How Imperfect I Am
Nature abhors a vacuum, as our ears detect when a blast of air rushes into a just-opened soda can. There’s a manhood vacuum in America — an unnatural state — and we’re seeing, hearing, and feeling socialism surging to fill it, destroying a once-great country in the process.
Manhood is the willingness of a male to seize control of his destiny, face all adversity, take responsibility for his decisions, and fight for his rights — even when his adversary is female. It’s the antithesis of “yes, dear” or “she manipulated me” or “no real man lets a woman pay.”
Is manhood alive in America? Hell no. Instead, there’s an absence of manhood — a vacuum. Examples abound. On February 5, 2009, Barack Obama said this at the Democratic Caucus Issues Conference in Williamsburg, VA: “Michelle reminds me every day how imperfect I am.” How manly. Can you imagine Michelle making the reciprocal comment about him?
Male politicians (Clinton, Biden, Hatch, Leahy, Specter, Bush, and Obama) unconstitutionally created and perpetuated the Office on Violence Against Women; male voters elected and reelected them. Feminists love the manhood vacuum.
Maria Shriver proclaimed America “a woman’s nation” while males (not men) obsequiously acquiesced. Hillary Clinton beamed that US foreign policy revolves around women; males, as usual, sat in silence.
If America belongs to women, and women claim to want equality, why aren’t they compelled by law to defend it? Because a la carte equality for women, a violation of the Constitution, is a byproduct of the manhood vacuum.
Bedrock of Big Government
Socialism, which emphasizes “the group” (fascism derives from the Italian word for bundle) and marginalizes the individual, is the bedrock of Big Government. Under socialism, winners are vilified, penalized, and forced to fund the losers. This setup demotivates and demoralizes the go-getters — which is why rich people are leaving California and half of Americans pay no federal income tax.
Socialism begins at home and continues at school. When your son receives a “participation” trophy, he is learning socialism. When your daughter feels entitled to a man’s largesse — a redistribution of his wealth to her — she’s embracing socialism. When a school eliminates the valedictorian to protect the “feelings” of those not chosen, socialism reigns supreme.
Visualize this three-ceremony format for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London: opening ceremony, gold-medal ceremony for all participants (competition and winners are verboten), and closing ceremony. If socialism is good for countries, it’s good for athletics, right?
Perpetual Dependency and Despotism
Socialism, fascism, Marxism, collectivism, communism, Nazism, and progressivism — different flavors of Big Government — require wealth redistribution, lifestyle control, and entitlements dependency. If you like Big Government, you have small balls. If you believe Big Government is the solution to your problems, you aren’t a man.
Individualism, success, and cash are anathema to socialists — unless they’re in power. Look around the world. Study history. The only beneficiaries of socialism are, have been, and always will be the rulers. The big lie is that socialism helps poor people. Wrong. There’s no dignity in perpetual dependency and despotism.
Big Government can’t take root in a country with strong family units. Socialism must, therefore, disintegrate and replace the traditional family — beginning with marginalizing the father. Our laws and policies encourage divorce and out-of-wedlock pregnancies. Politicians pepper their speeches with references to “those single moms” while ignoring fathers.
Obama thinks so little of men that he exhorts them, via radio PSAs and Fatherhood.gov, to play catch with their kids. How insulting. Even though his Department of Health and Human Services shows that mothers cause most child abuse, there’s no Motherhood.gov. Where’s the male outrage? Nonexistent in the manhood vacuum.
Big Government can’t marginalize a man without his consent (he votes socialists into power), just as a woman can’t dig a man’s gold without his consent (he votes her into power). Failure to admit this reality causes the manhood vacuum.
Woodrow Wilson, 28th American president (1913-1921) and staunch progressive, eschewed individual liberty. Progressives favor the deliberate, incremental disregard of our Constitution, which protects individual liberty. Because manhood and liberty are inextricably linked, eroding liberty is an attack on manhood; the manhood vacuum enables liberty erosion.
In October 1914, Wilson made a seminal address in Pittsburgh at a YMCA celebration in which he revealed his misandry: “I have often said that the use of a university is to make young gentlemen as unlike their fathers as possible.” This is Big Government attacking the family by marginalizing fathers. Yet, males reelected this tyrant to a second term (women couldn’t vote until 1920).
The NoNonsense Bottom Line
Weakness. Inaction. Apathy. Fear. One never links such terms to our Founding Fathers, great men who risked their lives to break the yoke of tyranny and establish a bastion of individual liberty. Today, because of the manhood vacuum, advocates and purveyors of Big Government are destroying that amazing legacy with relative ease.
Remember: manhood and socialism cannot coexist; they are mutually exclusive.
To end Big Government and restore individual liberty: 1) grow a pair, and take control of your destiny; 2) associate only with proponents of small government; 3) never elect socialists and progressives; 4) stand up to women in every aspect of your life.
