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.

On Being a Committed Moderate

There is a culture war going on in America, and too many misguided Americans are stuck on “moderate.”

The Radical Left has secretly been at war with America since the Nineteen-Twenties. Since the Nineteen-Sixties, It has been waging an all-out guerrilla war on American Values and institutions. The very same hippies  and commies and subversives who have been waging this anti-American culture war now sit in positions of power throughout our media and government. They have been sneaky about their intentions for Americans; and so far, they have been very successful in enacting their agenda.

In fact, over the past year, the hippies and commies and subversives have come right out and told everyone they are hippies and commies and subversives. But, Everyday Americans are not listening. And, don’t understand why they should even be concerned.

This has been made possible by the cunning propagandists in the media who push the notion that being compliant is being middle-of-the-road. Consequently, Everyday Americans have bought into the foolish notion of “Moderation.”

Being a Moderate sounds sexy to the politically-ignorant. It gives them a sense of still being in-the-know, when in reality, they don’t know anything. Adopting a “moderate” stance affords people who cannot be bothered to learn about their rights, about the Constitution, and about the Enemy Within, the intellectual Kevlar to continue to be politically-ignorant. And, that is why being a committed Moderate is tantamount to being a committed fool.

Contrary to what the liberal media claims, there is nothing courageous about not taking a stand. There is no nobility in thinking you can be intellectually- and morally-superior by letting other citizens do the heavy lifting so that your freedoms are protected against an ever-growing government. Nor is it the height of civic participation to vote “Present” on crucial, culture-defining issues like Abortion, and Freedom of Speech, and Freedom of Religion, and the Individual Right to Bear Arms.

To be a committed Moderate is to relinquish moral authority on what it means to be an American. Moderates do not want to be hampered by having to have convictions and principles. Thus, they remain the easily-manipulated Chess pieces that they are:  lowly Pawns. Moderates are no more than Pawns in the strategic culture war that is raging. Pawns get used. Pawns get sacrificed. Pawns are expendable.

There is an increase in pride among those who self-identify as Moderates. They seem to think that the “extremists” who are battling for the heart and soul of America, the Tea Party Patriots and the Big Government Statists (Communists), are simply partisan crazies whose efforts and principles don’t reflect Mainstream American principles. They couldn’t be more wrong.

After decades of Communist indoctrination through our school systems, far too many Americans now believe that Reliance on Mother Government is an American Value. Too many of them eschew the notion of American Exceptionalism. Such Americans do not have pride in their nation. Apparently, the Radical Left has won some battles. It has succeeded in converting 20% of American citizens into thinking like communists.

Recently, the nascent Tea Party Movement proves that a great many Americans still do believe in Traditional American Values. We are fighting back against the Radical Left, and the Radical Left doesn’t like that one bit. So, it is attempting to enlist the Pawns who straddle the political fence- the Moderates. The “No Labelers.” The Fools.

As disheartening as it is to have a large portion of the populace buy into the notion that being a Moderate is being “an Average American,” it is the reality that Conservatives must accept. The battle for the hearts and minds of Americans lies in educating Moderates about the cunning of the Enemy Within. And, certainly, radical leftists are the enemy within.

Socialism must be exposed for the dirty word that it is. It has no place in America. If we prevent future Americans from accepting the premise that Socialism is an acceptable political ideology for America, then we can ultimately defeat the hippies and commies and subversives.

For now, we have to work to make “moderation” the dirty word that it has become.  Because the Radical Left has already started to contort the term from being one of a position of indifference, to a position of  honor. There is no honor in being a pawn. And a citizen without honor is not an American.

We must restore Honor in America.

It is Liberalism That Will Eventually Fail

All this talk of “Conservatism will fail” is just so much self-delusion on the part of liberals. Conservatism will not fail. Liberalism will.

Conservatives have these pesky things called, “values.” They are called values because they are PRINCIPLES WE VALUE. As such, we are more than willing to die for our values, if need be. Are liberals?

Eco-terrorists and moonbat animal rights activists talk a big game, but are they really willing to die for a ficus or a rat?

Liberals are all talk and little substance. They rely on lies and on other people’s money to enact what no sane individual would otherwise enact. Extreme leftists invariably cover their faces and strike targets from a distance (usually under cloak of night). So, I cannot imagine they have the courage of their convictions to die for what they believe in.

How many liberals have you ever heard proclaim, “I will die for this country and our Constitution?”

Exactly.

Conservatism will only get stronger the longer leftists continue to savage our country. And, there will come a time when Conservatives will get so fed up that they will surprise the everliving hell out of liberals by treating them the way liberals have been treating the rest of us for decades: as the enemy.

You can only push rational people so far with insane policies before they finally stand together and do what must be done. And believe me, that point is coming soon.

The “War on Poverty” is the liberals’ Viet Nam. It is a quagmire from which they have yet to emerge with any credibility. Decades have passed and BILLIONS of dollars have been redistributed to the poor, and STILL the War on Poverty is not over. And, why is this?

Because liberals have no intention of winning this war. Nor any other war.

They aren’t about eliminating poverty; but instead, they are about gaining control over the rest of us. That is all they seek to do. Their every policy proves this. The bad news for them is: This is America. We have the Constitution. We don’t take kindly to being controlled; especially by hand-wringing weaklings who aren’t willing to die for their country.

The day will come, after food shortages have started and utilities fail, and chaos is rampant on the streets (all caused by liberal policies), when liberals will find themselves in very dire straits. Will they have the wherewithal to band together, fight for one another, and establish strongholds of safety and law and order? I highly doubt it.

More than likely, they will sidle up to the thugs who oppress them, and comply with their demands (even coming to adore their oppressors), as if stricken by the Stockholm Syndrome. They will become quislings intent on saving their own asses, discarding any facade of being “Americans.” Instead, they will become anything their oppressors want them to be.

Ours is a fragile civilization; dependent on a culture of convenience, on aged power grids, on lines of communication that can be easily disabled, and on over-reliance on computers and the Internet. When the shit hits the fan, and starving citizens are scrambling for water and leadership, it will be the Conservatives who will rise from the chaos.

Conservatives will have the moral courage and Christian generosity to share supplies, organize tasks, and provide leadership. Of this, I am certain. Not so with liberals. Though they proclaim themselves “progressives,” they will continuously prove themselves to be regressive in their behavior.

Why? Because they have no values that are based on the foundation of reality and truth. Because they are Godless.

Any policies that are divorced from common sense and history (such as Obama’s policies), are doomed to fail. Anyone who espouses such policies, therefore, will also fail.

Of course, all of this is just extrapolation on my part; based upon the actions of our contemporaries and our predecessors. But, there is no truer teacher than History. Though mankind continues to develop, one thing never changes: the truth. And the truth is something liberals find anathema to their worldview.

Thus, it is in this light that I feel confident is proclaiming: It is Liberalism that will fail before Conservatism ever does. Thankfully, America will be the stronger for it.

Unicorn, DoDo Birds, Conservatives Voting for Hillary and Other Mythical Creatures

Lately, I’ve been hearing television commentators and media pundits proclaim that more and more “staunch Republicans” are leaving the Party to vote for Hillary. And, why? Because they want “free” Universal Health Care. Not because of Operation Chaos, mind you. Not because an Obama Presidency would catastrophic for our nation. But, for the free Health Care.

News Flash, Liberal Mouthpieces: There is no such thing as a true Conservative deciding to vote for a Leftist. No honest-to-God, Reagan Conservative would EVER vote for a liberal, regardless of what bribes the liberal was offering.

That would be like claiming Hugo Chavez suddenly saw the light, encouraged Capitalism, and started subscribing to Rush Radio. And, that Hugo invited The Devil (President Bush) over for a game of pool.

Liberalism and Conservatism are diametrically-opposed philosophies. They aren’t just mindsets, they are lifestyles. So, it is really hard to take editorialized comments made by news anchors seriously.

Despite their efforts to paint Hillary and Obama as political saviours, there is no way in Hell a Conservative would think that proposed multi-billion dollar tax increases are the way this country should go. “Staunch Republicans” do not forsake their values.

For, to be a Conservative is to live, act, and think Values. It is the core principle of Conservatism. Faith in God is stronger than liberal pablum. Understanding the genius of Capitalism means a Conservative understands how this country’s economy works. Faith and understanding are not so easily discarded; regardless of what the liberal MSM would have you believe .

If anything, I see more and more former liberals coming out in support of nuclear energy, securing our borders, preserving this country’s identity, and realizing just how naive and dopey they once were.

Liberals should disabuse themselves of the notion that their morally-bankrupt Party would ever convert God-fearing, Patriotic Americans. They would sooner glimpse a DoDo riding a unicorn.

Redefining Right and Wrong In Order to Redefine America

There is right and there is wrong, and no matter how much Liberals want to deny this reality, it is true. A concerted effort by the Left to redefine right and wrong has been the primary source of discord within our nation since the Sixties. Over the past forty years, God has been removed from American Life. This is not because Americans are becoming “progressive,” but rather it is because the Left has actively attacked Christianity and traditional American values. But why?

The answer is simple. Liberals don’t like the idea of right and wrong because moral judgments put a crimp on their immoral world view, their socially-damaging hedonistic lifestyles, and their Socialist aspirations.

Many militant atheists on the Internet and on television love to claim that though they scoff at the idea of a God, they are still moral people. They define morality as an innate human understanding of what is universally right and what is universally wrong. To them, belief in a higher power is social weak-mindedness; religion, they argue, is an antiquated construct designed to control and oppress the populace. There is no need for God in modern world, they say. We are enough. We are the arbiters of universal truth.

If the Left’s view of the human condition were true, and mankind was instinctively good, then why do children need to be socialized to think more about their family unit and the greater society than just about their own selfish, narcissistic needs and desires? Surely, children instinctively know right from wrong, correct? But, if mankind intuitively knew universal right from wrong, why are there such disparate differences between human cultures and their values? Why is Life valued so much in the West and not as much (if at all) in the East?

And, if the atheist and the Liberal view of humanity were true, why does mankind even have the capacity for faith? Why did religion even develop? Why didn’t humanity, long ago, emerge from caves with pointy ears and suppressed emotions, speaking of logic and “the burning time?”

The Left uses Cultural Equivalency to dismiss the importance of God in society, and, especially, to denigrate Judeo-Christian American values. By falsely claiming the Founding Fathers did not base this nation’s Constitution on Judeo-Christian principles, the Left is hoping to remove the religious underpinning of our nation. The Separation of Church and State myth is a lie used by the Left (and propagated by their accomplices in the Media) to expedite this end.

America the Beautiful God Bless America. In God We Trust. All these ideas must be abolished by the Left if they are to turn America from a capitalistic representative democracy to a secular Socialist State. Therefore, the idea of American Exceptionalism, which is such a disdainful concept to liberals, must be diminshed and ridiculed.

Liberals do this daily by pointing to other cultures as truly superior to ours because those cultures espouse “progressive” views like strictly secular government (replacing belief in God’s commandments with belief in the almighty State’s laws), respect for others’ values (multiculturalism), and acceptance of multisexual normalcy (or, rejection of the traditional family unit).

The Left has successfully used sex as a political weapon to further their Socialist goals. In California, Senate Bill 777 makes it against the law for educators to use any curricula that contains language that could potentially offend students whose parental lifestyles differ from traditional family lifestyles. Presumably, this makes the phrase “mom and dad” subject to hate crime laws. In this bill, even the question of gender (which never never used to be a question) has been politicized and legislated.

Members of the Transgendered microminority are demanding separate bathrooms at schools so they can feel “comfortable and safe.” They also demand that they be allowed to use any bathroom they wish, because, inside they may be a man or a woman, despite what plumbing they were born with. Never mind that by allowing them to do so, educators might make the majority of other students feel uncomfortable or unsafe.

There are three genders in nature: male, female, and hermaphrodite. In the human species there are supposed to be only two: male and female. However, because there are rare instances when a human is born with an extra set of genitalia, the Left declares there is no such thing as gender. Taking the exception to the rule, Liberals have redefined human sexuality in order to make normal that which is not. And, that which is normal is decried by acronymed activists as “heteronormative.” As if being normal were a shameful, oppressive state of being in this brave new world of theirs.

The mantra of the Left is “If it feels good, it’s good for you.” But, is doing what feels good for the individual always good for society? More often than not, no. In fact, doing what feels good has gotten a lot of individuals in trouble because their actions have a direct and negative impact on those around them. As well it should! New York Governor Eliot Spitzer (Dem) revealed yesterday that he has paid for the services of a prostitution ring. Apparently, for six years. Today, the apologists in the Mainstream Media are gnashing their teeth and blaming American values for this “tragedy.” And, not because the governor’s actions have harmed his wife, daughters, family, and constituents, but because once again America’s Puritanical expectations of ethical behavior on the part of its citizens are damaging the career of a “brilliant man.”

Actually, he is just another a hypocritical politician.  He has run on an anti-corruption platform for years, and now he has admitted to committing egregious acts that run counter to his public proclamations of ethical standards. Yet, Spitzer is not the only hypocrite in Congress. There are politicians on both sides of the aisle who have committed adultery and/or broken the laws they have sworn to uphold. It is truly sad and telling, however, how the liberals in the Mainstream Media are making sickeningly obvious attempts to excuse Spitzer by parading one liberal commentator after an other to tell us how adultery is such a silly reason for forcing him from office. After all, if a French or British, or German politician has an affair, it is a “private issue that wouldn’t even make the eighteenth page of the newspaper. We Americans are the laughingstock of the world. We’re soooo prudish.”

Oh, really? The French weren’t having conniptions over the public and presumably sexual relationship between he and the young model who is now his second wife? And, politician’s indiscretions aren’t really only private. They do affect his/her public actions. Blackmail, for instance, could be used to force an indiscreet politician into pushing through legislation that is counter to the nation’s security or values.

Ironically, the MSM’s modis operandi when covering such revelations of indiscretion on the part of  a Republican politician, is to crucify him for being caught with his pants down (the dirty bastard!). Apologies are demanded, his office must be vacated immediately, and every spokeshole on the alphabet stations make it perfectly clear that those on the Right are clearly devoid of any ethical standards. Meanwhile, the Media turns a blind eye to Democrat evils, and cheerfully report about the latest anti-American attack or protest (all while ignoring pro-American stories and squelching any mention of positive news in Iraq). Nope, no bias there…

So, how has America come to this sorry state of being? Plainly, it is because the Left is using social engineering legislation, biased reportage in our Media, and liberal indoctrination in our schools to erode traditional values. The overwhelming majority of individuals in the Media are self-identified liberals. For anyone not sure what a “liberal” is, it is an anti-Traditional American values member of the far left wing of the Democrat Party who believes in uneducated actor-activist tirades, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, global warming, and Socialism-Communism. Their agenda, therefore, is to eliminate God from the public square and to make citizens dependent on the State. To successfully do so, they must redefine right and wrong.

If what is traditionally right is now viewed as wrong, and what is historically and naturally normal is now abnormal or oppressive, then citizens start to doubt all of their cultural assumptions. Political Correctness is the primary tool for the cultural subversives enacting this confusion. When one is not sure of the validity of one’s positions, that person remains silent. The more Americans who remain silent, the easier it is for the unAmericans among us to continue to wreak havoc on our culture. We must not remain silent any longer. Too much depends on our voices being heard. At the very least, we are rapidly at risk of losing our freedom of self-determination as a people and as individuals.

So, I say, speak up when you know the truth is being redefined as part of the Leftist Agenda! Do. not. be. afraid. any. longer! Express your opinion. It is your RIGHT. Unlike abortion, and licenses for illegal aliens (ahem, Gov. Spitzer!), and municipally-funded parades for gays, your freedom of speech is an actual right enumerated in our Constitution. Do not let anyone take that right away from you. Do not be shouted down. Do not be confused by the subversives and their lies. For God’s sake, educate yourself about our true history and about our Constitution! Yes, for God’s sake.

Because if we abandon God, He will surely abandon us. And rightly so. Do not let the Left redefine right and wrong. And, do not let them tell you there is no right from wrong, as the liberals in England have successfully done to their citizens.

Truth is immutable. And the truth is, what’s right is right, and what’s wrong should always be decried by Society and vigorously punished; even if it puts a crimp in the Godless hedonists’ lifestyles.

What Makes an American an “American?”

Consequential times are upon us. Our culture is under assault from without and from within. Given the global anti-American environment we find ourselves in, perhaps it is time to redefine ourselves. Not in others’ terms, but on our own. The vital question we should all be asking ourselves is, “What makes an American an American?”

Is it being a person who shamelessly accepts entitlement bribes from politicians who are only trying to buy themselves into office?

Is it being a person who expects cradle-to-grave security in exchange for self-determination and financial freedom?

Is it being a person who is willing to be less than his or her full potential?

I sure as hell hope not. Americans are made of sterner stuff.

Yes, Life is hard. And it should be. The human condition is defined by challenges met, endured, and overcome. Failure is our greatest teacher. It isn’t something we should deny ourselves, or our children. And, while we may occasionally experience despair because of continual failure; there is, burning within us, a tenacious spirit.

It is a spirit whose flame should be stoked so that it rages within our national bosom. With this spirit ablaze, we will continue to face potential failures, and to accept them as integral parts of life. Life isn’t made easier by sugarcoating words; not when it is the unvarnished Truth that is needed. Nor is Hopelessness salved by accepting that which we have not earned. Take away competition, and you take away what it means to be an American.

Sadly, the term “rugged individualism” is quickly being supplanted in our national lexicon by “institutionalized victimhood.” This must not continue. Anyone willing to trade their freedom for false security is not thinking like an “American.”

Americans are self-reliant, not dependent. Americans are industrious, not lazy. Americans are determined, not weak. Any other definition is unacceptable. Especially when it is foisted upon us by fellow countrymen.

Cackling Commies and Socialist Scum

I remember a time, not too long ago, when the idea of Socialism in American politics would have been unthinkable. At least, unthinkable to patriotic Americans. Now, the face of Socialism is laughing (or rather, cackling) at us from New York State as she runs for President of the United States of America.

To say that I am distressed by the flagrant promotion of Socialist ideas by this woman, and by her brethren in the Congressional Democrat Party, is an understatement. I am absolutely appalled. What the hell has happened to politics in this country? Daily, we are assailed by fresh insults to our national character. And, these attacks are not just from the Left.

Weak-willed Republicans pander to “the Center,” but really are just trying to assuage ultra-Liberal operatives. RINOs like these are every bit as deceitful and ruinous as Code Pinko, Moveon.borg, and George “I’m Going to Reshape America” Soros. Who are these damned people to try to change our values and traditions?

They are traitors.

Traitors to American values like self-reliance, self-determination, and love of God. Make no mistake about it: Americans are a faithful and true people. We believe our country stands for sterling principles. Truth, justice, and the American Way is not an “outmoded slogan.” It is a statement; one that encapsulates a very worthy code of ethics, and which helps to define our very way of life.

Yet, the Far Left despises that way of life. Since the Sixties, they have worked in earnest, secretly at first, now unabashedly, to undermine our culture. How self-loathing does one have to be to work against one’s own people? I have pondered this imponderable since 2004, when Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, et al, made it clear they hated our Military and our Country. They undermined our war effort, undermined our Military, and subverted our President. They are traitors. Traitors who bend the truth and change the rules without shame.

Those on the Left have been changing the rules since 2000, when the Democrats started their unrelenting push for power at any cost. When things don’t go their way in Congress, they change procedural rules. When things don’t go their way in elections, they change electorial traditions. When reality doesn’t reflect their skewed view of life, they lie. And lie. And lie. And lie. They besmirch, denigrate, and LIE.

How long will those of us who still believe in the greatness of our country allow these lies to go unchallenged? I’m not talking to the Rush Limbaughs, Sean Hannitys, and Michael Savages of America; you folks have been every bit as patriotic and vocal as we need you to be. No, I’m talking about the other yous: you regular, all-American Joes, like me. When will we finally get off of our collective, silent asses and scream, “Hell no! I will NOT let America go under. I will NOT let liars tell me my country is not exceptional. I will NOT be silent any longer!”

This is our challenge; to be willing to fight this war. It is a cultural war whose outcome will determine the fate of our dear country. It is the greatest war we have fought to date. And, it rages in the hearts and minds of every Patriotic American. I hope you decide to enlist.

As you fight this war, stand fast against the gales of cackling laughter. Be resolute against the soul-sapping Socialist values that are eroding our national character. Be brave! After all, America is still the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. Remember?
