We all know that Washington high-society, along with the properly indoctrinated, distracted and/or totally dependent Moron Vote is "out of touch" with the rest of America and even with reality itself. Out of touch is an understatement. They see nothing wrong with the economy, because all about them is full employment, lots of money being spent, lots of construction going on, lots of social activities and big events, a housing boom, and the whole economy is cooking along nicely.
But the only other places in America where that sort of thing is happening is where local businesses and jurisdictions have been able to get around the Obamunist-Marxocrat Party sponsored war on national energy, and do Fracking. Relative rarities. All the rest of "fly over country" is suffering a government imposed economic depression. Purposely.
Nobody in Washington is suffering. From the richest to the poorest, a booming economy means job availability at all levels, and money availability means opportunity, up and down the line. The reason is that there are so many thousands, indeed millions, employed by an ever increasingly bloated federal government. Everybody and his dog is a well paid and heavily benefited petty bureaucrat or government employee of some kind. And they buy houses, from the millions of dollars range on down to the trailer parks. And they spend money, and all the markets and stores and restaurants prosper, and hire employees, and expand.
Unemployment? What unemployment? They don't see no unemployment.
All of those government employees join the Moron Vote and the Welfare Dependent Vote as totally dependent upon the Marxocrat Party - Obamunism dominated government for their very livelihood. They will never vote Constitutionalist. They will always support the Socialism they see all about themselves. They don't even see us. They don't even consider where their pay and benefits and welfare are coming from.
The falsely advertised source of all that money is "The Rich". That's what the Obamunists, Marxocrats, the Media, Education, Academe, and even a lot of Republicrats, and other ideological Marxists of various description, all loudly proclaim. They're making the rich pay for it all, or, they're going to make the rich pay for it all. But that's a lie. They are the rich.
The rich are driving the bus. The richest people in America are the owners of "The Club", which is the owner of The Parties, which are really ruling the country outside of the bounds of the Constitution. Call it the Donor Class, or the Ruling Class, or whatever - they are making money on government deals, not spending it. The money is coming from what used to be called the economic Middle Class. Us.
Socialism never, ever, raises anyone out of poverty. What Socialism does is grow the impoverished class at the expense of the not yet impoverished citizenry. Socialism spreads and grows the poverty, it never alleviates or eliminates it, and it certainly never hurts the really rich. They are the top Socialists.
But, sooner or later, the well runs dry, and there is no Middle Class left for Socialism to rob. Then, either the system collapses in economic disaster, or transforming revolution occurs, or both. The only possible ultimate result is either complete disintegration of a nation or pure dictatorship replacing all preexisting aspects of government.
At this point, We The People can only begin to make ourselves prosper again is by shutting down all unconstitutional parts of Big Government. That means, essentially, bureaucracy. If we manage to make even a fraction of the severe cuts recommended among the many "shut down bureaucracy" pages, or among the many "restore the Constitution" pages, the whole Washington-New York economy will be devastated, bringing about a local economic depression, for years.
It would be so bad as to incite riots and violence and blood in the streets. The sort of thing Marxist ideologues have been prepping the Moron Vote to do. Big city dependent citizenry have been trained to believe they have an absolute right to their government welfare, and big government employees have been trained to believe that they have an absolute right to their government jobs, for life, no matter what.
All in direct violation of the very idea, the very design, of America.
If the nation is to be restored to the rule of law, and the Constitution is to be restored as the supreme law of the land, then we have to do what has to be done to get there, and if Washington burns, so be it. The alternative is the eventual death of the whole nation. Unconstitutional bureaucracy and unconstitutional bureaucratic regulations have got to be destroyed, and that cannot be done without laying off untold thousands of government employees, permanently.
That would mean a local housing market disaster, mortgage foreclosures up and down the line, from multi-million dollar properties to mobile homes, and a virtual end to the new car market, etc., etc., etc. Hotels and restaurants would go broke overnight. The only thing going for Washington DC would be the tourist industry, and that would go away so long as there were riots, burning and looting, and there would be riots, burning and looting.
Eventually, the Washington-New York economy would get over it, and all of America would be in an economic boom, in the best of outcomes.
Doing nothing would certainly bring about the worst of outcomes.
It ain't pretty, but that's the way it is.

I thank you for the great work that you are doing. Few realize the damaging effects of socialism and the dependency that it breeds. According to Paul Volker, a former Chairman of the Federal Reserve, a collapse of many municipalities is about to occur with a dramatic failure of social services. This combined with the criminal population of sanctuary cities will pose a "moment of truth" for those so enamored of socialism and its big brother, Communism. The alternative to this reign of liberal terror continues to be, The Constitution, the rule of law and individual liberty and the good sense crafted within the Bill of Rights. The significant good sense being the right of a free people to bear arms. Thank you for your persistence.

Thank you; you are quite correct, and so is Volker. A reset of one kind or another is coming, and it ain't gonna be pretty, which ever way it goes.
We are proof-reading my book before final publication, and it occurred to me that these things needed to be said; this little rant will be attached to the chapter on our unconstitutional bureaucracies. Marcie is picking on me, because I never seem to run out of words; she's right, I suppose. Every time I think I'm finished, I think of something else that needs to be said. This could go on forever if I don't end it. Hopefully, the book will be available before this month ends.
Thanks again, and God bless.

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.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

The Purpose of this grouping of articles is to highlight the three incompatible geopolitical movements in global contention: American Constitutionalism, Marxism and Islam. And to give evidence to the insidious infiltration of Marxist and Islamic thought, and corrosive evil, into American Culture.
A fixed social moral code, born of religion, is what makes a unique, identifiable People, distinct from other Peoples. Distinct People of a common moral code make civil laws representing and reinforcing their common moral code, via Politics. When a distinctly moral People live within a distinct Political organization they form a distinct and identifiable Human Culture.
Truth is the only thing we can Unite on. Yet Real Truth Divides.
Truth Divides, because Truth Hurts. Any "Truth" that indiscriminately Unites is a False Truth.
Broken Communion with God ultimately causes the broken human community. Man is a social being, in need of community with others. Broken Communion is an unnatural disorder for man.

On entering (or avoiding) the Catholic American Discomfort Zone. Let's not talk about Religion or Politics today; it's confrontational and uncomfortable. Let's avoid the Discomfort Zone.
Unique, Distinct, Identifiable Human Culture = Religion + Politics. The Formula [Culture = Religion + Politics] is what makes a distinct, identifiable People a distinct and identifiable People.
The Formula [Culture=Religion+Politics] is Inviolate. Politics merely organize Human Culture around the predominant Religious beliefs of a distinct and identifiable People.
Whether the result means death or rebirth, the American Reset will be painful. America was born in Revolution. If the reset means rebirth, it will only come through re-revolution.
On the Coming Total Global Reset. This Global Reset will touch every aspect of human life, and nothing will be the same again.

The Washington DC economy of bureaucracy is booming amid national depression. While the nation suffers economic depression, the local Washington-New York economy of bureaucracy roars on.
It ain't raining cats and dogs around here; it's raining stupidity. You've heard of trickle-down economics? Well, this is pouring down stupidassery.
[Culture = Religion + Politics] is the inviolate formula of Civilization itself. Culture = Religion + Politics makes a unique, distinct, identifiable People. Take Religion (and religious morality) out of it, and the Culture disintegrates.

Crony-Catholicism? Really? The USCCB is advancing Obamunism? Say it ain't so, Joe! It's bad enough that we now have so many Marxified Bishops, but now they actually act against the faith?
"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
