Hurricane Sandy and the test of individuals

As Hurricane Sandy barrels down on the east coast, we are reminded of what is really important to us. We look to our families, to our structures, and to our achievements as individuals as we brace ourselves for the worst.

It is up to the individual to secure for himself and his family a strong building, and supplies to last through a storm and it’s aftermath.

It is the individuals and their inventions which give us structures to take shelter in, devices to track weather patterns, and storage to hold food during the storm.

It is the individuals who board up their homes to prevent glass breaking, who fill sandbags to prevent their homes from flooding, who store extra food and water for power outages. It is the individuals who will pick up the pieces after the storm has passed.

Do not look for government to help you during this mess. Take care of yourself, take care of your family. Always be prepared, and always improvise in times of need.

God speed to everyone in the path of the storm.

Romney supporters

In some ways I feel sorry for Romney supporters, in other ways I despise them.

I despise the fact that they close their minds to the truth, but I feel sorry for them in that they believe he will actually be a better president than Barack Hussein Obama.

Mitt Romney has been chosen for the office of presidency by a corporate elite. He is a blank canvas that any conservative can pin his hopes and aspirations to, in the same way that Barack Obama was a blank canvas in 2008 with his ‘hope and change’ platform. Mitt Romney is a shady character the same way Barack Obama was.

Here are some things to consider:

Mitt Romney avoided the draft during the Vietnam War by fleeing to France.

Mitt Romney looted from multiple companies during the 90’s

Mitt Romney exploded the debt as governor of Massachusetts.

Mitt Romney is not the solution to the problem, Mitt Romney is the problem.

Mitt Romney is one of the wall street guys who with the help of government, got us into the financial mess we’re in right now.

The media has done its job of fear mongering against Barack Obama, labeling him as a Muslim and a socialist. Barack Obama has not implemented socialism. Most of the bills he has signed into law have been fascist in nature.

Mitt Romney implemented Romney-care

Mitt Romney signed gun control legislation as governor of Massachusetts

Mitt Romney said he would have signed the NDAA act

Mitt Romney supports the Patriot Act

Mitt Romney supports the use of Drone attacks on American citizens

Mitt Romney supports the endless wars in the Middle-East

Mitt Romney is the same as Obama in almost every way.

What conservatives forget is that under the Bush administration the deficit skyrocketed. Obama simply stomped on the gas. Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are simply puppets carrying out a power grabbing agenda.

We have not had a real choice for president since Ronald Reagan, and he was never supposed to beat George Bush in the primaries. The republican establishment learned their lesson from this previous mistake, and shut down all debate with Ron Paul, who should have been the nominee. If the electoral process worked the way that it should, Ron Paul would be the republican nominee, and he would win by a landslide, in the same way that Ronald Reagan did.

But Romney is the nominee, and what a shame for this nation, that another corporate puppet is now up for auction to the white house. Another actor in chief.

Those of you voting for Romney to oust Obama will find out very quickly what a mistake you made when the economy crashes and a wider war in the middle east ensues.

Romney is not your friend, and he has no interest in preserving your liberties and freedoms. It will not take long after he is elected for you to find out that he is as much your enemy as Barack Hussein Obama is now.

What you’re intending to vote for is essentially the illusion of choice. Mitt Romney is a canvas that you will pin your hopes to in a vain effort to curb government growth. Mitt Romney is not interested in curbing government growth. He is only interested in wealth and power.

Remember that wars are the easiest reason to expand the government. Mitt Romney has already said that he would take military action against Iran. A war which has the potential to escalate into a World War III scenario.

Don’t vote out of fear of Obama in this election. Vote with your conscious  Vote for principles.

When you vote through fear, you will end up creating the very thing you thought you were voting against.

Remember that Mitt Romney has considerable power already.

He has substantial control of the media.

There are reports that he even has control of voting machines.

Are you sure you aren’t voting out Darth Vader simply to install the emperor?

If you want to start down the path toward real recovery and prosperity, there is only one choice for president this year.

The hard long slog for freedom will not be won in one election, but the foundation can be laid.

Live Free. Vote Gary Johnson 2012, the only real choice for freedom!

And just to be fair, here is one for the Obama supporters:

The republicans suck

No I’m not a democrat. I just don’t buy into the fallacy of ‘the lesser of two evils’.

My mailbox got spammed this week with letters to vote the democrats out of office for wasteful spending. All three of the letters said this:

“End the democrats’ wasteful spending.

Cut the deficit.

Cap Spending.

Balance the budget.

Vote Republican

Tuesday, November 6th”

What do you think I am; stupid? Seriously, do you think I’m suffering from short term memory loss? I seem to recall the republicans massively increasing spending while in office during the Bush administration. How is it any different if the democrats do it? Why is it that people allow themselves to be played when ‘the other side is doing it’ but forget when their ‘side’ does it?

And then there was a letter for John Boehner, which said:

“John Boehner Fighting for freedom. Making a Difference.”

Nice tag line, shame its all a complete lie. This scum bag is the one who read from a teleprompter during the RNC convention, and completely ignored shouts from the delegates during a robo call. Not to mention being speaker of the house during the signing of the NDAA act, of which I can’t remember him saying anything against. Freedom my foot. Boehner is just like every other politician, he doesn’t care about freedom, he only cares about money and power.

On one side of my street there is a lady with an ‘Obama/Biden’ sign. Lovely lady, very pleasant to talk to, I guess she just doesn’t get it. Across the other side of the street there are two other signs, one reads ‘Romney/Ryan’. Nice old couple, always decorate their yard for Halloween and Christmas. But I guess they don’t get it either, after all Romney is is practically Obama’s twin on almost every policy. Their other sign reads ‘Keep America free. Fire Obama’. While I agree with firing Obama, I disagree with the keeping America free part. As it stands today, America is not free. We have a long way to go to get back to freedom. But I understand the point of the sign.

The reason I say that the republicans suck, is because as they stand today, they vary very little from the democrats. I do tend to lean more republican because the democrats simply don’t get it. It’s very easy to vote for a ‘generic republican’ to get rid of a democrat, but that doesn’t solve anything unless the said republican is principled and sticks to what he preaches. I like republicans such as Ron Paul, Rand Paul, and former New Mexico republican governor Gary Johnson. These men represent the future of the party, if the party will adapt to our demands. As it stands today the collective republican party does not stand for liberty and free markets. It stands for big government and corporate fascism. It is very important to learn this in order to hold your representatives feet to the fire.

I will not be voting for Mitt Romney for a myriad of reasons. I will be voting for Gary Johnson. My generation is expected to foot the bill for the massive multi-trillion dollar deficit which has been run up by both the republicans and the democrats. We are expected to be used as cannon fodder for the increasing and unnecessary wars in the middle east, and we are expected to be used as collateral for the expansion of debts and growth of government over the coming years under both the republicans and democrats. For my generation, this simply will not stand.

5% of the vote splits the two party monopoly forever. The libertarian party will grow exponentially during this election period. The republicans will really have to dig deep and change their ways if they want to get our votes again. The children of the information age are growing up, and we’re mad as hell about all the silly games that have been played on our parents by this two party shenanigan, and we’re mad as hell that we’re expected to not only believe in these fairy tales from both parties, but to fight, die and slave for their mistakes.

As of right now the republicans suck, but there is a new party out there which is willing to embrace true guardians of liberty. The largest freedom movement since the days of Thomas Jefferson and the other founding fathers is upon us. Come join us and hold all the looters feet to the fire!

Live Free! Vote Gary Johnson for president in 2012!

Statism is dead

Here is a great series of videos from True News, on the philosophy of statism. There is a lot of great information packed into these videos. The videos talk about war, fiat currency, fascism, socialism, money, big government, spending, terrorism and human farms. There is a great deal of explanation that goes into these videos, with plenty of information to back up the arguments. It will take a while to watch them all; so grab a drink and a pen to jot down notes!

Part 1:

Part 2:

Part 3:

Part 4:

Part 5:

One of my favorite line’s was in part 5 when the narrator called taxation a form of terrorism.

I particularly liked the last three videos, and found them quite incite-full. How about you? What did you learn from the videos? What is your take on statism?

A real debate

The propaganda in the United States is so thick, so rampant, so all consuming, that until you unplug yourself from the television, and disconnect from your previous assumptions  you will never awake to the reality that both parties are essentially the same, and that both presidential candidates are bought and paid for corporate stooges.

The whole idea that Barack Obama is a socialist is laughable at this point. I mean; so what? Sure he might be, sure his beliefs might lean that way, but who cares? Do you not think that Obama has been painted as a socialist, and Romney as a capitalist just to give the media talking points and to distract and divide the public? When you look at the numbers; Obama’s administration has been little more than a continuation of big government Bush era policies. When it comes down to it he is little more than a bought and paid puppet. By comparison; so is Mitt Romney. Neither candidate stands for freedoms or capitalism. Both are corporatists who crave money and power.

It truly is shocking to realize that both candidates are just pawns in a bigger chess game, and that the voting public are little more than mindless sheep who have been led to believe that there is a difference, and that if they don’t vote for the lesser of two evils; they will bring about an end to freedom. What they don’t realize is that by voting for the lesser of two evils in the past; they have brought about the end of freedom already.

Freedom is dead. You’d better wake up soon and start fighting for it, otherwise it will never come back. The fight for freedom goes far beyond party differences. You must wake from within first.

The following link is a transcript from a real presidential debate between Gary Johnson and Jill Stein:

http://ivn.us/editors-blog/2012/10/19/jill-stein-and-gary-johnson-debate-transcript/

So while you’re watching the debate tonight just look to see if the two candidates talk about these things:

Ending the wars

Balancing the budget in 2013

Ending the Federal Reserve

Restoring a Gold Standard currency

Restoring our civil liberties and freedoms

Repealing the patriot act, the NDAA act, the TSA and homeland security

Cutting out agencies that are needless and too expensive

Or how about just having a basic plan to balance the budget right now, instead of allowing a monetary collapse or a wider war in the middle east.

I doubt any of this will be covered. But go ahead and get upset at Obama for ignoring Romney, or annoyed at Mitt for not pushing Obama. They’re both sellouts and they don’t care about you, me, or this country. They care about money and power and nothing else.

So if you’re planning on watching the debate; try watching it from an unbiased viewpoint, with the constitution in mind, and you’ll soon see that everything going on right now from the contenders to the media is all a huge chess game with you and everyone else as a pawn.

The battle for freedom will not be won by partisan hacks or politics as usual. It will not be won by democrats or republicans. The real debates won’t be left vs right, but will be about individuals vs the state. Freedom will be won by those who stick to principles.

King’s Island

My dog woke me up this morning with a slight whimper. He very quietly let me know that he needed to go outside. As I stood there watching him expertly catch the Frisbee in mid air while kicking up the morning dew from his precise gallop, I recalled the night before.

It had been a long week, work was steady with product coming in and out for the Christmas season, and I was able to buy myself a new car. Like all new gadgets, I was like a kid on Christmas, who couldn’t wait to open his presents.

Friday rolled around and I headed to work in my new mini tank, proud of the machine I had dreamed about for almost five years. I sat down at my desk and made fun of my co-worker while we discussed ideas to ship the product out on time. After landing several insults at each other in a playful school yard way, we spoke to the associates and started off the day. Once everything was shipped out and all the reports filled and put away, we powered down our systems and headed out. I went to the gym and did the last part of my four day split work out routine that I had been working on for the past several weeks. I did some bench pressing, among other triceps and chest exercises, then knocked out a few miles on the cycle machine, all the while thinking about the evening ahead.

I left the gym and headed home. I let the dog out and my wife rocked up blaring a new song in her car. She got out all happy and excited and in anticipation of the evening ahead. We put the dog inside and headed toward her parents house.

I pulled the new jeep into the driveway and my father in law came out with a smile on his face “nice car” he exclaimed while checking out the exterior. He jumped in and complimented me on my new purchase.

We drove down toward West Chester and went to a Greek restaurant that he had been wanting to take us to for a while. My mother in law was in Louisville for the day to visit family, so it was just my wife, my father in law and I for the time being.

We pulled into the parking lot, after going through several different neighborhoods and roads while my father-in-law recalled stories from his youth and plans for future development in the region. He ordered us some gyros and a plate of chips and salsa. The food was amazing and I will definitely be going back again soon.

After feeling refreshed from the delicious food, I fired up the young beast once more, and the new engine roared into life. We sped toward the infamous fear fest and King’s Island. When we got there, smoke was hanging around the park while zombies and other Halloween creatures lurked around every corner, praying on girlfriends, wives, and young boys.

We headed toward the blood-drums and watched the band play on their makeshift instruments. It was cool to see so many people standing around listening to this authentic music play, after the rumble and thump of dub-step music built up the momentum.

My mother-in-law then joined us and we rode on several rides. The weather was damp and drisly and kept most people away. Which meant that we could pretty much walk right on to any ride we wanted. We went through several haunted houses including ‘the slaughter house’ and encouraged a couple of girls to be brave and go on ‘flight of fear’. It felt good to see their faces light up after we got off the ride, and want to ride it again.

By the time 11pm rolled by, I was completely drained. The week had caught up with me, and the temperature was beginning to drop. I felt like one of the zombies as we walked onto ‘the stunt track’. I was enjoying listening to my family talk, even though I was barely registering my surroundings by this point. It was still nice to be out in the spooky atmosphere. We walked onto one more ride, the infamous ‘diamondback’ and the speed and acceleration of the tallest fastest ride in the park woke me up enough for me to drive home.

My mother-in-law took a quick look at my new car and complimented on how nice it was, but said that she would have to see it in the daylight to take it all in. She, like the rest of us had a long day, and was ready to go to bed. We said our goodbyes as they drove off and I proudly powered up the new beast once more. We cruised down the highway toward the house as I recalled all the other great times we had been to King’s Island since Brooke and I had first dated. We had a great experience, and look forward to future adventures at the park.
