I should love Barack Obama. The sad fact is, I never did better than the few years I lived under Socialism. It was back in the 80s in the Netherlands, before they started to reform their very generous system. I moved there just out of school. They gave away money to everyone, even non-citizens and non-residents like me.
Socialism is great for composers, lazy bums and posers. But after a while the money runs out. And what you got for spending all the money, in my field, was mostly lousy or mediocre music, and individuals who justify their existence as “artists” since they are supported by the government (who are supported by Phillips, Heineken, Shell Oil, and the other businesses that sell things that people really need…like beer and fuel.)
Even now some free money would be really great. You probably think all Jews know how to make money, but it’s not true. Some are not really made for this world and are as lazy and stupid as any Goyim. Some would of done better working in service to the King, or the State.
It’s nothing to be proud of, that’s why I advocate for conservativism. I seek redemption for my former left-wing views through justice for those not like me: the solid citizens and taxpayers; the unborn; the warriors.
A real truth seeker could not deny the Left’s history of economic and human rights failures. The trail of blood and tears, and it’s anti-human nature. But Socialists can’t stop people who work hard and believe in God. Americans who know how to fight and win, will prevail. Even bums enjoy their freedom and can appreciate how rare it is in the history of man. They can live off the scraps since the table is filled with great delights.
For purposes of this blog, I have played up my “Leftist” past.
It only lasted about three years. As I was first a Zappist, I could never commit to anything as bogus as Socialism.
Human Rights brought me in (not the chicks, I was lucky enough as a Teaching Assistant). One thing that pushed me away from the Left was Political Correctness. It was so boring.
If you are already on the Left, why did we have to keep hearing the same shit, over and over!?
It was in 1980-1983, when I was a graduate student at Columbia University in New York. It was there that I worked as a Campus Community Organizer.
The political action group I was in, worked with many different groups, but never directly with the hard Left, like the Workers World Party or The Revolutionary Communist Party. I thought these people were nuts, or Agent Provocateurs.
I’ve always been a radio freak and that medium has always been very influential. I was tuned in to WBAI, a listener (and the Left) supported station. They had some compelling hosts and the subject matter seemed really important.
After a couple of years, the repetitiveness and almost total lack of broadcasting standards, together with the preponderance of Reggae Music, drove me away.
After I finished my studies and had a real impact with my political action, all I did was write songs and rhymes to express my lefty views. Being on the Left after the Islamic Revolution in Iran helped temper a full embrace of its anti-American nature.
The moment had passed for both me and the radio station. Reagan was President and I am only sorry now that I could not then appreciate his greatness.
I used to read Marx, the Frankfurt School, The Daily Worker, The Guardian, had subscriptions to The Nation, Mother Jones and Covert Action, read the New York Times cover to cover, and deserve a medal for reading all of Noam Chomsky’s torturous political books…but I knew America would always be a capitalist country. We were still Anti-Communist back in the 80s.
[Yes, I was at Columbia at the same time as the President. One day he will pay me back for that bag of weed we split!]
So on top of income tax we add this to the Global Warming tax, the cigarette tax… and folks, I gotta tell ya:
I lived in Europe for more than ten years. From the time I first moved there, the country I lived in, was starting to move AWAY from Socialism. That was twenty years ago. I must mention it, because you don’t hear that.
Socialism is unsustainable. You get the prosperous international companies paying the taxes to support peoples beer and cigarette money, and a whole lot more. (Welfare checks cover the VAT and other consumption taxes).
Since there are more bums than successful corporate executives and their employees, eventually the weight of sustaining a bloated bureaucracy and welfare state, busts the system. The Europeans are too smart to let that happen, so years ago they started becoming more like America.
Even in France they elected Sakozy. Obama probably knows this, but the media don’t seem to know or care. Therefore the Democrat voters don’t know or care.
Obamanomics is a jihad against Capitalism. It’s a mass suicide attack.
Maybe it will be the opposite of wine and cheese, and six week vacations. More like 1984…
But probably we we will end up completely “multi-cultural.” We will just be another Third World country.
