About This Blog

Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) was the greatest economist of my time. His greatest works can be accessed here at no charge.

Mises believed that property, freedom and peace are and should be the hallmarks of a satisfying and prosperous society. I agree. Mises proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the prospect for general and individual prosperity is maximized, indeed, is only possible, if the principle of private property reigns supreme. What's yours is yours. What's mine is mine. When the line between yours and mine is smudged, the door to conflict opens. Without freedom (individual liberty of action) the principle of private property is neutered and the free market, which is the child of property and freedom and the mother of prosperity and satisfaction, cannot exist. Peace is the goal of a prosperous and satisfying society of free individuals, not peace which is purchased by submission to the enemies of property and freedom, but peace which results from the unyielding defense of these principles against all who challenge them.

In this blog I measure American society against the metrics of property, freedom and peace.

Progressives Are Right About One Thing

They understand their political opponents are enemies who must be "crushed:" MSNBC's O'Donnell: 'I Want to See Hard Core Republican Conservatism Crushed.'
(via Weasel Zippers)

Far, far too many conservative Republicans believe the goal of politics is to compromise with your political opponents on the other side of the philosophical spectrum. These Republicans need to wake up. The game has become serious and has progressed well beyond such rank naivete.

If you disagree, please tell me how we go about compromising with the likes of Lawrence O'Donnell without giving away the store?

Make no mistake about it. Hard Core Progressives want you silenced and, since they believe that the end justifies the means, they will stop at nothing to see that you are silenced. Don't tell me there is no difference between O'Donnell, Obama and, say, the most maligned of Republican candidates, Mitt Romney!
O'Donnell calls for a return to the good old days of Bill Clinton:
And it might start to look more like what it looked like in the early 1990s when you had very strong conservatives like Newt Gingrich and others, but you had people from states like Missouri, states like Rhode Island who were Republicans who were willing to find a spot to compromise so that you could govern, and you never, ever had standoffs over things like: Should we raise the debt ceiling? Ever. Because there was a sense of responsible governance.
Do you understand what O'Donnell means when he says he wants to "govern" you? He calls for "responsible governance" which in his warped understanding of the term means that RINO Republicans would never "Ever" oppose Progressive attempts to raise the debt ceiling! In short, he longs for the day when conservativism is devoid of meaning, and Republicans are devoid of conscience. He longs for the day when Republicans, conservatives and all his political opponents voluntarily, nay willingly, place their necks in the Progressive guillotine.

How does the mindless, talking ass, Chris Matthews, interpret "responsible governance?"  
It'll be an immediate impact when they [the Republicans] lose control of the government. And that could be good for the country, very good. Because you would then have a ruling moderate to liberal Democratic party running the country for a couple of years and seeing if they can get the job done. That would be good for the country.
In short, Matthews sees "responsible governance" as absolute rule by "liberal" Democrats!
Wake up, conservatives! Unless you want human sewage like O'Donnell and Matthews to conduct a running experiment on the country for the foreseeable future with you playing the part of the lab rat, wake up! These morons must be crushed themselves like the rat-master wannabees they are!
Liberty never is so dear as when you lose it!
