Understanding Free Market Capitalism

Submitted by Freedom Crier

rihannaOne has to admire Rihanna’s Tenacity to Work hard to reach her level of achievement demonstrating to all that just a kid from St. Michael willing to use her Talents and Abilities can achieve what she has put their mind to. Rihanna through her Drive and Determination is in a position where she can give a hand up, ‘not a hand out’ to assist others through her scholarship fund and other benevolent causes from her own pocket, not someone else’s. Her Motto is Work, Work, and Work. Another local example of a Work, Work, and Work entrepreneur is Mark Maloney who lately is getting some stick. Do not glorify one and disparage other local entrepreneurs like Bjerkham, Bizzy & COW Williams. They are many others not singled out but a select few?

The Government in Barbados is grossly oversized employing 20% of the workforce. That is a tremendous burden on the taxpayer. I would prefer to see more people in Barbados work less for the Government. I want them to have the rewards of their own industry. This is the chief meaning of freedom. “A man’s right to work as he will, to spend what he earns, to own his own property, to have the state as servant and not as master, they are the essence of a free economy, and on that freedom all our freedoms depend”. Margaret Thatcher.

Russian born novelist’s, Ayn Rand’s, intellectual assault against the Marxists of her day who diminish the worth of Individual Freedom, she argues in character: “But you say that [wealth] is made by the strong at the expense of the weak? What strength do you mean? It is not the strength of guns or muscles. Wealth is the product of man’s capacity to think. Then is [wealth] made by the man who invents a motor at the expense of those who did not invent it? Is [wealth] made by the intelligent at the expense of the fools? By the able at the expense of the incompetent? By the ambitious at the expense of the lazy? [Wealth] is made — before it can be looted or mooched — by the effort of every honest man, each to the extent of his ability. An honest man is one who knows that he can’t consume more than he has produced” (See: Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand, 1957.) “In other words, wealth comes at nobody’s expense but the inventor, the free thinker, the one actually taking the risk and making the sacrifice. It never costs anything to anybody else. There is no expense incurred to those who sit by the sidelines. Therefore, it cannot ever be considered ‘theft” from others who were never involved nor invested in the very process. It costs others nothing!”

How is Free Enterprise “Capitalism” better than Socialism?

The essential nature of Free Enterprise Capitalism is social harmony through the pursuit of self-interest. Under Capitalism, the individual’s pursuit of his own economic self-interest simultaneously benefits the economic self-interests of all others. In allowing each individual to act unhampered by government regulations, Capitalism causes wealth to be created in the most efficient manner possible which ultimately raises the standard of living, increases the economic opportunities, and makes available an ever growing supply of products for everyone. The free-market operates in such a way so that as one man creates more wealth for himself, he simultaneously creates more wealth and opportunities for everyone else, which means that as the rich become richer, the poor become richer. It must be understood that Capitalism serves the economic self-interests of all, including the Non-Capitalists. “And even if we were all magically made equal in wealth tonight, we’d be unequal in the morning because some of us would spend it and some of us would save it”. Lawrence Reed.

Contrary to widely held beliefs, capitalism is not a system which exploits a large portion of society for the sake of a small minority of wealthy capitalists. Ironically, it is actually socialism that causes the systematic exploitation of labor. Since the socialist state holds a universal monopoly on labor and production, no economic incentive exists for the socialist state to provide anything more than minimum physical subsistence for the workers except to perhaps prevent riots or revolutions. Exploitation is inherent to the nature of socialism because individuals cannot live for their own sake, rather, they exist merely as means to whatever ends the socialist rulers—the self-proclaimed spokesman of “society,” may have in mind.”

Bringing this reality of full Blown Socialism close to home are our neighbors in Venezuela and the ills they are suffering with corruption on every level by their elected officials. The Government controls the largest known oil reserves in the world, yet the Country is Broke. They also control through compulsory means the food distribution system, yet there is little food and people scavenge to survive. There is diminutive water and energy shortages, not even to speak about basic commodities and medical supplies and needed medications! Yet they blame America for all their tribulations, it is never their fault! Want to guess who the richest person in Venezuela is! None other than Hugo Chavez’s daughter.

clip_image008

Any country on earth is capable of creating the like, watch the trend or patterns evolving you only need to follow the path to Venezuela. Attack property rights and Trade, Pillage the Rich, abolish the Price System, Jail Dissenters, crush the opposition, and dismantle the System of National Liberty. This is Socialism; it is a path to Hell on Earth. How many steps are we in Barbados away from this Peril? We sure are on a downward slope.

What is the Solution?

Free Enterprise (Capitalism) leads to Prosperity and Freedom while Socialism leads to Poverty and Bondage! Capitalism doesn’t come with a warranty or “money back” guarantee. Yet, it encourages individuality, creativity, opportunity, risk taking, ambition, pride, dignity, and a sense of accomplishment, promotion, and provision. As much as Socialist professes their disdain for capitalism, they’ve yet to offer a better system. The reason is simple; it doesn’t exist.

Capitalism is a made up word by Communist to describe “Free Enterprise and the use of Capital”. Free Enterprise, for it to be Free, must be Free of all encumbrances that will control it. Crony Capitalism, uses the word Capitalism in an effort to change the language from the word Free-remembering Capitalism = Free Enterprise. What we have pre-existing in the world is not Free Enterprise; Crony Capitalism is an attempt to label the System of Free Enterprise by regulating it until it is no longer Free. Free Enterprise (Capitalism) = Free Markets

Cronyism is where big business and governments collude to give special favours to those entities to the exclusion of the ordinary person. Crony Capitalism is an attempt to label the System of Free Enterprise by regulating it until it is no longer Free.

Four Reasons the Left Should Love Capitalism But…

blackcommunitynews.com/four-reasons-the-left-should-love… Click on link to open

Capitalism has a new competitor, and its name is “shame.” The left is determined to make capitalism morally reprehensible. Cloaked in provocative terms like “income inequality,” wealth redistribution has become the popular economic philosophy in the world today, but it doesn’t hold a candle to capital…

clip_image010

There is Free Marker Enterprise (Capitalism) and Crony- Capitalism.

Free Enterprise is not regulated by Endless Burdensome Regulations, brought about by Socialist Communism resulting in Crony- Capitalism! The law in a free society is only used for the protection of person and property—you cannot use the law as a tool for force and theft of property and labour, NO MATTER HOW GOOD THE INTENTION—this economic ideology of a “fair share” of another’s labour is the foundation for Fascism, Nazism, Socialism, and Communism. Using government to “help” individuals is NOT liberalism, it is at one level or another—only and ALWAYS Collectivism.

Are you tired of being Robbed?

clip_image012

A Capitalist Society is a just society because all individuals are considered equal under the law. Capitalism recognizes that it is just for a man to keep what he has earned and that it is unjust for a man, or group of men, to have the right to what other people have earned. Since all people must live independently under Capitalism, all of the material values that a person acquires must be earned. Thus, the expression of social justice under Capitalism is that what a man earns is directly proportional to what he produces, no progressive income taxes stifling his achievement for the sole fact the he did achieve. All other forms of government, such as the welfare state, institutionalize injustice by legally expropriating the property of some men and giving it to others.

clip_image014

Many people have trouble accepting that Capitalism is a just system because of the existence of economic inequality. It is observed that famous celebrities and sports stars have very large incomes for work that is perceived as trivial, and that many hard working people make incomes which pale in comparison for jobs that are perceived to be a greater benefit to society. What people must realize is that it is perfectly just for a superstar (like Rihanna), even if they have little or no education, to make a hundred times the income of a scientist who has a Ph.D. and works much longer and strenuous hours. Why? Because they create enormous profits through ticket sales and product endorsements, whereas the scientist generates very little revenue through his research. That is, each of them deserves what they earn, and what they earn is the result of how much wealth each of them creates (Incidentally, this is not to say that the Celebs and Artiste are morally superior to the scientist because they are wealthier). Since each man has the right to the product of his labor, it is completely just for the disparity in incomes to exist, and the only injustice to occur would be or the government to take money from the athlete and give it to those who supposedly deserve it on the basis of their “need.”

What is a Capitalist?

From a purely economic point of view, a capitalist is a person who buys in order to sell for profit. However, the productive role that capitalists and businessman serve cannot be overstated.

Far from being exploiters, the true function of capitalists and businessmen “… is to raise the productivity, and thus the real wages, of manual labor by means of creating, coordinating, and improving the efficiency of the division of labor.” By continuously improving the efficiency of labor, Capitalists and businessmen are responsible for raising wages and creating employment which serve to raise the standard of living of everyone. Furthermore, by funding research and capital investments, corporations and capitalists make possible all of the modern day conveniences, from laser surgery to orchestra halls that most people take for granted every day. In fact, since capitalists make available so much life-saving and labor-saving technology to so many people, they should be regarded as some of mankind’s greatest benefactors. A few capitalists and businessmen have done more to help mankind live a more enjoyable life in a more fundamental sense, a capitalist is anyone (from a janitor to a millionaire) who lives solely by his own effort and who respects the rights of others. The best symbol of a capitalist is the trader. That is, the man or woman who only deals with other people on a voluntary basis. A capitalist is neither an “exploiter” nor necessarily a “greedy” individual.

What is the Role of Government in a Capitalist Society?

The only purpose of Government would be to protect its citizens from force or fraud.

Any other function of government than those listed above, no matter what its intentions, would necessitate the violation of rights by initiating the use of force against the people it is supposed to protect. Taxation is not Voluntary it is taken by Force.

“There are two and only two ways that any economy can be organized. One is by freedom and voluntary choice—the way of the market. The other is by force and dictation—the way of the State…
The State obtains its revenue by coercion, by threatening dire penalties should the income not be forthcoming. That coercion is known as “taxation,” although in less regularized epochs it was often known as “tribute…
Taxation is theft, purely and simply even though it is theft on a grand and colossal scale which no acknowledged criminals could hope to match. It is a compulsory seizure of the property of the State’s inhabitants, or subjects.”

We must be able to have a System of Governance that allows Free Market Enterprise without all the burdensome regulations and heavy Taxations.

“Free-market Capitalism is a network of free and voluntary exchanges in which producers work, produce, and exchange their products for the products of others through prices voluntarily arrived at….
Man has rights because they are natural rights. They are grounded in the nature of man: the individual’s capacity for conscious choice, the necessity for him to use his mind and energy to adopt goals and values, to find out about the world, to pursue his ends in order to survive and prosper, his capacity and need to communicate and interact with other human beings and to participate in the division of labor”…

“With these fundamentals now on the table, we may now keenly understand what American Spectator’s author J.T. Young succinctly points out:

“The left’s inherent challenge is justifying their claim to what others own.” Hence they launch divisive disinformation campaigns pitting one against another, calling whatever they can’t control ‘unfair and undemocratic.’

(See: Understanding the Left’s Demands on What Others Own, T.J. Young, The American Spectator, March 2013).

“And they do this by hypocritically indicting Free Enterprise (Capitalism) or laissez faire economics as criminal. They claim that such a system is entirely unfair, wherein Government interference is kept at a minimum and free trade is generally allowed to be unregulated between individuals. They accuse such unrestrained Liberty as being the means by which the wholesale “theft” from society takes place. This gives them reason to limit personal freedom and aggressively denigrate the Liberties of personal initiative and creativity.

Under the rubric of “You didn’t build that!” they feverishly claim that Society creates wealth, not individuals. Persisting in their lie, they insist that entrepreneurs are just those that steal or pirate the wealth rightfully belonging to others. According to their entrenched purview, everything that individuals may create or produce only occurs because of the governing that has made the means of wealth possible. They erroneously claim that every activity yielding a prosperous outcome belongs rightfully to everybody else.

And thus their redistribution of wealth becomes the final arbitrator of fairness. In their view, no matter the individual endeavour, means or investment applied no one has the right to ownership of anything that somebody else does not have. Thus according to this half-baked paradigm, Marxist-Utopists hate Free-Enterprise Capitalism because it violates their sense of entitlement (‘fairness’ to them), accusing Capitalists of the three infamies they find most unforgiving. Namely, (1) the inequality of personal outcome which is derived from the interaction between (2) Free-Market economics and (3) personal independence, all of which they claim invariably leads to the greed and self-centeredness of materialism.

Thus they invalidate the most fundamental rights of man, the rights of ownership and personal property.” Correctly countering this selective perception, Russian born novelist Ayn Rand argued that, “Just as man can’t exist without his body, so no rights can exist without the right to translate one’s rights into reality — to think, to work and to keep the results — which means: the right of property…. Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights [and the Bill of Rights particularly] is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities…and the smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights, cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.” (See: The Fountainhead, Ayn Rand, 1943)

Don’t be fooled by the words “Socialism” and “Communism”. Once you come to understand what they mean in terms of economic freedom you will understand that they are anything but social, and have nothing to do with community. They simply mean the “centralization of power in the hands of the people that make up the government in the hands of the master class”. They are nothing but euphemisms for “Slavery”.

What is the Opposite of Capitalism?

Statism, in any form!

Statism is the concentration of power in the state at the expense of individual freedom. Capitalism is the only system which protects individual rights and freedom, but the variety of political systems which violate individual freedom are numerous: Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Nazism, absolute Monarchies, Military Dictatorships, Theocracies, or the Welfare State are all systems which infringe upon individual rights, which means they institutionalize the initiation of force against their citizens.

It must be realized that there are only two fundamental political philosophies: those who are for freedom and individual rights and those who are against them. The types of political systems who are against freedom and individual rights are numerous, for there are many ways to violate the rights of man, but there is only one political-economic philosophy which upholds that the rights of man are absolute and immutable—Capitalism.

    You and others like you on BU and through other channels are steering the racism pot in this small country.

    Bajan whites, (if there is such a thing left) are a minority, so were the Jews during Hitler’s time and we are all aware of what that propaganda brought about. Is that your objective?

    Donna you should learn from your son’s experience, you deny the reality of your son’s involvement of integration not segregation. Gladly he is not of age to learn how to hate! Careful what you teach him, you will be held accountable!

    You and others like you would like the racial pot to remain unstirred. BECAUSE IT BENEFITS YOU!

    Gazer,

    Believe it or not my time in the university was spent studying such things as financial accounting, cost accounting, microeconomics, macroeconomics, politics, financial management, sociology, revenue law, industrial relations, mathematics, statistics, auditing, personnel management, organizational theory. I learnt enough to know that there is nothing about this, as you recognized, unoriginal argument that is worthy of engagement. That is why I didn’t, and never do, bother with it.

    As I shared with you recently,

    “And a little more advice from an Old Soul, “when we think we know it all, there is little room left to be enlightened because we have chosen to block the light. Above All, Humility Is Our Friend.


  5. @ Gazer

    let me say that Freedom is not Old, and surely the Free marked should never be outdated. If these principles have over run by Communist Socialist, they need to be AWAKENED again! Free Market Principles are the only thing that brings people out of POVERTY!

    Let me also say I do not believe you to be in anyway as you say,”@Freedom Crier
    Before you say it, let me say it… “I don’t know what the hell I am talking about”.

    I think you are an engaged thinker. We all have deficiencies and are in no way perfect in our understanding, however all it takes is a desire to learn, and by exercising our Faculties we grow and progress.

    And I thank you for engaging in the conversation, I appreciate your humility and your sense of humor, you have made my day.

    Keep on Gazing (questioning and looking for answers). When you receive the right ones you will know to the very center of your core and No One but No One can Take away Truth from you once you have been Enlightened.


  6. freedom for whom crier,

    Where is YOUR humility? You speak so condescendingly like a fount of knowledge who has nothing to learn from us. Do you even read what you write? You misread Gazer. He smelled your shit but didn’t know how to flush it. Don’t try to pit us against each other. Gazer and I are like kindred spirits. Divide and rule will not work with us.

    No, I have better things to do than waste time with you.


  7. @ Donna

    Dear Donna, wherever we find truth we should embrace it. That has been my understanding for a long time. And I try my hardest not to accuse others as I also understand whose philosophy that comes from…

    As you can see, I am certainly not a “go with the flow person”, neither am I trying to kidnap your kindled spirit friend Gazer, I tend to look for the best in others, so forgive me if I do not see him as you do.

    I speak what is in my heart and mind, as for over 40 years of having studied and taught the Gospel, my only intent is to share ‘Truth’ and not to mislead others. Are we not suppose to set our Candle Sticks on a Hill and not under a Bushel. That is the only Language I know and the only way I know how to be. Sorry if that offends you.

    May I share a quote with you…

    “Data is not Information,
    Information is not knowledge,
    Knowledge is not Understanding,
    Understanding is not Wisdom”.

    To which I would add…
    The Proper Application of Information leads to knowledge,
    The Proper Application of Knowledge leads to Understanding and
    The Proper Application of Understanding leads to Wisdom.

    With all your learning that you say you have, and I believe you, if you would Apply these Principles given benevolently and with your best interest at heart, you would find great treasures and never ending enlightenment.

    Education Alone will not qualify one to reach the mark!

    Your Character leaves much to be desired, what you consider fun, is base, dishonorable, improper, sordid, vile, immoral and disreputable to say the least. No wonder when we come to the judgment Bar and proclaim, “I did so many good things in your name, the Great Eternal Judge will exclaim, I never knew you, depart from me.”

    This earth life is a time is for mankind to prepare to meet their maker and to learn better and a nobler way to be, by making correct choices as pertaining to Good over Evil.

    We are free to choose, however we are not free to choose the consequences of our choices! Our choices will determine our Eternal Destiny! We will be judged on our Thoughts, Words and Deeds.

    You are a fortunate young lady, besides your conscience cringing when you say these things you do, warning you that you are heading in the wrong direction, others who have not commented here previously have warned you and yet you persist in your stupor and recklessness.

    You cannot say at the end of the day, you have not been warned. The only thing saving your reputation right now is that your face is not shown! However some know who you are, especially the One Above and You Will Be Answerable!

    Unfortunately some so desire the lime light and in this case the one claiming to be a Christian, feel they will be accepted if the think and speak dirty to fit it.

    Brain, Ms Donna played the race card on you to pull the wool over your eyes. I thought your advice to her was commendable… to play her game is not going to help her out of the pit she has dug for herself.

    In this world we are either hot or cold, lukewarm people, well as I understand as it is written even the Savior will spew them out of his mouth.

    This young lady has chosen to harden her heart, what she exemplifies is the complete opposite of what Christianity represents!

    There is not a thread of humility displayed only Arrogance and Pride which always goes before the Fall!!

    Her Aim is to be Detractor from the message in this Article, and set up herself on Center Stage with her Crude Antics. That is the only way she hopes to gain attention.

    Besides a ‘Brain’, we need to seek the Spirit of Discernment … There are many spirits abroad in the world that seek to deceive. How do we know them?… by their works. Are they espousing goodness and living by by the Word or are they only saying so and doing the complete opposite?

      Here’s why I’m DELIGHTED about the FBI’s verdict on Hillary…

      Written by Allen West on July 5, 2016

      ABW thoughtful

      Of course, the news cycle is completely dominated by FBI Director James Comey’s announcement yesterday recommending no criminal charges against Hillary Clinton. And my response is GREAT! I can’t thank Director Comey enough for coming to this decision.

      My concern has always been that Barack Obama would release the hounds on Mrs. Clinton and then push for his vice president, Joe Biden, to be the Democrat nominee. And then, to placate the far lefty socialists, who own the Democrat party, Obama would position Sen. Elizabeth Warren as Biden’s VP. That would be a really tough ticket to beat, since Joe Biden’s favorables, regardless of gaffes and such, are extremely high.

      However, James Comey just delivered a gift wrapped with a bow. Why do I say that?

      Simple, here’s what FBI Director Comey said regarding Hillary Clinton and this email server episode:

      • He concluded Hillary was “extremely careless” in handling our nation’s secrets.
      • He admitted no reasonable person could have believed putting these emails on a private server was at all appropriate or acceptable.
      • He admitted 110 emails on the server were classified at the time they were sent — showing Hillary not only lied, but knowingly endangered national security as secretary of state.
      • He admitted Hillary deleted work-related emails before turning them over to the State Department, despite her claims otherwise.
      • And, most shocking, Mr. Comey even admitted it’s likely foreign governments hacked her emails — and our adversaries could know critical secrets about the U.S. government because of Hillary’s actions.

      Here’s a simple Southern summation. Hillary Clinton was extremely careless with our not just classified, but highly classified, information — why not just term this gross negligence? I can tell you, if I were a member of our Armed Services who’s been punished for misuse or mishandling of classified information, I would be filing an appeal. See, in the military, at a minimum, you’ll lose your security clearance; maximum, you’ll face courts-martial punishment.

  14. “More and more, we are beginning to feel the presence of authoritarianism. We are coerced into conformity and obeying the demands of “society.” We quite naturally feel oppressed. We know that there is deceptive manipulation of the public will. We know that subtle political forces are extracting our wealth and crushing our liberties under altruistic pretenses. Once we unmask the morality of criminal politics, we see a sophisticated process of using words and phrases to force upon us a social and moral ethic of conformity. In fact, our standard of mental health is nothing more than our complete submission to conformity. If we translate further, conformity means yielding to the morality of government authority without question. The “national interest” is a monopoly of demagogues and powercrats”.


  15. “A discussion of the morality of government is more than an intellectual exercise. It has to do with understanding force and raw political power hidden behind the cleverest of disguises. Our perception of government morality directly relates to our quality of life and whether or not we pass human liberty to our heirs. There can be no perception of reality without inquiry into the nature of political authority. We must understand we are born into a system of thought that is rarely challenged.

    More and more, we are beginning to feel the presence of authoritarianism. We are coerced into conformity and obeying the demands of “society.” We quite naturally feel oppressed. We know that there is deceptive manipulation of the public will. We know that subtle political forces are extracting our wealth and crushing our liberties under altruistic pretenses.

    Political power in the United States is reckless. The political system is nothing less than mob rule. Private property is pillaged and destroyed, and the people are manipulated to support it. There is no “consent of the governed.”

  17. The Obamaconomy is Thriving? Not So Fast, Lefties…

    Not only do they not understand how the unemployment numbers work but they don’t bother to see what’s actually BEHIND the numbers before boasting how great they are.

    The United States currently has 94 MILLION people out of the workforce. That is the highest number in history. And no, they aren’t all retirees. They are people who gave up working.

    These people aren’t actually counted in the unemployment numbers as unemployed because they are no longer receiving unemployment. They simply POOF disappear from the numbers as though they no longer exist, which makes the unemployment number go DOWN.

    The other thing that the left doesn’t bother to look at are the TYPES of jobs that the private sector is creating.

    Are this high-paying middle class jobs or low-paying jobs? The answer is in the data but that is something the left never bothers with.

    The majority of jobs being created under the failed Obamaconomy are low paying service oriented jobs.

    You know, the types of jobs the left wants people to earn $15 an hour for.

    We’ve already reported on this very issue:

    The mainstream media’s spin on last week’s jobs report is again hiding the real bad news.

    While the Bureau of Labor Statistics is reporting that 242,000 jobs were added in February, the most important number is that 82 percent of those jobs were minimum-wage jobs.

    Earnings were a disaster, ZeroHedge points out:

    February suffered the biggest ever monthly drop in average weekly earnings, because not only did hourly earnings drop but so did hours worked, resulting in far lower overall weekly wages.

    Not only has poverty reached a 50 year high under Obama but history will refer to him as the ‘food stamp President’ because almost 47 million Americans are receiving food stamps under his reign. Not exactly records to be proud of.

    And Republicans had nothing to do with that. The failed Obamaconomy is all thanks to Democrats who rejected any potential job creating bills under Harry Reid’s rule and who have done nothing but praise job killing regulations and higher taxes that hurt businesses across the country.

    Democrats own this pathetic recovery. They may want to check into the details before bragging about it. This is nothing to write home about.

    The Obamaconomy is Thriving? Not So Fast, Lefties…

    • The US Unemployment rate released by the BLS is purposefully misleading. Since Bill Clinton came to power they have changed ALL the models to reflect the Rose coloured view. They use Birth/ Death Rate adjustments that are crooked, make assumptions about the populace finding Jobs which are pure fantasy—-the reality is that based on honest Stats like those from Shadow Government Statistics .com the Unemployment rate is NORTH of 10%! Additionally there are more people having to work 2-3 Jobs than ever before as Pay is Down. When millions have been out of work for the maximum Unemployment payout period then when that payment stops they are ASSUMED to have found a Job or started their own business???????

      The Bureau of Labour Statistics BLS should change its name to BS!

    The Clinton’s have a blood trail…. Even as recent as Benghazi! People, who support Killery, choose to look the other way, according to her “at this point what difference does it make”. She knows that Democrat supporters, especially the younger generation are so uniformed. She knows her audience, and plays to their senselessness with a smile and a Hollow Soul behind it! The other Democrats that know her intentions support their own Secret Set with the intent to continue to Plunder, Steal and Murder for Power and Gain.

    Being an Abortion Advocate, is yet another side of killery.

    No matter how you describe those running for office on the Republican side, they do not fit these criteria!!

  20. Title of Liberty, Ezra Taft Benson
“We are now—this very day—at war with the socialist-communist conspiracy. This is a point that a lot of people do not seem to realize. They think that just because we are not shooting at each other with bullets that it isn’t a real war. But, we are really at war and we must win this war if we expect to survive as a free people…
It is not enough to be against socialist- communist. We must shed our complacency and aggressively meet this challenge….

    There can be no compromise with the socialist-communists. They are at war with us—with the entire cause of freedom, and the sooner every American faces this hard fact, the stronger our position will be. It is a real war. The lines are tightly drawn. The war is more insidious, more devious, more devastating, and more satanical than any war in our history. Moral principles, once universally recognized are ignored. International law once respected is thrown to the wind.
The socialist-communist philosophy is devastatingly evil—destructive of all that is good, uplifting and beautiful. It strikes at the very foundation of all we hold dear.

    The socialist-communist “has convinced himself that nothing is evil which answers the call of expediency.” This is a most damnable doctrine. People who truly accept such a philosophy have neither conscience nor honor. Force, trickery, lies, broken promises to them are wholly justified…

    It is time, therefore, that everyone become alerted and informed about the aims, tactics, and schemes of socialism and communism which are essentially a war against God and the plan of salvation, which is based on freedom of choice.


    The fight against godless communism is a very real part of every man’s duty. It is the fight against slavery, immorality, atheism, terrorism, cruelty, barbarism, deceit, and the destruction of human life through a kind of tyranny unsurpassed by anything in human history.


  21. Modern Slaves are not in chains they are in Debt. The Adversary was a liar from the beginning of time and Communist Socialism is a Godless Conspiracy. It is a time when good will be deemed bad and bad deemed good.

    Be careful how we judge, by their fruit we shall know them… Know the tree by the fruit it bears…What are the fruit that we have witnessed of this present Administration…None of their intentions are honorable. Every kind of Corruption has emerged from this present Administration since holding office with Barrack Obama as their commander in Chief!

  22. “A statist system—whether of a communist, fascist, Nazi, socialist or “welfare” type—is based on the . . . government’s unlimited power, which means: on the rule of brute force. The differences among statist systems are only a matter of time and degree; the principle is the same. Under statism, the government is not a policeman, but a legalized criminal that holds the power to use physical force in any manner and for any purpose it pleases against legally disarmed, defenseless victims.

    Nothing can ever justify so monstrously evil a theory. Nothing can justify the horror, the brutality, the plunder, the destruction, the starvation, the slave-labor camps, the torture chambers, the wholesale slaughter of statist dictatorships”.

    Charlie Daniels Releases New Song Exposing Shadow Government.
    Published on Apr 16, 2016
    Excerpt from the excellent Charlie Daniel’s song “Behold a Pale Horse’ dealing with the world in which we now live, and the Word of God that foretold it. (Revelation 6:8)


  25. “It is important to avoid focusing on charged words such as “communism,” “socialism,” or “fascism” as they often carry associations and meanings specific to the user or listener. As with Islam and other such systems, modernity pressures changes in appearances if not formulations such that the “communist” of the 50’s would not appear in similar manner today. What is significant about Skousen’s list of goals are the constructs, tactics and outcomes to which they attach, not the categorical headings under which they might fit.

    Of the 45 goals in Skousen’s list, some obviously do not fit today’s changed circumstances while others are far more devastating than originally fathomed. Still, the entire list is provided to furnish proper context. Repeated as read into the Congressional record in 1963, the goals below speak for themselves and show just how far Obama, top aide Valerie Jarrett (herself from a family with various communist associations) and fellow comrades have advanced a great deal of this decades-old vision”… Read More

    • @Donna

      One has to learn to exercise tolerance. It is quality mankind lacks in abundance.


  29. For who it may Concern…

    • The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.
    • The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
    • A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.
    • The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.
    • The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.


  30. For whom it may Concern…

    • Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die.
    • Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?
    • A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise.


  31. For whom it may Concern…

    • The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.
    • A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.
    • Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom: but a man of understanding walketh uprightly.


  32. For whom it may Concern…

    • The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.
    • The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.
    • The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.


  33. David,

    I never heard you instructing ANYONE to be tolerant of MY ideas. Why should THIS attract your attention. Look post what I say or don’t post it but don’t come to me with foolishness, man!

    Strangely enough when I came here I was expecting you to say SOMETHING of the kind . Hmmmm……..


    • @Donna

      Why must you be so aggressive? It shouldn’t matter if you believe BU has advised others on the blog to be tolerant. What you should do is evaluate if the advice has merit or not.Look carry on smartly.


  34. @ Freedom Crier,

    I must admit that I find it very difficult wading through your rambling scribes which lack objectivity and any sense of nuance.

    Capitalism, unquestionably, is a major driver in an open economy. The results are evident: human beings become more motivated and innovative. I appreciate the dynamism of capitalism. However where capitalism fails miserably is that it breeds a theology that dictates that the rich become richer at the expense of the poor.

    A system that disenfranchises an ever growing percentage of the masses; whilst giving carte blanche to the wealthy elite must be destroyed. Is it not evident to you that this elite group have dominion over the lives and the life chances of the masses? Such a group will always reward the few at the expense of the majority.

    The fruits of your beloved capitalist system are highlighted in the story below. I do hope that you can find a home more suited to your personal beliefs.

  35. To Whom it may Concern….

    • The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.
    • He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.
    • The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.


  36. Exclaimer thanks you for your contribution, much appreciated and welcomed.
    We have been so steeped in Socialism it becomes very difficult to discern between what Freedoms truly is what it truly feels like and the liberation of the human Spirit of accomplishing whatever their dreams are. No part of Socialism is good it is in direct Opposition to the Spirit of Freedom. The Ideology of Socialism when embraced will bring Bondage, Tyranny and Chaos i.e. what we are witnessing presently.

    Socialism has its tentacles like a giant Mantel over the earth and we on the Isles of the Sea are not exempt! It is a slow process of Rot, while promising everything while delivering Poverty under the guise of Equality and Economic Justice, Divisiveness under the guise of Social Equality, Moral Decay as in Relativism as in no Moral Absolutes and where God Is Removed!! Understand that the plan is to “CONTROL AND RULE BY WAY OF THE EXTRACTION OF THE PEOPLES WEALTH WHILE ENCROACHING ON THEIR FREEDOM THROUGH BURDENSOME REGULATIONS”.

    Socialists intentionally suppress creativity and innovation by discouraging individual God-given talent and encouraging dependency. In short, your failure is required for its success!

    At the root of Socialist Philosophy is the demand that you forfeit your faith and the dreams God birthed in you. Additionally, Socialists would like you to believe that without coercion, individuals are incapable or unwilling to be generous to their neighbor with their own hard-earned money. It’s just not true! What is true, however, is Thievery via Over-Taxation has never incentivized productivity.

    Socialist gets us to buy into the LIE that we must participate in thievery and if we do, they the Ruling Class will always be on Top. Socialism cannot exist without having someone to steal from. Why do you feel that others are entitled to your hard earned money? What is wrong with working, and keeping what you have earned? As Walter Williams says, “Tell me exactly how much you think you are entitled to of what I have worked for”?

    As far the rich robbing the poor…Free Enterprise is no longer available, what we have in its place is Crony-Capitalism (False Capitalism which is a Un-holy Alliance of Socialist Government and BIG Business that Favors the Few!). That is why we have Tax Loop Holes!

  37. David,

    Ha! Typical male! A man who behaves like I do would be called assertive and no nonsense. But I guess you wish to tell me to be a lady. My father tried that and failed. NO MAN defines me or puts me in a gender vice. My answer to you is – allow me to be me as you allow others to be themselves. DO NOT attempt to tell me how to be a woman. If you wish to be seen as fair then BE BLOODY FAIR!


  38. Free Enterprise (Capitalism) leads to Prosperity and Freedom while Socialism leads to Poverty and Bondage! Capitalism doesn’t come with a warranty or “money back” guarantee. Yet, it encourages individuality, creativity, opportunity, risk taking, ambition, pride, dignity, and a sense of accomplishment, promotion, and provision. Nonetheless, the lazy, stagnant, and ambitious are rewarded fairly and equitably. As much as Socialist professes their disdain for capitalism, they’ve yet to offer a better system. The reason is simple; it doesn’t exist….

    Peace and Security are better established through the means of Economic liberty. It is only when a people are individually and economically free can a society establishing a self-respecting and self-governing citizen. A people who depend upon a government managing personal needs, personal benefits, and personal responsibilities are owned by the whole instead of being a society of self owned individuals.

    The law in a free society is only used for the protection of person and property—you cannot use the law as a tool for force and theft of property and labor, NO MATTER HOW GOOD THE INTENTION—this economic ideology of a “fair share” of anther’s labor is the foundation for Fascism, Nazism, Socialism, and Communism. Using government to “help” individuals is NOT liberalism, it is at one level or another—only and ALWAYS Collectivism.

    Classical Liberalism SEPARATES government power from individual property, individual business, individual conscience, individual needs, individual labor, individual choices, individual responsibilities, and individual consequences which neither harm or obstruct another…collectivism MERGES society with government…. Collectivism represents the public ownership of human beings–the public ownership of health, actions, needs, pursuits, and responsibilities…”

  39. Russian born novelist’s, Ayn Rand’s, intellectual assault against the Marxists of her day who diminish the worth of Individual Freedom, she argues in character: “But you say that [wealth] is made by the strong at the expense of the weak? What strength do you mean? It is not the strength of guns or muscles. Wealth is the product of man’s capacity to think.

    Then is [wealth] made by the man who invents a motor at the expense of those who did not invent it? Is [wealth] made by the intelligent at the expense of the fools? By the able at the expense of the incompetent? By the ambitious at the expense of the lazy? [Wealth] is made — before it can be looted or mooched — by the effort of every honest man, each to the extent of his ability. An honest man is one who knows that he can’t consume more than he has produced” (See: Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand, 1957.)

    “In other words, wealth comes at nobody’s expense but the inventor, the free thinker, the one actually taking the risk and making the sacrifice. It never costs anything to anybody else. There is no expense incurred to those who sit by the sidelines. Therefore, it cannot ever be considered ‘theft” from others who were never involved nor invested in the very process. It costs others nothing!”
