(OR: The greedy always eat their benefactors. )
What is the real significance of 61 percent of the voters, in Greece, voting not to
tighten their belts and “Knuckle down Winsocki”? (From the 1941 Broadway show “Best Foot Forward”) Well for Greece it means 61 % of the people are brain dead or silly, and want to be hurt. It cannot mean anything else. It also means, as Rooster has always said, any given population is roughly divided into threes. One third are common sense disabled, 1/3 are in the middle swinging from side to side, and 1/3 are ruled by common sense. In this case most of Greece’s middle voted for the blind and greedy, and a few voted for Common sense. The Yes vote was 39 Percent. Just based on demographic data the vote was predictable, and the socialist leaders knew it.
What, however, does it mean on the world stage? The Greece vote confirms that liberals suffer commonsencelessness (sic). Their ability to see the future is flawed, big time. The present Greece government is as liberal as they come and do not forget they were voted in, at a time austerity was turning the Greece economy around and things were looking up. This referendum simply allows the present government to say,”See we have to vote this way because the people want it”. Just a cover, and a lie, the mantra of liberalism.
Most important, Greece chaos is a good example, of the problem with Socialism in all its forms. Think of socialism as a cancer where one type of cell eats good cells. . Cancers only cure is massive doses of anti-cancer treatment, which can take many forms. Most are very painful to peace and tranquility. Socialism is the taking from one group to please another group. The problem is the pleasing time only lasts as long as the victims put up with it. You can never expect those getting free stuff to pass a law taking away their free stuff. Just does not work. There ain’t no free lunch, but to a bona fide liberal they either do not see it, or deny it. Ok, let us look at the big picture. Greece is just another present day example of the failure of Socialism. The U.S. is now a Socialist country so you can expect the same routine. Are there other current, on- going examples? Oh!! yes there are. How about Cuba which is right next door. Castro’s promises of free stuff failed, from the git-go. The economic collapse has been complete, except for the collection of 1950s cars. Now Cuba’s economy will be repaired, somewhat, by an overflow from a new star in the socialist galaxy……. us. Look at Argentina. It is a combination of socialism and dictator, which is normal. The present dictator is the only one with a motive to kill a prosecutor who challenged her. Look at Venezuela. Since Chavez came into power by giving free stuff to the greedy, that country has been in an economic collapse. Only its oil reserves have kept it from hitting total bottom. Political opposition is smashed. With a few exceptions most of South American countries are in one phase or another of socialism with strong and weak dictators. As you look across the globe this same show is repeated over and over again. Historically the greatest example of this failure was and is the Soviet Union. Its pure socialism collapsed and was replaced by a lesser form, but again with a dictator. One day he too will vanish and Russia’s bumpy road will continue.
Common sense folks understand that there should be a fair and equitable balance between the haves and the have-nots. What they do not get is the chaos they cause by allowing Haveanots keys to the treasury. It seems fair and equal but it is not. Many great thinkers have talked about this. Democracies always fail because they allow the Havenots to vote themselves a key. In a Constitutional Republic a citizen is born equal, but he or she does not grow up that way. For peace to prevail a system of government must be devised which prevents the taking, provides care of the helpless, and rewards hard work and good deeds. This system will necessarily have to restrict the vote of the brain dead, greedy, and silly.
