Now that President Obama and his Liberal Democrats have been ruling for a year and a half, the American public can see into what an absolute mess those who voted for Obama, and those who did not vote, have plunged this Republic. They have imposed their agenda of Liberalism, a false, unsound, and economically unworkable organized religion, on the American people, just as their European and Australian counterparts have done, and the inherent economic sense of the Yankee is finally awakening to their utter inability to deal with the economic problems of which they themselves are the cause. It is truly pathetic to see such a great nation led by such a bunch of incompetents and Mafia tricksters, out to loot the treasury and the hard-working individual taxpayer, in the interests of the corporations they work for. All the lies and obfuscations told by the President during the campaign(and often pointed out by Ms. Rodham’s supporters) were overlooked in the euphoria of his victory, as Liberals high-fived each other on their “finally” getting someone “good” in the White House. Eighteen months later the native intelligence of the American people can judge how “good”, and how correct the perennial Liberal Democrats were.
It is interesting to contrast how many grievous problems now exist in America thanks to the Liberal Democrats who voted for Obama versus how many of these problems would not exist if Ron Paul or a Libertarian had been elected President.
For one thing, the rule of Habeas Corpus would have been re-instated after Bush and Obama and their Congresses have destroyed it. Ron Paul would have restored this Civil Liberty to the People, but Democratic voters, and the people who couldn’t be bothered to vote, shot down that “radical” idea. Now we have that cornerstone of Fascism continued under Obama, thanks to his Democratic Party supporters, but of course, since they hate individual liberty (witness their Fascist support for jailing people for cannabis possession, and the income tax), that is no surprise. And, of course, not a squeak of protest from the “very Liberal” Democrats in Congress. I haven’t seen any of them sitting in at the President’s Office, or demanding the re-instatement of Habeas Corpus as a pre-condition for their continued support for Democratic Party Bills. Not a squeak.
And where are all those Peace Demonstrators screaming “Bush Murderer” now? Quiet as the churchmice they are. And closing Gitmo? Oh, please don’t bring up that minor issue. Prosecuting the waterboarders? Forgive and forget.
So once again, thanks to the Democratic Liberals, we still have the massive loss of lives and treasure in Afghanistan, now Obama-Rodham’s War. This callous Warmonger, and his Democratic Party supporters, continue to murder Afghan civilians, and get young Americans killed and maimed, while he strolls around playing golf, in the best Republican tradition. How many Afghan children, oh Liberal Democrats, has your individual vote for Obama killed so far? Does it bother you?
But let’s move on to that “minor” issue of 29 dead coal miners. Now, almost a year into the Obama’s so-called Administration of America, we have coal miners being exposed to dozens and dozens of safety violations that are punished solely by fine. No jail time for repeatedly endangering the lives of other human beings. (Contrast this to the way State laws treat the repeat drunk driver.) And the “solution” for Obama is to place a union representative in a government position. And of course, several months after the easily preventable tragedy, the issue is virtually completely forgotten, except for the grieving relatives who will have to live with the Administration’s inability to protect the lives of miners, even after being in power for a year, and with several months to prepare to take office.
Now, let’s look at how Libertarianism would handle this situation. First off, a mine owner would have to certify to anyone he contracted to work in his mine, that it was safe to work there, or tell them it wasn’t. The correct OSHA safety guidelines would work as a general guide to the potential employee as an indication of whether the mine was truly safe, and since unions would be permitted in a Libertarian society, as long as there was no coercion, either to join or not to join, then those unions could investigate individual mine safety before recommending to their members, or anyone, to work in that mine.
Now, what would happen if a mine owner fraudulently claimed that his mine was safe to work in when it truly wasn’t? Upon first discovering this very serious crime of a safety violation, which would be a breach of contract between the mine owner who had claimed that the mine was safe to work in and the employees, the punishment might well be a stiff fine, going directly into the pockets of the workers put at risk (not their union), since it would be possible that a mistake had been made, an act of nature had changed the safety of the mine, or the mine owner was genuinely mistaken in his perceived safety of the mine.
However, on a second (intentional or unintentional) safely violation, what would be the punishment? Nothing less than the complete confiscation of all the assets of the mine, along with the jailing of the mine owner. If people were killed in the incident, then the owner would be sentenced to life in jail without parole. And all those assets would go solely to the immediate families of the miners killed or injured. In compensation for the loss of their loved ones, they would be instant multi-deca-millionaires.
And what would be the effect of such a “draconian” punishment on the owners and shareholders of other mines? Silverwolf would guess that they would make damned sure that their mines were always operated in a safe manner, as they would no longer have an incentive to endanger people’s lives and receive a slap on the wrist from this wonderful “Liberal Administration”. With Libertarianism, this atrocity would be solved overnight; with the Democratic Liberals, it will tragically be repeated over and over.
And likewise with the oil spill in the Gulf. Though they’d been in for a year-and-a-half, — and just weeks after Obama, in his wisdom, decides that, yes, this foolish process of fouling up the oceans to get a little more energy to waste on American gas-guzzlers from the Socialist car consortium in Detroit is fine by him, so let’s open up drilling — they still hadn’t “reformed” the agency that was supposedly protecting the American public. Guess they were “working on it”, as all Liberal governments perennially seem to be, but “clearly more needs to be done”. Oh really?
Yet, all those “bright” Democratic Party lawyers in Congress never had the imagination to think that perhaps an oil spill of the future could cause more than $75 million dollars in damage, and a year and a half into their rule, they still had not changed this liability cap to an unlimited one.
And how would Libertarianism have challenged this problem? Simply by never allowing a “cap”, which is an illegal or immoral limitation on what a corporation would have to pay back individuals whose private property it irreparably damaged. And which means also that, right now, the individuals affected on the Gulf Coast, plus the US taxpayer, would own all the assets of BP. And the shareholders of BP would have to take the haircut, not the American Individual Capitalist.
It’s the same with unemployment, which would be solved virtually overnight by the abolition of the immoral minimum wage laws, which restrict an Individual’s Inalienable Right to Freely Contract with another Human Being. And likewise with all vending permits, and all business license requirements, would be abolished once and for all from this Indian Land, where free-trading, and the freedom to vend on public or private property, without a license, would be re-instated, as it existed in early America, on the frontier West and South, and in the tenements of New York and other immigrant magnet cities. Freedom to be a Capitalist would once more exist in America, but not only in small patches, here and there, for short periods of time. It would exist everywhere in America, and for all times.
But the Socialists would rather have their 9.8% official unemployment rate, and all their free goodies for their constituents, just as in Greece and Spain, than that principles of Justice should apply to Economics. At least many who voted for the Misery are now themselves amongst the Suffering, and there is a certain Poetical Justice in that fact.
It’s a similar situation with the deficit. Obama told us that a stimulus package was needed to get America back on its feet. Ron Paul said it would not work, that they would come back asking for more, and that the additions to the deficit would continue to destabilize the economy. And he predicted that when the package was proposed.
Now Obama and his economists are back, arguing that we need a second round of stimulus or we risk a double-dip, just as Ron Paul predicted over a year ago. Looks like Ron was right, and Barack was wrong. Again.
Moreover, let’s not forget the millions rotting in the American Bastilles for the “crime” of possessing a medically-useful herb known as cannabis, helping to bankrupt the States and the Federal Government, and in clear violation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. But don’t expect those “Champions of Justice” amongst the Liberal Democrats to do a thing about it, even though the President could go on television in an hour and urge Congress to legalize it. Let’s remember that those millions rotting in jails right at this moment would have been re-united immediately with their families a year and a half ago, if Ron Paul had been elected President of the United States, and approximately 700,000 people a year would not have there lives disrupted by these Prohibitionist Miscreants. This continued heinous tyranny is brought to you courtesy of the Democrats in Congress, our nicotine-addicted, self-righteous, prohibitionist President, and all the voters who put him there. They are morally responsible for the continued immorality of these Prohibitionist Diktats, and let’s never forget it.
Modern Liberalism is a false, unworkable, immoral doctrine, based on the perceived whims of FDR and Keynes to conditions in a pre-digital world, almost 80 years ago. But the people continue to suffer from its consequences. The Obama Administration is a textbook example of how and why such an Administration is doomed to failure, and is, in essence, no administration at all. Except to administer restrictions on Freedom.
And that used to be known as Fascism.
