If we continue to fail to recognize where the battlefield is, there is little hope of winning the war.
The Elitists and the Radical Transformation of America By SavantNoir Friday, May 7, 2010
We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.Barack Obama, October 30, 2008
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.H.L. Mencken (1918)
Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have. Richard Salent, Former President CBS News.
News is what someone wants to suppress. Everything else is advertising.former NBC news President Rubin Frank
If your partner were to come home one evening and announce to you that he/she is 5 days away from radically transforming you, would it be reasonable to ask a few questions, such as: Why? Into what? How are you going to do it? Who is going to transform me? How radically will I be transformed? What will it cost? What benefit will it have? Will it hurt? (Are you related to Lorraine Bobbitt?)

After all, what could be wrong with preserving resources for the next generation? Why not limit consumption and reduce energy use? Why not abolish poverty and establish a global welfare system to train parents, monitor intolerance, and meet all our needs? Why not save the planet by trading cars for bikes, an open market for "self-sustaining communities," and single dwellings for dense "human settlements" (located on transit lines) where everyone would dialogue, share common ground, and be equal?
The answer is simple. Marxist economics has never worked. Socialism produces poverty, not prosperity. Collectivism creates oppression, not freedom. Trusting environmental "scientists" who depend on government funding and must produce politically useful "information" will lead to economic and social disaster. 3
ooooh, I feel some good rants upcoming...
BEHOLD THE BEAST!

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary." -- H.L. Mencken (1918)Democrat Woodrow Wilson was President in 1918, and of course was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize a few years later.
Hatred is the most accessible and comprehensive of all unifying agents. It pulls and whirls the individual away from his own self, makes him oblivious of his weal and future, frees him of jealousies and self-seeking. He becomes an anonymous particle with a craving to fuse and coalesce with his like into one flaming mass... Mass movements can rise and spread without belief in a God, but never without belief in a devil... Common hatred unites the most heterogeneous elements. To share a common hatred, with an enemy even, is to infect him with a feeling of kinship, and thus sap his powers of resistance... We have it from Hitler... that the genius of a great leader consists in concentrating all hatred on a single foe. "The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements" by Eric Hoffer [pp 85-87]Don't fret -- things look bad now, but they are going to get worse.
