Dreamy Liberalism? Been There, Done That!

Dreamer-In-Chief
President Obama is not the first dreamy, idealistic liberal to occupy America's White House.      Franklin Delano Roosevelt was very much the same as Obama. 

Like Obama, FDR tried, for many years, to bring the economy out of the Great Depression with a dreamy, and highly centralized, liberal agenda, run by micro-managing, central planning bureaucrats in Washington.     Not only did those policies fail miserably at their intended purpose, which was to produce sustainable economic growth in America; but his dreamy & idealistic foreign policy was a miserable failure at preventing war overseas, as well.   In the end, it cost America dearly, in both blood and treasure.

FDR famously said, "The Only Thing We Have To Fear Is Fear Itself."    That famous statement summed up FDR's understanding of what was wrong with America, both on domestic policy and on foreign policy.  

In terms of domestic policy, he was referring to the psychological reasons for a weak stock market.    After the Crash of 1929, investors of all stripes, if they had any financial resources left, were fearful of buying stocks.    When fear of stocks is widespread, then investment capital for businesses is hard to come by; and when the economy is starved for investment capital, then it has trouble growing.    

On domestic policy, I do agree that fear of stocks is an important impediment to growth, but I disagree vehemently with Obama's FDR-like vision of how to overcome that impediment.      


Obama, like FDR, supports massive, centrally planned and managed, federal spending programs.     In the 1930's, FDR called these programs "The New Deal."     There were actually 2 big spending spending packages, "New Deal #1", and "New Deal #2", because the first one didn't do enough.   Sound familiar?

These days, Obama calls them "American Recovery & Reinvestment Acts."   Just like FDR's New Deal package, the first one hasn't done enough, and they want more.    History repeats, especially when it is in the hands of dreamy liberals who don't face up to facts.    


Today's liberals, like FDR's liberals, are trying for another big round of pork.    The fact is that these liberals are all the same.   They really don't give a darn about stimulating the economy effectively or solving America's problems.    They care only about lining their own pockets, and it shows.    The Washington, DC economy is booming, while the rest of the country stagnates.  


In fact, if you could talk privately and candidly with them, some of the best studied liberals might actually admit, privately, that the history of Keynesian stimulus has been an unmitigated disaster for the American economy.   Clearly, it failed miserably in the 1930's; and it has accomplished little more than increasing the federal debt, over the past several decades.  

Smart centrists, like Bill Clinton, will admit this to you, if you can get them to speak candidly in an intellectually honest manner.    In fact, Bill Clinton DID  admit that Obama doesn't know what he is doing, according to Dick Morris on Fox News:





But, sadly for America, President Obama, and his coalition of extreme leftists, still occupy the White House.     In their desperation to maintain good appearances during an election year, the Democratic machine quickly put the muzzle on Mr. Clinton, according to Rush Limbaugh.     

If our nation is to survive and prosper over the coming centuries, it is incumbent on all of us to learn from the lessons of history, so that we don't blindly repeat them, as we seem to be doing right now.     

If higher education, and the media, was not so dominated by liberals (95% of College Professors are Democrats), then it might not be necessary for me to write pieces like this; but sadly, America's higher education is going to pot.    Even graduates of the highly ranked colleges need to be re-educated, after spending a small fortune on liberal indoctrination, just so that they can unwind all the socialist indoctrination and see the truth.

Keynesian-ism simply doesn't work, in terms of creating sustainable, long term economic growth.    Keynes himself admitted this, towards the end of his life.   It is a fact, and if our higher education system and our mainstream media were more responsible in the teaching of our People, this would be a widely known fact by now, but its not.   


Keynesian-ism is nothing more than a justification for pork ... handouts to political buddies.    That's all its good for.     

Oh, wait, I forgot, it is also effective at (1)raising the federal debt, (2)damaging the long term sustainability of the economy, (3)weakening the dollar, and (4) promoting homosexuality and debauchery amongst the People (Keynes was a homosexual).      


So, if you are in that Communist, Anti-American faction, which holds that weakening America will make the world better off, then you can put Keynesian-ism in the plus column, but I am certainly not in that faction.    

I, for one, see Keynesian-ism as a 'clear and present danger' to the future strength and prosperity of our nation.  More to the point, it is a 'clear and present danger' to my children.

Turning now to foreign policy, that same dreamy liberal fantasy that "we have nothing to fear but fear itself" dominates the liberal mindset these days.     As in the 1930's, that mindset is also, today, a "dangerous delusion that will cause more problems than it solves."    

Indeed, some regard that thinking, in theological terms, as a "seductive temptation from the devil,"  because it lures voters into a delusional state of complacency and trust, which sets us up for disaster, or at least for a greater problem in the future.

In the 1930's, FDR and his delusional Democrats thought that Hitler would just sort of go away if we stuck our heads in the sands, like Ostriches.       And, that's exactly what the liberals and the Islamists want us to do, today.    

They want us to disarm and stick our heads in the sands, like Ostriches, under that dreamy delusion that the whole world would be more peaceful, if only America was not so strong and prosperous.       


Wouldn't that be convenient for the aggressive, Muslim Caliphate that seeks world domination?    


Then, they could just waltz on in here and decapitate us all, while our heads are stuck in the sand!   They wouldn't need centrifuges, uranium, or even firearms.   Just a large order of decapitation knives!

The religion of Islam began in the deserts of Saudi Arabia, where the earth is dry and unproductive.       It was centered in Mecca.      After resolving some of the early conflicts with other Arabs, the Islamists quickly began to look outwards for better lands.     With the technology of those days, conquest of more fertile lands was the only way to feed their fast growing, polygamous population.

Islamists have a centuries long institutional memory that is deeply saturated with jealousy of fertile lands.     Imagine a desert, without any trees or cropland.    No wood, no crops.  The Islamists were, and still are, desperate for better lands, and that's why their religion is so aggressive.    


In Christianity, jealousy, or "coveting", is recognized as a sinful emotion; and the Billion-Strong Islamic world is CHOCK FULL OF IT.      Where do you think that jealousy is directed?      The beautiful, lush, and fertile lands of Israel, England, Europe & the Americas.  

Indeed, the religion of Islam harnesses that jealousy, empowers it with hatred and violence, and then turns it against infidels, who - coincidentally - are also the occupants of the most fertile lands in the world.    Islam's very purpose, as a religion, is to conquer better lands.

Don't fall into that pacifist, liberal delusion, which holds that mutual fear of each other is what leads to war.    The Obamites and the Global Socialists at the United Nations argue that, if they can just shut down the internet and control the presses, then they can lead the world to peace and prosperity from their comfy & corrupt perches in the White House and the United Nations.    

That is a delusion.    It won't work, because Iran will continue to arm and expand, whether we can see it on TV or not; and it will be used as cover for  endless government corruption and waste.   


Look at what politicians get away with already, even with a Free Press to expose them.    Without a Free Press, the corruption and waste will get worse.   In addition, private industry, which actually produces the goods and services that we need, would die a fast death, without a Free Press for promotion of private products and services.

We have a lot more to fear than fear itself.    What we have to fear is a violent, aggressive, religious ideology that intends to conquer Israel, Europe, England, & America.     Its real.  Its now.   Wake up and smell the coffee!      


What leads to war is jealousy, rage, & competition for resources.    Have you ever heard someone say, "I am so jealous, I could kill ... {so and so}."     That's why its a sin, and that's why it can lead to war, whether the Press is Free or not.  To believe otherwise is to fall into the same trap that FDR fell into in the 1930's.   


He thought we had nothing to fear from Hitler.   He ignored the early warnings of foreign policy hawks, like Winston Churchill, who was shunned and denigrated out of politics & society for his early Hawkishness on Hitler.    


The result?    Paris fell.  London got bombed.  6 Million Jews were killed.


And, when WE finally DID go to war against Hitler, it cost us a heck of a lot more, in both blood and treasure, than it would've cost, if we had acted sooner.

Obama, and the liberals, are making the same mistake now.   Every day that passes increases the size, strength, & resolve of the military of the Islamic Republic of Iran, as well as the Islamists in Pakistan, Palestine, and elsewhere.    The longer we wait to confront them, the higher will be the cost of victory.




If you value Israel as a productive, western economy.   If you value England and Europe as western civilizations where the beheading of wives and converts is illegal.   If you value America both as your home and as freedom's last bastion, then the time has come to act!


It's time to elect Republicans & Tea Partiers and to confront all of these challenges and threats to America's future.    The days of ignoring the lessons of history and following the lead of delusional liberals are drawing to a close.

  1. Your motto is bad Latin. It should be ad Libertatem

  2. The intellectual credibility you earn with a brilliant dissection of Obama's flawed economic policies (points 1-3) is undermined by your bigotry in point 4. Besides being apropos of nothing, it makes you appear as fanatical and warped as the Muslims you despise.

  3. TO Anonymous:

    Please read my next post, which includes a video of a Tunisian Islamist beheading a convert to Christianity.

    Is it bigoted, in your view, to oppose such practices, those who perpetrate them, and the ideology that promotes them?

  6. There are good ideas here but they are expressed in such a rambling way that they get lost. Focus on a couple of clear ideas in each post and more readers may come.
