Socialism Endorses Theft

Sanders The SocialistHistorically Socialism, (Collectivism, Democratic Socialism, Communism, Totalitarianism or whatever other name you want to give it) has proved so wildly successful that Bernie Sanders, a major Democrat presidential candidate and his legion of supporters are thinking…

Argentina has such a great economy…

Venezuela no longer can import or produce most consumer goods…

Greece figured out a way to make temporarily make Germany pay for retirement benefits starting at age 50 and it only cost them their dignity and future…

Jews and other ‘undesirable’ groups fared so well under National Socialism (NAZI) rule in 1930’s and 40’s Germany…

The multitude of refugees fleeing Cuba in death defying homemade watercraft over the past half century just didn’t properly understand the tiny nations social principals and how poverty and oppression is good for them…

China even takes away their citizens’ subjects’ right to reproduce with a one-child policy that is as cruel as it is demographically challenging…who’s going to take care of billions of geriatric Chinese in a few decades…

Even the once powerful Soviet Union has been banished to the dust heap of history…and yet many Americans, including Senator Bernie Sanders exclaim…

“Socialism, I’ve got to get me some of that!”

British Prime Minister  Margaret Thatcher really was right about socialist governments when she stated that “They always run out of other people’s money.”  It’s hard to deprive folks of their hard earned private property without also taking away other rights and freedoms:

… like the freedom of speech, an example of which is a proposal by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) to utilize R.I.C.O. laws designed to prosecute organized crime to go after climate change skeptics.

…like the freedom of the press which has suffered a number of assaults recently including the report of a Supreme Court Justice chomping at the bit to hobble independent journalism outlets like the Drudge Report utilizing a ‘reinterpretation’ of copywrite law or, as Jennifer Granock of Forbes described it in an article last year this “has been the most aggressive Administration in history, not only in going after whistleblowers, but also pursuing the reporters who write their stories” utilizing criminal statutes.

…even We The People‘s last bastion against tyranny or foreign invasion has come under attack with President Obama and Democrat presidential contender Hillary Clinton openly calling for firearms confiscations and the end to our 2nd Amendment as we know it.

Please encourage your friends and love ones who consider Socialism a construct worth considering to study Economics, History, Logic or even the psychology of basic human motivations so they can learn for themselves the devastation that a Tragedy of the Commons could reach on the scale of a nation such as ours.

Secretary Clinton’s Marxist Revelation – Quote

Dear Saul

When is that new book [Rules for Radicals] coming out—or has it come and I somehow missed the fulfillment of Revelation?

Hillary Rodham Clinton writing to Saul Alinsky in July 1971 via Read Hillary Clinton’s Letters to Saul Alinsky

Andrew’s Note:  If you’re not familiar with the book Secretary Clinton is describing as ‘Revelation’ it’s a Marxist dirty tricks manifesto which Alinsky dedicated to Lucifer himself.

This Is How Empires Collapse – Today’s Quote

Politicians cannot get this through their head that the economy functions always in anticipation of future events. They are just crazy – although not out of their mind entirely just yet. They can read a script, but they are incapable of understanding the people or math.

These people are simply beyond control. All they can see is the immediate issue to survive day-by-day. They have absolutely zero comprehension of what they are doing and even less understanding of what happens when there is no more money they can raid. Those at the helm of the world need no elite-conspiracy. They are too stupid to have long-term plans beyond 30 days. This is how Empires Collapse – they are following the precise step-by-step guide for total chaos.

Andrew’s Note:  Armstrong is commenting on British Prime Minister David Cameron’s expressed desire to raid British bank accounts and the anticipated bank run that will proceed it.  If you think that wealth confiscations can’t happen in Europe than ask the people of Cyprus.  Makes you a little nervous that we’ve embraced European socialism in the U.S. doesn’t it…

Educated Smart and Ignorant – Today’s Quote

Someone summarized Barack Obama in three words — “educated,” “smart” and “ignorant.” Unfortunately, those same three words would describe all too many of the people who come out of our most prestigious colleges and universities today.

President Obama seems completely unaware of how many of the policies he is trying to impose have been tried before, in many times and places around the world, and have failed time and again. Economic equality? That was tried in the 19th century, in communities set up by Robert Owen, the man who coined the term “socialism.” Those communities all collapsed.

It was tried even earlier, in 18th century Georgia, when that was a British colony. People in Georgia ended up fleeing to other colonies, as many other people would vote with their feet in the 20th century, by fleeing many other societies around the world that were established in the name of economic equality.

But who reads history these days?

The Homicidal Aggregation It Is – Today’s Quote

It must really sting to watch the movement of peace, love, and flowers-in-your-hair reveal itself as the homicidal aggregation it is and always has been.

Of Course George Clooney Can Afford To Be A Socialist – Today’s Quote

It’s a very entrepreneurial business.  You have to work very hard to get lucky, mixed with any kind of talent to get a break in this business.   I told Clooney, George, you’re worth $100 million… of course you can afford to be a socialist!

A Revolution Against the Human Soul – Today’s Quote

This war was a revolution against the moral basis of civilization.  It was conceived by the Nazis in conscious contempt for the life, dignity and freedom of individual man and deliberately prosecuted by means of slavery, starvation and the mass destruction of noncombatants’ lives.  It was a revolution against the human soul.

Time Magazine, May 14, 1945

Andrew’s Note:  Time’s comment ‘a revolution against the human soul’ exquisitely describes not only the war that national socialism (NAZI) forced upon the world but also the evils of socialism itself…both the national socialism of the past century and it’s international successor in this. 


Chamber of Big Brother

When did so many of our fellow citizens start expecting ‘Big Brother’ to make the majority of our decisions for us?  I’ve written before about themes from George Orwell’s book 1984 that I see playing out in the world around me.  Now… socialism isn’t anything new, and considering it’s complete and total failure whenever it’s been allowed to run its course you’d think that it would be relegated to the history books…but it continues to rear it’s head in some of the most unlikely places.  One such place it reared up recently was my local Chamber of Commerce…or maybe we should begin calling it the Chamber of Big Brother.

I live and work in a small town.  I didn’t always live here.  I grew up in a good size metropolitan area and traveled the world before settling down here to raise my kids.  One of the ways I went from being an outsider to becoming a ‘local’ was by getting involved in community groups that I shared values with.  One of the first groups I joined after moving to my corner of God’s country was the local Chamber of Commerce.

If you’re not familiar with what a Chamber of Commerce does it’s basically a civic organization that supports the local business community as well as offering networking opportunities among businesspeople, local officials and members of other civic organizations.  I’ve made good friends through my Chamber participation, learned which tradesmen can help me with I’m over my head on a project and worked on a number of civic projects that improve my community.

At a recent Chamber of Commerce leadership meeting we were presented with letter from a community member that both amazed and saddened me.


You Didn’t Save That!

First “You didn’t build that” and now apparently you didn’t save that (or at least it’s not all yours anymore).  Are your savings safe?

There’s value in monitoring what other governments around the world are doing… seeing what other governments do (and attempt) is often the best crystal ball to see what in our own future.  European governments are particularly useful as our crystal ball as we continue to model U.S. governance and tax policies on post war European socialist models.

In a radical departure from previous aid packages, euro zone finance ministers want Cyprus savers to forfeit a portion of their deposits in return for a 10 billion euro ($13 billion) bailout for the island, which has been financially crippled by its exposure to neighboring Greece.

The decision, announced on Saturday morning, stunned Cypriots and caused a run on cash points, most of which were depleted within hours. Electronic transfers were stopped.

The originally proposed levies on deposits are 9.9 percent for those exceeding 100,000 euros and 6.7 percent on anything below that.

Yes… you read that right!  The European Union is asking Cyprus to seize up to 10% of private deposits in Cypriot banks in order to provide yet another European buyout.  Remarkably, the news of the demand led to a bank run which will further damage the Cypriot economy.


Jones on Old Glory – Today’s Quote

The only way this bill will pass is if a hammer and sickle is sewn onto Old Glory.

Andrew’s Note:  I hope Rep Jones didn’t give anyone any ideas….
