Left Versus Right: Statistical Distributions Applied to Geopolitics

by Michael Stollaire

You hear time and time again that we are a center-right country, correct? So, I automagically remember my college statistics classes and the infamous “normal bell curve,” because we come to the conclusion that the average person in America has center-right geopolitical thinking.

However, I think we are approaching a different sample distribution, with a peak on the left and on the right, which is a mini version of what went on during The Civil War, and the civil rights riots in the 1960s, which paints a totally different picture of the average citizen’s political thinking, does it not? Doing the same Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), we have the same geopolitical/ideological average, indicating that America is center-right on the political spectrum; however, we see that America itself is transforming into a nation divided.

Normal Distribution and Probability Distributions ~ Defined:

We’ve got some cognitive dissonance going on in everyone’s head, because the Liberal Socialists and the Constitutional Conservatives have radically different definitions of “right” and “wrong” and “abnormal” and “normal.” Therefore, all of us are disturbed, wondering why we’re upset at what’s going on in the country. All of “us” are saying to ourselves, that something is obviously wrong with “them.” This is a perverse form of brainwashing that has transpired since circa 1900, via the mass media, alternative media, new media, etc. Indeed, we might view the vast majority of the content on television, the radio, corporate controlled internet websites and so forth as an extrapolation of Joseph Goebbels and his “Big Lie” propaganda technique. The reality is that most Americans believe what is in the news, simply because it is in the news. This is my cue to quote The Gipper.

“Trust but VERIFY!” ~ Ronald Reagan

Cognitive Dissonance ~ Defined:

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

If we allow this trend to continue, we will see the economic and geopolitical issues present in Greece and parts of The Middle East to invade our own shores. If you think this cannot happen in America, you have taken your liberty and freedom for granted, as it certainly can and will. There is no reason to panic, but there are plenty of reasons to stand together and fight for what you feel is correct. The Great American Experiment is about allowing men and women to govern themselves, whereas the statist progressives would have you believe that you are all little children that need to be taken care of, via regulation of every aspect of your lives. San Francisco’s removal of McDonalds Happy Meal toys is an example: Should America allow people like Nancy Pelosi to decide what food you eat? I think the answer is a definitive NO, as if we allow them to regulate our food intake, they will take even more steps towards a Nanny State paradigm. What’s next? Letting them tell you what clothes you will wear, and so forth?

Draw the line in the sand, and take your country back, before it is taken from you. If your freedom and liberty is lost, it will be lost forever. We The People… UNITED WE STAND!

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” ~ Ronald Reagan

God bless you, your family and friends, and God Bless America!

Let’s get to work!

God Bless America and As Always…

Stay Strong,

Liberty’s Laggards

A recent article in “MailOnline” the internet version of the Daily Mail from the United Kingdom provided an individual freedom analysis for the 50 states of the United States. There’s some irony in the fact that a British paper sought to examine liberty in the former colonies. Clearly when describing liberty within states there are subjective parameters at work. The 50 “laboratories for democracy” have considerable leeway in determining how their states will be organized and function. The three largest areas of limitation for them within the federal Constitution are the mandated federal obligations as given in the enumerated powers, the prohibitions for curtailing inalienable rights, and the states must be democratic republics. If the fifty states take their freedoms seriously, there are multiple opportunities to experiment with laws and rulemaking to generate environments for prosperity and liberty.

 

Alas, too many of our formerly-sovereign states have followed the lead of Big Brother by implementing restrictive regulatory structures and punitive tax policies. Where they might have flourished as laboratories of freedom and opportunity, they, instead, overregulated, overtaxed and overwhelmed their citizens with obstacles and constraints. The “MailOnline” piece by Mark Duell lists New York and California as the worst offenders in the limitation of individual freedom. These are two of the largest states in the union…rich in resources, talent and population. It defies logic for states so richly endowed to squander their natural wealth for the false dream of centralized government. Another state that Duell has categorized as “less free” is my own native Ohio. As a candidate for statewide office in 2010, I drove across the entire state. It was clear to me how statism impacts the economic environment of the state. Certainly there were pockets of prosperity, but most of my beloved Buckeye state was staggered by the loss of industry…and the tangential businesses, suppliers and service companies that thrive when the industries are doing well.

 

The federal government and the state regulatory apparatus combined to construct high hurdles and elongated approval processes for plants to upgrade. In addition the labor union situation in Ohio has strangled attempts to innovate and create a competitive cost profile. Big government, lousy business opportunities and excessive union power are a troika for job killing. A corollary indicator of the relative freedom of the respective states is the apportionment of congressional seats following the census. One of the freer states, Texas, picks up 4 additional congress critters while New York and Ohio each lose two seats…and the corresponding national influence. Florida with its friendly atmosphere for freedom will gain 2 seats while Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey and Pennsylvania will have one fewer congressperson in 2012. Missouri also loses one seat as does Louisiana…probably an after effect of Katrina. Indeed, there is a very high correlation between a state’s level of freedom and its growth and prosperity. You might ask why California is not on the “loser list” if it is rated as “less free.” The census counts people not citizens, and the continuing migration of non-citizens to California has kept the population large enough to offset the out migration of business, jobs and citizens.

 

Freedom and prosperity are linked. Where the people have the freedom to function without an oppressive regulatory environment or restrictive workplace rules, they will capitalize and maximize their opportunity. Lower taxes will encourage businesses to reinvest in growth and technology. Lower taxes and spending by state governments will encourage commerce and industry. Sadly, states, cities or any other government entity cannot resist the urge to grow and control. Only one of the original thirteen states was considered to be relatively free by Duell’s analysis: New Hampshire, the state with the stirring “Live Free or Die” motto. The other two top-ranked states were South Dakota and Indiana.

 

As a former researcher, I am aware that correlation does NOT confirm causality. Common sense suggests, however, that states that are growing may be doing so because of lower taxes, fewer union complications and sensible regulatory environments. Those liberty-lagging laboratories of democracy who have selected more government, more regulation and higher taxes as their modus operandi are faltering … staggering. As their businesses close or move, their tax bases dwindle and their social network costs increase. It’s a downward spiral that can be corrected by choosing liberty. Some experiments fail and others succeed. The intelligent observer can discern the difference and respond accordingly. Liberty, freedom always wins. Tyranny is a loser.

Reinstating the National Day of Prayer and Prayer In Schools

If elected, I hereby give my sacred word of honor that I will:

  • Reinstate The National Day of Prayer

  • Reverse the decisions The Supreme Court: Engel v. Vitale [1962] and Abington School District v. Schempp [1963] (which included the well publicised case of Murray v. Curlett), establishing the current prohibition on state-sponsored prayer in schools and Lemon v. Kurtzman [1971] to allow prayer in schools

Obama: Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due?

Obama: Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due?

by Michael Alan Stollaire

Yes, I am giving Obama a few points… well… at least one. For the first time in his entire Presidency he did the right thing: He gave the order to kill Usama Bin Laden, who is the personification of the horror America experienced on September 11, 2001. However, did he do it for the right reasons? Above and beyond that, he seems to be glorifying himself in the mainstream media (MSM), as if he’s the next military genius, like Patton. I know… I know… I’m not shocked, since Obama’s arrogance and ego should be granted their own zip codes; however, I want to make this one point crystal clear:

99.99999999999999999% of the credit for Usama Bin Laden’s assassination goes to the US Military, our Special Forces, The Navy Seals, and 0.000000000000000000001% of the credit goes to Obama acting as Commander in Chief (for once), and executing the command to kill Bin Laden.


Now, where did the intel come from that led to all of this? Of course, from the advanced interrogation techniques that the far-left liberal radicals demonized for years on end, and were about to charge members of the Bush administration with crimes for. I don’t know about all of you, but I can say on the record that if one more person starts talking about waterboarding being torture, I’m going to have a projectile vomiting session right here and now. The Bush/Cheney administration did all the policy work, took all the heat about “going against The Geneva Convention” etc. and Obama (of course) is taking all the credit, as if he led the effort from start to finish.


Can’t you just see Obama staring in the mirror, and seeing a reflection of JFK there, like a political anorexic that has a massively distorted view of himself? He’s probably talking to himself about how awesome he is, and why the term “awesome” needs to be upgraded to a new Wikipedia term, like “awesome 2.0” just to cover his epic awesomeness. Too bad the rest of us see him with 20/20 vision, and the epic failure of Obama’s policies. He is very effective, though… effective at destruction of America’s sovereignty.


Now, let’s look at the excellent timing involved in the situation: Obama’s approval rating is at an all-time low, heading into full-bore 2012 campaign mode, Trump is harassing him to the point of insanity about his long-form birth certificate and school records, and Libya looks like another Vietnam, showing the entire world how weak a “leader” Obama is. The pollers must have soiled their pants at that point, and since we all know now that Obama knew about Bin Laden for several months, that was a good moment to double-tap him, so that he could show up at Ground Zero with the 9-11 families there ~ only the liberal leaning supporters, of course… ~ to get a double-point uptick.


Yes, I am saying that Barack Obama is leveraging our generation’s Pearl Harbor, the deaths of thousands of innocent Americans, and the assassination of public enemy #1 to optimize his chances of re-election.

So now that his approval rating got a boost, he can go back to rallying his far-left radical base. Surprise, surprise! Obama was just on TV, indicating that we have to pass The Dream Act. This so-called “Amnesty” is nothing more than the organized crime/mafia of the liberal family bribing people to buy/steal votes, so they remain in power for decades/centuries to come. They could CARE LESS about the average American, and The American Taxpayer is paying for all of this ~ we are already $14-15 Trillion in debt! Did anyone else vomit, or was it just me? The worst part is that this “bribe people to buy votes” strategy isn’t even ORIGINAL. This is FDR and LBJ on steroids, and another typical move out of the tax and spend liberal playbook.


Before I let you all go, one last point: stop paying attention to the day-to-day events in the media. They are mostly useless, and do you really need to have your eyes glued to the TV, watching Fox News so you can find out the exact shade of purple and the thread count of the turban that Bin Laden was wearing when he got his head blown off? He’s dead, and he’s a coward for using one of his many wives as a human shield. He’s evil, and goodness has prevailed. Thank God for that. However, now that’s all over, and this is a closed-end news story.


Start asking yourself and others the age-old question: Are you better off now, than you were in 2008? For the vast majority of us, the answer is a distinct: HELL, NO! People are getting very upset that Obama’s approval rating is up over Operation Bin Laden ~ however, the reality is that THE ECONOMY will determine if Obama gets elected. Therefore, as long as I’m paying $5 per gallon at the pump, unemployment is 8-10%, and 10-15% of Americans are using food stamps, Obama will get his ass kicked in November 2012, period.

Get over it, and let’s get going. Focus on doing the day-to-day things that are necessary for ultimate victory in 2012, defined as taking The Oval Office, taking the majority in The US Senate, and expanding the GOP majority in The US House of Representatives. I am not talking about RINOs either ~ I am referring to true Constitutional Conservatives, that will lead us out of despair, and into prosperity. This means less posts, and MORE VOTES! Research who is running in your precinct, district and state, and I mean everything from your local school board, all the way to US Senate, and of course, the current GOP candidates (where Herman Cain has established an early lead from his debate slam-dunk!)

Stop talking, and start WALKING! TAKE ACTION!!!

God bless you, your family and friends, and God Bless America!

Let’s get to work!

God Bless America and As Always…

Stay Strong,
