It is a Family Thing

I have a relative that…decided to rant or vent about the state of the world and that… well you can read it yourself. My comments are in blue.

Time for some honesty, and if you don’t like it, tough shit.

Wow, that is a good way to make people receptive to your point…

I have come to realize that if you are a conservative republican you are an absolutely terrible person.

I don’t blame you for thinking that. You have been subjected to this sort of propaganda for most if not all of your life. Certainly since your father passed away. Republicans are however, no better than Democrats in many instances. The difference is, the left constantly vilifies them and Republicans are terrible at their own public relations.

Now the first thought of a person when they are informed they’ve been subjected to propaganda is: “Have NOT.” Propaganda is subtitle. The messages that Republican are bad and Democrats good is repeated often in the media and certainly in pop culture.

The Dems have a single-minded purpose to protect and  expand their ideology. They do this mainly by vilifying any one who does not tow the ideological line (as you have just done to me and others.) See my essay: The Hive Mind of the Left.

The Republicans no longer know what they believe and would just like to be loved by the press. They therefore have no real principals anymore and so cannot articulate them in order to hold a position. They think being Democrat light will get them loved when it just garners for them contempt. So I get why you think they are bad.

The only three things that actually concern you is your money, wellbeing, and the political system that keeps the first two going.

This is of course, propaganda and it certainly looks as if it worked on you. Because their policies do not work and they cannot demonstrate results; statist must have a villain to blame. Every Democrat failed city must blame the republicans, or “not enough money”, for the problems created by their failed policies. They cannot be responsible for their own actions. Admitting a mistake would mean in some way their ideology failed them. That would earn them at a minimum being shunned but more likely attacked as a turn-coat.

Once you die, your house will eventually rot, your car will eventually rust away, and what will you have left behind? You will have ensured that corporations continue to make huge profits off products that poison its consumers and the environment. You will have ensured that it is still nearly impossible for the poor in this country to get any sort of real education or proper food, or for them to have any hope of living a better life.

Oh please, this is ALL generalities. Not one specific that can be argued with. Not really worthy of comment.

You will also have ensured that the crooked people you have elected into office will continue to make deals with these corporations at the expense of the American people for personal gain.

Again a generality but I will take that on…I agree with you except for the fact you are blaming only Republicans. This is rampant with both Republicans and Democrats. Your solution I presume is more government to regulate these dastardly Republicans so the corporations can be reigned in.

It is regulation that gives government the power to get $$ from corporation who must pay either to regulate their competitors out of business, or to prevent their own company from being run out of business. The larger corporations want regulation. They can navigate the morass of regulations with their lawyers doing the work. A small business cannot do this. Thus these regulations limit new entrants into the market…protecting those reprehensible companies and lining the pockets of the politicians.

It is possible for this country to exist and prosper while providing proper education at little or no cost to the poor, to provide food that won’t cause cancer or any other diseases to the poor and middle class, and to have strict laws for corporations and government officials denying them any sort of right to lobby each other for political or monetary gain.

Good grief is there a specific anywhere on this page? Not to mention it is a run on sentence and the last part about lobbying each other makes no sense at all.

But, yes it is possible. It is called the free market. This is a system where people vote with their dollars for the things they like or withhold those dollars for things they do not like.

It is possible for us as a species to coexist with nature instead of using it and ruling over it. It is possible for us to see that this is our only life and our only planet, and we need to preserve it for many generations to come.

Well, OK. What is your plan for that? I’ve seen no solutions in this piece at all but I will give you a pass on that because you have yet to outline any problem other than the falsehood that “All conservative republicans are ‘bad people’.

It truly sickens me as a human being to see the extent of what the republican mindset does to this country.

Again, generality. You should get your thoughts together. This is merely a rant with no object other than to … I guess vent. This is why I asked what set you off.

You are being constantly propagandized by whatever news sources you are listening to. It is all an effort to make you angry and vocalize that, though you have no specifics. Lenin had a name for those that were easily manipulated. He called them “useful idiots”. I am not saying you are but you do not have any solutions either and that is because you do not have any specific problems you are trying to address – because is “all bad.” And it is all “over there…those dishonest republicans”.

I have said it before and will say it again. If we cannot come together as a species for the betterment of everyone, not just ourselves, then we are doomed to fail.

More platitudes I am sorry to say. How can we come together if all you can do is condemn?

Republicans? What you mean is “I am right and you’d better see it my way or else.” You want your leftist ideology to triumph because it is right and everybody else is wrong. Or am I mistaken?

The sort of ideology you represent has been done in the past with disastrous results. It was tried in 1917 in Russia and again in China after WW II. Russia killed about 55 million of its citizens in the process mostly by starving them. China killed even more. These make Hitler with his measly 6 million Jews look like a piker.

So go look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself if you are doing what is best for humanity. If the answer is no, then change it for humanity’s sake.

Hitler wanted an Aryan society. He wanted it for “humanity’s sake.” Margaret Sanger the founder of Planned Parenthood wanted all blacks sterilized for “humanities sake.”

A society with limited government that ensures individual rights and adherence to the Constitution is the ONLY thing that is best for humanity.

I am sure that your vision is not “what is best for humanity.” I am sure you disagree with this because those you have been listening to are those that are telling you that it is the government that must force this into existence. You would be wrong.

This has never worked. I coined a phrase a couple of years back: “Always, always, ALWAYS find the government solution that caused the problem.” ALL government programs except for the ones having to do with protecting the individual from force and fraud tend to have the exact opposite effect that was intended.

Your statement…it was more of a rant, will not get the cooperation you think you need. An open dialogue is what is needed. You think you are right and are chastising those you think are wrong. This won’t get you to your objective.

If you truly want a brighter future for you and humanity ditch the statist, socialist, progressive mindset which has never worked and has only brought misery and death to millions.

Study what made the U.S. a great country (despite any atrocities it may have had). Compared to any nation it became the wealthiest, most powerful, and most benevolent nation that ever existed. You should know why.
