Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. – John Adams
|Distraction from real issues|
- The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." - Norman Thomas; (1884-1968) six-time U.S. Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America.
- Political Correctness is cultural Marxism. A politically correct society handcuffs free speech and free press, fuels thought control, and compromises a traditional social order for a more controlled system ruled over by an elite political oligarchy. – Douglas V. Gibbs, Political Correctness: Tools of Marxism.
- ...that the presence in a society of Christianity, capitalism, and the patriarchal-authoritarian family created a character prone to racial prejudice and German fascism. – Wilhelm Reich. American liberal-progressives and Europeans believe that Nazism is “right-wing” - but in reality it is a form of socialism.
Marxism wormed its way into the American infrastructure as far back as the 1930s, a time when the Nazi, communist Russia, and Imperial Japan was gathering its strength for war and conquest. Political correctness was launched in the 1960s when Marxist and socialist organizations encouraged public outrage and demonstrations against the Vietnam War; a tool of communism in order to get the American leadership out of Vietnam to make way for communist control. Americans like Jane Fonda fell for this and is why she was tricked into being a communist poster girl for their propaganda. To this day she is still called Hanoi Jane by veterans of Vietnam (and their descendents). Problem is she has not changed her views and her loyalty to socialism, despite practicing the very capitalism that she hails to despise.
Political Correctness began as a social annoyance and has escalated into the 'Hate Crime' mentality; which has inserted the “power of the state” into private society. It is approaching a crescendo not where unacceptable political thoughts will be criminalized. The Gay Rights folks are using this as their tool for dominating over the rights, liberties, and ideology of the majority of Americans. Like racism, they are also using guilt as a tool; professing rights that trample on other citizens rights. Yet, progressives who call themselves liberals, who are loyal to the so-called Democrat(ic) Party – are defiling their claim of promotion of democracy. Democracy decrees that the majority rule – so how can a small minority (3% or less) of the population tell the minority what is what? Hypocrisy is the trademark of liberal-progressive-socialists who hail the Democratic Socialist Party (Democrat Party) as the political organization to be in power. Well, at least those that are its leadership. Government is only as good as those that run it and as much integrity, values, and morality that the majority of the populace possess.
Democracy … while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide. – John Adams
Since Woodrow Wilson, the government, those who operate it, have insisted our form of government is a democracy; when it was never intended to be anything other than a republic, a constitutional republic. No mention was made in the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States. It is mentioned in the Federalist Papers, but only negatively like the quote above.
American society had grown tolerant of homosexuals and during the Clinton administration, the military's policy was: “Don't ask, Don't tell”. However, that was not good enough, despite that even though Christians and their churches rely on the scriptures of the New Testament for their behavior; many had some level of tolerance. Now that the minority of homosexuals have decided that they must be a part of civil rights, they assume that private sexual acts between two adults must be, by law, approved by everyone regardless of their beliefs and their rights under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States – the first amendment of the Bill of Rights. It is not a racial issue, it is an issue that involves sexual acts between people that is supposed to be private. It was upon that consensus that society began to be tolerant toward the concept. Whether or not there is mention in the Bible that such acts are considered ungodly and an abomination makes no difference to people with no set of values that require limitation. Progressives do not honor limitation, that is why they are comfortable with a government that has surpassed its constitutional limitations, encroaching upon rights of the People, sometimes even applauding the declination of rights and liberties prescribed by the Founders. Indeed, it has come to be that progressives who call themselves “liberal” have come to blame the Constitution for the crumbling of our republic and the woes they themselves have bestowed upon the nation via the government; all the while invoking the same part of the Constitution that puts in writing rights and liberties hailed as natural and provided by the Creator.
All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America rise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit, and circulation. – John Adams
Those that have been born here and are descendents from the era of the Age of Enlightenment, the Founders; who have grown to be unappreciated by modern generation of what provided liberties and rights We the People have today.
Let us tenderly and kindly cherish, therefore, the means of knowledge. Let us dare to read, think, speak, and write. – John Adams
Another plank of Marxism, a tool of government, is controlling the educational system; which eventually provides propaganda for a totalitarian and statist government. The welfare state is designed where more and more of the populace becomes dependent upon government dole, which in reality is provided, for the most part, by the productive sector of society. As Margaret Thatcher (who partnered with Ronald Reagan against growth of communism) stated:
The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money.
Does any of this pertain to present crisis in the United States? Of course, it has been gradually reaching to this point since the 1920s beginning with President Wilson and escalating during the FDR administration and now the Obama administration.
Too many who see this problem are quick to say that reform will never happen. Well, of course not, with that attitude. It will take We the People to reform ourselves (become self educated until the system teaches all children the truth about the Founders, our Constitution and its amendments, and then demand that only constitutionalists need apply to campaign for office.
The corrupted politicians and their political club is certainly not going to earnestly begin reformation on their own – it will take citizens to finally make a stand and demand that the media no longer be the mouthpiece for political clubs and their corruption, as well as examine the political and personal record of each candidate. Character counts as much as political experience. How a candidate voted in congressional action is important just as whether the candidates record shows that his/her words match his/her actions. It is all available on the Internet – the bastion of freedom that is now in peril because of the corrupted federal government via the Obama administration.
Just myself alone is nothing, just as you alone with just a few friends is nothing – but the People united together instead of bickering amongst themselves (“divide and conquer” applies here) WILL make a difference. It just depends if you truly appreciate the rights and liberties prescribed by the Founders in writing and their insistence that the government be limited, as also prescribed in the Constitution.
Now, for the liberal progressive media to not report this fact at a time when’re witnessing the financial collapse of Greece — and soon could be Portugal, Italy and Spain — is unconscionable. This is indeed a masterful manipulation of existing truth, which we must not be afraid to castigate as Goebbelian and Orwellian. And I’ve no fear in doing so. -- Allen West
