Information isn’t an opinion, a feeling, or an emotion.
Information is factual data.
How far it is to the next town that has gas, is never answered by “well it feels like”.
The answer is always given in time or distance.
This is information.
The rest of the cacophony is just noise.
For example we hear ridiculousness all the time such as “She is speaking her truth”.
There is no such thing as his or her truth.
There is only THE TRUTH.
His or her truth is either an opinion or a lie.
A very common example of this is polling.
Polling used to have a very important role in our elections but today’s polling is propaganda attempting to excite one group, depress another, or both at the same time.
For instance in this year’s Arizona Senate race, according to polling, the Democratic Candidate (until last Wednesday) was ahead by a couple of points.
A very simple search will locate a website called Ballotpedia.
On this site the results for the Republican and Democratic Primaries in 2018 are posted.
Total votes for all Democratic Candidates: 396,586.
Total votes for all Republican Candidates: 509,418.
Over one hundred thousand more votes for the Republican Candidates than the Democrats, yet some random polling person, makes five hundred calls to “selected voters” and reports that the Democrat is winning.
For the Democrat to win well over one hundred thousand Republican voters will have to stay home and not vote at all, after already voting in the Primary OR roughly fifty-seven THOUSAND Republican voters, who again already voted for Republican candidates in the PRIMARY, will have to switch and vote for the Democrat.
The only way this happens is complete and unadulterated fraud.
Of course some will point to the Independent vote but most Independents vote middle of the road and the Democratic Party crashed hard into the left ditch a long time ago.
The Arizona Republican should win in a landslide.
We can say this because we have proven facts that over nine hundred thousand Arizonans voted a certain way yet the “polls” (again until last Wednesday) said otherwise.
Indiana is even worse.
Total Primary votes for the Democratic Candidates: 284,681.
Total Primary votes for the Republican Candidates: 506,700.
There is no excuse on the planet that is going to explain 222,019 more votes and no I don’t care that the Dem ran unopposed.
Furthermore according to Open Primaries, Independents in Indiana, can vote in either Primary.
I’m sure they did.
Yet according to the polls the Democrat is leading by two and half points.
Another easy, but stunning disregard for facts, is the statement that the United States of America is a Democracy.
Democracy is fourth on the list of five in Socratic Theory.
Aristocracy, Timocracy, Oligarchy, DEMOCRACY, Tyranny.
The idea of a Republic was to be better than Democracy.
To halt the slide into Tyranny.
It’s that simple.
Genius always is.
The concept of a Republic is to protect and serve the Individual unlike Democracy that protects and serves the Majority.
I’ll make it even simpler using some of today’s verbiage.
Democracy is the Pony Express.
A Republic is the Internet.
Democracies will never get better and will eventually succumb to the worst of human behavior.
A Republic will never get worse, because if it is lost, society reverts back to one of the other aforementioned forms of Socratic Theory.
Alexander Tytler spoke and wrote about this as early as the Eighteenth Century.
Socrates did it long before this and outlined his theory to explain the levels of the culture known as Oppression.
In those days it was very rare for the masses to get access to this type of information but today it is available in the blink of an eye, the touch of a keystroke, yet too many, do not bother.
They’d rather be fed by the idiot box known as the television trough.
Repeating half-truths, obfuscations, and outright lies without the slightest inkling of curiosity, to research the blather they bother not to wash or rinse, but rather repeat.
Silly statements, like “China is a Republic, so was the USSR” are so nonsensical, the term “stinking unwashed masses,” is most underwhelming in the description of these Homo sapiens.
A Republic is an opportunity but it is up to those in the Republic to decide what is important to the Individual and what is not.
What is guaranteed, in as much as behavior can be guaranteed, and what is not.
Hence, the creation of one of the greatest written documents in the history of Man.
The United States Constitution.
The genius of the document so great, while its words changed the world, the humility of the writers allowed, if needed, upgrades could be made.
The writers also understood the failings of Democracy and orchestrated very specific checks and balances inside the Constitution to ensure that an OVERWHELMING majority of the People must be in agreeance for any changes to occur.
Article Five covers this process in full.
In short, two-thirds or sixty-six percent, of both houses in Congress must agree to even propose an amendment to be sent to the States and three quarters or seventy-five percent of the States must ratify for the amendment to be added.
The same can be done in a national convention with the same percentages applying.
These are facts, are easily found in this incredible document, and provide excitement and joy to those who choose to read and bask in the light, found only, where freedom lives.
The United States is special for many reasons.
Compassion, intellect and perseverance are but three in a long list of blessed excellence but all items on that list are only there because of one thing.
The ferocious requirement of freedom.
Benjamin Franklin, genius personified, is credited with saying this to a woman who asked him a simple question.
“Well doctor what have we got a Republic or a Monarchy?”
“A Republic, if you can keep it,” he replied.
Even then Democracy was not an option.
It isn’t today either.
Thank you Dr. Franklin.
We’ll keep our Constitutional Republic.
One way or another.
We also thank those brilliant minds in the Eighteenth Century, who provided us one last check and balance, and made sure the 2nd Amendment “shall not be infringed”.
By ballot or by bullet.
Choose wisely Democrats, before the choice is made for you and let us all be reminded of the words of John Adams.
“Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”
Keep threatening our way of life Liberals, and the option of suicide, will be removed.
