A Second Opinion

Russ Steele

In the early 1960s Ellen and I lived a few miles from the Canada/US border.  We received TV signals from US stations and Canadian TV stations.  We found it interesting to listen to both news sources, as Canada newscasters often had a very different view of important events.  It was interesting to contrast and compare views.

Now we have access to Canadian News and Views on the Internet and it is useful to contrast and compare. This morning I found this story in the Canada Free Press very insightful, though is was written by an American and published in a Canadian Newspaper: The Progressive’s Foundation of Lies

For all practical purposes, the Democratic Party no longer exists. Its leadership has been taken over by the Progressives. That the Progressives themselves are in fact thinly disguised Marxists / Socialists & Communists is only now beginning to be recognized by any significant portion of the American public. Unfortunately for all of us, the Progressive movement has deep roots in the GOP establishment as well. The Progressive’s political philosophy is based on a foundation of lies, three of which are the cornerstones upon which virtually all of their other lies are built. Those three big lies are as follows:

  1. Progressives claim to be the only ones who care about the have-nots, the poor, the weak and the helpless
  2. Convincing the American people that the rich and their “greedy” corporations have attained their wealth by ripping-off and unfairly exploiting the poor
  3. Human activities are destroying our environment and indeed the earth itself

To read the supporting evidence to each of these claims go HERE.  The article concludes with his solution:

The solution to all of this would I think be obvious to all rational observers. The key to it lies in kicking the Progressives out of our government, and putting our natural resources to work. I won’t delve into the politics of it here, but our incredible energy reserves are clearly the solution once we rid ourselves of all the Marxists and Globalists in our government.

America should start drilling for both petroleum and natural gas everywhere it can. We can start immediately in ANWR in Alaska, and offshore on the East and West coasts as well as in the Gulf. We need to remove all restrictions from the coal miners as well, and start building refineries and nuclear power plants right away. Doing this will jumpstart our economy in a heartbeat. 

Doing this can also solve our problem with the world of Islam. By getting back into the energy business, we can literally bankrupt the Arabs along with Chavez as an added bonus. We can do this simply by telling the holders of our debt that the only way we’ll be able to pay down our debt is if they start buying all of their oil, gas & coal from us, and at attractive prices to boot. We don’t have to take all of their customers away from the OPEC nations in order to bankrupt them. The OPEC states have developed huge infrastructures in order to develop and market their oil resources. By taking away well under half of their customers, the cost of their infrastructures will bankrupt them by itself.

Anti-American sentiment in Europe and elsewhere will not help them, because America represents the single biggest market for almost all of the goods made in most of those countries. By requiring a balance of trade between America and these other nations, they’ll have to buy our oil, gas & coal if they want us to buy their export products. We won’t even have to engage in the traditional weapons of international trade such as tariffs in order to do this us. We can achieve our objective simply by undercutting OPEC’s pricing. We have such huge reserves that we can easily afford to do this for as long as it takes in order to bankrupt them. Once the flow of oil dollars to the terrorist states and organizations dry up, they’ll soon disappear. Their leaders will lose their grip on their people without their oil wealth, and once they collapse their people can either choose to join the community of civilized nations or return to their ancestral roots as the ignorant and bigoted goat herds that they once were.

By returning to a true “free market” economy, America will return to her former glory, as the most prosperous and free nation on earth. The first step is right in front of us. If we don’t take it, all is lost. We must do whatever is necessary to defeat Obama in 2012. If we’re forced to hold our noses a bit when we vote, that will be a small sacrifice that we should be happy to make if it puts us back on the right track.

    The problem is to fix it we must get the word out to the voter. To get the word out we need to use progressive news casters and when we get the word out many people would still not understand the dangers of the current government so would ignore the message. Even if we get a Republican in office, we may not be much better off and the current leaders of the pack all have a progressive lite to them and Ron Paul will not be elected.

    All I can say is – Yep it would work just fine, thats how we got here

    The Progressives used to be united. They handled moral socialism and economic socialism as one Party. Thus Alcohol Prohibition. Now the Party is divided and the Republicans handle the moral socialism and the Democrats handle the economic socialism.

    It is great having a two party system. The voters love it.
