A few days ago, I posted a video of CEO Steve Wynn railing on the Obama administration for their socialist, anti-capitalist policies. One commenter expressed his disappointment that Mr. Wynn didn’t give any examples of how Obama’s policies are contributing to and causing the continued economic decline.

Lucky for us, iainswife, who blogs over at Shout First, Ask Questions Later and is a contributor to the fabulous Potluck blog points us to a great article in the American Spectator that provides many facts to back up Mr. Wynn’s conference call assessment of President Obama’s socialist policies.

As to what I described in the comment thread as “uncertainty,” my good friend The CL from The Classic Liberal helpfully pointed me to Robert Higgs, who, in 1997 wrote a paper coining the term “Regime Uncertainty” to describe how the socialist policies of the New Deal had a chilling effect on the recovery from the Great Depression. Those similar policies, now employed and expanded by Obama, are having the same predictably disastrous effect today.

Hopefully these links will get you on the path to understanding the effects of an over-expanding federal government, the  incremental destruction of property rights that go along with larger government, the intended transformation of our capitalist economic system to a socialist one and ultimately, an understanding of the loss of liberty for the whole of any nation that implements socialistic policies and programs.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

C. S. Lewis, God in the Dock, p. 292.

Our Constitution was not instituted to save us from ourselves. Our Constitution was written, mainly, to protect us from our government. It’s time we remembered that and elect people who understand it as well. The alternative is not one worth savoring.

Lately, we bloggers have been focused on the national elections in our attempts to reclaim and restore our Constitutional Republic. The people who belong to the Progressive States Network are working against that goal at all levels, including the State Legislatures.

As noted in the previous post, 1000 Progressives in State Governments,

The PSN is a network of Progressive organizations that share Obama’s goal of the ‘fundamental transformation of America’

and as noted on the new Socia.list page, the members of the PSN Board of Directors include a bonafide “who’s-who” of Progressive/Socialist/Communist thought.

The Socia.list is depressingly long.

It shows just how much work we have to do to vote these people out and restore sanity to our Republic, but it can be done. Here’s how, as I see it:

1. Make note of who your representatives are along with their opponents.

2. Get that list to your TEA Party and Republican Party leaders for distribution.

3. Get out the vote!

4. Watch the Progressives lose office on Nov. 2.

5. Rest a bit.

6. Get back to work!

There are still some Progressives left, but we will have hopefully ousted enough to make the rest fear for their jobs. Go forth and strengthen the organizations you’ve joined and or started. Two years remain before we can truly turn the ship of state in the right direction, towards a restoration of our Founding Principles and a Constitutional Republic.

The new Socia.list page can be found at the top of the blog, just under the masthead and to the right of the Shoppe tab.

Matt, of Conservative Hideout fame has got to be the hardest working man in the blogosphere, next to R.S. McCain and Smitty of course. Over the last year and a half of the failed Obama administration’s regime he’s put together a definitive description of the trappings of Obamacare, and if you’re not aware, it isn’t pretty. I use the word “trappings” with purpose, because that is exactly what the monstrosity is, a trap sprung on a beguiled public who stood there with their hands out waiting for the benevolent dictator to “give them something, anything.” Well, what we all got is just another form of slavery. How ironic then, for the most racially driven president in our history, who likened himself to Lincoln on so many occasions to actually reverse the trend away from freedom and in effect enslave the entire population with so much debt and bureaucracy, much of which we are still waiting to be enacted.

I for one am working and praying for repeal of Obamacare, which is nothing more than a blasphemy of our Democratic Republican values.

These links will also be included in the resources on the Prime page along with the worthy links from other fine blogs and references.

Please take the time to thank Matt for his excellent work.

One doesn’t need to look far when searching for tangible results of Democrat social policy. As a matter of fact, you need only look to Detroit for a prime example of liberal social engineering and the destructive effect it has on a city. Once a thriving economy, Detroit has sadly become the poster child for “What Not to Do” when it comes to government, as Steve from Motor City Times tells us in this collection of posts documenting the once vibrant manufacturing center’s destruction by a government under 50 years of Liberal Democrat control.

Let’s not let this happen to America as a whole. Let’s learn the lessons of Detroit.
