Inception and Liberalism: America Awakes.

They Want You Sedated. Conservatism Won't Allow It.

Liberalism is Inception. And the American people are starting to wake up.

“Americans approval of how President Barack Obama is handling the nation’s economy has dropped to its lowest level of his presidency, according to a new national poll.”

Liberalism is predicated on the notion that we can suspend reality, create

The liberalism Leo espouses is being exposed. Soon, he'll be pointing fingers. Americans know the statist dream is a lie. They're waking up, and that's a good thing.

worlds in our own idealistic image, and live there for decades just like the main character Cobb thought he could do. Proponents of liberalism seek to convince you that entitlement spending and record deficits mean nothing; Iranian Holocaust-denying police state presidents can be reasoned with; prosperity can be had through excessive taxation, and a laundry list of other ideas that can only be implemented with a heavily sedated population.

At one point in Inception Mal says to Cobb, “You keep telling yourself what you know. But what do you believe? What do you feel?” Cobb’s response: “Guilt.” Likewise, liberalism requires adherents to partake in healthy doses of guilt, whether it be America’s founding or the discovery of inequalities of any kind (regardless of the reasons for their existence).

I propose liberals are lying to themselves when they try and convince us that America must be fundamentally changed because of the more sordid side of its past, that being slavery.  The idea that somehow the Founding Fathers got it all wrong, or that we should cast off the system of government set up by the Constitution because its ideals weren’t fully realized at its “inception” is ludicrous.

Western Civilization was the first culture to cast off the chains of slavery, and for that we should be proud.  It is the critics of Western Civilization whose guilt runs deep, and they delude themselves by denigrating the freest country in the history of the world.  Deep down, they know the seeds they’re trying to plant in your head are pipe dreams.  They’re visions that can only lead to disappointment and heartache, and yet they sell them anyway…

As you come into your idealogical own, realize that conservatism is the “totem” that can bring you home.  Conservatism is rooted in reality: Great societies are created through the hard work, blood, sweat, toil, and tears of entrepreneurs; dictators and despots back down when confronted by a morally self-assured nation that is willing to use force (when necessary) to defend its people and the principles that allow freedom to flourish; millions of everyday people engaging in voluntary transactions, in the aggregate, are much better stewards of their life than small elite groups of central planners trying to micromanage trillion dollar economies.

At one point in Inception, Cobb tells his protege that she should never “create from memory,” which is fitting because liberalism, as much as it claims to be a student of history, is not.  Liberal politicians always claim to be creating something new, but the reality is often something starkly different.  They don’t want you to know it because the stale, stodgy, sad mess that is statism is always a political loser.  And, just like the “subconscious” in Inception, the American people will attack it like white blood cells on a parasite when it becomes apparent.

I believe that is happening right now.  And I believe that, just like the movie, liberals are going to go for broke to keep you sedated and confused.

As Cobb says: “Rely on your training.” The Constitution is your training. Our founding is the “map” to get you through the maze. If we as a nation use it, we’ll be fine. If we don’t, get ready to find yourself in limbo.

Now go out there and buy yourself a ticket to Christopher Nolan’s newest classic.

Liberalism relies on a heavily sedated nation, one that ignores basic economics and puts faith in Holocaust denying nuts from Iran to do the right thing. Concentrate on your "training" (i.e., The Constitution) and you'll be okay.

Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Insipid Inception PR Clowns.

Have you seen the promotional campaign for Christopher Nolan’s new movie,

I only chuckle along to Ellen's inane diatribes because to do otherwise would expose me as the guy who makes a killing reading other people's thoughts without ever having an original one of my own.

Inception? The strategy is fittingly outside the box: Joseph Gordon-Levit shuffles and laughs along as Ellen Page shows the world what a self-righteous joke she is—when she should be promoting the movie.  Maybe it’s awkward for Joseph because the liberal costar sitting next to him revels in everything he claims is “distasteful” :

“I guess I was paranoid that people would treat me differently, or in an unfair way, because of my job. Even back then, I really didn’t like the whole idolatry that goes on with actors and found the celebrity thing distasteful. I still do.”

Hey Joseph, what do you think of Ellen Page maximizing her own piece of the idolatry pie by waxing political during an interview for Inception? Do you think Ellen comments in an “unfair way” when she links Dick Cheney to “fear that seems to be creating a lot of ignorance and thus passing on that fear to a lot of people and causing a lot of problems,”? (Apparently no one passed on the gift of eloquence to Ellen…) The last time I checked, Dick Cheney’s tenure as Vice President saw jihadi nutbags turn cross-continental airplanes loaded with jet fuel into giant missiles in downtown Manhattan (not too far away from where Joseph went to college, if I’m not mistaken). And the last time I checked, jihadi clowns were still trying to create a market for body-bag makers in downtown New York City—after the Hopeandchange Express rode into town. Ellen? She just sings woefully out of tune with Jason Cera and somehow thinks it gives her the intellectual license to lecture the rest of us in monotone liberal platitudes.

The funny thing about most celebrities is that without their memorized scripts, all their “deep” thoughts end up sounding like vague, meaningless drivel you might see on cardboard signs during local news coverage of a high school “walk out,” (or a Joseph Gordon-Levit movie).

Joseph may have been a star on the show 3rd Rock from the Sun, but grunting and huffing in agreement with a liberal actor who’s as smart as a box of rocks isn’t going to win him over new fans.  I’m going to see Inception because Christopher Nolan directed it, but I’ll think twice about contributing to the word of mouth because Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ellen Page want to act like partisan tools when they’re supposed to be selling me on the movie. Smooth move, geniuses.

I've adopted the smug monotone delivery when I'm preaching liberalism from the promo-circuit because some people forget that I'm a Canadian actor with zero public policy pronouncement credentials when I do so.
