Reagan taught us how to defeat the Marxists. Marxists are easy to defeat if you defund and bankrupt them.
Marxists win ONLY if you agree to play along. Their system is easily overwhelmed by demand. Anytime you give something away for free, there is always a run on that item. This leads to rationing.
It has happened in every Socialist nation. North Korea is constantly in cycles of starvation because they work at the minimal level with no incentive while placing the maximum stress on the government to provide. Same thing in Cuba, the Soviets fell and all the Eastern Bloc nations. It collapses in Afrika all the time.
The formula for failure works every time. It won't have to get to that point before these young I-Pod dummies who that think Socialism is the answer and voted their Messiah see that this shit ain't gonna work. How about we work THEIR young asses into the dirt - supporting US? See how long THAT scenario works.
But we have to demonstrate it - harshly. Set 'em up, and set 'em up for failure. After all, they have worked 8 years trying to fail this administration. What's 8 more? Its the only way to counter generations of dummies brainwashed by the education system, government, and media.
They think it will be a Utopia - it will - for them, if we agree to go along with it.
They depend on the producers to produce for the ruling political class to engage in their feel-good centralized redistribution of wealth.
Think about it. Overload their system with demands for maximum free stuff while producing little to no taxable revenue and Marxism cannot stand on its own. There is no incentive.
"Demonstrate an absurdity by being absurd"....
Ride the Democrats in congress daily with calls for "where's all my free stuff and why aren't you paying my mortgage and all my bills like you said".
Capitalism stands on its own due to incentive and freedom to make your own decisions.
If 100 million American just decided to only buy the bare essentials, save, earn just enough to keep you in the lowest tax bracket for two years - they simply could take out the revenue the Marxists need to run their system, and the Marxist model will fail.
Look, either way we are in for pain. Elections have consequences. Either under a successful Marxist state that we help in further reducing our freedoms, or under a scenario of FAILED Marxism.
We can go one way, cooperate and make nice with them, and help them build their power. The other way is to make them flounder and either prove Marxism can stand on its own (it can't) or admit the failure of this great experiment in America.
Nothing moves without money and people willing to be the producers in society. Why should you be willing, if they are just going to turn around and redistribute it to others?
They need us to make it work. They can't do it without us. Tell me why they should be rewarded after defrauding the election and their treatment of the last 8 years?
Cut 'em off. All of 'em. Declare them written out of your will - your will to work for them under these conditions.
Staying power. Reagan didn’t quit.
And a very optimistic form of patriotism. Reagan never disparaged his own country.
Strength through superior fire power.
Keep your guns nearby and your ammo dry.
And Atlas Shrugged.
Obviously Reagan did not defeat Marxism. It simply went underground to fight another day. And now...a marxist has gained control of the US. Doesn’t look much like a defeat to me.
First. He believed. After that, it was just details.
You have good points.
One way or another, Socialism will be demonstrated and people will see the light.
Anything we can do to speed up this process and shortening the learning curve is worth thinking about.
Sacrificing much for two or four years may give us a future. If we don’t, we have no future and neither do our kids.
Quit spending! It’s for the children! ;-)
Alternative method for defeating besides defunding?
A bankrupted federal government is part of the marxist’s plans. You have to take EVERYTHING away before you can give ANYTHING back.
Can you say EURO????
He bankrupt the Soviet Empire they could not keep up with our willingness to defend ourselves to whatever cost was necessary, their ideology was never defeated,
the plans they set in motion 40 years ago came to fruition last night, watch this video.
It came back
Hot Damn...Now we are talkin my language. We gotta vote...NOT PRESENT. Pull back. Do not help them. Stop them cold. Drop out. Let them screw it up so bad the moochers will beg us to help...But Noooo we do not. I like your plan.
Starve government schools of their pupils, remove your children from liberal colleges.
Do not join the military, do not reup.
Hide your income.
this is how they did it
Exactly!!! We can do this easily. I am going to start an organization to demand all of his promises. This will expose socialism for the joke it is. I’m thinking ads and protests. FIGHT WITH ME BROTHERS AND SISTERS!!!! more to come on Naked Emperor News
(Let's face it, we could use a few laughs courtesy of the late, great Phil Hartman)
I like this idea. I could call up Carl Levin, give him the name of the bank where my mortgage is held, and ask him how soon to expect the check. I think this would be a great letter-writing and phone-calling campaign.
Just do it totally matter-of-fact and straight-faced, like good old Aunt Jane innocently inquiring whether or not little Barry received the gift I sent, since I haven't gotten my thank you yet. I ignored most of what Obama said during the campaign, but I am sure we could go back and find the laundry list of promises.
I’d really like to see a clear plan for this that I can follow.
How do you fight half of America actually believing either that Obama isn’t a socialist or he is and they prefer to live under a socialistic society?
What again is the weak link in socialism? I believe its the ability of the government to actually deliver the goods they promised.
Will your gas and mortgage bills be paid by the government? what if something happens domestically that prevents that?
A year from now you who voted for Obama is living on a government stipend much like welfare, you have no desire to work, you probably cannot afford a new TV much less a car, forget about bling or even eating out.
Forget the American dream because you gave it up so you can sit in your house not being productive, you are now part of the dry rot of a future America.
I am on the verge of praying for a nuclear attack in the United States right now, any terrorist attack, something to wake up America.
You have made your bed, now sleep in it. That is unless you have to share it with your neighbore.
