It's Freedom, Stupid.

With Scott Brown winning in Massachusetts on Tuesday, it's now time to lower the boom. "Obama. stop enslaving us to the State. We don't like it and it ain't happenin'. Furthermore, it's either our way or the highway."

Given that man's nature requires he produce the sustenance to maintain his life and given that most people definitely want to do that and given that there are millions of people with ideas and knowledge who can create businesses and jobs, to be able to keep that power in retreat takes a really ignorant or really diabolical person. It's almost impossible to do, but Barack Obama has done that.

How does one explain such a phenomenon? I think it takes a man with his life in reverse. Instead of focusing on life and the values that are consistent with and maintain life, he has to focus on destroying life and destroying values. He has to have some ax that he's grinding that keeps him wanting to hurt life. (Thinkers that affected President Obama were Marx, Alinsky, Cloward-Piven. All were destroyers. They built nothing. Their purpose was power for its own sake, not power for what it could be used for. Obama's entire life has been directed toward tearing things down. Producing positive results is not something he is capable of doing or has ever done. The only results he's produced are all inside the larger negative aims - namely of gaining political power and destroying political and economic freedom - better known as individual rights and capitalism.)

There are zillions of ways to do that. One that I can think of is to be taken with one's own power and not grasp that to be given the power to lead is a privilege that is continually granted and earned. And living life in reverse does cause blindness and ignorance - which is what we have seen.

It makes no difference what the world is saying about capitalism and political freedom. It works. The facts are in. There is absolutely no doubt about this. Further, the opposite, statism, doesn't work. Everyone is worse off in some way.

Human life dies under socialism. If you want to understand that look up the inventions that originated in Sweden, Norway, Denmark - three mixed socialist countries - and when they were. They weren't under socialism.

Life is not an end for anyone else's means. It cannot be and remain alive. This is a fact. Life is a process whose purpose is to work to live another day. It's purpose is to maintain its life. It's a circle of self-supporting, self-maintaining activity the end of which is its continued life.

We know this. Particularly we in America know this. So when the government starts taking over things, we know that this is not going to turn out well. We can already see that one major fact has been violated. The government has decided to use us for its means. For them, our lives are no longer ends in themselves. They are a means to their ends. This cuts to the very core of what life is and naturally it is going to meet with resistance.

And although we hear them say that they are doing it for us, we know that is a lie. The man that would use another for his purposes is not going to make it better for that person. This doesn't compute. Think about this and see if you can come up with an example that proves me wrong.

There is no alternative to political freedom unless you want to be a slave or a slave master. In the Obamanian Universe, there is no free trade, no amicable interchange among human beings, no peace. It's just one battle after another because the only way to win in that Universe is to get the power - the political power. In that world, the answer is always war.
