Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII -

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Corona, 'The Science' or Scientism, Islam, the State, the cult of Gender Fascism, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion...

The New Extremism! Individual responsibility; character; choice; markets; faith.....

Socialism is freedom ! Support the O-Deity or else !!

by StFerdIII


Will the madness never end? White, Black, Brown, Yellow, Purple and Rainbow colored people who want less government; lower taxes; a reduction in spending, deficits and debt; and who believe that smaller government along with private charity and individual choice, is without question the best form of governance, are now portrayed by the O-Messiah, the media and deep academic thinkers as 'extreme', 'dangerous', 'evangelical', and of course as racist and bigoted. Such 'profound intelligence'. The true racists and bigots are those who vote for skin color – such as the 93% of Blacks who voted for the O-Messiah. Or the 85% of Hispanics. Or the Union workers who demonize private capital and gave the O-Genius $160 million in the last election cycle, even as they put GM, Chrysler, New York, and California into bankruptcy.

What the O-Deity and his capering storm of misinformed Marxists refuse to countenance is that the historical record of statism, socialism and Marxism make it clear that they are illogical, immoral and supremacist constructs. This might be the reason why the 'Left' finds so much to love in Islam. In the upside-down world of Globaloney-Warming and Islam-is-Peace; state power is of course 're-positioned' as a mandatory moral, theological and communal program and it is your duty – citizen slave -- to support it. If you oppose the statist agenda you are a 'vile' [insert calumny here]. Never mind that those doing the name calling are in actually fact the exact manifestations of what they claim others to be. Meaning that the true racists, bigots, distorted minds and lunatics are the ones who support the iniquitous and destruction theology of the 'state'. That is obvious to anyone who bothers to investigate either the complete failure of statism in the historical record; or the gaping hypocrisies of Leftists in their disavowal of reality and in their obsessive lust for total power.

Most intelligent people know that Marxist-Statist constructs end in juridical, moral, economic and military bankruptcy and failure. The O-Messiah now sits at the lowest approval ratings in modern history, for a new President two years into his term. All he can do is blame his predecessor – like a child who blames someone else for the destruction he has just wrought. The reality is that the O-Prophet and his cadre of Chicago-Land political operatives have presided over the worst start in an American President's term since the days of the much beloved Leftard and anti-Semite racist Jimmy Carter. Why? Because Americans know that socialism is a failure.

Yet instead of a mature debate on what is wrong with the O-Prophet's program and instead of real solutions to freeing US health care from the state; getting government out of housing finance which caused this last economic downturn; massively cutting 30-50% of the Federal budget; returning education and health back to the states; reducing taxes to increase manufacturing and jobs domestically [firms offshore to avoid the obscene burdens and expenses of the obese state]; we are confronted by little raving minds, calling any objection to the O-God's theology an expression of violent racism. How stupid are these people? Libertarian John Stossel writing in the WSJ laments:

“The Crazy Coalition. Democrats have nada to run on, so they've taken to telling voters this crew of Republican candidates is the most knuckle-dragging and nutcase in history. The press has obliged with stories about GOP "constitutionalists" and Delaware witches. The candidates intent on eliminating America's free market in health care, doubling capital taxes, and running the country on windmills seem not to qualify for profiles in "extremism."

There are indeed many ads up about gay marriage and abortion. It so happens they are being run by Democrats spreading fear about their opponents. To a remarkable degree, Republicans have campaigned purely on economic issues. The idea that lower taxes, less spending and free markets are "extreme" positions says far more about the accusers than the GOP.

How can a program of freedom be extreme? Even the welfare state needs to be privatized. So too does pension and old age security. There is not enough money nor tax payers to sustain the incoherency, fraud and waste embedded in government welfare programs. It is well known that $150 billion is lost in Medicaid and Medicare due to fraud, mismanagement and abuse each year. But if you advocate the reform of 'socialized health care', you are demonized? How ridiculous is the world becoming? As Stossel projects:

Tea Party Power. Maybe all these crazy non-tax-and-spenders are winning because crazy people are voting for them? According to Democrats, a huge challenge on Tuesday will be the hordes of tea partiers lining up to vote. These folks do not represent most Americans, says the left, yet will have an outsized influence in a midterm election.”

Leftists never argue with facts or knowledge. They use name-calling. Ad hominem attacks are the weakest form of debate. No one can make the case that ever more government, spending, debt and eventual bankruptcy is a positive program. So to enforce the totalitarian ideals of Marxism, the statists resort to calumnies, humiliations, and deceit. Marxism is as much a mental distortion and psychopathy; as it is an incoherent political theology.

And who is behind it all? For the most part, and in large measure, it would be the unions of course:

Here's a key fact of 2010: The biggest political spender of this cycle is, as usual, a union (the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, at $90 million). Another overlooked fact: Democrats are floating in money. A recent study by the nonpartisan Center for the Responsive Politics reports that Democrats in competitive districts have raised 47% more than Republicans and spent 66% more. They're losing for lack of credibility, not dollars.

Unions benefit from socialized health care, Globaloney Warming which will force market nationalization; more government; more regulations; and more scampering Marxists and Socialist minds in the White House. One would have thought that the failure of the twin bastards of Marxism – State Fascism and Russian Communism – would have taught us some signal lessons and proven that socialism was a gigantic lie and fraud. Apparently not. The most 'wired' and 'educated' generation in history, is in fact illiterate. There is little proof that we today, are collectively more intelligent, than our forbears in the pre-modern Enlightenment period. At least they knew up from down and left from right.
