Everyone knows the Russian NANNY STATE crumbled beneath the oppression and suffering inherent in such socialism. However, in America our government continued onwards imposing more "red ink and taxation"...until...in 2012...America is succumbing to the SOCIALIST BURDENS.
Take for example that socialist paradise: ILLINOIS. Over the years the unwitting taxpayers of that state bought into such ridiculous socialist theory of prosperity...believing their MASTERS were brilliant and had unlimited public coffers dedicated to the FREE LUNCH AND WAGON RIDE of the "entitlement state". Naturally...they were as wrong as the Russians were...and...Illinois is drowing in "red ink"...so much "red ink" that each Illinois taxpayer is obliged nowadays to pay an additional $3399 per person.
Recall Illinois did what the KEYNESIANS said had to be done to perpetuate this NANNY STATE farse, it raised taxes on the producers. In accord with Keynesian idiocy...the idiots in the Illinois government raised taxes by $7.1 billion promising the taxpayers such additional burden was needed lest Ilinois disppear into socialist oblivion as another "failed experiment in whip and chain".
Even though such vast sums were drained from the private sector and transferred to the greedy hands of the politicians...the State still is plummeting into fiscal disaster. Indeed...more than a year after this massive tax increase...Illinois is in worse financial shape with its total deficit expected to increase from $4.6 billion to $5 billion. Rising public worker bee pensions will eat up much of that tax increase leaving a need for more taxes and more spending.
Most of the American people have been observing this SOCIALIST IDIOCY in Europe...Russia...and....now in America...and...they want it stopped! Sure...there are RIDERS who will cry out for "more not less". These people have been reduced to mindless sheep and cattle easily directed from cradle to grave. These people are the ones MOSES discovered worshiping the Golden Calf when he returned to camp with the TEN COMMANDMENTS, (EXODUS 32:24).
There are MASTERS who retain their power by directing such RIDERS as "mindless sheep and cattle" to vote for more not less enslavement. They tell the RIDERS they must support the whip, ignore the cries of the unwitting FOOLS who PULL and vote for the MASTER lest the RIDE end. The RIDERS never suspect...though...they're being used to perpetuate the CAGE...and...eventually will become too dependent to voice any objection to any act of tyranny lest they lose their seat aboard.
As a voice of one crying in the wilderness...beyond Jordan, (JOHN 1:28)...I reach out to you to consider an alternative to this NANNY STATE CAGE model with its "$35 million(+) per hour red ink" FREE LUNCH AND WAGON RIDE entitlement system...a system cleverly designed to compel compliance and create "cattle-like" dependency.
The alternative is labeled "THE ORB" and when deployed* will instantly dismantle this CAGE and RIDE and usher in EDEN with its dynamic and lucartive 21st Century otherwise unhampered market(OUM)...a place where the consumer and not some bureaucrat is queen or king...a place where the producer never need fear the envy and avarice of her neighbor finding its way into some progressive income tax or an inheritance tax.
You'll hear 24/7 the Obama-controlled TALKING HEADS claiming THE ORB will hurt people and eliminate the RIDE. They'll tell you the FREE LUNCH AND WAGON RIDE is vital to America...that without this RIDE people would be left to make and produce on their own without a MASTER with WHIP...that Granny will starve...and...little disabled Billy won't get his "free medical care".
By such omens of doom and gloom...the RIDERS are kept in line and focused on voting to retain their benefits, freebies and perks. What the RIDERS won't understand and will refuse to believe until it actually occurs is the fact there aren't many more storerooms to be looted.
In Illinois, for example, Caterpiller CEO Doug Oberhelman refused to build a new factory there because of such socialist and Eco-fascist bent. Yes...this company could have improved Illinois with that new infusion of capital and jobs...but...why line some politician's pocket at the expense of the company' shareholders was the bigger issue.
Indeed...CEO-Oberhelman asked Socialist Governor Pat Quinn, "Why subject this venerable company to more looting...more raids on private treasuries?" Following along with this decision...CEO-Doug told this BLOG WRITER he'd never come back to Illinois because once socialism takes hold...it never gets ereadicated. He pointed to moribund Europe and the former USSR as absolute proof that enslavement is very hard to delete once implanted.
