Capitalism vs. Marxism
- "The Wealth of Nations" vs. "Das Kapital".
We are at the moment of truth at last.
The public must choose between Capitalism and Marxism. And I am sorry to say that nearly 50% of the nation (or 47% if you will) is eager as Hell to elect candidates who will give them tons of free shit paid for by some other guy somewhere.
But the choice is beyond just the Marxist re-distribution of wealth.
The choice is between:
- A Federal government ruling over Serfs that will be built in a hybrid image of Hugo Chavez Socialism and Benito Mussolini Corporatism.
- A government of free people that might look a little like the America of Capitalists Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan.
Milton Friedman - Socialism vs. Capitalism
In his book "Capitalism and Freedom" (1962) Milton Friedman (1912-2006) advocated minimizing the role of government in a free market as a means of creating political and social freedom.
From each according to their ability, to each according to their need.
Danger Will Robinson, Danger
If Obama wins, the US will go down the road of bankruptcy and poverty traveled by Greece, Argentina, North Korea, Spain, Italy and the Soviet Union. We will slowly become a 3rd world nation with nukes.
But there is extreme danger to the very fabric of America even with a victory by Mitt Romney and a GOP Congress.
Insane Spending - For twelve years a GOP Congress grew Big Government like an insane New Dealer. For the last two years the GOP House of Representatives has acted like the "deer in the headlights" and did nothing meaningful in any way to stem the flood of crazed Big Government spending and a massive run up of debt.
Does the GOP Congress have the will power to cut spending? I say no.
Each party is like a heroin addict. They must keep printing or spending trillions of other people's money to buy the votes back home to win elections.
I firmly believe the fate of the Republic comes down to Mitt Romney. Does he have the backbone to drag the liberal big spending GOP closer to a balanced budget? If Mitt wins we will know next year.
The Constitution and Bill of Rights - The other danger is totally bi-partisan in nature.
In this blog I have documented endless and eager attacks on the Constitution and the liberty of the people by both political parties.
These past stories are available on the right side of this blog under "labels for major stories". Just click on the Bill of Rights, 1984, the different Amendments to the Constitution, Constitution or Police State.
These recent stories show both Democrats and Republicans in a mad race to build and unconstitutional Big Brother Police State. I doubt if any of these bastards could name five Founding Fathers. They certainly have never heard of the Bill of Rights.
The Future - Maybe the hack liar politicians will slow the rate of spending so the US does not totally collapse. Maybe.
But even if the nation recovers, what kind of nation will it be in 10 years? The smaller government land of the free that existed under Eisenhower? or some corrupt Mussolini-style centralized Police State where Big Brother watches our every move?
