“The ‘looters’ credo’ has brought you to regard your proudest achievements as a hallmark of shame, your prosperity as guilt, your greatest men, the industrialists, as blackguards, and your magnificent factories as the product and property of muscular labor, the labor of whip-driven slaves, like the pyramids of Egypt. The rotter, who simpers that he sees no difference between the power of the dollar and the power of the whip, ought to learn the difference on his own hide!”
A persuasive case is made that BHO was elected mostly by guilt-ridden, white liberals who thought voting him would somehow absolve them of the sin of personally benefitting from free-market capitalism. Sadly, happiness ever-eludes white liberals, so they do their sincere best to punish themselves, and the rest of us too!
Their “progressive” agenda is really “regressive,” as it seeks to destroy free-market capitalism, the best anti-poverty program ever known, replacing it with Marxism, a thoroughly discredited political/economic system that, over the last hundred years, has failed everywhere it has been tried. Specifically, it has failed to better the lives of real people. However, it has simultaneously succeeded spectacularly in keeping career leftist criminals (most of whom have never earned an honest dime in their lives) in political power in perpetuity, as they viciously, brutally quash all opposition (after first disarming them).
Whether in the UK, Europe, South Africa, or the USA, liberal/leftist/progressive dogma invariably flunks, because it tirelessly, (but, oh so piously) advocates for old, bromidic, ever-miscarrying tenets.
There are three:
(1) Perpetual poverty
(2) Government-encouraged criminal violence
(3) Class envy and race hatred
I find it comical when HRC refers to millionaires at “they.” Gee Hillary, don’t you mean “we?” Comfortable liberals claim to “love the poor,” but only so long as they stay poor! Poor people, kept perpetually dependant on government handouts, can be easily intimidated, terrorized, and “managed.” Helpless, hopeless, dependant, feeble, defenseless, and ever non-productive, that is the liberal definition of “citizen.” In liberal theology, there is no room for a “middle class.”
The poor are kept poor through a welfare system that pays unmarried women and girls to get pregnant, have children, but never get married and have a family in the traditional sense. Such children are typically unloved, neglected, and abused. To no one’s surprise, they become unloving, neglectful, and abusive adults, at least the ones who survive childhood.
This discredited system is philosophically maintained through continuously-articulated denigration of the concept of personal, individual responsibility. From the president on down, liberals always blame someone else for bad results, never stepping up to the plate themselves. And, where there is no personal responsibility, there can be no personal initiative, nor personal ambition, nor opportunity! Bad individual choices are never the personal responsibility of the individual, so nothing is ever learned, and nothing ever improves. Everyone is a perpetual “victim” of someone else, someone that liberals don’t like, such as doctors, gun-owners, employers, et al. With such a personal philosophy, life-long poverty and misery are virtually assured. Our “land of opportunity” is now the “land of hopeless victims.”
Who advocate for an ever-growing, suffocating government, predictably want all privately-owned guns first “registered,” than confiscated, leaving their former owners defenseless in the presence of armed criminals. After all, “The more crime you have, the more government you need!” Once again, with no individual responsibility nor individual initiative allowed, all become completely dependent upon the government for personal protection, of course an impossible task. Cynically, liberal politicians are only interested in protecting themselves. “Gun-control” never seems to apply to them! Violent criminals are thus a valuable resource, used by liberals to keep everyone else perpetually frightened and dependent. Why else would BHO order the biggest jail-break in history, letting thousands of violent criminals out of federal prison? Most are already re-offending. In time, all of them will.
As noted above, comfortable liberals, in a display of nauseating hypocrisy, continually denigrate honest wealth, while hiding their own. The “wealthy” they claim, must be punished for not paying their “fair share.” In Ferguson, MO and Baltimore, MD, in modern-day versions of “Kristallnacht,” we see local business burned down by the block, and honest business people thus ruined. But, who feels sorry for all those evil capitalists, those evil private-sector employers? I notice no tears being shed by liberal politicians.
“There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack-down on ‘criminals.’ Well, when there aren’t enough real criminals, one manufactures them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But, just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed, nor enforced, nor objectively interpreted, and you create a nation of law-breakers, and then you cash in on ‘guilt.’”
Again, Ayn Rand
