Dr. Feel-the-Need.

Now that doctors are being made into slaves, no one is safe. Which type of doctor is more dangerous? A. The kind of doctor who has had his property confiscated and is being told he can earn a portion of it back by working twice the hours for half the pay, based on patient demands? Or B. The kind of doctor who enjoys being put in chains, does so voluntarily in the interest of self sacrificing himself to the collective will of his looters? Imagine if your profession was subverted like this. Would you retire? Find a new career? Whats happens in your mind when you have been made "less able" by the parasitic hords claiming their needs trump your abilities? Do the goods and /or services YOU produce maintain the same quality? Or quantity? All things to consider as we put the screws to the able in the interests of the needy.

Two Possible Outcomes

-Last night congress passed what is possibly going to be the largest increase in government size & scope in American history. This morning, their hangover begins. Like a night out on the town, this pack of proverbial teenage adolecents are going to be racing to cover up their crimes, packing evasions of reality ontop of prior evasions of reality, with their proclaimations and decrees growing ever more irrational. Fix this, expand that, tweak this amendment, change that line of wording. Rub head, squint eyes, exhale, curse the very concept of gravity, and repeat.-
There are two possible outcomes of this bill. It either gets repealed as a result of massive public outcry, or, it stands and it delivers us what the morality of sacrifice has always delivered us, evil. If the bill stands, and is not repealed, it will (no doubt) be changed and amended several times. It may shrink a bit, before its ultimate expansion long term. It could be delayed for a time, before it comes back with a new vigor in a few years. It could also be expanded rapidly out the gate, then curtailed a bit later, to its original magnitude of evil. If the bill is repealed, and by this I mean 'in total", it will take a historic political will. It will take more than just candidates running "on repeal". It will take more than a political revolution at the polls in November, it will require a new guard of nightwatchmen, guarding individual liberty ever more as its enemies approach, and unlike other 'swings' to the right in recent history, the New Guard will need to be prepared to move on the offense, understanding that, no war, physical, or intellectual, can be won strictly 'on the defense'.
At this point, I won't write off either outcome. Americans don't take kindly to 'force'. Our government thrusting socialized medicine upon free individuals is at best, the very definition of impractical. At worst, an evil none can look at, much less address properly due to its intimidating magnitude, and gravity.

Should The Tea Drinkers Accept Earl Grey?

Earl Grey is the worst Tea, by far, that I have ever tried. It tastes like dryed & refried mossy tree bark. Is the Tea Party drinking it?
The Tea Party Movement often denounces socialism, and rightfully so. And often times defends already institutionalized socialism in the next sentence. A battle cry at a Tea Party has often sounded something like this..

"Do we want socialized medicine?" (crowd says) "Noooo!" "Do we want our childrens children in debt ?" (crowd says) "Nooooooo !" "Do we want to see them start cutting medicare, medicaid, & our social; security checks ?" (crowd says) "Nooooooooo !!"

Now while it is true that Americans have or are paying what amounts to 12% of their wages into social security, and should collect it instead of starve, this is not, by any means, something we should seek to "conserve" as an ideal retirement. If we are to stop moving to the left (as we have for a century now in America) we need to revisit the socialism security we already have. We need to ask if it is ok to force one generation to pay for another generations retirement. I say it is not ok. It is un-American, and if we keep the socialism thats already institutionalized in America, we are heading toward disaster.

I don't think illegitamitly passed leftist legislation will, in the long run, ever be stopped until we address "all" the wealth redistrobution programs current & proposed. We cannot fight 'proposed' socialized medicine by propping up 'existing' socialized medicine.

The messege to Washington "should & ought" to be : I have a right to exist for my own sake. And that a government that has slipped the Constitutional bonds of securing rights to action, by engaging in other activities, violates those rights.

The question is..will the Tea Parties do this? Or will they just slow down the long term leftward march of this nation? And will our indebted children, and their children, having gone through socialized education for years, as many of us have,and being worse off than us, be able to put up as vigorous a fight as we should & ought to put up? Or will they all be drinking Earl Grey, Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmmm...?

Transparency Comes to D.C.

Listening to Congressman Massas rant against Rahm Emanuel shows that, at least in the U.S. House of Representatives own gym, transparency is on the return. Its sounds like someone arranged to remove all the shower curtains in the Congressmans gym locker room. This was brought to light by Rep. Massas encounter with Rahm, who began yelling at him, while both men were naked. Massa mentioned how awkward having a political arguement with another naked man was. Much of Massas rant is available in audio at Brietbart. Sounds as though seperation of powers is taking a hit, but theres progress with transparency.
Democrats in the house must be asking each other..."whos next on the hit list?" No doubt, no Representatives will be dropping there drawers anytime soon, atleast anywhere near Rahm's reach.

A History Known Mostly For Tyranny

History is filled with men oppressing men, and though the United States is not a perfect place, the frequency and magnitude of the "oppressing" is much less severe here. I recently sat down, once again, to read the Declaration of Independence & The US Constitution. I thought about how different these documents are to other social contracts in most other nations. There is one big difference. Ours, are an upholding of Individualism, as sacred. The Individual comes first. This has to be key in the social contracting world of human beings, Individuals are rarely mentioned, but Individuals are,( in our documents of founding) held as god-like Kings. Masters and commanders of our destinys, I guess I could say, isn't it good to be the King?

Return of the Tea Party, Dallas Sun Tea

I love Texas. I have been there twice. Its one of the few states that has its own nation-like feel. Others would be Alaska, Hawaii, UP Michigan, Tennessee, and in a disasterous sense, California. The Texas Govenors Primary recently concluded, with Rick Gardisil Perry, the winner. Senator Kay Hutchinson gave a good effort, but is typecast as a Washington, or Party "insider", which may be fair. Medinas elusive interview (9/11 truther or not? ) with Glenn Beck I think had shown us, that not all Tea Party candidates are "a better option". So Texas still has Perry, which means most likely, we can add Gardisil Rick to the list of frauds in the National GOP Primaries for President in 2012, along with Tim T-Paw-Pragmatist Pawlenty, Govenor from MN, Mitt Socialized Medical Federalist Romney from MA & , Newt of the tiger Gingrich. These guys will stop, but maintain the Big Government ideas from DC. Sarah Palin may reverse it by 5 %, Bobby Jindahl, by 6%, who knows.
I think Ron Paul, as candidate, is done. No offense to the Paulers. I think Mike The Theo-crat Huckabee, is done.
I think our worse potential candidate however is not listed above, but has a grand plan, that is , former Gov. of Florida, Jeb Bush. If the GOP nominates this fraud, I will openly support Obama for a second term...that is, literally, how strongly I am against the concept of royalty, dynasty, and compassionate conservatism.
There are rumblings about a govenor from Indiana, I am still not very familiar with him. Sen Jim DeMint...do we need another Senator? And smooth operator, Paul Ryan, Rep. from WI. The problem I have with Ryan is the things he has voted for, and his pragmatic approach to reform, accepting the premise of the left, and working to draft bills to save socialism, from the socialists. I had once read somewhere that Ryan had read Atlas Shrugged written by Ayn Rand (Americas last founding father). Interesting, he voted for the bailouts under Bush, which makes him "an antagonsist" in the very novel he enjoyed. Is it ok to vote for bailouts, because the party boss said it was (Bush II)?
George, The Free Market Has Failed, Bush?
I advise tea party activists to fight another stunted swing to the right, as we saw with Ike'52, Reagan '80, and Newt '94, and work to self educate ourselves and the next generation on the fundamental principles of freedom as advocated by Ayn Rand in 3 of her most important books, 'Atlas Shrugged', 'The Virtue of Selfishness', & 'Capitalism, The Unknown Ideal'. Freedom, is not better because it is "a more efficient system", as many on the right advocate. A new right, (that needs to end our long slow rotting march to decayed leftist semi-existence) needs to adopt Individual Rights as its central purpose, that a seperation, not only of church & state, but of economics & state is the only solution. That governments purpose is to protect us from bad guys, in the form of police, courts, and strong national defense, and nothing more. A swing, any swing, to the right is good, but its still "a swing", a temporary fix. We need to permanently stop the century long leftist march of America. Propping the door open for the left by saving socialist welfare statist institutions thru "more efficient governance", is not the answer.
Where are the candidates? They simply don't exist yet. If Tea Parties decide to play strictly the "endorse the other guy" game, than in 20 years, Generation Zero will be expected to take up this fight all over, at which time we will see signs such as..." I'm still looking for 'my' job", " I want my 'benevolent' socialist candidate", "Premire Ryan for a fourth term", ect...
It only takes a few, very consistently, principled idealist, to change not just our 20 year course, but our century long course to death, and destruction. Our most powerful weapon, like the founders, is truth. As long as we aim for 1773, we wont end up with 1984, or '94 for that matter.

Thoughts on the poll, fed. gov. a threat?

CNN/ORC recently did a national poll asking if they thought the federal government poses a threat to their rights. 56% said YES. 44% said NO. Breakdown by political affiliation, 37% of Democrats said YES. 63% of Independents said YES, and 70% of Republicans said YES.

The Indep. & Republican percentages don't surprise me, but 37% of Democrats? Democrats have the House, The Senate, The Presidency, and over a third of Democrats see their own party as a threat to their rights? This can't translate to anything positive for the Democrat Party, politically, in the November elections. Give these guys all three branches of the Federal Government, and 18 months later they are lamenting worse than an average Republican in a Primary booth.

This poll result is ultimately a good sign of a healthy political knowledge. People are slowly waking up in America, though we still have a long way to go. Pro-regulation/class warfare has been bred deep into right wing opinion, and theo-crats burroughed deep are beginning to ooze out into the open. All this needs to be addressed. Plus, one of two political parties in a two party political system is still touting socialism, albeit cloaked as progressivism, or Democracy. This is 20 years "after" the fall of the Berlin Wall. Not good.

But moving...in the right direction.

Obamas nudge turns to tug.

America has always been a nation that gets what it asks for, even if it does not realize what it is it is asking for, or does not realize what it is getting. The strategy of "Nudge", which this administration clearly adopted (as well as others, ie; Alinsky) has shown signs now of the inevitable move from nudge, to push. We are at "tug" now, certainly beyond nudging, but a ways away from pushing. Meanwhile, Dallas has the first 2010 Tea Party. Here we go again!
