Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

From Being Protected to Becoming a Scapegoat

Victor Davis Hanson and Thomas Sowell have recently written companion articles (respectively "Two Californias"and "Mascot Politics") in which both comment on the current situation in California's Central Valley where the rich live on one side and the third-world poor live on the other side (living off of social service plastic welfare cards, of course) and appear to be from different planets based on their divergent living standards and respect for the law and civility, a socially divided situation largely caused by the federal government and its protection of the smelt fish and the denial of water to this important agricultural area of the state.

The poor are now tools of liberals who soak the rich and middle classes in order to provide welfare for the needy, whereas, as Mr. Sowell states, in the past the poor and destitute were treated with ridicule and were the subject of eugenics they are now treated as though they have been mistreated by society and need special protection and support from those who have abused them.

But after 40 years of supporting the poor with the excess wealth of our nation, the United States is now faced with enormous budget crises at the federal and state levels, and with no more money to spend, it's likely, given the liberal propensity to hang their former supporters in order to save their liberal hides, that they will now revert to their former ways and again blame the poor and immigrants in California for the deteriorating social, economic and environmental conditions that are developing there and in other parts of the nation where these people have settled and been artificially supported by misguided liberal values.

Just as the liberals were successful at changing their stance on denying blacks any rights following the Civil War and denying them entry to labor unions during the increased industrialization in the late 19th and early 20th centuries (and even to the present day with Senator Robert Byrd being an organizer for the KKK in his youth and then pretending to be the savior of blacks as a liberal Senator), liberals will go from currently wringing their hands at the plight of the poor and trapping them in the horror of welfare as a result of their "concern" in the mid and late 20th century, to pointing a finger of blame at the poor and immigrants when the government runs out of other peoples' money to dole out to them.

Liberals, with their foolish and immoral pandering to a class of people who misguidedly listen to their clap-trap and take the money that's handed to them, which only makes them eternally dependent on hand-outs, will turn on these same people and blame them for the problems that the liberals themselves have created when there is no more money to spread around and when the political going gets tough. Just stay tuned and watch.
