The very first thing to remember, to know, to understand and never allow to escape your memory when dealing with or even discussing Marxists, is that they only have one moral or ethic. The End Justifies the Means.
“The end is what you want, the means is how you get it. Whenever we think about social change, the question of means and ends arises. The man of action views the issue of means and ends in pragmatic and strategic terms. He has no other problem; he thinks only of his actual resources and the possibilities of various choices of action. He asks of ends only whether they are achievable and worth the cost; of means, only whether they will work. … The real arena is corrupt and bloody.” p.24
“The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search themselves as to their real political position. In fact, they are passive — but real — allies of the Haves…. The most unethical of all means is the non-use of any means… The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be….” pp.25-26
“The third rule of ethics of means and ends is that in war the end justifies almost any means….” p.29
“The seventh rule… is that generally success or failure is a mighty determinant of ethics….” p.34
“The tenth rule… is you do what you can with what you have and clothe it with moral garments…. It involves sifting the multiple factors which combine in creating the circumstances at any given time… Who, and how many will support the action?… If weapons are needed, then are appropriate d weapons available? Availability of means determines whether you will be underground or above ground; whether you will move quickly or slowly…” p.36
What this means is that the favorite tactic of every Marxist who has ever lived, is lying. Why? Because you can get normal, honest decent people to do things that they normally would not do by lying to them. You can get people whose moral and ethical foundations are weak to commit the most vile atrocities by lying to them. The more sincere and believable your lie, the further honest people will follow it.
When a simple, sincere, believable lie isn’t enough, use one that scares people. Global Warming is caused by humans…. Ya, that’s a perfect example of a scare tactic lie. Another big fat scare tactic lie being spoon fed to the American people right this second is, “If we don’t raise the debt ceiling the US will default on it’s loans”.
It’s bad enough that the Marxist pretending to be Democrats are pushing this big fat scare tactic lie, but now even a number of so called conservative pundits and Bloggers are pushing it as well. No doubt if Andrew Breitbart were alive to see what Andrew Taylor wrote over at “The Big Story” he would be furious.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats controlling the Senate are planning to try to pass a stand-alone measure to increase the government’s borrowing cap, challenging Republicans to a filibuster showdown that could unnerve financial markets as the deadline to a first-ever default on U.S. obligations draws closer.
Not only is this a big fat scare tactic lie, it’s complete and utter bullshit that every American Citizen past the 6th grade should know is nothing but a damned big fat scare tactic lie.
4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
It really is that simple, the United States Constitution forbids the United States Congress or the President from failing to pay it’s public debt. What this means is, that the United States uncatogorically cannot default on it’s public debt. If the House of Representatives refuse to raise the debt ceiling, the US will not default, it will have to prioritize it’s spending, cutting it’s discretionary spending as much as is required to make it’s mandatory discretionary spending, starting first with paying it’s public debt and then it’s other non-discretionary spending.
It’s not surprising that a Marxist pretending to be a Conservative Blogger like Hot Airs Ed Morrissey is pushing this big fat scare tactic lie, but that anyone writing for one of Andrew Breitbarts legacy sites would do so is heart breaking.
No, there will be no federal default, anyone claiming otherwise is either an idiot, a useless Marxist imbecile or just plain a big fat lair.
