St. Louis Citizenship Movement

October 19, 2009 1 comment

The Greyfalcon is a current events and political blog.   The focus will be on advancing the conservation on how freedom is being impacted by this  federal government’s agenda.  The goal is to develop a fellowship amongst conservatives, independents, and everyone  else who may be  concerned about the current state of affairs in America today.   The Greyfalcon advocates a common sense coalition, not limited to alignment or identification.  Though  written from a conservative perspective,  the ultimate cause is the phenomenon that has evolved into this generation’s most energized citizenship movement.  This movement was spearheaded by some conservatives, but now has grown to include millions of independents, moderate Democrats, and even many liberals who are disaffected by the overbearing directives coming from this government.                                        

In this case we make a distinction between liberals and progressive authoritarians.  Liberals are basically those who seek to use government policy to achieve what they perceive to fairness and balance, for the sake of improving the lot of the less fortunate.  A true liberal wants to raise taxes on the wealthy to help those in need based on a genuine sense of altruism.  Dennis Kusinich and Kendrick Meeks are liberals in this respect.  Progressive authoritarians differ from liberals in that they openly forsake the interests of the “poor” for the sake of achieving control and punishing those citizens they find threatening.   Massive inflationary spending, the cigarette and soda taxes, and the proposed looting of medicare are all measures that hurt low income families.  These and other such measures are designed to subordinate individual behavior to the public sector.   At best, they believe that individuals are unable to make the best decisions for themselves, and at worst they simply see themselves as having the right to dictate terms because they are in the government.  Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Barbra Boxer, Dick Durbin, and Barrack Obama are all progressive authoritarians. 

This clear distinction between liberals and progressive authoritarians is vitally important to the growing citizenship movement.  Historically, true liberals opposed giving the government  too much power, and were defined by their desire  for freedom.  But this new cabal in power today are losing the confidence of  these very liberals, as they are obviously not lovers of individual freedom.  So even though The Greyfalcon is certainly a conservative blog,  it invites betrayed liberals to join in this populist campaign to restore the vitality of the greatest nation on earth.  And we encourage Democrats to retake their party from the dogmatic usurpers who have turned it into a front for big money identity politics and media manipulation.   And we call on those around the world voice their belief in America and the universal truth that freedom and strength are always better that socialism and surrender.
