Bring it in – take a knee.
Meach, stop fidgeting like your Ritalin has not kicked in. Someone find Chop, last I saw him, he was at the Veteran’s Cemetery with his shotgun and a bottle of Papa’s Pilar, guarding the Confederate headstones.
I am gonna just come out and say this. I AM A LIBERAL. Before you get your silkies in a wad, let me explain. I am not a liberal like Bernie or Hillary. Nor am I a conservative like Gowdy and West. Along the same lines – I am not a RINO like McCain or a wildcard like the POTUS.
I am a CLASSIC liberal. I believe in the Republic, as defined in the Constitution, as an entity made to serve WE THE PEOPLE. I believe in LIBERTY – REAL Liberty that is only delineated by where the next person’s liberty begins. I believe in the rule of law – but that law should only be written and enforced when necessary. I think government should be manifested as small and at the lowest level possible.
The outmoded and wholly incorrect usage of the political spectrum that is taught to you and that your children are indoctrinated to is a farce that is meant to divide us. It is meant to paint anyone to the “right” of JFK as a heartless capitalist Nazi. I submit to you that this chart displaying the political spectrum, considered to be the “standard” and from which the media, our “leadership,” academics and your friends draw their conclusions about politics is criminally wrong and damaging to who we are and how we see ourselves.
The fact is that Nazis (derived from the acronym for the National Socialist Worker’s Party in Germany) are very close in ideology to other Socialists – including so called “Democratic Socialists.” Indeed, they are only a short hop from Communists.
The problem comes in when we fail to teach the horrors of communism and its more palatable socialist brother. The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics purged, murdered, disappeared, and starved FAR more people than the Nazis did – but they weren’t as direct and efficient as the Germans.
Take a look at the chart below and try to see where you stand according to how much government control of your life you want. Remember that security – whether physical, social, or economic – has a price. That price is Liberty.
So let us have a real and honest discussion about motivation, control and where our “two party system” sits right now. From my POV the Democrats and Republicans sit side by side on this chart, and most are as corrupt as the next, not really caring about anything but making money, and staying in power.
Do we think that our body politic really cares about what happened in Charlottesville? Hell no – all they care about is pandering to their base to get re-elected. Do they care about “Universal Healthcare” one way or another? NO – they have the very best healthcare that your tax dollars can by – FOR LIFE. Do they give one good American shit about your education? No brothers and sisters – they care about keeping your ignorant asses fighting a war that ended in 1865 and in which the people that fought it reconciled with each other as early as 1898 when they went to war against Spain – all of them WEARING U.S. BLUE UNIFORMS.
The list can go on, but it is Friday, and you degenerates just want to watch the burned out old Boxer fight the Bantam rooster from Ireland, drink beer, and chase pussy. Just think about it and talk about it some. Forget – for just a little while – about race, religion, and all of the shit that they use to keep us from really understanding what is going on. Think about how much you talk about “Liberty” and how much you are willing to sacrifice for your “Security.”
Roll in Fire Teams.
Don’t drive drunk.
Do not kill. Do not rape. Do not steal. These are principles, which every man of every faith can embrace.
Don’t beat your dog or your wife.
For the god’s sake – stay the hell away from protests of ANY kind.
See you at 0600 on Monday for PT.
Now GTFO before I smoke the lot of ya.
