Letter from Reader – too good NOT to share
All the credit for this post goes to John B., a local reader and active Republican. When we say it like this, it seems blatantly clear – so obvious that it enrages those of us who actually see the problem. Please Enjoy.
Thanks for your email. They are always informative, although not always uplifting.
As I look back over the time frame from 1929 to 1945 I try to analyze the downward spiral and the recovery that followed.
Herbert Hoover did nothing and FDR did not have a plan.
The rise of the military state (the Axis) was fueled by the economic conditions imposed on it after WWI and the depression that followed. Hitler offered hope, as misguide as it was, to the German people.
Our recovery was result of the demand created by WWII. At the end of the war America had the greatest means of production in the world. We took that production to produce both capital and consumer goods, and used our labor to build the infrastructure to support it. Then we not only sold but also gave our industrial production to nations world wide. (the Marshal Plan)
As we sold goods and services we accumulated both power and cash, with this we became a super power! Over time we have allowed our industrial base to move offshore and with it the profit it made.
If America wants to maintain a position of power, we must rebuild that industrial base.
The problem being, whenever you produce a product there is an environmental and social impact that a very vocal well organized minority will not accept. Not only that, but they scream it at you at the top of their lungs every chance they get.
The secret to the solution of the current economic mess is this:
Before you can CONSUME something you have to PRODUCE something!
To do this you have to build.
National wealth and power are the result of one of four activities:
Fishing, Farming, Mining and Manufacturing.
And the collateral activities that are associated with them…
Government needs to get out of the way! It also needs to foster an
environment that both encourages production and maximizes the output of the individual.
What’s it going to take to get our elected representatives to realize this or more so the American People?
The answer is simple – the elected officials do not care. They are all preoccupied with their pet projects and favors to friends – as is evidenced by their $800 Billion “payback” to left wing organizations – those who supported their campaigns this election cycle… There is nothing “stimulating” about this bill… and I say it again, it is evidence that the elected officials simply do not care anymore.
The American people care – if they are educated on the issues… unfortunately, in today’s society, that is like herding cats, or pushing a wet noodle… As an officer of the County GOP, I can tell you that I was ANGRY over the sheer number of calls I received ON NOVEMBER 5TH from angry voters asking what they could do to help… my initial thought was “hop in a time machine and do the work before the elections”… but I simply smiled, and directed them to our website – or took their information for future volunteerism – or informed them of small groups that meet regularly that may welcome the added support. In a world of distractions and 7 minute attention spans, it is a wonder how anyone can pull themselves out of muck and become an active and informed citizen.
Thank you John for your input and feedback. The thoughtful insight is worthy of recognition by me and the readers of the blog.
Obama to Republicans: Get on Board, or Get Out of the Way
Obama’s continual call to “Keep Politics to a Minimum” is already getting under my skin in a bad way! It is the battle cry of the left – when they are the minority party, there is a continual “kumbaya” for bi-partisanship and inclusion of their liberal ideals… Now that they hold a solid majority, there is a deafening roar of “GET ON BOARD!”
Obama’s words are intended to slander the conservative values, an attempt to drive home the propaganda that “conservatism has failed – and those ideals are outdated and unwanted in the New America”…
It is the new truth – “Capitalism has failed” and “Conservatism has failed”… lefties are shouting this message from the rooftops… but what they do not understand is that they are cheering in the end of actual liberties… The pendulum in America is farther left than ever before – so much to the point that the structure of America is going to come under undue strain… and it WILL begin to crumble as we gain momentum leftward…
Capitalism, true capitalism, is little more than the freedom to create a good or service and to trade that good or service for a price that a consumer is freely willing to pay. The key word is freedom – the freedom to create and the freedom to equally trade for someone else’s creation (or fruits of their creation)
Socialism, true socialism, is little more than labor for the sake of service – labor to normalize (as in to stabilize the economy for nothing more than “the greater good”)… labor, not from our wants, but from our abilities – merely to provide for the needs of the many…
Under socialism, there is little room for innovative growth… it is better to keep the bloated car companies producing inferior products and to keep 2 million laborers working than to allow the market to correct itself and follow the innovation and NEW goods or services which may make the quality of life of everyone better… Socialism is the Government Regulation of which industries live, and which industries die.
Capitalism is dead – but not a failed policy… it was strangled by the slow regulation by increased socialist ideology, who eventually claimed that it is the solution to the failed capitalist experiment… using increased propaganda and lies to fool the proletarians into believing that regulations were part of Capitalism… in fact, they were the plaque on the arteries of capitalism…
Capitalism: I created an automotive vehicle – able to transport you from point A to B.
Socialism: You must make you vehicle conform to impossible standards regulated by the govt… and your labor force may have the right to force you to overpay – making your product unmarketable and inferior over time.
Now to tackle the question about Conservatism… Conservatism is not entirely dead – but it is clearly shadowed by the neo-con movement’s constant “shadowing” of liberal ideals, with the eventual buckling to the leftward movement in America… true conservatism – paleo conservatism – is the steadfast adherence to the ideals of personal responsibility and personal liberty…
True conservatives believe that not only does a mother have rights over her body, but that an unborn and viable child has rights over it’s own life!
True conservatives believe the words and teachings of the founding fathers – that true liberty cannot be achieved under intrusive government.
True conservatives believe that personal responsibility should never be replaced by government social regulation – that morality and faith trump fear from government.
True conservatives believe that a nation is healthy ONLY WHEN the government fears it’s people – NOT the other way around…
For Obama to ask Republicans and Conservatives to abandon our principles for little more than what is being described as “a line after line after line of favorite liberal spending programs and it amounts to a big government bill, not a job creation” – well, that is pompous ignorance in the founding principles of this country, ignorance in the importance of debate, and ignorance in leadership. Ultimately, it is a shrill warning that anyone who opposes the New America is in for a battle – in for a struggle – a fight… The left are working tirelessly, led by the words of Obama, to convince Americans that freedom and liberty are only found in big government…
War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength…
Bush sold the world on “War is Peace” – the farthest left, Big Government President until Obama…
Obama is selling the world on “Freedom is Slavery” – that the free market, free choice, free ideals are nothing more than creations of the “wealthy” or the Capitalist Pigs forcing your labors to make them more wealthy… (unfortunately, we are becoming slaves to the bondage of the government)
Ignorance is Strength… reality TV has solidified the mindless zombie in America… the distraction which makes you FEEL like you are involved in a greater something else – but what is actually happening behind the scenes is that those in control are working to disarm and dominate the peoples of this land…
Resistance is not futile, Mr Obama. I applaud any lawmaker who questions your “bailout” of billions for ACORN, billions for condoms, and billions for other liberal pet projects… Show me where you have that right… and I will show you what rights I have!
