Rearranging the Deck Chairs on the Titanic

Last week I offered five simple solutions that could turn this ship around.

First, jettison the Empire to save the Republic

Second, declare our energy independence.

Third, end the de facto amnesty.

Fourth, end the centrally planned welfare state.

Fifth, grow the economy instead of the bureaucracy to bring back prosperity, opportunity, and hope.

Does anyone realistically think the two headed leviathan in Washington will implement any of them?  No matter who is elected the bureaucracy will maintain full speed ahead into the iceberg of collapse.  In other words these fixes may be easy to propose however they are impossible to implement given the current toxic climate in Chicago on the Potomac.

Look at the Planned Parenthood scandal for an example of how degraded our society has become.  Secretly produced videos clearly show Planned Parenthood leaders laughing and joking about harvesting the organs of babies and selling them for profit.  The supporters of Planned Parenthood respond by saying that the videos are heavily edited.  Then we learn they were edited to take out things like taking trips to the bathroom and ordering food and that forensic experts overwhelmingly find them authentic.  The advocates of abortion on demand do not dispute what is said they dispute the manner in which the information was obtained.

Progressives will argue for the personhood of chimpanzees because their DNA is a 99% match to human.  Yet they deny the personhood of babies in the womb that are a 100% match.  These types of dichotomies and absurdities among our ruling class remind one that hypocrisy is the tribute that vice pays to virtue.

Look at the current presidential demolition derby.

The Republicans clearly favor people who are not traditional Republicans.  After looking over their establishment, mainline Republicans and the rank and file members of the Party are asking isn’t there someone else?  I believe if Someone Else was on the Ballot in the coming primaries they could well win.  As it is, since they must choose from people actually on the ballot after dismissing him as a reality star the betting is beginning to move towards a Trump win.  Mr. Trump is a big man with big ideas, unfortunately most of these will need big government to accomplish and the hope for a return to limited government recedes a little further from the realm of possibility with big government advocates on both sides.

On the Democrat side we are witnessing the Clinton restoration and America is heading for a sequel to the Golden Nineties when character didn’t matter and White House interns were fair game.  Hillary, after her original courageous testimony concerning Benghazi summed it up in “At this point what does it matter?” continues doing her Whitewater stonewalling routine to the applause of her devotees.

The handwriting is on the wall and we may have truly reached the tipping point where whoever wins the Democrat primaries wins the election.  Eighteen States have voted Democrat in six consecutive elections with 242 electoral votes.  University of Virginia political scientist Larry Sabato said the hurdle for Republicans doesn’t look any better if you count the underlying votes by citizens, not just the electoral results.  “Democrats have also won the popular vote in five of the last six presidential contests,” Sabato said. “The demographic shifts heading to mid-century are all pro-Democratic.”

Add to this that the illegal migration invaders are being dispersed to red states combined with court ordered motor-voter status and what is coming is a tsunami of undocumented democrats to turn the red states blue.  We are nearing a mirror image of Chicago where the Republicans often don’t even bother to run a candidate for mayor because they have a hard time finding sacrificial lambs.

They have elections in China.  Everyone eighteen years or older can vote.  They get the chance to choose between a communist and another communist. This adds up to an election in name only or a distinction without a difference.

In America today we get to choose between one of two members of the twin headed party of power.  Whoever wins the government grows and more power is concentrated in Washington.  Clinton, Bush, Trump, or Sanders whoever wins the bureaucracy continues to wield extra-constitutional power and the Founders dream of a limited government grows dimmer.

Seeing what is happening to our American heritage is like waking up one day and realizing that eventually all of your prized possessions and all of your memories will end up in a land fill.

This all reminds me that a pessimist is what an optimist calls a realist.

Sounds depressing doesn’t it?  In the world we have little hope for change.  We are on an express to national suicide and the fix is in.  This is why I have written my latest book, Political Action Follows Political Philosophy.  This book was written because I believe once liberty is extinguished it may be generations before the light of freedom will again burn bright.  I wrote this book to be a seed for future generations so they will know what happened to the American experiment and provide the philosophical foundations for the rebirth of limited government, personal freedom, and economic opportunity.

Because, the vast majority of human action reflects the thoughts, beliefs, and feelings of the actor.  There have always been and there will always be those whose actions are erratic or divorced from reality.  The actions of this small minority are best ascribed to pathology not philosophy.  For the rest of us, we think therefore we are.  What we think about today we act upon tomorrow.

The Dispatches from the History of the Future contained in this book convey the basic political philosophy which I believe will one day re-inspire our nation to stride upon the stage of History with another round of liberating political action.

What‘s Next?

Now that BHO has decreed that deportations will cease and work permits and other privileges of legal immigration will be granted to those who chose to enter our country illegally what’s next?

In less time than it takes to say “Fundamentally transform America” the chorus of usual suspects, Charles Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and their fellow travelers will start saying “It isn’t fair for all these people to pay taxes and not receive the full benefits of Obamacare, and the rest of the social hammock. Then along comes voting. Of course thanks to President Clinton and his motor voter law if our newly legalized guests can drive they can vote already.

Here’s the plan: inundate Texas and Florida with imported voters and turn the electoral map blue for at least a generation. By then we will have a nanny-state bureaucratic yoke firmly in place on the neck of anyone crazy enough to continue producing anything that can be expropriated. Tax and spend will be refined into TAX and SPEND on steroids as what was once the land of the free and the home of the brave careens into the third world.

This reminds me of the people who will flee red tape strangulation and try to blend into their new found haven by demanding all the government services that were the catalyst of their previous State’s meltdown. As we discard our freedom for the shabby paternalistic embrace of a fuzzy warm Progressive dystopia our newly legalized guests will feel right at home. Our once super-successful nation will be that many steps closer to the failed states they have left.

For a long time the best practical advice I could give anyone asking how to succeed in America has been learn Spanish and get a government job. That may soon be progressed to change your name to Juan del Pueblo and get in line. Uncle Sugar is about to raise your standard of living for free while he charges John Doe to lower his.

Now don’t get me wrong I am in no way saying that the vast majority of Hispanic people are not hard working family people who want to better their lives. I love Hispanic culture and find español para ser un lenguaje muy hermoso, or Spanish is a beautiful language. However, there right ways to do things and wrong ways to do things. For those who have come here legally, welcome. For those who chose to come here anyway, not so much. It is the difference between inviting someone to dinner and how you feel about meeting their needs and making sure they are comfortable and how you would feel about someone who broke into your house sit themselves down at your dinner table and demanded to be served. As a matter of fact they want you to take the food off your own children’s plates and give it to them. That’s a big difference.

Just look at the imperial decree. It lists strictures on who this applies to and who it doesn’t apply to. If the Emperor has decreed that you must have been here for X number of years to qualify how many years do you think everyone will say they have been here? Since they were in the shadows, who knows, obviously we don’t.

Here’s a question that always bothers me, “If in order to gain citizenship you have to pass a written test on American History in English, why does anyone need a Spanish ballot?” Yet Spanish ballots are issued in all 50 states. Of course this is just like asking, “If you need a phot ID to get into the Democratic National Convention what is wrong with asking for a photo ID to vote?” If you ask either of these questions the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media brand you as a racist and marginalize you as a denizen of the radical right-wing fringe.

Was BHO’s imperial decree unconstitutional? Everyone knows it is. Are his examples of other President’s executive orders relating to immigration fait comparisons? Everyone knows they aren’t. Will anything meaningful be done by the loyal opposition? No. They are too loyal to the Progressive big-government tax and spend agenda of the twin-headed bird of prey which is our degraded two-party system.

So what happens next? Anything BHO wants. Our system of constitutionally limited government has run aground on the rock of a bureaucratically dominated collectivist self-aggrandizing central government supported by an oligarchy of perpetually re-elected hacks and their crony capitalist friends. The descendants of the colonists the great grandchildren of the Founders and Framers have become the vassals of an egomaniacal narcissist and a gang of two-bit jesters riding on donkeys and elephants in a parade to the ash heap of History.
