The reelection of President Obama is a great tragedy for millions and millions of working and middle class Americans, whose lives will be further ravaged by the Obama Inflation in consumer goods, while many assets will continue to depress: the old Stagflation of the Carter years only greater in magnitude. The poor President has no idea of Economics, and approaches everything from a Collectivist ideology, instead of the Classical Liberalism that was the best of Olde England, and which was transplanted to America by Jefferson and a few of his cohorts. Economics must be approached from the standpoint of Human Rights or Natural Rights, and Jefferson said we have a Inalienable Right to Pursue Happiness, which, in all previous documents of its kind, had read “Right to Property” (i.e. ‘ a Right to Life, Liberty, and Property”). So, when the President engages in his wealth extortion from Individual Citizens, which he transfers to three groups: the welfare recipients, the corporate wealthy who back him (i.e. Solyndra and Obama’s Senate vote for the bank bailout bill), and the government workers and bureaucrats who now average $100k a year plus healthcare plus pension all sucked out of the private sector, — when he caters to these three groups, he is violating those very Rights to which Jefferson said we have an inalienable Right. This is Communism in action, though it may be called Socialism, Social Democracy, National Socialism (Nazism), or Liberal American Democracy. They’re all at heart Communism, which might have seemed justifiable in the pre-Industrial age, prior to the Industrial Revolution, or even at the end of that Revolution, when wealth disparity appeared so large. But now we are in an age when technology and robots could, with a free power source like solar, produce huge amounts of consumer goods for very little labor or imput from the final recipients of those commodities. What keeps the mass of men poor is Socialism of the Democrat’s Obama kind with its associated constant inflation, as well as the Bush Republican-spendthrift kind. Contrarywise, if we had a radically free-market Capitalism with very low taxes and no income or estate taxes to kill initiative, then that Capitalism would produce enough wealth to satisfy anyone who could find a useful and interesting niche in a society that would constantly evolve new demands for labor services and physical products. With no income tax to dampen donations, effective charities staffed by dedicated workers could care for the completely disabled instead of the callous and horrendous government welfare bureaucracies.
It’s the ignorance and stupidity of most of the population on Economics and Political Science that is the real tragedy in America, and this last election shows that it will be only after yet another economic catastrophe that an ignorant populace will wake up and sober and there can be any hope of change in America. The fact that women and young people overwhelmingly voted for Obama shows that Democracy is out of control in America, and no matter how logically the economic arguments are presented to the people, those key Socialist groups who keep persistently voting in a “Liberal”, and will continue to immorally overlook his drone murders of children in Pakistan and Afghanistan and the NDAA overthrow of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, because Obama fulfills their own particular “Liberal” group’s demands on one particular issue. Liberalism used to be associated with deep Morality. No longer.
The only silver lining in this is that Governor Romney didn’t win. In many ways he might have been a far worse Fascist than Obama will be, but economically for most Americans he probably would have been less harmful. Judging which of two fatal diseases will kill you first is hard.
The great tragedy of this election is that Gary Johnson, and/or Ron Paul did not get elected. They had the Philosophy that this country desperately needs, like a dying man in the Mojave needs a jigger of water. They were the apostles of free-market Capitalism, Ron Paul more pure in his Libertarian Philosophy, Gary Johnson more sane on foreign policy. Both would have made superlative Presidents, instead of the two Mediocrities that were picked for the public to fight over. What a waste of time and money these two Politicians have engendered, never dealing with one real issue, while Paul’s and Johnson’s speeches would usually touch on a dozen.
The American Public will learn in the next four years that Stagflation is not just a dead buck that has been lying in the hot forest for three days, and that the stink is far worse. They voted for Middle Class Poverty and they will get it.
And perhaps the putrid Republican Party, that treated its most forward looking apostle, Ron Paul, like a pariah, will learn the lesson that it cannot win the Presidency without the Libertarians. Governor Gary Johnson received over 1 million votes, and though we haven’t seen the final totals on the Presidentical race, we’d bet his votes would have put George Romney’s son over the top in at least the popular vote, further showing what a joke is the claim that America is a “democratic” state. Indeed, Obama was put in power once again by about one-quarter of the American eligible voters. That’s what they call “Democracy” and name their party after.
Silverwolf is sorry America will experience such dire economic straits during the next four years, thanks to the re-election of Obama and the Senate Democrats, but there are consequences to actions. Perhaps the reaction to the suffering that the voters who didn’t vote for Ron Paul or Gary Johnson, or who didn’t even bother to vote at all, letting the Fascists just dance into office unmolested, — perhaps that reaction in four years time will finally propel a Libertarian, Bill of Rights, Free-Market, Individual Laissez-Faire Capitalist into the White House, and America can finally, after 250 years, start to be the Free, prosperous society it could be under Individualist Capitalism and the U.S. Constitution. Until the next election, the people will have to rot and putrify in the cesspool of the Democrats instead of the cesspool of the Republicans.
The once-great America — R.I.P.
