‘A business man cannot force you to buy his product; if he makes a mistake, he suffers the consequences; if he fails, he takes the loss. A bureaucrat forces you to obey his decisions, whether you agree with him or not—and the more advanced the stage of a country’s statism, the wider and more discretionary the powers wielded by a bureaucrat. If he makes a mistake, you suffer the consequences; if he fails, he passes the loss on to you, in the form of heavier taxes’. ~ Ayn Rand, ‘From My Future File’, the Ayn Rand letter
Many moons ago while still a student prior to college in my native England, we were being taught the very basic principles of leadership, among which was the study and influence of business leaders and their important effect upon society. Ayn Rand is to this day, still one of my influencers of plain old commonsense.
In our lessons on government and its supposed importance in the everyday challenges of life, big, bad, government became labeled as the ultimate source of power, wealth, and control. In those days of course, right after not one, but TWO world wars instigated at the behest of the evil ones, we learned a very enduring lesson – Look out for those gravitating towards government, whose sole purpose is to use it as a means to an end.
To whit, acquiring more power, more wealth, more control of government bureaucracies; and all at the expense and on the backs of we fellow citizens. Government is accountable to no one. For one thing, who dare go forth to arrest the sheriff?
Enter the lessons on the importance of Capitalism vs the misery of Socialism.
There’s a wonderful juxtaposition coming up in a great piece on the topic from Michael Smith in American Thinker, which highlights the difference between career politicians like Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Cummings, Nadler, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, etc etc., having accomplished absolutely nothing in 40 years in Washington, contrasted with the brilliance of President Trump’s multi-entrepreneurial business career with accomplishments all around the globe.
As a lead-in, Biden mumbled and stumbled his way the other day in an attempt to describe the president as an existential threat to America. Almost correct, dare we say, but he got the target of that threat totally wrong. President Trump is most definitely an existential threat to the DemoMarxocrat Club, but not to We the People of America.
President Trump is a deviant, of that there is no argument. On that, Democrats, NeverTrumpers and Trump supporters all can agree – and by “deviant”, I simply mean that he varies from the accepted norms. Now whether you see this as a good thing or a bad thing is a matter worthy of discussion, but one thing is true, Trump represents a significant departure from presidential culture of the past 50 years.
Trump’s deviancy threatens the left because it shows people there is another, more direct way to get things done than the mutated and metastasized puffery practiced by the powdered wig disciples of a process of indirect diplomacy straight out of the perfumed courts of 18th century Europe.
It’s a problem for the Left due to the pseudo-realistic world they have created — and have trained generations of pre-pubescent progressives it is a world in which they should expect to live. It’s a world where there are such things as female penises and menstruating male vaginas, a world where any people can “identify” as anything their deluded minds can conceive, and society as a whole is not only expected to accept that choice but must celebrate it in the loudest of voices. It is a world in which weak beta males establish the boundaries for masculinity and butch masculine females are expected to be the alpha.
In the Marvel comic and cinematic universes, Dr. Strange can create a “mirror universe” where sorcery can be practiced without changing the real world — that’s where the progressive sorcerers live — the mirror universe.
Thank goodness, this leftist world is a “mirror” creation that doesn’t exist.

Fearless President Trump and his business acumen has benefited America alright, plus We the People greatly in just the two years he has been in office. His policies quickly reversed the damaging trends created by the Obama / Biden / DemoMarxocrat plans for the future. Americans now have more jobs and more money to spend. The coffers of the Federal Government are receiving more money now than they have in decades.
These facts are easy to see and very difficult to dispute honestly. That is why the DemoMarxocrats hate Trump so much. As a business man extraordinaire, he is showing the world the path to wealth and happiness, and it is not the path the idiotic fools on the left are trying to sell.
The difference between fearless president Donald Trump and his multifaceted opponents (including RINO detractors) is that Trump says what’s on his mind, while the others say what they’ve been told to say. I’ll take a plain talking politician over one that is little more than a ventriloquist dummy any day of the week.
Yes, Trump is an existential threat for sure, but the threat is targeted at the DemoMarxocrats and their stifling success-killing politics.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – Warrior-president and business man Donald J. Trump – MAGA!
