“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Socialists Plan to Rage Against Freedom on Constitution Day

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse than the spectacle of idiocy, self-centeredness, greed and anti-Americanism seen in Madison, Wisconsin last winter, now comes a “Day of Rage” planned for our nation’s Constitution Day on September 17.  Watch the video below for a better look at what they have planned.

Yes, on the day most Americans (the patriotic ones) celebrate the document which founded the most free and effective government in history, that guarantees the liberties of the most free people in history, some spoiled children among us will rage against all that freedom and prosperity.

What it comes down to for these Marxists is this: if they don’t have everything that the wealthiest among us has, and handed to them on a platter without having to work for it, they will rage against the freedom of their fellow Americans to have more property than them.  These spoiled children are the epitome of self-centeredness and greed, being too lazy to go out and create their own fortune, but too narcissistic to tolerate the fact that another person has more or has earned more.

We saw this ugly battle for free spoils rage in the capital of Wisconsin over the winter as Governor Walker and the legislature worked to bring an end to the gravy train government unions had enjoyed for decades in that state.  Though Wisconsin–like most states and our federal government–was facing a fiscal crisis, entitlement-minded Marxists were unwilling to sacrifice anything from their free ride.  They made it vociferously clear that they expected the taxpayers to continue forking over cash to pay for their goodies, whether those goodies met fair market value or not.

A great victory for fiscal responsibility was eventually won in Wisconsin, but obviously the battle is not over.

Even before the dust had settled in Wisconsin, we were seeing that self-centered Marxists across America were throwing tantrums by protesting in front of the homes of the leaders of large free market businesses, and going into those businesses to disrupt commerce.

Now, with this “Day of Rage” move to “occupy Wall Street” on Constitution Day, the takers have targeted the symbol of American prosperity with their greed.  As is often the case with liberals, one has to wonder whether they were smart enough to realize the day they picked was Constitution Day…or whether they deliberately chose that day to further thumb their nose at the American way of life.

Yesterday, Fox News announced the results of a poll which found that 51% of Americans expect major political uprisings in the next 10 years.

Most American voters think the U.S. political system is broken, and more than half think major political uprisings like those recently seen elsewhere around the world are likely to happen in the United States in the next decade.

These are some of the findings from a Fox News poll released Thursday.

Less than a quarter of voters (22 percent) think the U.S. political system is working the way it is supposed to work with different sides fighting hard for what they believe. Most — 74 percent — say the system is broken and gridlocked.

If only 51% believe this, the other 49% must be out to lunch, because we’ve already seen both positive and negative displays of major political uprising in the past two years.

On the positive side, the Tea Party movement sprang up from nothing a little more than two years ago in the face of a Marxist president and Marxist congress that made it immediately clear that they planned to “transform America,” and that they planned to transform it in a way that had nothing to do with following the U.S. Constitution.  Thousands if not millions of Americans rose up peacefully on Tax Day in April of 2009 and made it clear that they would not stand for the socialization of the United States.  This movement brought about a historic shift in power in Washington in the 2010 elections.

On the negative side…well, we’ve already briefly discussed the infantile display in Madison, Wisconsin, and isolated displays here and there across America.  And now there is this “Day of Rage” (which should be called the “Day of Narcissism” or the “Day of Greed”) planned on a national level.

Major political uprising is already here, folks, and it marks a flashpoint in what has been a cold war between two basic ways of life: the American way of life involving freedom and opportunity, and the Marxist way of life involving government domination of every aspect of our lives.  If the American people expect to keep hold of their freedom and heritage, we will see more of this conflict, because the takers have made it clear they will not go quietly into the night. No, they have most assuredly not given up on their glorious socialist revolution–either through peaceful or violent means

But many of the people who answered that poll are fundamentally mistaken about something: the American political system is not broken. No, it remains the best political system ever devised by human beings (with a little help from Divine Providence, as Benjamin Rush might have agreed).

Rather, it is we human beings who are broken. When our political system was crafted, we were a moral and religious people. Despite modern propaganda to the contrary, almost all of the founders were Bible-believing Christians, and the American people in general were predominately committed Christians.

Our political system was founded for a people who adhered to a moral code that led them to discipline and restrain themselves for the most part.  Benjamin Franklin once made a statement which, probably better than anything, sums up precisely why the American system was possible to begin with, and why it worked so well for most of our history: “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”  Because we would restrain ourselves from moral transgression, we had less need of government to force us to behave.

Now that we have made the decision as a nation some 60 years ago to reject our Christian heritage and way of life,  we are seeing a deterioration of morality and self-restraint in our nation.  We are paying the price not only with more arrests, more jails and more taxpayer expenditure, but also in more government…and a corresponding loss of freedom.

No, our political system is not broken.  More than 200 years ago, John Adams explained the problem we face:

We have no government, armed with power, capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

We usually think of “morality” in terms of the immoral manifestations that have taken hold of our culture in recent decades, such as homosexuality and general displays of sexual debauchery.  But there is another type of morality which I think Adams had in mind, at least in the back of his head, when he said this.

You see, a nation cannot survive if the people are possessed of greed for things they have not earned, if they are covetous of the property of their fellow citizens. If citizens are willing to surrender their freedom and vote for corrupt politicians on the basis of their belief that the corrupt politician will extend to them some small share in the loot of the taxpayers, then we are lost.

It remains to be seen whether the renewal of public expression of the American spirit begun in the Tea Party movement has the energy and tenacity to continue.  In fact, if there aren’t more than those who have already stepped forward for freedom, we have to ask ourselves if enough true Americans really remain to make it possible to save our country.

  1. More monkeyshines from Bill Ayers and pals.  This is the same type of art I’ve seen in pictures from the
    former Soviet Union, especially after World War 2 (called “The Great
    Patriotic War” in former USSR).

                                                Reminds me of the Obama “HOPE” poster. 

  2. The author is right. Why don’t “we the people” shut up and and just work silently for the true patriots, the rich and powerful?

  3. I don’t believe the author said that.

    What the author said was to stick a sock in the whining about what other people have that you don’t, and work silently for your own fortune.

    Surely that isn’t too much to ask. The greatest nation on earth was built on such a work ethic.

  4. Perhaps I’m mistaken, but the US Day of Rage isn’t about whining for more welfare (at least the people organizing it didn’t say that), but whining that our democracy is being taken away from us by corporate influence.

    Alexa O’Brien, whose telephone number you can find on usdayofrage.org, wrote this concerning her reason for organizing the US Day of Rage, ‘The corruption of election processes, especially campaign finance
    regulation, has usurped the primacy of the democratic process.’That doesn’t sound like a looter begging for a handout to me. She’s saying that it’s not easy for people’s voices to be heard in Washington if their voices are not aligned with corporate interests. She wants her vote to go to someone who will represent their constituents, not their biggest doner.There’s no way in Hell that we’re going to agree, so I’m going to let you have the last word on this one, if you wish.

  5. Nope, we’re never going to agree. The American way of life has nothing in common with the greed and self-centeredness of Marxism. This Day of Whining and Carrying On is nothing but a childish but vicious attack on freedom and the American way.

    It’s a simple fact of life that those who have more are able to do more with what they have. Unless you’re willing to wad up the U.S. Constitution and throw it away, people will continue to have the freedom to spend their money as they see fit.

    Rather than crying and coveting other people’s property, you should get busy and make more of it yourself.

    You don’t even need a lot of money to influence the political process. The Tea Party movement is mostly made up of average, everyday Americans. But they got busy writing letters, making phone calls, donating small amounts of money to freedom-minded candidates, volunteering their time…and they made a profound change in the 2010 election, and strongly affected the recent budget/deficit talks.

    Wailing that others have more money than you is just a pathetic excuse. Get busy, or shut up and get out of the way.

  6. We need to hold power accountable at all time, As an Anarchist I believe that all Authority is unjustified by natural assumption, and that it is the responsibility of institutions whom wield power to justify themselves, and if the cant then they should be dismantled. Wall street is another example of unjustified authority and I think it is obvious that the capitalist system which Wall Street represents has failed to justify its authority therefore it must be dismantled. Power in essence in achieved by denying one person’s rights in favour of increasing another person’s rights. Take the Strauss Kahn or Pal Ceglia case. In the Strauss Kahn case as soon as there was a flaw in the evidence presented by the non-powerful victim , the judge through the case out in favour of a man of power, Take a look at the Paul Ceglia case ! A man with legitimate claims backed up by solid evidence, But because he is taking on a power machine like Facebook he has being personally discredited by the media and power which has resulted in his evidence being discredited in the public eye, even thou he has more evidence to back his claims than Facebook does. It is time to dismantle the institutions of injustice and put the power into the hands of the working people !

  7. You sound as deluded as most anarchists and Leftists I’ve encountered.

    Wall Street has no authority. Our government has the authority, and our government gets its authority from the people. That’s how a constitutional republic works. If power isn’t in the hands of the people, it’s because we have forfeited it and given it away. The Tea Party is about changing that. Perhaps you should abandon your anarchist ways and join the Tea Party movement.

    You should also note the source of prosperity and domestic tranquility which I pointed out: the Christian worldvlew. Justice and fairness will not be found in anarchy or in Marxism, but in the same objective truths upon which our nation was founded.

  8. Oh come on to claim Wall  street has no authority is just nonsense. Anyone educated in politics knows Wall street is the most powerful institution in Amerd possibly the world. Of course they hold authority just look at economic policies! all favour Wall Street over the working people. Since you seem to know what Anarchism and socialism would you like to elaborate f people who dont ? do you know that true  Anarchist are opposed to socialism on the basis it is an authoritarian system with a centralised government like Quasi-Capitalism. And if you think Americas constitution is actually believed by washington then you the delude 1 ! Ron Paul is is but a handfull constitutionalist politicians in americ and he calls himself a Libertarian which is Anarcho-Capitalm. The tea part movement has excellent ideas and anarchist values its just a pity it was taken over by dumb uneducated bigots, not all but most.

  9. Since you insist in defiance of all facts and reason, go ahead then and tell me what laws Wall Street has passed? What legislative authority do they have? What executive authority do they have? What judicial authority do they have? What army do they possess? What police force do they control?

    Right. None. Wall Street. Has. No. Authority.

    Moronic “anarchists” like yourself are working quite well with socialists to destroy the economic engine that has made this nation and its people the most prosperous in human history.

    Tea Party patriots seek to preserve the American way of life, and we are determined to do so despite the lunacy of socialists and anarchists. If you ever wake up, you’ll thank us.

  10. You just don’t understand the relationship between wall street and politicians so let me educate you ok , politicians run for office with campaigning donations from big business in return for favourable policies, look at the bush administration’s treasury ! it was jokingly called Goldman Sachs treasury since 80% of them were former Goldman board members like Hank Paulson and Robert Rubin, and now Goldman is the biggest profiteer of he bailout,, there is more politicians who were once board members of the biggest banks if you want me to name them. see bankers give the money and politicians give them favourable policies
    They possess the american army and its proved by Americas war for oil interests .

    Im not moronic iv actually an IQ of 141 and I’m only 18 , what’s your IQ . Are you trying to say people like Noam Chomsky.Aristotle,Emma Goldman, Murray Boockhin , Bakunin etc. are moronic? their considered some of the greatest minds and their all anarchist, Noam Chomsky considered the most important scholar of the last century. See i have all these great minds on my side while you have michelle Bachmann . Ithink i know were im sticking ! And what is american way of life ? white Christian ? tea party members are a lot more anarchist and socialist than they think trust me 

  11. I’m still waiting to hear what laws Wall Street has passed, what laws they enforce, and what laws they adjudicate. I’m still waiting also to hear about their military and police force.

    Again: Wall Street. Has. No. Authority.

    You have once again proven that human beings possess the capability to have a high IQ and still be a moron. Liberalism and Marxist philosophy has that tendency to dull the practical intelligence.

  12. I’ll be blunt. I’m about fed up trying to explain some pretty basic facts to a moron who allegedly has a 141 IQ.

    WALL STREET. DOES. NOT. HAVE. AUTHORITY.

    Since you are apparently still too obtuse to even stumble into the right answer after all these exchanges (you came close to stumbling into it in your last comment, but still missed it), I’ll tell you what you meant to say (assuming there is even a glimmer of active intelligence inside your skull). “Wall Street has influence. You have your panties in a wad because Wall Street has more influence than you think they should have. They have zero authority.

    As for that influence you loathe so much, I’ve already illustrated that while money is powerful, it isn’t the be-all and end-all of politics. The Tea Party movement–made up mostly of working class dogs, senior citizens, housewives and the like–have turned the political establishment on its ear in just two years, and have completely changed the terms of the political debate in this country.

    And you’re whining about Wall Street? What a wuss! What a crybaby! Of course, that’s par for the course for you Marxists and anarchists. You lack the courage and fortitude to create any influence, so you whine about that wielded by others–rather like the socialists and other takers who don’t have what it takes to create their own fortune, so they whine about what everyone else has.

    Take it on down the road, maybe to the nearest Democrat Party headquarters. I’ve wasted enough time trying to educate a liberal who’s too smart to learn anything.

  13. Influence can be just as powerful as having authority when you have the money to throw at it. The PROTECT IP Act for example is very restrictive bill, possibly causing many websites to be blocked just because there is infringing content displayed and available for download such as movies, music, books, etc. This doesn’t mean that all of the above can’t be published on there legally, such as content that was created under Creative Commons or Public Domain. Yet, it seems that many corporations are backing this bill and most likely throwing money at the senators to give their support. Yes, I have no facts that these corporations are actually paying off senators to give support for this bill, but I don’t see why anyone would give their support for it other then that.

  15. Influence is just that: influence.

    Authority is just that: authority.

    As I very clearly pointed out more than once, they are very different.

    We have freedom in this country; that allows for influence. The only way to eliminate the influence you socialists so loathe is to leverage the authority of government to eliminate the influence of your enemies.

    That is not an environment of freedom, but one of oppression.

    That is what Marxism is about: oppression. The United States is about freedom. Choose this day which type of place in which you’d like to live…and leave if you can’t abide by the American way of freedom.

  17. Then what you’re saying is that the more influence you have, the more power you have to change things? Thus being more financially endowed enables you the power to persuade others opinions toward your own, I think that is oppression of the less endowed.

    As for the Tea Party, yes they support the same view as us and are mostly comprised of the same people, but I don’t condone the racist behavior that they are known for.

  19. Yeah, a Marxist would think that, because most Marxists are too lazy to go out and create financial resources for themselves. They seek–through revolution or whatever means is available–to leverage the power of government to either limit someone elses freedom to use their own property as they see fit, or to leverage the power of government to take property by force from those with whom they disagree.

    That is oppression, and it is beyond pathetic that you are so deluded that you cannot or will not see it.

    The “racist behavior” that you claim the Tea Party is “known for” is propaganda manufactured by Marxists like yourself. You lack the guts and the intellectual prowess to come right out and defend your anti-American, anti-freedom goals, so you seek to neutralize your opponents with faux claims of racism.

    What a bunch of miserable cowards you are.

  20. *Excerpt from “The Naked Capitalist” by W. Cleon Skousen, (a commentary on a 1300 page book written by Dr Carroll Quigley in 1966 titled “Tragedy and Hope, A History of The World in Our Time.” 

    Quigley, himself a part of the secret society, felt it was time to expose this secret society that is taking over world finance.  In 1966 when he wrote the book, he felt the plan was far enough along that it was irreversible and he wanted everyone to know who was running the world.  This is out of context, but gives a tiny clue to what has happened over the last hundred years or more. Think Federal Reserve, Bank of England, Central banks, etc., all run by the wealthiest people in the world. If your interest is being piqued by this post, look up, “The Creature From Jekyll Island.”

    *Following is the excerpt …” Dr. Quigley has undertaken to expose what every insider like himself has known all along-that the world hierarchy of the dynastic super-rich is out to take over the entire planet, doing it with Socialistic legislation where possible, but having no reluctance to use Communist revolution where necessary.”

    Take careful note of the last part of the sentence, by Socialistic legislation OR Communist REVOLUTION where necessary. 

    That is where we are now.  The planned Day of Rage on Wall Street is all part of the plan.  It worked in Greece, Egypt, Ireland, Spain, all the countries that we have watched being utterly destroyed by the thugs from unions and radical ideologues.  The radical left does NOT want to stop them, they want the chaos.  It leaves the opening for martial law, confiscation of arms from the citizenry, and last but least, an imperial dictatorship by decree.  And that, my friends will be the end to our Republic.  Freedom will be totally lost.
    We will live like the Germans in WW11 and the Russians after that.  Think Venezuela, Cuba, Communist China, need I say more?

    I will leave you with one more quote.

    (Communist
    indoctrination)  – my categorization

    “We must create out of the younger
    generation a generation of Communists. We

    must turn children, who can be shaped like wax, into real, good Communists. …

    We must remove the children from the crude influence of their families. We must

    take them over and, to speak frankly, nationalize them. From the first days of

    their lives they will be under the healthy influence of Communist children’s

    nurseries and schools. There they will grow up to be real Communists.”

  21. Our government is SUPPOSED to get it’s authority from the People.  It has been usurped by a president who has a completely different view of what America should be. I don’t know if my post detailing the secret society that has been running not only America, but the entire world finance since the early 1900s, but a good place to start finding out about this is to read W. Cleon Skousen’s book, “The Naked Capitalist,” a 130 page commentary on Dr. Carroll Quigley’s 1300 page book titled, “Tragedy and Hope, A History of the World in Our Time.” 

  22. I am not lazy to create the resources, its not fucking worth it, because i’d have to be a multi-billion dollar powerhouse to get anywhere… That’s how corrupt this place really is, its all about the money nothing about the people.

    When trying to defend your view of the Tea Party, try using facts, and not conspiracy, Try showing sources instead of saying “ITS ALL FABRICATED BY THEM”. You look stupid trying to defend your obviously racist party.

    And to get things straight, I do not condone everything Anonymous is doing. There are things that I find to be completely useless or harm our message to people. The “US Day of Rage” is one of those events that is completely useless, as it does nothing for our message, its a waste of resources.

  23. Yes, you’re lazy. Pathetic and lazy. Why don’t you at least act just a little bit like a grownup and admit it. You lack the courage and the motivation to get off your lazy rear end and do something to promote your own beliefs. You’d rather take away the freedom of other Americans to express themselves and promote their own goals, than to get of your dead rear end and do something about your own.

    Pathetic.

    And I’m quite familiar with the lies and propaganda that have been promoted about the Tea Party for the last two years (haven’t I said this already, or are you too lazy to read?). Repeating it, especially from Leftist “news” organizations and liberal websites doesn’t make it any more true than when the lie first began. It’s just another lazy attempt to silence one’s critics because one is too lazy to either (a) formulate a defense for the anti-American policies of the Left, or (b) get on the American team and start acting like an American.

    I’m glad you don’t condone this Day of Temper Tantrums and Whining, but it sounds like you’d fit right in there.

  24. Wall Street belongs to them, for sure, or we could say Obama belongs to Wall Street. They certainly give him enough the bulk of the money. What tools… they are protesting the very people who fund their sorry little communist butts.
