Santa Claus on “Benevolent Government” — Ron Paul’s 2017 Christmas Message

Filed under: Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 10:39 PM (22:39)

Ron Paul

Government is not Mother Teresa.

It’s not “caring,” or “compassionate,” or “humanitarian.”

It doesn’t “help” the poor . . . . It multiplies them.

It doesn’t “run the economy” . . . . It destroys it.

It doesn’t “spread freedom” . . . It squashes it.

Government is violent force.

Either that force is chained down by a Constitution, or like a fire, it’ll spread and burn down everything in its path.

Happy Independence Day — From a 21st Century Tory

Filed under: Correspondence, Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:18 PM (18:18)

My inbox is always bursting with spam —

From: Michelle Lujan Grisham via bounce.bluestatedigital.com
To: Mike Blessing
Date: Mon, Jul 4, 2016 at 3:46 PM
Subject: Happy Independence Day!

What’s amusing about this is that Michelle Lujan Grisham is the 21st century New Mexico equivalent of an 18th century British Tory.

A little histoy lesson here — the Tories were the British political party who were opposed to the American Revolution of 1776. They were whom the Declaration of Independence was a series of complaints against when it was signed at Independence Hall (then the Pennsylvania State House).

In short, they were the Big Government party of the United Kingdom of the 1760s and 1770s.

Doesn’t Big Government neatly summarize the political career of Michelle Lujan Grisham? When has she EVER supported making government smaller, less intrusive, less expensive? Not much that we here in New Mexico have seen.

Grisham has little to no respect for the individual right to own and carry weapons, she’s always in favor of expanding the welfare state, and she signs off on Democrat-sponsored corporate welfare while complaining about corporations being under-regulated. If you’re a farmer or rancher, she doesn’t seem to care if your land is seized out from under you by the BLM, Forest Service, Fish & Wildlife, EPA, or whoever else, just so long as it fits the current Democrat narrative.

What’s also amusing is that today’s British Tories (the Conservative Party, by their own name) are the “across-the-pond” equivalent of America’s Republicans — they advertise themselves as moderate libertarians during the campaign season, then govern as moderate Democrats (Labour Party for the UK Conservatives).

If you want the real deal, then go with actual, brand-name Libertarians here in the States. For the UK, I would suggest either the Libertarian Party UK [LPUK] or UK Independence Party [UKIP]

Washington’s (and My Own?) Birthd . . . Week

Filed under: Humor, Life, Politics — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:03 PM (21:03)

Got this recently from The Daily Reckoning:

The Daily Reckoning – Monday, February 18, 2013

Greg Kadajski checking in today from Baltimore, Maryland . . .

Dear Reader,

Today is “Washington’s Birthday.” Well . . . not really. George Washington was actually born on February 22nd. But thanks to the Uniform Monday Holiday Act – the purpose of which you can only guess at – we now celebrate it on the third Monday of February.

And so, in a sense, the US government now mandates that “February 22nd” actually fall somewhere between February 15th and February 21st of each calendar year.

Yup . . . That seems in keeping with a governmental view of the facts.

Considering that my own birthday falls into this same time frame (21 February), does this apply to me as well?

Can I get a guaranteed day off with pay, as the Posties do every year for “President’s Day” ?
