Reagan was right. If we lose liberty here, there will be no place on earth that will be safe for liberty. There's no place else to go. And liberty is being systematically destroyed here, on purpose, by our own government. The Parties are doing it; some on purpose; some through blindly following Party leadership. All the Candidates are either in on it, or they don't even see it. It's all so obvious to all of us. Why don't any of the Candidates see it? How could they be so blind?
Our whole American Political Ruling Class (the Left-leaning sophists of the Washington Beltway - New York High-Society; the Oligarchs and other Big Donors, Crony Capitalists and Lobbyists; the Marxified Academics, News Anchors, Media Personalities, Pundits and Publishers; the big shot Leftist Crony Bishops, Crony Clerics and Religionists; Leftist Hollywood Celebrity; Professional Political Office Holders; Cabinet Members; Justices and Judges; Big-Shot Bureaucrats; etc.) who actually own and operate the two Political Parties that actually run the government, don't have the slightest clue regarding how out of touch they are with the American people, whose views some of them actually think they represent. But they don't. They don't live in the real world.
They don't get out much. They only talk to and listen to each other. They assume their political opinions are also our political opinions. But they are not even close. In their Leftist, Provincial, super-sophisticated blindness, they just might make Donald Trump our next President.
In Culture=Religion+Politics we covered how a common morality, born of religion, provides the basis for Politics; the development of civil law and civil government. It's called an Ethos, or a distinct collective social identity that makes a distinct People, and therefor a distinct sovereign nation. The United States was founded upon the religion and science based Natural Law principles laid out in our national Declaration of Independence, and these Natural Law principles and Natural Law citizen civil rights were legally fixed in our American Constitution. That Constitution, which is supposed to be the supreme law of the land, lays out the entire organization of our civil government and provides all of its rules of operation. How our Politics are to be done.
Well, guess what? That ain't what we're doing.
It's the Political Parties that are running the government. Not according to the Constitution, but according to Party Agendas and Party Missions. And what are the missions of the Parties? Well, the Mission of the Marxocrat Party is the advancement of International Marxism at the expense of Constitutional America and National Sovereignty itself. The Mission of the Republicrat Party appears to be purposely ineffective opposition to whatever the Marxocrat Party is doing while publicly pretending to be "Conservative". And if that's not true, then, the Republicrat Party has no real mission, and no real purpose for being. At least the Marxocrats have a mission and an agenda and a purpose.
While it is clear and obvious that Obamunism and the Marxocrat Party agenda are systematically destroying Constitutional America and American sovereignty, and that the Republicrat Party is in full "Bipartisan Cooperation" with all of those efforts on all of those fronts, that is not what this article is about. We have, and will again, address all of those bipartisan efforts to "properly govern" us out of existence. What this is about is the deeper cultural bombs contributing to our destruction, that nobody is talking about. By all appearances, these problems are not even on any of our candidate's radar.
The formula Culture = Religion + Politics still holds true. The problem confronting the American Culture, and causing it's rapid deterioration into an unidentifiable randomness, as I see it, involves:
On the Religion side,
On the Political side,
In literal terms, a neighbor is a member of the neighborhood. Jesus Himself give us a better definition in Luke 10;25-37, when the lawyer put Him to the test. In that Parable, the Samaritan was the neighbor. Not the Priest; not the Levite; and certainly not the Robber. The lesson in "Go ye and do likewise" seems to be that we are to be a neighbor to someone in need in our neighborhood, and in our culture. Simple common sense indicates that neighborly behavior is how neighborhoods and cultures improve, both in a practical sense and in a spiritual sense. The "neighborhood" is wherever you are at the moment. That is how we fulfill the Second Great Commandment.
The current misapplication of Love Of Neighbor would have government(s) forcibly take from their own culture to give to some other culture, possibly evil or ruled by evil, and almost certainly involving more corrupt profit for government(s) than actual "charity" for citizens. Taking from someone in one neighborhood and giving to another is not charity. It is stealing, and it is inducing dependency, at the expense of human liberty, on both sides of the transaction. The UN loves it, because the UN is totally corrupt, and profits enormously from it, as from other frauds.
Jesus' new Commandment, to love one another as He loved them, was not universal. He was speaking to His Church; to His disciples. That is how the world was to know that they were His, by their love of one another. See John 13:34 and John 15:12, and surrounding verses. By love is how they were to separate themselves from the world, and identify themselves as Christians. They were to be making and growing a Christian "neighborhood" of love, eventually to encompass the whole world.
In Matt 5:43-45, and in Luke 6:26-35 we are to love our enemies, do good to them, and expect nothing in return. I submit that the enemies our Lord was referring to were enemies within the culture; slanderers and detractors; those who would take you to court; tax collectors; those who would take what you have; political opponents; etc. Not to any potential barbarian horde outside the city walls.
The culture in which Jesus lived in His incarnate form included His disciples, other Jews who were not His disciples, gentiles, various kinds of pagans, and the Romans, who were the current rulers. All of these smaller cultures were part of the larger culture of Palestine, and the still larger culture of the Roman Empire. The Roman rulers allowed, to a certain degree, freedom of religion, so long as the religion did not threaten Rome or Roman rule. Thus, the Jews were allowed to practice their religion and to maintain some level of autonomy.
All of this changed after the Jewish rebellion was brutally put down, around 70 A.D., and the Temple was burned. And, with the rising of demented and/or evil Roman emperors, as always happens in governments of men, the Roman Empire began to persecute the Christians, too.
But note well that, while Jesus was on earth, He recognized Roman government as legitimate governmental authority, and did not oppose it when put to the test on that point. See Matt 22:21; Mark 12:17; Luke 20:25.
Note also that Jesus' own executioners, to whom he submitted, and offered no resistance, and "turned the other cheek", were, at that time, members of the current culture, and the current neighborhood, and representing the current government. All of whom He forgave from the cross.
It was the culture He was in that was first evangelized. He sent His disciples out to evangelize other cultures.
In my interpretation of His teaching and His example, in today's world, while we should submit to legitimate authority, that authority must reside in our own culture. We should not necessarily love, or submit to the authority of, say, Iran, or Russia, or China, or North Korea, or ISIS, or Islam, or Marxism, or atheism, or secularism, or the UN, or the World Court, or any other foreign entity, ideology or religion.
If I'm wrong about that, I'm sure someone will point it out soon enough.
America's USCCB (United States Council of Catholic Bishops), in a practical sense, interprets Love of Neighbor and/or Love of Enemy to be so universally applied as to include Love of Evil. Both the CCHD (Catholic Campaign for Human Development) and the CRS (Catholic Relief Services) charities are owned, operated and driven by the USCCB. And they both contribute, in indirect ways and through "partner" organizations, to absolutely evil operations such as Planned Parenthood, and other Abortion industry entities, Contraception, and general life-destructive, family-destructive and culture-destructive evil causes.
And then they lie about it, to cover it up. See Lucifer and the CCHD, and visit the Lepanto Institute website for the evidence. It cannot be denied, and it will not be denied forever. We actually have Roman Catholic Bishops who are liars, working to advance evil in the world.
We have Bishops and Priests who misapply Christian love to embrace obstinate unrepentant sinners, even those who are activist, agitating promoters of sin, and welcome them into full communion in the Church, with full participation in all Sacraments. We have Parishes who fly the rainbow flag of sodomy, and celebrate the Court's establishment of unconstitutional but "legal" homosexual "marriage". We even have a Bishop who leads homosexual parades, or parades celebrating public acceptance of homosexuality. And who celebrates it himself.
And we now have a Pope who says nothing about any of this, and, by his silence, we may assume that he goes along with it, or at least does not oppose it.
Like I said, the ultimate goal of those driving the Marxocrat Party is the end of the rule of law, and the establishment of the rule of man. The Old Time Marxocrat Party members seek to destroy America eventually, in a step-by-step, "evolutionary" process. The newer Obamunists in the Party seek to destroy America more suddenly, in a "revolutionary" process, through induced "popular" revolution.
The ultimate goal of those driving the Republicat Party - at least those of them who are not secretly in cahoots with the Marxocrats - is to be an accepted part of Washington High Society, to be in with the in crowd, to be part of America's Ruling Class, and to grow the government and increase the power and importance of the Ruling Class.
All at the expense of the Constitution, Representative Government and the Rule Of Law. Some of them do this purposely, and others are too blind to see it. Most Repulicrats are Marxists of the Progressive variety, and most of them don't even know it.
Political Parties are just like Bureaucracies, in that they become entities unto themselves, long after their purpose for being has been accomplished. They exist to exist, and to grow themselves. Give a petty bureaucrat a position and a little authority, and he will spend the rest of his life growing that position and authority, establishing little mini bureaucracies beneath him, and desperately convincing the world of how vitally important to the world and how irreplaceable he is. That is the nature of bureaucracy, and that is the nature of Political Parties.
That's why we wrote the following pages:
Two Party Treason: Marxist Democrats Vs. Big Government Republicans. If both political Parties violate the Constitution in different ways, what we have is two Party treason.
Imagining a No Party America, with political Parties outlawed. When Political Parties oppose or do not defend the Constitution it is time for a No Party America.
Political Parties: Redirecting allegiance away from the nation. Political Parties demand first obedience to the Party, not to the Constitution, slowly poisoning the nation.
American Constitutional Absolutism: Replacing Outlawed Political Parties. Only American Constitutional Absolutism. No Kings; no Cronies; no Parties; no Opposition to The Law.
Global Absolute Stupidassism: Opposing American Constitutional Absolutism. Most Political Parties and most Federal Bureaucracies are based on Global Absolute Stupidassism.
New Way American Politics: Restoring and Advancing Cultural Americanism. A New Way of doing our Politics after anathematizing Political Parties, Marxism, Islam and Globalism.
After all, America was not designed to be run by Political Parties. She was designed and Constituted to be run by Principles. And not by men of Party, but by men of Principle, who would adhere to their oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. But that's not what they're doing, in all three Constitutional branches of government. That oath is violated, across the board. The swearing of the oath of office is now nothing more than a photo-op for a wall-hanger.
Just as one current-news example, we see unconstitutionally legislated and/or unconstitutionally regulated "Anti-Discrimination" law aimed at encouraging, normalizing and protecting homosexuality as an invented "civil right" trumping and over-powering the Constitution's protection of the exercise of religion, as an actual Constitutional Civil Right.
The Courts, up and down the line, including even the Supreme Court, are loaded down with Party Picks, devoid of Principle, who will always favor the Party Agenda over the Constitution. They will abuse their positions to legally force American citizens to violate their own consciences and proactively participate in the celebration of sodomy, or face legal penalties. In strict accordance with the Party Line, and in direct violation of the American Constitution.
Do you see any Candidate who has a problem with the Party System?
That's funny, neither do I.
Trump is the only guy out there who is bucking Party power. Maybe for the wrong reasons, but he is doing it, and nobody else is opposing their Party. Nobody else is opposing the Party Owners. Which is to say, all of them are Party Hacks.
I hate Trump, but I love what he is doing to the Republicrat Party.
We talked about how to shut down all the unnecessary and unconstitutional agencies and bureaucracies that are unconstitutionally regulating the private sector, meaning us, nearly out of existence among the Cut Bureaucracy pages. Those strategies, and those among the Fixing Constitutional America pages, are never going to get off the ground unless and until the power of the Political Parties is somehow destroyed.
Aticle 1, Section 1:
What that means is that all new law originates in Congress, and nowhere else. This is to guarantee that new law
The Constitution nowhere grants Congress the ability to delegate their exclusive legislative authority to any extra-constitutional entity, such as any agency or bureaucracy that exists, or that may come into existence.
But that ain't what's happening.
The People, the States and the Constitution are being "Regulated" out of existence by unelected, unrepresentative and unaccountable bureaucrats, who simply pass regulations with full force of law behind them, in accordance with Political Party agendas. We are being buried under mountains of unconstitutional and unrepresentative regulations issued from bureaucracies that should not even exist.
The Political Parties shouldn't even exist.
Do you see any candidate talking about eliminating any of these unconstitutional entities?
That's funny, neither to I.
Marxism, in every form and variation, is opposed to the foundational Principles of America. It opposes equality of all men before the law, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Which is to say, it is irreconcilably anti-American. Yet today, it is the ideology that dominates academia, public education, entertainment, the Press and the Broadcast Media, publishing, the Marxocrat Party and even Science (or Scientism). And perhaps even religion. It has certainly made strategic inroads into Catholic thought.
This invasive, parasitic, enemy ideology is what gave birth to the PC (Political Correctness) movement, nudging those infected to "voluntarily" surrender civil rights, particularly the right to freedom of speech, in favor of being "nice", and Politically Correct.
However in the world could such an anti-American ideology gain such political power and popularity in America, you might ask.
Well, it first took control of academia through the subversive stratagems of the infamous Frankfort School, and from there, it took control of the Education, the Press, the Arts and Entertainment. It was the subversive, ideological warfare branch of the attack, while a more direct secret espionage attack aimed at infiltrating government and defense was going on at the same time.
After the Political and Media public humiliation of Joe McCarthy, Marxism / Communism / Socialism / etc., came a little more above ground, to be seen as less of a mortal enemy of American, and more of "just another political opinion among the many". An innocent opinion, that's all. It even had a legitimate place in the freewheeling American political process. The fact that it was anti-American was less and less recognized, even as it worked to insidiously demonize America in American student minds.
Rabidly anti-American Marxism in America came even more above ground, and even went public, with the advance of Gramsci Marxism. Read the plan of Gramsci, and look around yourself today. Marxism is nowhere condemned. The guy you play poker with, or watch sports with, or go fishing with, or go to Church with, may be an ideological Marxist. Openly. And not consider himself to be an anti-American. Your favorite news anchor is probably an ideological Marxist. Your kid's teacher is probably an ideological Marxist. Your favorite entertainer is probably an ideological Marxist.
The advance of moral depravity in our American culture was and is sponsored by anti-American Marxism. Abortion; the contraception-mentality; homosexuality; Homosexual "marriage"; free sex; gender identity crisis; all, and more, are part of a subversive Marxist Sexual Revolution in our country, and in the larger world. I urge you to learn all you can about Cultural Marxism, so that you can see the problem for what it is, and spread the word. The video at the last link above is quite revealing. A vital point made by Brazilian philosopher Olavo De Carvalho, in describing Cultural Marxism, involves the Idea, or, Ideology of Marxism, which most of us overlook today. It is not a government entity. It is a cultural entity. Marxism existed some sixty years before the Soviet Union existed, and it continues to exist after the demise of the Soviet Union. It does not depend upon governments. It is stronger than ever, and it is an international idea, with global aspirations.
It is organized. It is centered on the International Communist Party, and it is stronger now and making more progress than ever before.
We have shown herein, especially among the Mainstream News Media pages, how the American Press has become the semi-official Propaganda Wing of the American Marxocrat Party. Do you see anyone trying to Take Down the Media, or any Candidate even talking about Separating the Media from the Government? No? That's funny, neither do I. Including The Donald.
But Donald Trump is not just standing his ground against them, he is taking it to them, and giving them hell. And weakening them. And in so doing, he is showing the public what absolutely biased liars they are, and we, the lowly hoi polloi, love it! It resonates! It's about time!
Just look at the top Presidential candidates from the Marxocrat Party, and realize that they are serious contenders, with a serious following.
Hillary Clinton. Her two major hero-figures upon who she built her "philosophy" and to whom she owes the most, and upon whose shoulders she stands, and who she seeks to emulate, are,
Bernie Sanders, an open, proud, publicly admitted, life-long Socialist, which is to say, an Anti-American. And currently, he has even more of a following than Madam Hillary. What can I say?
Every other potential candidate, and every other big-shot Marxocrat, is just as anti-American, just as Marxist and just as morally depraved as Madam Hillary and Bernie Sanders. Elizabeth Warren; Joe Biden; Cap'n Planet Algore; John "I was in Vietnam" Kerry; Nancy Pelosi; Harry Reid; etc. They are all pretty much alike in their anti-Americanism and their Marxism and their moral degeneracy. And they are all quite popular with Marxocrat Party Base, which is comprised of all the Leftist sophists of the Ruling Class, and the gigantic and ever growing Moron Vote.
This is the result of We The People allowing Critical Thinking to be systematically eliminated from formal education and from the collective social consciousness. We ought to know better, but we don't. The Moron Vote is now huge, and even the non-moron vote rarely even recognizes all forms of Marxism to be the mortal enemy of the Declaration and the Constitution. Not good, yes; but mortal enemy? Not so many of us see it any more.
The News Media loves the Marxocrat candidates, and hates the Republicrat Party. The Media is, after all, Marxist to the core, and therefore, anti-American; and, like the public, most of them don't even see it, or know what they are.
And what does the Republicrat Party do about all of this? Not much. Using Politically Correct language. Not condemning the opposition. Opposing "Social Conservatism", supporting "Fiscal Conservatism" with their lips only, and generally doing nothing Conservative at all. Offering the hand of bipartisan cooperation to the Marxocrats, and promising to partner-up to "get things done" and "properly govern" with them. The only ones they politically attack are fellow Republicrats who oppose all of this. Not Marxocrats, but Republicrats. Leadership seeks to remain "in with the in-crowd" of Washington high society, which includes the Media and the Marxocrat Party, but denies admittance to Conservative Pro-Americans.
Among all American Marxists, the more rabid and violent Marxist-Leninist types, like Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, would like to build up to violent revolution right now, the sooner the better, and get on with it. But America's newer Cultural-Marxists would prefer to continue dumbing us down, feeding us lies, motivating us in error and evil, and just standing back while we destroy ourselves. America's Moron Third, who, when they're paying attention at all, get all their socio-political and scientific "facts" from entertainment channel and from "News" sources like CNN, don't know, just as one instance, that Climate Change is nothing more than an international, government sponsored, money-making, power-growing and political power-centralizing hoax.
Saving America, which is to say, restoring the original concept of our Constitutional Republic, and returning American Government to the spirit and letter of Constitutional Law, will cause considerable violence and bloodshed. If you work your way through the Fixing America pages, and especially the Cut The Spending pages, you will see that, accomplishing even a few of those recommendations will begin to destroy the Ruling Class, i.e., Washington - New York High Society, and it will devastate the whole economy of Washington D.C. Causing riots and bloodshed.
Currently, Washington D.C. may be the only, or best, example of any geographic part of America that is not experiencing economic hardship. Quite the opposite. There's a boom going on in Washington, because Washington is the seat of government, and government is booming. Most of the population is employed by government or dependent upon government, with higher pay and better benefits than the rest of us. The highest property values, the highest per capita pay and benefits, the most consumerism, the most spending, the highest rents and cost of living, are all right there, in Washington D.C.
Almost no one in Washington feels the pain of what the rest of the country is going through. That's why they believe all the media lies. The upper crust is completely out of touch with non-Washington America, and the lower levels are doing very well, compared to everywhere else. And the Moron-Vote, all across Fly-Over Country, even though they may be experiencing economic hardship, the only news they get is from the Entertainment Channel and the Mainstream News, so they are mesmerized into believing things are not so bad. Don't believe what you see with your own eyes all around you; believe whatever they say on the TV. It's what they've been conditioned to do.
Take down just one or a couple or a few of our unconstitutional federal bureaucracies, as we have recommended, let alone all of them, and millions of government employees will suddenly be unemployed, without income and without benefits. Most of them reside in or around Washington D.C. From millionaire big shot top dogs to the lowest employee; they won't be able to pay their rent or mortgages, or their utilities, and - what is worse - they don't know how to work and make a living out here in the real world. Kill a bureaucracy and you kill all the welfare "entitlements" and "benefits" along with it.
Government employees will not go into unemployment easily or entirely peaceably, particularly the lower level employees. There will be the problem of taking back government property from them. Which you might think would be simply a matter of a security person showing up with a box to pack up all the stuff from the employee's desk and escorting him to the parking lot.
Not so simple. Many if not most unconstitutional bureaucracies have been militarized and weaponized under Comrade Obama, peace be upon him. Each unconstitutional bureau now has its own special police force as part of the bureau, with SWAT training, weapons and equipment. After all, the EPA really needs automatic weapons with which to protect the polar bears and enforce unconstitutional environmental regulations. You've seen, on TV, all the bold white letters on the backs of police in videos of various police activities; FBI, DEA, ATF, etc. Well, ad EPA, HUD, HHD, TSA, etc., to the list. Even the Forestry service, and National Park workers.
All of them are, I believe, Obamunism's intended future Crack Down force whose purpose is to put down whatever appears to be insurrection or revolution by the people, once martial law is declared and the constitution is suspended. The Obamunist government plan is to surreptitiously instigate uprisings, so they can be put down in a take-over, a la Machiavelli.
All of them will not surrender their weapons peaceably when mass government unemployment approaches. The newer Marxists would prefer to just increase self destructive politics and let us destroy ourselves; but the old time Marxists, including the Obamunists, are ever increasingly pushing and prodding and victimizing us into eventual violent reaction, which is what they want. Many different types of organized Agent Provocateurs are among us now, to promote and participate in violence, not realizing that they have been purposely organized, motivated and set up for slaughter, again, a la Machiavelli.
Shutting down the unconstitutional government student loan monopoly will cause similar social problems. If government student loans are suddenly cut off and no longer available, and if existing student loans are suddenly just forgiven and written off, there will be hell to pay. Cutting all government subsidies at the same time, as we have recommended, and moving all government contracts and security clearances away from universities dominated by Marxist governing boards and faculty would kill "business as usual" and normally continually and exponentially growing profit for academia.
Suddenly, all universities and colleges would have to charge tuition fees that students and their families could afford to pay. They couldn't do that without radical cut-backs. Why, they have on their payrolls all those legions of tenured anti-American Maxists. (I mean Professors). Tenure says they can never be gotten rid of. So, either that would change, or, the universities would eventually go out of business. Professors might be demonstrating out in the streets.
Cutting the Department of Education would be perhaps even worse. Suddenly, an unconstitutional bureaucracy that sends tax money to states and localities for public schools would disappear, and all that money along with it. Lots of local schools would either go private or go out of business, and teacher's unions would have to begin bargaining with parents for higher teacher wages, rather than cutting deals with the politicians they own. Or go out of business. No more automatic funding out of federal taxes. It would also mean no more Commie-Core. The teachers wouldn't like that.
Getting us back under the Constitution will cause major resistance, probably including violence.
An unemployed mass of government bureaucrats would be offset by a gigantic economic national boom. As we said in Fixing America, all of this must be precipitated by Fast Tracking the Fair Tax, in order to fully fund the government, including Social Security, and begin to operate with a balanced budget. Almost immediately. Just eliminating the income tax and the payroll tax, and eliminating the need to file a tax return ever again, and eliminating the IRS, all by itself, would begin the boom.
Big business from all over the world would seek to move to America for the tax haven it would represent from all the rest of the world. Everyone working in America would get an immediate big raise. No more income or social security taxes. Every employer would get a reduction in costs. No more tax accountants, tax lawyers or tax auditors. Just the business of the business. We would become the world's greatest tax haven for business.
Only the Fair Tax would do this; not any Flat Tax. Do you see any candidate talking up the Fair Tax? That's funny, neither do I.
None of the candidates talked about fiercely building "The Wall" and getting the criminal aliens the hell out of here until Donald Trump brought it up; and even he would still allow some of them to come back for some reason. All of them use carefully politically corrected speech, to one degree or another.
The most popular term in used among them may be "Nobody is talking about rounding them all up." Well, why the hell not? That's what We The People want to be done. Whether the Pope likes it or not, and whether anyone likes it or not, we have a right to be and remain a sovereign nation with border integrity and our own immigration law. I know how much this Pope and much of the world hates America, but that's just too bad. We should continue to exist as a nation, and unless we actually strive to continue to exist, and put in some actual effort to continue to exist, we will simply self destruct. That's the course we're on.
Te Cruz looked to be the best to me until he voted in the dark to support the secret decision hidden in the basement, because it could not stand the light of day, could not possibly have been representative of the people and could not possibly have been Constitutional. No man of high principle ever would have voted for such a thing under such circumstances. I don't give a damn what his excuse was. My faith in Cruz as being a man of rock solid principle is now gone.
Still, he looks to be among the best in the pack. Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina are looking better and better over time. Rick Santorum always looked good to me. As did Scott Walker and Bobby Jindal.
Rand Paul is, first, a Libertarian, which is to say, a Moral Relativist, who doesn't believe in any common moral code for the whole American nation. This is a "screw whoever you want to, just leave me out of it" form of social stupidity that can only compromise good, and evil always wins in that compromise. Good cannot be compromised into being anything other than good; evil cannot be "tolerated" into being anything other than evil. It is a denial of Objective Truth. Libertarianism, i.e., Moral Relativism, is a slipping into belief in "I'm OK, you're OK" Variable Reality, and a movement toward social insanity.
Libertarianism starts the abandonment of Ethos, and all the identifying social characteristics that make and define a distinct People, identifiable from others because of a common community moral code. The Libertarian tolerates evil in society, and to me, that leaves Rand Paul out. He also carefully courts various splinter group votes, not believing that there are enough of us Conservatives to win the general election. He is wrong about that, too.
The rest of them, including Marco Rubio, are solid Party men, and I have no time for any Party Hack, or any Republicrat Party supporter or under-cover operative. They, too, oppose American Principles.
The key to destroying the big money requirements of elections, and the close linkage between Crony Capitalists, the News Media, Politicians and Political Office Holders, is the Party System itself. Destroy the Parties, and you will be on the path to a real Constitutional America.
The whole of the American federal government is today absolutely dominated by people who are, to some degree, Political Party Hacks of one Party or the other. The Senate, the House, the Presidency and the Supreme Court. All three branches are absolutely dominated by officials who owe and pay more allegiance to Political Party Agendas than to the Constitution they falsely swore to uphold and defend against all enemies, foreign or domestic. They themselves are indeed the primary domestic enemies of the Constitution.
While the Marxocrat and Republicrat Party Agendas may be radically different from each other, they are exactly alike in these two respects:
In point of fact, they operate against the people, and against the Constitution. It is, for them, all about political power, and political trickery to gain more political power. Salesmanship. One-Upmanship.
The reason Donald Trump's message is resonating out here is right under the noses of his chief detractors. They say he is no politician, and they're right. But he is, before he is anything else, a Salesman. A better salesman than any of them. Salesmanship - the art of convincing others of their need for something - is at the heart of both politics and business, and the Trumpster is a master salesman. Which is to say, he is a bullsh*ter. The best salesmen can really sling the bullsh*t. It's how they make their living. It's an art. And Trump has successfully sold to Kings, Potentates and Prime Ministers.
The difference is that he sells real things to real people (whether they need it or not), and our politicos typically sell smoke, mirrors and imaginary - false images - to an ever increasingly and purposely confused citizenry. He knows how to communicate with real people; our professional politicians only know how to fool real people.
But the people are finally waking up.
Christian "Love Your Neighbor" and "Love Your Enemy" have been grossly expanded to include "Welcome All Forms Of Sin" and "Tolerate Even Evil" into a once upon a time recognizable Judao-Christian larger culture. Every blessing of every Scriptural prohibition is a denial of God and His will. Priests, Ministers and Rabbis can pretend, or even believe, that they preach God and Godliness to their flocks, but if they welcome committed, obstinate unrepentant sinners into the fold, they thereby betray God and their own ministry.
The religions upon which the Nation was founded have allowed themselves to be watered down with Marxism-driven Political Correctness. "Judgmentalism" has been so religiously and socially demonized as to even prohibit simple adult judgment and common sense. Of course responsible adults are supposed to exercise judgment. But we are being told, by Priests, Ministers and Rabbis, not to exercise it. And this PC thinking is at the root of our growing cultural and social insanity.
First Amendment Freedom Of Religion, for instance, under radicalization of Marxist Political Correctness, insists that "religions" that hate us and seek to destroy us absolutely must, by Constitutional Law, be allowed to be among us, and hate us, and destroy us. It's Freedom Of Religion, after all. Therefore - in open defiance of simple common sense - we must be open and welcoming to Islam, which is our sworn and implacable mortal enemy, from its very birth.
I don't say this on my own; Islam says it, in its own books.
We are called to exercise adult judgment - not as the world judges, but to judge rightly - and to separate ourselves from the world and from sinners, for the sake of the Kingdom. Political Correctness opposes any such thing. We are all - whether Christians and Jews or not - supposed to love one another, no matter what any of us are or do. Even in spite of what Scripture says about it.
Political Correctness has even infected our own clergy. And not for the first time. (Marxism didn't invent Political Correctness; it just capitalized on it.)
Is it any wonder that the Culture Of Death has advanced right here, and has become an accepted, integral part of our larger culture? We separate ourselves from nothing. We anathematized nothing. By our silence, we participate in everything.
At the real root of our current Culture Of Death is, of course, social acceptance of Artificial Contraception. It isn't even recognized as death-dealing to humanity. It is almost totally socially accepted; even recommended. TV Situation Comedy programs, Movies and Stand-Up Comedy routines are built around jokes portraying those who don't use it as stupid and backward, and those who use it as sophisticated and forward. And everybody laughs. But nobody really gets it. Too few see it for what it is. It is the beginning of culture rot; it is the root of the Culture Of Death. It is self-destructive.
And it is now pervasive; it is even common inside the Church.
All the frauds and hoaxes of Scientism are perpetrated, accepted and blessed by the whole of the "Sophisticated" Ruling Class, and by the whole of the insulated, indoctrinated and propagandized Moron Vote. There is no real science and no real proofs or empirical evidences behind any of them. All of them are either invented by Marxists or commandeered by Marxists for the purposes of furthering the Marxist agenda. The "Science" behind them would be laughable, if the consequences were not so tragic. Real Scientists should be insulted by all of these obvious frauds and hoaxes.
This is Political Science (or, Politicized Science), pushed upon an unsuspecting world by Global Conspirators, Crony Capitalists, Oligarchs, Marxists of various spot and stripe, Criminal Elements and would-be Dictators. Not real scientists, and not seekers after Truth.
The whole, sole purpose for the Population Problem fraud is to make money, popularize and grow government, increase government power, popularize and grow the notion of International Government, and to focus and centralize all world political power. There is no real science behind it. Real science refutes it.
The whole, sole purpose for the Global Warming / Climate Change fraud is to make money, popularize and grow government, increase government power, popularize and grow the notion of International Government, and to focus and centralize all world political power. There is no real science behind it. Real science refutes it.
The whole, sole purpose for all of the frauds listed among the Eco-Nazi Movement frauds is to make money, popularize and grow government, increase government power, popularize and grow the notion of International Government, and to focus and centralize all world political power. There is no real science behind any of them. Real science refutes all of them.
The world is not in danger of running out of any natural resources or any fossil fuels, or food, or water, or anything. There is no need for any international plan or control or international government for "Sustainable" life on earth. It's an obvious fraud.
Species are not going extinct by the thousands on an annual basis. That's another obvious fraud.
Every single fraud the Marxocrat Party pushes, and these are just a few, is bought, hook, line and sinker, by the Moron Vote, who never get beyond the Entertainment Channel and CNN. And, it looks like all of them are bought, hook, line and sinker, by Pope Francis. And all of them, not by coincidence, just happen to reinforce his favorable predisposition for Marxist collectivization and redistribution over free markets and the liberty of man.
He may be a truly holy man, I don't know about that. I'm just a simple working man. I can't get past the fact that he believes all this truly silly and downright stupid Cartoon Science. The only alternative to either blind ignorance or true stupidity is that he could be knowingly furthering the fraud of it.
It's worse than being unscientific. It is stupid. Man cannot control the world's weather or climate. Why does that even need to be said?
Popes can be wrong about things unrelated to Revealed Truth, and unrelated to the unchanging faith and morals in that original Revelation to man. We have had bad Popes, corrupt Popes, even evil Popes; but none that ever taught anything new, or changed, or deleted from the original Revelation. The Church, and the Revealed Truth she protects, has survived bad Popes.
The problem is that, when a Pope speaks, millions listen, and are likely to believe what he says, even if it is involving civil politics and/or material science, or any other area outside the Sacred Deposit of Faith. They are still likely to be led astray. And that is bad for culture itself.
I cannot say why or how Pope Francis came to believe the things about the world that he believes. At the almost polar opposite end of the spectrum, we have Donald Trump, hardly what anyone would call a religious man, being almost purely worldly and selfist. But what he shares with Pope Francis is that he is a leader. (Certainly of a different sort). At a time when America is devoid of real leadership, The Donald is unmistakably a strong leader, and that's part of the reason he has this sudden large following.
The question is, where might he lead us.
Pope Francis leans Marxist, motivated by a sense of egalitarian "fairness" and a commitment to feeding the poor through redistribution of private property. Donald Trump leans Marxist, motivated by the Progressive impulse to grow government and use government to solve all problems. Both Trump and Francis favor "managed" economies. Both men favor the notion of government planned and controlled and managed economies, health-care systems, and even ecological systems, over nature and natural law. National and world economies, health-care systems and ecological systems all work better on their own without interference by plan or control or management by man.
The history of the USA proved it.
Natural Law exists. God did it. All we have to do is get government out of the way.
Trump would be a terrible President. But he would change our course. Now, since he is shaking things up so much, the other Republicrat candidates are starting to jump on the "Me Too!" train, and talk about how they might get rid of the criminal aliens, and the anchor babies, and take it to ISIS, and go after Iran, etc., etc., etc.
The problem is, they have burned us so many times that they can no longer be trusted. They are all talk. They are all devious.
If Trump goes Third Party, and his only Republicrat opposition is just another typical Party Hack, I will vote for Trump. I can never vote for any Marxocrat. Let's hope someone other than a Party Hack and other than Trump stands alone against the final Marxocrat candidate. No candidate is perfect, but I'm pretty much disgusted with the whole lot of them.
As for Pope Francis, well - who am I to judge?

Trump is constitutionally eligible to run for the office of president. Cruz is not and is a liar and a traitor for not caring about the constitution and willing to violate it for his own gain. We don't want another Obama.

I don't believe that is correct; Ted Cruz is indeed eligible to run for President. Rush Limbaugh recently addressed this when the "Anchor Baby" political-correctness brouhaha blew up in news, and even the "Conservative" commentators were damning Trump for using the term, let alone calling for their deportation. I believe Rush's stated position is correct, and Wills, Krouthammer, et all, are wrong again. As usual.
See the Constitution. Here's what the 14th Amendment, Section 1, says:
That was intended by the authors, in 1866, to make all slaves full American citizens, with all rights, responsibilities and privileges attendant thereof. Simple common sense tells us that it was not intended to allow any aliens to simply come here to give birth to "Anchor Babies" whose automatic citizenship would be used to get all other family members into the United States, circumventing all immigration law. The intent and the spirit of the Amendment was to make citizens of slaves, and nothing else.
The fact that those of us born here of American parents are automatically citizens was not created by the 14th Amendment. It has always been simply assumed, as in every other sovereign nation on earth. As is the fact that, when American citizens abroad give birth to new babies, those babies are American citizens. If it were otherwise, we would have lots of American military babies who were not citizens. Simple common sense applies here.
The path to naturalization is established in Article 1 Section 8, fourth paragraph, which lays out the limited powers of Congress. to quote:
So Congress sets naturalization law for foreign people coming into the country, not the 14th Amendment. The American Constitution was written for Americans, not for foreigners. Ted Cruz is a citizen, and was a citizen from birth.
But all the Mexican and other Anchor Babies are not, and never were. "Anchor Babies" are born to aliens, not Americans. Aliens are not covered by the Constitution.

Was waiting to get your thoughts on the election. I very much like Cruz, but am all in for the Donald as I believe nothing can be accomplished until we are able to thoroughly neutralize the Republican party establishment and the power of the press to pick our candidates. I have never in my lifetime seen someone dismantle the press so easily. It will sure be interesting to see how this current spar goes with FOX news. I stopped watching them over a year ago.
I believe Trump is the only candidate able to engage in a campaign like this, due to the fact that he does not require any outside funding or party assistance. The party is rigged from the inside, and all the other candidates are beholden in some way, even if they may not want to be, due to money.
If nothing else, I do believe that Trump does love our country and can be the catalyst that turns things around. I have a hunch that Cruz will be the VP pick. On the Democrat side, I have always thought it would be Biden to carry on Barry's third term. Looking like Fauxcahontas will be the VP pick. This could be a very fun and entertaining race for once!

Agreed. And I agree with your Fauxahontas prediction as quite likely.
I believe Trump is, at least, strongly pro-American, and that cannot be said of the Marxocrat Party or of the Republicrat Party. The more pro-American candidates will be subjected to intense pressure from the Party to change their main allegiance from America to the Party, and that pressure may prove irresistible for many or most of them. You're right. It's a money thing. Money is king in American politics.
That is what must be broken somehow.
My only fear regards Trump's principles. They should be to God, then Family, then Country. I'm afraid they may be to Self, then Business, then - who knows - maybe Family, maybe God. As an afterthought, if considered at all.
That means he could become a tyrant. The keyword is "could". We KNOW the Marxocrat Party opposition is driving at eventual tyrannical, totalitarian, dictatorial power, one way or another. That must be stopped, and if only a "could be" tyrant can stop it, then, so be it.
The Republicrat Party sure as hell won't do it. They've proved that.
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.

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
