So, you’ve stumbled onto my humble little blog. Perhaps you are a Millenial wondering why most of your friends aren’t fully employed. Or wondering why ObamaKare is being shoved down your throat. Or why your generation is on the hook for a national debt that stands at $17 $18 Trillion and counting. Maybe you are scratching your head wondering why your President thinks Global Warming the weather is more worrisome than Islamic Terror. And perhaps you’ve started to become aware there might be something the corrupt and biased lame stream media isn’t telling you. The answer, to these and other existential questions, is ... the Left - specifically, the modern American Progressive. Think of this site as a portal to a richer understanding of this answer, a portal purposely designed with a consciously cock-eyed bent to keep it entertaining. Because the First Amendment is forever and the Internet never forgets. (Plus you better figure out FICA isn't the name of a Swedish bikini model, before she eats your entire paycheck.)

How to use the portal? You could dive into my archive*. I was most active here 2010-2012, but that matters not. How many times do I need to demonstrate the central point? To wit, the political / ideological Left is a menace to the constitutional republic and must be resisted lest the American experiment in liberty devolve into socialist dystopia. If it's the more pointed hand-to-hand combat of the comment board that whets your appetite, click the 'My Disqus Comments' widget. I continue to visit that world from time to time as a light diversion. Or you could browse through my blog roll. It's a very representative collection of center-right blogs, though hardly exhaustive. I can't do the political / ideology thing 24x7, and you probably can't either. Leave that to the hysterical, talking point chanting, mob agitating, race baiting, election stealing, gaia worshiping, straw man torching, Islamic Terrorist appeasing, organized Left (aka OFA, MSNBC, UAW, SEIU, Think Progress, Media Matters, most of legacy media, the politically correct faculty lounge, anybody who belonged to Journolist, anybody connected to Occupy Wall Street, anything funded by George Soros or Tom Steyer, their paid Internet trolls, and the rest of the usual Team Leftie suspects).

Contemporary Politics and Newton’s Three Laws of Motion (Part 4)

In an earlier post [blog archive : “Contemporary Politics and Newton’s Three Laws of Motion” : January 11, 2010], I set up a thesis behind this blog project. The thesis, in a nutshell, is:

• The American people are a naturally Conservative people (whether they know it or not).
• The American people are a naturally apolitical people (and resent being made to activate politically).
• Committed Progressive ideologues have seized the American political system.
• The Excesses perpetrated by these Progressive ideologues have finally awoken the American Conservative majority.
• A Conservative Ascendancy is in progress that will result in a historic electoral collision in November 2010.

In other words, this year’s election cycle can be analyzed through the prism of a simple Newtonian physics equation: F = m * a.

The good citizens of the 48th state (Arizona) have taken principled federalist action to add acceleration toward the inevitable November collision. Unless you remain among the shrinking minority of American citizens glued to your couch, you are surely aware Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed on April 23 a state law making it a crime to be an illegal alien in Arizona. Why has a controversy erupted over someone passing a law that says it is illegal to be illegal? Sounds obvious enough, doesn't it?  The answer is we are living through an exceptional period of history I call "Liberty vs. Tyranny USA 2010."

Following is the concluding paragraph to my January 1, 2010 post (“Baseline Thoughts – Liberty and the Constitution”):

I believe 2010 will be a good year for the Ninth and Tenth Amendments. Amendment 9 – Construction of the Constitution - “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. “ Amendment 10 – Powers of the States and People - The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” In other words, the national government is strictly limited by the language in the document, the states and people are not.

In a large sense, the good citizens of Arizona are continuing to fulfill my prediction. In Liberty vs. Tyranny USA 2010, this is a continuation of the fall-out from so-called “Health Care Reform” (HCR) - which is in fact the soon to be recognized as historic Nullification movement. (Which will make a lot of news independent of the separate and distinct movement to repeal the law at a federal level)

The good citizens of Arizona finally became exasperated with waiting for the federal government to control the border with Mexico, and being overwhelmed by Mexican-sourced crime as a result. And make no mistake – all the citizens of Arizona really want is for the border to be under control. Just as a vast majority of American citizens only wanted Congress to control health care costs. And that’s what’s instructive here.

The Progressives are incapable of doing anything constructive without trying to remake everything all at once. They cannot “reform” any system, without tearing it completely apart and rebuilding from scratch according to their preset ideological blueprint. We Conservatives are proponents of taking incremental steps. Take a step, measure the result, take the next step with the benefit of learned experience. 2010 is the year you will need to choose once and for all what philosophy makes more sense to you.

BHO and the Progressives cannot and will not control the border until they can tackle so-called “comprehensive” reform that includes their goal of amnesty for illegal aliens. It is an entirely political posture, because they seek to add this demographic to their permanent voting bloc of government clients. The sliver of good news here is the good citizens of Arizona knocked BHO and the Progressives off their agenda, which was supposed to be entirely focused on so-called “comprehensive” Financial Reform. (This assault on Wall Street is of course fundamentally another industry takeover, but it’s complicated, so they think they can slip it through politically. They are probably right, unfortunately.)

The Left’s reaction to the good citizens of Arizona is also sadly predictable. They are predictably organizing their grievance constituencies into angry mobs, and submitting law suits to protect “civil rights” that don’t exist. The President of all the United States even got into the act by urging his demographically defined political base into action. Look for this agitation to escalate quickly. The biased MSM will be predictably behind in reporting it to you.

According to now established protocol, each LibertyAtStake post with the Newtonian theme must now include a Thermotron update. The “Events” poster child is by now obvious.

The “Leftie Lunacy” poster child is none other than our old friend from BHO’s home state of Illinois – the disgraced Governor Rod Blagojevich. Mr. Blagojevich is exercising his Constitutional right to a fair trial by insisting BHO testify to his involvement in the selling of his former US Senate seat. Consequently, the probability of eventual impeachment for Barack Hussein Obama is now an even bet.

On the “GOP/TEA Party Alignment” front I am calling out a common enemy to make a point – Ed Rendell. This Democrat Governor of Pennsylvania made some remarks over the weekend criticizing the ability of the TEA Party to organize. Mr. Rendell misses the point. It’s not the depth of the TEA Party “organization” he should worry about, it’s the breadth.   To make this point “artistically,” I created a YouTube playlist I call “The United States of T.E.A. Party, 2010.” It literally consists of precisely one video from each state in the union, ordered by the date each state entered the union. The point here is just that the playlist was very easy to assemble.   View it here. You can use the following as a scorecard to follow along. (It will render a stand-alone blogger page with a table of 50 data rows, one per video in the playlist.)

Note also, Mr. Rendell, TEA Party patriots vote on principle. By contrast, the Democrat “base” by-and-large votes based on what the government has lately done for them, and the Democrats have given them very little this session. That’s why firing up “Latinos” over this will prove to be a political mistake. Once again, the Democrats have raised someone's expectations, and once again they won’t deliver. There is zero chance of passing an immigration bill before the election.  I predict a low turnout for the Democrat "base" in November.
