Thanksgiving 2007

Posted by RightWingRocker on November 22, 2007

Posting has been light lately because of a new job.  I’ve also started an internship at the school from which I recently graduated, so even a lot of evenings are being eaten up …

Still, I have no intentions of falling silent at this critical time in the history of our great Nation, and I hope all of you will hang in there and keep the RWRepublic strong.  There’s a lot to do.  Hitlery must be beaten, a Federalist must be elected, socialism must be stopped – and that’s just the beginning!

On the musical front, we just booked our New Year’s show in Atlantic City, NJ.  It’s going to be awesome.  Plus, there’s all the church work I typically do around the holidays, which is also going to happen as usual.

Today, however, we celebrate Thanksgiving, which, behind Independence Day, is probably the single most important holiday our Nation celebrates.  Wouldn’t it be nice if Americans today would learn the same simple lessons learned nearly four centuries ago??

So here are my usual Thanksgiving links.  I haven’t added any new ones for obvious reasons this year, but these are incredibly important, so enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Forcing Constitutional Debate at RWN

Posted by RightWingRocker on November 9, 2007

Yesterday, I spent considerable energy arguing with a bunch of liberal morons over at RWN. John correctly brought to the fore the ideology of Norman Thomas, an American socialist from the 1920’s, who basically said that Americans would never accept socialism unless its name was changed – to liberalism. Once this happened, just about any socialist concept could be applied, even here.

Thomas, who ran for President six different times, understood the power of incrementalism. He knew that a socialist agenda in America could only be pursued with the use of deception and half measures, until one day Americans would wake up in a socialized state.

Well, wasn’t that the truth?

American liberals have fallen for Thomas’s passion hook, line, and sinker. Since the post was drawn up in the face of a debate on Hitlerycare, liberal commentors jumped at the chance to defend it. Conservatives fell for their game, unfortuantely, trying to defend the country against this foolishness by arguing on the libs’ terms – in other words, trying to demonstrate why Nationalized Socialized healthcare is such a bad idea compared to why the libs thought otherwise. No one brought up its blatant unconstitutionality.

Until I entered the debate.

Go read the thread. It’s quite enlightening. Here’s the link again.

Over the course of the debate, I was able to get the libs on record as either saying or implying:

1. That socialism is allowed in the US under the general welfare clause of Article 1, Section 8,2. That socialist non-solutions are better than real free-market solutions to problems that were largely a result of socialism (e.g. healthcare regulations).

3. That the cost of lawsuits and malpractice insurance doesn’t drive up the cost of healthcare more than the price of medicine.

4. That government regulation is a good thing, especially for the healthcare industry.

5. That people with BDS are right.

6. That James Madison would advocate socialism and/or nationalist socialist healthcare.

7. That James Madison and the Founding Fathers are irrelevant.

8. That George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and others would have a problem with acknowledging James Madison’s contributions to the US Constitution.

11. That adhering to a “rock solid” Constitution is akin to totalitariansim.

I left out 9 and 10. Seems a lib or two had a problem knowing the difference between the 9th and 10th Amendments. I just don’t want to confuse people – ya know??

The conservatives largely left me to work my magic and came to defend the Constitution after I left the thread.

This is the most important thing we conservatives can do to defend our great nation against the liberals who seek to dismantle everything that has made her great. Far too often we argue on their terms. Why? Their terms are FLAWED. Their terms are BULLSHIT. Their terms are IRRELEVANT.

As long as the Constitution is the law of the land, it must be defended against all enemies. Many of these enemies are holding public office today. These people must be defeated, regardless of their branch of government. The Founders’ vision, as enshrined in the Constitution, MUST prevail.

In order to defeat the socialist liberal onslaught that threatens our country, we must be sure to argue on Constitutional grounds. We must be prepared to use the Constitution in her defense. We must be prepared to call socialism what it is: SOCIALISM. We must be prepared to defend ourselves against these accusations of advocating totalitarianism with facts about real totalitarians and what they advocated.

This is an EASY argument. It takes little or no effort. If you want to defend the Constitution, just know it. Read it. Read the Federalist Papers – AND the Anti-Federalist Papers. Know what the Founders said in its defense. Know why the liberals are full of it and show them. If you like, give them plenty of rope and let them hang themselves as I did yesterday.

This is, I believe, the biggest problem with the way conservatives confront liberals today. There seems to be some need to debate the liberals on the facts of the argument e.g. how much nationalized socialized medicine will cost or how it will affect the choices available as opposed to whether the federal government really has any such authority to begin with. The people of the USA need to be re-educated about the Constitution and what it says, and you know damned right well the schools aren’t going to do anything about it.

If we don’t bring the Constitution back to the front lines of the fight, we are going to have serious problems winning it. If we do, we will win every time. Powerful thing, that US Constitution. Powerful thing. The perfect tribute to the minds that created it.

Letting the Cat out of the Bag

Posted by RightWingRocker on November 7, 2007

More than just for fun, over the last month or so, I’ve been baiting the hook for liberal assholes who want to come on here and call me a Nazi. Once I started showing the seriousness of my cause, they cowered, as expected. The following posts were part of the deal:

Annoying liberals
You’d Think They’d Be Proud
A Reasonable Liberal

and

A Few Questions

The Hitlery quiz was simply an opportunity to show exactly where she stands on things that matter to people who respect the Founders’ vision and their creation, which is today the greatest nation the world has ever experienced, despite the Left’s attempts to dismantle it.

On to the posts…

If it wasn’t obvious to you that I was getting at some underlying point about the positions taken by the Left (including Hitlery) today, it will be now. If you are sick to death of being called a Nazi for being conservative, hold your head up high today, and gloat.

Just about all of the things I pointed out and asked our liberal friends to defend were taken DIRECTLY FROM THE GERMAN NAZI PARTY PLATFORM. Some points, such as gun control, were taken from the US Constitution, just to throw people off the scent.

About two years ago (probably only Ol’ BC and Sage have been around long enough to remember this), I posted a point-by-point comparison of the Nazi Party Platform and positions typically taken by American liberals and conservatives. Of the 25 points in the platform, liberals matched on seventeen of them. Conservatives matched on three. This is how I knew I had the libs dead to rights with these posts. My only regret is that the only one to come around defending this stuff was someone who, though misguided, never resorted to being a loudmouth or an asshole. Oh, how much fun it would have been to wield the ClueBat then!

That’s right, my friends. If you took my little quiz this week and answered “a” to any of those questions, you were agreeing with the Nazis. My answers, of course, were “b” across the board.

Really. The only places American conservatives would actually agree with the Nazis (shit, even a stopped clock is right twice a day) would be:

* that only citizens of the country should hold public office,
* abolition of taxes on land (conservatives would call this “a good start”),
and
* outlawing child labor and abortion.

That’s about it, folks. Creaming the argument that conservatives are Nazis is easy. What most of us forget is that it’s even easier to make the point that our opponents are more Nazi-like than we are. This point needs to be made more often.

That’s why we call her HITLERY.

A Few Questions

Posted by RightWingRocker on November 3, 2007

I had a few thoughts this week, and wanted to see if I could put together a little quiz, since there are so many on the Internet today …

2. a. The US government should be responsible for elevating national health standards.
b. Americans would be better served with less government intervention in the health system.

4. a. Business should be heavily taxed, regulated, or controlled outright by the government.
b. The government should avoid involvement in any business matters.

5. a. Freedom of religion for all religious denominations is ok so long as they do not oppose the moral senses of any non-religious person.
b. Thre should be no restrictions on the freedom of religion.

6. a. Anything that can be done to help Social Security do more for seniors should be done, and without hesitation.
b. Social Security was a bad idea in the first place, and should be done away with.

7. a. We should insist upon a healthy middle class and its conservation.
b. The middle class is completely capable of maintaining its own economic health, as well as increasing its prosperity on its own.

8. a. For the purposes of public utility, it is acceptable for the government to expropriate land from private citizens, as was done in Kelo v. New London.
b. Kelo v. New London was an unacceptable violation of citizens’ constitutional rights.

9. a. We should substitute a common law in place of the materialistic world-order that has been brought about by American capitalism.
b. There is nothing wrong with a little materialism in life. It does a body good!

10. a. The US government should be responsible for our whole national education program, to enable every capable and industrious American to obtain higher education.
b. The US government would be wise to vacate its current involvement in the education system, and leave the business of educating kids to the States.

Just curious to see how my readers, liberal and conservative alike, think. Please answer in the comment area.

Thanks!
