The Oxymoron Libertarian Socialist

The political philosophy known as libertarian socialism has always been a subject of intrigue for me. Libertarian socialism, also known as left-libertarianism, is defined as a group of anti-authoritarian political philosophies inside the socialist movement that rejects socialism as centralized state ownership and control of the economy, as well as the state itself.  I am amused that the socialist movement would attach themselves to any form of libertarianism whatsoever. Libertarianism and socialism are antithetical political philosophies.. Libertarianism promotes freedom, choice, and individualism, while socialism nurtures intrusive government, servitude, and slavery. While these two doctrines are in direct opposition of each other, libertarian socialism is a separate entity.

Advocates of libertarian socialism strongly believe that capitalism cripples freedom. In their minds, power and privilege for the wealthy are offshoots of capitalism. Libertarian socialists endorse the abolition of private property and the state, which directly contrasts with the separate ideologies of libertarianism and socialism. Libertarians support the rights of private property, since it is an extension of self ownership. Socialists, however, thrive on state ownership to enforce what they perceive as equality. The stark disparity between libertarianism and socialism makes it impossible to combine these ideologies in any way.

Libertarianism socialism has frequently been linked to anarchism, although the validity of these claims is debatable. While each of these philosophies oppose big government, anarchism stems from capitalistic roots, not socialistic ones. Anarchism is the absence of all government. Libertarian socialists claim to oppose the government, yet rely on it to halt the production of private property. Libertarian socialism is the ultimate oxymoron. No matter what spin you put on the matter, you cannot be a libertarian and a socialist. The positions are too far apart on the spectrum. In this particular situation, the horseshoe theory does not apply.

Alt-right is NOT Synonymous to Republicans

The alternative right, more commonly known  as the alt right, is a far right ideology that rejects traditional ideas of American conservatism. The self-proclaimed focus of the alt right is the preservation of the white race and “white” countries. The alt right is regularly criticized for derogatory slurs towards Jewish people, minorities, mixed race couples, and others. The philosophy of the Alt-right is connected to fascism and Nazism as a result of their flagrant support for Hitler and astounding denial of the Holocaust.

The Alt-right is pernicious to the Republican Party because they provide ammunition for leftists to brand conservative Americans as racist and bigoted. These labels are quite fitting for the Alt-right, but not for conservative men and women in this great nation. The Republican Party is the party of principles, patriotism, and innovation; the Alt-right morphs principles into exclusion, patriotism into discrimination, and innovation into regression. Followers of the Alt-right have boldly expressed their feelings of disdain for non white Americans. One woman even went as far as to state that she wants “non-whites” to be dead.  This is NOT what conservatism represents. This is NOT what the Republican Party stands for. The dogma of the Alt-right is insidious and evil. President Trump disavowed the Alt-right, stating that they are not a group that he wants to energize.

The most ironic aspect of the Alt-right is their proclaimed loathing for social justice warriors. The Alt-right is the right wing, mirror image of social justice warriors. Like a plethora of other racists and fascists, the Alt-right is the embodiment of their supposed opposition. Social justice warriors and the Alt-right both judge people based on exterior qualities such as race. An interesting theory known as the horseshoe theory is applicable between social justice warriors and the Alt-right. The horseshoe theory states that the far left and far right are actually identical, rather than polar opposites, as most would believe them to be. This notion holds true. Communism and fascism are considered to be on opposing sides of the political spectrum, yet when you study both regimes, you discover the overwhelming amount of parallels between them. Familiarity truly does breed contempt.

America must know that Alt-right values are dissimilar and contrasting to conservative ones. Conservatives do not engage in divisive and race baiting tactics. As a woman of color, I am conservative because the ideology coincides with who I am. I support small government, low taxes, legal immigration, and the value of American grit over welfare. Any American can succeed as long as he or she is willing to work for it. Each American must decide to make something of themselves. The Alt-right believes that success and greatness belongs to one group. Alt-right doctrines are NOT synonymous to Republicans or conservatives, which is why they are the alternativeright.

Why President Trump’s Inaugural Address Gave Me Hope

I have never felt prouder to be an American than I was while watching President Donald John Trump be sworn into office. He is a bold, indomitable leader and he will be an exceptional President. President Trump will do what many past Presidents have failed to do and take on the establishment on both sides of the aisle. He will repeal and replace Obamacare and terminate illegal immigration. His Inaugural address was very promising.

One of the first points of his address was removing power from Washington and restoring power to American citizens. This act is crucial for the success of this great nation. History has repeatedly proven that an all powerful government is catastrophic. The government was never created to hold power over the people. When our Founding Fathers wrote the laws of America, they always intended for the citizens to have the power. We the people elect those in office. We the people elect senators to represent us. We are in charge and for so long the American people have elected leaders who did not share this belief. No more.

President Trump went on to discuss the significance of putting Americans first. He talked about the unity of our nation and providing opportunities for all Americans to succeed. We will support the American military, restore America’s borders, and secure the American infrastructure. President Trump will get people off of welfare and put them back to work. This will add to the economy and taxpayers will no longer be forced to pay for those who do not want to work. All of these practices lead to a great and prosperous nation. Our new President will restore wealth, greatness, strength, and prosperity in America. Our new President understands the importance of upholding the law, buying American products, and hiring American people. A nation that puts itself first is a nation that shines and sets a fine example for others.

I admire President Trump’s love for America. His patriotism and support of Americans is exemplary. United we stand, divided we fall. Throughout President Trump’s Inaugural address, he spoke with high energy, vigilance, and passion. His faith in America is evidenced through his bold and positive convictions. President Trump wants what is best for this country. His speech was genuine and came directly from the heart.

It is the beginning of a new era. The Trump years are among us. From this point forward, America will be a country that rewards success and hard work. We, the American people, finally have a President who values our country enough to put our best interests first. I look forward with great anticipation to the changes that will be made.

Thank you, Mr. President.

Prohibit Junk Food Food Stamp Abuse

On Thursday, December 15, Republican representative, Mary Bentley proposed a bill that would ban junk food purchases under food stamps in Arkansas. The bill would require Arkansas’s Department of Human Services to obtain a waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which provides food stamps. Items like soda, chips, and candy bars would be disallowed.

Although I am not an Arkansas resident, I am in full support of this proposal and believe that it should become a nation wide policy. The money that goes to food stamps comes out of the paychecks of hardworking Americans, like you and I. Why should hard workers who have their own expenses be forced to pay for someone’s else’s unhealthy junk food?

I have witnessed recipients of food stamps abuse the program, first hand.

When I was completing my senior year of high school in early 2016, I worked at a convenience store in Michigan as a sales associate. A vast amount of individuals came in, used food stamps to buy pop, gummy bears, and candy, and then used cash for cigars, lottery tickets, and lighters. These are not people in genuine need of help while they seek employment. These are entitled people who are gleefully abusing the system and piggybacking off the dimensions of working people.

It’s very insulting that a percentage of my income goes to pay for other people’s extras. If you are receiving food stamps from the government, you should be doing everything to find work that will allow you to support yourself instead of relying on other people’s money. Some may argue that food stamps belong to the recipient once the government issues them, but this is erroneous. The money invested in food stamps is not the property of the program’s recipients. They did not work for it, so therefore, it does not belong to them. It belongs to all the hard workers of America. Government assistance could not exist without our economic labor.

The Special Supplemental Nutritional Program (or ‘food stamps’) is highly parasitic in nature. It relies on people who go to work everyday to support ourselves. It takes without giving and breeds an attitude of entitlement from those on the receiving end. What incentive do they have to work if everything is handed to them, free of charge?

This must end. I fully look forward to seeing all junk food purchases banned nationwide under food stamps.

Election Rigging and Blue Dem Double Standards

At this point in American history, Democrats have trademarked hypocrisy and double standards. This has manifested in a plethora of ways from name calling to refusing to accept the results of the election and so on. Leftists have now reached a new low by suggesting that Putin and the Russians rigged the election in President Elect Trump’s favor while vehemently disregarding any claims of election tampering prior to Mr. Trump’s victory.

During the election, Mr. Trump suggested that potential fraud existed in Mrs. Clinton’s favor. When you consider that dead people are registered to vote and election machines are altering votes from Trump/Pence to Clinton/Kaine, the allegation holds precedence. However, Democrats completely dismissed the issue and labeled Mr. Trump as fear mongering and delusional.

While campaigning at a Hillary For America event in Miami Gardens, Florida, President Obama said the following: “When you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people’s mind about the legitimacy of our elections, that undermines our democracy. Then you are doing the work of our adversaries for them.” It is most unfortunate that Mr. Obama does not hold this same view after seeing his party crash and burn on November 8th.

Fast forward a month and a half later and the rhetoric of the Left has utterly contrasted. The same President who lectured about “sowing seeds of doubt about the legitimacy of elections,” also stated that the United States would “retaliate” against Russians for “meddling in the election.” There’s never been a situation more fitting for the phrase “sour grapes.”

In an Oprah interview, Michelle Obama said, “We’re feeling what not having hope feels like.” I, along with my fellow Patriots, beg to differ. We do feel hope. We feel more hope than we’ve felt in eight years. We feel hope that our current President-Elect will reverse the damaging policies that have caused taxes to skyrocket, home ownership rates to plummet, and food stamp recipients to increase. Democrats really believed that they were going to easily win this election. They were beaten big league and now their heads are exploding.

Unsurprisingly, this is not the first time that the Left has used Putin and the Russians as a scapegoat when things were not going in their direction. At the second Presidential debate, Mrs. Clinton implied that Wikileaks were a result of Russian hackers. This has been proven to be false by Craig Murray, a Wikileaks operative, who revealed that appalled Democrats were behind the leaks, not the Russians.

Interestingly enough, when Republicans lose elections, unlike Democrats, we don’t throw tantrums. When Obama won in 2008 and 2012, we didn’t riot, make false claims of hate crimes, or claim that a foreign leader rigged the elections. We accepted the results like mature adults and went to work the next day.

Leftists still fail to grasp that they are responsible for their loss. A Muslim woman was recently arrested for lying about being the victim of a hate crime perpetrated by Trump supporters. Hollywood actress, Lisa Edelstein used Alan Thicke’s death to take a classless shot at the President-Elect. “Seems everyone’s checking out before the Trumpocalypse,” she tweeted. This nonsense is what millions of Americans voted against. As long as the Blue Dems promote racism, division, hatred, and fear mongering, they will always lose.

Two Sides of the Same Coin

Ever since the beginning of politics, there has been a left-right spectrum containing the various political positions. As we know, communism is considered to be extremely far left whereas fascism is considered to be extremely far right. One may look at this and believe communism and fascism to be polar opposites, but in reality, they are merely two sides of the same coin.

Communism and fascism both thrive on enormous government being in absolute power. The two ideologies place a tyrannical leader in place to make all of the important decisions and ordinary civilians are deemed unfit to have the right to govern themselves. Both systems are the antithesis of freedom, individualism, and democracy. Communism and fascism both originated in Europe and gained popularity in the 20th century.

Another parallel between these two systems is they are each socialistic in theory and antagonistic towards capitalism. Essentially, communists and fascists both believe that civilians should be at the mercy of dictators. Both regimes prohibit citizens from gaining property or wealth of their own. There is no “middle class” under communism or fascism.

Ironically, communists and fascists claim to loathe each other, even though they are almost identical. Adolf Hitler, an infamous Nazi and fascist, claimed to abhor communism. Hitler believed communism to be “the scourge of the world” and “a cancer to be cut out of the world,” in his book ‘Mein Kampf.’ These beliefs of communism are paradoxical to fascism in a plethora of ways.

Fascism is a scourge and cancer because it suppresses free speech, invades privacy, promotes racism, sexism, and slavery. Fascism violates every human right imaginable and history has proven that fascism is a nightmare that results in the genocide of millions.

In closing, it is worth noting that in the majority of cases, extremes on either sides of the aisle are dangerous, and this is especially true on the political spectrum. You can only go so far left or so far right before you reach disaster and destruction.

Why the Blue Dems Lost the Election

Why Democrats Lost the Election

By Gabrielle Renee Seunagal

On the early morning of November 9, it was announced that Donald Trump won the Presidential election. Many were shocked, many were overjoyed, and many were incensed.

There has been a disposition of outrage from the Left. “WHAT IS HAPPENING” and “#WTFAmerica” were a few of the top trends on Twitter when Mr. Trump was officially called President-Elect. Now there are violent riots occurring across America and Trump supporters are being assaulted.

I find it mildly amusing that leftists don’t understand that they are completely to blame for losing the election. Elite Democrats chose to nominate the most unlikable and corrupt candidate to ever seek public office. WikiLeaks revealed that the DNC was very disapproving of Bernie Sanders, even though he would have easily beaten Donald Trump. It’s quite ironic. Democrats were their own undoing during this election. They chose to block out the one candidate that would have won the Oval Office because he wasn’t supportive of Wall Street donors or big corporations.

Furthermore, the Left truly shot themselves in the foot by nominating Hillary Clinton. She was under FBI investigation during most of her campaign. She was on record stating that she has a private position and a public position on the issues. She labeled Trump supporters as “a basket of deplorables,” called African Americans “superpredators,” and she epitomized big government and the same old status quo. Who in their right mind would vote for that?

The Left is infamous for attacking conservatives and anyone who does not share their views. According to the Left, if you’re a white person who supports Trump, you’re “racist”, you’re “sexist,” you’re a “bigot.” If you’re a person of color who supports Trump, you’re a “coon,” a “self hater,” or a “racist.” Not everyone who endorses Trump is a racist or a sexist. There are a plethora of people from different social classes and races who supported him because of his policies and success in the business world and real estate.

Leftists must learn that name calling those who disagree with them will not help their cause or win them any elections.
