Self-Education on Election Issues/Candidates

I'm starting a series that focuses on what each candidate is FOR - something the media seems loath to let be known.

I plan to post about 1-2 times a week on this topic, as my schedule allows.  ALL candidates will be included, even the marginal, of ALL parties.

You see, I really do believe in the value of a Free Press.

Here's the first.

The social wrecking ball -- destroyer of liberty.

The crime issue is a good example of how public policy is always about trade-offs, Swing the wrecking ball through a social institution and something replaces it. It’s also an example showing how American Liberalism will inevitably end in authoritarianism. As traditional institutions are destroyed, the state flows into the void. The existing organic institutions grow weaker relative to the state, making them easier to knock over.[1]
The left loves to undermine, change, deride, neutralize, distort, and destroy in aid of trashing tradition, custom, law, and racial identity.

However, leftists are deluded when they think they (1) can identify what is good for other people, (2) know how to achieve their goals,[2] and (3) know exactly what the costs of their destructive (but beneficial!) policies will be.

But, especially, the costs of pursuing goals that leftists swoon over is not only unknown to them but never even considered by them. Only good can flow from "good" intentions and "right" thinking. Fallible people handed government power will exercise it dispassionately and justly because, well, because they are not rightists. The possibility of psychopaths and neurotics wielding power? Remote. End of discussion.

But authoritarian power is enabled by every stroke of the wrecking ball as the Z Man notes. The Constitution was trashed when its requirement that the president be a natural born citizen was ignored. Now we have a freakish man who ignores the Constitution in turn by conducting wars without the consent of Congress and who willfully declines to exercise his responsibilities to defend our borders against invaders.

The possibility of total power falling into the hands of lunatics or monsters is not considered. I have never, ever in my entire life heard a leftist in my presence express even so much as an awareness of the ghastly crimes of the left in the last century. And, yes that includes the crimes of the National Socialists who chose the word "socialists" for a reason. Can anyone guess why?

Toying with powerful government is every bit as dangerous as beginning an affair with your boss's wife. As that excellent question of the age of the internet goes, "What, in either instance, could go wrong?" The leftists' answer is, it will not surprise you, is "Nothing whatsoever. Not a damn thing."

[2] For leftists, achieving any goal must necessarily involve government action and only government.

AMAZING Story About Tom Wolfe!

I'm running late for work (well, what I - who is Teutonically ON TIME - meaning early for everything), but just can't stop reading this article about Tom Wolfe.

Who hasn't enjoyed his deft deflating the High & Mighty?

The article is almost as fascinating as Wolfe's writing.

Why Do We Argue Politics?

After all, so few people will change an entire way of life, based on the arguments.
What do I mean?  For many, self-identification is a gateway to relationships, self-esteem, cultural and religious affiliations.  Their friends all agree with them politically – “arguments”, for these people, amount to a spirited discussion of tactics and interpretation, not any kind of attempt to put forth the reasoning behind their stands.  OF COURSE, all rational people agree on general principles:

Free-floating, unsupported, baseless flapdoodle.

Yet again we are led to an understanding that immigration enhances the vitality of a nation while we avoid any facts to support this conclusion.

Dems in a nutshell.

The Democrat party can be broken down into five special interest groups:

Militant Blacks/minorities
Militant homosexuals
Militant femininsts
Militant environmental wackos

Despite past union successes none of the above represent normal, ordinary Americans. Instead, all of the above are represent radical socialism. The Democrat party, led by Obama is now a statist party.

If even half the remaining Democrat white blue collar workers abandon their party the Democrats will cease to exist as a viable political party.

White Rights

     These days you can visit a considerable number of places on the Web to hear racial rants, taunting, denunciations, and calls for this or that sort of “action.” The “Black Lives Matter” whores are only the currently most visible examples. Nearly all such sites are contemptible. But not all: some are worse. Clearly, this is an imbalance that demands to be redressed.

     Our esteemed Colonel Bunny has posted a statistics-laden piece that utterly refutes one of the most important lies currently bedeviling American society: the canard that American Caucasians of European descent, who will henceforth be referred to as whites, despise and are attempting to destroy the members of other races and ethnicities. The truly stunning thing about this deceit is that not only is it untrue, it’s the exact reverse of the truth:

  • Crimes against whites by others utterly overwhelm crimes by whites against others.
  • Whites have extended a hand of friendship and assistance to others, and have usually had it spat on, bitten, or swatted aside.
  • Peaceful white neighborhoods have ceased to be peaceful when non-whites have moved into them – and not because the whites have tried to drive them out.
  • Non-white racial and ethnic groups, though not united on other points, are utterly unanimous on this one: the “white devil” must be dispossessed and destroyed.
  • Despite all the above, any hint of protest, much less counter-organization by whites is denounced as illegitimate, inherently racist, and an expression of hatred.

     This isn’t exactly new. More than thirty years ago, a young woman of no small intelligence nor achievement told me that should my neighborhood experience racial admixture of the sort well known to promote disorder and loss of property values, it would be my moral duty to remain here and endure it, because...well, just because. She could not articulate any objective reason; it was entirely a matter of her opinion.

     At one of his recent campaign appearances, Democratic presidential aspirant Martin O’Malley was shouted down for suggesting, in response to the chants of “Black Lives Matter” agitators, that all lives matter. Bernie Sanders has had to cope with something similar. Persons who dare to suggest that contemporary whites have no responsibility for the statistical differences between whites’ aggregate wealth and achievement and the wealth and achievement of other races and ethnicities are routinely branded as racists, haters, and persons who want to bring back slavery.

     This mick-wop honky has had quite enough.

     We on the Right have often complained that we lack conservative politicians with actual spines. In reflecting on that notion, it struck me that our politicians, while not a perfectly representative sample of our ranks, nevertheless are drawn from it. Thus, an increase in our overall Backbone Quotient – BQ? – would surely elevate that of our elected officials. (At the very least, we should be trying our best to raise the “lower end” of the bell curve.)

     Racial/ethnic matters are a significant venue for such improvements. Today, virtually no one in public office or seek to enter it is willing to say, publicly, any of the following:

  • Violent crimes and crimes against property are overwhelmingly committed by non-whites.
  • Neighborhoods characterized by disorder, squalor, and violence are almost always non-white.
  • The quality of local schools is inversely proportional to their attendance by non-whites.
  • Non-white communities routinely shelter the lawbreakers among them against public justice.
  • Demands for “free stuff” emanate almost exclusively from non-whites and their mouthpieces.
  • Non-whites who point out such facts are demonized: “Oreos,” “Uncle Toms,” “race traitors,” etc.

     Despite all that we have the phenomenon of black racialist groups demanding that a few states be separated off into a new all-black nation...which, however, would be supported by funds from the rest of the country. We have groups such as Aztlan and La Raza demanding open immigration from the south, and that the American Southwest be returned to union with Mexico. Newest on the scene are the exclaves dominated by Middle Eastern Muslim “immigrants” and “refugees” where the writ of law does not run and it is unsafe for whites to tread.

     But don’t you dare to say that white lives matter...that the Knockout Game, a.k.a. “polar bear hunting,” is a real phenomenon...that illegal aliens from south of the border commit huge numbers of violent crimes, whether against one another or against whites...or that the degradation of our public facilities correlates strongly with the invasion of nearby neighborhoods by non-whites.

     It’s been said more times than anyone could count that it’s impossible to address a problem you aren’t willing to name. Someone must name it. It appears that the mantle has descended on me:

     The problem is non-whites.

     It’s time for a countermeasure. Indeed, it’s possible that we’re already too late. Nevertheless, I propose a blatant, in-your-face approach that makes plain that American whites will stand for no more:

Restore The Rights Of American Whites!

     Those rights include all the following:

  • Freedom of association, including the freedom to discriminate in buying and selling.
  • Freedom of enterprise, including the right to hire, fire, promote, and demote upon arbitrary criteria.
  • Repeal of all laws that distinguish any racial, ethnic, or religious group from any other, regardless of context.
  • The elimination of “stakeholder” laws and judicial presumptions that award privileges to recognized groups.
  • The right to form proprietary communities protected by enforceable covenants, including covenants that restrict residency according to race or ethnicity.

     Note that none of the above propositions would create legal privileges that only whites would enjoy. Indeed, the condition of the country at this time is such that only whites are, de facto, denied any of the above rights. Blacks and Hispanics can form race or ethnicity-based groups and associations without fear of legal penalty. Black employers can hire blacks exclusively without worrying about what the EEOC will say, and of course the same is true for Hispanics and Muslims. Though the laws would appear to weigh as heavily on non-whites’ discrimination against whites as the reverse, they’re not enforced when the target would be a non-white business or organization.

     It’s time not merely to halt the locomotive of racial-ethnic degradation, but to reverse it. If non-whites want the fruits of the American blessing that whites experience, let them earn those fruits on the same plane as we did. Those who’d prefer not to make the effort can choose among the other continents of the world...assuming those lands would have them.

Fun experiment.

As Pew Research cheerfully reports, previous immigrants were “almost entirely” European. But since Kennedy’s immigration act, a majority of immigrants have been from Latin America. One-quarter are from Asia. Only 12 percent of post-1965-act immigrants have been from Europe—and they’re probably Muslims.

Apparently, the “American experiment” is actually some kind of sociological trial in which we see if people who have no history of Western government can run a constitutional republic.

* * * *

No country has ever simply turned itself into another country like this.

The Democrats got the voters—and the country got 9/11, Fort Hood, the Boston Marathon bombing, clitorectomies, an explosion of gang rapes, child rapes, sex tourism, slavery, voodoo, Russell Brand, billions of taxpayer dollars stolen in Medicare and Medicaid scams, an epidemic of heroin deaths, soccer, bankrupt school districts and hospitals, overcrowded prisons, and endless tax hikes to pay for all the immigrant services, as small town after small town goes all-Mexican, or all-Somali or all-Hmong.

I'm Beginning to Lean Towards Several Candidates...

I’ve been only sporadically keeping up with the Republican “pit bull fights” – er, “debates”.  Not disinterested, just REALLY busy with other things in my life.
So, I really do depend on analysis of their performance from trusted sources on the Internet.  What do I consider a trusted source?
