Your News to Know for Thursday, May 9, 2013:
After watching the Democrats, specifically the Obama administration, break our nation’s moral and financial spine since 2009, I feel comfortable in laying out these predictions. I have been waiting to see any signs of life in the body we used to refer to as the “loyal opposition”. I see no signs of life. In fact, historians, lawyers and radio talk show hosts have all been running in circles while the GOP has been quietly engaged in business-as-usual and not trying to stop our nation’s rapid and deliberate destruction.
The method being used by our opponents who make up the Democrat Party (and enough Republicans to damage us) is actually a hybrid of adaptations from Karl Marx’s Crisis Theory which is found in his work “Theories of Surplus Value”. This detailed theory is Marx’s way of expressing the vulnerabilities of capitalism as it pertains to reactions in “surplus” conditions in manufacturing or exchange of capital into a commodity, then back again. That is to say if something stops the consumption of a product or commodity then it has a chain reaction across all spectrums of that particular chain of businesses, as well as the consumers in it. Are you confused yet? Let’s make it simple by using the recently uncovered scheme of the Department of Homeland Security to acquire the unjustifiable amount of over 2 billion rounds of ammunition.
Knowing that the Democrats, Obama and even some Republicans want to take your guns, they have ordered DHS to order the ammunition in amounts that would disrupt the normal production of ammunition. This creates surplus commodity in the consumer’s hands, and in this case the US Government and DHS are the consumers. The rest of the market for ammunition is disturbed, resulting in a “crisis” because the demand far outstrips the supply. Then the public got wind of what the government was doing and made a run on guns and ammunition in local gun shops and the Internet.
As was planned, the shortage of supply of ammunition as a result of unjustifiable demand from DHS starts to create Marx’s predicted devastation model of commerce on the gun shop owners. The gun shop owner typically makes very little profit on the price of a gun if they intend to be competitive. The products that gun shop owners make their profit are on consumables which Marx termed “commodities”. Since no ammunition is available to the public retailers as the producers are scouring for the components and raw material to fill those orders placed by the US Government, average citizens have stopped shooting their guns and have hoarded all ammunition that was available. Few people travel to a shooting range these days and for those that still have ammunition to sell, they are rationing what they have.
If there is scarce or no supply of ammunition, most gun owners have no need to set foot back in a gun shop. That means the gun store owner can’t sell the other consumable commodities such as targets, holsters, cleaning materials, solvents, tools and guns. Who would buy a gun now that you cannot buy any ammunition? First, you will see the small and medium ammunition manufacturers going out of business as we see in this article Gun Stores Seeing A Run On Ammunition. Then you will see the corner gun shops close as their consumer traffic will be non-existent. Next, the manufacturing of holsters, targets, cleaning supplies, clothing, camping gear, etc. will close for lack of demand and retail outlets.
If you think this use of Marx’s Crisis Theory is new I have some bad news for you. Liberals and Marxists have been using it since day one.& Some other famous larger gambits they have run are Cash for Clunkers, Obamacare and more TARPs then you can throw over all the gold ever minded in the world. They have all been enacted to destroy parts of our economy in the same fashion as the DHS 2 Billion-bullet buy-out. It’s just easier to see it since it directly destroys one of the Amendments to our US Constitution and every state constitution.
From here I can predict with great certainty that the GOP will lose every precinct that has lost a gun shop by the end of 2013 (most rural counties). The GOP has already lost much of its core support since they’ve backtracked on their promise of stopping a communist health care system from destroying the best health care system in the world. They have allowed voter fraud to go unchallenged all across the United States and have, for the last few years, refused to respect the terms of the contract they have sworn to uphold. They allowed us to be driven into a box canyon trap by pretending to advance false-flag anti-gun legislation that they knew would go nowhere. It acted as the predictable trigger for panic buying of guns and ammunition that engaged the Marx engine of Crisis Theory. (Remember never let a crisis go to waste?)
The joke will be on us if we have no guns and ammunition because the Second Amendment will be relegated to words on paper like Obama Care. Obama kept telling everybody you could keep your doctor but he didn’t tell everybody he was going to put your doctor out of business. Therefore, it was an inverted lie.
The GOP’s last true support group was from those who exercised their natural right to the ownership of a gun. They thought Second Amendment support was automatic in the heart of the Republican Party. Now we know that since the GOP has allowed the DHS steamroller to destroy the gun market that they have never been serious about the Constitution. The GOP holds the purse strings in the House of Representatives so there is no excuse for their failure.
The RNC may not give a damn about this but I can tell you how this will translate at the state and local level races coming up this year and next. It won’t be pretty for anybody running as a Republican. However, don’t worry about us, RNC, we’re just getting ready for the inevitable without you since you continue to refuse to perform your Constitutional duties and stop the destruction of our nation.
Suddenly it’s April 1775 all over again and Governor Dunmore has emptied the magazine in Williamsburg…
