The Truth About Government

If I may, I would like to make a statement based on something I heard Dr. J. Vernon McGee made one time.

The best government in the hands of bad people is horrid.  Even, it will tend to get worse.

The worst government in the hands of good, God-fearing people will tend to be good.  Moreover, it will tend to get better.

Keeping this in mind, is it better to put the control of the government in the hands of people who want to destroy our government as we know it.  After all, even Obama promised hope and change.  I didn’t see much hope but I saw a lot of change… all in the wrong direction.  Do we really want to repeat that mistake and put the country of communists or are we going to learn from the last mistake?

Coverup, Really

Pelosi said that President Trump is covering something up, though she would be hard-pressed to determine what it is he is covering up.  I mean after two years and four investigations, no one has found anything for him to cover up.

This is not just dumb but willful stupidity.  Not only is it not the truth but she knows that it isn’t true.  That makes her a liar as well as dumb.  Then too, she expects us to believe it.  Now that is really dumb.

Then, of all things, after she verbally assaults President Trump, she expects him to work with her as if she said nothing.  That means she’s not just dumb but also has a lot of audacity.

PANIC!!!

The dummycrats have done what they do best.  They wasted $30 million on a do-nothing investigation.  Now that it has become obvious, they know it is time to PANIC!!!  Now they are trying all sorts of things to distract the people.

They have no reason to fear though in the long run.  The media will do their part for them.  They will spread their lies as the farmer might spread feed for their animals.

Well, there is one thing some of the dummycrats need concern with.  Now that the investagation is over, the justice department can go after the real criminals.

The Truth About McCain

President Trump leveled complaints at McCain a few times today.  Almost instantly, the news media, including most of the Fox News anchors, voiced their disgust.

Personally, I welcome the remarks.  More than that, I find them mild, considering what he deserves.  Some may say we should not speak badly of the dead.  I say, “Too bad.”  It is because of his stunt with the vote on Obama care that I am paying a thousand dollars a month for my wife’s health insurance.

By the way, it did not start there.  The man should have gone to prison.  “Over what?” you might ask.  May I suggest you look up the ‘Keating five?’  All five clearly broke the law.  All five benefited from their office.  All five caused severe damage to several savings and loans and got away with it.  He clearly did not feel guilty about taking advantage of his position.  Also, he decided to use his fame to run for senator, and later for president,

Might I remind you that McCain was a constant thorn in candidate Trumps side, even after he won the Republican nomination?  Then, even after President Trump assumed office, he was still a constant source of problems for the president and, may I say our country.

Okay.  He was a hero.  He did serve in Vietnam.  Actually, so did I.  Okay.  He was captured and spent five years in captivity.  Again, he was not alone.  Indeed, many never returned from the war.  Many lost arms or legs.  Some lost their sight.  Some returned disfigured.  He was not the only one to suffer.  What’s more, many accomplished far more and under enemy fire.

Many of them never received the accolades that McCain did.  Some were not greeted by cheering and waving as they returned to civilian life.  Many of them deserved the cheers and were mocked instead.

Most important; the main point; the one thing that should be most considered is the man’s record as a senator.  He proved positive that not all war heroes make good politicians.  He certainly would not have been a good president and he was horrible at campaigning for the job.  He let Obama walk all over him.  It was as if he did it on purpose.  It was as if it was prearranged that Obama was supposed to win and he was to stand out of the way.

If I had the opportunity, I would have said this and more to his face and, without hesitation, I would say this to any of his survivors.  Something tells me, if they would be honest with themselves, I wouldn’t be telling them anything new.

“The New Green Deal?”

First, there is nothing new about communism.  It is as old as Marx, though it has been called by many different things.

Second, though it has been tried dozens of times, it has never succeeded.  I’m not saying it usually failed or even most of the time.  It has always failed.

Finally, it is a means to an end.  Vicious people have used it to gain control over people.  Stalin, might have been the first, but he was not the last.  In the name of the ideal society, he killed millions, many of them farmers.  Indeed, he killed more than Hitler.  History is full of people who promised the heaven and presented hell.  In each and every case, it has ended in a dictatorship where even thoughts are controlled.  What I say has been true 100% of the time.

In each case, those who rose to power climbed over the poor and abused.  A person would have to be blind to see that it is the same method they would like to use in the US.  Of course, they say they are different than the dictators.  Yet, they have no scruples.  They use lies, deception and trickery in every direction.  It is not to make things better for us, but rather to acquire power for them.  If they succeed, they will live in luxery while the rest of us suffer.  It is the pattern.  They don’t care about the poor and abused.  They are nothing more than tools.  When they have control, they will be worse off than before.  By the way, so will the rest of us.

“Let the Buyer Beware!”

Those who know me know that I am very much in favor of capitalism.  However, there are some who take advantage of capitalism for dishonest endeavors.  Whenever such things happen, the government ought to take reasonable measures to prevent such things.

By the way, such things are not new.  In the Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert & Sullivan, the pirate king claims that he is relatively honest.  He raises the skull and crossbones, and everyone knows what he and his men intend.  The businessman wears a business suit and robs people blind.  Moreover, those that are most likely to steal are those who are members of the bar association.

Well, today I received a letter from a dishonest business.  You may ask, “How do you know it is a dishonest business?”

To which, I say, it is simple.  On the letterhead, I saw “Medicare.com.”  It is an effort to deceive.  It was not from the government.  The Medicare website is Medicare.gov.  There was a disclaimer at the bottom of the letter.  I am sure they want everyone to read it.  On the other hand, if one out of a hundred doesn’t read it, the deception is successful.

For the most part, I did not read the letter.  I cannot tell you what it says.  However, I will tell you who it is from.  I will let you draw your own conclusion as to their honesty.  I will let you decide if you want to do business with them.  As for me, I will not give them the time of day.

They identify themselves as eHealthinsurance agency in New York and Oklahoma.  I would hope you will practice one capitalist saying, “Let the buyer beware.”

Pravda v Our Mainstream News Media

Pravda printed propaganda because the Soviet Union made them, more or less at the point of a gun.

The American mainstream media prints propaganda because they want to.

Other than that, I can’t see a whole lot of difference. They both bolster the benefits of socialism and rail the horrors of capitalism.  They both say how wonderful it is for one central government to run everything and the horrors of individual thought.

Remember these things:

1. Deceit does not always require a lie.  Sometimes an element of truth is more deceiving than the lie.

2. For those who like their welfare: Not everyone who gives you things is your friend.  Often, gifts are given with an element of control.  Those who give you bread today, seek to tell your children how to live, and think.  (Our forefathers gave us freedom.  Do you want to give your children bondage and tyranny.)

3. We ought to do that which is right, regardless of the penalty.  We ought not do that which is wrong, regardless of the reward.

To be sure, President Trump is trying to do that which saves lives and protects our freedom.  The dummycrats are doing all they can to stand in his way.  It is because of the open border that people seek to enter illegally, often costing their lives and freedom.  They are in favor of laws that act like magnets, such as welfare for all and college for illegal aliens that encourage their long and dangerous trek.  They make it almost impossible to send them back, which often endangers the lives of those who legally live here.  And, by the way, it also endangers the lives of those who live here illegally.

It is the dummycrats that offer free things, all the while sizing control of the government.  Once they control our government, the welfare will stop and the tyranny will begin.  It is the pattern.  It is the way it was in Russia.  It is the way it was in China.  It was what happened in Cuba and Venezuela.  Now people who live in these countries risk their lives to live here.  Once we become as they are, where do we go to seek freedom?  To what land do we go to to think as we want without the thought police looking over our shoulder.

You say it won’t happen here as it did there.  Have you taken a good look at our college campuses?  The liberals already rule those institutions, there ones that are supposed to encourage free thought.  The government is already telling us who we can do business with.  The thought police are right around the corner.  Soon they will tell us what we can or can’t preach in church.  For that matter, they just might try to do away with the churches altogether.

One world government is what the socialists seek.  It is what Karl Marx taught.  It was his ultimate goal.  It was to do away with war.  But when the government that rules the world is bad, what recourse do freedom lovers have?
