Small government and debt reduction isn’t all

Public Debt in USAIn some of my more recent posts, including Ron Paul the most hypocritical candidate, I strongly criticized Ron Paul for being yet another “miracle elixir” charlatan when addressing to the masses. I also criticized him for finding easy scapegoats to blame and for distorting the liberal/libertarian message.

At the beginning of the 2008 economic crisis, precisely during the Paulson Plan, the bailout stimulus and at the peak of the socialist “Yes we can” campaigns, I correctly predicted that the public opinion would change from socialism to “liberalism”.

I will go deeper into this in subsequent articles, but the point is that the change of political direction of the masses was fairly predictable. But if on the surface the political opinions have changed, it’s really both sides of the same coin.
Socialism was simply running out of “miracle pills” for all society issues, so logically “liberalism” took over.
When I say “liberalism”, I am referring to Ron Paul’s propaganda, sort of based on liberalism… on the surface.

The problems in the United States are not so much political than ideological. Going from international socialism to international “ronpaulism” (sorry I really can’t associate liberalism or libertarianism to his policies) is not really what we need.
Sure it’s better to have an ethnomasochist government that’s not in debt and doesn’t fuck with our currency rather than an ethnomasochist government that does, but the core problems are still here.

The masses went from international socialism to international ronpaulism, thinking of it as a major change in our politics.
They went from :

  • cheering “Yes we can” to cheering “End the Fed”
  • seeing the “rich” as the cause of all our problems to seeing the “government” as the cause of all our problems (scapegoating)
  • defending foreign interests by bailouts and international aids to defending the foreign by non-interventionism
  • etc…

Notice that every scapegoat found for our problems has to be American (corporates, governments, the American rich class), otherwise you are labelled as racist.
Even the 9/11 attacks are blamed by the Americans on other Americans, since they are so scared of conflicting the foreign.

And if in appearance Ron Paul’s message seems liberal, it’s not.
I can’t stress this enough but liberalism means individual responsibility.
Is finding scapegoats a responsible attitude ? Blaming the government for everything (I never thought I would defend the government some day) ?

Ron Paul simply chose a few parts of liberalism that seemed appealing to the masses, such as the opposition to statism (that Ron Paul incorrectly distorts into the opposition of our government), debt reduction (which should be mandatory for every politician by now), low taxes and non-interventionism.
He added a good dose of ethnomasochism and foreign loving propaganda for it to be even more demagogic, and based his whole political program on those ideas.

But as stated in the title, those ideas aren’t everything. Neither the government nor the debt caused our huge trade deficit (granted that governmental intervention might contribute to extend it), neither the government nor the debt caused massive delocalizations, unemployment and foreign outsourcing, neither the government nor the debt caused ethnomasochism and the cult of the foreign.

Ron Paul is just another miracle pills selling hippie, just as Obama, Bush and all the internationalists that value foreign interests above American interests. He simply chose to changed his message to fit the “new-age” public opinion.

What the United States of America need is a serious nationalist candidate, with serious liberal propositions. We don’t have fifty solutions anyway.
A balanced budget is a requirement, but it’s definitively not a solution. Don’t confuse means and ens.

Americans like it in the ***

No it’s not the name of a random porn movie, but simply the title I came up with when browsing through the questions Americans sent our president for the 2012 Ask Obama campaign on Youtube.
Similarly to last years program, users were to submit questions to the president and he would respond to the ones having the most upvotes.
Not only did 80% of the questions concern SOPA, and none concerned the economic aspect just the regular demagogy anti-American joke, a few questions stood out by the utterly stunning stupidity.
While our country is facing issues like growing ethnomasochism, massive public debt, huge trade deficit, and a dumb monetary policy that consists of printing tons of dollars daily to make up for the loses of our trade deficit, Americans are concerned about gay rights, the views god and the well being of the Iranian people.

Here are a few questions that are particularly brainless :

What legislation/actions do you intend to promote during your second term to either reduce or mitigate the impact of the contribution to global warming caused by the United States?

First question from an environmental hippie. If this guy had any scientific knowledge at all, he would know the United States aren’t causing any significant impact on global warming simply because global warming mostly isn’t caused by man activity. And even if it was, it’s absolutely not a priority when we are facing trade deficit and public debt.

Mr. President, For nearly 50 years we have had a stable financial economy under the Glass-Steagall Act. Will you make a goal to reinstate Glass-Steagall and protect working class Americans with adequate banking reform?

You heard the hippie, we need more regulations.

For how long you are gong to keep God out of your policies by promoting abortions, gay marriages etc? You will never be successful Mr. President. Without God you cannot achieve victory. Please remember this thoroughly.

When confronted with unemployment and debt, the American people are only concerned with… religion. Well good for them.
This dude is perfectly armed for facing the two decades of recession that lie ahead of us.
Unemployed, maybe, but all in the faith of God.

I am a US Marine stationed overseas. I wanted to know how you can justify to us the following. Members of the 3 government branches make 50 to 100 times what I make on a yearly basis. How can you justify this without insulting me or my fellow Marines

Maybe if you started using American weapons… I’m just saying.

der presiden what ar u gon to doe to stop the war on teror??

Maybe he should start the war on illiteracy.

I am 60. I have diabetes, ulcers, high blood pressure. I work full time for a small company and have no health insurance. I cannot get health insurance at a rate I can afford. Why have people like me been left out when it comes to health insurance?

Maybe we should print more money to weaken the dollar even more, so we can expend the already failing concept of collectivist health insurance.

When will we put an end to corporate personhood?

It seems like the socialists will try and blame everything and everyone in order to evade reality.
Bad economy ? Don’t want to accept the reality of economic war because it confronts your fictive hippie values of ethnomasochism ? Blame the corporations.
Blame the corporations. The new scapegoat for all your problems.
After the government, liberalism, the conservatives, the markets, Wall Street, Fox News, Michael Jackson, the 1%… we now offer you the corporations ! They are American, so you can go ahead and blame them nobody will label you as “racist”.
Notice : blaming any other cause than the ones pre-approved by Anti-American, Inc. will make you a “fascist”.

Please don’t pass SOPA and PIPA All “Americans” as well as “World” need an uncensored internet. That’s my request to you.

The “World” ? Why would Barack Obama, president of the United States of America (or what is left of them), even consider listening someone that advocates the interests of the “World” above the ones of this nation ?
Barack Obama is supposed to DEFEND the interests of our nation AGAINST the ones of the world. Like every other president in the “World”. I sincerely hope the person that wrote the question is not American.

Why aren’t the Banksters being prosecuted?

No comment.

Hon’ble Prez, y r u still supporting Pakistan when u’re aware of their offscreen activity which is affecting India directly and other Asian countries indirectly?If this continues, in the nxt 50 yrs u’ll find only the Islamic flags across Americas.

Why don’t you ask the Indian government ? This is America.

Is it possible for the President of the U.S. to give a couple of green cards to European visitors who already tried to improve the mutual understanding between America and Europe?

Maybe stfu ?

The phrase “Too big to fail” has become synonymous with the 2007-08 financial crisis. If anything, banks and financial institutions have become even larger since then. When will the banking system actually be held accountable?

When it’s proven responsible of anything having to do with the 2007-08 financial crisis. For now, it’s not the case.

Exactly, Why can’t we close Guatanamo prison???

Anti-American propaganda once again. 20% of Americans unemployed, trillions in public debt, massive trade-deficit and the hippies still worrying about foreigners in Guantanamo.

When can we expect to begin seeing prosecution of Wall Street insiders responsible for the massive fraud that led to the collapse of our economy? There seems to be lots of evidence, but no charges or arrests.

“There seems to be lots of evidence”… on NBC.

Mr. President what do you think about Georgia and Russia conflict ?

I sincerely hope you are referring to the state of Georgia.

Mr. President, All your efforts to make America prosperous will be futile if your country for which the first foundation was laid by God fearing ancestors and then built on Biblical principles continue to dishonour and disregard God your Creator.

” All your efforts to make America prosperous”… that’s the point, there aren’t any.

Mr President: Will you support Gay marriages in the future? Gays and Lesbians should be able to receive the same status and benefits as other Americans.

Currently, the same status and benefits are unemployment and public debt. If you want them you can have as much as you want.

And a few good questions, buried under tons of crap as usual.

Are you prepared to cut spending in a meaningful way to ensure that the younger people of this country are not left paying for the mistakes of previous generations?

How would you create new jobs, if there is hardly no industry production, inside US borders. Today, around 90% of all products used by Americans, are made outside of the USA. Almost everything we buy and use today is not produced here.
