"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

Rancher/Farmers - Further Casualities in the War Being Waged by the Left

Take a good, hard look at the following article and note particularly way down in the 10th paragraph:

Many Democrats argue the tax promotes equality among classes,

If you will recall that article I wrote last week after the election, I mentioned that the left in this country takes as its motto the rallying cry of the French Revolution, "Liberty, EQUALITY, Fraternity".

They will not rest until they have reduced every citizen in this nation to the same level of misery and ruin that their policies are already producing in the land. That is their idea of Equality - an EQUALITY of IMPOVERISHMENT AND MISERY.

The vision of the Founding Fathers, and that which made our nation the most powerful, richest and most free nation ever seen, was an EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY. Where else but in America could a person of common means, with dogged grit and determination, running on his or her dreams, combined with hard work and sacrifice, reach greatness and levels of success beyond even their own wildest imagination?

That will be coming to an end in this land if the left is not stopped in their religious quest to equalize all.

I count among some of my friends, both ranchers and farmers who toil long, long hours through all kinds of weather and through all kinds of challenges to work their land and produce our food. Do you think that those leeches on the left, sucking the blood out of their weakening hosts, could give a rat's ass about what they are doing to the average farmer or rancher as a result of their Ahab-like pursuit of an imaginary earthly paradise? Of course not!

Just one more reason for an amicable divorce. Leave them half the nation and let them suck all the blood out of that until there is none left. Then maybe, just maybe, the fools will learn something, but I doubt it.

  1. Dan, you are absolutely correct about the equality-totalitarism. But here in Europe the "conservatives" already have taken these marxist positions and don't even recognize it anymore.

    Expect more of this to come to a country near you:
    In France the marxists (they call themself Social Democrats) are already at the next "progressive" step:
    Forbid homework for schoolboys. You know: since there are children with stupid and antisocial parents: they are "discriminated" against the children who have a healthy and normal family.

    But do not put hope in the GOP. It's only the other side of the same coin.
