The Devil stalks the SCOTUS.

The Devil’s greatest trick was convincing the world he didn’t exist. If there is no Devil, then their is nothing to fear from God, or better yet, their is no God. The single greatest appeal to their being no Devil or God, is that there are no eternal consequences to ones actions here on earth. Every individual is free to act in any such manner as fit’s their desire.

If you choose to act in a moral and ethical manner, then you are free to do so, providing you can demonstrate a logical, rational basis for those moral and ethical patterns of behavior. If you choose to not accept any conventional moral or ethical standards, well, you are also free to do that. The only constraints on any individuals behavior are those enforced by the “Monopoly on Violence” of the government under which they are a citizen.

Having no ultimate retribution awaiting the individual predicated upon their personally culpable actions and patterns of behavior frees the individual to behave in any manner that they want. In effect giving license to every human being to place their own personal desires and interests ahead of everyone else around them. In other-words, legitimizing sociopathic or psychopathic behavior to the extent that it does not violate the laws of the nation the individual lives in.

For even longer than the human race has had a written language, it has had codified religious laws dictating which actions and patterns of behavior were acceptable and which would hold eternal consequences. Whether the theory is true or not that the written language came into existence for the express purpose of codification of religious laws and theology is debatable. What is not debatable is that among the oldest written documents in existence are “The Code of Hammurabi” which begins with the preface, “Anu and Bel called by name me, Hammurabi, the exalted prince, who feared Marduk, the chief god of Babylon , to bring about the rule in the land.”.

What can clearly be seen here is that Hammurabi invokes the Gods of Babylon as the source of authority for the legal codes that he then proceeds to lay out. Herein lays one of the most significant problems or issues in the history of the Human race. The written codification of laws dictating what constitutes socially acceptable behavior makes relative morality nearly impossible unless those codified laws can be altered easily.

If a Deity, such as the Judeo-Christian God or the Babylonian God Marduk is invoked as the foundation, or authority for those laws, then it becomes incredibly difficult for those laws to be arbitrarily changed to suit the current whims and desires of those living at the time.

Every civilization in human history has had it’s own codified legal system. Those codified legal systems have been written down in some fashion. From the original Mesopotamian writing system (believed to be the world’s oldest) circa 3600 BC and the Indus script found in early Harappa after 3500 BC (currently un deciphered) one thing is abundantly clear, once written down and codified laws of behavior become more difficult to modify at a whim. What constitutes acceptable moral and ethical behavior as codified by every civilizations written legal code, becomes static and highly stable.

The last 100 years in America has seen an erosion of the stability of moral and ethical behavior in the United States of America. Since Everson v. Board of Education (1947), there has been a concerted effort to separate any connection to the Judeo-Christian religious theology of America’s Founding Fathers and the American Legal system. Such proponents nearly always cite Reynolds v. United States (1879) as the foundation of their efforts (the Court wrote that Jefferson’s comments “may be accepted almost as an authoritative declaration of the scope and effect of the [First] Amendment.”).

This divorce of any Deity from the legal code of the United States removes the single most powerful obstacle to Moral Relativity “Descriptive moral relativism holds only that some people do in fact disagree about what is moral; meta-ethical moral relativism holds that in such disagreements, nobody is objectively right or wrong; and normative moral relativism holds that because nobody is right or wrong, we ought to tolerate the behavior of others even when we disagree about the morality of it.”

Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973) marks perhaps the beginning of America’s decent on a Slippery Slope (Modern usage includes a logically valid form, in which a minor action causes a significant impact through a long chain of logical relationships. Note that establishing this chain of logical implication (or quantifying the relevant probabilities) makes this form logically valid. The Slippery Slope argument remains a fallacy if such a chain is not established.) where traditional moral and ethical values began being replaced by moral relativism.

When the SCOTUS created out of whole cloth the supposed constitutional right of a mother to murder her own unborn child, traditional American Judeo-Christian morals and ethic’s began to find themselves systematically being outlawed and replaced with normative moral relativism based laws. March 25th 2013 the SCOTUS once again found itself deliberating another of those once absolute Judeo-Christian morality based laws.

The Devil’s greatest trick was convincing the world he didn’t exist. He followed that up with convincing people that morals and ethics should be based on normative moral relativism rather than on the absolute dictates of any religious Deity. SCOTUS will find itself in a strange place when it takes up California’s Proposition 8, on one hand it will find itself being ask to rule in favor of normative moral relativism, which is to say, that the opponents of California’s Proposition 8 are arguing that the ancient prohibitions against homosexual conduct being based upon Judeo-Christian are banned or otherwise restricted by Thomas Jefferson’s “Separation of Church and State”.

At the exact same time, they will be forced to decide, once again based upon the concept of normative moral relativism whether or not the majority of any state in the Union can enact legal statutes baring or restricting certain forms of behavior that a minority in that state wish to engage in.

So what is going to be decided by the SCOTUS is can the citizens of any State in the United States pass legislation dictating what the majority of that state decides is morally or ethically acceptable behavior, can the majority of any State Amend their State Constitution according to their own perception of normative moral relativism or whether an aggressive minority can impose upon the several states their moral and ethical values against the will of the majority.

That California Superior Court Justice Vaughn Walker ruled on a case that he indisputably should have recused himself from for personal conflicts of interest reasons because he himself stood to benefit from that decision, will probably not even enter into the deliberative process of the 9 justices on the SCOTUS. Justice Walker should be removed from the bench for his actions or at the very barest of minimums severely rebuked by the Justices of the SCOTUS.

Personally I have grown extremely cynical and distrusting of the ability of the SCOTUS to deliberate objectively with a clear and unquestionably firm grasp on the United States Constitution as a foundation for their ultimate decisions. What has become painfully obvious is that SCOTUS decisions have increasingly been politically motivated rather than based upon the intentions of the Framers of the United States Constitution. It would not surprise me in the slightest if the SCOTUS upheld Justices Walker’s ruling, obliterating the rights of the citizens of each state to amend their own constitutions according to the morality and ethical values of the majority of it’s citizens.

The Devil’s greatest trick was convincing the world he didn’t exist. Judges 17:6 In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes. Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Yes, the Devil is stalking the Supreme Court of The United States of America.

Isaiah 14
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

In my opinion The SCOTUS has become like Lucifer as quoted above from Isaiah 14, having but themselves in the place of God, dictating what constitutes acceptable moral and ethical behavior. As a consequence I place little faith in the SCOTUS any more.

Edit: I would like to include the following comment made to me over at Hot Air.

The Devil stalks the SCOTUS.

One small quibble, SWalker.

Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973) marks perhaps the beginning of America’s decent on a Slippery Slope

No, Engle v. Vitale in ’62 was the beginning. It forbade the recitation of prayer in the public school system.

Why was that so important? Because Dewey and his disciples understood that what enters the minds of the young in their earliest stages of cognitive development sets the framework for all subsequent intellectual context. Removing the introduction of the idea of the Transcendent from the intellectual and subconscious development of young Americans’ minds was a master stroke which set the stage for the introduction of other ideas which would otherwise register as morally and intellectually inconsistent with their understanding of reality, and therefore would be a much more difficult sell.

God I hate Illinois Nazi’s California Enviro-Nazi’s…

Well, the California Enviro-Nazi’s are at it again. Today’s agenda… Blocking the construction of a Power Plant adjacent to Mission Trails Regional Park. San Diego, California imports the majority of it’s electricity from Arizona. The San Onofre is currently operating at 70% capacity and may not be allowed to return to full capacity. These damned fools are already trying to close three of San Diego County’s largest power plants, the Encina Power Station in Carlsbad, the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station north of Oceanside and the South Bay Power Plant in Chula Vista.

These Enviro-Nazi’s are the most disgusting of hypocrites, they want all the benefits of living in a high tech society, but none of the energy requirements. It is my personal feeling that anyone who protests the construction of any power generating station should be required by law to be disconnected 100 percent from the power grid, no electricity, no natural gas, no gasoline, no diesel. In other words, forced to live without the power that they are attempting to deprive everyone else of. Are you a “NIMBY” (Not In My Back Yard) ok, fine, no power of any kind for you. If these are your convictions, then prove it, live by those convictions.

To call these assholes raging imbecilic morons would genuinely be an insult to raging imbecilic morons. Former Bob Marley guitarist Pete Tosh once wrote a brutally honest statement in one of his songs, “Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die.” Ok, everybody (Atheist excluded perhaps) wants to go to heaven, but nobody goes there alive. Ya got to die to get there. Well, living in a first world high tech society has it’s parallels, everyone wants to enjoy the benefits of a high technological society. You want your cell phone? You want your computer? How about your stove to cook on, your refrigerator to keep your food safe to eat? You want lights at night? You want heat in the winter? Air Conditioning in the summer? You want to own an automobile, you want a damned job? Hell, let’s be brutally honest, you want food to eat? None of these things are possible without electricity. Wake the hell up and face reality, we do not live in an agrarian society, the population of the United States alone is to great for us to ever return to being an agrarian society. Not without between half and 2/3rds of the American population having to DIE first.

Ok you brain dead worthless imbeciles, you want to return to being a agrarian society, let’s make a list of who has to die for that to happen, but get this 100 percent fixed in your heads, you want this, your name is first on that list. First on the list to be kicked off the power grid, first on the list to loose all of the benefits of technology. First on the list to loose your toys, your tools, your creature comforts, your homes, your cars your cell phones, your computers, your cars, your homes, your damned jobs and even your food. No medical care, no ambulances, no fireman, no nothing that you cannot do yourself with simple hand made tools. Grow your own food, no fertilizers, defend yourselves, no police and no firearms. Oh… and suck it, no land for you either. Try growing your food without land.

Sorry you worthless fucks, electricity is a necessary evil of a technological society. It is a necessary evil of living on planet earth with a population of 7 billion people. Don’t like it, tough shit, be the first to prove the depths of your convictions, make that list of who has to die to bring your utopia about, but remember, the very first person on that list is… YOU.

The Truth about Karl Rove

I do not like Karl Rove, let me be perfectly clear about that. The man is, like Dr. Charles Krauthammer, a pragmatic moderate, literally a genuine centrist. More than that though Karl Rove is a ruthless opportunist, a man who has embraced the notion that the end justifies the means. Rove is a strategist, he plays a hardcore numbers game in all of his strategies.

That game is not predicated on getting any particular candidate elected, but on the sheer numbers of candidates who self identify as Republicans. Every move Rove makes politically is calculated by the numbers. Which so called self identified Republican candidate has the greatest mathematical probability of successfully getting elected. To that end Karl Rove will do anything that he believes will enhance his candidates odds of a successful outcome

This is where the problems arise.

:At this point please allow me to make this disclosure. I am a Conservative Constitutionalist with libertarian leanings. What I most assuredly am not is a blind partisan, nor a bandwagon conservative. My political ideologies derive from my readings of a) The United States Constitution, b) the writings of the Founding Fathers (Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Franklin, Adams, Rush) c) the Federalist Papers d) the Anti-Federalist Papers:

As I said this is where the problem arises. Let us make no mistakes here, Karl Rove is not a stupid or dumb man, quiet the contrary, he is an extremely intelligent man. He is also a profoundly conflicted individual. On the emotional side he knows that something truly terrible is happening in America right now, and he is fighting with all he has to correct that. The problem is, that on the intellectual side he is in profoundly deep denial with regards to what exactly is wrong.

To quote perhaps the greatest human military strategist to have ever lived, the Chinese General Sun Tzu, “The enemy you cannot identify, is the enemy you cannot defeat”. This more than anything is what makes Karl Rove and the Republican leadership disastrous for America. They have some kind of mental block that prevents them from identifying the greatest threat to America. They live in complete and total denial with regards to whom the enemy is.

If we were to draw a line scale number it from 0 to 10 based upon the traditional American political ideologies, mark the first line on that scale 0 and call it traditional American Liberal ideological values, and on the line at the other end, 10, mark as traditional American Conservative values the line in the middle number 5, would be the genuinely moderate centrists like Rove and Krauthammer. This is where the genuine pragmatic moderate centrists live. It is where the vast majority of sway-able American voters once lived.

The problem is, that the Democrat party leadership no longer live at 0, they, the Fifth Column Treasonous Media, Academia, and the Judicial System Justices now live at -5. They are not traditional American Liberals, they are straight up full on Marxists. This is what Karl Rove, Dr. Charles Krauthammer, and the vast majority of the Republican Party Leadership are in complete and total denial about.

Like I said above, Karl Rove is a brilliant political strategist, but his tactical strategies are predicated upon the Democrats being Traditional America Liberals. Upon their inhabiting number 5 on the traditional American political ideological scale. However, because they, and the most importantly, the Fifth Column Treasonous Media actually live at -5 on the scale the Overton Window has been deceptively cast as having been dragged 5 full points to the left.

This is why the Republican Party Leadership and individuals like Dr. Charles Krauthammer and Karl Rove consistently attack the TEA Party candidates. With the illusion of the Overton Window having shifted 5 full points to the left the inescapable consequence is that those who would by the traditional American Political ideological scale have fallen between 5 and 10 on the scale are now seen as being far right extremists.

All of Karl Roves political calculations regarding the electability of those candidates he chooses to back are based upon this fallacy. Were this the end of it, I probably would not care about Roves political inclinations. However, since Karl Rove has chosen to do what a great number of those on the conservative side of the isle have been screaming that conservative need to do, something that I completely and totally disagree with, well I have a problem. What is this something? It is to adopt the Marxist principal that the end justifies the means.

Karl Rove has done this and those conservatives who hold a visceral hatred of Rove are actually hating him for dong exactly what they insist that conservatives should be doing. Those conservatives hate Rove because he is 100 percent willing to use the politics of Personal Destruction against any “Republican” TEA Party or Conservative candidate who falls to far on the right of the scale. Whom, for the average swing voter, fall outside of the Overton Window of electability.

This is why Rove keeps trashing the TEA Party and Conservative candidates, because refusing to believe that the Democrats and the Fifth Column Treasonous Media are full blown Marxists and that they have created the illusion of the Overton Windows leftward shift, he mistakenly believes that the TEA Party and Conservative candidates are mathematically unelectable. Like I said above, with Karl Rove, everything is about the mathematical probability of success.

My personal dislike of him is that he has adopted the Marxist strategic principal that the end justifies the means. It is my personal conviction that no individual can hold fire to their chest without getting badly burned. You cannot adopt the ideological principal that the end justifies the means and continue to hold those so elegantly articulated by America’s Founding Fathers. The concepts of Liberty, Freedom and Rule of the People by the People and for the People are utterly and completely antithetical to those of the end justifying the means.

Unless and until Karl Rove, Dr Charles Krauthammer and the rest of the GOP Leadership come to the Epiphany that opens their eyes to what is really happening in America they are doomed to suffer the fate predicted by Sun Tzu, they will be defeated again and again and again until they are utterly destroyed, because unable to identify who their enemy is, they will never mount an effective counter strategy against their enemy. They will continue to fight amongst themselves, inflicting utterly needless wounds to those who should be their allies in round after round of misguided recriminations. Turning friends into enemies, committing fratricide instead of attacking their real enemies.

This is the brutal unvarnished and nonpartisan truth about Karl Rove.

The Path Forward.

If we, who are Conservatives, are to undo the damage that the Marxists have done to our once great Republic, we must dismantle the various Teacher’s unions and find a way to create incentive’s that will lead Conservatives into education. The American Educational system has become nothing less than a Marxist indoctrination system.

History is not taught objectively nor honestly, in large part because to do so would make it impossible to indoctrinate the vast majority into Marxism or Socialism. The unvarnished truth is that in every single instance where any nation on earth attempted to implement a Marxist/Socialist/Communist society it has always ended in unmitigated disaster.

Not only have the Marxist based systems resulted in the most horrendous tyrannical governments, those governments have racked up a death toll in the hundreds of millions of innocent people eliminated to protect those tyrannical governments or to advance the agenda’s of those governments.

The only way to continue to indoctrinate people into a system that fails so catastrophically is to lie to them, to make promises that cannot be achieved. The only way to get them to believe those lies, is to demonize the only economic or political system that history has proven to work.

The favorite lie that is used to promote Marxist based political and economic ideologies is that Marxism will work, if only the right people were to implement it. Implicant in that lie, is the notion that those being fed the lie are the ones who can make it work this time.

Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels created Marxism at a time when “The Enlightenment” was at it’s peak. The Enlightenment was also called, “The Age of Reason” a time when individuals coming out of the “Dark Ages” believed that there was no problem that human logical reasoning could not solve. It was, to put it bluntly a time of erroneous assumptions of simplicity.

We have since that time learned of a mathematical theory which basically destroyed the most basic premises of the “Age of Reason”, that mathematical theory is known as “Chaos Theory”. What Chaos Theory has taught us, is that their are systems which are to large and complicated to be accurately modeled.

This has very real world implications with respect to Marxism and it’s bastard children Socialism and Communism. This political and economic systems utterly rely on something known as a “Central Committee Command and Control”. The predicated assumption in a “Central Committee Command and Control Economy” is that all of the variables in any economic system can be calculated and modeled and thus controlled.

Reality however has proven that this a fallacy, as Chaos Theory dictates, there are simply to many variables within any functional economic system for any model to accurately predict, and without incredibly accurate predictions, no economy can be controlled.

Marxism likewise as a political system, aside from it’s economic considerations, falls for the same false assumptions, that human behavior can be so accurately be predicted that it can be completely controlled. Human behavior, like any other Chaotic system simply has to many random variables to be modeled with the precision required by the Marxist based ideological system.

Marxism also has another 100 percent fatal flaw inherent within it. That fatal flaw is that the Marxist ideology absolutely requires a radical modification of human behavior. What is amazing about that required modification is, that also inherent within the Marxists system is Atheism, and it’s accompanying dedication to the evolutionary theory, which dictates that certain human behavioral characteristics evolved over hundreds of thousands of years.

Those practicing Marxism believe that within a couple of generations at most those behavioral characteristics that evolved over hundreds of thousands of years can be changed. They believe that perhaps the oldest and most primal of all human behavioral characteristics, the individuals own personal survival instinct can be supplanted and rewritten t the survival of the social order rather than the individual.

At the heart of the individuals survival instinct is what I have called, The Awful Truth, here is what I wrote in that article.

Planet Earth is the habitat for three distinct life forms.

Chemosynthesic, is the biological conversion of one or more carbon molecules (usually carbon dioxide or methane) and nutrients into organic

Photosynthesic, is the process of converting light energy to chemical energy and storing it in the bonds of sugar.

Animals, which can only survive by consuming the flesh of other once living creatures.

You and I are technically listed under the heading of Animals; in order for us to survive and propagate, we must consume things that were once living creatures. We have no other option for survival.

For every day we are alive some other living creature must DIE, no if’s and’s or but’s about it. Whether it is a plant or another animal without their flesh or their reproductive systems, we die…

Scientific evidence now suggests that our intelligence is directly linked to a combination diet of both plant and animal flesh, heavy on the animal flesh. The evidence also clearly indicated that a strict vegetarian diet results in shrinkage of the brain. Intelligence is directly linked to brain size.

We go to the grocery store and purchase food stuffs , we don’t kill our own food anymore (well most of us anyways). We have become removed from the death cycle and begun a new death cycle in the process.

We cannot sustain our current level of intelligence on a purely vegetarian diet. And a growing segment of our population cannot endure the grief of eating the flesh of animals.

These members of our society hide their revulsion of one kind of act mandatory for survival behind a hypocrisy of shades. Vegetables have no self-awareness they assert and are thus acceptable for consumption; it eases their sense of guilt at the cost of their survival.

Yet those plants are no less alive than any animal. The hypocrisy is that since plants are not ambulatory they some how are less deserving of their lives. This is hypocrisy of the rankest and most foul kind. It denies the indisputable reality that for them and you and me, something must die every day for us to remain alive and for us to retain our intelligence a significant porting of those things that must die are ambulatory animals.

This is the awful truth behind our civilization. We are killers and we must kill to survive and remain intelligent.

The significance here is that, this is a basic biological imperative, it cannot be changed. Furthermore, it is the foundation of the survival instinct. Having embraced atheism and evolution Marxist proceed to conclude that the most basic fundamental physiological aspect of human life can be changed. Rather than accepting the reality of what evolution has created, they believe that they can “Play God” and create a human being in their own desired image.

Marxism, in essence is attempting to defy the very evolutionary process that the Marxist attempt to use to influence and control the people it enslaves. It seeks both to halt the evolutionary process, while rewriting it at the same time. For Marxism to work, all human development must become static.

None of this is even remotely possible, which is why Conservatives must break the Marxist’s hold on the educational system. To do that, we must break the hold of the teachers unions over the educational system. Marxism is a suicidal political ideological system.

For decades conservatives have seceded the educational system to the Marxist’s, perhaps the greatest reason has been, that being a teacher really never has been the most profitable occupation. Conservatives have been too busy earning livings that provide for their families and allow them to ensure that each generation has a better future than their parents.

Those of us who are conservatives have made the mistake for the last 60 or 70 years of trusting others to attend to certain obligations while we earned our livings. We work long hard hours that leave us exhausted at the end of the day. We have come to expect that our off hours are ours to do with exclusively as we desire.

It is not that we have become lazy, we have become detached. While we were resting and recovering from what it takes to earn a decent or even good living, those who we foolishly trusted to attending to details like educating our children or running our communities or representing us in our government have been slowly, quietly and consistently betraying that trust.

Our Republic will fall, it will collapse if we do not find the strength and the motivation to reengage in not just the political system, but in the very system that educates our children. If our children continue to be indoctrinated into Marxism in the public educational system, then no amount of political involvement will halt or reverse the Marxist assimilation of our Government, we will become a failed Marxist State.

Those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end

There is an evil stalking the land, “It can’t be bargained with, it can’t feel pain or mercy, and it will stop at absolutely nothing until you are dead!” … No, it’s not the Terminator played by “Arnold Schwarzenegger” in the movies of the same name.

It is a fascist totalitarian mentality, it is as anti-American as it is possible to get, yet, it has become so profoundly entangled in our culture and society that half of our country see absolutely no problem with it. In fact they embrace it as though it were the greatest ideological concept to have even been created.

It exists as a form of social zombie, an undead idea so repugnant that even it’s greatest practitioners recoil in anger and disgust when it is turn upon them, yet never the less, when it is them doing the applying, it’s somehow good.

What is this dreaded and vile mentality, this ideological concept of undeadness you ask… (ok, go ahead and ask it…. ) It is “Do gooder syndrome” it is the mentality espoused by those who are going to save the world, society, and every man woman and child on the planet by telling each and everyone of us what we are and are not allowed to do.

They are legion, they are faceless and nameless (Ok, NY Cities Mayor Bloomingidiot isn’t nameless, he’s just brainless, moral-less and ethic-less) and they are absolutely every stinking where. You name it and they have staked out a position on it. From San Fransisco’s ban on regular flow flushing toilets to New York Cities ban on 32oz soda’s.

Here is today’s example of that viral mental disorder.

Stubbing Out Cigarettes for Good
Published: March 3, 2013


This provides an opportunity for states, counties and cities to adopt the Smokefree Generation, a proposal by A. J. Berrick, a mathematics professor in Singapore.

The idea is simple: no one born in or after 2000 can ever be sold cigarettes. Under such legislation, which jurisdictions like the Australian state of Tasmania are considering, the vast majority of this cohort — the oldest are now 13 — would never begin smoking. It’s hard to imagine too many parents objecting, and it would be easy for retailers to enforce. In the United States, it would provide a useful focus for state and local public health officials to do something game-changing, rather than sitting on the sidelines waiting for Washington to act.

Critics will say that, even if a state or city passed such a law, would-be smokers could go to an adjoining one to buy cigarettes. But evidence suggests that border-crossing and smuggling would be minimal. States that have sharply raised their cigarette taxes, after all, have not only increased tax revenue but also reduced rates of smoking prevalence, even among nicotine addicts. Young people, who are generally not addicted (yet) and who tend not to have peers who smoke, are even less likely to chase cigarettes across state or county lines. …

(Ed: emphasis mine)

Richard A. Daynard no doubt thinks (It of course requires a willing suspension of disbelief to accept that he is actually capable of thinking) that what he writes is an objective fair-minded and ubiquitous opinion. Daynard is so comfortable with this mentality that it never even occurs to him that what he is proposing could even remotely be considered offensive to anyone. After all, who wants to die a slow lingering death, right?

The writer famous for the “Narnia Series”, CS Lewis, committed to words in so much more elegant a manner than I am every likely to a summation of this mentality, this philosophical ideology, this intellectual Ebola virus.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would 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

This could not have been more perfectly epitomized than when Nancy Pelosi stood in front of the American People with that giant gavel in her hand, and proclaimed victoriously regarding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) (Yea, that’s Obamacare) “You have to pass the Bill to find out what’s in it”.

That phrase alone, in a saner time, would have been all that was required to win Pelosi a date with a hangman’s noose, or at the bare minimum a good tar and feathering just before she was run out of town on a literal rail.

One of the very first flags ever used to represent the United States of America was the “Gadsden flag” it was a yellow field with a coiled rattlesnake on it with the words “Don’t Tread on me” appearing under the coiled rattlesnake. It meant then, pretty much the same thing it means today. “Leave me the hell alone, you’re not the boss of me”.

Benjamin Franklin, was speaking about this mental viral infection as much if not more so when he said “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety” than he was abut any actual government. Like so many of America’s Founding Father’s, the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin has over the decades revealed itself to be profound and manifold.

Totalitarianism and tyranny have existed for as long as the human race has existed, yet never before perhaps have the tyrants been the fellow citizens of those whom the tyrants would oppress. Starting in the late 1800’s, right after America’s Civil War (around 1879-84), America’s most prestigious and respected Universities and Colleges began casting around for educators who could heal the horrific wounds of the Civil War.

Educators who would hold unique philosophical and ideological views, the age of reason was upon mankind, there were no problems that enlightened men could not solve. Thus the American educational institutes did sow the seeds of their own destruction. For what they introduced into the American educational institutes in the guise of enlightened reason, was none other than Marxism.

Once you have distilled Marxism down to it’s purest spirit, that spirit is this. The end justifies the means. For those of you who still don’t get it, that means that the only thing that counts, is winning, and how you win is of no importance or consequence, only that you do win.

Do gooder syndrome is the next logical step, now that you have won, what are you going to do. “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”.

Smoking is bad for you, so we will not permit you to smoke, drinking (32oz soda’s) is not god for you, so we will not permit you to drink. Riding a motorcycle without a helmet is dangerous, so we will not permit you to ride a motorcycle without a helmet, riding in a car without a seat-belt is dangerous, so we will not permit you to ride in a car without a seat-belt.

The list gets longer and longer and more and more intrusive every day many times it is even buttressed with the argument “It’s for the Children”. An argument that any sane rational person knows is a lie, if anything ever done in America were done “For the Children” rather than as a method of coercion then abortion would have not only never been legalized in America, but any doctor or other individual who performed one would be charged with first degree murder, convicted and publicly hung.

50 million dead children murdered by doctors at the bequest of their own mothers and backed up by the full weight of the United States Governments monopoly on violence makes as incontrovertible and indisputable a statement as can even remotely be imagine being made regarding just how precious children are to those who have succumbed to the false intellectual allure of Marxism. Nothing that these totalitarian do gooder’s do is “For the Children”, it isn’t even for “Our own good”. It is about control and power.

Once upon a time in America, patriotic citizens hoisted a Gadsden Flag and said, “Leave me the hell alone, you’re not the boss of me”, and they backed that statement up from the barrel of a gun. When considered in light of “those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience” it makes all the sense in the world that those same people so desperately want and need to disarm the American people.
