The End of Conservatism? = my comment=Depends

April 27, 2009
Heritage Lecture #1120

The modern conservative movement began as a Remnant with Albert Jay Nock and Frank Chodorov; grew into an intellectual movement with Friedrich Hayek, Richard Weaver, and Russell Kirk; blossomed into a political movement with William F. Buckley Jr. and Barry Goldwater; burst into full bloom as a governing movement with Ronald Reagan and The Heritage Foundation and other organizations; succumbed to hubris with Newt Gingrich and Tom DeLay; imploded under George W. Bush and the neoconservatives; and is now wondering whether it is headed for the ash heap of history.

Let us begin our examination of the state of American conservatism with a little history.

***

The link above under the subject is a long one a good read, but my comment below holds up red flags:

 
The pendulum swing into conservatism must provide for federalist foundation and not big government.  If the Neoconservatives want to be a part of the GOP , then stick around , but the days of big government GOP are over.  The difference between socialism and a National State at the Federal level is in name only.  The end results will be the same totalitarian fascist finish.
 
Teddy Roosevelt introduced the unconstitutional owning of property by the Federal Government, as far as I know.  True Hamilton was a Nationalist, but he lost the debate to Jefferson and Madison and we are by law a federalist Constitution.  One cannot pick and choose which law to ignore and which to adhere to.  By doing so, all law is then lawless by choice of a few.
 
"To begin with, it must have a clearly defined, consistent philosophy. It is a given that conservatives of all stripes honor the Constitution and its established system of checks and balances. They agree that government should be limited, individuals should be free and responsible, and there can be no lasting liberty without virtue--public and private.".
 
I have quoted the article above and wish to point out the flaws of reasoning that are detrimental to the future health of the Conservative movement if not corrected.  It is not a given that all conservatives honor the Constitution.  That is far from true.  Far!!!  It must be that all conservatives must uphold the Constitution as plank number one, educating the masses to it's value to freedom and liberty.  It cannot be a given.
 
To agree that government should be limited again leaving the door to big government wide open.  This article is very well written, but beware of the weightiness of it's gravitational pull back to the left, as our party has done since Teddy Roosevelt and before beginning in 1913.  Capitulation is the great evil that has beset the GOP and continues to drain it's true value.  Enough is the word.  It too must be front and center.
 
Speaking of the percentage of people who are polling this way or another by giving them labels does injustice to truth.  Those who call themselves moderate may be very conservative, but have found those who are calling themselves conservative are not so, but are self fulfilling entities.  How has one percent of the Nation come to possess 50% of the wealth?  Why, during what conservatives hold up to be a very conservative era of Reagan, did we see the beginning of a drain of prosperity in America due to the ignoring of the tax structure when implementing free trade. 
 
My hunch is that many of those on the fence are afraid of the corporate elites and find socialism a safer sphere, without a knowledge of what Communism provides, the same thing, less for the blue collar family.
 
As to the current passion by conservatives in this new age of communication will not go away this time around.  Never has our history of America been so dire and liberty and freedom in such danger.  It is the hope of those elitists in Washington that it will go away, but Americans from both parties and third parties are finding common ground in supporting the Constitution as written and are learning for the first time that each State is a Nation onto itself and holding to this principle is vital to our Nation's Truth in liberty and justice. 
 
As to T. S. Eliot, his thought is one of most of history, but to let it rule is a form of defeatist.  We have a set of Laws.  By simply going by them, you have become the winning party of the Future.  Ignore your grassroots now and a potassium GOP it is.

I Want to Change America With Ballots, Not Bullets - Huckabee

Governor Huckabee:

...Barack Obama is the president and he has a right to push his agenda, even though some of us think that gargantuan spending and borrowing and smiling and making nice with despots is just plain wrong.

But he promised an administration that would rise above the old politics of Washington, and thus far, his has been so harshly partisan that one has to long for the old politics, because the new version is stunningly divisive.

According to the polls, I'm in the minority. That's okay. I usually have been. And according to the new and depraved Department of Homeland Security, I need to be on their watch list of people they are really, really afraid of since I'm one of those scary people who believe in God — I'm pro-life, a gun owner, concealed carry permit holder, a person who believes that the Second Amendment is as important as the first and that without one, we probably won't have the other very long...

That's my view, I would love to hear yours. E-mail... huckmail@foxnews.com

Wow, what a busy couple of weeks!


OBAMA'S BUDGET

Here is the best way I can think of describing the over $9 TRILLION dollar deficit our children and grandchildren will be forced to pay off from President Obama's new spending programs...all his, passed by the Democrats...and yes, in addition to what would be considered President Bush's deficit of some $450 Billion.

President Obama and the Democrats have gotten a hold of the government's credit card, raised the overall limit, maxed it out and have given us the bill to pay.  The sad part is that the deficit (credit card spending) is so big, it will take our children and grandchildren to pay off the Obama bill...if they are lucky.


TEA PARTIES ACROSS AMERICA

I joined over 5,000 citizens and taxpayers at the Tea Party are our state Capitol in Lansing on April 15th.  Hundred of Tea Parties across this country with estimates that nearly a MILLION citizen activists came out to express their frustration with the growth of government, spiraling deficits and out of control spending by government in general. It wasn't a partisan crowd and many were clearly first timers who just wanted their voices heard.  Hopefully Washington and the politicians were listening. Newt Gingrich made a scary point about the $9 TRILLION in new debt President Obama is proposing and what it will cost you.

Check out Newt on this short YouTube video talk about the future of the Tea Party movement.


MICHIGAN STATEWIDES - ENDORSEMENTS

I've receive a bunch of emails and telephone calls asking who I was endorsing for Governor, Secretary of State and Attorney General.  I have to admit, I am very excited about the caliber of candidates in the race and I consider all of them friends...so it won't be easy.  But at this time, it's still early and I think very healthy that all of us are getting a chance to see how hard they work, what positions they are articulating and therefore giving us time to make a judgement call as to who will be the strongest Republican nominee to go against the Democrats in the fall of 2010...yup, it's still a LONG ways away.

I expect to make an endorsement and give my rationale as to why at some point in the game.  But for now, this is great for the party - it helps build momentum and excitement, it's great for the candidates - it develops their skills and grassroots organizations and it's great for our state - because we can openly discuss the challenges of how we move forward.  We have been "blown away" and can't afford to keep the tax & spend Democrats in control in Michigan!  I think 2010 promises to be a great year for Republican candidates and I look forward to working with you to get every TAXPAYER out to vote!


SAVE AMERICAN JOBS

As I mentioned earlier, Newt Gignrich asked me to be the National Chairman for American Solutions - Save American Jobs Project. We are organizing a national, online/new media grassroots effort to educate and involve activists in opposing the labor bosses attempt to pass what is referred to as "card check" (EFCA). This effort by labor bosses in effect takes away a secret ballot and imposes government binding arbitration on contracts, again eliminating workers rights to a vote on whether they want to join a union and their contract. You can find more information on that effort and sign our petition here:

QUICK CONNECT USA

A great response from friends and small business owners as EVERYONE is looking for quality service for less. That's us!

So I'm back helping bring new customers to my telecom company that provides voip and data services to small business customers in Michigan. With the economy the way it is, folks are very conscious of their telecommunications costs -- providing low cost, reliable service in this market is key.

See what we do at Quick Connect USA


RAP INDEX

One of my first "business development" clients is the RAP Index, which provides a unique software tool for businesses and associations to help activate their members and employees to become politically active.

So-called "grassroots" software is focused on generating high volumes of less-and-less effective form letters and blast e-mails that flood policymakers' offices with rubber stamp communications. The RAP Index is different; it is an Intelligence tool that employs sophisticated computer modeling and profiling techniques that reach deep into an organization. It scores and re-scores the relevance or influence of stakeholder relationships with policymakers and within their own community. By enabling direct communication from those stakeholders who are personally known to policymakers, and recognized influencers, The RAP Index breaks through the spam-like clutter of mass mail to get the point across most effectively.


Call me for more information and/or check out the RAP Index website here.


COAST TO COAST STRATEGIES

I am providing strategic planning and business development services for companies and associations nationwide. Taking advantage of my extensive "rolodex", I am uniquely situated to help various folks with different projects. You'll be hearing about more of these projects as time goes on. I have a few other projects in the works with various partners. I think there are plenty of opportunities to help move Republicans and the conservative movement forward. Being on the vanguard of using both new technologies and new media is key. I plan on being part of that!


THAT'S SAUL FOLKS

We've been having some fun and hopefully helping you keep informed on my personal blog site where I share commentary, articles of interest and other political information with my friends. Ideas have consequences and I hope to be part of that debate. I will be updating this regularly, but not the daily salvos of the past. Follow the battle and the discussion on my bog.

So follow me at That's Saul Folks.com on a regular basis.

 

MY NEW LIST

I'm putting together this new email list that is much smaller than I had before. So if you know of any activists or interested parties that you think might want to get my periodic updates and commentary, please feel free to forward or share this email. If they send me an email - I'll add them to the list. I hope to send out an email monthly, maybe twice a month to the overall list. You can also unsubscribe by clicking on the link below and I'll take you off my mailing list.

As you can see, I'm staying busy and look forward to working with you.

Please keep in touch.

Take care.

The War of the World currency

The below news articles are foretelling of the battle in the World over a World currency and to whom it will move to, if at all. Presently, the U.S. Dollar is the preferred currency, but the value of this dollar is much weaker then the EURO.

The American currency has been inflated tremendously during this current fiscal crisis. As this truth will finally become reality, will it depress the dollar so much that there is a run on it, that all the Nations of the World holding the dollar will try to be the first out of the gate to shed themselves of the deflation that this inflation will cause on their investment holdings?

China, the holder of 30% of the worlds wealth has a different idea. They want to go to a new currency known as the World Reserve currency printed by the International Banking Community. This currency is already in place, since 1931, but has yet to be distributed. The current debate is to administer 250 billion as soon as possible. But with Europe holding 8 of the 20 seats of the G-20, this prospect is in doubt.

The Euro has resisted the need to lower the currency borrowing by the European Reserve, named the World Reserve when the EURO was created. Though their banks are also in dire straights as the rest of the world, their currency is holding fast and as the world pulls out of this foray of fiscal debacle, the EURO will be manifold in strength.

It is a war of a monetary tsunami. The EURO could fail, the U.S. Dollar could collapse, China could lose much of the wealth. Which way will the world turn? Time will tell. As for what I think? Sorry, can't tell you.

  • But one fact that makes one wonder is Iceland. They are the first to collapse and they are going to the EURO. Is that the wave that will result?
  • Will the U.S. citizen uprising against the totalitarian Federal Government succeed and cause America to isolate from the World's fiscal folly?
  • Will Europe be able to sustain the fiscal pressures of the debt on it's shoulders?
  • Will China, Russia and those outside of the G-20 succeed in a new world currency?
God knows what the future holds once we have one world order.

Tax Day Tea Party

CNN Offensive

Posted: 26 Apr 2009 11:22 PM PDT

About a week and a half ago we put up a poll to see how many folks would cast a vote saying they find the CNN attack on the Tea Party Movement offensive.

We ended up with just under 5,000 votes with almost 100% feeling the CNN attack was offensive. 5,000 votes may not mean much to some, but we consider it a fairly strong statement. So strong, in fact, we've decided to respond with a full scale internet campaign to help us start building a coalition that opposes CNN and those who enable them to spew their hate.

CNN Offensive

CNNOffensive.com is in place to accomplish several goals.

1) Demand a Public Apology
And not just a standard, general apology. No, we want a direct apology issued to the hundreds of thousands of Americans who attended a Tea Party on April 15th.

2) No More Taxpayer Funded Soapbox
CNN's offensive, partisan content is displayed in public owned spaces all across the country (Municipal Airports, for example) and we believe this is unacceptable. We intend to identify these areas and begin contacting local government to have this come to an end.

3) Contact CNN Sponsors
CNN is free to spew partisan speech all they like. We're firm believers in free speech and we're happy to see CNN use it just like any other Americans can. That being said, we the people are free to choose what companies we spend our money on.

The companies who choose to sponsor CNN, in our opinion, choose to support the offensive message CNN publishes. There for, we will choose to support their competitors wherever possible.

Please visit CNNOffensive.com and sign our petition. If you're on Facebook, make sure you join the CNN Offensive Facebook Group.

The Collectivist News - Sunday

Posted: 26 Apr 2009 04:06 AM PDT

The Collectivist News … excerpts from today's issue of The Union News.

Leftwing helps itself to TARP, bailout booty … The same left-wing groups (like ACORN) who complained that bailout companies shouldn't be awarding bonuses to their executives, might be getting their hands on some of the bailout money according to one senator. CNBC's Larry Kudlow asked Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., about that possibility on his April 22 program. The senator had sent out a press release the same day which said ACORN, Friends of the Earth, Planned Parenthood, the Natural Resources Defense Council and Conservation International Foundation, could be receiving TARP funds, at least indirectly. The Oklahoma Republican said the ideology of the people running the country in Congress and the presidency makes it possible for money to get to these groups from beleaguered TARP-receiving institutions. "Well, I tell you what I think about it," Inhofe said. "The problem is we have a majority of liberals running the House and the Senate and the White House right now. And their mentality is you want to micromanage companies, we want to make sure that money gets to the groups that support us." "Now we find out that Geithner was back behind this thing all the time, too," Inhofe said. "So it's that crowd, they actually put money – do you remember what they said, they promised they would use this money to buy damaged assets. They didn't buy one damaged asset. They lied to Congress." (businessandmedia.org)



Latin communists predict surge in U.S. funeral industry … Guess it's time to pack it in, guys. The heads of state of Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Venezuela have all declared that capitalism is, and I quote "leading humanity and the planet to extinction." If we wanted to lead humanity and the planet to extinction, we have no shortage of examples from the 20th century on what to do. We'd just adopt straight-out socialism (rather than the watered down version we have now). Let's take a quick tally of democide in the 20th century. This excludes war casualties, and reflects the number of citizens killed by their own government (from U. of Hawaii historian R.J. Rummel's website): China (1949-1987) 76,702,000 • U.S.S.R (1917-1987) 61,911,000 • Germany (1933-1945) 20,946,000 • Total 159,559,000. One thing that all of these governments had in common (besides leading humanity to extinction) is that they were virulently anti-capitalist. Most of them produced documents similar in moral and tone to the one these jokers just published, blaming capitalism for everything under the sun. That is, until they took power, and began killing everything under the sun, including (and especially) their constituents. The majority of the above deaths were from starvation, an incredibly inhumane way to die. Why starvation? They took food production out of the market pricing mechanism, which resulted in shortages and rationing. Capitalism means the freedom to exchange goods and services based on mutual benefit, and has resulted in the largest explosion of wealth creation and life expectancy since the big bang or whichever day it was that god created earth (depending on your superstition). I do sympathize with a few points from the memo - but of course the authors have it completely backwards. War and Imperialism (despite Lenin's protests) are not extensions of capitalism, but government acts which can only be undertaken at the expense of the capitalist economy, financed through taxation or inflation. Our economy would be much more capitalistic (and much, much healthier) if we abandoned our overseas bases and adventures and let individuals decide what they wanted to do with their share of the defense budget. Capitalism is the absence of government. Don't these people read their Rothbard? There are many very real problems that we face. Abandoning capitalism and the free market will exacerbate all of them. With regard to Hugo Ch├ívez and his entourage, Clint Eastwood (libertarian) said it best: "A guy like him should shut his face." (examiner.com)



Union-backed, tax-funded fraud group survives condemnation … ACORN, the community activist group embroiled in controversy over its voter registration practices during the presidential campaign, caused one of the livelier discussions at the Pennsylvania Association of Township Supervisors' annual conference last week in Derry Twp. A resolution calling for ACORN — the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — to disband was narrowly defeated, but not before several supervisors stood up to condemn the organization. In a related resolution, also defeated, the Lycoming County contingent asked the organization to seek legislation to prohibit tax dollars from being used by nonprofit agencies to perform a government function like voter registration. The resolutions committee had recommended against action on either resolution, saying it is not a township issue. During the presidential election, some ACORN employees were accused of fraudulently registering voters. ACORN officials, however, said those registration forms were flagged as suspicious and those voters did not make it on to voter lists. (pennlive.com)



ACORN, LWV fight oppressive U.S. Supreme Court anti-fraud rule … The bills attack grass-roots groups that lead mass voter registration drives, which usually benefit Democrats. Behind the move is anger at the Association of Communities Organized for Reform Now, the liberal group accused by many Republicans - but not Florida Secretary of State Kurt Browning - of fraud while signing up more than 1 million new voters nationwide before the November election in which President Obama carried Florida. Instead of 10 days to submit registrations, the House bill would allow two. Groups like ACORN would have to register. Fines would increase tenfold. "Those fines can put organizations like ours out of business," said Pamela Goodman, past president of the nonpartisan League of Women Voters of Palm Beach County. Senate Majority Leader Alex Diaz de la Portilla, R-Miami, argued that the bills are meant to eliminate voter fraud. (palmbeachpost.com)



Unchecked power: In the short run is it OK for democracy? … The African National Congress came within a whisker of receiving a two-thirds majority in the national election, according to the IEC results system. The party received 65,90 percent of the 17,680,729 valid votes cast. The Democratic Alliance, the official opposition party, received 16.66 percent of the votes, with 2,945,829 South Africans backing the party. Reacting to the final results, United Democratic Movement leader Bantu Holomisa said his party was concerned about the "looming spectre of a near two-thirds majority". He said the major win brought with it an arrogance of power. "One-party dominance is not healthy for democracy in the long run." (themercury.co.za)
