Ronald Reagan arrived in 1949 at the third plateau of his political journey. First had come his disillusionment with the general bureaucracy as an adjutant in the Army. Then there had been his revelation at Jimmy Roosevelt’s that Communists were enemies of the Constitution. And now, having seen what happened when the economic order was forcibly turned upside down—civil servants becoming civil masters—“I shed the last ideas I’d ever had about government ownership of anything.” Ronald Reagan as written by Edmund Morris from the book, “Dutch.”
In the week before Christmas, guess what the government brought just ahead of Santa’s sleigh. On Tuesday the FCC took a power move using NET NEUTRALITY to get its feet in the door of internet regulation. And on Wednesday the President signed the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Act,”
Last year Health Care was put on the table, the day before Christmas.
So why do you think these large, controversial government power grabs are introduced and signed during the busy season of Christmas?
Because THEY know the American public is too busy to pay attention.
Glenn Beck did a nice piece on just this sort of thing and explains how public opinion is shaped. Listen to that here:
Think about it, why is “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” important. Sex is something that even human beings in extremely healthy sexual relationships spend less than 5% of their time pursuing. So why would we build a policy completely on the bases of sexual preference.
I could care less of there are military men and women that are gay. It’s a complete non-issue, doesn’t matter in the least. But I don’t want to know about the sexual preferences of the people around me. It’s none of my business, and really occupies a small part of my thoughts.
It’s all about the grand distraction. It’s about keeping our minds on these little issues while the big issues get passed under thousands of pages of law that nobody has time to read, and the public is too distracted to comprehend.
So when we get to a holiday, pay attention to what gets initiated, and that’s how you can figure out the intentions of your government, that you completely fund with tax dollars, in fact, government is nothing without our funding.
So why are we funding it to turn on us like they do? We should cut it down dramatically and take away the wheels that move it along because if all government has to do is introduce bills that are intrusive, such as that of Net Neutrality, they are absolutely useless. The internet has done just fine without the government. Their interest in it is purely out of self-preservation.
Listen here while Bill Cunningham discusses with a congressman what states are losing house seats and why. You will find this discussion to be extremely revealing.
Ronald Reagan had begun his adult life as an idealistic young man flirting with joining the communist party, and the general liberal politics of Hollywood. As he lived life, he had moved through the phases mentioned in the opening paragraph, just as many do who live life and have enough intelligence to adjust their views over time to correspond with reality.
That’s how Reagan became one of the greatest presidents and world leaders in memory. He understood the journey of arriving at conservatism.
The policies introduced though in these under handed manners, such as Net Neutrality, and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and Health Care are conceived by people who have not yet lived real lives. They are dramatically flawed people who view the world with warped glasses shaped by unlived lives, and they try to inflict their wishes while the rest of the world is distracted. Because if normal people were paying attention, they’d put a stop to the non-sense.
