I realize most of you who find my little dirt patch in the blogosphere, already know that. We have dozens of examples and in each case the “social experiment” lasted between 25 and 85 years. In most cases, the socialists were voted in, but famine and civil war were the end result. Let me restate that for the hard headed leftist who may find this blog. You can vote in socialsim; but starvation, execution or revolution are the only ways out. Most often with population loss measured in decade level percentages.
How a socialist regime stays in power:
- Free stuff to the lower end people — stolen from the wealthy
Of course with a very healthy skim given to the party officials, but how else can it be. It isn’t like you can divide up the ski Chalet among the poor. Give them some excess chickens and they will be so happy… for a while.
- Grift off the former system’s abundance until that system is RUN INTO THE GROUND and blame all the shortfalls on fixing the excesses of the old system
- Grift off the neighboring states who are NOT socialist. Steal their Intellectual Property. Use their schools to train your party loyal doctors, engineers, chemists…Buy their abundance at prices well below what your low productivity (read as serfs or slaves) workers can produce it for.
- Spend your available hard currency to build up a strong (for the area) military and begin farming them out as mercenaries (gaining hard currency and experience doing dirty deeds). That training will come in very handy vs internal strife that ALWAYS comes.
The only real difference between the soft socialism of Western Europe and that of say Venezuela, is Europe hasn’t chosen to use their military in that way — yet. AND they have a very healthy host to grift off of. Our country, the Great US of A.
If demential Joe and hatespate Harris end up winning, that host for Western European Socialistic parasitism will begin to falter. Don’t get me wrong, the rate of clinging and theft will ramp up, the HOST nation economy will falter, HARD. Friends, this has a huge global impact; especially on the soft socialist nations.
Let’s look at the cost of prescriptions. We (in the US) pay between 2 and 4 times the price for new drugs compared to European (Socialized Medicine) countries (if they are available there at all). If we take up the same model, (Socialize Medicine) the Pharma industry grinds to a halt. The number of new drug trials will drop by over 50% almost immediately and will further drop as time goes on. This will be repeated in almost all business sectors. To paraphrase Margaret Thatcher, you eventually run out of other people’s money. Without Uncle Sugardaddy, the world economy falters quite quickly. With a faulty world economy the 25-85 year lifespan of socialism drops to 15-30 years.
Before you think this is a good thing, the lifespan almost always ends in famine / revolution or both. That is without making mention of the intellectual / dissident purges (read as wholesale murders). I will note here that other than the US Revolution, US Civil War (kinda sorta), and if you squint real hard and take the long view, the French Revolution — there aren’t many revolutions in the history of the world that created a better environment than they disrupted. This is very true in the ten years after the first bloodshed. It does not matter which side ends up winning. Look at Africa from 1800, forward. Check up on the history of South American countries. Look up the Jacobite rebellion for examples of when the home team won, as to how badly that turned out for the rebels and to a lesser extent the victors.
My friends, we are the last great light and hope for humanity. American exceptionalism is the light that frees the world from decent into another age of darkness. We are that beacon. If we allow ourselves to slip into socialism, that light goes out for a generation (or more).
There is still hope, even if dementia joe makes the margin of fraud stand. That hope is an idea and an ideal. That hope and ideal lives in you. No one can take that from you. No one can strip your of your devotion to American exceptionalism, truth, capitalism and the American Constitution. But, you can abandon it.
The real battle has not yet begun. If Trump manages to beat the election fraud we win a brief reprieve. We much use the next four years to fire proof our elections, our economy and radically up root our acceptance of socialism in our schools. Remove your children from public schools. Demand a voucher system for charter schools in your state, with dollar for dollar portable matching.
If Trump loses, it is even tougher, but the same things apply, double. All politics is local. Be active locally and MAKE things happen. Positive things.
Our Founding Fathers demand it. They lead by example…my fortune and my sacred honor…
What are you willing to do, to ensure the light of the world stays brightly lit?
