I am an American. I was raised in Western Pennsylvania, but ended up working all over the USA.

I loved Hattiesburgh, Mississippi.
Boston and Southern Massachusetts was and still is awesome.
Indiana will always be home.
Kentucky might be a bit of a "dark horse", but my heart sill always be there.
California is great, but today does not look anything like I remember.
Texas was and is, completely awesome.
Lousiana, especially New Iberia will always have a part of me.

After a while of dealing with Obama trying to turn America into a version of his home nation; Kenya, I decided to leave.

I moved to China. China, what it is today, and what it represents is FAR, FAR different than what I was expecting. It might be called communist, but it is actually a very Conservative nation that has implemented Free-Market policies that are very American Conservative in nature. Mr. Deng tried to copy Mr. Ronald Reagan. The communists in Beijing fought him every step. However, they gave him a chance. They allowed him to try to implement it on a "small" scale. They gave him Shenzhen to try to implement his policies.

Today, China is what it is precisely because they implemented Ronald Reagan economic policies. You will never, ever hear the liberal media admit that.

Most posters on FR tend to repost articles for "experts" on China, many of which hasn't been to China in decades, if at all. It's all nonsense. And, I do mean NONSENSE.

Please note, reporters no longer report on news. They are now a propaganda arm of wealthy global oligarchs. We owe it to ourselves to treat them as they actually are, and not what they like to call themselves.

I find the NPC meme hilarious. So here are some of my favorites for reuse elsewhere. Enjoy


As Ronald Reagan asked in his speech “A Time For Choosing” (October 1964), where are you going to go?

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is a perfect example what is wrong with America.

It is beyond pitiful that she is so ignorant.

Even sadder are the idiots who voted for her.

It is not surprising so many people don’t know WHO to vote for; they don’t even know WHAT to vote for.

“Only the educated are free.” - Epictetus

“No nation can be ignorant... and free.” - Thomas Jefferson

As predicted by our Founders, we now have become a nation primarily comprised of parasites: https://www.weeklystandard.com/mary-katharine-ham/72-year-old-missourians-anti-dem-billboard-torched-by-vandals-twice

Nobel Laureate Economist FA Hayek wrote all about it in his book “Road to Serfdom” - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Road_to_Serfdom

“....in which the author “[warns] of the danger of tyranny that inevitably results from government control of economic decision-making through central planning.”[1] He further argues that the abandonment of individualism and classical liberalism inevitably leads to a loss of freedom, the creation of an oppressive society, the tyranny of a dictator, and the serfdom of the individual.”

“That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach.” – Aldous Huxley

“In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all – security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again.” - Edward Gibbon (1737-1794) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Gibbon and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_History_of_the_Decline_and_Fall_of_the_Roman_Empire

“At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child – miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.” - P. J. O’Rourke

If you are content living life on the Democrat plantation, subservient to the apparatus promised by Marx, Obama, Clinton et al – you will have little interest voting for a conservative who promises you a job.

If you can’t read, conservatism (personal responsibility) is a hard sell.

Humanistic psychologists like Maslow really don’t consider the macroeconomic impact when a sizable segment of the population achieves, enabled by endless welfare, achieves self-actualization standing on a street corner all day. There is little or no incentive to drive them out of poverty when the government provides all your basic security needs and crime fulfills the remainder.

Maybe I’m too cynical?

A Baby Boomer and I can’t find the America where I grew up.

The American’s Creed (William Tyler Page – 1917): “I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.” - Accepted by the U.S. House of Representatives April 3, 1918.

“The concept of a republic became a powerful force in Britain’s North American colonies where it led to the American Revolution. Republicanism is distinguished from both the liberalist tradition and the socialist tradition.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republicanism

“Republicanism is the guiding political philosophy of the United States. It has been a major part of American civic thought since its founding. It stresses liberty and unalienable individual rights as central values, making people sovereign as a whole, rejects monarchy, aristocracy and inherited political power, expects citizens to be independent in their performance of civic duties, and vilifies corruption.
“American republicanism was founded and first practiced by the Founding Fathers in the 18th century. For them, according to one team of historians, “republicanism represented more than a particular form of government. It was a way of life, a core ideology, an uncompromising commitment to liberty, and a total rejection of aristocracy.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republicanism_in_the_United_States
