RINO Watch List: Jesse Hathaway


Jesse Hathaway is a victim of "the progressive re-education camps of Ohio University and the People’s Republik of Athens." Since he completed his degree, probably in "Queer Theory," this brainwashed former O-H-I-O student has become a bonofied left-wing pro-sodomy activist, who for some reason thinks he's a conservative.

In an article entitled "Teh Ghey" Jesse outs himself on David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog as the moral equivalent of a true-blue dues paying Radical Faerie. In a few decades he'll be found under the big Alex Knepper tent, no doubt.

In case you're interested, aside from long walks on beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC this homosexualist also enjoys "getting curious and poking his nose where it doesn't belong", and long winded fallacies. He especially loves the following appeal-to-ridicule, in response to hearing that seven conservative groups have exercised their God-given libereties to pull out of the David Keene, Grover Norquist and Lisa De Pasquale event that many are now referring to as FudgePAC 2011, (here's why) formerly referred to as the Conservative Political Action Conference:

"...some leading social conservatives were afraid that they would catch the virulent and deadly virus called “Teh Ghey,” if they were seen in public with conservative people who were sexually attracted to members of the same sex."

This quote needs no response, as it is absolutely hilarious. Mr. Hathaway is also fond of thought terminating cliche's:

"I’m a bit fuzzy on why it matters what a person does in the privacy of his or her bedroom, as long as it doesn’t affect me, and is legal."

I could go on and on with the fallacies, but hey I'll dive in here, onto this rhetorical question (he wishes) since it looks nice and soft to me. Secret vices have a way of not staying secret, Mr. Hathaway, especially when they result in big public consequences that provide perfectly intelligible reasons for legal proscription, or, short of that, non-legally coercive public efforts to discourage them.

Public Consequence Number 1: $20,500,000,000 per year in government spending on HIV.

Is that expensive enough for you to declare sodomy a public issue Mr. Hathaway? If not then what would be? A trillion dollars? The federal budget request for fiscal year 2011 includes a total of $20.5 billion for domestic HIV and AIDS, a 5% increase from the FY 2010 funding, which totaled $19.4 billion.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association approximately three out of four American AIDS patients have been males who have chosen to participate in the homosexual lifestyle and every single incedent could have been prevented. Talk about one man's personal irresponsibility effecting others. I don't think there is a better example! I haven't even gotten into the devestation they cause their own mothers and family members when they have to come clean and announce that they have contracted a mortal disease like HIV. The heartbreak must be unreal and drawn out over years. I don't even want to think about it, it's so sad.

Domestic federal funding for AIDS programs falls into four basic categories: care and treatment, financial and housing assistance, prevention, and research. Of these four budgets, care spending is by far the largest - just over half of the FY 2010 budget request is for care and treatment programs. The majority of AIDS care funding goes out through the federal Medicare and Medicaid programs for people who do not have adequate private health insurance.

Now, that is just for HIV. Imagine the public costs associated with treating the psychological and other physical diseases associated with the homosexual lifestyle. The health consequences associated with sodomy are rediculous. Here are a few more stats from the Journal of the American Medical Association for you to peruse good sir. Compared to other men, males who engage in same-sex conduct are:

727 percent more likely to have suffered bipolar disorders at some point in their lives, and 502 percent more likely in the last twelve months.

718 percent more likely to have suffered obsessive-compulsive disorder in the last twelve months, and 620 percent more likely at some point in their lives.

632 percent more likely to have suffered agoraphobia (fear of leaving home or being in public) in the last twelve months, and 454 percent more likely at some point in their lives.

421 percent more likely to have suffered panic disorder, and 229 percent more likely to have suffered social phobia at some point in their lives.

375 percent more likely to have suffered simple phobia in the last twelve months, and 361 percent more likely at some point in their lives.

311 percent more likely to have suffered mood disorders at some point in their lives, and 293 percent more likely in the last twelve months.

261 percent more likely to have suffered anxiety disorders in the last twelve months, and 267 percent more likely over the course of their lifetimes.

270 percent more likely to have suffered two or more psychiatric disorders during their lifetime.

235 percent more likely to have suffered major depression at some point in their lives.

Compared to other women, females who engage in same-sex conduct are:

405 percent more likely to have suffered a substance use disorder.

241 percent more likely to have suffered mood disorders during their lifetimes.

209 percent more likely to have suffered two or more mental disorders during their lifetimes.

etc. etc. etc.

The list of diseases found with extraordinary frequency among male homosexual practitioners as a result of anal sex include: anal cancer, chlamydia trachomatis, cryptosporidium, giardia lablia, herpes simplex virus, HIV, HPV, isospora belli, microsporidia, gonorrhea, viral hepatitis types B and C, syphilis, Gay Bowel Syndrome and other sexually transmitted gastrointestinal syndromes.
Lesbians are also at increased risk for certain diseases, including HIV, cancer, hepatitis C, and bacteria vaginosis, predominantly because they are “significantly more likely to report past sexual contact with a homosexual or bisexual man and sexual contact with an IDU (intravenous drug user). The average "lesbian" has more male sex partners in her lifetime than does the average straight woman.

With the prevalence of disease—both physical and mental—among those who engage in sodomy, it should come as no surprise that the supposedly inconsequential private vice called sodomy carries with it a long laundry list of very real public consequences, that effect you, me, and our wallets too.

There you have it Jesse. I hope that answers your question about some of the public consequences of private vice. Be sure to tune in tomorrow when I take another liberal posing as a conservative to task.

RINO Watch List: Lisa DePasquale


Recently Lisa De Pasquale, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Director for the American Conservative Union has been lobbying to bring the pro-sodomy advocacy organization "GOProud" to the CPAC, one of several large conservative gatherings that take place in Washington D.C. each year.

Lisa De Pasquale's decision is highly controversial, leaving many questioning whether she should continue at ACU as CPAC Director.

Joe Cox, the Director of Online Relations for the Young Conservatives of California had this to say:

"Homosexuality is not something most Americans are comfortable discussing, let alone promoting. So why is Lisa De Pasquale hijacking the Conservative Political Action Conference in an effort to use its name as a public relations tool for the gay agenda?"

It seems that Mr. Cox is correct. According to recent online polling more Americans than ever support a Federal Constitutional Amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman. This strong public showing of support for traditional marriage and morality stands in sharp contrast to the legal opinions of several activist Judges, including most recently Judge Vaughn Walker, who attempted to subvert California's recent marriage amendment known as Proposition 8.

With such strong general support for marriage and rising support for the sanctity of life in the abortion debate, many are wondering why Lisa De Pasquale is pushing social conservatives away from CPAC. It just doesn't make sense.

Recently seven social/fiscal conservative non-profits pulled out of CPAC in response to Pasquale's controversial decision, including the Family Research Council, which puts on the massive Family Values Voters Summit in Washington each year.

Other organizations that pulled out of CPAC include The Concerned Women for America, The National Organization for Marriage, the American Principles Project, American Values, the Center for Military Readiness, and Liberty Council.

On December 29th Brent Bozell, the nephew of Bill Buckley Jr and chairman of the Media Research Center indicated that MRC may not attend the CPAC either this year.

Alberto Arellano, a College Republican from UC Riverside wonders if Lisa De Pasquale is actually doing more harm than good for conservative efforts to restore public support.

"Lisa De Pasquale is trying to foist the homosexual agenda upon the conservative movement and a lot of us don't like it. We conservatives are the ones least likley to tolerate the immoral homosexual lifestyle, let alone promote it. This is rediculous" stated Arellano. "Why is she doing this?" he asks.

Many conservatives, including Arellano and Cox are hoping that Miss De Pasquale will change her mind or else step down as the CPAC Director at the American Conservative Union.

"Miss De Pasquale is not representing the principles of social conservatives, and social conservatives make up a major wing of the conservative movement. So I don't think she should be in charge of a conference that is meant to represent all conservatives, like CPAC does."

The “GOProud” Agenda

Andrew Breitbart, GOProud Board Member


Recently a group of radical pro-“gay” activists, Christopher Barron, Jimmy LeSalvia, and Bruce Carroll put together a small card board box organization designed to make headlines and headway. The organization is called GOProud, and its leaders are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to conjure up the illusion that the American right, has gone left, on social issues. The organization’s mission:

"We are a gay organization, we only work on gay issues, we have never claimed otherwise. My God people."

The aforementioned tweet was posted at 4:04 p.m. on Aug. 4, by Christopher Barron -the organizations founder. GOProud claims to be “conservative,” but Barron’s primary-venture, CapSouth Consulting provides services almost exclusively to “centrist” organizations such as the Log Cabin Republicans and the Republicans Who Care Individual Fund – a 527 seeking to elect centrist’s to the House and Senate. The GOProud webpage states that the organization is committed to a “traditional conservative agenda,” but the very nature of the group, its questionable ties and short track record strongly suggests otherwise.

Since its inception GOProud has repeatedly attacked conservatives and TEA Party icons like Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, and Mike Pence for supporting marriage and apposing their radical “GOProud” agenda. They attacked numerous TEA Party candidates during the 2010 campaign season. They even attacked long-standing conservative not-for-profit organizations like Americans for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property and the conservative youth group Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), founded by William F. Buckley Jr., the oldest and most respected group of its kind.

Despite GOProud’s self-avowed conservatism, many are beginning to wonder whether the organization should be considered “conservative” at all, arguing that GOProud has repeatedly put its own radical “gay” agenda first, and economics, party unity and “tradition” second. This some argue, marks a stark difference between GOProud and most other conservative organizations.

Traditionally, conservative not-for-profit organizations consider themselves conservative only when their core principles coincide with that of the general conservative movement. If the primary issue of an organization is at odds with conservatism, it would be odd for that organization to refer to itself as “conservative,” strictly speaking, but this is exactly what is happening with GOProud. Why?

The answer seems obvious. Christopher Barron, Jimmy LeSalvia, and Bruce Carroll are trying to co-opt the conservative movement. They want to use the movement to normalize homosexuality, nothing more. More specifically, they want to use the “free-market” as a vehicle to promote their radical agenda and to divide and conquer their opposition. If these activists do lobby for less taxes, less government, etc. they will do it with one aim in mind: to build support for the homosexual lifestyle among conservatives and disunity between social and fiscal members of the movement. This will be evident by the way they take credit for their work. This principle is implicit in the very name of their organization, which reeks of homosexuality. If they befriend conservatives they will befriend them to reduce right-wing opposition or to build support for the homosexual lifestyle.

Grover Norquist, the crypto-Islamist and founder of “American’s for Tax Reform” used the same tactic to promote radical Islam when he founded the Islamic “Free-Market” Institute. Norquist obtained the funds for his ostensibly conservative “Institute” from Abdurahman Alamoudi, a Muslim radical serving a 22 year Federal Prison sentence for funding terrorists, including Al Qaeda. Interestingly, Grover Norquist recently joined the Board of GOProud.

If GOProud truly was an organization full of nothing-but harmless fiscal conservatives who just happened to participate in the homosexual lifestyle, then why would the organization feel the absolute need to advertise the fact that they lead a homosexual lifestyle in all they do? Homosexuality is not a conservative issue. Check it at the door. Why do these activists define themselves by their sexual acts rather than their fiscal positions? Neither the title nor the track record of GOProud seem “conservative” to me. Russell Kirk, the man who gave the modern American conservative movement its name, referred to men of unprincipled talents such as these as, “sophists and calculators,” even “Jacobins!”

Normalizing the homosexual lifestyle never was or will be a conservative issue. Conservative principles all align against homosexuality. In the words of the founder, “The conservative believes in an enduring moral order, that human nature is fixed, in continuity, and that prescription and prudence are the best methods by which to reconcile permanence and change in a vigorous society.”

These principles all level the notion that there could be a conservative homosexual organization. GOProud is a fiction, a lie, designed to manipulate public sentiment, nothing more. It is the duty of every true conservative to stand up against this heresy here and now, to pinch the wick before this burning energy has time to find the winds of the radical left and together their conflagration becomes the bonfire of true conservatism, Christianity and the natural family.

Stephanie Mencimer: Anti-Christian/Pro-Sodomy Activist Welcome at Mother Jones?


Recently I came across a little-read Mother Jones article about my speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) last Febuary. During my speech I condemned the organizers of CPAC (Re: Lisa De Pasquale and David Keene) for allowing an anti-Christian/pro-sodomy organization called "GOProud" to attend despite the fact that they are not conservative. The organization is led by Grover Norquist of American's for Tax Reform and Jimmy LeSalvia.

The Mother Jones hit piece posing as an article is insolent and cheeky. Written by journo-activist Stephanie Mencimer, the article begins with a misquote:

"He (Ryan Sorba) made some incoherrant comments about how civil rights -is- grounded in natural rights."

Here, Miss Mencimer trades my "are" for an "is" in a feeble attempt to make my statement read as though it were "incoherrant." But Mencimer's typo aside, was my statement "incoherrant?" Really?

First of all, civil rights are grounded in natural rights. If you don't believe me, just ask Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He'll tell it to you in black and white script in his Letter from a Bermingham Jail. Dr. King writes that:

"An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law..."

There you have it, Miss Mencimer. Now, allow me to repeat what I said and set the record straight (no pun intended).

"Civil rights are grounded in natural rights. Natural rights are grounded in human nature. Human nature is a rational substance in relationship. The intelligible (aka rational) end of the reproductive act is reproduction..." The secondary end of the reproductive act is spousal unity in the interest of the twenty year process of education required by the child produced. Together, reproduction and unity in the interest of education comrise the essence of marriage.
Advocates of the GOProud Agenda would have us base the essence of marriage on "mutual affection and commitment." This may sound good at first but basing marriage on affection and commitment would allow anyone to marry! Just think, if grandpa and grandson share affection and commitment they could be married! So could brother and sister. Based on the "gay" version of the essence of marriage one thousand people could be married, provided that they all share mutual affection and commitment to each other and there is no principle in the left-wing version of the essence of marriage that would allow us to reasonably restrict it. This is rediculous on its face. Shame on Mother Jones, GOProud, and the euphemistically titled grandaddy of em all, the "Human 'Rights' Campaign" for promoting such intellectual non-sense. You all get an "F" in logic, as far as I'm concerned.

This, Miss Mencimore, is not "incoherrant." Your article for Mother Jones is third-grade, "incoherrant," and to be honest, offensive. Please refrain from using chicanary and lies in your next piece. It doesn't look good on you. Please also send Mother Jones herself the following personal message for me, will you?


Dear Mother Jones,

Enough with the pop up ads already! Rediculous.

All the best,

Ryan

Truth Academy: A Huge Success!

August 5 -7 Pete LeBarbera's American's for Truth hosted the inaugural Truth Academy. The conference was a huge success. There were over one hundred attendees over the course of the weekend.


Speakers included Sandy Rios, former President of the Concerned for America, Robert Knight of Coral Ridge Ministries, Matt Barber and Rena Lindevaldsen of Liberty University's not-for-profit law firm Liberty Council, Cliff Kinkaid from Accuracy in Media, Ryan Sorba, Chairman of the California Young American's for Freedom, Professor Rob Gagnon, Greg Quinlan -an ex-"gay" and director of PFOX. Arthur Goldberg and Luarie Higgins were also in attendence.
The information exchanged at the event was invaluable. Cliff Kinkaid's presentations were particularly relevent to the current Don't Ask Don't Tell debate. Cliff noted that men who have sex with men are currently forbidden from giving blood, do to astronomically high rates of sexually transmitted disease infections. In the military, soldiers are expected to be ready to give blood in emergency situations for their fellow soldiers. If a fellow soldier regularly engages in sodomy however, he may infect his fellow soldier in need.

Ryan Sorba added to Cliff's case by noting that many psychiatrists and psychologists in the American Psychiatric Association understand "Homosexuality" to be psychologically disordered. "The debate is still raging in the APA," Sorba said. If "Homosexuality" is a psychological disorder it may be grounds for denial of service.


Matt Barber added that males and females are rightfully segregated in sleeping quarters due to their sexuality. If males and females are seperated then should't the "gay" males be seperated as well, epsecially when showering.

Overall, the weekend was a huge success. There is already interest in a Truth Academy in Oklahoma as well as Ohio. The Academy is meant to teach young people and other pro-family Americans how to effectively counter the propaganda of the modern pro-sodomy movement.

Bob Shwartz and Homosexual Hate Group Gay Liberation Network to Protest Truth Academy


The anti-Christian and neo-pagan pro-sodomy hate group, "Gay Liberation Network" (GLN) — whose co-leader Bob Schwartz celebrated the University of Illinois’ recent firing of Catholic professor Kenneth Howell for his Natural Law defense of marriage– has announced that it will protest the AFTAH Truth Academy, which will be held Aug. 5-7 at the Christian Liberty Academy in Arlington Heights, Illinois.

GLN is a Marxist-oriented street protest group that attempts to equate Judeo-Christian opposition to homosexuality and capitalism with “hate” — and which uses its protests to intimidate businesses from hosting pro-family events. For its extreme anti–Christian and anti-capitalist bigotry and hateful rhetoric — including vicious ad hominem attacks against the family (e.g., calling pro-family missionary Peter LaBarbera “Satan’s Lover”) – GLN has been declared a hate organization.

GLN, formerly the Chicago Anti-Bashing Network, once smeared the historic Moody Church in Chicago as a “House of Hate” because Moody’s revered pastor, Erwin Lutzer, wrote a book critical of “same-sex marriage.”
GLN has repeatedly pilloried Chicago’s Catholic leaker Cardinal Francis George with a similar accusations because George defends Catholic teachings on sex and marriage.
Beyond that, Schwartz once told LaBarbera — who was protesting a “gay youth” rally in downtown Chicago as then-executive director of Illinois Family Institute – that if it weren’t for the police standing nearby, he would push him into the busy street. (Schwartz has never denied making this comment after it was reported by IFI.) What hatred Bob Schwartz has in his heart for Christian's who only seek to help folks overcome self-destructive sexual addictions.

LaBarbera maintains that had such a veiled violent threat been made against a homosexual by a conservative or Christian, it could have been the basis for a criminal charge under Chicago’s "hate crime" law.

Here is an excerpt of GLN’s ludicrous attempt to distort the Truth Academny’s true purpose:
Teaching young people to revere biblical teachings on marriage and God’s natural design for the family — and how to answer GLBT misinformation in the public square – is a public good.
However, GLN’s vicious name-calling and ugly smears of conservatives and pro-family libertarians as “haters” — and its regular lies about religious leaders who oppose homosexual practice – is a form of neo-Nero-ean, anti-Christian bigotry. This kind of radical intolerance by extreme sexoholics and homosexual activists must be resisted at every turn by all pro-family Americans!

David Horowitz Dumps Alex Knepper from NewsReal


Today, July 8, 2010 another anti-Christian homosexual man, Alex Knepper came out of the closet as a pro-pederasty activist.

Knepper previously identified himself as a "conservative" and wrote for David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog.

After learning of Knepper's advocacy for pederasty Horowitz promptly removed him as a contributor.

Alex Knepper published an article about me online a few months back on Andrew Sullivan's blog. Andrew Sullivan it should be noted is also a sexual deviant -his life revolves around making public the fact that he engages in sodomy with other males. Due to his deviant lifestyle, sadly, he has been infected with HIV.

In the article Knepper published he inacurately recalls a brief argument I had with him for a few minutes at CPAC 2010.

The argument was about marriage. Knepper claimed that the essence of marriage consists in "shared values" and "mutual mcommitment." Under this definition however, marriage could mean almost anything. A grandmother and grandson could marry under this definition, for example. There is no principle to deny it, logically. The essence of marriage is reproduction and unity in the interest of raising children. Love, mutual help, and sexuality are secondary.

I tried illustrating these simple deductions to Knepper, but he wouldn't listen. His addiction to the chemicals released by his brain from sexual stimulation wouldn't allow him to think like a human being.

Instead he reacted like a meat puppet, controlled by strings pulled by chemical reactions in his brain -he told the nice girl I was walking with to engage in a public sex act.

Alex Knepper, a student from American University, should be known online for who he is -which is why I am writing this post. Hopefully potential future victims (organizations he submits his resume to) google his name, read this, and avoid the same mistake David Horowitz made.

In case you still have doubts about him, he recently confirmed his status as a creep obsessed with wierd and perverted sex acts when he told a reporter the following:

"For my pro-sex views, I am variously called a misogynist, a rape apologist and -- my personal favorite -- a "pro-date rape protofascist."

I don't know how Knepper slipped through the cracks at NewsReal. Perhaps it is because the website's Editor David Swindle is a pro-sodomy activist himself, obviously lacking in discernmet.

Alex Knepper is not the only left-wing hack blogging at NewsReal, however. Ryan Mauro, David Swindle, and Jesse Hathaway are also deviants, albeit to a lesser degree. While these do not advocate for pederasty they do advocate for same-sex sodomy and rail against both Christian morality and public recognition for the natural supremacy of civilized marital-based sexuality.

Hopefully NewsReal Editor-in-Chief David Horowitz will come to his senses soon and remove these deviants from NewsReal. I left a message with his office today, but have not recieved a call back.

I'll try again tomorrow.

Mariana Van Zeller: Journalist or Activist?

















Mariana Von Zeller recently composed a hit piece dressed up as a documentary about anti-sodomy laws in Uganda. She used the piece to attack pro-family Christian Pastor Scott Lively PhD, JD, ThD. Dr. Lively writes the following:

"Friends, burn me once, shame on you, burn me twice, shame on me. Well, shame on me for taking another liberal "journalist" at her word to accurately represent me in an interview."

Pro-sodomy activist Mariana van Zeller's recently released propaganda film is actually designed to demonize Christians and glorify sodomy.

?The film, is deceptive to its core and is falsely titled, "The American Architects of Uganda's Anti-Gay Bill" writes Joseph Cox - pro-family activist from California's Central Valley.

Going forward, young conservatives must find a way to actively expose and differentiate between real journalists, in search of the truth and activists only interested in demonizing their political opponanants.

If you are looking for the facts about Dr. Lively's work in Uganda please visit DefendtheFamily.com and look under the title "Uganda." There are about 20 stories going back to about 2003 which show the growing problem of pro-sodomy activism in that country.

You may also download Scott's new book, Redeeming the Rainbow: A Christian Response to the "Gay" Agenda free -the source of all of Scott's comments and teachings in Uganda.

The Thesis of Capitalism by Ryan Sorba

Over the course of the last century, the government of the United States has been progressively abandoning the road of economic freedom, without which, personal and political freedom, have never existed in the past.

Though we have been warned by some of the greatest political thinkers of the 19th century, like De Tocqueville and Lord Acton, that socialism means slavery, and that the, "free market is the only mechanism that has ever been discovered for achieving participatory democracy," our President and Congress have failed to understand and to take this fact, upon which our liberty stands, into account.

A few months ago, the federal government owned or controlled businesses that generate about one-third of all U.S. economic activity…numerous banks, the largest insurance company in the United States—A.I.G., Freddie Mac and Fannie May. Today the Federal Government owns over 50 percent of all home mortgages and the entire direct student loan industry. They control General Motors.

Now, with the passage of the health care bill, which makes up about 18 percent of the total U.S. economy, the government’s total involvement in the private sector is more than 50 percent.

How gradually, and by almost imperceptible steps have we been desensitized to the process by which the government is seizing control of our lives? The water is boiling, and yet we, the frogs, are still unwilling to leap, and what, at every stage of this process has appeared to us a mere difference of degree has now in its cumulative effect brought about a substantial transformation in our national spirit.

This transformation is highlighted starkly by the indifferent attitude of so many today regarding government control. Many of our fellow Americans are now eager to exchange their own liberty for a government hand out, because they have never experienced what it is really like to be the successful master of their own destiny. How could they have? Government intrusion makes it so difficult and complex to be successful in business these days that it takes a practical entrepreneurial superman to hurdle their many road blocks and for a lifetime.

Nevertheless, the change that has occurred in those willing to trade their liberty for a handout amounts to a complete reversal and entire abandonment of the do-it-yourself tradition which has over the centuries led to the independence and even dominance of Western Civilization.

A specter is haunting the United States...the specter of socialism, the chief enemy of liberty in the world today.

The chief defender of liberty in the world today…is called representative democracy, properly defined.

As noted by Austrian economist F.A. Hayek, "Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom. Socialism restricts it. Democracy attaches all possible value to each man. Socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number." Democracy and socialism have nothing in common…except two words: equality and freedom.

But notice the differences!

While democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in servitude. The error of the socialist lays not in the fact that he values equality, but rather that he misunderstands it. He thinks socialistic equality will bring about a “new kind of freedom.” He thinks this because his predecessors have succeeded in subtly changing the meaning of the word, freedom. They did it because they know man’s craving for freedom, is the strongest of all his political motives. But the socialists “freedom” is a false prophet. A wolf, in sheep’s clothing.

To all the great apostles of true political freedom, the word has always meant freedom from coercion, freedom from the arbitrary power of other men, release from the ties that leave a man no choice but obedience to the orders of a superior to whom he was legally attached. The socialist’s freedom, however, in the words of Hayek, "was to be a 'freedom from necessity,' release from the compulsion of the circumstances which inevitably limit the range of choice for all of us. Freedom in this sense, of course, is merely another name for 'power,' or 'wealth.' The socialist confuses 'freedom' with 'power,' he confuses liberty for the 'effective power to do specific things.'” Today, there can be no doubt that the promise of greater freedom has become one of the most effective weapons of socialist propaganda, but the height of the tragedy lies in the fact that government programs mean a retreat from freedom, to a coercive organization of affairs, to collectivism, and a coercive classless society. Though the socialist promises himself a more abundant life, in practice he becomes a slave……and, indeed……right now we are seeing a new form of slavery, rising, gradually, and by almost imperceptible steps, before our very eyes.

What then, is our course?

Must liberty parish?

Is this how freedom dies, withering away, in a quiet, deadening accommodation with the weeds of totalitarian evil?

This great nation asks for action, and action now. Action is imperative if America is to survive as a free nation. F.A. Hayek once remarked that, “The battle for freedom must be won over and over again…” Pre-eminent conservative historian George H. Nash later added that, “each new struggle will be decided in the minds of the rising generation—and within that generation, substantially, by the minority who have the gift of reason, the groping, soon to be masters of society.”

From this perspective then, one path that leads to victory over socialism seems clear……and that path runs right through the hearts and minds of the rising generation…“The Reagan Generation!” those born roughly between 1976 and 1992.

Ronald Reagan defeated communism. Now it is up to “Reagan’s Children” to defeat communism’s ugly step son……socialism...

In the further words of Hayek, "The socialists in all parties……must now be either persuaded or defeated, if they and we are to remain free men."

If you are a member of the “Reagan Generation,” get active, and get extreme. Don't be afraid. Barry Goldwater once wrote that, “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice; and moderation in pursuit of justice…is no virtue.” In the words of Bill Buckley, “Stand athwart history,” all alone if you must, and in a room full of those who you may have once thought to be your closest allies, and yell, “Stop!” It is for their own good. Begin on your College Campus...and end in Congress. Push back the socialists and their allies wherever they exist, all the way there.

To some generations much is given. Of other generations, much is expected. The Reagan Generation has a rendezvous with destiny…and while our path is uncertain our final outcome has been made clear by history……

The fall of the Berlin Wall, the collapse of Communism behind the Iron Curtain, and the changing character of China, are each a testament to what our final outcome too…shall be. Socialism, like communism, is a failure. Capitalism, a success.

Did West and East Germany not provide us with an almost perfectly controlled scientific experiment? In the Middle East, Israel and Egypt offer the same contrast. These are but a few of the remarkable and dramatic confirmations of the, Thesis of Capitalism.

234 years ago our fathers, by way of revolution, brought forth upon this continent a new nation…conceived in liberty… in the revolutionary belief that our liberty comes not from the generosity of the state……but from the hands of God……We dare not forget that we are the heirs of that revolution. In the words of J.F.K., "We dare not witness or permit the slow undoing of that liberty, to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today."
