The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
So.... when someone gets voted into office, they magically acquire adulthood? And when they get voted out, they magically lose their adult judgment again?
those who are allowed to run have achieved adulthood by having the right parentage, having been to the right schools, and now having the right circle of friends and acquaintances because of that.
It is impossible for outsiders to enter that circle, and those within it are inviolate.
In other words, they're a clique, a self-appointed elite.
They're our lords and masters, their will is the law, there's very little (by their own admission and bragging) that they can't do.
That does seem to be, pretty much exactly, what he said... Unbelievable...
You can eat after that? It takes a lot to put me off my chow, but the liberal mentality is up to the challenge.
"In a democracy, the people get the government they more or less deserve."
-One of the most frightening of many scary things the Jewish mystic I used to hang out with ever said.
Which, if you presume that he think's he's entitled to vote on who runs the gov't, makes you wonder how far he carries that in his family life, and what sort of monsters his kids are going to be if he really allows them that much leeway.
Personally, I'd accept that statement from him as an admission that he's not competent to vote, and stop letting him. If only it were that easy.
Dangit, this was me.
That, "stop letting him," bit; It's easier than you think, and I'm pretty sure you know what I'm getting at.
The real problem is not necessarily the moral imperative to take action on this, it's the threshold from which we take it.
Cannibal Pot Ethics does have it's boundaries, even if the the slobbering idiots don't know it.
That's even scarier when the current mis-administration is so child-like, in the worst possible ways.
And, add this to the list of "What if someone had said this between Jan 2001- Dec. 2008...?"
Bill Whittle just addressed this, and did his usual masterful job:
What We Believe, Part 2: The Problem with Elitism
Someone else said something like this:
In Nazi Germany, it was the Fatherland.
In Soviet Russia, it was the Motherland.
In the United States it's "Uncle Sam" and that's as close as I want the old bastard.
That was from But What if Your Loyalty is to the Constitution? A member of AR15.com said in a post there:
"This "homeland" shit that suddenly started up in the last couple years pisses me off. It reeks of the "fatherland" and "motherland" propaganda shit our enemies used throughout the 20th century. The Nazi regime was "father" to the German people. The Soviet regime was "mother" to the Russian people.
"This guy is our uncle and that's as close as I want the fucker.
"I don't need the government to be my big brother, my parent, my nanny, or my caretaker. It needs to maintain public services (roads, etc.), maintain foreign relations and the military, keep the states from squabbling, and stay the fuck out of my life."
Democracy: the degenerate premise that infantilized public seeking the comfort of parental oversight and freedom from their own responsibility in the arms of government ought to have a say in making your key economic and personal decisions.
Apropos of nothing... Capitalism, A Love Story:
I like this version better than Michael Moore's.
If this is the analogy the idiots are going with then let them explain why the parents are stealing all the money from their kids in order to provide these mythical “services” that we supposedly enjoy… Hey Uncle Sam, get a job you deadbeat.
