Is the National Socialist Left losing its’ ‘collective’ mind?

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Albert Einstein

The past few days have seen a decided up-tick in odd behaviour of the nation’s socialist Left.

Whitworth Professor: Would Killing GOP Congressman Who Voted For Trumpcare Be ‘Self-Defense’?

Democrats Plan ‘Sustained Protest,’ Warn GOP Lawmakers ‘Be Afraid’

Now, it’s always been the case that since the ideological constructs of their collective faith have repeatedly failed they’ve been verging on insanity. Some of them openly advocate a set of ideological ideas that are at least 500 years old and that fly in the face of basic morality. This is an ideology that has seen the death and oppression of billions of people around the world that could be rightfully labelled evil incarnate no matter what it’s been called – Socialism, Communism, Marxism, Fascism, Maoism, Chávezism, etc. While others repeat the false premise that these ideological ideas haven’t really been tried yet..

Perhaps this is the vestiges of desperation on their part given that they know in their heart of hearts that their long cherished little red books an Che T-shirts have led them astray. Being on an ideological dirt road and facing the inevitable ‘dead end’ sign can have a jarring effect on one’s psyche.

They have invested some much emotional energy and thought into fooling themselves into thinking that their collective ideals can work with the right people in charge that the reality of the situation has pushed them over the brink.

Most sane people can read the writing on the Berlin wall to know that the left’s immoral collectivist ideas were never going to work. They know that collectivism will fail because it very unscientifically ignores basic economics and human nature. And that the only way to get them to work is with the infamous ‘red terror’, secret police and concentration camps.

But our comrades on the nation’s socialist left refuse to acquiesce to logic and reality. Instead of acknowledging that a few hundred years of experimentation and failure of their cherished base ideology have shown it to be non-functional. They instead try to point to small, culturally homogeneous countries that don’t have to pay for their own defense as ‘proof’ their immoral ideology can work…. somehow. This while they turn a blind eye to the 100 million deaths that have resulted from their base ideology.
So as some of the nation’s socialist left become further unhinged, hopefully others in this group will wake up to what their comrades are doing and saying. That perhaps that finally many of those on the left will see this and question their faith in Marx and turn away from it – forever.

Suffice it to say, there will always be those die-hard leftist ideologues who insist they aren’t ideologues who will parrot the slogans of the storied communist past and still think that their collective faith has not failed them. Many of these have a vested interest in trying to further that which has so spectacularly failed, Bernie Sanders comes to mind for some reason. But that small cadre of collectivists can always be shuttered away in their own rubber rooms, to leave the rest of us alone in peace and liberty.

 


 

 

Debunking the myth that the national socialist left actually cares about people.

“Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it.” Milton Friedman

Recently the chairman of the DNC belched forth a profanity laced tirade that the Republicans “don’t give a s**t about people”:

This does engender the question with regard to the Left’s underlying motivations. Why is it always assumed that national socialist left really cares about people? A close examination of the results of their agenda in a few examples from recent history will prove it is they who are uncaring.

First of all, we will dispense with the socialist-left’s perennial excuse of having Good intentions for the repeated and abject failure of their agenda. At some point, one has to look at the cold hard reality of results instead of mere intent. Time and time again it can be shown that the Left’s socialist national agenda did nothing to help people, despite their repeated exhortations to the contrary. The fact that they have not changed to that which actually works shows that they are truly uncaring about the plight of the people under their rule.

Let us take a look at the results of the Left’s socialist national agenda this is ostensibly meant to help people and see if the truth of the situation bears this out.

Did LBJ’s ‘Great Society’ function as advertised?

Let’s look at the analysis from the Heritage Foundation: The War on Poverty After 50 Years

In his January 1964 State of the Union address, President Lyndon Johnson proclaimed, “This administration today, here and now, declares unconditional war on poverty in America.” In the 50 years since that time, U.S. taxpayers have spent over $22 trillion on anti-poverty programs. Adjusted for inflation, this spending (which does not include Social Security or Medicare) is three times the cost of all U.S. military wars since the American Revolution. Yet progress against poverty, as measured by the U.S. Census Bureau, has been minimal, and in terms of President Johnson’s main goal of reducing the “causes” rather than the mere “consequences” of poverty, the War on Poverty has failed completely. In fact, a significant portion of the population is now less capable of self-sufficiency than it was when the War on Poverty began.

[Our emphasis]

The lens of history informs us this is not the case, despite the myriad promises put forth in the sale of the ‘War on Poverty’. Despite $22 trillion in wealth redistribution there hasn’t been any change for the nation’s poverty stricken.

Instead of actually caring and helping people, this ‘wealth transfer’ took opportunities for economic growth away that would have actually lifted the people out of poverty. But then again, had the people done this on their own they would no longer have any need for the nation’s socialist left.

More recently, how well did the people fair under Obamacare?

Again from the Heritage Foundation and the Daily signal:The Daily Signal Documents the Real-Life Consequences of Obamacare

Americans are struggling due to the failing health care law, and The Daily Signal’s stories are making their way into the national debate, in some cases because they have gone unreported or outright ignored by other media outlet.

Here is a sample of The Daily Signal’s unique and original reporting on the issue.

Meet 2 Hurting Americans Who Are Ready for Congress to Repeal Obamacare

In 6 Charts, the Rising Costs of Obamacare Rates

In 3 Years, His Insurance Premiums Double as Options Decline Under Obamacare

The 16th Obamacare Co-Op Has Collapsed. Here’s How Much Each Failed Co-Op Got in Taxpayer-Funded Loans.

Does that sampling even sound close to the national socialist left helping people with their much vaunted Obamacare?

Finally, there is the issue of Democratically run cities and People control.

Can anyone seriously argue that people have been helped in cities under decades of leftist rule? Can anyone make the case that depriving people of their civil right of self-defense has kept them safe? The nation’s socialist left can only offer an unending string of excuses for the abject failure of their policies in cities such as Detroit and Chicago.

From the Cato Institute on the causes of the destruction of Detroit: Government, Not Globalization, Destroyed Detroit

Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm blames “free trade” for the decline of Detroit’s auto industry and thus the city itself.

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman suggests that “for the most part the city was just an innocent victim of market forces.”

Another MSNBC contributor, Michael Eric Dyson, suggests that “racial animus” was the real culprit.

Then there is the issue that should more aptly labelled people control. It’s always one of those amusing exercises to ask one of our esteemed members of the nation’s socialist left where their ideas of people control have actually worked. Most often the response will either be statistical lies or excuses for it’s failure in cities such as Chicago.

The fact is the Left’s theories on how the world should work redound badly on the lowest rung of the economic strata. It is the poor and downtrodden of the inner cities with strict gun control that bear the brunt of the magical thinking of the national socialist left with regard to one’s right of self defense. And once again we can see that if they really cared about those people, they would reverse their disastrous policies. But they refuse to do so even with the evidence staring them in the face.

Again from the Cato Institute: The Costs and Consequences of Gun Control

At some point down through the decades, it should have occurred to the leftists that their socialist national agenda does not work. The evidence has been in front of everyone for years, and yet the left ignores or even denies it’s existence at times. Therefore, one can only draw the inescapable conclusion that they are unconcerned about the horrific results of their agenda on the people they profess to care about.

Conversely, if they really were concerned about people they would take responsibility for the effects of what they have done in the past and make changes to avoid these results in the future. Thus far they have not admitted to the culpability of their actions of the past, nor have they taken any steps to alter their socialist national agenda into something that actually works.

Good intentions mean nothing in the face of misery brought on by those who purport to care about people. The facts are clear, the socialist national agenda of the left hurts the people they supposedly want to help. If they truly cared they would change their ideology, the fact that they do not is prime fascia evidence that they.. in the words of Tom Perez: “don’t give a s***t about people”

Let’s give it a go with TrumpCare 2.0*

[*Formerly known as CruzCare]

From the The Resurgent and Redstate:

 So here’s the idea in a nutshell:

1. First, repeal Obamacare entirely. One simple law that ends it, perhaps with the stipulation that some of its provisions be phased out rather than abruptly halted. The phasing must be complete by the end of Trump’s first term, however, or you are inviting disaster.
2. Mandate insurance be portable, meaning it isn’t tied to your employment.
3. Mandate insurance be continuous and renewable, meaning insurance companies are not allowed to jack up your rates or costs because you get sick – that defeats the whole purpose of insurance.
4. Open up the insurance market across state lines – competition will decrease costs as it always does.
5. Allow people to buy low-cost catastrophic coverage, including the use of health savings accounts.
