Once Upon A Time…‘Those who can’t remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’

September 3, 2010 § 2 Comments

Once upon a time in a land not too far away, there was a country where the people were desperate for someone to save them from an evil villain. They wanted someone that would offer some real change and fundamentally change the country. Then one day this young man came to their rescue.

The young man’s mother was a local and his father was an immigrant. He was abandoned by his father at a very young age. He graduated from law school with a Doctor of Laws degree. As a student, he became politically involved in the university, and was soon to distinguish himself as “a talented orator and organizer”.

He gave inspiring speeches and was very passionate and told the people everything they wanted to hear. In his speeches he denounced the old system so, of course, the press and the people fell in love with him. They never questioned who his friends were or what he really believed in. The people never questioned this because they desperately needed “change” and they were right. The current government was less than perfect. He also promised to end government corruption.

Bribes were a common way of doing business in this era. Some of his other promises were the transformation of the country into a modern, progressive nation. When he said he would help the farmers and the poor and bring free medical care and education to all, everyone followed.

He had the ability to hypnotize the ignorant and fool the wishful thinker and to divide a nation in classes , (divide and you shall conquer) he divided the rich against the poor, the illiterate against the educated and the black against the white. When he said he would bring justice and equality to all, everyone said, ‘Praise the Lord!’. And when this young leader said, “I will be for change and I’ll bring you change” everyone felt a thrill going up their leg and still nobody asked about the change.

He was accused by many of being a communist but he always denied it. During this period repeatedly denied being a communist. He would said, “I don’t agree with communism. We are democracy. We are against all kinds of dictators… That is why we oppose communism”.

Socially and economically, a relatively advanced country, certainly by Latin American standards and, in some areas, by world standards. Unlike what its reported by some for the purpose of misinforming, this country also had an excellent educational system and impressive literacy rates, ranked third in Latin America in per capita food consumption, ranked first in Latin America and fifth in the world in television sets per capita, had 58 daily newspapers of differing political hues and ranked eighth in the world in number of radio stations.

Once he came into power, he welcomed communism with opened arms and formed close ties with other communist powers from around the world. He became less tolerant towards people who disagreed with him. People who questioned the wisdom of his policies were discharged and replaced by people who had proved their loyalty to him. These people that helped him come into power were revolutionary enthusiasts, often young, totally inexperienced in the task of government. Their proclaimed objectives included the restoration of the constitution of 1940, the electoral code and land reform. After their victory, all these were forgotten.

He seized agricultural estates, factories, utilities, personal property, nationalized banks and industries all in the efforts to spread the wealth. By the time all these changes were finally implemented, the country had been knocked down a couple of notches to Third-World status.

Under this new Utopia:

* Free Elections were banned.
* Free speech is punishable as a crime against the state.
* Children became wards of the state – forcibly removed from their parents when they become teenagers.
* Take away from those that produce and give to those that need because it’s fair and patriotic.
* The populous were disarmed so they cannot defend themselves against a government that is out of control.
* All labor, social, and professional organizations controlled by the state.
* The press is controlled. There is no room for opposition. Dissidence means arrest and prison sentences.

By the time everyone was equal, they were equally poor, hungry, and oppressed. By the time the press noticed, it was too late, because they were now under the control of the new government.

These where some of his famous words:

“I warn you, I am just beginning! If there is in your hearts a vestige of love for your country, love for humanity, love for justice, listen carefully… I know that the regime will try to suppress the truth by all possible means; I know that there will be a conspiracy to bury me in oblivion. But my voice will not be stifled – it will rise from my breast even when I feel most alone, and my heart will give it all the fire that callous cowards deny it… Condemn me. It does not matter. History will absolve me.”

“The revolution has no time for elections. There is no more democratic government in Latin America than the revolutionary government. … If Mr. Kennedy does not like Socialism, we do not like imperialism. We do not like capitalism”

In the words of Sir Winston Churchill:

‘The inherent vice of Capitalism is the unequal distribution of blessings, the inherent vice of Socialism is the equal distribution of misery.’

I am going to end this story with other famous words of Jorge Santayana:

‘Those who can’t remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’


I don’t think I have to name this young leader and I don’t think I have to mention the name of the country. This happened in a real country not to far away from us.

I was born in this country and remember the struggles my family encountered under this “Utopia” We in America can not allow this to happen. We must fight to take our country back and make things right again.

“WE THE PEOPLE” must do this. Special interest groups want socialism for America and it is our fiduciary duty as American citizens to stop them.

My hero Ronald Reagan once said: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

“I am convinced of my ethical principles, the suffering of another human being is also mine, I cannot accept evil, because if I did my bones will erode and my soul will never be at peace.”
— Dr. Oscar Biscet, clandestine letter from prison (date unknown)

“To love one’s neighbor is also to love one’s enemy. Although in reality that qualifier-‘enemy’ does not exist in my vocabulary. I recognize that I only have adversaries and I have acquired the capacity to love them because in this way we do away with violence, wrath, vengeance, hatred and substitute them with justice and forgiveness.”
Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet Gonzalez (1999)

-“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. They are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among these are life, liberty…the pursuit of happiness.” – The Declaration of Independence

– “You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man’s age-old dream — the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order –or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism.”-Ronald Reagan

–”Ours was the first revolution in the history of mankind that truly reversed the course of government, and with three little words: ‘We the people.’ ‘We the people’ tell the government what to do, it doesn’t tell us. ‘We the people’ are the driver, the government is the car. And we decide where it should go, and by what route, and how fast. Almost all the world’s constitutions are documents in which governments tell the people what their privileges are. Our Constitution is a document in which ‘We the people’ tell the government what it is allowed to do. ‘We the people’ are free.” -Ronald Reagan

-”Government “help” to business is just as disastrous as government persecution… the only way a government can be of service to national prosperity is by keeping its hands off. “AYN RAND (ATLAS SHRUGGED)

-”We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.”AYN RAND (ATLAS SHRUGGED)

-”I regard myself as a soldier…a soldier of peace.” – Ghandi

-”A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” Thomas Jefferson

-Upon exiting the Constitutional Convention Benjamin Franklin was approached by a group of citizens asking what sort of government the delegates had created. His answer was: “A republic, if you can keep it.” Such a short response should not cause us to under-value its essential meaning: democratic republics are not merely founded upon the consent of the people, they are also absolutely dependent upon the active and informed involvement of the people for their continued good health.”

-”Every generation needs a new revolution.” Thomas Jefferson

/▌Raise your hand if
/ \ you’re part of the 2010 Revolution!
America needs to reverse ‘the change’…with your vote. Remember November!

Never act until you have clearly answered the question: ”What happens if I do nothing?” ~Robert Brault
