After The Election Conservatives Will Gain Some Control: Food For Thought (Video)

with 2 comments

By Bill Hurst, Let’s take a look at were we stand in this great nation of ours. All great societies (nations of the world) started as protecting individual freedoms, and free enterprise. The fall of the Roman Empire and the Grecian Empire culminated with the burdensome demands of a socialistic and degenerate society…

Republicans, Democrats

A ‘republican’ (a member of what Americans call the Republican Party) favors a form of government referred to as a republic in which elected officials represent the people in governing the nation. It is the most orderly form of government. ‘Republicanism’ also means ‘self government’. American Republicans also are known as conservatives,are on the political ‘right’ and support  the free-market or capitalist economic platform.

A ‘democrat’ (a member of what Americans call the Democrat party) favors a form of government referred to as a democracy in which every member of the population could potentially be involved in voting on every decision that the government makes. This pure form of democracy works in private meetings and small towns, but otherwise is only theoretically possible, and is chaotic compared to the republican way. The word ‘chaos’ is important because it represents the liberal approach to social structure as opposed to Republicans’ sense of order. Democrats also are known as liberals, leftists or socialists and ally themselves with a welfare-state or government-command economic platform.

But there are so-called elections, mock democracies and phony representative governments even under dictatorships. The only meaningful result of any form of government is liberty, and the freedom to live your life without interference from your own government. The achievement and maintenance of liberty is an ‘active’ endeavor undertaken by virtuous and disciplined people living in an ordered reality. Weak, passive and pacifist people are easily subjected to despotism. And in the history of the United States, the longest-lived example of liberty and prosperity in the history of the world, we see the triumph of a capitalist republican culture that is a model for freedom-lovers everywhere.

America is a constitutional republic, not a democracy.

Republicans and conservative capitalists favor a small government and low taxes to promote individual initiative and self-reliance so that citizens can provide for themselves. People who vote Republican statistically are better educated, more technologically adept, have closer, happier and bigger families, are more ambitious, and are more prosperous than those who vote otherwise. Thus they do not want or need the government to tell them how to live. The Republican party fares best among the self-reliant people in suburban, small-town and rural America on whose intelligence and discipline our nation – and the world economy – has been built.

The core of conservative ideology is individualism, which the competent, disciplined person is capable of caring for himself or herself, and for the lives of their families. The family itself represents individualism because it is the smallest, most natural and strongest unit of society above the lone person. Conservative individualism is a positive trait deeming that people will work to be self-reliant and positive in outlook; will depend on nobody else; and will contribute to the community through those traits, not expecting anything from the community.

Working together with the concept of individualism is the free-market capitalist economic system of risks and rewards, which says that those who take the risks are eligible for the rewards And while a static, theoretical analysis – on which all socialist theory is based – would consider that a risk/reward system would produce an equal number of winners and losers, history has shown that risk/reward capitalist systems produce high levels of economic growth while risk-less socialist/communist always systems shrink and die, and ultimately provide opportunity for none.

Conservative Republicans believe in everything that America’s Founding Fathers desired – free-market capitalism, individual initiative and reward, private property rights, a moral and religious populace, majority rule, and a rejection of the welfare state and wealth redistribution. And the American Revolution originally was fought in order to free us from unreasonable taxation.

Socialism, however, is an urban and academic phenomenon that seeks higher taxation, and favors the idea that people rely not on themselves but on government for the necessities of life. This is part of the contrary socialist mindset: To disagree with the principles of rational individualist capitalism. Every tenet of socialism is diametrically opposed to the wishes of the Founders of our nation.

One of the core premises of socialism is utterly false, that all people have roughly equal abilities and that it is thus the duty of the government to distribute wealth equally and to ‘level out’ the ‘playing field’ of life so that everyone gets their equal opportunity. Socialism actually is a system in which risk is eliminated by government. But socialism historically has created suffering by failing to account for human nature, by forcing people into theoretical economic systems concocted and operated by urban and academic intellectuals, systems that deprive productive people of the fruits of their labors, and of the natural incentive of simple economic reward.

Socialism represents the institutionalization of mediocrity and conformity. It stifles individual creativity in favor of collectivism and consensus thinking, and thus socialist societies never have and never will produce great art, architecture, literature, philosophy, technology etc.

There is no objective truth in socialism, no ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. For socialists, opinion is everything, and this is why their ideology is prevalent on college campuses, where opinion is all, and thus all opinions are considered valid. This is one of most crucial ways in which leftist socialism works to refute a central principle of rational conservatism which says that there is right and wrong, and that universal truths exist.

Socialism forever is proclaiming itself to be mankind’s savior and a friend of ‘the little guy’ but in fact it is capitalism that repeatedly has turned out that way because capitalism is the only system that creates wealth. Even the anti-capitalist United Nations in its 2002 Human Development Report stated that world poverty fell 20% between 1990 and 1999, an era when aggressive globalization (free-trade capitalism) was spreading at a pace unequaled in the entire 20th century. Poverty fell most markedly in India and China where, respectively, radical socialist and outright communist governments had controlled and smothered the economies for decades.

Socialism creates no wealth; it consumes, dissipates and destroys wealth. It is anti-business. It is a system of government control that only redistributes existing wealth. In fact, every time wealth is created, there is a leftist to complain – environmentalists complain about the pollution; college professors complain about the profit you’ve made; union activists complain about the wages paid. In other words, the focus is on the negative.

Since it creates no wealth, the heart of socialism is the appropriation of wealth through taxation, patronage and cronyism. Since their system creates no wealth, socialists are infinitely more obsessed with wealth than capitalists. And since socialism creates no wealth while its mission is to redistribute wealth, socialism is by nature paradoxical. This is why socialism always produces the opposite result of its stated ideals.

It is crucial to remember always that socialists are interested in helping “the poor” or “the environment” only to the extent that the systems they set up first transfer wealth and power to the socialist élite itself and to its unproductive allies (i.e., government bureaucrats, trial lawyers, environmental organizations and activists etc.) who work to keep the élite in power. This all happens while consuming wealth, not producing it.

Since it creates no wealth, the life force in socialism comes from controlling the lives of other people. Therefore political power is everything to the socialist. That is why they devote their lives to building political machines and winning elections by any means possible, because that is the only way that the socialist can feel that he is contributing to society, by influencing that society through legislation, patronage and bureaucracy.

And this is why the economically declining states in the Northern Tier of the United States from Michigan to Maine increasingly are Democrat. As productive people (conservatives, Republicans) leave for greener pastures in the South and West, Democrats stay behind to keep the bureaucratic government jobs that they are made for, to lord over a weaker and poorer population, without challenge.

And since they create nothing, socialists must take control of as many institutions as possible, once the hard work of building those institutions (corporations, the media, the universities, the arts, the nonpartisan judiciary, churches, foundations) has been completed. One example: Atheist, pro-abortion feminist Patricia Ireland was hired in 2003 as CEO of the Young Women’s Christian Association, an organization started during the Civil War and built on years of good deeds by caring Christian women. Ireland formerly was president of the National Organization for Women. (She was fired on October 20, 2003 after her leadership was deemed inappropriate in light of YWCA history.)

This is how socialists work – one person at a time, they insinuate themselves into healthy, conservative institutions that represent discipline and order. Once like-minded people within those institutions reach a numerical tipping point, socialists begin to dictate those institutions’ policies. Even traditional purely democratic institutions like Vermont’s old-fashioned annual town meetings began to be taken over as far back as the late 1960s by leftists who had moved into the state, primarily from New York City. They turned meetings that once focused in true democratic fashion on local issues like road repairs and town budgets into one-sided harangues over nuclear power, US foreign policy, military spending and all the other favored issues.

Individualism is a bad word to liberals. Yet they preach another type of individualism which is the polar opposite of that espoused by conservatives. It is a feminine self-centeredness or an insecure narcissism, where the person considers himself or herself to be the most important entity in the world exclusive of others and of the community at large, and focuses only on how the world can cater to his or her needs, pleasures, emotions, weaknesses and phobias. This creates an uncertain and dependent society that can be catered to by a centralized élite that manifests these same attributes.

Federal Land Grab Will Bypass Congress (Video)

with one comment

By: Bill Hurst, Government Agencies Are Creating Sub-Oligarchies or Self-directing Bureaucracies!

Walt Minnick’s gimmick, posing as a conservative, will not pass the smell test with conservative Idaho any longer. He has supported the liberal agenda of Pelosi and Reid. If we fire Minnick we will have a better change in firing Pelosi….

I have mentioned before that congress is being bypassed more frequently, resulting in diminished authority at every turn of the bureaucratic corner. This fact, is pointed out in some detail in this article  The 9th Circuit’s Ruling About The AZ Immigration Law (Video).  It’s obvious that our Democrat controlled congress is letting this happen.  Soon the presidency and the judicial branches of the government will gain full governing control, dictating laws and policies based on their  liberal ideologies and agenda.  A group of citizens or “constituents” are represented by a congressman and a senator he/she is usually aware of  the will and needs of that population thus he/she should represent that will and those needs of the citizens in our nation’s capital. Our government continually bypassing congress, will leave them further out of touch with the citizens of the country.

Thanks to Terresa Monroe-Hamilton and her blog and the Gateway Pundit ; this video came to light as I finished this article. It validates what I have stated here in this and other articles on my blog:

The Federal Government now owns the largest insurance company in the world (IGA) and the largest auto manufacturer in the world (GM). Why not go after the land and take it out of private ownership and socialize our farms, ranches, private forest lands and homes. This sounds like the ever encroachment of our liberal government to move us closer to total socialism.

Federal Government Planning Another Land Grab?

Look at this video see what you think……

This is not unlike the situation at Lake Lowell here in Canyon County, Idaho; where the Bureau of Reclamation (which is a kin to the BLM) wants to eliminate boating and other recreational activities on the lake. Lake Lowell is a man-made lake constructed over 100 years ago and its sole purpose is to provide an irrigation reservoir for area farmers.  Oh yes, they want public comments, however the agency has stated over and over again that the lake  and surrounding area are mandated as wildlife refuge first and foremost because that’s what’s the “plan” calls for. Congress did not mandate that policy, the Bureau of Reclamation created and approved the plan unilaterally. Thus deciding what is best for wildlife and the local subjects are too stupid  to do it on their own. (see related article here) EPA is another out of control government agency gone on a bureaucratic stroll which has led these agencies away from any control of congress an elected governing body. Leaving these agencies and others, without transparency or oversight  making unilateral decisions based on their own liberal views and not the “Rule of Law” or the will of the people.

Help us take back control of our government. We need a strong conservative congress to do this. Congress represents the people, so we need our Representatives to serve us and not the bureaucracy.

These videos might deal with simplistic ideas but why complicate things!

Some of these programs may be well intended; if it was your own money (which it is by the way) would you spend it like this.

The Chinese study was to help prevent the spread of HIV so some have been critical of this video, what do you think?

Are The Democrats Conflicted Or….(Video)

with one comment

By Bill Hurst-

The Rise & Fall Of Socialism In America

¯One can only hope that this is the case and the majority of Americans will be heard by voting this November 2nd.  Or is this “Conflicted” time for the Democrats just another layer of the old “Blue Dog” trick play. We have to remember this; they are all on the same team and will go into a majority huddle in Congress and when they come out, they will be swing their big liberal axe and slash away at the Republic with more social-welfare spending programs. Here is a “news-flash”- government does not generate wealth. Government does however, take from those that do produce wealth within a free-enterprise system. Here is a little fable, a truism of the Democrats  tax and spend programs, you know the one about the goose and golden eggs:

A man and his wife owned a very special goose. Every day the goose would lay a golden egg, which made the couple very rich. “Just think,” said the man’s wife, “If we could have all the golden eggs that are inside the goose, we could be richer much faster.” “You’re right,” said her husband, “We wouldn’t have to wait for the goose to lay her egg every day.” So, the couple killed the goose and cut her open, only to find that she was just like every other goose. She had no golden eggs inside of her at all, and they had no more golden eggs.

Moral: Too much greed results in nothing

There are many folks that feel they too are being tapped to the limit.  No wonder the American people are pushing back and saying “We Have Had Enough”! Who wants to end up in the broiling pan?

From My Friend Hubert Osborne:

Just got one of those calls from a live person who put on the canned speech about protecting our 2nd amendment rights from the likes of Obama, Pelosi and Shummer and could they count on me for more money? I asked who they were supporting in Idaho’s 1st district since Minnick voted for Palosi. He couldn’t find it. I then asked who they were supporting in Nevada’s Senate race–uh uh I can’t find that either sir. I then proceeded to down load on him in my best intimidating voice and told him that no endorsement meant consent for the status quo and they better get with the program or they were going to lose mine and many other supporters. grrrr. grrrr grrr

Hubert way to go: keep them on their collective toes! It goes along with they won’t say! and the where are the Democrats? The solution is very simple; don’t send any Democrat back to Washington D.C.

Pelosi to Reid: Take a lot Harry he can make more!

The 9th Circuit’s Ruling About The AZ Immigration Law (Video)

with 2 comments

By Bill Hurst, “The Troublesome Conservative”, Rush’s comments will validate what I have to say…

This liberal-socialist administration is on the move. In an article Protected..Non-Citizen Status ,  I mentioned that the current administration used the liberal seated justices to stop States Rights, in dealing with Arizona’s new immigration law. It goes a bit further than just using the liberal judicial branch of the government to wield the ugly “Angle of Death” upon conservatives and the citizens of a sovereign state. The point being that laws were justly legislated and supported by the citizenry of that state then the angel of death swooped in.  Duly authorized and legal legislation is being challenged by the federal government, not congress, but the executive branch of the government using its influence with the courts.

Where is this leading to? It will lead to a unilateral centralized power for the President giving him unbridled enforcement power.  The President can freely use the U.S. Attorney General and the Judicial Branch to launch “investigations”, injunctions, and rulings.  These actions will tie up states, business, and private individuals in federal court for years. These maneuvers will drain resources of the conservative coalition to the point of ineffectiveness.   This administration will effectively gain a centralized ruling branch dictating their social agenda on U.S citizens by making states succumb to total Statism by the Presidency. States will become mere distributive arms of social programs dictated by the Presidency.

You are thinking, what about the congress? Congress will eventually be neutered. Power is being slowly stripped from the legislative branch. Those duly elected by the people to represent the body of voting continuance, Congressmen representing the desires of the constituency and their collective interest to the republic. Point in fact the Democrats, with the urging of the President, tried to use “self-executing rule” or a “deem and pass” to wrangle a multi-billion dollar socialized health care bill through without the vote of the full House of Representatives.

The liberal-socialistic federal courts will effectively make conservative legislation “law non grata.” The federal courts will halt tax cuts, spending cuts on social programs etc. making these decisions based on liberal philosophical jargon and not on constitutional law.  The liberal president with his socialistic plans, has the Veto stamp which will play havoc on a conservative congress that can not muster a 2/3 majority.  These processes will undoubtedly make  a conservative congress ineffective….give a listen!

By Bill Hurst, Try holding Idaho’s Liberal  feet to the fire…”Minnick Myth”  He is part of the Obama, Pelosi, Reid Statism-Socialist government problem.

Idaho’s proven Conservative Leader is Raul Labrador, he will fight; to strengthen our economy,  for new jobs, to bring industry back to America, will protect the taxpayer from an over burdensome social programs and the wasteful bureaucratic spending. You will be able to hold Congressional Candidate Raul Labrador accountable, because he will hold our out-of-control government accountable.

Statism-Socialism At Work Folks…Proof Of Errors Being Preached!(Video)

William Hurst, EA

By Bill Hurst, these are the people who Idaho’s Liberal, posing as a conservative, associates with. He is right for Idaho…”Minnick Myth “We can thank the Lord for men like George Will!”

Conservative Commentator George Will

I thought Rush Limbaugh had this guy Robert Reich run out-of-town a few years ago…I remember Limbaugh had him on the ropes several times in the past. Well it looks like Obama, Pelosi and Reid have Reich out stumping Health Care Reform. Come on folks this is the “birth to grave” here let me give you what you need…be happy don’t worry attitude, from the Statism-Socialistic movement that is going on in our country now and I mean TODAY. Now think real hard…  these  people want you to feel small and insignificant, his is how they take control folks, don’t believe for a second they want you to have choice or your fee agency -freedoms.

This is a video clip from ABC’s This Week where George Will blows a big hole in a couple of Reich’s  statements for health-care reform. First, Will refutes the idea of big annual profits for health care insurers. The insurer’s profits run between 2-6%, depending on the year. Computer manufacturers with their thinning margins, even with fierce competition, profit margins are 20-25%. This is 5-10% higher than the health insurers! Will then delivers the mortal blow on Reich’s arguments and the basic assertion that Americans are just too stupid to know what they need:



We here, in Idaho need to help crush the  STATISM way of thinking in our government.  We should be able to do a few simple things, like help by volunteering or donating financially to stop the socialism avalanche approaching our doorways,  the burden taxpayers may never recover from!
