Thoughts


From Ms Camille Paglia

A vote for Bernie Sanders is a vote against the machine, the obscenely money-mad and soulless juggernaut that the Democratic Party has become. Perhaps there was a time, during the Hubert Humphrey era, when Democrats could claim to be populists, alive to the needs and concerns of working-class people. But the party has become the playground of white, upper-middle-class professionals with elite-school degrees and me-first values. These liberal poseurs mouth racial and ethnic platitudes, acquired like trophy kills at their p.c. campuses, but every word rings hollow, because it is based on condescension, a patronizing projection of victimhood onto those outside their privileged circle. There is no better example of this arrogant class bias than Wellesley grad Hillary Clinton lapsing into her mush-mouthed, Southern-fried dialect when addressing African-American audiences.

From Mario Savio

There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart that you can not take part! You can not even passively take part! And you have got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you have got to make it stop!

From James Jackson

We must confine ourselves to the powers described in the Constitution, and the moment we pass it, we take an arbitrary stride towards a despotic Government.

By the time November comes around will any republican be able to win the presidency?? If Hillary crashes can Bernie Sanders win the general election?? A pragmatist might ask if these United States will still exist on election day!! This political chaos just might end these United States of America!!

From John Patric

A person should seek to reduce, by whatever peaceful means his ingenuity may devise, the power of government - any government - to tell him what to do.

From Dietrich Bonhoeffer

We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice, we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself.

People act like this country is invincible when it cannot even defeat the Afghan version of the Beverly Hillbillies. There is probably two or more Mullah Omar Clampetts still running around over there spiriting turncoat gunmen into United States military headquarters over there to kill off a few American officers. Wow, great allies, what? And so you will find such loyal allies over in Syria, will you? Oh, silly me! That is who became ISIS!

Right, so let us now risk a nuclear war with the Russians who have just come right out and used the phrase - WORLD WAR - to warn us to mind our own business.-Jack Perry-Syria: Turning over the death card

More From Ludwig von Mises

It is an established fact that alcoholism, cocainism, and morphinism are deadly enemies of life, of health, and of the capacity for work and enjoyment; and a utilitarian must therefore consider them as vices. But this is far from demonstrating that the authorities must interpose to suppress these vices by commercial prohibitions, nor is it by any means evident that such intervention on the part of the government is really capable of suppressing them or that, even if this end could be attained, it might not therewith open up a Pandoras box of other dangers, no less mischievous than alcoholism and morphinism.

From Mohandas Gandhi

No good act can produce an evil result. evil means, even for a good end, produce evil results.

From John W. Whitehead

The United States government has become particularly intolerant of speech that challenges the governments power, reveals the governments corruption, exposes the governments lies, and encourages the citizenry to push back against the governments many injustices.

From Albert Einstein

The strength of the United States Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it. Only if every single citizen feels duty bound to do his share in this defense are the constitutional rights secure.

From Ms Erica Garner

Black Americans - all Americans - need a leader with a record that speaks for itself. And to me, it is clear. Of all the presidential candidates, Sen. Bernie Sanders is our strongest ally.-Ms Erica Garner whose father was unjustly killed by Staten Island Police

From United States Senator Elizabeth Warren

Justice cannot mean a prison sentence for a teenager who steals a car, but nothing more than a sideways glance at a Chief Executive Officer who quietly engineers the theft of billions of dollars.

From Alexis de Tocqueville

Referring to democracy, "The will of men is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided. Men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence. It does not tryannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, until each nation is reduced to be nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd."

More From Paul Craig Roberts

In the United States the rule of law, and with it liberty, have been lost. With few exceptions, Americans are too ignorant and unconcerned to do anything about it. The longer the rule of law is set aside, the more difficult it is to reestablish it. Sooner or later the rule of law ceases even as a memory. No candidate in the upcoming election has made the rule of law an issue.

Americans have become a small-minded divided people, ruled by petty hatreds, who are easily set against one another and against other peoples by their rulers.
