What made America so great for so long was that here, unlike in the oppressed states of Eastern Europe, bureaucratic nightmare states of Western Europe, despotic regimes of the East in past and present, or corrupt oligarchies of South America, all of which stifle innovation and creation, here people were free to do what they saw fit.
Businesses could be created or closed as necessary, industry thrived under the watchful eye but light hand of government, low taxes propelled the economy forward, and the ruthless but fair free market was prized over the comforting but inefficient and ineffective arms of a tyrannical bureaucracy.
That was the America of the Gilded Age, the America of the Founding, the America that Reagan reinvigorated to some degree, and the America that Trump worked his hardest to recreate.
Unfortunately, thanks to our continual drift toward bureaucracy and technocracy, as Fox News Channel’s Steve Hilton pointed out in a recent monologue, mercilessly tearing into the technocracy and its effects, saying:
“That’s the number one rule of government by ‘expert idiot.’ No one is ever held accountable , however much they screw up. Which of course we see in the absolute crowning glory of the expert idiot’s takeover of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Let’s just take a moment to remember the vanity, the self-importance, the sheer brazen certainty of these expert idiots who turned out to be completely devastatingly wrong.”

And that wasn’t all. Hilton proceeded to rip into the idea of rule by “expert idiot,” particularly through the lens of what America was built on and what ideas used to make America work, saying: “Of course, it is all laughable now how wrong the experts were, how wrong the vast majority of the […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
