"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!
Jeffrey Tucker will be joining us on the Patriot's Lament radio show tomorrow morning Saturday the 26th at 9 a.m. Alaska time. (10 a.m. pacific.)
Tune in on the web here (660 KFAR) and click the "listen live" tab.
It's gonna be awesome.
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.
The other LIE, is if the U.S. government doesn't raise the debt ceiling then the government will default.
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.
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.
