I will not fight

Violence is not the answer. War is a racket; it is always started by deception, and there are always special interest groups who profit, while the blood of innocents is spilled.

If you want a war, go start it on your own. Don’t call for a war and then expect the youth (and hope) of the nation to go and die for it.

I will have nothing to do with the next war, I refuse to give my life for a senseless cause, so that others may profit from my plight.

I call on the non aggression principle. I will not attack unless I am personally attacked. I will vehemently pose my opinions and express my views, but I will not attack others.

It takes more courage to be peaceful in times of outrage, than to be barbaric and lash out.

There are many intricate webs of lies floating around to do with our government, our officials and their intentions. There are conspiracy theories, pressure groups and special interests lining the halls of congress.

If you want a revolution, if you want to retake this country, rebuild it, make it more free, you cannot do it through violence. You cannot beat the US Army as it currently stands. You cannot take out certain government officials, there is too much security through the hundreds of different government agencies. But what you can do, using the non aggression principle is make alliances, make friends, spread your viewpoints, agree with other people, get them to see your points of view, build relationship bridges based on freedom. Remember that an army does not fight unless it believes in the cause for which it is fighting. As it stands right now, many security and army forces in the US do not believe in Barack Obama or his policies.

You should continue to point out Obama’s mistakes, but perhaps you should look at your own party and your own weaknesses also. The democrats as they stand today base everything on some kind of welfare; which overtaxes and overwhelms the entire system. By contrast the republicans as they stand today base everything on some kind of warfare; which overtaxes and overwhelms the entire system. Welfare and warfare are extremely expensive and neither are sustainable. Welfare rots away society from the inside, and warfare rots it away from the outside. Our actions overseas make us weaker and actually creates more terrorist cells which will do harm against us. We are not a popular nation right now; precisely because of our overbearing and ugly foreign policy.

If you want to fight the system; do it non-violently; use civil disobedience. You can stop working so much and give up your luxuries if you don’t want to be looted. You could go galt or you could find loopholes and find more tax write offs. Do whatever you can to undermine the looters complex, but do not get into fights with the ignorant, or the protectors of the ignorant. Peace is a better alternative. The longer we sustain peace, the longer we have to teach those who do not know yet how to think for themselves. The seeds that you sow today will bloom later down the road when they are needed.

Peace leads to more trade, more designs, more prosperity and a better future. War only leads to ruin.

I will not fight. I will continue to educate those who are unaware for as long as I can until the fight comes to me, only then will I pick up arms, and only in self defense as a last resort.

A mixed economy will destroy itself

A mixed economy is a mixture of freedom and controls—with no principles, rules, or theories to define either. Since the introduction of controls necessitates and leads to further controls, it is an unstable, explosive mixture which, ultimately, has to repeal the controls or collapse into dictatorship. A mixed economy has no principles to define its policies, its goals, its laws—no principles to limit the power of its government. The only principle of a mixed economy—which, necessarily, has to remain unnamed and unacknowledged—is that no one’s interests are safe, everyone’s interests are on a public auction block, and anything goes for anyone who can get away with it. Such a system—or, more precisely, anti-system—breaks up a country into an ever-growing number of enemy camps, into economic groups fighting one another for self preservation in an indeterminate mixture of defense and offense, as the nature of such a jungle demands. While, politically, a mixed economy preserves the semblance of an organized society with a semblance of law and order, economically it is the equivalent of the chaos that had ruled China for centuries: a chaos of robber gangs looting—and draining—the productive elements of the country.

A mixed economy is rule by pressure groups. It is an amoral, institutionalized civil war of special interests and lobbies, all fighting to seize a momentary control of the legislative machinery, to extort some special privilege at one another’s expense by an act of government—i.e., by force. In the absence of individual rights, in the absence of any moral or legal principles, a mixed economy’s only hope to preserve its precarious semblance of order, to restrain the savage, desperately rapacious groups it itself has created, and to prevent the legalized plunder from running over into plain, unlegalized looting of all by all—is compromise; compromise on everything and in every realm—material, spiritual, intellectual—so that no group would step over the line by demanding too much and topple the whole rotted structure. If the game is to continue, nothing can be permitted to remain firm, solid, absolute, untouchable; everything (and everyone) has to be fluid, flexible, indeterminate, approximate. By what standard are anyone’s actions to be guided? By the expediency of any immediate moment.

The only danger, to a mixed economy, is any not-to-be-compromised value, virtue, or idea. The only threat is any uncompromising person, group, or movement. The only enemy is integrity. -Ayn Rand ‘The Obliteration of Capitalism”

I got home early from work yesterday and laid down for a quick power nap. I was feeling a little tired, but I was in a great mood since my wife was home, the sun was shining and it was warm outside. My dog jumped up on the bed and laid down next to me as I fell into a meditative sleep. About an hour later my wife came into the room and her phone went off. I was still sleeping, but could hear everything she was saying. I could hear and feel her getting more and more frustrated on the phone. Finally, after saying “no” several times, my wife said “you know what?” to her self, looked at the phone and clicked the red cancel button. By this point I had woken up and I asked her; “what was that all about?” Brooke explained the story to me, and basically; one of the sites that we use to advertise for our photography was calling to check our information. Brooke was very pleasant with the lady on the other end for the first couple of minutes, but the lady kept asking for our credit card information so she could update our account to a premium service. The amount was not very much, but my wife told her that we’re cutting our bills right now and we don’t need the premium service. The lady kept pushing her, and my wife kept telling her “no”. Eventually; like I said; my wife hung up the phone, and went to her hair appointment. Again; by this point I was awake, and I started thinking about something similar that had happened to my website domain provider. Being in network marketing and having various websites to run, I use one of the premium website providers to buy and keep my domain names. While checking my account the other day, I realized that I was being charged for renewing websites I no longer used. Basically, the site had put an automatic renewal on all my previous purchases. This is not something I had selected, and having used the site for several years, I knew this was a new thing, since I’ve had old domains expire in the past. Naturally I was quite irritated that I was being charged extra for things that I did not want. So I made sure to sit down and sift through all the domains and products I’ve had or used in the past, and deselect everything that was coming up for ‘automatic renewal’.

Now I must point out that the sites I’m talking about are not important, and this is not a dig at them. It is simply to illustrate how a mixed economy will destroy itself when it ceases to grow.

Right now our economy is flat-lining. Have you noticed all the cheap deals lately? All the little extra services for just $10? Have you noticed how pushy salespeople are with you on the phone, just to get an extra couple of bucks?

While the fed prints money out of thin air and the government spends our future away on all its stupid projects, while strangling growth with regulations and taxes. We the people are struggling to get by and are losing our jobs left and right.

A return to lassie-fair capitalism and libertarian principles of government, is the only way back to prosperity.

The fight for liberty will never cease and it is up to every individual to stand up and do his or her part.

Do everything you can to secure your own personal liberty. Cut down your debt, create more money for yourself through network marketing, through ebay, or whatever spikes your interest. The more independent you become, the better you will feel. And don’t let sites push you around and make you spend ‘a little extra’ unless you really want it!

Your personal capital, and your role in real capitalism will help get us out of the current ‘mixed economy’ mess. Secure your own future, and the nation will thrive.
