Babis wins Czech election by massive margin
« on: October 21, 2017, 10:53:05 pm »

Well, well, well ....  Communism is not winning EVERYWHERE!!!

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-41708844

Populist billionaire candidate Andrej Babis and his party have won the Czech Republic's general election.
Mr Babis, 63, is the country's second-richest man and campaigned on an anti-establishment and Eurosceptic platform.
With all votes counted, his centrist movement ANO (Yes) collected a share of almost 30% - nearly three times that of its closest rival.

So, what makes you think this person doesn't love controlling other people as well? Not being a "communist" in name does not mean much these days among politicians. They all have a wonderful plan for our lives and our money...

Looks like logic is gaining ground in Europe:

https://voiceofeurope.com/2018/01/czech-republic-bulgaria-oppose-eus-migrant-redistribution-plans/

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis, had a meeting with Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, on Monday in Bulgaria. Babis called the EU’s migrant redistribution plans “absolutely unacceptable”.

And:

According to the Hungary Journal, Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto, made some very positive remarks about Austria’s new Chancellor Sebastian Kurz.
Szijjarto said, he could always rely on Kurz in the past during debates about migration in the Foreign Affairs Council. Before becoming Chancellor, Kurz was Foreign Minister like Szijjarto.

Some people continue to be in control of other people.

Some people continue to be in control of other people.

I certainly see your point, and I absolutely applaud it.  However, even though the IDEAL is "no government", we have to "live in the real world" and realise that things are not going to change just because we want them to.  Drastic change must happen eventually, if only because of practical considerations.  The old adage "what happens when you run out of other peoples' money?" And the fact that most people generally don't like to be pushed around, told what to do and forced (by threat of death) to "obey orders because we told you to and we're better than you" (and there's a myriad of other reasons but it is way past midnight here right now and I just don't have the energy to list them).  However, this is not going to happen "overnight".

It has to happen incrementally over many years.  I have realised that the world is full of "mindless zombies" "parroting" silly socialist mantras, laced with profanity, and having no idea what they're chanting about.  I realised this after watching three separate videos of "the womens' march" held in NYC recently (yeah, I was really bored and was waiting for the oven to come up to temperature as I'd made the pies I was making, washed all the dishes but forgotten to turn on the oven).  And I can just see these people "calling" for more and more "mala prohibita" laws and yelling "more, more" while the "jackboots stomp on them".

When my younger brother was around I had a running debate with him that went on for years that he called "cycle helmet logic".  The question we started out with (in about 1988) was "could you eventually be killed for refusing to wear a cycle helmet?" ("Killed" of course does NOT refer to a road accident where you could hit your head, this was not about whether or not it is good to wear a helmet while riding a bike, or not, but the principle of "compulsion").  I think we concluded that "yes, you could indeed be killed by 'law enforcement' eventually for refusing to wear a cycle helmet".  I think there is more people today than for a very long time (certainly in my lifetime) who would love to see someone killed for refusing to wear a cycle helmet.  So this makes me realise that freedom is a very foreign concept to a lot of people.

Most European countries have been "suicidally" (yeah I do know there isn't really such a word as this) "circling the drain" for some time now and seemingly loving to be controlled by the (crazy, in my opinion) EU, have absolutely embraced communism, political correctness and refugees.

This is why I was very happy to see Donald Trump elected president in America, and to see the country prospering as a result, and throwing off the socialist threat. I have heard "oh, America has got so insular now", but really I can see that America just HAS TO put "America first", anything else would be suicide for them, that would be just "dumb".

This is also why I find it really good to finally see articles like this one.  There is hope yet.  Hope for Europe now, some parts of Europe anyway.

I read a really good quote, somewhere, "pick your battles".

All I'm saying is that nothing changes no matter who "wins" an election. Nothing will change for the better until people realize that. I really don't care who "wins." They are all going to continue to control the lives and property of others. That's all that really matters. And I can't do a damned thing about it anyway.

And look!  Italy now too.  There had to be a backlash, it's not as bigger backlash as I thought it would be though.  Elections on 4 March.

http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/01/28/italian-populist-leader-promises-to-deport-500000-migrants/

Matteo Salvini, leader of the Lega Nord, has promised he will deport half a million migrants if he becomes Prime Minister of ITaly.
The Italian populist promised that if he is elected Prime Minister in the national election in March 2018 he will deport 100,000 migrants within his first year and half a million over the course of his five-year term, the Telegraph reports.
“There are half a million irregular migrants in Italy. All of them need to be sent home,” Salvini said earlier this week.
