Thoughts


From Doug Carkuff

Our Leaders tend to be primarily concerned with how they feel about
Their Supposed Altruism rather than the Actual Consequences Of Their
Initiatives. There are Multitudes of Examples of the Way the Good
Intentions of Those who Think that They Know Best How To Arrange Society
Through Supposedly Progressive Legislation Has Led To The Suffering Of
Those It Is Intended To Help. The List Is Really Endless.

More Wisdom From Ludwig von Mises

In Power.

From The Website Of Michael Gaddy

Supporting the troops who are waging an unconstitutional war, supporting
police who are enforcing unconstitutional laws, and at the same time
condemning other criminal acts committed by government is hypocritical
to say the least and counterproductive to any effort whose ultimate goal
is individual liberty. One cannot be just a little bit pregnant. If
individual liberty and freedom are to ever prevail, a large number of
people in this country will be required to become uncomfortable Patriots.
This is going to require courage; does any still exist among our people?

When history closes its final chapter on this once great experiment in
liberty, who will be given the bulk of responsibility for its demise; the
criminals in government who only honored the parts of the Constitution
that did not interfere with their criminality, or the people, who honored
only the parts of the Constitution that were comfortable?

From Ted Rall

Home Of The Free And Home Of The Brave. Live Free Or Die. Shoot First;
Ask Questions Later. Kill Them All, Let God Sort Them Out. These Were
The Mottos Of A Brash, Impetuous, Audacious-To-A-Fault Nation.
That Nation Is Dead.

Integrity Is An Accurate Reflection In Word And Deed Of Whatever Your
Highest Conscience Dictates As Right. Wisdom Is Whatever Your Highest
Conscience Dictates As Truth.

From Mark R. Crovelli

Government is Always and Everywhere a Specially Privileged Class of
People Who Have The Ability To Do Whatever They Want To Another Group Of
People - And Do It At The Forced Expense Of The People They Control.

From Milton Friedman

The Government First Provides Very Poor Schooling, And Then The Harm Is
Multiplied By The Minimum Wage Law, Which Makes It Difficult To Get On-
The-Job Training. Without The Minimum Wage Law, The Least Skilled Could
Offer To Work For Low Wages, Which Would Provide An Incentive For
Employers To Hire And Train Them.

More From Aldous Huxley

Most Human Beings Have An Almost Infinite Capacity For Taking Things For
Granted. That Men Do Not Learn Very Much From The Lessons Of History
Is The Most Important Of All The Lessons Of History.

Most Ignorance Is Vincible Ignorance. We Do Not Know Because
We Do Not Want To Know.

From Max Stimer

The Object Of The State Is Always The Same; To Limit The Individual,
To Tame Him, To Subordinate Him, To Subjugate Him.

And More from James Madison

I Believe There Are More Instances Of The Abridgment Of The Freedom Of
The People By Gradual And Silent Encroachments Of Those In Power Than
By Violent And Sudden Usurpations.

Wisdom From F.A. Harper

The Terrific Urge to prevent another person from making a "Mistake" must
be Resisted if Liberty is to Be Preserved. The "Protective Spirit" that
Leads a Fond Parent to Prohibit his Child From Acquiring Mature
Judgments, as he Substitutes his own Opinions for those of the child,
leads the Dictator to Act As He Does in "Protecting" his Political
Children.

More From Patrick Henry

It is natural to Man to indulge in the Illusions of Hope. We are apt to
Shut our Eyes Against a Painful Truth, and Listen to the Song of that
Siren, till she transforms us into Beasts. Is this the part of Wise Men,
engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to
be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears,
hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation?
For my part, whatever Anguish of Spirit it may Cost, I am Willing to
Know the Whole Truth; To Know The Worst And Provide For It.
