Liberalism" is a disguise for Socialism

“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, six-time U.S. Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America. Congratulations, comrades.

Oneill is correct! Remedial civics is needed. Go and search Hil***ale College for your course on the Constitution...FREE.

Raising the minimum wage wont do a darn thing. Everyone here knows that when it goes up the prices for everything else follows.

And for people like me if it does go to 9 and there is no adjustment made to my hourly pay rate its essentially making me have less take home pay.

I have experienced several adjustments in the past and I hope I will be lucky and see it happen again if the minimum wage goes up.

I wish there was a viable party to get the current crop of losers in the government out of our hair. But alas the only real opposition decided to lobotomize itself.

You're on the right track, Ithink.

Consider what Isiah said:"For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden."

I confess that I was guilty of thinking myself wise. Thanks for pointing it out.

Harry, Confucious says too much display of wiseness is dumbness. :)

I believe I'll wait until later to decide whether or not anyone lies tonight.

I like to refrain from commenting from an uninformed standpoint. The book of Proverbs says, "He who answers a matter before he hears it, it is folly and shame to him."

I hope it promoted the outdated process of thinking, mythy.

I vote, and l have the right to comment. People who don't vote should keep quiet.

A good plan for tonight is ro warch a good Michigan basketball game. We can all read the lies later.

Liberalism is the super highway that ends with socialism.

Hypocrite: a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings.

What did that comment promote Ithink?

Division perhaps?

Liberalism is the super highway that ends with socialism. We have a constitution to prevent that. Too bad we have a president that does not love, honor, and respect that.

He is a black man who is the most powerful man in the world. But he continues to promote victimization and division. A sad time for America

Thats where I feel the education system needs to be overhauled with civics classes that instill that in kids.

But the overhauling of the education system is a very complex subject.

Certain areas in this country tend to produce a lot of dependent people who have little to no education.

Harry I know that you weren't advocating Calhoun's position. I just like to hear other peoples take on topics like that.

Bolo there is more than one type of taker. Both sides have them. And both can be a detriment to this nation.

But as for the takers you refer to I can agree that too many of them is bad. But if you want to shift the people in this country away from that you have to deliver the message in manner that doesn't cut people down.

If you attack a person's worth they wont listen.

People should be empowered to better themselves for their own good and this nations good.

You do that by making it so that people that really need assistance can get it. But you also need the system set up so that those who dont need it dont receive it.

The hard part is instilling personal responsibility in each person to go out and better themselves for the reasons I already mentioned. And if someone wont do that then they cant be helped.

Bolo did you see the video that was making the rounds showing the Native American calling illegal immigration protesters the real illegals.

Sorry but given my families origins I cant say much on illegal immigration. Open borders allowed this country to be founded. If you are Caucasian who's bloodline goes back a long time then you most certainly came here uninvited.

“What is the point of the federal government if the states can do as they wish?”

Read Calhoun’s words. He didn’t say that states could do as they wish. Again, I quote, “…in case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of power not delegated,…” Calhoun clearly intended to limit the states’ rights to what he called “interposition,” and what fellow South Carolinians Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms later called “states’ rights.”

Let’s get to the real question we need to settle: what Federal acts can be construed as “deliberate, palpable, and dangerous”?

Incidentally, I wasn’t advocating Calhoun’s viewpoint. I meant only to point out that his arguments predate and are far superior to Ayn Rand’s.

It seems from my point of view that there are quite a few people who would willingly impose their beliefs on people. The Constitution is held up as a holy relic by some. But those same people who congregate in states to the south of us I feel would change whole swaths of the Constitution to better fit their ideology.

How can a nation remain as one when actions such as that would fracture our national being?

Harry I ask this in all honesty. What is the point of the federal government if the states can do as they wish?

An example pertinent to me is this: What in that case is to stop a state contrary to the Constitution from making Christianity the state religion and instituting a purge of everyone that will not adhere to the will of that state?

There are solutions to problems. Whether it be a hole in a piece of drywall or a blown engine. It can only be fixed by using the proper tools and the proper parts.

I dont know what you propose as a solution to this countries problems but I get that you feel that the Obama administration is a problem. But going with a Republican administration as a solution is akin to blowing an engine and then slapping another engine on its last legs in the car. Sure it might get you down the road but it will not be a long lasting and reliable solution.

Aren't you sick to death of*****poor performance of our government? If so then you need to steep away from the current two parties if you want to see worthwhile changes made.

In a nutshell thats where I am coming from. Either get the job done right or dont even attempt it.

Calhoun wrote, “…the Constitution of the United States is, in fact, a compact, to which each State is a party, in the character already described; and that the several States, or parties, have a right to judge of its infractions; and in case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of power not delegated, they have the right, in the last resort, to use the language of the Virginia Resolutions, ‘to interpose for arresting the progress of the evil, and for maintaining, within their respective limits, the authorities, rights, and liberties appertaining to them.’ This right of interposition, thus solemnly asserted by the State of Virginia, be it called what it may—State-right, veto, nullification, or by any other name—I conceive to be the fundamental principle of our system…”

I find it odd that people invoke 1950’s writer Russian-born atheist Ayn Rand as the progenitor of minimal Federal government rather than 1830’s American-born Christian gentleman John C. Calhoun.

Put down “Atlas Shrugged” and read Calhoun’s 1831 “Fort Hill Address.” It may be taken as a Tea Party manifesto. You will see that Calhoun eloquently invokes reason and history to make his point, whereas Rand invokes emotion and fiction.

I’ll post an excerpt from the “Fort Hill Address” in my next post.

And as for what I say being made irrelevant by my non-participation. All I can say is its no loss to me if you choose to ignore what I say. That mindset is why we as a nation cant move past this stupidity that has befallen our political discourse.

Its maddening that people cant go past an agree/disagree way of dealing with things that devolves into a rigid do as I say mentality.

Look at your response to me Bolo. Its almost like you are only prepared for me to either agree with you or in the case of disagreeing you can only deal with what I say like its coming from someone directly in opposition to what you say ie a liberal standpoint.

Otherwise its dont bother talking.

By way of my work I literally get to see everyday people acting in nonthinking ways.

Monkey see monkey do! And so the same can be said of people that play the game using the current "rules" if you will.

People are either unwilling or afraid of thinking and acting outside of their respective flocks. They simply line up and parrot the talking points that originate from their group. Like lemmings to the cliff.

The paradigms that are currently out there do not represent what I believe. Sure there are things here and there I agree with but for the most part why should I compromise my principles just to fit in?

That in my book will do no good. But it will sustain the current dysfunctional paradigm.

I'd rather be irrelevant than part of the problem.
