"Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it." -John Adams


Welcome to Patriot's Lament. We strive here to educate ourselves on Liberty. We will not worry ourselves so much with the daily antics of American politics, and drown ourselves in the murky waters of the political right or left.
Instead, we will look to the Intellectuals and Champions of Liberty, and draw on their wisdom of what it is to be a truly free people. We will learn from where our Providential Liberties are derived, and put the proper perspective of a Free Individual and the State.
Please join us!

As important as liberty is, freedom from the power of sin is more important.

As we remember the birth of Christ and celebrate the coming of the New Year, I pray that we may all experience, appreciate and demonstrate the liberty we have in Christ Jesus from the slavery of sin, and the New Life He purchased for us.

Joe Sobran's Wisdom

There can be no greater triumph for the parasite than for the host to think of it and itself as a single unit. It’s as if a man were to refer to himself and a blood-bloated leech under his skin as “we.” -- Joe Sobran

Your Friend, The State

After the twentieth century, in which the world’s governments killed hundreds of millions of their own subjects, everyone ought to talk about the state the way Jews talk about Hitler.

Jesus' Government

Relax, the local crime spree may just be the Feds trying to corrupt your neighborhood teens and mentally challenged with sex and drugs...

And an interesting article on the police.

Some sizable portion of the cops don't start out as sociopaths, in my opinion. The incentive structure, the nature of the laws being enforced, the groupthink/feeling of authority (think of the Stanford Prison Experiment) etc. turns them that way. Some small percentage maintain (or regain) their humanity.

If you really want "law and order" you'd best not look to something shaped like a state to provide it.

Friends?




If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
Samuel Adams. 


This one is something that reminds me of a friend who once told me about a test he does for people he meets, and based on their answer, he decides whether or not he will even give them the time of day, much less befriend them. He calls it the "Raw milk test." He asks if you think the State has the right to jail people who disobey the law and buy/sell raw cows' milk. Based on the answer given, he decides whether his time would be worth spending with you. Yes, if you say the state does have this right, he sees no worth in your friendship.
This brings up a broader point, one where we decide our time preferences. How much time do you want to spend with a Statist, really, someone who for whatever reason wouldn't blink an eye if the State threw you in a cage. Someone who says, "He must have done something wrong, after all, it's the law." I think we have to remove ourselves as much as possible from the Statists who just WON'T get it, no matter how much time you have wasted on them. Freedom and Liberty aren't for everyone;, some actually like being slaves, all the while, of course, telling you that they are somehow free (thanks, no less, to the State).
I think it's time to take Samuel Adams' words to heart, and to tell these Statists--and you know who they are in your life--to move on.
What really do we need from them anyway? They aren't edifying our lives, so why even associate with them?
Let them live in their chains.
We should have a little more self respect than that. If you have no qualms over the State caging me or my family or anyone over an arbitrary law some mortal man made up from his little mind, I want nothing to do with you.
You sound more like an enemy than a friend.
May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
Don't expect me to smile and be your friend while you chain me.

Saturday, 12/7, David McElroy

David McElroy, creator of the video "We're the Government, and You're Not" will join us on Patriot's Lament radio Saturday at 9AM.


David has been a political operative working in the system before coming to the conclusion that there is no "there" there. Hear him talk about this and his efforts since to advance liberty.

You can visit his blog at David McElroy.

I particularly recommend these two to your attention:
You can't fight the state by becoming the state
To become a runaway slave first you have to free your own thoughts

What do we DO???

This really is the perennial question.

Consider this piece by Wendy McElroy.

I'm going to cherry pick a few points out of her very good article to expand upon, leaving out her supporting arguments. You can (and should) read her article if you don't see what I quote here as immediately obvious.

The great political lie is that individuals need the state. It is a lie on at least two levels.
The first layer of the great lie: It states the opposite of what is true; the state needs individuals. And the state is desperate for you to believe it is indispensable to your life.
The second layer of the great lie is its foundation. Namely, there is no "state" as opposed to individuals. Both the state and society consist of nothing more than their individual members and the sum total of their interactions.
Individuals who form the state through their membership attach a specific meaning to gathering and coordinating with each other. The meaning or purpose is to exercise the perceived privilege to rule over individuals who are non-members. To do so, it is necessary to convince non-members of the state's legitimacy.
Mystification sanctifies the actions taken by individuals in the name of the state. That is, a double standard of morality is introduced – one for individuals who are members of the state and another for non-members. The double standard contradicts a longstanding principle of liberty; namely, that a violation of violates [I think she meant to write "rights"] committed by an individual remains a violation of rights when performed by a group of individuals.
Rape is no less rape because a gang is involved or because they shout "do for England!"
In her concluding paragraph Wendy writes:
The state exists as an engine of privilege only because the vast majority of people believe that the individuals who comprise it can properly operate on a double standard. If state agents, from the president to post office workers, were viewed as individuals who are bound to the same rules of decency as the rest of us, then the state as we know it would crumble as the illusion it is. 
After you read this you say, "So what does this have to do with determining what we do?"

The key thing underpinning the evil things the state does is the moral double standard which is necessary for it to exist. Anything which leaves that double standard in place is counter productive.

Let me say that again: Anything which leaves that double standard in place is COUNTER PRODUCTIVE.

Limited government people, Constitutional Conservatives, etc. all leave the moral double standard in place. Yes, they want to reduce the predations of the state to a less onerous level. Yes, they want to increase the sphere of private action somewhat, but the core error is still there. The germ from which we went from 1789 to today is still there. As Dr. Robert Higgs wrote recently the only difference between a limited government and a tyranny is time. Limited government people and constitutional conservatives are on the right path if they started out as neo-cons or neo-liberals, but if they stop there and get bogged down in "making a difference in government" then they're part of the problem, not part of the solution because they justify and rationalize the central mistake of the state, the moral double standard in the two main things -- stealing and killing. It can only steal and kill for a couple reasons, reasons that they like, but it still gets the exemption. Having that exemption it then becomes a battle of numbers and emotions as to when it gets to exercise that exemption.

So, what is to be done? The state exists in the minds of people. This is what must be attacked. It's key error and evil is the moral double standard. This is the root. Playing at the branches with a pocket knife may be fun, but often times by doing so you're fertilizing the tree.

If you think about the root instead of the branches you'll see that there are many avenues of action open to you. If you get involved in politics, are you doing so to "fix" the state or to undermine its legitimacy? If the first, then I think that you're part of the problem. If the second, I think you're part of the solution. But, it is a very dangerous path as the number of people able to resist the lure of political power is very small indeed.

Upcoming Guests

We've just lined up two guests for the radio show which I'm excited to share with you. The dates for the interviews are being worked out.

David McElroy
Many years ago David made the famous video, "We're the Government, and You're Not."
He also wrote an insightful article about change through politics, "Why not join the LP? You can't fight the state by becoming the state." The key insight I took from this article was his discussion of the Founding fathers, about half way through the article. If the title doesn't grab you because you think that is an obvious conclusion, the article is still worthwhile. I'd seen David's video before, but I first found out about him through his interview on Bad Quaker, which led me to find him.


William Anderson
I first "met" Bill Anderson through a lecture he gave at the Ludwig Von Mises Institute about the press as a fundamentally progressive institution which mostly advances the interests of the state. Since then he's written extensively about the injustice system in America and Paul Krugman's many problems as an economist.
His archive is available at LewRockwell.com, but if you're unsure where to begin, let me suggest this article about the Court system or this one.

Prepare now, not when you wished you had

Last week, Fairbanks got hit by a good snow storm, big deal. Then it rained. So what? Then the wind came up with 50 mph gusts, blowing down hundreds of trees which were bearing the weight of heavy wet snow.
The power went out all over the valley, thousands of homes without power.
We lost our power sometime during the night, big deal right?
 I have a generator.
 Problem was it was still sitting at my shop, not hooked up to our house. I didn't worry too much about it, our woods stoves kept the house warm enough, propane cook stoves gave us hot meals, but when we were told it would be several days before power came back, and by the third day tired of melting snow on the stoves for flushing toilets, I decided to drag the genset out of the snow.
I didn't know enough about this genset to do anything with it the first day, besides get it started in 10 degree weather.
A friend got it wired in on the 4th day, and we had power, running water and flushing toilets!
 Cool huh?
The power company had us back on line a few hours later.
Still, I was and am disappointed in my procrastination. Why had I waited for this to happen to set up my generator? My battery pack for the house is still sitting in my shop, not hooked up to anything. I don't have any fuel stored up at the house like I keep telling myself I would do.
What if it was the normal -40 during this time? A lot of folks would have been in a hurt box, and I was ill prepared to help anyone.
I guess the point I am trying to make is, don't wait until necessity forces you to take action.
On day one of the outage here, I heard stories of generators being cleared off the shelves, as well as water, batteries, flashlights and candles.
Fred Meyer threw away their fresh food after 8 hours, so the supermarket wasn't going to help much as far as fresh food.
So stock up a little food, it can't hurt. Even if you just grab 2 extra cans of food on every shopping trip.
Maybe have some extra fresh water on hand? Batteries? A few candles? Don't think you can go grab it after the emergency happens, because it isn't going to work that way.
I have found some neat water pumps for those who have their own wells, it fits down your well and you can actually pump water into your home system to charge it up.
You can't expect to grab some extra propane or fuel after the fact if the local station doesn't have power to pump it.
Plus, I think it is good to have extra beyond what you need so you can help those who are in worse shape than you are.
In a real crisis, say a financial meltdown, you certainly shouldn't think you will just blow your neighbor away because he knocks on your door to ask for some food for his kids.

I think times are close, when things are going to get very bad, very very bad. Power may be the least of one's worries. So do yourself, your family, and your neighbors a favor, store up a little now.
Encourage your families and friends to do the same.
Ask them what they would do if they don't have the State to run to for help.

I don't see why small communities can't make it through what's coming.

But it's up to you to make it happen.

Be an asset to your family and friends and neighbors, not a hindrance, or worse, a burden.

I especially think it is important for Anarchists (or Voluntaryists), to be ready. What better example can you show, when it hits the fan, than to say, " I know a better way than to run to the State," and by being the example yourself.
If you are just as needy and caught off guard as your local Statist, who is going to listen to you?

The message of Liberty is more than words and philosophy; it requires action, diligence, and self discipline.

Judges 9:7-15... for you Statist so called Christians

When it was told to Jotham, he went and stood on top of Mount Gerizim and cried aloud and said to them, “Listen to me, you leaders of Shechem, that God may listen to you. The trees once went out to anoint a king over them, and they said to the olive tree, ‘Reign over us.’ But the olive tree said to them, ‘Shall I leave my abundance, by which gods and men are honored, and go hold sway over the trees?’ 10 And the trees said to the fig tree, ‘You come and reign over us.’ 11 But the fig tree said to them, ‘Shall I leave my sweetness and my good fruit and go hold sway over the trees?’ 12 And the trees said to the vine, ‘You come and reign over us.’ 13 But the vine said to them, ‘Shall I leave my wine that cheers God and men and go hold sway over the trees?’ 14 Then all the trees said to the bramble, ‘You come and reign over us.’ 15 And the bramble said to the trees, ‘If in good faith you are anointing me king over you, then come and take refuge in my shade, but if not, let fire come out of the bramble and devour the cedars of Lebanon.’

Funny, the brambles are the only ones who would accept the call to rule. Also, the brambles are obviously inferior to the Cedars. 

So Cedar, who should reign over you?

I don't worship objects

If you have not seen this story yet, I think you will enjoy it.

If only more Americans felt the same. Lew Rockwell, "I don't worship objects"

Default... ha, I wish

So the big lie right now is if the government doesn't up the debt limit, the government will default. The U.S. government that is. Actually, the big lie is that the U.S. government has shut down. Of course this is a lie, if the U.S. government had actually shut down, I would be posting jubilation to no end on this blog. But, of course, the federal government hasn't shut down. Think I am wrong, try defying a federal law in public. HAHA.
LIE.
The other LIE, is if the U.S. government doesn't raise the debt ceiling then the government will default.
 I wish.
If this were true, again, I would have posted at least 1000 posts praying for this.
The truth is, and if you listen to Peter Schiff at all you already know, the U.S. government already takes in 10 times the money it needs to not default every year in taxes alone.
But, that's not enough for the parasites, they want the tax money and the ability to borrow as much as they want to, so our great great great great grandkids will foot the bill. Don't think so? The British government is still paying on the debt incurred during the real first world war, the 7 years war, or the French and Indian war, of the 1750s. That 's a lot of greats in the grandkids.
Don't believe anything the State is telling you right now, (or ever) and don't fall for the Republican Fascists who are acting like they are on an all out warpath against Obamacare. The only thing they hate about Obamacare is that a Democrat created it.
Think about it. Medicare is 10 times worse, and G.W. Bush upped that little program to infinity, and cost the American people billions. And these same parasite republicans ALL voted for it.
OOPS, except Ron Paul.
So, rest at ease.
The best thing that could happen, seriously, would be for the U.S. government to actually default.
Not for the Statist Parasites, but for us, the hosts.
The longer they kick the can down the road, the worse it will be for a majority of our folks who are our neighbors.
Another little piece of friendly advice. Don't listen to Glenn Beck. I have been listening in the last few days, (although I am happy to say I shut it off after just a few minutes). Glenn is just as lost on the debt ceiling and default as your next door Keynesian neighbor you might have.
It is pretty sad. He has a huge following, and almost seems so close, but when you look behind his passionate Statism, you can see him for what he is. A Statist.

So, never fear. We who love Liberty should never fear what is to come from the ill choices of our neighbors and their collective mindset.
Stock up on some food, some silver, gold, bullets, and more importantly, stock up on some compassion.
The greatest thing a person who believes in Individual Liberty can do is to love his neighbor as himself.
Prove to the Statist that we don't need the State. You know, "What would we do without the State providing for us???"
Show them. Walk the talk.

The time IS near at hand, whether we will be free men or slaves.

I choose to be free. And I choose my neighbor to be free.

Pray for the end of the State; pray for your posterity, that there will be a U.S. default. Take responsibility now. I would rather fight the storms that are coming because of the decisions of my fathers now, than pass them on to my children.
If hard times are coming, let me weather them. 

Let my children live as free men and women.

Monsanto

I am not a Monsanto apologist. I am not a fan of GM foods. At the same time, I am somewhat fascinated at some of Monsanto's developments.
How many sports fans love astroturf? Then thank Monsanto. DDT, developed by Monsanto, almost eradicated malaria from the earth. Then it was banned worldwide. The U.N. estimates 30-100 million people, mostly in Africa, have died from malaria since its ban.
Monsanto was the first company to mass produce LED lights. How many people have used Roundup weed killer?
Again, I am not here to protect Monsanto.
But I have to ask, while the world is protesting them and saying, "We hate Monsanto," who is the real problem? The company selling its superior products, or the State, that enables their monopolies and protects their product using IP laws and patent protections?
Why beg the State to force product  labeling, the very State that enables Monsanto's monopoly? Monsanto could not do what it is doing without the State's protection. Why hack at the branches, Monsanto, and not Strike the Root? The State?
I  only ask, those of you who are protesting Monsanto and its GMO foods, to ask yourself, and to put your energy towards, not ending Monsanto, but putting an end to its enabler, the State.
Quit fighting the effects, which is a waste of time, like fighting a cancer in its final stage, and fight the cause, which is the State. Who is more evil, the Corporation paying off politicians, or the  politicians who accept the bribes (political contributions). How many of you have given monies to different political campaigns, to get the outcome you want? How is this different from Monsanto?
There is none.
Direct your energy to fight the State; direct your resources to resist the State.
All these monopolies fall, when the empire falls.

To U.S. soldiers

The ramp up to war with Syria is in high gear. The power crazed politicians mean to have war one way or the other. Under the pretense of an obvious false flag (the Syrian government using chemical weapons), the rulers of the American Empire are ready to kill. And they will. And innocent people who have done nothing to Americans will die at the hands of Americans.
But none of these crazed individuals in the U.S. government will fire a shot. None of them will.
They count on the American  soldier to kill for them, and to advance their agenda for the Middle East.
The argument that these weapons somehow threaten America is even more ridiculous than the lies made to get us into the Iraq war. The U.S. State lied to the whole world, and sent American soldiers there to kill for them, turning  America into the aggressor, and American soldiers killed innocent people that had done nothing to nor threatened the American people.
But Bush didn't fire a weapon. Cheney and Rumsfeld never fired a shot.
You, American soldier, did.


So today, you are being told that you will be sent to fight Syria. So I have to ask you, will you?

Are you going to kill Syrians that pose no threat to America? Is that why you joined the armed forces? When you gave your oath to the Constitution of the United States, did it mean anything to you? How is the Syrian "enemy" threatening America? How are the moms, dads, sons and daughters that are going to die a threat to you or the American people? And if they are not, how can you justify killing them?

America has fought a long war supposedly against our named enemy, Al-Qaeda. It is a known fact that the rebels fighting against the Syrian government are fighters, of Al-Qaeda. By attacking Syria, you will be directly helping Al-Qaeda, the very enemy your government has had you fighting for 12 years. Are you willing to do that? Wouldn't this be counter thinking to any sane person? Why have you been fighting Al-Qaeda only to help them now?
You, American Soldier, can refuse. You are the ones who have to pull the trigger, you can be the ones who say no. The American people are counting on you. People of the whole world are counting on you. Little kids in Syria are counting on you. If you don't, you, soldier, will be the ones responsible for killing innocent people, not your government, not Obama, not McCain, YOU. Yes you, even Americans are not immune from being war criminals.
You have a duty to say no, as the Nuremberg Trials showed. This will not be a Just War. This will just be a war.
Murder.
You do not have to continue to be fodder for the American Empire, which preys on your feelings of loyalty to your comrades to get you to do Its bidding.
Strike a real blow for freedom. Refuse to go. Refuse to attack Syria. The lovers of Liberty will stand with you. You officers in the military, it's time you actually lead. You know you have the Right to refuse un-Constitutional orders. You have a duty to refuse. Don't ask your men to be war criminals. History WILL judge you.

God will Judge you.

It's never Treason to do that which is Right.

Resolve to serve no more!

"All this havoc, this misfortune, this ruin, descends upon you not from alien foes, but from the one enemy whom you yourselves render as powerful as he is, for whom you go bravely to war, for whose greatness you do not refuse to offer your own bodies unto death. He who thus domineers over you has only two eyes, only two hands, only one body, no more than is possessed by the least man among the infinite numbers dwelling
in your cities; he has indeed nothing more than the power that you confer upon him to destroy you. Where has he acquired enough eyes to spy upon you, if you do not provide them yourselves? How can he have so many arms to beat you with, if he does not borrow them from you? The feet that trample down your cities, where does he get them if they are not your own? How does he have any power over you except through you? How would he dare assail you if he had no cooperation from you? What could he do to you if you yourselves did not connive with the thief who plunders you, if you were not accomplices of the murderer who kills you, if you were not traitors to yourselves? You sow your crops in order that he may ravage them, you install and furnish your homes to give him goods to pillage; you rear your daughters that he may gratify his lust; you bring up your children in order that he may confer upon them the greatest privilege he knows—
to be led into his battles, to be delivered to butchery, to be made the servants of his greed and the instruments of his vengeance; you yield your bodies unto hard labor in order that he may indulge in his delights and wallow in his filthy pleasures; you weaken yourselves in order to make him the stronger and the mightier to hold you in check. From all these indignities, such as the very beasts of the field would not endure, you can deliver yourselves if you try, not by taking action, but merely by willing to be free.
 Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break into pieces."

Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo

Dr. DiLorenzo will be joining us on the Patriot's Lament radio show tomorrow in the first hour. (9am AK time)
We will be discussing the Liefare/Warfare state, and expose the State warmongers for what they are. War criminals.
I am sure that we will discuss the American people's stupid gullibility and the so called "Christian church's" lust for war and blood. Whatever happened to Matthew 5??

In the second hour, our friend and local radical for Liberty Frank Turney will join us to discuss the history of the Jury, and the power the Jury has, and the Founding Fathers that stood for the Right of the Jury to judge the law. As Jefferson said, law (positive law) was merely the will of Tyrants. Google 660 KFAR and click on  "Listen Live" if you are out of the range of the station.   

Tune in! It promises to be another good program!

Larken Rose asks an uncomfortable question to the sheeple

In the 20th century, there were about 280,000 murders worldwide by private people against other private people. During this same time, States killed about 260,000,000 of their "own" people, and were responsible for around 416,000,000 people total. From whom are we more in danger of being killed? The State is the most dangerous entity known to mankind.

Patriot's Lament May 4, 2013: Being A Patriot and All Is Not Lost

In this episode we talk about those elite killers that take on the mighty and evil terrorists!!
Who are these brave warriors? Punks who sit behind a computer screen and kill little kids 7000 miles away from them using a drone. This practice is so disgusting, if you know a drone pilot you should do your best to make that person as uncomfortable as you can when meeting them or confronting them. Instead of getting esteem from people, they should feel our disgust in what they do for a living. Mock them. We also talk about an incident in Alaska where the State is exposed on camera violating a person.

Patriot's Lament April 27, 2013: When The Bomb Went Off and Onerous Gun Laws

Matt Want joins us again, and along with Claudio, we discuss the Boston bombing, and more to the point, the terrorist State, and the actions that they took in shutting down Boston.
It's funny, Boston went along with its life after the bombing, it was actually the State that shut it down looking for the accused bomber.

Patriot's Lament April 20, 2013: Stay In Your Home and Hel San American

In this episode we talk about the USSA Stasi fomenting martial law in Boston, we lament over the fact that the Bostonians bowed like sheep, and there was absolutely no resistance to this tyranny. Welcome to the new America.
Where are Samuel Adams and his Sons of Liberty?

Patriot's Lament April 13, 2013: Serve The Market and They Dont Own Them

In this episode we talk about Melissa Perry, and her little promo where she says that children are not their parent's, but they belong to the community, and the community should invest in them. We ask at what size does a community or a group of people have to get to to where a arbitrary entity with the monopolized power of force and taxation is needed.

Patriot's Lament April 6, 2013: Arbitrary Law and Unless People Want Freedom

In this episode Matt Want, former borough assemblymen sits in for Steve Floyd, we go around and around and generally have a fun time. We talk about Statist pig Dick Durbin telling us that "no Rights are absolute." Of course the State thinks this way.
We refute that claim, of course.

Patriot's Lament March 16, 2013: Get On The Train and Lament

In this episode we talk about exercising our Rights, and we talk about the world elite, new world order folks that want to rule the world, and we suggest that without our consent, even these who are mere people, have no power over us that we do not allow them to have.


Using the State


A caller today cited a small repeal of law favoring unions as an example of voting to increase liberty. The state advances on MANY fronts simultaneously. It is willing to accept a small retrenchment in one place as the cost of taking huge swaths of liberty elsewhere. And this assumes that the retrenchment is actually a restoration of liberty, which it rarely is.
Working against the
 state in the state's paradigm is like battling an army which uses your own logistics to support its troops. This is a losing strategy. Cut it off where it is weak, not where it is strong.

The state's paradigm is aggressive violence and the threat thereof. It has a comparative advantage in violence precisely because it is peopled primarily by sociopaths and people who are okay helping sociopaths so long as there is no personal responsibility associated with helping sociopaths (just following orders/just doing my job, etc).


Anyone who tries to draw you into the realm of violence is either unwise or an agent provocateur. Don't fall for it. As the state has more and more obvious failures and meets more resistance it will try to find people it can Goldstein (blame for its failures and demonize). Any even hint of violence or willingness to perpetrate violence will only drive the scared masses deeper into the pen they live their lives in. Remember the herd is both envious and afraid of people with true freedom. Neither emotion leads to clear thinking.

The State is Too Dangerous to Tolerate

Dr. Robert Higgs delivers the closing speech for the Mises University of 2013 which was titled "The State is Too Dangerous to Tolerate."

http://mises.org/media/8028/Mises-University-2013-gtgt-The-State-Is-Too-Dangerous-to-Tolerate

"The state is simply the place for the most vicious people in society to congregate. Once in the state, with the apparatus of coercion and death at their disposal they are orders of magnitude more dangerous than as private actors. Without a state you MAY be a victim of crime. With a state you are assured to be a victim of crime."

The state doesn't just prey on society, it coarsens and ultimately destroys society. At any given point you may say that the price of the state is a price you are willing to pay, but the existence of the state creates unintended consequences, negative incentives. In the next cycle the state will be more powerful and attract a lower morality person. In comparison, the market and voluntary interaction tends to benefit good behavior, so that in the next cycle things are likely to be better.

The opinion surveys revealing that a substantial portion of the population is content to have the NSA watching their every move is probably the most depressing news I've had in a while. Nothing in the book 1984 showed the complete destruction of the people as people like they're putting up with being observed continually. Nothing dehumanizes people like thinking that their every move is monitored by others, whose intentions they can never trust.

How to improve society, vote or preach the gospel?

http://mises.org/daily/5036/How-to-Win-an-Election

This is not a depressing article. This is an ENCOURAGING article.

God's created order is supportive of MORAL methods of social improvement: cooperation and persuasion.

It is NOT supportive of IMMORAL methods of social improvement: force and coercion.

In fact, force and coercion are destructive of society.

You can't accomplish good ends by bad means without loading up bad effects further into the future.

I see this as very comforting and reinforcing of the biblical world view.

Naturally, preaching the Gospel of the State and the Republican party and Wars for Democracy isn't the same Gospel as the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In America, the sun is green, and the sky is fool...

With the Zimmerman verdict, several thousand people are protesting the not guilty verdict of George Zimmerman. Destroying private property, ready to execute "justice," these people froth at the mouth for what, they have no idea. Right or wrong, he had a jury trial, by people. They said not guilty. The State was even outed as being the instigator of these protests. Why does the State encourage this type of protest? To rid itself of that irritating Right to Trial by Jury?
At the same time, more news is revealed daily about the NSA spying on these same people, tracking every phone call, every email, every communication... and not a peep. No protests, no outrage, nothing, neither violent nor peaceful. What is going on here? Can these people be this foolish?

Today it was reported that Pakistani Taliban have been fighting with the "rebels" against the Syrian government of Assad for months. The same people we have been sending drone strikes to kill, including women and children, are fighting against Assad, and even knowing this, (and you can know the US government knows full well they are there) the same people who are ordering drone strikes to kill Pakistani Taliban in Pakistan, are trying to arm the same Pakistani Taliban in Syria to fight Assad. Along with Al- Qaeda fighters, whom the US is also trying to arm. Sen. McCain actually met with Al-Qaeda fighters during his visit there. So... what is going on? Has this whole fight against terrorism been a fake? To give the US government the excuse to destroy whatever was left of the Bill of Rights? Seems like one could make a good case for it.
And not a peep again.
I have said over and over this battle is for the minds and hearts, it is an Intellectual one. The 2 stories above prove this even more.
The American people continue to ride an emotional roller coaster, while the State continues to grow by taking advantage of this.
The nonthinking fools are following the thinking fools. Both are headed for the cliff.

The Declaration of Independence

At many various times the US government has considered the document which formally declared the separation of the colonies from Great Britain to be subversive, and reading it in public to be criminal.

I wonder why that might be.

Frank Chodorov's interesting thoughts on the Declaration of Independence are worth reading here: http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/archives/140852.html

Are you a brute?

Today on the radio show, Will Grigg (http://freedominourtime.blogspot.com/) talked about punitive populists. Lew Rockwell talks about Red State fascists. Both of these labels offended me when I first ran across them. The Red States are the good states. The people of America are the salt of the earth, it is only their wicked government which ruins things. Maybe not.

Michael Rozeff (http://lewrockwell.com/rozeff/rozeff412.html) gives me at least one insight per article, usually more.
It is my belief that evils that we are seeing do not come about unless the public not only tolerates them but wants them. Economists would say that there is a demand for them. Behind these demands is a demand for Law and Order, and behind that demand is the even more basic DEMAND FOR FORCE.
People aren't content with law and order (the protection of property). They want to use aggressive force to bend people to their will, be they neighbors or foreigners. The lust to dominate rules the hearts of middle America. This is the hook that the state uses to trick us into our own slavery -- the lust to make others our slaves.
I am saying politely that the American public is brutish at heart, prone to resort to force, not freedom-loving at heart and not justice-loving at heart. I am not one who blames government for being the sole cause of the evils that we are seeing. I think social-political causation is more complex. It is a two-way street running between public and government; it is a dance with two partners. First one takes the lead, then the other. There is an interaction.
The worship of force is the official religion of the United States. Elected officials are the eye-candy which tricks us into thinking force works to our benefit and we're not really being evil by using it against those we disapprove of (even if our disapproval is justified).
The public largely believes in might makes right. The public has adopted and become used to the idea that all ills can be overcome by government laws and force. A basic misapprehension is at work in this belief. The people leading the government think that FORCE works to alleviate various ills and problems both domestically and overseas. The public shares this belief.
And later in the article Rozeff talks about how the state exacerbates the moral failings of the population.
When the American public worships government’s use of power, it worships the brutishness in itself. The two go hand in hand. To the degree that a people is uncivilized, it will produce an uncivilized society and an uncivilized government. But government, consisting of men and women elected to use force, is not a mere tool of the public. Causation works in both directions. The government actively promotes the use of force, educates and propagandizes on its behalf and extends its use in the lives of the society and overseas. The people and the government people they elect are at one and the same time independent and dependent. What they share is a demand for the use of force, as opposed to a demand for freedom.
I recommend the entire article. I can't do it justice.

Friday, June 14, 2013

I follow the writings of Dr. Robert Higgs (Crisis and Leviathan) on Facebook. Today he was posting quotes from Leo Tolstoy.

"The government assures the people that they are in danger from the invasion of another nation, or from foes in their midst, and that the only way to escape this danger is by the slavish obedience of the people to their government. This fact is seen most prominently during revolutions and dictatorships, but it exists always and everywhere that the power of the government exists. Every government explains its existence, and justifies its deeds of violence, by the argument that if it did not exist the condition of things would be very much worse. After assuring the people of its danger the government subordinates it to control, and when in this condition compels it to attack some other nation. And thus the assurance of the government is corroborated in the eyes of the people, as to the danger of attack from other nations." -- Leo Tolstoy, "Christianity and Patriotism," 1895

"Not only does the action of Governments not deter men from crimes; on the contrary, it increases crime by always disturbing and lowering the moral standard of society. Nor can this be otherwise, since always and everywhere a Government, by its very nature, must put in the place of the highest, eternal, religious law (not written in books but in the hearts of men, and binding on every one) its own unjust, man-made laws, the object of which is neither justice nor the common good of all but various considerations of home and foreign expediency." -- Leo Tolstoy, "The Meaning of the [1905] Russian Revolution," 1906

"The truth is that the State is a conspiracy designed not only to exploit, but above all to corrupt its citizens." -- Leo Tolstoy

To round out this, my first post to Patriot's Lament (Thanks, Josh, for inviting me), I'd like to share this video from the people at Reason:

Contributing to slave labor

We had a guy call the show today, who calls himself "token socialist" (TS), and he basically said that buying from WalMart makes you responsible for the slave labor conditions in China, and you are contributing to the suicide rate there, where people are diving off buildings to end their enslavement.
I am going to give you my opinion, one you may not have heard or thought of before.
First, I am not a communist, and do not condone the communist system. I do not condone indentured servitude, slave labor or whatever.
 I hate the State.
What I am for is Liberty and the ability to live and trade freely.
The Chinese have lived through one master after another, and their latest master is communism. The communist system has murdered tens of millions of Chinese, and yet TS is upset, saying middle class America is taking advantage of these Chinese by purchasing goods made in China.
I would say that middle class Americans buying Chinese goods has had the opposite effect for the Chinese people. Before the Chinese were making goods that Americans bought, the Chinese were slaves to their government with literally no value. Killing millions of them just made it easier to feed the rest that were kept alive. They lived like dogs, getting zero in return for their work, only whatever the Great Leaders decided to give them.
Then the Market stepped its foot into China, and by selling cheap goods to the Americans, (those greedy good for nothings), the Chinese laborer suddenly had value, his actual life had a certain value that it had never had before. He could make the State rich. As time has gone on, the average working Chinese people have seen their standard of living go up, not near what America has seen in previous years, but it is better than it was. And I say, given more time, the Free Market will destroy the Communist Chinese and the Chinese people will flourish. In the meantime, buying Chinese goods is making the Chinese Slave more valuable to the State, which induces the State to treat them better and better. A healthy, happy slave is going to produce more than a sick unhappy one. In time, the Market will show that a Free person can and would produce even more.
Take North Korea for an  example. They produce no goods that the Western world buys. They are the most impoverished people on the planet. Has middle class America brought them to their fate? Not at all-- the State and Socialism has. If the people of North Korea were allowed to make goods that the West would purchase, their standard of living would skyrocket. Would they be eating prime rib in the first year? Nope. But a bite of meat to go with the 2 spoons of rice would be an improvement, and it would progress from there. China is proof.
I asked, and would like to know, from whom should I purchase goods from then, if not ever from the Chinese? Should all my purchases go to "American" companies and corporations? American companies pay extremely high taxes, which ends up going to the military industrial complex, and feeds the war machines that enables the U.S. to make war with all peoples of the world (including their own), and to kill people in the Middle East simply because they are brown. So am I more ethical by supporting that? Trading with American companies simply makes the U.S. government stronger through taxation. Period. More jobs going overseas means less tax slaves for the U.S., which makes it harder for it to make war.   
And here in the U.S. we see that the opposite is happening than what is happening in those "Slave States." Americans are losing Liberty as fast as the clock can move.

So strike a blow for Liberty, help those enslaved by the Socialist Marxist government of China, and buy quality Chinese goods. Help to truly feed the poor, and raise an entire people's standard of living. One day you can say you helped in the collapse of the Chinese Communist government, and used the Free Market to do it.

Memorial Day

I pretty much can't stand Memorial Day. First off, I can't stand the State telling me what days I have to take off of work. Today is a nice day, and I could have got a lot of work done and made money doing it. I want to be the one who decides when and what days I take off work and enjoy life.

This year Memorial day irritates me more than normal. Why?

I have read a couple articles that have shown new lows for the American Idiot.

The first one was a "SEAL" that compared his fighting in Ramadi, Iraq to the colonial revolutionaries. He went on to say that America didn't get it's freedom from the Declaration of Independence but from "soldiers" who fought willingly because they believed in the "United States of America".
So America is also free because we attacked Iraq.
This SEAL is an idiot. And a fool.
To compare the war in Iraq to the War for Independence is so stupid I can't believe there are people who can believe that and still function in life, like even being able to feed themselves with a spoon.
Now, if he had compared the US to Britain during the War for Independence, he would be closer.
Obviously we all know we invaded Iraq in a war of aggression, nothing whatsoever to do with American Freedom, or Liberty. American soldiers in Iraq were the aggressors, the invading army, the tyrants.
We were not "freeing" Iraq. Killing innocent people doesn't count as freeing them.
The Colonials were not soldiers, they were farmers for the most part that would grab their knapsack with an apple and a piece of bread and head to battle to fire a few shots at the British and head home to take care of the chores. They were NOT fighting for the "United States of America", they didn't even know that term. They fought for their state and their home.  They were called terrorists by the British State, and by the definition of the term that the US government uses today, they most certainly would be terrorists today.
Oh well, I am going to stop with this one, cause it's just to stupid to think about. Except I did hear some Fox News "Memorial Day Special" on the radio today and the war for remembering this year was the war in Iraq.  There are millions of Iraqis who will never forget the soldiers who invaded their homes and killed their loved ones. Wonder if they will have a memorial day.
American Idiots.
The next story I read today was some army surgeon who was asked about what he thought about Memorial Day. Well, this surgeon went on about how he is sad because he thinks about the ones who lose their lives or are maimed for life, and how many of these are America's "best and brightest." There is no remorse about war itself, or about the fact that these "best and brightest" were needlessly killed or maimed in a war of stupidity, nope. Just that America could have had these bright folks living today and who knows what wonderful things they could have accomplished if they were not dead. Not a word about the  cause of their death, and how stupid and wasteful it is, just that they are dead, like they were born into the military and automatically had to go to war and die.
American Idiots.
I am not celebrating memorial day. I will not worship soldiers, the military or the State. I also am not going to be silent about someone comparing the Iraq war with the American Revolution.
Americans, and especially the church-going people, love and worship the military, and think it can do no wrong, because people join it and die in war.
They are wrong to be warmongers and State worshipers. I think they are idiots to let the US government scare them into thinking they have to worry about a guy riding a goat in whateverstan coming here and blowing them up.
War is the health of the State. Being in the military keeps the State healthy. It has nothing to do with Liberty, any more than the war in Iraq did.
Pull your heads out of the State's butt and look around and think for yourselves for once. Fools, you are being used. Your rightful love of your country and people is being misused and abused by the State.
Stand up for the truth. Dare to say NO! The war is wrong, it has nothing to do with American freedoms, so let's quite lying about it and starting talking about the truth.

Patriot's Lament March 9, 2013: Trillion Dollar Coin and Bad Medicine

In this episode we talk about the idiotic congressmen who actually thought that printing a trillion dollar coin was the answer to the U.S. debt. And people actually vote for these idiots. We go on to talk about government monopolies and how the services we get are dropping in value every day (although we pay more) directly because of government monopolies restricting competition in the free market.

Patriot's Lament March 2, 2013: It's The Gays and Become Ungovernable

In this program we talk to a fellow that is a little misguided in what he thinks is destroying the Country. Again we talk about withdrawing consent, and the necessity of this for there to be a real change towards Liberty. We discuss many books that will help your search for Liberty, and talk about the founding generation.

Old war or new? "There is nothing new under the sun"

How true these words are.

The old war, Liberty vs. the State. Whether man can or should be free to do with his Life, Liberty and Property as he sees fit. Isn't Property all these 3?
The State, particularly the U.S. state, sees itself as the ultimate arbiter of all these things that the founders of this people took for granted as the basic Rights of man.
But how?
Isn't every politician voted into office but a mere mortal?
And yet these, these treacherous beings of the State, claim that some certain people are not worthy of Rights that others have.
Hmm.
The Japanese internment?
Who are these, mere mortals that will face the same judgment that all men will face, to decide what is right for you and for me?
Randy Weaver?
Waco?
Boston?
Our Liberty, the basic ones, the Unalienable ones, that De La Boetie and Locke showed for the world to see 300, no 450 years ago, that could not be infringed save the minimum tacit support of a people.
And at whose cost?
Those same people.
The Leviathan State of America routinely devours even the most basic human Rights that a person has.
The TSA? Airport security, what kind of people subject themselves to such ridicule, only to be told, "you don't have to fly."
And who are these gods that claim the right to hold you and touch you and prevent you from travel?
Mere men, most that were jobless before they became TSA "agents."
Law Enforcement officers are caught daily on camera beating, shooting, and abusing all manner of men, women and even children. The only "peace" they are concerned with is the peace of the State. Who are these brave Combatants that "risk their very lives" as they march into a protest of unarmed, sitting people, clubs swinging? Just other people. No more.
 We have a State department that has decided what things are not to be on the Internet. Every sort of filth is allowed by these gods, but not simple plans to build an even more simple gun. They claim ownership of these plans and say that mere mortals cannot have them.
Who are these gods in the State department? Just a bunch of people.

The Tyranny goes on and on; we live in a Corporate State that is literally feeding off the wealth of the people who live within its borders, in a way that has never before been seen in history. Their standard of living continues to rise and rise, while the sheep continue to feed them, and live on less, and are beaten and killed for asking why this is.
But I do think their time is short. Very short. The frantic way the State is increasing its militaristic approach on its "own people" tells me they are very afraid, and know their time draws to an end.

Psalms 3
 O Lord, how many are my foes!
    Many are rising against me;
many are saying of my soul,
    there is no salvation for him in God. Selah[a]
But you, O Lord, are a shield about me,
    my glory, and the lifter of my head.
I cried aloud to the Lord,
    and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah
I lay down and slept;
    I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.
I will not be afraid of many thousands of people
    who have set themselves against me all around.
Arise, O Lord!
    Save me, O my God!
For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;
    you break the teeth of the wicked.
Salvation belongs to the Lord;
    your blessing be on your people!

Patriot Militia Attacks Government Forces

Police and National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed Sunday by elements of a para-military right wing extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.
Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist militia faction has citizens who have links to the radical right wing tax protest movement. Gage blamed the militia for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices.
The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “terrorists,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government's efforts to secure law and order. The law enforcement team, augmented by elements of the National Guard, were sent to raid a militia arsenal after widespread refusal of right wing extremists to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons. This decision followed a meeting in early July between government and law enforcement which authorized the confiscation of the illegal arms, known as the weapons of choice among criminals and militias.
One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out “that none of these people would have been killed had right wing extremists obeyed the law and turned over the weapons voluntarily.”
Police and government forces initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily armed militia extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.
During a tense stand-off in Lexington ‘s town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right wing extremists. Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.
Ironically, the local citizens blamed the government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, heavily armed militia groups from surrounding areas had descended upon the police and guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by militia mobs, ordered a retreat.
Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor has also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government. Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist militia faction remain at large.

No, that did NOT just happen.

Thanks Claudio!

What if it was your kid?

A good friend asked me the other day; " I listened to your show last week, but I have to ask you, what if your child was one of the ones killed, would you be all "due process" then?"
A hard question if you answer it honestly. And there are a few things to say here about the State and Justice, but that is another topic.
I answered, but asked him back," No doubt that is a hard question, but what if YOUR child was the one being accused?"
No doubt, you would be a believer in Due process.
Due Process is the one thing I think that separated the union of States from the rest of the world.
No one, not one, could be deprived of Life, Liberty, or Property without due process of Law. If found guilty, the remedy was there.
Strange how Statism has struck during this tragedy. Folks who are totally against the State and against Obama, decided that in this instance, they are full supporters.
Again I ask, where are the Sons of Liberty? The defenders of Due Process? The Libertarian? The Liberal? The Conservative?
It is a slow fade, a fading into totalitarianism, with the cheers of the above mentioned.

I hope, I pray, that there are still the Remnant, the Radicals as they may be called, who will stand and say NO!

Truly George Washington's words are more true today than when the Colonists were fighting for their Liberty some 250 years ago; " The time is near at hand, whether Americans are to be free men, or slaves."

I choose to be free. You?

  

History repeats.

USA! USA! USA! or "It all started in Boston"

So went the chants of the feeble sheep in Boston after the accused "Boston bomber" was taken into custody the other day.
As everyone knows, Boston was in total lock down, of course none dare call it (save a few) Martial Law, people were simply asked to stay in the confines of their homes.
And the whole city obeyed without a peep.
I talked with some friends who were in awe how the "terrorists" were able to shut down Boston, and I agreed, but our view of the terrorists were different; in my view, the terrorist State shut down Boston.
Would Boston have shut down merely from the terror bombings? No, it took the terror of the State to do it.
Terror of the State?
I have read reports of the police State warning through loud speakers that, "if you want to live"... followed by whatever order they were giving. The police State going house to house, ordering serfs out of their homes, "hands up, hands up!!" all the while automatic rifles are pointed at the serfs' heads.
Is there any doubt that a wrong move, or failure to submit to the unethical, immoral, unlawful searches would have gotten a few serfs shot?
Every Natural Right that a human has was violated that day, and not a peep of resistance.
How is it, in the town of the Father of the Revolution, Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, the Sons of Liberty, the infamous Boston Tea Party, that no one even merely protested? In the town where the British were forced to remain in their ships in port and wouldn't dare walk the streets of Boston without heavy troop presence for fear of the Citizens of the town?
That great town of Boston, whose Citizens under heavy siege resisted the British at every point.
The Crown was their government, they didn't ever say otherwise, (except for a few of the Radicals like Adams and later with the Declaration of Independence) but they resisted their government for abuses of their Natural Rights as British subjects.
Where were the cries from the Bostonians last week to their fellow countrymen for relief during this siege? Would relief have come? 

Sad isn't the right word for what happened, but it's all I can feel.

Now the State has decided that this suspect, who is a U.S. citizen (whether he is or not doesn't matter to me), does not "deserve" his basic human rights and does not deserve to be given what was the cornerstone of the American experiment, no deprivation of Life, Liberty and Property without Due Process of Law.
The Tyrants McCain and Graham seethed that the suspect not be given Due Process, the very thing these 2 took an oath to defend. Graham went on to say how wonderful it would have been to have drones flying the skies of Boston to help in the search, and we find out now that they were. Maybe next time they can use a hell fire missile too!
Graham is right, the battlefield is on the American homeland, but that battle is between American Liberty and the State.



I can't help but wonder what Samuel Adams would say about this whole ordeal, and I think this one part of an essay he wrote tells it:
The liberties of our Country, the freedom of our civil constitution are worth defending at all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have receiv'd them as a fair Inheritance from our worthy Ancestors: They purchas'd them for us with toil and danger and expence of treasure and blood; and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle; or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men. Of the latter we are in most danger at present: Let us therefore be aware of it. Let us contemplate our forefathers and posterity; and resolve to maintain the rights bequeath'd to us from the former, for the sake of the latter. — Instead of sitting down satisfied with the efforts we have already made, which is the wish of our enemies, the necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude, and perseverance. Let us remember that "if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom." It is a very serious consideration, which should deeply impress our minds, that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event. 

 It all started in Boston.

Children belong to the State

Most people have seen this I suppose by now. Melissa Harris-Perry's MSNBC ad, saying that we need to get beyond the thought of children belonging to their own parents and family, and belonging to the community.
Community = State.

Hitler had similar thought on the subject.  “When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ [Hitler] said in a speech on November 6, 1933, “I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already. . . . What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’” And on May 1, 1937, [Hitler] declared, “This new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.”
We have to see things for what they are, and call it for what it is. These people are full on Fascist, and there is a war, as real as any war, for your children.
Fight for them.

Patriot's Lament February 23, 2013: Stop Talking and Get Sanctioned

In this episode, ok, in this episode, or at least during, I was seriously thinking of never doing this radio show again. It all just seemed fruitless, helpless, worthless. In the 20 months we have done the show, I felt like not one day had made any dent on the statist front. One caller said we needed to quit talking cause theory and thought is stupid (obviously) and we needed to just start shooting people in the face. I have long told that a revolution has to start with theory and thought. Not murder. Then, we have a caller who says if we don't revitalize the republican party all hope for the world is lost. You see why I seriously thought to never have the show again? But victory and Liberty is not for the faint of heart, my God said to Fear Not! So I shall not. A couple of callers inspired me to keep up the good fight, thank you all who support us with your calls and thoughts and prayers. Fight! THIS BATTLE IS NOT FOR THE WEAK. Liberty, She is beckoning, She is Right there, waiting for those who seek Her and wish to have Her. Liberty will prevail, despite all of Her enemies, we will have Liberty.

Patriot's Lament February 16, 2013: Property and Marriage

In this episode we talk about Absolute Property Rights again. We also talk about how the State uses "Patriotism" to our demise, "Don't revolt, just vote"!! Yeah right. We go on to talk about the gay marriage debate, and reject the State being involved with marriage at all. We pint out that the State can produce only bads, and we put Randy in our crosshairs and don't let him off the hook.

Patriot's Lament February 9, 2013: If God is Against Us and Force Them to Defend Us

In this episode we discuss whether God is on the side of the "U.S." or not. Or did He switch sides? We have a full hour of first time callers call in, and we ask if the state governments will  not protect us from Federal tyranny, and they just rubber stamp anything the Feds do, then why not just get rid of state government altogether?

Patriot's Lament February 2, 2013: Nullification and Don't Waste Your Time

Patriot's Lament January 26, 2013: Fallacies and Something to Fight For

In this episode we talk about fallacies the State employs against us, and how we would free ourselves from tyranny if we could see through it.
We also talk about homeschooling, and what things are worth fighting for, and as you might guess, politics isn't among the list.

None of these Rights are absolute...NONE of them

Sen. Durbin, makes it quite clear that he doesn't think any of our Rights are actually Rights, but merely things that he and his fellow goons can restrict and take away at will.
So, because some idiots elect him, he thinks he can decide what Rights I should be permitted to be allowed to have. Which Rights are not Absolute? NONE of them?

To quote from the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson has a differing view.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

Let's look to Jefferson's contemporary Noah Webster for the definition of the word "unalienable".

UNA'LIENABLE, a. Not alienable; that cannot be alienated; that may not be transferred; as unalienable rights.

So Dick, you tyrannical fool, you are wrong. And you sit there like you are some kind of scholer in Constitutional matters? Idiot. All of our Rights are Absolute. The only thing restricting them is this, again from Thomas Jefferson:
"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."

You can skip to minute 5:30 to see what I am talking about. Why isn't this one part of the conversation going viral? Why aren't people freaking out over this idiot's comment?
I guess I will be the start.
