Who hasn’t seen the devastating consequences of socialist spending gone crazy in Greece? Were it not for the generosity of Germany, primarily, the country would have gone belly up a few years ago already.
But many more countries are lurking in that very same corner, and now with America’s nearly $20 trillion national debt and uncertain credit-worthiness, and an unbalanced budget thanks to hard-headed democrats, the once mighty United States could find itself in the same predicament if we don’t reign in spending and revamp taxation to improve fairness and revenue.
One glimmer of hope is that we can change course because we’re fortunate enough to have the consequences of progressive socialism play out in front of our eyes, as Europe crumbles beneath the rubble of their insane social policies.
We’re not immune, by any stretch. We probably have the best example in the world of progressive corruption and consequence right here in our own country, a wasteland we call Detroit. Will your city be next, or mine? Or will progressive minions see the light in time to stop the nation’s mad dash to run off the cliff of irresponsibility?
American progressives are the masters of “causes”, think about racism and law enforcement officer shootings of blacks, or the divide between the 1% ers and… Oh, wait, uh, 7 of the 10 richest members of congress are democrats? Crap, that’s bad for their “working class” claims (well, it seems that even progressive talking heads are filthy rich elites).
Then there’s the war on women, the inequality of minority hires, LBGT discrimination, the… well, you get the point, anything to create a cause, that will keep the idiots fighting.
Do you think that Soros and Bloomberg have specifically and directly talked about purposely manipulating liberal voters with lies, misinformation or strife in order to keep them in lock-step line? Some people are convinced that they have a calculated plan.
See, progressives and the sick-minded power-grabbers of the ultra left don’t value your rights, just that you follow and obey. In Europe, a citizen’s very livelihood hinges on the control and direction of the government; there is no “individual” in sheeple. The people (the sheep) have acquiesced to the point that “due process” and “rights” are secondary notions.
LOL I kind of like that. #noIinSheeple.
How Bad Is It In Europe?
In one example of many, let me quote the Gatestone Institute to highlight just this one example of absolute insane progressive policies enacted at the shameful expense of their own people.
Forty years after the Swedish parliament unanimously decided to change the formerly homogenous Sweden into a multicultural country, violent crime has increased by 300% and rapes by 1,472%. Sweden is now number two on the list of rape countries, surpassed only by Lesotho in Southern Africa.
If that weren’t enough, it’s compounded by the rule of these idiots when the courts determined in many of these cases that women “wanted” to have sex with 6, or 7, or 8 men in a dark alley while she was carrying the groceries home! What will it take for people to open their eyes and show some courage to resist the progressive disease?
From the pitch of their roof to the direction that their house faces, from the items in their trash can to the amount of concrete on their property… all of these (oh yes, and a boat load more) rely on the whims and control of the nanny-state socialist countries throughout Europe.
Unlike here in the U.S., where, for the time being, we still have a magnitude of personal rights and liberties that has the world frothing at the mouth with jealousy. Make no mistake, there’s a real reason millions upon millions fight and risked their lives to come to this nation, and still do today.
But, progressives tell you, you don’t need those rights, you’re an idiot and cannot handle them. No, you can’t have a 20 ounce cola, 16 ounces is all you need. Hush up and get back to listening to me.
Progressives aren’t public servants or representatives, they’re a class of people who presume themselves smarter than “you,” and who think, like any good dictator, that they know what’s best for “you.” See the theme here with progressives?
They want law enforcement to be unarmed, like the idiot Councilman Grosso in D.C., yet he doesn’t have the balls to go out there and show ’em how it’s done. Same thing with money… they want to tax and spend your money, not theirs.
What About America?
We have to be thankful for America’s powerful and unequaled personal rights for preventing corrupt progressives from turning us into another herd of sheeple who do whatever they’re told. Remember when Crooked Hillary, then Secretary of State, was happy to blame some random guy and his free speech for creating a video that offended Muslim’s weak sensibilities?
Exactly, they don’t want you to really have free speech, just when and if they tell you to, then say what they say.
How do progressives convince so many people that you can have free speech, even if it offends everyone else, except Muslims? The very idea of free speech is that it might offend, that it creates thought and discussion, reconciliation and consideration.
To not have free speech creates the exact opposite. Free speech is not, in the American way, an invitation to violence, yet that’s what we’ve seen from the intolerant Muslim way, and that’s what the progressives want to emulate? Hmmm.
Well, I guess there is the irony that we only see violence and looting and burning and mayhem at the liberal protest events, but that’s another story and I’m getting sidetracked again.
Free speech means free speech, short of inciting a riot and the other public safety clauses. We’re a predominately Christian nation, yet we “tolerate” those with a different view, that is the power of our American way. Straights let gays protest, atheists let Christians protest… we might disagree but we respect each others rights; it’s the very fabric of growth and respect and what has always made us different, and better.
Islamic ass-wipes were killing Americans in Benghazi, and Clinton and the rest of the Washington Progressive Corps (#WPC) did nothing to help our men and women who were being mercilessly slaughtered, but had no shame in blaming some irrelevant video for offending these scum bags. How sick does it have to get before progressive minions wake up and see what the hell is going on?
The proof of this lack of regard for American rights, our heritage and our values, can be found in the very words that these idiots speak. Like Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) saying
Due Process is what’s killing us right now
as he was talking about renewed efforts to enact gun control measures following the senseless rampage in Miami that left so many innocent people dead and injured.
So due process, that very thing which helps to prevent government abuse and over-reach… that’s the thing hampering progressive goals?
What do you think about a government’s level of power and authority over its people?
