More Honesty on why I don't like Obama
My first post was in regards to where Obama considers the wealth line to be and what it means given inflation.
My Second, explained that I have somewhat of am expectation of a decline in civilization of one degree or another and without the flourish of the
humor I used, I think, Obama represents Internal strife leading to the potential of a sit x and McCain represents External, International strife,
which I think I have a better chance of surviving despite the global repercussions being more extreme
and that btw is a strong IF scenario where reason no 1 is a reality for me as an entrepreneur
Back to Earth though for reason no 3
I could in many ways support a more socialist set of policies, more than once I have thought that, Star Trek and restrained capitalism would be a
better way to go
I do not like to work, and this is selfish and I admit I have a selfish side where, the Mammal in me puts my family first
In Business for myself, I sometimes have to work hard, but always with the capacity to achieve enough means to end to not have to work for a time...
(coming of a year stretch of that right now)
I don't like it for wealth, but rather freedom to grow as an individual
Socialist economic implies to me that, I might be forced to get a Job
on an Intellectual level that is Death, my doom, my studies, my research, my exploration, my time to be a Father is ruined
I have never had a job, not for more than a year at age 38, if I do it is only to raise fast cash to start a new business.
I can not... ever work under another person, I wont, I don't like it, I can't schedule myself in that manner, I do not think like everyone else, I
have never been able to conform to a set schedule, not as a child, not now, not ever... I fail and have admittedly no desire to try given that
currently I make more money the other way anyway
I go to the beach, on weekdays when no one is there, same for shopping and other aspects of life, never wait in line, suffer no crowds unless I wish
to, like a concert etc,etc...
I can...sit on ats all day and make up my work the next day
I can work for 24 hrs straight and then take 2 days off and go dive a cave
I can make love at noon on a Tuesday and see my kids after school
and in my life
I never saw my dad... not divorced but because the guy had a job and a 2 hr commute
and the Internet has freed me of all that
I can... live a natural life, more like a farmer or any other period in human history prior to the industrial revolution
and I feel like socialism in the end is more an answer to industrial era issues which most Americans still live in, rather than communication era
issues which I have none...
It is my concern, that given Obamas economics, it could become very difficult for me to maintain my freedoms
he talks of compulsory service
he talks of wealth distribution
and frankly in regards to the later, my only goal is to do what I belive is needed, buy my freedom from slavery
I view the industrial era as, the worst era in human history in terms of human freedom, slaves were set free and we were forced to all be wage
and to me, the one redemption in it all, is that if your a good, smart slave
you can buy your freedom from slavery
And.. I see that option vanishing and keeping us in Industrial era politics
Because really if Obama offered, real socialism, free foodm housing, clothing, health, car and it was like star trek... you weren't FORCED into a
perticular labor, you were allowed to live and...become what you will... I could live with that
I would study and do things and eventually I am sure I would make a fabulous contribution to the world... I as an individual would not be a welfare
baby for life under that system
But I see this as more welfare, money enough to barely survive for the poor and an inability to rise ... i.e. you will have to get a job and there
will be only so much money you can make and if you don't get a job... your going to be enslaved into something you don't wish to do and a life that
is not free...
For my 2 cents worth...
I'd be happier, in a world where...there was no society and I had to fend for myself... because i'd take my acre and mule and build my house from
trees and have a life in one year that in current economics takes 30 years to have... I could build these amenities myself with my mind and hands a
heck of allot faster
so in that I'd prefer anarchy to socialized control
because the offering appears to be industrial era socialism
not communication era socialism in which it is understand that we have vast resources available to mankind and no limitations
It is state sponsored, not human sponsored socialism... it's sadly more like Hitlers socialism in that You live for your country a sovereign nation
not a sovereign man or woman
and currently the system we are in I detest, and McCain represents it for sure
I can have freedom from the state in this system, I do not know... that under Obamas plans my freedom exists the same way
I think with a degree of certainty, buzzwords like accountability, responsibility, duty, and the like will be tacked on to me
and frankly, I am bright, I don't much need a system and I don't want to be controlled
and I have almost... complete escape from that right now between communications era business skills and a capitalist system
I'm not talking the upper levels where some go on to make Billions and have no accountability... they take action over lives they should be held
I simply...work niche services on the web
any where in the world I like given economics
the communication era is very different, I work globally
and... National socialism is asking me to work nationally and perhaps to conform to the behaviors and beliefs of those around me...
and, I think most of them are Idiots to be quite blunt
I don't want to commute again because the 10 closest people too me have to also
I don't wish to suffer when the local economy is bad...I simply sell my wares overseas
and I don't really conform to that lifestyle I think it produces...govt raised children when parents are out doing service to theory nation every day
and conforming for the sake of the greater good...
My kids have had dad around for 90% of their lives, even though I am sadly divorced now, my children can have me... more than parents that are
together if dad gets home at bedtime and has one vacation a year and needs to run errands with mom on the weekends
It's the life of a serf
and whatever anyone thinks of any economics
I did this... I invented myself and created an economic system that works for me and gives me those freedoms...
he could very well take that away from me
and I could not and would not adapt, I would have no choice but to be a rouge element
I could never go back after having had freedom, not for long...
and this, is a very frightening thought for me. Because crazy rants some times aside, I am a peaceful man who loves his children and enjoys life to
some might say I could find solace in Academia, and I have tried that and found, you need to really conform your beliefs to the authority of the
institution for that tenure and this is something I can not do to be simply allowed to study what I wish to study day by day
I have grave concerns for my freedom, because socialism done right could be a great thing... done wrong, which brings me full circle to my first
post... it could ruin my freedom
and I love my freedom so much that like humorous post 2, I would if I had a choice rather see it all fall apart and keep that freedom and like
Gilligan's Island "no cars no trucks no movie stars not a single luxury..." live like that
Then ever go back to spending my days growing old, under stress, controlled in words and actions and routine by another human being.
I often think how horrible it is that from what I read, so many have not had true freedom, and I am not talking wealth...the freedom to come and go
daily as you wish... and I understand why for some, the extra bit of money from rich to the poor Obama offers and that health care is some freedom
But it's not freedom,
Capitalism, (restrained for the ultra wealthy perhaps and in fairness) + the digital age = work from the Beach at the hours of your choosing.
Industrial era socialism no matter how I look at it equals
Having a Job
and that just translates to remaining a serf as I see it
So I have no good reason for McCain
I would like Ron Paul but also know it's a pipe dream
But I find Obama frightening for my future
