New Years Resolutions

Well, it’s about that time when people start thinking about new years resolutions, such as to resolving to Smile More and Complain less…

So, in that spirit …

For the President: Please stop getting into petty fights with leftists on twitter.

Mr. President, Twitter can be a double edged sword at times – a way to be instantly in touch with constituents, and a way to get off track in petty battles over irrelevant subjects. You need to show some restraint in picking your battles and perhaps have another pair of eyes to be sure of what is being disseminated. You have a powerful weapon of mass communication in social media. However, you need to be mindful that the backlash from inadvertent slip-ups can be devastating.

For the Conservative-Right: Resolve to stop complimenting Leftists with the term ‘Liberal’.

We all know that it’s hard to kick a bad habit and easy to confuse the terms ‘Leftist’ and ‘Liberal’. Nevertheless, we must be mindful that these terms signify two entirely different and antithetical concepts.  Besides that, Leftists love the deception having their authoritarian designs labelled as “Liberalism’.

Leftists are advocates of Collective rights – Socialism, Marxism, etc. while Liberals [from the same root word as Liberty] are by definition, advocates of individual rights and freedoms. At it’s core, Socialism is the subjugation of the individual to the collective and anathema to personal freedom and Liberty. Liberal implies a support of liberty, but if they advocate the economic slavery of socialism, that isn’t the case.

There is a silent split taking place in the formally unified Leftist sphere. Search on YouTube for “Leaving the Left” and you will see there is a whole series of videos on ‘Leaving the Left’ , including one from Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report ‘The Left is No Longer Liberal.’

So, how does one distinguish between the two?

If someone advocates for the collective rights of socialism, they are Leftist. If someone advocates for individual liberty and free trade, they are Liberal. [‘Classic Liberal’ in the vernacular – perhaps it is time to reclaim the original word…]

For the Socialist-Left: Resolve to give up on Gun Confiscation.

We are all well aware that this is your obsession and the lynch pin in depriving the people of their Liberty. Never the less, you people should realise that it’s just not going to happen.

We also know that you are working tirelessly day and night to chip away at out common sense civil rights. Everything from incremental steps like Intergalactic Background Checks and registration to ‘hail Mary’ attempts with the banning of undefined ‘assault weapons’.

This is why we resist (how’s that for a word) your efforts to use every ‘serious crisis’ and falsely pretend gun are unregulated and need something – anything – to clamp down on those who are innocent.

And for everyone else: Resolve to go back to the logical colours for two political sides – Red for the Socialist-Left and Blue for the Conservative-Right.

For years the common held designation had the Left as Red and the Right as Blue, then back during the year 2000 election some folks decided to turn things upside down. Well, now is the time to change them back to their rational form. Even the New York Times has acknowledged this with it’s “Red Century” series, and this would just be common sense to all involved.

When Republicans Were Blue and Democrats Were Red

https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/when-republicans-were-blue-and-democrats-were-red-104176297/But not everyone liked the shift. Republican operative Clark Bensen wrote an analysis in 2004 titled “RED STATE BLUES: Did I Miss That Memo?”

“There are two general reasons why blue for Republican and Red for Democrat make the most sense: connotation and practice,” Bensen wrote. “First, there has been a generally understood meaning to the two colors inasmuch as they relate to politics. That is, the cooler color blue more closely represented the rational thinker and cold-hearted and the hotter red more closely represented the passionate and hot-blooded. This would translate into blue for Republicans and red for Democrats. Put another way, red was also the color most associated with socialism and the party of the Democrats was clearly the more socialistic of the two major parties.

“The second reason why blue for Republicans makes sense is that traditional political mapmakers have used blue for the modern-day Republicans, and the Federalists before that, throughout the 20th century. Perhaps this was a holdover from the days of the Civil War when the predominantly Republican North was ‘Blue’.”

Differential equations teaches us that one can use the initial conditions of the present to extrapolate events in the near term balanced with the knowledge of the past. The interaction of technological advances and the march of history is fascinating. History can inform those willing to listen as to what will happen in the future because the laws of human natural are as immutable as the elegant equations of Newtonian physics.
