The Global Outrage of an Educated Man................Vol.79
The Autumnal call of the World Series has ended, and with it, has brought the sounds of College Football, and the NFL once again has meaning.
The Autumnal call has also brought with it, Barry Goldwater's The Conscience of a Conservative. I read it as an appeasement, and for the age old adage, "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer." That's why I watch Fox News.
But seriously, He asks the question, "Are we maximizing Freedom?" No. Are we allowing State's rights to govern themselves? No.
Barry Goldwater suggested that corporations and unions should not be allowed to contribute to political campaigns.
It is no more evident than our current Political atmosphere where half a billion dollars is needed to get your viewpoint expressed.
I agree with him on this, and I also agree with him that we as a country and as a people should abolish the graduated income taxes, and instead have a flat tax rate, equal for all.
However, I also believe that if you are a Goldwater conservative, who believes in the true and unfettered freedom that all men and women inherit and posses and that the Federal Government should stay as far away as possible from our personal lives and our right to privacy, then a woman's right to be Pro-Choice would ultimately be a conservative stance. Would it not?
I will leave you to ponder that.
Now, let me focus my attention on the recent ads against Al Franken. If I understand them correctly, Al Franken "humiliates minorities, believes child abuse to be a joke, writes pornography, demeans women and laughs at the disabled." The only thing they leave out is that "he drowns puppies in garbage cans filled with dirty water."
Wow. Good thing Norm Coleman went positive.
Maybe we all should have the knowledge like Michelle Bachmann that we "are right in our hearts", and "embrace Freedom and Liberty".
If you could get more generalized than that, let me know.
Which leads me finally to Barack Obama's Wednesday the 29th of October 2008, 30 minute propagandadvertisement on three major networks. How do you compete with that?
I mean, I'm voting for the man, but honestly, have not the powers that be and the unseen hands already placed the mantle upon his head?
And 4 years ago, nobody knew his name and he was a junior senator from Illinois that simply gave one of the best speeches at the 2004 Democratic Convention in Boston.
I just hope he delivers on what he has been promising, because if I remember correctly, George H. W. Bush, in 1988 said "No new taxes." And what did he do? Raise taxes.
No wonder William Jefferson Clinton is such a good friend of his.
Oh how we are fooled into believing that there is a difference between the two parties.
Freedom is a choice between the lesser of two evils once every 4 years. But then again, maybe I'm too cynical?
Maybe we only have a little over three years left until a shift in cosmic consciousness comes along to change us for the better? Or worse? December 22, 2012.
I will state it again, that if I'm wrong I will be the first to admit it.
However, you'll have to admit that we are inching ever closer to a one world economy and a one world government would you not?
The Global Economic crisis is necessary for the tip toe to totalitarianism. We've already begun socializing our financial institutions.
They don't just let things happen without a reason. The ends justify their means. 9/11?? Bam. The Patriot Act. War on Terror?? A War that will never end.
Just keep on keepin on, and trying to pay the bills.
"Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage."
So get out and vote. That's entertainment.
