He ordered the centurion to keep Paul under guard but to give him some freedom and permit his friends to take care of his needs. Acts 24:23
America has become two separate countries or actually three. We have one side that wants to stay a free and open country, a second which wants to be a Soviet style communist State and the group in the middle who dont care. Throughout history we have had two types of people, those who want to take care of themselves and those who want to be taken care of. Those who will accept a certain amount of risk and those who wont and these are the two groups who are fighting it out. The bad part of being in a democracy is those who want to live under state control and a Soviet style of gummit can simply vote those who do not into being their subjects.
The liberal mindset not only has been brainwashed into believing they cannot succeed without the state programs they will not accept any risks in their jobs or retirements. The public worker has become a protected ruling class who no longer has to be concerned with economics or other peoples conditions. Their jobs are guaranteed as is their retirement and benefits by those subjects living in the outer circle. Since this is an easy sell as a politician they have built a solid voting Soviet class of people who are willing and eager to subjugate the rest of the people to their preferred lifestyle.
We have an entire class of people who are so worried about their own self interest and need to avoid risk they are willing and able to enslave the rest of the country. Once we reach the point we are at there is no escaping chronic unemployment and poverty. We will have decades of the current real unemployment rate which will continue to hover in the twenty percent realm. When you reward people for not working while punishing others for working with taxes, Obamacare and excessive regulations you are destined to encourage higher and higher unemployment. The final piece to the financial disaster is an education system and media which encourages the communistic lifestyle and vilifies the free market individualistic society. People who are self motivators are painted as evil greedy monsters who only make their money by stealing from the poor. They are never promoted or congratulated for a job well done but are vilified just like the Stalinists of old Russian who were always hating and purging the Bourgeois.
The risk adverse mindset is as foreign to the self achiever as the self achiever is to the public employee. In the old days the public workers would give up current pay for the understanding they would have a payoff when they retired. Those days are past as the public employee makes nearly double what the risk takers make and have a guaranteed pension which far exceeds anything in the private sector. They have managed to control every facet of the decision making process through unionization and taking over the media, academics and bureaucracies. They now own the halls of power by working their way inside all of the most critical positions of decision making. They have become a giant circle of propaganda and gummit rule which now only has to convince enough people they care about them or scare them into submission to maintain their power and control.
What we have now are the people who are happy to be cattle in feedlots forcing those who want to be productive to not be productive. They are forcing the ambitious people to live in feeder lots with them whether they want to run on the range free like buffalo or not. The feedlot class believe and in a way they know they will be taken care of the rest of their lives and are not willing to give up that security under any circumstances. They have been told they can never succeed on their own so even if they wanted to they would not risk the chances of losing their safe existence by going against the common thought around them. So they will support more regulations, more private sector destruction and deeper enslavement so their jobs in this overgrown cattle company will continue to flourish.
When George Bush Jr was President and the unemployment rate was running under 4% the Japanese economy had an unemployment rate of over 12% as did the rest of the Socialist world and just as we do now. The cost of Socialism is high unemployment to pay for the expanded gummit jobs. Either the money will flow to the programs or salaries reflected in running those programs or the private sector will have a chance to expand. Under George Bush the jobs expanded and we had a seven year recovery until we expanded DC and are still suffering through the malaise we will have until if and when things change.
Now America has a problem, the cattle are in charge and forcing us all to live in the feeder pens whether we want to or not. It is their job now to make sure we stay in those pens and have little or no chance of escaping them. They have the control and the votes to make that happen for the rest of our lives and the only way we can escape is to beat them at their own game. We need to convince the third group that living inside those pens is a subsistence existence with continually high unemployment with little or no fulfillment in life. Between them and us we have enough people to overthrow the cattle class but it is going to take a huge effort against some very powerful forces placed in some extremely strong positions. This is going to take some hard work, determination and new ideas outside of the medias control. There is a path to full employment and George Bush was on it briefly before the people in power on both sides pulled the rug out from under him and put us in the Godless communist canyon we find ourselves in now. We need to get back on the Bush path to freedom.

In 1984, Orwell describes the “prole” sections as pretty much left alone. They were allowed their dens of iniquity, and went on as they have for centuries.
The propaganda battle was aimed at the intelligentsia and people of means, in order to consolidate power and remove competition.
We call it Crony Capitalism where a giant corporation is give a larger pen and fed more feed to avoid risk. There are big fat cattle like GE and GM.

It’s also called fascism, where the gov’t picks its favorites to run semi-privately (under supervision), and nationalizes the rest.
A sad part of the mis-information of the public at large is that fascists are considered on the right, akin to conservatives, when it’s quite the opposite.
Survival of the Unfit
Charles Darwins Theory of Evolution (often referred to as The Theory of Survival of the Fittest) describes the positive effects resulting from any pressure on an animal species that removes the least fit among the species and allows only the most fit of the species to reproduce. Most of us are well aware of this Survival of the Fittest theory, but few are aware that Darwin also makes mention of the negative effects resulting from unlimited reproduction of a species least fit when the weak, the lazy, and the stupid are left unchecked.
We like to think otherwise, but our species, Homo sapiens, isnt that long out of the trees and the same laws of nature that affect all of Gods creatures apply equally to us. If we were to observe any other species that had been allowed to reproduce without limitations, we would know immediately what the consequences will be.
Whenever the weak; lazy; and stupid of a species is allowed to reproduce unimpeded by predators that feed off the weak; lazy; and stupid, they soon outnumber the strong, productive, and intelligent. When the weak/lazy/stupid dominate the gene pool, the entire population becomes weak/ lazy/stupid, and then the population collapses.
When this collapse occurs within human populations, its referred to as a Malthusian Collapse. Thomas Malthus, a Nineteenth Century Economist, thought these collapses were caused simply because past civilizations had reached a point where human populations could no longer produce sufficient food supplies to feed themselves, but he never pinned down the exact reason for these food shortages.
We now think these collapses of past human civilizations have occurred whenever the unproductive weak/lazy/stupid greatly outnumber the strong/productive/intelligent of the population. In other words, the majority of the population becomes too lazy to perform the work necessary to provide for themselves and whats left of the strong/productive/intelligent refuses to continue to do it for them.
These collapses have occurred at frequent intervals throughout human history, and Western Civilization is, in my humble opinion, currently on the cusp of one of these collapses.
Well said. It is hard to argue we are on the cusp when you simply look at the economic numbers. We are in free fall and the gummit is throwing us an anchor.

Public workers should lose the Vote while in public “service”. This would correct the obvious “Soviet block” vote problem.
In a sense, they are already empowered outside of the Vote by their activities at public expense, so why should they wield even more power over the citizens who are paying for all of this?
I would think that service in the armed forces in defense of the country would restore the Vote to the nation’s defenders.
The Dems are doing that exact strategy in reverse. They hire more Soviet block voters and expand their power.
We all know what eventually happens to cattle in feedlots.
There is a path to full employment and George Bush was on it briefly before the people in power on both sides pulled the rug out from under him and put us in the Godless communist canyon we find ourselves in now. We need to get back on the Bush path to freedom.
Bush was a good President, but not a great one. He was just walking us more slowly toward a socialist world order (Medicare drug plan, No Child Left Behind, etc).
Exactly, imagine if he would have begun to reverse those programs and what the economy would have been doing.

Well stated. We are outvoted by an unholy coalition of people who want to be managed and the people who aspire to manage them.
This is beyond what politics alone can solve, this is at heart a moral and spiritual sickness.
Freedom requires first of all a people who want to be free. It requires people who are morally prepared to govern themselves and are prepared to pay the costs of their own decisions.
Once you no longer have that consensus, its all mafias and kings from that point forward.
We live in a world in which people will gladly give up their own freedom in return for the right to rule their neighbor, and in return for a promise that they will be spared the pain that is inherent to human life. In exchange for that promise they will demand a king and they will get one.
They won’t get the relief from pain or the prosperity they were promised, but they will continue to choose a king for as long as the promise is renewed because having a king to blame is better than blaming yourself.
That is exactly right and the gummit has become the king until it turns into a dictator.

And where are the churches? Do they not dare speak out against the evil in the White House? They’re afraid of having to pay taxes if they speak out? Or are they already in the feedlot?
Sad thoughts but very true.
Re food shortages: the Soviet Union could not feed itself although it was in the same temperate latitudes as the US. Ditto Zimbabwe today, after the productive farmers were driven off of their land.
You got that right except that this is a whole new form- Crony Socialism,
...or what I like to call “Obammunism”: All the worst of crony captialism, combined with all the worst of socialism
