You could call this a brainstorm or stream of consciousness writing–so it’s not well organized. But this came to me one evening and I had to put what I’ve learned during my lifetime to paper. Feel free to comment–I’ve got VERY thick skin. I know not everybody agrees with everything, but hopefully you’ll find some nuggets of wisdom:
Those who scream “Racism!” the loudest are more often than not racists themselves in search of a good excuse.
To a man, Americas founders dwarf any intellect that exists on the elitist left today; that’s why leftists hold their ideas in such contempt.
It is incredible how the Jewish community in the United States has turned its back on Israel. There is no more rabidly anti-Semitic movement in this country than the liberal left. Yet American Jews continue to blindly support their self-destruction in the name of Progressivism.
Regulation by those who write the rules is just another word for corruption.
“Justice” as it used today by the American left is just a slogan to shroud hatred, vengefulness and covetousness.
Those who preach that you do not care about the poor and downtrodden intend to make you the poor and downtrodden.
“Environmentalism” has become no more than a slogan of the socialist left used to destroy capitalism where it can and handicap capitalism where it can’t.
Words that inspire hatred, hopelessness, bitterness, and resentment, are far more debilitating than any whip or chain or shackle–for the body heals much faster and more completely than the soul. That is why what the left has done to the black community in America is so damnable.
Those who tell you that our country isn’t in peril when anti-free market forces are in charge are useful idiots who, in their complacency, become accessories to its destruction.
There are five types of leftist dilettantes in America today—those who inherited their money and know nothing of the effort it took to earn it; career bureaucrats; career politicians; career academicians; and those on the welfare rolls. These dilettantes have never been required to make anything work–their entire existence is based on the hard work of others–and their view of the world is simplistic and ideological. Yet they will tell you they are eminently qualified to run anything and everything.
Anyone who advocates the death of our country or countrymen has no right to call him/herself an American.
Anyone who publishes information that leads to the death(s) of American soldiers or allies, military or civilian, has committed an act of treason or, if foreign, terrorism, and should be treated as such.
True equality does not exist in the liberal’s world. It is a world filled with victims, intolerance, envy, revenge, and superiority–and their version of “equality” only means reassigning those who fall into each category.
When “the press” ceases to report the truth and engages in advocacy for personal, political agendas, it loses the right to be called “the press” and becomes nothing more than paid political blogging.
Those who preach “relative truth” don’t seek truth, but justification for wrong-doing.
“Peer review” is not science–it is politics masquerading as science.
If liberalism is superior to conservatism, why is it that liberals dream of a day when they can squelch all conservative voices while conservatives dream of a day when liberals will engage in an honest debate?
Anyone who says “the science is settled” on any subject doesn’t know the nature of science or the responsibilities of a scientist. A true scientist never declares science “settled.”
As the BP Gulf oil spill demonstrated, an abiding faith in God and His creation will trump even the best predictions of scientists.
In America today, the biggest industries are run tax-free–they are monolithic trusts and foundations that have used race, economic status, and the environment as fronts to justify the fleecing of the American taxpayer.
The government has no business determining who and who cannot be married–that is a religious ceremony consecrating a union in the eyes of God. Government can, and should, however, allow any competent party to enter into an exclusive social contract with another.
When someone promises to provide something for you that you should provide for yourself, you can rest assured they intend to use you.
When Congress passes laws that exempt itself, it makes those it is supposed to serve its servants.
“Fairness” to a liberal is little more than an excuse to commit the sins they pretend to find objectionable.
Those who advocate open borders are just as guilty of the exploitation of illegal immigrants as those who pay them subsistence wages.
The “border controversy” of today is not an anti- pro-immigrant issue–it’s an anti- pro-law enforcement issue. When the people, or Congress, or the Executive don’t like a law, it is their duty to change it–not ignore it.
Any faith deserves as much respect and deference as its adherents afford those outside that faith.
“Diversity,” as practiced by liberals today, is just a euphemism for bigotry.
Liberals find monopolies and oligopolies great things as long as they control them.
The left pretends to abhor violence except when the victim is a conservative.
As long as someone always tries to blame someone else for their failures, they can never hope to achieve adulthood.
“Racist” is nothing more than a leftist slur directed to any Caucasian who happens to disagree with them.
It’s easy to be a liberal–nobody wants to grow up.
The left has done more to damage the rights of homosexuals, minorities, and their other constituencies than any talk show host could ever imagine by politicizing the status of these groups and making advocacy for/opposition to their advancement more about politics than morality.
A Christian can’t judge whether a person is destined for Heaven or Hell—that is blasphemy—but a Christian can know that if or she is a conservative, there are millions of leftists in this country who believe he or she deserve to go to Hell. Such is the religion of the left…
Conservatives believe our rights are God-given—as do liberals. The difference is that liberals think “God” is a euphemism for “government.”
The Federal bureaucracy is far more in need of reform than any private business. Business is constrained by profit–incompetent businesses change or fail and the ownership suffers the same fate. The bureaucracy has no such constraints. The incompetent decisions made in the bureaucracy are indemnified by the American taxpayer who either sends his check or goes to jail.
The American people have the right to know where every penny of their tax money is spent.
No legislative item that cannot stand on its own should be added to a bill full of items that can. It is deceit and a breach of the public trust to do so.
A true free market will generate unimaginable wealth because there is no better system for culling corruption and incompetence. That’s why the left holds the free market in such contempt.
If your bank is too big for you to know that the man running it is not a crook, then maybe you need a smaller bank.
The difference between a liberal and a conservative where life is concerned is stark–a liberal is always looking for ways to end life–a conservative is always looking for ways to preserve it.
Liberals have no use for those who lack the capacity to vote and are more than willing to give those who do dominion over them.
The Federal Government’s responsibility to secure the border not only makes sense, but a strong case could be made that it’s required by the Constitution.
The most dedicated liberals in this country are those who’ve never been told “No”—bureaucrats, politicians, and trust fund babies.
When a politician tells you he’ll advocate for you, be sure to check the small print first.
America is not a racist country–but those who profit from preaching that it is wish it was.
The real “radicals” in American politics are leftists who argue we can continue to tax and spend at the rate we currently are and never expect the bill to come due.
The world of a liberal is a static one in which human behavior does not change, no matter what incentives (or disincentives) are introduced into the equation.
Liberals ask only one simple favor of the poor and uneducated—that they stay that way.
Public sector unions are tools of agitprops and an abomination to democracy—they organize those whose financial interests are diametrically opposed to the financial interests of those they are supposed to serve and offer no system of redress to the people.
“Nothing is free.” “You can’t get something for nothing.” The only free ride is one powered by one’s own self-reliance, initiative and perseverance. All who claim to offer free rides, without exception, are liars and thieves.
Socialism is the best way to strip a man of his identity.
Leftists are the most prolific and thorough projectors of their own behavior on the face of the earth–to know what kind of deceit and mischief they are up to, you only have to listen to the charges they level at their opposition.
Only God can know when life begins. Therefore, supporting abortion at any point of a pregnancy risks supporting murder in His eyes.
To a liberal, a weak national economy is not a problem—it’s a feature.
Social Security and Medicare are abject failures that have been managed based on political considerations. The only way to save them is to manage them based on economic considerations.
Liberals don’t hate America—they’re just embarrassed by the fact that it’s the most wealthy, powerful nation on earth—and they work day and night to change that.
The way to tell a conservative from a liberal when it comes to compassion and support for the poor is that a conservative will reach into his own pocket for situations he knows exist, and the liberal will reach into everyone’s pocket for situations he knows don’t.
There is a mythology to the left that is required to maintain their world view and anyone who puts that mythology to the test is declared a heretic and marked for destruction.
Any member of Congress with the temerity to call fellow Americans “racists” absent iron-clad evidence is not fit for office.
Those who promulgate the fantasy that government is, or can be, the engine of the greatest economy in the world are brigands and thieves in search of booty—nothing more.
There is far more “big business” on the left than on the right. But it comes wrapped in noble-sounding names and rather than produce and create, it survives on the consumption and destruction of what others have built.
The penalties for a legislator abusing the trust of the people should be the most costly in our democracy. Not sanctions or even expulsion–but incarceration, at the minimum, should be the cost, because abusing the trust of the people is nothing less than treason.
The leftist subjugation of the black community in this country can only be explained by a complete brainwashing–using hatred, bitterness, resentment, and entitlement, the left has manipulated the black community in this country to keep it poor, dependent, and waiting for a mythical time when a man can be born a certain color and automatically achieve success.
There are only three things required for America to succeed–an unfettered free market; secured borders and regulated immigration; and a government willing to get out of the way.
A conservative believes that the government exists to serve the people–a liberal believes that the people exist to serve the government.
You can know a person by the enemies he fears most–for leftists, God and the Constitution top the list.
