Bourgeois and Proud of It

March 31, 2016 AD

An old man on a sleepless night delves into the many wonderful benefits of communism, said by our president to be as good a choice as capitalism for an economic system. After a middle-of-the-night awakening, it’s a glass of water and firing up this blog, thinking on the philosophical dilemma of America at this crucial time in her history.

So it is I pull up an online copy of the Communist Manifesto, the work of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.

Marx and Engels were big on dividing societies between workers (Proletariat) and business owners (Bourgeois). Our president would never use such terms, else he would be clearly known to all.

What’s the difference between these two classes of people, according to the authors of the Communist Manifesto?

  • The proletariat are wage earners, hourly employees or contract labor
  • The bourgeois are the business owners, the employers who pay wages to the proletariat

I suppose the irony was lost to Marx and Engels: without the Bourgeoisie, the proletariat would be unemployed, out of work, hungry and homeless.

The fundamental idea underlying the theory of communism is the bourgeoisie are inherently evil because they build their wealth off the labor of the proletariat. That’s true to a degree, but is it not also true a bourgeois first labors to develop a business idea and discovers how to finance his or her enterprise before hiring the proletariat?

I retired from the corporate world almost 30 years ago to start my business here in the smallest of 254 Texas counties. For the first year or more I was the entrepreneur, salesman, engineer, logistics person, book keeper, accounts receivable, accounts payable, customer trainer and after market service technician. It was AFTER this bourgeois sold enough business and accumulated enough capital that employees were hired.

Regardless the realities of free-market capitalism, communists theorize that elimination of the hated bourgeoisie levels the playing field and

He dismisses the notion that communist would take away your private property. Really, Barack? You were born to communists, raised by communists and mentored by a communist. You know darn well the differences between communism, socialism and free-market capitalism.

  • Capitalism – You have the right to private property and to enjoy the fruits from that property (as in the Declaration of Independence phrase “the pursuit of happiness”)
  • Socialism – Yes, you own private property, but the state dictates how you will use your property.
  • Communism – You have no right to private property. The state owns all property and it allows you to use some of its property. Maybe.

This 2016 election year. This great ideological divide between Democrats on the left and Republicans on the right have me sleepless this night. This graphic summarizes visually what’s happening to my fellow Americans at this point in our history.

Republican-vs-Democrat-Capitalism-vs-Communism-graphic
Presidential politics all boils down to the above. Brain-dead college students clamor after Bernie and Hillary, while “evil” bourgeois business owners like me look for some salvation, some hope from the GOP candidates. And therein is the dilemma.

I see Bernie Sanders as full-blown communist, Hillary Clinton as a socialist-communist, Donald Trump as a capitalist-socialist and Ted Cruz as a full-blown capitalist. Imagine America, if any but Cruz get the job.

I am bourgeois and proud of it. I’ll be voting for Ted Cruz to be our next President of the United States of America, the last bastion of freedom on the face of the earth. At least for now.

Back to bed with my sleepy head.

The Right Man at the Right Time

Rockwall County – home to history and mystery. Before Anglo settlers set foot here rival Indian tribes fought one another to hold claim to this extraordinary patch of Texas soil. Arrow heads estimated to be over 1,500 years old have been found, along with a rock wall around the area from which the county gets its name. One amateur anthropologist theorized an ancient civilization near the present-day city of Rockwall. He noted there are three elements suggesting such a possibility: high ground, surrounded by a rock wall and a nearby source of water, the East Fork of the Trinity River now impounded as the Ray Hubbard Reservoir.

While our county is the smallest of 254 Texas counties, our people have impacted the entire state. Our tiny county in early Texas history was the “panhandle” of much larger Kaufman County. In spite of our diminutive size, candidates for public office make Rockwall a first stop in political races. One reason for Rockwall’s influence is the quality of the people; a second is the fact ours is the wealthiest county in Texas, according to the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.

Our history of state leadership dates back to 19th Legislature of 1885.

historical record of Rockwall County House representation - condensed
Two candidates vie for the HD-33 seat in the Texas House of Representatives. One moved here from California, the other claims several generations of Texas heritage.

One is effective unemployed, the other is a business owner serving the people of Collin County and Rockwall County.

The two are pro-life and professing, church-going Christians. Both serve on city council in their respective cities. Each contributes to community service. So, what’s the difference?

The defining difference is what they can do for the people of our district. Justin does all his opponent does while also operating a dynamic business.

Let’s elect the man who will fight for us, for our children and for our property rights.

My vote goes to Justin Holland to be our next representative in the Texas House.

If you voted in the GOP primary election, mark your calendar for the May 24, 2016 runoff election. Let’s elect Justin, just in time.

I am the GOP and I steal nothing from Trump

March 29, 2016 AD

Article this morning from Infowars.com claims, THE REPUBLICANS ARE ALREADY STEALING THE NOMINATION FROM TRUMP.

Can we talk?

The GOP is no monolithic political machine. If anything, our problem is we are a party of individuals who more often than not tend to be our own worst enemy. Voter Vault classifies me as a “Hard Republican”, not to be confused with a  hard body. We infamously form circular firing squads as we shoot at one another.

Ours is the party that subscribes to and adheres to the rule of law. This is the chief difference between Republicans and nihilistic Democrats.

No one can steal the election from Donald Trump. It’s his to lose. If you continue to believe in him, your moment of revelation cannot be far off. Consider Trump campaign strategist Stephanie Cegielski who experienced an epiphany, a wake up call.

Trump made me believe. Until I woke up…I consider myself a part of the silent majority that led to Trump’s rise, which is why I want you to know that I am with you — I wanted Trump to be real, too. He is not.

I excerpt the above from Stephanie’s blog XOJane.

An Open Letter to Trump Voters from His Top Strategist-Turned-Defector

Americans are angry with federal government. We are angry over ObamaCare. We are angry over the president’s anti-Christian, pro-Muslim, love affair with socialism. We are angry the way national debt has more than doubled in fewer than eight years. We are angry over government abuses like the IRS targeting conservatives to silence us.

Donald Trump is angry, too. His populist rants and attacks on “establishment” politicians captured the hearts of my fellow Americans, Democrats and Republicans alike. He’s right about some of our problems, but he has absolutely no viable solutions to any of them. None.

The masters of conspiracies at Infowars.com continue to deny facts in evidence as they go forward with their virtual world of pseudo political science.

I am but one old man. A ‘hard Republican’ who arises early, goes about his business, loves his grandchildren more than life itself and I am a Republican because the GOP, despite our human failings, generally reveres the Constitution and adheres to the Rule of Law, two factors essential to preserving liberty for all Americans.

I wasn’t born a Republican. I was a Democrat that supported the election of Jimmy Carter and I it was Jimmy Carter that turned me to the Republican Party. What is the Republican Party? It’s a bunch of God-fearing, flag-waving Americans like little ole me. That’s why I can say, I am the GOP.

My epiphany came shortly after Carter assumed office as President. I hope yours comes before November.

upon the look you can see that at this rate going just with the reported

incidence of suppression assault and intimidation is going to take longer
3:33
than fidel castro speech but it is interesting isn’t it how the left will
3:38
disrupt a peaceful expression of differing opinions with violence and
3:41
then accused of people holding those different opinions of starting the whole
3:45
thing basically if you want to understand the modern left it’s pretty

2016 Elections – A Time of Choosing Between Tyranny and Liberty

March 26, 2016 The Year of Our Lord

capitalism-socialism-mixed-economy-18-728

Two days ago. Only two days ago, the president of the United States of America tells his youthful audience in Argentina there has been a “a sharp division in the past between left and right, between capitalist (waving his hand to his right) and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate.”

In his own words…


He dismisses facts of history and facts of practical experience in the Americas of persons who have actually lived in a free society (capitalist), quasi-socialist societies and full-blown communist-socialist countries.

The very soil upon which he stood as he made the above speech saw a horrible period of tyrannical socialist government that made approximately 30,000 its political enemies disappear. A PBS film titled, OUR DISAPPEARED \ NUESTROS DESAPARECIDOS, documents that horrific failure of tyrannical totalitarian government, a blend of crony capitalism and socialism.

Our president prescribes some blend of capitalism and socialism? Is he ignorant of the history of Argentina where this was the model of government? A term for his prescription is “crony capitalism”. What is crony capitalism? Prager U produced the following educational video (5:03) that succinctly describes the basics – as it is practiced today in the United States of America.

Pope Francis was born and raised under full-blown crony capitalism and this is why he stated his opposition to capitalism. Yes, the Pope only knows crony capitalism. Left unchecked, crony capitalism inevitably ends in a totalitarian state. The United States of America is heading toward that end at an astonishing pace.

If what I say is true, where is the tyranny, you ask. I take you back to 2008 when Barack Obama called for a “civilian national security force” equal to our military force. Hear him state his goal in the following video (0:20).

Are we headed toward tyrannical, dictatorial government that is a blend of capitalism and socialism and communism? Think of the all-powerful, heavily-armed alphabet-soup federal agencies rising in strength day by day: DEA, EPA, IRS, DOE, BLM, DHS, TSA, etc., agencies that bypass constitutional due process on a daily basis. Is not the answer a resounding yes?

Free-market capitalism is a natural economic system of exchange of goods and services between independent agents.

Socialism shall forever remain an economic theory. Why? Because it has. Never. Been. Proven. It remains the goal of Utopian leftist theorists like Barack Hussein Obama, the community organizer.

In this 2016 election cycle, we shall either return to true free-market capitalism upon which we built the greatest, most prosperous nation in the history of the world, or we shall face a similar fate of those Latin American countries that succumbed to the siren’s seduction to choose “what works”? A free society only works 100% of the time it is tried.

Do Mexican Residents of USA Truly Want Mexican “Democracy”?

March 21, 2016 AD

Bloomberg headline: Stop Trump Movement Gets Boost From Mexico’s Efforts in U.S.

stop trump movement gets boost from mexicos efforts in us

Mexico is mounting an unprecedented effort to turn its permanent residents in the U.S. into citizens, a status that would enable them to vote — presumably against Donald Trump.

Officially, Mexico says it respects U.S. sovereignty and has no strategy to influence the result of the presidential race. Yet Mexican diplomats are mobilizing for the first time to assist immigrants in gaining U.S. citizenship, hosting free workshops on naturalization.

Read the full story: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-03-20/stop-trump-movement-gets-boost-from-mexico-s-efforts-in-u-s

Out of one side of the official Mexican mouth, the Mexican government says it “respects U.S. sovereignty and has no strategy to influence the result of the presidential race”, but out of the other side of the official Mexican mouth the Mexican government directly interferes in our elections. Shall I assume we now have an open door to interfere in their elections?

A Personal Word to Mexican Residents in the USA

Think about the corruption in Mexican government that motivated you to move here. (Piense acerca de la corrupción en el gobierno mexicano que motivó a usted a venir a vivir aquí.)

Mexican government is roughly the equivalent to U.S. government under control of the Democrat Party. (El gobierno de México es aproximadamente el equivalente al gobierno estadounidense bajo el control del Partido Demócrata.) Do I speak the truth? (No digo la verdad?)

The bottom line is simply this: If you want Mexican style government along with all the corruption, then vote for Democrats. If you want American style government, then vote Republicans. (La conclusión es simplemente esto: Si quieres gobierno al estilo mexicano, junto con toda la corrupción, y luego votar por los demócratas. Si deseas gobierno al estilo americano, luego votar por los republicanos.)

Move over Che – Obama’s the new poster in Cuba

March 18, 2016

move over che - obama is the new poster in town.png
Ah! Such memories of the promises of “hope and change” dating back to 2008 general elections when Barack Obama promoted his Utopian vision of the new Christian-free, pro-Muslim America. The photograph below was an inside look at Obama’s 2008 Houston campaign office.

obama-che-cuban-flag

His association with communists isn’t news. He was born to communist parents, mentored by a communist, Frank Marshall Davis, about whom he wrote in his book Dreams from my Father, as being a decisive influence in helping him to find his present identity as an African-American.

For many years communist Soviet Union financially underwrote the Castrista communist government. In between the collapse of the USSR and the rise of a communist-socialist Venezuelan government was a terrible time of famine and misery Cubans refer to as “the special period”. Seventeen years ago Venezuela became Castro’s new “sugar daddy”.

What possible outcome to socialism? Utopian socialist dreams predictably become dystopian  failed societal failures, as has happened in Venezuela.

Readers and friends ask me, “Why does Obama now go to the aid of the Castros?” My blog of December 25, 2014 provides the answer.elan Connection – Obama’s Cuban-Venezuelan Connection – Why He Ends the Cuban Embargo: my opinion.

The fact Barack Obama has become the ‘poster child’ of Cuban socialism, the savior of ‘La Revolución’, validates my opinion of over one year ago.
