It IS All About the Money

Just as the love of money is the root of all evil, so too, is the hate of money.

Like it or not, money is this realm’s “currency.” It is, at its essence, the means for freedom; freedom to choose whom you will serve.

A poor person, unless introduced to and accepting of God, feels he has no choices in life. His is an existence of mere existence; one fraught with constant worry and peril.

But, through God, all things are possible. The acceptance of God into one’s soul opens one’s eyes to the temporary nature of poverty. If one aspires to be better and educates himself, and works hard to attain money, that person elevates his economic status.

By disdaining wealth, and the very idea of Capitalism, one shackles himself to poverty, and the notion of “Fairness.”

Fairness is a notion that results in the desire to have “good intentions,” instead of “measurable results.”

Wealth is a measuring mechanism. Good Intentions are bricks of self-indulgence that are useless, except to line the road to Hell.

While idolization of money is evil, so, too, is the vilification of money.

God invented money for us to use as a means to have earthly worth and freedom.

The more money you have, the more options you have. The more options you have, the freer you are. The freer you are, the freer you feel to decide whom you will follow.

This may be why Progressives, who publicly eschew money (while idolizing it privately), are so invested in instilling in others the notion that they should gladly enslave themselves to Poverty, or Envy, or Covetousness, in order to be “better” people.

But, these better people end up serving The Other. Why? Because they cannot meet their basic needs. Because they value envy and sloth over independence and industry. And so, they get poorer, and more desperate, and desperate people are so much more susceptible to corruption.

There are over 2300 passages in the Holy Bible about money, and how to steward it.

If money weren’t important to God, it wouldn’t have been created. God also created Free Will: the ability to decide whether to believe in God, or not, and to follow Him, or not.

So, money is an aspect of Free Will. It’s all in how we choose to see it and use it.

So, those among us who decry Capitalism and who extol Socialism serve The Other, not God.

In Defense of the “Rich, Greedy Bastards”

What have the Poor done to deserve a sainted status in this society, while the Wealthy are being demonized by this President and by the Democrat Party at every turn?

The Poor do not start businesses and hire people. The Wealthy do. The Wealthy constitute 1% of our population yet pay 40% of our taxes. The Poor pay nothing.

Being born poor and living that way sucks. I know from personal experience. I also know that working hard, educating oneself, and never giving up can elevate one’s economic status in America. Capitalism enables one to do that. Socialism does not. It just makes everyone equally poorer.

I am sick of hearing Obama trash rich Americans as being heartless and greedy. They are not, as a whole, evil. Just as the poor are not, as a whole, innocent children in need of care-taking by their political masters.

In his ten thousandth speech of the year, responding to the Republicans’ Pledge to America, Obama spouted this little canard:

‎”It is grounded in same worn-out philosophy: cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires; cut the rules for Wall Street and the special interests; and cut the middle class loose to fend for itself. That’s not a prescription for a better future.”

We have to end the race-baiting, the class envy promoted by the Democrat Party. It is destructive and divisive. Tossing the poor scraps in return for their life-long votes is a shameful practice, and is not, contrary to the liberal mantra, “compassion.”

Over seventy years and two thousand plus social programs, and poverty is still here in America. And, under the Democrats complete control of Congress for three years, poverty has risen.

Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid lie incessantly and claim the Democrats have absolutely no responsibility for where we are economically. Bull shit. Are you buying that? Are you fooled by their nonsense?

We must expect and demand a better class of representatives. Because the ones in office are corrupt and are selling us out in return for personal power.

Not only must we vote them out, but we must all engage in self-governance. We the People are the power in this nation. That is why the Tea Party Movement scares the hell out of the liberal media and the Democrat Party. Even the Republican Party has started getting scared. As well they all should be. Their days of taking our money as if it is theirs to spend on buying votes are over.

No more taxation without representation. No more legislation that benefits unions, illegal immigrants, and other special interest groups.

We are on the brink, as a nation, and our posterity is looking to us and asking, “Why? Why didn’t you fight harder? Why have you allowed the thieves and traitors to steal our futures?”

What are you going to tell your great-grandchildren one day?

New Declaration of American Independence

In the face of decades of unmitigated evil perpetrated by our elected officials against The Constitution, the time has come, once again, for We the People to declare our independence from the tyranny of Oppressive Government.

Those elected officials and their minions who seek to rend our freedoms from us have demonstrated no intention to keep their vows to uphold The Constitution. They have also shown a callous disregard for the welfare of all of this nation’s legal citizens. Said elected representatives threaten us now with unsustainable spending and taxation. They also are attempting to dismantle our societal norms and institutions. In short, We the People are on the verge of being forced into tax slavery.

Anti-Constitutional ideologues in political office are attempting to enact their Progressive social philosophy, which has been proven time and again to be detrimental to American society; as well as an abject failure of political thought. Therefore, to our nationally-elected public officials, who have chosen to disregard our opinions and welfare: We formally renounce recognition of you as dutiful, legitimate representatives.

Your actions have spoken clearly and your intentions to betray our trust and your vows have been recognized just as clearly. Henceforth, you will no longer be allowed to feather your nests on the backs of the American People. There will be limits on your terms of service. There will be cuts to the benefits you have bestowed upon yourselves. You consider yourselves a protected and ennobled class, but you are mistaken. No one in America is better than anyone else. You are not aristocrats. You are not above the law. Your reign is over.

To the entrenched in Washington, D.C., members of both Parties that think We the People will continue to abide your manipulation: You, too, are also on notice. Those wealthy powers you serve will no longer be allowed to control, impoverish, and enslave us. We reject any form of tyranny from any source. We are free people with God-given rights that will no longer be infringed upon in the name of Progressivism or a New World Order.

We the People invoke the guidance of our Founding Fathers, and do hereby declare our intention to fight, if need be, against the vast, amoral cesspool that is Washington, D.C. We will use every weapon in our arsenal to cast off the yoke of your corruption. Come 2010, we will sweep as many of you from power as we are able. In 2012, we will rid ourselves of this anti-American Administration. If, after all this, you choose to continue to wage war against We the People, we will fight back. And, with our numbers reaching up into the hundreds of millions, you do not stand a chance of succeeding.

You will not be allowed to diminish the Sovereignty of the United States of America. You will not be allowed to open our borders to any more of those who refuse to assimilate and improve this country. You will not be allowed to force citizens to fund immoral and unconstitutional nationalized programs. In fact, we will disband agencies and repeal policies that do not demonstrate complete fidelity to the betterment of this country, and which do not operate in a cost-effective manner.

We are not your slaves. We are not cogs in a Big Government machine. Neither are we “Citizens of the World.” We are Americans. And we will not go under. We will fight and die to remain free. While you have chosen to renounce God and his blessings on our great nation, we proudly declare ourselves His children. We will return the Lord to his rightful place as moral center of our Society. We will no longer remain silent against the militant atheism that works in tandem with Progressivism to destroy America and the World.

Heed our warning: You started this war. We will end it. We will purge the evil influences of Progressivism from the soul of the body politic and reinstate patriotism and morality as cornerstones to the archways of our freedom. Abuses against the greater society by anti-American groups that constitute the minority of the population will no longer be ignored.

Individualism will ever remain integral to our society. However, we will vociferously challenge the legal and cultural perversions of our basic tenets by any minority, under any guise. This is America. Home of the Brave and Land of the Free. Not, Cradle of the Dependent and Grave of the Enslaved. Through faith and lawful endeavors, we will be free once more. We will be great again. And, we will not fail.

This is our Declaration.

When Obama Attacks “The Rich,” He Attacks America

President Obama is every bit the socialist I feared. His incessant threats to tax the rich into oblivion are just the first steps toward destroying our economic system and replacing it with the failed philosophy of Socialism. His use of class warfare rhetoric is intended to provoke a populist movement against capitalism by first pinning the blame for our current financial distress on “the greedy Wall Streeters and the Rich.”

Aren’t the majority of Democrats in office also rich? So, shouldn’t we be blaming them, as well? In fact, there should be calls by Republicans for investigations into Frank, Dodd, and other Democrats who obstructed oversight of Fannie Mae. Wall Street alone didn’t cause our woes. The blame can be pinned almost entirely on corruptocrats in Congress for creating and forcing economically-unsound policies on our bank industry.

Now, when Obama attacks the rich in America, he is really attacking America itself.  He is attacking capitalism. He is intent on perpetuating the biggest assault on our freedoms under the guise of social justice.

Yet, what justice is there in robbing a person of what he has worked hard to attain? What justice is there in denying the unborn their right to life? What justice is there in destroying the greatest country that has ever existed? Obama, following his Black Liberation Theology principles, seems to believe America MUST make reparations and redistribute wealth in order to make up for the scourge of slavery.

Well, Mr. President, aren’t you enslaving future generations in order to make your unamerican aspirations a reality? There is no justice when you grant one group special privileges by denying basic, Constitutional rights from another group. I think we have learned that over the past two hundred years. It is becoming apparent that the President and the Congressional Democrats are intent on passing extreme liberal legislation in order to remain in control indefinitely.

I fear any group that intent on acquiring and retaining power. All Americans should fear the current hoard of liberal-socialists in office. They view themselves as elected-for-life aristocracy.

These politicians have absolutely no shame in destroying fellow Americans. That is what they seek to do. But, they seek to destroy only rich, CONSERVATIVE Americans. Democrats are already attempting to find a covert way to silence Conservative speech. Soon, they intend on heaping tax upon tax upon Conservatives. Meanwhile, Democrats will devise ways to avoid abiding by the very same rules they want to force the rest of us to live by. Middle-Class citizens will soon find that Obama’s foolish and irresponsible policies and budgets will bankrupt America into a second- or third-rate nation.

We must stop these traitors. And, make no mistake. That is exactly what they are.

Will we allow a man of dubious birthright to destroy our country? I pray we don’t. He and his treacherous enablers have only their own interests at heart. They must be removed. Every last damned one of them.

If Capitalism is “Dead,” Then So is America

It boggles the mind how liberals are making political hay of the current financial meltdown; especially considering it was they who are primarily responsible for it. Over the past two weeks, they have been actively promoting the idea that it was the practice of free-market capitalism that resulted in this debacle. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi even had the unmitigated gall to proclaim, “We bear no responsibility for it.” Nothing could be further from the truth.

Governmental intervention by the Democrats, and their implementation of coercive regulations are responsible. So, too, is the rampant corruption within and without the GSE agencies involved. Chris Dodd, Barney Frank are the most responsible; for their lies and corruption prevented any oversight that could have prevented this meltdown. Republicans for years have called for oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac. Yet, it was the Democrats who prevented it. Now, they blame the President.

It was not the “failed policies of George Bush,” but rather the failed policies of liberal-socialism that resulted in the biggest world-wide economic disaster since the Great Depression. Period. Left alone, the market would be humming along just fine, as it has for over two hundreds years.

Frankly, it is shocking that ANY American would gleefully tout the end of capitalism. It is the economic system that has enabled generations of Americans and immigrants to work hard and find success. It enables social mobility and the realization of our rights as free people to achieve, succeed, and be rewarded for our efforts. In short, capitalism is intrinsically tied to our prosperity as a nation and the continued survival of The Constitution.

Any American who seeks the death of capitalism, seeks the death of this country. Socialism is a failed philosophy. It has been for hundreds of years. Yet, misguided groups and individuals continue to promote it as the panacea to the world’s ills. Whether it is naivete, arrogance, or complete disassociation with reality, proponents of socialism are a threat to any free society.

Socialism degrades the human spirit by making the individual subordinate to the State. The State becomes the source of power in society, not the People. This is so fundamentally counter to the precepts of The Constitution, that it is not outrageous to say that socialists are un-American subversives. Ironically, they claim to want to uphold The Constitution, yet their very actions and words belie that claim.

As a patriotic citizen of this, the greatest society that has ever existed, I refuse to accept the revolting claims of Congressional Democrats, who are pushing the “This is the end of Capitalism” meme. Such traitors should be tossed out of office immediately.

Unfortunately, these subversives have indoctrinated generations of Americans into believing they must be dependent on the State in order to survive. We have much work to do.

Though socialists have drained the American Spirit from almost half of our population, we can counter the rhetoric. We can develop entertainment and media that promotes American Values and encourages freedom. We can take a solid stand against those who would separate us from our rights and property. We can fight.

Freedom is not free, nor is it lasting. It is as ephemeral as smoke wafting from the extinguished torch of liberty. Now is the time to stoke the flames and fight against the corruption of our country by members of both parties. America the Beautiful is begging us to save Her.

Will we?
