Open Letter To All 18 Year Olds

Unicorn

Congratulations on your arrival to the voter list, and congratulations to all who are graduating.  Some of you are heading into colleges and universities.  Some of you are hitting the streets to knock on doors in search of jobs.  Some of you already have hit those streets and have been successful, while others have  discovered undemanding solace in a particular corner of a parent’s couch.

Whatever your priorities and whatever your circumstance, remember this admonition, you are the first generation, since the founding of this great Nation, which will never retire.  Ever.  Oh, a very few of you will inherit some shrunk fortunes, which will keep declining in lock-step with the shrinking dollar, but most of you will have to make your own way with the tools you have appropriated.

You will spend a majority of your waking moments competing with millions of new arrivals for jobs in a shrinking job market.

You will live under the invasive cloud of the state, manipulated at federal, state and local levels by ideologically entrenched government bureaucracies.   You saw how the power of the IRS was used to attack those who did not support liberal socialist ideologues. If you consider yourselves open minded, how does this brazen assault on your rights correspond with your own common sense?  Are these the actions of a government which you feel comforted by?  Is this Administration designing a country which you believe will be conducive to your enjoyment of successful employment, or to a rewarding personal life?

Are you aware of the changes being implemented in your healthcare system?  Do you realize that you will not be able to find a family doctor for yourself or your loved ones?  When your time comes to need a doctor, you will discover that private practices will have become an institution of the past.  You will be required to consult GPs working out of clinics.  You will wait hours to be served, and when you require serious medical attention, such as an operation, you will wait, and you will wait.  You will not wait a month or two, but a year or two.  As you get older, and older, you will discover that even that mediocre level of service will slowly, but assuredly decline.  The system will not have enough funding to provide you with the medical care you think you have paid for and deserve.  Many decisions will be beyond your control, and your needs will be secondary to the priorities of the ’system’ and its financial viability.  Bureaucrats, doctors and surgeons, will make decisions on your behalf without your input.

You will eventually come to know that the lingering fear in your gut over the long delays for that critical operation, were well founded, and out of your hands.  You will find that many operations will be considered ‘elective’ even if they are critical to your wellbeing and long term health.  Remember that term. It will one day haunt you and will come to cost you.  The bureaucracy will make most of those decisions for you. But most of you don’t care about doctors and health concerns right now. Such are the concerns of  ‘old people.’  Still, in violation of the Constitution, this President has decreed that you are now forced to purchase health insurance.  Yes, ‘forced.’

Let’s look at what else has occurred while you were awaiting your consequential graduation to ‘voter.’

Your Nation’s Constitution has been highjacked and abused by an Administration which considers itself above the need to heed the Constitution’s most fundamental principles and tenets – the very principles the President swore to uphold.  You may have left primary school when America was a Constitutional Republic, but you are graduating as it is irreversibly being converted into a crony capitalist nation centrally controlled by a  despotic government.

Your Supreme Court has become a political vehicle used as a pandering legislative agency obligated to the Administration which positioned the justices.  For example, your Supreme Court judged the  Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as being Constitutional.  It decided that the government can force you to purchase insurance. How did it justify that?  It executed a logistical summersault and qualified the enforcement of a financial penalty as being a tax.  Penalty  =  Tax  =  Constitution?  You know, like “it depends on what the definition of is, is.” Just make it up as you go along. Who’s going to tell the Supremes they can’t?  No one, it seems.  But remember this:  Chief Justice John Roberts, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan don’t know what the meaning of “is,” is.   Justices Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas have understood perfectly.

Your Administration has disregarded the fundamental separation of powers, as it imposed its political ideology on the vast bureaucracy of the state. In its violation of the Constitution, the Administration has usurped your powers.  Only those with short memories will have forgotten that in January of 2012, the President trashed the Senate’s power of “advice and consent” as mandated by the Constitution when he made the unprecedented appointments of four commissions including three members to the National Labor Relations Board one to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).  Take a few minutes sometime to dig into what the CFPB digs into, then compile in your heads what you have learned of the bureaucratic overreach which this Administration has shown a propensity for, and surprise – just another intrusive organization invading your financial affairs. How great is that?  You may not care today, but wait a few years when you locate microscopes in places  you weren’t aware you had opened for encroachment.  Your grumbling will be audible, but it will be pointless against the obnoxious wave of deaf conceit flowing from Washington.

Your Nation is being transformed into an authoritarian socialist motherland.  Don’t look for the process to jump the track and ride onto the fictional collectivist utopia some of you have thought you’d inhale yourselves into.  You are stepping onto a train led by a dysfunctional egoistic cluster of self-loathing individuals who have little respect for any of you.  You will either be herded into the corral of sycophants, receiving handouts for your capitulation, or you will be locked out of the compound, hoping the wind sweeps crumbs your way for sustenance.

Fear has only been one of the effectively used motivators  in the conversion of your Nation. The transformation was not an accident – it has been willful.  Led by sanctimonious people convinced that they morally know better what is right for all others, these individuals are immersed in ideologies diametrically opposed to the original intentions of the Framers of your Constitution. All levels of your system of governance are being altered.   The process has not been subtle.

Legend of Zelda

While you were preoccupied with Legend of Zelda and distracted with the suitability of the name given to a Hollywood star’s new baby, your leaders in Washington made endless decisions rooted in fear.  For example, the fear of terrorists legitimized excessive invasion of your privacy.  The fear of global financial calamity justified and rationalized in panic, a massive borrowing to bail-out too-big-to-fail financial institutions and auto manufacturers which should never have been allowed to survive incompetence and fraud.

The amount of extravagant borrowing, orchestrated in your name, will become more meaningful to all of you as  that reality empties your wallets and bank accounts in the coming years.  Taxes were raised, and will continue to be raised by your leaders who know of no other method to raise money for their grand plans, their fantasies and their personal fortunes.   They have convinced a bare majority of your parents, and your grandparents, that the bigger the government, the better the government, and the more effectively it can take care of them.  Your parents and your grandparents watched submissively as their taxes rose, but you will be punished with a double whammy.  Your taxes will not only continue to rise, but you and your children are the generations which will also be responsible for that giant debt accumulated for the benefit of predecessors. That debt is a tax burden by a different name, and you will have no choice but to bear it.

You are an indentured generation. Like it or not, understand it or not, you are trapped in a lifelong vice of debt.  You are stepping out into a society which has long been convinced that ‘debt is good’.  It doesn’t know why it believes that, but since it’s been promulgated and recited so ardently for over half a century, the baffling refrain has saturated every pore of your world.

You will eventually come to familiarize yourselves with the significance of organizations such as The Federal Reserve, or the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland.  These organizations influence your wellbeing and the wellbeing of the Nation you thought was yours.  You do not control these organizations, you do not own them, and neither does your government.  Most of you have little knowledge of what they are, or what they do, and they, like to keep it that way.   The Federal Reserve is your Central Bank and is an offshore entity owned by a group of U.S. and European Banks, well, it’s not really yours, but it’s the organization which impacts your every waking moment. Central banks are not managed by practical individuals with any experience which can inspire their decisions.   They are economists immersed in theoretical concepts and abstractions from which they dictate the direction and tenor of your present and your future.

Do you recall growing up believing that cartels were illegal, and that Unicorns could heal the sick and purify water?  Do you remember feeling comforted by the thought that there were laws against oligopolistic environments and monopolistic practices?  Yes?  But you don’t wonder how or why all the large banks charge the same interest rates on loans?   No surprise, no one else does either. Sure, there are laws against price fixing, and it would be wonderful if there existed real competition in banking, but, well, but nothing.   The Bank for International Settlements, is where the heads of central banks go to decide your destiny.  They deserve somewhere to meet that is comfortably out of sight of boisterous crowds with prying eyes and placards, and of course, they occasionally need a clearing house, so the BIS is their bank.

As you grab hold of your life and step into your tomorrows, you might recall a few of these exhortations.  Since most of you like to think of  yourselves as being of sound mind, please accept that your government was never originally intended to trample your rights, at least as the Framers of the Constitution intended it, and astutely structured it.  Assess what personal freedom you have lost,  then assert your own lines in the sand beyond which you will not allow intrusion and oppression.  If you don’t, others will decide for you and you will find yourself trapped in an ideological corral, unable to breath the Freedom which might have been yours.

Take responsibility for your actions, particularly your mistakes, ignoring the example you have witnessed of the current President.  The acknowledgement will inform your own development and growth.  Ascribing blame onto others vacates your capacities to learn anything.

One more proposition:   Reject most of the concocted ‘wisdom’ you have been fed  and absorbed throughout your school years since Kindergarten. Spurn the fantasies.  As you make your way, heed your own common sense, and your own intuition.

About James Raider

A constituent of the vast baby boomer generation with a career which has been fortunate to know the ponderous corporate worlds, as well as the intimately pressurized, and invigorating entrepreneurial domains of high tech and venture capital, I have harvested my share of mistakes meandering through corridors of enterprise from Silicon Valley, to London and endless, colourful, sometimes praetorian points in between. The voyage has provided an abundance of fodder for a pen yielding to an inquisitive keyboard, a foraging mind, and a passionate spirit. Whether political or business or social or economic or personal, is it not all political? It is a privilege to write, and an even greater privilege to be read by anyone, and sometimes with the wind at my back the writing may occasionally be legible. I do not write to invite scorn, nor to invite respect, but if I get really lucky the writing can stimulate thinking. I also write for the very selfish purpose of animating my own processes, and engaging the best of what life offers. Above all, whether biting fire or swatting shadows, I am grateful to be gifted the freedom to write and publish whatever flows down to the keyboard. To all those who enabled this freedom, and to all those standing guard to preserve it, I am indebted.

    Great post, but I don’t think the intended recipient 18 year olds understand yet. When they do, if they ever do, it will be too late. I doubt the US will survive BHO.

    Thanks, Old Guy. Unfortunately, the real cave-in has been Congress, which has surrendered, as it has always done, for max self-service. Government expands. Taxes rise. Government expands.

    Gilbert K. Chesterton must have beheld a prescient view of Congress when, 80 years ago, he wrote, “The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected. ……. Each new blunder of the progressive or prig becomes instantly a legend of immemorial antiquity for the snob.”

    taxes in the USA are about 25% of the GNP this is lower than just about every other developed country. The share of owned wealth that the elites own continues to rise: the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. This is NOT because the poor are being taxed heavily.

    The best way would be a series of short videos that present’s the information in an easy to comprehend way and to post them on YouTube and FaceBook and that can also be presented as political commercials as well as a longer compilation. I can already conceive of a number ways to shoot them. I’m seriously considering writing some scripts and looking into it.

    Well, JR, so we are now picking on the munchkins. Oh! You cruel meany, don’t you realize these young people are still enthralled with the, “Yes We Can” and other meaningless blather. Dropping the twelve pound hammer of reality on impressionable minds will cloud their hopes for the future, it is far better to let them become disillusioned with life over time; so that one day when their hopes and dreams are dead, they can come to the realization that they never really had a chance, defeat and demoralization was an equivalency provided for them by Obama and his Crony Capitalists as they stole America’s wealth.

    Lol. It is entirely likely that the outcome you suggest will materialize. Half of them will not find work. However, with the lack of ability on the part of Republicans to overcome this Administration’s leadership into a new world of hate, racial division, suppression, fraud, and normalized lies, the 18 year olds will continue to blindly lay blame on conservatives. If they don’t grasp the root causes for their loss of Freedom, they’ll be led to revolt against conservatism. I suspect that their understanding of “Freedom” should be the first priority on the list of ‘knowledge’ conveyances.

    When Congress allows the Administration to ignore the Constitution, it’s not difficult to see why so many don’t pay attention to what is is, what it means, or why it should be important to them.

  12. 18 year olds – Just in case you missed this insult to your intelligence, . . .

    “Nobody has a monopoly on what is a very hard problem, but I don’t have much patience for anyone who denies that this challenge is real. (Applause.) We don’t have time for a meeting of the Flat Earth Society. (Applause.) Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it’s not going to protect you from the coming storm. And ultimately, we will be judged as a people, and as a society, and as a country on where we go from here.”

    • Who could possibly have uttered such demeaning, disparaging remarks while visiting foreign soil?
    • Who could demonstrate such arrogance and superiority believing his own press?
    • Who could believe that this is the best approach to winning over disbelievers?
    • Who could make such inssessent use of the word “I”?
    • Who could possibly embarrass his own Nation so effectively while on foreign soil and not be aware?
    • Who could so directly and publicly insult anyone who disagrees with the propaganda he has swallowed?
    • Who could possibly place you in the category of ‘superstitious idiot‘ is you are a dissenter?
    • Who could possibly insult the vast majority of geoscientists and engineers who disagree with him on man-made (anthropogenic) global warming?

    Yup, that’s right, . . . the very same person who’s making sure you forever remain subservient and totally dependent on your government.

    Note: Who’s applauding him from the sidelines? None other than the second most effective hypocrite Al Gore who couldn’t help himself, “the best address on climate by any president ever,”

    The Oval Office is inhabitted by a man who believes himself clever. The cluster behind him in the W.H. keeps affirming his notion. In time most of his followers will discerned the reality. Well, some will.

    @Skookum:

    I’m actually quite serious. My background is in military spacecraft command and control systems, Technician-Operator with vast training in high-tech systems troubleshooting. I have decades of theatrical and performance experience, onstage and in all support positions. I have gone back to college to study Film and Broadcast Production, and have created a few “amateur-student” films. Myobbies include sketch comedy writing and performing, Improvisational comedy (2nd City trained & others such classes,) I have written numerous children’s theater plays that have been produced locally. I’ve also performed on local television and radio programs.

    I have also been collecting old format video studio equipment with the intent of creating a web-casting studio. I’ve custom built a server based computer to use for video editing and DVD/Blueray production. I’m not quite to the stage of opening a full sound-stage (lacking the funding and requisite real estate,) however, I am now at the point of hooking everything up preparatory to starting my own independent film and editing company. I’ll have to work out of my home until I can start generating enough cash and notoriety to go expand. I’ve been planning on using all this to create entertainment media supporting a founding father’s Constitutional & patriotic point of view. Starting small, and who knows after that.

    I certainly would consider having like-minded people on board to collaborate. I am loath to post my personal email on FA, but if there is some way that we could get Curt to help us communicate off Flopping Aces, that might work out best.

    “we do have the highest corporate tax rate in the world”

    It is high time Congress acted on an overhaul of the personal and corporate taxation system to unwind its intricacy. That would require more resolve and perspicacity than is evidently present in Washington – the amnesty bill is ample evidence.

    John isn’t about to be convinced of anything – his misrepresentations and lack of familiarity with things like GDP, is evidence enough that somewhere, somehow he joined the crowd for whom talking points from the deluded Teleprompter are sufficient. They look forward with excited anticipation to that day when government constitutes the vast majority of the Nation’s GDP, if not 100% of it.

    As you know, a principal source of decent paying jobs for the past few years has been the government. And rest assured that they’re all grateful to you for paying your taxes, although what might be surprising is the political affiliation, or vote ‘pledging’ which those jobs came with.

    @James Raider:

    We could develop such a FA “conservative thinking tank” thread. Soundbites certainly have their uses, but to reach the short attention span young adult audience of today, you have to get their attention quick and keep it with a strong visual message. Action and humor are both great ways to reach them, but the content has to hit home. Remembering that this particular audience already thinks they know everything, it is necessary to break through this youthful arrogance with harsh reality and without any hint of elder/parental, “older but wiser” patronization or a nagging “we’re trying to get through to you” attitude.

    If it’s anything like a Carl Rove “Crossroads” commercial, they will just tune it out, because you aren’t talking to them.

    @rockybutte: This is Liberal Double Speak for: Don’t Be Obstinate Do It Our Way. Well, what are you worried about, the RINOs are selling us out and you are getting what you want. Perhaps you, like many of our Obama Republicans, have noticed a slight problem: the rank and file of the GOP, many Independents, and more than a few Democrats are not content with a manure sandwich served cold.

    The prospects of a third party, representing the concerns of the middle class becomes a distinct possibility with each passing day. Many Democrats are becoming disillusioned with Socialist ideology over the welfare of Americans and the economy. It goes without saying that many Republicans are fed up with RINOs who want to feed at the Obama Trough of Crony Capitalism. The Socialists may continue their destruction of our culture, border, and economy, but a day of reckoning is just beyond the horizon, and may the Socialists and Obama Republicans feel the awesome weight of the iron heel of public discontent sooner than later.

    What a compelling observation, as usual, MsBees, and leave it to you to convert it into a compliment. Thanks for the kind words, . . . . and, . . . I wish.

    Blogging provides a wide boulevard for egos to unfurl ideas, whatever motivation arouses those thoughts or stirs the writer. Language, with all of its ambiguities, is as complex a creation as man has ever attempted, and speaks to the existence and power of our consciousness. It is a beautiful and mysterious subset of that consciousness, and also evidences, IMHO, of the vast difference between ourselves and all other animals. Even isolated tribes we might consider primitive, have very evolved languages. The magic of language has stimulated thinking, and stimulated thinking about thinking.

    Personally I enjoy exploring different perspectives wherever possible, and my own ego finds challenge in abstaining from the mundane. I don’t often succeed and usually screw things up, executing too many awkward cartwheels, but damn, it’s fun trying.

    When this Admin can’t game Congress, it games the system through Executive Orders such as its commitment this week to Africa, directing cash to pet projects which will support the Admin’s very self-serving long term plans, or support Agenda 21 on the sly. It’s so easy to spend other people’s money – particularly when you’ve never earned any through hard work, but leached off the taxpayer from the get-go.

    And of course, there is a reason someone receives a Nobel Prize from a bunch of presumptuous globalists for having done NOTHING. THAT one was as disconcerting in its meaning as any event of the past 5 years.

    18 year olds,
    Know narcissism. Recognize it.

    Here is a rewarding piece with educational pickings from the éminence grise – Jarrett the puppet master dominating the White House and which is ruling ruining the Nation.

    “The magic of Valerie is her intellect and her heart. She is an incredibly kind, caring and thoughtful person with a unique ability to pinpoint the voiceless and shine a light on them and the issues they and the President care about with the ultimate goal of making a difference in people’s lives.

    “Valerie is the perfect combination of smart, savvy and innovative. [...]

    “Valerie is someone here who other people inside the building know they can trust. (need examples.)”

    This letter of talking points for the W.H. staff is intended to reinforce reverence and worship.

    Are you sure you want to continue your genuflecting?
