Conservative In PA's Profile

Virtue, Liberty & Independence no longer exists in Pennsylvania. Resist & Revolt!

If there are any doubts to my opinions that I post given my tendencies toward rhetorical devices such as hyperbole, sarcasm and down right crudeness, then here are my views in plain straight forward language.

Why I am a Racist - Black Live Do Not Matter

No, I am not going to apologize for being white. I am going to embrace it. BLM, leftists, and many mainstream white Democrats and Republicans believe in this notion of systematic racism and white privilege. I do not. The majority of my life I was not racist. I treated all people with respect. But now there are some that say I am racist simply because I am white, and there is nothing I can do about it.

They want to take away my freedom and liberty. They want reparations. They want anarchy, socialism, communism or worse. They want to destroy our Republic. These people say black lives matter while not caring about black lives or any other lives. They are the true racists and it is all in the quest to transform American into something it was never intended.

Out of the deepest recesses of my heart, I have searched for the Christian love to solve this problem. The only peaceful solution I can find is to teach. The most effective method of learning life's lessons is through experience. Make no doubt about that. Those lessons stick. Given where our nation is today, we need to make lessons stick for generations.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if all Americans could be grateful. That they recognize the they have the blessings of freedom and liberty. That they can make their lives prosper to the level that their talents and efforts allow. Wouldn't it be amazing if all Americans, even those with the least, understand that there is no poverty in America and that they live in the richest nation on earth. Finally, wouldn't it be great that all Americans simply recognize what is required to secure God's blessings. These were once simple things and easily understood by most.

I contend that there are people who do not know these truths is because they are lazy and/or ignorant. They have convinced themselves that life is so intolerable that they are entitled to so much more and without any effort. That it is okay to just take from the productive. It is a derangement. They need perspective. They have no idea what true racism is. They have no idea of what poverty is really like. They have no idea how valuable education is. They have no idea how what it is to lack opportunity.

I am willing to do something about this. Quite simply, I want to teach them a lesson that they can pass on to generations to come. That is why I have become a racist. I am doing my small part to ensure that there is a contrast between what their lives once were and what their lives will continue to be. They will lament in their old age about the good old days prior to BLM when America wasn't racist. Perhaps they will reflect and understand the reasons why America became truly racist. But I doubt that, because I am now racist and I don't believe that is possible. It is a proven fact that the black man is inferior to the white man. It is not possible for black men to have higher order thoughts. They lack intelligence and act purely out of animal instinct. Any ability to think that they possess comes from whites interbreeding with them. That is a God awful thought. The mere thought of a white fornicating with black is tantamount to bestiality. It is sickening.

You see, I can act like racist. It is only important for me to know when I am acting. I can turn it on and off like a light switch. Just understand where I am coming from. And if you disagree, simply ask what are you doing about solving the problem. Everything we have tried in the past has failed. Why repeat those failures?

An Old Friend is Heard

Glenn Beck says it better I ever could. Listen to Glenn rant on protesters, BLM, Muslims and progressives. He tears them a new one. He's also highly supportive of Donald Trump.

ChiCom Flu & State Government Forced Shutdowns

It is everyone's personal responsibility to protect themselves in all life threatening situations. The ChiCom flu is deadly to some in poor health and a minor distraction to people in good health. People have a personal responsibility to protect themselves based on the degree at which they are threatened by the ChiCom flu.

Taking personal responsibility is a conservative principle.

Another conservative principle is adhering to the US Constitution. There is no conflict in principles here. People can protect themselves and their full freedoms and liberties at the same time. The government shut down of businesses is unconstitutional.

The US Constitution, in Article I, section 8, grants Congress the power:

To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes.

The word "regulate" at the time of the writing of the constitution meant to "make regular", not impose burdensome rules. We also know that federal laws supersede state laws.

The federal government has not done anything other than issued guidelines during the ChiCom flu shutdown. It has been state governments that have issued shutdown orders. However, Congress has abdicated its responsibility to make commerce regular among the states, given that not all states are shutdown and businesses in open and free states are affected by the actions of tyrannical government officials in non-free states.

Governors, appointed officials and lawmakers of states are bound by the US Constitution. Their purpose should be to protect the freedoms and liberties of the people. The 1st Amendment is:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The shutdown orders issued by states violated the right of the people to peaceably assemble. In some states, actions have taken place that have violated the right of the people to petition the Government for a redress of grievances, when the people have gone to protest the government.

These rights may not seem important to some people, but they are a foundation of our freedoms. They are a check on government power to control individual lives. When government acts against those rights it sets a precedence for greater control in the future.

What has happened to America? The world's greatest economy has been driven to a halt. Tens of millions are unemployed. The healthcare system is being driven to bankruptcy because "non-essential" patients are not allowed to receive care. Hospitals, clinics, labs, and doctors are not able to perform or bill for "non-essential" procedures. Trillions of dollars are being spent on winners and losers picked by Democrats in the House. Those dollars are a debt to be repaid by future generations. It will lead to high taxes and greater control of business and everyday lives.

The answer was simple from the very beginning. Take personal responsibility. Don't ever ask or expect government to do anything except protect your rights. And most importantly, stop being afraid. Being afraid shows you haven't taken personal responsibility.

Citizens and Subjects

Increasingly people in the US are willing to be subjects of a non-elected, life-long government employees who set policy, write and enforce regulations. (I also use the term deep state to refer to long employed government employees. It is not some conspiracy theory.) These government employees lack real world experience in business. They often lack education despite going to once considered excellent college and universities. In short, they get degrees in majors with the word "studies" in them. Higher education to these people is indoctrination and networking with others pursuing the same goals. That is employment with government; often just like mummy and daddy have.

They live in a cocoon of urban and urban sprawl all their lives, never working on a farm, never working in manufacturing, never building anything - particularly never building a business from the ground up. These people have a broken moral compass. They do not care for rights of the people or the right to life. If they did so, our freedoms would not be shrinking and abortion would have ended.

The Subjects of the United States of America are willing to be led by the deep state. They are as much to blame for America's problems as the deep state.

A minority of Americans are citizens. (For the really dull reading this, I write of people who behave as citizens, not of people merely born here.) Citizens take personal responsibility. They engage in civics. They are self-reliant. They want, above all, to better themselves and their family's lives through productivity without the assistance of government. Assistance from government defeats the personal achievement and independence desired and felt by citizens. Productivity may take many forms, but in most cases it does not come easily. It requires hard work, education, patience, practice and time. It also often requires capital.

Subjects and the deep state are diametrically opposed to all these things. They demand confiscation, by force, of capital to be redistributed to other subjects. They value indoctrination in progressive causes over education of practical value. Subjects lack patience, they want it now and they are willing to take it now. This, by the way, is about the only time they are motivated to actually work - taking someones else's money. Subjects are willing to be employed by government (not work, just show up to a position) for the sake of a pension or retirement plan. While employed they never build anything of value to others. Instead they build their little kingdoms and thiefdoms through politics, ass kissing and favors to ensure lifelong employment. Subjects confuse the feelings of achievement and independence with the feeling of power over others. True citizens understand that their achievement comes not from power over others, but by unforced and unassisted accomplishment. Citizens do it on their own without having to force others to assist them.

Perhaps the greatest defining difference between citizens and subjects is that citizens are willing to take risks while subjects do not. Taking risks results in rewards of two types: 1.) Success and 2.) Learning experiences. A side benefit of risk taking is confidence. When risk is taken, wins produce a sense of achievement and losses almost always seem not as bad as imagined in the first place. This leads to confidence. Contrast a citizen's confidence to a subject's arrogance: deep staters and subjects have a sense of entitlement. They feel that something is owed to them because they are better or somehow more special than others. Arrogance is born out of entitlement. Confidence is born out of achievement.

True Americans are citizens.

Taxes

I don't have a problem with the idea of paying taxes. I do have a problem with how taxes are levied. I also have a problem with government spending. Government spending should be significantly reduced thru the wholesale elimination of numerous government agencies. Regulations should be completely eliminated for the cut agencies. This would create an environment conducive to business growth, which leads to employment growth. All of this can be achieved, without changes to tax policy. But I want tax policies to change as well.

Consider these facts.

1.) Businesses pay incredible amounts of money to account for and prepare taxes.
2.) Large businesses can afford to lobby lawmakers to implement tax policy that hurts small business and give large businesses an advantage.
3.) Business taxes are still too high to attract foreign businesses to setup shop in the US.
4.) Personal taxes are incredibly complicated to file for high income earners.
5.) Many (somewhere around 49%) Americans do not even pay federal income tax.
6.) Personal tax laws are arbitrary and are a tool for social engineering.

The solution to each one of these problems is a flat consumption tax to be paid only by consumers. Anyone making a purchase on any product or service pays the same percentage of the total price of the product or service at the point of sale. There is one exception; second-hand/used items are not taxed. States would collect the consumption tax from businesses just like they do in many states that have sales tax. Lastly, businesses do not pay any taxes on anything. Period.

Let's examine how this impacts the six problems stated above:

1.) Businesses would not have to account for or prepare taxes. (That is not to say businesses do not perform financial accounting, that is a necessary management tool and should be required by stock exchanges to be listed.)
2.) No business taxes equalize the playing field between large and small businesses (at least from a tax basis.)
3.) Without business taxes, the USA would be the number one place in the world to do business. Imagine the impact of a 0% tax rate would have on businesses looking to expand operations or relocate to the USA.
4.) Personal taxes are simplified. They are built into every purchase of a new product and every service. There are zero forms to file as an individual and you never can be audited.
5.) Everyone present in America that makes a purchase pays the consumption tax at the same rate. Period. Illegals pay. Visitors pay. Poor people pay. Rich people pay. Blacks pay. Asians pay. Old people pay. And even little children. (Yes, I am an evil Republican, I eat children for lunch.)
6.) Taxes are no longer arbitrary. They are the same rate for every consumer.

Of course we cannot trust politicians not to add new taxes of all different types, so this needs to implemented as a constitutional amendment.

Sound like the FAIR tax? It isn't. There are no prebates or other socialist schemes involved.

Power Grabs

"You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." - Rahm Emanuel

Crisis, whether real or manufactured, will always be used politicians to grab power. Power grabs, by the left or right, are never good for freedom and liberty. It means government becomes larger. Larger government means more taxes, laws and regulations - in short, less freedom.

Minimum Wage

Governor Wolf wants to increase the minimum wage to help grow the economy out of the ChiCom Flu shutdown. (By the time, someone reads this it will be way past Wolf's wanting. I write this on May 27, 2020.) Progressives think there is an endless source cash for businesses. Every mandate that they put on business has a cost. Businesses deal with this in several ways. 1.) Increase the cost of good or services. 2.) Reduce labor costs. 3.) Reduce quality of goods or services. All of these methods are counter to the good application of pure competition.

Government needs to get out of the way of business and reduce the burdens to business so employment can grow. The only way to reduce the burdens to business is the removal of laws, regulations, licensing, and taxes. Minimum wage laws should be abolished. Let the market set the price for labor. If someone is unhappy with the wages they receive, then they should acquire a new skill or knowledge to be more gainfully employed.
