Big Government Liberals, statists, progressives, and almost any of the ideologies on the Big Government Left deals in collective terms. In the enlightened and the groups of ideology, and the herd, the dumb people, the people who just do not know better and cannot take care of themselves anyways.

Ideas expressed from Margret Sanger and Edward Bernays to most of our current crop of politicians and academia.

Now, in dealing on individual terms, they do have a point. We all have a little bit of animal in us.

But because of our sentience, because of that divine spark, because of our humanity…or what have you, we can rise past that. We can be higher selves that is capable of doing…great things on many levels. And bad things.

To even sacrifice ourselves for our cause and our agenda, what ever that has to be.

Its like the story that I mentioned in Becoming a Crusader, about us being slaves to our hormones and our instincts.

Well just imagine if we could rise past our instincts, and our hormones, imagine if we can move past our base animal instincts and create a better world and one of freedom and dignity? awesomeness baby!

Because if you treat people like animals, if you treat people like dirt…except for the few college ‘educated’ people that you can ‘save’….then they will act like it. If you divide everyone into their own groups and have one group that is smarter and wiser, well sometimes people believe the negative rhetoric.

If you divide all people into the ‘educated’ and the ‘herd’ the ‘enlightened’ and the ‘unenlightened’ the ranchers and the herd then that is what you will get out of people.

You will get people who do believe in these artificial groups, which may lead to a bigotry hitherto unseen in human history, bigotry based on intelligence. My educated group versus your ignorance.

And you will get people who will believe this. Besides it is easier to act like an animals sometimes. Living by desire and temptation alone, living by getting fed and coddled by our ‘betters’.

But on the other hand if you treat people like divinely gifted humans and with respect and dignity, you may in the end get a better result.

“All great change in America begins at the dinner table.” — Ronald Reagan

Something has been bugging me for a while now that I think the above quote by Ronald Reagan explains it.  In this quote Ronald Reagan is talking about politics, how children, or their parents, must get down at the dinner table and talk about relevant issues of the day.

Now, in today’s worlds you have the Progressives, the Liberals, the Socialists, the Statists, and the big Government types trying to make the world a more complicated place.  To confuse and divide the issue.  This might be intentional, or merely a natural by-product from an ever-growing and more insane Government.

Now often, in regards to spending and the economy, radio host Glenn Beck asks does this make sense to you?  Would you do this for your own family?

That is more the point of this blog.

Because in an ever-growing, ever complicated world, we need simplicity in our lives.  In all the moral, political, or philosophical debates that you can have, my goal is to constantly make things simple.  In a world that is more complicated simplicity is what is required.

And I have found the answer.

In order to make things more simple we have to ask what is the best for me?  What would I do?  What would be best for my family and my group?

This can explain everything from Macro Economics, to issues of foreign and international war.  Because it is easy to get lost in the muck and the mire and get confused.  Simply if it works for me, my life, and my family, then why can’t it work for Governments and political institutions?

There are two examples that make this point.

One is the market, the economies.  You only have a set income, no more, no less, to spend on your luxury items and the things you ‘need’ and then one makes choices.

Our Government’s solution is to just keep on spending money, beyond what the tax payers, their income, can provide, beyond what they can make on their own, raising the debt.

But if you did the same, took out and spent thousands upon thousands of dollars for PS3s, a New Car, an RV, and a Big Screen TV, what would be the result?  What would happen to you? Would that be the moral and right thing to do?  Would you even attempt it? How would you do it?  Would you borrow money?  What would be the consequences of these actions?

Then with the Israeli situation, the Israeli intercepting the ‘aid’ flotilla’s’.  Now people have said, well they were in international waters, well the Israeli’s did not have the authority to come and take those ships, that it was an illegal blockade.

All that may be true, and it is easy to get lost in the legality and the complexity of international politics, and if you pay attention at the least the blockade was not illegal.  But that is beside the point.

Imagine if someone was coming up to your house, mysterious package, maybe yelling insults and carrying a pipe?   What would you do in that situation?

Better yet, this is assuming that the person in question is outside their jurisdiction, and you are a peaceful person.  Imagine that you are being pulled over by a cop, you see that its markings are for the next question, but he comes over and says, ma’am, you have been speeding.  What would you do?  Would you pull out a pipe and beat the cop to death who may or may not be there legally, or would you be cooperative, and be peaceful to the officer?  What would you do?  Would you resist?  Or would you say sorry officer, it will not happen again.  All of this presupposes that you have the best intentions and are a peaceful person.

Then it starts at home.  Because once you start asking yourself, how would I react in this situation, what would I do for my own life and my family, then you can know how to react, then you will know what to do, then you will know the proper action to take.

Because it does start at home, if you can teach the proper morality and the proper way to react, then you can begin to fix things.  By teaching proper principles.

Mission Creep:  Its one of the most destructive ideas known to Modern Government.  It has been what has taken a simple health care plan and turned it into a boondoggle, what transforms small governments into large ones, and what has turned a card used to get benefits that you ‘deserve’ at the end of your retirement into one that is used for almost everything in this country.

It is what takes away our rights, slowly and surely, after the paradigm changes, and then they come out in great leaps and bounds, taking more of our rights away, and then slowly, surely, coming up with new ways to add onto what they have done.

Liberals and Progressives, over the last century or so, have done this.

We keep on ‘defeating’ them, but their legacies remain.  The fed, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the expansion of some of these programs.  And then the UN.

Each time, we fight, we shout out in one loud voice, we defeat them in part, and drive them back.

But they ram more things down us, things to keep us busy, just things, and unjust things.  Whether it is war, economic woes, jobs, or immigration.  And then we get used to it.

Ronald Regan once said:

No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth!

This strikes to the heart of the matter.  For no matter what, even if we defeat them, their programs tend to last long after they are dead.

And we cannot fight them because we have, in the past, always gone back to bed until they try it again and the next wave of corruption and take over of liberty begins.

Then we wake up, and fight, but it gets through anyways, and then we get distracted, and then used to it.

At least this is the way it has been in the past.

Enough I say.

We need to make a stand, and then we need to restore the Republic, to regain our rights and our liberties from this Government.

Examining everything, and questioning with boldness.

First we need to defeat them and their legislation, and then we need to start repealing and pushing back on it.

And we must not let something pass, something that is good, and whole, and pure.  We must not let it pass with a greater evil.  For if it is good it can stand up on its own without being thrown in the muck.  And if it if being passed apart of corrupt legislation with corrupt politicians then the whole thing must be suspect.

If they pass a carrot then we must repeal that too, the whole thing, and then we can start over and having the debate on just what is good for this country.
