I recall a story from the 1972 presidential election – which Richard Nixon won by a landslide with 520 electoral votes. Upon hearing this, reportedly a matron of the anointed class in New York said, “I don’t understand it, I don’t know anyone who voted for Nixon.” This person obviously had a very narrow perspective of the world, at least on this subject.

    I have no problems with airplanes at 44,000 feet. I can look out the windows with ease. But climbing a few hundred feet off terra firma, I can’t do it no matter how hard I try. You may have similar distances you can’t travel. There is another distance you may have trouble traveling, but that I would urge you to try. It is the distance to that family member or former friend with whom you have had a falling out.

    It is the crime of the century, the dumbing down and demotivation of America. Let’s see if we can do something about it here. Adults, let’s resolve to all become Mr. Wisecups and encourage young people to be all that they can and should be.

    You absolutely can’t voluntarily give to others without love. It is impossible. Do you give Christmas or birthday presents to people you don’t love? Of course not. Therefore, the isms have to use the threat of incarceration or worse.

    Well, we finally get to the purpose. What is the purpose of socialism? This breaks into two pieces.

    For all its flaws, the United States is still the most successful country in the history of the world. The Constitution and capitalism have lifted more people out of poverty than any other government at any other time in any other place in the history of the world.

    When a government gives you money or goods or services, their side has the same implicit expectation. The government expects you to perform in a certain way in exchange for the money they gave you.

    The key human emotions in our narrative are, in no particular order: greed, ambition, fear, compassion, lust, charity, love, hate, concern and jealousy.

    Our final group of major players I will call chameleons. Chameleons move from the anointed to the useful idiots, subcategory, victims, as circumstances develop and according to what they perceive as the most advantageous posture for themselves. Their motivation is almost purely driven by money.

    Unlike the anointed, those who think they have answers to all issues, we in the flyover country can be genuine experts on one topic and completely ignorant on another – but know the difference within ourselves.
