I wrote this post over three years ago, but I never posted it. I have no idea why. It seems even more important today.
I have no idea if the links still work, but I suspect that most of them still do.
Original post: And Welcome to RichTakes! On Taking The Mask Off
Obama campaigned that in five days, we will fundamentally transform the United States of America, and the supporters at his rally in Chicago cheered. Why would anyone wish to fundamentally transform the most successful experiment in self-governance in the history of mankind? A country which was formed in a grand compromise which guaranteed individual sovereignty and rights, as well as the 13 former British Colonies who were now States coming together to create a limited federal government which guaranteed the rights of the People and of the States freedom and liberty with safe guards in place to prevent our federal government from encroaching upon our basic, God-given rights?
The wisdom of our Constitutional Republic that our Founders agreed to in our Constitution unleashed nearly two hundred years of progress and technological advancement with little government intervention that those brave souls didn’t even dream of. When government is limited, man’s creativity is unleashed. Our noble experiment created the most prosperous nation in history, and we changed the world.
Have you noticed how Democrats always refer to “our Democracy” when we do not have a democratic form of government? There is a good reason for that too. Our Founders were terrified about a democratic form of governance, realizing that it would always end with mob rule, and further, the former colonies would have never agreed to a democracy since smaller states would have next to no say compared to the larger states at the time (PA, MA, NY, and VA). Our Constitution was ratified because it protected individual rights, and state’s rights. If the People’s rights and the State’s rights were not protected, we would not have created a new country at the start.
In 2016, Donald J. Trump got elected. During the 2018 mid-terms, the Democrats picked up 46 seats in the House and the Republicans added a few seats to their majority in the Senate.
Nancy Pelosi is Speaker of the House again, as I warned, and now she has a hornet’s nest worth of PR to lie about, since a few freshman members of the House are taking the mask off, which most Democrats have been trying to hide for decades. In the long run, they agree with everything about A-Och’s Green New Deal, they just didn’t want to come out publicly about it. It has been obvious for decades. They are all Democratic Socialists, most just don’t wish to admit it. In case you don’t know, democratic-socialism is no different than pure socialism, leading to straight-out communism. As the Green New Deal illustrates, they are using false science climate-change talking points to get to that point.
I am delighted that the Democrats are taking the socialist marxist mask off. I’ve known it for decades, but now suddenly they are bragging about it.
Welcome to RichTAkes! On the Unmasking
If I were Trump,I would have vetoed this, it makes things far worse for encouraging our invasion further instead of taking steps to stop it.
We only have 12 years according to AOC before we’re toast. Yet it will take 10 years to implement the end of the internal combustion engine, end all nuclear, gas, oil and coal energy plants, replace jets with high speed rail, and end cow farting. I say screw it. We’re really talking about ten years of pain when it will be all over in 12 years anyway.
The original FAQs summary which was pulled after one day. It is literally insane.
This looks really similar to FDR’s “Second Bill of Rights” which the New Green Disaster mimics point by point. We should learn from the past.
>>In 2015, fossil fuels accounted for 86% of the world’s energy consumption, and nuclear added another 4%, based on data from BP Statistical Review of World Energy. Thus, the world’s “preferred fuels” made up only 10% of the total. Wind and solar together accounted for a little less than 2% of world energy consumption.<<
AOC also thinks that billionaires need to be outlawed too.
Cow farts were also mentioned in the GND. Cory Booker, aspiring Sparticus POTUS candidate, and vegan says that eating meat is not sustainable. End corporate production, restrict production to hip small farms. Booker also supports the fictional Green New Deal.
She be da boss
>>…neither the candidate nor the reporters who covered her have shown much interest in exploring one aspect of her personal story that recently came to public attention: the fact that she is not legally married to the man she advertises as the husband and the father of her three children. In fact, she is legally married to another man—who may be her brother. A posting on the SomaliSpot discussion board alleged that Omar had married the man touted as her husband in 2002 before marrying her brother for fraudulent purposes in 2009. The post, which seems to have been written by someone from Minneapolis’s Somali community, was quickly deleted.<<
Obama’s “Stimulus” Bill was the biggest 787 Billion dollars waste of money in history. High speed rail was one of the ear-marks in the Stimulus. I think that Texas, Florida and California were targeted. Not sure about Texas, but at any rate, Florida declined the high speed rail from Tampa to Daytona, and the other state opted out as well. No problem, Obama merely shifted the funny money from those states to California, who promptly began the Train to Nowhere. We can’t build a wall, but have no problem building fantasy trains to nowhere at ten times the price.
New York actually passed it. Virginia tried, but the bill was tabled due to public outrage.
She says what most of the Dems won’t, but still believe.
>>it must be noted that slavery was not an American or British colonial invention. The Romans enslaved so many Eastern Europeans that the word “Slav” evolved from “slave.” Contrary to culturally relative thought, the indigenous people of America before Columbus- the Mayans, Aztecs and Incas- all engaged in slavery of neighboring tribes and even used them for ritual sacrifice.<<
I’d like to know what “reparations” are supposed to accomplish. I’d guess that over 600,000 killed or injured during the Civil War should have been more than enough. Do ya think?
>>Finally, reparations- when one gets down to it- is nothing but yet another “entitlement” whose cost is to be born by innocent people with absolutely no history of racism or enslavement given to people who have no history of a right to receive it. It becomes a silly numbers game whose ultimate costs are mitigated by other factors. Chief among them are the estimated 366,000 Union soldiers killed in the Civil War. Perhaps it is they who are due reparations.<<
from last year…
>>Why Raising the Corporate Tax Rate Might Not Help You
Shouldn’t corporations pay more? It might not matter. Corporations pass on their tax burden to you. They will either raise prices or reduce wages. They must maintain their profit margins at a certain level to satisfy stockholders. If taxes are raised, they pass that on to consumers or workers to keep share prices high.<<
Corporations don’t pay taxes, their customers pay them.
