Politics / When Government Shuts Down . . .
« on: Today at 06:42:18 am »

The lesson of the government shutdown is not that people want it to stay open, always and forever, but that the world doesn’t fall apart when Uncle Sam takes the day off. Let’s give him the next century or so, see how the people on their own can restore prosperity and liberty. With no taxes to pay, there’d be plenty left over to pay even exorbitant admission fees to the Washington Monument.

Trump’s Global Military Aggressiveness Comes Clearly Into View

But even beyond choosing policies that won’t get him what he wants, which is a U.S.-fashioned world, Trump is actually hastening the demise of the U.S. empire while making the world a much more dangerous place. Trump and any future president would do well, if they are seriously interested in peace and progress, to retrench the empire significantly while making Russia and China into allies.

“Chesty” Puller and the Southern Military Tradition

When we examine Chesty through the lens of his southern heritage, his life and actions begin to make a lot more sense. His combat skills were second to none and reminiscent of men like Francis Marion, Stonewall, and Nathan Bedford Forrest. His devotion to liberty are reminiscent to men like Washington and Lee. Also like a true southerner, Chesty believed in limited government and low taxation. Puller may not have been the best public speaker or man of letters. But he was and will always be a true son of the south. His own history deserves just as much examination as his military leadership.

Notice Puller's devotion was to liberty, not democracy.

Politics / Rep. Todd Clodfelter - The Confederate Flag

Rep. Todd Clodfelter: The Confederate flag isn't racist, and neither am I

The fact is that hundreds of thousands of Southerners took up arms, most of them never having owned a slave, and fought with the specific belief that they were following in the footsteps of our Founding Fathers. Others were resisting an invading army marching into their state, across their farmland and into their towns. Many were just ignorant, young men looking for adventure.

After the North prevailed, the survivors returned home to devastation: their crops burned, homes pillaged and destroyed, livestock slaughtered or scattered; entire cities laid to ruin. My ancestors among them.

Politics / "White Privilege" or "Yankee Privilege?"
« on: January 19, 2018, 07:06:08 am »

Since Appomattox the falsely accused “racist” South has been a prime target of big government, Yankee progressives. Today they use the talisman of “White Privilege” to attack all traditional American values, while reserving their greatest hatred for the defenders of the captive nation—the Confederate States of America. But in reality, what progressives or liberals call “White Privilege” is actually Yankee Privilege and therefore does not apply to the South.

Moderate leftists desire to use the bureaucratic state to slowly morph “conservative” society into their ideal neo-Marxist socialist state. The radical leftist “intellectuals” are more aggressive. They worship a mythical utopian Marxist socialist society in which a new neo-Marxist social contract will be established to replace the Constitution. Neo-Marxists claim the Constitution is flawed and no longer relevant because it was established by a bunch of dead white men, most of whom were slaveholders. In their view this flawed Constitution must be replaced with their new social contract that will guarantee social and economic equality of outcome. This view of so-called “white privilege” has strong support among guilt-ridden upper income whites in the Northeast, Silicon Valley, Hollywood and the area in and around the Yankee Empire’s imperial capitol of Washington, D.C.—places where the per capita income greatly exceeds the national average. But where is the privilege associated with being a white Southerner?

It's clear that Republicans and modern Democrats have so much in common.  It's not hard to see the likeness.

Constitutional Ignorance -- Perhaps Contempt

My question is: Is it ignorance of or contempt for our Constitution that fuels the movement to abolish the Electoral College?
