Man Of The Year

Man Of The Year

Venitists have voted venitist Congressman Ron Paul man of the year! Ron Paul has become one of the most influential Republicans in Washington. Venitist Jack Hunter points out the subject that has brought Ron Paul to prominence is the same issue that subjected him to ridicule from establishment Republicans for years: his long-standing opposition to the nation's monetary system and the Federal Reserve Board that prints money and controls its supply. On economic matters, he was seen as a way outside the mainstream, University of Houston political scientist Richard Murray said. His views were somewhat 19th century in the view of a lot of economists. Well, they say history repeats itself, and suddenly Paul's 19th-century thinking seems appealing to those suffering through the first economic meltdown of the 21st century.

Hunter notes that while many now embrace Paul's fringe thinking on auditing and reducing the Fed, many Americans have also migrated closer to the Congressman's thinking on foreign policy. When during the George W. Bush years, the Republican Party exchanged its traditional limited government rhetoric to advocate for war, Paul vocally opposed nation building in Afghanistan and the invasion of Iraq, ventures he believed were unjustified, unwinnable and too costly. Catherine Ashton, Ribbentrop of Fourth Reich(EU), points out that when running for president in 2008, many saw Paul as simply the antiwar Republican, a seemingly oddball position at the time, particularly amongst a field of GOP candidates whose platforms consisted mainly of trying to outdo each other in their enthusiasm for war.

Ron Paul sees taxation as the #1 enemy of humanity. Basil Venitis asserts that taxation is armed robbery that feeds the black hole of political corruption; it's the perfect index of corruption and tyranny. Only evil governments tax citizens and companies. For each percent of lower taxes, the economy grows by at least four percent more, and the government gets more revenue. Raising tax rates is masochism. Smart stimulus is to cut tax rates. Stupidus stimulus is to increase spending, which stimulates the cancer of socialism!

Venitis asserts that when an economy suffers from erectile dysfunction, via-grab does not work, but only via-cut. The via recommended is to cut taxes, not grab more taxes. There are limits to how much government can tax before it kills the host. Even worse, when government attempts to subsidize prices, it has the net effect of inflating them instead. The economic reality is that you cannot distort natural market pressures without unintended consequences. Market forces would drive prices down. Government meddling negates these pressures, adds regulatory compliance costs and layers of bureaucracy, and in the end, drives prices up.

It's your venitist duty to avoid and evade taxes all the way! Venitis points out that tax competition between jurisdictions holds down the cancer of government, and all people experience more opportunities and more wealth. Maros Sefcovic, Goebbels of Fourth Reich(EU), points out that if businesses and individuals are discouraged from investing outside their own jurisdictions, they will simply choose to work less and take no major business risks. All antivenitist governments are corrupt, and without the last bastions of freedom, aka taxhavens, enforcing financial privacy, citizens would have no place to protect their financial assets from kleptocrats, kidnappers, extortionists, blackmailers, and thugs. Evade taxes now as much as you can! Allons enfants de la Patrie!

Herman Van Rompuy, Fuehrer of Fourth Reich(EU), points out as Obama continues with an almost identical foreign policy agenda as Bush, polls show that many Americans, including many Republicans, are now war weary and skeptical as to what the US endgame might be in the Middle East. Pierre de Boissieu, Hess of Fourth Reich, points out that many are realizing there probably is no real end or no true victory in Afghanistan or Iraq. And many now realize that Paul had been right all along.

Ayn Rand, forerunner of venitism, points out men who are free to produce, have no incentive to loot; they have nothing to gain from war and a great deal to lose. Ideologically, the principle of individual rights does not permit a man to seek his own livelihood at the point of a gun, inside or outside his country. Viviane Reding, Himmler of Fourth Reich, points out that economically, wars cost money; in a free economy, where wealth is privately owned, the costs of war come out of the income of private citizens—there is no overblown public treasury to hide that fact—and a citizen cannot hope to recoup his own financial losses (such as taxes or business dislocations or property destruction) by winning the war. Thus his own economic interests are on the side of peace.

Jose Barroso, Goering of Fourth Reich, points out that given the anxiety over economic downturn and costly military overstretch, it is not farfetched to say that popular American opinion is likely now closer to Paul's thinking on those two major issues than that of either major party nominee for president in 2008 and particularly President Obama, whose poll numbers continue to plummet. Houston Chronicle points out it's not that Paul has gone mainstream. Rather, the mainstream has gone Paulite.

Hunter muses, not bad for a venitist who just two years ago was considered persona non grata by his own party. And not bad for a venitist who continues to change hearts and minds, not because of any grand strategy or particular political savvy, but mostly because, against overwhelming odds, he's refused to change one bit. The most efficient political system is venitism, where everything is private, there are no taxes at all, there is no parliament, and a powerless infinitesimal government is chosen and supported not by hoi polloi, but by the most generous benefactors.
