POLITICAL: Obama is Just One Vote Away in Ga. from Total Control

# – # – #

Any one in Georgia?

While I think their suggested tag line is a little over the top, it does have an element of truth to it. I’m a little L libertarian; not a D or an R. BUT, it would be nice to deny either the D’s or the R’s that filibuster 60th Senate vote. Divided, stuck, squabbling government is my preference.

POLITICAL: My economic recovery plan

Fallen Angel
by George Giles

*** begin quote ***

Our one party has two wings blue state socialists and red state fascists, they only disagree on minor conjectures like should we fleece the public fisc through the Federal Reserve, or the Internal Revenue service, or both?

*** and ***

If eternal vigilance is the price of liberty then Americans, as a culture, have been found wanting. The immense debt, the vanishing equity, and the struggling economic infrastructure are the waves upon which our ship of state sails.

*** end quote ***

Wonder if the sheeple will realize they have been had? If we have faith in the “American experiment”, then we can return to our roots of rugged individualism, cast out the socialists, and let the truly free market return us to prosperity. Enlightened individual self-interest is a powerful engine of prosperity. But, we have to be the “home of the free and land of the brave”.

(1) Let the bad actors in the marketplae fail. Citi, GM, NBC, or whomever has a problem; it’s just that. Their problem. Hard bitter medicine? Yes, but essential into correcting the “moral hazard” that our politicians have allowed to happen.

(2) Restore the “uptick rule” that prevents bear raids. FIre the genius at the Treasury, Fed, SEC that changed that one historical gem of an idea.

(3) Restore the marketplace in mortgages. Home ownership may not be for everyone. 20% down! Review every mortgage for criminal fraud. (Rumor hath it that Organized Crime went into the mortgage business.)

(4) End the “Drug Prohibition” policy. Sorry, but it’s nobody’s business what anyone puts in their own body. Pardon all non-violent drug offenders. Allow WalMart to battle the “illegal violent drug dealers”. (The cost of impure illicit drugs will dissolve overnight when Sam Walton’s children become “drug dealers”.) Clean safe drugs at everyday low prices will take all the profit and sexiness out of the drug culture. Hard to imagine a drug war over aspirin level prices. Pot, heroin, crack, and speed for $4 for a month’s supply? Maybe then as a society, we can focus on the medical problems that addicition represents. And, stop killing children both directly and indirectly. Eleimate all the drug agencies: DEA, FDA, and on and on. Consumers Reports, Underwriters Labratory, and “Drug Stores” like WalMart will do a far better job of keeping us safe.

(5) Downsize governemnt at all levels. Let’s conduct a raid on all these bloated kingdoms of waste. Let’s cut 5% per year. Every year.

(6) Let’s cut taxes. Business tax should be 0, but let’s start but cutting it to 10%. (Ireland is 11%!) We know that businesses don’t pay taxes; people do! Personal income tax ditto 10%. And, ONLY ONE ENTITY can collect our 10%. Either Federal, State, or Local gooferment. How they divide it up I care not, but no more than 10%. Property taxes should also be 0. Let the police, fire, and trash be supplied on a competitive basis.

(7) Let’s all MYOB. Marriage should be left to churches; not the gooferment.

How’s that for an economic recovery plan?

POLITICAL: Record turnout?

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Drudge is reporting 62M votes of O and 55M votes for McC. That’s 117M votes in a country of 300M? A third in what’s widely touted as the best turn out ever.

Do we have the beginnings of a revolt?

POLITICAL: Who’s to blame for the election?

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Well. clearly, the McCain campaign was a disaster, but is it all his fault.

(1) The liberal media certainly was Obama’s chief cheerleader.

(2) George Bush made his first mistake when there was no viable VP to take over for him.

(3) George Bush was a closet liberal. He didn’t govern as a “conservative”; compassionate or otherwise.

(4) The failure to regulate the mortgage market with a simple effective “damping” of the sub-prime mortgage market was a critical gooferment failure. NINJA loans were a well known scandal. The Fed could have put in a minimum percentage down payment rule; akin to its margin requirement rule. Congress — being paid off by Fannie and Freddie — could have passed restraining legislation; at least to divide Fannie and Freddie into small regional competitors. The Judiciary could have found that loan agreements that had negative amortization, adjustable into the sky, or other terms as unenforceable as “fraudulent” or “unsuitable”. So there’s enough blame to go around.

(5) The sheeple are easily led. A victory for the dis-education system of Horace Mann. It’s created uncritical voters who are easily swung by emotional media.

The question becomes what will the Republican / December duopoly? Does Liberty have a doorway to slip through with the demolition of the Republican Party and will the Democrats be destroyed by success?

Out of the rubble can Liberty activists forge a new path to a voluntary society?

POLITICAL: Are elections important where there is no choice?

Monday, November 3, 2008

PROVISION #589 (11/02/08): ELECTION ENERGY

>You’re also participating in that great movement called democracy. The opposite of democratic
>is not republican; the opposite of democratic is aristocratic. “Democratic” means rule of the
> people, the “demos” in Greek, while “aristocratic” means rule of the best, the “aristos”.

You have got to be kidding. This is a joke. Right? You can’t be serious. This is what the Founding Fathers feared most; the inflamed passions of the mob.

Sorry, given today’s education system, which is right out of the Socialist Horace Mann’s playbook, we have functionally illiterate people picking based on TV. I’ve got more respect for “Dancing with the Stars” election process than I do “the gooferment’s one”. (Have you seen the mechanics of voting?) Mann wanted an education system to create good factory workers and soldiers for the army. People who were easily lead by the elite.

See any elite in this election?

I sure do!

Sarah is the only wild card in the deck. And, at least she has some demonstrated executive ability. She is probably the most qualified of all of them. At least she hasn’t been in Washington DC at all.

No, this isn’t about an Athenian democracy. Or Plato’s “Republic”. This is about “manipulation”. Yes, you did see raw intelligent passion as folks came out for Ron Paul. There was a TRUE choice. A completely different path! Hopeless; throwing themselves against the entrenched elites of the Republican Party. Mao said “All power comes from the end of a gun”. He was dead on.

We have an American because some Dead Old White Guys stood up to the entrached power elite and said “hell, no!” and were willing to die for their liberty. We’ve seen from time to time that fighting spirit come out — the Second American Revolution aka the War of Norther Aggression aka the Civil War (there’s a misnomer).

The elite allows “elections” on the hope that the sheeple will carry on the illusion of “their government”. In fact, it is a fraud. Your friend was absolutely right there’s no difference between the two “parties”. In the election that you abhor the Supreme Court deciding, there was only two choices the Harvard guy with the blue tie and the Harvard guy with the red tie. They are so much alike I can even remember who wore what!

No, the whole thing is a farce! Except at the end of it, the gooferment kills. It kills with its diversion of our attention to REAL problems. To the real loss of liberty here at home and abroad. Eventually, the chickens do come home to roost.

At some point in time, the oppressed decide that they are tired of “the shit end of the stick”. They look at their lot in life and make a decision to say “enuf”! If we are lucky, it’s relatively peaceful like Ghandi, the Polish Soladarity, or the Russian Communism collapse. If we are not, it’s bloody like the French Revolution, Mao taking China Communicst, North Korea, Nazi Germany.

I fear we are merely traveling the road that ends in disaster. Election, or not. When you have Socialism, whether it be from a Democrat or a Republican, that takes an ever increasing percentage of wealth and earnings, while one’s accumulated wealth is inflated away, you have the focus point of revolution. At some point, even American’s will say “enuf”?

Can’t tell you at what point exactly that is. When the taxes so much, that survival is in doubt? When a life’s savings are stolen? When the insame gooferment diktats about drugs have half the people in prison? When the unemployment is 50%? When the dollar ceases to be the reserve currency and we have a Zimbabwe inflation? When Hispanics become the dominent race here in America? If Obama loses and half the people think the other half are racists? If McCain loses and half the people think the other half are Marxist Communist Socialists?

Eventually, all gooferments get around to killing their citizens. Like the JPFO says: “Frist comes disarmament; then genocide.” We will have a “vote” then. I pray it’s Ghandi-like. But, I’m not so sure of that. I do know that “cold dead hands” will decide the issue eventually. Not ballots.

Peace,
fjohn

GUNS: Obama is an anti-gun liberal

American Thinker: Democrats Should Fear the ‘Brady Effect’.
October 29, 2008
By Brad O’Leary

*** begin quote ***

As a U.S. Senator, Obama voted to ban most rifle ammunition commonly used for hunting and sport shooting. As a State Senator, he voted to uphold local gun bans and the criminal prosecution of citizens and homeowners who use a gun in self-defense. Also as a State Senator, he endorsed raising the federal excise tax on firearms and ammunition 500 percent. And Obama supports gun registration – which history has shown is the first step to gun confiscation.

If Obama’s legislative record on the Second Amendment isn’t clear enough, he infamously reminded voters in Pennsylvania earlier this year of his disdain for gun owners, calling them bitter xenophobes who use the Bill of Rights, which protects gun ownership, and religion as a crutch.

*** end quote ***

When politicians are anti-gun, you have to ask what do they have in store for the citizenry that requires them to be disarmed. If the Shoah / Holocaust has taught us anything, it is that Genocide follows Disarmament. It was so in pre-WW2 Germany, China, Cambodia, and countless places at different times.

The Dead Old White Guys knew that the Government, any government, was dangerous. Hope when folks think about voting, they remember the “gun rights” issue.

“A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Seems simple enough to me? Take a minute and either view or download the video at http://www.jpfo.org/filegen-a-m/2a-today-download.htm (It’s free!)

Think for a moment about how you’ll feel when you, your family, and neighbors are herded by armed men into the railroad cars for the camps. Don’t say it can’t happen here. It did! Think back to the Japanese Internment. Think back to how Indians were treated. Mao said: “Power comes at the end of the barrel of a gun!” How many did he kill?

For me, the “gun issue” is a litmus test on politicians. It tells me whether I can trust them with the awesome power of the government.

I think once again, America is at a crossroads. The choices are obvious. Except to the sheeple who have been dumbed down by gooferment education.

“Cold dead hands”!

POTUS08: O IS really a Marxist!

Obama Bombshell Redistribution of Wealth Audio Uncovered

Wow! Here’s a bombshell. It exposes that the man is a Marxist Socialist. Hearing his words, he, in Clintonesque stype, parses around it. Never letting anyone know what his codewords mean. Hold on to your wallet if he gets elected!

RANT: Media double standard? No, the media has NO standards.

What if ‘SNL’ mocked Michelle Obama?

Posted: October 23, 2008 7:17 pm Eastern

Pat Buchanan was twice a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and the Reform Party’s candidate in 2000. He is also a founder and editor of The American Conservative. Now a political analyst for MSNBC and a syndicated columnist, he served three presidents in the White House, was a founding panelist of three national TV shows, and is the author of seven books.

*** begin quote ***

Can one imagine “Saturday Night Live” doing weekly send-ups of Michelle Obama and her “I’ve never been proud” of my country, this “just downright mean” America, using a black comedienne to mimic and mock her voice and accent?

“Saturday Night Live” would be facing hate-crime charges.

How do we know? When the New Yorker ran a cartoon of Michelle in an Angela-Davis afro with an AK-47 slung over her shoulder, New Yorker editors had to go on national television to swear they were not mocking Michelle, but the conservatives who have so caricatured Michelle and the Messiah.

Is there a media double standard? You betcha.

*** end quote ***

The Media was once the American People’s “guardian of the truth”. How far they have fallen. They are now nothing more than cheerleaders for Socialism! Why should we be surprised? The “education industry” has been taken over by Communists. The “business model” is Fascist anyway. It was intended to make cannon fodder and factory workers to led by “the elite”. It has succeeded beyond its designer’s wildest expectations.

Where there is no vision, the people perish?

RANT: LICENSE, lisence, … we don’t need no sinkin licenses!

Saturday, October 18, 2008

Joe the Outlaw by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

*** begin quote ***

But the New York Times did some digging and discovered – horror – that Joe is doing plumbing without a proper business license. How dare he call himself a plumber! A license is required by Toledo, not just one license for a partnership but for everyone who is called a plumber. Joe has not taken the training courses, is not a member of the union, and cannot legally call himself a plumber.

The press reports on this were explosive, with reporters speaking as if they had caught this guy red-handed and completely discredited him. But what about the complete absurdity of the idea that you have to have a license in order to have the right to fix someone else’s sink? This is Soviet like, but deeply entrenched in American professional life.

The idea of licensing is that it assures quality standards. But this is just a cover used by guilds since the Middle Ages. The real goal of licensing is to create a professional cartel. Fewer providers means higher wages for those with licenses. It is all about boosting income by restricting competition. This is of course a violation of human rights because it impinges on the fundamental freedom of association.

*** end quote ***

Lew got this online before I could, And, of course, did it much better than I could. But, this is what I first thought when the press ‘discovered’ the outlaw.

A more important scandal would have been if they could have found an unhappy customer of Joe’s. That would have been a scoop.

Since it’s a successful plumbing business, I’m reasonably sure they would find one. (Well, there’s always one.)

Funny, how the ‘bad’ plumbers always seem to have licenses?

POLITICAL” O closer to his disavowed mentor

Who Wrote Dreams From My Father?
By Jack Cashill

*** begin quote ***

Prior to 1990, when Barack Obama contracted to write Dreams From My Father, he had written very close to nothing. Then, five years later, this untested 33 year-old produced what Time Magazine has called — with a straight face — “the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician.”

{Extraneous Deleted}

*** end quote ***

Interesting assertion, that hook O closer to his disavowed mentor.
