I was in a conversation with a friend who posts here at Conservative Utopia quit often. He and I don`t always agree but I enjoy our posts back and forth as we hash out the issues of the day. In our last conversation we were arguing about “jobs being shipped overseas” and who or what was responsible for that fact. The progressives are always making the moronic statement that the Republicans shipped jobs overseas. This statement is illogical, the Republicans don`t have the power to tell some CEO “hey buddy, move your company overseas we don`t want you here”. What benefit would any American have with doing that, Republican or Democrat? The companies which have moved have done so because: A) labor unions are too expensive in the US, and B) The corporate tax rate in the US is among the highest in the world (35%) second only to India (30-40%)
If you were a corporate CEO and you had to answer to stockholders and keep your profits at an acceptable level to entice investors to stay; you would move over seas as well. The government is the problem people not the solution, how is it that Americans continue to trust anything the government says? Progressives in both the Democrat and Republican parties have fought tax cuts to corporations for years. As soon as the conservative start talking about cutting corporate tax rates the progressives start using the age old Marxist class warfare rhetoric “ tax cuts for the rich”. If we Americans were smart enough to look at our free market economy like a business instead of a social welfare system we would see that we want to be the most competitive country in the world. If we cut corporate tax rates not only would these companies come home but foreign companies would come as well.
The progressives have been masterful since the 1960`s cultural revolution at brainwashing the American public with “class warfare” rhetoric. They have taught Americans to hate the rich as if they were some sort of enemy of the state. They have convinced a large portion of the population that America is economically unjust; while never seeing the true injustice of tyrannical governments across the globe and throughout history. If you look at the world in terms of being a neighborhood, America is the rich kid on the block; everyone is jealous and covets our accomplishments. These same citizens who envy America don`t have the intestinal fortitude to change their own forms of government. It is reminiscent of the old story of the crab bucket. When a fisherman is catching crabs he usually puts them in a five gallon bucket. There is no need to put a lid on the bucket because if one crab tries to escape, the other crabs pull him back down. Jealousy, greed, covetousness, and fear are the tools of the progressive ideology.
The progressives are masterful liars and they do so because they believe that their mission, their intellect, and their morality is so far superior to the great unwashed; that the ends justifies the means. That is to say that they will justify their lies because they think their policies are the answer to all problems period. Progressives can never seem to hold a majority in this country to get their agenda passed; this is why they work so hard to get their judges in place in appeals courts and on the Supreme Court. In this way they can legislate from the bench rather in the state and federal legislatures. I can hear the drones out their saying that the GOP or conservatives believe the same thing, that their ideology is superior. To that I would answer; history proves that the experiment called America works; it also proves the experiment called Marxism does not. This is an undeniable fact; Marxism has been responsible for millions of deaths of innocent civilians in the name of so called social justice and economic equality.
The once great Democrat party made its mark in the industrial revolution by standing up for the working class against crony capitalists and progressive Republicans who used their power for greed. There was at that time a need to organize and help defeat corrupt and powerful businessmen and politicians. The country pulled together in the 40`s and 50`s and the free market capitalist system flourished to produce a magnificent society of free and independent citizens. The only problem was not all citizens were allowed to participate. The colored peoples and women were held back by a racists and bigoted Supreme Court who was beholden to southern white democrats like Robert Byrd and Albert Gore.
In the 1960`s along came the civil rights movement which was sorely needed in this great nation and Dr. King and others where hero`s of our country. The Democrat party was absolutely in the tank with racists to hold back the civil rights movement of that day. During the 1960`s and 70`s the progressive movement which had lost its appeal during WWII was again in search of a home. It found its home in the Democrat party and they haven`t looked back since. The progressive movement is the new name for the same old tyranny of European socialism which has held that part of the world back for centuries. The ruling class mentality of European countries goes back to the very foundations of human history. One nation was founded to finally give men the freedoms to totally self govern. America was an experiment in men`s ability to live under equality of opportunity; all men would be equal under the law with the freedom to become who they so choose to be. No more would the Kings, Queens, and tyrants of the European ruling class make decisions with men`s lives; the law would be king and all would bow to its rule.
The same mentality of the ruling class of Europe can be found in the modern day progressive movement. The Democrat party no longer has the right to claim any so called “conservative Democrats” and the proof is in their own voting records. The Republicans have seen the growth of a new conservative movement in the “Tea Party” and the progressives in the Republican Party hate them. The only hope for America is for the conservative movement to defeat all progressives in the Republican and Democrat party. Conservatives need to fight the media and their constant propaganda promoting class warfare which turns one citizen against another. The American people need to understand that government and progressive politicians create the very problems they then tell us they will fix. We the people can self govern and we do not need Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Bush, or any other progressive elitists from the ruling class to run our lives. They work for us damn it! They are supposed to be servants to our nation not tyrants who throw us crumbs while they spend like drunken sailors. Wake up citizens!

I wanted to touch on the subject of class warfare because it really is at the heart of our countries problems. You cannot have a war without an antagonistic issue. In our country we as Americans have one important thing in common, love of freedom and liberty. In Europe with its socialist and left wing leanings; the old world ruling classes were always trying to reinvent government with themselves in power. Europe is far older than America; we are the new kids on the block. The Europeans have had centuries to build magnificent societies with freedom and wealth, yet they have never truly succeeded in doing so.
Along comes America; started by a group of Europeans immigrants who were tired of the ruling class back home. These men had tasted the effects of centuries of oppression form the monarchs, military dictators, and other monolithic societies in Europe. America was an experiment in freedom; with all men being free form the rule of other men. The law would be the only king and all men would bow down its rule, even the president. Men could own private property and build any amount of wealth they chose. America was not going to be perfect as no government system on this earth can be perfect. America would, however, create more freedom and liberty than any of the great societies before her.
Class warfare is a resentment born in the slums and agricultural fields of Europe not America. It came from the unfair treatment of the peasant by the ruling class; the land lords and their cruelty toward the villagers and farmers of that time in Europe. It is no wonder the peoples of that time hated the ruling class who were simply born into luck or wealth, and looked down their nose at those who were not. The ruling class lived off the backs of the poor through taxation and slave labor in the fields. One can only imagine the resentment that the people of that day had; the frustrations that they felt because they had no real way to lift themselves up past their place in society.
It was in this environment that class warfare had a justifiable complaint. For centuries the ruling class believed themselves to be put in place by god himself which gave light to the term “frozen classes” which means “permanent classes”. This gave way to the philosophy of men like Edmund Burke and other philosophers of the day. Burke believed that rights were god given and all men should be free to live in an ordered society ruled only by the law and not a king. The founding fathers studied Burke`s philosophies and used them in their writings about the new revolution and separation from the British.
In the 1840`s the world first heard the name Karl Marx. Marx was an isolated man who never believed in a revolution and for the most part wanted nothing to do with the people he championed for. He hated the bourgeois or capitalist/ruling class of the day. Marx was against economic progress and described capitalists as “rats scurrying the globe to find new markets to sell goods”. Marx was often described as an unemotional and uncompassionate man. The communist movement was more far reaching than the socialists of the day. Marx was a communist at heart and did not agree with the utopian ideals of the socialist. He never gave a detailed definition of communism in his literary works but rather spoke of class struggle and the plight of the proletariat or lower class.
America was founded on the principles of Burke and other western thinkers of that day. These men also hated the ruling class and wanted a form of government which allowed men to rule themselves. They wanted a society in which men could lift themselves to whatever social class they could achieve. Marx thought all capitalism was evil and that it used the working poor to lift the bourgeois or ruling class to the top. The fact is that in a perfect world we would not have separate classes but in this imperfect world not all men choose to reach for higher goals. Free people are always free to be rich or poor it is their choice. In the communist system you do not have that choice, you are slave to the state because no one man is allowed to be greater than another. This sounds like a form of equality does it not? The communist claims that all are equal in the eyes of the state; and that all should work for the betterment of society as a whole and not the individual. This really sounds good; If we could all just give to one another and not worry about ourselves wouldn`t life be less stressful? Wouldn`t all men be taken care of? No more competition, no more worry of private property or keeping up with the Jones`s.
The problem with this world view is that men are involved in its existence and organization. Society`s must have some form of government in place to manage the populace. Someone has to lead and someone has to keep order in a society. There has to be a central government in place to send out the food, keep the police and firemen paid, and build infrastructure. These are the necessary evils of government, unless you believe in anarchy. It is this very fact that brings about the demise of the socialist/communist theory. Communism/socialism is in fact a theory because no society has ever made it work. The people who run the government have all the power and all the money; once again you have a ruling class of politicians and party members. This communist ruling class is the most dark of all ruling classes; just look at Korea, Russia (under Lenin/Stalin), Cuba, Vietnam/Cambodia, and China. Communism is responsible for millions of brutal deaths and the destruction of billions in private property in the name of equality.
Class warfare is a detestable and disgusting display of envy and covetousness. The capitalist system is not perfect and never will be; however, it is more fair and forgiving than any other economic system in the world today. The progressive politician spreads his class warfare rhetoric and the useful idiot is convinced that the rich are evil and don`t care for the poor. The progressive politicians tell the useful idiot “vote for me and I will tax the rich and spread the wealth and make things fair for everyone”. The progressive politician tells the useful idiot that healthcare, jobs, retirement, and wages are a right. The progressive politician convinces the useful idiot that the rich man stands in the way of these rights because he is greedy. The useful idiot then votes for this politician and allows him to steal from his neighbor through taxation and regulation for the supposed good of all.
The useful idiot would rather have a politician steal wealth from his neighbor and give it to him; than to take responsibility for his own live and his own choices. The useful idiot sees this as moral and just because the he used the police power of government to steal his neighbors’ private property; rather than breaking into the neighbors house himself. Hitler rose to power with the help of useful idiots who were so enamored with his words and promises they ignored the warning signs of his true nature. Hitler had a past which anyone could see was radical, but the German people ignored it and embraced the Nazi party. History tells no lies, and class warfare has been used before to separate countrymen from one another.
What if we no longer listened to these fools in Washington who have stolen our wealth, caused division amongst our people, and promised for 60 years to fix all society’s ills only to make them worse. The drones will always want big daddy government to take care of them. The rest of America must drop the mantle of class warfare and class envy and work together toward taking power away from Washington. We the people deserve to keep what we earn, own private property, and pass these things to our children when we die. This truly is a magnificent society, like no other society in human history.
