Thoughts


From St Francis of Assisi

He who works with his hand is a labourer; he who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman; he who works with his hands, head and heart is an artist.

From Henry Hazlitt

If the welfarist-socialist-inflationist- trend of recent years continues in this country, the outlook is dark. It is a prospect of mounting taxation, snowballing expenditures, chronic deficits, a budget out of control, an accelerating rate of inflation of the kind endemic in Latin America (at least for the last generation), a collapse of the dollar, increasing world currency chaos, and more and more ruthless price, wage, and exchange controls, leading toward a regimented economy and dictatorship. And if this trend is interrupted temporarily, it may be by riots, assassinations, and a breakdown of law and order.– Henry Hazlitt

Courage does not mean that you do not get afraid.

Unfortunately, the population of these United States are being preyed upon by the criminals, the banksters, and our own unethical government leaders!! We are not a population to be educated and made godly; we are a population to be used and exploited to the greatest extent possible!! Welcome to subversion 101 " hooking the entire population on drugs and fantasy "!!

From Margaret Kimberley

Black voters in particular are so fearful of Republican victory that any Democratic Party policy, no matter how damaging to them, gets the go ahead.

From Laurence M. Vance

The United States troops are not defending anything. They are engaging in the offense: intervening, violating, invading, occupying, killing, maiming, destroying, and making widows and orphans.

From Dan T. Carter

Both George Wallace and Donald Trump are part of a long national history of scapegoating minorities: from the Irish, Catholics, Asians, Eastern European immigrants and Jews to Muslims and Latino immigrants. During times of insecurity, a sizable minority of Americans has been drawn to forceful figures who confidently promise the destruction of all enemies, real and imagined, allowing Americans to return to a past that never existed.

It is just another day in America, brought to you by an electronic news press that must stoop to the bizarre to gain web traffic.

My grandfather maintained the position with my mother, aunts, and grandmother that if I was old enough to ask the question then I was old enough for a truthful answer and I should not be lied to or given false illusions!!

I hope that this presidential election does not ignite a civil war within these United States!! Human frustration can turn very violent and violence does not bow to rational logic!!

From Bill C. Davis

Donald Trump has given the United States a Great Gift! What he has drawn to the surface are various toxins isolated in a boil ready to burst. To call Trump toxic is not the most important observation - the toxicity and the people he has invited to the surface for all to see - that is the best thing he has done for the country he loves.

From Lucia Graves

The beauty and the horror of Donald Trump is that he tells people what he thinks they want to hear, and his genius is knowing precisely what that is. He has done a better job of reading the GOP base than anyone in the party and, ever the salesman, he is selling himself in the image of his electorates values.

Trumps populist message on the economy, trade deals and national security (he was against the Iraq war and appears to be largely non-interventionist) coupled with a generous dose of racism, sexism, and xenophobia is the most accurate portrait we have of what Republican voters actually think, feel and want to see represented. And many in the Republican leadership, perhaps sensing that this is a losing general election strategy, are by turns discouraged and embarrassed.

From Natan Sharansky

The moment you give people a little bit of freedom, they want it all; the moment the virus of freedom is set loose, there is no way back.

From Tim O Brien

A true war story is never moral. It does not instruct, nor encourage virtue, nor suggest models of proper human behavior, nor restrain men from doing the things men have always done. If at the end of a war story you feel that some small bit of rectitude has been salvaged from the larger waste, then you have been made the victim of a very old and terrible lie.

Despotism may govern without faith, but Liberty cannot.
