A premise in law enforcement is that ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking the law. In other words, if we break a law we didn’t know existed, we can still be punished for doing so. Unfortunately, in this asylum we all have to live in, there is no law enforcement agency to enforce the laws of economics and to punish those who break those laws.

There are two groups of economic lawbreakers. One is a very tiny group which includes central bankers, the 0.1 percenters, the elites within various NGO think-tanks, and a few political elites along with a few elite strategic thinkers with in governments. This tiny group does understand the laws of economics and they break those laws intentionally, because they and they alone have learned how to avoid the eventual punishment. The second group of economic lawbreakers, which is made up of ideologues mostly on the political “Left”, but also some pretend to be on the political “Right”, is very large and totally unaware that there is any such thing as laws of economics.

What the first group understands and the large second group does not is that the laws of economics can not be broken indefinitely, because the laws of economics has its own built-in mechanism for taking correction action, whereby, eventually, the punishment will be ruthlessly applied to the innocents along with the guilty (the few exceptions were noted above).

The innocents are also made up of two groups: those that intuitively know the ideologues are wrong; but probably couldn’t explain why, and those that are gullible enough believe they are going to benefit indefinitely from what the ideologues are offering.

Let’s talk about the ideologues. They dominate the governments nearly every country on the planet, as well as, artificial entities like the United Nations. What do the ideologues want? In the name of “social justice”, they want to redistribute wealth from rich people to poor people or, in the case of the UN, from rich countries (or countries that are perceived to be rich) to poor countries. In their twisted logic, it is unfair that some people and some countries are more prosperous than other people or other countries. Yet, in their minds, it is “fair” to force the more prosperous to give some of the fruits of their prosperity to the others.

No matter how many times they ideologues have seen their “social justice” policies fail they continue to believe by putting a different shade of lipstick on their pig that the pig will somehow become a princess.

What the ideologues have failed to learn in the last 100+ years is all the so-called “social justices” programs must be paid for from the wealth generated by the capitalist wealth generating entities. There is no other source of wealth. Therefore, those who want to benefit from the capitalist wealth generators must take care not to do unrepairable harm to those entities. And, here is a very important point I wish they could understand. It makes no difference whether those capitalist wealth generators are owned by the private sector or owned by the state. The wealth generators must be well cared for or they will not be able to generate sufficient wealth. That is true of a small family with a few capitalist wealth generating milk cows or a small nation dependent on its state owned capitalist wealth generating oil industry or nation like the United States with its myriad of privately owned capitalist wealth generating entities. When the capitalist wealth generators are not growing fast enough because of the growing demands of the “social justice” programs placed on them, there will be a terrible retribution to be paid. That is when nations fail. That is when empire fall. That is when the 99.9 percent are punished without mercy by the laws of economics.

{Please read this article to see what idiotic “social justice” Argentina is demanding with the support of the UN. They apparently believe that those who invested in Argentina’s bonds should be punished for being so stupid as to loan money to Argentina in the first place.}

The sad irony is that the ideologues, who profess to be the warriors for the poor and the working class, have only managed to help the 0.1 percenters and the tyrants of the world with “social justice” policies. The poor may appear to be benefiting for the time being. But, they will pay the most when the retribution comes… again.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?




Divide and Conquer Still Works

And, elections do have consequences

Well, this is not the post I thought I would be writing today. And, after twenty years of living outside of the country, this is not the America, or rather the Americans, I thought I knew. In the America I remember, a president who drove the economy into the ground, who passed a health care law that no body wanted and which will further injure the fragile economy, who totally destabilized the Middle-East, who left four Americans, including an Ambassador, to dir in a hell hole in Libya to die, who talk about the reason to vote as a chance to get revenge, who for four years pitted one group of Americans against an other group; that president would never of had a chance to be reelected. That president would have been defeated by a landslide.

Clearly the America I remember has changed. Americans have changed. I do not like this new America. And, frankly, I am ashamed of the just over 50% of American voters who voted to return to office the worst president in American history. I have never felt that way before when my candidate didn’t win. This election was different. This election was to decide the fate of our nation and quite possibly that of Western civilization. I belive that! It was totally understandable when Americans elected Barack Obama in 2008. Yesterday¡s election is not understandable, at least not to me.

The Strategy of Divide and Conquer Still Works

The strategy of divide and conquer is a s old as time. Barack Hussein Obama, David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, and others proved once again that this strategy still works. They pitted women’s rights against conservatism, they pitted blacks and minorities against a nation founded by rich white racists, they pitted gays against traditional American values, they pitted Islam and political correctness against Jews and Christians, and they pitted the rich against everyone else. They even pitted success against failure. The divided this country like I have never seen before. In so doing, they won the right to continue their failed policies for another four years.

Elections Have Consequences

Chief Justice Roberts, in his writing of the majority opinion on the Affordable Care Act said that elections have consequences and that the Court could not protect people from the consequences of their votes.

The consequences of yesterday’s votes will not be long in coming. The Lame Duck Congress will now have no choice but to face up to the Fiscal Cliff in front of our nation. The debt ceiling will be raised again. Obamacare taxes our in our immediate future. Most of the so-called Bush Tax Cuts will be allowed to expire. Payroll taxes will likely resume. Taxes on the rich, including Capital Gain taxes will increase, the sequestration package will have to be revisited; especially as it affects military’s budget. And, America will likely see its credit rating down graded again.

America as we have known it will not die a sudden death. America, like Europe, will continue to spin around the drain of mediocrity. I already live in a third world country. You, my friends will get a taste of what that means in the decade ahead. Some day in the future the world’s monetary system will collapse and that will be a tragedy of epic proportions. Out of that tragedy a new world order will eventually emerge. What will it be? Nobody knows.

Is this the end of the Republican Party? Will that be one of the consequences of this election? probably not; but, in my opinion, it should be. What good is a Republican Party that could not defeat the worst president ever? There will be a lot of finger-pointing. One of the principle targets will rightly be the media.  Objective honest reporting has become the exception rather than the rule. Most of the media has been bought and paid for and are now nothing more than the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party. I do not see that changing any time soon. Although alternative media will continue to grow in influence, the zombies will continue to watch their televisions and therefore, will continually be bombarded with liberal propaganda.

What will become of conservative blogging? Most of us sprang to life after the 2008 election and were energized even more after the 2010 elections. I will bot be surprised if some of the bloggers I have followed stop writing all together. Others will probably post less often. For those who have blessed me by participating in the discussions here at Conservatives on Fire can be sure that I will continue to write about politics, the economy, and continue opining for what that is worth. Unlike most blogger, who have a life apart from blogging, this blog is a central part of my life. Health reasons restrict my activities, so you can be sure I will still be here if you want to come by and see what the old man is ranting about now. I strongly believe that the resistance must continue.

Well, now you know what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

Original Post:  Conservatives on Fire


Why I support Ron Paul


A few weeks ago I wrote an article titled I’m not the same conservative I was five years ago. In the article I describe my transformation from being a conservative who supported candidates with an “R” in front their name to a conservative who now supports a candidate whose first name begins with the letter “R.”  I wouldn’t have supported Ron Paul five years ago, but I do now because as I have said he’s the only candidate talking about liberty and liberty is what will save us. We are in such dire straits as a nation we can no longer turn a blind eye to these watered down conservatives claiming to be something they’re not.  Why has Ron Paul had limited time during the debates? Why has the media ignored him?  Why is it that in a time when we’re in such economic turmoil, the talking heads point out Ron Paul’s foreign policy position (which by the way aligns more with the foreign policy position of our founding fathers) and ignore his position that promotes a free market economy and capitalism.  Are they afraid of the message?  Are they worried that his stance on a number of issues could rock the status quo boat?  Ask yourself if the election of watered down conservatives in the past has advanced the conservative cause?  From where I sit it has actually made it worse.  We can’t afford to nominate another RINO or big government conservative.

Mitt Romney is a RINO plain and simple. The left is going to beat him up with RomneyCare and his flip flopping on the issues.  I don’t trust him as far as I can throw him.  Newt Gingrich might be a solid debater, but he’s also phony conservative who has supported big government programs in the past.  Before you throw your support behind Gingrich check out this article over at National Review Online; his record speaks for itself. Herman Cain has always my second choice, but his inability to effectively handle the sexual harassment charges hurled at him from the left has hurt him terribly.  He has lost key support with women and some social conservatives; support I feel he will not be able to recapture.  Rick Perry is in a state of flux right now.  I think he has the potential and money to make a run and I like what he has to say but because he is such a poor debater I’m afraid he won’t be able to stand toe to toe with Obama in a debate and win.  So this brings me to Ron Paul and why I support the man.

Ron Paul has been consistent in his message. He believes the key to America’s success rest with individual liberty.  He wants to bring an end to the manipulation of our currency by bringing an end to the FED.  He wants to eliminate the income tax and the IRS.  Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac would also be on his to-do list to shut down. His strong desire to reduce the size of government by eliminating wasteful agencies that stifle the growth of the free market throug

h their regulations is something all conservatives should get behind and embrace.  He wants to make our military a more effective force by eliminating wasteful programs and reducing our footprint throughout the globe.  He wants to get us back on the gold standard, forcing the government to live within its means because they will be unable to just print money.  These are a few things that Ron Paul wants to change about D.C. and they scare the hell out of both the left and right. I want to close the article with some quotes from Ron Paul. Please take the time to read them and if by the end you still can’t back Ron Paul, then what kind of conservative are you supporting?  Think about it.

Ron Paul quotes:

1913 wasn’t a very good year. 1913 gave us the income tax, the 16th amendment and the IRS.

A system of capitalism presumes sound money, not fiat money manipulated by a central bank. Capitalism cherishes voluntary contracts and interest rates that are determined b

y savings, not credit creation by a central bank.

All initiation of force is a violation of someone else’s rights, whether initiated by an individual or the state, for the benefit of an individual or group of individuals, even if it’s supposed to be for the benefit of another individual or group of individuals.

Another term for preventive war is aggressive war – starting wars because someday somebody might do something to us. That is not part of the American tradition.

Believe me, the next step is a currency crisis because there will be a rejection of the dollar, the rejection of the dollar is a big, big event, and then your personal liberties are going to be severely threatened.

Capitalism should not be condemned, since we haven’t had capitalism.

Deficits mean future tax increases, pure and simple. Deficit spending should be viewed as a tax on future generations, and politicians who create deficits should be exposed as tax hikers.

How did we win the election in the year 2000? We talked about a humble foreign policy: No nation-building; don’t police the world. That’s conservative, it’s Republican, it’s pro-American – it follows the founding fathers. And, besides, it follows the Constitution.

I am absolutely opposed to a national ID card. This is a total contradiction of what a free society is all about. The purpose of government is to protect the secrecy and the privacy of all individuals, not the secrecy of government. We don’t need a national ID card.

I am just absolutely convinced that the best formula for giving us peace and pr

eserving the American way of life is freedom, limited government, and minding our own business overseas.

I will always vote what I have promised, and always vote the Constitution, as well as I will not vote for one single penny that isn’t paid for, because debt is the monster, debt is what’s going to eat us up and that is why our economy is on the brink.

If you like small government you need to work hard at having a strong national defense that is not so militant. Personal liberty is the purpose of government, to protect liberty – not to run your personal life, not to run the economy, and not to pretend that we can tell the world how they ought to live.

Of course I’ve already taken a very modest position on the monetary system, I do take the position that we should just end the Fed.

Our country’s founders cherished liberty, not democracy.

The obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people.

There is nothing wrong with describing Conservatism as protecting the Constitution, protecting all things that limit government. Government is the enemy of liberty. Government should be very restrained.

There is only one kind of freedom and that’s individual liberty. Our lives come from our creator and our liberty comes from our creator. It has nothing to do with government granting it.

You don’t have freedom because you are a hyphenated American; you have freedom because you are an individual, and that should be protected.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

Order out of Chaos? – Part II


In Part I of this two-part series,  we talked about the imenent US recession, the fragile situation of the European Union and, the world-wide debt bubble being a the bursting point. We also talked about the chaos the will envelop the whole world when the credit bubble is pricked by some event; be that from within the EU or from an event outside of the EU. Today we will talk about some of the options of bringing order out of the chaos and how these options should impact our thinking on the coming elections in the US.

Before we get started, we need to touch on the events of the last couple of days that are relevent to this discussion. Two or three days ago the International Monetary fund (IMF) declared the world was within two or three weeks of an economic meltdown. This declaration by the IMF was not hyperbola, but it was unusual because the last bankers would ever do is to spark panic within the financial sectors. The IMF did this for one reason only and that was to put the fear of God into the governments of France and Germany to guarantee the solvency of the EU banks. The threat by the IMF worked perfectly. Yesterday France and Germany announced they would protect the banks of the EU and immediately the world’s stock markets responded with dramatic rallies. Does this mean the that the threat of world-wide economic meltdown has gone away? Not hardly. It means only that the European Union has kicked its can down the road a little bit further.

Does anyone or any group benefit from the chaos that is coming? In a backhanded way, the answer is yes. For example, many within the Marxist/socialist camp have longed for economic chaos to occur so that they can finally lead the world into their idea of a world-wide socialist utopia. Also, the One World Order (OWO) proponents have often felt that their best shot of implementing one currency for the world with a Word Central Bank and essentially one governing body for the world is if the world were to find itself in economic chaos. And, more than a few Libertarian pundits have suggested that the only way to save America is for a total economic collapse to occur first and then people would finally be willing to listen to them and we could rebuild out of the ashes the America our Founders intended.

We needn’t spend time talking about the Marxist/socialist. We know that they are a powerful minority in America because they have patiently over the years gained control of our media, our education system, Hollywood and, and they now have one of their own occupying the White House.

But, what about the OWO types? Are they for real? When we conservatives bring up what we call the banksters and the OWO types, we are often branded as tin hatters. The OWO types are real. They are made up of the worlds largest banks in Europe and the US. They have been working hand-in-hand with the big government political elites and a few major corporations for years. Since Nixon separated the dollar from gold in 1971 and the world adopted the fiat dollar as its reserve currency, these people have for all practical purposes been running the world. The Marxist/socialist have unwittingly been used as their useful idiots.

So, how will order from chaos be restored to America? There may be several options but yours truly is only capable of seeing two.

Option 1 _ One World Order

A good friend recently sent me an e-mail with an article from ForcingChange.org titled One World, One Money. I hope you will take time to read this article. For now i want to share with some quotes that are contained in the article:

…the idea of a single global currency has been quietly batted around in banking and economist circles since the closing days of the Second World War.[7] Over the years this call has increased in intensity. Consider some quotes,

1969: “Let me turn from digging away at the opposition to something more positive, and start with the best and worst of international monetary systems. The first-best, in my judgment, is a world money with a world monetary authority.”[8]— Charles P. Kindleberger, [Professor of Economics, MIT], speaking at a Federal Reserve Bank of Boston conference.

1984: “I have put forward a radical alternative scheme for the next century: the creation of a common currency for all the industrial democracies with a common monetary policy and a joint Bank of Issue to determine that monetary policy…This proposal is far too radical for the near future, but it could provide a ‘vision’ or goal which can guide interim steps…”[9] — Richard N. Cooper [professor, Harvard], speaking at a Federal Reserved Bank of Boston conference.

1998: “…the transition to a single currency for the entire world could come with a speed that might surprise many. The world might easily move from having almost 200 currencies today to having one within a decade, and twenty-five years from now, historians would wonder why it took so long to eliminate the Babel of currencies which existed in the twentieth century.” — Bryan Taylor, Chief Economist at Global Financial Data.[10]

2001: “When VISA was founded twenty-five years ago, the founders saw the world as needing a Single Global Currency for exchange. Everything we’ve done from a global perspective has been about trying to put one piece in place after another to fulfill that global vision.”[11] — Sarah Perry, Director of VISA’s Strategic Investment Program.

2004: “…if the global market economy is to thrive over the decades ahead, a global currency seems the logical concomitant.” — Martin Wolf, chief economics commentator for the Financial Times, former senior economist at the World Bank.[12]

The people promoting the OWO concepts are not wearing tin hats. They are people connected to the most powerful banks in the world who in turn are supported by the big government political elites and their crony corporatist. A OWO would indeed bring about order from the chaos; but at what price? The price would be our sovereignty and most of our freedom. The idea that is America would become a footnote in history. How can this plan have any chance of being pulled off? No country, least of all America, is going to give-up its sovereignty and submit to some world authority, right? To understand how it could indeed become an acceptable solution one must let their imagination go to its limits. Try, if you can, to imagine what is implied when the IMF talked about the imminent world-wide economic melt down. folks, we are talking about world-wide panic. Trade in the world would be disrupted. There would be food shortages and people starving. There would energy shortages. Money would have no meaning. This, my friends, is what chaos means.Once the world has suffered a living hell long enough, the OWO types with the support of the political elites will offer to bring order to world once again and many will jump at the chance.

Option 2 _  The Rebirth of America

It is my opinion that the freedom loving conservatives and Libertarians of these United States  are the only hope for bringing order out of the chaos without giving up our sovereignty and freedoms. The announcement by France and Germany to back-up European banks was a great blessing for us. From our point of view, the worst of all scenarios would be for the credit bubble to burst and the for the chaos to ensue before our elections. There can be little doubt that Barack Obama and the Fed would fall prey to the bankers offer. If the credit bubble stays intact until after our elections, we still have a chance to save America. We must elect those who believe strongly enough in America to resist the temptation of saving the banks once again. The path to order out of the chaos will take great will. It will be necessary to abandon our fiat dollar in favor of one backed by something(s) of real value. It will be necessary to abandon the decades of big government policy and return to the ideas of our Founders. This will be the hard choice. The easy choice will be to turn the world over to the bankers once and for all.

So, if you believe that world chaos is on the way as I do, and if the only ways to reclaim order in our world are as I described, does it affect your opinion on candidates for the coming elections? For me it does. Were we in something closer to normal times, I would be throwing support behind Herman Cain as the best among the current candidates. However, we are in anything but normal times. I believe the credit bubble will burst. I believe the world will be thrown into chaos. And, although i am not a Libertarian, I am convinced that we need Libertarians to lead us out of the chaos once it arrives on our shores. Therefore, I as Conservatives on Fire, will throw my insignificant weight behind Ron Paul. Paul is steeped in the Austrian School of economics and, in my opinion, that is what we are going to need if there is any hope of saving the America we all love.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
