Independence Day

I just heard a news report that the liberal side of America is calling July 4th a Republican propaganda holiday. This idea shows just how far we, as a people, have fallen. It is difficult to get excited about being separated from an oppressive English government as most US citizens are happy with an oppressive US government. A large percentage of Americans can not remember freedom and liberty for all. A big portion of society thinks that human nature can be improved and that the Constitution of the United States is antiquated.  How can such people be expected to celebrate the hard won freedom they are discarding at every turn?

The United States is based on the idea that each person has God given rights to Freedom, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. All these concepts have been corrupted by 19th century European anti-monarchism. The founders of the USA were the first serious anti-monarchists and realized that the tendency of those trusted to govern would be a corruption dictated by human nature. So called European thinkers denied this from the mid n 19th century on (if not sooner). They were and are wrong.

The United States is based on freedom from government. That basis appears to be disappearing. Human nature tends to laziness, and oppression. The siren song that government can cure all ills is obviously a delusion embraced by many. It is interesting that most so called activists have never had a job but live by donations from agenda driven wealthy dominators. It is amazing how self righteous these parasites are when spending other people's money.

It is time for a new independence movement which encourages a return to the idea of personal responsibility for one's life and actions. This includes the responsibility to life a moral life: no stealing, no murder, no assault, and an exhibition of courteous behavior. Alas, this seems to be a pipe dream.

Most Americans, and other populations as well, are so poorly educated that they cannot think for themselves. It is a pitiful state of affairs and one that will not get better until it gets much worse.

What to expect next

News junkies are in heaven these days, unfortunately there is little news and a lot of gossip. You folks can expect more of the same. Is it possible to be informed in today's super heated political climate? It is difficult but not impossible. One must carefully peruse news sites, blogs, television, and magazines and then use one's critical thinking capacity to decide what is true and what isn't.

The tough thing about such activities is that most people seem bereft of thinking ability. Much of what is read is simply based on emotions, wishes, and misinformation twice digested. Such is the state of affairs that many people seem to live their lives in a permanent state of rage. Why should this be the case?

Liberals are rabid because they are poorly educated and leave the thinking to their leaders. Conservatives are passionate but passive; they have good manners. It is very likely that any violence perpetrated upon society will be based on liberal tenets and performed by masked liberals pretending to be intellectual firebombers. One only has to look at the videos of any WTO conclave city.
Liberal thinking is adolescent. Anyone watching and listening to Bill Maher, Barack Obama, Charles Schumer, et al must wonder how long it will be before these folks complete their high school life. What passes for humor or thought in this group is worthy of 10th graders.

Take note that anyone that disagrees with a liberal is simply howled down. There can be no exchange of ideas or civil discourse. In fact if one wants to understand liberal thinking and therefore forecast liberal behavior simply listen to what is said and reverse it. Whatever liberals accuse conservatives of planning or doing is actually what liberals are planning or doing.

The famous accusations against Bush, name any, are now being realized under Obama. There is much less liberty in the USA now than ever in its history. It is going to get worse. Liberals feel not think. So what can we expect in the near future?

There will be more attenuation of personal liberty and revocation of rights based on the idea that the government knows best. There will be increased surveillance of dissidents on the basis of public safety. There will be less economic freedom and more economic hardship. The government cannot create real jobs.

Only private enterprise can create jobs that are the result of wealth creation Government jobs are ancillary to real work. The government of the United States has become extortionate in its redistribution of private wealth; the net result in the long term will be national poverty. With less than 60 % of the population paying taxes it is left to the productive portion of the private economy to carry the rest of the people. This can not last. Yet liberals seem to think this is ideal.
