"Ineptocracy" Is A Word

What Did He Just Say?

What's In A Word? Try Our Nation's Future...

An attorney friend of mine sent me a link to check this word out to see if there is something I could do with it and relate it to the political world. I'm sure it was with Obama, Pelosi, Reid and that gang in mind when it was sent. So straight out of the Urban Dictionary there appears the word "Ineptocracy." It has a sponge like quality to it and also appears to be firmly rooted in the world of social welfare where life is beautiful all the time because the inhabitants rely on the rest of us for their sustenance and subsistence.

In practical application it appears to support this oft quoted paragraph:

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy."

The problem in my mind centers around the fact that the cited "majority" elects people who are supposed to be guardians of the public trust and monies. Think about that for a moment.

You Thinking? Or Are You Beyond That?

So lets put some definition to this straight out of the Urban Dictionary. Google is an excellent tool to further research this subject. It is also used for your benefit in a simple sentence.

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers. syn-socialism. Unless we can get Obama out of the White House, this country is headed for ineptocracy.

The economic crisis in Greece, Spain and creeping throughout the Eurozone are classic example of the dangers of ineptocracy. The Occupy Movement ascribes to this system of government as do welfare queens and various other sorts of societal riff-raff.

Obama Calls It "Redistribution Of Wealth"

In the coining of new words there is the always the root of the word. Here's how Merriam-Webster defines inept:

Definition of INEPT

1: lacking in fitness or aptitude: unfit <inept at sports>2: lacking sense or reason : foolish 3: not suitable to the time, place, or occasion : inappropriate often to an absurd degree <an inept metaphor>4: generally incompetent : bungling <inept leadership>— in·ept·ly adverbin·ept·ness noun

When I read that I had a visual image appear to me of one Crazy Uncle Joe Biden.

He Could Be The Poster Child For Inept

There are those within our society that genuinely need help - the aged, thesave disabled, the temporarily unemployed, the mentally ill. and I'm sure you could add to the list. Of the 47% who pay no income taxes (the figure may be higher) that segment of the population is probably quite small.

Then we have Team Obama who was supposedly elected to fix the economy. Their idea of fixing it was to steal trillions of dollars, currently $5.3 trillion and counting, from the private sector and move it to the government sphere where nothing is produced. I call it "Trickle Down Government." You call it what you want. It makes people dependent on the government and is resulting in an ever increasing national debt. I keep asking this question of liberals and not getting an answer. But I will try it again. Who do you expect to repay this legalized form of theft from future generations of Americans? I am morally against the practice myself.

But what I see going on in segments of society should sound alarm bells in any intelligent person's head. This woman has figured out that her freebies are attached to Barack Obama and she worships him. I offer one example.

Obama Phones And Obama Bucks What More Can A Welfare Queen Want? Oh I forgot! A Trickle Me Obama.

There is enough blame to go around for this nation's growing ineptocracy. Blame, Bush, blame Obama, blame this and that but first and foremost we need to take a hard look at ourselves and place some blame there. There should be enough intelligent people who know the value of hard work to correct the situation at the ballot box.

Why do people keep electing the same bad news bears over and over again to go back up to Washington DC, sit on their duffs for decades on end and continue to pick their pockets and those of their heirs? Something just isn't right with that picture. Many times it is based upon a person having a (D) or a (R) by their name which is a form of insanity. Can't you think for yourself? The whole idea that they are doing the will of the people has been turned on its ear if you sit back and look at what the heck is going on up there in the land where no one wants a real job. We're paying them big bucks to lead our nation down the wrong path. They know that and so should you. In closing I offer you the classic Obama Mama.

The Mental Attitude Of An Ineptocrat...

Amazing how the coining of one new word begets other new words - Ineptocrat. One who wants something for nothing because they feel entitled to it. If they can't get it they will try to find a way to elect it. Synonymous with Democrat. If the shoe fits then wear it.

A new word that sums everything up as perfectly as your paragraph on blame. And yes, we the people need to accept some of the blame for continuing to vote these inept people into power time after time. Time to stop the cycle.

Great hub.. It's so true and so sad because no matter how hard we try there will always be people who just don't give a damn. I meet them every single day. Up, awesome, interesting and useful in the right hands.

It is a scary thought that anyone with that level of intelligence will be allowed to vote. I love the new word - ineptocracy . It is such a fitting description of our government today. Excellent hub.

Pamela - You'll notice that people of the liberal persuasion buck like a bronco when the mention of devising a simple, and I mean simple, test be administered prior to issuing a voter ID card. You'd think we are asking that they produce an official photo ID card at the polling place.

No man ever got rich stealing from himself and no nation of people ever became better off as a function of wealth redistribution. It is all a foundation lies designed to do nothing more than create an aura of Utopian belief that things will improve without any effort on your part. Obama is buying votes with taxpayer dollars and the bill is getting larger by the day. Is this the way you want your tax-dollars spent? Clearly, we must have a change. ~WB

Love Tolstoi.

Frog Prince - great hub.

I read this and re-read a few other hubs, and went tearing into my desk full of 'Juanita un-published' looking for a poem I wrote one weekend after I had been played for a fool, in a dishonest fool's game, in corporate America - a very long time ago. Once you WORK your way up, then the more experienced fools get to exploit you. But, I realized then, that I would rather be me, being valuable because of what I do, than being valuable in the corporate game of - - - they each have the rotten goods on each other - and the smiling blackmail game they play with each other each day insured my job security.

That corporate game I would watch at the top every day made me realize that I, and a few others, were the ones that were allowed to reach the top because all those fools needed someone who actually knew how to make it all work. Our government is exactly the same. Except these old fools forgot to keep around a fair amount of 'doers' to keep it all working. Now, we are watching the evil puppet-masters, playing the government fools to their own demise - and unfortunately the demise of this Republic. . . . unless we stop them with our positive brain power. Violence will not handle this . . . only enough good and honorable brainpower coming together to overcome pure evil. If not, these old fools better hope they don't kill all the people who know how to make it work.

I didn't read Plato until after I started having memory problems. It is in there, I just don't have ready access. I recognized it, but had to look up who said it. :) Still having wonderful and good days, so this is just how it is, and that is okay.

Ineptocracy is the perfect word to describe the present administration, Jim, and it also applies to all voters who believe they are entitled to government largesse without earning it.

drbj - Check out these Obama supporters on Twitter. And we want a person like Obama who encourages this sort of class warfare where? Maybe back in Chicago where he came from.

There is a lot of truth that liberty oriented societies are susceptible to collapse due to the plutocracy they most always eventually engender. The solution is decentralization of power, especially in the vertical sense. Were the federal government truly to limit its authority to Article 1 Section 8 enumerated powers (services for the states and people that bear a material nexus to international matters), all purely domestic rule-making would by necessity devolve to the states and municipalities, where the people have much greater access to and influence over their elected officials. Plutocracy at the state and city level would of course increase, but there would be a far greater chance of blunting its effects through citizen activism than in the federal case. But this more sane state of affairs can never come about until the federal government excepts that purely domestic law is ultra vires with respect to conventional federal legislation and its associated enforcement and judicial purview. In other words, 120 years of Tenth Amendment breaking by all three branches of federal government would have to be defunded and vacated. All conventional domestic federal law, regulation, and court decisions not pursuant to the implementation of Article 1 Section 8 enumerated federal powers would have to be rescinded. The greatest bulwark against plutocracy is atomism - get the rule-makers close enough to People, and plutocracy can largely be blunted, if the People are sufficiently activist. The feds of course would hate this regimen, as it would vastly reduce their current power and ability to attract campaign money (bribes in exchange for laws that benefit the donors). But truth be told, most existing powers exercised by the feds are not constitutionally enumerated powers, but are in fact powers and freedoms illegally usurped from the states, townships, and people.

The Constitution, correctly applied, is based on the assumption that most of us are capable of self-governing. Self-governing is only possible when the society adheres to a very strong value / moral / ethical system. Our government began with the value system based on the Judeo-Christian foundation. There can be no separation of government and our Judeo-Christian foundation, in that those elected to office must live by the Judeo-Christian value system in their personal and professional lives, even if they are not Christians or Jews. When one sits in the Judge's seat, or on Congress, or in the White House they cannot check America's founding value system at the door before they begin their work.
