Rethuglican Sen. Willard Romney, the lone Rethug who voted to keep masking and stifling little kids as young as 2 and for no good reason, has decided to call former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard a “treasonous liar” in her discussions of U.S. funded bio labs in Ukraine. Frankly I think Romney is treasonous in his vote for government-imposed child abuse of little kids. Pierre Delecto is scum.
And why is it that so many of today’s “liberals,” really not liberal but just leftists, are the warmongers of today? They want the U.S. government and military to get involved in the Russia-Ukraine war. I think one reason for such idiocy is the long-lasting Trump Derangement Syndrome they suffer, because many of them are brainwashed to believe that Trump colluded with Russia and Putin to steal the 2016 election, regardless of how debunked all those claims have been.
But many “conservatives” are just as bad in the warmongering. Like the leftists, the “conservatives” or neocons or “hawks” don’t mind the thought of having World War III and nuclear war.
I think that much of the responsibility in the irrationality of today belongs to the government schools. Education shouldn’t be run or controlled by the government. We are suffering from the disaster of government schools, euphemistically known as “public schools.” See Murray Rothbard on the education issue. We need to de-monopolize education away from government control, as well as de-monopolize everything else.
The society is collapsing before our very eyes because the majority of the population have been indoctrinated to believe whatever the government tells them, hook, line and sinker. Generations of people are indoctrinated to be non-independent thinking robots, obedient slaves of centralized regimes, federal, state and local.
Besides the Russia-Ukraine issue, another example that I have seen recently of how people don’t think or pay attention and just react emotionally to situations is in New Hampshire. A bill to put a question on the ballot for NH to secede from the “union” sunk like a rock.
This post shows tweets by some of the NH state representatives who clearly believed the bill was a vote to secede from the “union,” when it was a bill to just put the question on the ballot. Now, some of the representatives understood what the bill was, but they really believed that it was dangerous to let the commoners, or the riffraff as some of them see us, have a say as to whether or not become independent.
Why, how dare we. Even though the American Revolutionaries became independent from the British regime. They seceded.
Democrat state senators Lou D’Allesandro and Cindy Rosenwald tweeted that the House just voted to “secede from the United States.” No, you couple of morons, they voted whether or not to put the question on the ballot to let the citizens vote on the question!
Rep. David Meuse tweeted, “When they’re not attacking public health, teachers, local control, union members, voting rights and working people—some NH Republicans think it’s a good idea to attack America instead.”
“Attack America”? Look who’s attacking America, the one who opposes letting the people vote on an issue! And Rep. Manny Espitia tweeted, “These 13 Representatives should be ashamed of themselves. Their vote to secede from the United States of America is disgraceful.”
So, Manny not only shows his ignorance of what a bill actually proposes, he calls people who believe in independence “disgraceful.”
And this is New Hampshire, everybody. The “Live Free Or Die” state.
Several others quoted in that Free State blog use words like, “traitors,” “Batsh*t insane GOPers,” “right wing crazy group,” and so on.
So this is a result of our government-run and government-monopolized education system. No wonder more informed and rational people want to secede!
These people really need to read the Declaration of Independence, which reads in part, “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.”
And the Declaration goes on to list the abuses of the King. In today’s context, it can refer to the abuses of the U.S. regime in Washington. The IRS goes after conservatives and Tea Partiers, the IRS and Congress steal from the workers yet bureaucrats live high off the hog on the stolen workers’ earnings, the CIA provokes foreigners to make Americans less safe, the NSA spies on Americans without suspicion and due process, the FBI concocts “terrorist plots” so the FBI can thwart their own plots that they concoct, the FBI makes up conspiracies to kidnap governors to frame or entrap people, the FBI instigates Capitol riots and “insurrections” and then persecute those who attended a rally and puts innocent people in solitary confinement without charges, etc., etc., etc. What’s not to like about these people?
Speaking of the FBI instigating Capitol riots, I’m sure the people opposing letting citizens vote on secession and/or opposing secession itself would approve of FBI going after people who attended a Trump rally and having the rally attendees’ own teenage kids spy on them on behalf of the FBI.
As far as “treasonous” “traitors,” Romney should talk, given he imposed his RomneyCare on the people of Massachusetts just so he could use it as an “accomplishment” in his failed run for President.
And there are people who are brainwashed and believe that Americans must be loyal to the regime in Washington, like we have some sort of obligation as citizens. So if we criticize gubmint policies we are “traitors,” as we’re hearing from people who oppose Biden’s warmongering.
Sorry, fascists. It’s the government and its bureaucrats and senators who are obligated to be loyal to the people! The bureaucrats are the ones who swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution, which includes the Bill of Rights. It is the employees of government who are obligated to be loyal to the people, not the other way around!
Unfortunately, the trend now is toward an authoritarian reversal of the Constitutional definition of treason, to now refer to when citizens show disloyalty to the government or to its bureaucrats. If you criticize the regime you are a traitor, according to the new authoritarians.
And as far as secession and decentralization, ALL the states should secede and become separate independent “nation-states,” and that is the only way to preserve and protect the society as a free society. And then, of course, each state can further decentralize, all the cities and towns and so on. And most of the functions of society that are currently seized and usurped by government fascists can be handled locally, privately and voluntarily. No stealing, no compulsion or coercion by a monopolist fascist.
So, why exactly doesn’t our current collectivist centralization of power and dependence on Washington work if we want this to be a free society?
Because first of all the territory is just too big. Hundreds of thousands of square miles. And also too many people. The population of 330,000,000 is just too big to all be one single country or one single political unit. It’s like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.
Anyway, if you haven’t already learned the hard way by now, government is crap. It just is. And bureaucrats are scum. That’s just the way they are.
So to conclude, the nationalism and collectivism that has been going on mainly by the millions of obedient products of government schools, and the way the society is structured and centralized with government-monopolized functions, are not compatible with a free society.
