Elizabeth Warren is the rookie Senator from Massachusetts. We refer to her affectionately as Big Chief Forked-Tongue Warren, because she lied about her ethnicity — tried to embellish it a bit by adding some non-existent American Indian blood when she was running for her current Senate seat.
Lately Warren’s been running around the country pretending that the Republicans run the country, even though Democrats have the Presidency, the Senate, the media, academia and Hollywood.
Despite all that, Big CF-T Warren has been in a fightin’ mood lately. Apparently, Democrats don’t yet control enough for her tastes. Big CF-T Warren and her Democrats will not be content until they control every aspect of your life.
“Well!” I hear you say, “That’s a pretty bold thing to say, what proof do you have of that?”
I have Big CF-T Warren’s own words. In one of her speeches before a well-filtered crowd of those sure to applaud her every burp, she said, and I quote:
“Conservatives are guided by an internal motto: ‘I got mine; the rest of you are on your own.’ “
Well, regardless of whether “we got ours,” the second phrase: “you are on your own,” in a healthy country would be sweet music to the ears of all the people.
Let’s review what used to be a typical country. Through most of history, the vast majority of countries have been some kind of monarchy, that had exactly two social strata: the leisured nobility and the struggling, gasping, toiling and dying masses.
What overcame that antiquated, millennia-old, oppressive system? One thing and one thing only: Capitalism. Capitalism is a very recent innovation. Sadly, though, we’ve never had anything resembling the “unfettered capitalism” the left whines so piteously about.
Capitalism has as its central tenet: the idea that a properly-constituted government should cede to the people free reign to invent, innovate, start businesses of their own and, most importantly, the government should leave the people largely alone — “on their own,” if you will — to keep most of the fruits of their own labor and of their own ingenuity.
Capitalism brought about a true revolution in people’s lives: social strata. And that implied something that had never existed in the history of mankind: economic mobility… and inequality. Absent capitalism, you had, and have, the antiquated, backward, oppressive societies described above. And you have one other thing the left loves so much: income equality. Incomes are all equally low, and there’s no economic mobility, so there’s always equality. This is the hallmark of the left: their equality leaves everyone equally impoverished, locked into their poverty, equally miserable, and, well… equal.
I should note that capitalism does have a downside. It’s: risk. You can lose it all in capitalism. Of course, you can also then regain it all, if you do the right things. However, the downside for non-capitalistic societies is pretty serious too: you cannot prosper. Capitalism’s worst case is non-capitalism’s norm.
So, CF-T Warren is telling us, flat-out, to our faces, that she doesn’t want us to be “on our own,” to be free to keep most of what we earn, to be able to make new things, start businesses without the burden of ham-fisted, ridiculous regulations, to be free to invent and innovate. No, she doesn’t want us to be able to do all that. Because that would mean that we — contrary to her and her President’s bizarre assertions — are building that ourselves. Without the government. Big CF-T Warren’s above-expressed goal is to reduce you to poverty, whence you can never extricate yourself, but that’ll be okay, because everyone else will be there too.
Remember when Barack Obama said that people who built businesses themselves, didn’t really do it themselves? That without the government’s kind benevolence those businesses never would have got off the ground? That was most definitely not a statement of reality, but a statement of purpose. A statement of actual reality would have been: “You know that business you got going? You did that despite all the brainless, stupid, pointless regulatory obstacles, paperwork and bureaucracy the government threw down in your path.” What Obama was really saying was: “You know that business you want to build? We don’t want you to do it yourself, we don’t want you to do it without the government being closely involved in every aspect of the effort. Whether you want us there or not.”
That’s Big Chief Forked-Tongue Elizabeth Warren’s goal too. She said so herself. That’s her unintentional confession to you and me. Let’s hope you are intelligent enough to see it, 🙂 and to tell Warren and her corrupt, reactionary, flat-earther ilk to go take a hike, get a real job, learn something about life and leave us, the people, the heck alone.
