Republican Party To Be Replaced By “Libertarianism”? And Re-branded As “The Liberty Movement”?
I always hate it when certain words like “Liberty”, “Freedom” and “Democracy” are used against the very ideals in which they are meant to express and the meanings of the words become either completely lost or twisted in an Orwellian Double-Speak kind of way. This is what immediately came to mind while contemplating “The Liberty Movement”: http://www.libertarianism.com/content/the-liberty-movement/lib_mov
According to the above posted website:
“The Liberty Movement is the loose association of think tanks, activist organizations, political parties, and individuals who work to promote the ideas of free markets, civil liberties, and limited government across the globe.”
“Liberty is one of the central lessons of world history. Virtually all the progress the human race has enjoyed during the past few centuries is due to the increasing acceptance of free markets, civil liberties, and self-ownership.”
The Acceptance of Free Markets = Free Market Capitalism = Fuck Poor People
Limited Government Across The Globe = Austerity, Deregulation And Basically Allowing Corporations And The Super-Rich-Elite To Rule The World As They Already Do Right Now And To Allow Nature To Take It’s Course = Survival Of The Fittest = Fuck Poor People
How is that any different than what The Right-Wing-Republicans (And The Spineless Center-Right Democrats) work so well together to accomplish?
Where and how do my “civil liberties” and “self-ownership” come into play when I’m starving to death and homeless because I can’t find a job? Or when I can’t afford an education? Or while I’m spending almost every-single-day-of-my-entire-Life in a totalitarian workplace working for peanuts? How does that make me (And Millions Of Other Oppressed Poor People) “liberated”? and “free”?
I’ve heard talk that The GOP is on its way out the door as a viable political party because their anti-human agenda is just too blatantly obvious and it can’t possibly continue much longer in its current form -that people are finally waking up and no longer willing to accept a poisonous snake (who doesn’t even try to put on make-up to hide its true identity and to at least try to appear “human“) as anything other than a poisonous snake. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EodiBQ845_s It may be slowly happening, but I haven’t really seen any evidence of it yet, the voting half of the nation is still pretty much divided almost 50/50 between the-two-corporate-parties. And even if The GOP stepped completely out of the way and all we had were Neo-Liberal Center-Right Corporate-Owned “Democrats” -We would still be in A Lot of Trouble...
