Like many of my fellow Awakened Americans, I was blessed to spend time over the holidays with family and friends, some whom belong to the less informed or ill-informed among us whose only news sources are the alphabet networks or random conversations with know-it-all leftists parroting the daily talking points. These encounters mainly serve to reinforce what I already perceive about our left-leaning opposition but at times shed some light on otherwise unthought-of nuances in the mindset of many leftists who at times exhibit the mental capacity of your common house plant or the occasional bird bath, but perhaps I’m being too harsh with house plants.
The indoctrination from our education system and MSM is apparent in many of their statements and is ever difficult for someone like myself to dismiss without rebuttal, but at a family gathering and having dove headlong into the breach on many such occasions to no avail reminds me that it’s a pointless endeavor. One reason is the inescapable fact that leftists are often unaware of how far to the left their ideological pendulum has swung, if they are aware of their own ideological leanings at all. They live within a brilliant, albeit deceitful, curtain of disillusion the elitists have constructed atop the shaky foundation of feelings and emotion rather than intellect and reason. Having no solid facts on which to base their views, they revert to a sad whirlpool of circular thought and diversionary tactics whenever a verifiable fact is raised.
- You’re a filthy Republican! (Not! I’m a libertarian/conservative!)
- You want my Grandma eating cat food! (Yummm!)
- But, but, but… Bush! (Yea, let’s complain about his spending by tripling it. Lets protest the Patriot Act by expanding it and passing the NDAA. You lose!)
- Hey! Look at the pretty unicorn! (Utopia!)
- Wait! You’re using Bullet Points! We must ban the use of high capacity Bullet Points!!!
And yet, even as they succumb to their feelings when justifying leftist imaginary projected outcomes, they will often cite a politician’s reported “intellect” as the reason for supporting their policies, as if the mere presence of intelligence precludes any malicious intent or illogical conclusions.
- Bill Clinton was a Rhodes Scholar! (Yawn.)
- Obama got a Nobel Prize! (Yawn.)
- I wrote-in Hillary! — (?)
- You’re using more bullet points!!!
This overwhelming need for hero worship, deserved or not is, I think, a confirmation of the analysis posed by Mark Levin in Ameritopia wherein he points to the Statist’s goals of a utopian world constructed for us by the educated elite. It points to a sheepish desire to not be forced to think but to blindly accept what one is allowed to do or possess simply because someone supposedly smarter said it is the right thing to do. After all, they are smarter than we are. They said so!
It is foreign to me that those who blindly follow this philosophy don’t fundamentally understand that such communal thinking is the antithesis of personal freedom. What these people have falsely been taught to believe is that utopian beliefs, aka: Socialism/Statism/Communism, can’t long exist within the same framework as the American Republic’s original form of government. The two ideas cannot be more opposed to each other. One cannot have just a bit of Statism, for Statism, like a cancer, must consume the entire host in order to succeed. And that success does not take into account the individual’s well being, only the well being of the State. Even at the end of such a progression, what does it benefit a State if, in the end it implodes to the detriment of all involved? Such is the proven outcome of any Statist government ever implemented.
And as long as I’m in rant mode…
Another fallacy I love to see ignored by my low (no) information brethren is the idea that the national debt and spending have no effect on our lives. They would love to believe that government budgets have no correlation to the household budget or corporate bank account or government’s manipulation of the value of our currency. Since government can simply print its own money doesn’t mean it is acceptable or ethical to do so. Quite the opposite, yet they continue to do so with little or no regard to what effect that has on your money’s worth, as if monetizing the debt will not lead to uncontrolled inflation or that if left unchecked has a very real chance of crashing the US and eventually the world economy. I’m no economist but even a lowly robot can see the writing on the wall.
Why can’t they?
Why WON’T they?
I’ll tell you why.
Ostrich Syndrome, That’s why.
Because the indoctrinated leftists WANT to believe what they’ve been told is the truth. Because, hey, if those “smart” politicians and policy wonks don’t know what they are doing, then no one can possibly know or understand what to do and we are doomed because, again, the leftist sheeple don’t want to think for their selves. They’ve relinquished all decision making to the elites, remember? They CAN’T think for themselves. The elite have told them NOT to. According to the Statist, they aren’t capable of it.
This is by design.
Here is a quote I found while taking Hillsdale College’s Constitution 201. I think it speaks volumes about today’s situation.
Woodrow Wilson said of the European States in “The Study of Administration” Nov. 1886:
“They sought so to perfect their machinery as to destroy all wearing friction, so to sweeten their methods with consideration for the interests of the governed as to placate all hindering hatred, and so assiduously and opportunely to offer their aid to all classes of undertakings as to render themselves indispensable to the industrious. They did at last give the people constitutions and the franchise; but even after that they obtained leave to continue despotic by becoming paternal. They made themselves too efficient to be dispensed with, too smoothly operative to be noticed, too enlightened to be inconsiderately questioned, too benevolent to be suspected, too powerful to be coped with. All this has required study; and they have closely studied it.”
Paternal Despotism is the current condition of the American experiment.
Praise the Lord? Or praise Obama? Given the “Government is the only thing that we all belong to” theme of the DNC conference in Charlotte, NC this week and the “non-sanctioned” posters being hawked by vendors outside the DNC, I think it’s obvious who the Democrats would like us to bow to, and it isn’t the Lord Jesus Christ.
The month of August includes a photograph of Obama’s birth certificate with the words “Heaven sent.”
The president was born on Aug. 4th.
The entry also includes a photograph of Obama along with a passage of Scripture from the New Testament.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life,” the entry read — referencing John 3:16.
This is a continuing tactic used by the Obama team and their supporters. It is offensive and disturbing to Constitutionalists and Christians alike. Americans do not worship our president, nor should we be encouraged to. It’s also telling that the DNC Platform removed references to God and Jerusalem while mentioning Obama by name 38 times and referring to him around 200. See – Democrats Remove ‘God-Given’ From Platform, Remove References to Jerusalem
The corruption in the Republican Party can no longer be ignored. I recieved a message today and a link to the video evidence from Heidi Thiess concerning the Republican Rules Committee fight that occurred during the first days of the recent RNC convention:
Calling all Conservatives: watch this UPDATE ON REPUBLICAN FLOOR FIGHT. The real story is getting out. Please help spread the word. Have you seen this video of Boehner’s SCRIPTED response to the floor vote? Unfettered, incontrovertible corruption! Please help share his video everywhere because folks still don’t understand the impact of these changes nor the corruption that the RNC and top Republican officials engaged in to shove this down our throats.
The bottom line: these rules would have crushed Reagan in ’76 and if left unchanged mean we’ll never get a conservative choice (like a Reagan) again. We must fight back!
Watch the TelePrompter that PROVES corruption:
Thanks to Heidi and to Ben Swann for following this story.

Her parents must be so proud.
While the rest of the country is struggling with a real unemployment rate of +16%, the unending attacks on working class Americans in the forms of Obamacare’s coming tax hikes in 2013 and beyond and Obama issuing an unconstitutional Executive Order allowing illegal immigrants to steal American jobs by granting amnesty in the form of deferred deportation passports, I’m sure we, as Texans can all be proud of state representative Mary Gonzalez’s latest announcement that she’s decided that she is gender neutral or “pansexual” or something.
Get out of our congress, you self-servicing, pubicity-hound. Why in the world would you wait until AFTER the election to announce your self-proclaimed androgynous perversions unless you were aware of the repulsiveness of your lifestyle to the people you supposedly represent?
What, exactly, do you mean by “better” or “families,” for that matter? Does “it” think that announcing the choice to be perverse in some way actually improves the family unit? I’d like to see the study on that. Wait, don’t get any ideas. We don’t need government wasting more money we don’t have funding another useless report on such reprehensible activities.
Christian News Network reports:
Mary Gonzales, 28, who was believed to be the first openly lesbian state representative, befuddled many when she divulged the information in a recent interview with the Dallas Voice. Gonzales stated that she is not only “sexually-oriented” to both men and women, but also transgendered men and women. She explained that a pansexual is a person who does not believe in a “gender binary,” because “gender identity isn’t the defining part of my attraction.”
Gonzales said she kept the term in the closet while she ran for office and rather allowed people to classify her as a lesbian, but after beating out two challengers in the primaries and currently finding herself running unopposed by any Republican challengers, she wanted to clarify the matter.
Normally, I would not care what your activities are behind closed doors, but you, dear lady(?), since you are in position of legislative authority and have used your platform to proclaim and promote your lascivious lifestyle, force my hand to expose the activist use of your office for what it was not designed.
You have also assisted in exposing the democratic party as the association of reprobates they are. Thank you. I think.
I hope the people of El Paso remember your dishonesty and misuse of your office when it comes time for re-election.
…I take a break from the campaign trail to submit who I believe to be the winner of the contest. For if it is, in fact, a contest, our Fearless Reader: Barack Hussein Obama, is indeed the winner due to the fact he has declared war on every living soul in America and the free world for that matter. That the world just happens to contain a super-stretchy, pant-suit load of those feministic type people is not just a coincidence, it is a crucial part of the plan to divide and conjure. It also matters not that said feministas are clueless to Obama’s chicanery. In fact, it makes the offense ever more – um – offensive.
To illustrate, I give you the ultimate example of brain-washery.

And by blast, I mean in a bad way, as in the Constitution blown all to hell.
I found this little gem of a Pelosivator while rummaging through the Robo-Memory Banks last night. Not sure why I chose to post the others and not this one. Well, here you go, ’cause we need to be reminded of the arrogance, contempt and corruption on display back in 2009 and 2010 during the ObamaCare debate and passage. Remember when a million people took to the streets ad held peaceful protests against it and all they did was scoff at the TEA Party?
Yea. Me too.
