Social Security: Bait and Switch Politics

Beginning in the early 20th century, the infiltration of Socialism/Progressives into American politics became strong. And Progressives such as Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Franklin D. Roosevelt were elected and pushed many socialist schemes into place. One such scheme was Social Security Insurance (SSI).

The idea of Social Security “Insurance” itself came from Germany, then a National Socialist Party (NAZI), government:

“By 1935, President Franklin Roosevelt embraced the German idea that there should be government-run “social insurance.” That wasn’t legitimate insurance, where participants have a contract, they pay premiums based on their life expectancy, the premiums are used to make productive investments that will cover the benefits, and the participants and their heirs have a property right to receive benefits that have been paid for. As the Supreme Court later affirmed in Flemming v. Nestor (1960), nobody has a contractual right to receive specific Social Security benefits — Congress can change benefit formulas at any time.

The Winter Chill Coming to Your Living Room

Before the election of President Barrack Hussein Obama in November 2008, he gave an important speech. This speech (SF Chronicle Jan 17, 2008) was when Obama’s Promise to Bankrupt the Coal Industry was made. And your electricity rates will “necessarily skyrocket”.

So should we take those threats seriously? Well, President Obama, like Hillary Clinton, are Progressives. So how has our energy policy fared with Progressives over the history of America?

And secondly, Will the policies of the Progressives cause an energy shortage today, in 2012 and later?

The first clue I noticed was that, going back to GW Cartwright’s book, Mutual interests of Labor and Capital, where he noted:

“In 1918 there is a great fuel shortage.”

What? Why was there a shortage? Well, let’s read some more: Continue reading

What Is Capital?

Even since Karl Marx (164 years ago) wrote his idea of a Utopian society in The Communist Manifesto (1848) and later, Capital (1867–1894) (Das Kapital), socialists have tried to redefine the rewards of your labor as “evil”. The socialists, with the help of Marx and Engels, define what is your savings and your investment as “excess” which is then theirs to take and redistribute your money as they see fit, always taking “their cut” of course.
To illustrate that these actions today is nothing new, listen to the words of G. W. Cartwright, Democrat CA, in 1918:

To the thousands of admirers who had listened to his impassioned appeals for “Social Justice,” the freedom of the “Wage Slave,” the destruction of “Big Business,” and to his indictment of “Capitalism,” Continue reading

The Monumental First 100 years

The Liberals, Socialists, Communists, and these days the Democrats have been trying for years to push the belief that America was founded as a secular country and government.

Their goal has been to substitute that belief for the now and previous belief that by religious and God fearing people settled and founded the colonies, then states, and then federal government.

Karl Marx, from whom the above follow to whatever extent, had as his goal to destroy religion and Capitalism, which he regarded as unequal distribution. Continue reading
