Today is New Year’s Eve, a time to celebrate. The news is amazing. We humans were created with reason and logic. What do we have to celebrate?
A far cry from progressive government, the progressive order of the universe provides we humans with unimaginable power potential. It has come to this nobody, from information available to all, that the only limitation is we ourselves. This was emphasized in a fourteen hour PBS documentary reproduced on DVDs, which I received as a Christmas gift, The Roosevelts, An Intimate History.This documentary is a well done review of the trials and tribulations of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, all progressives. They saw the merits of big government and put out extraordinary effort to get the ball rolling. They made an indelible impression on future America. I’ve commentary on the result.
The facts speak for themselves. Famine, genocide, war, enormous human suffering, a never-ending story, this is all attributed to big government,
These Roosevelt’s, America’s aristocracy, naturally, would want to share their good fortune with all, by taking from the rich and giving to the poor. Franklin gets credit for putting New Deal law into effect–forced charity. During his time in office as President, he replaced eight of the nine Supreme Court justices with his choice. Speaking for New Deal law, one of Franklin’s appointees, Justice Brandeis, asserted, “Property is only a means. It has been the frequent error of our Court that they have made the means the end.” We are the means of do-gooder ends–anything for the good of all. How noble! The end can leave the worker without money to buy his own needs. Nothing could be more wrong.
In the documentary, we see horrible poverty. New Deal law was seen, according to Franklin, as government’s “inherent duty” to the individual, regardless of the fact, he admitted, that it isn’t written in the Constitution. The documentary saw no evil, heard no evil, and spoke no evil. Since when has government had a duty to the individual? Americans originally came from Europe, giving up everything simply for the opportunity to do one’s on thing. Government cannot possibly know which individual should have government help and which should not. Growing dependence on government is the result of New Deal law. Government is here to do that which the individual can’t do for himself. While government may legitimately create work for the unemployed, government may not legitimately take from taxpayers and hand out the money to individuals. It is bribery—buying votes with other people’s money. New Deal law is lawless, a political con.
By creating a system of wealth transfer, government grows. Like private industry, the idea is government growth, but by robbing Peter to pay Paul. Private industry grows by providing real need. Roosevelt’s New Deal began small—taking only from the rich and giving to the poor. It started as a pyramid game. The winners got a lot for little tax. The New Deal now takes a lot from workers and gives to non-workers, real needs never entering the picture. Not everyone receiving government help deserves it. While America was the “Land of Opportunity,” now that it is a welfare state, people from South of the Border illegally coming to America to receive benefits from U.S. taxpayers, the Roosevelt’s aim to do good has turned into the biggest con job in the history of man.
Money goes where money flows. Half of the wealth in the United States is owned by one percent of the population. No, you cannot change the Higher Law, no matter how good your cause. We have a right and responsibility to exist on our own sweat. That was and remains my stand. I was born to be free. The government lost its case against me. I won, but remain a nobody, someone to fear, the Roosevelts, the greatest Americans ever.
President Kennedy asserted that instead of asking what your government can do for you, you should want to do what you can for your government. President Kennedy was assassinated. Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson became President and implemented, his Great Society, greatly increasing New Deal law. The Roosevelts let the horse out of the gate.
The welfare state, like a cancer, has continued to grow. Republican President George H. Bush said, “Read my lips, no new taxes,” President Bill Clinton was a welfare state champion. He changed when he saw he was in big political trouble. Republican George W. Bush, a “compassionate” Republican, ran up the national debt more than any American president in history. He was followed by the all-time biggest spender, President Barack Obama, beating Bush by more than two-to one in borrowing. With the Wall Street stock market the highest in history, with interest rates the lowest in history, I wouldn’t be surprised at the U.S. going bankrupt, Federal Reserve Notes replaced by some other currency.
The big spending progressive Democrats took a beating in the last national election. Harry Reid lost his title as the Senate Leader. President Obama said he didn’t have to veto Republican legislation while Reid was in control, but now that Republicans will be in control after January 2, he will veto Republican legislation. The fact that his political partly lost big has not fazed President Obama. I’m wondering what he has in mind. One thing for sure, we will be the last to know. Obama is the biggest liar that ever occupied the Whitehouse.
The big spending politicians speak of “a new world order.” It may well be the biggest year in American history, when we become just one more world where intelligent life exists, just one more member of the galactic community. Astrologers say we are at the dawn of the Age of Aquarius, a time when we become our brother’s keeper. Like I’ve said before, 2015 is sure to be a very interesting year in politics. Get ready for a roller coaster ride.
