Political Magic Conceals The Reality Of Government

July 27, 2016

We’ve all seen Las Vegas style magic shows live or on television. Most of us understand that the person performing the magic is attempting to trick us into believing that what we are seeing is real. Some people actually believe that what they are seeing is real and not an illusion. Fortunately most of us know that what we are seeing is a trick.

Politics is a magic show. Politicians are performers who are constantly perfecting their craft of verbal sleight of hand. The Republican and Democrat conventions are elaborate Las Vegas type magic shows. Politicians are attempting to use the magic of politics to hide the simple truth that Government is force. Some of us know that what they are seeing is an illusion. Unfortunately most people believe that what they are seeing is real.

GOVERNMENT IS FORCE

George Washington“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force, like fire it is a dangerous servant, and a fearful master.”

Let’s show you the reality of Government that politicians try to hide through political magic. These videos are from the Institute For Justice. They show the force of Government, that politicians and bureaucrats can bring to bear against individual citizens.

CONCLUSION

These are not isolated incidents. Things like this are happening all over the country and at every level of government. This is the reality of what government is all about. Politicians use political magic to get control of the levers of power. Neither party wants to shrink the power of government because they know that at some point they will be the ones in charge. The message coming out of the Republican and Democrat conventions is that the size and scope of government will increase. Very few politicians want government power to shrink.

People have to understand that politics is a magic show put on for the purpose of tricking you into believing that what you are hearing is real. If we continue to be fooled by the illusion of politics, government will continue to intervene in every aspect of your life.

Kshama Sawant On Why It’s Time For Socialism In Seattle, by Rachel Soloman, at kuow.org. At least Dshama Sawant admits she’s a socialist unlike most Democratic politicians and a lot of Republican politicians. She ran for office on raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, taxing the wealthy, and rent control. These policies lead to fewer low wage workers being hired, less wealth producing activities, and an artificial shortage of rental units. Socialism doesn’t trump supply and demand. I bet you can’t get through 4 minutes of this nonsensical drivel.

Why Some Doctors Are Bypassing And Going Cash-Only, by Susan Abram, at dailynews.com. Quote from the article, “I’ve encouraged those who want to do it,” she said. “I’ve offered to help them.

I encourage them to get the government out of the room…..“I had to do this to be able to do my job,” said Dr. Marcy Zwelling who has been an internist since 1987. “I get to practice the way I think I can practice best. It’s capitalism at its best.” I saw this at aei-ideas.org.

Jesus Lived In A Police State, by John W. Whitehead, at rutherford.org. Excerpt from the article, “Unfortunately, the radical Jesus, the political dissident who took aim at injustice and oppression and was nailed to a cross as a warning to others, has been largely forgotten today, replaced by a congenial, smiling Jesus trotted out for religious holidays but otherwise rendered mute when it comes to matters of war, power and politics.”
