The Cult of Compromise: Shades of gray and a long list of taxes

If you want proof that politicians are a sleazy, manipulative bunch, all you have to do is listen to the open mic comments President Obama made recently to the outgoing Russian President in South Korea.

But why are they like this? Why are politicians universally perceived as corrupt? Well, I got a taste of why during my recent contentious week of politicking when a group of progressive thinking levy supporters tried to paint me as a sexist because of comments I made here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom. The panic from these groups appears to have been triggered by their intention to pass tax increases for our school district, and they thought that by removing me, it would shut down the tax resistance to their objectives. I heard from many of them as they gloated at my peril, or what they thought was peril, and they revealed much about their mentality which I have no doubt they share with President Obama.

One of the most shocking things said to me during the last week was that I was wrong for seeing the world in “black and white” and that the world was actually made up of shades of gray. In fact, that was the number one criticism of me by the mob of pro tax levy supporters—that I was too black and white for them, and that’s not the way the world works.

Well, I have news for those people and everyone else for that matter. Gray is not a decision. It’s a compromise where good surrenders something it has to evil. There are always right and wrong answers. There is such a thing as good and evil. And black and white are different colors.

When someone says they are in the middle of the road, or they see life in shades of gray they are essentially declaring that they are surrendering a portion of their decision-making ability to the collective mind of society. They trust society to make decisions for them. And individuals who make decisions outside the parameter of social consciousness are then called radicals. Being called a radical is the type of term a group uses to disqualify the statements of an individual who is more black or white than the group decides is comfortable. I am often termed as being a radical by these “gray” thinkers.

However, in any negotiation of any kind if equal value is not exchanged from one party to the other, then the party who gave away more than they should have would be said to have gotten a “bad deal.” When the “good” people who self generate and have intentions that are pure and non corrosive to the world around them, continuously produce “value,” even if the value is monetary or spiritual, or some other variation. Then evil are the parasites of existence, those who need to take from the “good” in order to live. They cannot self-sustain themselves and require the looting of the good in order to advance their lives, even for basic items. Evil must find ways to convince the good to give them something. The good does not need to ask evil for anything, because they already have it. So evil seeks to degrade those around them so there are always willing traders they can scam for their sustenance.

This is what has created the modern Cult of Compromise, it’s where the good are sustaining the life of evil as the good has been convinced that in so doing they are being “compassionate.” And since compassion is “good” then helping evil live is doing the right thing. That is by the definition established by the Cult of Compromise which was written by those who are most evil.

This is where my critics get upset with me—they require me to buy into their definition of compassion in order to force me to act in accordance with their needs, which is they want something from me. In the case of my community, they want me to pay taxes to a school I disagree with so they can have a more affordable form of education or day care for their children. If everyone in the community chips in some money, it brings down the cost of education for those who have children in the district. So those who desire public education require me to buy into their values of “compassion” and to compromise on my beliefs so that they can have what they desire—cheap education for their child.

But since I question the validity of public education and the costs of it, then I am dangerous to those who think with a looter mindset. The looter is one who wishes to take from me something I do not receive in equal value. So in the negotiation process, I will be giving more, so my full participation is required by the parasitic entity. That is why those who function this way are considered evil, even if they believe themselves to be good. Their definition of good has been determined by the gray color of compromise. Mine has been defined by the black and white definition of good and evil—contributor or parasitic entity.

This process of attempting to inject “compromise” into blurring the lines between good and evil, right and wrong started in this country a 100 years ago as progressivism came from politicians who adored the European concept. These progressive socialites looked down their nose at the simple mindedness of the typical American back then–the way the modern progressive does—by chastising Americans who think in black and white terms as simpletons, to discourage those simpletons from refusing to give the looters of life a seat at the table. It was these fools who created the Cult of Compromise and below you can see the result of their actions. The list you are about to see is a list of the various forms of taxation that has been imposed upon American society, all initiated with the looter mentality under the guise of “compromise.” As you read this list consider that all these taxes were created within the last 100 years. Think of all the hands that are in your pockets, in your every productive activity, in your goodness. Think how much good you could do in your life if you did not have to pay these taxes to the looters of the Cult of Compromise. Think how much more money you’d have for food, for savings, for your retirements, your kids, your grandkids, your mothers and fathers…….yourself!

Each of those taxes was the creation of a “compromise” between a “looter” and a “producer.” It is because of all that revenue generated in all those different ways that average people are taxed to the point of numbness. They don’t even realize the imposition upon their lives. They just assume that because they’ve been told in the Cult of Compromise that each of us were born into, that everything is gray, that the good needs the bad and the bad needs the good and everybody must help each other and pass no judgment. So nobody considers the reality, which is the bad needs the good, but the good do not need the bad. By helping the bad, the good become less so—they become gray—middle of the road.

And this is where President Obama found himself in South Korea. As a looter, he has nothing to offer to those around him. He does not even have thoughts of his own to contribute to the world. He must take information from others, then make those others believe that they shared the exchange due to the Cult of Compromise. Obama asks if Russia will give him “some space” in dealing with the missile issue of Europe while Obama runs for his reelection. Obama is asking that if the Russians leave him alone, then the President will be in a position to help the Russians once he’s elected back into office.

Obama is acting as the classic politician. He starts with nothing, but makes deals with all sides using compromise to give the appearance that he actually holds equal negotiating power. But in reality, he has nothing, and allows himself to be played at the expense of the American tax payer. Obama is a looter, a parasite. He requires that Russia give him something, “peace” so that he can then return the favor later, “a promise” once he’s president again. But if Obama does not become president again, what does he lose? Nothing. Russia losses because they delayed their aggression by request of a looter in hopes of getting a favor later. If Obama loses the election, Obama has lost nothing in his deal with Russia. But Russia losses opportunity.

This is why what Obama did feels wrong. This is how we ended up with so many taxes, because thousands and thousands of politicians over the last 100 years made deals much like what Obama is attempting to do with the Russians, and when it came time to pay for the favors, it was the tax payers who paid the money with the creation of a new tax. It’s for this reason that politicians think nothing of giving away billions of dollars to another country for aid, or for financial bailouts—because they don’t understand the value of the money or where it comes from. It’s also why a local school board makes deals with their labor unions that cost them to operate in a deficit by the millions hoping to use the Cult of Compromise to convince the tax payers to bail them out of the fix they made for themselves.

The Cult of Compromise is evil. It leads to degradation and is the antithesis of prosperity. Those who advocate compromise—who speak of seeing the world in shades of gray are simple looters who have accepted little bits of evil—of incorrect answers in favor of compassion. What they fail to realize is that those who contribute most, those who think, create, and produce must produce much, much more than they need to in order to carry all the looters on their backs. That is why we have so many taxes as shown above. Each one of those taxes was created by a deal like what Obama attempted to make with the Russians—a looter negotiation. And over time they have added up to the point where we all must work much harder for much longer to pay for all the debts the looters in the Cult of Compromise have negotiated away on our behalf. In the end, the looters lose nothing, but gain much, because they did nothing to make anything in the first place. It’s those who actually do things who carry the whole load. They are the ones who suffer because they are good, and trying to allow the truly bad to believe they are equals in a Cult of Compromise is the advancement of an evil that defy all those who think in shades of gray.
