I Told You So

with 8 comments

It is finished.

From My post of November 19, 2009:

If you haven’t heard it, the vote for Obamacare with probably be this SaturdayDingy Harry has said the vote will be at 8pm, preceded by 10 hours of debate.
I really wish I could speak my mind, but unfortunately, the Secret Service would be at my door in minutes. All I can say is that these fabian socialist cowards have sold us down the river. I can only imagine that they believe that once they do their dastardly deed, it won’t matter if they lose their jobs or not. It’s like an explorer burning the ship to motivate the troops. It’s a suicide move done in the context that they know they’ve won.
Right now we are facing the most drastic change to our country and economy extant. The government will control 48% of the economy after Saturday. We will be paying for this in advance for 3 years before in takes effect (there is so much wrong with the bill, it would take 10 posts to describe it all), and it will ruin what healthcare most of us do have. Not because they want to give a small percentage of the population healthcare insurance, but because they want people to become accustomed to being on the government dole. Again, they are bribing us with our own money, and we are fools to accept this. This is to create a class of people that are farm animals that will keep the farmers in charge. We are basically done.
The end game of this is to bring our society down to the lowest common denominator and in the end, to create a world where wealth does not exist. Almost everyone will suffer and/or be miserable together, where the ideals of excellence, pride, and self-interest will be no more. We will have become like farm animals producing for the collective. Sure, third world countries will do better than they do now, but it will be at the expense of those of us that have produced, that have risked and succeeded.
I wish I could blame only Obama or even the bunch of democrats in control, but the blame falls with the right as well and all of us. The answer is not the GOP. It never has been. They have been complicit in this debacle and while Rush, Sean and Beck have been wringing their hands (they’ve done little good), they are just the directors of the bread and circus stage right that have made sure to stash enough way to float out what they have left in there years. We will have three choices: Take the blue pill, the red pill or break out. In other words, we can join the collective, continue to play the loyal opposition, or do something meaningful. What do you want to do? At least John Galt had Galt’s Gulch. I don’t see anywhere that free men will be able to go, at least in the context of their end game. Like the old Winston commercial, would you rather fight than switch?
If you think I am being overly melancholy, depressive, dark, cynical, or over the top, ask yourself this question: Would you have thought this possible 3 years ago? Two years ago? Even a year ago? Time to wake up McFly.

America’s One Party System: Big Government

with one comment

H/T Skeptical Eye

From Skeptical Eye:

“The Judge makes a distinction between rights and goods per a question about the “right” to heath care. But any such right would violate someone else’s rights, because you can’t have the right to a good, be it the right to health care or the right to food or clothing, without making a claim on the life of another. Whether that claim is in the form of the theft called taxes (to pay for your “right”) or in the time and services of the supplier of that good (Doctors who must treat you because you have a “right” to their talents in the field of medicine), it is in fact destructive of real rights (the right to the fruits of one’s labor and the right to be free from coercion and slavery), and so cannot be a right itself.”

Ayn Rand said something similar:

“Any alleged “right” of one man, which necessitates the violation
of the rights of another, is not and cannot be a right. No man
can have a right to impose an unchosen obligation, an unrewarded
duty or an involuntary servitude on another man. There can be no
such thing as “the right to enslave”. — Ayn Rand

Or Thomas Jefferson:

“Jefferson believed that each individual has “certain inalienable rights.” That is, these rights exist with or without government; man cannot create, take, or give them away. It is the right of “liberty” on which Jefferson is most notable for expounding. He defines it by saying “rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law,’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.” Hence, for Jefferson, though government cannot create a right to liberty, it can indeed violate it. And the limit of an individual’s rightful liberty is not what law says it is but is simply a matter of stopping short of prohibiting other individuals from having the same liberty. A proper government, for Jefferson, is one that not only prohibits individuals in society from infringing on the liberty of other individuals, but also restrains itself from diminishing individual liberty.”

We’ve gotten very from whence we came. God bless Judge Napolitano.

The Nolan Chart: The Lecture From Glenn Beck

with 2 comments

I took the survey at the Nolan Chart website. I got the address off of Glenn Beck’s website. I was somewhat surprised that I came out so strongly libertarian, as I am pro-life (but my position is a libertarian one).  Many die hard libertine libertarians are pro-abortion, and the only reason I bring that up is that it seems to me there is a sizable demographic in that movement that is just that: Libertine, which is not really libertarian as it does not address responsibility, particularly when their right to do whatever they wish infringes on another’s rights. It’s anarchy to the extreme. I see libertarian as more minarchist, but we are getting away from the message.

Glenn Beck has a video up at Fox News where he lectures us about the political chart to the left here. What I ask is for you to take the quiz and let me know where you stand. You might be surprised.

A retort to the Glenn Beck can be found here.

What Worries Me

leave a comment »

A friend of mine sent me a link the other day to Lew Rockwell’s site, titled Is Obama really preparing for civil war.   The article was pulled, but god bless google for caching everything, right?

Anyway, the night before I had been listening to George Noory on Coast to Coast Am, which used to be The Art Bell Show. Before you start throwing brickbats, let me tell you that George et al cover topics no one else does and even with the tin foil crowd, it’s the most interesting radio out there and you will learn more than listening to Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck or Sean Hannity, but I digress here.

George had a guest on, G. Edward Griffin, who is a very knowledgeable writer and speaker. I highly recommend listing to the podcast and to check out his website. My friend’s email along with the previous show got me thinking and worried. I responded to my friend thusly:

I will tell you this: If anything, he is waiting for a rebellion. There is a difference. Rebellions are conflict that are against something without an end game in sight, often without centralized leadership. In our history, rebellions are put down time after time. We need to be wary of that, as it is a loser out of the box. Even if a rebellion won, then what? In the case of our own revolution, our founders had a very good idea of what they wanted to do, how they wanted to do it, and were willing to discuss it. With rebellion, anarchy follows and some despot that is meet the new boss same as the old boss takes power.

My opinion, if Obama is wary and preparing for anything, it is possible secession. It’s my opinion that he wants to destroy the dollar (money control ed. listen to G. Edward Griffin.) and create a scenario that makes the NAU (North American Union) possible. He will also try to foment a global currency. Without our own currency, we will have given up sovereignty. Even the brits have kept the pound. What will happen is an economic adjustment that will push our worth down.  That will make people very unhappy. The pilot to this is healthcare. Obama et al are doing this inspite of public opinion. They know they have a short amount of time and once done, it’s almost impossible to undo. Basically, they are purposely driving us over the cliff.

The only solution is states rights. Gary who posts at LR is wrong. Redoing the districts for 100K people will do nothing much. The leadership of the states have to step in and say enough and be willing to back it up. Every state has it’s own military. Just like in the 1770’s, it was 13 states that agreed to split. While I am not officially endorsing revolution or secession, I will say with out some sort of united front from states invoking their 10th amendment rights, Obama wins.

That is the short and long of it. Obama et al are in fabian progressive socialist mode. Which is to say, approaching socialism progressively and deliberately. Yes, they know damn well their programs won’t be repealed by future versions of congress, even if the GOP and other parties strike back next november. There’s no precedence for it. My esteemed colleague Chuck Coffer offers the solution of term limits. Good start, but it is down the road and honestly, many pols don’t see it in their best interests to do so anyway. We need to make it so. 

I have posited previously here that states are the key. States have standing in this fight and carry more weight than even a group of individuals, even very large ones. States also have better standing before SCOTUS. While I do not like courts making law, it is fully appropriate for them to knock down laws as unconstitutional and send it back to the legislative branch for fixing. This brings me back to my statement, what worries me. 

What worries me is a populace that would react with rebellion, but also not react at all and capitulate. Both of those are extremes that do not solve any problems. If we come to an impasse of major proportions, then it should be through the states that we act, with full authority of our 10th amendment rights, through non-violent means. This means Tea Party, this means 912ers, this means getting involved with a political party that opposes Obama and his fabian socialists, this means yelling from the rooftops that socialism is coming or unfortunately it is here. It also means getting rid of the scum left in congress and the senate by voting them out next November. If all that fails, then come back to me and we’ll talk some more, but it won’t be about anarchy non-sense or stupid ass rebellions.

Picking up the mantle of a murderer

leave a comment »

As much as this photo shows a caring doctor in medical setting, it is purely for effect from the New York Times, trying to show this murderer as some sort of caring saint.

Dr. Carhart sees the need for late term abortions, and will perform them in the absence of his friend Dr. George R. Tiller.

As someone that was born 12 weeks premature, as a rationalist and as a christian,  I find it repulsive that someone would want to kill a baby that obviously could live on his/her own. I find it repulsive that anyone would want to kill any baby. This guy is no saint and a few of his employees quit when they found out the nature of the expansion of his practice. While I don’t prescribe the fate Dr Tiller got to Dr. Carhart, I do believe abortion should be against the law. No matter what, Dr. Carhart will face the same cosmic justice Dr. Tiller faced at his final exam, and nothing we can do on this earth matches god’s justice.

This is one more example of the out of touch mentality that the left promulgates, even in the evidence that they are not only wrong, but that they are out of step with the majority of Americans. These members of the government sponsored media are fomenting their positions through the government, with Obama at the helm. Think I am wrong? Read this.

Thank you for reading this blog.

The Dems Do It

leave a comment »

Well, the Wicked Witch of New Orleans has done it, along with Blanche “Mama Yokum” Lincoln from Arkansas. Still think I am wrong? I called it before, and even before that.  All the right wing cheerleading for the last 18 months has been for naught. I am sure I will not get one freaking comment from my compatriots of liberty: There is no admitting defeat. Well, it looks like we are going down. Even if we make inroads in 2010 and get the white house back in 2012,  will all of this be repealed? No, it won’t, It never has been, and it won’t start now. Politicians in DC and almost everywhere else like the power they wield, given from us, and expressed with our hard earned money. We put too much faith in these mountebanks on both sides of the isle, and we have suffered the results.

What to do next? Well, some of you will succor to Rush, Glenn or Sean to hear the next talking points and/or inspirational diatribe on what’s next.  More pablum from Mr. potato head and company. Rush will say continue fighting, while he moves to New Zealand, Glenn will tell everyone to stock 6 months of food in their basement and plan to move to Glennbeckistan, and Sean will say he is running in 2012 as the next Reagan, and a poor imitation at that. What these bread and circus directors seem to forget is that we lost on November 4, 2008, not today. We can’t turn the clock back, and our choices are slim. I await commentary from my compatriots in liberty to give me a clue as to what is next. Any takers?

Thank you for reading this blog.
