pfa

I was only able to add 13 of them before I got this message. Keep in mind we are talking my Facebook Wall and I can GUARANTEE NONE of my Friends complained

I added this to the post I put on my wall with the pic below

“OKAY FACEBOOK CENSORS!! THIS IS MY WALL!!! MY FRIENDS DO NOT CARE WHAT I POST TO MY WALL!!! SO I AM GETTING THIS ONLY BECAUSE THE FACEBOOK CENSORS ARE MONITORING MY WALL!! WHY DO YOU FIT SO APPROPRIATELY THE SECOND WORD AS SO MANY TIMES YOU DO WHEN I HAVE TO ENTER YOUR CENSORSHIP CODES, WHICH I RECEIVED WHEN POSTING OUR FALLEN WARRIORS BELOW THIS POST!!!!”

Facebook BETRAYAL of OUR FALLEN WARRIORS

Notice how the second word fits so well the thing they are censoring that I am posting,,,this is a common occurrence!

swore, that if we didn’t raise the debt ceiling that we’d lose the AAA rating. Sure enough just as has become the norm for the Obama administration. they said we’d lose the AAA rating if we didn’t raise the debt ceiling. They raise the ceiling, we lose the AAA rating and the stock market plunges.

The reason it seems like Geitner, and the whole of the Obama administration seem wholly unfit for the offices they occupy is because THEY ARE! They have cheated at everything all their lives, they’ve never had to measure up to the vaunted ideas they have of themselves and each other. All they have ever done is game the system, the people and the country. All in a quest to gain wealth and power for themselves and their cronies. Cronies like GE CEO and Obama Jobs Czar Jeffrey R. Immelt, who pays no taxes, gets stimulus money and then moves jobs over seas.

Everything they have ever done has been to agitate people in poor neighborhoods,who are too busy struggling to survive, to pay attention to the fact they are being played, and used by these same people. People who care for you only as long as you are useful to them. A good example is Cindy Sheehan, she has been protesting just as fiercely Obama’s war as she did Bushes, but do you ever hear of her anymore? No, she has been cast aside, just like so many other people used by the liberal/progressive/leftist/democrats through the years. She is just the latest and most glaring example of one of the “little” people they have used. Then you have people like Anthony “I can’t keep my hands off my junk” Weiner. Who as soon as he become a liability politically they dropped this rising star, as fast as he dropped his pants. Not that I feel sorry for Geitner, he’ll do all right, probably get a job at CNN alongside “client number nine” Eliot Spitzer.

I do though feel sorry somewhat for Cindy Sheehan and people like her, that have been used, then tossed aside by the Democrats, throughout the last dozen decades. Even more, I feel sorry for all the people who have had no hope for the same number of decades, because they believed the lies that people like Barack and his leftist cronies have told them, again for decades. Then they have voted the liars into office, only to have their lives destroyed even more, because the liars never worked on anything in their lives, other than how to cheat the next group of victims they wish to exploit. They have never worked a real job in their lives, they have only worked at theories in universities or politics. So it matters little to them, that once again they caused the catastrophe they promised we’d avoid, if we only compromised again, with them. They have never had to face up to the results and consequences for their actions. They’re always too busy looking for the next group of “victims” they can help.

Once again also, the spineless GOP proved their weakness by not standing with US in the Tea Party, thereby they helped create another mess, the Tea Party is going to left in 2012 to clean up, after we kick them, and this administration to the curb, just as they have done to us, so many times in the past. GOP complicity, complacency, capitulation
or compromise, it REALLY doesn’t matter which. The leadership of the GOP has shown they are unwilling to tackle the tough issues, nor willing to fight the good fight on behalf of We the American people.

I say then that it is time we primary Tea Party candidates against them all, both GOP and Democrat, and throw the bums out on their ears. They have been filling our ears with lies for so long, that it seems like poetic justice to me. We are fed-up with the FED and it is time for. we the people to have our anger and hunger fed by getting rid of the lying, cheating, compromising politicians in Washington, once and for all. Not only to get rid of them, but defeat them in such an all consuming way, that they do not soon forget in Washington what we the people can do when we get fed-up with the games of the FED in DC.

Why I Hate Leftists, Progressive, Liberal Hypocrisy!

Why I hate leftists! Let me start by saying, the current problem we have in America is, all the leftist rich kid radicals from the 60’s, are now in places, of what once were High honor, before they corrupted them with their quest to control the rest of us. While they could NEVER control themselves! Now they are running the government, thereby running America into the ground, implementing their leftist tyrannical ideology. Thinking they are so smart, when they are REALLY, the most unlearned among us, because they, unlike the rest of us, never had to struggle in the REAL WORLD! They have never done anything, outside the university, government and politics. They grew up with the indulgences of their parents, who were also indulged throughout their lives.

They never experienced walking barefoot in the pasture, and accidentally getting cow manure between their toes. They’ve never worked on a car with points in it, under a shade tree in the yard. They’ve never toiled for years on a farm, and barely eked out a living from the dirt. Indeed most of them don’t even know what it’s like, to have dirt under their finger nails. The closest they come to getting dirt under their nails is when they touch the mud pack of their facials.

They fly around in private jets, while lecturing the rest of us about what kind of vehicle WE should drive. They use bidet’s to clean off their bums, while lecturing the rest of us on how many sheets of toilet paper to use. They’ve never known the feeling of wiping there butts with a leaf in the woods. They’ve never used an outhouse, while looking at the stars thru the crescent  moon cut in the door. They don’t know what it was like, as a kid to experience a country boys mud pack, i.e. a mud fight with your siblings and friends, whereby you get mud not only all over your face, but the rest of your body as well.

They don’t know what it’s like, to have to work 2-3 jobs just to keep their families fed, clothed and sheltered. They don’t know the feeling of a cow’s tit while milking in the early morning. They didn’t grow up watching their mom’s and dad’s working themselves to death, just to send their kids to college. They’ve never set on the end of a dock fishing, while the crawdads pinched their toes, alongside their grandfather in the heat of summer. They drive around in $250,000 cars, if they aren’t being driven in a limo, while trying to make the rest of us ride on commuter trains, buses, bicycles, etc.

They don’t know the putt-putt sound of the tractors engine, while preparing the ground to get the family crops in. If they want a garden they pay someone else to plant a little garden that means nothing to them, if the grasshoppers eat up all the fruits of their labors. Matter of fact most of them wouldn’t know a grasshopper, if the saw one in real life. The closest any of them have ever been to a cricket, is Jiminy Cricket in the cartoons.

They don’t know We The People, because they have never experienced the hardships, that their policies, do to the average American. They don’t know us, because they have never caught fire flies on the prairie, put them in a jar to read a comic book by after their parents put them to bed. Indeed their parents never put them to bed, nor knelt down humbly beside them at their bed, and said “Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep”. Nor have they ever done the same with their own children. All the while lecturing us, on how we should let them give OUR children condoms in grade school.

They spend millions and millions of tax dollars “researching” their junk science theories, like man made global warming, while not even factoring in the effects of the one thing that causes warming, the Sun. They do this, just so they can come up with more ways to “convince” the rest of us to give them more taxes. Taxes they can then use to “research” more ways to control our lives. They fly around in private luxury jets, while creating the TSA goon squad for the rest of us, under the pretense of hurting some terrorist Islamic fascists feelings with profiling, terrorists who would cut off their heads, given half a chance.

They use taxpayer dollars to fly to New York for a night on the town, while telling the rest of us, our children or grandchildren, to eat our peas. They cozy up to Islamic terror groups, while calling the Tea Party Patriots terrorists and Hobbits for wanting Washington to stop spending those same children and grand children’s futures into oblivion. They tell us to “Do it for the Children” not caring they are enslaving our children with debt.

Robert Kennedy Jr at one of his numerous environmentalist wacko rallys

They take a helicopter to take pictures of themselves on glaciers, most of us will never be privileged enough to see, telling us our breath is the poison, causing those glaciers to melt. While ignoring the fact the earth was once covered in ice. They spend thousands of dollars a month for electricity, while lecturing us on what light bulbs we need to use.

They send their kids to private schools, while keeping the rest of us from having school choice! They ALWAYS say do it for the children, while they want as many of those same children as possible, aborted at or before birth!

They lecture us about giving more money to government to feed the poor and needy, while never giving a dime of their own money to charity. They lecture us about the homeless, having never spoken to, nor spent time, with those same homeless people.

LAPD officers in hazmat suits sort through trash and belongings left behind occupy LA / Wall Street crowd. this is what the occupy crowd left behind at all their so-called rallies!

They leave a garbage dump in the wake of their “rallies” while treating the Tea Party Patriots like uncouth peasants, and telling these same Patriots, how they need to pay more taxes to clean up the environment. There are many books and thousands of web pages dealing with their hypocrisy and lies.

They talk about others telling the truth, never having known the truth or having been honest themselves! If they were honest, they would never get elected!

They are the most intolerant among us, they are the most hypocritical among us. They are whining brats, who need to look within! Instead of worrying about what the rest of us are doing. They use thug tactics, while telling the rest of us, we need to be civil. They lecture us on compromise, while never having known compromise themselves. The list is long and endless. Most of them like the Kennedy’s money came from nefarious means. They don’t know average Americans, nor do they want to. They think we smell up the Capitol buildings. While their wickedness and hypocrisy smell to high heaven.

They have accused Christians for years of telling them how to live their lives, while they now create laws and policies to ACTUALLY control ALL our lives themselves!

They are the ones Jesus spoke against, got angry with, and ran out of the Temple. They are the ones, who have created EVERY problem America has had, since its founding! They ARE the ones the Founders warned US about!
