Further Proof That Everything Is Backwards - Freedom is Now a "Radical" Idea*

I guess when you've gone off the deep left end of the political spectrum, anything that resembles the Founding Principles would appear "radical" to you. There's so much wrong with E.J. Dionne's article over at the Washington Post that it deserves a good Fisking.

The Stoopid is strong with this one.

It turns out that there is at least one question on which Mitt Romney is not a flip-flopper: He has a utopian view of what an unfettered, lightly taxed market economy can achieve.

He would never put it this way, of course, but his approach looks forward by looking backward to the late 19th century, when government let market forces rip and a conservative Supreme Court swept aside as unconstitutional almost every effort to write rules for the economic game. This magical capitalism is the centerpiece of Romney’s campaign, and it may prove to be his undoing.

Magical capitalism, eh? Well, it did work wonders for us and the rest of the world, right up until this Magical Marxist administration got ahold of it.

But Romney, unlike Clinton, is not offering a program through which government would take specific steps to solve the problems he catalogues. Instead, he is calling on voters to share his faith that our difficulties would go away if the state simply got out of the way, allowed the market do its thing and counted on the success of the successful to lift up everyone else.

That's the way it works, E.J. You see, when capitalism is allowed to operate, this thing called "wealth" is created. Most people know this as "money." When government decides to stick its nose into the private sector to "solve specific problems," we wind up with the type of economy we have today: the new normal of 10% unemployment, stagnant GDP growth, record numbers of Americans living in poverty and requiring food stamps for the first time in their lives, just to name a few things.

But wait! There's more! Here comes the money shot. Brace yourself, Effie...

This is Romney’s true radicalism.

So, in the multi-colored, kaleidoscopic, unicorn-and-Skittle-powered view of Progressives like Dionne, freedom is now a radical idea. Well, I guess after years of imposing more and more restrictions on our economy, what was implied through governmental policy has now been spoken out loud.

E.J goes on to paint Romney's supporters as "The Other."

They may not like government very much, but they are also wary about what capitalism does when the watchdogs fall asleep.

No, we're not. We are wary when we see unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats over-regulating what was once a free market. To death.

They don’t cotton to further tax cuts for the wealthy. They reject the idea that worrying about how unequal the rewards in our society have become is the same thing as being “envious” of those who have done well.

We've seen just how un-rich you have to be to qualify as "wealthy," and we know that line starts just about the place where individual Americans decide to start their own small business. As for your heartfelt concern for "unequal rewards in our society," I politely call Bullshit. Just in case you haven't looked outside recently, E.J., life isn't fair. There have always been people with more or less than everybody else. Our system was originally constructed to provide an equal opportunity for all to succeed, not to guarantee equal outcomes, as you suggest. Equal outcomes, as we have seen during the past three years, means equal misery for all.

They are fully onboard that opportunity and not “entitlement” is the American way.

Yes, yes we are.

We've seen failure up close and personal. Most of us know at least one family member or friend who has lost their job, their home, their marriage, and their life to the Utopian fantasy of Socialism embodied in this administrations' policies. That is, if it hasn't already happened to us.

So there you have it, folks. It's official now, straight from the Progressive Pravda Media Machine in Washington: Freedom is now a radical concept.

Thanks for the heads up, E.J. We will all begin to act accordingly. The first thing we'll do is vote out each and every Communist/Progressive we can find and point out the massive, epic failure of you and people like you to impose your Socialist principles on us.

We aim to make the word "progressive" as  vile and disgusting a term as its goals for this country are.

*It's also proof that Progressivism is a mental disease.

Rep. Allen West Gets It Right: Progressivism = Communism

Florida Congressman Col. Allen West recently raised a few eyebrows when he pointed out that there are Communists inside the halls of power in Congress. Of course, this is common knowledge to just about everyone who has studied American politics. I pointed it out here: America's Political Cancer - Progressivism.

Here, Col. West educates a gaggle of reporters and refuses to back down on his assertion.

When I was young and dirt was new, it was well known that we had enemies. These days, not so much. Our country and our way of life have always been under attack from those who would control us, subjugate us or destroy us. Many in the world can't handle the idea of freedom because they themselves are slaves of evil, and this evil compels them to crush freedom and enslave others through any means.

In our case, Communists rebranded themselves as Progressives in the early part of the twentieth century, as Col. West notes. After all, how could you, as a modern person, possibly be against progress? Sounds like a good thing, doesn't it?

However, the reality is far from benign: Progressives have sought to gain power by attacking us from the inside, and now they and their anti-American agenda is on full display and the results have been a disaster of near-Biblical proportions.

Col. West is correct to call a spade a spade. He is saying what many of us have known for a while: Progressivism is the American flavor of Communism.

This is why it's important for you to educate yourself before you enter the voting booth. Know who your candidates are, study their background, assess their record and most importantly, if they are Progressives, vote them out of office.

"Justice for Trayvon" - Mobile Man in Critical Condition After Hate Crime Beating

OK, Eric Holder, where are you? Will your inaction in this case (a clear hate crime) condone this sort of reprehensible behavior? Have you forgotten your Oath of Office?

Al Sharpton? Jessie Jackson? Rev. Wright? What do you have to say for yourselves?

Guide to the Constitution Online

Here's a very handy online reference to our Constitution from the Heritage Foundation. I highly recommend you bookmark this site. I like it so much, I'm putting the link in the sidebar.

While you're exploring the world's oldest Constitution, be sure to mouse-over everything, as the links aren't underlined. This will connect you to articles surrounding the history of the relevant section.

We are living in  time when unscrupulous, power-hungry despots have infiltrated every part of Washington. They have no clear understanding of the plain language of our Constitution, and cannot fathom what it means. The enduring principles enshrined in our Constitution are timeless: that governmental power must, of necessity, be limited in order for the citizens to remain free.

Today, this notion is currently being called "radical" by our enemies on the Left who view the Constitution as some sort of outdated document. Theirs is the sophomoric view that the Constitution is a "living, breathing" document that can have its meaning twisted and gnarled into whatever outcome is desired to fulfill their goal of increasing power over your life. At the same time, they ignore the principles of limited government, in effect invalidating the supreme law of the land while claiming to uphold it.

In the introduction to this wonderful new tool, the Heritage Foundation cites none other than House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Mentia) as one of the prime offenders in the Progressive Left's quest to bypass the law and institute state control, such as I outlined yesterday in the beach post.

Back in 2009, then-House Speaker Pelosi was asked about the constitutionality of Obamacare and she replied, “Are you serious?” For some, it seems, the meaning of the Constitution is irrelevant when it clashes with their political goals. But the Constitution has something to say about it if we take the time to read it, study it, and understand its meaning. And that’s what is all about.
Yeah, Nan, we're very serious about our Constitution, unlike you.

Public Parks Are No Longer Public

They told me if I voted Republican, we'd be living in a police state where everyone has lost their freedom.

They were right.

Roping off national parks to the public and limiting opportunities for recreation, which in some cases were at the request of environmental groups, is a growing trend that lawmakers say they will examine during an oversight hearing of a House Resources subcommittee on April 27.

Examine? I have a better idea: how about rescinding whatever ridiculous Diktat from the Obama administration caused this, and firing everyone who is responsible for it.

When did we start allowing unaccountable, unelected, radical, left-wing environmental wackos to run our country?

"If I Wanted America to Fail"

Someone once asked, "If Obama was trying to destroy the country, what would he be doing differently?"

Heh, Obama Stars in "The Dog Eater"

I found this video over at The Noisy Room and thought y'all'd get a kick out of it.

Obama's Debt Depicted as a Road Trip

Good video. Re-posting it here from AoSHQ to help spread the word.

The level of debt that Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are directly responsible for should be criminal. What we should be seeing from the GOP (who control the national purse strings in the House of Representatives) is an immediate return to 2006 budgetary levels at a bare minimum.

Should Romney Submit His Birth Certificate to Congress?

Let's do a poll of our own, shall we?

Should Mitt Romney submit his birth certificate to Congress?

Until I can find a good, free online poll to use, please vote in the comments.

A simple "yes" or "no" will suffice.

Michelle Obama Gets All Biblical and Stuff In Praise of Barack

This is disgusting. Not only is it false and wrong, it's blasphemous.
"I am so in," Michelle Obama said toward the end of her remarks. "I am going to be working so hard. We have an amazing story to tell. This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light."  

Bullshit. Barack Obama isn't even the beginning of a pimple on the ass of a scribe, much less anyone else in the Bible.

Moochelle, I see your Biblical reference, and raise you two:

Acts 20:29
For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.
Acts 20:28-30

Matthew 7:15
[ You Will Know Them by Their Fruits ] “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
Matthew 7:14-16

Psst, Don't Tell Ace, but There's a War on Morons

It's satire and snark, naturally. Here's a taste,

For decades now, the Democrat Party has rested easy knowing that government-run schools were turning our nation’s children into morons. The young and undereducated have become our most reliable voting bloc. The leftwing corporate media have been all-too-willing to reinforce their selective stupidity through half-assed reportage. This successful program has always portrayed Democrats in the best possible light, while demonizing conservatives and Republicans as heartless villains out to impose some vague form of neo-fascism on the poor, helpless masses.

David Axelrod Endorses Mitt Romney for President!

Here is David Axelrod, Obama's Astro-Turfer in Chief, in his own words.

I couldn't have said it better myself, Dave.

CAP Fights Against Voter ID, Yet Requires ID to Enter Their Offices

Hmmm, now let me get this straight: The radical, left-wing, George Soros-funded Center for American Progress doesn't think that voters need to produce a photo ID, yet they require everyone to produce a photo ID to enter their offices?

Know Your Enemy

Always remember that Barack Obama launched his career in the home of these two, with the anti-Christ George Soros looking on in approval.

I'd like to remind Little Billy that we let our military personnel board planes first to respect their sacrifice to defend the freedom to speak out against the government, something I heartily recommend that he try in some other country, just to see what happens to him.

Obama Causes Our Energy Prices to Skyrocket

The next time you pull up at a gas pump and see the price has risen again (awarding you with this weeks prize: a cut in your paycheck!), you can thank President Obama. His cancellation of the Keystone Pipeline will be part of the cause.

In an interview with former U.S. Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) in D.C. yesterday, Harper explained that Canada will now seek to expand its export market to Asia and will also cease to supply oil to the United States at a discounted rate.
 (Emphasis mine)

And here I was, thinking that he'd never get elected after this little soundbite made the rounds to the general populace:

Silly me.

Even though he was talking about electricity rates, he was basing his plan on the now-disproven Hoax of Man-Made Global Warming.

It's still his goal, the truth be damned. Is it November yet?

Obama Campaign Turns Off Credit Card Address Validation Again

This is a violation of Federal Election Laws, the same as it was last time.

Shock: Obama Again Disables Address Verification on Credit Card Donations.

If you hven't already, call your representative in Washington and inform him or her of this violation. Flood their phones. Burn up their fax lines. Send emails.

Stop this.
