Are Democrats Communists?

That’s right, are they communists?  The Democratic Party has slowly been evolving.  It’s taken a long time, and now most Americans don’t even recognize what it has become. 

What is communism?  What is it that makes communism communism?  It’s redistribution of wealth.  When your government takes your money and gives it to who they say needs it, that’s communism.  You see, we have a society here that works on capitalism.   Capitalism is where you do what you do and the money you earn is yours.  If you do it well and there is a good enough market for it, you will become successful.  Even rich.  It’s what makes “the pursuit of happiness” possible.  But these days the Democrats are all about taking your money (in the form of taxes) to give it to who they think need it more than you do.  It doesn’t matter how hard you’ve worked for it, or even if what you did to earn it helped people.  They want to take it from you regardless.  And like I said before, government imposed wealth redistribution is communism.  Don’t believe me?  Look it up.

A communist society works to eliminate classes.  There are no rich people and no poor people.  Everyone is the same, and the government takes care of them all with the money earned and products made by the people.  At least in theory.  We see how well it’s worked in every nation that has tried it. 

Let me back all this up by calling to your attention the fact that Socialism is, literally, the halfway point between capitalism and communism.  (look that up too while you’re at it)  Socialized medicine anyone?  I’m telling you, our Democratic “leaders” are leading us down the path to communism, and we don’t even see it.  Every time a signpost comes up that says “This way to communism”, a faithful Democrat jumps in front of it to block our view as we all mosey right on by.  And who is one of the worst offenders?  Barrack Obama.  Yeah, let’s elect him President! 

The only way to save our nation is with smaller federal government and more power at the state level.  I’m afraid there’s too many dumb-asses in this country being told what to think, so I don’t expect us to fix it.  We’ve let ourselves become tools of our goverment instead of the other way around, the way it was designed to be, intented to be.  If enough of us wake up, there is hope.  Hello?  Is this thing on?

Political Protestors

You’ve seen them.  They go to any non-liberal event and try to outnoise whoever is speaking to disrupt them and to keep people from hearing what the speakers have to say.  Isn’t this an infringement on the speaker’s right to free speech?  And if we have a right to free speech, doesn’t that go hand in hand with a right to free listening?  I believe it does.  We have the right to listen to whomever we want to listen to.  Otherwise, the right to free speech is useless. 

So here’s what I’m getting at.  Why do we allow these people to do it?  We let them stand there and shout and be in the way.  We let them take away our basic rights.  We can’t remove them by force, no matter how attractive that idea is.  It’s not legal so it puts us in the same group as them (annoying, uninformed assholes).  So it looks like we have to let them be there doing what they came to do.  They are going to disrupt the event no matter what we do, we have to just deal with that.  Here’s what I propose: 

First, we must NEVER do to them what they do to us.  Don’t try to drown out the speaker at liberal events.They are in the wrong and we mustn’t join that club. 

Second, bring a bullhorn to the event and get in THEIR face.  Stand right in front of them and say “blah blah blah” every time they speak.  We can’t stop them from disrupting, but we can stop them from spreading their message at events where no one in attendance wants to hear them.

Third, make your own signs supporting the event and stand right in front of the liberal sign holders to block anyone from seeing their sign.  They are pasty-skinned hippies who hate violence, we should have no problem outmaneuvering them. 

Don’t touch them unless it’s in self defense, and even then only when you have cameras on you to document the fact that they started the violence.  They often do because they are hypocrites who preach peace and love until someone gets on their nerves.  Simply stand in their way and smile, all the while blocking any attempt they make at disruption.  Fair play.

Virginia Tech

There’s about to be a big debate, so here’s my two cents worth.

“What is the militia?  It is the whole people.  To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” – George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights)

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” – Thomas Jefferson

You’ve probably seen the bumper sticker that says “If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns”.  Now you have proof that the framers had that opinion too.

Urine Test

I got an email today that has one of the best ideas I’ve heard in a long time.

Like a lot of folks in this state, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I  pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as they see fit. In  order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test,  which I have no problem with. 

What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people  who don’t have to pass a urine test. Shouldn’t one have to pass a urine  test to get a welfare check, because I have to pass one to earn it for  them? 

Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their  feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sit on  their butt. Could you imagine how much money the state would save if  people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?

Why Aren’t We Winning in Iraq?

You would think that removing a dictator and setting them up with democracy would be something they would embrace.  So why are so many of them still fighting it? 

Well, Dubya made a huge tactical error.  Islam (by the way, the word islam translates literally to “submission”, not “peace”) cannot work in conjunction with democracy.  They oppose each other.  But you can’t make 3 billion people just give up their religion.  And that’s what it would take to make democracy work there.

The Civil War

Hey, here’s an interesting bit of info:  the Civil War wasn’t about slavery!  It was about states’ rights!

Let me give you a quote.  (I love good quote)  This is from Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederacy, during his inaugural address on February 18, 1861.

“Our present political position has been achieved in a manner unprecedented in the history of nations.  It illustrates the American idea that goverments rest on the consent of the governed, and that it is the right of the people to alter or abolish them at will whenever they become destructive of the ends for which they were established.”

Did you know they had that right?  They did.  Know what else?  We still do. 

Make A Noise

I received an email from my local congressman’s office in response to an email I sent objecting to a bit of legislation.  Here’s what his office wrote:

Thank you for your recent correspondence in opposition of the lobbying reform amendments included in House Resolution 6.   As written, this resolution would negatively limit grass roots lobbying, but would not regulate other forms of lobbying and special interests.  Because of this unfairness, I opposed this bill, which unfortunately passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 232-200.    
Had this legislation been sent through the normal committee process, as opposed to being thrown into an agenda to be quickly passed through the House, these ‘loopholes’ would have been acknowledged.  The Senate, which allowed amendments, defeated the provision pertaining to grass roots lobbying.  I believe through a bipartisan effort we could have produced meaningful legislation that would affect all areas of lobbying and not only attempt to regulate the voices of the heart of America. 

Okay, now here’s what I have a problem with.  We REALLY need to stop the practice of throwing legislation “into an agenda to be quickly passed through the House”.  That should be illegal.  Nothing should be able to be sneaked in and passed before anyone has an opportunity to voice opposition.  It’s completely inapporpriate for a Congressman to misuse the trust given to him by his constituents.  Like I said recently in a comment on another blog site; we put you in office, we can take your ass out.

Do you guys realize what it will take to fix this situation if we don’t reign in these maniacs soon?  Revolution.  An uprising of the citizens against their government.  I don’t believe the people of this country have the backbone to do something like that, so we’re screwed, but that is what it will take in the not-so-distant future.  In our lifetime.

Write to your congressmen when they do things you don’t agree with.  Make a noise, otherwise you won’t be heard.  It’s not that hard, doesn’t take that much time, and it works if enough of us do it.  Stop letting yourselves be told what to think.
