I. The Free Health Insurance for All myth.
I Want to say up front that I don’t consider myself to be highly intelligent or exceptional brilliant. I consider myself to be of average intelligence with above average wisdom. The reason liberals are shallow and blind is because hardship and survival struggle haven’t had a chance to open their eyes and sharpen their survival instinct.
But, like all thing in nature, there will always be exceptions. Hardship and struggle doesn’t enlighten or make every one a saint, in fact it makes a few more harden and bitter than ever, but that is the exception to the rule. There is a world of difference between sheer intelligent and wisdom in the game of survival mainly because of the factors of perspective and determination. Here is an example: Free health insurance for all.
My God! I slam my hat on the floor! Why don’t people wake up! It is beyond insane that so many people is chasing falling stars and expecting pots of gold at the end of rainbows, it’s the same analogy as expecting free health insurance for all, and there are no free rides in this world. Somebody is gotta pay, and somebody is gonna pay dearly.
The true fact is the problem with health care in America doesn’t have anything to do with insurance, we are talking about apples and oranges, and the insurance factor is just a phony facade. The real problem with health care in America is cost, cost, cost, and more cost, period. In thirty years the cost of medical care has hit the ceiling went through the roof and not even the sky is the limit.
Before 1960 there was no health care problem in this country, the best health care in the world worked just fine, all doctors were rich and happy. Then the seed was planted, government started subsidizing businesses that gave their employees free health insurance. Now, government is totally into the medical profession lock, stock, and barrel.
That being the case, I might as well enlighten you, the best health care system to ever exist in the history of man kind can only go one way quality wise, I’ll let you decide. Let me give you another clue, the liberals are never going to give up until they fulfill their dream of socialized medicine in America.From the desk of Freddie L. Sirmans, Sr. August 19, 2007
I. What’s up with the housing foreclosing scare?
Let me, Freddie L. Sirmans, Sr analyze and dissect the inner working of the US economy.After the “New deal” the liberals set in motions this inflationary spiraling economy we have today. Inflationary spiraling is when government gives mass amounts of money to individuals to meet whatever price the merchants demand, thereby allowing the merchants to dictate the cost of living.
That is a no-no; the cost of living should be dictated by the public’s ability to pay in the free market place.That was the beginning of the inflationary spiraling we have today. The first thing is the government doesn’t have any money unless it is taken from somewhere. That is why government should stay out of the market place as much as possible and take only enough funds to run the government and not take on a provider role or any other burdens.
In a natural non inflationary economy the merchants can’t charge more than the poor people can afford and stay in business because of their numbers.There are never enough rich people to support too higher prices. Throughout history when one couldn’t afford to pay he turned first to the extended family, the church, community organizations, and lastly the government. The government should never have gone past funding community wise things, such as kitchens and shelters.
Giving money to individuals on an individual basis is the dumbest thing a government can do in a democracy for long term survival. It sets up the system we are in today where the merchants need to raise prices higher and higher to stay in business, and the government needs to raise taxes higher and higher to support it’s provider role, so the poor can support the merchants higher and higher prices in a never ending upward spiral.
Many hard working people are as much as ten years behind the curve and are falling farther and farther behind by not getting a raise every year. If you think that is bad, look at the destruction it has done to the nuclear family, our bread basket small farmers, our manufacturing base, our bartering capacity, and on and on.
But, here is the real kicker that most American doesn’t think about; this whole system depends on mass money circulation to survive, whereas a natural free market system doesn’t. If money circulation slows to a crawl it could collapse the whole system starve us almost to death?Whether true or not, the old “Sling” expressions of liberals booming the economy with mass social spending and conservatives booming the economy by fighting wars may not work anymore.
The people are just about taxed out and so much of what we buy is made overseas that the only thing that really booms the economy anymore is mass building construction. So, if house building and construction slows to a crawl we will be in for a lot of hurt. After restocking and paying operating cost the profit margin for some retail businesses can be as low as three percent.
The billions of US dollars going overseas to purchase foreign made products and merchandise are not circulating back here in our economy. Sure, they may buy US treasure bonds and some big ticket items, but that’s still not very much circulation to help boost and keep our economy healthy. That is why I rant and rail so hard about our government lessening its burdens through privatizing.
There is no painless way out of the fix our economy is in but at least privatizing is a step toward sanity and long term survival.May God bless and keep this great free nation always.

I. A two headed snake.
In my view solving the illegal immigration dilemma is like trying to charm a two-headed snake. It can end up biting a lot of politicians. Very few actually recognize this issue for what it really is. I don’t think this hot button highly charged emotional issue is going to flame down no matter what consensus is reached.
Myself, I recognize this emotional charged issue as just plain old fashion sibling rivalry. And there is only two ways to heal sibling rivalry, first, through hard but fair discipline, or make sure there is plenty enough love to go around. This country actually has a prevailing dependent mentality just like children in a big family, due to big government dependency.
Many politicians think an influx of new payers paying into the social security system is a good thing, but, especially the elderly think just the opposite. The elderly see the illegals as a threat to bankrupt social security, which to them is an unforgivable sin that they will not forget. You mark my words; these old folks are going to be hell bent on punishing somebody at the polls. I must have said it a thousand times or more, the immigration invasion is just a symptom.
And in my view no amount of sugar coating a symptom is going to heal the problem or bring lasting peace. No one wants to hear it but freedom as we know it is doomed in this country unless we private out of this dooms day welfare state. And politically I don’t think we any longer have the wisdom or the will to do that. I believe within ten years there could be mass civil unrest in this country that could end in permanent martial law.
All great nations fall from within. You can seal the border, build a wall, or a hundred different things, but in my view nothing is going to stop this welfare state from killing this nation unless it is privatized down. God save America.

I. Can a third party save us?
I recently heard the term “National primary” and it tripped a switch in my brain. If they can so easily contemplate a national primary, why not also contemplate a national presidential runoff. We have the Electoral College in place as a safe guard, so why not? Why not have runoffs all the way up from local to presidential when no one receives more than fifty percent of the votes?
No great number of people is ever going to throw away their vote on a third party option, because without a final runoff it doesn't make sense. I think almost every country in the world haves a runoff system; it is the only fair way for everyone. We are locked in on a course toward doom and a change of course is the only thing that is going to save us. Many have serious doubts about any real change of course unless pressured by a new kid on the block.
You may not agree, but Freddie L. Sirmans' books don't just talk about a problem they gives wise solutions. Some people need to be shaken out of denial or we are doomed.From the desk of Freddie L. Sirmans, Sr. May 21, 2007
I. Is the day of reckoning near?
A very wise general once said, “Never give an order you know is not going to be obeyed.” I think the same truth should be applied to the law. When I look back and analyze the decline and destruction of western civilization I believe abandoning the gold standard was the time bomb. Nothing else I can think of could have brought down western civilization. With a gold standard there would be no welfare state today.
There would be no destruction of the nuclear family. There would be no inflationary spiraling. There would be no illegal immigration invasion. There would be no complete moral breakdown. The physical boundary of a physical accountability currency would have purged out anti-survival threats long before they could bring down the whole system.
You know the economy is completely out of control when the essential workingman is almost starving while many nonessential professions are being paid millions upon millions of dollars.The day of reckoning looms on horizon. However, there is never a set prediction for the future; man always has the option through his action to determine his future.
“The horse is out of the barn, the tooth paste is out of the tube, the train has left the station, no need to cry over spilled milk, a day late and a dollar short, you can’t turn back the clock, or some other metaphor is how I see it. There is no painless way out of sleeping in the bed we have made.” Not even the fall of the Roman Empire destroyed western civilization, but I assure you the welfare states can and will.
The only burdens the government should have in a democracy are the responsibility for internal and external protection, and a few other administrative costs. Then if the private economy goes down the government should still have enough treasure to survive and regroup. Otherwise, our government has taken on the burden of supporting the welfare state and when the economy goes down the masses of dependents will be left with nothing.
Even now, the government should be weaning itself from burdens and masses of dependents but is headed in the opposite directions and taking on more burdens. In my view it is insane, shallow, and living in the moment. The only thing that is going to give western civilization a fighting chance is a lean and mean government with proud, independent, and self-sufficient nuclear families, otherwise get prepared to start praying several times a day. And lastly, you can write me off as a kook but history will be the final judge.
