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.
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
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:
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.
Balance the budget.
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!
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!
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?
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:
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.
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.
My old car was a 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo which has 210,000 miles on it. While the engine and transmission are running just fine, the rest of the car is falling to pieces and becoming increasingly unreliable.
I love automobiles, I love engineering. I love all technology which improves life and propels humans forward.
My wife bought her first car when we first got married and it has served us well since.
We have both chosen our cars for their quality and prices. Quality is extremely important in life. When you feel proud of something, you take care of it, and in turn it takes care of you.
Here is to my new jeep, and many great years of service!
When I moved here I was sold on the idea of freedom.
The United States of America as it stands today; is not a free country.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are not going to save this nation. These two men are parasites. Mitt Romney is not a great businessman; he is a looter of the highest caliber. Paul Ryan is not a great Ayn Rand prodigy; he is a moocher. Paul Ryan practically begged for the auto bailouts which Obama has been ridiculed for over the last four years. There is no clear evidence to prove there is any real difference in policy between a Romney and an Obama administration. Both men support more government, both men will destroy this country.
It is upsetting and infuriating to see people around you who believe in freedom, and yet do not know that they are part of the wall that separates all of us from it.
When it comes to spending and debt; wars are the highest cost. You cannot be pro liberty and pro war at the same time.
You cannot say that you believe in liberty and freedom of choice and be against legalizing drugs.
You cannot be for fiscal and personal responsibility and argue for different forms of medicare/Medicaid and social security.
It is up to individuals to make their own choices in life. If they make bad choices; they should pay the consequences. It is not up to me, you or big brother government to enforce our opinions on others. I do not want the DEA breaking down my door and shooting my dog because they got the wrong house on some stupid drug raid. I do not want my friends killed in some foreign land so that corrupt politicians can make a profit on an out dated fossil fuel. I do not want my wife grouped at an airport so that a corrupt company can make money on cancer giving body scanners. I want to be left the hell alone so that I can live my life as I see fit in my own way. That is what I thought this country was about. But apparently I was wrong. And the upsetting part is that so many people are so plugged into the system that they’ll even fight for bad parts of it, just so that other parts can’t gain control. But you know what? When you fight for evil; evil prospers. You cannot win in a rigged game.
When I first moved here I thought this country had avoided the pitfall of socialism and that freedom was flourishing. Unfortunately I found out that both Britain and America have both thrust themselves headlong down the path of totalitarianism. What a tragedy for all the brave men and women, for all the families of those who died in the last world war who thought they were fighting to preserve freedom and democracy in the world. Well to be fair, perhaps they did, at least for a few decades. But now, things are about as bad as they’ve ever been.
I like my father-in-laws concept (adapted from Nietzsche) about the overman. He calls himself the overman warrior. It means that he has become more than man, better than man if you will, and is a warrior for advancement past the usual pitfalls of life. The overman goes beyond petty emotions and is strong where others are weak. The overman sees through evil and does what is right no matter how great the adversaries.
At the young age of 17 Rich’s first book ‘the symposium of justice’ instilled a lot of great ideals in me. After having read his book, he suggested I read ‘the hero with a thousand faces’ by Joseph Campbell. The top three books that changed my life are Robert Kayosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad, Rich Hoffman’s ‘Symposium of Justice’ and Joseph Campbell’s ‘Hero with a thousand faces’. Between these three books during my teenage years, and some other great books since, I have been on a very different path than most. When you add that into having a great wife and having moved to a different country; it all adds up to a very different and very clear set of viewpoints on the world.
I absolutely adore Charlie Chaplin’s speech at the end of ‘the great dictator’. Every single time I watch his speech on YouTube I get a little choked up. How touching and how fitting it is for today’s global society, and how sad it is that it wasn’t paid attention to before all the killing of World War II.
“we don’t want to hate and despise one another…in this world there is room for everyone..” What a wonderful and touching thing to say.
I love capitalism, and when I say that I mean true lassie-fair capitalism. In its raw form it has brought the world from mud huts to skyscrapers, and from sweaty brick homes to air conditioned mansions. In its true form capitalism helps everyone.
I think the general population of the USA is being sold down the river in this election, in the same way they have been for the last few decades. It’s like the south park episode with the douche and the turd. Which crap do you want to vote for most?
I’m happy to report though, that there is a huge groundswell for liberty in this country. I love it’s history. People here have such an individualist attitude. Most people do not want to be told what to do.
There is a third option in this presidential race, and I am proud to say that I support it. I support it in the same way that the founding fathers supported and gave birth to the constitution.
I will help defend this fragile old document, because it is the most important thing worth saving in this country.
All the other subjects being talked about during the debates are just distractions to get you sold down the river.
Many people are still playing into the fallacy of republicans vs democrats. Does this really matter when our liberties and free markets are at stake?
There is only one candidate in the race for presidency who is for free markets and freedom, and it’s not Mitt Romney.
I get sad when I see political signs in people’s yards for Obama/Biden, it’s sad when people choose to ignore what’s going on around them. I get equally as sad when I see Romney/Ryan yard signs, because those people have learned nothing either.
I see republicans and democrats fighting over silly little issues when there are much larger ones at stake.
Why is it easier for many conservatives to believe Barack Obama is a communist Muslim, than simply a continuation of George W Bush?
Why is it easier for people to believe Romney is a fiscal conservative for small government, than a continuation of big government under Obama?
Why is it that instead of tackling the biggest deficit issue; which is our military spending and countless wars overseas, we are talking about shaving a hair here or a hair there off medicare and medicaid?
The elephant in the room is certainly the deficit, but you don’t hear about bringing the troops home and ending the massive military spending which is crippling this nation.
Why is it more acceptable to cut education and medicine, than our endless wars? Wouldn’t it be better to bring the troops home, slash military spending, cut taxes across the board and then start chipping away at the other issues? Wouldn’t this be a better way to allow individuals to create jobs?
The debates so far have been a complete farce. Oh sure, Romney and Ryan beat their counterparts, but doesn’t that seem like a hollow victory when they are almost identical in their big government agendas?
When we look at the media we see huge bias from both liberal and conservative news. Even in alternative media we have massive spin and bias stories. I believe people like Glenn Beck are masters of misinformation. Glenn talks of lowering the deficit, and yet shrieks whenever we don’t support Israel. A country which we send billions of dollars to every year.
Glenn protects Israel, which threatens Iran on a daily basis, and holds a stockpile itself of over 100 nuclear weapons. And yet demonizes all the Muslim countries, instead of promoting peace and trade.
Why are we not sitting down and looking at the real problems? Why are we continuing to allow ourselves to be played?
Yes, the liberals are starting to represent communism, but the conservatives are starting to resemble the Nazi’s of 1930’s Germany. Neither is acceptable.
Stop being distracted. Stop blaming each other. Look deeper into the issues. Liberty is at stake.
You are being played. Obedience to ‘the system’ only leads down the road to totalitarianism. Use your own mind.
Both the left and the right are controlled by outside influence. Break free of this system of oppression and form your own opinions.
It is not ‘left vs right’ it is ‘them vs us’. The central banks, and the shady people who control them from behind the scenes are the ones running the show. Stop being distracted. We can beat them, but only if you wake up.
Remember, the banks profited from the bloody wars of the 20th century, while millions were slaughtered. We have not had true capitalism since the early 20th century. Gold backed capitalist societies promote freedom. Endlessly printing paper money only leads to economic collapse and tyranny.
Mitt Romney is not going to save this country. Obama was elected for ‘hope and change’ anyone could pin their ideas to that. The same is true of Mitt Romney; people can pin their belief’s that he is a fiscal Conservative, free market man, and a limited government sponsor. In reality, when you look at the numbers, he is a big government spender, a fascist and a big government sponsor.
The shady flip flop nature of Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, and their media accomplices, help paint a bland picture that you can attach your aspirations to. In reality, they are both continuing the big government programs of the Bush administration. Nothing changes from one administration to the next.
So instead of being distracted and divided, you might want to look at the numbers and what is really going on behind the scenes.
There is a man running who would put a stop to all this, but he will only win if you have the courage to get out and vote for him. Romney will not change anything if elected, so don’t vote for him out of fear for more Obama. While he may be a Muslim or a Marxist, that does not change the fact that he has continued almost all of Bush’s policies, and continued to move us along a path of empire and totalitarianism.
The only way to break free of this is to do something drastic.
I am no longer distracted, and my fellow patriots will not be divided. For my generation it really is liberty or death. So who is brave enough to wake up, smell what’s really cooking, and join us to put a stop to corruption and restore this nation?
What if you all tell your friends what’s really going on, and we all vote for Gary Johnson in November? Will it actually make a difference if you vote for the lesser of two evils? Or will it make a real difference if we vote on principle and advance the cause of liberty?
