“Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.”
By Alden L. Benton
I am tired.
I am tired of the mule muffins littering the landscape. So today, I am going to channel my inner Drill Instructor and willfully become blatantly politically incorrect.
The left will call me a bully, if, indeed, they are that polite, but I do not care. Some things need saying and I am not afraid to say them.
George Orwell once said, “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” Political correctness is the antithesis of liberty and I choose liberty and freedom over the tyranny of political correctness.
To make myself clear, mule muffins are the worthless globs of waste left behind by jackasses, in this case, the political left.
To the jackasses of the left: You lost. Get over it.
The system worked as designed. Get over it.
You fielded a flawed candidate who lost. Get over it.
Your candidate ran an ineffective campaign and lost. Get over it.
The statist agenda of the left has failed. Get over it.
The wisdom of Ronald Reagan illuminates the adverse effects of statism. Statism is a system where human rights are derived from the government not, as the Declaration of Independence states, from the laws of nature and nature’s God.
Ronald Reagan said, “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.”
In contrast, H.L. Mencken, best illustrates the underlying principles of statism when he said, “The urge to save humanity is almost always a false face for the urge to rule it.”
To the sensitive little snowflakes hiding in their university safe spaces: Man up and get over it. You are in more danger from the Boogeyman than you are from the president-elect.
To the nattering nabobs of negativity, the prevaricating reprobates otherwise known as the mainstream media: You failed. Get over it.
Instead of doubling down with lies, hyperbole, and hysteria, perhaps it is time for some serious introspection by the media as to why their credibility is in the toilet ready to be flushed into irrelevance.
To all who voted red in November: Thank you.
It is time to celebrate as America took a giant step back from the abyss of social statism. However, once the inaugural balls are over, the hard work begins.
Once the new president takes his seat in the oval office, we must continue to exert pressure to ensure he starts the nation firmly down the path that leads to liberty and justice for all and in this quest, we must not fall victim to the siren call of the false prophet of bipartisanism. Bipartisanism is the code word of the Republican Party establishment for “we like things that protect our cozy little powerbase.”
To the party establishment: we won — get over it.
To the new president and Congress: We won.
We have an opportunity to repair our nation by restoring the rule of law and the founding principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. We have the opportunity to limit the size and scope of our government and thereby to increase the blessings of ordered liberty.
However, as citizens we must hold Congress and the new president accountable. We must hold the president-elect to his promises to “Make America Great Again,” for if we fail, we all lose, and we will not have the opportunity to get over it.
“When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty.”
~John Basil Barnhill
“When plunder has become a way of life for a group of people living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it, and a moral code that glorifies it.”
