Towards the closing days of the election, then Senator and now President Elect Obama made a statement and used the term ‘redistribution wealth’. This terrified some of my more conservative friends who began talking about him as a ‘dangerous socialist’. Some of the more extreme opinions I’ve heard even warned that his victory would result in the ‘United Socialist States of America’. And, while I don’t pay too close attention to punditry, I was relieved that they didn’t similarly grab hold of this.

But, hold on here. Socialism? Redistribution of Wealth? Call me crazy, but didn’t our current (and fervently free market) President just shove Congress into supporting a 700 billion dollar redistribution of wealth? Sure, I heard a lot of people complain, but why didn’t anyone call him a Socialist? Obama and McCain both voted for it twice, so why is Obama maligned as the Socialist, by himself?

Well, America. I have a little wake up call for you. We aren’t capitalists. We love to say we are, and when times are good and we’re rolling in the green we’d sooner cut our toes off than consider regulating industry. But you know what? When things get hard and it’s time for us to take our lumps, we charge it to our American (Tax-Payer) Express. We’re only capitalists until capitalism is inconvenient. Do you know who, in a strict capitalist sense, is too big and important to fail? NO ONE. The threat of failure is what is supposed to regulate the market and prevent people who take dangerous risks from polluting the rest of the market. America has taken the teeth out of capitalism, we’ve rejected socialism out of hand, and then sit around wondering why isn’t working right.

Minnesota House District 12B is so tight it I almost can’t breath. Tracking WCCO.

And that’s an order.

If you’re keen on following voting results in Minnesota, WCCO News is supposed to be featuring a map that shows the returns.  The feature doesn’t seem to be appearing at this time, but check this page tomorrow to see if it shows up.

“I look forward to a future in which our country will match its military strength with our moral restraint, its wealth with our wisdom, its power with our purpose”— John F. Kennedy


The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie–deliberate, contrived and dishonest–but the myth–persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.” — John F. Kennedy


“I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”Thomas Jefferson


“The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.”Thomas Jefferson


“Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have. The course of history shows us that as a government grows, liberty decreases.”— Thomas Jefferson


“Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.”— Thomas Jefferson


“The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.” — Thomas Jefferson


“History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance of which their civil as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purposes.” — Thomas Jefferson



“”And is not peace, in the last analysis, basically a matter of human rights — the right to live out our lives without fear of devastation – the right to breathe air as nature provided it — the right of future generations to a healthy existence?” (John F. Kennedy, June 10, 1963, American University speech)” — John F. Kennedy


“”But wherever we are, we must all, in our daily lives, live up to the age-old faith that peace and freedom walk together. In too many of our cities today, the peace is not secure because freedom is incomplete.” (John F. Kennedy, June 10, 1963, American University speech)” — John F. Kennedy


“The purpose of government is to enable the people of a nation to live in safety and happiness. Government exists for the interests of the governed, not for the governors.”Thomas Jefferson


“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
John F. Kennedy
