The conventions of the two major political parties occur every four years. The script rarely changes. Each party attempts to present itself and its candidates…
It only stands to reason that where there’s sacrifice, there’s someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there’s service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master. Ayn Rand
Perhaps the forces that now menace freedom are too strong to be resisted for very long. It is still our duty to do whatever we can to resist them. Aldous Huxley
Matters are becoming especially nasty in US politics as we approach a seminal election.
The country is irreconcilably divided between hard-core liberals and conservatives. Fortunately, there are enough independents that neither hard-core can muster a majority without modifying, to various degrees, their views. At least that is the way that elections worked before this one.
President Obama sees within his reach his dream of transforming the country. Unfortunately for Obama, his failures are apparent to growing numbers of citizens, many of whom supported him the first time around and are now suffering “buyers remorse.”
He is so close to what he planned, yet it is slipping away and his desperation is showing. Apparently in an effort to prevent this from happening, he is willing to employ his community organizer skills on a national level. These Marxist-Leninist-Alinsky tools were not planned to be unveiled until after his re-election. Now that this occurrence is at risk, he appears to be willing to use them as tools for re-election. This strategy reflects either desperation or misjudgment.
What do I mean by Marxist-Leninist-Alinsky tools? Quite simply, they are practical tools designed to accomplish an objective without regard to the legality or morality of the means. Obama has committed all out to an “ends justifies the means” campaign. Here, for example, are instructions from Lenin on power:
Comrades! The insurrection of five kulak districts should be pitilessly suppressed. …
1. Hang (and make sure that the hanging takes place in full view of the people) no fewer than one hundred known landlords, rich men, bloodsuckers.
2. Publish their names.
3. Seize all their grain from them.
4. Designate hostages in accordance with yesterday’s telegram.
Do it in such a fashion that for hundreds of kilometres around the people might see, tremble, know, shout: “they are strangling, and will strangle to death, the bloodsucking kulaks”.

Despite all the media hoopla and propaganda regarding how well the recovery is progressing, there is little reason for optimism. Most of the claimed improvements do not hold up beyond the deliberately misleading headlines. This is especially true of claims pertaining to economic growth, employment or the European problems.
The US marches inexorably toward its fate with sovereign bankruptcy, continuing to spend and borrow as if a bottomless pit of funds will continue to be available forever. In a misguided effort to stimulate the economy, the current president has added about $4 Trillion of new debt to debt levels that were already dangerously high. Much of the new debt has been financed by the Federal Reserve via the creation of new money and credit.
The unprecedented use of the Fed (money printing) has been required in this debt expansion for two principle reasons:
- Foreigners and US citizens are unwilling to supply enough funds to cover our profligate government spending.
- Interest rates are being deliberately driven close to zero as a result of Fed purchases of US debt. This policy is an attempt to re-liquify the banking sector.
