Plunder

Plundering is the aim of "redistributional" politics and America has witnessed the most effective heist in history over the past two years.

I think that the GOP Pledge to America didn't go quite far enough, but it's an acceptable beginning. And "NO!" is an appropriate response to the statists who would loot the country. We are in the middle of a battle in that long war right now in the U.S. The forces of tyranny and collectivism have a rather bland--even benevolent-- face here (except for the botoxed and artificial features of Nancy Pelosi, who looks rather scary). But under the mask, the Obama's Pelosi's and Reid's of today are not very different from the Castro's or the Chavez's in fundamental principles--or rather the lack of them. They embrace the same discredited ideas and disguise them with the do-gooder's grotesque smile. The joke is on you.

The ideas they espouse all perfectly fit into that tired old Marxist framework that thinks only in terms of the dialectical of "oppressed vs. oppressors". This framework allows the left to continually fan the fires of class warfare and victimhood and thus become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Socialism and Communism cannot fail--they are merely victims of a vast capitalist/American/Jewish conspiracy! 

I'm amazed how the left keeps rationalizing socialism's failure to produce wealth. Admittedly, they are rather good at redistributing it (much of it into the leaders' pockets), so that everyone is poor; but the goons in charge just haven't grasped the concept that wealth production is just not something the government is able to do; and it gets harder and harder as time goes by to "redistribute" nothing--which is what you get when you demonize and/or kill off (literally and figuratively) those individuals who actually create wealth in your society.

  1. Communism will work in this country when it has failed everywhere else, because our communists are smarter than the others that have failed ... just ask them.

  2. I agree that "NO" is absolutely an appropriate response and one I want to hear over and over again until the obama agenda is a dead, buried, decaying corpse of ideas. But I am not happy with the Pledge to America. While I found nuggets of specifics contained within it, I also found a lot of rhetoric - something I am tired of - and I also found that it did not contain things that should have been stated. Maybe it's a beginning, I particularly liked that any bill had to have constitutional merit attached to it. We'll see...

  3. By the way, I couldn't read the little scribble in the left hand corner of the picture posted here, but it sure does look a lot like an AR-15! I assume that's intentional! :)

  4. Opie - Liberals are always convinced that they are smart -- even smarter than all other liberals/communists.

    Hoping - I like "NO" when it comes to an appropriate response to their spending programs. Pelosi (Wicked Witch) and others think that "NO" is a dirty word. So that must mean that it's a pretty good word.
