The Socialism Dream

Have you ever noticed that those who champion socialism don't mention the bad parts, ever? They talk about our current society's inequalities and propose socialism as the only viable solution.

What they don't talk about is the terrors of socialism -there is a reason that the Cubans are protesting their socialistic government.

They don't mention that socialism means turning your lives over to the government and it's officials: they will choose your job, your education, your food... everything.

They don't mention how easily socialism turns into communism, with constant surveilannce by government, prisons and camps to hold those who refuse to bend the knee to the totalitarian regime, the citizens reporting on citizens.

Socialism isn't just the loss of private property (and, theoretically -although not in actuality- the abolution of inequality), it's the loss of choice. It's the loss of agency. It's the loss of family. It's the loss of security. It's the loss of freedom.

Socialism has become a popular catch-phrase, the one-size-fits-all solution. In reality, it will be the end of everything we love.

Socialism promises equality and prosperity. However, it won't be done "right this time," it can't be done "right this time."

Because socialism, as has been proved many times in history (to name a few: the USSR; communist China; Venezuala; and Cuba), isn't about equality. It's about power for the few, the exact opposite that those who champion socialism either don't believe or don't disclose.

Don't fall for it:

Socialism isn't pretty.

Freedom is worth standing up for.

Freedom Is Not Permanent

Freedom...

One of the most beautiful, fragile things on Planet Earth.

Ronald Reagan said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."

It's easy to be silent. It's easy to take a knee. It's easy to not see.

Freedom is not free; freedom must be struggled for; freedom must be constantly protected, fought for, lived for.

Now is the time; we cannot wait for "tomorrow," we cannot wait for "someday," we cannot wait. We have to act now.

Read the Constitution, the document that created our system of government.

Read the Declaration of Independence, the document that birthed our nation.

Read the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments that protect our freedoms from government overreach.

Learn about our founding fathers, who sacrificed everything for our freedom.

Take the time to stand up for your rights.

Take the time to share the stories that created our nation.

Freedom is not permanent. It's fragile. And who will protect it if we do not?

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day --

Take time to think, time to pray.

Ponder and consider,

Remember our defenders.

Remember those who gave their lives.

Remember those who sacrificed

Everything for freedom

Everything for this beacon --

Everything for the USA.

Happy Memorial Day.

Time Is Running Out: Why It's Time To Stop Being A 'Silent Majority'

We just want to be nice. Be kind, treat everyone with respect, avoid offending people. Well, it's time to stop. We can't be silent any longer.

Yes, we can be kind, but we need to be loud.

Yes, we can be nice, but it's time to share.

Yes, we can treat people with respect, but we can't let ourselves be doormats.

Sometimes, the truth is offensive, but it needs to be shared anyways.

We think that by being silent and non-responsive, we letting the elite know that we do not approve of their agenda. But they take it as consent -- or at least, that we're not going to do anything to stop them.

Time is running out for those fighting for freedom. And doing it silently isn't working. Einstein said that insanity is "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

Let's stand up, speak out, and stop being silent.

Read, discuss, share.

Be honest about your heroes, your dreams, and your beliefs. Share -- and then explain why those are your heroes, your dreams, and your beliefs.

We don't need to get in people's faces, but we do need to stop being a wallflower and start getting involved in meaningful ways.

Time is running short. Time is precious. And we need to use time wisely.

It's time to stop being silent.

Law: Natural and Governmental

Without law, freedom cannot exist; but with too much law, freedom is suffocated.

In "The Law" by Frederic Bastiat, it is written:

"No society can exist unless the laws are respected to a certain degree, but the safest way to make them respected is to make them respectable. When law and morality are in contradiction to each other, the citizen finds himself in the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense, or of losing his respect for the law -- two evils of equal magnitude, between which it would be difficult to choose."

Natural law is defined by God and resonates with our moral senses, while governmental law is created by governments and may or may not resonate with our moral senses.

Governmental law should be based upon natural law; indeed, this is what has allowed the USA to flourish for so long. "The only reliable basis for sound government and just human relations is natural law (The 5000 Year Leap by W Cleon Skousen)."

But we have come to a point where natural law is not respected by governments; where injustice is asserted out as justice; where law and morality are beginning to contradict each other.

Because of this, freedom will fall. Freedom is falling. Freedom must not fall. If freedom falls, the greatest nations will be reduced to ruins, lives will be reduced to dust, and hope will become a thing of the past.

We cannot let freedom fall. We must protect it, we must live for it, we must learn for it.

We must understand the difference between governmental law, and natural law; we must vote for, work for, and support a government based upon natural law.

How To Write Your Congresspeople

Writing to your Congresspeople is important! You can share your thoughts, beliefs, and ideas.

 

Finding Your Representative

Enter your zip code HERE, which will show you who your representatives are. You can then click on their names to go to their personal website. At the top bar, you will see something like "Contact" or "Email." Click on that, and you will be brought to a form to fill out to send to them.

How To Address Them

For me, the hard part wasn't figuring out how to contact them, it was figuring out what to say! How should I address them? How should I close?

Here is an example of something that works:

 

Senator/Representative [insert full name here]:

Mr/Ms/Mrs/Miss [insert last name here]:

Introduce yourself, share your thoughts, share your reasons why, end by encouraging action.

Sincerely/Thanks/Respectfully

[your name here]

Is The "Equality Act" Good News For America?

The Equality Act was recently passed in the House and moved on to the Senate, where with the Democrat's 50-50 tie (and a very progressive VP to break any ties), it will most likely pass.

The Equality Act sounds really good -- equality is fantastic. Who doesn't like that? It's great stuff!

Congress.gov summerizes the bill as follows: "This bill prohibits discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity in areas including public accommodations and facilities, education, federal funding, enployment, housing, credit, and the jury system. Specifically, the bill defines and includes sex, sexual orietation, and gender identity among the prohibited categories of discrimination or segregation. The bill expands the definition of public accommodations to include places or establishments that provide (1) exhibitions, recreation, exercise, amusement, gatherings, or displays; (2) goods, services, or programs; and (3) transportation services. The bill allows the Department of Justice to intervene in equal protection actions in federal court on account of sexual orientation or gender identity. The bill prohibits an individual from being denied access to a shared facility, including a restroom, a locker room, and a dressing room, that is in accordance with the individual's gender identity."

Still sounding good? Think again -- this bill is perfectly poised to destroy religious liberty and freedom of speech.

This bill would prohibit churches from refusing to marry, for example, two men, even if it goes against every religious belief of this church.

A baker would not be allowed to refuse to make a wedding cake for a gay couple because of his beliefs.

People wouldn't be allowed to express and act in the accordance with the opinion that maybe, God made us and there are only two genders -male and female- and two sexes -male and female- and that gender is determined by the number of X chromosomes.

So is the "Equality Act" good news for America? Well, it's definitely not good news for the Bill of Rights...

Keeping An Eye On Government

As government gets bigger and bigger and bigger, it's important for citizens everywhere to keep tabs on it, although that task can seem even bigger than the government ;-)

Thanks to the internet, there are multiple resources YOU can use to understand what's happening.

I'm going to show you just a few right now:

  • C-SPAN. This is a fantastic website that basically just streams everything the government does, from Supreme Court cases to Senate meetings to press conferences. I love their streaming, but I don't like it when they start opining. At that point, they lean left.
  • Congress.gov. Through this website, you can keep track of congressmen, acts and bills, and much more. It tracks and summarizes what congress is doing. Although, summarizing isn't exactly the same thing as understanding the impact for good or for bad...
  • Whitehouse.gov. This site allows you to keep tabs on the Whitehouse! Keep track of what's happening, who is the president, their priorities, and much more.
  • Senate.gov. This website allows you to find your senators, contact them, see what's happening in the senate, and much more. Fantastic place.
  • House.gov. The same as the above, but for the House of Representatives.

Hopefully, with these five resources, you can know what's happening and who is doing what. Keeping an eye on the government is an important job, and the only people responsible enough to do it is We The People! For obvious reasons, the people in office generally won't be terribly good at it.
