Is Socialism Good For America?!

Is Socialism Good For America?!



Now for a real education about socialism, watch Ben Shapiro tell us why it is immoral and evil!

If we cannot explain why this is the truth, we are part of America’s great undoing.

Shapiro makes us put our “thinking caps” on!

Why Not the Popular Vote?

June 14, 2018

Why Not the Popular Vote?

America’s Founding Fathers knew the popular vote alone would too easily lapse into the abuse of minorities by the majority. This has occurred  in simple democracies throughout history.

Therefore they designed the poorly understood, but essential Electoral College for America.

I recently had a debate with a smart individual who appeared to have no understanding of the value of the Electoral College. Therefore, I am posting this primer on this topic as evidence of the genius of our Founding Fathers and the benefits of the Electoral College to America.

Please see this very good explanation:

Will Liberals Let Us Institutionalize The Dangerously Mentally Ill? No.

February 19, 2018

Will Liberals Let Us Institutionalize The Dangerously Mentally Ill?   No.

Well, there has been another mass killing at a school and it makes me want to vomit.

The following is a republication on this horrifying topic. I published it on my blog on 9/20/13, 10/2/15, and now on this day, 2/19/18.

Why publish the same article three times? First, not everyone read  my articles on mass shootings when they have been published in the past. Second, I can’t really think of anything new to say about these murderous events that I, and others, have not already said!

Please consider the following: It is meant to address all such shootings; past, present and, so sadly, the ones yet to come.


I do not know if this guy was a Islamic Terrorist, or a severely mentally ill man on the loose. Someone has reported that he had ties to a white supremacist group, though the logical connection from there to this shooting is yet unexplained.

Whatever is the case, of course Obama immediately blamed guns. It is essential for him to do so because a comprehensive and intelligent analysis of the many real and interacting causes of America’s tragic decline into behavioral chaos will go straight to his own liberal/progressive ideology. An ideology that has steady grown in America over the past decades and has culminated in his own Presidential Marxist regime, as well as our current bloated, ineffectual and corrupted system of government.

The result of this spiritual/political/psychological/sociological spiral of death is  modern America: A stunningly diminished and grotesque shadow of its former self.

If you have read my other blogs on America’s decline, you will know exactly what I am referring to. There are now over 1200 (currently nearly 1700) of my articles. Please enter any search term: Mass Murder, America’s Decline, Socialists, Progressives, etc., and see the truth, as best I can know it. My search box is on the upper right side of this page.

God’s Blessings to you and your loved ones. Please vote and remonstrate with your political  representatives accordingly.

Now, please see my blog, originally published on 9/20/13, below.

As a psychologist, with over 40 years of experience, I endorse Ann Coulter’s article below. She speaks the truth on this issue.

Please search my site for former blogs on the “mentally Ill”. simply enter that term in the search box to the upper right and click return.

Thanks to Joe Grunert for forwarding  Ann Coulter’s article to me. Please take time to read it.

VTM, 9/20/13 

There’s been another mass shooting by a crazy person, and liberals still refuse to consider institutionalizing the dangerous mentally ill.   The man who shot up the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, Aaron Alexis, heard voices speaking to him through the walls. He thought people were following him. He believed microwave ovens were sending vibrations through his body. There are also reports that Alexis believed the Obamacare exchanges were ready to go.  

Anyone see any bright red flags of paranoid schizophrenia? (Either that, or Obama’s NSA is way better than we thought!)   But Alexis couldn’t be institutionalized because the left has officially certified the mentally ill as “victims,” and once you’re a victim, all that matters is that you not be “stigmatized.”

But here’s the problem: Coddling the mentally ill isn’t even helping the mentally ill. Ask the sisters of crazy homeless woman “Billie Boggs” how grateful they were to the ACLU for keeping Boggs living on the streets of New York City. Ask the parents of Aaron Alexis, James Holmes (Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooter), Jared Loughner (Tucson, Ariz., mall shooter) or Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech shooter) how happy they are that their sons weren’t institutionalized.  

Tellingly, throughout the last three decades, the overall homicide rate has been in free fall, thanks to Republican crime policies, from 10 per 100,000 in 1980 to 4 per 100,000 today. (You might even call them “common sense” crime policies.) But the number of mass shootings has skyrocketed from 4 per year, between 1900 and 1970, to 29 per year since then.   Something seems to have gone horribly wrong right around 1970. What could it be? Was it the introduction of bell-bottoms?  

That date happens to correlate precisely with when the country began throwing the mentally ill out of institutions in 1969. Your memory of there not being as many mass murders a few decades ago is correct. Your memory of there not being as many homeless people a few decades ago is also correct.   But liberals won’t allow the dangerous mentally ill to be committed to institutions against their will. (The threat of commitment is very persuasive in getting disturbed individuals to take their medicine.) Something in liberals’ genetic makeup compels them to attack civilization, for example, by defending the right of dangerous psychotics to refuse treatment and then representing them in court after they commit murder.  Liberals won’t even agree to take the most basic steps to prevent psychotics from purchasing guns — yes, GUNS! — because to allow the release of mental health information would be “stigmatizing.” We’re not talking about anorexic girls here. We just need shrinks to tell us if potential gun purchasers are paranoid schizophrenics.  

The disastrous consequences of the deinstitutionalization movement is described in E. Fuller Torrey’s book, “The Insanity Offense: How America’s Failure to Treat the Seriously Mentally Ill Endangers Its Citizens.” Torrey’s book reads like a compendium of America’s most heinous murders since the early ’70s — all of which could have been stopped with involuntary commitment laws, and none of which could have been stopped even with a complete gun ban.   Here are a few:   — “Mary Maloney had decapitated her infant daughter and year-old son. Her husband had tried to have her psychiatrically hospitalized prior to the crime, but she had not met the (legal) criteria for dangerousness.” — “Charles Soper had killed his wife, three children, and himself two weeks after being discharged from Camarillo State Hospital because he failed to qualify as ‘imminently dangerous.'” — “In April 1973… Edmund Kemper (who had been released from a mental hospital a few years earlier when the deinstitutionalization act became law) had been arrested after he bludgeoned his mother to death, then strangled her friend who came to visit. Kemper was also charged with the murders of six female hitchhikers.” Kemper had originally been institutionalized after murdering his grandparents at age 15 because “he tired of their company.”  

In 1972 and 1973, paranoid schizophrenic Herb Mullin went on a killing spree in California that left 13 dead, including a 72-year-old World War I veteran, a college coed, four teenaged campers and a mother with her two little boys, murdered as they played with marbles.   Mullin killed his victims with a baseball bat, knives, his fists, as well as with guns. How’s your “high-capacity” magazine ban going to stop that, Democrats? How would piling on yet more gun control laws have helped the priest whom Herb Mullin beat, kicked and stabbed to death?   What about the elderly boarders that Dorothea Puente — diagnosed with schizophrenia — poisoned and buried in her backyard?   What additional gun restrictions would have helped the group of bicyclists Linda Scates intentionally drove her car into because voices were telling her to “kill the demons”?  

In the decades since the deinstitutionalization movement began, more and more people kept being killed as a result of that movement — including the deinstitutionalized themselves. According to Torrey, between 1970 and 2004, the mentally ill were responsible for at least 4,700 murders in California.   Increasing government spending on mental health programs is not going to stop the mentally ill from committing murder. Like liberals, these are people too sick even to know they need help. As Herschel Hardin, whose son was schizophrenic, wrote in the Vancouver Sun: “If you think you are Jesus Christ or an avenging angel, you are not likely to agree that you need to go to the hospital.”   Liberals will pretend to have missed the news that the Washington Navy Yard shooter was a paranoid schizophrenic. They refuse to acknowledge that the mass murder problem — as well as the homeless problem — only began after crazy people were thrown out of institutions in the 1970s. They tell us crapping in your pants on a New York City sidewalk is a “civil right.” They say that haranguing passersby on the street about your persecution by various movie stars is a form of “free speech.”   Only after a mass murder committed by a psychotic with a firearm do liberals spring to life and suggest a solution: Take away everyone’s guns.   Taking guns away from the mentally stable only makes us less safe: Even psychotics know enough to keep choosing “Gun-Free Zones” for their mass murders.

If Americans are serious about preventing massacres like the ones at the Washington Navy Yard, Newtown, Tucson, Aurora and Virginia Tech, it’s time to review our civil commitment laws.  

After this latest shooting, will the left finally let us do something about the dangerously mentally ill?

Trump’s Contract With America!

October 30, 2016

Trump’s Contract With America!
Thanks to patriot Lee Hornack for sending this to me.
If you are a patriotic Republican, Democrat, Independent, or Libertarian the following document has not been presented for your evaluation by the main-stream media. 
I believe that an objective analysis of this document will reveal that it can begin to turn-the-tide against a great many of the political, economic and social factors that are driving Americas epic and swift decline.
I beg you to  study this contract and then, please forward it to everyone you know!
V. Thomas Mawhinney, 10/30/16


As usual this event was not covered by the liberal media and his contract cannot be found in the major newspapers.  Here is Donald Trump’s pledge to the American people:
What follows is my 100-day action plan to Make America Great Again.  It is a contract between myself and the American voter – and begins with restoring honesty, accountability and change to Washington  
Therefore, on the first day of my term of office, my administration will immediately pursue the following six measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC: 
●       FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress; 
●       SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health); 
●       THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated; 
●       FOURTH, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service;  
●       FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government; 
●       SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections. 
On the same day, I will begin taking the following 7 actions to protect American workers: 
•        FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205  
•        SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership
•        THIRD, I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator
•        FOURTH, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately
•        FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of jobproducing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
•        SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward
•        SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure  
Additionally, on the first day, I will take the following five actions to restore security and the constitutional rule of law: 
•        FIRST, cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama 
•        SECOND, begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States
•        THIRD, cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities
•        FOURTH, begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back
•        FIFTH, suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur.  All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.
Next, I will work with Congress to introduce the following broader legislative measures and fight for their passage within the first 100 days of my Administration: 
1.    Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act. An economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy.  The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut.  The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified.   The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate. 
2.    End The Offshoring Act Establishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free. 
1.      American Energy & Infrastructure Act.  Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years.  It is revenue neutral. 
2.      School Choice And Education Opportunity Act. Redirects education dollars to gives parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice.  Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities.  It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable. 
3.      Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act. Fully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds.  Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications. 
4.      Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act. Allows Americans to deduct childcare and elder care from their taxes, incentivizes employers to provide on-side childcare services, and creates tax-free Dependent Care Savings Accounts for both young and elderly dependents, with matching contributions for low-income families. 
5.      End Illegal Immigration Act  Fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for overstaying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first. 
6.      Restoring Community Safety Act.  Reduces surging crime, drugs and violence by creating a Task Force On Violent Crime and increasing funding for programs that train and assist local police; increases resources for federal law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to dismantle criminal gangs and put violent offenders behind bars. 
7.      Restoring National Security Act. Rebuilds our military by eliminating the defense sequester and expanding military investment; provides Veterans with the ability to receive public VA treatment or attend the private doctor of their choice; protects our vital infrastructure from cyber-attack; establishes new screening procedures for immigration to ensure those who are admitted to our country support our people and our values 
8.      Clean up Corruption in Washington Act. Enacts new ethics reforms to Drain the Swamp and reduce the corrupting influence of special interests on our politics. 
On November 8th, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our economy, security to our communities, and honesty to our government. 
This is my pledge to you…… 
And if we follow these steps, we will once more have a government of, by and for the people. 


Our Wonderful Son Has Passed

April 21, 2016

Our Wonderful Son Has Passed

Our beloved son, Sean Thomas, passed away on Friday April 15. He suffered an abdominal aneurysm and was gone in a matter of seconds.

Sean’s three children were with him when he passed away and the shock and trauma of it is now settling down, somewhat, for them and us. We are so relieved to know that he did not suffer badly in his passing.

Our own great sadness will diminish in time, but we know there will always be transient sadness’s that will come to visit us.

My dear mother sometimes warned me that “life is not a bowl of cherries”. She also taught that life was sometimes “unfair”. Of course, my mother was telling me the truth…as always.

As you can tell from the following, we were so very proud of our Sean and we loved him more than we can express.

We hope you will remember that your friends and loved one’s can be gone in a blink of the eye, when you least expect it.  We hope you will show and express your love to them at every opportunity.

God’s Blessings to you and all who you love.


Sean Thomas Mawhinney, 46, of South Bend, IN passed away on Friday, April 15, 2016 in his home surrounded by his children. Sean was a proud Graduate of Ball State University and was a successful business manager and sales associate with an industrial supply company.

Most of all, Sean was dedicated to God, his three children, his family and many friends. Sean loved people and he continuously demonstrated this with words and actions. A person’s race, creed, age, education or wealth did not matter. If someone was a good person, with a “good heart”, they could be his friend. He loved to laugh with everyone. He enjoyed Seinfeld, “Survivor”, history, and all genres of music (particularly the “Grateful Dead”).

Sean was big, strong, intellectually curious and persuasive. He would defend right against wrong when necessary. He was soft-hearted and caring to those in need. Sean loved all sports, especially Notre Dame Football and he was a tough guard on the Adams high school football team. He loved golf, sailing, fishing, campfires, going “Up-North”, birds and their songs, snakes, pollywogs, crayfish—nearly all of God’s creatures. He literally would not hurt a fly.

Sean’s greatest gift to all of us was his and Lori’s three wonderful children, Kelin, Camren and Macey; they were the main focus of his life. He is now with God, and continues to live through his children, loved ones and friends. Our Sean would tell you, “it’s all good”.

Below is a photograph of our Sean happily waving the peace-sign from our Sally Louise; close on the wind and moving swiftly.

Fare you well, our beloved Son.

Tom, Sally  and Brian Mawhinney, 4/21/16

A Real vs. Fake Commander-in-Chief!

April 15, 2016

A Real vs. Fake Commander-in-Chief!

Feast your eyes on a real Commander-in-Chief!

Now, view America’s fake Commander-in-Chief in action.
   These are the images and actions of our Commander-in-Socialist/Marxist Chief Traitor who despises our military and has has decimated it to Pre-WW II levels of readiness and capability. Obama has engineered all of this at a time of rising threats from North Korea, Russia, Iran and the ongoing WWIII against ISIS.  His goal was to “Transform” (read DESTROY) America and he has nearly done so.
    Obama made a Marine hold an umbrella over his head.  Obama showed no respect to this man or his uniform.


Obama disgracefully saluted a Marine with Coffee cup in hand


On August 5th 2014 Barack Obama played a game of golf and did not attend the funeral of Major General Harold Greene. General Greene was the highest ranking officer to be killed in combat since the Vietnam war.


Obama did not salute a Marine as he got onto Marine One. The pilot appeared to remind him to do so. Obama never saluted the Marine, but went back and shook his hand.


    If you are not yet convinced of Obama’s great disrespect of America’s military, please review the many things that his policies have actually accomplished  in his quest to destroy America’s military.
   America is now in enmeshed in WWIII and there is no way-out but to reconstruct our once unparalleled military, as well as our American social and economic infrastructure that supports it.
   Wake-Up America! 
   Vote for very strong Constitutional Conservatives in all upcoming elections. Fail in this and what was once known as Western Civilization, along with its American pinnacle, will fade to history.
   Fail to do this and there will certainly be catastrophic consequences for you and your loved ones.

Islam in Sweden: Another Disaster

January 11, 2016

Islam in Sweden: Another Disaster

Islam’s damage to Sweden is much worse than you think.

Read the following article and watch the videos to begin to understand what bringing a Third-World, woman and Infidel hating culture into a modern culture can do to degrade and stress the host socioculture. The disaster is greatly intensified when the host culture is a progressive culture, who’s government is organized around propaganda in the form of bald-faced lies and deceptions. Such as increasingly is the case in America.

Wake-Up America!

Wake-Up to the world-wide failures of progressivism/socialism, irrational combinations of multiculturalism, and Islamic Jihad, of both the violent and stealth varieties.

Damn-Fool America: Going To Pot!

October 7, 2015

Damn-Fool America: Going To Pot!

I recently attended a workshop for psychologists and other therapists. The workshop was not specifically about the effects of drugs, but the discussion  happened upon the matter of marijuana use by clients and various States legalizing marijuana for recreational use.

I expressed my disapproval of the legalization of pot and my position was not popular. I do not care.

The reasons for my grave concern are that legalized pot is increasingly trafficked to nearby states, traffic violations and accidents involving pot are increasing, there have been deaths to adults and children stoned on pot, and much more. I also pointed out that contrary to common belief, marijuana can be very addictive.

The leader of the workshop stated that pot is psychologically addictive, but it was not physiologically addictive. I politely informed this person that this was an older finding, but contemporary research has concluded that pot can be highly addictive to many. This is especially true of the pot containing higher levels of THC, now refined and extracted from the marijuana plant and more commonly for sale in States where it is legalized.

Of course elementary principles of economics are involved. As with any other business, competition leads to increased quantities and qualities of the particular commodity that is for sale. Supply and demand principles absolutely apply.

Of course, this is no different for pot sales…particularly when legalized and produced by large technological business enterprises.

Another overlooked fact is that our governments, at all levels, (once guardians of America’s population’s physical, mental, and behavioral health) are now in the business of addicting its citizens in order to make money. These governmentally “peddled” addictions are to activities and substances that our more conservative and traditional governments, for very good reasons,  once called “vices” and outlawed.

This governmental practice started in the 1960’s with the legalization of pornography. It continued later with the legalization of Gambling. Now we are seeing the beginnings of the legalization of marijuana. We can expect more the same, including other drugs as well as prostitution.

All of this nets the Governments (local, state and federal), massive new sources of tax revenues. Once this process starts, businesses, municipalities and states are forced to market these “products” or lose revenues to those who are nearby that do. The mantra is “why should we let them take our potential customers and money when we can keep it all at home“!

In this way unregulated capitalism in vice spreads through America like wild-fire. Once “the genie is out of the bottle”, it is near impossible to put it back in. Everyone, at all levels, becomes financially addicted to the addictions.

It is interesting that governments are now increasingly bankrupt at the same time they are shamelessly and abusively foraging for ways to wring increased tax revenues from its businesses and citizens.

You should also note that governments are shamelessly foraging for ways to save money. America’s legalization of abortion and its increasing legalization (state by state), of the harvesting and selling of aborted body parts and the growth  of assisted suicide are prime examples of short-term cost savings. The long-term consequences will be the destruction of our socioculture.

I have digressed slightly, so you might see and understand the sociocultural consequences of supporting America’s modern unprincipled and predatory progressive/Marxist governments. Our governments propagandizes their addictive population-traps as “true freedom for its citizens“, when inf fact it is the purposeful addiction and enslavement of Americans to our greatest biological, psychological, and social weaknesses.

Please think about all of this.

My wonderful parents always taught me to tell the truth, even if it would get me in trouble. Believe me. Or, show me the evidence that I am wrong.

I hope you will educate yourselves to the new research-based reality of the damages of marijuana consumption.

A nation of pot-heads, combined with alcohol and other illegal drugs, will spell a terrible disaster for America.

See for yourself!
