Thoughts


From L.C. Michelon

The Liberal Who Cries Out For Broad Welfare Measures And State Control
Lacks Inherent Faith In People And In Our Free Society. He Treats Them As
Though They Were Some Type Of Chronic Disease. As A Result His
Approach Has Been One Of Continuous Medication By The State.

More From Lord Acton

The One Pervading Evil Of Democracy Is The Tyranny Of The Majority, Or
Rather Of That Party, Not Always The Majority, That Succeeds, By Force
Or Fraud, In Carrying Elections.

From Butler Shaffer

Perhaps not since Caligula appointed his horse to the Roman senate has
the political establishment gone so far out of its way to flaunt its
absurdity. The inanity is not confined to any particular factions; it is
pure bipartisanship that unites the politically-minded in their efforts
to bamboozle the booboisie with terrifying specters and the kinds of
implausible explanations of events that recall childhood tales told
around a late-night campfire.

And Still More From Thomas Jefferson

It is Inconsistent with the Principles of Civil Liberty, and Contrary
to the Natural Rights of the Other Members of the Society, that Any
Body of Men Therein Should Have Authority To Enlarge Their Own Powers,
Prerogatives Or Emoluments Without Restraint.

From Andrew Hamilton

Power may Justly be compared to a Great River. While kept within its due
bounds it is both beautiful and useful. But when it Overflows its Banks,
it is then Too Impetuous to be Stemmed; it bears down all before it, and
Brings Destruction and Desolation wherever it comes. If, then, this is
the Nature of Power, let us at least Do our Duty, and like wise men who
Value Freedom use our utmost care to Support Liberty, The Only Bulwark
Against Lawless Power, Which In All Ages Has Sacrificed To Its Wild
Lust And Boundless Ambition The Blood Of The Best Men That Ever Lived!

From Edmund A. Opitz

To the extent that a society Limits Its Government to policing functions
which Curb the individuals who engage in aggressive and criminal actions,
and conducts its economic affairs on the basis of free and willing
exchange, to that extent Domestic Peace Prevails. When a society departs
from this norm, its Governing Class Begins, in effect, to Make War Upon
the Rest of the Nation. A situation is created in which Everyone is
Victimized by everyone else under the Fiction of Each Living At The
Expense Of All.

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

Liberty Is Meaningless If It Is Only The Liberty To Agree With Those
In Power.

From The Website Of Michael Gaddy

http://www.thepatriotvolunteers.com. Michael Gaddy 1-1-10

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.

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.
