“Woe to the land whose king is a child and whose leaders are already drunk in the morning. Happy the land whose king is a nobleman, and whose leaders work hard before they feast and drink, and then only to strengthen themselves for the tasks ahead”. (Eccl 10: 16-17)


"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat


Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput

Welcome to Soviet America

By: Lev Navrozov
Welcome to Soviet America!

“Lev, this is Julie. Do you remember me?” The voice on the phone sounded familiar. She went on: “Almost 40 years ago, I believe the year was 1975, I went to see your play ‘Welcome to Soviet America!’ at Carnegie Hall. It was a one-actor play, in which you played all the roles, while my husband was helping you to set the stage and change the lighting, which was part of the script.”

  2. Karim,

    We respect the Constitution and the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights here in America. Dan is attempting to educate many like you who may not have passed their immigration exams but were summarily made citizens. He has very clearly and convincingly put forth arguments for a peaceful resolution to an ever growing progressive liberal invasion on the Bill of Rights. I am very appreciative of Mr. Norcini's recommendations. Maybe you could do yourself a favor and educate yourself as to how this country became a bastion of freedom, and how it is dissolving before our very eyes. Thank god we have 1/2 of Congress to delay the inevitable until we again suffer so much that we throw these types (Liberal Progressives) out and begin anew. In the meantime, the Obama administration will attempt to steal more power and continue these Stalinist tactics taking the capital out of a capitalistic system. When it does end up as an us against them type of situation, and the military has to live up to their oath, that is to protect the constitution rather than the socialist president, my guns and ammo are certainly on the LIBERTARIAN, true american side. Thanks Dan for the red, your point is very clear and it appears the America we knew may again rise, after, THE WAR.

  3. Soviet America comes in many forms, like the pay for play payout we saw in 2008 under Bush, Paulson, Bernanke & John McCain who "suspended his campaign" because he had to think so hard about what the maximum was he was going to be able to get away with in paying off his billionaire campaign donors. Forget the wall on the Mexican border & start building it instead around Washington DC before its too late.

  4. Kiram: It's not just what america deserves, but what this will unleash on the world. Here is a quick primer on currency. As there will be no restraint on money printing here in the US, it makes it worst for foreign countries who are pegging their currency to the dollar. They must devalue their currency to purchase our dollars. Their purchasing power will decrease in a leveraged fashion as the currency flows to their country (a fiat currency continues to weaken as it is used). It is highly probable most of the world will see food riots, energy shortages, new black markets as governments attempt to tame these problems with price controls.

    Montana: Sure they support Romney... big gov't exists, favoritism exists. That still doesn't change the fact that obama is a fascist, he is no less a friend to big gov't.

    The ONLY saving grace that Romney may have had is he has a business background and eventually may be forced into making the right decision for entitlements and monetary policy. Rand Paul doesn't hurt either.

    Thanks for the good posts Dan.

    You mean non-constitutional guys like John McCain and Lindsey Graham, right? Those guys are moving us to fascism, as they clearly support the police state via indefinite detention of Americans via the NDAA. Unfortunately, Rmoney said he supported the NDAA, too.

    Therefore, we all need to wake up and take this country back at the State level. Start. Now.

    Montana Sacra, regarding Rand Paul, those who are against him (like the WSJ editorial November 29 dissed him) are against liberty. I am happy I donated to Rand's campaign when he was fighting the primary a couple years ago.

  6. I was a Ron Paul delegate to the 2008 Montana Republican convention, where we came within 5 votes of taking the whole shebang over. The traditional big state Republican dirt in there to make sure McCain was the nominee was putrid & disgusting.

    Rand is not Ron, anymore than I am the carbon copy of my father, or you are of yours.

    One way or the other, we'll soon find out...

    Until then, build that DC wall. With a moat.
