Cain’s ahead, but GOP elites won’t admit it

EXCERPTS from: A Political Establishment Without Memory By Eric Odom (Media Director)
http://libertynews.com/2011/10/29/a-establishment-without-memory/

Regardless of your views on Herman Cain as a candidate, you surely must admit the way the media and establishment hacks have reacted is laughable. First, the polling data. Herman Cain is at the top of the national average.

That Cain is on top is not up for dispute and should be obvious to any reporter who does his/her job from at least a half objective view. But that isn’t what’s happening. (He gives numerous examples of news sources referring to Romney as front-runner.)

Most journalists and GOP elitists are refusing to acknowledge is that this campaign is uncharged territory. (He goes off on Karl Rove for a few paragraphs.)

Like most political establishment hacks, Rove is old school. He’s operating as if it’s 2000 and a movement of conservatives isn’t real. And worse, he’s doing so on behalf of a candidate who is pro-gun control, pro-choice, and pro-government mandated healthcare.

2008 should have taught this gang a harsh lesson. If you present the American public with a moderate like John McCain or Mitt Romney, you’re not going to get an energetic reaction. 2010 should have been the biggest lesson of them all. The movement defeated countless establishment candidates and took a major chunk out of the existing power structure in Washington.

Now here we are in 2012, watching the political establishment fight against that same movement. Either they can’t remember what just happened, or they refuse to accept it as reality.

Re: the polling data

I’m gratified to see my personal fave, Rasmussen, is really close to the average. I’m not surprised ABC/WaPo and CNN show Romney on top. They skew their polls to show what the DNC wants them to show and the DNC wants to run against Mayo On White Romney so they can make the race about Obama’s race … again. -CtH

Networks Hit Cain Story 50 Times in Less Than Four Days; Ignored Clinton Scandals
http://www.mrc.org/biasalert/2011/20111103124000.aspx

November 03, 2011 Media Research Center report by Scott Whitlock – Over a period of just three and a half days, NBC, CBS and ABC have developed an insatiable hunger for the Herman Cain sexual harassment story, devoting an incredible 50 stories to the allegations since Monday morning. In contrast, over a similar period these networks mostly ignored far more substantial and serious scandals relating to Bill Clinton.

Philadelphia Mayor speaks

Posted by Chrissy the Hyphenated

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter took the podium at his church in West Philly on Sunday, August 7, 2011 to admonish teens for making the city look bad with the recent mob attacks and “diminishing their race.”

Start at about 25:00 and listen to the END. Seriously, you have to catch the last parts where he gets a standing ovation from the parents! LOL It’s fabulous to see a black leader say these things!

H/t to JW for sending me the link.

Economic Systems

Posted by Chrissy the Hyphenated because the article posted by Pete is SO good, I want to give it an extra push!

EXCERPTS (link below)

People have been discussing economic systems for more than two thousand years.  As described in my books, Science and Technology in World History, Vols. 1 & 2, communism was advocated by Plato as early as the fourth century BC.

But Plato’s student, Aristotle, disparaged communism by observing “that which is common to the greatest number has the least care bestowed upon it.  Every one thinks chiefly of his own, hardly at all of the common interest; and only when he is himself concerned as an individual.”

[I would think anyone who has parented a teen can relate to Aristotle’s argument.]

Aristotle concluded that the ills which are supposed to arise from private property in fact originated in human nature.

In Principles of Political Economy (1848), John Stuart Mill (1806-1873) gave three reasons to severely limit government interference in a nation’s economy and markets.

First, any increase in government power is a threat to human individuality, freedom, and originality, qualities necessary for the progress of the human race.

Second, market economies function more efficiently and produce more prosperity.

Third, laissez-faire economies inculcate moral virtues in citizens by making them more self-reliant, virtuous and intelligent.  “A people,” Mill explained, “who expect to have everything done for them … have their faculties only half developed.”

[It occurs to me that the apparently widespread phenomenon of overgrown children living in their too-tolerant mothers’ basements is part of the cultural phenomenon that led to Barack Obama’s election.]

To test socialism versus capitalism, we would have to take one or more countries with similar social and physical characteristics and divide them in half.  After assigning a different economic system to each country, we would then sit back for fifty years and observe what happens.

But this experiment has already been performed through an accident of history.  We know the answer.  At the close of World War II, Germany and Korea were divided into socialist and market economies.  Socialism failed dramatically.  East Germany had to build the Berlin Wall just to keep people from fleeing.

In the U.S., we exist in a curious state of denial.  We acknowledge the inferiority of socialism but continue to become more and more socialistic.  Every attempt to shrink the size of government or repeal a regulation brings about a shriek, like a bottle being pulled out of the mouth of an infant. 

I cannot recall a Republican president or Congress who reduced the size of the federal government.  No one wants to surrender a special privilege or entitlement.  We know what the best system is, but we lack the discipline to return to it.
