Faith in The Man

Milan Skarka

Why do we put so much faith in the man? Whether it may be election of the President or other politician, a holly man or other selected authoritative functionary, were voluntarily substituting someones authority to do for us that should be done by ourselves.  “We The Peoplefill history with excruciating abdications of individual liberty and responsibility, which of course is antithetic to our personal well-being.

The recent election is over (for the love of God) and people are settling down to their routines and daily lives again. Country is still divided and the two main ideological thoughts remain.

The Democrat left will likely never change and can be timelessly defined by what a character in Dostoyevskys «Идиот» says about liberals: “…according to my numerous observations, our liberal is incapable of allowing anyone to have his own opinion without responding to his opponent with curses or worse…”

On the other side there was a lot of talk aboutReaganismand its principles before, during and even after the elections. I fear I despise propaganda, even propaganda for things I agree with. And of course the Republicans are simply trying to cloak themselves in the mantle of RonaldReagan, though they will never follow the path he laid out for them. And that’s besides the fact that Reagan was not so great a conservative/libertarian president as folks believe-which is not to say that he didn’t do some good things: certainly he was the closest thing to a good president we’ve had in the twentieth century; but I think his reputation among conservatives and libertarians is overblown. He was a few notches above the rest, but he was not a great president.

Interesting that there are now petitions from all 50 States in favor of secession. These petitions are merely intended to be symbolic and not the serious beginnings of a real movement to secede. This is what I’ve suspected all along. In any case, when the White House finally does respond to these petitions, it will certainly deny the right of the States to secede. The better way to go about this, at least for the time being, would be for the States to refuse all Federal money. Nearly everything the National Government imposes on the States is tied to mandates :if you take money for this, you must obey us in that. However, the State governments are, in their own way, just as bad as the Federal Government: they have in essence become welfare queens and will never give up one of their principal sources of income just to gain independence.

As long as the Union was faithful to her trust
Like friends and like brethren, kind were we, and just
But now, when Northern treachery attempts our rights to mar
We hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

Hurrah! Hurrah!
For Southern rights, hurrah!
Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

Then here’s to our Confederacy, strong we are and brave,
Like patriots of old we’ll fight, our heritage to save;
And rather than submit to shame, to die we would prefer,
So cheer for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

Hurrah! Hurrah!
For Southern rights, hurrah!
Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star.

However, there is a rule of thumb: things are never as good, or as bad, as they seem at the timeso put this in your pipe and smoke it.
