Thoughts


From John Carpenter

"I am disgusted by what we have become in America. I truly believe there is brain death in this country. Everything we see is designed to sell us something. The only thing they want to do is take our money."

From Beverly Blanchard

Although there has been a significant amount of emphasis on the Law of Attraction, I believe the Law of Assumption is really the cornerstone in creating your reality. Under the Law of Assumption, the world that you see depends not so much as what is there but the assumptions you make when you look at it. Your assumptions are that which you believe, feel, think and consent to.

Wisdom From Anonymous

The world will soon wake up to the reality that everyone is broke and can collect nothing from the bankrupt, who are owed unlimited amounts by the insolvent, who are attempting to make late payments on a bank holiday in the wrong country, with an unacceptable currency, against defaulted collateral, of which nobody is sure who holds title.

From Thomas Gordon

Let us therefore, without regarding the ridiculous, narrow, and dishonest notions of selfish and inconsistent men, who say and do contradictory things, make general liberty the interest and choice, as it is certainly the right of all mankind; and brand those as enemies to human society, who are enemies to equal and impartial liberty.

From Delaware Senator Ted Kaufman

"People know that if they rob a bank they will go to jail; Bankers should know that if they rob people they will go to jail too."

More From Thomas Paine

"O ye that love mankind! Ye that dare oppose not only the tyranny but the tyrant, stand forth! Every spot of the old world is overrun with oppression. Freedom hath been hunted round the globe. Asia and Africa have long expelled her. Europe regards her like a stranger and England hath given her warning to depart. O! receive the fugitive and prepare in time an asylum for mankind."

From Herbert Spencer

What, then, do they want a government for? Not to regulate commerce; not to educate the people; not to teach religion, not to administer charity; not to make roads and railways; but simply to defend the natural rights of man -- to protect person and property -- to prevent the aggressions of the powerful upon the weak -- in a word, to Administer Justice. This is the natural, the original, office of a government. It was not intended to do less: it ought not to be allowed to do more.

From Dylan Charles

Awareness is the condition of alertness, of having knowledge or of being conscious. It requires attention and involvement, and a willingness to pursue connections between ideas and events. It is an example of personal responsibility and a cultivated skill that reflects self-control and care.

From Ted Galen Carpenter

The folly of alcohol prohibition was confined to the United States. Thanks largely to Washingtons pressure - drug prohibition is a global folly. We should learn from history and do more than make modest shifts in anti-drug strategies. We need to bite the bullet, accepting the reality that our second fling with prohibition has not worked any better than the first.

From Gary North

"Some bureaucrat will eventually enforce a regulation to the point of utter imbecility."

More From Murray N. Rothbard

For a hundred years, American foreign policy has been set on a course of global intervention, ostensibly on behalf of "making the world safe for democracy", and of securing and expanding the "free world." Now, a hundred years later, the world - and the United States - manifestly are far less free than when we began to launch our global Crusades; and dictatorships abound everywhere. Surely, at the very least, we must have been doing something wrong. Indeed, that wrong is the very policy of global intervention itself.

From Jacob G. Hornberger

From the standpoint of government officials, one of the greatest things about a highly regulated economy, banking system, and healthcare system, as well as a complex tax system, is that it provides officials with the ability to prosecute businessmen, bankers, physicians, and others whenever they get out of line. In that way, officials can claim that they are not going after people for criticizing the government or for challenging the system but instead for real criminal offenses.

From Charlotte Twight

Growing Federal Power -- driven by legislation, validated by Supreme Court decisions, and accelerated by presidential ambition -- has eroded the rule
of law in our nation, leaving almost no activity that the central government
cannot at its discretion, regulate, manipulate, or prohibit. A constitutional counterrevolution has occurred in America-one so profound that few today can imagine Americans free of dependence on government.

From Richard M. Nixon

"When the president does it, that means that it is not illegal."

And More From Thomas Paine

We still find the greedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry, and grasping at the spoil of the multitude. Invention is continually exercised to furnish new pretenses for revenue and taxation. It watches prosperity as its prey and permits none to escape without a tribute.
