    Mike Gallagher gets outfoxed by socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and company

    I hate to admit it but on Mike Gallagher’s radio talk show [Mon, Mar 11, 2019] he attacks Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for indicating capitalism is “irredeemable”, and he goes on to condemn the former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper for refusing to acknowledge he’s a “capitalist”.


    What is inexcusable is, Mike Gallagher takes great pride in labeling and embracing what our founders created as being “capitalism” or a “capitalist” system. But these references were unknown to our founders, and never used by them to identify our system.


    In fact “capitalism” was used and popularized by Karl Marx to falsely identify our free market system, and then attack it without appearing to attack freedom itself ___ the inalienable right of people being free to mutually agree in their contracts and associations.



    By contrast, our Founder’s often describe our system in a manner promoting a “free” market, “free” trade, and “free” enterprise ___ “free” being the operative word which socialist and communist leaders do not want you to know is what they are attacking when they attack the illusive system they call “capitalism”.


    For example see Thomas Jefferson’s : First Annual Message to Congress


    ”Agriculture, manufactures, commerce, and navigation, the four pillars of our prosperity, are the most thriving when left most free to individual enterprise.”


    So, Mike Gallagher, and many other media personalities, including many on Fox News Channel, by adopting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s language which references our system as capitalism, or a capitalist system, and embracing that terminology instead of referencing our system using the prefix “free” as our founders did, they assist Alexandria Cortez and her ilk in concealing what these socialist leaders are really attacking which is attacking mankind’s inalienable right to be free to mutually agree in their contracts and associations.



    For more on the distinctions between our system, as intended by our Founders, and “Capitalism”, see: PART TWO: Free Enterprise is Better than Capitalism The following descriptions of “Capitalism” and “Free Enterprise” are noted as follows:



    Capitalism (crony capitalism): A system where the law encourages market forces and also gives preference and special benefits to the sector of the economy owned by big capital—including big corporations like in Corporatism, but also wealthy foreign and multinational corporations, and highly influential non-corporate institutions such as rich foundations, moneyed trusts, political parties, well-funded lobbies and special interest groups, affluent non-profit entities, wealthy families, moneyed foreign investors, and others with large amounts of capital. Under this system, the rich rule society, and they naturally influence government to maintain policies that benefit the rich more than others.



    Free Enterprise: A system where the law encourages market forces and gives no special preferences; it protects equal rights for all individuals and entities and leaves initiative and enterprise to private individuals, groups, businesses and organizations that are all treated equally and with minimal legislation by the legal code.

    The liberty of the people to succeed or fail at their own hand is a socialist leader’s nightmare, and not the American Dream.

    I have never considered or realized it until now, but I don’t ever remember myself using the term capitalism. I always use the rightful term “Free Market” on the board and out in public.
    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    I try to avoid it myself...Free markets, voluntary markets, free economies are all better terms.

    This has been one of my pet peeves for many years. Just like homosexuals co-opted the word "gay' to soften and obscure what they really are, the word "capitalism" is used by socialists and communists to attack our free market system without having to use phraseology containing the word "free". It's more convenient and sort of innocuous to condemn evil "capitalists" and "capitalism", then to opposed and attack those engaging if free enterprise, free trade or a free market system. Students in many colleges are taught by their professors that capitalism is evil, and that we now live under a capitalist system ___ therefore our system must be changed. Have you noticed how Cortez gains support for her socialist/communist agenda?

    I would guess that another reason Marx used the word Capitalism was because it could be seen as something only engaged in and enjoyed by bankers and the extremely wealthy of that time.

    That is true. Note how our federal government has conspired with bankers and created a money monopoly called the Federal Reserve, a group of private banks, and has made their notes [Federal Reserve Notes] a legal tender for all debts, public and private, in spite of our founders specifically rejecting such power to be granted to Congress. Indeed, this creation can justly be called the heart and soul of capitalism ___ a money monopoly in which a particular bank's interest bearing notes have been made a legal tender, which in essence has been a slow but sure death sentence for a free market system.

    "We have, in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board. This evil institution has impoverished the people of the United States and has practically bankrupted our government. It has done this through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it". — Congressman Louis T. McFadden in 1932 (Rep. Pa)

    The Federal Reserve System of 1913 and the Sixteenth Amendment, also of 1913, have spread the evil tentacles of capitalism into almost every corner of our once free market system.

    .

    Under Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s and Bernie Sanders’ socialist agenda, today's crony capitalism would be on display, but with newly created privileged classes and preferential treatment would remain the order of the day. But under a free enterprise/free market system, as our founders intended, no preferential treatment is to be expected while the inalienable right of people being free to mutually agree in their contracts and associations would be a primary priority of government.

    The Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialism, AKA Crony Capitalism, will promise food on the table, free public housing, health care for all, guaranteed income, free college tuition, and other niceties by taxing the so called rich; and if by chance their socialist leadership gains control because of such promises made, the end result, as John Adams stated, “will be revengeful, bloody, and cruel” especially for the most productive, hardworking members of the community.

    In defense of Mike Gallagher



    In defense of Mike Gallagher, I do not consider him an enemy to our constitutionally limited system of government. But he does make errors from time to time, and not making the distinction between our “free” market, “free” enterprise system from today’s “Crony Capitalism” is one of those errors. Unfortunately, a number of Fox News Channel’s personalities also make the same error.


    I just though addressing this error may open the eyes of some who have unsuspectingly allowed the “left” to control language in order to obscure their true intentions.

    It was February of 2019 when an ongoing invasion of America’s borders swelled to tens of thousands a month, not a shot was fired to defend the borders of the United States, and America’s domestic enemies, socialists, communists and anarchists in Congress, pushed forward with their attempt to embrace the invasion in hopes of conquering a prosperous and freedom loving people.
