Formerly the Thinking Catholic Strategic Center

I am a proud and rigid Catholitalist, I practice the Politics Of Division, and I hope the Socialists, the Moslems and the Immoral don't like it. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, read Catholitalism: The Natural Symbiosis of Catholicism and Capitalism.)
To oppose Capitalism is to oppose the natural law rights to equality, life, liberty and property that bring Capitalism into being. To oppose natural law is to oppose Catholicism, and the Divine Author of nature.
Very simple; nothing to it. There is no reason to make it any more complicated than that.
The worldly opponents of Capitalism are also the worldly opponents of Catholicism, and they are Socialism, Islam and Immorality.
In America, the chief political proponents of or gatherers-with Socialism, Islam and Immorality are the Marxocrat Party, and much of USCCB, the Republicrat Party and the Libertarian Party, and most of the so-called "Independents". And that is America's political problem.
But, proponents of or gatherers-with Socialism, Islam and Immorality also dominate academia, education, publishing, journalism, entertainment, Protestantism, the courts, and government, at all levels. And that is America's cultural problem.
We see these evils at best tolerated and at worst promoted and even practiced by priests, bishops and cardinals in the most authoritative positions in the Roman Catholic ruling hierarchy today. And that is America's (and Catholicism's) theological and doctrinal problem.
We see elements of the evil thinking of Marxocratism everywhere we look today, especially in government, the courts and even more especially in the Church. It is organized evil. Much of it is Sorosian and Alinskyian. Marxism is playing an underground game in America and getting away with it, since its super-successful cultural popular demonization of McCarthyism. Almost nobody in America sees Communism or Socialism as a threat to America or to Christianity any more. It's just seen as another relatively harmless political opinion.
Kind of like keeping a Gaboon Viper as a family pet.
But if being a Catholic and being an American mean anything at all, it means commitment and determination to remain a Catholic and remain an American. No one who tolerates, let alone embraces things that oppose his Catholicism and his American citizenship ever remains a Catholic or an American.
The Spiritual Works of Mercy require Catholics to instruct the ignorant and admonish the sinner; not to learn from the ignorant and gather with the sinner. Good citizenship demands teaching the Declaration, the Constitution and the history to the young and the foreign, not favorably considering anti-American approaches to American politics.
Capitalism, as explained in Catholitalism, is natural; it arises naturally, when and where men enjoy the citizenship rights that flow from America's original Four Inalienables: the protected rights to Equality, Life, Liberty and Property. This is the natural law; this is the way the Divine Author of nature intended it to be, and that is the way that it naturally is. Anything that interferes with that natural aspect of human culture harms the human culture both economically and spiritually, because it is an interference with and a perversion of nature.
Prior to the Declaring and Constituting of the USA, and continuing to this day, all governments other than that of the USA were governments of men, meaning that men were the rulers. In the worst cases, governing men were not only above the law or impervious to it, and some men not only dictated the law, but some men actually were the law.
The Constituting of America changed all that for the USA; we became the world's first and only nation of laws, and not of men. America's only ruler is a piece of paper - the Constitution. American governments come and they go, but the Constitution remains.
This opposes all other forms of government by men, including:
All of these forms of government involve rule by man; only America, in principle, practices rule by law alone.
The government of the Church is a monarchy established by Christ Himself upon Peter, who was given the keys and the power to bind and to loose. However, the Catholic monarchy is not a hereditary or a dynastic monarchy, but one based upon and subject to fixed law.
The whole purpose of the Papacy and the Apostleship was and is to protect, rule by, pass on and teach, unchanged, the Revelation and the Law of God. Again, the law rules, not the man. The Pope is not free to change any teaching or make any new ones. He is as bound by the law as any other Catholic.
In America, high offices or positions and military commissions are not inherited and they are no longer purchased, at least not legitimately. They are earned; they are worked for; they are vocations or callings. The American government is not the law; it represents the law.
In the Church, Bishoprics or other clerical orders are not inherited nor are they purchased, at least not legitimately. They are earned; they are worked for; they are vocations or callings. The Church government is not the law; it represents the law.
In both cases, there is no legitimate or legal class or caste system. The law is represented equally to the citizenry and to members of the government. That is what Lincoln meant by "government of the people, by the people and for the people", and that is what the Papacy means when it calls itself "the servant of the servants".
In both cases, governments come and they go, but the law remains.
How did it ever come to be that a woman, or a minority race, or a sexual deviate, or a profligate sinner is perfectly free to discriminate against me, and is protected by law to do so, and is even protected by ordained clerics to do so, and yet, I am not free to discriminate in any way against any of them?
By what logic? By what right? By what legitimate and moral rule?
How is it, and how did we allow it to come to be, that they can call me all sorts of names, and if I answer back, I can be fired, sued, deprived of property, run out of business and even suffer at the hands of the courts.
How did they get to keep freedom of speech, the press, religion, etc., while I am deprived of all of them? Why am I restricted, even by law, and even in some cases by the Church, from even defending myself, let alone criticizing clear evil?
Being white, being male, being straight, being rigidly Catholic, being Constitutionalist American, I have a big target on my back, and everybody around feels perfectly free to take a shot at it.
But I shoot back, and, most often shoot first. Rhetorically speaking.
Because I am an American, and a Catholic, and that makes me free. And if anyone doesn't claim his own freedom then he doesn't have it.
I am a native American, whether anyone else claims exclusivity to that title or not. I was born American and I am native American, and if you don't like that, that's just too bad. I am native American anyway.
I don't owe anyone of any other race or ethnicity, or of the opposite sex, or of any imaginary "gender", or of any other religion, politics, philosophy or ethnic background, anything at all, just by dint of having been born what I am.
All I owe anyone is the equal love and respect due to all human beings.
I don't particularly give a damn what color anyone is. Why should anyone give a damn what color I am?
I firmly believe in the Politics of Division. I am an American and this is America; if you don't like it, you are free to leave. I am not going anywhere. I am a "rigid" Catholic and proud of it; if you don't like it, you can go to hell.
It is time to Divide. (See the Winnowing Pages.)
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Get in the fight! Engage!
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
