  • I consider myself as a Conservative, just because there are people out there that call themselves Conservatives does not make them conservative. If we would expose those politicians for what they really are, there would be no need to change labels. What’s going to stop those that are calling themselves Conservatives now, call themselves Nationalist if that suits their fancy. Lets make Conservativism mean something rather then changing labels. The problem is not in labels it’s who we elect and re-elect. A corrupt politician is still a corrupt politician no matter what they call themselves.

      Thank you for the comments. Here is my perspective: I believe that names like conservative are more than just labels but have real meaning and power, which stresses their importance. And while I certainly agree that who we elect is a concern, there are far deeper problems with the basic structure of our government. That cannot be changed or resolved by an election, and it certainly wont be changed by the Republican Party. In my view we need a nationalist mass movement to affect the kind of transformational change we need.

  • You left out how the Gubermint has become a three tiered society of the Privileged, the Collectors, and Serfs.

    The Privileged are the Pols, Burrocrats, Unions (esp public), Greens, and a few other assorted cronies. They operate largely outside of market forces, funded by mandates on the Collectors.

    The Collectors are the Main Street owners and management who direct and manage the creation of the new wealth in the private sector that is the nation’s life blood. They are forced by the Privileged to collect the life blood from their workers (the Serfs), and turn this over to the Privileged.

    The Serfs are the workerbees for Main Street. They are hard working folks whose life force is redirected thru the Collectors to the Privileged for the Privileged own use. The Privileged make all sort of promises to the Serfs that they too will be in Paradise if they vote for more Privileged. To secure the deal, the Privileged hand out a few tidbits of their Privileged life outside of market forces to buy votes from the Serfs, and do so with the claim that the Serf’s suffering is all the Collectors fault.

    It’s a perfect system — for collecting votes. However, when it comes to balanced budgets and growing dynamic prosperity for all — not so much… But that sort of stuff only matters for those who earn money the hard way (aka the Collectors). It’s not a concern for the Privileged because there are so few Collectors and soooo many Serfs and even more living the fantasy on funemployment of some sort.

    What could possibly go wrong…
