Wealth vs. Money

In regards to the term Capitalism – there is a HUGE misunderstanding on the concept of ‘wealth’. Infact real wealth can never be printed on paper – and money in itself is completely worthless. There is a huge difference between these 2 concepts of which I’d like to dispel.

Money is worthless

o-BURNING-MONEY-facebookMoney is the governments way of trying to create dependence on the state. By creating a society that runs entirely on it’s printed notes with an alleged value – the government then makes itself relevant on every exchange between individuals. The truth is we don’t need it- and whether it’s a $1 bill or a $100 – it’s not worth the paper it’s printed on. Infact under our current system, the printing of ‘money’ just creates debt for the very reason it’s worthless.

Money does not reproduce, it does not really increase or decrease in value as a $1 bill will always say $1. Money by itself does not produce anything at all, nor does it labor. What it does is simply act as a medium for exchanges to make the barter system a bit more fluid. This is seen many times in people who win the $100 million lottery, and later we read they become homeless in about 5 years or so. A person who has a ton of money can only become poor because they have no assets.

Commodity is Wealth

If I have a chicken farm, I have wealth because my chickens keep laying eggs, and people07-chickens-provide-fertilizer_1600 are always going to buy eggs. I can ask the consumer to pay for my eggs in money so that I can, in turn go to a milk farmer and exchange my money for his milk….. make sense?

Wealth is a persons assets. The commodity an individual produces for trade determines how rich he is – even though he may not have a lot of ‘money’, why does he really need it when he has chickens?  It is because he has chickens, he can always trade his eggs for anything he wants; milk, gold, money, silver, potatoes, clothes, etc etc. So materialistically speaking, money is not wealth at all – it’s just a product of wealth. If you want to become wealthy, accumulate assets that create commodities.

So my friends with that said, I conclude this simple analysis confident I have inspired you to go out and become more “Wealthy” rather than “Loaded with Money”. Of a truth nobody really needs money at all, its the most useless commodity out there.  Buy assets that produce or appreciate in value not junk, and you too will become rich 😀

I am not entirely with Trump…

Ok I said it, go ahead and shoot me.

I am pleased we don’t have Hillary, I am pleased that the Trump I saw during the Republican primaries is not the Trump I see now. Infact, everything he has done so far has been great, really really great…..

It’s just the fact, I’m not stupid.

I cant forget the mess of never having a policy position before and all the inconsistent promises he made during the Primary – other then the promise “I can change into anything I want”.

I cant help at notice, everything I like about Trump he has done already very early in his presidency, how much is left for him in the next 4-8 years?

mixed in with all this wonderful domestic policy – he manages to always work in growing the Military Industrial Complex… This talk of “Alt-Right” I find very laughable, because I know it’s just a new name for ‘Neocon’.

I also know everything Trump has done thus far will change with the next president. Executive order, and vetoing executive orders – is finiky buisness, there is no permanence.  I’m glad were not going to kill ourselves as a nation yet, but I’m just watching the Democrats becoming more radicalized before my very eyes. Just how radical they will be in the next 2 cycles, I have no idea. That’s what scares me most. I see very plainly what they have already become.

Needless to say….

I’m just not a populist person. I can not just go along with the herd.. There are days I wish I could just shut my brain down and blindly go along with the program…. but I cant.

I like trump, but I wasn’t born yesterday.

 

 

The Snowflake Downfall

So here I am like everyone else in the aftermath of the civil war that was the election. Like the end of every war, the victors are feeding off the tears and blood of the losers. and the losers are wagging in a few last stands before their inevitable demise.

But I want to look at the left a moment a bit critically. They are rather interesting,  especially if you understand something about psychology. They are displaying all the symptoms of  Cognitive Dissonance.

16708244_1135993156522767_6330660173806727441_n

Those on the left never engaged anyone outside of the left. They isolated themselves only with people who agree with them, and promoted with each other out of touch ideals about the world…. In their own minds, they assumed for so long that everyone obviously just agrees with them. So within their own circles, they created their own little reality that never went unchallenged by someone who disagrees… and indeed it often shows, just on facebook – they are not use to people disagreeing with them, they don’t even know how to comeback with anything other then insults, like children.

Now Trump wins the election. and look at the left riot, insult people, burn buildings, crying in streets. Shocked and stunned to learn that there is actually a lot of gay republicans out there saying ‘Democrats don’t represent me’…. They are confronted with the simple fact for the first time, in a long time, beyond any shadow of a doubt that their ideas… are all wrong.  :-O Their entire world view is just a popped bubble :-O

Everything were seeing with the left is what happens when a person faces Cognitive Dissonance.  Irrational angry behavior of people powerless to confront the truth even while looking at the face of it.

On this wide scale case of Cognitive Dissonance were seeing another trend within the Democratic party called ‘De-alignment’. (That is a very bad word in politics)… The party is a sinking ship. Conservative democrats are starting to re think their progressive leaders. Meanwhile the progressive leaders are growing even more insane then they ever were before. So what happens in De-Alignment is there’s a huge divide between the party leaders and the base. The more detached the leaders become, the more they shake off life long supporters.

Unfortunately with the Democratic party, this divide has actually been there a long time, it’s only become noticeable to many democrats once the bubble was popped. Unfortunately the party is not in position to realign – the leaders are too detached from everyday people and they are established in their positions for some time to come….

It will be a long time until we see the democratic party make a comeback. The only thing Republicans have to do is maintain the ability to be “the lesser of 2 evils”, speaking only to the peoples plain reason.

So That’s the Democrats….

 

Introducing my New Website

Its a photography website, all photos are done by yours truely. I was just scrolling through my facebook photos and realized… I’m a pretty gosh darn good photographer… So Why not do this 🙂

https://angelfishphotos.wordpress.com/

I havn’t added anywhere near the amount of photos I intend to. Most are coming from my travels along the east coast and my hometown of Buffalo, NY. From Vermont, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Florida, etc… It will be an ongoing and never ending project, Much like this blog site. I hope you enjoy my writings as well as my photography. God Bless.

The Electoral College

Excuse me for being offended by this wave to take away the Electoral Collage, but I am. Even when Obama won the electoral vote I stand by the system. The reason is because I understand that system is there for people like myself – people who take time to evaluate the issues, the candidates, participate in the government, understands and appreciates the rule of law. The Electoral collage is designed to give me a voice over low information voters, whom vote based on impulses rather thoughts or convictions. So yes I’m offended when a know nothing twit tells me they are smarter then me, therefore their vote means something. The electoral collage is my reward for actively participating and paying attention to my government, beyond just election day. For every reason given why we should get rid of the electoral collage, is exactly the reason I want to keep it. The fact most of these low informed people don’t even know how the electoral collage works is enough in itself to set me off.

No it isnt a democracy, and believe me I’m sick of the media calling it such. Its a Representative Republic. Sadly ‘stupid’ comes in bulk packages in every continent and for that reason the founders hated ‘Democracy’ more so then the Monarchy. ‘Democracy’ is what people get with the oligarch nations of Africa. Uneducated people starving themselves to death because they keep voting on dictators based on last minute fears. Couple ‘uneducated’ with ‘self righteous’ that I have often seen with those opposed to the electoral vote, and you get the equivalent of most middle eastern countries….. Believe me when I also say I’m with the founders entirely in that really only property owners should vote – not whiny little thugs burning buildings and trashing their own neighborhoods because ‘they didn’t care about Hillary Clinton’s emails, shes a woman and she is running’. Not Good enough of an argument I’m afraid.

Hillary herself, ran a terrible campaign knowing full well about the electoral college. She didnt work at all to earn it, in fact 90% of the time she was completely hiding herself. When she crawled out of her villainous cave, all she had to say was condescending things about the people she had to win over, threats about how ‘racist’ trump is, How trashy poor people are… No issues, no policy, no change at all from what everyone clearly hated – Her entire platform was as if she saw it ‘America owed her the white house’ and she could just walk right in. Even the educated democrats agree with me on this point, she was a horrible candidate to run and clearly democrats got lazy.

“Basket of Deplorables” – Imagine that very basket of people are entirely disenfranchised and already hurting and suffering…. Then a presidential candidate comes out and calls them this. OF COURSE Trump won, he engaged this basket and won them over. He went, every day, state to state – talked with people, gave speeches, engaged and explored ideas to adapt his model. Meanwhile Hillary did what? That being said without even mentioning her height of corruption. Its amazing she did as well as she did to be honest.

So no, I have no sympathy for the popular vote, I never have. America is not a democracy, I completely agree  the world should stop telling low informed voters such – as it is false. end of story, this article is done.

The Election Is Over… Thank God

Im sitting here watching the aftermath of Trump winning the election. Some are rioting, others celebrating – the media scrambling to find a new spin or story…. People telling me “They were with trump from the start” as if that’s a badge of honor… In this insanity I feel compelled to gather my own thoughts, though I said I wasnt going to write about the elections anymore. I’ll break that rule but just this once.

I am happy Hillary is gone – That woman was more wicked then Jezebel with the wicked witch in the wild wild west! And to her supporters, Frankly I have no sympathy. You were sheep lined up for the slaughter if she had won. I know because you just don’t seem to have been paying attention to much ado with anything – other then the fact a woman was running for president…. Its the height of superficiality – and frankly you should be grateful you were saved and didn’t even know how.

I’m still disappointed in Trump. Really Republicans could have done better, and perhaps I really should correct myself in the same paragraph. I’m not worried about Trump himself, nor do I dislike him himself- Im looking at the people he is surrounding himself with as advisors. My concern is he is a very malleable person with no set ideas on much ado with anything – just how likely is he to fall for anything by his council? Chris Christie is the perfect poster child of his team. Such an individual weasels his way into this presidency with the worst of bush era ideals like the TSA, and nation building BS countries… Pence (Trumps VP) oh sure hes conservative on domestic policy – Foriegn Policy however he is most certainly a Neocon Imperialist as well…. Trump has surrounded himself with the extreme dark forces of the republican party, yet I suspect he did so unintentionally….. And I really do mean unintentionally, just seeing how they got into his circle.. But anyway, I wont digress where I can go on and on about….

I am ultimately happy Trump won, despite his neocon team of so called ‘experts’. He is one to ignore his inner circle and look to the people’s opinions. He is also, believe it or not, one of the most anti nation building candidates. We will defeat ISIS and possibly bury the cold war hatchet with Russia in the process. Our interests abroad will fade as we focus more on our own interests. I will be interested in who he picks for supreme court. I have no idea what he will do with healthcare reforms, I know it had better not be single payer as he himself once said. I have no idea what he’ll do with immigration, and frankly its a non-issue to me anyway, but I think I follow his general direction and it seems fair and balanced. There are many unknowns, many possibilities and I can plainly see Trump has the potential of being an excellent president despite some or many of my reserves.

IF IT were Different…

I cant help at feeling remissed of what I might say if Hillary won…. and Indeed I thought for a long time she would. I was scared, I really was. The woman was sheer evil – if anything the whore of Babylon herself in the flesh…. Im still scared of the fact this election was as close as it was – watching people riot – most of whom, refuse to be educated on anything, not concerned or aware of just how evil Hillary actually is…. They will be here still in future elections im quite sure, nor is any of this insanity over with….

If Hillary had won the best I could say is my first choice Ted Cruz, would have had a golden  chance in 2020. The government would have been completely stagnant under her leadership as no one in the senate or congress would agree on much of anything from her. Perhaps it is likely, even a SCOTUS judge wouldn’t get through under her. Though despite this she would still have the authority to do a great deal of damage – I dont really think there would be a 2020 election where we could recover. ISIS would be ‘monitored’ and ‘negotiated’ with, meanwhile we would create tensions with Russia and perhaps even a full on war. Whilst with all this wonderful ‘negotiating’ with isis, we would have gotten another obamacare while importing and covering terrorists threats from syria’s health plan. “Nation building” Dear god, Ron Paul even called it, that was very much in the subtext of her campaign – particularly when she was talking about ‘Overthrowing Asad to stabilize the region’… I could not be anymore opposed to this woman on any issue politically speaking, Not even mentioning the fact she belongs in jail.

If things were different, this article would look very different indeed….

The Hand of God Saved America

I’m hearing this a lot from Trump supporters… yet I am reminded the Hand of God can also be judgement not just salvation. Often God judges nations by handing people over to their own desires – those saying this, I have often found guilty of Idolizing Trump. Perhaps in that, they are more dangerous to America then the people out there rioting right now. I am only comforted by the familiar feeling that I know comes to me from heaven – that I did, to the best of my ability, advocate the best possible candidate for this country. Knowing the issues, understanding how government works, taking all things into account and not following someone so blindly as the populace of a corrupt people. Though unsuccessful, neither was Jeremiah. This nation that I love so much, I realize is temporary and not exempt from the ruler of this world. My true home is in heaven and with that comes a degree of detachment from my surroundings. If it is the fate of this country to be destroyed, either by the insanity of the left or the fear mongering of the right- then so be it. as it becomes a nation I can not stand to be apart of. I can barely stomach the fact the constitution itself (our nations compass) seems irrelevant in all this commotion.

My Journey in Vapeing

To my long time followers, may I make a confession? I am one of those evil smokers… Well I was… Now I’ve converted to Vapeing 🙂

What brought me to this new style of smoking wasn’t entirely so much for health reasons – though that was an incentive. I’m a shameless capitalist, and really it all boiled down to money. Vapeing is vastly cheaper then smoking cigarettes. However, I’ve been vapeing for about about 3 weeks now and along the way I’ve discovered some other advantages.

1. I can smoke just about anywhere and people don’t seem to mind at all. Infact people like the smell of my blueberry pie or sugar cookie smoke. I am now thoroughly a human air freshener.

2. It’s cleaner, alot cleaner… When your a smoker you don’t really realize how filthy cigarettes actually are. The ashes get everywhere, the smell is horrid. Then of course there is your tounge has the white sort of layer on it that never seems to go away. With vapeing I had maybe 1 tiny liquid spill, hardly worth mentioning – and when I did my shirt smelled like a very nice cologne.

3. Breathing and holding my breath has vastly improved. I’ve been at the beach alot in my time of vaping here in florida. Over the weeks I just can’t help at notice how much longer I can hold my breath underwater whilst snorkeling…. About twice as long as when I smoked. As for breathing itself, I take deeper breaths naturally… in turn I have also noticed my concentration has improved, I would contend is due to having more oxygen.

4. Oh yes of course health is an excellent factor perhaps for many people. Myself I’m young so forgive me of I don’t really think about cancer and things that much…. However, I look at my older smokeing and see things like COPD developing, random cancer bumps, extremely high blood pressure, coughing blood, and worst of all – wrinkles from free radicals going nuts loaded up on Carbon Monoxide…. I myself would not look very good with wrinkles, if I may be so vain.

So let me just tell a little bit about my start up set up.

I probably spent more then I could or should have… in part because at first I really had no idea what I was doing. It began at Walgreens, I bought a Haus starter kit pen, with a haus brand coffee flavored liquid… That was where it all began. After about a week I couldn’t help at notice the 10 ml bottle was only half full… Which indicated to me my 7$ would last me about 2 weeks, verses say $5 on a pack of cigarettes every single day… Obviously, it proved cheaper to vape fairly immediately. Though I was getting tired of coffee so I said what the heck, I’ll get 3 other flavors and switch it up. 😛

Then my Haus pen met a sad fate… I was slurping my vape liquid instead of smokeing. Not to mention the battery wasn’t really lasting throughout the day anymore. I had no idea what was wrong, jonesing for a cigarette I bought a pack and contemplated getting a new vape pen at a professional vape shop.

When I went to the Grab Bag in Gainesville, FL I was kindly greated and explained to them, “I would like an inexpensive mod with a long lasting battery”. He showed me 2 both under $25, and both were equally impressive, and actually much better then the haus pen I got at Walgreens for the same price. That was when I upgraded to a Joytech eGO AIO vape pen. 🙂

Then of course there was the vape bar, where I could actually sample any flavor I wanted, all day long. It only took me 20 minutes to find “Tropical Chill” and bought a 30 ml bottle at $15.

After 2 weeks with the joytech I am completely satisfied. Since then I have bought more flavors from a different vape shop in a little town called Green Cove Springs, FL ‘Jonny Copper Vapor Co.’… why a new shop? I just happened to visit Gainesville at first, I was staying in the little town for awhile… anyway. I actually liked Jonny Copper’s flavors much better, they were more flavorful and THOUSANDS of options. I took a few several hours there to sample all I could just so I could, I guess ‘discover my flavor pallet’. I walked out with Frigid, Blueberry Pie, Tropical Gold, and Zoltar. All of which were 30 ml bottles with 12 MG nicotine… (am I being too detailed with all this?)

So here we are 3 weeks later. I discovered all I needed to do with the Haus pen was get a new atomizer for it… meh. It is are good pen and I figure I’ll keep it as are spare or back up. If I had known before I may not have gotten the new one, and sure I’ve invested a lot into this new habit…. but I can’t complain. By my calculations I have about 3 month supply of e fluid for under $50 which is still a fantastic savings compared to smokeing.

I would of course recommend vaping to anyone looking to get into it. However I would be remissed if I didn’t include this little chart:

And what the heck, I’ll toss in this one too:

A vote for Blank is a vote for Blank.

This will be my last ever political post on my views. I’ve said all I’m going to say about this election cycle.

“When God Wants to Judge a Nation He Gives Them Wicked Rulers” – John Calvin

 

 

After Being in the Cruz camp for the Republican Primary, all I ever hear after Ted Cruz dropped out… (Come to think of it, even before Cruz dropped out)… All I ever hear from the trumpsters was:

“A vote for anyone besides Trump is a Vote for Hillary.”

I’ve heard this so much so, I swear it’s like going to a freaking parrot store….
The fact is, I will likely be going with the Constitution Party candidate Darrell Castle this election. I have yet to hear any substinent answer from any trump supporter as to “why I should vote for Trump”. I have yet to hear anything even at all from Trump himself which says I should…. Ok I have actually sat down with Trump videos and over viewing his policies and xyz TRYING to like the guy or find even some small reason to sway me… the fact is I can’t, and his followers really are a terrible asset to their fearless leaders campaign. All they have are threats… I mean:

“If you vote for Castle Hillary will win”

“Hillary will destroy America”

“You don’t belong in this country, get the f$@ out if you don’t vote for trump”…

Let me just tell all the trumpsters of the world something. First and foremost, I am saved by christ, there is nothing in this world that worries me as I have the gift of eternal life. Frankly I’ve looked around, this world has nothing in comparison to Christ’s promise of eternal life in the new heaven and new earth. What can man… or Hillary… do to me?

Second, I’m not convinced Trump is all that different from hillary… He’s advocated for socialized medicine, he only wants to lessen TPP not get rid of it, His tax plan has already been negotiated to increase – he isn’t even president yet and all I see is this alleged ‘flat tax’ go up and up and up…. Immigration honestly not really a chef concern to me, he can’t even get that policy straightened out, not even to his own satisfaction… and really he tossed his own base support under the bus with it. His integrity is appalling, he treats everyone like shit, his EGO is unbearably unrelenting to the point I can’t see myself having to listen to him for 4 years….

Then there is the Bernie Sanders people

Can I just say, I was very surprised when I looked into the dilemma on the other side of the political spectrum.
They get the same jive too:

image

Suddenly I have tremendous respect for the far left of this country. We’ve spoken before on several issues, and I’ve often found we completely agree on just about what is all the problems – however both of us have very different solutions…. In that I’ve often found Bernie people to be very easy to get along with as we both can easily see were both trying to the best of our understanding to actually fix this country. We are both frustrated with the same people trying to maintain the status quo and make it sound somehow different. Well its not different, And we’re both ready for an outright revolution.

In regards to Jill Stien herself, I maintain she isn’t my taste for change as I’ve said in another article… However I agree with her 100% on the fact the 2 party system is a disaster that must be taken down. In the Tea Party we have a saying:

“I WILL NOT COMPLY”!

I will not choose between red team or blue team anymore…. I can’t in good conscience lie and say “Trump is better then hillary”, as I have seen no evidence to suggest it… I have done it before for Romney and frankly I couldn’t help at chock whilst I did so. If anyone wants my vote from this point on, I had better hear 3 things as central and uncompromising to their platform:

1. Follow The Constitution in the spirit the founders intended it…. A key word here being “Limited Government”

2. Free market capitalism.

3. Noninterventional foreign policy the specifically conflicts with Zionist Christian and/or Neo Conservative ideology.

Am I reaching for the stars? Is that really too much? Is my list of 3 little  things too complicated or hard to understand?

I should hope not, my standards should be the BASIC goal of every liberty loving American…

As for this threat “Hillary will Win”.

As I’ve already said, my soul is prepared for anything this world can throw at me… including Hillary as president. Thank you for your concern, but I would like to point out more important facts:

1. God promises us tribulations… this world, even America, is guaranteed to be a wicked and vile place that only gets worse and worse…. Your not telling me something I don’t already know to expect with Hillary, or for the matter Trump – and surely anyone coming next round after them.

2. Hillary is merely the product of her donor… I would also go as far to say Trump is a plant in the Republican party, he is deliberately sabotaging Hillary’s opposition. If by some miracle trump actually won the white house, he will be a complete puppet to all his corrupt advisors with their own agendas… He is completely Mailable, a piece of clay screaming “Mold me into whatever you want me to be”.  It doesn’t help his first instinct is always often very liberal either :/

3. A Hillary presidency will be a disaster… Infact it will be such a disaster I’m betting if she won, the democratic party will have no future hope of ever winning an election for quite some time. If Trump won, republicans will never be able to recover, and there’s no way we could get someone else in for 2020…. The game here is counting on the other team to loose by winning…

4. Hillary won’t be able to work with Congress or the house, the government will be very stagnant…. I like a stagnant government. I see what they do when their busy and frankly we could use a good long government shut down or 20 in this country. They’ve done enough damage as it is.

5. No longer will our politics be chosen for us. It’s just over the years I’ve seen the primaries, I’ve seen the way the media spins things, tweeks polls, the RNC and DNC change rules, and so much else to pump up their chosen candidate…. Frankly they need to come down off their high horse, and the only way to do that is give atleast the republican party a disastrous loss in what should be an easy Republican Election…. apparently Romney wasn’t enough, they need a second blow to figure out the constitution says it’s about the People not the establishment…. even more pressing is the People need to figure out it’s about them as well.

What is sad is, my 5 things I can say for a hillary win, is 5 things more then I can say I support trump on… literally the man has nothing to offer a Christian or a Conservative. Infact It doesn’t help he himself told us:

“I don’t need the conservative base, if they don’t want to vote for me it’s fine, we don’t need them”

The Republican party has gone in the way of the Whigs tossing their conservative base out with a guy like Filmore… I mean Trump…. sad. Excuse me for saying so but:

Let’s see who do we vote for…. Jeezabel or Ahab? Beelzebub or Lucifer? The beast of the sea or the best of the earth? Allah or Krishna? Which is the lesser of 2 evils I wonder…. Oh look there’s another choice, Darrell Castle 😀

Cruz the sellout?…

Maybe I missed it. Has Cruz stopped defending the Constitution? Has Cruz stopped writing timely, much needed legislation to defend our rights and liberty? Has Cruz stopped battling Obamacare, abortion, and the liberal agenda fang and claw? Has Cruz stopped leading the charge for a secure border, no amnesty, and brilliantly articulating conservatism?

Trump goes to Cruz, hat in hand, begging for Cruz’s endorsement. Wanting to know what Cruz needed to see in order to vote for him. They meet behind closed doors.

They emerge with six firm, written policy commitments and a exclusive list of 21 SCOTUS nominations with Mike Lee at the top – and people are complaining the CRUZ was the one who caved in?

Seriously?

Sorry – but it was TRUMP who was the servile puppydog begging for Cruz forgiveness.

Once again Cruz defended Supreme Court and our Constitution against a liberal troll and won, and “conservatives” everywhere are crying about how he ‘caved in” – when it was CLEARLY Trump who did all the capitulating and apologizing.

Get a grip.

Meanwhile – For once the conservative and liberal media agree. Trump got his throat slashed in the debate last night.

What a sad day for conservatism. Instead of watching an actual conservative systematically unbolt that lying New York liberal villain – we had to watch the RINO GOP nominee get owned like a failed reality TV show reject.

After Trump’s ham fisted performance last night, Trump supporters are going to have to put in triple over time explaining – “Well, what Trump REALLY meant was…”

At Least a Few Republican Pros Agree: Hillary Clinton Beat Donald Trump

-Thanks for letting me rant.  If you enjoyed it, please share it 🙂

America: The Democratic Imperialist Oligarchy

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—”I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

-Article II, Section One, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution

The United states constitution is perhaps the most easiest legal document to read, yet also the most important one of them all. The above quote is the oath of the president of the United states must take before entering in accordance to the constitution… Literally article 2 is about as long and comprehensive as “Green Eggs and Ham” yet it describes the role of the president. In the very oath we see the summary of his entire role-  Protect and defend the Constitution”

That does not include:
Gas prices
Jobs
Abortion
Gay rights
Red light cameras
Minimum Wage
Dog parks
Maternity leave
….
Taxes on imported doughnuts from switzerland

None of these things have anything to do with the president…. Also, you may have noticed everyone running for president builds their entire campaign on atleast one or 4 of these things… Yet you may have noticed they often fall short on their campaign promises… Simply put it’s because whenever a presidential candidate is running on social issues they are lieing. They know full well they can not do xyz, because it’s outside their jurisdiction. XY and Z is in the states jurisdiction – of which they have no control over.

Don’t be mad at the candidate… the person to blame is the people, we have effectively created a sort of Democratic Imperialistic Oligarchy by our own ignorance of this fact.

Oligarchy:
is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people. These people might be distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, education, corporate, religious or military control. Such states are often controlled by a few prominent families who typically pass their influence from one generation to the next, but inheritance is not anecessary condition for the application of this term.

In a Democratic Oligarchy, such as what is seen today in many countries across Africa, you can vote for your dictator. He then has little to none separation of authority and so can do pretty much whatever he wants. Normally in such situations, the candidate in question is set up in an election where even when he looses he wins because he’s well connected with the competing candidate…. If this sounds like Trump and Hillary to you then I probably don’t need to post this picture, but I will anyway…

What we need to really do is take a step back, confront this issue and ask ourselves “How did we become an oligarchy”

It begins with social issues, and understanding the constitution. I would say it began with Lincoln and the civil war…. Now I’m sure we all agree slavery was bad. Even people waving the Confederate flag in the south agree it was bad. However, the issue of slavery strictly speaking was a social issue and central to the civil war. The fact that the federal government, president no less,  would wage a war against its own states to impose a social law – is in direct violation of states rights… In fact it was the very first time the federal government overstepped itself…
What the civil war left us with was a bunch of laws that allowed the federal government to have more authority over state laws…. That is the pivotal moment, however well intentioned, when America began its downhill spiral into an oligarchy… It only took 1 inch that lead on to a mile, then a thousand miles…. Here we are today viewing the potential president as “solver of all our everyday problems“.

The whole of the constitution is about 2 things

1. Separation of Authority
2. Property
3. The Role of the Government

2nd is very easy so excuse me for starting there.

Property as defined by Thomas Jefferson is every thing in the bill of rights. Including, just as an example of what might seem like a social issue, Freedom of Religion. The reason for such is the founders view was a man’s conscience is his property, the same as owning a house, business or newspaper… In their view, and hopefully yours, however you worship God or not at all its fine as far as the government is concerned as you are doing so by your own conscience. Therefore religion is your personal property, and therefore protected. So you see, the constitution has not 1 ounce of social issues with in it.

To tackle the 1st part “separation of authority” you have to understand the 3rd, the Role of the government.

The Federal Government as defined by the constitution is:

1. Protect property
2. Settle disputes and contracts between individuals.
3. Protect the citizens, either from each other or foreign enemies abroad.

That is it. Nothing else.

In order to achieve that simplicity we finally come to separation of authority. The layout is very simple.

The reason the constitution separates authority is to prevent this from happening

By an alphabet soup full of acronyms and pool of private corporations, the president may abuse his authority in anyway he pleases whilst subverting the constitution entirely. Congress and the Senate are essentially useless and the President becomes a mechanism for our Democratic Imperialist Oligarch.

Let me talk about “Imperialism” for just a minute…

im·pe·ri·al·ism

NOUN
a policy of extending a country’s power and influence through diplomacy or military force

As the world’s leading police force, yes I do mean in every sense America is a Democratic Imperialist Oligarch.

It’s our own fault, welcome to the New American Century.
