THE PROGRESSIVE ECONOMIST

Renowned economists would have us believe that economics is a mysterious vortex of kinetically sensitive financial quantities. Thereby, originating a factoid that only the intellectually blessed of cognitive genius could possibly grasp, an economy’s meaningfulness. Liberal progressive economists sporting PhD credentials by variable means, perpetuate the mystery of economics as innately ambiguous and too abstruse for common comprehension.

In the interest of buttressing their omnipotent façade, while reinforcing the mysteriousness of their wonkiness, they speak in a dialect imitative of English — but purposely designed as nothing more than a series of soliloquies on the merits of generalization.

These economists of PhD credentials are not harbingers: despite their insistence on the viability of economic models built on definitive factualisms, the truth is, they cannot rationalize the dynamics of an irrational marketplace. Nonetheless, they can pretend to foresee the future and profess that the way, the truth, and the light are their providence.

A nation’s economics intrinsically convolutes the economist onto a symbiotic relationship with the politician. These two professions are, often for differing reasons, enjoined: The economist, while striving to inject economic certainty, collaborates with politicians seeking to attain (or retain) their office. This collaborative creates the opening (excessive and illogical regulation) for an economy permeated with marketplace distortions that pervert the otherwise natural flow of buy & sell transactional risk and reward.

It is impossible for individual liberty and freedom to exist in an economy free of chaotic untimeliness. An economy influenced by the enjoinments of politicians and economists is the preparatory culmination of a democratic republic and the beginning of autocratic socialism. Perfect, even near perfect, as with egalitarianism is a useful canard for the progressive economist.

Progressive economists and their bedfellow politicians have created an operational dimension free of constitutional restraints. They function within their manufactured isle protected by ambiguity, “the process,” and an apathetic, “what’s in it for me,” citizenry.

More laws sum into less liberty…





THEY CALL THEIR STANDS A MORAL IMPERATIVE

“Never Trump,” the battle cry of and from the disenchanted who obstinately pledge a no-vote for Trump. How incredibly stupid is that! Imagine the thought process of the “Never Trump” cadre: These otherwise conservative Republicans are asserting their sensibilities of conscience. A moral vector deep within their ethos of righteousness has prompted these otherwise conservative voters to enlist (by not overtly voting for Trump) in the election of a liberal progressive with a proven track record of habitually lying to the American people. Effectually, these righteous ones, prompted by a binding moral obligation of their own creation, will directly assist in the election of an immoral/amoral person to the presidency of the United States?

Interestingly, the “Never Trump” movement is sprinkled with the crème de la crème of the respected intelligentsia of the conservative perspective. Their brethren of such electoral dumbness includes spiteful politicians, political operatives, as well as the contrarians of sanity who cannot get past the fact that Trump, against all odds of doing so, won the primary.

Trump’s policy flip-flops, his constancy of wasting time and resources while responding to personal issues of collateral importance, his off-the-cuff speechifying initiating subsequent clarifications, his inclinations for panegyric self-indulgence, and his habitual exclamations of assertions that are often scurrilously inflammatory — all of these behavioral dysfunctions require modification or deletion.  

Mrs. Clinton’s judgments, just on the Libyan debacle, without considering the loss of life in Benghazi and her insistence on faulting a video as the cause du jour, plus lying to the families of the Benghazi fallen is sufficient evidence of her dire lack of trustworthiness and an inescapable example of operational incompetence. Of course she will continue the willfulness of progressivism, the purposeful extension of Obama-ism, and the Europeanism of America.

Amazingly, the “Never Trump” entourage concedes the effectual counter-to-the-constitution results of a Clinton presidency; and still, they persist in their anti-Trump declarations.

If Hillary Clinton should win this election and the Republicans lose the Senate, we can kiss the land of the free and home of the brave away… because we conservatives will be the fox, hunted by the hounds.

Certainly, the “Never Trump” folks will be part of the blame…
