Mitt Romney…you can be the Republican nominee….if the price is right!!!!

Girl Scouts hundredth anniversary. We want girls to be strong...unless they disagree with us....

Because the Republican party isn’t making big enough fools of themselves, HBO is making a movie to remind us that Sarah Palin is inferior. The movie is called, Game Change. I really don’t know why the liberal media elite is wasting its time on the subject. Opinion of Sarah Palin notwithstanding, she’s not in the race. She’s not a threat to the Democrat party. The only reason to drag her under the mud now is either to just rub the oppositions nose in their failures, or simply to show HBO as the misogynistic hypocrites they really are.

But I digress.

The liberal media still gloats over the defeat of John McCain. And they think they can do it again with the Hollow Man, Mitt Romney, who they are trying to set up as the nominee so that Obama can have an easy win. Right now, it kind of looks like they may succeed. Which is one reason why I haven’t written in a while. Work has been crazy, and I’m kind of down on the whole world, right now.

Which is exactly the wrong attitude. Jesus wouldn’t let this stuff get Him down.

Right now, I’m still reading The Federalist Papers. Hamilton, in Federalist 8, is revealing the evils of a standing army.

This is absolutely an idea not embraced by either major political party. We’ve had a major standing army since WW II. It seems archaic to think of America without a standing army. I personally think that we live in times that necessitate standing armies. But I think we do need to consider what Hamilton says on the subject.

1. Standing armies tend to prop up the executive branch of government, often at the expense of the legislature and civil liberties.

They [standing armies] would, at the same time, be necessitated to strengthen the executive arm of government, in doing which their constitutions would acquire a progressive direction toward monarchy. It is the nature of war to increase the executive at the expense of the legislative authority.-Hamilton. Federalist 8.

Let’s face it. All of us were willing to give up some of our civil liberties, after 9/11, for a little security. But I wonder if we have gone to far? I wonder if the terrorists have ultimately won? I wonder if what they wanted all along was to take our liberties from us?

And what if 9/11 was just the excuse The Powers That Be needed in order to take complete control? My last major was psychology. I found a video on-line that is related. I warn you, it is a little slow. It’s just a college professor giving a boring lecture. But if you can deal with the tedium of it, it is very informative. Anyone that has read C. S. LewisThat Hideous Strength will be reminded of the strange combination of science, religion, military and state in that book.

Is America a police state? The role of psychiatry

2. Even before 1984, Hamilton was warning that the mantra of a police state would be, “War is peace!”

The perpetual menacing of danger oblige the government to be always prepared to repel, its armies must be numerous enough for instant defense.. The continual necessity for their services enhances the importance of the soldier, and proportionally degrades the condition of the citizen. The inhabitants of territories, often the theater of war, are unavoidably subjected to the frequent infringements of their rights; which serve to weaken their sense of those rights, and by degrees the people are brought to consider the soldiery not only as their protectors but as their superiors.-Hamilton. Federalist 8

If you need a perfect example of the above statement, just do some research on feudal Japan. The Samarai were the ruling class. And they were the warrior class. (And sometimes, I almost think they were right…..but I digress again…..)

I cannot exactly prove that the government has set up this state of perpetual war, but I found a video that i think is very intriguing in its implications.

Green light to attack Kuait revealed by Ron Paul

PLEASE DO NOT GET ME WRONG! I am absolutely pro-military. I know too many veterans. The best people I know have either seen war, or, at least, have served their country honorably. But I am absolutely against a police state. Twenty years ago, I could never have imagined that things would get this bad, without me firing a shot, or at least doing something drastic in order to change the state of things. But I’m afraid that I am spineless. All I do is “lift things up and put them down!”

And type on my little blog.

Ain’t it funny how many hundreds of thousand of soldiers we can recruit with nerve. But we can’t find one politician in a million with backbone.-Will Rogers, Feb. 18, 1929.

Do you like living in the Matrix…..? I know I do!!!! Why Big Brother is so proud of America

Andrew Breitbart died today. He was only 43. That’s just three years older than yours truly. And on the way home from work today, I nearly had a terrible car accident. It just shows us how fragile life is. I was listening to Rush Limbaugh in my car while driving between the stores that I work at, and that was the first that I heard about it. I didn’t know that much about Breitbart (which shows how Aristotle was right….retail, at any rate, kind of makes it difficult to keep up with the times….).  I guess he was behind the famous expose’ of ACORN. You know, the famous revelation that they were giving out “tax advice” to illegal aliens, pimps, and prostitutes (“pb” doesn’t stand for pimp basher….).

I could tell that Rush was actually hurt over the loss of his friend. I know the pain of losing friends and family. Right now, I share with all of you the agony of losing my liberty.

There’s an excellent book, frighteningly relevant to our times. It’s called 1984. It has several topics in it that are relevant to lovers of liberty, but the one I want to deal with today is a lovely little concept called doublethink. This word is defined as “the power to hold two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and excepting both of them.” (Definition from Orwelltoday.com.) You can find examples of this all over the place, but I find that politics, namely big government and big corporation politics, is rife with this disease. (Michael Savage says that “liberalism is a mental disorders.” I think that the disorder has another name, and runs deeper than politics….)

Take, for example, the idea that we go to Afghanistan and Iraq in order to fight terrorism. All this while, we’re fighting a war on drugs. Yet we guard opium fields, talk to the Taliban…..and fail to see the mental disconnect. Its doublethink. It will ensure the victory of the Party. It will keep us enslaved.

In The Matrix, Neo is offered a pill that will open his mind, and one that will empty his mind of the memory of the new, real world that he is seeing for the first time. (Yeah, I know…..it might seem that they are promoting drugs….maybe they are! This is Hollywood we’re talking about…I am absolutely against drug use, but the point is still to be made). This would not work on most of the American people today. They would take the pill, and see no problem at all with living the lie that they have always lived. Cypher need never have betrayed Neo! If he’d simply engaged in doublethink, he could have continued to eat delicious, tender, juicy, imaginary stake all of his life.

Agent Smith was wrong! “One of these lives has a future, and one of them does not!” He was so wrong! With just a little application of doublethink, Neo could have continued to take out his imaginary neighbor’s garbage, all the while knowing that he was living a lie! And not giving a flying flip about the lie!

This is exactly and precisely where the American people are enslaving themselves. While the American revolution happened in the hearts and minds of the American people before any shots were fired, the enslavement of America is happening in exactly the same place!

And as Super Tuesday looms closer, and the American people continue to vote for the Puppet Romney and the fake Santorum, I begin to despair of waking the American people up! No, it isn’t just that I reach so few people. I fully understand that I am but a still, small voice being drowned out by the cyclonic winds that buffet all of our lives. But there are other voices….millions of voices. Better voices than mine. And these voices are simply being ignored because those in power have set up a matrix of their own, in which they are insulated from our cries for freedom. Longshanks never heard William Wallace cry….until the end of the movie, when it was too late to change anything.

But this is no movie. We can’t just reset this. We can’t just rewind it or watch our lives again. This game is for real, and we’re playing for keeps. You don’t want to vote Ron Paul. Fine. But please, wake up. Be Real. Be Alive. Be the Being that God (I hope the atheist readers forgive me….I know some atheists read this, and they are not bad people….I’m just ranting with what is in my gut) intended you to be! Get off your duffs, turn off the t. v….! And for the love of Pete, start using your minds, instead of letting corporate America do it for you!!!! And may Breitbart rest in peace.
