As I encounter people from time to time they refer to me as a Republican and my immediate response is to correct them by saying…”I am a rock solid Conservative who tends to vote Republican because their political ideologically of government is closer to mine than any other party.”
With that said, it is an ideologically of government that follows the Constitution of smaller government and limited Federal power. Is there any doubt in anyone’s mind that what we see today in Washington is the exact opposite of what the Founding Fathers had in mind. Not only has Washington taken have taken it upon themselves to usurp the rights of all individuals and assumed that they know better for us and our children and therefore can dictate every aspect of our lives… to the cars we drive, to the light bulbs we use and the toilets that they have mandated that don’t work.
With that said, I have only one exception to my rule of keeping Washington’s nose out of my business. They are more than welcome to put their nose in my toilet and see why the damn thing doesn’t work.
With that said, in my other life that puts food on my table I have had to dealt with government bureaucrats on the national level including the EPA and the Army Corp of Engineers to the littlest fiefdoms of small town tyrants. If there is one thing that I learned on my travels through life is that incompetence naturally gravitates to government service because most of these misfits could not succeed in private industry.
With that said, as I watch in horror full well knowing that by the time I finish writing this Washington will have spent another $4 billion dollars before lunch time. On what? I have no idea and neither do they. Is it any wonder why the country has a debt problem?
With that said, some moron once dubbed a phase … “There are Two America’s”. There most certainly is. One is composed of every day hard working citizens who pay their taxes and feed the monstrosity that we call Washington. The other America is a greed full place composed of power hunger maggots hell bent on keeping that power at any cost. They deem themselves as Lord and Master and the rest of us as useful serfs. When serfs become useless, they become expendable. A serf becomes useless and expendable the day he retires and applies for his Medicare Card and Social Security. In the old days we eliminated useless people by firing squads, today we use death panels.
With that said, I have asked myself over the years, how have We the People allowed this to happen? The answer to my question can be many fold because the numbers are certainly in our favor, there are 300 million serfs vs. 535 strong arm bandits and their army of a couple of million bureaucrats that live on the dole.
The only way I can make any sense of this is most Americans are busy with their daily lives and find politics to be a disgusting business. Disgusting it is, but by avoiding it leads to uninformed decisions that has brought on this fiscal mess. These are dire times for the country and the right and the left are oceans apart on what is the proper course to take.
With that said, the disgusting business of politics is built around falsehood, misleading statements and deceit. As an example when Washington uses the term …”cuts” in the budget most people take that to mean spending cuts in real dollars but what it really means is in Washington is “reduced spending increase”. The art deception that Washington practices is equal to none other.
With that said, Now I am not one who sees a commie behind every tree in the forest but I do see a leftist media agenda from most paper publications and news channels. They have dutiful filled their obligation of keeping the American Public uninformed and have abandoned their sole purpose in life of accurately reporting the news. This adds to the confusion of the serfs but of course that is exactly what the left depends upon…”Uninformed Voters.”
The media today thrives on a game called …”I Gotha yea”, they deal in petty statements and slips of the tongue. Do we really care who takes a Tylenol for headache? or scare tactics like they going to take Grandma’s Social Security away.
Even our Presidential debates have been lowered to the most common dominator.
What we really care about is how we are going to pay our debt bomb, our National Security and our economy from an overbearing Federal government. What has happened to this economy is direct failure of government and most Americans are concerned that their life savings are being reduced to meaningless dollars. These are the type questions that need answers, not … “will you be submissive to your husband?”
Under what pretext do these people think that they should be reelected? I cannot think of one.
With that said, Yes there are two America’s, there is a cultural in Washington that lives in a bubble built around maintaining power at all costs and a media elite who strive on the social register that sees the rest of America as necessary outcasts who perform the daily tasks regulated to serfdom. The task is to keep them barefoot and dumb.
“You can’t conquer a free man.”
When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, “This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,” the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything — you can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him. — Robert A. Heinlein
