Coveting Hell

I think Obama is confusing his buddy Rev Jeremiah Wright with MLK. Rev Wright could be a keynote speaker for this crowd, and probably will be if there is a OWS in October 2012 as part of Obama’s reelection bid.

Obama’s comments also show how little he understands and believes in Christian philosophy and religious beliefs.

One of the ten commandments is all about not coveting your neighbor’s wealth — Yet promoting the taking of your neighbors wealth is what the OWS crowd and the Obamacrat’s Class Warfare is all about. We’ve already got a very progressive tax code that is all about taking from your neighbor to pay for health care, house, food and more. Just how is that working for everyone? Could it be if you follow the devil, you're likely to live in hell?

Cain has it right — He was taught not to covet his neighbor’s Cadillac, he was taught to work hard to buy his own…

If only the average religious social conservative were only as vehement about protecting this commandment against Class Warfare and jealousy as they are about protecting the unborn. Is there an eleventh commandment about how it's acceptable to choose and pick what commandments you wish to follow?

Big versus Small Government ignorance

Conservatives continue to be misguided in promoting the goal that small government is the solution to the nation’s woes.

Small government is the result of promoting dynamic individually driven social marketplaces. Just having a small government doesn’t mean one necessarily has dynamic individually driven social marketplaces. However, any society with dynamic individually driven social marketplaces will have a small government footprint.

Conversely, big government is the result of promoting collectivist politically driven social marketplaces. In this regard Pelosi is correct : Small government, without vibrant individually driven social marketplaces that provides access to care for those of limited means, may allow women to die on the floor.

Conservatives should expect this sort of nonsense to continue to gush out of liberals mouths so long as conservative leaders continue to promote small government as their primary goal, rather than first promoting vibrant individually driven social marketplaces.

Translation — Conservatives will continue to look stupid to many of the electorate as conservatives just don’t get the importance of properly designed and operated big or little social marketplaces.

Fine print — RINOs and most of the GOP LOSERship don’t get the individually driven social marketplace concept any more than liberals -- they haven't figured out how to leverage individually driven social marketplaces to promote their power.

VAT Solioquy

To VAT or not to VAT,
that is the question,
Whether tis nobler
to suffer the confusion and political panderings
of a bloated incomprehensible tax code,
or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them.
To put them into permanent sleep,
Perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub,
For in that sleep what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off these mortal flaws,
Must give us pause of prosperity possible,
thru a simpler, fairer burden that all shall carry...

But alas, not to be,

The undiscovered country, from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,...

A VAT based world might work just fine, if it could totally replace the income tax, in it's various forms. However, there are too many unwilling to make the leap from our current system, no matter how corrupt and flawed, to another world. Just be glad these aren't the same self limiting folks that were around during the time of the Revolution.
