Middle Class America: What Do They Want?

This blog post will refer specifically, to the middle class of the U.S.A.  Few other countries can even claim a middle class. This is how and why mankind has seen dictator after dictator in his or her country.

The goal of every would-be dictator is to take over the middle class of his or her particular country. Because, if the middle class is not controlled, their leadership will soon be over.

The Desires of the Middle Class

The middle class of America is a very broad and comprehensive group. They are also an understanding group, and sharp as well. It is by FAR the largest segment of the U.S. population.

Here are their needs and desires:

  • A government that operates in, and promotes, individual liberty, and will see to it that the people have the same liberty
  • A caring attitude by elected officials towards its people in all things
  • Lower taxes
  • Booming economy
  • Good jobs and good wages
  • Expansion of varieties of opportunities
  • Observation of the Rule of Law, which ensures law and order, peace and safety
  • Sensible immigration policy (currently nonexistent under Biden)
  • Fairness toward all
  • Religious freedom
  • 2nd Amendment rights (not nibbling towards confiscation as Biden is doing)
  • Reigning in of unfair advantages of large corporations and entities which currently exercise too many rights that are denied to the common American citizen

Part II of this topic will dive more into what and who the Middle Class is, and why they are essential to a country with a thriving economy and why, in the case of the U.S.A., they are the essential Guardians of Freedom.

Individual Liberty and Its Results – Part I

We don’t hear the term “individual liberty” tossed around much these days, but this term is foundational to our country (as originally founded). If you are undecided or unsure about certain “goings on” in recent days, please read on. Perhaps you will see things in a different light by the end of your time here.

Firstly, let’s review. When the U.S.A was founded in 1776, the laws of the new country (called the Constitution) guaranteed individual liberty for each person. This was a new concept in government, and unheard of in the annuls of history.

Countries primarily operated with Kings, potentates, rulers or dictators who had absolute authority. In all of these cases, their “rulership” completely opposed the new laws that birthed the United States of America. We have leaders, but no king. We have lawmakers whose decisions are not absolute.

Born To Be Free

The power that lawmakers have (those elected with free and fair elections) come from our U.S citizens. Men and women in Congress are elected, not appointed by any king or overseer. (And, I might add, a few appointed leaders who assume authority are not any guarantee of correctness when it comes to their decision making.) These many offices are filled by people whom we elect (at least that is the way it was intended)! Free and fair elections are for the purpose of those in authority TRULY BEING ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE, not appointed by kings, and not cronies of the people at the top of the authority structure.

World Leadership Factors

World leadership has often fallen to the U.S.A through the years. Why? Because our country and our leaders represent the best form of government that can be found. Our country has more freedom and more opportunities than any country in the world. The USA has been a world leader in times past because of the ability to “get things done” and not cave to the intimidation and threats of other rogue nations who want to control the rest of the world.

Other countries have looked up to us in the past, as a beacon of freedom. We have had world stature in many countries – people admire our accomplishments and strengths, as well as our freedoms.

You might be surprised to learn the number of other countries that have had U.S. troops residing there. Many smaller countries are threatened by rogue nations, and are easily threatened with domination by stronger empires. Until President Trump came along, the countries gladly accepting our troops were – for the most part – not paying a red cent for their protection from U.S soldiers.

Do We Realize What We Really Have?

I’m sorry to say that too many Americans do not realize the astounding benefits that our country offers them. Add to that, too many in the U.S.A have been duped by anti-American rhetoric and actions that are in process of cancelling this individual liberty that our forefathers fought for that we might enjoy. This is exactly why we have, and are now seeing all kinds of actions taken in the name of “good government,” which are wrong and deadly; actions that deny citizens their rights under the Constitution.

You must remember this: Without the Constitution and its guarantees (based on the freedoms given to us by God when He created the world), no citizen has any guarantee of anything. Without the Constitution, we would be like any other country – whose authoritarian leaders pick and choose which “benefits” to grant their slave-subjects. We see more and more in the last several months how our Constitution is being trampled on by socialistic and marxist ideas. Yes, these are dictatorial rule as well as kings, potentates and superiors! This is where we end up if we allow corrupt “rulers” to create “laws” and “mandates” at every turn, which bear no resemblance whatsoever to “government by the people and for the people.”

The Importance of Individual Liberty

We are told in our founding documents that citizens in the U.S. have certain unalienable rights. Among these rights, according to the Declaration of Independence are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

If you can prove that any other nation has this system, please go right ahead. Now notice, the pursuit of happiness. It is called the pursuit because it cannot be guaranteed by any person or government. But it does show the great extent of the liberty we have.

How Individual Liberty Impacts Others

Individual liberty is guaranteed to each person, which makes the guarantee self-limiting – because each person has it rightfully. Under our system of government, you cannot infringe upon or negate the liberty of another as you are pursuing your own individual liberty. (Please keep in mind that this is the beauty of how we were founded as a nation – the trampling of freedoms we have seen recently – particularly of those who disagree with the mainstream narrative – is neither Constitutional nor lawful.) This is why it is imperative that we see the truth unveiled, and hold our government leaders accountable to “we the people.” 

Individual Liberty – A Beacon of Hope to the World

Other Benefits of Individual Liberty

Think of a prisoner or jailed person for a moment. What are they not permitted to do? He/she not only cannot do many things physically, he or she is also unable to do many things legally as well.

Here’s where individual liberty shines brightly and shows its true colors.  Please note: If you don’t enjoy the benefits listed below, it could well be that others are attempting to steal your liberty from you. Bear this in mind as you read:

* Opportunity

Opportunity is given – the chance to go anywhere, to work anywhere, to like something different from what others do, to climb the social and financial ladder and best of all, to supply to the person the dignity and the self-worth of positive accomplishment. Socialism, Marxism, dictatorship, etc. can NEVER accomplish this.

* Capitalism (or free markets)

Our free market system is not appreciated by most people possibly because it doesn’t even register with many. Capitalism gives us freedom of choice in what we buy and in the services we receive. There is competition (in many sectors) that inspire better and more affordable goods and services. This system makes the world go ’round and propels U.S. citizens far above the people of some other dictatorial, “you don’t have a choice” societies. DON’T EVER FORGET THIS. It is the reason our country has historically been ahead of all others, and this system has created an enormous amount of wealth.

* Private Property

Let’s add this to the list of add-ons to individual liberty, the right to own something that cannot lawfully be denied. This would include ownership of homes, business buildings, land, etc.; all lift up individual liberty to where it belongs. In most countries, private property does not exist.

* Privacy

Privacy is the right – the special right to own something, some secret, some history, something of value, that government cannot lawfully change. Government was not founded to pry into your personal affairs. Government must respect what is personally yours. 

A well-known man’s personal privacy is being violated today by the Biden administration, by illegally and unlawfully breaking into a citizen’s private property without just cause. This is inexcusable conduct by government.

I sincerely hope that the actors and instigators pay very dearly for this breach of individual liberty.

We will continue to explore, in Part II, what consequences we will pay as a nation and people for allowing a loss of individual liberties.

 

Importance of Ideology – (Skin Color Has Nothing to Do With it!)

Ideology is a most important part of one’s personal philosophy, both as an individual and as part of a group. Ideology is perhaps the most DEFINING part of a person’s nature or being. And skin color has NOTHING to do with it!

Ideology and Influence

Ideology may be defined as the deeply held belief of any person. This belief is part and parcel of that person during his entire existence. It can include faith, thoughts, ideals, dreams, likes and dislikes, money and influence – yes, everything about that person that they hold on the inside.

What is inside a person must, at some point, be shown on the outside, or many times their true beliefs or intentions are mistaken by others.

Now, let me be very clear – Ideology has nothing to do with skin color! This is a socialistic lie, that should be thrown out even before it is uttered! Let me explain. Each person has a right to deeply held personal beliefs, which can change or be solidified over time by upbringing, current society, absolute truth (such as the Word of God), or other influences. But the wise person should not allow past experience to necessarily alter their ideology.

Ideology has everything to do with your personal, deeply-held beliefs; your ideology reflects the best in you, past experience or training being only a part of the whole.

People of many racial backgrounds and experiences may have pretty much the same ideology and thoughts about life as you do, and their skin color and past experience is only part of their experience to the present time. As a conservative, I would and do relate strongly to a person with a similar ideology as mine, regardless of skin color.

In fact, I am especially thrilled when a black or brown-skinned person agrees with my thoughts on our country, and the individual liberty that our country’s laws provide. It is certainly not skin color, or even background, that puts a person in any certain category or place in life. It is their ideology (personal beliefs)  that I value. Their skin color does not matter – it is not a negative!

I am not like the socialists, who delight in redefining the meaning of well-established words in order to gain political advantage.

Would I vote for a person of color, regardless of color? ABSOLUTELY! If their ideology aligns with my own, and many do, I would support people of color who run for high office. I can think of a number of people of color right now who would rank high on my list for very high office.

No, dear readers, skin color has no relationship whatsoever to personal ideology. And I am by no means the only person declaring this truth from the beginning.

Socialists are great dividers of people and government, for the purpose of creating chaos in people’s thinking.

Please don’t fall for it. We have a country to save, and the “divide and conquer” mentality is trying to drag us in the wrong direction to destruction. We can refuse to go along for the ride!

Faith, Family, and Country

Faith, family, and country. In that order? Yes, in that order.

If you are a citizen, and believe in the Constitution of the U.S. and in conservatism and common sense, you are a beloved citizen who can coach others and you can strengthen your country!

faith, family, country

FAITH in God through Jesus Christ, and owning Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the first priority.

FAMILY is next. Honor the family. Protect the family. Revere the family as the backbone of your society, and the backbone of any society. I consider husband and wife to be a family. Surely children are welcome, and are both a delight and bring a solemn obligation to teach, coach and provide example.

Next is COUNTRY. Follow the Constitution. Be informed about your leaders, and elect those you have checked out and approved, and see that they perform as they were voted in to do.

You are no doubt wondering about the world as a whole. You are a citizen of the world because you are a human. The physical world should never come before FAITH, FAMILY AND COUNTRY. Your country’s leaders will take care of the world, by first taking care of the country they have vowed to protect.

If you see signs of election fraud, and decisions being made to undermine the Constitution and the freedoms God gave to us as citizens, go back to the first priority. Ask God what you can do to turn things around. Find like-minded people and do what you can,  and above all, pray.

Our actions (or lack of them) will determine the kind of  country and freedoms our children and grandchildren will inherit from us.

Simon, A Tanner

Who is Simon? What is a tanner?

And what does it possibly have to do with life in the 21st century?

I’m glad you asked. Walk with me through the halls of ancient history and discover valuable lessons and observations that will help you navigate through life’s mysteries today.

There are two scripture (Bible) verses about Simon, a tanner, and to all appearances, they pertain to the same time period – one event.

In Acts 9:43, we find these words about the Apostle Peter: “And it came to pass that he (Peter) tarried many days in Joppa with one Simon, a tanner.”

Then in Acts 10:6, which seems to be a short time after, God instructed Cornelius, a centurion of the Italian band, to seek out Peter.  Cornelius was a man who worshipped God. Many men sought after God’s direction who were not Jews.

Cornelius was told by God to seek out a man called Simon, in Joppa (city), and there he, Cornelius, would find Peter.

So in Acts 10:6, we find the following:

(He), Peter lodgeth with one Simon, a tanner, whose house is by the sea side; He shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do.

So – what does this mean? The Bible verse seems to be telling us that Peter has a message for Cornelius. And Cornelius is directed to where Peter is. Is there any significance here concerning Simon the tanner? Yes, indeed!!

Who was Simon, anyway, and what was this all about? 

Now this Simon was a tanner by trade. A tanner was a tradesman who processed animal hides, treated them, and made them into leather. We all know about leather. Today we highly prize articles crafted from leather. We have leather boots, sandals, wallets and purses, and many items of utility in addition to apparel, shoes and personal items. Leather boots remain very popular today, although rather expensive. Leather as a finished product is beautiful, pliable and more durable than many other materials in use today.

Let’s now dig into the treasures beneath the surface of these two brief references of Scripture.

Simon was evidently a follower of God, a Christian (Christ-follower), and he had a successful trade. He dwelt by the seaside.

Why there? Because the foul odor of his trade made Simon (and every other tanner of hides) quite unwelcome anywhere in the city.  By the sea, most of the odor from Simon’s trade would be carried out to sea and dissipated.  Simon was not welcome anywhere in the city. I’m not blaming anyone for that, these were just the facts in those old days.

What can be said about Simon and his trade? His product resulted in good.

      His work was rather thankless and dirty, but the end result was exceptionally useful and highly prized. 

Now, compare Simon as a Christian and God-follower to those of like faith today. The odor of a Christian (meaning the beliefs of the Christian) in today’s society often makes us, the believers, unwelcome in the halls of science, politics, government or philosophy. Out bodies, as believers, do not stink, but our dearly held beliefs certainly stink in the eyes of many.

The weak Christian who says or does little to disrupt the elitist, humanist philosophers of society, the promoters of authoritarian government, are not so likely to be despised as the committed Christian. In their eyes, better that we be neither seen nor heard!

So, we Christians are “Simon the Tanners” in the eyes of the Left – Socialists, Communists, Marxists, and radicals of all stripes.

You may be wondering, just how, in detail, are Christians of today thought of and treated by those who don’t believe as we do? I’m speaking here of committed believers, and even more so about conservative and Constitution-loving Christians.

Why are we hated by the left? Those who aim (even as we speak) to enslave us, along with anyone who disagrees with them?

I propose that those who do NOT believe in radicalism, socialism, communism, etc. are the “TRUE” Simon the Tanners of today.

If You Could Look Through Their Worldview Lens…

We are considered to be dumb and ignorant and incapable of governing ourselves.

We are the smelly Wal-Mart people, the “basket of Deplorables” (Hillary Clinton says). There is no hope for us, because the only people who can rule us (they say) are the people of “science,” understanding, leadership and intelligence (all defined to promote only themselves and their views of the world).

They say the rest of society doesn’t have any of these skills and qualities, so they are incapable  of understanding and knowing what is good for them.

In other words, “You all are dumb sheep!”

A Recurring Biblical Theme? 

I can take you through dozens and dozens of Bible illustrations that mirror Simon the Tanner!

If you miss them, you will miss the many ways in which God operates, and the many lessons in life that you could learn from them to apply to your NOW.

Simon’s Attitude

I don’t see any evidence that Simon the Tanner whined and howled about where he had to live and conduct his trade. I see nothing except his welcoming of the Apostle Peter, who was certainly about the business of God and the spreading of the Gospel.

Simon evidently trusted in God.  He was to tell Peter what to do next.

Note that God didn’t tell a KING to give His message to Peter. He told a TRADESMAN – a man whose very trade was despised by the city people.

David’s Dad

Do you remember Jesse, the father of David? He had 8 sons.

David, the youngest, was assigned the lowest position possible, a shepherd of sheep.  Shepherding was considered (although essential) to be the lowest of the low as far as career paths go. When Samuel, the prophet, came to anoint one of the boys to be the King over Israel, Jesse didn’t even bother to call David from the field! It was only after Samuel asked if he had any more sons, that David was brought before him.  And the rest (as they say) is history!

Now the question is – did any of David’s brothers get to be a King, or ascend to any other position of great importance? If so, the Bible doesn’t record it.

But David’s great faithfulness in doing the task before him with excellence, while loving his sheep and his God, literally promoted him to a Kingship that is considered by many to be the most distinguished in the history of the world!

Job Description of a Shepherd: Would You Apply?

There are many factors involved in caring for sheep that few know about or would even consider (After all, I highly doubt you’ve seen a job advertisement for a shepherd with an enticing benefits package).

Those who kept sheep in the old Bible days, walked with the sheep, slept beside the sheep, were in pastures with the sheep (whether good or bad pastures). And I’m told that shepherds also smelled like the sheep. Literally.

And yet there are still other reasons to downgrade the lowly shepherds of the Bible. They endured heat and cold, they chased after sheep that wandered around aimlessly at times, and had to have the shepherd’s hand of protection lest they get lost and become victims of wolves, bears and lions. David killed his share of ravenous, vicious animals who intended to fleece him of his flock!

Shepherds were not only looked down upon; they often didn’t even have proper home care or even a home environment most of the time. Today, their jobs would be classified as “dirty jobs.”

Are You Unwelcome? Misunderstood?

I believe, quite sadly, that many Christians, as well as those who may not yet be believers in Christ, are living in a world where their beliefs and actions in regards to their fellowman are not welcomed. Their actions are often misunderstood, because too many people live selfish lives.  They fail to recognize truth and those who speak truth.

Of course, we are discovering that many do not want to understand any belief other than their own (even if their belief is authoritarian and makes slaves of all but the ruling elite).

                                 God often conducts His business and His desires for mankind                                           through people of lowly station in this earthly life. 

He does not always trust those with the importance of Kings, etc. God looks on the heart, not the position or the degree. He sees who can be trusted with His plan. His business is entrusted to those who love Him and follow Him.

Are you one of life’s “lowlies?”

You may not be a Simon the Tanner or a Lowly Shepherd Boy, or an overlooked member of society.

But are you reliable and faithful?

If you are, God can use you – perhaps to accomplish great things for His kingdom!

What is the Constitution for the United States of America? (Part I)

This might sound like a simple question – but the answer is that, apart from the living Word of God, this may be the most important document on earth.

The Constitution is the body of laws of our USA country. In simple language, it gives legal authority to all citizens of the United States of America to possess certain rights that cannot be ignored, changed or modified. It gives a citizen the right to pursue anything within the law of the land… so long as this does not interfere with these same rights for any other citizen.

This is not a blank check. Its limitations are its checks and balances.

Our Constitution is Unique and Sacred

Yes, our Constitution, although often not correctly interpreted, is both sacred and unique.

Its origin came from the Declaration of Independence, which states that all men are created equal. This declared fact is authorized by GOD HIMSELF, as natural law, which came from God, the Creator of us all.

Without a doubt, this Declaration stresses that ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL (meaning equal in the eyes of God and of government). It also states that we, as people, are endowed by God  with certain unalienable rightsthat among these rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The Declaration goes on to say that… to ensure these rights, governments are instituted among men… deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

It is obvious from the above statement that citizens under the Constitution are not to be governed by whim, or by any authoritarian actions of our leaders (elected or unelected). Those who represent us are to be cautious that they have our best interests at heart, AND that they are following our Founding Documents and preserving our freedoms, as outlined therein.

What Part Does Individual Liberty  Play?

If or when measures are put into process (or “laws” passed) which dilute the individual liberty, or individual rights of a citizen – whether one or many – these actions are AGAINST our Constitution, and take us, the people, away from our Constitutional guarantee of individual liberty.

Throughout the course of many years – and especially the last 12 years or so, we have seen a serious drift away from our Constitution which is – to this day – creating a climate of restricted liberty for each citizen.

Although much progress was made in the past 4 years to restore individual liberty (particularly compared to the previous 8+ years of losses), we still have a long way to go. Under the current “administration”, the country appears to be headed, sadly, to authoritarian socialism at BEST.

It only takes a brief look at history to see that too much power in the hands of a central government always shrinks the scope of individual freedom. 

We need to return to the way our Founding Fathers set up our nation and adhere to our original governing principles. Only then will we have a government operating which is “by the people and for the people”, “under God”, and “with liberty and justice for all.”

How Individual Liberty is Taken Away: Death by Degrees (Part II)

Few people who have not studied the history of the USA on a continual basis or observed the government slide over many years… few can fully realize how much freedom has already been taken away from us.

I want to brutally frank here, but also fair in my assessments.

Since I am a WWII Navy Veteran (soon to be 95 years of age), I have witnessed a lot, and been through a lot. I honestly believe I have important insight to add to this conversation – in hopes there will be willing ears to listen before it is too late.

The 3 Major Forms of Government

  1. A Type of Democracy – Usually in the form of a Republic. (Note: NOT referring to the Democrat party)
  2. Communism (China is one example. Typically run by an authoritarian dictator, king, or similar title)
  3. Socialism (which has been gaining a foothold in our country for many years)

Communism and Socialism are both dictatorships once they are established. Socialism has traditionally infiltrated society slowly – seeking to convince by persuasion rather than by force. But, as we have recently witnessed, character assassination, inciting violence, lies and even murder are being employed as an attempt to overthrow the USA into a socialistic regime.

The USA is in a State of Crisis

Our beloved USA is in a crisis today, because the current Democrat party for the most part, is pushing headlong into socialism, and this party (along with plenty of corrupt Republicans and judges) have seemingly succeeded in stealing the 2020 election from the vast majority of Americans who expected their votes to count.

Understanding the Socialist Playbook

It’s important to understand the methods employed to swing a freedom-loving country into a socialist cesspool. We need to understand their playbook – as they have memorized their game plan and use the same tactics repeatedly.

Exactly what methods are used by socialists to gain power in government, or to take power from the people?

It would be a disservice to simply gloss over the tactics used, because the great import of what they are attempting to do to our “land of the free and home of the brave” must not be downplayed.

  1. Socialists lie – repeatedly – even about matters that have already been completely proven false.
  2. Reporters (Main Stream Media) cheat the listeners by reporting incorrectly or, in many cases, refusing to report at all concerning crucial matters in government that directly affect the American people.
  3. They steal votes and elections (this has been occurring for decades) in concert with destroying votes for their opponents – in order to promote themselves to power.
  4. They invent stories about their opponents that are patently false – narratives that paint their opponents as the corrupt ones (this is called “projection”) and often put lives and careers of their opponents in legal and / or physical jeopardy because of the oft-repeated falsehoods.
  5. They feel no need to back up their statements with provable visual or physical evidence of their accusations. In other words, they lie with abandon if it suits their purposes.
  6. They repeat false narratives and lies so often and so long that many decent people begin to believe them.
  7. Their “pie in the sky” promises are absolutely bogus – they have no intention whatsoever of fulfilling them. (Watch how often they “move the goalposts” of their promises to see this in action)
  8. The socialist establishment goes to great pains to brag about their transparency – while in fact, clouding their actions and REFUSING transparency (for example, refusing to go to the border for weeks while innocent children suffer and are prey for traffickers).
  9. Socialists refuse to admit any mistake they have made politically.
  10.  They employ “projection” with great skill – accusing their opponents and anyone who disagrees with their opinions as WRONG, and from which they must save society. (Current widespread censoring is a huge red flag highlighting this tactic)
  11.  Socialists insist that they are very caring people, but, in TRUTH, they care for nothing but political power and lining their own pockets.
  12. They hate the very idea of individual liberty.

Have you heard the famous quote: “Absolute power corrupts absolutely”?  (Lord Acton – 1887)  it is absolute truth! This is why socialism must NEVER be permitted to rule this nation.

It is for this reason that we MUST FIGHT to expose corruption and to return the power to we, the people.

Our Founding Fathers saw this day…and fought, bled and died that we might remain free as God intended.

Let’s make them proud.

Part I: The Constitution of the USA

Part III: Classic Examples of Socialists’ Follies

Part IV: Middle Class Vs. Socialist Agenda

Classic Examples of Socialists’ Follies (Part III)

While touting so-called “benefits” to the way the socialists view the world, is there any true evidence that their opponents are so dangerously misled, as they claim?

I propose that socialism is not to be trusted. Here, I’ll provide a few examples of socialism at work, using the family as the first, and moving on from there.

  1. A family, in this illustration, consists of a husband, wife and 3 children. Is it right for the parents to deny one of their minor children – who disagrees with them on some point – food, opinions, or living options?  Is it right for parents to discriminate against one child because of honest differences in thought?  Is not censoring opposing opinions doing exactly that to freedom-loving Americans?
  2. Now let’s visit our border with Mexico. Thousands upon thousands of people are being encouraged to enter our country…we don’t know who they are, what their intentions are..what illegal drugs some may be smuggling, how many are infected with Covid19 or other illnesses.  Where are the masks and social distancing requirements at the border (put upon the actual citizens of the USA)? Where are the accompanying parents with the flood of children? What laws and safety protocols are being broken and ignored?

The Preamble of the Constitution says: “We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”

What blessings have been secured in the above situation? Justice?

For WHICH citizens?

Promote the general welfare (by creating more competition for our jobs, inviting in more disease, allowing potential terrorists and human and drug traffickers across the border)?

Provide for the common defense (It doesn’t say against ARMIES)?

What about the peace and safety of law enforcement and border safety agents?

What about the health hazards to those crossing our borders, and to our own USA citizens?

Is it now truly “compassionate” to throw peace and safety, law and order all out the window?

ALL of these actions ARE VIOLATIONS OF THE CONSTITUTION…AND INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY OF MILLIONS OF LAWFUL USA CITIZENS is being destroyed.

3. Let’s go deeper yet… how would a family of 4, with a 3 bedroom home – how would they fare being forced to take care of 50 -100 other unknown persons being forced onto their property and into their home?  Their tax dollars, loss of freedoms and economic loss all contributes to additional financial strain – in which they are being FORCED to comply – by the unlawful actions at the border. The southern border ALONE presents violation after violation of the Constitution designed to protect our own lawful citizens!  There are not nearly enough border safety officers to stem the massive influx of people entering illegally over our borders.

4. Look at any country where socialism has gained a foothold (Venezuela, for example). After the socialists gain power (by any means necessary), they rapidly move to ignore the needs of the Middle Class (the backbone of the country), cause manufacturing jobs to rapidly vanish, cause economic downturn in the form of income plummeting…until much of the Middle Class become part of the poorer class.  This is their plan.

5. What about the military? They are so badly needed in our current world situation, and yet they become a target under a socialist regime. Look back at the Obama years for a clear picture. The military was downplayed and downgraded to a frightening degree.  Is this also a part of their “plan”?

You cannot raise taxes on the Middle Class and create masses of poorer people without crippling the entire economy… loss of jobs, illegals competing for jobs, lower take-home pay, etc. Is this by design? Think about it.

And did you know that the public cost for each and every person who illegally enters our country will cost the taxpayer (each USA citizen) $80,000 per year? Can you afford that?

How’s that for personal safety, sanity, law and order, common sense, job security, and overall individual liberty?

They are hoping you won’t know what socialism does to the people under its rule. They are hoping you don’t know about countries like Venezuela (which used to be one of the most free and prosperous countries in the world before the socialists took over). They expect their rewriting of history in the public schools to have kept the masses in ignorance so that they      can continue to offer sweet platitudes while stealing your bed from under you. 

                     And stealing the future and hope of your children and grandchildren.

Perhaps, worst of all about the socialist agenda, is that the small, ruling group care NOTHING about the Constitution, jobs, decent living conditions, or order, peace and protection for any lawful USA citizen. Individual rights under such an administration (as we are seeing) may be all gone within 6 months or so, and we, as law-abiding citizens are simply supposed to submit and act like we like it??

CITIZENS OF THE United States of America – it is time to WAKE UP!!

It’s time to take whatever lawful and legal measures we have and RISE UP against the criminal takeover of the socialists… Our Founding Fathers fought and died to give us our freedom and we must now stand up to ensure this freedom for our children, grandchildren and future generations!

I can assure you – I will be a part of this freedom movement!

Can I count on you to join me and so many others?

The time is NOW. God bless our efforts, and God Bless America!

The Middle Class Vs.The Socialist Agenda – Honor Vs. Horrors (Part IV)

I know – who wants to hear about horrors? But here’s a tip – if we want to AVOID these horrors, we need to know what we are looking for, right?

For this reason, let’s lay out the  facts here.

Nearly all of the middle class people of America (along with most other social classes) desire and require peace and safety. This means that our country must provide law and order to meet this need. All USA citizens, regardless of economic class, were given individual liberty by God, which is written out in our Constitution (which has been increasingly eroded through many years).

We focus this article primarily on the middle class, because the middle class is the economic backbone of any society. Here is what the middle class wants (do you find yourself in this list?):

  • Opportunity, in choice of labor, jobs, how to spend free time… in all of life.
  • Clear opportunities to better themselves financially and socially
  • Trustworthy leaders who are transparent, have their best interests at heart, and appreciate the common person
  • They want a single system of justice – not justice for a few, but justice for all!
  • They thrive under capitalism, which gives choices and variety in life (this must be ongoing).
  • They seek ways to improve income, climb the financial ladder honestly, and want to be respected for their hard work and expertise.
  • Perhaps, most importantly, they value dignity and self-worth in their jobs, careers and callings, whatever they may be.  These items are achievable if the Constitution of the USA is followed.
  • The middle class seeks fairness and common sense in governing.

Now Let’s Consider Socialism and How it Works

The truth is, socialism does not and cannot give the middle class ANY of the above reasonable values and opportunities. Why not?

Well, simply because history shows us repeatedly that the tenets of socialism despise the middle class of any county.  And why is that, you ask?

It is because socialism despises individual liberty and cannot allow it… because they CANNOT CONTROL a group of people who value individual liberty, honor God, honor their country. Socialism is about control of your life under their leadership… socialism hates God, and does not honor what God has done with the USA and its people. Socialists hate a booming economy, because people are not inclined to buy into their lies nearly as much if things are progressing well economically as well as in their personal lives.

Socialism is About Power and Control of all classes of people, but especially of the middle class (the backbone of most countries).

Socialism hates (and censors whenever possible) everyone who disagrees with any premise of theirs, whatsoever. Personal freedom is a threat, and cannot be allowed under socialism.

They also hate the idea that the common man should have any benefits not “granted” to them by socialist leaders or lawmakers who act as if they are tossing them an occasional bone, so to speak – as if the perks of freedom can only be granted in minor instances with their “permission”.

* Illustrating socialism and its methods can be likened to feeding a dog…Never give him (the dog) enough to eat. The dog keeps coming back, because he either accepts semi-starvation or he runs away. But where can he go? Those entrapped in socialism have few options left.

Fortunately, we were created as humans, not dogs, yet getting out of bad circumstances is never easy. We were lied to – deceptively and repeatedly for many, many years, or we would not be in the mess we are in now. Daily on the news the exposure of the radical left doctrines seeps out – even with the heavy censorship going on in big tech.

But… we have God on our side, and if we unite and stand up together, the freedom-stealing minority of power-hungry elites won’t stand a chance!!

Are you willing and brash enough to fight and win? I am!

Where we go one, we go all.

Part I: The Constitution of the USA

Part II: Individual Liberty

Part III: Classic Examples of Socialists’ Follies

Wake Up, America!

wake up america, socialism, racismI will touch on a number of areas in this article in which a wake-up call is sorely needed and long overdue. I encourage you to read it all, resolve to make a difference while you can, and share your resolve with others!

Wake Up To Individual Responsibility

Let’s talk first about you as an individual. The 8 years under Barack Obama saw a drastic decline in jobs and a plummeting economy. Many even gave up the search for jobs and struggled to survive on government welfare. But our country is changing now. It’s a new day!

So why worry about what someone else has? You can now choose to use your time and energy to help yourself. If you need a job, try to qualify for some available job, or learn where you can get the training you need for that job as well as any job you might be considering. There are vocational schools, and job training schools, and some companies may even offer on-the-job training. Do what you have to do to become a productive citizen and job holder. Your self-worth and human dignity will have a chance to skyrocket! And above all, quit thinking of yourself as a victim!

Now, welfare is often needed for a time. But don’t depend upon welfare any longer than necessary. Your achievement level, and your self-worth suffer if you are jobless. A lack of self-worth (dignity) for a long period of time can lead to big trouble and poor judgement.

What is Racism?

Our country and its people are being bombarded too many cries of racism from too many people!  We need to define racism and define it correctly.

True racism should be defined as prejudiced or actions against a person based entirely on their race, color, ethnicity, or religion. This is wrong. Our Constitution declares this.

But there is a huge difference when the opinions and actions of any person violates the guaranteed rights and freedoms of another. Then it is not a matter of race, but of the violation of the human rights of another.

I am hearing loudly from too many people who falsely accuse others of racism, when the person being accused simply holds a different opinion from someone else. A difference of opinion does not constitute racism. And yet the Democrats Socialists, in an illegal and immoral manner, accuse those who politically disagree with them as being racist. This can never be acceptable in our country.

Any person who falsely accuses another of racism had better have proof – and the radical cries of racism I’ve heard all over the news lately are lacking that proof, in my opinion.

What is True Freedom?

Part of our American system is freedom within the law – freedom to think differently… But always to guarantee individual rights of others… staying within the nation’s Freedom Clause. Our laws, our Constitution, is the means by which all can have freedom, not just some.

Our Constitution guarantees freedom for all. When our country’s laws are broken by unfair cries of racism, then no one has any freedom of speech. Is our system perfect? No… But it isn’t perfect because people aren’t perfect. There has been only one perfect man who walked on earth… Jesus Christ… And they crucified him!!

When have we ever heard of a country with a dictator or King who guaranteed to each of its citizens peace and safety, the right to promote themselves, to raise their position financially, to have free speech, to have opportunity, to pass on to their children their possessions? We will come, full circle, back to the United States of America. Even the so-called democracies, as few as they are, are not the USA.

How did our country arrive at greatness? By promoting freedom within the laws!

Where Do Communism and Socialism Lead?

Socialism and Communism (Russian type) arrive at the same destination, once established. Big government, a ruling Elite, and a massive number of people in poverty, without most freedoms and without much hope.

I have a message for the Socialists of this country: the common people have finally figured out that the purpose of Socialism is to establish a ruling Elite, with a power structure that the common people cannot be a part of… Such a power structure promotes big government, very limited accountability, and the lowest level of freedom possible without an outright rebellion.

During the Obama years, job losses and manufacturing losses were very costly. This is what Socialism does, although there can be other factors as well. With Socialism at its peak, the common man has little hope. Just look at Venezuela today. Hyperinflation continues to run rampant, people are literally starving, and there are open, violent rebellions throughout the country.  Many are trying to escape the borders to another country where they hope to discover less horror than the reality they are facing in their homeland. This, my friend, is a snapshot of where Socialism will lead us.

President Trump may have caught the downturn in time. With Socialism, the common man can have no real hope. Socialism will never abandon big government and the return to the principles that made our country great.

Voters, Awake!

Lovers of freedom and opportunity for all; don’t vote for those whose party has specialized in empty and broken promises for decades. Find out exactly what candidates for office believe and why… And be aware that Socialism cannot possibly solve any government problem.

Scandal in High Places

We are uncovering perhaps the biggest government scandal of all times, wrongdoing by high government officials in the FBI and Department of Justice. Socialism has long tried to trash democracy and fair play, and election of Socialists can only lead to an absolute dictatorship.

After all, if you can’t trust your justice department to be impartial, then who can you trust?

The Left (liberals, Socialists and others) have also embraced violence in civil matters and have turned a blind eye to anarchism when it has served their selfish purposes. And the terms that Socialists have called honest citizens… racists, hate mongers, xenophobes, islamophobes, etc. do not befit honest members of society.

Don’t be fooled by their “new” name – Progressives – which sounds so forward thinking and benign. This is the current Democratic party – radical in their leanings and intent on regaining power and putting us back under poverty and dependence on big government.  My friends, the end result will be nothing short of disaster and loss of your freedoms, higher taxes, fewer jobs and severely restricted freedom of speech.

What is really happening is this… The Trump haters, Socialists, and the lawbreakers throw accusation with these false and hateful names, towards anyone who disagrees with the Socialist’s position. And they will attempt to demonize anyone who disagrees.

I have never been one to state an idea without a complete picture of my belief and why I feel the way I do! The Socialists I have observed avoid all such reason. They will deny, blame, lie, cheat and steal to deceive, instead of simply giving an honest answer.

Let Me Be Clear

I do not say that all who have a liberal point of view on any number of issues agree with the Socialistic position. What I AM saying is that the current Democratic party has moved radically Left, all the while cloaking their agenda with code words that “sound good”, and are engaging in outright deception to regain control of this country. In case you want to study further, just look up Hillary Clinton’s mentor, Saul Alinsky, and his “Rules for Radicals”. It’s true folks – this is the trail we’ve been going down, and the destination is nothing short of utter chaos and loss of freedoms for the American people.

You Are Never Too Old to Be a Student

I happen to be a student of the Bible. It helps me to explain and understand many things. There are particular phrases in the Bible that are really comparisons and not literal facts. Much of this comes from language interpretation.

Just like in the Bible, one must interpret the true meaning of the statement. Following is an very old truism, not from the Bible, but true nonetheless…  

“He who steals my purse steals trash… But he who steals my good name steals that which not enriches him, but makes me poor, indeed.”

The Left, the Socialists, steal the good name, (or at least attempt to) from all who disagree with them on anything, and give them no chance to explain their position.

In the Bible, Jesus calls out the Scribes and Pharisees for their behavior. Jesus said also, that the Jewish religious leaders washed the outside of the cup and left the inside dirty and filthy. Can you not see, dear reader, a definite resemblance to the behavior of the Socialists, individually and as a group?

Can you also see that calling a particular party (in this case, the Socialist Democrats) out on wrong behavior does not make one worthy of hatred and violence?

Demonize, Discredit and Deny

And now back to the Socialists… Every vile trick known to man has been tried by the Left to discredit and to demonize their enemies – good Americans. I personally saw what Socialism was doing many years ago. Many are just now realizing it. It’s just that too many good, honest people weren’t necessarily students of government back through the years.

It is now time for those who love liberty to see what I see. Socialism is opposed to law and order, to personal freedom, to common sense, and to national security. Socialists do not care about freedom for all. They care about protecting a form of government by an Elite ruling class, that is essentially no better than a third-world dictatorship!! We see, especially of late, the half-truths, lies, made up stories, interconnected wrongdoings, and a swamp-ridden, out-of-control government at the top of some of our agencies. The liberal-left is determined to defy law & order, responsibility and transparency even at the top level of our law enforcement.

I am hoping that we will be seeing the demise of the present Democratic party, with their greedy paws, trying to trash our country’s values. No one’s reputation is safe, no one’s gains in life are applauded, no one can begin to fathom the damage to the American way of life when Socialists are in control. Let me repeat what I have written in prior articles… If you are not safe and secure… You are not free! You can have freedom if you have law and order. If you have no freedom, you have no opportunity, and you have no safety, either.

It’s All About Liberty

A citizen of the USA has a life that is all about liberty. The Revolutionary War won our freedom and loosed us from the shackles of the King of England. You cannot have liberty for all and trash the liberty of some. You cannot have liberty for anyone without laws that cherish liberty for all.

Socialism is not about freedom for all. It is about freedom for self-appointed leaders, and little or nothing but dependence for the rest of us.

As I view TV today and listen to the liberal guests on many programs, the Socialistic response is completely true to form. Socialistic liberals will never answer direct questions. They bring up a whale to hide the hidden deeds of a rat.

The Socialists have taken a wonderful country to the brink of the cliff, ready to be pushed over the edge. Can we forgive them? Yes!! But the laws of our land must stand!! Liberals are guilty of trashing our Constitution and stealing our liberties. Their actions must be punished, regardless of who they are, and what their position is or has been. This includes Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and all other guilty parties. If they are not punished and severely punished, then we will have sent a message to everyone that there is no justice!!

The Ploy to Drop the Hammer

I never realized that the constant hammering of words could perhaps change the meaning of such words in public perception. The Socialist believes that you are racist if in any way you disagree with him. You are the subject to many scandalous names if you dare disagree with a Socialist. They hope by such repetitive hammering to convince others to agree with them on their narcissistic views.

So the Socialists of today are the absolute enemy of truth, freedom, safety, opportunity and well-being. It has become all about freedom for the Socialists and not for anyone else.

You Still Have a Voice – You Still Have a Vote!

The plain truth is that unless the voters of today understand the Socialist agenda and fight against it, our country is lost! And unless the truth and the freedoms of our country are once again taught at an early age, we will be fighting in our streets for our survival and for our national truth.

Dear readers… What truths are you willing to fight for??
