Emotional Tyranny


It is both fascinating and tragic to witness the extent to which Marxist Ideology has been successful in convincing millions of people that their best interests lie in subjugating themselves to the rule of a few over the many. In pursuit of equality they institute bigotry. In the interest of comfort they curse their progeny with slavery. Nothing is real in the land of the ‘useful idiot’. They preach freedom while they steal liberty. Through federal restriction and regulation on everything from stock ponds to light bulbs to soda pop they propagate oppression in the name of kindness. They preach equality for one group while trouncing the religious liberty of another group. Inequality in pursuit of equality. They protest immigration law by ignoring and flaunting the law; oblivious to the fact that in a land where laws are flaunted no one is safe from government oppression. Oppression to save the oppressed. Only the ill-educated and emotionally undeveloped mind could possibly buy in to such backward thinking. And yet, they do so by the 10’s of millions right here in the Land of the Free. How is it possible for that many people to be fooled so readily? I have a notion what may be the culprit.

Most right-thinking Americans are already aware the state of public education is abysmal and no amount of dollars from the Treasury will fix it. However, this cannot be the entire story. People leave school, they enter the real world, they learn anew. No, there is another element that is retarding the normal learning process. There must be something much deeper within the human psyche that allows such a visceral rejection of all reason and logic in favor of the progressive leadership’s cause du jour.

To understand this one must first understand liberal ideology and where its tenants are based. First, I hate the word liberal as it is used in contemporary political discourse. In America, they started as Progressives until the people learned their true aim was regressive and anti-American. Then they changed to Communists until Joe McCarthy exposed them and the nation showed its avarice towards anyone who would dare destroy the Peoples Liberty. So of course they simply changed their moniker to Liberal; another classic misdirection, using the old form of liberty-loving individuals like our Founders to foist slavery upon the People. Just like Progressive’s weren’t progressive; neither are Liberals liberty-loving. Many have lately taken to calling themselves Progressives again so sphere of obfuscation is complete.

What are they really? Of course they are simply Marxists. Now your college professor will give you a very narrow definition of Marxism in your ‘Everyone Must Hate Conservatives’ class. But Marx and Engels had no such narrowness to their ideology. As the Marxist Bible, The Communist Manifesto was printed in alternate languages there were always prefaces or post script comments that are very revealing. Marxism was always meant to be fluid; to adapt to different cultures; to be incremental and stealth.

“The practical application of the principles will depend, as the Manifesto itself states, everywhere and at all times, on the historical conditions for the time being existing…” Preface to the 1872 German Edition - The Communist Manifesto

For the sake of brevity and to proceed to the finer point, let us put Marxism ‘in a nutshell’ as they say:

·        the right of the Collective supersedes individual rights

·        the Proletariat should seize the means of production (in the American rendition this is done by the State FOR the collective) [the 1872 German edition clearly states that the Proletariat could never seize and properly administer the means of production]

·        a progressive tax structure; redistribution of wealth; rob the rich to help the poor

·        diminish property rights; a further tool for the redistribution of wealth; no one should own land or have rights to the fruits of their labor

·        equality of outcome in lieu of equality of opportunity; a Utopia that will never exist; FORCED equality (irony is lost on them)

Now, any rudimentary observance of modern Liberals proves clearly that they are indeed simply little Marxists under a new banner. In public they scoff at such a comparison despite its clearly apparent truth. This is telling as they know they must LIE to sell their snake oil. The professors in your state colleges are not nearly as shy. They will openly embrace Marxism with the old stale argument, “…if it was just properly implemented, we would all be better off.”

Okay, we have clearly demonstrated that it is simply Marxist Ideology that we are up against. So, the important point for this discussion is how do they implement same? It has always been true that Marxism is divisive in nature. It has always been the Proletariat against the Bourgeoisie. One citizen fighting another; this IS Marxism. Offensive fighting comes from hate which comes from fear which comes from ignorance. The root of communist insurgency is demonstrably emotional in nature. This is at the core of all modern Marxism; human emotion used to stir the People into fighting one another; thereby allowing the State to control the People, ‘for their own good.’ Divide and conquer. Sun Tzu would be proud.

And finally, this brings us to my notion. In order for virus of Marxism to successfully invade a healthy population, it requires an ignorant and emotional base. Ignarus Semino Dominatus (Ignorance Breeds Tyranny). To be ignorant one must ignore facts. What are the contributing factors to the emergence of such a large base within the populace of a republic; otherwise free and educated? Once we understand the hierarchy of the emotional element within Marxism, a clue emerges. Like a Sherlock Holmes mystery, a single fiber upon a lapel can lead to the solution of a complicated case. What is our single fiber which explains how an otherwise educated populace can act so ignorant?


Or in this case the lack thereof. Love is the strongest of human emotions. Its counterpart Hate is a close second. As we have discussed previously, hate comes from fear and ignorance. But love is the strongest and is natural to all humankind. Imagine if you will, a populace which feels void of this most important human emotion? Imagine the desperation and fervent search to fill that void within the human consciousness? Literature is rife with tales of the daughter whose father was distant and cold, or merely absent, who seeks out older men and typically falls victim to the abusive sort. Attempting to fill a chasm within her soul she is blinded and susceptive to control. I propose that we have a populace bordering on a majority that is consumed by the thought that they are not truly loved. They desperately seek something to fill the vast void within them left behind from a childhood in which they believe no one truly cared for them. Their early lives become a quixotic fight to find something to supplant their desperate need with comfort and hope.

It may be from the indifference and selfishness of divorced parents, many of whom play their children against one another. It may be from upper middle class families who struggle through high taxation and regulatory oppression with dual incomes thereby forcing the mother from the home, her children raised by schools, grandmothers or other surrogates. It may even be as nuanced as so-called helicopter parents, who in attempting to fill their own chasm of abandonment, smother their children with oppressive attention which is transparently selfish. “I’m a good parent” printed on their forehead alerts the child to the attendant lack of true love for the child and self-serving intent. Whatever the avenue, and we today have as many as an entire world of New York City’s; our children are growing up feeling like no one actually cares about them in a fundamental way. Tragically there are far too many who will use this emotional suffering to control these people.

And here you have the root of modern American politics, epitomized in the constant campaign of Barak Obama. Every speech he gives is towards one purpose only; to further the mantra that he cares about you and conservatives do not. He loves you even as he cancels your insurance. He loves you even as he steals from the People’s Treasury. He loves you as he destroys the greatest economy the world has known. He loves you as he raises rates on utilities making the poor even more destitute. He loves you as he diminishes your nation around the world allowing violent Islam to profligate. Obama turns economic disadvantage to utter desperation for the Black community yet he loves them; and they love him. Only complete blindness to the reality and deplorable effect of Barak Obama’s philosophy, the degradation of capitalism and American Exceptionalism, could allow him to succeed in implementing same. Only the strongest human emotion will allow this blindness; (the search for) love.  Mitt Romney loses an election; not because he isn’t brilliant, not because he doesn’t understand economics, not because he doesn’t love Liberty; not because he wouldn’t make us more prosperous; not because he wouldn’t make us stronger; no…he loses because a sufficient number of American voters believe he doesn’t care for them personally.

The American people are easily convinced that a truly grass roots movement of normal working folks whose only real purpose is to reign in oppressive government and restore the U.S. Constitution’s limits of federal power, are hateful racists; because ‘they don’t care about you but Barak Obama does and that’s why they are against him’. Not only does he love you but he is the only one who does.

The American Liberal Voter is the battered woman of so much literature; desperately searching for someone to replace a lost childhood that can never be restored. Politics becomes a sickening game of lovers and haters. We love you. They hate you. Now put some ice on that; I promise I won’t do it again.

There is nothing stronger than Love. Jesus Christ gave His very life so the entire world could be saved of their sins. Such is the greatest Love of all. Such is the power of that love. A childhood void of the love of mother AND father,  void of the pure love of Jesus Christ, is the fruitful ground upon which tyranny is grown. Marxism = Hate yet it is sold as Love; even as it destroys all it touches. Love is blind…and so is the modern Liberal.

Third Party Not A Democrat Victory


A true Patriot is not loyal to any group other than fellow Americans. Some of those may not even want your fealty to their Liberty but one must fight for them nevertheless. We fight for our own by fighting for others. We owe no loyalty to a Party. Particularly one that no longer stands on it's own principles. Many so-called pundits today threaten that a conservative third party would simply ensure Democrat victories in perpetuity.  Nothing could be further from the truth. But that is not really surprising. Truth is patient zero in the viral infection of Marxism.

Let us first be clear about Marxism. The primary tenets of Marxism are a progressive tax code, diminished property rights, government control of the means of production, (currently accomplished through tax and regulation) and the diminishment of individual rights for the perceived good of the collective. Now if you don't understand that this perfectly describes 98% of Congress and 100% of Democrats, then you need not read further. Your ignorance is your bliss and you may go. Kiss your chains and tell no one you were once my countryman. For those who do understand, consider:

It is perfectly clear to anyone who can withdraw themselves from the self-serving bubble of federal politics why the Grand Ole Party would not want a conservative third party. It is not that Democrats would win; it is simply that they (current GOP) would lose. Let's assume for this intellectual exercise that the T.E.A. party were to create a new national political party, we'll call it the TParty. This party would enlist candidates across the nation to run for office as Representatives and Senators. In conservative districts, the current GOP representative would choose whether to stay with the GOP or run as a TParty candidate. If the conservative vote is split; it simply means that neither candidate properly represents it's constituency. In most cases the most conservative candidate will be clear and they will win, GOP or TParty notwithstanding. In moderate districts, TParty candidates would create a new clear choice to some long-time Democrats who are less likely to be happy with the National Debt and the Liberal long-term fiscal strategy. Some of these districts could also go to TParty candidates.

In the end you will end up with roughly the same split with the House of Representatives. The only difference is that you will have a block of TParty candidates who are not beholden to the GOP establishment. These members will naturally caucus with the GOP; they certainly will not caucus with the Marxist Party that the Democrats have become. Again the difference is that as a block they will force the GOP to write more conservative legislation. A win, win, win for America.

In the Senate, there may initially be a cost to the GOP. However, the GOP has already proven incapable of controlling the Senate. In fact, when the GOP did briefly hold the Senate in recent years they squandered that opportunity by voting for more government, more regulation, more infringement of civil rights and more debt. Instead of tax and spend we got cut taxes and spend. However, once again, conservative TParty candidates will force GOP candidates to either embrace conservative principles or lose. What will occur is the People will finally have a CLEAR choice in candidates. The Marixst Democrat or the Patriot constitutionalist TParty candidate. The moderate GOP candidate will quickly become irrelevant. This is what they fear the most.

Once again the numbers in the Senate will remain mostly the same. It is always possible that it could sway one way or the other depending on current fiscal reality, i.e. ObamaCare. Once again a solid block of TParty Senators with no loyalty to GOP establishment will force a clear vote on bills by both the GOP and the Democrats. The GOP will be forced to choose; vote with the Constitutionalists or vote with the Marxists. Again, for America a clear win.

The only real possibility of a third party being a positive for Democrats is in the election of a President. If the TParty ran a presidential candidate, and nothing says they must do so at least initially, it could be a net positive for a Democrat nominee. There are exit polls that show some third party candidates actually pull from Democrats more, but regardless let us look at recent history. If the GOP is simply going to put up another liberal Republican aka Dole, McCain or Romney, then they are likely to lose anyway. The simple threat of a conservative third party presidential candidate may force the GOP to nominate a true conservative so that Americans will have a CLEAR choice in electing their national leader. Legislation passed by a TParty supported Congress will in all likelihood be signed by a future GOP president. Another win for Americans. It may be unnecessary for the TParty to run a presidential candidate initially.

The true threat of a third party to the establishment GOP is the potential for the GOP to eventually become irrelevant. This is their greatest fear. National politics for the current GOP has simply become about power, influence and money. They want the power, they want the contributions, they want the committee assignments, they want the corruption that lines their pockets and makes ALL politicians rich beyond their means to do so in the private sector. Losing all of that is their real fear. All those who oppose a conservative third party simply out themselves as Liberals/Progressives/Marxists/Democrats or whatever nom du jour that one chooses to apply to a statist politician these days.

We as Americans have a unique quality the world envy's beyond all else. We owe no loyalty to our rulers. We only owe loyalty to our Constitution and our Liberty. I will no longer support a candidate, a pundit or a Party that does not respect the Constitutional limits on federal power. To do so is to be disloyal to future progeny; mine and yours. I will fight to protect their Liberty whether they want it or not. What they do with it afterwards is on their head, not mine. Let us pray that there are enough Americans out there who share my faith and loyalty to our Founding Documents. May God continue to bless the United States of America!

Where's Your Plan?


When you have to lie about everything that you stand for, it makes one develop a skill in turning words around to trap your detractors. This prevarication prowess is then passed on to one's minions and over decades a rather impressive rhetorical repertoire is developed. In fact, it is simply based on one of the principles of Marketing; turn negatives into selling points. As all Marxist ideology must be 'sold' since it is in fact destructive; little difference can be found between the Socialist policy purveyors and the late night television product pimps and pitchmen. Consider:

  • It has a flashy name that sounds useful
  • The grandiose presentation of benefits
  • Bad side affects are only muttered in speedy talk or posted as text that only ants can read
  • There is someone or some entity that doesn't want you to have it
  • The high price has been slashed just for you, you will actually save money by spending same
  • The sense of urgency is established as you must act before midnight tonight...any night
  • The duplicitous pitchman is energetic, passionate, attractive and appealing
  • It is presented as something that you really, really need
  • What will you do without it?

Nothing in the realm of politics has needed more 'pitching' than the recent debacle known both affectionately and disdainfully as ObamaCare (The 'Affordable' 'Care' Act of 2009). One of the recent tricks of treachery that tyrannical Socialists like to use is the question, "Where's your plan?"
The trick of course is that they are not asking for your plan to stomp out Communism once and for all. Nor are they asking for your plan to discredit Marxist Ideology in all of it's permutations. No, they are asking what is your plan to further the 'Progressive' takeover of the American republic.

The trick is the wordplay to trap opponents and appear endearing to the useful idiots Rush Limbaugh so astutely calls the 'Low-Information Voters'. The treachery is the attempt to minimize the discussion to only that which furthers their destructive agenda, enslaving the people and seizing control of all aspects of  human behavior; all of which can be harnessed to the rubric of 'Healthcare' management.

Of course the simple and sublime answer is, "I have no plan to enslave the American People to an all-controlling government, Sir. I respect the Peoples' freedom of choice, freedom from intrusion and the U. S. Constitution too much for that." But, alas; I don't know that we have anyone in politics today save a precious few who have the desire or intellect to say such.

Other more pithy possibilities:

  • My plan is to defeat Socialism before it destroys this nation
  • My plan is to respect the rights of the People and the Several States
  • My plan is called the U.S. Constitution. You would think a 'Constitutional Scholar' had read it.
  • My plan is freedom and prosperity for all Americans who are willing to work for it.
  • My plan is Liberty and free-market capitalism which has provided more healthcare for the people of the world than any system known to Man.

And on and on. And yet, you never hear this on the news do you? Why is that? Either the GOP is too stupid or too corrupt to do so. You decide amongst yourselves. I'm tired of trying to figure them out.
