Almost all the traditions and institutions which have molded the national character and the whole moral climate of England and America are those which the progress of Collectivism and its centralistic tendencies are progressively destroying. – Friedrich A Hayek, The Road to Serfdom
Why does austerity seem so much easier to pronounce than socialism? Austerity and politician are two words that slide off the lips much easier for the squawkers and their legions of financial/economic wizard interviews at CNBC, and yet so seldom is heard THE most discouraging word of all…Socialism! In fact, I don’t know that I’ve ever heard the word uttered once within their Clouseauish assessment of the Euro Crime Scene! That would be like Clark, Darden and all of their witnesses, detectives and forensic experts talking about broncos, blood and football…never mentioning the word knife in OJ Simpson’s murder trial! How is this possible?
If the world were one big casino…which is exactly what it seems to have become, Centralized Money is running the house! Now think about this for one moment, but let it really sink in. If the world were as the founding fathers envisioned with real individual freedom and equality, all governments truly of the people, by the people and for the people…the following characters would be out of work tomorrow: Obama, Al Sharpton, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Jesse Jackson, Rush Limbaugh and so on. Now think about how big the pot of Centralized Money is! For the very same reason you will never hear Becky Quick utter the S word, you will never hear Limbaugh utter Arizona Sheriff Arpaio’s name!
So we are stuck in European Ground Hog Day until the day we’re not…and that will be the ugliest day you will have ever lived! Until then, expect more of the same scratch-the-head-and-other-body-part-bewilderment from these geniuses over the disappearance of GROWTH!
One last thing to consider; we have been to this dance before, and it goes like this…Liberalism>Social-Marx-Fasc-ism.
It always begins with the institutionalization of the manufactured victim and ends in the horrific wholesale murder of millions upon millions of real victims! Of course, we could decide to sit this one out…but will we?

Two closing observations…When we stand up and cheer acts of courage such as those recently exhibited by Congressman West in calling out his Marxist peers…we suffocate them. And conversely, when we sit as a silent witness to Holder’s dereliction and PERJURY in response to the New Black Panthers, MF Global and Fast & Furious…we give them the very air they need to suffocate us! Think of your children. Which course would love take?
