Realist or Visionary? Left or Right? Democrat or Republican? Why all of the labels? Part 1

The Country, and quite possibly, the World in which we live is in constant peril of destruction by suicide, either by our own hands or allowing others to help us “walk towards the light”. The Visionary side leads to a Utopian society. The only problem is that Utopia does not exist. Utopia is a scheme, existing only in the imagination and can not be achieved. A Realist side leads to the acceptance of facts, rejecting of anything impractical or visionary.
On Terrorism:
The Visionary, believes that it stems from poverty and un-equality in the world. The Visionary spends their day wondering why don’t they like us(America). Then, somehow they reach this conclusion, we(America) have so much and they have so little. If we just give them more money, build more schools, roads and improve their standard of living they will come to love us and the world will be at peace.
The Realist, believes it stems from laziness, after all it is easier to destroy than to build. After all Osama bin Laden was no poor man by any stretch of the imagination. We(America)have so much because we got up off our butts and set a course to prosperity. If money is given to them, they will only buy more guns and equipment to continue their struggle against prosperity and doesn’t care why they don’t like us(America).
On Gun Control:
The Visionary, believes we(America)need to curb gun violence. They want to enact more laws to keep the children safe. They are in favor of registering all guns and gun owners. They are in favor of making and enforcing “gun free zones” and then posting them as such. The more extreme want to do away with the Second Amendment to The Constitution, have all weapons turned in or confiscated. They will then want all that are non-compliant arrested and thrown prison. The Only problem with this, the criminal element did not follow the law in the first place. What makes you think they will follow the next one? The law abiding citizens are not the problem.
The Realist, believes(knows) guns are not violent. This is a fact, you can load any gun to its fullest capacity, cock(if it is so designed)and then lay it on a desk,table or where ever and it will lay there until the end of time and never commit a violent act. If you don’t believe me , give it a try. A gun, simply is not capable of violence. For a gun to become violent, it takes a person to pull the trigger. What better target than a posted “gun free zone”? Registration leads to confiscation. Confiscation leads to tyranny. The Second Amendment is what guarantees that you will have any rights at all. If you do not believe this, then you do not read or believe in history, and deserve to have it revisited on your Utopian butt.
On the Death Penalty:
The Visionary believes, it is un-necessary, because in a Utopian world there is no crime and all is peaceful.
The Realist believes, We are a nation of laws because we are a good and decent society, but, there are unlawful acts committed upon good and law abiding citizens. If you take another persons life in an unlawful manner, you forfeit your right to life. At the latest successful execution there seemed to be some concern for the pain that may or may not have been felt by the condemned. So what, the condemned had no feeling for the pain his victim felt. The death penalty would be a more effective deterrent if it were visited upon the condemned in a more timely manner. If it helps the Liberals, they can think of it as a “late term” abortion.
On Education:
The Visionary believes, and now unfortunately teaches that are no winners or losers, everyone is equal. The “playing field ” must be level, everyone must have an equal chance.
The Realist believes, everyone has a chance and a choice, you win or lose, by your efforts and merits. You only get what you earn, not by what you or someone else thinks you deserve. You do not deserve what a person, through effort and struggle has earned and is truly entitled to.
If I must be Labeled something I choose “Realist”. To borrow a line from the past, “Let these Truths be Self-Evident”. I will not be Disarmed, I will not be Intimidated and I will not be a Victim. Walk toward the light if you must. I will not join you, but I do wish you god speed and happy trails.
