political analysts, bright blog writers and others ….that the left or liberals are imposing an agenda on well meaning right – minded conservatives. They say these things as if there is genuine effort going on to impose classic socialism on Americans. Wouldn’t it be nice if that was actually the case?
That is an easy fix. Here is how things actually break down. As I have mentioned countless times, Big Tech, Big Pharma, Banking and Insurance completely control the flow of legislation and all government policies – plus what the general public hears, thinks and base their opinions on. This is the truth, and it is scary. So what do people do with scary things? They replace them with more pleasant thoughts.
Those called left or liberal, believe in policies deemed to make life, economic, legal and
all other policies more fair and equitable. Great and as appealing as these thoughts are , human
nature must change in order for these approaches to be successful. None of their cited
appealing outcomes will ever occur. This is socialism just as it has always been
Those called right or conservatives , get such enormous benefits even while they pound
their chests and profess to be stellar conservatives. In as little as an hour, the wealthy
probably suck more income and benefits out of the country than the poor have received
through government throughout all of history. Quantitative easing (QE) alone keeps profit margins of giant
corporations at high levels that would not be obtainable in a free market. QE is the source
of the heavily subsidized low mortgage rate folks are used to. High subsidies are present
in multiple products only the rich can afford. Corporations use government as a means
of forcing consumers to buy their goods and services. Government work pays better
than anything comparable in the private sector.
Those on the right are the most prolific socialists the world has ever seen. How do we
know this? What is socialism?
Socialism is the means by which something other than prices is used to
allocate resources in an economy. Political power is what rations economic
outcomes. So, the rich (along with other Americans with incomes in the upper half plus
all who work for the government) have learned how to draw their essence out of the
lower half by using principles of democracy. This is socialism because political power
has replaced price as the resource allocation in what was once and overwhelmingly free
There are no conservatives or liberals. We have two sides claiming the other is the cause
of problems. This is while your true government which dictates policy to your
perceived government picks the pockets of all citizens on both sides.
Who wants to think these things?
