What Happens When The Government Takes Over Industry

So many times during the Presidential election President Obama bragged that he saved the car industry. Naturally he doesn’t talk about over 100,000 jobs that were lost due to closing down many car dealerships, then we found out that management people lost their pensions, but union people kept theirs.

Our country today is on the verge of being destroyed. How is this happening? To put the pieces together I have taken some passages from Mark Levin’s book “Liberty and Tyranny”. These are real facts that I will use to piece together the conclusion.

To put it succinctly: Conservatism is a way of understanding life, society, and governance. The Founders believed, and the Conservative agrees, in the dignity of the individual; that we, as human beings, have a right to live, live freely, and pursue that which motivates us not because man or some government says so, but because these are God-given natural rights. pg 3.

The Modern Liberal believes in the supremacy of the state, thereby rejecting the principles of the Declaration and the order of the civil society, in whole or part. As the word “liberal”is, in its classical meaning, the opposite of authoritarian, it is more accurate, therefore, to characterize the Modern Liberal as a Statist. pg. 4.

But in the 1930s, during the Great Depression, the Statists successfully launched a counterrevolution that radically and fundamentally altered the nature of American society.pg6. It was not long before the Court became little more than a rubber stamp for Roosevelt’s policies. The Democratic Party and the federal government would become inextricably intertwined, and the Democratic Party would become as dependent on federal power for its sustenance as the governmental dependents it would create.pg7.

Conservatism is the antidote to tyranny precisely because its principles are the founding principles.pg11.

The Statist rejects the Founders’ idea of the dignity of the individual.pg15.

This is the hope the Statist offers, if only the individual surrenders himself to the all-powerful state.pg17.

The classroom is turned into a propaganda mill, rather than a place of education.pg19.

There are now rumblings about regulating the Internet, which occurs in places like China.pg21.

No matter how robust the economy, they claim the imminent threat of a recession or depression.pg22.

Liberty and religious liberty are inseparable, the same national consensus that motivated the Declaration’s signers.pg29.

Rights do not belong to all individuals. They are to be rationed by the state-conferred on those whom the Statist believes deserving of them, and denied to those whom the Statist believes under serving of them.pg29

For the Statist, revolution is an ongoing enterprise, for it regularly cleanses society of religious dogma, antiquated traditions, backward customs, and ambitious individuals who differ with or obstruct the Statist’s plans.pg30.

For the Conservative, and the Founders, faith is not a threat to civil society but rather vital to its survival.

Consequently, for the Statist, federalism, like free markets and private property, remained a major obstacle to amassing power. Therefore, he would have to subvert the Constitution to achieve his ends- which he did.pg53.

The key to understanding the free market is private property. The Conservative believes that the federal government should raise revenue only to fund those activities that the Constitution authorizes and no others. Otherwise, what are the limits on the Statist’s power to tax and regulate the individuals labor and, ultimately, enslave him?pg62.

The Marxist class-struggle formulation, which pits the proletariat{“working class”} against the bourgeoisie {“wealthy merchant class”}, still serves as the principle theoretical and rhetorical justification for the Statist’s assault on the free market.pg63.

Lets proceed to today’s situation with GM and Chrysler that was bailed out by the government. GM and Chrysler should have been allowed to go bankrupt. President Obama declared that the car industry will not be allowed to go bankrupt. So what does the government do, they pump them with billion’s of dollars. Eventually they had to go through what is called a managed bankruptcy in which the American taxpayer is now out $45 billion dollars for not allowing this to happen in the first place. What this is all about is the government being in control of another industry. It was said many years ago that socialism would not happen over night, but someday some generation would wake up with a socialistic United States of America.

Don’t you see what is happening here? GM and Chrysler, even if they paid off their debt, which the tax payer will never get all of its money back, will always answer to the government, unless we stop voting in these socialists. Obama and company will dictate what kind of car’s to produce, and set the emissions standards. This global warming is over done, and the socialist’s from Gore on down, are using it for control, but this will be another subject.

I am certain of one main fact. We have our Bill of Rights and our Constitution. Any President who willingly attempts to divert America from its Constitution should be Impeached.
