The ascendancy of comrade Cortez will see a true debate between Economic Liberty and Socialistic Slavery – so we want the Left to keep her around.
In this day and age it’s hard to believe that anyone would still consider collectivism to be a viable governmental system. But once again the nation’s Left is going full socialist with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Never mind that these ideas are over 500 years old. [First expressed in the book ‘Utopia’ published in 1516 ] Or that we’re coming up on the Bicentennial of it’s first ‘Official’ failure [ New Harmony Indiana, 1825 –1827, first use of the word Socialism]
For the delusional Left, it’s a perfectly functional system because it works in places that aren’t actually socialist. This according the utterances of that paragon of intellectual thought, Joy Behar. Apparently, she thinks it works in the Scandinavian countries of “Sweden. Copenhagen.. Denmark Norway. Iceland.” These being small and culturally homogenous that can afford to fund massive welfare systems because the US taxpayers foot the bill for their defense. Not to mention natural resources that can help monetize these system without putting the bite on their citizens. Well, the Left never lets the truth get in the way of their big lies, so why should this be any different?
The perfect opportunity to show the inferiority of Socialistic Slavery.
Now that they’ve gone full collectivist we can finally have that conversation over which system is superior. Better yet, which system actually works and which has been a complete failure. The history of Socialistic Slavery is one of 2 centuries of failure to the tune of over 100 million dead. That system is inevitably doomed since it defies logic and human nature. It’s a basic psychological fact that punishment will decrease a behaviour while rewards will increase a behaviour. Never mind that Leftist denials that taking someone’s property is a punishment or that it’s somehow collectively owned by society or some other such nonsense, it can never work no matter what you call it.
As Andrew Klavan has stated, the taking of someone’s hard earned property is in actuality taking their time and labour – a part of their life – that is called slavery. That is the fundamental flaw of socialism, that if one’s property is under claim by the government, there is no incentive to produce more and the system falls apart. It does not matter if someone tries to couch it as “Social Justice” or whatever, as Margaret Thatcher once observed, eventually you run out of other people’s money.
This also means that the powers that be will eventually have to crack down on those unwilling to live as slaves. Force will have to be applied to coerce the populace to produce so that it can be stolen and redistributed to buy loyalty. It also means that the people have to be ‘convinced’ that their best form of protection is to not have any.
We all have to play along so the national socialist Left keeps Comrade Cortez as their standard-bearer.
Now that she’s the face of the Left’s socialist national agenda, we need to play along in their little revolutionary terror drama whereby we’re supposed to be afraid of her and her little band of Reds. The comparisons are being made and the debates are being initiated putting the Left’s base ideology in the limelight, illustrating it’s rank inferiority. But just for fun, why not speculate for a moment on what the Left wanted to be our reaction to the sudden emergence of yet another socialist on the national stage.
A spectre is haunting the States — the spectre of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a women with ideas that were new 5 Centuries ago. One can almost feel the fear, palpable as though it were a physical entity, striking terror into anyone who values Liberty. A nightmarish apparition haunting our dreams of keeping our guns and right of free-speech. Everyone stunned into silence by the unexpected emergence of the girl from the Bronx, Cheered on by a national socialist media that hitherto has never favoured one side or the other.
No one dare speak that which is unspoken, that these 500-year-old cutting edge ideas of socialism are inconceivable to behold. Their revolutionary import is too monstrous to contemplate. For no one has yet hit on the idea taxing people into the stone age to buy votes, the idea being incredibly inconceivable. We on the Pro-Liberty Right are shaking in our flats at the absolutely horrid idea that we will finally be taxed to pay our fair share.
We all sit huddled in our Billion dollar mansions fearing the day when equality will knock on the door and fairness will make sure the wealth goes to where it belongs – millennials who can no longer afford $13 Lattes or a PhD in the multidimensional mechanics of gender fluidity. No more will we be given that which we’ve earned, keeping the property we own, for it’s the people’s money now.
Our True Reaction* to the Left drop kicking the mask and going full Socialist.
[*Yes, they love that word for some reason, as though coming across ideas that have been repeated a thousand times over the several centuries is akin to Dracula seeing a cross for the first time.]
At first it was jubilation that the nation’s Left has at last admitted to which has been obvious for several decades – that they are dyed in the wool socialists.
With their coming out of the authoritarian closet we can finally compare their inferior Marxist theories mired in failure with something that actually works: Economic Liberty. The discussion beginning with how they are going to pay for all the free-stuff that is going to be handed out.
Not that they didn’t begin tiptoeing out of Stalin’s work-center a few months ago with their massive demands for gun confiscation during the Marx .. Oops.. ‘March for our lives’ demonstrations. But very much like the Mao Tse-tung’s Phase III Guerrilla warfare tactic of coming out to fight in the open, the Left has finally committed itself to pushing it’s woefully substandard ideas. In the past they’ve played the game of yes, we’re socialist.. no we’re not to keep from having to defend the blood soaked past of their horrid ideology of mass murder and oppression. But now with the elevation of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that’s all on the table. Its only now that some on the Left are realising their colossal mistake, with many recoiling at a system of governmental slavery of epic proportions.
However, something happened on the way to the donning of Che Cortez T-shirts. It became readily apparent that Comrade Cortez wasn’t ready for prime-time. She began – and continues to do so making absurd statements on the subjects of her graduate degree – economics and international relations.
Her latest being a cringe inducing video of her trying to explain how she’s going to pay for all of her largess, taking into consideration that we’re at least $21 trillion in the hole. So now the worry is that the debate that will finally bury socialism in the vault of economic logic won’t take place. This is why we need to act as though we are terrified of this woman and her 500-year-old ideas. Remember, we’re supposed to be afraid of her while we are really urging her on. The debate over the insane ideas of Socialistic-Slavery are beginning, with a disastrous fallout for the Left to be the result. This is exactly what we want, but don’t tell anyone.
Ken Ham on how science confirms the Bible
One of my biggest pet peeves is the attempt by atheists to use “science” to disprove the Bible. It’s unfortunate on many levels, not the least of which being Pascal’s Wager, but the strangest part is how much of science must be ignored in order to make the claim a Biblical worldview runs counter to modern science.
Some may object to this topic being part of mostly political news site, but it’s been more widely covered in recent years by liberal sites attempting to paint the Biblical worldview in a negative light, so it’s good to give equal time to the counterarguments.
There are better videos than Ken Ham’s discussion on the topic, but few are more easily understood. It’s well worth the hour.
Bettie Cook Scott is a racist politician. And she’s a Democrat.
Racism is owned by the Republican Party. That’s the narrative the press and their handlers, the Democratic Party, wants America to believe. Someone forgot to get that memo to Michigan state representative Bettie Cook Scott.
More than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).
Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”
There are two important takeaways here. First is the hypocrisy surrounding Scott, a (formerly) rising star in the Michigan Democratic Party. If the comments she made were spoken by anyone other than a Democrat, the calls wouldn’t be for an apology. The press and social groups would be calling for her to step down and jump into a hole somewhere.
The second point is that in the real world, the one not seen through the lens of liberals and the media, racism exists everywhere. It is not owned by Republicans, conservatives, old people, white people, or any other classification. One can even make a valid argument that it’s no more prominent in the Republican Party than it is in the Democratic Party that supports groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Racism must be eliminated from society. That will never happen as long as so many people naively believe it only exists in the minds of certain people on the political right. It exists everywhere. Accept that and we can work to make it stop.
Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty – Part II
Leftists incessantly issue lists of demands for the restriction of Liberty, It’s time to reverse the trend towards freedom.
This is our second part of our series of what we on the Pro-Liberty Right want for the preservation of Liberty. Part I is here.
6. The Left needs to stop trying to control private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. [aka ‘enhanced’ or ‘Universal’]
If there is one constant in the Liberty grabber universe, it’s that half of them are incessantly calling for gun confiscation while the rest deny they are calling for gun confiscation. They also love to parrot the line that it would be impossible to round-up everyone’s guns as a way of deflecting the issue. Except that those on the Pro-liberty side thought the same thing in the UK and Australia. Their Liberty grabber nightmare began with gun registration, under the solemn promise that it wouldn’t lead to gun confiscation. [Sound familiar?] Then of course at the next occasion of a serious crisis, this registration data was used for gun confiscation.
The fact is gun confiscation takes several precursor steps, the most critical being the assertion of government control over private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. Curiously enough, the Liberty grabbers tend to want language inserted into these laws mandating the reportage of lost or stolen firearms. Those types of rules are of primary importance only if the point of these measures is to turn them into a registration scheme.
7. The Liberty Grabber Left needs to stop pushing for even more controls on freedom.
It is also axiomatic that Leftists will exploit any opportunity to start ever-expansive controls over Liberty. The Left is a virtual fountainhead of new and more creative ways of clamping down on freedom. Having run out of new and improved ways of making it difficult, embarrassing and expensive to buy a firearm [While also lying about it at the same time] the Left has moved on to imposing controls over the purchase of ammunition. Then of course they also are making demands on how these are stored.
8. Stop attacking those who only wish to defend themselves.
There is nothing more loathsome than Leftists who excel at hurling insults at the country’s estimated 150 Million innocent gun owners. We’ve been labelled with almost everything from being Terrorists to baby killers for wanting nothing more than to be able to defend our families and ourselves.
Those who incessantly work overtime to demonize the innocent should keep one word in mind: Deterrence. The widespread ownership of weapons in most areas deters criminals since they don’t know who can fight back. This also explains why places with tight controls on Liberty tend to have higher crime rates. Curiously enough, for people who love the term ‘Commonsense’ they certainly don’t seem to well versed in it.
9. The Left needs to become educated about that which they want to control.
Granted, it might be too much to expect the Liberty Grabbers from knowing the difference between a direct impingement and gas piston actuation, but they should at least know the difference between a semi-auto and select fire. Nothing screams uninformed more than someone who confuses a clip with a magazine or some who uses them interchangeably in a claim that one can fire off 30 rounds in half a second.
Lack of knowedge is usually a negative in most cases, but in the realm of Liberty Control, the Leftists wear it as a badge of honour.
10. The Left needs to stop lying about guns.
We made these two separate items to prove a point. While some gaffes of the Liberty grabber elite are relatively harmless, there are those that are a danger to Liberty. It should go without saying that we live in an age in which the knowledge of the world is literally at one’s fingertips. There is no rational excuse for a lack of knowledge on the most rudimentary aspects of certain subjects. By the same token, there is no excuse for the propagation of deliberate false impressions and Lies particularly on the subject of self-defense.
One of the most infamous examples stems from the creation the phrase “Assault Weapon”:
The weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons—anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun—can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.
The nation’s Left has gone on for years demanding compromises on the part of the Pro-Liberty Right. It is time that they step up to the plate and show they can be ‘bi-partisan’ for once. These steps aren’t really that extraordinary, in fact they merely bolster Liberty. Some Leftists still purport to be Liberal, supporting these items would go a long way in showing that is truly the case.
