Seriously, the idea that being quarantine is violating her rights without any concerns of the right, for others who may come in contact with her if she did have ebola, to living ebola free just shows the level of selfishness on this womans part. It takes a special kind of “person” to elevate the rights of the self above the rights and safety of others. Grant it, I think the ebola hysteria is blown way over board by the rantings-hungry media, but a virus can mutate and become airborne at any given time. All it needs is a special protein shell and it’s longevity is increased. I don’t believe, then, that it’s irrational to quarantine health workers returning from ebola stricken countries. Its common sense. Please, I beg you, if I had to go an ebola stricken country and come back to the States, please quarantine me because the horror of passing on such a horrible virus would eat at my soul daily if I happened to survive.
However, what’s worse is the Obama Administration pushing to have quarantine by states to be reversed. Why would a leader be so reckless with his country? Why jeopardize millions of Americans? Clearly, he either has no care for the American people whatsoever or is trying to appease people via political correctness. There’s no other sane and rational explanation for this type of action. We can’t simply endanger even one person just because others might be offended or simply because of political posturing during an Election cycle.
When it comes down to the nitty gritty of all of this it’s really simply a conglomeration of media frenzy, politicians from both sides being vote hungry jackasses and a gullible public. Yes, ebola isn’t as bad as the public figures it to be, but that doesn’t mean vigilance and proper infectious disease safety protocols should be sacrificed. That is simply insane and irresponsible. For the Obama Administration to be pushing for a reversal in quarantine procedures by states for ANY reason is treasonous because it lacks any concern for the health and safety of the American people.
For years, the dwellers of gated communities, chiefly those who the run the country, keep making decisions on OUR behalf that ONLY affect us. From ObamaCare to shipping illegals who may or may not be violent, diseased ridden or all of the above, into OUR communities the elite in power don’t care about their decisions and how it affects us. That’s because they feel absolutely safe behind the walls of their gated communities. And that is the crux of the problem, they are cut off from reality, they are cut off from the ordinary people they rule like kings over. We are in the middle of the new serfdom where the oligarchs tax us and say it’s for our benefit. Of course, in the course of taxation they pad their pockets with our money and give themselves raises for doing hardly anything worth while. The Republicans and Democrats are both fascists cloaked differently in order to prop up the illusion of democracy in this country. This isn’t some conspiracy theory nonsense, hell I don’t even like Alex Jones, it’s simply common sense backed by observation. Just observe the actions of the politicians from both sides of the aisle and you will see in plain sight the similarities between the two heads of the fascist hydra currently residing in DC.
Instead of the People realizing this and uniting against the fascism in this country the oligarchs pull our strings and make us dance to their whim whether it’s the class warfare cry or racial instigation to keep us thoroughly divided. If we can’t unite beyond petty differences like race, religion, political ideology and whatever else then the elitists in power have no fear of losing their grip on power. So, for now the elitists who behind their gated walls conspire to keep us complacent subjects by promising things they can never deliver, but that’s part of the illusion anyways.
A much as I believe that any Third Party that gains power will simply do the same I do believe as well that a Third Party candidate defeating a major party candidate will send shockwaves to the elitists that they are no longer safe from the consequences of their decisions on our behalf. I think the Libertarian Party, Green Party and whomever else willing to confront the oligarchs will rile up DC and get them realizing something: that they aren’t invincible. Oligarchs need to be reminded where the true power lies and it’s definitely not with them, but with us the common folk.
Those of us clamoring for a leader towards the future of Liberty and the vanquishing of fascism in this country need to become leaders ourselves. If no one else is going to step up to the plate then it is our sacred duty and honor to take the lead. We can’t wait any longer for a new George Washington or Ronald Reagan, but to become those people ourselves. We must look inside and find that leader in each of us and to create not followers, but new leaders. We must not ever become a nation of followers, but a nation of leaders. Followers progress us nowhere but towards tyranny.
Lead, Do Not Follow.
At times I become so apathetic towards politics that I simply slip away for months without ever looking at a news website, watching Glenn Beck or even writing in this blog, but recently my girlfriend and I plan on having a child and thus has become my duty to become vigilant when it comes to politics both here in the US and abroad. As our society becomes more globalization helped along by technology it’s prudent to stay on top of current events such as the Crisis in Iraq and Common Core because the long-term ramifications for our future child will be poignant.
So what exactly do I believe? It’s better to just list my beliefs:
I believe in gay marriage
How exactly do two people of the same gender marrying affect me? It seriously doesn’t much like Brittany Spears and other celebrities who abuse the institution of marriage for their own attention whoring.
I believe in the 2nd Amendment
The right for people to own guns should always be upheld because it ensures that the government will always be afraid of it’s citizens because they can and will always be armed to the teeth. That’s how it should be, the government fearing its citizens rather than citizens being fearful of their government.
I believe in religious rights
Christians today are taking a pounding by secularists maybe for good reason, but bashing an entire religion on the merits of a few really is silly. Plus, banning things like a cross erected 5 decades ago bought and paid for by ordinary citizens is even more silly. Leave it alone, it’s a memorial to the dead. Also, a Christian business should be given the right to put their business at risk by denying patronage to gay couples. In the end, they’ll revoke their own ban due to low amount of customers patronizing their business.
I believe Common Core is evil
Common Core reduces competition between good and bad schools by leveling the playing field. It also brings with it strange ways of doing math for example. The new way of math makes it harder for parents to their duty as parents and help their children scholastically. It makes schools more dependent on the Federal government as opposed to local communities and the people who fund those schools with their tax money. Taking examples from totalitarian and failing countries is not a good way to reform our education system.
I believe in Universal Healthcare
Obamacare is the biggest foul up ever to grace our country. I believe in Universal Healthcare, but I think it needs a more 21st Century revision in order to make it work effectively without putting peoples lives at risk. It needs to take the Hippocratic Oath to the fullest extent. It doesn’t need to be the rationed out healthcare that Conservatives are afraid of. With brilliant minds and innovation we Americans could make it work better than the European brand of Universal Healthcare.
I believe in School Choice
Every parent should be able to choose what type of school their child goes to whether it’s public or private or even home schooling and have it be affordable as well. The misplaced fear in George W. Bush voucher program was nothing more than Liberals wishing to subjugate parental choice. This to me is treasonous in that Liberals are forgoing a childs future for their own political gain.
I believe in being environmentally friendly
Lets face it, no one wants dirty air, polluted waters or to have the beautiful scenery that Nature bestows upon us to be blotted out by vast concrete and asphalt strip malls and parking lots. So, it is our duty as sentient beings to want to take care of the environment and make sure no more animals go extinct because of our existence.
I don’t believe Socialism/Communism is the answer
Now, I’m sure the naysayers will be quick to point out that my support of Universal Healthcare is hypocritical, however I don’t believe so. I can accept one component of an ideology without supporting the entire ideology itself. Communism/Socialism just simply does not work when applied to the real world. It lacks factoring in the fact that it’s usurping rights from people and human nature itself.
I believe Capitalism does need to be reformed for the 21st Century
The current form of capitalism is based off the Industrial Revolution, which has long since withered away to allow the Information/Digital Revolution to flourish, so it’s without any doubt that capitalism needs to be retrofitted for our 21st Century reality. Factories and other industries are slowly but surely giving way to automation and having capitalism still holding on the ancient remains of the Industrial Revolution does nothing to help people and in fact gives the Communists/Socialists credence in their ideology that capitalism is slowly dying.
I don’t believe in amnesty for illegals
As someone who is the son of a legal immigrant from Latin America, giving amnesty and all these amenities to illegal, law-breaking immigrants is a slap in the face to those who went through the process of citizenship the legal way. If these illegals want citizenship then they need to go about it the way everyone has.
I believe in a secured border
We need to secure our border and even put up an extensive wall along our border in order to secure our nation from illegal immigration and from intrusions from Mexican drug cartels and the Mexican military.
I believe political correctness is wrong
People need to really grow a thick skin and stop being offended by every little thing that comes out. What kind of life is it to find offense at everything around you? You don’t have the right to not be offended. Welcome to reality.
I believe in a non-racist, all inclusive nationalism
I think its important that all legal American citizens regardless of race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, religion and political ideology to express pride in their country. Since pride in country tends to run contrary of the internationalist beliefs of most Left leaning ideologies the opposing idea is of course nationalism. Nationalism isn’t inherently racist in nature and especially with a diverse country such as America nationalism can not be racist.
I support the 10th Amendment
The idea of giving more power to the states and the people and restricting power given to the Federal government is just common sense. As we can clearly see the power lust that Federal government has is a clear and present danger to American citizens. We need to get back rights for the states to choose what is good for their state and not be bullied by the government to accept things the Federal government wants to impose like Common Core.
There’s more things I can bullet point that I support, but it tends to be a long list so this gives you an idea of why I believe in what I believe and why I have a problem simply sticking to any party line. I’m just some person stuck in the center of politics and find the Left-Right rift to be ridiculous.
A resounding question that surrounds how we can give free, unabridged healthcare to illegal immigrants, but yet our veterans who fought for our country and contributed with honor are still suffering without proper treatment? It’s an excellent question that NEEDS to be answered by President Obama and his cohorts. However, since Obama hasn’t answered many questions surrounding the multitude of scandals during tenure as President of the United States of America I won’t hold my breath and simply file it under, “He doesn’t care about Americans.”
I could probably reiterate the plethora of platitudes of those angered by this issue, but what would be the point? It stinks more so than the pile of garbage we call politicians heaped in their seats patting themselves on the backs and giving themselves raises for doing nothing but dividing the Nation against itself. I don’t blame illegal immigrants for coming here. I mean who can blame them for wanting a better life?! No, I blame the Federal Government for not securing the border against illegal crossing into our country. The Federal Government is at the heart of all of this and President Obama to claim ignorance doesn’t work. Liberals didn’t let President Bush claim ignorance on issues, so why should Obama have free reign?
And lets not forget the whole Bergdahl issue which eclipsed the VA scandal within a day. Nice going, lets give back 5 horrible human beings in exchange for a Army deserter who bashed this country verbally. Once again, Obama can not claim ignorance on this issue. Remember, the Buck Stops at the Presidents desk. Imagine the furor caused if Bush said, “Well, I just learned about the August 2001 memo concerning probably terrorist attacks via airplanes through the news!” The Liberals would’ve been howling for blood more so than they were when they found out about the memo.
This Presidency under Obama has been the most embarrassing and most ridiculous Administration I have ever witnessed. Obama, no matter the clanging of the Shield of Hope and Change he had ran on previously he sure hasn’t held up his end of the bargain. Instead, he has invested taxpayers money in solar companies that failed, lavish parties, vacations galore, spying on Americans and gun running into Mexico. This is not what I imagined when I voted for Obama in 2008, but that’s the curse of imagining the world when reality gets in the way, you get let down by people who promise you golden roads and instead give you mud roads.
Now what? That’s the question, how do we fix this Nation that has a society in shambles where adults in positions of power act like spoiled rotten children and celebrities who out pace Nero and Caligula in their hedonism. All the while us, the serfs, the plebs, the proles, have to struggle daily in order to sustain our existence. Remember this the next time you or your children see the Kardashians, the Biebers, and every other swill chugging celebrity has their face plastered on your screen. Ask yourself,”Why?” Why do we care about the lives of celebrities? Why do we allow the Federal Government to stomp on our backs? Why have we allowed our society to go down into the depths of a cesspool? Why don’t we care about honor and our elders anymore? Ask these questions and try to answer them. That’s supposed to be your job as an ordinary American citizen.
