On The Aftermath Of A GOP Victory

26 October 2018 @ 14:27

Mark Steyn, over at SteynOnline:

…It’s disgusting to see a Republican senatorial shoo-in, the next Emir of Incumbistan, too lazy to give any serious thought to the subject before reflexively virtue-signaling his compliance.

Commentator George Pazin left the following remark:

Alas, it’s also to be expected from just about every Republican save Trump…

We’re going on and on and on about denying the Democrats a victory in November, but do we [I mean the Remnant of the American people who get it] understand that we’re setting ourselves up for a frustrating two years of GOPe control?

Do we understand that the President is part of the problem?

Citing Mr. Reagan then Mr. Trump, Roger Kimball writes:

This truth is the deep insight contained in President Trump’s powerful op-ed. Like Reagan, he criticizes government run, single-payer health care schemes for the misery, inefficiency, and loss of freedom they entail. But he understands that the ultimate project is not just to control health care. It is to control all of us. “Every single citizen will be harmed by such a radical shift in American culture and life,” the President observes, noting that “Virtually everywhere it has been tried, socialism has brought suffering, misery and decay.” His only mistake is the word “virtually.”

As President Trump points out, the Democrats’ health care bill is but one piece of a larger project. Another big piece involves what he calls the Democrats commitment to “open borders socialism.” If the Democrats’ attack on border control is successful, that would encourage a Camp of the Saints-like tsunami of illegal immigration, Millions would flood our borders and consume our health care and welfare services. The result would be not just the end of American prosperity but also American exceptionalism and the freedom and limited government it presupposes.

This is what is at stake in the midterm elections. The choice is between mobs on the one hand and jobs on the other. Between the caravan of criminal would-be invaders wending its orchestrated way through Mexico towards our Southern border and the bustling economy that has seen historic growth, consumer confidence, and employment figures. Socialism or the free market. It’s the choice between Caracas and Odessa, Texas, between poverty and prosperity, between servitude and freedom. The Democrats offer the former but wrap it up in pleasant sounding humanitarian rhetoric. Let’s hope that the people voting in a couple of weeks see through this malevolent charade.

Not one mention of…I don’t know…say: The Deficit.  Funny how that term never comes-up anymore.

We’re cheering-on President Trump and Republican control of both Houses of the Congress, but we can’t hide from ourselves our Duty and Responsibility to see that the Budget is balanced, so that our Posterity can do the same.

We cannot pass on the burdens we have created, and that those who came before us have created, to our Posterity — such actions are a Mortal Sin.

    We shall continue to be disappointed in results of our elections because those the majority of those we elect are already or will become institutionalized if not institutionalists. However every cycle we seem to gain a little ground. We elected dozens of ”Tea Party” candidates in 2010, almost all of them disappointed us. No matter ones view on Trump, one can’t argue with most of his policies. Ronald Reagan accomplished much but failed to accomplish even more, not abolishing the Education department is among many examples. Another is failing to change the GOP into a Conservative institution. We can’t fight all of our battles at once and we certainly won’t win them all. The best we can hope to achieve is to create the conditions where bad men are incentivized to do the right thing for the wrong reasons.

    Yeah the deficit. It’s like that big meteor in Armageddon, it’s happened before and it’ll happen again.

    I quit asking my Congressman how he can continue to vote for these “omnibus” budgets that spend over a trillion dollars every year in fairy dust money-it’s always the same bullshit answer. He’s got his and when TSHTF, too bad for the rest of us pee-ons.

    Deficits matter mostly because you care about the problems you are passing on to your posterity. In a multiracial empire like the U.S. nobody really has any posterity, and it becomes a contest over what you can grab before it all runs out (“it” being the accumulated and present day wealth and cultural stability of white society). The problem of the commons. In our guts we all know the future of America is as a third-world dump, and deficits and financial collapse are inevitable. Why get worked up over inevitable biology driven disaster? The only thing you can do is kick the can farther down the road and hope to live well before that collapse comes.
