The Destructive Greed of Socialism vs The Constructive Self-Interests of the Free Market.

Do you trust me? Are you and I friends? Can you honestly say that because I am a Conservative I want to hurt people by denying them, through taxation, a portion of my property, knowledge or services? Would you deny that making people less uncomfortable in their poverty makes them less likely to succeed?

What if I told you that I have facts that would support my conclusion that President “The One” Obama is purposefully creating an economic environment that forces people to become dependent on Big Government by manipulating fuel prices, healthcare, banking and national security?

Well, that’s what he is doing. Higher taxes, higher health costs for business, more regulations on banking, a dramatic decrease in future oil production on federal land, which has led to speculators driving up the price of fuel oil, all contribute to higher costs for basic necessities. This translates to more middle class families slipping into poverty than any time in history.

‘The One’ has a vision of transforming America to a country that has no economic classes only where the rich is transformed into the enlightened and the poor into their disciples. (a modern euphemism for salves)

In order to accomplish this he first must determine which segments of the government he can mostly control without too much interference from the courts, congress and that out of date document; the Constitution. I speculate that the economy, healthcare, defense, entitlements and the election process are his tools of choice to achieve this great society that will forever be attributed to The One. He also needs to build a set of national collations to help him get elected. I speculate, without to much brain power, that teachers, professors, state employees, artists, actors, entertainment producers and directors, the poor and the Hispanics and blacks will align themselves with the give-me-mine mentality of Barack Obama.

The economy can be controlled by regulations, stealthy cloaked by ObamaCare (Health and Human behavior), Dodd/Frank (Banks and Human Behavior) and Cap and Trade (Energy and Human Behavior). Our military can be used to move against domestic terrorist (Tea Partiers, Veterans and Christians) and get rid of his international tyrannical competition, such as Kaddafi, Mubarak and the new comer Assad, all multi multi billionaires that can influence outcomes that are not desirous by The One. The presidential election campaigns can be influenced by kickbacks from his cronies in the form of campaign contribution by his selective bailouts and stimulus initiatives. And none of this would work without the foundation of the entire world-class utopia movement – the United States entitlement scheme.

In the end The One cannot win on his record, or the merits of his political positions. The only way he can win is by divide and conquer with envy and jealousy, demonization and distortions, lies and innuendos, and a great smile, charm and charisma. If he does it will be the final victory for the world wide socialist movement led by a few wealthy intellectuals who think that they can prove history wrong and bring Utopia to the world.

I define Socialism as the epitome of destructive greed as opposed to the invisible hand of the free market, which is the epitome of constructive self-interest.

GOP Mistakes, Social Justice Oxy-morons & Women’s decisions that effect ME.

A Few Names in the News.

I REALIZE there are perfectly decent Republicans who still hold out hope that, through divine or not so divine intervention, Santorum, Gingrich or Paul, will wind up being the GOP nominee. I have no doubt that years ago, they were perfectly decent children who believed in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. So while I hate to destroy anyone’s delusions, I think it is high time that the RNC grew up and faced reality.

For openers, if this primary season has taught us anything, it’s that the GOP needs to address its laundry list of mistakes. One, they should do away with caucuses; if a state doesn’t wish to stage an actual primary for whatever reason, they should just sit it out. Are you listening, Iowa?

Two, let’s put an end to open primaries. Why would Republicans want Democrats helping to decide who our nominee is going to be? Do you really think they have our best interests at heart?

Three, let’s stop putting Iowa and New Hampshire at the head of the parade. In a general election, neither state is all that important, but because they come first, the nation has to focus on them for weeks, even months, at a time. And no more punishing states like Florida and Michigan for wanting to move up the dates of their primaries. Instead, have a start date; say January 15th, and then allow each state to determine when they want to hold their primary. If they all decide on January 16th, so be it. At least we wouldn’t have to drag these things on endlessly.

Finally, assuming all the primaries wouldn’t take place on the same date, candidates who don’t achieve a certain level of support would be excluded from future ballots. As I write this, there have been nearly 30 primaries or caucuses, and thus far Gingrich has won two and Paul, who is making his third run, has once again won none. There is no good reason that they should continue to be regarded as serious candidates, in just the same way that a bunch of wannabes looking to garner some publicity have no business clogging up the debates. I mean, seriously, did anyone, including his daughters, ever really believe that Jon Hunstman was going to be the nominee?

As long as I’m busy making rules, I would like to make a rule that nobody ever again be tried for a hate crime. A crime is a crime, and whether the victim is a black, a Hispanic or a homosexual, should not make the punishment any more severe than if the victim is a WASP. One can safely assume that every crime is hateful to the victim. People who favor concentrating on “hate” rather than “crime” are the same noodle-heads who are unaware that “social justice” is an oxymoron. Justice doesn’t call for adjectives. Once they’re added on, it ceases to be justice, which is why Lady Justice is always pictured blindfolded and why Martin Luther King pleaded for a colorblind society.

Not too long ago, I saw Rosie O’Donnell and Angelica Houston on TV sticking up for Sandra Fluke, and pretending on Obama’s behalf that mandating contraception and abortion for employees of Catholic entities is not actually an infringement on religious freedom, but is all about women’s health.

In their discussion, they parroted the old line about men having no business being involved in women’s reproductive freedom. Even if we ignore the fact that men are fathers, brothers and boyfriends, whose own lives will be greatly affected because of the decisions made by women, by what stretch of the imagination do these two women — one a 50 year old lesbian, the other a 60 year old who has all the reproductive freedom she could possibly want, thanks to Mother Nature — have commenting on things that don’t involve them?

I recently got word that over 50,000 people have been killed in Mexico over the past five years. At about the same time, I learned that Malia Obama had been vacationing in Mexico with some of her school chums.

I must confess it surprised me that her mother, who seems overly concerned that your kids are eating an occasional cupcake, would send her child to a place that makes Kandahar seem as safe as Lincoln’s bedroom.

Then I heard that the kids were accompanied by 15 Secret Service agents! That’s 15 –count them–- 15!

The first thing that occurred to me was that I helped pay for that kid’s vacation.

The second thing that occurred to me was, like mother, like daughter.
