Wrong Answer to Google Political Correctness

 

The new Kurt Schlichter article in Townhall titled Conservatives Must Regulate Google And All of Silicon Valley Into Submission was just wrong on so many levels and we just had to have our say. We just could not see how any honest conservative would call for government to correct what is a problem in a business situation. We are supposed to believe that competition and profit motive takes care of any such situation. The real solution is to compete using our own better business and fair practice openly competing to rectify any such problems. Using the sledgehammer of government to rectify the slide leftwards by Google, the Facebooks, the Twitters and presumably much of Silicon Valley would be exactly the kind of acts by progressives which we have spent much of our time fighting and complaining over. His first sentence states, “Google’s fascist witch-burning of an honest engineer for refusing to bow down at the altar of politically correct lies was the final straw, an unequivocal warning to conservatives that there’s a new set of rules, and that we need to play by them.” Nope, that is not the answer. The answer is for conservatives to enter this market investing capital and establish a competing company which either provides a right leaning response in that market, or better to provide a truly neutral centered market response where people can find straight answers to their queries or have honest discussions without censorship by the company providing the platform. That is the conservative answer.

 

Kurt Schlichter stated the conservative approach was to allow profits, and competition would take care of such problems. His claim then that, “For businesses, one obligation was to generally stay out of the cultural and political octagon,” may have been an old rule but political neutrality has not been true in many businesses for quite some time without people demanding a political solution. One prime example is Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream who have been extremely left supporting with their actions but there has been no demand for any government intervention as there are many other ice cream vendors where conservatives can buy such products thus avoiding adding to the profits Ben and Jerry’s owners can use on leftist campaigns and causes. His next paragraph gives the crux of his argument stating, “But the Woke Weenies of Silicon Valley, flush with cash, power, and unearned smugness, decided that they just couldn’t keep on the sidelines and make their money. No, they had to make change, as in, changing us. They violated the most important of the old rules – they chose a side.” So they decided to choose a side and work to minimize the conservative message which supposedly cripples the conservative message. The answer, let us state it again, is for conservatives or another entrepreneur to enter the market and compete by providing a better and more honest or a conservative effort, thus providing options for consumers. Yes, granted that competing against Google, Facebook, Twitter and let us even add in YouTube, would be a difficult and challenging prospect and would require finding some means of advertising campaign to get a leg up and then allow competition lead them to gain popularity and a reputation. Complaining that these companies are flush with cash and have the advantage of an established consumer base and in order to level the playing field, government intervention should be used to force these companies to play in a manner conservatives would find appropriate. Let us look at some history in the same arena of the Internet when a company called America On-Line, better known as AOL, had a near monopoly on e-mails, gaming, chat rooms and dial-up modem connections which might have appeared to be overwhelming. AOL did run into competition which eventually led to Google taking over many of these areas and then came numerous free e-mail providers and Twitter and ICQ took over chat with a better system and before you know it, within a couple of years and AOL was fighting for its survival. Why would this be any different? Yes, these companies have everything going for them but as Kurt Schlichter points out, they are making a business decision which might be a shaky and problematic decision. This should indicate an opening for new competition which could establish a foothold and then work into direct competition by offering a better and more equal product. That would be the answer.

 

Kurt Schlichter even pointed to another area where the vast majority of those within this area have taken a leftward position, the media and entertainment industry. He also pointed out that the conservatives managed to make entries and had some established companies which grew their audiences as a response to the leftward lunge by especially the news media and opinion in print media through talk radio and establishing conservative competition. That was the correct message he should have used for this situation as well. There was a time when all there was in news media on the air television were ABC, NBC, CBS and a few scattered media systems as well as local stations. Then came cable television and ninety-nine channels and even then the vast majority of news and opinion remained left leaning. As cable became more affordable, the demand increased for variety and even international news broadcasts became available and we soon had five hundred channels and an array of choices which was unbelievable when compared to what we used to have just a decade or so earlier. Today there are cable companies and satellite television where there are a thousand channels and when adding Internet television the number of channels will soon be virtually uncountable. There will be thousands of channels and while you surf there will be nothing worth watching, or so we will often still complain there is nothing worth watching. Again, technology and advancements produced an environment which permitted sufficient room for competition making the playing field even and everybody had their opportunity to try and be heard. If they offered what people enjoyed, they succeeded.

 

The Internet should be the place where this would be true for any service and if the current Silicon Valley companies desire to take a leftward lunge, then perhaps it is time for some group of startups to build a wonderful area where the weather is nice and start employing those programming engineers and technicians and mathematicians and other related fields required to build competing companies perhaps in or around the Myrtle Beach area (see image below). This could start just what will obviously be required to remedy this situation, not government regulations. Kurt Schlichter wrote, “Yet they still expect the same laissez-faire treatment as any other business even as they try to gut us politically. They discriminate against conservatives,” and they should get exactly that, as should their competitors. He adds, “See, what leftists do not get is that principles are part of systems,” which is why they should be easily competed against as they offer a less and less diverse product.

Kurt Schlichter then uses the argument of, “the period after feminism demanded total female social equality with men, but men still generally picked up the check. That imbalance cannot persist forever; eventually the people on the other side feel like suckers, so they stop playing by the old rules. That’s when the new rules arise,” which is exactly the solution here. The new rules need to be social and in competition and not in rules put in place by government. Then Kurt Schlichter takes a sharp turn back to having the government intervene with, “And that’s why conservatives now need to savagely regulate companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter. We need to use our political power in Congress and red state legislatures to incentivize Silicon Valley to return to a system where its companies embrace political and cultural neutrality, or suffer crippling consequences.” That is wrong, wrong, and so very wrong. Then he admits the problem with his argument but stands on it again, with, “Yeah, I know that heavily regulating private businesses is not “free enterprise,” but I don’t care.” Additionally, I just feel like letting him make the argument and then refuse to demand we simply compete stating, “they didn’t keep their part of it, and I see no moral obligation for us to be played for saps and forgo using our political power to protect our interests in the face of them using theirs to disembowel us. I liked the old rules better – a free enterprise system confers huge benefits – but it was the left that chose to nuke them.” And then we get, “Well, size matters, and Silicon Valley’s giants are just too darn big. Time to chop them up like old Ma Bell. Let’s apply the antitrust laws that were made for taming just these types of octopod monopolies.” Ma Bell is a false flag as there were companies attempting to compete with them but the government granted Bell a virtual monopoly. While despite the government using the Silicon Valley services, they are not granted a monopoly and there is no prevention of competitors to step up to the plate and go for the big one, the home run of toppling one of these companies with a better product.

 

Closing, Kurt Schlichter makes recommendations including, “So how about the Algorithm Transparency Act, a law that bans these big Internet companies from putting their fingers on the scale of discourse and requires them to make available online all of their operating algorithms? Yep, that would give competitors a peek at their intellectual property, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make for transparency.” I do agree with his last line which reads, “Like I always say, you’re going to hate the new rules.” True, we would hate any new rules as we would rather there be less rules. Our argument for such things will always be competition, competition, competition. As far as making their algorithm opened up to competitors, no. Once there are competitors who come up with competing algorithms such a law would become a double bladed sword and counterproductive as their algorithm would be their advantage. We are sorry Kurt Schlichter but we have to claim that the proper answer is to out compete by giving the people an honestly fair and even product which simply provides the best answers regardless of the political slant and allow Silicon Valley to go as far left as the Democrats and become unusable by the average American or the people of the world, we need remember that competition on the Internet are international so really the competitors could set up on the Riviera or even in Israel where the talent for such a start-up is plentiful.

If You Hate Your Obamacare, You Must Keep Your Obamacare

 

America was promised that first thing out of the box, given the power, Obamacare would be repealed and some things improved if they were to be kept. Well, that did not happen, did it. They have tried at least twice to repeal and replace it with what they said would be a system based more on competition and less on government. The first was rejected by many conservative commentators and healthcare specialists. That was probably predictable as they are politicians, not geniuses. Well, the House went back and presumably asked for advice from physicians and insurance executives as well as heads of healthcare facilities of every level and type and came up with a Plan II. The Senate spent a fair amount of time in debate and made alterations amending parts, adding and cutting until they felt they had molded something worthy of sending back to the House of Representatives and presenting to the people. The Republican leadership requested the party come together and send the legislation back and advised that after the House of Representatives had their shot at altering, adding and cutting the Senate would have another go at what they received. The Republicans were likely guaranteed that unlike Obamacare, which was passed in haste and fearing the replacement for Senator Kennedy would topple their chance to pass anything different, they passed the legislation as it stood in a state of sheer panic, unfinished and knowing it would fail. This was acceptable as they defined the plan to murder the insurance leg of the healthcare support system. That would place healthcare at the precipice and without the financial support of the insurance leg, soon the entirety of the healthcare system would be pushed beyond the cusp and the American people would demand that they be saved from the collapsing healthcare system. They would demand from the very people who allowed the crisis, actually enacted the necessary infection of the system forcing its collapse, the authors of the problem to save them and repair the problem.

 

The repair was going to be single payer government healthcare, the British styled system just like the system which just allowed Charlie Gard to die. The single payer style British, or Canadian, French, Swiss, German or any other European styled healthcare or similar to any socialist system’s healthcare system and then the government would control life itself. Many are probably wondering why the British Courts decided that Charlie Gard, Charlie the Innocent, had to have his life support terminated and thus making Charlie terminated. There will be reports that he was unsavable, but not all treatments had been tried and New York – Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center was willing to try an experimental treatment free of any cost if the British courts would permit them the opportunity to attempt and save his life. The parents through a funding site had raised more than sufficient money to pay for any incidentals to allow them to accompany their newborn son. But the problem was simple for the courts, could the government allow their citizens to chase treatments which might actually save their lives outside the British system. Allowing Charlie Gard to be treated, even for free, could set a dangerous precedent and if such became anything approaching normal, then their entire system would be called into question. They could not allow for the British government single provider system to be questioned and called into doubt. The risk that the people in Britain might come to doubt whether they were really receiving the best conceivable healthcare from their government could not be risked and Charlie Gard had become the test case before the world. Charlie against the British government healthcare system, Charlie had to lose, Charlie had to be allowed to die with dignity because that was the British way, or at least it is now. Charlie had to be denied any chance to live outside the British healthcare system.

This is the eventuality which Obamacare was and will bring about. Should the number of insurance companies dwindle until there were only a few, possibly just one, and the government’s job would be made that much easier. Part of Obamacare was the government covering the losses of health insurance companies and using bureaucratic delays, they could starve the weaker insurance companies into folding leaving fewer providing coverage until the government could simply absorb the remaining companies and merge it all into government single payer healthcare. Presto Change-o and the government would respond to the cries of the sheeple who would not know where to turn and would be willing to accept anything because they were scared. That plan is still working, and working right as planned and the system to give the government control over life and death is still working because there are those who desire the government to absorb this power. These are the government lifers who have been in Washington D.C. so long that they have come to believe their own propaganda. They believe that government will be exactly what the people need and if the government just took over all the healthcare, then things would be perfect. When, after taking over healthcare, they still did not have all the power required to control the population, then what, then what would they grab next? What would be next, the food stores?

 

Who are the people who desire to run everybody’s life from Washington D.C. and are blocking any hope of changing the current Obamacare trap from snapping shut? Well, the Democrat Party leadership is all behind this and were the ones who enacted this to begin with. When the Democrat Party leadership wants something, they get what they want because they appear to have complete control over their members. When the Democrat leadership wants something passed, it passes. When the Democrat Party leadership wants something opposed, it is opposed. Then there are the Republican Party faithful. When the Republican Party needs their votes, they get them. Then there are the government faithful, those for whom the government means everything. They will support government even over the people. These Republicans just shot down the latest Republican healthcare plan. The plan likely was not perfect, but nothing is but it would have given some hope against Obamacare. Who are these Republicans who prefer Obamacare and the government over the people? Well their names are Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.; Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Dean Heller, R-Nev.; John McCain, R-Ariz.; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska; and Rob Portman, R-Ohio. For many these names are not of any surprise and they all live in states where they will very likely be reelected and will die while serving, or is that disserving in the Senate.

 

Senator John McCain has taken his objection to a whole other level when he stated to the media that the “major failures” of ObamaCare were that it was “rammed through Congress by Democrats on a strict party-line basis without a single Republican vote. We should not make the mistakes of the past that has led to ObamaCare’s collapse, including in my home state of Arizona, where premiums are skyrocketing and health care providers are fleeing the marketplace. We must now return to the correct way of legislating and send the bill back to committee, hold hearings, receive input from both sides of the aisle, heed the recommendations of the nation’s governors, and produce a bill that finally delivers affordable health care for the American people.” That is a mouthful and probably would escape many that what John McCain, Mr. Loyalty when on the campaign trail, what he just stated is that he will join any Democrat effort to oppose any efforts to repeal or replace ObamaCare. He has just joined the Democrat offensive to refuse anything that the Republicans offer unless it is to further fund ObamaCare and continue to inflict its heavy toll on the American people. So, as long as the Democrats continue their rejection, they can count upon Senator John “I’m a loyal and trusted Republican” Sidney “but I am also a ‘Never Trump’ loyalist and with his opposition on anything which makes him look bad or not honor his evil promises” McCain, thus I must join the Democrats once again on this effort to save ObamaCare and “Stump Trump.” So, the Republicans in the Senate can add John McCain to the Democrat Party opponent list for the duration and should put up an honest and valid challenger to his next election or force his retirement. He has joined the left and will not be retrieved; he has gone round the bend.

Stopping Trump More Important than Serving the People

 

There is a revolution going on and it is being fought on every conceivable front. The media is using every type, traditional, social and new, and taking this fight to the highest pitches to screaming from hilltops to digging the dirt in the lowest of valleys. Character assassination, threats of violence, death threats, cursing people’s mothers, nothing is considered too low or out of bounds. Impeachment is the most repeated cry to the point that it has become the rallying cry of the revolution. Oh, let us not leave out that there has formed a group called; “The Revolution” and its members claim to be legion. There is also the Hillary Clinton front which includes the themes that the Russians influenced the election, Wikileaks is an evil group of plotters, former FBI Director Comey was out to get her, the media stabbed her in the back, the Democrat Party machinery was broke and broken, there were plots to have her lose, its everybody’s fault but Hillary’s because she is the ultimate victim. If this was a Shakespearean tragedy, she would have been the virginal damsel distressed and in the end sacrificed for no real reason other than her constant screeching drove everyone mad.

 

Believe it or not, all of these things and more are plotting the 2018 election campaign and we can predict its theme from the Democrat side. They are going to tout how Obamacare was forced to fail by President Trump because he refused to enforce the financial assistance to the insurance companies knowing it would crash the entire system. The new solution is more government and a single payer plan backed entirely by the government driving many insurance companies into insolvency, which will be Trump’s fault. Then the claim will show how when President Obama was in office and the Democrats controlled Congress they accomplished so many things and now the Republicans are ignoring the people and have a do nothing Congress. This is true but it is due to disruptions of the system to the point that no subject can be brought to the floor as all the time is consumed trying to discredit Trump. It is working. The Democrat aim is to take the House of Representatives such that they can bring Articles of Impeachment against President Trump and perhaps also Attorney General Sessions along with whatever other Cabinet Secretaries they can invent some charge. Then if Trump appears to be on his way to a second term which the Democrats cannot prevent, they will aim for reaching a large enough majority that with a few Republicans, such as John McCain, to be able to find President Trump guilty of the Impeachment charges and thus removed from office. Once they have accomplished this, the Democrats will start initiating their agenda always with the threat of Impeachment looming in the background to intimidate newly installed President Pence while the Senate refuses to approve any of his attempted appointments for the new Vice President. Do not fear, as soon as Pence stops playing ball, the Congress will impeach him as well and as the next in line will be the Speaker of the House, as there will be no Vice President, then we may end up with President Pelosi or worse, President Keith Ellison. Forget the Founding Fathers; we would have a new founding with the Founding Imams.

 

Founding Fathers vs Founding Imams

Should we have a President Ellison the world can expect the policies of Barack Obama back on the front burners and supersized. Israel will become the red-haired, freckled stepchild left out on the stoop in the middle of an Alaskan winter. Socialism modeled after Sharia will be the position of the Congress fully backing everything a President Ellison desires. The United States will never hold another election and the Congress will become simply an amen chorus or dissolved to be replaced by a body called some form of Deputy of the Revolution and the rest of the government will be transformed. A new tax will emerge called the Jiyza which will be somewhere around one third of earned money and be applied only to those who do not follow Islam. Islam will be initiated as the national religion of the United States of Allah, the new name which can still be referred to as the USA. Things will radically change and there will be no turning from this new path. The Supreme Court will be dissolved and the new Sharia Court of the United States of Allah will be installed with all Imams of prominence in the Islamist movement will be chosen by a board made up of the heads of CAIR and the Islamic Society of America (which will need to change its name somewhat). Soon thereafter all crosses and Jewish Star of David or Ten Commandments and other religious symbols will be torn off churches, synagogues, temples and other places of worship. Only the symbols of Islam will be permitted in the public places. No public preaching or evangelical events or any form of proselytizing will be permitted except for those of Islam. Instead of Iran, the newest best friend of the USA will be likely Saudi Arabia where President Ellison will soon pressure the Royal Family to retire and be replaced by a Sunni Council of Imams who will rule in the Wahhabi strict form of Sunni Islam. This form of Islam will become the one practiced with favor from the government in the new USA and Egypt’s President Sisi will be brought under great pressure and when Egypt had another election, the winner of the Presidency and the vast majority of the Legislature will be members of the Muslim Brotherhood, guaranteed. President Sisi will then be charged with heresy and receive a death sentence. We cannot have a hero for those opposed to rally around. The Egyptian military will go through a cleansing, as would have the military of the USA. Such things will occur with unbelievable rapidity that any time to revolt to prevent this takeover will be next to impossible. The borders will be thrown open and there will be an immediate immigration of hundreds of thousands of Sunni Muslims until there are sufficient Jihadists to protect the Caliph of the USA.

 

All of this is theoretical and probably beyond the reason of any normalcy. This would not be normal by any stretch of the imagination, but we have very active imaginations. We will possibly see Keith Ellison as a candidate for President most likely in 2028 should President Trump prove to become successful and popular to such an extent that the Republicans appear probable winners of the 2024 election with Mike Pence as their candidate. After twelve years of Republican Presidents in the White House, the next election is all but guaranteed to elect a Democrat. We can expect Hillary to attempt another shot at the office of the President and another fail which will not be her fault but that of the Democrat Party which deserted her, as she would probably lose in the primaries. Furthermore, should President Trump be reelected we can expect the foaming at the mouth insanity to tamper down and slowly fade as what is the use when he will be out of office anyways as he will not be eligible to run again. Still, the Republicans, if they do not find real leadership, will probably be lucky if they can lower taxes, let alone replace Obamacare. We have not seen such ineptitude since Junior High School and the elected school president’s attempts to make the faculty not assign homework on the weekends. We all believed that the amount assigned increased after the student council’s attempt to enforce this motion which they passed all but unanimously, there was a couple of realists who abstained, if we remember correctly. How the Republicans are going to be able to face their constituents and claim they were unable to move on their agenda because the Democrats were mean to them is beyond our imagination, though the mainstream, gerrymandered Representatives in the House will return but the Senators will have a tough sell outside of Wyoming, Texas and Oklahoma.

 

The disruptions by the Democrat underground supporters are working to perfection and a virtual coup is in action and taking place. They are obstructing the government all but paralyzing both Houses of Congress preventing them from enacting even the most popular items of the Republican promises to the public. These are replacing or simply repealing most of Obamacare and lifting a fair share of the tax burden such that the economy thrives and jobs return in numbers. What is odd is the jobs are out there but most require a fair amount of skills and knowledge of technology or the use of technology. There is an Executive Order which will attempt to persuade companies to open up apprenticeships which would pay employees as they learn and once they become competent at their position they would then receive a bonus and a large increase in salary commensurate on their positions. Apprenticeships are not something new to President Trump though this variety would be demanding more than competing on a game show, this would be real training on the job and results would be demanded. One can only feel sorry or be looking forward to the introduction of the new college and university graduates to the real world and the job scene where there are certain expectations and time-outs and sensitivity corners do not exist, or at least we never ran into any but then we both worked in technical fields with computers and micro-electronics such as medical equipment, satellite communications equipment, office systems software, data base management and other specialties. We also needed to learn much of our skills on the job as technology completely transformed our positions. These changes would not have been possible without the necessary technological discoveries, inventions and supplemental systems all developed and married into the systems with which we worked. These items we operated as systems or repaired as units were all adapted for new uses for which they were not necessarily originally intended as our jobs attempted to keep at the fore of technology.

 

The Democrats will not be able to prevent this even if they block any legislation from consideration as President Trump can initiate such programs simply by making speeches and tweets about the advantages of these type of programs and how these apprentices will be trained tailor made for their positions and once they have the initial training they can then have their knowledge broadened by other programs run all but completely by the employers themselves. There is the possibility we will see university styled training centers where instead of paying to attend you are paid to attend and there will be a job waiting for you once you graduate. These schools will have programs which last one, two, three or possibly more but unlikely. We need to remember that the Army can train helicopter pilots and the Navy and Air Force can train jet fighter and other pilots within two years, so three years is even a longer time than most would ever need despite the probability that these trade schools will also offer some additional coursework to round out the students, sorry, apprentices. We can expect President Trump to go straight to the industries and companies where many of his ideas can be utilized successfully and will not require anything from Congress to implement once they have been brought onboard.

 

This is one way that President Trump can implement parts of his economic progress campaign. Still, much of what must be accomplished requires Congress. President Trump should start to take the initiative and regularly call the leadership of both parties and other times the Republican leadership or Democrat leadership, depending on who is required, and suggest parts of his programs be brought before the House and Senate and run through its paces and form a piece of legislation and pass it on to the White House for signing. Warn the members and leadership of the Congress that as President, Trump expects clean legislation which does not include any extemporaneous or additional attachments or riders and expressly will not accept additional spending on other items along with his legislation or he will edit the legislation, veto it and send it back for the expected revisions, period. President Trump needs to read Congress the riot act, as they are about as dysfunctional a group of supposed adults that has ever graced the face of this earth and are heading for a disaster at the polls for both parties. This could be done through just the leadership with them called to the White House for a meeting held in the Oval Office instead of some meeting room as usual as this will impress the message with more weight if only because the Oval Office is somewhat intimidating and is like the President’s nest.

 

The other means, which is more risky, would be to address a joint session of Congress with the Justices of the Supreme Court invited to listen and be present, and before a televised speech set out his agenda, announce the introduction of legislation the White House is delivering to Congress (turning and handing a tall stack of bound pieces of legislation such that there are numerous separate bound pieces and giving them to the Speaker and the Vice President to bring to their respective sides of Congress would be an impressive and unprecedented move) legislation the White House expects expedited and serious consideration sending clean legislation on these important and critical matters which are necessary if the nation is to remain viable. The President has proven he can stick to a message if it is his message and that can be written into any speech, you just need to meet with the President and then do as he has requested. Such a move could break the logjam in Congress and even more likely if the people respond to an appeal to tell their Congressional representatives, both in the House of Representatives and in the Senate, that the people approve of what the President proposes. The President can apparently in an off-hand remark note how he is assured that those opposing this historic opportunity to right the Ship of State and get America working again will make themselves heard and receive glorious reporting supporting them in the media, but then caution Congress that there is the other side and its members are growing and will not forget who worked to build America and who were out there attempting to drag her asunder. With a great speech, better than his first Address to the joint session of Congress for the initial State of the Union Address, President Trump can become almost Reaganesque and accomplish exactly what he desired and is obviously required to do exactly as we stated, right the Ship of State and gets America working again.

 

The Revolution, as the combined forces countering any movement while the conservatives are in control and demanding that only the leftist most progressive movement will be tolerated, the people be damned, are calling themselves, has controlled the story so far in Washington D.C. It is time for other voices to be heard above the din of dissent. Washington has reached the end of this path and they face a crossroads with one direction being the Trump agenda or something resembling such and the other the continued din of dissent demanding with a dedicated drumbeat the dissolution of decency and a devotion to the duty of desolation which is their desire. Those are the two directions and the United States has been traveling along to the ditty of drudgery which sounds the din of dissent and the people deserve better. If those on the left, especially the extremists, have a better plan for America, place it before Congress, get it passed and give the President, the duly elected President even if you think the system is rigged, the chance to choose whether it can be made to work. President Trump will either sign it or veto it hopefully with reasons, even if they come in the form of Tweets. This war of words, and sometimes things substantive and capable of causing injury, has got to end and the people’s desired progress be made or at least attempted. Remember that what has been done by the left to impede the right will be available for the right to stop the left and this is a cycle that goes nowhere.

 

The people desire that things move along and they will get their desire one way or another, one retains the principles with which the nation was founded and built and the other ties that down replacing it with their desired form of governance which will permanently seat them in absolute power. We have studied history and have seen this power-play before and it always results in the same ending, the slaughter of the useful idiots once power has been secured and the formation of a secretive police force which enforces loyalty above all else. The end result is never pretty and should this become the future then abandoning ship as quickly as possible and while it is still legal is the advised reaction. The requirement to reach this state will take only one or two terms of the leftists holding both houses of the Congress and the Presidency. That second term will never really end, as the United States is a power like no other before her. Thusfar America has been good but democracies, even republics, only last so long and they always fail in the same manner, excessive government debt, excessive debt amongst the people (credit card and student loans are the two killers today), high unemployment, much discontent, deadlocked governance unable to bring the people forward, disconnected youth with no roots in history or knowledge of from where their government came, and a disloyal group which honestly believes that they and only they should be permitted the right to rule because they know, they really do know. Those grounded in history and knowledge of the past know what is coming and fear it with great trepidation and fear as they watch the potential threat to their beloved governance and know there is little which can be done to prevent the coming apocalypse. It was inevitable as soon as the nation was founded and it will come and destroy it all just as sure as the sun will rise in the east tomorrow and set in the west today. These are the tides of governance which were written for a warning which has never been heeded, will it be heeded this time, doubtful. The name for it is the Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance (see below). It has an accompanying theory explained below.

 

Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance

Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance

 

A people will set for themselves the great challenge of self-rule and revolt against their governance having been filled with great faith in a better means of governing. They will take up courage and stride forth as a new nation based on the rights of the people and the right to ownership of the means of your own support and right to land protected by law. Freedom and liberty will rule and soon as infrastructure is available, there will be great wealth, an abundance. Abundance will lead some to avarice taking more and more but the abundance will soon appear as normal and the people will be contented to the point of blindness to what is occurring around them. The problems will start to become apparent but they will have their rightful share as did their parents and their parents back many generations all the way to that glorious revolution learned about in grade school and seldom mentioned afterwards, we wonder why that was left to be forgotten. Ah, who cares, I have my job and am busy with life, far too busy to be concerned with such things. This apathy opens the door for a dependent class to be born. General welfare becomes the new way of eradicating poverty and keeping the people complacent. Apathy is joined by and reinforced with a dependent class who now depend completely on government and thus are the tools of the corrupt. This leads to the overthrow and the return to an oppressive rule which nobody really knows or understands how it happened as it was so swift at the end, a whirlwind of events. The lost freedoms and liberties will not be seen again by any of the generation then alive as they will all serve in bondage to an elite few. This eventually will lead to an increase in faith in mankind and a desire to rule oneself. This faith to courage and courage to revolution and revolution to abundance and here we go again. Check history as it is full of such things from Caesar to Chairman Mao and Pol Pot, it is always the same grinding of the wheel, of the Tytler Cycle of Power in Governance.
