When Fascism Comes to America


Many have called President Obama a Socialist, they are wrong. He is a Fascist, before anyone invokes Godwin’s law look at the facts. The left loves to claim that Fascism is a right wing philosophy but it is in fact socialism with the illusion of ownership. But that is what ownership in America has become, an Illusion every aspect of the use of your land or business has been regulated to the point that ownership itself is a mere illusion.

Where socialism sought totalitarian control of a society’s economic processes through direct state operation of the means of production, fascism sought that control indirectly, through domination of nominally private owners. Where socialism nationalized property explicitly, fascism did so implicitly, by requiring owners to use their property in the “national interest”—that is, as the autocratic authority conceived it. (Nevertheless, a few industries were operated by the state.) Where socialism abolished all market relations outright, fascism left the appearance of market relations while planning all economic activities. Where socialism abolished money and prices, fascism controlled the monetary system and set all prices and wages politically. In doing all this, fascism denatured the marketplace. Entrepreneurship was abolished. State ministries, rather than consumers, determined what was produced and under what conditions.

This is not new for the progressive movement it follows the same path of its Progressive predecessors who believed that they could force society to live their utopian dream by banning products such as Alcohol and smoking. We had Prohibition and Tobacco Bans early in the first progressive movements. They failed because they were overly intrusive all at once. On Smoking I can’t do any better then Dave Hitt did at his “Hittman Chronicles“. On Prohibition we see it every day with the tightning of DWI laws to the point that if you even use a mouthwash you are probably in violation. With the extreme takeover of the healthcare industry (1/6th of the economy) we can only expect this to accelerate.

I don’t think when Mitchell said those words but even the ACLU see’s the implication on freedom.

But it’s not only there that this Fascistic regime is attempting to control you life. Obama couldn’t get Cap and Trade passed so he used a regulatory agency the EPA to drive up costs for regular energy in order to force his “green initiative” Of course this will have a devastating effect on working class people making them even more dependent on the government which of course is the goal. But since its inception the EPA and the regulatory climate has been the enemy of freedom and free enterprise as shown by John Stossel’s illegal everything. Yes it’s a long video but it shows that people are thrown in jail not because they harmed someone but because they violated the protected interest of the political elite It also shows that people are stripped of the use of their property based on the whims of the government and they depend on the ability to out spend you and it was money extorted from you.

This was all exposed by Ronald Reagan fifty years ago.

Yes, Yes he did not mention Fascism but he put it bluntly here.

Why would a Marxist like Obama chose Fascism over Communism, well the answer is simple and Thomas Sowell puts it bluntly.

What President Obama has been pushing for, and moving toward, is more insidious: government control of the economy, while leaving ownership in private hands. That way, politicians get to call the shots but, when their bright ideas lead to disaster, they can always blame those who own businesses in the private sector.

We may have passed “A Time for Choosing” but the transition is not yet complete. We can take back America and restore the individual rights that we deserve.

Autopsy of the GOP


Today while listening to the Vicki McKenna show I found the last segment interesting. You can listen to the segment while reading the post. The segment was about courting college aged students to the GOP.


16 minutes in a caller said that the GOP should embrace the libertarian principles. Brian Schimming immediately chimed in stating that Libertarian principles are unpopular. Of course he ignores the popularity of Ron Paul in the last presidential election. Sorry Brian you are wrong on so many ways. Ron Paul drew crowds bigger then Romney and Obama combined.

The above picture was from the liberal bastion of California.

LOS ANGELES — Thousands gathered tonight at UCLA’s Strauss Stadium to show their support for GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul.

While a specific head count has not yet been released, it would not be unreasonable to suggest that as many as 8,000 attended. Dr. Paul himself acknowledged that tonight’s overwhelming attendance surpassed his Chico rally which took place yesterday; the Chico event drew 6,200.

“Last night we were in a different part of California up in Chico — we had a little rally up there — and they set a record with the number of people coming out. But the record has been broken today.”

Same thing happened in Florida.

Ron Paul’s We are the Future Rally drew an overflow crowd to the USF Sun Dome in Tampa Sunday afternoon. Event organizers at the Sun Dome, which seats over 10,000 people, had to turn supporters away to watch the event on television screens in overflow seating across the street.

In 2008, Ron Paul’s bid for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination catapulted the ten-term US congressman (TX) from obscurity into the national spotlight.

Paul’s philosophy of limited government, individual liberty, and rule-of-law resonated with a large and passionate segment of American voters. His platform of fiscal conservatism, foreign policy restraint, and civil libertarianism offered a fresh and interesting combination of policy positions to voters who felt out of place in the conventional politics of the two-party system.

A maverick who criticizes his own party with as much zeal as he criticizes Democrats, Ron Paul was shut out of the Republican National Convention in 2008, and held a separate rally in the same city.

I was a life long Republican who feels like Ronald Reagan felt about the democratic party when he left it. The party left me I did not leave the party. While the Republican party preaches limited government and lower taxes what they practice is exactly the opposite. They cater to mostly the same special interest groups. There is little doubt that the public at large has had it with both parties, they both spend like drunken sailors. (apologies to sailors, they at least spend their own money)

As Barack Obama begins his second term in office, trust in the federal government remains mired near a historic low, while frustration with government remains high. And for the first time, a majority of the public says that the federal government threatens their personal rights and freedoms.

Opinions about Congress, while little changed over the past year, also remain very negative. Just 23% offer a favorable opinion of Congress, while 68% express an unfavorable view. Favorable views of Congress hit 50% in spring 2009 but subsequently have plummeted.

For two decades between 1985 and 2005 Congress was generally viewed more favorably than unfavorably. The low point during that period came in the fall of 1995 – just prior to the government shutdown of that year – when 42% offered a favorable opinion of Congress. This is not a short term trend, it is a direct response to the modern paternalistic “Progressive Era”

government_trustRon Paul’s appeal is not that he wants to create even more “protected classes” He does not offer even more so called free stuff as the left does. What he does do is preach limited government and fiscally conservative views, but he also espouses the civil liberties that were guaranteed in the constitution.

Here in Wisconsin we see the assault on small businesses Like Roll Your Own Shops and small Dairy Farmers. We see the push for illegal searches of our DNA for the slightest infraction of the law.

Is this the version of freedom that the founding fathers had envisioned for us? Audrey Silk of New York Clash put together a video that highlights the paternalistic stance of modern America that former Republicans like me find chilling.

Love him or hate him but the likes of Ron Paul and other Libertarians stand for real liberty and limited government and the Main Stream GOP ignores us at their own peril. Ron not only talks the talk but walks the walk and his voting record reflects that. While Ronald Reagan was a step in the right direction he was not the last “true Republican” That prize goes to Barry Goldwater who defended free markets,individual rights,property rights and didn’t believe you could legislate mortality. Here is a debate between Barry Goldwater and socialist Norman Thomas.

Here is what the Republicans must do to attract the youth.

1) Right to work laws must not only include freedom from forced unionization but eliminate all of the unneeded licensing of most jobs. Do you really need a licence to be a bartender subject to the whims of local government? Barbers? Taxi cab owners? All of these laws are protectionist acts to limit competition and cater to special interest groups. If one has the ability that person should not need permission from the government to make a living. The free market will sort the good from the bad.

2) Don’t ever enact legislation in order to create a so called level playing field. On closer inspection you will find it is usually the government that unleveled the field in the first place. Repeal the law that created the problem rather then create even more regulation.

3) Actually stand for civil liberties whether you approve of the individual or the acts of the individual, as Goldwater said “you can’t legislate morality” and that means “equal protection under the law” not “protected class” where some have more rights then others.

4) Actually push for equal taxation, a flat tax or a consumption tax where everyone has equal skin in the game. No deductions no exceptions. Eliminate the corporate tax. In reality corporations don’t pay taxes, that tax is passed on to the consumer and a hidden tax on the poor and makes us uncompetitive with the rest of the world. The flat tax if implemented should be on all income including capital gains. It would be fair since it would no longer be double taxation through the corporate tax. It also removes the incentive to invest overseas and would promote investment domestically.

Common Core Equals Indoctrination


Vicki McKenna had Karen Schroeder founder of “Advocates for Academic Freedom” on her show today and confirms what many of us suspected, common core is indoctrination.



You can listen to the show here while you read an article done by Karen Schroeder. For years liberals have been pushing that we are a Democracy and that the constitution should reflect the will of a simple majority. Since many of us have pushed back stating that we are in fact a Constitutional Republic. Knowing this they are redefining republic. From her article.

They’re called entitlements for a reason: We pay into them.


I get a lot of my inspiration from my online debates and this is no exception. April 13,2013 TEA Party Perspective’s sponsored “Tax Day Pints and Politics” . On facebook I clicked on maybe and saw many familiar names none of which I have met but wanted to. I tried to find a way to get down there in order to meet many of my fellow patriots. When I found that it was impossible to attend the event I changed from maybe to no and found that facebook puts declines in a separate area. But again I found several familiar names among the trolls. Among these was Andrew Rogers, a leftist activist who tried to shut down Conservative Talk Radio so being me I engaged him. I pointed to the fact that the so called “entitlements” were what was driving our national debt and that they would eventually destroy our country.

The Founding Fathers Would be Shooting by Now


Now that I have your attention with a provocative title. Of course the leftist have a unique spin on this and also a hypocritical one.  Thom Hartman has a factual depiction of the original TEA party as far as it goes.

Of course Thom ignores the fact that that is exactly what most TEA party activist protest against.  Most TEA party activist are against “crony capitalism” in favor of true capitalism. But it is an over simplification of what actually happened.  While Thom mention the Townsend act he failed to mention the significance of it.  First England imposed a tax on paper, paint, lead, glass, and tea that were imported into the colonies. These were items that were not produced in North America and that the colonists were only allowed to buy from Great Britain.  As a result of the Townsend Act the patriots resorted to smuggling and the “Tea Act” was England’s response to that Smuggling. The “crony capitalism” enlisted by both parties violate every principle that the founders fought against.  From Obamacare which entailed backroom deals with “Big Pharma” and the insurance companies. to Seat belt laws which were lobbied for by the auto insurance companies.  You will find corporate lobbying behind almost every statist law including smoking bans.  If you watch John Stossel’s “Illegal Everything” and do a little digging you will find a corporate lobbyist behind every one of the laws passed.

Of course the abuse of power doesn’t end there.  There are similarities to what is taking place now and the “Stamp Act” and the “Writs of Assistance Act” These acts are the reason for two of the amendments in the bill of rights namely the third and the fourth amendments.

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Yet today our government through secret FISA warrants are Seizing phone and internet records .

dd>I include the following video because it is a humorous take on a famous quote by Ben Franklin.

Of course this all violates the constitution in every respect.  First the information is seized without any warrant whatsoever.  Remember the fourth amendment, particularly this part; “and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”  So according to our constitution warrant first seizure second a point that our lawmakers ignore. But then through the patriot act they created a secret court (FISA) not subject to review by the people to determine who may have access to this illegally seized information.But exactly how did our federal government amass such power.  For that you have to go back to the first progressive era.  Like all socialistic forms of government it’s all about control.  Prior to the first progressive era power did belong to the states.  There were not an alphabet soup of agencies that regulated every aspect of our lives. Such power is not possible without large amounts of cash. And under the Constitution that was not possible because under the Constitution money not used to pay for national debt or the defense of the nation had to be returned to the states according to census.United States Constitution, Article 1, Section 9, clause 4:
  No Capitation, or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to the census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken.United States Constitution, Article 1, Section 8:
  The Congress shall have power to lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

As you can see the way the constitution was intended everyone was to pay their fair share of government.  Enter the progressive era and the income tax.

United States Constitution 16th Amendment:
 The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

Of course you see nothing about a progressive tax in the sixteenth amendment which is by intent a socialistic redistribution scheme.  The progressive tax also had the benefit of shifting the tax burden on a lesser amount of people so less people would complain about the increased spending and expansion of government as they did not have to pay for that expansion. And of course the most offensive part of the 16th amendment “without apportionment” gave the federal government powers that it was never intended to have by using the tax money as a weapon over the states. If the states refused to comply with rules xyz imposed by the federal government, the federal government could deny them their share of the tax money.

Contrary to popular public opinion the majority of the powers were intended to belong to the states which is clearly stated in the 10th amendment.

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

So contrary to progressive thinking most of the federal agencies that have been created since the first progressive era have no basis in the constitution for their existence, unless the constitution strictly calls for the existence of the FDA, those rights and responsibilities belong to the states, the same goes for the EPA,BATF etc etc etc.  We have seen countless abuses of power in all of the agencies with the last with the IRS has

hassling TEA Party patriots and other conservative organizations.

Of course the stripping of states rights didn’t end there. The senate originally was intended to represent the states.  The whole state and not a populace view of the states.

The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, (chosen by the Legislature thereof,)  for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote.

Immediately after they shall be assembled in Consequence of the first Election, they shall be divided as equally as may be into three Classes. The Seats of the Senators of the first Class shall be vacated at the Expiration of the second Year, of the second Class at the Expiration of the fourth Year, and of the third Class at the Expiration of the sixth Year, so that one third may be chosen every second Year; and if Vacancies happen by Resignation, or otherwise, during the Recess of the Legislature of any State, the Executive thereof may make temporary Appointments until the next Meeting of the Legislature, which shall then fill such Vacancies.

Of course the intent of creating the senate was to protect the minority viewpoint.  It was to protect the smaller states from the more populace states. That is why each state has only two senators.  Each state has equal power at the table.  But this scheme also insured that the entire state was represented, not a populace view overpowered by cities with high population trampling the voice of the less populated rural areas. The power of urban elections can be clearly seen in elections such as president.  Obama won but the electoral map tells a different story.

It was the progressive 17th amendment that stripped this minority voice in favor of a more populace view.  Of course this led to the advent of the era when senators started representing special interest rather then the states that sent them there as pointed out by judge starting about three minutes in.

So while Thom Hartman is correct about the specifics of the actual Tea Party, it’s modern equivalent the “TEA Party” has much more in common with the original patriots then Thom suggests.
