Draining the Swamp and Turning It into a Septic Tank

Well, we’re about a week and a half post-election. All the Trump supporters got what they thought they wanted. It remains to be seen if they will really want what they get from a Trump administration.

I remain doubtful that there will be any real change or that there will be any meaningful difference between a Trump administration and what would have been under Hillary Clinton. I have to admit though, that I’m enjoying all the angst from the liberal media and infantile college students.

I found a quote this week that pretty well summarizes my view of this election -- and really of all of them. It even inspired me to construct the following meme:

Voting is like buying a lottery ticket, only dumber.

In any case, I can think of no reason to participate in selecting the next ruler of the yankee empire. As I often remark: Ain’t my flag; Ain’t my country. And I come to hold that position more firmly every day. 

Choosing the next emperor does nothing towards achieving the ultimate goal of small, limited, accountable, LOCAL governments.

Donald Trump is a northeastern, liberal money-grubbing yankee. We can expect his reign to reflect who he is. One of my favorite commentators, Fred Reed, recently wrote: “This column will follow the evolution of Donald Trump into Hillary Clinton.” Fred proceeded to list a number of items that already indicate the beginnings of this transformation. (

I have noted multiple such examples of this myself. I will mention but a couple and provide some headlines and links.

First, an article entitled: Lindsey Graham Backs Possible Trump Nominees, Slams Rand Paul Filibuster Threat”

Anyone backed by that consummate neocon, scalawag from South Carolina should be highly suspect. Amongst those he thinks would be good appointments are the likes of former New York City Mayor Rudy (“Why do you need the 4th Amendment, if you’re not doing something wrong?”) Giuliani and Nikki Haley, a second-generation carpetbagger and professed “Christian” who still worships in the temples of the pagan Sikh religion, in which she was raised.

Nikki Haley has proved herself to be the enemy of all true Southerners, of their heritage, and of their faith. She joyfully orchestrated the removal of the Confederate Flag from the grounds of the South Carolina statehouse.

What I really find odd is that some of my friends in the Southern Independence movement think that Haley has no place in a Trump administration. Let me remind you again that Trump is a northeastern, liberal money-grubbing yankee. Why wouldn’t this traitorous Republican governor of South Carolina fit right in? I suppose the bigger question might be: Why would a Southern Patriot support Donald Trump to begin with? And why would they think that he would support and promote their values?

Secondly, I recommend an article entitled:  “Ron Paul: Skeptical on Whether Trump Can 'Drain the Swamp'”

Ron Paul is one of the very, very few true statesmen that I have seen in my 66+ years. He matches the optimism of the wormy compromiser from South Carolina with a very healthy skepticism based upon the character and reputation of those who are being vetted by Donald Trump for positions in his administration. Of these potential appointments and nominees, Dr. Paul notes that they are "not exactly the kind of individuals who will change things."

An old folk/rock song from my youth contained these lyrics:

   “They paved paradise to put up a parking lot”

Along those same lines it would appear that Donald Trump intends to:

   “Drain the Swamp and Turn It into a Septic Tank”

I would love to be proven wrong and have to eat crow, but there seems to be very little prospect of that happening.

I’ve wearied myself by speaking of the blasted yankee government. I shall return now to the far more important struggle for Florida’s Independence.

Is it over yet? Please let it be over!

OK, y’all, so the liberal New York yankee has been selected as the new emperor of the Evil Empire, over the shrill liberal Chicago yankee.

I have to admit that even I can enjoy seeing the wailing and gnashing of the teeth of the liberal media and various celebrities who vowed to leave the country if Trump won.

Someone, who was once a friend (not sure he would still count himself as such), charged me with looking on those who supported Trump with contempt. That is simply not true. I think most of them are like-minded folks who have not yet been disabused of their myriad delusions concerning the Amerikan Empire. I believe that SOME of them – SOME of them -- will be awakened soon enough. Others will, unfortunately, return to their slumber, confident of their "victory" and glorying in the Trump presidency, which will essentially continue on the presidencies of the Bushes, the Clintons, Obama, etc. Really all that has transpired since the election of the tyrant Ape Lincoln.

I have ZERO confidence in seeing any real change or improvements in the Empire under the rule of Trump - BUT I am encouraged that the American people have shown their disgust and displeasure with the status quo by electing a candidate who was promoted as a genuine alternative.

Anyway, a few days have passed since the election and I think those of us who love liberty do well to sit down and try to put all of this into perspective.

A man whom I have known for many years, a man who was once called “the most dangerous man in the mid-South”, and a man that some of us know as the Moneychanger did this early on election day, before any of the results were in.

The SYSTEM kills freedom, because human freedom is its most lethal enemy

By Franklin Sanders

No point in talking about markets before the election results are in, but I want to put a bug in the ear to urge y'all to think holistically or systemically.

Loads of operatives in the politics industry -- Americans turn everything into an industry -- want you to believe that changing this or that little element in the system -- even changing the president or passing some amendment -- will change things.

Nothing could be further from the truth. This is whole-blindness, staring at the parts instead of the whole and fatuously wishing that changing some part will correct the whole.

With the yankee government, we are dealing with a SYSTEM. The whole system works together, and changing a president changes nothing. As proof, look at the last 36 years. Reagan changed things? Hardly. Biggest spender in US history until that time. Same holds for all his rotten successors, & most of his 20th century predecessors.

You are dealing with a SYSTEM, where over 50% of income comes from government spending, about 3/5 of that from federal spending, and about 2/5 from state & local government spending. Read that again, & draw the obvious inference: there is NO US economy, there is a one-legged economy that cannot stand without government spending.

So am I against incremental improvements & change? Not at all, but they are bootless, worthless, & feckless unless they aim at changing a SYSTEM which stands strong because like so many piglets half of everybody is sucking on the government teat. I'm not talking welfare, either, but defense spending & subsidies, which dwarf welfare spending. Every farmer who receives subsidies, only about 20% of farmers, in fact, will fight like an enraged mother banshee to keep that subsidy. More, the banks long ago seized control of Washington, so no politician will cross them by reforming them. No politician will stop NAFTA, GAFTA, or BLAFTA shipping US jobs overseas because the corporations who profit from slave labor own the politicians.

The entire system is ordered to profit a few at the many's expense.

Technically the system is FASCISM or national socialism or corporativism. Its strength is in the number of piglets at the teat. It began in this country in 1865 and grew to maturity during the New Deal. Since then it has metastasized into every crevice of privacy and life. To continue the metaphor, the System is the cancer, and the cancer must be killed or it will kill the body.

Most of all, the SYSTEM kills freedom, because human freedom is its most lethal enemy. Government claims to be god, and so like god, it must know and control everything. Freedom cannot coexist with the fascist state, nor can privacy.

I am not against incremental change, or even political activity, but you must view it holistically and systemically. Unless your activity works to change or eliminate the system, it only wastes your time & feeds the System's political industry. Far better to spend your efforts at the state & local level, removing taxes and regulations and restoring freedom in your own community. You have more leverage there than anywhere, and certainly more than at the national level.

Bear in mind: It is a System that troubles you, not a president, not a judge, not a constitutional amendment, not one law, but an entire System that oppresses you.

So take heart: whichever vile teenager wins today, you still have plenty of work to keep you busy dismantling their SYSTEM. Never let them make you think you "are the only one who thinks like you do" or that there is no hope. Brick by brick they built it, and brick by brick we can, and will, take it down.
