Archive for November, 2012

Obviously and unequivocally, the cause of social fascist dictatorship has won the November 2012 electoral battle for dependency in America.  This very human war, characterized by a desire for freedom, personal responsibility and initiative on the one hand;  serfdom, personal irresponsibility and forced mediocrity on the other – constitutes a significant defeat for personal liberty, abundance and opportunity in 2012.  This should, however, come as no surprise to freedom fighters anywhere as this is the typical, if not expected outcome of early battles as borne out by a reading of history.

We saw in every single battle fought by Washington and his freedom fighters in the first year of our Revolutionary War with Britain the very same outcome.  Utter defeat and ignominy in every single battle;  until through prayer and a sincere request for Divine Intervention;  Washington and his troops crossed the Delaware on December 25th, 1776 and defeated the Hessian troops of Johan Rall at Trenton, then later on January 3rd again crossed the Delaware River, defeating Cornwallis at Trenton; followed quickly by the defeat of Cornwallis’ rear guard at Princeton.  These battles were the turning point in America’s war for freedom and led eventually to success in overcoming British tyranny on the North American continent.

We have since, to an increasing degree, incrementally capitulated this freedom to a different idea.  Freedom has historically been lost to the superior forces of a conquering tyrant.  Today, it is typically lost through ignorance and apathy.  It is lost either way and Americans have been forewarned by Khrushchev, Paul Warburg, David Rockefeller and others as to the efficacy of the latter method.

The ignoble lessons of history, when ignored, or worse when not even taught, tend to repeat themselves.  History has borne witness to the brutality of socialism and fascism in the brutal genocide of more than forty million by the Soviet Union;  more than 60 million in Mao’s China;  more than 12 million under Hitler’s National Socialism;  and more than 3 million under Pol Pot in Cambodia. God only knows how many more have been decimated throughout South and Latin America for the same destructive ideology.

The pathetic failure of socialist ideology, its resultant poverty, dependency, endemic hopelessness and spiritual devastation is further witnessed today throughout all the geographic areas previously mentioned and is further demonstrated throughout a declining Europe and with growing clarity across the cities of America.  Socialism, once imposed by force is now brought about through deception, uninformed ignorance and the alluring false promise of either obtaining much through doing nothing or through the immoral legislation of confiscation.

The illiterate, uneducated and lazy are attracted to such socialist schemes and are easily victimized by false promises cleverly packaged so as to sound enlightening, fair and beneficent.  There is, of course, nothing enlightening about using downtrodden ignorance to build political power so as to steal from the productive among us, distribute that abundance to the elite and leave the poor with nothing but their empty promises about which they can then do nothing, having abdicated freedom for serfdom through the voting booth.

Battles can be lost, but freedom can only be killed when we kill it within our own hearts.  Socialism is and will continue to fail in America as it has everywhere it is tried.  We will pay the price for our historic ignorance and our near future will not be easy or pleasant.  None-the-less, as the American experiment with socialism destroys itself, we will continue through the unfortunate spiritual and economic decimation of millions of our friends and neighbors to struggle forward in our quest for regaining the freedom we once won and will now have to take back.

I’m preaching here from an ideological pulpit, which I’m prone to, but as a practical matter – politically speaking – the time for ideological battle is lost.  Politically conservative victory, that is, the regaining of individual freedom in America must be fought on the battle ground of economics, not socio polemics.  If we insist on being right, we will lose.  If we want to win, we must DEFUND the bloated growth of dictatorial government through its pocketbook, which conveniently is us.

We must start small and through informative, educational field work at the grass roots level, explain to busy people, struggling to survive, that many useless and/or destructive things our government is doing are silly, wasteful and unnecessarily expensive.  It is critical that we as conservatives articulate conservative principles to people in a way they can easily grasp.  To be successful we must package inappropriate government spending in bite size chunks they can get their busy arms around.  Knowledge is power. We can learn from liberals that education (or in their case, mis-education) can be more powerful than guns.

As a tiny example; our First Lady often flies around on a very expensive jet with an incredibly expensive entourage.  For what?  This is ridiculous and such extraneous expenses having no national benefit should be defunded immediately.  Today, even the British Prime Minister flies commercial.  Certainly our First Lady can do the same.  This is not a haves/have-nots argument.  Wealthy people fly their own jets and stay at first class hotels on their own nickel.  Our First Lady flies and dines on our nickel.  They are not the same.  It doesn’t matter what folks do with their own money.  It does matter a great deal how Washington D.C. wastes OUR MONEY.

A second, somewhat larger example is our Department of Energy (DOE).  The DOE was created in 1977 to promote United States ENERGY INDEPENDENCE. The Department of Energy (DOE) is comprised of three Offices of Under Secretaries (Nuclear Security, Energy, and Science), the Energy Information Administration, the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, the Loans Program Office, 4 Power Marketing Administrations, 13 staff and support offices, 22 operations and area offices, and 24 research laboratories and facilities all of which together cost U.S. taxpayers about $44 billion in fiscal year 2011 and for which energy independence has not been achieved but is curtailed by ignorant ideological regulation.

Here we are, 35 wasteful years later, spending 44 billion dollars annually on DOE and the United States is more ENERGY DEPENDENT than at any previous time in our history.  DOE is an utterly  failed concept and must be defunded immediately.

A third expensive debacle is the Department of Education, originally started in 1867 to assist local school districts.  In 1979, it was put on Globalist steroids and today we have seen decades of declining educational performance and the near strangulation of American education by government sanctioned, teacher union monopolies.  We are currently wasting more than $77 billion annually on a Department of Education that is enabling the failure of American education, not assisting its success.  This useless department must be defunded immediately.  The education of our children is a critical  local concern, not a Federal playground for Globalist conditioning experiments or a license to steal tax payer dollars for special interest benefit.

In order for conservative freedom lovers to win, we must begin fighting our battles on the field of economics.  We must follow the money and win.  Busy people can understand common sense and can plainly see that wasteful spending is stupid and unproductive.  Take it to the money and forget D’s and R’s.  Conservatives will never win the popularity contest for votes, but they can promote common sense and fiscal sanity.  In doing so we will win the hearts and minds of decent voters across our country and will halt the disenfranchisement of hard working people and entrepreneurial business owners.

We know now what Obama does and doesn’t do.  He doesn’t do real work.  He accepts responsibility for nothing.  He is a non-stop litany of blame on every issue we have.   He can, as every other socialist is conditioned;  criticize, ridicule, demonize and tear down.  He cannot build or improve.  He loves Airforce One and the perks.  He will not make a decision even when the people who work for him have their own lives on the line.  He is a cowardly, selfish, small man without heart and a backwards looking view dating from the days of feudal serfdom as brought back to life under the new names of socialism, social justice and fairness.  Obama prevaricates incessantly and between lies, golfs and has taken 17 unearned vacations over the past four years.  His primary Executive activity has been giving pointless, repetitive speeches and raising money for his re-election so he can do more damage.  Over the past year and half or so, he has spent approximately 80% of his time campaigning and raising DNC money;  roughly 144 days of every 180.  Add in vacation time and what’s left for Executive execution of his office?

We now have President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, all brazenly lying and covering up their probable covert violations of the War Powers Act in running guns into Libya and Syria – to enemies who have sworn to destroy both Israel and the United States;  enemies such as Al-Qaeda, The Muslim Brotherhood an Ansar al Sharia.  The main stream press is disgracefully complicit in this horrific cover up, in which American foreign service personnel were left unprotected, abandoned and were finally and brutally murdered while Obama and his staff comfortably watched the attack on closed circuit TV in real time, while doing nothing more than cowardly issuing an order to stand down.  A very small Obama characteristically and as always, consistently voted present in time of people’s need.

Obama is characteristically again voting present regarding hurricane Sandy, excepting his Chris Christie photo op, which Democrats can be counted upon to deceitfully drag out every election cycle  for at least the next few decades.

I could go on, but listing Obama’s abject socialist failure, personal delusions and defensive lies along with our subsequent pain as citizen victims is getting increasingly pointless.  America is currently without leadership and may actually have a treasonous Administration in the West Wing of our White House aiding and abetting sworn enemies of the people of the United States.

Obama’s closing campaign pitch as leader of the free world is a pathetic, “voting is the best revenge”.

Romney’s closing campaign pitch is, “vote for love of country”.

What might Romney do?  He spells it out pretty clearly in his 87 page economic plan entitled, BELIEVE IN AMERICA.

An important early agenda item for Romney will be to revise our putrescently discriminatory tax code.  Romney proposes to eliminate the current U.S. Worldwide Tax System and replace it with a Territorial System as recommended by the Bowles-Simpson Commission.  The United States currently enjoys the highest corporate tax rate (35% for annual income above $335,000) in the world.  Our archaic Worldwide Tax System means the U.S. is the only country left in the world to double tax (worldwide) its international corporations.  This means that profit earned by U.S. firms overseas is first taxed by the country in which the business is conducted and is then taxed by the IRS a second time on any monies repatriated back into the U.S.  The end result is that the money does not come back into the United States, but is instead reinvested overseas.  Why would any company reinvest 65 cents on the dollar in the U.S. when they can stay overseas and reinvest 100 cents, post foreign tax, on the dollar? Romney’s plan to replace the worldwide tax system with a territorial system will make American businesses more competitive in global markets and will boost job growth significantly.

According to Bloomberg in March 2012, approximately $1.2 trillion dollars is currently being held and/or being reinvested outside the United States  as a result of this double taxation policy.  Eliminating the double taxation would likely bring 100’s of billions of dollars back into the U.S. to be invested here at home – ALL FOR FREE – THAT IS, AT NO COST TO THE TAX PAYING MIDDLE CLASS.  The ripple effects of this money coming back into the U.S., amplified by the rate of turnover will spur business growth, produce millions of jobs and will result in more tax revenue for our obscenely bloated Federal government.  As citizens we are foolish not to demand this double taxation be dropped.

A second important Romney agenda item;  assuming the Republicans can take control of the U.S. Senate from career criminal Harry Reed is to get rid of Obamacare along with its 15 member, unelected rationing panel (as included in Obama’s 2009 Stimulus Slush Fund Bill and since renamed at least three times to hide it from voters), more than 150 new government agencies to be inserted between our doctors and patients, more than 15,000 new IRS Agents having illegally legislated, direct access to our private bank accounts and the $716 billion raid on Medicare…and on and on and on.

A third Romney agenda item is to dial back the insane regulatory fiasco currently raging in the United States.  Under Obama, a new Federal regulation is enacted every 2 minutes;  24 hours per day; 365 days per year.  Many of these, if not most of them are anti-small business in nature.  Many of them are contrived by giant business monopolies who are able to stifle competition through preferential government regulatory intervention.  A prime example is Dodd-Frank, which is bankrupting independent community banks and setting them up for purchase by the Big Five Banking Monopoly for pennies on the dollar.  Dodd-Frank is a disgrace to free markets and our Constitution.  The added cost to business and consumers today, of Federal regulatory compliance is nearing $2 trillion annually.  This is like a 13% hidden tax on every product an American citizen buys.

Federal government regulation under Barrack Obama’s Administration is the living embodiment of failed Mussolini style Fascism.  It does not work and must be brought to an end.  Obama believes as Benito Mussolini did, that we the people must have every aspect of our lives controlled by an enormously powerful government married to powerful, government sanctioned business monopolies.  It’s just a more sophisticated form of serfdom.  Dependency and freedom do not co-exist.

U.S. Regulatory costs plus corporate taxation costs put U.S. exporting businesses at a (35%-20%) + 13% = 28% disadvantage in global markets before they even produce anything.  {I have subtracted the approximate 20% corporate rate that most countries today are using.  Russia is currently at a maximum possible Federal & Regional 20% rate.  Russian 2012 Tax Code }  Our current 75,000 page tax code is literally insane and astonishingly abusive in a discriminatory sense;  by which I mean that government enabled, insider conglomerate monopolies such as General Electric pay virtually no tax at all.  These government sponsored monopolies corruptly use the U.S. tax code and regulatory agencies as their own control mechanisms for holding down competition, limiting free markets and manipulating prices – all of which are illegally protected by our own self aggrandizing Federal Representatives.

The fourth and final Romney item we’ll quickly summarize regards trade agreements.  Since the last U.S. trade agreement signed by George W. Bush in 2007 – that’s five years ago;  the European Union has negotiated 16 trade agreements of which 9 were executed.  China has negotiated  15 trade agreements and signed 4 over the same period.  Obama has negotiated zero and signed zero.  As I mentioned earlier;  Obama never actually works.  He talks…and talks….and talks.

I don’t know if Mitt Romney will be our generation’s George Washington and Paul Ryan his John Adams, but I hope and pray it will be so.

1600 Watch asks that you strongly consider casting your vote for the American people and Mitt Romney;  not for Obama and revenge.
