This Is How The Left Justifies Theft

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy, its inherent value is the equal sharing of misery.” Winston Churchill

The Liberal left wing of this country is very adept at leading people off of the cliff. Their favorite method of communication is demonizing the independent achievers in society while purporting to be the compassionate up-lifters of the poor and downtrodden. They target the rich, the successful, the farmers and land holders, the oil companies, cars and car manufacturers, Walmart, the smokers, the obese, butter, eggs, incandescent light bulbs, Krispy Kreme, on and on. They thrive on making people feel guilty about everything and anything that will gain them leverage. The Liberal ideology, recently re-branded as Progressive, is a psychosis that is pernicious and depraved. They have managed to convince multitudes of people that their American way of life is a blight on the planet. They have convinced people that living in America is something of which to be ashamed. They have convinced people that the Constitution was written by a bunch of horrible, white, slave owning, evil men. Turning the American dream on its head, upside down, is their hallmark. Group think becomes cover for immoral actions. Minorities become the tail wagging the dog.

So how do they get away with this idiocy? They use words to convince people they are bad people if they don't go along with their agenda. They use "feel good" rhetoric and spineless followers will do anything to massage their own egos. "Feel good" rhetoric includes things like, " We want all people to have access to healthcare," We are for saving the planet for generations to come," We think those rich folks stole their success from the little guys," We believe everyone should have the right to marry, "We want peace, not war," We are the ones," "Our time is now," etc. You get the gist. So a whole lot of people who want to "feel good" about themselves grab onto this nonsense as if it is the Gospel itself. This is a set up for power grabbing and greed of the political class, and the failure of our country, the likes of which I have never seen in my life time. Because so many people are ignorant about the reasons America was a successful country, compared to the rest of the world, these same ignorant people just jump onto a bandwagon and think they are giving themselves a big ego massage for fixing all of the ills of the world.

So, I have some questions for the people who voted this idiocy into our government. In what society, religion, or ideology is stealing acceptable? Since when is taking someone else's hard earned livelihood your ticket to paradise? Since when is living in America a cross to bear, an albatross around your neck, a jingoistic joke, a terrible burden? Since when?

Yes, folks, it is as basic as that. While you go around thinking that you are correcting injustice, the truth is you have voted for theft by proxy. You haven't corrected anything. You have legalized stealing. You think that if you aren't holding a gun to someone's head in an armed robbery, then you aren't committing a crime. But if you vote for the force of government to hold a gun to someone's head to take away their earnings, then you are some kind of participant in saving people from poverty. You think you are taking the high road, when in fact you are voting for thieves who are destroying the U.S. Constitution and the opportunities for millions of people to live the American dream. You think you are absolved by good intentions. You walk around "feeling good" while you have legalized theft by proxy.

So when you look in the mirror and go to sleep tonight, maybe you could think about the gift you were given by being born into the country who is the only shining light in the world that gives real hope and opportunity to everyone. Ask yourself what you have done to dim that light and turn our government into power mongering thieves. How does that square with your "feel good" mentality?

    When will Americans wake up to the fact that Democrats and liberals are selfish, arrogant people? When will Americans wake up to the fact that the politicians have exempted themselves from all of the problems that they imposed on the rest of America? When will Americans wake up to the fact that politicians possess the very attributes that they demonize to keep them in power? When will Americans understand that nothing in life is free and they are paying with their freedoms?

    I voted for President Obama and I can answer the question

    "So, I have some questions for the people who voted this idiocy into our government. In what society, religion, or ideology is stealing acceptable? Since when is taking someone else’s hard earned livelihood your ticket to paradise? Since when is living in America a cross to bear, an albatross around your neck, a jingoistic joke, a terrible burden? Since when?"

    Since the U.S. passed the federal income tax and became the most powerful, successful country in the world. There was not a middle class in the U.S. prior to that. When citizens chip in (not steal) for the greater good then we can all prosper.

    Tax rates now are lower than they have been in 60 or 70 years. How well is this working out for the country.

    I pay a lot of taxes and that lets me prosper and live in the greatest country ever known. What country with lower taxes is doing better economically than the U.S.?

    • daves

      I know you will all start calling me names now but can any of you give real life examples to show that I am wrong?

    • Liberty or Death

      High taxes and profligate regulation, i.e., government control of the economy, strangles free enterprise, which is the engine of our success. Yes, Daves, capitalism. You will argue that individual capitalists exercise economic monopoly with power to keep the middle class poor and the poor poorer. When government controls the economy (taxes and regulations) all power is aggregated into government. You cannot separate economics and politics. Lord Acton said it well, "Absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely." We have seen plenty of examples in Europe where even well-intended socialist policies degrade to totalitarianism. America has yet to learn that history lesson apparently. Guess we can thank a unionized teacher.

    • daves

      But can you think of a time in U.S. history when taxes were lower and the economy was better than it has been for the last 20 years, on average?

    • sscannell05

      How can the economy be better now. When I was growing up in the 60's my dad could earn enough to support 8 kids. In the 70's I only had to work 1 job to get through college. In the 80's they started screwing everything up (Fannie & Freddy Housing bubble was been initialized). 90's you could no longer tell the difference between the RNC and the DNC. Now in a family of 4 both adults have to work and sometimes 1 has to take a part time job just to make ends meet if they want a vacation every other year and stand a chance to get their children in to college someday. The economy is horrible and it's going to get worse. Socialism (Communism) never worked; but, that's what we got shoved down our throats by a fixed election. God help America; we may just be finished as free people.

    • daves

      You are helping to make my point. Tax rates were much higher in the 60's and 70's. The top rate on the wealthy was double what it is now.

    • cpass

      Thanks! Just reading the comments and wondering what this Daves guy is thinking. If he is doing so well, it is likely he is on the government payroll? He is obviously somehow immune to the consequences the rest of us are facing. Alas. If only the blind could see. The direction we are going is toward poverty for all....not enhancing anyone's ability to live a good life. I think he is missing the point by not addressing spending, the debts and inflation...all of which are blatant stealing on top of outrageous taxation. Anyway, thanks The Frog Prince. Great name, BTW!!

  • freedomringsforall

    We need to unite.

    We need to get these commie, fascist, Islamic terrorist codling bunch of scum
    out of power in these United States.

    Then we need to work our bums off to get our freedoms and rights restored.

    We are the only hope left for this planet and for all those down trodden and
    less fortunate to look to as their hope for true freedom and all that it

    We must stay united and take the hope, the light, and the right of freedom to
    every last corner and dark alley and to every last soul in this world.

    Unfortunately, you are preaching to the choir.
    Hard Core Liberals will never get it. The gullible and clueless masses in the middle will only get it when it becomes in-your-face painful. Tragically it will be very painful also for those of us who already get it. The pain will come as the cost of borrowing goes up for the Federal Government and the US Dollar is replaced as the worlds reserve currency. At that point we will all be living in the Weimar Republic 2.0. Those of us who have studied our world history know how that turned out. For those who don't understand, start studying, the semester started on November the 6th and the final exam will have real world consequences.

  • Dan Miller

    Since when is living in America a cross to bear, an albatross around
    your neck, a jingoistic joke, a terrible burden? Since when?

    Since about now, because President Obama has even more flexibility than during his first term.

    • ARMYOF69

      And, now he has nothing lose, for himself just us WE THE PEOPLE of America.
      We have absolutely no idea where we shall end up in four years, except that we shall be that much poorer, and living the life of someone in Zimbabwe. They, probably have more FREEDOM.

  • mathis1689

    The only problem with this column is that you're expecting liberals to understand facts and that is something that no self respecting liberal is capable of. If they are presented with the truth about something they either attack the messenger or deny and silence the message. To do anything else would totally foul up their self important worldview in which they think that they know everything and that we the little people should bow down to them and worship them and their self-proclaimed wisdom.

      Let alone getting them to even read this article


    Winston Churchill was so right about so many things, and so were our Founding Fathers. Obama won this election with massive fraud and massive stupidity.

      fraud on their part and stupidity on our part

  • retiredmillwright

    Socialists love to spend other people’s money on their hair
    brained ideals. They tell their lies over and over until a lot of people just
    get tired of auguring with them and shut up telling people the truth. The
    government is a special advocate for the green people, who have no qualms about
    evading the true facts about global warming and making huge money to put into
    their pockets. The government is so entrenched with these people that they rob
    the taxpayers to give them what they demand at the cost of many jobs for
    Americans. We will continue to get raped on energy and environmental issues as
    long as the socialists run this country. They are as crooked as a cur dogs' hind legs.

    "So how do they get away with this idiocy?"
    All it takes is a weak, gullible, and distracted population. And that describes todays Amerika.

    • William

      That's why the only solution is for the Conservative states (i.e., they did not fall for Obama's lies) to form a Constitutional Confederacy and permanently separate themselves from the govt-plantation owned urban areas. Let them drift into insolubility because all the achievers have rejected them. While we have a 60% plurality of Republican governors, we need to get this done.

    • reggiec

      This is how they do it!
      The debasement of, traditional and classical knowledge, individualism and independent thinking is necessary if a government is to control its citizens and convince them to accept an ideology that a legitimate education would cause them to reject.
      This debasement must be fought against at every turn.
      Consider this statement by Vladimir Lenin.
      “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”
      Johann Gottlieb Fichte, 1762-1814 philosopher and psychologist promoted atheism and is considered the father of German nationalism stated the following:
      "Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished ... The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen."·
      Have we allowed that future of Gottlieb to happen?
