Dear RamZPaul. I’m a long time fan of yours. I’ve been enjoying your videos for almost a decade. If I ever visit Arkansas, I would love to meet up and buy you a beer.
But I’m afraid you have come down with a bad case of boomerism.
1 any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
2a a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
2b a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
3 a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done
Universal Basic Income is not socialism. It does not put the means of production in the hands of the state. The means of production remain in private hands.
Universal Basic Income is not government control over the distribution of goods.
UBI is “welfare” – as in the dole – only if you also believe that a stock dividend is also “welfare” and the dole.
UBI is “welfare” only if you also believe that interest on a savings account or a bond is also “welfare.”
But of course you don’t mean any of that. So why this fanatical hatred of UBI?
Who owns the United States of America? The citizens. So why would anyone oppose the citizens of the United States getting a dividend? Residents of Alaska get a check every month for their share of the oil profits.
UBI is American citizens getting a share of the money printed by the Federal Reserve, essentially. The US dollar is a function of the sovereign state, if the American people are the owners of the state, then of course the owners get a share of the profits.
UBI is the opposite of taxation. If we are really free and sovereign people, the government should pay taxes TO US, not the other way around.
People just can’t wrap their heads around UBI because they have lived their entire lives as slaves and don’t even understand what freedom is.
The male citizens of the United States can be forced, whenever the state wants, to serve in the armed forces and the militia. US male citizens are required, as a part of their citizenship, to give up their lives for the country.
Yet, for some crazy reason, the idea of the United States government doing something for their citizens causes insanity, especially in the boomer mind.
It’s long, long, long past time for a Freedom Dividend – a universal basic income.
This WILL offend the moral senses of libertarian cranks and conservative ideologues. They are so USED to their slave collars they are terrified – absolutely terrified – when they start to come off.
For some crazy reason, RamZPaul believes that only Jews should be allowed to create money. When the goyim create their own money – well, the whole universe turns upside down! Communism! Socialism!
Isn’t it just natural that wealthy Jews be given the exclusive right to create money? After all, that is the way it was done in Europe during the entire Christian era, until the Protestant Reformation.
Please – educate yourself RamZPaul.
We are going to need people like you to regain our freedoms. Don’t go all boomer on us now.
P.S. – I sure as hell never claimed to be “right wing.” I can’t image why anyone would want to be right-wing, or left-wing for that matter. Why should I blindly follow some sort of ideology from hundreds of years ago based on the seating arrangement of the French Parliament?
Are you daft, man?
