On the road for a few days and the internet service crashed…check back soon. Thank heaven for cellphone internet…even if it is slow and hard to type…
Classes struggle, some classes triumph, others are eliminated. Such is history; such is the history of civilization for thousands of years.
Chinese Chairman (and tyrant) Mau Zedong
Andrew’s Note: Much of the strength of our Republic is derived from the fact that we have class mobility. Our Nation must endeavor to continue providing equality of opportunity, eliminate preferences by class, category or birth station so that we can avoid the class struggle that has so plagued the rest of the world. I fear that powerful interests have staked their futures on inciting class warfare by selling many a diet of envy, protection from their own poor decisions and ‘equality of outcomes.’

Today it’s traditional to take a break from the day-to-day and gather with family and friends to count our blessings. We face many challenges individually, as families, and as a nation, but no matter the challenges there are blessings to be counted…I urge you to do so.
Additionally, as you gather today remember that those you choose to spend this day with are likely those that you would gather with in the event of a disaster… for mutual aid, support and even survival. Family and Community Support is essential to preparedness.

The America of my time line is a laboratory example of what can happen to democracies, what has eventually happened to all perfect democracies throughout all histories. A perfect democracy, a ‘warm body’ democracy in which every adult may vote and all votes count equally, has no internal feedback for self-correction. It depends solely on the wisdom and self-restraint of citizens… which is opposed by the folly and lack of self-restraint of other citizens. What is supposed to happen in a democracy is that each sovereign citizen will always vote in the public interest for the safety and welfare of all. But what does happen is that he votes his own self-interest as he sees it… which for the majority translates as ‘Bread and Circuses.’
‘Bread and Circuses’ is the cancer of democracy, the fatal disease for which there is no cure. Democracy often works beautifully at first. But once a state extends the franchise to every warm body, be he producer or parasite, that day marks the beginning of the end of the state. For when the plebs discover that they can vote themselves bread and circuses without limit and that the productive members of the body politic cannot stop them, they will do so, until the state bleeds to death, or in its weakened condition the state succumbs to an invader—the barbarians enter Rome.

I have no more than twenty acres of ground the whole of which I cultivate myself with the help of my children; and our labor keeps off from us the three great evils – boredom, vice, and want.
The will to win is worthless if you do not have the will to prepare.
