The No. 1 issue for 2022 and 2024 is very simple. Big Government Socialism isn’t working.
Go to your local gas station and ask folks filling up their gas tanks if they think things are working. Go to the grocery store and watch people coping with the rising cost of food and ask if they think things are working. Go to small businesses whose shipments are still hung up on container ships anchored off Long Beach and ask them if they think things are working.
Ask people if things are working when the man who burned down the Christmas tree outside Fox News in New York City (causing $600,000 in damage) is released from jail without bail. He was back on the street before the paperwork for his arrest was finished.
When 80 people break into a Nordstrom just outside San Francisco and steal as much as they can carry, Americans know that things just are not working.
On issue after issue, and problem after problem, it is clear to most Americans that Big Government Socialism simply is not working. (And a recent Scott Rasmussen National Survey found 53 percent of Americans describe the Biden administration agenda as Big Government Socialism.)
Through the American Majority Project, we captured all this in a brief video, which you can watch and share with your friends around the country. It is important to tie the continuing failures all around us to the underlying philosophy of Big Government Socialism, which simply does not work.
The Biden administration and the Democrats in Congress are committed to the most radical experiment in imposing government on Americans since the British failed to coerce free Americans in the period from 1770 to 1783.
Big Government Socialism seeks to control our bodies through vaccination and mask mandates while controlling our minds through radical indoctrination in schools, businesses, and government offices.
It isn’t enough to study and get good grades and real knowledge. You must learn the left-wing language and attitude. It isn’t enough to generate a profit as an effective worker. You must learn the official propaganda. It isn’t enough to be an effective soldier, sailor, airmen, marine, coast guardsmen, or space force guardian. Being a woke Department of Defense is now more important than being a war-winning Department of Defense.
This passion for total control fits the warnings of Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World,” George Orwell’s “1984” and “Animal Farm,” and Friedrich Hayek’s “The Road to Serfdom.”
We have seen this kind of radical effort to remake society before—from the Jacobins of the French Revolution, the Russian Communist effort to create the New Soviet Man, and the thought control of Maoist China (which is still underway with Xi Jinping as the new Mao). Again and again, radical belief systems have tried to force people into a government-imposed version of reality.
The impossibility of the thought processes of Big Government Socialism can be best understood through two Walt Disney movies.
The inability to deal with violence—whether from criminals, terrorists, or nation states—can be compared to someone who sees “The Lion King” and thinks it is a documentary. They believe lions and zebras like each other and sing and dance together. Why not release murderers, rapists, robbers, and others back into the population? Why not recognize and speak well of the Taliban and other terrorists? Why not tolerate the aggression of communist China, Vladimir Putin’s Russia, the Iranian Mullahs, or the dictatorship of Kim Jong-un? They are committed to the Big Government Socialist worldview, why be mean to them?
The inability to design an effective economic policy of opportunity for all stems from the Big Government Socialists’ failure to understand the 1934 film “The Grasshopper and the Ants,” which is based on the Aesop fable that describes two different approaches to life.
The ants work constantly during the warm pleasant days of summer storing up food and preparing for the winter, which they know is coming. The grasshopper enjoys life, thinks all the hard work is a stupid waste of time, and makes fun of the ants, singing, “The world owes us a live’n” and telling the ants, “You shouldn’t soil your Sunday pants like those other foolish ants. Come on let’s play, and sing, and dance.”
As winter approaches, the grasshopper faces starvation while the ants are comfortably surviving the cold in a warm place filled with food. Only the ants’ generosity saves the grasshopper from starving to death. By the end, he’s singing a different tune: “I owe the world a live’n.”
Big Government Socialists share the grasshopper’s disdain for work and favor policies which encourage dependency, indolence, and redistribution. If you don’t want to study and succeed in school, the Big Government Socialists will simply abolish grades, so you don’t feel bad. If you work hard and save, the Big Government Socialists will take your money to give it to others who have learned to be dependent on government. If you have been diligent and acquired some property, the Big Government Socialists will tolerate criminals who steal your hard-earned goods or vandalize your home or business. Under Big Government Socialism, there will eventually be no ants to feed the grasshoppers. Or, as Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said, “the problem with Socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
A Big Government Socialist, Lion King-grasshopper ideology is impossible in the real world. It just doesn’t work.
President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Leader Chuck Schumer are giving us a wonderful opportunity to win gigantic election victories in 2022 and 2024. But much more importantly, they are proving to every American that Big Government Socialism just doesn’t work.
This video is a step toward winning that argument and getting America back on a track of success, safety, prosperity, and freedom.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
