I know I haven’t written anything in a while. Too much going on at work and at home to commit any brain cells to the task. I’ve also been preparing for the coming zombie apocalypse and attempting to convince my closest friends that their world is about to be flipped inside out if the newly elected officials don’t turn the tide tsunami of socialist, infanticidal fantasists running rampant in the halls of government and the main stream media.

We must become hyper-vigilant to any expression of progressive thought or action and take steps to combat it immediately at every instance. We must continue to recruit the newly awakened to the cause of saving America from within. The other option will surely lead us to riots in the streets much like we witnessed recently in Greece. Make no mistake, those people took to the streets because their government sold them socialism and either a) they now realize it is a lie, that the ponzi scheme has run its course, or more likely, b) they are whining about the well running dry and want another handout. Either way, the people have become slaves to their government. The idea of self reliance has been tossed out the window.

The more recent rioting in Tunisia and Egypt, in my opinion, have less to do with socialism than outright despotism, which is the next phase of any socialistic government. Unfortunately, uprisings, even ones calling for a democratic republic can be hijacked by outside influences, as could be the case with the Muslim Brotherhood attempting to move in to take power in the coming vacuum.

The problem with socialism is that you eventually, run out of other people’s money.

There is a simple fact that must be recognized as such. Utopia can not be found or created in a world under human control or creation. Humans are flawed and anything we create will be flawed as well. Giving too much power to too few people will always and inevitably result in abuse of that power. That is why the constitution should be held as sacred. The founders knew of our imperfect nature and put safeguards in place to hold government in check, on a leash, so to speak, and like a sandstone statue in the wind, the constitution was immediately set upon by the winds of ne’er-do-wells and progressives to erode the fingers that hold that leash.

I pray for our country and our people. I’m worried about my family, my neighbors and their children if we continue on this path of gimme gimme gimme more government with no thought of where the government gets it to give and no shame in it when the receiver is aware of the deal.

Entitlements and wealth redistribution, welfare, class envy and reparations, open borders, government takeovers, political correctness, crony capitalism and over regulation by nameless, faceless minions must cease, or we will cease to exist as a sovereign nation, what’s worse is, I fear we teeter on the brink of absolute despotism should our situation decline much further. The last hundred years of constant abuse has beaten a once proud and mighty standard to the point of withering tatters. Can anyone look at the state of America and the world and honestly tell me the current model is sustainable? To do so is to lie to yourself and to your fellow Americans.

I believe:

We must return to self reliance.

We must lose the idea that equality of opportunity is the same as equality of outcome.

In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all – security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again.

We must retake the high ground in our institutions of learning and in the halls of power, leading in word and deed in what is the right and true way to live ones life, not feeding off the labors of others but creating for oneself that which is desired.

This is what true Americans have done in the past and still wish to do, if we can shake loose the shackles our government would choke us with.

Let us honor those who have given their lives for the ideas of America’s founding by devoting our lives to the return of those principles.

    Thank you so much for the linkage.

    Glad you liked my piece, homie.

    • robot January 31, 2011 at 4:45 pm

      Like your style Shamus. Keep up the good work, brother.

  • Bob Belvedere January 30, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    Amen, indeed.

    Thanks for the Robo-Love [and I mean that in a manly way].

    • robot January 31, 2011 at 4:46 pm

      Robo-Love is always manly. Even when directed at a man. It’s just the way of things.

  • theCL January 30, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    Freedom is the only way my friend. The only way.

    • robot January 31, 2011 at 4:47 pm

      Absolutely, CL. FREEDOM!

  • steve January 30, 2011 at 7:07 pm

    Agreed! Freedom is the answer. Thanks for the link ‘Bot.

    • robot January 31, 2011 at 4:51 pm

      Steve, God granted us free will, otherwise we’d all be mind-numbed robots. :)

  • Kid January 30, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    Not to depress any of you fine folks, but it’s not going to happen. We are on the path to socialist hell and there is no political majority to actually turn the steering wheel. The most we will get is a slight push on the brakes such as a 78 year old lady might do while traveling at 43 miles per hour with a right hand sweeper ahead that could be taken at 123 mph.

    Well, when you break it down you have three kinds of people.

    Those who want more government control
    Those who want less and less government control
    Those too stupid to decide which.

    I hear these folks, politicians and otherwise, who are talking about fiscal responsibilty, lower spending, balance the budget, create jobs, bla bla yada. While these might be short term ‘good’, they accomplish little.

    We must repeal and/or replace these liberal socialist programs that have gone unchallenged since LBJ. If we don’t, then whatever is done will be made moot in 4, 8 or 12 years when the democrats gain control again and continue where they left off.

    Someone wake me up when we throttle the lawyers who destroy the HC system, or throttle the FCC or EPA and let them know that they are Not the most powerful entities in America. Tell the Muslims that we don’t recognize CAIR, and as long as their brothers do violence, we WILL look at them with a more suspicious eye, etc, blabla yadda…

    Because what we got going on in this country is akin to a Kindergarten class full of A-holes.

    I hope I didn’t come on too strong eh..

    • robot January 31, 2011 at 4:59 pm

      I’m with you, Kid. The road ahead is fraught with peril, and not the Monty Python type either, I’m just adding my voice to the throng. What else can we do? I can’t sit back and watch it happen. Once you see something this terrible, it’s impossible to un-see it and then, you must make a decision, to do something about it, or not. I’d rather fight it with words than see an Egypt or Greek style uprising.

      LBJ? heh, lets go back to pre-Wilson as long as we’re dreaming the dream, but pre-LBJ would be a good start.

      • Kid January 31, 2011 at 8:58 pm

        I wasn’t trying to void your post. We must continue to try to be heard and to get people to think. I know I will. Sorry if I came off the other way. I’m just Trying to get people to understand what the real problem is. 8 years of anything that doesn’t void some liberal programs and the dems get back in and just start up where they left off.

        Full speed ahead ! ;-]

        • robot January 31, 2011 at 11:07 pm

          I know, Kid. Your points are valid, and scary, and should be food for thought and action.

      • theCL January 31, 2011 at 9:17 pm

        If we’re dreaming the dream, I want to go back to the Articles of Confederation. 8-O

        Well, obviously, the Constitution didn’t work out.

        • robot January 31, 2011 at 11:08 pm

          If only the Constitution were adhered to, then, well… I think that’s what we’re fighting for…

  • Matt January 30, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    Thanks for the link Robot. Much appreciated.

    • robot January 31, 2011 at 5:00 pm

      Hi Matt. Sorry the links have been so few lately. Me and the one legged man are trying to see who can kick the most a$$ right now…

  • Gorges Smythe January 30, 2011 at 11:39 pm

    Good post. I gave my readers a heads-up on it, too.

  • Woodsterman January 31, 2011 at 8:21 am

    OR … the takers are running out of those to take from.

    • robot January 31, 2011 at 5:03 pm

      Yea, Odie, the takers have the biggest Uncle in the world. Uncle Sam Corleone. He’s got an offer you can’t refuse.

  • Red January 31, 2011 at 10:32 am

    You’re preparing for the coming zombie apocalypse? We’re preparing for the coming zombie apocalypse! ;-D
    That’s what it’s going to take really, (taking the higher ground and educating our youth, being more self-reliant — pretty much a lot of what the LDS church teaches–self-reliance).

    • robot January 31, 2011 at 5:12 pm

      Ha! I knew it. What a coincidence! I always pictured you as a cave girl. :)
      Pray for the best and prepare for the mindless undead is my new motto. I’ve almost completed assembling my latest invention: The Zombie Destruction Laser and Corn Dog Warmer. Two settings: Cook and Fry, so it works on the mindless hordes in either position. They’ll be available in the Shoppe after beta testing this weekend!

      On a less silly note, I’m courting the idea of building a greenhouse this March. My dog isn’t going to allow me to have a true garden. He’s a little too rambunctious.

      • Red February 3, 2011 at 4:08 pm

        When that ZDL/Corndog Warmer hits the market I’ll be the first in line ;-) We’re homesteading as well. AFter this freeze we’ll be tilling the ground ready to plant. No doggies outdoors so that’s our advantage although I think a greenhouse would be better. I want chickens!

  • left coast rebel January 31, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    Hear, hear! Well said, Robot. Don’t forget – we’re all in this together

    • robot January 31, 2011 at 5:18 pm

      Thanks Rebel, you’re correct. Franklin was, as always, spot on when he said “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

      Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the web.

  • […] Robot: Freedom is the Answer […]

  • Linda February 4, 2011 at 10:58 am

    well said Mr. Roboto,

    Domo Arigato

    and I’m right with ya on the too busy thing.

    we all do what we can and hope it’s enough
