What will we have learned; how long will we remember, and how far back from neo-Marxist extremism will the political pendulum swing before we lose the current American generations so fortunately inherited? Conditions must sometimes get very bad before we wake up to...
Beware Biden’s Trojan Horse!
President Joe Biden addressed a joint session of Congress and the American people yesterday. He presented Congress with a long list of freebies he wants to give Americans. “Freebies! What’s not to like?”
Let’s start with a military lesson from the Latin epic poem The Aeneid by Virgil. Virgil tells of the end of the Trojan war. The Greeks had fought against the Trojans for ten years. They could not breach the walls of the city of Troy. So, they announced to the Trojans that they were giving up and going home. They were leaving behind a gift, however, a giant wooden horse.
When the Greek ships had sailed away, the Trojans opened their gates and dragged the wooden horse inside the gates. That night, Greek soldiers hidden inside the horse came out and opened the gates of Troy. The Greek ships had returned that night. Their soldiers then entered the city walls, massacred the Trojans, and burned the city to the ground.
In that story, the priest Laocoön tried to warn the Trojans, saying “Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes” – paraphrased in English as “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.”
Beware of Biden Bearing Gifts
The wily Biden has just dumped a humongous Trojan Horse gift at the feet of Congress and the American people. Taken at face value, Biden’s “gifts” sound good. Just like the giant wooden horse looked beautiful to the gullible Trojans.
Let’s look this gift horse in the mouth. After all, we are paying for our own “free” stuff from Biden with our taxes and government printing-press inflation. Look deeper into the consequences of accepting freebies from the Federal Government. Like the candy that tastes sweet right now, with the consequence of weight gain by tomorrow morning.
Beware Biden Warning #1. We will pay for all of this through higher taxes on individuals and corporations. These higher taxes will get passed along to the rest of us. How? Corporations will pass through the higher taxes to us with higher prices on their goods and services. The price of all goods and services will rise due to the printing press inflation of government deficit spending: too many dollars chasing too few goods and services.
Beware Biden Warning #2. When we depend on the government for so many things, the government owns us and controls us. If we say or do anything those in power don’t like, the government can cut off the flow of freebies. When the government supplies the most basic necessities like food, clothing, and shelter, they have the power of life and death over you. Obey or starve. Just ask the Venezuelans.
Beware Biden Warning #3. Free Healthcare? The rollout of the Covid vaccine was slow, complicated, and bungled. Why? It was run by bumbling bureaucrats in each state’s Department of Health. Biden is offering more “free” healthcare. Expect delivery of this free healthcare to be complicated, bumbling, scarce, rationed, and slow. Remember, curing disease and treating injuries is time-sensitive. If it takes too long to get the treatment, the patient dies. And you and I are the patients, sooner or later.
Democratic Socialists are Not Your Friend
Notice the standard tactic of these Democratic Socialists:
- First, create a problem
- Second, give you a “free” solution (controlled by them)
Match this to the chain of events of the Wuhan Covid Pandemic:
- First, a virus is “accidentally” leaked out of a virus creation lab in Wuhan, China, partly financed by Dr. Fauci’s National Institute of Health (financed by your taxes). Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases had shelled out a total of $7.4 million (our money!) to the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab, according to the NY Post.
- The virus quickly spreads to the entire world, a global pandemic.
- The US Government finances “warp speed” development of vaccines and supervises the distribution of vaccines to the states. Provides free vaccine to anyone without health insurance to pay for it (wait, wasn’t ObamaCare supposed to insure everyone?).
See the pattern?
- Our government finances the creation of a virus that can make everyone sick.
- Our government finances the creation of a vaccine that can make everyone immune.
- Uncle Joe says, “See how well we take care of you? Tell your congressman to vote for my long list of freebies stuffed inside my legislative Trojan Horse.”
Tell Uncle Joe to Stick His Trojan Horse Freebies
Tell your Congressman and Senators to vote NO to Uncle Joe’s Trojan Horse Legislative package of freebies. Tell your friends and neighbors why you fear “Uncle Joe the Greek” bearing gifts. If our friendly elitist Congress passes it anyway, be on the watch for Uncle Joe’s foot-soldiers (financed and hidden within his Trojan Horse legislation) coming soon to a neighborhood near you. If you think healthcare is expensive now, wait until it is free. The price won’t be money; the price will be your freedom of choice in choosing your doctor and healthcare services.
