Is it Time for Some Undocumented Capitalism Yet? Lots of ‘Persons’ Practice that in the US Now with Favors from Our Government

Is it Time for Some Undocumented Capitalism Yet? Lots of ‘Persons’ Practice that in the US Now with Favors from Our Government.

Governments prostrate themselves and dive into crime and worse when their survival depends on culturing and supporting degeneracy, crime and sloth.  All their wonderful promises and speechifying tend to evaporate when they realize they might lose power. California is the latest example. The ‘glorious’ October Revolution in Russia  produced only chaos and a frantic search for a stable food supply and seemed to fail to association of  splendor and glory with  the rule of the proletariat; cheap thugs ran the government. The kulaks[1], frequently wealthy but not of the aristocracy and closely identified with the bourgeoisie[or more accurately petite bourgeoisie[2] in this case],  were summarily murdered when they refused to just give their land, food and animals to the Bolsheviks so Lenin was forced to conjure some plan to placate these ‘peasants’ and produced his New Economic Policy (NEP).[3] They were depicted as ruffians with silk top hats in the 1919 Bolshevik posters[4] plastered everywhere in public. This failed movement, of course, as most far leftist plans do, and when food was scarce capitalism flourished in the very faces of the Marxists when peasants were encouraged to sell their food and wares openly in the market place thus defeating the very principle of socialism. Liberals tend to try to perform a similar trick with ‘education’…ejukashon’?? We eventually witnessed how the USSR system of a command economy failed to produce even one quarter of the food necessary and those who would ‘manage’ the economy and pick the correct time to dig potatoes finally just ignored the kiosks that were providing most of the food.  Lenin would rather have shot these people, but needed the food and other products. Duranty Papers[5] would have sanctioned their holocaust as a necessary step to advance socialism ["…liquidated or melted in the hot fire of exile and labor into the proletarian mass]. Such poetic flair! Maureen Dowd should study this example.

In our country Hispanic Parasites have a cozy arrangement with the liberal whereby he can enter the country illegally, work where he wants, supply false Social Security numbers to employers (who are looking the other way any way) and then just not submit state and federal tax returns because that would cause  interferences at the federal and state levels anyway. But, registering to vote in states where ID checking is as passé as virginity, Poncho can make money tax free by working or hustling drugs and send back as much as he wants without interference from our federal government.

But, our government is stuck at this time as they cannot exactly raise taxes on the working stooges who believe in their hokum and fluff so we just print money and tax whomever at the highest rates possible. This doesn't work well in either the long or short terms for several reasons:

[1] Higher taxes increase business costs and results in lower tax revenues.

[2] Government rules and regulations do the same thing and discourage job creation by small businesses.

[3] Big businesses have more flexibility and if they are ‘too big to fail’ then they can ask for a bailout with some consideration stuffed into the pockets of the politicians. 

So, the squeeze is on and what is left are those who can run efficient business operations and keep people employed and pay their inordinate share of taxes to support the habits of the politicians and their clients. That group is not responding well to the Obama Fascism we hear all about on CBS and other in-the-tank state news services.

One of the reasons proffered to not go after Poncho and his jolly friends is that it would cost too much to deport 10-20 million souls and they are needed to scrub the toilets and pick berries anyway. Their obvious crimes are thus ignored and we can then wonder what the equal protection clause[6] actually means.  What happened to the Rule of Law? The 14th Amendment has limitations so we might look at the enumerated commerce clause [7] listed directly but vaguely in the United States Constitution (Article 1, Section 8, and Clause 3). These two angles let the federal government sneak around the 9th and 10th Amendments that would give states the basis to decide to accept [or not] all unnumerated laws not reserved to the federal government. All this is complicated but the words ‘regulation’ and ‘commerce’ have been so distorted that several opportunities in the law exist for both the left and right to continue to blowtorch the Constitution.

One then wonders if some others  are borrowing some of the tactics of the California marijuana growers and wantonly  flouting the narcotics laws and avoiding taxes but serving the politicians all at the same time with dope and gifts. These Mary Jane types successfully beat the federal law in Mexifornia, [8] and now make big profits even thought they are supposed to be non profit and such baloney and operate in cooperatives and, we might suspect, be subject to taxation and extensive record keeping. There eventually comes an encounter with a knife-edge decision where the risk of being sent to jail for some ‘crime’ is balanced by the risk of losing your possessions and career because of confiscatory taxes of the income, fee and inheritance classes—particularly old white folks.[9]  What we might expect would be a growing trend where professionals would trade their respective services in a barter system devoid of paper and 1099 forms.  We have seen recently that USB [Swiss Bank] has yielded only about 4500 names and account numbers to the IRS of those felons would hide tax-avoidance monies and make good profits with no tax burdens.  Can I offer a bet that no Democrat member of Congress is on that list? Out of a country of 310 million it seems that this number is inordinately small although it only covers a bank in the original Dirty Money Country and avoids such places as Luxemburg and the Cayman Islands and a few other spots. And, if California wants to tax pot at 30% to save their budget and credit ratings we can wonder why former criminals who are adept in evading such fates might want to pay such a high tax and just break a few more laws as California may have to furlough many of their drug enforcement yoyos anyway. The feds are busy hunting down white terrorists anyway.

It is not clear how much of a problem this is now or what it might be in the near future but when unemployment is high and rising and the number of people who might be forced to practice some ‘undocumented capitalism’ might ascend to several million while our jails are already stuffed to the rafters with violent criminals now so where would be put all these errant entrepreneurs? Or what do the federal and state tax collectors do if people refuse to pay their fines? Seize their property and bank accounts? What if they refused like Gandhi?

An oppressive and tax hungry government might compel a societal change in the average citizen’s behaviour in this country and force people to conduct commerce underground like they did in the USSR for 74 years until that wreckage rotted away in a blizzard of worthless rubles. Then, like magic, the economy flourished and a thousand new millionaires were created in Moscow alone all financed with US 100 dollar bills. Their mattresses must have bulged as dollars were illegal in the good old USSR.  Are some of our more clever entrepreneurs hiding gold bullion in safe places? If our currency crashed who would have liquid assets? Certainly not  the bank account holders in frozen or defunct banks.

What would our government do if modern ‘peasants’ just refused to ship their food and produce to the cities and set up kiosks along the highways? Tear them down? Burn the crops? What if the food supply was scarce? Seize farms and let government officials perform honest work in the fields to produce milk and lettuce and corn for the city crowd?

Big government is a big failure on this planet so we wonder just how far the average citizen can be pushed before he or she becomes interested in ‘undocumented capitalism’ because the illegal aliens seem to be making this work very well and are the darlings of the far left and they are certainly not being deported in great numbers and are not fined and are not rotting in jails for 5 years. The current leftist treatment of the Rule of Law is a joke.

If our economy crashes we may get instant answers to many of these questions. Our society will scarcely tolerate the notion that the government should own everything and just give orders like they did in the old USSR.  Only half of us are that stupid.

[5] In honor of that celebrated Communist stooge and liar and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for the NYT. The color RED is used in my essays in honor of Walter Duranty, a saint, if there could be one, in the Marxist Archives of Honor.

He said that these people had to be "liquidated or melted in the hot fire of exile and labor into the proletarian mass". Duranty claimed that the Siberian labor camps were a means of giving individuals a chance to rejoin Soviet society but also said that for those who could not accept the system, "the final fate of such enemies is death."Duranty, though describing the system as cruel, says he has "no brief for or against it, nor any purpose save to try to tell the truth". He ends the article with the claim that the brutal collectivization campaign which led to the famine was motivated by the "hope or promise of a subsequent raising up" of Asian-minded masses in the Soviet Union which only history could judge.”
