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 Socialist Barbarians and their lies - never, ever, cut Governmental spending!

The wailing's of the incoherent and quite insane.

by StFerdIII

 Government has doubled in size in the past 12 years. 2000 must have been a dark, grimy, dirty, immoral age indeed. Millions of children roaming the streets, no hospitals, old people dying of hunger over their empty cans of dog food, broken roads, plugged sewers, no sunlight, and nothing but locusts, mice and frogs. Since 2000 in every major industrialized country, governmental spending has doubled along with debts both declared and unfunded. The doubling is due to a massive increase in health, education, pension, and welfare budgets. The US now spends $60.000 per poor household. [link] Those Americans are certainly heartless [why isn't the total $100.000?]. The military by contrast has shrunk.

Surely 2013 is therefore a socialist nirvana and paradise ? Who but a neo-con racist-fascist who hates the old and sick, would dare cut a single dollar from the budget of angels, saints and harp players in government ?




Federal US Government spend

$1.8 billion

$3.7 Trillion [even after the so-called 'cuts']

Total Government size as a share of GDP – includes regulatory costs but not unfunded off the balance deficits




GDP spend per capita






[US spending]

Back in the barbarism of the early 2000s governments in the US only spent $5.200 per person. By the end of 2013, even with the 'massive' $85 billion in 'cuts', which only cut the increase in governmental spending not the base; US governments will have doubled their per capita spending. How did anyone survive in the early 2000s with such a neo-con, unloving state ? Surely the poor were left dying in Walmart parking lots ?

Socialism is an opium for the simpletons of the world. It is a primitive, savage, inane theology of incoherence. It leads to dependency, illiteracy and bankruptcy. Entitlements are one indicator of this.

The US spends close to $1 Trillion on socialized health care [a bankrupted system]; close to $1 Trillion on old age pensions [a soon to be bankrupted system]; and over $1 Trillion on poor relief. $3 Trillion dollars or 17 % of the total economy is transferred through approximately 250 agencies to provide social assistance [count them here]. These agencies consume approximately 25% of every dollar sent to them if you include salaries, pensions, unfunded pensions and overhead costs [link]. Further, the socialized health programs are famous for fraud, corruption and waste, consuming $300 billion or more [30% +] of total budgets [link].

The US is already bankrupt if you include unfunded liabilities. Spending will be at $6 Trillion within 10 years. But the socialists and Marxists will scream that if you don't spend that money the world will end; Gaia will implode, cannibalism will be rampant amongst the 'poor', Blacks will kill themselves, and Grandma will be eating Purina cat chow and be denied dental care.

...the Congressional Budget Office projects that annual federal spending will increase by $2.4 trillion to $5.9 trillion in a decade....”

So wrote yet another neo-con fascist in the WSJ [link]. The racist's prescriptions ? Cut taxes and spending. How can we possibly reduce the doubling of kind, benevolent, angelic government ? Lo! Behold the immorality of the cretin and bandit, surely he will burn in the hellfire and wrath of Gaia and Marx:

Since World War II, OECD countries that stabilized their budgets without recession averaged $5-$6 of actual spending cuts per dollar of tax hikes. Examples include the Netherlands in the mid-1990s and Sweden in the mid-2000s. In a paper last year for the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, Stanford's John Cogan and John Taylor, with Volker Wieland and Maik Wolters of Frankfurt, Germany's Goethe University, show that a reduction in federal spending over several years amounting to 3% of GDP—bringing noninterest spending down to pre-financial-crisis levels—will increase short-term GDP.

Why? Because expectations of lower future taxes and debt, and therefore higher incomes, increase private spending. The U.S. reduced spending as a share of GDP by 5% from the mid-1980s to mid-1990s. Canada reduced its spending as share of GDP by 8% in the mid-'90s and 2000s. In both cases, the reductions reinforced a period of strong growth.”

There will be no spending cuts. The uncivil service and their political masters [or puppets?] won't allow it. The media is thunderously in love with the hypocrisy and stupidity of the socialist project. Apparently they don't understand the effects of National Socialism, or Communism, or Eco-'extremism'. Print money, spend-spend-spend, more debt, more programs, more bureaucracies. It tis the way of the age of Aquarius – the worst generation in modern history.
