Today’s article of interest: California – The Physical Collapse of a Social State.
We are getting a first hand look at what Democrat Socialism looks like: Rampant homelessness, rampant drug use, lawlessness, elitists owning all the housing, prices so out of control that the middle class is destroyed. Unparalleled regulations and extreme taxation. The state is in trouble. It is failing.
As Jarrett Stepman of The National Interest notes, “What’s clear from my observations at Socialism 2019 is that traditional Marxists have successfully melded their ideology with the identity politics and culture war issues that animate modern liberalism—despite still being quite far from the beliefs of the average citizen.” (Source)
Before you think the rest of America will escape California’s fall, think again. At least 15 states are so far gone their governments passed bills disenfranchising their voters in Presidential elections by throwing ALL votes in the same pot as whatever candidate wins the national popular vote.
The intent has TWO phases.
The first phase is to discourage conservative people in usually blue states from ever voting in the first place, thereby preventing the state from being flipped red in an upwelling of national pride and confidence in true American leaders like Donald Trump.
The second phase, the part everyone already understands, is to take conservative votes and add them to votes for the OTHER candidate, a most heinously foul usurpation and disenfranchisement of voting rights if there ever was one.
That’s not even the tip of the iceberg. After reviewing 338 bills signed by Colorado’s Demoncrap Governor Polis, I realized the liberals are attacking our nation on ALL fronts, all at once.
Finally, almost none of it is their own design. It’s an amalgam of the standard Communist Manifesto upon which the U.S.S.R. and literally dozens of other communist countries failed and the Cloward-Piven Strategy designed to overload the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a blitheringly idiotic pipe-dream socialist system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.” Thus, one failure piled on top of the other.
Politicians simply can NOT be THAT stupid, can they?
Well, yes they can, and for two reasons.
On the one hand, half of Americans have a clue. The other half are blithering idiots. Guess which half keeps voting for Demoncraps? The only solution there is to keep up the education efforts. Many have come around. Sadly, most were deprived of rational, critical thinking skills, not to mention the skills involving economics, finance, law and history people require to make informed decisions. Even worse, many of them were brainwashed throughout K-12 to the point where everything they learned was centered around and rooted in the Demoncrap agenda to which 80% or more public school teacher vehemently adhere.
On the other hand, most people who aspire to become politicians are power-hungry control freaks, anyway. Regardless of which side they’re on, they’re convinced they’re right and largely immune to feedback, except, perhaps, the feedback of being removed from office.
Thus, the solution to the ills facing America today is simple: STOP electing Demoncraps. In order to do that, however, one has to switch from agenda-driven thinking and candidate selection to critical thinking and rational candidate selection.
Unfortunately, that’s a very difficult thing for most people to do, particularly after living a lifetime of believing in the unsustainable liberal agenda upon which they were raised.
