First 2015 Democrat Presidential Debate


Last night I sat and suffered through a cacophony of ludicrous rhetoric. The entire program can be summed up as:

"Blah...    Blah...    Blah..."


a harsh, discordant mixture of sounds.

so foolish, unreasonable, or out of place as to be amusing; ridiculous.

1. the art of effective or persuasive speaking or writing, especially the use of figures of speech and other compositional techniques.
2. language designed to have a persuasive or impressive effect on its audience, but often regarded as lacking in sincerity or meaningful content.

The viewers of last night's introduction to the Socialist Agenda would be well advised to read 1984.

Nineteen Eighty-Four, often published as 1984, is a dystopian novel by English author George Orwell published in 1949. The novel is set in Airstrip One (formerly known as Great Britain), a province of the superstate Oceania in a world of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance and public manipulation, dictated by a political system euphemistically named English Socialism (or Ingsoc in the government's invented language, Newspeak) under the control of a privileged Inner Party elite, that persecutes individualism and independent thinking as "thoughtcrime", also a Newspeak word.

Acceptance of socialism (or Bernie Sanders' Democratic Socialism) in the United States is a step closer to the reality of the hopeless horror depicted in 1984.

In November 2011, the United States government argued before the US Supreme Court that it wants to continue utilizing GPS tracking of individuals without first seeking a warrant. In response, Justice Stephen Breyer questioned what this means for a democratic society by referencing Nineteen Eighty-Four. Justice Breyer asked, "If you win this case, then there is nothing to prevent the police or the government from monitoring 24 hours a day the public movement of every citizen of the United States.

Except for POWER at the top -
which is never, NEVER shared.

Former students who read 1984 in school may want to reread the book after having experienced a few years of reality.
