America’s election night debacle makes it quite simple. We live in two Americas. As French economist Frederic Bastiat told us, “Government is the great fiction, through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else.” You are now looking at just such a condition. Over the last couple of years, Debbie and I have been spending a considerable amount of time in France. We in fact were in France for the recent French debacle of a presidential election. Like America, the French voted in a socialist. Unlike in America, the candidate actually admitted to being a socialist. The French already realize they have been had and are reacting accordingly.
As you know, I felt the American socialist would lose the election, and I have been proven wrong. It turns out that the America I grew up in is gone and most likely gone for good. A two-party system is no longer the proper form of politics for America’s achievers. In America, the takers now outnumber the givers. The labels liberal and conservative are blurred and meaningless. Debbie and I are benefactors of the Cato Institute, where the word conservative is not used. That’s because conservative to most Americans means a combination of two groups: evangelical Christians and the military/industrial (see neocon) complex. Cato is not a supporter of a foreign policy that butts into another country’s business, like our misguided efforts in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.
I have written thousands of words in opposition to Barack Obama, yet have written virtually nothing regarding Mitt Romney. Why? Because Mr. Romney, while a man I like and admire, is also a front man for “The Complex.” All you need do is examine Mr. Romney’s roster of foreign policy advisors. I voted for Mr. Romney with gritted teeth, choosing a military industrial complex guy over a socialist. I am an independent today largely because of the direction George Bush took the Republican Party. Bush was a big spending front man for “The Complex” and sent the country down a rat hole. Barack Obama is a good measure worse, with all the negative Bush attributes swathed in a Marxist blanket. If you have read Karl Marx, you will recognize the association between these two dangerously misguided fellows.
So now we are in quite a jam. My clients, America’s small business owners, will not buy into an Obama scenario. I have regularly advised my clients to move to states that have both a right to work law and the Castle Doctrine for personal protection. As you know, Debbie and I are Florida residents. Your priority move is to join me in an approved state. In Florida we have a great governor in Rick Scott. Governor Scott will not allow Florida to go down the Obama/Marx rat hole. Debbie and I have twice spent a little time with Governor Scott at Cato conclaves. Rick Scott is the type of positive entrepreneur who understands the concept of two Americas.
Along with moving your business to an approved state and becoming a Cato benefactor, what can you do to safeguard your family’s financial/personal security. I hope this won’t appear tacky, but you will benefit by subscribing to my monthly financial/personal security strategy report.
Republicans blew the 2012 election for many reasons, including the wrong candidate, a weak platform without guts, and no understanding of two Americas or how to deal with it. Now it’s time for hardball. No more Mr. Nice Guy. America’s small business owners provide most of the jobs in the country. Small business leaders now have the daunting task of wresting government from the Marxist/military industrial complex crowd, which includes most of the politicians in Washington. There is much to be done!
