We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
What has become apparent over the last month is that what was once a financial problem has been hijacked and turned into a political fight for what the left calls “economic democracy”. A leveling of income and a suppression of innovation by the capitalists replaced by a purity of Marxism that even Karl Marx would not acknowledge. After all he stated he was not a Marxist.
The most haunting specter are the fairly consistent polls showing that there is a majority support for state the likes of which has only produced mass killings, gulags, deprivation and scarcity among the countries that have tried it. This can only be attributed to the slow accretion of socialism in this country beginning with FDR. Any educated person on the FDR administration knows he was enamored of Stalin and that his administration was riddled with communists. FDR set the stage and the stage quickly filled with “useful idiots” ready to gain the socialist worker paradise.
Obama was tutored by a cadre of communists and adopted their philosophy, combined it with a smooove street savy and telepromptered his way into the White House. The coalition of fringe kookballs this country of the free allowed to grow and gain access to federal largess (ACORN, et. al.) managed to reach a mass large enough to reach the tipping point whereby iy became chic to support the unknown 0bama.
Now in our ignorance we are going to pay the price. His power must be stopped during the mid term elections or we are headed for a civil war.
this nation has been mesmerized and paralyzed by political correctness, white guilt , self loathing and good old fashion stupidity...
why or how did a generation become persuaded that what we stand for, is not worth fighting for.
most evil is rooted in envy..did we listen to those who envy and hate us?
